Auctions Preserving Market Interest

November 2, 2015

     Major auctions continue to lead the way for rarities, establishing new values for some very special coins. This past week Heritage Auctions hosted two sales in New York. First was the final portion of the Gardner Collection, Part IV, which realized $5,883,789, bringing the total of the four sales to well over $52 million. Next, Heritage offered one of their very extensive Signature Sales which bought another $11 million of total of prices realized. The grand total for the two sales was nearly $17 million. With so much going on the block, highlights could be found everywhere.

     Two of the more important coins in the Gardner Sale were Carson City Quarters. Keep in mind that this sale was made of duplicates and upgrades (coins that were left over after Mr. Gardner acquired higher grades), so expectations were not as high as the first three installments. The 1871 CC Seated Quarter in PCGS AU55 sold for $79,313. This is the highest certified AU coin and is also CAC approved. Another Seated Quarter rarity sold was the 1873 CC with Arrows in PCGS AU55 that brought $76,375. This is one of two certified in this grade with none higher in circulated grades. Below are a few more of the top rarities from the Gardner Collection Part IV.

     The second Heritage sale contained thousands of lots with many exceptional rarities finding new homes.

This is the single finest coin of this date and is one of the rarest dates in the highest grade of this series. Another premium quality coin from this series was the 1906 D in PCGS MS67 CAC which brought $39,950. This coin is also the finest known for the date.
