Coin Show Tips

Coin Shows | user_55042

Hello everyone, if you are planning on going to a coin show at all in the future, I recommend you read this.Coin shows are very fun to go to and if you are looking to buy anything from numismatics to bullion coin shows have really good deals to buy that stuff. I am going to tell you some coin show tips.The first thing is that when you are looking through a dealers coins, never put your hands by your pockets or bags because they might think you are stealing their stuff. Also don't put your bags on your lap, put them behind or underneath your chair. If you are looking through coins make sure to remember what came from what box and put the ones you don't want in the right place. Another thing to keep away from the table is your books or checklists because people can slip coins into them. When handling coins always handle them like they are yours; carefully and by the edges.Now that you know your coin show etiquette I'm going to teach you some ways to get good coins for good prices. The first thing you need to do before the coin show is study. You need to study as much about numismatics as you can. Know the the price you want to pay for different coins and know the key dates. If you know all of that you will be able to buy good things, and if you want, make money on them. If you see a bin of junk silver, search through it for good coins that are worth the price. Also, ask dealers if they have a "sale" or "bargain" bin (most have them). If they have it, search through it and try to find something that is worth more than what you are going to pay for. Also at coin shows, you can always make the dealers an offer on their things sometimes they will agree or maybe bring the price down to what they want. Next, it's time for what you should bring. This is mainly for big coin shows but bring good walking shoes, you will be walking a lot. Bring lots of cash because if yo don't you will be wishing you did. Also if you have things that you want to buy specifically, make a list and bring it. Something that you will really need, is a magnifying glass/ loup.If you have a coin that yo want to sell or figure out the value of, bring it to a coin show. The people there are really nice and will help value your coin. Some people will even buy the coin (look for tables with "buying" signs.The next time you go to a coin show, remember these tips and have fun.
