Can you think of any other reason to drive there...then go to the show while you're there? For instance, do you need a new vehicle and can get your best deal near where the coin show is? ...or is there a State Fair going on around the same time? That's how I do it.
State Fair in Des Moines. I know since it is on the farm of my ancestor, my mother's great uncle. You can still visit their house on property, the Thornton house. I grew up 7 blocks from there.
The DM coin club always has an annual show which would be worth going to. Unfortunately, there is never such a show in mid August when the state fair is on.
I know its more of a drive, but Chicago ANA in Aug would be probably the largest coin show you could ever attend.
Nice to have relatives memorialized in State Parks and other venues. My mother comes down through the very early McMillan's in Iowa. McMillan Park in Mt. Pleasant is where the Old Thrashers Reunion is held annually.
He was a fine fellow all dressed up in that Arrow Shirt. Remember Arrow Shirts…….?
I like this but haven't figured out why yet.
There's one in New Hampshire next Friday Saturday. NH coin and currency expo at the doubletree Manchester NH. If you're into driving a bit.
Have a good time. Let us know if you find anything interesting. I quit going to shows because they were too much of a clique gathering.
Fair enough, and its a nice but warm day for a drive. It is nice to go in person somewhere and talk to others about coins.
In the spring and fall there is a large show in Minneapolis each year at the Earl Brown center. Let me know if you will attend and we can meet up.
The big news is that dealer inventory is down and prices are general,y in the upswing
Where did yo drive from? I am in Texas but originally from Burlington.
