Low Country Coin Club of North Charleston/Charleston, S.C., wrapped up its 50th year of coin shows Feb. 3.
This year’s three-day show at the Ladson, S.C. (near Charleston) Fair Grounds Exhibit building was not the largest show the club has held, but most of the dealers attending felt it was a successful show and worth their trip to the Charleston area.
Attendance at the show was strong and steady throughout the weekend, beginning Friday afternoon. It isn’t known if an overall attendance record was set, but the Young Numismatics exhibit area had 73 young people visit, which was a record.
A drawing was held Sunday afternoon and Lupe Alviar won the $5 gold coin, which was first prize. William Totten won the silver $3 silver as second prize and Robert Stancik won third, a silver proof set. Cole Sharon won the YN door prize.
Club officers and members were pleased with the results of the show. The Low Country Summer Coin Show will be held the first weekend of August.
