The Stack’s Bowers Galleries March Baltimore currency auction will feature fascinating National Currency notes from the German American Banknote Collection. This collection, assembled by a private collector over the course of about 50 years, includes 55 notes from banks with German-American ownership. Our consignor sought to capture the story of German immigration to America in the 19th century and early 20th century as it was told through National Currency.

This preview for the Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio April 2018 Hong Kong Showcase Auction features a gorgeous example of a rare pattern Silver Dollar from the final period of the Chinese Empire and the Qing (Ch’ing) Dynasty. The Central Mint in Tientsin minted a multitude of coinage types in the later portion of the Empire, in an attempt to unify the currency system of China. Unfortunately, China’s administrative disorganization (as well as a lack of sufficient funds) inhibited the reforms from gaining traction. Certainly the revolution overthrowing the monarchy later that year also prohibited widespread use.
