​Dear Fellow Collector, It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us at the ANA World’s Fair of Money® in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 4-7, 2020. I am also very excited to offer you the opportunity to consign your coins, medals, tokens and paper money to Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction at this year’s August gathering, always known for being the largest and best attended convention of the year. The Stack’s Bowers Galleries August 2020 auction continues a tradition begun with the very first ANA Convention auction, held in New York City in 1939.

​Stack's auction program for 1976 was very exciting, for not only did we have the contract to present the official auction at the ANA’s annual convention in the summer, but we offered seven other major sales as well. Four were before the ANA sale and three came after. In order to get all this work done and continue our normal coin business in the shop and on the road, many evenings and weekends were required of us.

​Featured in our upcoming June 2020 Santa Ana Auction is an incredible MS-68 (PCGS) 1862 Indian cent that stands alone at the top of the condition census. It is the sole finest 1862 cent graded by PCGS or NGC, and is tied with the very finest known across the entire Indian cent series. It is an ideal candidate for a high-end PCGS Registry Set of Indian cents or 19th century type coins. It simply cannot be improved upon.

​An ever-popular collecting motif on ancient coins, the “dolphin rider” types represent an extremely important iconography for the coinage of Tarentum, the city upon which modern Taranto, Italy was built. Tarentum was founded in the 8th century B.C. during a period of Greek colonization, whereby oikistes were sent forth from various Greek cities to establish footholds in the Italian peninsula, which resulted in that area being referred to as “Magna Graecia.” According to tradition, the Spartan Phalanthos founded Tarentum in 708 B.C. and, as was the case with the founders of many of these colonies, he was celebrated as a cult figure following his death.
