I set up at this show with fairly low expectations as the Boeing show in late January was a bit ho hum, average at best.
Drive down was a breeze, an hour an forty five minutes, i live north of Seattle. Dry roads and a sunrise along the way, so very nice to have the days getting longer!
Show opened at 10 with just a few folks in the door, however within a half hour it was downright busy.
Sales were very brisk all the way up until 3 (show closes at 4) and then the hall pretty much emptied out.
Most of my sales were as usual collector type coins 10 to 200 dollars/coin.
I sold about 10 graded coins 125 to 500 per coin and one high end slab.
I also sold a couple of gold generic 5 Libs, i had previously sold zero gold the last 2 shows.
Grossed more in 6 hours yesterday than both days at the January show!
My takeaway was most collectors continue to buy somewhat cautiously, i am selling a fairly high volume of lower value material.

    A large number of collectors seem to be fed up with the high cost of playing the plastic and sticker game. Collecting raw coins with much lower prices than the plastic and sticker stuff is making a comeback. They just need to be wary of counterfeits.

    All glory is fleeting.

    I'm glad your sales picked up Daryl. I have friends, newbies, who went to the show and they tell me they had a good time and the dealers were patient with them.
