By Harvey G. Stack, Founder

During the early 1960s the rituals of working with Mr. Lilly and building his world class collection continued. He would visit Stack's twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring on his annual trip to and from to Florida. I would then visit him at his home at least twice a year to make deliveries of new items for his collection. The relationship was always warm and friendly.

The Stack’s Bowers team is headed to Schaumburg, Illinois for the 77th Central States Numismatic Society Convention. Once again, it will be held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center. The show begins with a “professional preview” Wednesday, April 26, from noon until 6 PM, and is open to the public Thursday, April 27 through Saturday, April 29, from 10 AM to 6 PM.

On April 3, at our Hong Kong paper money auction, we offered a 1951 10,000 Yuan from the People’s Bank of China in Lot 70204. The note was certified as an About Uncirculated 50 with serial number block 123. This 10,000 Yuan note, considered the most desirable of the first series of Renminbi, was every bit worthy of the AU-50 grade.
