In my early years of working full time at Stack's in New York, I had the privilege of meeting and serving many of the great collectors who lived near the city, as well as many who came to visit or work in New York. The Big Apple was and still is a major attraction for collectors who lived, worked or visited the metropolitan area and Stack’s was a great place to meet with friends and collectors as they assembled their numismatic collections.

Here is the answer to last week's test your knowledge! Did you pass the test?  Stay tuned for a new trivia question next week.​

Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ Vice President of Numismatics, Vicken Yegparian, was featured the Barron’s article “Selling the Boyhood Coin Collection.”  Click here to read more: http://www.barrons.com/articles/selling-the-boyhood-coin-collection-1461387018#:PHFUGVQ06Pg14A

The inaugural preview for our upcoming Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August Hong Kong Showcase Auction is an exceptional Cambodian 4 Franc restrike. Cambodia became a French protectorate in August of 1863 as a result of King Norodom petitioning the French Consul for assistance.

On behalf of Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Sotheby’s, I welcome you to Part IV of our auction program of the D. Brent Pogue Collection of early United States coins. More than any other sale held in the entire calendar of American numismatics, including our first three Pogue sales, Part IV comprises a group of ultra-rarities without equal. As a bidder, buyer, or interested observer you will be part of an event that will forever echo in the pantheon of this specialty. You will have a rendezvous with numismatic history. From the first important rare coin auction held in 1851 – the Roper Collection – down to the present day, there has been nothing comparable, not even close.

Featured in the Rarities Night session of our official auction of the 2016 ANA World's Fair of Money will be a handsome 1803 Draped Bust silver dollar, a chronological sibling to the “King of American Coins” and an important rarity in its own right. The 1803 issue is a significant and somewhat enigmatic mintage.

For our inaugural preview of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries August 2016 ANA World’s Fair of Money auction – held in Anaheim, California – we have a nice rarity that is the finest certified of its kind by a large margin. Our highlight for today is a Czechoslovakian 1934 10 Dukaten commemorating the reopening of the Kremnica Mine. With a mintage of just 68 pieces the population is small, with this example (certified by NGC with a grade of Mint State 68) standing as the finest graded by a three-point margin at both PCGS and NGC.
