​We hope you can join us next week as the Tampa Collection Part 2 crosses the block in our Collectors Choice Online Auction. The sale will close live with an auctioneer beginning on November 18, 2020, at 9:00 AM PST.  The Tampa Collection is an impressive cabinet of over 700 Civil War tokens including numerous strikings on scarce metals, examples overstruck on coins, and classic rarities too. Quality was a major focus of the collector, and many of these items are at or near the top of the population. With a wide variety of Patriotics, Store Cards from all over the nation, and a handful of Sutlers there is something for everyone in this sale.

​Venerable auction firm Stack's Bowers and Ponterio continues to deliver world class sales of quality numismatic material and realize impressive prices, despite the challenging and unprecedented circumstances of the year 2020.
