​Our November 2019 Baltimore Auction offers an incredible parade of treasures for specialists in Numismatic Americana, among which is a pair of rare field worn Indian Peace Medals of particularly desirable types. Included is a 1798 Washington Seasons Medal in silver and a 1799 Draped Bust dollar, both holed for suspension, as distributed by Lewis and Clark circa 1804. These two Indian Peace Medals are invaluable historic artifacts of virtually equal significance. The lifecycle of one is somewhat conventional and as intended, while the other was employed in a fashion that its creators would never have envisioned. Individually they are significant, but as a pair they testify to the narrative of our earliest efforts in diplomacy with the Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest.

​Along the lines of many of other Central and South American countries under yoke of Spanish rule, Paraguay declared independence from her colonial oppressors in May of 1811, although it would be governed by dictatorial and military régimes, along with pseudo-presidencies, for the next 60 years. During the extensive "presidency" of Paraguay's first president, Carlos Antonio López, the Paraguayan real was established as the nation's monetary unit in 1845, replacing the use of neighboring currencies.

​From the very beginning of 1970, Stack's was awarded numerous collections for auction, so much so that we were able to have 10 different auctions in the 12-month period. Four of the collections we offered in 1970 were of great importance, as they had rare coins, extremely choice coins and offered the opportunity in each case to find items that were not often available.
