Stack’s Bowers and Sotheby’s to Make Unprecedented Offering of Rarities as Part of IV of the D. Brent Pogue Collection

On May 24, 2016, in cooperation with Sotheby’s at Sotheby’s International Headquarters in New York City, Stack’s Bowers Galleries will offer not only the finest known 1804 silver dollar, but also the rare and legendary 1822 half eagle. Although both were once included in the famous Virgil M. Brand Collection, never before in auction history have these two rarities appeared at auction together. And, these two masterpieces will be accompanied by a similarly unparalleled group of some of the finest and rarest coins produced in the United States in the first part of the 19th century.

The D. Brent Pogue Collection, after just three sales, has become the most valuable numismatic collection ever sold. With total auction prices realized of $68,569,181 the Pogue Collection has now passed both the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection ($63,052,197) and the Eric P. Newman Collection ($61,880,912). In addition, individual coins in the collection have set price records as well. It is unlikely that there will ever be another collection to compare with this extraordinary cabinet.
