The Chicago Internaitonal Coin Fair was busy. I found it to be a nice show, plenty of variety - Ancients thru Modern with world paper money dealers too. Full range of material available - pricy to a dollar box, each area with nice selections.
The Auction saw stong internet bidding and saw stong prices in both ancients and world material, with China expecially strong.
The Bourse floor was larger than in past years, and the attendance was up too, with many participants attending two or more days.
Consider attending the 2012 event, to be held the last weekend of April at the same location - Crown Plaza Hotel, River Road, Rosemont (near O'Hare).
