​​The Stack's Bowers Galleries March 2020 Auction marked a successful kick-off to the firm's 2020 season of flagship U.S. coin sales. Originally scheduled to take place in Baltimore alongside the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Spring Expo, the auction was relocated to the Stack's Bowers headquarters in Orange County, California following the cancellation of all public events in the state of Maryland in response to the COVID 19 pandemic. Despite these uncertain circumstances, the sale realized astounding success, with most sessions earning considerably above their pre-sale estimates, which were determined when the catalogs were produced. In total, over $26.59 million worth of U.S. coins were sold, demonstrating the resilience of the coin market and Stack's Bowers Galleries' superior ability to connect bidders with rare and desirable numismatic treasures.

​The D. Brent Pogue Collection will forever be known as an incredible assembly of the very finest early American coins from 1792 through the 1830s. The five sales already completed featured this portion of the collection, almost to completion, with notable additions such as the fabulous collection of $3 gold coins. Those apparent outliers were a foreshadowing of the pages to follow. What could not be foreseen was Brent’s unexpected passing at age 54 just a few months ago. He is deeply missed by his family, friends and all of us in numismatics.

​A rare 1804 silver dollar, the most famous prize in coin collecting, will be sold in Baltimore on March 20, at an auction conducted by Stack's Bowers Galleries of Santa Ana, California. One of just 15 known to exist, the auction house expects the coin to bring between $1.2 and $1.5 million. When it was auctioned on behalf of Johns Hopkins University in 1980, it became the most valuable silver coin in the world.
