Newps & Central States Show Report

April 29, 2012


We were happy to have a table at the recently-completed Central States show held in Schaumburg, IL.  We had a good show, and met a lot of new customers and dealers.  Thank you to all of our customers and also those who sold coins to us.  We have close to 40 newps that are now listed and pictured.  Central States is a show held in a great location and it draws a considerable number of collectors and dealers.  The only thing we aren't fond of is the timing.  The show started on Thursday the 19th, which is 2 days after tax day.  Those people who had to pay in were low on funds to buy coins, and those who were getting refunds, but filed in the prior month, hadn't yet received their refunds.  Auction results were mixed as some coins sold for quite high prices, while other coins went lower than expected.  The market seems to have what I would call "hidden strength".  That is, there is strength but it isn't obvious.  For example, I still collect and one of my collections is clad Washington quarter varieties.  From all you read, that would seem to be a relatively sluggish area, but prices in the auction for that material were strong.  

All of our coins including the following newps are posted on our website  If you see any coin(s) of interest, please call (717)533-2935 or (717)579-8238 (cell) or e-mail us at to reserve the coin(s) that you want.
