Excitement was the buzzword at the annual ANA Worlds Fair of Money held last week in Rosemont, Illinois, a familiar and popular venue for collectors and dealers alike. Adding to the excitement of this annual summer event were two official auction sales of U.S. coins held by Stacks Bowers Galleries. The companys ever-popular Rarities Night session was held August 13 and was a resounding success. Its 306 premium lots realized over $6.45 million, with fierce bidding activity throughout the entire session. The second of the two sales comprised two sessions and along with the U.S. currency auction and world coins and currency auction, realized over $14 million.
