Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to respond to my ivory question. I am glad there have been no problems for people visiting/selling at cue shows

I wanted to ask about something one of the people in this forum said to me in an earlier post regarding my question about taking my cue to a cue show. He said the following....

"05carbondrz March 18, 2017
...... and attendees are not supposed to shop Cues around,Only Dealers who pay for a Spot."

Is this the actual state of affairs right now? I would have thought that dealers would like people bringing their cue to a show and offering it for sale. When I was a coin dealer a good portion of the business I did at coin shows was buying coins from the attendees walking around with their coins.

If this is the case then I will abandon my thoughts of attending an upcoming show. Thanks in advance for all the great advice I have received from this forum.

Shopping one cue around is perfectly fine and acceptable. Shopping a group of cues to attendees as opposed to the dealers who paid to be there is where things go south.

That makes more sense. I was hoping to be able to show the cue to several people in person at one time which seemed like an efficient way to get some exposure and maybe make a deal

That's a phenomenon of the internet - if people see the same item for sale for too long of a period, it loses value as they feel that if others aren't biting, then it must not be worth that much. I remember a couple of loaded cocobola Herceks ten years ago that sat around at a very low price for ages. I wanted to buy one of them, but I wondered if something wasn't wrong with them. Now they are long off the market and I'm sure their value is right where it should be.

If you are either buying or selling, you HAVE to know what the item is worth, or you need to consign it to someone who does. The cue market is not all that great at the moment for high-end vintage, so if you don't like the current market value, just wait.

That's only about 4 months from now and not that far from me so there is a good chance I will make it. Thanks for the advice
