GSNA Convention May 15-17

10 posts in this topic

I will be sharing a table with Bob Beels at the upcoming GSNA convention, May 15-17, 2003. The bourse hours are May 15 1pm-7pm, May 16 10am-7pm and May 17 10am-4pm. I always have a good time at this show and look forward to meeting any board members who would like to stop by and chat. If you come by with coins as "show-and-tell" that is also cool! The meeting facility is clean and secure and the parking is free and convenient. The web site for the GSNA is www.gsna.org for anyone who would like to learn more. Included in the site are directions to the convention and details on the ANA course given immediately before the convention. Thanks!

I'll be there on Saturday.


I've gone the past three years and have enjoyed it immensely!


I particularly recommend the exonumia dealers, who always have a lot of neat stuff - railroad memorabilia, casino chips, tokens, etc.


This year should be the best yet, as several new dealers should be there.


I highly recommend this show.


If you've been to Parsippany, you'll find the GSNA show to be a touch higher end and a touch broader in scope.

I'll be there on the 15th (at least I'll try) I happen to be on a project a couple of miles from there (I work of I-287, exit 7) laugh.gif

It sounds like I, Airplanenut, Fatman and Jaredc from across the street will be there on Saturday.


Also, njcoincrank will have a table at the show.


Perhaps we can gather at TomB's table and practice being annoying customers.

My impression is that the show was fairly quiet today.


(Although, from what I recall of the last couple of shows, floor traffic isn't usually that busy, but compared to a Parsippany show from a couple of months ago it was rather quiet. Although, the last Parsippany show was pretty quiet too. I hope this isn't some kind of trend.)


First of all, New World Rarities wasn't there. There was a post across the street that metioned that a bunch of telemarketers had been "busted" and apparently New World got caught up in it. I don't know any details, but one poster across the street thought that they'd be back in business by Monday.


I think that most of us managed to say hi to (or impose on) TomB. Tom had a lot of nice toned moderns, as usual, but just to torment me he pulled out an 1805 (or 6, I can't quite remember) PCGS VF-20 quarter that was a really nice mate for his 1796 quarter. It was a very pretty medium gray. I also talked to FatMan and Airplanenut at Tom's table.


As usual, most of the dealers were the usual folks who do Parsippany regularly, although Gus Tiso was there, as was Mary Sauvain (representing MGS &NSI). Both were new to the show.


I saw a bunch of slabbed Seated Dollars, mostly common dates, but I'm not used to seeing slabbed Seated Dollars at all. I saw more interesting gold than usual, as I saw three or more post-Civil War S-mint quarter eagles. I also saw four or five slabbed D and C mint (mostly D-mint) half eagles, all AU-50 to AU-58. The only O-mint gold I saw (with two exceptions) were post-Civil War eagles. (Don Hosier said he can't keep O-mint or CC-mint gold in stock more than a day or two.)


For me, it was a fairly slow show. I managed to pick up a nice 1787 George III shilling, but that was it today.
