From Don's Desk

Coin collecting is something that can be done alone but occasionally it’s great fun to share your collecting interests with others. Meeting with fellow collectors is one of the great aspects of coins shows. Visiting with dealers can be equally enjoyable. Often I hear of uncomfortable situations arising between collectors and dealers at shows. This is usually the result of some miscommunication. All that is needed to navigate through any show is common courtesy. If you are uncomfortable with any dealer then simply walk away. Remember there are a lot of coins out there.
