Baltimore Show Review 11/4/10 – 11/6/10
There was a large attendance for the show that gave each day a nice buzz in the room. The spring and fall shows in Baltimore are must attends for any serious dealer or collector. These shows are only surpassed by the exceptional F.U.N. show in Florida in January.
After 28 years, the ANA was as close to our backyard as could be. The northeast is a nice area for coins and collectibles so we were hoping for a strong attendance so the show would be back near us again soon. Wednesday & Thursday were decent but the August vacation month really took a toll on the public attendance the last 2 days. In general, I would call is a so-so ANA.
World’s Fair of Money holds rare, precious, historic artifacts

In Blackbeard’s day, “coin collecting’’ meant swashbuckling, flying a Jolly Roger flag, and making rivals walk the plank at swordpoint. Today, it is a little tamer.
A new breed of collectors filled Boston’s Hynes Veterans Convention Center yesterday, traveling from table to table instead of sea to sea. But what they are searching for has not changed at all: treasure.
Welcome to my world. It seems like every week we get coins sent to us for evaluation from clients and non-clients alike for evaluation that they purchased elsewhere sometimes before they met us and sometimes after they met us. Without fail there are coins that are overgraded, slightly cleaned or else just not as described. However, every so often I get a coin that borders on the criminal.
