I wish I could go to some coin shows in December but I am going to be too busy at my regular job working 60-hour workdays during most of December.

2019 could bring a significant challenge in terms of my business. Starting January 1, 2019, ebay will start collecting sales tax on the behalf of a few states. It will be interesting for me to see how big the impact will be for me as an ebay seller in terms of sales since I have customers in those selected states that ebay will collect sales tax on.

For the first time, I was a dealer at a coin show this weekend. This was a big experiment for me. I've still got today to go, but so far it's been interesting. Very few people have even looked at my case full of numi's, ducatons, talers, and other foreign silver crown-sized coins, and more modern gold numi's. Most of the action has taken place in my gold bullion case, old gold bullion specifically. And silver bullion, even sold a 100 oz brick. Sales have been higher than what I expected, if I expected anything. But I'm still surprised my hoard of foreign silver crown-sized coins has gone essentially unnoticed. Some of the coolest coins in the room, and no one cares. There is one dealer who has some nice middle aged hammered gold, high grade, so I can't say I've got the coolest. I guess I'm the only one who had a large selection of old gold bullion, and it's been a hot item, much more so than silver bullion.

What is moving bemac are your items that take little or no brain power to acknowledge. All the other pieces may as well be in a museum as people have no idea what they are looking at.
BULLION for SALE = little to no thought processing. The customer either wants it or not.
Best of Luck Today.

Good to hear you are venturing out onto the bourse. I have thought about it but never taken the plunge. Good to know people are interested in bullion. As for your numi, it is a bit more of a specialized niche. My guess is that if you stay in the game you will slowly attract a small clientele of people who appreciate your stuff. Good luck out there.

Just wondering what kind of old gold bullion is hottest? Is it going for well over? Nice to hear from you sounds fun.

Great report Bemac and thanks for sharing !

Thalers & Crowns are slow for me too. The only large silvers that sell are 8-reales if they're cheap enough ($50-$80 range).
Old U.S. gold does well in my area.

Kinda like the gun shows in recent years. People drool over Glocks & mosin nagants & walk by vintage Winchesters, Colts, etc...
I don't know if they don't care or don't know what it/they are.
I grew up with Matt Dillon, Rifleman, Paladin, etc, those younger grew up with AR 15's & gangsters shooting glocks sideways.
That's what they know.

I agree 100%. Funny thing is that the gold silver marketplace is opposite to human logical thinking. Most dear folks think a
DEAL on gold numi like coins is not a good buy. They prefer to chase the marketplace like in stocks to be sure they are on the right side of the
boat so-to-say. Frankly the contrary buyers of a market hated usually do a lot better because by the time the heard gets wind (foul wind at that)
of a huge market rise it's almost ready to dive...

That's right, Winchesters & Colts used to be as good as gold and easy to sell. Now they're sluggish.

I've been picking up well cared for pristine pieces when they pop up like a .357 Ruger Security 6 with stag grips that I snagged for $500.
Also picked up a Ruger .357 GP-100 new in the box never fired with a 6" barrel for only $450.

Anyhow, -OOPS- this is a coin thread........ but I agree. The youth don't know jack shit about quality.

I also am seeing fewer of the "tag along" dealers set up tables at these show's. Meaning fewer western wear, Military surplus, Boot dealers are showing up and selling. We always called these guys to Flea Market side of a gun show (non-gun/knife) dealers. Our last show had almost none of the Big Ammo dealers that normally show up, Just a couple of small fly by night ammo guys. Oh well, At least I was able to fill my pockets with Morgans for only a dollar over melt!

LCS today had a few deals. Peace dollars for $16.50 each, silver rounds for $17. I bought 17 WL Halves for $6; and a $5 gold piece listed at $339 the dealer had, he threw in for $20 bucks off, so net $319. He had 1/10 oz gold eagles for $10 over spot and 1/4 oz for $15 over spot. I picked up a few barber halves to fill some holes in a folder I've been piecing together with Barbers I've stumbled across for peanuts the past few years--mostly all under $10-$12.

I had to shovel and blow 8 inches of wet snow last night and another 4 inches this morning to get out of the garage; and it was 40-45 miles per hour for the 40-mile trip going, 45-50 coming home, but it's always fun to see what the current market conditions are. Due to the heavy snow, there wasn't many people at the show when I was there, but more will likely be moseying in as the day goes on, as it's bright and sunny this afternoon with melting snows.
