Across the Stack’s Bowers Galleries organization we are preparing our spectacular auction for the Whitman Coins & Collectibles Expo to be held in Baltimore in November. This is probably the third most dynamic show of the year, after the World’s Fair of Money (annual summer ANA convention) and Florida United Numismatists. Draw a 500-mile circle around Baltimore and you encompass probably 60% or more of all active coin buyers and sellers. If you have coins, tokens, medals or paper money for sale, contact us today and arrange for a position in what is sure to be a record-breaking event. The sooner you do this the better, as scarcities, rarities, and other items can be included in pre-sale publicity. The entire numismatic world will focus on the auction as it takes place. Beyond that, if you are planning your future travel, add the Expo to your personal events. Although bidding on the Internet is as easy as pie, attending a sale in person and also experiencing the other pleasures of the Expo is very desirable.
For the first time the Colonial Coin Collectors Club (C4) will be holding their annual meeting with the November Expo. In connection with this a special auction presentation is planned to feature colonial and early American issues. Give this some thought if you have interesting items to sell – perhaps a collection that is near completion, perhaps duplicates, perhaps other items of interest.
My best wishes to you until we meet again next week in this column.
