Did you know that Stack’s Bowers Galleries has a Glossary of Terms on their website? This glossary is designed to help both newcomers and seasoned collectors identify common phrases and words used within the collecting community. For example, do you know what “Accolated” means? Accolated means an overlapped impression, as with two or more portraits on the face of a coin. Example: The 1900 Lafayette commemorative silver dollar bears the accolated portraits of Washington and Lafayette.

This reference tool is one of the many ways that Stack’s Bowers Galleries tries to make collecting and learning as easy as possible. If you need help with a term that isn’t on the list, please email us at [email protected] and our experts would be happy to help!​
