Default ANA World's Fair of Money 2013 Chicago

Going tomorrow with a buddy of mine who is into numismatics. Mostly along for the ride but I'll probably pick up some gold or silver proofs for the kiddo at the US Mint booth.

World's Fair of Money World's Fair of Money

What can I expect from the rest of the dealers/booths? Anyone else going?

Yeah, saw the US Mint and the Treasury. There was a huge line at the Mint, I think they were exchanging new US Parks uncirculated quarters for peoples' pocket change.

Found some nice UNC Irish pound notes I was looking for and a bit of silver. Got to check out some incredible coins and notes up close and personal, including this amazing piece:


It's a very impressive show, anyone who has even a passing interest in currency should take a look. Admission is $6, $4 if you print the coupon from the website.
