NGC - Feeling troubled by the cancellation of coin shows? Internet sales and third-party grading to the rescue!

Well, summer is finally here and although the "official" holiday season is about five months away, I couldn't help but think that my fellow coindexters' big holiday was effectively taken away with the ANA's announcement that it had officially pulled the plug on the World's Fair of Money. Yes, I couldn't help but think of my numismatic brethren this week, missing the annual rites and the August trip to Pittsburgh, the Steel City.

Upon hearing this news, in a flash, my thoughts raced back to my youth to the scene in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer when Santa, faced with the massive blizzard on Christmas Eve, utters, "I've got some bad news, folks. Christmas is going to be cancelled." Of course, we all know that Rudolph and his non-conforming bright beak saved the day that time!

I recently attended a small local show in Ohio. Attendance was at about 50% of normal levels for vendors and probably about 60% for customers. Everyone was wearing masks and trying to maintain a bit more distance then usual as the building is usually fairly crammed. I was there from opening for about an hour and some of the vendors were starting to pack up and a few stated that they not selling, just buying and doing dealer to dealer trades. The show promoter wore a face shield and from what I could see everything appeared to be going well. Some of the dealers were talking about their experiences catching COVID-19.

Thank you for the report, Joe.

I am not looking forward to maybe missing the show this fall. Hopefully procedures and precautions will be well tested by then.
