One fellow even came to steal.
What say you?

Anytime you take more than one item out of a display case at a show (to show customer) the risk of theft or loss (mix up) increases.
Should be possible nowadays to have a camera or phone camera on all your stuff at all times to watch merchandise.
Parsippany Coin Show had a thief and when he came back a 2nd time to steal, they had him under camera and nabbed him.
For people like him, what he steals is secondary to the act of theft. They get off on stealing and getting away with it.
Some people would rather Steal a Dime than Earn a Dollar.
I've actually been more active in currency/bills the last year or so. I tend to swing back-and-forth.
Of course, it's partly a $$$ thing. I tend to go for quality MSDs or Saint-Gaudens so it's easier for me to buy a bill for $50 or $300 rather than shell out $500 for a Morgan or $2,000 or more for a Saint.
I am mentally tabulating how many bill/currency tables there are now at the coin shows I go to. That's why I asked about the % at FUN.
You can't do that if you have a big bunch of "cheaper" bills. Nobody wants to go into a case 15-50 times to give a prospective customer.
But encapsalated bills usually you just give 1 or 2 or 3 so it should be easier to track them and avoid theft.
The balls on some of these thiefs shocks me. And then there's the FUN dealer robberies.
Again...technology is our friend. If you don't have a 2nd set of eyes watching whoever you give coins/bills, you should have a camera (old unused smartphone ?) hidden and taking video of your table. Heck, it can be set-up far away with a zoom on your table.
after they're gone. You can't reasonably check what you've caught on your hidden equipment while you've got customers.
Do both and deter the ones you can and then afterwards check your hidden equipment to see if you've caught images of a super thief, ala The Saint.
This guy's most welcome at my table . . . anywhere, anytime.
You Sir are a bully with balls who is allowed to flaunt the rules at the expense of others. Now have me punted too. Enjoy. I wouldn't join this forum on any level with folks like you here.
Of the case individually then either selling it or putting it back in the case
Its you money and you have to find ways to protect it.
Why are you still allowed here Sir? You violated the rules much more blatantly than the member you bullied right out of here! I guess the rules are only made for certain people huh?
Take care of it...LOL
Your FALSE accusations have been dealt with in another thread.
You are 100% dead-wrong and owe me an apology.
