In the Stack’s Bowers Galleries tradition of presenting old-time cabinets at auction, The Blue Moon Collection will delight bidders in the firm’s upcoming sale to be held March 29-31, 2017, in Baltimore, Maryland. The collection was started over 50 years ago and comprises chiefly private acquisitions from Stack’s along with astute auction purchases from many of their most famous sales of the 1970s and 1980s, including the Garrett Collection (1976), the 1976 ANA auction, and Auction ’81.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is thrilled to share details of their forthcoming auction of world coins, world paper money and ancient coins, held in conjunction with the prestigious New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC). This event will be held January 12-14 2017 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in vibrant Midtown Manhattan in New York City.

The World Currency Department of Stack’s Bowers Galleries presents their flagship 2017 January New York International Auction, to be held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The firm has been collecting consignments for this sale since the summer and the resulting catalog features material that will exceed expectations. It is truly a sale worthy of the “New York International” name.  Notes of the highest scarcity and desirability will be offered, with many being the finest, and in some cases the only notes known for the type.

Nostalgia for young America was demonstrated throughout the sessions of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the November 2016 Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo, where colonial and classic issues claimed the spotlight at the Baltimore Convention Center. The United States coins portion of the sale saw strong results, surpassing $6.5 million in total prices realized. This marked a wonderful conclusion to the 2016 auction season for Stack’s Bowers Galleries. All prices to follow include the 17.5% buyer’s premium.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to announce Part V of their series of auctions featuring the D. Brent Pogue Collection—the most valuable rare coin collection ever to cross the auction block, and the collection with the highest overall quality. Gathered over a period of many years, dating back to the 1970s, many if not most of the coins have been off the market for decades. Virtually without exception, each coin is the very finest of its kind or is among the top several.
