Club marks 50th year of hosting coin shows

 

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.
