Two Auctions Are Better Than One

July 24, 2017

     This year’s ANA World’s Fair of Money is in Denver, Colorado and it is just a little over a week away. There will be two official auctions for the ANA, hosted by Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries.

     Stack’s Bowers Galleries will feature two well-known rarities that should attract some very intense bidding. The Lord St Oswald-Norweb 1794 Flowing Hair Dollar in PCGS MS64 with the CAC sticker should be the star of this sale.

Even the more common MS65 dates are not easy to locate other than the 1854, 1874, and 1878. Most MS65 $3 Gold coins have less than 10 coins certified in the grade, and the dates prior to 1874 have fewer than five available.

1855 S $3 MS63 NGC (Finest-Certified) is available at the Heritage Auctions ANA U.S. Coins Signature Auction in Denver, Colorado, August 2-6, 2017

     The most common $3 Gold coin by mintage is the 1854 Philadelphia with 138,618; after that comes the 1878 with 82,324 and then the 1874 with 41,820. Based on the value of these three coins, they are also the most common by price up through the Mint State grades, until the MS63 & MS64, where the 1874 and 1878 are the two most common dates of the series by value.... more of the most recent
