The Francesca Collection by Stack’s Bowers Galleries ……
The Francesca Collection encompasses nearly every United States gold coin series from the early Capped Bust type through Private and Territorial issues, including Mint State and Choice Proof examples of even the most challenging types. Also featured are select rarities from the silver denominations such as Liberty Seated quarters, Morgan dollars, and several Pattern issues.

About the Francesca Colelction of US Gold Coins
The gentleman who assembled this cabinet was a decorated veteran of World War II, having served his country in the United States Air Force. A humble and private man, his award medals and valorous service records were only discovered after his death. His two greatest loves were said to be his family and his collection, in that order. He was an adored father who encouraged his children to show kindness and live honorably. He demonstrated a similar care and passion in his collecting, the efforts of which can be found throughout the following pages.
Many coins in the Francesca Collection were acquired from Stack’s and our other predecessor firms, and we are thrilled to present them once again to a new generation of collectors. Highlights include a Gem Proof 1897 $2.50, Mint State half eagles from 1811, 1813, and 1814/3, an Uncirculated 1797 Heraldic Eagle $10, and a Choice Proof 1883 $10. These US gold coins have been certified just recently by PCGS and NGC and are bound to draw considerable attention from a wide variety of specialists.
