The below listed reports are from the Numismatic Crime Information Center. Coin dealers are being targeted across the country. Once you place your inventory in the car, do your best not to stop anywhere until you get to your final destination. If possible, travel with someone in the same car or travel two cars together so if you have to stop, one can remain with the vehicles. Watch your mirrors regularly to see if someone appears to be following you. Contact local law enforcement to report suspicious vehicles or persons at shows or on the highway. Stay safe!
