Many of you are subscribers to our email list, and received a link to our new catalog entitled "Sullivan Numismatics Error Showcase." This is our first catalog in a long time, years in fact, and we decided to try this so as to showcase some of the more interesting and exciting inventory in our stock. Sometimes coins get a bit lost in the volume of coins in our inventory, and this is our way of bringing those out, and showcasing them to our customers. If you haven't received a copy and would like one, send us an email at:

Also, if you are attending the ANA Worlds Fair of Money next week in Philadelphia, PA, we look forward to seeing you there--our table is #836, "Sullivan Numismatics, Inc." This is one of the best coin shows of the year, with hundreds of tables, and an equal number of dealers, as well as thousands of collectors in attendance. Major auctions will be offering millions of dollars worth of coins, seminars and educational talks are given, and it all combines to be one big numismatic extravaganza! If you've not attended, you should make it part of your schedule since it is a "must attend" event.
