The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August 2014 Hong Kong Paper Money Session

The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August 2014 Hong Kong Paper Money Session

By Matt Quinn, Assistant Director of Currency

Just a few days ago the Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August 2014 Hong Kong paper money session took place on August 20th, attracting vigorous participation from collectors and dealers. The 400-lot session comprised mostly Chinese banknotes with a sizeable group of other far eastern issuers as well. Important Empirical issues started the night with the first lot being an unusually high grade Ming Dynasty note, certified by CMC as About Uncirculated 50 OPQ.

Dr. James Mease: A Candidate for the ANA Hall of Fame

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

One of the most important figures in American numismatics is James Mease, M.D., of Philadelphia. In the early 19th century he was the first to publish important studies on the subject. Although he is known to and has been discussed in print by such modern scholars as David F. Fanning, Eric P. Newman, and Joel Orosz, he is unknown to perhaps 99% of numismatists active today.
