More than 60 PNG member-dealers will have booths, prominently designated with PNG banners, for buying and selling numismatic merchandise at the Baltimore PNG Day show.
"To showcase our membership to the collecting pubic, PNG has made arrangements with the ANA and the Central States Numismatic Society to hold two PNG Days each year in conjunction with those organizations’ annual conventions.
This gives collectors an opportunity to meet many of the experienced, trustworthy PNG dealers at a less frantic pace than often found during large shows," explained PNG President Gary Adkins.
