The 2017 Florida United Numismatists Show or FUN show,as we affectionately call it, flew by rather quickly. There always seems to be a good turn out as collectors and dealers from around world, travel to a pleasant Florida location. This year, the FUN Show was in Fort Lauderdale, FL a vacation mecca for many with long stretches of sandy beaches, lots of fishing boats, yachts and cruise liners, gliding through the intracoastal waterways. The turn out was descent and the show was solid for us. We enjoyed the sea food and vacation-like atmosphere. The surrounding areas had many places to hang out and relax a bit after those long days on the bourse floor.
Dealers seemed to be fairly aggressive early, hoping to find coins for customers and freshen up their inventories to kick off the New Year. We had many collectors stop by the table with want lists in hand, searching coins to add to their Morgan and Peace dollar sets. We bought and sold a good number of better date Morgan and Peace dollars from $500 to $50,000 dollars. We also helped a number of collectors add Lincoln cents, Mercury dimes, Washington quarters and silver Commemorative halves to their collections. It wasn't our best FUN show, but we met and did business with a number of new dealers and collectors. As always, we enjoyed visiting with regular dealer and collector friends. If I had to put a grade on the show, I would give it a solid B.
