Website Tips: MyWantlist
If you're looking for those special items for your collection, and would like to be automatically notified when we have one in inventory or in auction, MyWantlist is for you.

Instead of you having to search for specific items every time you visit the site, MyWantlist works by saving the individual searches that you might perform every time you look for coins in our inventory or auction.

MyWantlist can be reached from any Heritage home page, or by going through the MyHeritage tab on any page on our site and clicking on "View/Edit Wantlists". You will be taken to the Wantlist options for the Heritage site you are currently on; you can change which Heritage venue you wish to save searches for by choosing the venue from the "View MyWantlist in:" drop-down menu and clicking "Go".

When you first start using this feature, MyWantlist will look something like this:



You can add new searches based on five factors — the category (which generally corresponds to a type for US coins or a country for world coins), a keyword such as the date, the grading service if any, the low grade, and the high grade. If you want to save a search for any Shield Nickel, in the drop-down box marked "All", choose Shield Nickels. You will not need to use a keyword in this case, and the default search looks for coins from any grading service in any grade, so all you will need to do is click on the "Add New Item" button and you're done.



If you wish to add a search for circulated 1886 Liberty Nickels, the procedure would be similar. Here you would enter the denomination "Liberty Nickels", the keyword 1886, and the high grade of AU58 in the drop-down box marked "To Grade". Again, you need only click on the "Add New Item" button and you're done.

You can also look for other, more general items through this feature. For instance, if you are looking for top 100 VAM varieties of Morgan Dollars, choose Morgan Dollars as your denomination and enter the keyword "Top 100".



For other tips on how to perform searches, click here, or click on the "Need Help? Click HERE" link on the MyWantlist page.

This Week's Top Ten
The ten issues from US coin series that ended before 1900 to appear most often in Heritage auctions:

1834 50C Small Date, Small Letters MS67 NGC
1834 50C Small Date, Small Letters MS67 NGC
  1. 1834 half dollar
  2. 1875-S twenty cent piece
  3. 1799 silver dollar
  4. 1855 gold dollar
  5. 1832 half dollar
  6. 1857 Flying Eagle cent
  7. 1827 half dollar
  8. 1858 Flying Eagle cent
  9. 1854 Type 2 Gold dollar
  10. 1794 large cent
Proofs were included, but since eight of the coins are from before 1858 and another is from a branch mint, they made little to no difference.

Reduced Auction Commissions When You Resell Your Winnings!

When you win any lot worth with a hammer price of $1,000 or more (or $2,500 for Art and Nature & Science lots), you will receive a coupon that entitles you (or your heirs) to re-consign that lot to Heritage at a reduced seller's commission. Selling through Heritage is a convenient and hassle free way to maximize your return (find out why). Maybe you'll need to make room in your collection for something better, perhaps your collecting tastes will change, or maybe it will be your heirs that benefit; but be sure to save the coupon, which could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.

  • Coins: 0% Seller's Commission for all items $1K or more.
  • Comics: 50% of the usual Seller's Commission for all items between $1K & $10K, and 0% for items $10K and over.
  • All Other Categories: 50% of the usual Seller's Commission for everything else over $1K ($2,500 for Art & Natural History).

Around Heritage Auctions
Frederick Frieseke's On The Beach May Sell For $600,000+

Frederick Frieseke: On the Beach (Girl in Blue)
Frederick Frieseke's masterpiece On the Beach (Girl in Blue) is expected to bring $600,000+ in Heritage Auctions' Dec. 5 American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture Signature Auction, part of a two-day presentation of fine and decorative arts in New York, starting with Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Dec. 4 and the inaugural Art of New York Signature Auction also on Dec. 5.

Frieseke's On the Beach is being offered at auction from a private collection following a century of appearing in public exhibits and publications, said Brian Roughton, Director of American and European Art.

"This is a very important transition piece for Frieseke," Roughton said. "It marks a movement away from the use of tonal "color fields" and the start of painting en plein air and employing natural sunlight on his female models."

Anna Hyatt Huntington: Torch Bearers
Among the historic and important works in the auction is Torch Bearers by Anna Hyatt Huntington, a heroic monument and the most significant work by the artist to come to market. The monument is expected to bring $400,000+ and is offered to benefit the Discovery Museum and Planetarium of Bridgeport, Conn., with proceeds to directly benefit science and engineering programs and exhibits.

Roman Bronze Works was hired to cast the work in bronze in 1963, an undertaking which took months to complete. "Torch Bearers symbolizes the passing of the torch of civilization and progress from one generation to the next," said Aviva Lehmann, Director of American Art at Heritage's New York location. "There are only four other known examples of Torch Bearer in existence, with the other examples, cast in aluminum rather than in bronze , located in Havana, Cuba, at the University of Madrid in Spain, the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey, and the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia."

Robert Henri: Lucinda, Mexican Girl
Additional highlights include Lucinda, Mexican Girl, 1916 by Robert Henri, which could sell for $400,000+. Purchased the year it was finished and passed down through the family to the current owner, the work was initially exhibited in 1916 and 1917 during the height of Henri's success as the leader of the avant-garde Ash Can School.

Another highly anticipated painting is A Summer Vacation, by Edward Henry Potthast, which is expected to sell for $150,000+. Perros-Guirec, Côtes du Nord, France, by Childe Hassam, is expected to hammer for $100,000+.

Bathers by Max Weber exemplifies the artist's work during the pivotal period from 1909 to 1912, when he transitioned from his early Fauvist compositions to his mature Cubist style. Painted in 1910, two years after Weber returned to New York from his studies in Europe, the work retains the foundation of his European training, but the contorted figures and flattened space embody the fundamental roots for his Cubist exploration. It could sell for $60,000+.

Charles Cary Rumsey: Study for a Centaur
The auction also includes an important private collection of 20 bronzes by Charles Cary Rumsey, led by Study for a Centaur, circa 1914, which may sell for $5,000+. The full size massive bronze titled "The Centaur" is installed in front of the Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society Museum on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, N.Y.

A second important collection offered in the American auction includes 43 magnificent hand-colored engravings from John James Audubon's ornithological magnum opus, The Birds of America; from Original Drawings, led by a plate for Pine Finch (Plate CLXXX from The Birds of America) 1833, expected to bring a combined $80,000+.

Tiffany Turtleback Tile Lamp May Bring $100,000+ To Highlight Extensive Offering Of Lalique And Art Glass

Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Bronze Golden Turtleback Tile Lamp
An important Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Bronze Golden Turtleback Tile Lamp, circa 1910, is expected to sell for $100,000+ in Heritage Auctions' Dec. 4 Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Signature Auction in New York. The auction's more than 350 lots also include an outstanding selection of Galle, Daum, several fine pieces of French pate-de-verre by Walter and Argy Rousseau, and a private collection of Italian artistic studio glass from several prominent Murano makers.

"This auction offers an extensive private collection of Tiffany glass and bronze desk items, including some very rare models in exceptional condition," said Nick Dawes, Vice President of Special Collections at Heritage Auctions. "As always, Heritage is pleased to present another strong showing of works by Rene Lalique, including several classics in addition to jewelry designs, vases and automobile mascots."

Lalique: Amber Serpent Vase
Heritage's global reputation as a leader in Lalique at auction is well represented in a stunning Amber Serpent Vase, circa 1924, standing 9-3/4" high, which may hammer for $40,000+ and a wheel-carved Tourbillons Vase with Black Enamel detail, circa 1926, may also sell for $40,000+. A superb, original Victoire Mascot Hood Ornament, circa 1928, may bring $20,000+, and a vivid electric blue Perruches Vase, circa 1919, from France and with a wheel-carved signature, is likewise expected to sell for $20,000+.

Important early works by Tiffany remain in high demand and an extraordinary Tiffany Studios Favrile Morning Glory paperweight vase, circa 1900, engraved L.C.T. is sure to draw interest at its $25,000 estimate. Among the selection of Tiffany Studios lamps include a leaded glass and bronze Apple Blossom table lamp, circa 1910, is expected to bring $12,000+, and a bronze and Favrile 10-light Lily lamp, circa 1910, may cross the block for $20,000+.

Grapevine pattern desk set, circa 1915, all fully marked Tiffany Studios
Notable discoveries include a 16-piece Grapevine pattern desk set, circa 1915, all fully marked Tiffany Studios, New York, which is expected to bring $7,000+, and a rare Grapevine pattern adjustable desk lamp, which is expected to sell for $2,000+. A Gallé Overlay Tall Bottleneck Floral Vase, of unusual form and standing a full 21" high and dating to 1900, is expected to bring $5,000+.

The auction also features a final section of 100 hand-picked lots of affordable art glass to include a wide variety of American and European art glass.
