(Santa Ana, California) — Professional Coin Grading Service (www.pcgs.com) has graded the coins from the D. Brent Pogue Collection that will be offered in May in the first of a series of auctions jointly conducted by Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Sotheby’s.  The collection has been described as the most valuable collection of federal American coins in private hands.

 The holders of each PCGS-certified coin features special gold insert labeling to indicate the D.

 “Many of the coins that will be offered in the first auction in May are either the finest known or tied for finest known in the PCGS Population ReportSM,” said Don Willis, President of PCGS.  “Everyone on the PCGS certification team who examined the coins was impressed by the splendid quality of so many important, historic United States coins.”

Among the many highlights of Pogue Collection coins now certified by PCGS and scheduled for display at the January 2015 Long Beach Expo are:

August 26, 2014 in Blogs, Coin Dealers, Coin Shows, Coins, Collecting, Numismatic Societies and Clubs, Numismatica, Numismatics, Opinion

This was repeated when I saw the offerings online: both Heritage and Stack’s Bowers had impressive sales, and I would need to carefully view them.
