Welcome to Baltimore!

Welcome to Baltimore!

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

Welcome to our November sale with the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo—a numismatic tradition that dates back into the last century. Three times a year—in March, June, and November—collectors, dealers, and others converge on Baltimore for several days of numismatic immersion and fun. For many years Baltimore has been voted by dealers as America’s favorite coin convention city. This honor is justly deserved. The Baltimore-Washington International Airport is modern and is more hassle-free than most. It is just a half hour ride from downtown, where the Convention Center and Inner Harbor district beckon. Fine hotels (all the leading marques are there) and fine dining also await you.

Thoughts on Rarity, Part III

Thoughts on Rarity, Part III

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

In this article I continue my thoughts on rarity by stating that you cannot make a rarity and trying to create a rarity usually results in failure. Trying to manipulate supply and demand rarely ends well for anyone involved. This is especially true if one attempts to do this as a means to control the market for personal gain and not with the goal of owning and enjoying a coin or other collectible.
