Coin Market Steady – Dealers Flock to Long Beach; Next up, Annandale

Although we are not attending this week’s Long Beach Coin and Collectible Expo, the reports that we are getting from our agents are favorable. Activity seems to be brisk and coins are selling, which are both positive signs. Here on the home front, we are seeing much of the same. Orders in the office have […]

Coin Market Unaffected by Financial Market Volatility

We have always professed that the coin market largely marches to it’s own music. At no time has this been more apparent than during the last two weeks. While the financial markets have been on daily roller coaster, the coin market seems to be sailing on glassy seas. This is consistent with an observation we […]

The Reeded Edge Heads to St. Louis for The Greater American Coin Fair

It’s that time of year again where we brave the unpredictable elements, and travel to an area where weather can always be a challenge in February, but the show always seems to pay dividends. We are referring to the active Greater American Coin Fair located at the Airport Hilton, literally across Highway I-70 from the […]

A Great Vienna Show Offers Promise for the Future

We didn’t know what to expect in Vienna, VA last weekend. After all, it had been 3 years since we had last done this venue, and we we unsure of whether the redesign of the community center would help or hurt it. The other uncertainty was the Vienna mail list, as this was an aging […]

The Reeded Edge Heads to Vienna, VA for the Resurrected Vienna Quarterly Coin Show

As many of you are aware, this was for many years one of the […]

Lackluster Wilmington Coin Show Demonstrates Ongoing Struggles of Club Shows

Last weekend’s Wilmington Coin Show demonstrated a trend of many smaller club shows. Although there were bodies in the room, serious customers purchasing any numismatic coins of consequence were absent. Dealers with raw coins, modern coins and bullion reported activity, albeit at mostly lower price-points. One dealer who we talked to said that he had […]


There always is a little bit of uncertainty when coming into a major coin show off of a long hiatus. This holds especially true when the market has been rather tentative. The annual Florida United Numismatists Show (FUN) proved that the coin market was more starved for material than it was concerned about past performance. […]

Happy New Year from The Reeded Edge!

It’s that time of year again when we reflect back on the previous year and all that went with it. In retrospect, this has been a challenging year, as the coin market at times, struggled to maintain its footing. There were some areas, such as silver dollars, that were largely stable throughout the year. Other […]

The Coin Market Starts to Show Signs of Holiday Activity

Through all of the uncertainty of the recent coin market, one constant seems to hold true. Holiday activity will jump start an unpredictable market and give it some sense of stability, albeit temporary. So far, this season seems to be following that pattern. Granted, we are only out of the starting blocks, but Black Friday […]

Happy Thanksgiving – The Reeded Edge Reflects on the 2017 Coin Market

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. The weather is beginning to give us a hint, as are the occasional  decorations that have been popping up around town and the store meat coolers stuffed full with turkeys. Although it has been a rather strange, and at times unpredictable year, it also […]

What Exactly is a Fresh Coin?

November 15, 2017 – You hear us throw around the adjective fresh when describing a coin.  So often, in this trade we use terminology that only other dealers understand. It has dawned on us that many of you may not know exactly what we mean by fresh, so elaboration is probably in order. Fresh, when referring […]

Baltimore Turns Out to be a Resounding Success!

November 14, 2017- Whitman and Baltimore, once again, delivered. This wasn’t as robust a coin show as some of the Baltimore’s of years-past, but it was still an active and profitable venue. In the present market environment, that’s all that we can ask for. Dealers seemed to be a bit more optimistic that perhaps the […]

Our Thoughts on Reselling Auction Coins

April 13, 2017 – We wanted to take a moment to discuss a very important part of our business plan. In the coin business, we are judged by our peers in a number of different areas including the diversity and scope of our inventory, our expertise in the field of numismatics, and perhaps most importantly our […]
