Condition Census 1794 Sheldon-29 to Cross the Block at the Official PNG Auction in October

By Greg Cohen, Numismatist & Consignment Director, U.S. & World Coins

A wonderful 1794 Sheldon-29 large cent, graded MS-65 BN by NGC is among the highlights of our upcoming October 79th Anniversary Sale, being held in conjunction with the PNG Invitational Convention in New York City. This cent displays quite bold overall definition, with exquisite, hard satiny surfaces with dominant orange-brown patina.

60 Years in Numismatics

60 Years in Numismatics

Written by Q. David Bowers, Chairman Emeritus

Last week’s World’s Fair of Money in Chicago, the summer show of the American Numismatic Association, was perhaps the best ever in my memory. Activity was intense from beginning to end, as thousands of collectors, dealers, and enthusiasts attended. Our auction sales set many records and covered just about every category from ancient coins to modern, plus paper money, tokens and medals. A particular highlight for me was the John J. Ford Collection, which I attended in part. The offering was absolutely amazing, with duplicates and triplicates of some tokens for which single pieces have not been on the market for years. I have never seen anything like it. I feel confident in saying that a generation hence the sale will be remembered as one of the greatest numismatic opportunities of the 21st century.
