Forcier Collection Commems to Be Offered in Heritage Houston Signature Auction

Posted on 11/10/2009

This complete commemorative type set features NGC-certified coins that are well matched in terms of both grade and appearance — an accomplishment for any collector.

Among the featured collections in Heritage's Houston Signature Auction is The Steven Forcier Collection — an outstanding collection of silver and gold US commemorative coins. This auction is scheduled for December 3-6 at Downtown Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center and over the Internet at www.HA.com/Coins

The Steven Forcier Collection features a complete type set of NGC-certified silver US commemoratives minted 1892-1954, all in Gem grades or higher. Without question, the highlight of the silver offerings in this collection is the Grant with Star half dollar. Graded MS 67 by NGC, this pristine, virtually white coin is unsurpassed in grade at either major grading service.
