Obviously I missed trades/swaps

As for mints, if you are ordering from them online, then they are an online retailer.

When I was first starting off I used ebay a lot, but I've come to find you can't beat the prices you'll find at shops/shows and I hate buying a coin that I can't look at first, pictures never do the same that seeing in person can.

Because shows have been out of the question for a year now, my current mains are my LCSs, but as soon as shows are back on I'll likely be 90% shows and 10% LCS

Before COVID, coin shows were the king for me.

My last coin show was in February 2020 and I bought one coin (a big one though). I have no idea when the next will be.

If this poll were exclusively for 2020, the US Mint (Online Retailers) would barely edge out eBay.

US Mint and local auction houses have been the source of my buys.

Most routine coins come from eBay. Dated stuff from the 1400s comes from MA-Shops.

I've dug thousands of coins one hundred years old or older. I get most of my collection that way.

Pre-covid, I bought the majority of my coins from my LCS. I bought a smaller portion...25% on ebay. A smaller portion came from CRH and Coinstar, etc.
