Collectors attending the American Numismatic Association National Money Show in Pittsburgh Oct. 13-15 will be able to view the number one collection in the PCGS Set Registry of Barber half dollars with major varieties (circulation strikes, 1892-1915). The set will be displayed at the Professional Coin Grading Service booth, #134.
“The display in Pittsburgh will be only the third time this impressive collection has ever been publicly exhibited,” said Don Willis, PCGS president.
“[The set] was assembled over decades by Dr. and Mrs. Peter K. Shireman, and they’re still adding superb coins,” said BJ Searls, PCGS Set Registry manager.
PCGS Mobile CoinFacts (m.pcgscoinfacts.com), a new application that lets smartphone users instantly access all the historical numismatic information and coin images from the PCGS CoinFacts database, will be available to everyone for a free trial at the show. PCGS CoinFacts is an online source of information for more than 30,000 U.S. coins, including current prices, auction records, population and images.
