Despite heavy rains, the Santa Clara Coin, Stamp & Collectibles Expo had strong attendance.
Held March 30 to April 1, at the Santa Clara, Calif., Convention Center, the show?s educational seminars and rarity displays brought out hobbyists and dealers alike.
?We had more than 3,800 collectors and dealers despite thunderstorms during the entire second day of the show. Many people braved the nasty weather to attend the eBay buying and selling seminars conducted by Troy Thoreson and to see a display of the finest known set of 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition commemorative coins,? said Ronald J. Gillio, expo general chairman.
Bringing in $2.4 million in winning bids, Superior Galleries of Beverly Hills, Calif., conducted the official auction during the show.
The fall Santa Clara Expo is scheduled for Nov. 16-19.
Gillio announced that dates for next year?s spring show have been changed to April 19-22, 2007.
