LEGEND WILL BE OPEN 9-3 MONDAY
THE TAXMAN COMETH
Last week we were busy busy selling. This week we were busy busy negotiating earth shattering deals. Our sales slowed unexpectedly.
After speaking to many collectors, for whatever reason this years Oct 15th tax time slowed the market more so then April 15th. Obviously this too shall pass and we will be back to the crazy on again off again thriving market we enjoy.
Our sales this week were to collectors with specific wants or set builders. No one stepped up and bought anything just because it was cool or to put away. It happens. The sales of gold however (especially generic gold) were still surprisingly strong.
We are highly confident the market will return in full muster around the New Orleans PCGS Invitational which includes our major Legend inspired auction. It actually is one of the best auctions of the year with 100% quality in every coin!
When we write descriptions we always include the pops. Lately, we have been seeing more and more coins where the pops are so darn low (12 or below) with prices generally at levels that simply sound too cheap.
Example: 10C 1916 Barber PCGS MS67 CAC. PCGS 8, NGC 6. That is ONLY 14 if there really are that many graded (allow for upgrades, crossovers, etc). 103 years old and the coin is pretty much in the ultimate state of preservation and its only worth $2,750.00? It does not matter that its a dime. Its still a coin that they do not make any more that has survived in such a great condition with so few remaining.
A dozen or so coins in this great big collecting world is NOT a lot. 20 is not either. Picture a football stadium seating 60,000 with just 20 people. The next generation stadium could be 70,000 and those 20 people will look even smaller-if they all show up.
While the market maybe skipping certain areas, its time these areas get a little respect. Comb through MS and Seated and Barber coins and look at the pops. Look at things like 3CN’s in MS. You’ll be shocked how many seriously top graded coins you can buy for under $5,000.00. The same goes for Proof coins as well. We love all Barber Proofs because the mintages are mostly below 1,000. Highly unlikely all survived and even more unlikely all survived in top conditions.
The Registry game has blurred reality and made rarity almost secondary. Do not be afraid to collect or invest via rarity. There are some really incredible values out there now. Time should change things and have true rarity succeed. Remember coins are always a long term hold.
ALL NEWPS ARE NOW POSTED
Legend Numismatics has been working on some seriously amazing deals. We expect the culmination of these deals to be completed shortly with the coins for sale after the PCGS Invitational. All we can say is this will be an historic event. Other then the Oliver Jung Collection being broken up, there never has been or will be any offering even close! Stay stunned!
Until then, we are now in the middle of selling the coins from our 800 coin deal. You’ll see a few of them posted this week. This is also a really neat killer deal. Its nice to have fresh coins off the market for over decade!
This week we have some serious highlights:
50C 1838 PCGS MS66 CAC EX POGUE
$1 1934-D PCGS MS66+ CAC
G $1 1868 PCGS PR 65DCAMEO CAC ONLY 25 MINED!
$3 1879 PCGS MS65+ CAC
$20 1914 PCGS MS65+ CAC
Those 4 coins are killers! All our other NEWPS are real quality and have a lot going for them too.
If you need a little breathing room after tax time, let us know, we’ll work with you to get you into the coins of your desires.
Do not forget to check out all of our other listings. We have some wicked cool coins that need great homes! We’ll challenge our handpicked HIGH END eye appealing inventory vs any ones!
THE LEGEND DIFFERENCE
First, it is a myth Legend Numismatics only sells high priced top pop coins. We sell pretty much all coins-BUT (BIG BUT) our emphasis is on REAL top quality. We do not sell MS68 Morgans all the time. We sell killer MS67’s etc. We do not sell expensive coins all the time-the mid range coins we crave are all MIA. We do very much appreciate the value of dollar and how hard people work to buy coins!
Our love is dealing with collectors and helping them build the holdings/collections they want. We have always viewed building collections as a team effort. In many cases the collectors sets are sets we’d love to build for ourselves.
You’ll find we are different. We fight for what is right. We deplore coin doctoring and do our best to fight it and or help collectors affected by it (we love to do combat with the PNG on their belief they are fighting coin doctoring). Even simple things like the price you pay for a coin-we fight all the time to buy coins at the “right” prices. We are also there when you need to sell. Remember, messing with auctions on your own is a huge risk. Working with a good dealer-does give you a safety net. We have the ultimate in connections, we are smart, and we are real bourse floor qualified dealers.
Plus, we get first shot on many cool coins. You will want to work with us for that reason alone! Our prices are always based on what we pay. We are more then reasonable. We also attend every major show and auction.
If we were not the VERY BEST, we would not have built exclusively so many #1 sets-Simpson, Law Collections, Bruce Morelans Collections, RSD Collections, and MANY more and a few to be announced shortly.
We only sell PCGS CAC coins to our customers. You can NOT get any better protection then that. We’re dealers you should be working with!
LEGEND RARE COIN AUCTIONS
LESS then 2 weeks until the Regency Event closes! It is a must see.
You KNOW the quality is there and then some. There are even matched original Proof Sets-including an 1895!
Of course the principals of Legend will represent our customers for free in the sale. Please contact us as soon as possibly as it is always first come first serve.
