Rarities Still Commanding Strong Prices

May 20, 2019

     While most major auctions garner the support of dealers and the public attending numismatic events, Legend Rare Coin Auctions has managed to attract a tremendous following for their specialized sales without the benefit of a major convention. Legend’s Regency Auction 32 was conducted last week at the PCGS Members only show in New Orleans. This sale was highlighted by the visually stunning SUPERNOVA 1857 S $20 Gold recovered from the S.S. Central America, the finest known coin of this date with a PCGS MS67 label in addition to the CAC sticker. The fabulous toning alone was enough to create an awe-inspiring final bid of $282,000.

     One of the top attractions from this Stack’s Bowers sale will surely be the 1913 Liberty Head Nickel graded PCGS PR66 with the CAC approval and is the finest known coin. It comes to auction from the family of Dr. William Morton-Smith and is the very same coin previously owned by Louis Eliasberg, Sr. This was the first coin to achieve the million dollar price tag back in 1996 when it sold for $1,485,000 in a Bowers & Merena Sale. With just five coins total certified by PCGS and NGC, opportunities to acquire a rarity like this are rare indeed. This will certainly be the centerpiece of the Rarities Night session at this ANA event....
