New Hampshire Coin & Currency Expo

Last Friday I went to the New Hampshire Coin & Currency Expo, held at the Doubletree in downtown Manchester.
I had hoped to find some world coins for my Set of Commemorative Coins of Composers, and perhaps buy a $5 National Park Service Gold Commemorative, a 2014 Proof Silver Quarter set, and junk silver.
When I arrived at around 2 PM after an hour drive from work, the show was busy but not crowded. I talked to several dealers, and they said the largest crowds had already come and gone in the morning.
I browsed through the entire hall which was absolutely huge. Much larger than the Baystate Coin Show, but a little bit smaller than the shows in Baltimore and Long Beach.
There were plenty of slabbed classic eagles for sale and lots of Morgan Dollars. There were a handful of world coin dealers who mostly had more expensive pieces for sale ($100+). At the end however, I found a dealer I had done business with in the past who sold me a 20 Schilling Haydn commemorative for $3.
There was only one dealer (out of about a hundred) who sold $5 gold commemoratives, but they did not have the National Park Service coin. Nobody seemed to sell proof silver quarters set. Junk silver typically went for 25x face which I thought was way too high. As a result, I didn't buy any.
All in all, the expo was disappointing to me. I spend two hours driving, spend good money on gas, parking and entrance fees, which in hindsight does not make sense if you only spend $3 on one coin.
I think I will skip this show in the future and only go the Baystate Coin show and larger, more internationally oriented shows like those in Baltimore, Chicago, Long Beach, and New York.
