Among the many significant highlights featured in our December 2017 Collectors Choice Online Auction is a beautiful MS-63 (PCGS) 1902-O Barber half dollar offered in lot 91218. This beautiful Choice Mint State example is mostly brilliant, with just a subtle dusting of apricot patina around the obverse border. Frosty luster blankets each side, and the fields are particularly satiny and smooth.

Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring the A.J. Vanderbilt Collection at our official auction of the Whitman Coin and Collectibles Spring Expo? The A.J. Vanderbilt Collection had its beginning in 1936 when its collector started buying coins from Stack’s at the age of 15. He continued filling holes in the collection until his recent passing at the age of 96. He built marvelous sets focused on 25 specific years in U.S. numismatics, with the goal of acquiring high quality circulation strike examples of every date and mintmark combination and major type of every denomination struck in those years.

The Eldorado Collection of Colombian Coins and Paper Money, to be offered in two auction catalogs, is the finest ever cataloged and represents an important event in Latin American numismatics. The Eldorado Collection is so sweeping in scope, that these catalogs are only the initial offerings, featuring many of the rarest and highest grade selections from this epic cabinet.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to offer the collection of popular tradesmen tokens of New Zealand as assembled by Mr. James Heegeman. Mr. Heegeman had spent nearly 40 years collecting, and acquired the nicest examples he could find.  His collection includes many rare to extremely rare varieties, mules and patterns, an accumulation that clearly took him decades to assemble and painstakingly attribute.

Today’s preview of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries January NYINC auction continues the story started last week with the Rare One Year Type Ruble of Elizabeth. Born in August 1740 to Duchess Anna Leopoldovna (niece of Empress Anna of Russia), the arrival of Ivan VI seemed a stroke of luck to then Empress Anna. In 1740 she was 47 years old, in failing health and without a clear successor to the throne.

At the recent Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo in Baltimore I spent the best part of two days visiting with collectors, dealers, and others. It was a super dynamic show—what with multiple sessions of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries auction, the annual meeting of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4), and endless activity on the bourse floor. Everyone with whom I visited said he or she had a great time!
