    OK, figured 1 thread where folks could update the happenings of local (monthly, quarterly, whatever) smaller shows aside from The Biggies. Not sure they all deserve their own thread, but if someone wants to go that way (like I and others did with the Westchester Quarterly Show) feel free to do so.

    I'll start this one off with.......

    Mt. Kisco Coin Show: I went to this show today and I was pleasantly surprised. Even though it was only about 15 minutes away from where the Westchester Coin Show (WCS) appears (which was also only 2 weeks ago) was slightly bigger, had more dealers, and a better variety (IMO) of stuff than at Westchester.

    Saw lots of the same folks, but plenty of new ones, too. Some people who came from MA and CT don't go to the other show (or not all that often).

    Anyway, it was held at the Mt. Kisco Holiday took up 2 of those conference rooms whereas WCS only takes up 1 room....I'd say about 30-35 dealers and maybe 100 tables.

    Saw some interesting NGC-slabbed ancient coins from a guy on Long Island, very impressive. Ran the gamut from $1,800 to $18,000.

    I liked one guys case because all the CAC TPG slabs were in foam compartments and it looked very organized and impressive. To a newbie, I think it was enticing and a good sales catch creator. I personlly think unless you are a veteran that seeing DOZENS or HUNDREDS of coins -- particularly in those 2" white squares in 1 or 2 or 3 glass cases -- makes it tough to find something. But I guess to each his own, huh ?

    Bought only a 2016 PF69 Saint-Gaudens Silver Commemorative, saving up the Big $$$ (I hope) for FUN. Can test out this thickly-slabbed coin on my new 2.68" plastic easel holders that arrived this weekend. :D

    There was an interesting Barber Coin setup with some guys who belong to a national Barber Coin group. They had some interesting specimens and some interesting information on Barber and Morgan. I thought that was a nice touch. I believe they gave a talk sometime today, but not when I was there (about 1:30 PM).

    I stayed for about an hour and then went home to catch the 2nd half of the Giants-Dolphins game (don't laugh :D). I'm not sure when the next Mt. Kisco show is, but I'll try and attend and also compare it to the next WCS.

    I'll try and update the NYC-area shows.

    Parsippany, NJ is the 1st Sunday of every month. Next one is January 5th. I'll PROBABLY go that month even though I am going to FUN a few days later. But it's a pretty good show.

    Local annual coin club(Shelby County Coin Club) coin show in May. Located in Sidney, Ohio, (Home of Coin World) at the American Legion. Usually around 20 dealers. Always the Saturday following Mother's Day. Nice small show for rural West central, Ohio.
