Legend Rare Coin Auctions (LRCA) will be conducting its 25th Regency Auction on January 25, 2018 in conjunction with the PCGS Members’ Only Show at the Luxor in Las Vegas. The 349 lot auction begins with the Ipswich Collection of three cent silvers. From there, the firm presents high-grade and high-end, quality issues from the early days of the first U.S. Mint in Philadelphia to rare key date issues of popular 20th-century series.
“There really is virtually something for everyone in this sale,” said Julie Abrams, president of Legend Auctions, “From early type to better date gold, to classic Commems and patterns, you will certainly find something to add to your collection.”
“We are very pleased with how this auction came together,” said LRCA founder, Laura Sperber. “As the dealer that built the top two collections of Mint State and Proof three cent silvers, I can tell you that the Ipswich collector put together a great, nearly complete set, he would not put a low quality piece just to fill a hole. We are very impressed by the quality for sure. Other areas that are strong in this sale are copper, silver, and gold type coins from the first Philadelphia Mint, with some great high end early copper and Capped Bust halves. One of the major gold highlights is a real GEM $20 1920 PCGS MS65, one of the two finest graded by PCGS in 37 years of coin grading!”
