Including Important Items Relating to the Career of Commanding General of the United States Army Alexander Macomb (1782-1841)
Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to offer several items from the recent sale of the extensive holdings of the Swiss noble family Grand d’Hauteville. The family’s holdings were kept at Chateau d’Hauteville, a castle in the municipality of Saint-Légier-La Chiésaz, Canton Vaud, Switzerland. Included are several important items relating to the career of Alexander Macomb, “The Hero of Plattsburgh,” who in 1828 rose to the position of Commanding General of the United States Army.

Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio is honored to offer the wonderful collection of Swiss coins assembled by Ervin F. Bickley in our official ANA auction this August in Chicago. Mr. Bickley, over the course of several decades, hand selected these beautifully designed and preserved coins from dealer stock and from auction sales in the United States and in Europe. During this time, he also assembled a collection of U.S. coins and formed a close relationship with Harvey Stack.
