Covid-19 Virus Forces Relocation of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles June Expo

Author: Stack's Bowers Galleries / April 23, 2020

Santa Ana, CA (April 23, 2020) – Stack’s
Bowers Galleries’ June 2020 Auction has been relocated from the Baltimore
Convention Center to their Santa Ana, California home office. Lot viewing for
the auction will be held by appointment at the California office starting June
8.

“As
the world closely monitors the impact of the Covid-19 virus and the resulting
cancellation of numerous public events, we have made the strategic decision to
host our June auction in our home offices in the same manner as we recently conducted
our record setting March event,” said Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s
Bowers Galleries. He continued: “Our superb online bidding software will once
again carry the load, as is the norm in today’s auction world. Numismatic sales
have remained strong and our March sale exceeded presale estimates, which were
determined well before recent economic difficulties. With over $38 million in numismatic items sold in our March auctions,
many at new world record prices, Stack’s Bowers Galleries has demonstrated a superior
ability to connect bidders with desirable coins and achieve tremendous prices
realized for our consignors, even in the face of unanticipated global
uncertainty.”

Showcased in June
will be the Q. David Bowers Collection of Vermont Coppers, a highly significant
offering, remarkable both for the exceptional quality of individual pieces and
the presence of numerous rare varieties. Also featured will be a stunning
collection of gold coins from The Francesca Collection, a cabinet that is
coming to market after being in private hands for nearly 50 years. In addition,
we will have a beautiful selection of silver coinage from The Dazzling Rarities
Collection that will delight collectors in many series.

Galleries is still accepting consignments for the June 2020 Auction and
