P.F.M. Morgan Dollar and Crow River Peace Dollar Collections will anchor special “Dollar Day” as part of Legend’s Regency Auction 26 in New Orleans
(2/14/18 Lincroft, New Jersey) — On Valentine’s Day, Legend Rare Coin Auctions proudly announced the consignment of the P.F.M. Collection of Morgan Dollars, the current #6 PCGS Registry Set in the Morgan Dollars Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1878-1921) to Regency Auction 26, the official auction for the PCGS Members Only Show in New Orleans. Not only is it complete by date and mint mark, but the collector also included major varieties that are popularly collected with the regular issues and are there to augment the depth of the collection. For good measure, the collector also made sure to have a fair number of PL and DMPL designated coins to add to the visual allure.
1904-S MS-67 CAC Ex Coronet
“This is a very impressive set,” declared Laura Sperber, the founder of Legend Rare Coin Auctions, upon the collection’s arrival in the LRCA offices. “The collector has been carefully assembling the set since 2001, and once you see the coins in hand, you know this was a real labor of love for him. The list of highlights is really impressive — a Gem MS-65 1892-S, the Coronet Collection 1904-S in MS-67 — just wait until you see the whole thing, there really are many amazing coins!”
“After our record-shattering sales of the Sunnywood/Simpson and Coronet Collections, the owner of the P.F.M. Collection knew that there was only one auction firm that could produce a catalog that would show, in print, the love he had for the coins, and present them in that light to today’s collectors,” said Julie Abrams, president of Legend Auctions, who worked directly with the collector. “Some of the coins are tied for finest, or second finest graded, the 1889-O in MS-66+ is the sole finest for the date, and there are many dates where only a handful are graded finer.”
“Each coin is well matched for eye appeal,” noted Senior Numismatist Greg Cohen, “and there are many familiar pedigrees seen, including Jack Lee, Coronet, PCGS Tour, Cajun, and Shrike.”
Highlights of this collection, include, but are certainly not limited to:
1879-O MS-66 CAC Ex Jack Lee II
1880 MS-66 PL
1880/79-O MS-65 PL
1886-S MS-66 PL Ex Jack Lee-Naples II
1890-S MS-66 PL
1891-O MS-65 DMPL
1899-O Micro O. MS-64+ CAC
1904-S MS-67 CAC Ex Coronet
