The Big Apple Hosts Heritage Signature Auction

Dallas, Texas: Heritage's New York Signature Auction will be held July 19-21 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. The four-session sale features 3,796 lots, and includes a special section featuring The Willamette Collection. An associated New York Bullet Auction will take place online July 26 at Heritage's award-winning website,

"The New York Signature Auction has rarities worthy of the finest collection," asserted Heritage President Greg Rohan. "An 1864 L on Ribbon proof Cent, one of just twenty struck, is certified PR64 Red by PCGS. The low mintage 1893-O Dollar is tough in any grade, but an MS65 NGC example ranks within the condition census for the issue. The key date 1911-D Quarter Eagle can always be obtained for a price in circulated grades, however, an MS66 representative is one of only four certified at that level by PCGS, with none finer."

Indian Cents and 20th century gold coins in superlative condition provide the focus of The Sarasota Collection. A 1911 Double Eagle, MS66 NGC, is among the finest certified, and a 1908-S Half Eagle and a High Relief Double Eagle are both certified MS65 by NGC. A rare 1924-S Double Eagle, MS64 NGC, will be of considerable interest to collectors of the challenging Saint-Gaudens series.

Highlights of The Sarasota Collection:

A diverse old-time holding, The Willamette Collection is stocked with legendary rarities. A 1796 Quarter and a 1797 Half Dollar provide opportunities for advanced type set collectors, an EG FECIT Continental Dollar will motivate Early American specialists, and a 1796 Dollar, AU53 PCGS, would be a standout of any specialized collection of Bust Dollars.

Highlights of The Willamette Collection:

Part Three of The Bent Tree Collection includes a magnificent collection of Buffalo Nickels, which is ranked #2 on the NGC Registry. The three key date varieties, the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse, the 1918/7-D, and the Three-Legged 1937-D, are all represented in exceptionally high grades.

Highlights of The Bent Tree Collection, Part Three:

Part Two of the Paulsboro Collection features the two most formidable "stoppers" in a type set of U.S. gold coins: The 1796 No Stars and 1808 Quarter Eagles. Another imposing rarity, an 1851 Original Seated Dollar in Mint State, is certain to provide heated floor bidding.

Highlights of The Paulsboro Collection, Part Two:

Other featured consignors for the Heritage New York Signature Auction include The Del Rio Collection, Part One; The Barry Donnell Collection, Part Two; The Dennis Gundy Collection; The Estate of John Naylor, Part One; and The Professor Wayne Newman Palmer Collection, Part One.
