know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring Liberty Seated Dollars from the
Midwest Cabinet in our official auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money,
August 14-17, 2018 in Philadelphia?
collection was gathered by a father and son team in the early to mid 2000s. The
original goal of the collection was a set of original Liberty Seated silver
dollars in EF to AU condition. This was a challenge as, in the words of our
consignor: “It is often more difficult to locate these large coins in nice,
mid-level grades than it is to find them in higher grades. Many of the coins we
encountered were dinged, hairlined, or had some other problem.”
went on, the collectors developed “champagne taste” and many of the pieces in
the collection were replaced, as higher grade pieces became available. At this
time we are pleased to offer duplicates, coins that were carefully chosen in
the early days that the cabinet was being built.
consignor reminded us of the words of Dr. John Wong and his family, related in
our catalog for the November 30, 2001, sale of that gentleman’s Liberty Seated
dollars: “We are but temporary guardians of these beautiful coins. One day,
others will, in turn, enjoy them.” It is in this spirit that the current
Liberty Seated silver dollars are passed on to their future owners.
