Central States Show - - A good show
We are usually in the Chicago area for two shows a year - - Central States and ANA.  But this year's ANA show is in Anaheim, California, so Central States is our one Chicago area show in 2016.  Central States is a four-day show, Wednesday thru Saturday.  Wednesday is dealer set-up and the early birds are admitted starting at noon.  As a result, Wednesday was a slow day.  But Thursday thru Saturday were busy.  In fact, our highest sales were on Saturday!  I was happy to meet several long-time customers, many of whom we see every year.  I want to thank my table assistant Len Augsburger for doing his usual great job at the show!  

We are seeing that sales at shows are sometimes good and sometimes average.  Websites are better than ever, and pictures on many coin websites are better, plus good return policies allow collectors to buy coins from the privacy and security of their homes.  What this means is that we  are selling more and more coins from our website, and therefore we are less dependent on sales at shows.  We will continue setting up at shows because many clients want to see our coins in hand at a show, and we enjoy meeting our clients, and we will be happy to sell as many coins as we can at those shows, of course.  
Our newps include part 2 of our Baltimore newps, plus a collection of Capped Bust half dimes we recently acquired, and also our Central States newps.  Highlights of our newps are a nice 1846 half dime in PCGS VF-20, an 1820 JR-2 "Office Boy reverse" dime in NGC MS-62, an 1833 R6 dime in PCGS VF-25, the rare business strike 1867 dime in PCGS F-12, some nice PCGS graded Bust quarters incl. 1805 B-5, 1818 B-7, 1818 B-9 both EDS and LDS, 1819 B-4 MDS, 1825 B-1; a nice 1810 Bust half in NGC XF-45 with nice toning, an 1882 half in PCGS F-15, a gorgeous 1868 Seated dollar in PCGS AU-55 with nice toning, an 1871 Seated dollar in PCGS XF-45 with the most colorful toning I have ever seen on a Seated dollar, and a gorgeous 1964-D Kennedy half with fabulous toning.

How Do We Decide Where to Display Our New Purchases?
A collector needs to spend time, money, and effort to attend a coin show.  My view is that I should have some new purchases in my display cases that have not yet been displayed on my website.  After the show, those new coins will go onto the website.

When I buy coins at a show, some coins go into the case and some do not.  One reason for that is that I can't come home and issue a newsletter that says, "Every coin I bought at the show, was sold at the show, so I don't have any newps for my website clients."  Other reasons include coins whose attributions haven't yet been verified, and coins which I haven't yet decided on a price.

Upcoming Events
Our next show isn't for a while, which means I will have time to reorganize my office.  I will attend my first Summer FUN show July 7 - 9 in Orlando, FL, followed by ANA's World's Fair of Money August 9 - 13 in Anaheim, CA.
