In recent updates I have written about how busy we have been here at Stack’s Bowers preparing for our Pogue Part V, March Baltimore, and April Hong Kong auctions and how these events would be the next major barometer of market health.  I am pleased to report that our most recent auction results indicate that the market is quite strong!

This week’s featured highlight from our official June 2017 Baltimore Expo Auction is an extreme rarity from the Capped Bust half eagle series that has been called “the rarity of this type!” by specialist John Dannreuther. The 1810 Large Date, Small 5 half eagle is a product of one of the most elusive die marriages from the early U.S. Mint, and any example is among a small but prestigious group.

One important highlight offered in the upcoming May Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auction hails from the South Asian -- specifically the country of India.  Due to the threat of war against the Axis powers (which was officially declared in September 1939), hoarding of coinage was a real problem. 

Did you know the Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Sotheby’s sale of the D. Brent Pogue Collection Part V featured the highest quality group of early United States cents ever sold in a single auction! The group’s total face value added up to $1.42 and they brought a total of $12,026,653.75! This is nearly 8.5 million times their value as pocket change. This collection crossed the block on March 31, 2017. Click here to read more.

Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio brought their semi-annual World Paper Money sale to the Mira Hotel where it attracted spirited bidding from all over the world. This was a very successful Hong Kong offering of banknotes, indicating that the market is on the rise, with many coins and notes exceeding high estimate, and bringing record prices. All prices listed include the buyer's premium.

​Thinking of selling? If so, let our success be your success. If you have a fine collection for sale—large or small—or interesting duplicates, or other valuable items, tap into the world's finest rare coin auction service.
