​We are thrilled to offer a historic Brazilian 6400 reis regulated by New York City goldsmith John Burger in Rarities Night of our August 2019 ANA Auction.  Any piece of Regulated Gold is a rare prize, but a connection to John Burger and the economy of America's first capital city makes this piece particularly historic. It is the quintessential survivor from this exclusive series, balancing expert production and exceptional preservation. It is sure to serve as a crowning jewel in an advanced cabinet of early American issues.

​Ever an iconic denomination and focal point of countless coin collections, the taler—a large-sized and weighty silver piece—has been the basis for much of the world's economy since the late 15th century. At that time, Sigismund, the Archduke of Austria and a member of the Habsburg family, enacted a new and fairly radical monetary policy whereby large format silver coinage would be reintroduced, as much of Europe had relied upon thin, low-grade, and rather uninspiring denominations for nearly a millennium. ​

​Though considered Rarity-4 (121-160 known), the 1795 O-109 Flowing Hair half dollar is deceptively scarce. Our firm has handled just 27 examples over the past 15 years, averaging out to fewer than two coins per year, the majority of which were graded VF-20 or lower. Over the same period, we have offered 70 1879 Flowing Hair Gold Stellas and 686 MCMVII (1907) High Relief Saint-Gaudens double eagles.​

​Did you know Stack's Bowers Galleries is showcasing the famous 1894-S dime in our official auction of the ANA World's Fair of Money?  Among great American coin rarities, the 1894-S dime stands high in the front rank. The appearance of one in the marketplace is always a cause for excitement. Over a long period of years Stack's Bowers Galleries has offered several, always to excitement and acclaim.​

​Now comes another—a coin that has been off the market for more than three decades and is fresh to most of the present generation of bidders. This coin is an old friend, so to speak, as Stack's sold it in January 1953 as a highlight in the F.S. Guggenheimer Collection, after which it passed through other hands to Los Angeles sports magnate Jerry Buss. It was last sold 31 years ago. Now at the forthcoming ANA World's Fair of Money in August it will cross the block again as part of the E. Horatio Morgan Collection, a private cabinet with many treasures. It has been graded Proof-63 by PCGS, a branch Mint Proof. ​

Among the most coveted early American coppers are the Proof large cents struck in the mid-19th century.  With production figures shrouded in mystery, Proof large cents have been the subject of intense scholarly debate and serve as crown jewels in the most advanced cabinets.
