This week's Coins in Motion Highlight of the week video is a bit different. I have asked one of our Stack's Bowers Galleries experts to provide some insight on three major rarities that we will offer in just under two months. Listen in as Larry Stendebach discusses the 1908 Chinese Empire Dollar (PCGS SP-64+), 1907 Chinese Empire Pattern Tael (PCGS SP-61), and 1908 Year 34 Chinese Dollar (PCGS SP-64). All coins are in Specimen Condition, which enhances their rarity. Combine that with the detail and toning that is displayed, and we have three very desirable coins.​


Coins in Motion seeks to enable collectors, bidders, and consignors to accurately appreciate how Stack's Bowers Galleries coins look in hand. Ultra-high resolution animations depict how luster moves over the coin's surfaces, while the rotating motion allows for any possible imperfections to be revealed. Stack's Bowers Galleries is proud to have acquired Coins in Motion. To view our YouTube Playlist dedicated to Coins in Motion, click here. Videos are added weekly.
