Celebrating Boss’s Day in 2013

After precious Nicole left us to move to Houston, TX in early July, I (Maya), knew that most likely, I would be the only one left here at Southgate to continue on the tradition of Boss’s Day. Since I started working at the store (in 2007), Boss’s Day has always been one of those “forgotten” celebrations.

Stack’s Bowers Makes Amends - Credits Rusty Goe for His Work on Battle Born Auction Catalog

In what looked like a major oversight, Stack’s Bowers Galleries, in its January 24, 2013 Americana auction catalog, omitted Rusty Goe’s name from the team of catalogers that created the company’s historic Battle Born auction catalog in 2012. Stack’s Bowers also failed to cite Rusty Goe for the commentary of his its cataloger used in the description of the 1876-CC twenty-cent piece in the 2013 Americana catalog.
