LEGEND NUMISMATICS IS PLEASE TO ANNOUNCE:
THE SALE OF THE 1C CHAIN AMERI PCGS SP65 BN CAC
This sale actually was negotiated and agreed upon at the FUN Show. All we can say is the coin was sold to a long time friend of Legend who is NOT one of the usual suspects.
It is not just our opinion that this coin ranks as one of the all time greatest rarities ever. It is more then just an incredible coin.
To quote researcher John Dannruther, “it is a one horse race here that this is the very first US coin ever struck”. The fact that this coin had polished dies and was so carefully struck lends to that theory. Plus, Ameri’s were known to be struck before the full America Cents.
Our customer-Far East Eagle had so enjoyed being the custodian of this magnificent and historic piece. His place in numismatic history is now documented in the pedigree. He is not retiring from the hobby at all. He is young and he will be collecting many more rarities as time goes on!
A huge congrats to Far East and the new owner! We were honored to have been able to have handled this amazing coin. This sale will forever rank as one of the greatest in numismatic history!
LIFE AFTER FUN?
Heck yeah! It never fails. Every one who did not get what they wanted was shopping hard the few days post FUN. Our sales were not just strong but huge!
We sold soup to nuts. We’re still discussing several larger coins (3 six figure coins) as this being written. We do however expect activity to slow a bit as after this week most FUN Show NEWPS have been offered. To be noted: the strong activity at FUN and the week after reconfirms there is strength in the market. There just has to be better coins offered. That is why in our last Hot Topics we complained how these Internet Only Auction Houses and mass web sites offer “thousands of rare coins”. Its more like thousands of junk/moderns and of course seriously pathetic retreads. When the public knows fresh GEMMY coins are available, they pop up.
It sure does seem that at FUN, ANA, and an occasional Baltimore Show, fresh material makes it’s way to the auctions. The days of seeing a GEM set of Stellas or a group of true rarities being offered at a show are becoming quite scare-no matter the size of the show. Sure small groups or single coins can and do pop up at any time (although VERY infrequent). All this has caused collectors to now seemed trained to buy only at certain times-which is very wrong. Collectors need to ALWAYS be prepared-even if the coin market is bone dry. On and off activity like this can cause for a very bumpy market (2019).
We are still BULLISH on 2020. We have clearly seen that PCGS CAC coins bring the strongest money-because by far they have the strongest demand. We’d guess that of the entire CAC population, less then 5% of all coins are available for purchase. That number could be way too high. In better gold, we place it at less then 2%. Just go and look how many “better” PCGS CAC piece you find for for sale-NOT MANY AT ALL. Its actually comforting to know coins are in strong hands (but not always good for our business).
As you would expect, we have some dazzling quality pieces offered in ROUND II of our FUN Newps.
Our highlight piece is the FINEST graded G $1 1851-O PCGS MS66+ CAC. OMG! This looks like one of those crazy wild commoner dates!
Next up is one of our favorite coins-a “Bro Jo” ship wreck piece. $20 1865-S PCGS MS64 CAC. We ALWAYS buy them when they are in the original holders. These are rare and are seldom seen. Do NOT confuse them with the Central America coins.
Every coin posted was selected for its outstanding quality and eye appeal (a coin has to be really nice to be “Legend quality”).
WE ARE STILL BUILDING GREAT COLLECTIONS
Now that we are advanced on a few Tpe sets, we’d LOVE to work with one or two more people to build a set or two.
A Type set can be anything you want. It is picking a representative of a series. It can be a common date in high grade or a Key Date. Unless you want to build one of the greatest, generally Type sets can be completed.
We work as a team. We represent you and or we find the coins for you. We also help you avoid making mistakes or buying bad coins. We’ve collaborated with hundreds of collectors over the years to build great sets. And we assure you-a set built by Legend Numismatics is BETTER then most others.
Contact is today. There are some cool coins coming up this Spring. Even with the few coins around today, it is a great time to start a set.
If you want to build a really exotic collection-that is what we live for. Contact us!
