Stack’s Bowers Galleries conducts live, Internet and specialized auctions of rare U.S. and world coins and currency and ancient coins, as well as direct sales through retail and wholesale channels. The company’s 80-year legacy includes the cataloging and sale of many of the most valuable United States coin and currency collections to ever cross an auction block — The John J. Ford, Jr., The Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collections, The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection, The Norweb Collection, The Cardinal and The Battle Born Collection — to name just a few. World coin and currency collections include The Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection of World Gold Coins, The Kroisos Collection, The Alicia and Sidney Belzberg Collection, The Wa She Wong Collection, The Guia Collection, The Thos. H. Law Collection, and The Robert O. Ebert Collection.

Topping off this amazing numismatic history is the inclusion of the world record for the highest price ever realized at auction for a rare coin, the 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar graded Specimen-66 (PCGS) that realized over $10 million, part of their sale of the famed Cardinal Collection.

The company is headquartered in Irvine, California, with offices in New York, Wolfeboro, Hong Kong, and Paris. Stack’s Bowers Galleries is an Official Auctioneer for several important numismatic conventions, including American Numismatic Association events, the New York International Numismatic Convention, the Professional Numismatists Guild New York Invitational, the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Spring, Summer and Winter Expos, and our April and August Hong Kong Auctions.

About The D. Brent Pogue Collection Auctions

Formed over the past five decades, the The D. Brent Pogue Collection was the most valuable collection of United States coins ever sold ans is considered as the finest collection of early American coinage assembled in our lifetime

The collection was started in the 1970s by D. Brent Pogue with the active participation and encouragement of his father, Dallas real estate developer A. Mack Pogue. Brent began the careful study of early American coins as a teenager and soon after, Mack and Brent were familiar faces in auction galleries whenever the most significant or finest known examples were crossing the block

Stack’s Bowers Auctions auctioned the D. Brent Pogue Collection in five installments over a two-year span from 2015 to 2017.

Be sure to view the videos and articles posted in the Stack’s Bowers CoinWeek Archives below for a full showing and analysis of the Pogue Collection
