Stack’s Bowers Galleries (SBG) has acquired Carter Numismatics Incorporated (CNI), the auction firm announced May 26. With the acquisition comes the addition of Jason Carter to Stack’s Bowers’ team of numismatic professionals. Carter joins SBG as executive vice president, and he, John Morgan and the CNI team will continue to operate out of the new SBG offices in Tulsa, Okla.
“Jason Carter is one of the most talented numismatists I have had the pleasure to work with,” said Greg Roberts, chief executive officer of SBG. “Perhaps more importantly, his work ethic, dedication and character are second to none, and we are thrilled to welcome him and the rest of the Carter Numismatics team to Stack’s Bowers Galleries.”
Carter founded Carter Numismatics in 1996. With a wide knowledge of U.S. coinage, Carter specializes in patterns, Territorials, high-end type, Bust, Seated and Barber rarities. He is also well-versed in all types of U.S. gold coins.
Carter was the youngest member ever admitted to the Professional Numismatists Guild, a non-profit group of the world’s top rare coin and paper money experts. He is an American Numismatic Association life member, a supporter of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets and a member of the Oklahoma Numismatic Association. Carter started his career at Heritage Auctions in 1993 prior to forming CNI.
John Morgan, a member of Carter Numismatics for more than 20 years, will join SBG as the director of wholesale numismatic sales.
“John has built an extensive network of customers over the last two decades, developing strong relationships with rare coin dealers across the country,” said Carter. “Joining Stack’s Bowers Galleries will allow him to expand his reach even further, while increasing the number of items he has available to sell.”
SBG President Brian Kendrella added, “The addition of Jason and the CNI team is particularly good news for our customers. As one of the most efficient and active traders in the business, Jason will be an active participant in our auctions and supply interesting and diverse collector quality items for our customers to add to their collections. Furthermore, our new Tulsa office expands our global footprint allowing us to better serve our clients in the South and Midwest.”
