​The year 1994 continued the upward trend in numismatics that had begun with the recovery from the Black Monday stock market "crash" of November 1987. This recovery was helped by the fact that the precious metals markets held their value, so coins that contained gold and silver may have lost a little value, but in general were considered a "good hold." During times when the stock market was way down, coins made of precious metals were considered by many to be a store of value and a better source for investment.​

​We are proud to present an example of the perennially famous Gobrecht dollar in our Spring 2022 Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo. The historic 1836 "Name on Base" dollar is the first issue of this denomination produced for circulation since those struck in 1804 from 1803-dated dies. Silver dollar production was suspended in the early 19th century after the value of the silver in each coin exceeded its face value. While proposals to resurrect this denomination started as early as 1831, it was not until 1835 that a serious attempt was made.​

​Stack's Bowers Galleries continues to see strong action in the numismatic market. A 1921 Mexico 50 Peso, graded MS-65+ by PCGS reached a final sale price of $17,400 highlighting both the strength of the Mexican market, and the extreme popularity of coins in exceptional condition. The market for Czechoslovakian Ducats in uncirculated grades continued its ascent, with a 1930 example graded NGC MS-64+ selling for $11,400. Despite recent geopolitical events, Russian prices appear undampened, as is highlighted by the key date 1903-AP Ruble offered in NGC MS-63 selling for $9,900.​

​The First National Bank of Palestine was chartered on May 5th, 1887, issuing $1,604,060 through the end of the National Currency period, with just $5,780 in large size reported outstanding in 1935. The City of Palestine was established in 1843, with the Texas legislature designating Palestine to serve as the seat for newly established Anderson County in 1846. Palestine was supposedly named after the city in Illinois by preacher Daniel Parker, although other sources attribute the name to a migrant from the same Illinois city. ​
