Stack’s Bowers Official Auction Brings In More Than $5.3 Million Dollars at the Whitman Baltimore Summer Expo

The Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the June 2017 Whitman Baltimore Summer Expo offered fresh material and exceptional rarities, resulting in the sale of over $5.3 million in U.S. coins.

From Stack’s Bowers:

A number of spectacular tokens from the Q. David Bowers Collection started off Session One, with the unique 1834 Herring of Fair Mount token realizing $16,450 in lot 9024, followed by the Undated Wright and Bale token in lot 9036 that brought the same strong price. This enthusiasm continued into Federal coinage as the Robert Warner Wolfe Collection approached the auction block. Lot 9202 offered the finest known 1803 Cohen-2 half cent from this cabinet; it was certified AU-58+ (PCGS) and approved by CAC. Ranking finer than even the Missouri Cabinet specimen, this piece drew an astounding $49,350. The highlight of this collection was the stunning AU-53 (PCGS) 1793 Sheldon-3 Chain cent featured in lot 9224. A newcomer to the market as well as to the condition census, this impressive example brought a total of $79,312.
