Bid InformationFor your convenience, the bid information on this page automatically refreshes with the most up to date data so you don't have to refresh/reload this page.
Minimum Next BidBid increments determine the lowest amount you may bid on a particular lot. Normally, bids must be at least one bidding increment over the Current Bid. However, podium, fax, phone and mail bidders submit bids at various times without knowing the current bid and must be on-increment or at a half increment (called a Cut Bid). Any podium, fax, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full or half increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full or half increment.
Internet bids are required only to bid the increment past the Current Bid, or more. Internet bids greater than one increment over the Current Bid can be any whole dollar amount.
It is possible under several circumstances for winning bids to be between increments. It is also possible for an existing bid to be outbid by less than a full increment, sometimes by only $1. This usually happens when two bidders feel that a lot is worth about the same amount, but one places an off-increment bid. Generally when this happens, the Current Bid was much lower than the high secret maximum bid when the off-increment bidder placed his bid.
For example: On Tuesday, you bid $1500 against Bidder A's Maximum Bid of $1000, raising Current Bid to $1100. Then on Thursday, Bidder B, seeing a Current Bid of $1100, guesses the final price and decides to bid $1501, outbidding your Maximum Bid by $1. You would now have to bid $1600 through Heritage Internet bidding or $1550 on Heritage Live (if available for the auction) to possibly win that lot. Next time, maybe you'll bid $1502 and outbid Bidder B by $1!
Number of BiddersThis number represents the number of individual bidders prior to the close of Internet bidding on each lot. An individual who bids more than once is still counted only once. During the live session, only the winning bidder is included in this number, although detailed records are kept of all forms of bids.
Although many lots will not get reserves, this signifies that we have not yet posted any reserves to this entire auction. Reserves are usually posted approximately 3 days prior to the closing for Internet-only auctions, and approximately 7 days prior to the live session for Signature auctions. At that point, any unmet Reserve will become both the price shown (with an asterisk) and the Minimum Next Bid, regardless of any previous bids.
Although the consignor's agreement allows a reserve on this lot, the deadline for submitting such a reserve has elapsed. If consignor submits a reserve post-deadline and the item fails to meet that reserve, we may charge the consignor a higher reserve fee.
This lot is being sold without a consignor reserve. (Note: By law, consignors may still bid under certain conditions, but they are responsible for paying the full Buyer's Premium and Seller's Commission if they do.)
A reserve has been posted on this lot, but no bids have met the reserve. The current bid has been set to the reserve amount, and the next bid will meet the reserve.
Reserves have been posted for this auction, and there is a reserve on this lot that has already been met.
Lots bearing estimates and without Consignor Reserve shall open at Auctioneer's discretion (usually 25% to 60% of the low estimate).

Name Below Base, Starless Obverse and Reverse
One of Only Three Known, The Farouk-Baldenhofer Specimen
These rarities obviously have their story intertwined with that of the Name Below Base Judd-58 dollars. Much recent research has been conducted on those pieces, and it is now generally accepted that none were struck in 1836. No Die Alignment I pieces are known, and no records exist of these coins until the late 1850s. This would be the earliest date the Judd-63 dollars could have been struck, and it is generally believed that they were actually produced sometime between 1867 and 1878, a time period that would correspond with one of the tenures of Henry Linderman as Mint director.
An interesting recent discovery by John Dannreuther further underscores the late striking period for the Name Below Base dollars. These coins all show effacement of C. GOBRECHT F. from the base of the rock--a move that was clearly done so that it could be added again below the base.
The Judd-63 dollars were obviously produced for sale to collectors as there was no obvious need for a starless obverse and reverse combination. All known examples show the same diagnostics. The reverse shows die cracks through the tops of MERI, the base of LAR in DOLLAR, and the top of TE in UNITED. All examples also show a raised die spur on the right side of the D in UNITED.
Only three silver strikings of Judd-63 are known:
1. Anthon Sale (Bangs & Co., 10/1884), lot 117; Garrett Sale (Stack's, 3/1976), lot 252; Clemente Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1994), lot 1057; L.K. Rudolf (Stack's, 5/2003), lot 2092.
2. William C. Wilson; F.C.C. Boyd (most likely acting as an agent); Virgil Brand (2/12/1919); Farouk Collection (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 2020; A.H. Baldwin & Co.; Received by the present consignor from W.G. Baldenhofer, 10/6/1956 (flip included). This is the plate coin in Breen's Proof Encyclopedia (1977) and his Complete Encyclopedia (1988). The present specimen.
3. H.O. Granberg, the first numismatist to assemble a set of all 1836 Gobrecht dollar patterns, which were displayed at the 1914 ANS exhibit; Waldo Newcomer; Farouk Collection (Sotheby's, 2/1954), lot 1717; A.H. Baldwin & Co. (Baldwin purchased both of Farouk's Judd-63 Restrike Gobrecht dollars); Alfred Ostheimer (Lester Merkin, 9/1968), lot 329; Philadelphia 2000 Auction (Heritage, 8/2000), lot 6174. This is the plate coin above numbers 46 and 48 in the book United States Pattern, Trial, and Experimental Pieces by Edgar H. Adams and William H. Woodin (1913). This coin now a part of the Dr. Julius Korein Collection housed at the ANS.
This particular piece shows the deep, watery proof fields that are consistent with proof dollars struck after 1858. Light hairlining explains the grade, but in reality the coin appears finer than a PR62. The centers are generally much lighter in color, almost brilliant, than the margins which gradually deepen to rose-golden. Close examination with a loupe reveals a number of minuscule lint marks on each side. The only mentionable defect is mint-made: an irregular planchet flaw on the reverse below the right foot of the F in OF. This defect is just barely visible in the Breen texts.
