Something for everyone at the Collectors Show in Carthage

Updated:

Coin collectors warn of scams but if you take your spare change up to Carthage, you may find that it could be worth something.

The Barton-Jasper County Collectors Association is holding its collectibles show at memorial hall this weekend.

Valuables of all kinds including sports cards, stamps and of course, coins can be bought or traded.

Organizers say don't be fooled by those ads you see on television saying something is a one- of- a- kind piece, because it may result in you losing money.

"Always buy your coins and stamps from a dealer up front so you know what you're getting. And the value usually is a little bit cheaper by buying it up front instead of a newspaper or a TV ad" says Organizer, Brad Potter.

"You can save yourself a lot of money. They put out a lot of things that's a gimmick and they'll put it out for $19.95 and its worth 5 dollars. Or its $9.95 and its worth 2 dollars. you can usually find that thing later on at the coin show for 2 or 3 dollars" Potter says.

If you didn't make it out to Memorial Hall today...the show will continue Sunday from 9 to 3.
