The 10th Annual Wyo-Braska Coin & Stamp Collectors Show took place last Saturday (the 27th) at the Gering Civic Center. The show had the best attendance ever with about 190 people attending. Dealers from four states were busy selling & buying from those attending.
A few dozen under ten years old collectors received small starter packs of stamps & US & Foreign coins to whet their interest in the hobbies and hopefully encourage another generation of collectors.
The main door prize consisting of an Uncirculated 1957 $1 Silver Certificate was won by Don Loos of Gering and the returning attendee door prize of a 1982 United States Proof Set was won by Don Kepler of Scottsbluff.
Plans for next year’s show are already being made with a tentative date of August 27, 2017.
