One of the highlights of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries ANA World’s Fair of Money will be The Dr. James A. Ferrendelli Collection of Early American Gold Coins. This offering is by die varieties, not just Guide Book varieties, and is one of the most comprehensive of its kind to be offered.

A beautiful specimen of the “King of American Coins,” the world-famous 1804 silver dollar, will be presented in the Stack’s Bowers Galleries official auction in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money in Rosemont, Illinois. The 1804 dollar will be a star attraction in the company’s Rarities Night Auction scheduled for Friday, August 8.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is honored to announce that the firm has been chosen to market the most valuable collection of federal American coins ever formed. Assembled over several decades by the Pogue family of Dallas, Texas and built under the connoisseurship of D.
