Important Gold Rarities, All Condition Census Pieces, Will Excite Collectors
Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud, honored, and excited to offer 31 gold coins that make up the second and final portion of the BigMo Collection of Civil War Coinage. A world-class offering of gold coins struck 1861-1865, every coin is within the condition census for the respective issue and aside from high grade, each coin was carefully selected for its eye appeal.
“After the huge success of the first part of the BigMo Collection in our July Regency Auction 39, we are thrilled to work with the collector again,” said Matthew Bell, CEO of Legend Auctions. “Part I achieved many world record prices realized, and we are humbled to have been chosen to sell the second part of this world-class, multi-million dollar collection.”
“The collector’s favorite coin in the collection is a wonderful GEM 1865 double eagle, PCGS-graded MS65 with CAC approval,” explained Greg Cohen, the senior numismatist at Legend Rare Coin Auctions. “It is an amazing, blazing ball of golden luster! The collection features one important highlight after another. When you consider the quality, many of the pieces are in better condition than those found in the most famous of all collections, including Eliasberg, Bass, Norweb, Milas, and Stack. BigMo will now join the echelon of those famed collections of the past.”
