Dear mnfj,
You may visit Mr Bob Chew on the 7th floor of Berjaya Time Square,KL.He is a very friendy dealer,a Penangnite who collected a very good set of Penang coins.

Hello Mr Dickson,
Wa I have heard about a dealer shop inside Berjaya Times Square but never had a chance of visiting him, for sure I will find some time visiting him someday.

Unfortunately I cant make it to Danga JB Coin show because I have an emergency at my kampung at Kelantan. But maybe it is a blessing in disguise because I bought a few nice specimen of Kelantan Pitis at there! will share it later.
