Legend Rare Coin Auctions Market Report–September 15, 2017

The September Premier Session Internet Only Auction closed last night. The results were mixed, to be expected based on what we had in the offering. We assure you that the October Premier Session will have a smaller, but more high power selection of coins.


Laura and Greg are in the final stages of cataloging the October Regency Auction. The sale will contain around 550 lots, our biggest offering of hand selected coins yet! With each group of coins crossing our desks we are amazed with the quality. Whether part of a collection, or single coin consignment, there are many highlights. Currently Laura is writing up the 1892 $2.50 in PCGS MS67 CAC from the D.W. Collection. Ever since this coin came in, she has marveled at its outstanding quality. Both Greg and Laura have marveled at the Martha Washington Patterns, their quality and rarity are great. Greg has seen so many neat and interesting coins, including the FINEST KNOWN 1893-S Morgan dollar. One of the coins that sticks out for him, which is not a major rarity or high value item is the beautifully toned 1877-CC half dollar in PCGS MS65+ CAC. It has such a great look, and it should see very intense bidding. We are finalizing the order of sale this weekend and the sale is planned to be posted for bidding by the time we post our Market Report next week.


If you are not planning on coming to the Philadelphia PCGS Members Only Show, we will be conducting a special lot viewing in California on Friday, October 13 in conjunction with the PCGS “Public Friday.” Greg Cohen will be there to show lots and accept consignments for any upcoming auction sale. If So-Cal is more convenient for you to view lots, contact us today.


Consignments are beginning to trickle in for the December Regency Auction. A trio of beautifully toned silver dollars off the market since Superior’s September 1986 auction are just freshly graded by PCGS and consigned. We are accepting consignments for that sale through the November Baltimore show, but the sooner we have your coins the better. Contact Julie Abrams (julie@legendauctions.com or 845-430-4378) or Greg Cohen (greg@legendauctions.com or 732-935-1168).
