DALLAS, TX.- There is no other coin in American numismatics with as storied and famous a history as the Class I 1804 $1, of which only eight exist, and Heritage Auctions will be offering the Mickley-Hawn-Queller specimen of the 1804 $1, graded PR62 by both PCGS and NGC, from The Greensboro Collection, Part IV, as the lead lot in its Platinum Night event on Friday, Aug. 9, the centerpiece of the company’s Aug. 8-10 U.S. Coins Signature® Auction in Rosemont, IL. “The Class I 1804 $1 is the undisputed King of American coins,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions, “and it is always an event when one of them shows up for auction. It’s the rare chance for a top collector to add their name, or the name of their collection, to a history that will never diminish in importance. It is, in many ways, numismatic immortality for whoever comes out on top, and we expect there will be many vying for that honor.”
