It is time for the Low Country Coin Club’s Summer 2013 Coin Show at the Exchange Park Fairgrounds in Ladson. The much awaited show and sale is August 2-4, 2013, that’s three entire days to see all the exhibits. And, it is absolutely free, including the parking that is very close by.
This is a great opportunity to find out what your old coin collection is worth, or to sell a few old coins and buy that antique you just have to have. Most of the dealers are very friendly and you can learn a lot. It is always a good idea to keep up with buyers and what they collect just in case you have something they might like.
S & S Sourcing, that is Sandi Morgan and Stewart Weisner, of Alpharetta, GA, have some of the very best antique paper money printed in South Carolina, and one of the very best selections. If they are there, be sure to see what they have. They always have the best exhibit in the show.
There are other antique things in the show as well, like maps, prints, documents, guns, ancient things including ancient coins. Some dealers specialize in local antiques and documents and rarely exhibit anywhere. At any rate, the show is full of things that cannot be found in the local antique shops. Antique shoppers never know what they might find. It is both entertaining and educational.
Books on antique coins and coin collecting are sold there as well as coin collecting related items. Paper money is a huge part of the show. Some of the paper money was printed in South Carolina. They have special exhibits for children, which they encourage to attend.
The exact address is 9850 Hwy 78, Ladson, SC 29456, not far from I-26. The website of the Low Country Coin Club is www.lowcountrycoinclub.com. It is just past the Flea Market at the main entrance. The club has regular meetings that are open to the public, just go to their website to find out more.
