The Southwest Collection of American Coins

The Southwest collection was assembled by a very devoted collector over the course of several decades. He assembled sets as well as individual coins with everything ranging from colonials and early type to some better date gold all the way to moderns. All of his sets were complete including keys like the 56 Flying Eagle, the 1916 Standing Quarter and the 01-S Barber Quarter. He was what you might call an "everyman" who loved his coins and there will be some great opportunities to own scarce coins in collector friendly grades. The first offering we present includes part of his collection of Trade Dollars, some Early Type and some gold. We will be offering different parts of this collection over the coming 6 months. If you have specific want list items, please get those to us so you don't miss a coin that just might be a perfect fit for your collection.

The Higgins Collection of Proof Liberty Seated Dimes

We recently purchased the Higgins Collection of Proof Liberty Seated Dimes, a really lovely group of coins assembled over many, many years. The collection was purchased with each coin still in envelopes and then submitted directly to PCGS. A really lovely group of coins with great overall eye appeal assembled by an old time collector.

The Eagle River Morgan Dollar Collection

We recently purchased a group of sets of Morgan Dollars, all still in the Whitman albums they have been in for the past 35+ years. We have added the "best of" and there are some very attractive, original and collector friendly coins in the collection.

The Cincinnati Collection of Barber Half Dollars

On June 1st we will launch our latest Personal Catalog, The Cincinnati Collection of Barber Half Dollars. Assembled by a gentleman I have had the pleasure to work with for over 25 years and a true Barber Half nut, this is the one of the most impressive offerings of Barber Half Dollars I can recall.

Of the 40 or so Mint State pieces and 7 Proofs, well over half were purchased in the mid to late nineties with the others purchased before 2006. Only coins exhibiting superb technical merits for their respective grade along with great eye appeal were placed into the collection. This helps explain why we were never able to complete the set since it became increasingly difficult to find accurately graded coins that also possessed originality and eye appeal.

The Need for Auction Representation by Tom Delorey

The other day, I read an interesting thread in the Collectors Universe's U.S. Coins forums which showed a group of U.S. type coins that a collector had recently purchased at a major auction. Each coin was illustrated by three images. Taken as a whole, they prove that the old adage...Read More >>
