​As Britain's oldest American colony, Bermuda shares nearly 200 years of history in common with the United States before the North American provinces declared independence. The original foundation of the island colony is a direct result of the settlement at Jamestown, which was the earliest English settlement in Virginia and the oldest permanent English settlement in North America. ​

Always a Magnet

Rarities Night and its antecedents have been a tradition with us for many years. It’s several hours of bidding activity that features the finest of the fine, the rarest of the rare — or close, perhaps the numismatic equivalent of a concours d’elegance. These special auction events are always a magnet and attract attention from far and wide.

As you read these words the Stack’s Bowers Galleries “Rarities Night” catalog is either in your hands if you are a client or, otherwise, available with our compliments on the Internet. In some ways the Internet is even better, as state-of-the-art technology makes it possible to present photographs with a sharpness that cannot be equaled with even the finest printing processes.

Among the many great consignments to our official 2013 ANA sale, the Bentley Shores Collection of U.S. Gold Coins will long be remembered for its set of Saint Gaudens Indian Head eagles. The Bentley Shores collector assembled this wonderful collection with the assistance of Gene Nesheim of our staff. When the time came for him to sell his numismatic holdings, he contacted Gene, and after the November 2012 Baltimore Convention, I accompanied Gene to visit the collector and take this collection on consignment for our highly anticipated 2013 ANA sale. Many of the coins are among the finest graded at either NGC or PCGS. Condition rarities and rare dates abound, as do coins that have graced some of the finest Indian Head eagle collections assembled in modern times, including Price, Kutasi, O’Neil, and Michaels.
