Stack's Bowers Galleries Sets World Record With Sale Of 1794 Silver Dollar For $10,016,875

A certified 1792 silver half disme graded MS-68 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) sold for $1,145,625, a 1793 Chain AMERICA large  cent graded MS-65 BN (PCGS) (CAC) fetched a strong $998,750, and a 1794 Liberty Cap Cent with the Head of 1793 graded MS-64 BN (PCGS) (CAC) soared to $881,250 among many other notable and record prices.

"Thanks to Martin Logies, chief architect of The Cardinal Collection, we were able to bring one of the most significant collections in all of numismatics to auction," Napolitano continued. "The event helped set a new standard of excellence in numismatics, and pays homage to the history, legacy and lore of American coin collecting."

In addition to The Cardinal Collection, the New York Americana Sale featured other United States coins of all denominations, including many rarities and finest known examples.
