Two Auctions Are Better Than One

July 24, 2017

     This year’s ANA World’s Fair of Money is in Denver, Colorado and it is just a little over a week away. There will be two official auctions for the ANA, hosted by Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries.

     Stack’s Bowers Galleries will feature two well-known rarities that should attract some very intense bidding. The Lord St Oswald-Norweb 1794 Flowing Hair Dollar in PCGS MS64 with the CAC sticker should be the star of this sale. It was thirty years ago when this coin last saw a public auction and is considered the fourth finest known for this date.

     The super rare 1853 O Seated Half Dollar No Arrows in PCGS VF35 is one of just four known and it is the finest known to date. We currently list the VG8 at $180,000 Market with no values any higher to this point. Below are some of the other potential highlights from this Stack’s Bowers Galleries sale.
