Honorable Mention: Among the other numerous impressive results were more than 20 lots that brought six-figure prices. We are exceptionally pleased to announce a personal house record for an Islamic coin, as our very rare offering of a gold Dinar of Shajar al-Durr, the “Queen of the Muslims,” realized a stunning $138,000. This great result affirms once again that Stack’s Bowers Galleries achieves quality results in every aspect of the numismatic spectrum.
