Stack’s Bowers Galleries Presents the Milt Tretiak Collection and Other Properties

Publicity for this, the newest Professional Numismatists Guild event, bills it as a “premier” show—which, no doubt, it will be. It is also, for sure, the premiere or first show of its kind. From October 9 to 11 there will be exciting auction activity, a bourse with some of the nation’s leading dealers, and a lot of fun and camaraderie.

Stack’s Sells the Dr. Conway A. Bolt Collection in 1966, Part 1

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

During the later half of the 20th century Stack's was awarded many major collections for sale at Public Auction. One of the major collections sold in 1966 was the great collection formed by Dr. Conway A. Bolt. Dr. Bolt was devoted to numismatics and pursued his collection of coins enthusiastically. He celebrated his 50th anniversary in the hobby shortly before his collection was offered at public auction.

Coin Quiz from Coin Collector #49, December 16, 1996: What Can The Date Be?

Coin Quiz from Coin Collector #49, December 16, 1996: What Can The Date Be?

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

There are many instances in American numismatics in which a coin can be viewed from the reverse (or dateless side) and because the reverse is so distinctive, the obverse date can be determined -- that is if you have a good knowledge of die varieties and types.

Here I will give clues concerning five (well, six with the bonus question) different United States coins that can be identified by their reverses. See how many you can get.

The R.L Miles, Jr. Coin Collection, Part 5

The R.L Miles, Jr. Coin Collection, Part 5

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

In the early part of this story I told of the dedication and interest that R.L. Miles Jr. put into completing to the best of his ability his collection of United States gold , silver and copper coins. R.L. Miles, Jr. (known to his friends as "Skinny," a name he received while playing various sports in college) began collecting when he was a cashier in his family's Oyster business, and, using the Guide Book listings of his time, proceeded with the challenge to collect the varieties listed in that reference.
