Ex Lord St. Oswald 1794 Cent Attracts Premium Bids

July 30, 2018

     Legend Rare Coin Auctions reported its largest single day auction at their 27th Regency Sale in conjunction with the PCGS Member Show in Las Vegas last week. The top selling lot in this sale was the Ex Lord St. Oswald 1794 Head of 1794 Large Cent in PCGS MS66+ Brown CAC; it realized $246,750, quite a premium bid. This is 1 of 3 coins certified in MS66+ but the CAC approval makes it unique at this level. There is one coin certified higher, an MS67 Red & Brown. Our next online prices update will have the adjusted values for the MS66+; the NumisMedia Plus+ value will be current at $185,000 and the CAC at $200,000.
