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).

Tied With One Other as Finest Known
"In 1854, the Mint increased its production of proof sets and, although they were not yet available to the general public (the practice of selling to the public-at-large did not begin until 1858), they were available to individuals who contacted the Mint directly with a special request to purchase a proof set. The exact mintage of 1854 proof sets is unknown, but perhaps as many as 30-40 silver and copper proof sets were minted and distributed. Although others have stated a contrary opinion, I feel it is most likely that the proof 1854 quarters were struck only for inclusion in those sets and that all survivors today come from the original 30-40 pieces minted. All denominations of 1854, except perhaps the silver dollar, are rarer in proof than generally realized, and it is my opinion that no more than 12-15 proofs of this denomination still exist. This specimen is certainly among the finest and it is also the one with perhaps the most famous pedigree."
This fully struck Premium Gem displays pearl-gray centers and light peripheral sun-gold toning. No obvious hairlines appear, and a line on the lower-right obverse field, parallel with the lower left inner point of star 12, appears to be of Mint origin. This line can be used to confirm the Parmelee-Woodin-Pittman pedigree in any future market appearances.
This piece is tied with one other PR66 NGC example for the honor of finest certified (3/13). The other PR66 is the Eliasberg-Kaufman specimen, which sold in Heritage's 2007 Milwaukee ANA Signature for $138,000.
