Did You Know?

Did you know the publicity around the D. Brent Pogue Collection has traveled far and wide, getting to the ears of a financial adviser with a client who had a handful of gold coins? In that small group was a lustrous 1808 $2.50, the property of a lady who purchased it with her husband from a collector in the 1960s. It sat untouched in a safe deposit box for half a century until it was recently graded AU-55 by NGC and consigned to the Stack’s Bowers Galleries October 2015 Rarities Auction. We are accepting consignments for this special sale in conjunction with Sotheby’s until August 11. Contact your favorite consignment director today to consign alongside this beautiful rarity.
