THE HOUSTON MONEY SHOW
We really like the show. Its a small show that you can tell is run by a very devoted club. They try really hard and do get a good small crowd. It has been announced the show is moving away from the convention center downtown to a place that is no so easy for us out of town dealers to get too. We wish them the best of luck.
The Hilton where we always stay is actually one of our favorite hotels anywhere we travel. We’re right downtown and near all the good eats. Plus, Houston pretty much has hourly flights for us. So we have been popping on down to the show to do wholesale the past 4-5 years. Every year the show has been a great success for us. We’re going to miss it!
This year our show was more marginal. We went strickly to BUY coins. Hard to buy when there is little to no supply. If you want real widgets (late date Pr Franklins, generic Morgans, or just cheap stuff) you could buy all you want. We saw only a 3-4 tables with any decent five figure coins. We did NOT buy a single coin OVER $10,000.00 and we could not buy ANY generic PCGS CAC gold. We made the mistake of showing one NEWP to the dealer behind us-and now its not a NEWP-he bought it! Obviously we did not do that again.
Activity dealer to dealer overall seem okay. We were privy to a few five figure coins quietly selling. Again, its a smaller show with mostly smaller dealers setting up (so our information is limited) so more expensive coins were not he norm.
We do expect more activity from the bigger players at the PCGS Invitational in less then 2 weeks (another MUST attend show).
Overall, activity was good in November for pretty much everyone. It wasn’t heavy, just good (which everyone who we spoke to seem happy about).
LEGEND IS BUYING
We are going to keep telling you this until we can satisfy demand and fill some Want Lists. We’ve raised our bids on PCGS CAC generic gold, we’re telling you we will buy big deals just to get the few coins we need. And NO ONE will pay more then us for coins we need!
Right now we especially need ALL PCGS MS67 CAC Saints, and all PCGS CAC MS65 and higher DMPLS! We also can use PR 67 Barber Dimes, ANY Proof Type 66 and above with killer colors, and of course Bust gold. We really have $20 million in Want Lists. And yes, we WOULD buy another $20 1927S PCGS MS65 CAC!
Contact: George Huang: firstname.lastname@example.org wth what you have!
Take it as a very healthy sign we are buyers, not NET sellers!
A WORD ABOUT WANT LISTS
Want Lists can cause a collector more harm then good. We highly recommend you do NOT share any Want List with more then 1 dealer who you can trust. We have seen many instances where bigger players gave their Want Lists to 2-3 dealers. Next thing you know, about a dozen dealers were looking for those coins-which only costs the collectors MUCH more! It is NOT a positive to have your business all over the bourse floor.
Also, CLOSE YOUR REGISTRY until you are done. While some can argue it helps get them coins, others will tell you stories how dealers held them hostage on coins they needed.
With Want Lists be patient! Your coins will appear over time.
Until we can buy more, our NEWPS offerings will be small. Of course the quality of EVERY coin we post WILL be exceptional!
The only highlight coin we have this week (even though all our listings are highlights: 3CS 1857 PCGS MS67CAC. It is tied for being the finest. This coin is more then worthy of its designation!
ALL NEWPS ARE NOW POSTED!
