Stack's Bowers recently opened a new location in Boston. The local CBS affiliate ran a segment about it earlier this month.
Stack's Bowers Galleries has been dealing in rare coins and currency for 90 years and now they have a shop in Boston.
Stanley Chu is the manager of the branch. He got his love for coins and currency while working in his parents' bakery in the city.
"My job was to roll up coins to prepare for the next day's deposit for the store and anything that was interesting, I got to keep, like wheat back pennies, silver coins," he told WBZ-TV.
His interest has never stopped.
In our visit to the gallery, he gave us a little show and tell, including a close up look at some rare cash.
"There are a lot of people looking for these $500 and $1,000 bills. We have in house auctions just on $500 and $1,000 bills," Chu said.
