I am wondering if anyone else sees the same trend in their respective collection areas?

Also very encouraging to see there are lots of active collectors in the world/ancient coins.
Uhhhh yeah, it has been for 17 years in a row now.
. Much harder to find good deals like I used to find.
But then there are great buys, takes a bit of luck, and a whole lot of researching auctions for hidden gems. You will not find these on CNG Triton Auctions/ where millions of high rollers are in a bidding frenzy. But on obscure sites/ like this "unique" Triens I won for 3K euros Heritage/Europe.
Yes, I did enjoy watching that one.
I'm looking forward to the Stephen Album auction tomorrow, as it has several pieces I'm very interested in.
I only bid on 1 item and got absolutely killed. Same in CNG's Triton sale XXIV although I did bid on more items there.
The NY show took place ?????????????
Not that I know of.
The auctions that were supposed to be attached to NYINC were rescheduled to be online-only. I'm pretty sure the Stephen Album auction this weekend, which I mentioned, was supposed to be part of the NYINC.
So WHY are world coins so hot the last few years or decades ?
The same factors moving foreign coins should also apply to U.S. coins......UNLESS.....there are lots of world coins that cost < $50 and it's easier for these to double or triple or quadruple than similarly priced American coins or equivalent rarities that cost hundreds of dollars in the U.S.
You wouldn't expect 2 major markets -- U.S. coins and World coins -- to diverge for so long a time.
