I had a personal investment in the recent sale of Dr. Steven Duckor’s gold dollar collection at the Heritage 2014 Platinum Night auction session. Steve is a good personal friend of mine (and my wife Irma) so we wanted to be there to cheer him on. I also helped him assemble the set and, as a dealer, you don’t often get the chance to sit with a client while his world-class collection is being sold at auction.

Steve’s collection contained 54 coins, all of which were in some way special. The final price realized for the set—including the 17.5% buyer’s premium—was… Full article at the source>

In “Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia,” Q. David Bowers writes that the 1897-O Morgan dollar is rare at the MS63 grade, with only 400 to 800 surviving examples. In MS-64, he writes, only 80 to 150 exist and in MS-65, about 50 to 100. I decided to take a chance in a Proxibid online auction where I had been buying most of my raw coins, paying $276 for the above one with buyer’s premium.

In MS62, the 1897-O retails at $2,600 with about double that amount for an MS63. At MS64,… Full article at the source>

How to Safely Buy Gold Coins on eBay

By: The Silver Dollar Scoop (Silver Dollar Co)

With the price of gold at a five-year low, gold coins have become a very attractive investment opportunity for many collectors. Any coin shop or bullion shop will have a selection of gold, but most of their coins will be priced at a substantial premium over the precious metal melt value. For the absolute lowest prices on gold and silver coins, a collector’s best bet is eBay.

To the uninitiated, eBay can be a scary place. Counterfeit coins are a very large and real risk, especially when it comes to high value gold. An inexperienced shopper can easily… Full article at the source>

Lot 1017, image courtesy of Stack's Bowers

Prior to the actual sale, I wondered if it were possible for a sale with only 128 lots to have coins actually fly under the radar at the recent Pogue I sale, held in New York on May 19th. With the benefit of a week’s worth of hindsight, I’d say that the answer is yes.

Before I begin, I need to insert the following caveat. With an average lot value exceeding $150,000 the term “selling cheaply” is used with an epic grain of salt. The point I am trying to make in this blog is that at least half the coins… Full article at the source>

The True Draft of the First Commemorative Coin of the Federal Republic of Germany

May 15, 2015 in Antique Coins, Auctions, Coins, Coins for sale, Collecting, Commemorative, German Coins, History, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, World Coins

By: Ursula Kampmann News.CoinUpdate.com (Coin Update News)

On June 25, 2015, Künker auctions a sensation of post-WWII German numismatics: a pattern for the rejected draft by Karl Roth for the first German commemorative coin ‘Germanisches Museum’ (‘Germanic Museum’). Until now, a plaster cast model was the only known testimony!

In August 1952, the German National Museum in Nuremberg celebrated its 100th anniversary. The then Federal President Theodor Heuss, in his capacity as Chairman of the Administrative Board of the National Museum, thought that this jubilee would offer a splendid opportunity to show the public, both at home and abroad, that Germany had indeed changed.

Many hobbyists, especially those starting out, cannot detect the 12 most common problems found on eBay, Proxibid or other online portals. With more coin sales happening now online, often with unreliable sellers who may or may not have any numismatic expertise, it is increasingly essential to identify problems before bidding and determine whether you can live with the flaw.

When I started collecting, I would ask my local coin shop dealers about how to spot problems. Later, coin club presentations helped me learn. However, with our busy lives and fewer brick-and-mortar shops in home towns, the best place to learn… Full article at the source>

The historic coins will be among the PCGS-certified Pogue Family Collection items displayed by Stack’s Bowers Galleries at their booth (#502) during the three-day show.  Stack’s Bowers and Sotheby’s will jointly offer the collection in a series of auctions starting in May.

“The 1822 Capped Bust Half Eagle is one of the greatest numismatic treasures of the United States,” stated David Hall, Co-Founder of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com).

“United States Mint records indicate that 17,796 $5 gold coins were produced in 1822, but today only three survivors are known.  Two of them are part of National Numismatic Collection in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History,” explained PCGS President Don Willis.  “The Pogue coin is the finest of the three, and is graded PCGS Secure™ AU50.”

Legendary collector and Baltimore, Maryland banker and financier, Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. purchased the coin from dealer Abe Kosoff for $14,000 in 1945. Pogue bought it for $687,500 in 1982 at “The United States Gold Coin Collection” auction of Eliasberg coins conducted by Bowers and Merena (now Stack’s Bowers).

There also are only three known 1854-S Coronet Head Half Eagles, and one of them is part of the Smithsonian’s holdings.  The Pogue coin, graded PCGS Secure AU58+, also was formerly in the Eliasberg Collection.  Mint record indicate only 268 $5 gold coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1854.

Only eight examples of the Class I Lettered Edge Draped Bust 1804 dollars are known.  The Pogue family owns the Dexter Specimen, graded PCGS Secure PR65.

Ron Guth, President of PCGSCoinFacts.com (www.PCGScoinfacts.com) states: “The 1804 Silver Dollar is one of the rarest and most popular of all American coins, despite the fact that none were made until 1834 and several were even made many years after that!”
