​The year 1973 saw a number of initiatives in numismatics that brought about changes in the hobby. At Stack’s these and other events made it a very active and important year for us. My son Lawrence R. Stack (Larry) joined the firm after his graduation from university. As a representative of Stack’s, I worked with the Congress on the Hobby Protection Act and with the American Numismatic Association (ANA) to revamp the numismatic grading system to include numerical grading. As always, Stack’s also had the privilege of offering at public auction important old time collections.

Here is the answer to our holiday themed Test Your Knowledge!

By James McCartney, Senior Numismatist

​Assistant Engraver John Reich’s Classic Head design type was introduced on the large cents of 1808 and debuted on the half cents of the following year. It was relatively short lived on the larger denomination and lasted only through 1814, although it was employed on the half cent for nearly 30 years culminating with the Proof issues of 1836.

​Following voyages from Europe to the New World in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, the influx of inhabitants necessitated currency that would allow for commerce more efficiently than merely transporting coinage from Spain and her main native mint in Madrid. Given the vast natural resources of precious metals in the Central and South American colonies, striking coins locally was an obvious choice. This was accomplished, most popularly and commonly encountered by the numismatic community, at the mint in Mexico City, but also at other colonial mints such as Lima, Guatemala City, and Potosi.
