As always, all eyes in the numismatic world were on the fabulous Stack’s Bowers Galleries series of auctions that took place in Baltimore July 16 and 17, 2015. When all was said and done, the total realization for the collection went far past the pre-sale estimate realizing over $10 million. Anchored by the Twin Leaf Collection of middle and late-date large cents and the Douglas C. Kaselitz Collection of U.S. type coins, the end results were nothing short of spectacular. More than half a dozen lots realized hammer prices in the six-figure range, and numerous other lots pushed that level in a frenzy of bidding activity in the auction gallery, on the telephone, and worldwide on the Internet.
