The Finest Collections are Built Through a Trusted Relationship Between Advisor and Client
For more than 85 years, Stack’s Bowers Galleries (“SBG”) has been committed to personally assisting our clients as they built some of the finest coin and paper money cabinets in the world. In 1942 we brokered the sale of the impressive John Clapp Collection to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., where it became the basis for the only complete collection of United States coins ever built. From the early 1950s through his death in 1966, Stack’s was instrumental in acquiring the gold coins that comprised the incomparable Josiah K. Lilly Collection, which is now an integral part of the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. In addition, we were proud to assist such famous numismatists as Amon Carter, John J. Ford, Harry Bass and Brent Pogue as they acquired their coins, and were just as proud when those collections came back to us to present at auction. In the 21st century we continue to advise private clients building collections valued into the millions and tens of millions of dollars, including providing exclusive and confidential advice to the holder of the most valuable currency collection.
We invite you to be among the discerning collectors who have built their collections by reaping the benefits of our longstanding expertise and resources we provide as a global auction house.
