He was born Frederic Sackrider Remington in Canto, New York on October 4, 1861. He became an iconic artist known for his depictions of the The Old West in the form of sculpture, paintings, illustrations and writings. His fame grew to the point where other renowned Western artists of the time became known as members of the "School of Remington". Remington's focus as an artist was always on the people and animals of the West with landscape being secondary. His works are highly collectible and bring impressive prices in auction houses. "Coming Through The Rye" sold at Christie's New York for $11,223,500 which was a record setting price for a work of Remington's.
So, what do Augustus Caesar, Thomas Jefferson and Louis XIV have in common? They all enjoyed ancient coin collecting. Is that something you would enjoy doing? Believe it or not, most potential collectors shy away from ancient coins because they think coin prices will be too high. Not true! Like any other genre of coin collecting, there are many ways to go with your collection.. Ancient coins can be pricey but many are very affordable to collectors. I recommend only collecting graded (companies such as PCGS, NGC and ICG) ancient coins due to the fact that forgeries do exist and the novice collector may find it difficult to avoid them. Ancient Greek and Roman coins seem to be the most popular startup categories, due to the many coins available. Another helpful tip, read everything you can get your hands on concerning your collecting genre. Become an expert! Enjoy!
