This week I would like to share a story of a recent encounter I had working here at Stack’s Bowers Galleries. Earlier this week I received a phone call from hundreds of miles away. This prospective consignor had a coin for which he had receive an offer on that seemed quite low to him. I asked what coin he had and how much he was offered. It turns out he has a very scarce and desirable territorial gold piece, and that coin is worth many multiples of the local offer he received. This is why he reached out to us for full transparency and guidance. After a lengthy phone conversation, he is sending the coin to us for placement in our 2024 Spring Showcase auction. The shipment is fully insured with us and now this client gets to watch our loyal bidders provide the full market value for his coin. We are able to give the client the opportunity to take advantage of the upside this Mormon half eagle has to offer.
All of us here at the New York gallery are eager to answer your calls and work with whatever your circumstances may be. Whether you are local, states away or international, a novice or a seasoned expert, we are here to help!
We are auctioning off our November 2023 Showcase this very week. Following that we have a shortened holiday week coming up where we close for the week on Wednesday. We will then be focusing on taking in consignments for the Spring 2024 Showcase Auction that has a January 25, 2024 deadline for consignments. The earlier consignments come in the better. Please give us a call at the number listed above to make an appointment, plan out a shipment or just get our honest, straightforward advice.
