We really do feel like we are on the cusp of new horizons. But in the same breath, we are all waiting for that ice breaker. Last week at this time, we were betting on Summer FUN. Cindy Wibker, the FUN bourse chair, expressed confidence that the event was a go. Rob and Robbie went so […]

As the old saying goes, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Within the last week, many states have restarted their stalled economies, lifting stay at home orders and reopening businesses. In our estimation, this day is long overdue. We were one of the fortunate businesses that was able to remain open. We […]
What started as a health crisis has evolved into something far greater. At risk, is our country’s economy. Fortunately the states (especially those less affected by the pandemic) seem to realize the true impending disaster, as they have begun reopening for business. This is an encouraging sign for the coin business. We now can envision […]
There is not much new to discuss. We have been steadily buying and selling coins, albeit from the inner confines of our office suite, and with little or no human interaction. The fact that parcels keep coming and going daily is encouraging, and in that regard, we are just fine with the status quo. However, […]
Chances are if you’re reading this, you are equally as sick of staring at the same walls as we are. We realize that we are luckier than most. At least, we get to change AM and PM venues. Nonetheless, for those of us that spend much of our time on the road, this is a […]
One of our longtime collector friends alluded to buying beautiful coins because they provided him security. At the time he made that point, we didn’t pay much attention.

One thing is for sure and that is this pandemic has created a lot of uncertainty. Fortunately, new models seem to indicate that although COVID19 is an extremely serious disease, the mortality rate is not nearly as high as originally thought.

Last night, I started typing this post, trying to figure out what I was supposed to say. This morning, I am revising it, with I want to say. There are so many different things happening everyday that evoke different moods and feelings, sometimes writer’s block is the end-game. Hence was the case yesterday. With both […]
Of all things, who would have guessed that numismatics would be seeing a spike in activity during a global health crisis? While hand sanitizer and isopropyl alcohol are still unavailable, coins thankfully are not. The last that we checked, they were not exactly an essential item either. We are blessed by this developing trend, but […]
The famous 19th century showman, P.T. Barnum is often credited with coining the phrase, “The show must go on”. Whether he actually did or not, is less important than the meaning. Current circumstances have taught us to become chameleons. It’s either that, or starve. For us at The Reeded Edge that has meant quickly instituting […]
