Money Show of the Southwest
December 1-3, 2011
The 55th annual Money Show of the Southwest opened Thursday in Houston, Texas, sponsored by the Greater Houston Coin Club. This year’s convention included more than 200 dealers from around the country trading in coins, precious metals, paper money and other collectibles.
It would be nice to publicly name the thief, that way we all will know who to avoid in the future, I attend shows in California, Texas and Colorado regularly.
