The economy and your collection

This post was added by "mistercoinman"   You can use the comment feature at the close of the paragraph to respond if you wish.

I was just wondering how many capped bust collectors are affected by the so called economic down turn in the coin market. Do you see this time as a chance to build on your collection, or to cut back?  For me, I have started a collection of raw capped bust dimes, instead of buying the more pricey third-party-graded coins. Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.

Bay State Show, Boston, MA 20-22 November 2009

I am headed to the Bay State Show in Boston (Radisson Hotel at 200 Stuart Street) on Saturday, 21 November.  If any other JRCS people will be there, I'd be happy to meet and say hello.  If not, I will do my best to post a "show report" from the perspective of a half dime collector.
