2017 International Paper Money Show

I see that this show is being moved to Kansas City this year which makes it very close for me.

I realize it is a paper money show but could someone tell me what the ratio is for currency vs coins? I only ask because in the materials I have read there is going to be a type set of US Coins on display and that it is fairly nice. Is there a lot of crossover?

    It is virtually currency only. On occasion I will see a few coins in a dealer's case.

    I specialize in Wisconsin currency! Looking for information on WI national banknotes. Census stands at 12,318 notes.

    Agreed - this has always been THE show for paper money. If you're a round-metal-disk guy, you'll find a better selection at the weekly show in a local VFW hall that you will at IPMS.

    Thanks for the input. That is what I was expecting to see. I am shiny round disc guy. :smiley: but I am going to go to this show anyway. I do collect some currency so I will get some benefit from attending; even if only for 1 day.

    Not a problem - if you make it, stop by the Exhibit area. I happen to be one of the Exhibit Co-Chairman and will be happy to give you a "nickel" tour.

    Who is going to SPMC Breakfast on Friday morning! An event that is not for the faint of heart or the picky breakfast consumer. I am anxious to experience the KC venue for this (Harvey's at Union Station) as it's a brisk 7 minute walk from the Sheraton - - walking in any direction for 7 minutes from the old Memphis hotel would have required boldness and perhaps some Kevlar. Very exciting. Who's in?

    Lol, I'll be there! Let's not stay out too late the night before. I was hurtin' at last year's breakfast! :)

    As usual, Cliff once again bought the first ticket for the SPMC breakfast. This year's breakfast, which costs $20, features an all-you-can-eat buffet of wonderful high-cholesterol goodies. Don't worry, though, we do have a couple of medical personnel on the SPMC Board so, if anyone develops an artery problem during the breakfast, we will be able to resuscitate you! You can order your ticket through the SPMC website or get in touch with me.

    Also, we still have some exhibit space open so let me know if you would like to exhibit. Remember, exhibitors get in free during the show and also during the dealers' hours.

    I went to all 40 Memphis shows but I am not going to Kansas City. I have talked to a number of collectors and a few dealers and have not found one that is going. Also Long Beach is the same weekend.

  • TootawlTootawl Posts: 6,246 ✭✭✭

    Why are so many not going to Kansas City? Is it the location or Long Beach the same weekend?

    I think that it could be both.

    _Why are so many not going to Kansas City? _

    I'm curious as to who the "so many" are - we've got our usual two dozen exhibitors who have already sent in their Exhibit applications (except Tookybandit - hi Bob). Also, the reservations for the SPMC Breakfast are running ahead of last year's pace. I've also heard from several collectors who are thrilled the show is in KC because of easier flight connections. I know, because of Long Beach, we'll probably miss out on some West Coast attendees but, otherwise, the show is looking pretty good.

  • TootawlTootawl Posts: 6,246 ✭✭✭

    Easier Flight? Try more expensive from the Baltimore/DC area.
