It is all over but the shouting! A familiar expression, this. I am speaking of the Americana sale held by Stack’s Bowers Galleries in New York City from Tuesday, January 22 through Thursday night, January 24. Actually, although shouting continues and the event will echo in the halls of numismatics -- perhaps forever, what with the world’s record $10 million realization for the 1794 silver dollar -- a lot is still going on. Letters, emails, and other messages of congratulations are arriving from all directions, the Americana Sale has inspired a flood of potential sellers to contact our consignment directors, and more nice things have happened.
