Stack’s Bowers Galleries Announces Historic Sale of World-Class Collection of Massachusetts Silver, Colonial and Early Federal Coins, and Issues of the War Between the States

Collection of Massachusetts Silver To Be The Finest Ever Auctioned Highlighted by 1792 Birch Cent, 1792 Silver Center Cent, 1861 Confederate Half Dollar

For many decades, a private collector quietly assembled one of the finest collections of American colonial coins ever formed. Capably facilitated by legendary dealer Lester Merkin, and ably assisted by the Stack family, the collection grew to include over 120 pieces of Massachusetts silver, outpacing the Boyd-Ford Collection to become the most complete grouping ever offered.
