Heritage Presents Signature Auction in Palm Beach!

Dallas, Texas: Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Inc (HNAI) will hold its upcoming Signature Sale March 23-26 in Palm Beach, Florida as official auctioneer of the new and exciting Palm Beach Coin Show. In its second year, the show is sponsored jointly by NCG and Heritage.

"One of the great highlights of this auction is the third part of the Richard J. Chouinard Collection," said Greg Rohan, President of HNAI. "With a collection that has been built over a span of more than 65 years, this amazing achievement demanded more than one event to truly do it justice. We're pleased to bring more of this outstanding collection to numismatists worldwide."

Highlights of the Richard J. Chouinard Collection, Part Three:

"Another exciting aspect of this auction is the Luke Fay Collection, a generational collection that comes from a family with deep roots in the San Francisco area," enthused Rohan. "Started by Luke Fay, or perhaps even his father, John Fay, sometime around 1900, and continued by Luke's daughter Mary, who inherited both her father's collection and his love of history, this collection spans the 20th Century. It is a truly remarkable, generational accomplishment, and we're proud to handle this collection on the family's behalf."

Highlights of the Luke Fay Collection:

"The Napa Valley Collection kicks off in this auction," continued Rohan. "We're offering Part One in Palm Beach, which will include a lovely selection of Mint and Proof Liberty Nickles. The individual that assembled this collection has been especially interested in the great series from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, preferring their history, their beauty, and the challenge of finding specimens in high grade. The consignor has always sought the highest grade he could afford, and particularly pursued luster and strike in the Liberty Nickel series."
