An attendance record was set at Waukesha Coin Club’s annual show held. March 13 at the Waukesha American Legion Hall. The club reported that nearly 600 people came out for the event.
“It was a zoo!” exclaimed Tom Snyder, bourse director and chairman.
Cents were not hot-ticket items.
“One dealer had a case of Lincoln and Indian Head cents that he said he didn’t even need to bring along as there was zero interest in them,” said Snyder.
Club members were particularly delighted by the appearance of Harold Koeffler, fellow member and retired Mukwonago, Wis., auto dealer, who will turn 100 on Nov. 5.
