Final auction of 2019 finishes the year with an awesome array of rarities.
(Lincroft, NJ — November 8, 2019) Legend Rare Coin Auctions has done it again! Capping off a very successful 2019 is Regency Auction 35, being held at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on December 12. The auction, the official auction event for the PCGS Member’s Only Show, consists of 611 lots from the Valley View, Trzaska, Cullen B, and Piedmont Numismatics Collections, along with other important consignments.
Starting the sale is the Valley View Collection, a selection of high end, wildly toned late date Walking Liberty half dollars and classic commemorative half dollars, Proof Walking Liberty half dollars and assorted type coins.
The Trzaska Collection is the #2 PCGS Registry Set of Proof Nickels, 1866-2019. This historic offering of many top-grade Gem and higher quality Shield, Liberty, Buffalo, and Jefferson nickels has a lot to offer collectors, regardless of their level of sophistication.
The Cullen B Collection of Morgan Dollars is a partial set of PCGS-graded, CAC-verified examples, in popular grades for collectors. The collection is focused on high-quality coins, the vast majority fall in the $1,500-$4,000 range. Featuring VAMs, a few nicely toned pieces, and some PL and DMPL pieces for the added interest.
The Piedmont Numismatics Collection is an “investment portfolio” type of collection, featuring high-end type coins, assorted gold coins (including a Gem Proof 1882 quarter and half eagle), and commemoratives. These coins purchased over a decade ago are now being offered at auction for the first time since at least early 2009.
