Baltimore Winter Expo

YorkshiremanYorkshireman Posts: 4,494 ✭✭✭✭✭

I'm thinking of arranging a business trip up east to include a visit to the Expo next month.
I haven't been to Baltimore in quite a few years.

Who thinks it is a good show?
Who doesn't?

    I think it's a good show, for no other reason than I've had fun every time. Lots of people, lots of dealers, lots of coins, especially for a darksider like me. I'd be going if not for that pesky thing called work.

    Usually a decent show. Depends what you are selling or buying.

    I think the November and March Whitman Baltimore shows are great ones, and the summer show (June) is OK. The location draws a lot of collectors and dealers, and benefits from the large number of collectors and dealers within a short drive, train, or plane flight.

    I will be attending, and we will have three tables all under Table #818 (W. David Perkins Numismatics and Gerry Fortin Rare Coins). Stop by and say hello if you are at the show!

    I think the Winter show is good and may attend it as well. Wouldn't mind meeting you there if I make it.

    Usually the best one of the year for the Baltimore/Whitman series in terms of number of dealers, variety of coins and activities in which you and/or your young numismatists can engage.

    It is a good one and a very well run show. I even got a call from Whitman this week, just checking to see if we were OK in case the fires were near us.

    I am booked an ready for the show.

    Because of the Phili PCGS Show next week, I don't think you will see many of the regular west coast dealers attend Batimore this time.

    Whitman does run a good show. Suggested days of attendance: Thur+Fri

    Ok, I'm going.

    Follow up question:
    Any members of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club here and going to that convention?

    I collect world coins that circulated in early America. Anyone else do something similar?
    If so, I'd like to meet you while there.
