​In our January New York International Sale we are offering three pieces of the early Tahiti 500 Francs design from the Bank of Indochina. The notes will be offered individually, but they offer a unique opportunity to acquire different types of the same design.

​Last week's preview for the January 2019 Stack's Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the New York International Numismatic Convention featured a lovely Latin American 8 Escudos. This week we continue that trend with the single finest graded Guadalajara Mint "Hand on Book" 8 Escudos. ​

​The 1959 Proof Franklin half dollar is widely available in average condition but presents an incredible challenge at the highest levels of preservation and quality. 1959 marked only the second time the U.S. Mint produced more than 1 million Proof sets, and it was obvious that quality had been sacrificed to attain this figure.

​We are still in need of gold coins.  Any bullion or generic U.S. coins are in demand from our clients and we can't seem to keep them in stock.  American Eagles, all denominations but especially one ounce and 1/10 ounce sell out constantly for us.  ​

​Collectors learned that the Mint was still producing over three million Proof sets each year and that sales were not keeping up. Large stores were building up in the Mint's vaults. Rolls and bags of current issues of U.S. coins in Mint State lost much of their premium, and collectors returned to building collections of more classical coins. ​
