Big for us here in Northern Flyover Land, that is. 3-dayer ... happens twice a year. Started Friday afternoon. Got there about 11 AM today. Busy place ... saw lots of old farts, like me, heading in when I arrived.
Lots of silver ... 1/2 oz. to 100 oz. Best price on ASEs was $20.50 with typical price $21-22. Canadian wildlife from last couple of years are getting spendy (IMHO). Not a lot of 90% and what there was seemed expensive at about 15X (melt about 12X).
Fair amount of gold, but few "deals". Saw quite a few 1 oz. AGEs at $1300+ ($1340 was the highest I saw). Maybe that's why they were still there. Found a gold Buffalo, still in mint packaging, for $1250. Not a super deal, but I didn't have one yet.
Deal of the day was a from a dealer stuck back in the corner. He was trying to move some stuff to pay for the kitchen remodel he just had done. Wifey said she was very happy with her new kitchen. Got a 20 franc French rooster 1910 in unc condition, a 1984 British 5 pound gold coin (1.17 oz.), and a 1/2 oz. gold proof Britannia, all at 3% over spot. I was happy that his wife was happy.
Heard several dealers in conversations with other dealers say that the place was busy but not a lot of money being spent. Several said they would not be be back on Sunday.
River are open and lakes will probably be ice free in 2 weeks at the latest. I see a canoe trip in my future.
