Stack’s Bowers Galleries presents The E. Horatio Morgan Collection

In their Official Auction at the ANA World’s Fair of Money®

Rosemont, Illinois • August 13-16, 2019

The E. Horatio Morgan Collection was built primarily in the late 1980s and early 1990s, by a connoisseur who focused on select type coins, major rarities, silver dollars and especially half dollars and dimes from the 1790s to the 1890s. He also sought out patterns of varied denominations—a cabinet exhibiting diversity and quantity not seen for years.

E. Horatio Morgan also found numismatic and financial value in classic numismatic rarities, which were coming to market with great regularity in the most fruitful period of his collecting. Among the first major rarities he acquired is one of fewer than 20 known 1876-CC twenty cent pieces, recently graded MS-65 by PCGS. Soon a er, an 1894-S Barber dime—the Dr. Jerry Buss specimen—entered the Morgan cabinet, a coin that remained unholdered for 31 years before it was recently graded Branch Mint Proof-63 by PCGS.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is pleased to present these two spectacular rarities in Rarities Night of our Official Auction at the ANA World’s Fair of Money on August 15, 2019. Also featured in the August sale will be the incomparable collection of patterns gathered by E. Horatio Morgan. Further offerings from this collection will be included in our November 2019 Baltimore Expo auction.
