The Long Beach/Summer FUN auction includes many NGC-certified U.S. coins, including a gold rarity with fewer than 30 examples known.
A gold rarity from the early days of the U.S. Mint is among more than 800 U.S. coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) offered in an upcoming Heritage Auctions sale. Online bidding is already underway for the Long Beach/Summer FUN U.S. Coins Signature Auction, which will be held July 20-23, 2023.
Standing out is a 1797 BD-1 Quarter Eagle graded NGC AU-55 (lot 3177). Mint records indicate that a mere 427 of these Quarter Eagles were struck, and only around 20 to 25 are estimated to exist today in all grades, making them exceptionally scarce.
