I've been doing this so long that it's hard to pile on the superlatives, but here we are in 2019 and another Long Beach Show will shortly go into the books. We are in the midst of a mini-bull-run in the metals and I predict this will be the beginning of one of the last upturns in the rare coin market. After several years of a basic side-ways market, we will now see an upturn that many will look back on as a bargain period that should have been obvious to all who witnessed it.
If you have the nerve and the capital, now is a great time to take a chance. I cannot guarantee anything; I can only give you my opinion and that is that this could be one of the last great bull-market beginnings for those who are willing to step out and take some risk.
Beyond that, this could be one the rare Long Beach weeks wherein the bullion market shows a positive gain. At any rate, if you're in town be sure to stop by and say hello at TABLE 934. Best wishes in all your endeavors!
It's hard to believe, but it's 2019, a date which somehow seems futuristic to me!! This week will mark the first (and some say, "The Best") show of the year. Florida United Numismatists (FUN) will be putting yet another world-class coin convention in Orlando, Florida. It will be held in the convention center on International Drive in halls WA1 & WA2 which is across from the old Peabody (now Hyatt Regency Hotel).
My table is virtually in the center of the floor at #628, so if you're attending, please stop by. This promises to be a busy and active show which will kick off the New Year and I hope to see you there!
