June Coin Shows Rapidly Approaching

June is traditionally a travel month for us, and this year will be no exception. The Spring coin show schedule will conclude with two of our favorite venues, Raleigh, NC and Baltimore, MD. Rob and Robbie will head to The North Carolina State Fairgrounds next week for the annual Raleigh Coin Show. This  show is truly a collector favorite, always drawing a robust crowd. The mix of over 100 dealers is really diverse, spanning everything from small shop owners to prominent national rare coin firms.  This is one of the components that keeps the Raleigh show interesting. Historically, we have had some great coins show up at Raleigh, so we will see what this year’s venue yields. No sooner do we get home from Raleigh, and then 9 days later, the guys are back on the road to Baltimore, MD. for the Whitman Baltimore Coin and Collectibles Exposition. This is flat-out one of the finest coin shows in the country. Although Whitman’s June venue is the smallest of their 3 annual Baltimore shows, it still ranks very high on our list; after all, even an entry level Mercedes is still a Mercedes! We will have a more detailed preview of the upcoming Raleigh show on next week’s Market Report News, with Baltimore’s preview to follow a week later.
