The R.L Miles, Jr. Coin Collection, Part 3

By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

Over the past few weeks I have focused on collector R.L. Miles, Jr. (called by the nickname Skinny) and his evolution from a change sorter into an advanced collector. He used the Guide Books of the 1950s and 1960s to decide which United States gold, silver and copper coins he would collect.

The 400-lot session comprised mostly Chinese banknotes with a sizeable group of other far eastern issuers as well.

The R.L. Miles, Jr. Collection was formed over four decades, starting with the change found in the coins used in the payroll of the Miles family oyster company. R.L.

1836 Gobrecht Dollar from the Collection of a New York Dentist

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

Like the 1796 16 Star half dollar showcased in this space last week, this week’s coin, a lovely and richly toned 1836 Gobrecht silver dollar, is also from a fresh collection consigned by the estate of a New York dentist. This collector, who for many years bought coins from Stack’s via both auction and retail sale, was most active during the early to mid-1980s.
