A GEM set of Proof Liberty nickels, the Meridan Collection, has superb examples mostly with cameo contrast and CAC approval. Many other important consignments have been put into the sale, from collectors and dealers, both large and small. Attention should be paid to the silver dollar section, as there are amazing early, Seated, Trade, and Morgan dollars that will delight any collector. Twentieth Century condition rarities abound as well.
