Stack's Bowers Galleries Americana Sales
Posted on 2/3/2014
IRVINE, Calif. — In just a few short days, Stack’s Bowers Galleries will be hosting its annual New York Americana Sale February 5 in its private auction gallery, located at 110 West 57th Street, and will resume February 6 at the Le Parker Méridien. Coins, tokens, medals and related items from the United States will be crossing the block during this very popular event.
“Our Americana Sales have become one of the greatest traditions in numismatics, eagerly awaited by everyone and drawing participants from many directions,” said Harvey Stack, a founder of Stack’s Bowers Galleries. “Our upcoming sale contains many highlights and rarities, as you might expect, as well as more affordable coins, and just about everything else in between. Get set for a great event.”
The sale will showcase dozens of important coins. Silver coins include a 1794 half dime, LM-1, Specimen-64 (NGC), an exceptional rarity at this level with an estimated population of no more than a half dozen pieces. Specimen-format coins were produced for presentation purposes, much like Proofs coined during the modern era.
