The Professional Numismatists Guild (http://www.PNGdealers.org) has scheduled a show in Dallas, Texas, Thursday to Saturday, February 26 – 28, 2015.

“The Dallas Coin & Paper Money Show sponsored by the PNG will be held at the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center, and it will be open to the public,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

“This will be an opportunity for collectors in the Southwest to meet and do business with many PNG member-dealers from around the country who usually do not attend the local Dallas area shows in Fort Worth, Grapevine and Richardson, Texas.  We also are accepting applications for bourse tables from non-PNG members,” added PNG President Terry Hanlon.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions is the official auctioneer for the show.

Special discount room rates of $190 a night are available at the Gaylord Texas Resort, conveniently located about seven miles from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

Additional information about the show will be announced in the coming months.
