“Our NYINC auction proved to be an excellent beginning to 2013,” said Richard Ponterio, executive vice president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries. “The numerous rarities included in the sale resulted in strong bidder participation in all sessions. Prices realized were solid across the spectrum of world and ancient coins and paper offerings, which speaks to the enthusiasm with which bidders greeted our first sale of the year.”

Interest surrounding The Robert O. Ebert Collection was high, as bidders and enthusiasts gathered to see and bid on the collection of ancient Roman coins, considered by many experts to be the most comprehensive assemblage of Hadrianic coinage to exist in private hands. World coins also had a strong showing and certainly demonstrated that collectors are paying attention to the ever-growing world coin market. Interest in The Demarte Collection – a selection of high quality and rare coins from Italy, Germany, Russia and other European nations – as well as Nicaraguan treasures from The Luis H. Flores also garnered special attention.

In all, the more than 4,000 lots of world and ancient coins along with paper money offerings generated over $7.3 million in total sales.
