Whether just starting out with AU Bust halves, or are putting together a world-class Registry Set, there is something to attract your attention.”
“Buyers have really come to enjoy our boutique auctions, and with the strong results, come more consignments,” said Julie Abrams, president of Legend Auctions. “That our team was able to put together such a quality focused auction in such a short period of time, speaks volumes to how well our model works. We cannot be happier with the sale that is being presented.”
“There are many finest graded, tied for finest graded, unique at CAC for the grade coins in this sale to entice and excite the Registry Set collector, while at the same time offering more modest grade rarities for other collectors,” said Greg Cohen, the firm’s senior numismatist. “Regardless of grade or ranking on the condition census, what unites each coin in this sale is solid, high quality for the assigned grade. Coins from the earliest days of our federal mint, to classic mid-20th-century condition rarities, Regency Auction 33 has them all.”
