Long Beach Show June 6-8 - Meet, Greet and Trade
« on: April 30, 2013, 04:36:10 PM »
It has been few years since some of us got to meet each other on this side of the coast. Since then the long beach show has grown in importance and attendance for Chinese coins. I propose a meet and greet either on Friday evening over drinks, or Saturday morning over breakfast. Trades are bonus.

Most of the time I can be found at the World Treasures table. At most shows that is directly behind the PandaAmerica area.

Please describe your want list in more detail.  Although I am a collector, I do not understand what it is you want.  I do have items in my collection which I will be pleased to sell.

At Islands, the table is in the name of China Coins. See you there.

Hey!  Thanks to Pandora for arranging this!
It was great to meet and re-meet you all!

Sorry I didn't make it back for breakfast.
I'm not alone.  Apparently, only the true "die-hards"
showed.  Ha!

Sorry.  I do not recall anyone taking pictures.

We were too busy goofing around.

The resident Press photographer was otherwise
engaged.

Next time, promise.

But to echo Mirkkanen, it was a joy.

Was there a large supply of Chinese coins at the Long Beach coin show?  How were prices?......

I'm sorry too. No pictures but I also had a great time putting faces to forum names at the Friday night dinner. I am not a great judge of coin shows but it seemed to me that Chinese coins were well represented. I didn't find anything I needed so I didn't get down to doing any price negotiating.

I am very sorry to have missed the dinner at Islands. Panda Halves and I had a good conversation at breakfast. I was also very happy to see Obsidian and Mirkkanen and other familiar collectors at the show.

Was there a large supply of modern Chinese material at Long Beach? Yes, there was but not a vast amount, and no one was giving it away. I will write my usual report for Pricepedia but one thing I noticed is that the general spread of knowledge of prices has made it increasingly difficult for buyers to pick off major bargains from dealers.

Best wishes,

P.S. Breakfast attendees gained early entrance to the show.
