A PCGS/CAC MS-63 Example of the Betts-561, W-1730 Type

For the last several weeks I have been hard at work with the rest of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries team preparing the catalog for our upcoming June Baltimore Auction. While researching and writing descriptions for a very nice colonial and early American medal consignment earlier this week I came across a simply beautiful Rhode Island Ship medal certified MS-63 by PCGS and verified by CAC.

“It’s my money and I can spend it how I want to!

So true.

Without a doubt, the August ANA World’s Fair of Money is the numismatic event of the year and is eagerly awaited by all. The gathering resonates with immense enthusiasm by all participants. Often, this is the annual one stop convention destination for many dedicated collectors who recognize the opportunity to obtain elusive treasures and participate in club meetings and forums to advance their knowledge. The Official ANA auction is the most important sale of the year and Stack’s Bowers Galleries is once again honored to conduct this venue at both the pre-show and main event in Philadelphia. These auctions will contain the widest variety of material possible, in all price ranges, and from all numismatic genres — United States coins and medals, ancient and world coin coinage, and of course paper money.

Since the opening by the senior Stack brothers, Joseph and Morton, of their coin shop in New York in 1933, the company has always had a street front shop in a popular upscale location in New York City. Our present location, which the Stack family moved to in 1953, is very much like it was then. We are located at 123 West 57th Street (a wonderful walking street!) within a few feet of Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall in the lower part of the Hotel Salisbury.

If there is one question we are repeatedly asked it is “what is the state of the Chinese market?” My answer in short is very healthy and rapidly evolving. However that being said this is not a question that can be easily answered with a short one liner.
