The Best Coin Show In Pennsylvania In the Fall! Word!!

Coin Shows | Just Mokie

Nowadays, a lot of us, including me, buy most of our coins via the internet. This is way different from when I started collecting back in the late 1960's. In those days, even Department Stores had a coin and stamp counter, Heck even the local Woolworth's had a section of the store where you could buy a Red Book, a Lincoln Cent Folder, and all the other associated supplies. Local coin shops, at least in the Pittsburgh area, were plentiful, and there was always mail order through a dealer you might have spotted in Coins Magazine, or the Numismatic News. Those days are gone, for the most part, but the local, regional, or national coin shows are still around and are still one of the best ways to fill your want list, meet your fellow collectors (I really do feel completely at home surrounded by my fellow hobbyists), and even learn a thing or two. The Pennsylvania Numismatic Association (PAN) is hosting their Fall show this week, 17-19 October, in beautiful Monroeville PA. There will be about 120 dealers, ANACS will take your coins for grading, and there are a number of speakers, to include Clifford Mishler, holding forth on the 18th. As if that wasn't enough, here are the top 11 reasons you should attend the Fall PAN show:1. Parking is Free, Admission is Free, Spending time at the traveling Burns Library is Free, Distinguished Speakers are Free, and the KidZone is Free (for all YNs under 18).2. Clifford Mishler is going to speak about the remarkable Chet Krause on Friday afternoon. Cliff is a personal Numismatic Hero of Mine.3. The weather should be excellent with no rain, or snow, or other natural calamities in the forecast.4. Monroeville is conveniently located off the Pennsylvania Turnpike for those of you coming from other parts of Pennsy.5. Monroeville is just a Parkway, a tunnel, and a Parkway from beautiful downtown Pittsburgh.6. The concession stand in the convention center actually has moderate prices, an excellent breakfast burrito, and a $5 soft drink you can refill for free all day long.7. The convention center is adjacent to the Monroeville Mall, which is WORLD FAMOUS for being the Mall featured in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead.8. Clubs including the Harrisburg Coin Club, the West Penn Coin Club, the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, Western Pennsylvania Numismatic Society, PAN, and the Barber Coin Collectors Society, will be present to answer your questions and solicit your membership.9. There will be outstanding competitive exhibits available for your viewing pleasure and you can vote for Best of Show.

Coin Show Tips

Coin Shows | user_55042

Hello everyone, if you are planning on going to a coin show at all in the future, I recommend you read this.Coin shows are very fun to go to and if you are looking to buy anything from numismatics to bullion coin shows have really good deals to buy that stuff. I am going to tell you some coin show tips.The first thing is that when you are looking through a dealers coins, never put your hands by your pockets or bags because they might think you are stealing their stuff. Also don't put your bags on your lap, put them behind or underneath your chair. If you are looking through coins make sure to remember what came from what box and put the ones you don't want in the right place. Another thing to keep away from the table is your books or checklists because people can slip coins into them. When handling coins always handle them like they are yours; carefully and by the edges.Now that you know your coin show etiquette I'm going to teach you some ways to get good coins for good prices. The first thing you need to do before the coin show is study. You need to study as much about numismatics as you can. Know the the price you want to pay for different coins and know the key dates. If you know all of that you will be able to buy good things, and if you want, make money on them. If you see a bin of junk silver, search through it for good coins that are worth the price. Also, ask dealers if they have a "sale" or "bargain" bin (most have them). If they have it, search through it and try to find something that is worth more than what you are going to pay for. Also at coin shows, you can always make the dealers an offer on their things sometimes they will agree or maybe bring the price down to what they want. Next, it's time for what you should bring. This is mainly for big coin shows but bring good walking shoes, you will be walking a lot. Bring lots of cash because if yo don't you will be wishing you did. Also if you have things that you want to buy specifically, make a list and bring it. Something that you will really need, is a magnifying glass/ loup.If you have a coin that yo want to sell or figure out the value of, bring it to a coin show. The people there are really nice and will help value your coin. Some people will even buy the coin (look for tables with "buying" signs.The next time you go to a coin show, remember these tips and have fun.

Most of us in the hobby have a special place in our heart for the Coin Show. Whether it be a large national show like Worlds Fair of Money, a strong regional show, like FUN or Long Beach, a smaller show like PAN, or the smallest shows organized by local clubs with maybe 30 participants at the bourse. Regardless of the size of the show, they all have one thing in common, US, the Numismatist, filling our albums, finding our treasures, and trying very hard to instill the love of our hobby to the next generation.

This also is one of the best ways to purchase coins, tokens, medals and paper money. Some people prefer the anonymity of the Internet, but the prices can be higher there. Overall, you can’t beat the fun and camaraderie of being part of a hobby community.
