More than 600 people attended the 55th South Dakota Coin and Stamp Association show at Rapid City, S.D., April 22-23. This was the first coin show in western South Dakota since 1982.
Host club was the newly formed Black Hills Coin and Stamp Club. Dealers reported heavy buying.
The board of the SDC&SC met during the show and elected Richard Fritts and Jack Meier, both Rapid City coin dealers, to the board. The board awarded Mobridge the 2007 show. The show will come back to Rapid City in 2008. Krause Publications columnist Alan Herbert was elected to the board in 2005.
