I will be in attendance. It's a great fair.
I haven't been to London since I moved away in 2004.
That city is my favorite place on earth. I spent many a Saturday exploring the British museum. I wish I had been seriously into collecting coins at the time.
It's not actually Coinex - that was in September and I managed to go.
The London Coin Fair is 4 times a year - 1st Saturday of February, June, September & November. I've gone a few times but 6th Nov. not looking good as quite busy.

This coin did have some stiff competition from one other but it was always the front runner. I am going to have it shipped so that it will arrive after I am back in Canada
There is a weekly gathering of dealers at Charing Cross, on Saturday. I think it is still being held. Do you plan to attend?
I was there in 2017, in an area that is part of a garage, as far as I can tell. It was a small gathering of dealers selling coins and currencies and other collectables. It was lot fun attending, though the lighting was kind of dim, but I did pick up a couple of coins there.
I would love to go there with another collector and have lunch and a pint somewhere nearby afterwards - maybe in the next life....

I have one. TC gave me one at the last NYINC. I also saw the Harry Potter play.
I only went to one major show, on the US west coast a couple of decades ago, which was big enough to have really major dealers. Now I can't begin to remember who the one, most memorable, obviously major British dealer was. They had stuff which, at the time, was frightfully expensive, relative to my effectively nonexistent budget. ...Cf. the phrase, 'wish I knew then what I know now.' Except, you could replace the 'knowledge' part with, um, Funds.
Holy smokes that's a gorgeous sestertius!
@Only a Poor Old Man showed me some nice Byzantine Ae's. However this was the first show and the first real vacay since January 2020. If anyone is interested in doing this show I would say that is is very good and worth attending.
