Stack’s Bowers Galleries has become accustomed to selling impressive collections over their history. The E Pluribus Unum Collection is mentioned among the best of those collections due to its focus on quality and completion. Shown in this week’s blog is the 1631 Dutch Victories in the New World Medal. Our experts call this “one of the classic rarities among the early Betts series.” In the past 20 years, our cataloger has only seen four examples of the medal: two sold in the John W. Adams Collection in 2013 (both of which were originally from Europe), the LaRiviere specimen which we sold in 2001, and the offered example, which we previously featured in the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part XIII. It is with great pleasure that we offer this specimen once again as lot 10001. It has been graded MS-61 by PCGS.
