MID JUNE MARKET REPORT

ANOTHER GREAT SALES WEEK

We think we know why we are selling so much-we have had the goods the past 30/60 days. As we mention last week, once we are pretty much sold out, our super hero status will be gone. We’ll be crying as loud as any one. This past week was another record breaking sales week in line with our record breaking first half of the year. We sold well over $500,000.00 direct to collectors...

LONG BEACH SHOW REPORT

HOW TO MAKE A GOOD MARKET LOOK BAD

Have a miserable Long Beach Show and Auction and then repeat and do the same thing in Baltimore in 2 weeks.

Why don’t show promoters get it? Summer shows simply do not work. Even the mighty FUN Summer show struggles.

The Long Beach show was the culmination of everything wrong. First, the majority of East Coast dealers did not attend...

PRE LONG BEACH SHOW REPORT

A TIDAL WAVE HIT US

WOW! Totally unexpected and out of the clear blue sky, between Tuesday afternoon and Thursday evening some way some how we did nearly $1 million dollars in sales! It all happened just that fast. We do consider it a fluke-however MANY fresh (really fresh) coins were involved. However, we do have 40 years of contacts in the business so events like this do very much happen from time to time...

PRE NEW ORLEANS PCGS INVITATIONAL

THE PCGS INVITATIONAL

We fully encourage any one who can to go to any PCGS Invitational. The dealers are in the most intimate setting and room is well decorated and is quite comfortable. PCGS always throws in a good meal. Last year in New Orleans they brought out  delicious baggets (as an afternoon treat). They were as good as you get any where in town! This weeks  show will be a bit different...

CINCO DE MAYO REPORT

THIS PAST WEEKS ACTION

Finally, spring is in the air and so is coin collecting. We are greatly surprised how there only was a small dip in demand around tax time. Seems activity is back to normal. In fact, our sales this week were extremely strong and were just under $1 million dollars-an amount totally UNexpected!

There is little rime or reason as to what is in demand. As a whole-TRUE QUALITY coins are selling for good money (key words: TRUE quality)...

He is currently in Intensive Care Unit in a NJ hospital. George always did everything within his power to stay healthy-this comes as a huge shock to everyone. He is 55 years old...

VISIT LEGEND AND LEGEND AUCTIONS AT OUR TABLE 643 IN BALTIMORE 

NICE WEEK

We did not figure to do much business this past week. Adding it all up-we certainly did do far more then expected. And we had our usual Friday afternoon Sale (the $1 1864 PCGS PR65 CAC). For whatever reason Fridays at 3-4 PM we always seem do a bigger sale of some kind.

Very interesting what sold during the week...
