Press Release - January 30, 2006

Jules Reiver Collection Auction Is A Hit!

Dallas, Texas: Heritage Auction Galleries held their Signature Auction of the Jules Reiver Collection of US Coinage on January 24-28, 2006 in their Dallas headquarters. This auction, held with no reserves, realized $8,534,146 in its nine sessions, with 2,815 total bidders participating, 654 of them successfully, for 4,642 total lots. With the On-Line Session closing on January 30, totals for this auction will climb even higher.

"This auction has been tremendously popular with the public," said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage. "Our lot viewing sessions were consistently full, and bidding sessions were standing room only. Interest has been so strong that WFAA, Channel 8 in Dallas, sent a camera crew to cover Tuesday night's session. Needless to say, Mr. Reiver's family is thrilled with the results of the auction."

"Jules Reiver was a fascinating man," opined Rohan. "A World War II hero who was awarded the Bronze Star, he was a passionate numismatist who assembled probably the most complete collection that has ever existed of early US copper and silver coinage by die variety and die state. Mr. Reiver was also an author, writing the authoritative reference on Half Dollars minted 1836-39 and books and articles on several other series."

"Mr. Reiver's collecting efforts were far reaching, and the results speak for themselves," concluded Rohan. "We had originally projected this collection to bring in $7 million, and the results exceeded even our high expectations. We can think of no finer tribute to this man and his lifetime contributions to numismatics."
