Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring items from The Strong, National Museum of Play, located in Rochester, New York, in next week’s official auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Winter Expo?  The Strong is a highly interactive museum devoted to the history and exploration of play and houses the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of historical material related to play.  The items in this sale represent the latest stage in The Strong’s continuous development of an outstanding collection. Funds from the sale of the museum’s numismatic materials will be dedicated to new acquisitions and the care and preservation of objects in the collection.

On July 15, 2015, the National Numismatic Collection was returned to the displays at the Smithsonian.  For close to a decade, portions of the National Collection were not exhibited as the Museum of American History at the Smithsonian was reduced in size and the museum went through major renovation.

Over the many years we have served the numismatic hobby by auctioning coins, our catalogs have presented numismatic items in a scholarly manner that others have tried to duplicate but with little success. We have been fortunate to serve well over 100 well known museums, colleges, universities, historical societies, libraries and other well known depositories of historical items, primarily with their numismatic items.
