A marvelous collection of Dollars and other type coins
assembled by Robert Tarr, Sr., will be anchoring Heritage's
FUN 2003 Signature Sale, taking place Jan. 8-11 in Orlando.
Some 45 years in the making, this impressive assemblage
reflects the consignor's dedication to numismatics as
"an educational hobby of history." As Mr.
Tarr explained: "I started collecting as a young
man, when completing a set of Lincoln cents was the
least expensive way to start collecting coins."
He enjoyed searching through bags of cents to fill album
holes, and soon discovered that "as each hole got
filled, there was that much more incentive to finish
the collection while researching the coins and mints."
He graduated to searching bags of silver dollars, often
going through several bags each week looking for quality
coins and rare dates. Silver Dollars remain his all-time
favorite coin (especially prooflike strikings). When
he "began to buy more expensive coins, many were
purchased from Steve Ivy and Jim Halperin, when they
were still young men." Some duplicates from Mr.
Tarr's collection were sold at Heritage's Santa Clara
about the Robert Tarr, Sr. Collection.
