Hi YoungInvestor, For dealers, just hit the bourse floor and look for anyone with a sign that says they're buying or trading the types of coins you collect. For trading with other collectors, you might look into attending a club meeting. There are several of different collector interests; check out the full schedule at http://worldsfairofmoney.com/schedule.aspx Otherwise, talk to other collectors at the show. Get to know people. Before long, you'll find somebody willing to make a trade. :)

Is there a place at the show where you could trade coins with other collectors or dealers? P.S. I plan to go to this show. Pat-YoungInvestor
