Hard Asset Management Announces Private Treaty Sale of Rare 1811 $5 Small 5 Capped Bust Half-Eagle

An extremely important rare coin has been placed with a collector from their highly sought-after 'Reserve Collection' of rarities

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - August 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Hard Asset Management, Inc. has recently sold 1811 $5 Small 5 Capped Bust Half-Eagle NGC MS65 from their Reserve Collection, which showcases several of the world's most important rare coins throughout history. This is a frosty and highly lustrous example with brilliant light yellow-gold surfaces.

The Capped Bust half eagle, which circulated from 1807 to 1812, was designed by engraver John Reich, an immigrant from Germany who Thomas Jefferson recommended to the mint that he be employed. The Capped Bust motif Reich created for the 1807 half eagle features a buxom Miss Liberty facing left, flanked by seven stars to the left and six to the right. Reich's Liberty has a distinctly European look, completely different from any previous depiction. The reverse design depicts an eagle with outstretched wings, perched on a palm branch and holding three arrows in its claws.

"This piece represents one of the early gold coins minted by the United States. It's not only tied for the finest known, we believe it's one of the most undervalued areas of U.S. numismatics," says Christian Briggs, Founder, and CEO of Hard Asset Management. "This is an extremely rare coin and the sharp details and frosty finish makes this one extremely special."

The vast majority of certified Uncirculated survivors, however, grade no finer than MS63. Almost 100,000 half eagles were struck in 1811; about half were the Large 5 variety, the other half, Small 5. In researching only six coins have been sold at public auction since 1993, making this coin extremely rare in "GEM".

CHICAGO - August 26, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

SVRN, Chicago multi-brand luxury retailer, announced that its West Loop storefront has now reopened with an extensive expansion and visionary remodel. Korean architecture firm WGNB, winner of Dezeen's Emerging Interior Design Studio of the Year 2021, oversaw the redesign, paying homage to SVRN CEO David Kim's Korean heritage and the story of perseverance that helped his family form a successful business venture. The Kim family fought through many battles to keep their business afloat, including their first store burning down and other rebuilds through the years due to looting and destruction. The remodel presents a purposeful mixture of synthetic and natural forms and materials while personifying the juxtaposition between balance and tension that has helped the Kim family business grow and evolve, eventually leading to the elevated and more conceptual SVRN. The new space elevates Chicago's fashion retail industry, presenting the previously unseen approach of experimentalism and intersectionality. The storefront is celebrating the remodel with a grand reopening party on Sept. 1, 2022.

"By embodying the Eastern philosophy, SVRN's lens would speak of collections that are not just the product of fashion and trends, but beyond garments," said Jonghwan Baek, creative director of WGNB. David Kim, CEO of SVRN, agrees with Baek's philosophy, stating, "WGNB was able to execute my family's story of perseverance through an artistic lens, where the buildout of our store not only elevates the Chicago retail environment, but portrays a strong message."

This announcement comes after 14 months of meticulous planning and design work, as well as a five-month closure period for SVRN. The storefront is excited to open and share this new experience with Chicago. 

SVRN Remodel Details: 

• WGNB's first-ever North American project executed in tangent with HNR and Helios. 

• Additional 1,200 square feet expansion. 

• Materials like stainless steel and Venetian plaster are used in synchrony with naturally occurring volcanic rocks, blackened wood and linen, conveying a juxtaposition of intersectionality that is core to SVRN's brand image.

About SVRN

SVRN is a luxury retail space in Chicago's West Loop that carries high-end labels such as Rick Owens, Maison Margiela, Jil Sander and more. This shop is the result of 40 years of business with a story that is unlike that of any other boutique in our city. More than that, it is the result of a South Korean family immigrating to the United States with next to nothing; no resources, wealth or connections. Now seen as one of the city's only experimental fashion storefronts, SVRN is a destination point in the United States for fashion enthusiasts both local and from abroad. With this remodel, SVRN aims to be a hub for self-expression through the intersection of fashion, art, design and culture. Feel free to access our website and Instagram. If further information is needed or you would like to attend our grand reopening event, please contact SVRN at [email protected] or +1 (630) 441-5635.

SHAOXING, China - August 26, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

The Fifth Chinese Shaoxing Opera (Yueju) Festival concluded with big success on August 20 in its birthplace, Shengzhou, a county-level city of Shaoxing, east China's Zhejiang Province, according to Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Zhejiang Provincial Government.

"Originated in Shengzhou, Yueju is the representative of Zhejiang culture, and Shaoxing and Shengzhou have profound foundation of Yueju. The Opera Festival has permanently landed in Shaoxing along with a glorious mission and great responsibility, said Chu Ziyu, an official with the Zhejiang Provincial government at the closing ceremony.

The closing ceremony started with the classic Shaoxing Opera "Butterfly Lovers". It vividly demonstrated the hundred-year development course of Yueju --- bold in exploration, brave in reform. 

The festival, with "Shaoxing Opera Festival, People's Festival" as its headline, ran from July 31 to Aug 20. The festival attracted the participation of 15 high-quality plays from all over the country, together with other Yueju activities such as Global Yueju Fanciers Carnival, Shaoxing Teenagers for Classic Yueju, and the 100 Plays in 100 Places as schools, communities, villages, and squares.

The Chinese Shaoxing Opera Festival is a national art festival held in Zhejiang every four years, started in 2006. It has played a great role in preserving Chinese traditional culture and promoting its development and prosperity.

"We will take the festival as a new starting point, continue the innovation in Yueju tradition and broaden the market. We will also strengthen the integration of Yueju and cultural tourism, nurture Yueju talents, and strive to build Shaoxing at a new and higher level," said Ding Ruxing, an official from Shaoxing city government. 

Shaoxing Opera, originated in Shengzhou county of Shaoxing, dubbed "the second national opera," following Peking Opera, is the most popular local opera. Shaoxing Opera is good at lyrics, mainly singing. It is beautiful in voice and primarily focuses on the theme of love stories. "Butterfly lovers", "A Dream of Red Mansions", "Mu Guiying Takes Command", etc., are well-known Shaoxing Opera repertoires both at home and abroad.
