The first Professional Numismatists Guild “Dealer’s Deal” show attracted nearly 100 PNG member-dealers and invited guests Dec. 10-11. at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel. Plans now are being considered for expanding the show in 2009.
“This was exactly the kind of small, primarily dealer-to-dealer show we anticipated,” said Robert Brueggeman, PNG executive director. “It gave PNG members an opportunity to casually conduct business with each other, with some invited non-PNG dealers and some members of the public without the frequent distractions of the typical coin show.”
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation provided on-site authentication and grading services.
“I spoke with most of the dealers in attendance, and everyone was very positive about the business they were able to do and they enjoyed the venue,” said Gary Adkins, PNG president.
PNG is looking at possible dates for at least two more PNG Dealer’s Deal shows next year, Adkins said.
“We’ll also be actively encouraging participation by other dealers who have an interest in becoming a PNG member and would like a chance to meet and do business with PNG members,” he said.
