The World's #1 Numismatic Dealer
Summer FUN Auction Opens For Bidding
The time is right for more Summer FUN! We always look forward to
our Orlando auction in
early July, and once again there is plenty to like in the sale.
Historically, this event is known for its "loaded" Premier Session
that gathers together a dazzling assortment of U.S. coins from
colonials to modern rarities. The feedback we receive from our
customers says this is what you like most about the auction ... and
we do, too.
Summer FUN would not be
possible without an outstanding selection of featured consignments,
including the exceptional J.S. Morgan
Collection, the #3 all-time PCGS Registry set of gold dollars;
Collection, featuring a wide-ranging group of carefully
selected and eye-appealing U.S. type coins; and a remarkable
collection of Indian Head eagles and high-grade Liberty Head and
Saint-Gaudens double eagles from The Gary Lee Rozinski
Collection, as well as many other specialized consignments in
just about every series.
Among this auction's offerings you will find:
Just a few of the many other highlights of this auction
Floor Sessions for this auction start on Thursday, July
10th at 1:00 PM ET, with the Premier Session scheduled
for the same evening at 6:00 PM ET. Additional floor and
internet-only live sessions continue through July 13 at HA.com/Coins.

Seldom Seen Selections: Landmark Gem
One of the innumerable highlights of the June 23 Eugene H. Gardner
Collection, Part 1 US Coins Signature Auction is a gem 1871-CC quarter, one
of only three Mint State survivors known for the date. This
legendary quarter was one of the stars of the Battle Born
Collection auctioned by Stack's in August 2012, a phenomenal,
stellar set of Carson City coinage assembled by numismatist, coin
dealer, and Carson City Mint expert Rusty Goe, the author of the
invaluable The Mint on Carson Street as well as the
lesser-known James Crawford, Master of the Mint at Carson City:
A Short, Full Life.
In every landmark collection, no matter how grand, there are
certain coins that will stand out from the crowd and remain in the
"collective" memory long after the headlines have been written, the
press releases issued, the bidder cards thrown away, and the
numismatic community looks forward to the Next Big Thing. This is
one such coin, a standout in any crowd.
The surfaces of this coin are pristine and uniformly
well-preserved, showing not a single mark or mentionable
distraction. It has been debated in the past as to whether this
piece could be some sort of special presentation piece, although we
believe it is "merely" a nice, reflective prooflike business
strike, fortunately preserved with loving attention — perhaps by
early series specialist Ard Browning or some other unknown
numismatist, to whom collectors will, nonetheless, forever owe a
debt of thanks.
The prevailing color is a soft pearlescent silver-gray,
interspersed with accents of olive, copper-russet, blue-gray, and
amber. Despite the moderate color, vibrant luster percolates from
each side. The reverse is fully struck and the obverse nearly so,
save for a lack of absolute definition on a few of the left-side
In MS65 grade with the added CAC green sticker, this piece is the sole
finest PCGS-certified example of this second-year Carson City
quarter. It is the only Gem example of this issue with the CAC
endorsement, and given that and its PCGS certification, we consider
it to be the most valuable 1871-CC Seated quarter. It is a
matter of subjective judgment whether this piece or the Eliasberg
MS65 NGC example is the more beautiful coin, but both are of
marvelous aesthetic and technical quality.
