SANTA ANA, CA. – Stack’s Bowers Galleries is thrilled to present an incredible lineup of United States coins in their Official Auction of the 2017 ANA World’s Fair of Money, August 1-5 in Denver, Colorado. Showcasing the High Rise Collection, the Magnolia Collection, and other important properties, this sale is poised to be the numismatic event of the summer, with highlights that include the finest known 1853-O No Arrows half dollar and the Lord St. Oswald-Norweb 1794 Flowing Hair dollar.

Session One on Tuesday, August 1 begins with an exciting selection of Numismatic Americana, from Betts medals to Indian Peace medals and more. A gorgeous silver striking of the Washington Voltaire medal, ex Ford Collection, in lot 24 is notable, as is an extremely rare plain edge variant of the iconic Roosevelt Inaugural medal by Saint-Gaudens in lot 34. Lots 67 through 73 showcase Numismatic Literature relating to the magnificent collection of Colonel E.H.R. Green, presented in partnership with Kolbe and Fanning Numismatic Booksellers. This group comprises inventories, appraisals, and photographic plates with associations to figures like M.L. Beistle, F.C.C. Boyd, Waldo Newcomer, and Morton Stack, making them essential for every dedicated numismatist or bibliophile.

A diverse offering of colonial issues is highlighted by a lovely AU-50 PCGS (1869) Lord Baltimore Shilling in lot 89. Federal coinage featuring large cents through quarters concludes the session.

U.S. Coins return to the auction block again on Thursday, August 3 with Session Three starting at 11:00 AM MT. A sextet of 1795 Flowing Hair half dollars kick off the bidding, followed by silver dollars, gold coinage, and a memorable assemblage of Hawaiian coins from the Rainbow Falls Collection.
