Demonstrating the continuing success of their Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auctions, Stack's Bowers Galleries is excited to announce that their October 2020 online offering of ancient and world coins, medals and paper money brought just over $1.22 million. The sale of 2,543 lots surpassed the presale estimate and featured an impressive sell through rate of 93.2%. This marks the first time that the firm has exceeded the $1 million threshold for their online-only auction program, and demonstrates the intense following the auction house has established for its wide-ranging numismatic material. Record highs are being set for both consignment and participation in these online auctions, and an increase in the number of these sales is likely to follow to meet the demand. (All prices include the buyer's premium.)
Stack's Bowers Galleries is thrilled to announce the opening of their new flagship gallery at 470 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Located just down the block from their historic West 57th Street storefront, this new gallery at 470 Park Avenue will serve as the East Coast's premier numismatic destination for a new generation of collectors.
Venerable auction firm Stack's Bowers and Ponterio continues to deliver world class sales of quality numismatic material and realize impressive prices, despite the challenging and unprecedented circumstances of the year 2020. The firm's incredible Hong Kong series of auctions clearly demonstrates the firm's success, as their colossal 10th anniversary auction in May 2020 shot past expectations and shattered records, despite a two-month postponement due to the global pandemic.
Stack's Bowers Galleries is excited to announce their upcoming Collectors Choice Online (CCO) auction of World and Ancient Coins, along with a great offering of World Paper Money. Building on their record-setting CCO auction of earlier this year, October's sale features 2,548 quality lots, 25% more than the previous offering. The sale will comprise three sessions and carry a high-end estimate totaling just short of $1.18 million. Despite the disruptions to normal life that have resulted from COVID-19, the coin market remains quite robust, with Stack's Bowers Galleries experiencing a surge in consignments as well as overall prices realized. The firm's Collectors Choice Online auctions offer reduced turnaround time for consignors as well as an easy and efficient experience for buyers seeking desirable and exciting material in a time when there is a dearth of coin shows and in-person auctions.
