The Maurice Snow Collection – Did You Know?

​Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is featuring the Maurice Snow Collection in our official auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money?  Maurice Snow began his numismatic collecting with a hoard of gold coins that had been assembled by his father beginning in the 1920s and continuing through the Depression Era. The younger Mr. Snow, working in close partnership with eminent Philadelphia-based dealer Harry J. Forman, and with dealers from around the nation, accumulated his collection from the 1950s through the 1980s, gradually focusing on gold U.S. coins. The pride of his collection was the nearly complete, high quality set of three-dollar pieces offered here. It is missing only the key date 1875. Mr. Snow’s Liberty and Indian Head $2.50 collection is also impressive for its completeness and quality. It lacks only a few key dates (1840-D, 1841, 1854-S) which he never found. In addition, a few more common later date pieces have been retained by the family as mementoes of the collection, including an incredible fake 1862-S. These collections have remained off the market for decades, and were stored in a security vault until recently consigned to Stack’s Bowers Galleries for auction.  Our official auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money will cross the block August 13-16, 2019 in Rosemont Illinois.  Visit StacksBowers.com to participate online or call 800-458-4646 to order a catalog.
