CoinWeek Podcast #27: Q. David Bowers discusses the Famous Eliasberg Collection

What was it like to study the famous Eliasberg Collection before it went up for sale? Louis Eliasberg assembled the first-ever complete collection of U.S. coins by date and mintmark. His collection made national headlines and captured the imagination of generations of coin collectors. But there was only one coin dealer that he trusted to appraise and later sell his historic coin collection. That dealer was renowned numismatic author and auctioneer Q. David Bowers.

In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, noted numismatic author Q. David Bowers sits down with us to discuss his experience working with the Eliasberg family to appraise and later offer for sale this important collection.
