With the holiday season upon us, the entire team here at Stack’s Bowers Galleries is gearing up for a busy December and January. We hope that you will join us for some of the exciting goings on; it will certainly be an historic January for us.
This weekend, Greg Cohen and Amandeep Jassel from our New York office will be representing the firm at the monthly Parsippany, New Jersey monthly coin show. This is one of the most popular and important monthly shows in the country, and they will be there to buy and sell coins, as well as discuss the upcoming auction schedule with collectors and dealers alike. This will also be among the last opportunities to meet with a consignment director and include your rare coins in our January Americana Sale.
With the New Year, dealers and collectors of world and ancient numismatics focus their attention on the New York International Numismatic Convention, held at the world famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. This is the largest convention in the United States dedicated to non-US coins. As an official auctioneer of the convention, Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio has prepared a wonderful auction sale, highlighted by the Robert O. Ebert Collection of Ancient Roman coins, which contains many extremely rare and high grade issues, as well as one of the largest collections of the Emperor Hadrian. We are also proud to present further selections from the Demarete Collection, as well as coins, medals, and paper money from many important consignors. Our auction will be conducted January 11-12, 2013. Catalogs are in production now.
Finally in January, we will be offering one of the greatest collections of US coins to be offered in quite some time: the Cardinal Collection. The core of the collection is a date set of large cents, in absolutely amazing high grade condition, but the spotlight will also shine brightly on the two silver coins included in the collection: the 1792 half disme graded MS-68 by NGC and the Neil-Carter-Contursi 1794 silver dollar, certified Specimen-66 by PCGS, thought by many experts to be the first US silver dollar struck. This multi-million dollar collection will anchor a special Rarities Night Session to be held at the opulent Le Parker Meridien Hotel. Additional sessions of US coins, tokens and medals will be offered in our auction gallery at 110 W. 57th Street.
In between, all of these exciting events, we are serving clients in our remodeled retail store at 123 W. 57th Street. Our numismatists have been busy buying and selling rare coins and bullion items. Our inventory is ever changing, so if you have a specific item that you are looking for, please let a member of our staff know, and we will try and locate it for you.
From all of us here at Stack’s Bowers, we wish you and your families the very best for a happy and healthy holiday season.
