Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries,  announced today that Chris Napolitano is no longer with the firm.  “Chris’s contract has come to an end and he will be pursuing other opportunities within the coin industry. I sincerely thank Chris for all he contributed and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” Kendrella related.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to announce the results of their Official Ancients, World Coin and Paper Money Auction of the 2015 ANA World’s Fair of Money in Rosemont, Illinois.  Overall, prices realized were robust, with many previously soft areas showing a marked increase in bidder activity. It is becoming more apparent with each passing auction that the market is improving, driving up prices, especially on better material.  (All prices realized include the standard buyer’s premium).

Prices were strong in the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Currency Auction of the 2015 ANA World’s Fair of Money held August 14 and 17, as 339 lots of U.S. currency realized more than $1.55 million. The prices realized were a positive indication for the market as it emerges from its usual summer slump. Adding to the optimism was a number of higher valued lots in multiple categories that sold either comfortably within or above their pre-auction estimates.

“Excitement” was the buzzword at the annual ANA World’s Fair of Money held last week in Rosemont, Illinois, a familiar and popular venue for collectors and dealers alike. Adding to the excitement of this annual summer event were two official auction sales of U.S. coins held by Stack’s Bowers Galleries. The company’s ever-popular Rarities Night session was held August 13 and was  a resounding success. Its 306 premium lots realized over $6.45 million, with fierce bidding activity throughout the entire session. The second of the two sales comprised two sessions and along with the U.S. currency auction and world coins and currency auction, realized over $14 million.
