The auction being held May 3-7, 2023, offers hundreds of early American coins graded by NGC.
Hundreds of American coins graded by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC), including two examples of an experimental denomination known as a Stella, are being offered in a Heritage Auctions sale. The CSNS U.S. Coins Signature Auction is scheduled for May 3-7, 2023.
A top highlight of this auction is an 1879 Flowing Hair $4 graded NGC PF-67. Named after the star design on the reverse, only a few hundred Stellas were struck as part of a proposed coinage intended to facilitate international trade. The NGC Census contains only a single example with a higher numerical grade than this one.
Also featured in this auction is an 1801 O-102 half dollar pedigreed to the “Col.” E.H.R. Green and Newman Collections and graded NGC MS-64. According to the auction house, this is the finest-graded example of the O-102 die marriage and the only one known in Mint State.
