Stack’s Bowers Galleries realized an impressive $13,892,475 over eight U.S. and world sessions conducted March 29-April 2, 2011, continuing its lengthy tenure as the only official auctioneer of the Whitman Coin and Collectibles Baltimore Expo. The entire auction saw 7,690 lots cross the block, including nearly 4,250 lots of U.S. coins and exonumia, 850+ lots of U.S. currency and 2600 world and ancient coin lots.

“Our March 2011 Baltimore Auction resulted in keen bidder interest and strong prices realized for a wide variety of U.S. coin and currency lots,” noted Chris Napolitano, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries. “We registered more bidders for this sale than ever before, our lot viewing sessions were completely full from start to finish, and competition between bidders was exceptionally sharp in all sessions. For U.S. coinage, many premium quality ‘old holder’ coins brought well over bid, especially those pieces in the fabulous Denny Kemp and Dr. Albert R. Frederick, Jr. collections. Nineteenth century currency gold rarities also made a strong showing, as did a pair of beautiful Panama-Pacific $50 gold commemoratives acquired at the Exposition in 1915 and passed down through the same family before being offered in this sale.”

And, according to Matt Quinn, director of currency auctions for Stack’s Bowers Galleries, “Currency prices realized in our March 2011 Baltimore Auction were led by a run of large size Legal Tender Notes from the 1860s, with obsolete notes and national bank notes also garnering much attention.”

Rick Ponterio, executive vice president commented on the world and ancient coin sales as follows: “The first session of our foreign offerings highlighted Mexican coins, with prices realized for many pieces exceeding our expectations after a strong showing from bidders in both Mexico and the United States. We also noted a lot of bidding activity on Panamanian paper money, which resulted in especially strong prices for those lots.”
