The Property of a Lady is a stunning coin collection formed in the 1960s. It is primarily a type coin collection focused on silver issues in both circulation strike and proof, although the collection also contains some beautiful copper pieces, including several remarkable proof half cents. It is one of the many outstanding coin collections featured in our February 22-26 auction of US coins in Long Beach. The entire collection, 350+ lots strong, is spread throughout all floor sessions and two important online sessions.
Gold is represented by key commemorative issues, including a resplendent five-piece Panama-Pacific set — with original box — that will be sold as separate lots during the Premier Session. The two 50-dollar Pan-Pac gold pieces (round and octagonal) each grade MS64 PCGS.
Silver coinage is the focus for much of the coin collection, with early halves, early dollars, Bust, Seated, and Barber coinage, as well as Morgan dollars at the forefront. Most of the coins are wonderfully toned and original, and all have been absent from the market for 50+ years.
Proofs are included in the later series, including some dazzling Seated halves and Seated dollars, as well as Morgan dollar proofs. Among the circulation strikes, we note a Choice Fine 1796 half (Ex: George Walton) and an elusive high-grade 1921-S Walking Liberty half certified MS65 PCGS.
