    I'd sure love to go to this show one day. "My" show (Long Beach) is dead in the water and it's a huge bummer. I had great times there over the years but now....argh.

    Have fun at FUN!

    Thursday. I have Friday off as well but I am not sure I want to make the 2hr drive two days in a row like I have in the past. I think I will try to get everything done in one day.

    It will be better if you get there by Friday. Some dealers start pulling up stakes by Friday afternoon. Sunday can look like a large local show.

    Friday for me, most likely, I’m local(ish).

  • ElmerFusterpuckElmerFusterpuck Posts: 4,611 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I will miss this year's show, but that's because I'm taking time off later in the month. After I retire next year, I can have all the FUN I want! Kinda bummed, I'd love to see those halves from @lkeigwin.

    I will be back at my usual table after missing FUN last year for the first time in 35+ years due to the Southwest Airlines meltdown - (I booked Delta nonstops this year, once burned...).

    I promise to have less than 5% coins at my table.

    There should be a place for collectors to post a want list for dealers see, and reply if they will bring those coins to the show.

    It's light but very strong canvas, and has a great zipper. Now all I have to do is to remember to not leave it at a Dealer's table, lol.

    @winesteven It looks like you could find it easily if you did leave your bag at a Dealer's table. I gotta get one of those bags!

    The last few shows, I was nervous, clumsy and overly concerned about proper show etiquette after going through stuck SDB issues (tellers were banging on the framework with hammers to free the coin-filled SDB from the framework!), traffic jams, and even "the runs" on the way to the show. I hadn't been to shows in decades. And here I was, looking to make serious purchases face-to-face with the biggest dealers and amongst the star collectors, and I was a mess leaving everything everywhere. The dealers have been great, though. Very trusting with large purchases by check, which is wonderful.

    I just booked a room for two nights 0.8 miles from the OCCC. No more driving down for only 3 hours of FUN. I'll be there from Thursday until Saturday. I want to relax and enjoy myself with other coin collectors again.

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?



    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.



    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.
