P. Scott Rubin submitted this query, just under the wire for inclusion in tonight's issue.
The April, 1966 issue of Coinage magazine contained a photo story by Larry Stevens highlighting an Icon in the field of coin collecting in the United States. Titled COIN MECCA IN MANHATTAN included 21 photos of 123 West 57th Street, New York City home of Stack’s Rare Coin and Coin Galleries.
At the time Stack’s had been in the coin auction field for just over thirty years, they have just celebrated their 75th anniversary.
The question is, who are the people of Stack’s in 1966? Some we all know, some names sound familiar and some I have never heard of.
So I pose this question to Harvey Stack to fill in the answers - I know he reads the E-sylum.
1. Joseph Petryk of the Burns Agency (security guard)
2. Harvey W. Nelson
3. George Weyr
4. Carol Bica
5. Harvey G. Stack (you look so young)
6. Lilo Strub
7. Henry G. Smith
8. Norman Stack (yes we all remember Norman)
9. Robert M. Jenove (identified as a dealer of Franklin Square, NY
10. Lawrence Maran family with son Andrew (custumers)
