Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring the Larry Ness Collection of Indian Peace Medals in our November 11-13, 2020 auction? Larry Ness built one of the best and most complete Indian Peace Medal collections of all time. He had remarkable success acquiring the silver originals awarded to Native Americans, collecting 36 examples ranging from a First Size Thomas Jefferson through the extremely rare 1890 Benjamin Harrison. Bronze medals begin with John Adams and include important rarities of the later Oval series. Also showcased is a representative collection of French, Canadian, and British medals in silver and bronze, as well as a pair of very rare medals related to the Fur Trade.
This sale was originally scheduled for March 2020 but was rescheduled to our November 2020 event, and it promises to be a highlight among many important offerings. An edited, updated version of the sale catalogue will be prepared, and our online presentation of this collection reflects all of the edits.
