GreatCollections Offers Dazzling NGC-graded Classic Commemoratives

Posted on 6/8/2022

They include a rare Specimen and 18 coins that earned NGC's coveted Star Designation.

Dozens of stunning classic silver commemoratives certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) are being offered this month by online auction house GreatCollections. The coins are from the impressive collection of former NFL star Gregg Bingham. Depending on the lot, bidding ends on June 12, 19 or 26, 2022.

A top offering from the collection is a 1922 Grant-Star Half Dollar Commemorative graded NGC SP 65. Issued for the centennial of President Ulysses S. Grant's birth, most of these coins were struck without a star above the word GRANT on the obverse, so the Star variety carries a significant numismatic premium. Adding to its rarity, this particular example is one of only four in the NGC Census that have been certified as a Specimen, indicating it was struck using early-state dies.

1922 Grant-Star Half Dollar Commemorative graded NGC SP 65 and 1935 Spanish Trail Half Dollar Commemorative graded NGC MS 68★, both pedigreed to the Bingham Collection.
