Happy Holidays!​

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. In numismatics it has been a very good year not only for Stack’s Bowers Galleries but for the entire hobby. In a nation and world of unrest, numismatics is a quiet harbor—a place of rest to enjoy the lore and lure, the history and tradition, the pleasures of studying and collecting coins, tokens, medals, and paper money. Our dynamic series of auction sessions at the Whitman Expo in Baltimore last month still echo—lots of excitement! 

As you read these words, our great sale for the 2020 New York International Numismatic Convention is in the offing—the ideal way to start the new year. If you are adding to your collection, 2020 will offer many opportunities. If it is time for you to sell, the same sentiment is true. One of my great pleasures is working with the staff to make our auctions more than just sales, to make them memorable events. Our success dates back to 1935 and is unequalled by any other rare coin firm in the world, past or present.

To add to your enjoyment I invite you to visit our eBay store at StacksBowers.com to see interesting and informative books we have for sale. Or, you can go to the Whitman Publishing Company website where you will find dozens of titles, including over two dozen by me. An evening of reading about coins will add immeasurably to the pleasures of ownership. Likewise, for me, writing about coins greatly increases my enjoyment of numismatics. If you are an old-timer you may remember the Companion books I created years ago—anthologies of interesting (in my opinion) numismatic stories. I am currently creating a new issue, tentatively titled The Numismatist’s Seaside Companion. 

I encourage you to embrace everything that coin collecting has to offer. If you are not an active client at Stack’s Bowers Galleries, I invite you to become one! You will enjoy the experience. And, at any given time I am just a few internet keystrokes away if I can help.

All good wishes,

Dave Bowers
