Focus on Colonial Coins

Wonderful Selection of Colonial Coins Coming Up

Get ready! Get set! Almost go!

Coming at the Whitman Coin Expo in Baltimore two weeks from now is one of the greatest series of auction sessions we have ever had at that popular event, Not one, not two, but seven separate catalogs were produced for our Official Auction!

Vermont copper coins of the 1785 to 1788 years are among my favorite coins. You may have a copy of the book I did last year on them. Our auction at the Expo offers a marvelous selection of state coppers, including those of Vermont, among which are multiple examples of RR-1 with the IMMUNE COLUMBIA reverse. There is also a separate catalog featuring New Jersey coppers, and another that concentrates on Massachusetts silver and Connecticut coppers. Beyond these, there is a special session dedicated to colonial and early American coins in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4). Founded in 1993, this is one of the most dynamic specialty groups in numismatics today. Check their website and sign up. The cost is minimal and the pleasures are great. I have been a member since day one.

To get ready for this important event I encourage you to take the latest copy of the Guide Book of United States Coins and read about colonial coins and state coppers. While you are at it, download our catalogs free from our website -- stacksbowers.com -- and review the offerings of colonial and early American coins. 

If you plan to attend the Whitman Winter Expo in person, track me down and say hello. I always enjoy talking about coins. It doesn’t matter if you just started or if you have been around for a long time. If you will not be attending, you can participate in real time as our auction sessions will be live on the Internet.

All good wishes, and thank you for your interest.
