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).

The Finest Known
Our research has uncovered seven different 1849 proof dollars:
1. PR67 NGC. The Kaufman coin.
2. PR65 NGC. John Work Garrett Collection (Stack's, 3/1976), lot 266; John Jay Pittman Collection (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1679; Richmond Sale II (David Lawrence Rare Coins, 11/2004), lot 1514; Heritage (11/2005), lot 2237.
3. PR65 NGC. Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 2216; Rod Sweet Collection (Bowers and Merena, 7/2005), lot 1010. The coin is identifiable by a pair of contact marks over and behind the back of Liberty's head.
4. PR64 NGC. Dr. John Pellegrini Collection (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 10264.
5. PR63 PCGS. Kenneth C. Long Estate Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1995), lot 1219.
6. Choice Brilliant Proof. Floyd T. Starr Collection (Stack's, 10/1992), lot 592.
7. PR58 PCGS. 2004 ANA sale (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 6368. For pedigree purposes, we note on the plates a couple of small contact marks on Liberty's upper right (left facing) shoulder, and one left of the eagle's beak.
A. PR65 NGC. 1998 ANA (Heritage, 8/1998), lot 8195. Diagonal (northwest-southeast) hairlines in the fields of both sides are visible on the plates.
B. PR63 NGC. 1996 FUN Sale (Heritage, 1/1996), lot 5638; September 1997 Long Beach Sale (Heritage, 9/1997), lot 7170. Horizontal hairlines in the fields of both sides are visible on the plates.
Gorgeous toning enriches both sides of this marvelous Superb Gem proof. Splashes of aqua-blue, lavender, and golden-tan toning concentrate in the fields, taking on slightly deeper hues on the reverse. The Liberty motif is a soft blue-green, while the eagle and its shield are a mix of reddish-gold and blue-green. A solid strike imparts full delineation on the design elements, further adding to the coin's already outstanding eye appeal. Impeccably preserved surfaces preclude the identification of even the slightest pedigree marker. The beauty and rarity of the Kaufman coin cannot help but ensure spirited bidding.
