Stack’s Bowers is pleased to present the Hans and Birgit Neuberg Collection of U.S. gold coins. Assembled primarily in the 1970s, this collection has a strong concentration on early gold types. The majority of the coins were purchased privately from Stack’s and from various Stack’s auctions. Since these were all purchased prior to the invention of third party grading, the coins arrived in our offices uncertified and were subsequently submitted to PCGS for certification.
This collection, fresh to the market, includes some popular and scarce gold issues. Listed below is a small sample of highlights from this fantastic collection. If early United States gold coins are your specialty, be sure to view this collection, as well as the entire Stack’s Bowers Baltimore auction. There will be something for everyone!
