“The recent Regency Sale saw a number of records for Legend Auctions: number of consignors, registered bidders, bidders participating live on our website, and in the room, it was standing room only. Because of Legend’s impressive list of international clients, many great coins are now on their way to homes outside of the States. The market for really great, important American rare coins is truly international!” LRCA founder, Laura Sperber commented after the sale.
