Two NGC-graded Vintage Gold Rarities Offered by GreatCollections
Posted on 6/22/2022
Two gold rarities graded by Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) are being offered by online auction house GreatCollections. Bidding is already underway for the lots, with the sales ending on June 26, 2022.
Bidding for the 1876-S Half Eagle graded NGC MS 62 has already exceeded $30,000 several days before the end of the sale. This coin is one of only two Mint State examples in the NGC Census, and one of only 27 in all.
Meanwhile, a Gold Rush rarity is also drawing lively bidding. The Augustus Humbert 1851 "880" Reeded $50 graded NGC XF 45 was privately struck in California before the San Francisco Mint opened. These octagonal pieces are eagerly sought by numismatists today.
