Simpson Rare Date Twenties Featured in Heritage Sale
May 9, 2022
The Central States Heritage Signature Sale was highlighted by numerous rare date Twenties in high grades that brought well into six figures; many of these came from the Part VIII sale of the marvelous Bob Simpson Collection. Lot viewing took place at a very successful Central States Convention, and again, the actual sale was a week later at Heritage's Dallas offices. Highlights from the Heritage Auctions sale are listed below.
1863 $20 Gold certified by PCGS PR65+ Cameo and CAC
The 1863 $20 Gold had an original mintage of just 30 coins. This actual coin last sold in a Heritage Chicago Sale for $381,875 when it was holdered by NGC as a PR66 Cameo. Now it is certified by PCGS as a PR65+ Cameo and also has CAC approval, and it brought $1,020,000 in this Heritage Sale. Besides the Simpson Collection, this coin had previous homes with Eliasberg and Trompeter.

1920 S $20 Gold Saint Gaudens certified by PCGS MS65
This PCGS MS65 is the third finest 1920 S $20 Saint according to the population reports, and it is currently valued at $412,500 FMV, but it realized a remarkable $600,000. This has always been a difficult coin to locate. There is less than 200 coins certified in all grades by PCGS and NGC, with six in MS65 and only two in MS66 (both PCGS). The values for the MS65 and MS66 will need upcoming adjustments in our price guides.
