Highlighted by a $9.6 million Stack’s auction, the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Philadelphia Expo Sept. 30-Oct. 2 was called a success by Whitman Expo General Manager David Crenshaw.
Chief Mint Engraver John Mercanti attended and told the story of discovering the original Saint-Gaudens coin plasters.
Actors Steven Edenbo and Ian Rose of the American Historical Theatre brought Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton to life.
