Lakeland, Florida Collectorama Show this weekend

1 post in this topic

The Collectorama Coin and Currency Show will be held at the Lakeland Center,

701 West Lime (just west of downtown), Lakeland, Florida. The show will be

larger than last October by about 10% and with red hot metals markets, and

extremely strong coin and currency markets, the show is expected to be

very strong. The show is open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,

and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring this notice for FREE ADMISSION, and

tell the folks at the parking lot booths you are coming in for Collectorama and

you will get FREE PARKING. Hourly door prizes, and all kids 12 or under

get a daily dip into the Kid's Bucket for a Free Handfull of Money. Dealers

and guests keep the bucket loaded up for the kids (including some gold coins),

with all kinds of numismatic goodies including at least 10 Two Cent and Three

Cent pieces, some seated dimes and quarters, and at least a dozen Columbian

Expo Half Dollars. If you are going to attend bring some stuff along for the kids.


Lakeland is located just about 30 miles or so between Orlando and Tampa.

Take I-4 to Rt. 98 and go south a few miles. Rt. 98 will turn to the left, you

go straight on S. Florida Avenue and when you get to downtown watch for

the Lakeland Center signs. Very easy to find. The show is in the main

Exhibit Hall (Northwest corner). Plenty of parking all around the facility.


As a big plus, Collectorama also has some great Paper Americana, Postcards,

Historical Documents, Autographs, and other Neat Collectibles. The show is

mostly Coins and Currency with dealers available for Precious Metals buys

and sells, as well as a wide range of numismatic items. There will also be

a supply dealer at the show, and the United States Postal Service will be on

hand to handcancel a special Souvenir Card depicting a neat Confederate Note.


Collectorama is a show for the entire family, and attending dealers urge guests

to bring along any type of Numismatic or Neat Collectibles they want to sell.

This is the 44th Semi-Annual Collectorama Show and we hope you will attend.
