January 19, 2018--Entering Auction Week!

Posted by on 19 January 2018

It is AUCTION WEEK! With six days left to bid in the Regency Auction and nine days to bid in the January 2018 Premier Sessions Internet Only Auction. Between the two sales, we have 461 HIGH QUALITY and HAND SELECTED rare coins that collectors of all budget levels will find something of interest. From early copper, high grade 18th and 19th century type coins in silver, toned and SUPERB Morgan dollars, rare date gold, as well as affordable classic commemoratives. There are many great opportunities in these sales!

In the Regency Auction, we are proud to offer the 1797 half cent in PCGS MS66 BN CAC; 1793 Wreath Cent in PCGS MS64+ BN CAC; 1918/7-D Buffalo nickel in PCGS MS65+ CAC; 1920 Saint Gaudens double eagle in PCGS MS65; and 1836 J-65 Gobrect Dollar Restrike in PCGS PR64+ CAC are all great highlight coins, worthy of the finest cabinets being formed today! But mixed among the six-figure rarities, are the Ipswich Collection of three cent silvers and the Edmund Family Trust collection of classic commemoratives, which are fresh to the market and offer collectors core groups of these two series, with coins affordable to essentially every collector. Other great collector coins include circulated examples of key date issues, like a choice AU 1916-D dime, a 1796 quarter in PCGS VG8, a 1916 Standing quarter in PCGS AU58 CAC, a PCGS XF45 1815/2 half dollar, and a 1889-CC dollar in PCGS AU58.   Get your bids in A.S.A.P.


In the first Premier Session of 2018, there are a number of fresh coins, like a 1909-S Indian Head cent in PCGS MS65 RD CAC, a GEM 1868 Proof quarter, PCGS PR66; a neat run of Proof Barber quarters from 1904 to 1906; nice CHOICE AU Draped and Capped Bust half dollars; a few collector grade VF and XF Bust dollars, all graded by PCGS; a GEM AU58 1850-O dollar;  and the EXTREMELY RARE 1861 Judd-281 pattern $2.50 struck in silver, which we believe is ex Woodin, Boyd, Newcomber, and Farouk. There may only be 112 lots, but each one is hand selected for quality, rarity, eye appeal, and desirability. A huge percentage of these are CAC-approved, in fact 76 of the 112 lots are CAC-approved, with one of them being a GOLD sticker.


Macroeconomic factors are starting to creep into the rare coin market. As the stock market continues its drive into record territory, we have seen a number of investors shift from stocks and other financial instruments into tangible or hard assets. Gold has been quietly moving up, and this does eventually trickle into the rare coin market. At the same time, the supply of quality coins being offered to collectors (either in the auction market or from retail dealers) is ever shrinking. When great coins are sold, they disappear into the black hole of collectors, where they remain for many years. We will see prices go up, especially as more of these investors move assets from stocks into coins. Take our word for it, this has already begun to happen, and we see it continuing well into at least the next year. Longer term, depending on how the new tax plan works out, more money in people’s hands will perhaps bring collectors who have been sitting on the sidelines back in to the market, and at that point, unless some more big collections get sold, the huge lack of supply will drive prices further up. Now, before the effects of these macroeconomic factors become more wide spread, is the time to add coins to your collections.


The team is flying to Las Vegas on Tuesday, so it is imperative to get your phone bid requests, extended payment requests in NOW. We will be happy to work with you, we just need to know ahead of time. You can call us at 732-935-1168 or email at [email protected].

Legend Rare Coin Auctions Market Report

Posted by on 12 January 2018

Now that we are back in the office for a week digesting the results of the FUN show, we can tell you the market is starved for great coins. Because there is no large supply of fresh, high end coins, collectors are paying strong premiums for the few coins that do pop up. We can tell you that our 349 lot Regency Auction is full of great coins, especially high end three cent silvers, early type coins and better gold. If you have not yet taken a look at the lots, there are two weeks left. There are spectacular coins to be had coins that will fit any collector’s set.


This is LAST CALL for any consignments for the January Sessions sale. Our photographer will be in on Monday, January 15. If your coins can be in our office by noon Monday, we will be able to fit your coins into the sale. At this point, we have 100 hand selected coins, featuring a great selection of Morgan and Peace dollars that really do stand out. Bidding will start on January 18.


At the recent FUN show, we started getting some great coins for our Regency Auction 26 in May being held in New Orleans. While we are two months away from the consignment deadline there is strong demand for the limited space in our sale. Consign your coins early to ensure your spot in our sale. Whether you have one rarity, a handful of duplicates, or an entire collection, contact us now to consign. Julie Abrams and Greg Cohen will work with you from start to finish—from the first phone call or email to consignment settlement. As we have proven time and again, our boutique style auctions bring out the big buyers and get you the strongest prices—look what we did for Bob Simpson, Phil Flannagan, The Coronet Collection, David Hall, and many other important consignors since we started in 2012. Let us show you what we can do for you!

This is the LRCA FUN Show Market Report. What we are reporting here is from our experience as of Friday morning. Since the show has over a full day left we can only expect that there will be more action, which we will talk about next week.

The market is really starting to show real momentum growing, especially for NICE coins. There were very few in the massive FUN auction or on the bourse floor, which will translate to strong prices in our upcoming Regency Auction 25. Anyone who had nice coins, our sister firm—Legend Numismatics, for instance had a good show. Many of the dealers we have spoken to have had good shows so far. Retail traffic at the show was strong, with many collectors there to do business. If the FUN show is a barometer of the rare coin market in the coming months, we are very optimistic for a strong start to 2018.

Our Regency Auction 25 has garnered a lot of attention already, even though it is still 3 weeks away. Our table had a steady stream of collectors and dealers viewing the highlights that we brought. Bidding momentum continues at pace, and we are excited for our special lot viewing next Friday at the New York International Numismatic Convention. Not only will this give our northeast collectors a chance to view lots, and introduce Legend Rare Coin Auctions to another  group of collectors that may not focus on U.S. coins---yet. With the auction 20 days out, now is optimal time to contact us with any special requests: mail inspection, phone bidding, or special payment terms. Please do not wait until the week of the sale to discuss these with us.

LAST CALL FOR January Premier Sessions Internet Auction consignments! The sale will be highlighted by a very cool group of fresh to the market toned Morgan dollars from a well-known specialist collector who is selling some of his duplicate holdings. There are, as always, some great proof type coins and high end coins (including a $1 1850-O PCGS AU58 CAC)  already consigned. If you have any coins you are thinking about consigning, please contact us ASAP, as we are running out of time. The sale goes live on January 18 and closes the 28th. We will discuss specific highlights next week—stay tuned.

Happy New Year!

Posted by on 29 December 2017

First we would like to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. For us, 2018 began last Friday, when we posted the 25th Regency Auction for bidding. In the week since we opened the sale, we have had very active bidding, with total bids exceeding $1.5 million (and that is during a time when many people are away for their Christmas vacations). If you have not yet checked out the sale, take a look this weekend. Resolve in the New Year to bid on some great coins—and Regency Auction 25 has a lot to bid on!


The 349 lot auction sale starts with the Ipswich Collection of 3CS, and there are a bunch of coins in that set that we really love and have a problem putting down! Lot 11, the 1859 in PCGS MS66+ CAC; lot 21 the 1867 in PCGS MS67 CAC; and lot 25, the 1850 Judd-125 pattern 3CS in PCGS PR64+ CAC are favorites. Early copper is very well represented with a SUPERB 1797 half cent and a near-GEM 1793 Wreath cent among the exceptional pieces that stand out (lots 28 and 35). Lot 49 is a very Choice PR 1856 Flying Eagle cent, the first regular issue small cent. Starting with lot 66 is a nice little run of Matte Proof Lincoln cents. Lots 99 and 100 are dreams for the most advanced of Buffalo nickels, a 16 DDO in PCGS MS64 CAC and a 18/7-D in 65+ PCGS/CAC. Half dime collectors can sink their teeth into GEM examples of the 1795 and 1796/5 (lots 115 and 116). Lot 181 is sure to impress any Bust half collector, featuring an 1812 in PCGS MS65+ CAC and 188 is a very Choice Mint State 1836 Reeded Edge half dollar. Looking for a GEM 1921 half dollar?—take a look at lot 196. Toned Morgan and Peace dollars have their own little section, beginning at lot 215 and ending at 238—a smaller selection, but these are spectacular and fresh, including duplicates from the Aurora Borealis Collection. Superb Proof Morgans are represented in particular by lot 249 an 1890 in PCGS PR68 DCAM and Lot 252, the ex Jack Lee 1902 in PCGS PR67+ CAC. There is  nice grouping of gold coins, highlighted by a pair of PR67 DCAM quarter eagles from 1893 and 1900, a GEM 1802/1 $5, a nearly perfect 1905 $5 in PCGS MS67+ CAC the finest known. A short date run of double eagles from the S.S. Central America are fascinating relics of that famous shipwreck, and lot 303 is the grand highlight of the gold offering, the tied for finest graded and arguably the finest known 1920 Saint Gaudens, graded PCGS MS65. Concluding the sale is a small section of commemoratives, mainly from the Edmund Family Trust, and a small presentation of patterns, including the ultra rare, and well pedigreed 1836 Gobrect dollar, Judd-65 in PCGS PR64+ CAC. Between these highlights are many great collector oriented examples of better date Bust, Seated, and 20th Century Key date issues. There really will be something for everyone.


If you do find something you want to bid on, and want to get a look at it in hand, we will have select highlights at the FUN show (TABLES 624 and 626), as well as a special lot viewing on Friday, January 12 at the Grand Hyatt, NY in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic Convention. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us, at [email protected] or call 732-935-1168.


Perhaps your New Year’s Resolutions involve paring down your collection. Whether you have one coin, a group of duplicates, or an entire collection, let Legend Rare Coin Auctions present your treasures in one of our upcoming auctions. With monthly Premier Sessions Internet Auctions and four more Regency Auctions scheduled in 2018 (May, July, September, and November), we have venues that will are very well suited to maximizing your results. Experience the Legend difference! We will not overload our sales with duplicates, we hand select many consignments, so your coins will not be lost among thousands of lot of lower-quality and uninteresting coins. Our terms are very competitive; contact either Julie Abrams at 845-430-4378 ([email protected]) or Greg Cohen at 732-935-1168 ([email protected]).


Finally, we wish to thank you for making 2017 a great year and we look forward to doing much more business with you in 2018.

Legend Rare Coin Auctions' Market Report-- December 1, 2017

Posted by on 1 December 2017

Welcome to December! A very busy month awaits!


First up, with just under two weeks, is our Regency Auction XXIV, being held on Thursday, December 14 in Las Vegas in conjunction with the PCGS Members Show at Caesars. Hundreds of collectors have already registered to bid, and we are seeing strong bidding. Clearly the recent highs in the stock market and world record prices in other areas of collectibles and art (including a fresh record of over $450 million for a single painting!) has instilled confidence and the realization that in comparison, many areas of numismatics are truly undervalued and underappreciated. With many new bidders, as well as folks who have not bid in auction in quite some time, it looks like money is starting to come back into the numismatic market. While in other auctions, you will have to wade through hundreds (or thousands) of subpar material to find one or two items of interest, Legend Auctions has already done that for you, by vetting each and every consignment that is presented for our auctions, ensuring that you will love the coins you buy from us. We are having a special lot viewing in New York City on December 6. Contact us for more information! ALSO, a VERY IMPORTANT NOTE. Catalogs are in the mail. In the printing process, there was a small issue, and our printer is working to get them out ASAP, in the meantime, if you want to read through the catalog, our digital version is up on the web.


Our December Premier Session Auction is now closed for consignments and the sale will be posted online on December 11. It will feature over 140 lots, including the final selections from JK’s Mirror Collection and many large lots. This sale closes for bidding on Sunday, December 17, starting at 10pm east coast time. We will have more information about highlights next week and we think you will certainly enjoy bidding on these lots coming up.


LAST CALL for January’s Regency Auction 25! Space is running low now. We have some great coins already consigned, including a small group of MONSTER toned dollars (each PCGS/CAC and would have found themselves very comfortable with the Northern Lights coins had they been on the market when that record shattering collection was being assembled). Also is a VERY RARE $20 1920 PCGS MS65 (the second one made after 35+ years of operations at PCGS). Key date and highly desirable type coins have also been consigned, and we will be posting some highlights in the coming week or so. Be sure to take a look. If you have any coins you are thinking about consigning, be sure to tell us before December 8, and we need the coins in house no later than December 14 (BUT the earlier the better!). LRCA will present your prized coins to their finest advantage at our boutique venue, expertly written up, and portrayed by the best photography in the business. We offer very competitive rates and generous terms on cash advances. Contact us today to be WOW’D by what we can do for you!

Last call for bidding!!! Our November Premier Session Internet Only Auction closes this SUNDAY, November 12 beginning at 10pm. There is still some time to view lots at our table, 643 at the Baltimore Expo-many collectors already have done so. We expect strong bidding on the 119 hand selected lots. There are a number of fresh to the market 2C pieces and silver dollars that are worthy of inclusion in the finest cabinets. This is not a slapped together typical internet auction, check it out. Good luck bidding!

The Baltimore Expo. Shows are slowing down—the internet has changed the game so much. We miss the days where collectors would come up and chat and after talking a while, they would consign to the auction. This just does not happen as much anymore. We are pleased with the few coins that we picked up at the show for the Regency Auction XXIV. After seeing the amazing results of the Crow River Collection, two highlights from the show we picked are a $5 1909-S PCGS MS64+ CAC  and a $10 1930-S PCGS MS64+ CAC. The Regency Auction XXIV is now CLOSED for consignments. We will have a full listing of the sale up for viewing next week.

Upcoming auctions. We are still accepting consignments for the December Premier Sessions Internet Only Auction as well as the January Regency Auction XXV. Contact us today to consign!

“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.

Julie Abrams, president of LRCA added, “Sale in and sale out, Legend Auctions’ impressive results prove that our boutique style and venue are best for presenting hand-selected, premium quality, high end coins to collectors. With the conclusion of our 23rd Regency Auction, we are very proud of our accomplishments; we may not be the biggest or oldest firm in the business, but we get the very best prices for our consignors!”

The next Regency Auction, number XXIV, is still open for consignments, but time is running out. The consignment deadline for the December 14th auction is November 10. Legend is proud to announce that the York Collection and the “Bubbabells” Type Set are among the impressive anchors to the sale.
