GD here has said that 80% of the business at big shows might be dealer-to-dealer BEFORE the show even begins. That's how lots of dealers get inventory. Questions: If the dealers sell their stuff at full price (retail) to the dealers...who then have to tack on more to make a profit...how is that price competitive with the market price ? And if the dealers give a discount (wholesale pricing) to their dealer friends so the price they sell at is competitive and also lets them make a profit....aren't they leaving money on the table ? I'm confused when I see dealers say they bought dozens of coins from other dealers, sometimes 1 or 2 dealers. Didn't THOSE selling dealers leave alot of money on the table by not selling their stuff to the retail buyers who'd be coming en masse to a show ? I get selling hard-to-sell stuff at a slight discount if you are stuck in a coin shop, especially in the pre-internet days. But why sell wholesale, especially at a coin show, if you have the internet and coin show traffic to see all your stuff and pay full price ?
