June 2018 Whitman Coin Show Report
Author: Coin Dealers - Sunday June 24, 2018
Joe Palmieri Baltimore was very slow. I was told by a dealer it's the slowest in 20 years
Andrew Kimmel The public forgot to attend Baltimore. Wholesale was okay.
Ed Hammond Baltimore was very slow slowest summer show I've ever had in 14 years there and next summer they've booked show memorial day weekend
Richard Weaver Baltimore preshow was active, show was slow paced nothing exciting. As mentioned next years Memorial Day weekend show will be interesting
Chris Berinato It will be ghost town
Barry Ciociola Next to worse Baltimore Show I ever had.
Derek Sawchenko At Baltimore. Found 2 nice coins 1882CC $5 gold lib PCGS AU58 and a 1933D oregon half raw but looks to be 66 possibly 67. Just walked through and didnt look crazy busy but was a worthwhile trip for me.
Jack Dempsey Solid wholesale Baltimore. Definitely off but came light in stuff and staff. Public was a no-show.
Brian Raines My worst baltimore show ever. Pathetic. I couldn't stick around til sunday to see if they if they were gonna let thr public in.
J.R. Vaganis Baltimore was ok. I had lots of fresh coins to sell. Still tough to sell and lots of coins let go for 5% less then I really wanted. Moved some good coins. Levels continue to drift slowly lower. Summer show is always quiet. Can’t believe they would have on memorial weekend. I’m not going just on principal.
David Kahn Baltimore was as expected or a little better, but the whole show had an odd feel to it. We did plenty of buying and selling, but there was nobody there! Aisles were nearly empty from noon Friday on, public was almost non-existent, but those that did come, bought. From us at least. Baltimore is our "home show", and we haven't missed one in many years, but next Memorial weekend may test that.
