January Heritage Auction Features a Nice Selection of NGC-graded US Coins

Posted on 12/21/2017

Bronze, silver and gold NGC-certified rarities will be offered on Heritage Auctions' Platinum Night in Tampa.

Two silver dollars from the US Mint’s earliest days, two 1943 bronze cents, and a nice selection of gold rarities are among the NGC-graded highlights of Heritage Auctions’ FUN US Coins Signature Auction. The entire auction will be held Jan. 3-8; these rarities will be offered on the evening of Jan. 4 during Heritage Auctions' Platinum Night sale at the FUN Show in Tampa.

18th Century: early silver

19th Century gold

  • Lot 5211 — This 1852/1 K-9 Humbert $20, graded NGC MS 64, is pedigreed to the famous Eliasberg collection and is the plate coin for A Guide Book of United States Coins (the "Red Book"). This is the finest example certified by NGC.
  • Lot 5009 — This 1880 Flowing Hair $4, graded NGC PF 67 Cameo, is exceptionally rare, with only about 20 specimens believed to have survived. The short-lived Stellas, which were issued only in proof and only in 1879 and 1880, are among the rarest and most desirable US gold coins.
