I became a professional numismatist, trained not only by my father and uncle, but also by Stack’s staff of experts and the collectors I met at our shop or at occasional numismatic shows.  Traveling was not as easy in the post World War II era as it is now, so I mostly stayed in New York City, where Stack’s was already a well known coin shop.

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. 

Did you know that Stack’s Bowers Galleries will be presenting “The 1853 Collection?” This important type collection will be spotlighted in our October-November Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo. Small in scope but encompassing every denomination in copper, silver, and gold of 1853, the collection includes one of America’s greatest rarities, the 1853-O No Arrows half dollar, of which fewer than a half dozen examples are thought to exist. To request a catalog of this important auction event, call our Auction Services Department at 800-458-4646.
