Truth.

I do not think we would have been able to cope as well if this were 1980.

Personally I really think more time should be given before coins shows start up

It's not worth the risk to yourself or to others to attend a coin show. There's so many great alternatives online, like the CCF, the ANA eLearning Academy, and the Newman Numismatic Portal. And some good old fashioned time spent enjoying our collections.

Ebay. Do not underestimate it, even if you are just window shopping.

Unfortunately I underestimated my ability to only window shop, and ended up with a mailbox full of coins.

@Numis, it is good to hear the observations of a member of a younger generation on the current state of affairs.

As a member of the nearly-on-medicare generation, we are being pretty cautious, especially as we are in a warm to hot zone. So no coin shows, no discretionary shopping/entertainment of any kind that will expose us to crowds.

ANd yes, thankfully, there are lots of "contactless" venues for our hobby.

Show floor was larger than normal, tables were well spaced out and attendance was light. I doubt there were 50 dealers there. Everyone was required to wear masks and they had several hand sanitizer stations around the floor.

I got there about 10:30 started wandering the floor visiting with several of the dealers I have known for some time. Stopped by Steve Ellsworth's table, paid him $2k on my account. Meanwhile my father purchased a half dozen Chinese cash (he collects those all the way back, by Hartell numbers), and scoured the floor looking for foreign currency. No one had any so by 12:30 he was done and ready to go. I'd covered about half the floor by then and rather than make him wait around while I finished we went ahead and left. Probably a good thing because if I had stayed around I probably would have gone further into debt with Steve. He had a beautiful MS-63 1817 N-14 large cent, and an AU-55 1846 cent with the perfect surfaces and color that I like. If I had stayed around I'm sure eventually I would have broken down and bought them. I almost never never find anything at shows anymore, but if Steve is there I'm in trouble. He had just purchased a major high end late date set with many condition census coins in it. Was quite a sight in his cases.

Id love to go to a show now. I just don't understand why anyone would think it's worth the risk. I also don't understand how I could possibly enjoy being there. I'd be on edge with every contact.

I've had very good experiences on Ebay recently, for now that has to be as good as it gets.

I felt it was a great show and the way it was done was reasonably safe. I bought a lot at mostly 2 dealer's tables. Wearing the mask all day was a bit uncomfortable, though it gave me a new appreciation for those in the service sector.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

I am glad those who attended took the right precautions and had some success.
