Baltimore Show Report

June 27, 2018 @ 2:30 PM

Summer Baltimore is in the books and was a bit disappointing for us..... while we did manage to sell some rather cool coins (about 35 pcs) left our inventory we just had very little luck locating anything that for us has the "wow" factor that really cool....  well maybe we did score one thing of interest.... that is this neat little bottle cap coin from 2018 Isle of Fuji with Coca Cola painted over silver coin.  We will have these up on our website shortly... they are certified NGC in First Strike label and everyone who saw them at our table thought they were indeed nifty....  Next up on the show trail will be Orlando Summer Fun in a few weeks... enjoy 4th of July and hope to see you soon.

Greysheet - Don't expect to buy the most PQ examples at that price.

February 5, 2018 @ 9:18 AM

While we certainly wont hold it against you for trying to get the best price. 

We wanted to take a moment and explain that our retail coins offered at shows are the cream of the crop...

We pay more for them, and most have already been CAC approved. 

What this means to you is our promise that we will post our best price right on each coin sticker located at the back of the slab. 

Our motto of the coin is remembered long after the price is forgotten rings true...

and if you are still looking for a bargain we also offer at shows a wholesale "blow out" box of coins that we will not sell retail as they dont meet our standards, have been in inventory too long, not something we normally handle, or perhaps a customers ...

FUN show was F U N T A S T I C

January 8, 2018 @ 2:36 PM

The 2018 FUN show is in our books and will go down as one of the best FUN shows since we started doing them 30+ years ago... almost the perfect storm of both dealers and collectors ready to buy and sell and believe me it feels good to see a strong showing after the past year.

What sold well?  Almost any coin that was top graded, cac stickered, unusual and/or just cool  for us this included several early gold pieces from the 1800's, a fresh 1795 half disme, so called dollars, hobo nickels (OHNS meets during this show), silver bullion and of course many great three cent silvers including some really rare dates... 1863, 1864, 1865, and 1869  but after all that is what we do best!

The first day saw more sales in one day ...

BitCoin has it Bit the Big One?

December 23, 2017 @ 10:36 PM

Nothing has been more talked about with more passion the past month than BitCoin... Up / Down all around...if Bitcoin the next big scam or is it here to stay.  All we can say is that the motor that drives the engine...or in this case blockchain technology will be a huge benefit in the future to many industries however in our eyes speculation in Bitcoin with the idea of quick profits is never a good thing...so if you want to play be prepared for ups and downs and take it easy...ie dont bet the farm... Now we are off to FUN in Florida... Tampa and look forward to seeing all our friends as we start the new year... for now...wishing all a Happy Holiday season!

Our Visit To The New Hampshire Coin Show

November 6, 2017 @ 10:08 AM

This past weekend was a double header for Scarsdale Coin as we attended both the New Hampshire Coin Show in Manchester, NH on Thur/Fri/Sat and the Parsippany Coin Show in Parsippany NJ on Sun.

We always enjoy the NH show as it is geared to collectors who crowd the show looking for trash and treasures from the dealers...about 100 dealers set up and the facility of the show is located next to the hotel venue.  Restaurants are awesome and if you have attended these 2x a year show we would strongly urge you to make a trip.

Our NJ appearance was a bit of a disappointment...perhaps the weather or the NY Marathon kept a lot of folks away and while we managed to sell a few coins the overall buzz at this show was off.  This is a monthly ...

Why is attendance down at Coin Shows?

June 28, 2017 @ 1:47 PM

Recently we attended about a dozen shows in the past 2-3 months either set up at a booth or just walking the floor buying... One thing we noticed is that collectors tend to not be attending shows as frequently as in the past.

Our observation is that the web has made the need for the public to attend a lot less and that shows are not the events that they once were.

If you have a comment or suggestion for various show owners please feel free to post below...
