The summer break will soon be over and Richard and I will be standing at all of the remaining Wakefield Coin Fairs. Run by Eddie Smith and held on the last Sunday of each month, these fairs have a good variety of dealers present and usually attract a vibrant bunch of collectors. I usually have a good selection of numismatic books and a few trays of ancient coins.
I now have a good new stock of books, a little depleted by the York Fair, but they do cover a broad range including a copy of Fred Shore's vary scarce and sought after book on Parthian coinage.
The remaining dates for 2009 are:
30th August 2009
27th September 2009
25th October 2009
29th November 2009
There is no fair in December and the 2010 season will kick off with the two day York Fair to be held on the 15th and 18th January. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
