After an event filled week at the 47th Annual New York International Numismatic Convention, the fun doesn't stop when the last dealer packs up on Sunday January 13th to go home.  On the contrary, the Stack's Bowers Galleries Internet Sessions E (42001-42979) and F (43001-44082) take place January 14 and 15, 2019 promptly starting at 9AM PT. While generally accompanied by lower estimated values than the Live – Floor Session, these sessions contain a wide range of rare, interesting, high grade and collectable numismatic treasures from all over the world, as well as notable selections from pedigreed collections including the El Dorado Collection of Colombian Coins, the Collection of Dr. James Eustace Bizzell, II and the Ray Czahor Collection. 

Session E commences on January 14th with ancient coins covering a wide range of collecting interests from Hispania through the Dark Ages comprising many iconic types as well as high grade and collectable examples.  After the Dark Ages, the offering of modern coinage begins with countries represented beginning with Afghanistan and running through Gold Coast:
