On the following day, the CAL quarter eagles were sent to Secretary Marcy; numismatic history had been made. As counterfeits exist of the CAL coinage, it needs to be mentioned that the letters were applied with a single punch, not three different ones. The letters must precisely match known genuine ...
For collectors of South American coins attending the New York International Numismatic Convention, Stack's Bowers provided not-to-be-missed occasions. The firm offered the once-in-a-lifetime Eldorado Collection of Colombian and Ecuadorian Coins. “Superb,” “extraordinary,” “fabulous” … none of the ...
There is no doubt that the 1892 and 1893 Columbian Exposition commemorative half dollar has a unique place in numismatic history. Room exists for discussion on its title as the first United States commemorative coin. Certainly the 1848 “CAL” quarter eagle was a commemorative, but it did not follow the ...
Is there some movement in the scarce- to rare-date segment of the coin hobby? Let's get the magnifying glass out to see. There are some isolated bright spots due primarily to recent auction activity, but the coins that are realizing these optimistic prices are coins that have been off the market for years.

Last fall, the Royal Bank of Scotland released its new £10 note. The note's right face is dominated by a three-quarter profile of Mary Somerville.

As with everything in the world, nothing remains the same. It was evident to those of us in the coin business that it had grown quite successfully in the fifties.

When I show it to someone, the response is usually, “I've never seen this coin!” No kidding. This “Viewpoint” was written by Dennis Ranski a collector from Dearborn, Mich.

Those who hold themselves out to serve the public as coin dealers, either in stores, at shows, online, or however, have varying degrees of numismatic knowledge. Some are deeply experienced numismatists across a broad range of niches. Others are exceptionally knowledgeable on a narrow category of ...
We are in a buyer's market, a bull buyer's market. Many dealers will disagree since their retail sales volumes are down. One dealer attending the February show in Long Beach was thrilled he had a retail client who spent $20,000, while wholesale transactions surged. The U.S. Mint reported gold American ...
Collectors of Lincoln cents might feel as if they are flying under the radar of Chinese counterfeiters. However, there is more than one way to fake a rarity. Long before China got into the fakery business, added mintmarks were the scourge of the numismatic hobby. They apparently still are as Numismatic ...
Goldbergs' NYINC catalog was jam-packed with high-grade British rarities. Among them, one coin stood out: a 1663 silver pattern crown by Thomas Simon (S-3354A; ESC-429 (-72); KM-PnB33). Great British rarity: Thomas Simon's Petition crown that realized $649,000 at Goldbergs' NYINC sale in January.

In general, currency prices seem a bit low, but some are a bit high, so I am reluctant to make a general prediction for the near future. The next big price indicator will be at the Central States show in late April. I got lucky at the FUN auction, however, and purchased a 1935A $1 S Star experimental at about ...
There was even an organization of former assay commissioners which met each year at the annual American Numismatic Association convention.

From fiscal year 2016 to 2017, numismatic sales dropped just 6.1 percent measured by units and 6.2 percent measured by revenue.

Original bags of 1880-O Morgan dollars did not always contain Mint State coins, resulting in a limited supply of top-grade examples left for collectors on the market today.

The most widely used graders are those at Professional Coin Grading Service, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and at ANACS. There are more grading services, some of whom are quite good and simply lack recognition due to a lack of marketing. A few grading operations can politely be called optimistic.
The numismatic origin story for the $5 National hasn't changed much since I wrote the first article. However, purged from that account is the Sotheby connection.
