This week we showcase another memorable early eagle—part of the 1795 to 1804 $10 gold coins to be offered in our D. Brent Pogue Collection Part II sale. The date is September 30 and the venue is at the international headquarters of our partner, Sotheby’s, in New York City. You are cordially invited to attend as a bidder, buyer, or interested observer. Numismatic history will be made. Overall, this collection is far and away the most valuable ever to cross the auction block worldwide, with no close competition.

Impressive Norweb-O'Neal-Harbor View 1908-D Indian Half Eagle to be Offered in our October 2015 Rarities Auction

By James McCartney, Numismatist & Cataloger. Based on the lot description by Jeff Ambio, Vice President of Numismatics & Auction Catalog Production.

The Denver Mint's initial contribution to the Indian half eagle series amounted to 148,000 pieces during the series' inaugural year. While 1908 half eagles from the Philadelphia Mint wer saved in significant numbers as a first year issue, the 1908-D was largely overlooked by the public, and many fewer Mint State examples survive today.

“My Tiniest Bit of Victoriana”

“My Tiniest Bit of Victoriana”

By Frank Van Valen, Numismatist & Cataloger, U.S. Coins

As a collector of most things exonumia, I have lots of loves. If it’s neat and I’ve never seen it before, there’s a good chance I’ll buy it. If you’ve been a regular reader of this column, then you know how varied my tastes are. One area I love is the coins, tokens, and medals of England’s Queen Victoria.

Comments Concerning the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Chicago

Comments Concerning the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Chicago

By Q. David Bowers, Founder

I left New Hampshire on Friday, August 7, heading to Illinois where I and family members spent a weekend with some friends. Then on Monday it was to the World’s Fair of Money at the Convention Center in Rosemont. The first event of the show was the Professional Numismatists Guild banquet that evening. It was a grand event, nice camaraderie, good food, and a fine way to start the show.
