Single-Owner Collection of Coins
Online-Only Auction:
February 20-27, 2019

Online Bidding will begin to close:
Wednesday, February 27, 6:00pm (EST)

This Online-Only Auction has a soft-staggered close; an additional five minutes is added to the close time for every 30 lots being offered (i.e. lots 1-30 begin to close at 6:00pm, lots 31-60 begin to close at 6:05pm, etc.). If any bids are received within the five minutes prior to a lot closing, the lot time will be extended for an additional five minutes (i.e. lot 1 receives a bid at 5:56pm, the time extends to 6:01pm). The five minute extension will continue to be applied until no further bids have been placed.

When placing a bid, you are welcome to bid the asking price, or you may enter your maximum bid and the system will competitively execute your bid for you.

Previews:
Tuesday, February 26, 10:00am - 5:00pm

The late 1980s and early 1990s were a period of profound change when it came to collecting United States coins. Third party grading companies, once a curious novelty, began to catch on in a big way and completely transformed the hobby by the end of the 20th century. The single-owner North Carolina collection offered here amply illustrates those days when "raw" un-graded coins and new-fangled plastic "slabs" co-existed in the same collection. Here you will find early PCGS "rattlers," GSA Carson City dollars, uncertified gold, U. S. Mint gold, and a run of BU classic commemorative halves encapsulated "MS63" by Blanchard. We hope you enjoy this stroll through the recent numismatic past.
