Went to the Denver Coin Expo Friday (May 14th, 2010).  Several obersations:

Dealers were pushing coins in front of me to look at.  In other words, I would be looking at a case and they had no problem opening it up and handing me a bunch of coins with out asking.
At one table a person came up and asked if they had Pres Dollars.  The dealer kind of chuckeled and said, "no, we don't sell that stuff"  Shocked
seemed busy
Of course, there were a few dealers reading the paper who never looked up to acknowledge customers  Huh

But overall, dealers seems more customer friendly and chatty than in the past

For you Walker folks, one dealer had a 3 ring binder of 2x2's of UNC walkers (40's) that was a delight to look at  About 100 BU blazers, and priced as such

Wanted to stay much longer but got a call from my boss and had to go back to work  Angry

Anyway, I bought a blue book and a couple hundred misc Indian Cents as the price was ok, and they were all in decent shape (no dented, corroded, etc coins)

Ya I've never been to a coin show. I been around flea markets that had coins and a few pawn shops but Don't really care much for any of these.

having never had a real good idea of where you live, I did a mapquest.  I swear, it was like reading all the names of the small towns from my favorite shows from the 1960's.  Bugtussel, Hooterville,  Pixley, Crabwell Corners, etc

Anywaym how far is Indianapolis, or Cincinatti?

Cincinnati is just up the road about 250 miles and Indianapolis is up about 350 miles but you got to bear left at Lexington.  Grin There is no Hooterville any more since John Hooter moved up north and took the Hooter twines with him.  Grin

I'm waiting for a show in late July in St. Louis. They're always a ton of fun.
