As most of you are probably aware, the past year has been quite an exciting one for Stacks Bowers Galleries, our team and our valued clients. The creation of the company has allowed us to offer you many new and improved opportunities for buying and selling exceptional U.S. and World coins and paper currency, such as the Stacks Bowers Galleries Official Auctions of the ANA Worlds Fair of Money and ANA/PNG Pre-show, multiple auctions in Hong Kong, as well as our continued tenure as the Official Auctioneer of the Whitman Coin and Collectibles Baltimore Expos three times a year.
