Looking through the many rarities to be offered in our August 2016 Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim can be overwhelming. Impressive rarities, top-pop issues, and even unique pieces are all well represented, and the consignment deadline is still nearly a month away

Here is the answer to last week's test your knowledge! Did you pass the test?  Stay tuned for a new trivia question next week.​

From The Coin Collector, Issue #124, March 11, 2002

In this week’s blog I continue with an article written in 2002 by the late Tom Becker of our staff -- an “infomercial” he called it at the time -- about “Kids and Coins.” I hope that this article encourages parents, grandparents and other collectors to consider the benefits of numismatics for young people.

Over the past couple of years I have had the pleasure of having my teenaged grandsons, John and Matthew, accompany me to numismatic conventions and other events, and even act as “interns” at Stack’s Bowers Galleries auctions. Of course, my youngest son, Andrew, has worked for the company for years, but he can hardly be considered a “kid.”

On behalf of Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Sotheby’s, I welcome you to Part III of our auction program of the D. Brent Pogue Collection of early United States coins. Parts I and II, held at Sotheby’s international headquarters in New York City in May and September, are now history. These dynamic sales, cataloged by John Kraljevich and the team at Stack’s Bowers Galleries and held in partnership with Sotheby’s, exceeded all expectations and will forever stand among of the greatest auctions in American numismatics.

For this week’s blog I give listings for numismatic subjects, each with some history or characteristic. Sometimes what seems to be true isn’t! With a nod to “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me,” the popular PBS radio show, and also to Edgar Allan Poe, one of whose works suggested the title, see if you can find out which of each three is correct!

Thoughts on United States Commemorative Coins

Collectors of United States coins have found commemorative coins, primarily half dollars struck to commemorate historical events and important anniversaries in America, an interesting and educational form of collecting.
