By Bruce Roland Hagen, Senior Research Numismatist and Cataloger
It is one of our great pleasures at Stack’s Bowers Galleries to work with passionate collectors during the formation of their numismatic cabinets. When they select us to catalog and auction the final fruits of their passion, acumen, financial commitment and effort, it serves to amplify that pleasure we all share as numismatists. Once again, a distinguished collector and friend has selected us to offer his superb, handpicked collection of American Colonial Paper Money along with a complete type set of Continental Congress notes at our Official March 2014 Baltimore auction. Across four decades, our consignor sought out the highest quality and hand selected notes for strong eye appeal. He crafted a historically endowed tapestry of early American History and art with quality notes that exemplify the period.
