The Windy City Collection of High Denomination Notes

Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries is
featuring the Windy City Collection of high denomination notes in our August
2020 auction?

The Windy City Collection of high
denomination notes, a culmination
of three generations of currency enthusiasts, had a humble beginning before the
start of World War I.  The goal of each generation was to improve upon the
rarity and quality of the prior generation’s holdings.  Notes were bought
and sold over the century, always working to make the collection better. Our
consignor remembers what a treat it was when his father brought him and his
sibling to the bank vault (where the notes were always kept). Twice a year they
would peruse and scour over the collection in the vault viewing room. 

The new millennium and the transition of
the collection from the second to the third generation
also coincided with the advent of third-party grading that allowed collectors
to have their paper money certified. The Windy City Collection resulted from
decades of patience and fortitude and now contains some of the finest $500 and
$1000 Federal Reserve Notes known. Having met his ultimate collecting goals,
the consignor now brings it to auction so that future collecting generations can
enjoy owning and preserving these timeless pieces.

This collection will cross the block on August 5, 2020
beginning at 3:00PM PDT at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. In addition to
viewing the collection online now here:
you can make an appointment to view either in our California headquarters from
