Thank you for your interest in our ongoing series of auctions of the D. Brent Pogue Collection. If you have been a part of the first two auctions of the Pogue Collection – as a bidder, buyer, or interested bystander – we encourage you to continue. You will be part of numismatic history in the making.
In coming weeks we will focus on our Part III auction, to be held at Sotheby’s on February 19, 2016, with our Rarities Sale the next day. It’s not too early to plan to attend.
If you haven’t already, we encourage you to find out more about the D. Brent Pogue Collection by reading two great books by Q. David Bowers. These books offer general background information and much more about the numismatic market and events from the 19th century onward:
Treasures from the D. Brent Pogue Rare Coin Cabinet, 208 pages, color illustrated, quality hardbound. This tells the stories of 100 special coins in the copper, silver and gold series, selected from over 650 specimens to be auctioned. We guarantee you several evenings of enjoyable reading. $39.95 plus shipping.
The 1822 Gold Half Eagle: Story of a Rarity, 128 pages, color illustrated, quality hardbound. The Pogue Collection 1822 half eagle, the only one in private hands, provides the opportunity to discuss the three pieces in existence (the other two are in the National Numismatic Collection), their owners over a long period of time, and the story of coin collecting from the 19th century to modern times. $39.95 plus shipping.
