The 2018 World's Fair of Money opens tomorrow. Wish I was there!
I was in Philly for the 2000 WFM. Great show, and busy! That Sat. afternoon, I could hardly walk through the aisles. And so much history. I visited Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the Mint. I paid tribute to Peter the Eagle. Weather was perfect, and the food was good too.
This year's show features some true rarities, not modern coins in top grade or fads, but true rare coins. The Brasher Doubloon, coins of 1792, the 1933 $20. I often say, it's worth a trip to a major show to see these coins.
And what could be found browsing the bourse? Anything, just about...Kennedy half dollars, proof sets, gold, Morgans, commems classic and modern, a Chain cent or two, and maybe a new discovery.
Don't forget the exhibits, many museum quality! Much can be learned in this section of the floor.
Have a great time, all conventioneers. Wish I was there!
