Did you know that Stack’s Bowers Galleries will be
auctioning the second finest known example of the key date 1796 With Pole half cent rarity in
the March 2021 Showcase Auction? Graded MS-66 Red Brown by PCGS (only surpassed
by a MS-66+ RB example), this specimen traces its pedigree to the D. Brent
Pogue Collection, a cabinet known for conditional rarities and immaculate coins.
Only a tiny number of high grade examples of the 1796 With Pole half cent
survived. Surprisingly, this specimen was discovered in England, the source of
at least three other high grade 1796 half cents.
Stack’s Bowers Galleries has offered rarities like this 1796
half cent for decades and continues to realize top prices when such pieces are
offered in the present market. In 2020, we sold eight of the ten most expensive
coins. In 2021, we have already sold 16 items that brought more than $50,000.

Galleries is the brand you can trust. To consign to a future sale, contact us
