Gold set tops Legend coin auction

A $2 million collection of gold $10 Indians topped bidding at Legend Rare Coin Auction’s 23rd Regency Auction Oct. 26 at the Philadelphia PCGS Members Only Show.


Just 33 coins comprised the Indian gold $10 set. Prices realized totaled $1,951,381.25.

The set, called the Crow River Collection, is the current No. 2 PCGS Registry Set for the design.

Individual rarities shone among the Morgan silver dollars.

An 1892-S graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service as MS-67 with a Certified Acceptance Corporation sticker brought $470,000. It was once part of the Eliasberg and Coronet collections.

Another piece that shared the same pedigree, an 1893-O PCGS MS-66 PL CAC, fetched $411,250.

A particularly interesting lot for average collectors was a 1950 proof set. It was graded PCGS PR67. It is Ex the Dale Larsen Collection. The set realized $6,168.75, which is more than three times the pre-sale estimate of $2,000.

“Because of Legend’s impressive list of international clients, many great coins are now on their way to homes outside of the States. The market for really great, important American rare coins is truly international,” said LRCA founder Laura Sperber after the sale.

“We get the very best prices for our consignors,” said Julie Abrams, president of LRCA.

The next auction is Dec. 14. Each sale is limited to 500 lots.
