DAVE BOWERS ON THE ANR-STACK'S MERGER

Dave Bowers writes: "Here are some of my thoughts concerning
the American Numismatic Rarities-Stack’s merger.

The new entity is operating under the Stack’s banner in New York
City and as Stack’s Rarities in other areas, as in Wolfeboro.
All of the American Numismatic Rarities and Stack’s staff is being
merged into the new entity.  Chris Karstedt and I, equity partners
in ANR, are now equity partners in Stack’s.  I never dreamed of
this way back in 1955 when I first went into Stack’s store at 123
West 57th Street (same location as today) and bought my first coin
over the counter, a 1913 Proof Barber half dollar for $25.  Those
were the days!  Since that time I have done much business with
Stack’s and its principals, and have been a bidder in many of their
auction sales.  In the late 1950s I was a regular attendee at
almost every auction event.

Our Numismatic Sun, a collectors’ favorite, will continue.  In fact,
I am working on the next issue.  Also our new Paper Money Review,
which had a recent debut to good notices, will be continued as well.
We’ll be combining catalogue production as appropriate and continuing
to provide the collecting community the finest in numismatic
descriptions, historical data, and photography.

It is expected that the combination will produce even finer outreach
to the traditional numismatic community, new clients as well as old.
We will all continue our focus on promoting the traditions and joys
of numismatics.  This, of course, has been a personal interest of
mine since day one.  My business address will be the current ANR
address:  “Q. David Bowers, PO Box 1804, Wolfeboro NH 03894.”  My
personal private e-mail will remain the same, and numismatists
are invited to use it:  qdbarchive@metrocast.net."
