2015 FUN SHOW – Orlando Florida:
The Florida United Numismatists is host of the nation’s largest coin show, held annually at the beginning of January. Over 15,000 collectors and dealers from around the U.S. and the world converge in the sunny climate for the first bellwether gathering of the year.
The Summer FUN coin convention is smaller that the winter show, but still remains a priority venue for the major dealers and local collectors. It also includes the Summer FUN Heritage Signature coin auction which is an important sale of rare US coins.

I found a 1935 mercury dime with well defined bands and all 3 bands look pretty sharp. Any value besides the red book?
There is a market for high grade uncirculated Mercury dimes with full bands. My advice is have the coin graded by PCGS or NGC and get a professional opinion on the coin’s condition.
