    The Gardner Collection Books
    All Proceeds to Charity

    Gene Gardner Collection Book Set. Gene Gardner, the collector, formed the finest collection of Liberty Seated coinage, among others. He also formed a spectacular and virtually complete collection of Barber coins, and his interests extended to earlier coinage as well.

    Gene Gardner, the numismatist, studied his coins and published an impressive photographic record of his small denomination Mint State Liberty Seated coins, half dimes through half dollars. The hardbound books, each with an illustrated dust jacket, were published for his own use, as well as the use of his family and closest friends. Photography and layout was accomplished by Steve and Josh Witmer of Tape to Disc Studios in Lancaster, PA. The print run for each was extremely limited.

    Heritage Auctions proudly offers a complete set of these hardbound books, each denomination with a high-quality slipcase. All proceeds, including the buyer's premium, will be donated to the American Numismatic Association's Young Numismatist Scholarship Fund. The donation confirms the Gardner Family's interest in continuing numismatic education.

    1. The Gardner Collection: Liberty Seated Half Dimes, 1837-1873. Published in 2012.
    2. The Gardner Collection: Liberty Seated Dimes, Volume I, 1837-1860. Published in 2012.
