Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to once again present a dedicated colonial and early American coins session in our November 2021 Showcase Auction. This year marks the 10th year we have presented this official auction of the Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4), held in conjunction with the C4 National Convention. This year’s sale features an exciting array of colonial and pre-federal coins, including long off the market collections, significant new discoveries, and well pedigreed rarities across a variety of series. The offerings span from Massachusetts silver to desirable state coppers and early Washington pieces, with many exciting items in between.
The Norm Peters Collections of New Jersey and Connecticut Coppers feature numerous choice and rare specimens to collectors of these two popular series, and includes an incredibly rare 1787 New Jersey Maris 62-r. The Pierre Fricke Collection of Fugio Coppers will mark the first major auction appearance of a 50-variety set of this historic coinage. Enthusiasts will be excited by such incredible rarities as AU-55 (PCGS) examples of the 1787 Fugio Newman 10-T and Newman-11-A.
Many other significant properties will be offered in addition to these two special cabinets. There is remarkable selection of pieces from the collection of respected dealer Richard Rossa, formerly of Rossa and Tanenbaum, as well as a newly discovered 1658 Lord Baltimore shilling and a rare 1790 Standish Barry threepence. Whether you’re a newcomer to the fascinating world of colonial numismatics looking to dip your toe in, or a seasoned veteran with an advanced collection, there should be something for you in the lots to follow. Enjoy the auction and thanks in advance for your participation.
