Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to offer a Gem 1894-O Barber dime in our Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo. Delicate peach tones and vibrant teal iridescence are seen on this gorgeous Gem, slightly more pink on the reverse. Gold and amber at the peripheries showcase the satiny, matte-like texture of the fields, producing a graceful and uninterrupted cartwheel at a tilt. The devices are nicely bold with silken luster atop each element. This truly captivating piece is among the finest known for the issue.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to offer a lovely 1875-S/CC trade dollar in our upcoming Rarities Night session of the Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo. The platinum brilliance that emanates from this gorgeous overmintmark is dusted by the faintest iridescence in select areas. A silken, almost semi-reflective luster blankets the fields on both sides, displaying a soft but elaborate cartwheel at a tilt. The sharp and intricate motifs are richly frosted and even the most prominent elements are undisturbed.  A thoroughly impressive near-Gem.

As a first year, transitional issue, the 1838 Liberty Seated quarter is eagerly sought by type collectors and quarter specialists alike. The redesigned quarters continued the new composition of .900 fine silver that had been instituted in 1837, but replaced John Reich’s Capped Bust design that had been used since 1815.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries will feature a lovely Mint State 1867-S quarter dollar in its Rarities Night auction session at the official auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo in March. Warm amber-rose tones glow from the centers with deeper twilight hues in the peripheries. The fields are satiny and matte-like on each side, pleasantly smooth and untroubled.

The Mint Finds a Hoard of Carson City Morgan Dollars

Earlier I mentioned the Morgan silver dollars that were released from storage during the mid 20th century. To continue that story, during an audit made in 1964 the Mint discovered a hoard of Carson City silver dollars, mostly original bags that were not melted as the result of the Pittman Act of 1918.
