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

hilton-st-louis-airportIt’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 St. Louis Airport. Convenience is the key to this coin show. The proximity to the airport makes it a no-brainer for dealers out of the area. The middle America location is alluring to dealers from all areas of the country. The small show feel creates intimacy. The large adjacent parking lot at The Hilton makes parking convenient and safe for the locals. Quite often, not all of these variables are considered when choosing a site for a coin show. Kudos to Mike Orlando for not only considering each of these important aspects, but packaging it all to create one of the most consistently viable shows on the circuit. Ordinarily, a show of this size would hardly be considered a national show. However, due largely to the make-up of the dealer roster, The Greater American Coin Fair is just that-perhaps the best little national show in the country. We should also mention that this show has been sold out for decades, which is why we always attend and never let our table lapse. Our understanding is that the wait list to get a table could be a decade or more. As usual, The Reeded Edge will be located in the center aisle of the main room on the left side. Both Rob and Robbie will be on-hand, although display area and mobility in the room are limited. That will not deter the guys from bringing an extensive certified inventory of U.S. coins, spanning copper to gold. Retail is just to strong to ignore at this venue, despite the logistical challenges. Please note: Our table is listed under Oklahoma Coin Exchange in the show guide, although we will have our Reeded Edge logo table cloth which should be plainly visible once you approach our location. Also, we will be not be set up on Sunday. As usual, buying will be a priority, and The Reeded Edge’s open checkbook policy will be in full effect. Please offer the guys any worthwhile United States material that you have for sale. We are really looking forward to this show, and hope that St. Louis may be in your plans for the upcoming weekend. If so, stop by The Airport Hilton, and say hello.
