My Pittsburgh Area Numiez, the South Hills Coin Club of Bethel Park PA will be holding their 60th anniversary coin show on February 1st and 2nd. I believe it is important, even in the age of online auctions, to attend shows, even the smaller ones. By attending smaller shows and supporting their bourse, you are keeping many small part time dealers in the game and you are stimulating the local coin community.
The South Hills Coin Club show will have approximately 40 dealers and will also have door prizes and other fun stuff throughout the 2 days. The Show hours are 1000-1700 on Saturday and 1000-1500 on Sunday. So if you're in beautiful Western Pennsylvania, jump on the Parkway and find yourself at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. I will be helping at the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) each day and our table will have free foreign coins, Beaver Falls Centennial medals, and Lincoln Cents for the younger ones. We will have a friendly handshake and lots of coin talk for us older ones. My partner Tom may also bring a display case with his awesome display of Swedish Plate Money. Cya There.
