A CRAZY WEEK
Legend and Legend Rare Coin Auctions enjoyed a most powerful week. Off the web site, Legend sold many coins-highlight $1 1873-CC PCGS AU55. Our coin of the week, 1C 1858 PCGS PR65 Cameo CAC had 5 buyers! LRCA held an unbelievable auction. Our sales at the PCGS Invitational were beyond our expectations.
Every time we think the market will slow; it does the opposite to us. We’ve been though too many cycles over the years not to be suspicious. The lack of coins mystifies us. Demand clearly is building-still. Putting up some cool NEWPS PCGS CAC (of course) is like a feeding frenzy. Auctions are the same way. The one constant, collectors LOVE PCGS CAC coins!
THE LEGEND RARE COIN AUCTION
With two hours to go we were ready to write this sale off as a ho hum below average sale for the first time in our history. Then with just an hour left we had a huge wave of several hundred registrants. There was nothing but action in this sale from start to finish.
The Dale Friend Collection of Bust Halves drew some world record beyond Pluto prices. Look at these highlights:
10 50C 1818/7 SM 8 PCGS MS65+ CAC $36,425.00

280 50c 1926-S OREGON PCGS MS68+ CAC $31,725.00
What sale! There probably were more strong (but not moon money) prices in this sale then we have ever seen!
ALL of the lots listed above had multiple bidders. There were very few one and done sales.
Legend Numismatics firmly believes if you have the “right” quality coins, they will sell for strong money. This sale more then proved that.
We did not get in some packages, so we have just handful of NEWPS this week. As you can expect from us, each NEWPS is handpicked for the best quality and eye appeal.
Unfortunately, we did not buy a single coin at the New Orleans PCGS invitational. There was nothing there we liked.
