Holiday Season Gold
Welcome to the latest edition of my Market Report. We are in the midst of the Holiday Season, and I and everyone else at Stack’s wish you the best of happiness and cheer.
This is my favorite time of year for New York City. I live in New Hampshire, but I enjoy visiting the City on occasion. Nothing beats November and December, when the shops along Fifth Avenue sparkle with treasures, and there is a nice mood in the air. If your plans include a visit to New York City, be sure to stop by at Stack’s Gallery at 123 West 57th Street to say hello.
Gold continues to be in the forefront of activity at the New York Gallery, with transactions going on nonstop. Much of this is in bullion-type coins and bullion itself, although it is not at all unusual for someone to see a common date double eagle from the turn of the 20th century, admire it, and then set about building a collection.
Remarkably, although at first a set of twenties might seem daunting, the vast majority of the dates from the first (1850) to the last (1933), are quite affordable. Just a couple dozen do not fit that category. Tell you what: If you buy a double eagle from our New York Gallery, or through the mail, between now and the end of the year, I will autograph a copy of my Guide Book of Double Eagle Gold Coins and mail it to you. I think you’ll find it to be interesting to read and contain a lot of information. It certainly has been a good selling title for Whitman.
Again, I wish you and your family all the joys of the season.
