NOT SO STALLED
Prior to the invasion we felt some people were staring to sit on the sidelines. As the shock of the actual invasion wore off and prices settled, we are seeing people creep back into the coin market. Our sales Thursday afternoon were six figures!
Clearly gold could not hold its break through to $2,000.00. We saw no upward movement in the already red-hot generics. We did see the telemarketers out in force trying to peddle coins. If successful they will need quantities in 1-2 weeks. IF they are successful. This obviously is a fluid situation that will keep changing daily. We’d be shocked if more people (the general public) did not start buying gold in some form.
March will be a very interesting month. We do not see a whole lot new coming out and the demand is still off the charts for certain things. We are fearful of March because once we sell down our inventory, we can’t replace anything.
A quick note: there still is way too much money out in the world. We pass these rizty neighborhoods by the shore where folks are tearing down mansions and building fortresses all over the place. And these are second homes! It’s incredible. We’re talking dozens of homes, not just a few.
THE LONG BEACH AUCTION
It was business as usual. There were no real “superstar” coins with runaway bidding (save for the $20 1862 NGC MS63 CAC we chased and badly lost $174,000.00), however there were numerous coins with really strong bidding. Clearly there was a fresh deal of gold imbedded in the sale and even though the coins were NGC, the coins brought strong money. Friday are the less expensive coins, and many are super strong already in the pre-auction bidding. OUCH!
Friday night was just as strong. We left 30 bids-strong bids and won only 3 coins. Yet again, in the auction world coins prices are VERY strong.
This sale proved yet again the deep strength of the market.
LEGEND IS BACK TO BUYING
We’re back to our same position that people should be selling dupes or taking profits if they are in lower grade generics. GEM Gold is still a buy-if you can find any. BUT we do NOT recommend things like PCGS MS66+ CAC Saints at $8,000.00. We saw that in an internet only sale recently. That was absolutely a one off.

WE CAN USE MANY BETTER COINS TOO
Please remember, we are NOT Legend Auctions. If you bought a coin from them we do not make any promises to buy that coin. We will make what we think is a fair market offer. The vast majority of coins sold via LRCA are from consignors.
All our offers are current market. We don’t look to get rich-but all offers are within our comfort zone-unless we have a need for a specific coin. Right now, as much as we LOVE better Type, we are weaker buyers unless as coin is special. We assure you, Legend pays top dollar plus!
Call or email us with what you have for sale.
This week we have over $700,000.00 worth of fresh NEWPS!
We have a MONSTER Stella that ranks among the best we have ever owned. It is a true ULTRA Cameo.
We also have a partial set of $5 Indians in real GEM MS65/MS65+ PCGS CAC. You certainly don’t see those offered anymore.
The final highlight-we had our Slug reimaged and reholdered. We swear its better than a 58!
Don’t forget to check out our regular inventory as well. Its 100% PCGS CAC. You can’t ask for a better group of coins!
LEGEND RARE COIN AUCTIONS
LEGEND AUCTIONS IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE-THE DALE FRIEND COLLECTION TO BE SOLD IN REGENCY 51+52 AUCTIONS
Legend Rare Coin Auctions is honored to have been selected by the Dale Friend Estate to auction off his collection. Dale, who passed away last year at the age of 80 was a long time dedicated collector, synonymous with quality and eye appeal. Dale over the years developed a wonderful relationship with Legend Rare Coin Auctions and Legend Numismatics, and it is a bittersweet feeling to sell his prized collection. In coordination with the family, we have split the collection into two parts, the first will be sold in Regency Auction 51, and is highlighted by his early dollar cabinet, an advanced collection of AU and Mint State coins, many from some of the greatest collections ever assembled: Eliasberg, Garrett, Pogue, Miller, Hesselgesser, and others. Part 2 will be sold in our New Orleans Regency Auction 52 in May, anchored by his Bust half dollars and the famed Eliasberg 1892-O Micro O Barber half dollar in PCGS MS68 CAC. We know that once sold, all the Dale Friend coins will be featured with a pride of ownership in the next collections they grace.
