The 2004 FUN convention in Florida has come and gone. By all reports it was the BEST show in 20 years! We had a superior show with the sale of many many certified error coins, our only problem was buying enough to replace what we sold. FUN has always been the market indicator for Numismatics, this being the case the indicator dial is OFF the charts and due to set many new records this year. The entire show was busy, especially the very first day on Thursday, and the public streamed in trying to scoff up any to be had fresh Numismatic material, simply amazing!
“Hold on to your seats” is all we can state as how we view this year’s Error coin market. We believe prices will continue to explode on all fronts. There’s just too much going for this numismatic area, few if any fresh errors are escaping the Mint, the numismatic market in whole is very active and strong, and everyone is talking about or interested in Errors.
Ebay is active and prices are at extreme highs for better high grade errors. Just blink and your chance has gone to purchase that coin you were thinking about as someone else has come along and purchased it out from underneath you. If you’re sitting on a better collection, sit back and pick a price level you would be comfortable to sell at. Looking to buy? Jump in as this market is still near the bottom.
