Legend assembles PCGS Registry Set of Proof Liberty nickels
(Lincroft, NJ) Legend Numismatics is proud to announce the completion of the S.L.R. Collection of Proof Liberty nickels. Not only is this set the #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set, but with the addition of the finest known 1913 that the collector recently purchased for $4,560,000, it is now the only set that can be called the finest Proof Liberty nickel and is complete. History has been made!
Since the creation of the Set Registry at PCGS, the client, who wishes to remain private, has dreamed about assembling this set. The first step became possible at the 2018 ANA, when the Eliasberg-Legend-Smith 1913 nickel, graded PCGS PR-66 CAC came up for sale. The final piece came together recently after Legend Numismatics was able to negotiate the purchase of the former #1 PCGS Registry Set and obtained it for the collector, making this the greatest set of Proof Liberty nickels ever assembled.
“Never in my lifetime did I think I think I could be involved in the building of such an amazing set,” declared Laura Sperber, president,
“I have been involved in collecting coins for decades and have built many different collections over the years” said the proud owner. “Being able to own the finest set of Proof Liberty nickels really is a dream come true! I have been working with Laura Sperber for many years, and I am so proud of this important accomplishment we have done together. Without her help and support, I am not sure we would have been able to make this happen.”
Planning is in the works to have this important collection put on display sometime later this year.
