DLRC Auction Highlights by David Lawrence Rare Coin Auctions ……
Our Sunday Internet Auction #1081 offers 185 coins from Mike J’s #1 NGC Registry of Morgan VAMs; a famous Registry-quality, key date Barber quarter; and a rare early Bust half dollar. Don’t miss these and other exciting PCGS-, NGC-, and CAC-certified pieces.
We are excited to offer Part 1 of the number 1 ranked NGC Registry set of Morgan VAMS, Mike J’s Morgan Collection, this week in Auction #1081. This collection has been solidly placed as the #1 set on the NGC Registry and is one of the few Morgan Dollar collections we’ve ever handled that included nearly every VAM in the Registry Set. This first offering of 185 coins is set to start at $1 with NO RESERVES! Highlights in the collection include an 1888-O $1 PCGS MS62 (VAM 1B Scarface), a scarce Carson City issue 1893-CC $1 NCG MS63, a popular key-date 1895-S $ PCGS MS63 (VA-3, S/S), and a 1903-S $1 NGC/CAC MS63 to name a few. Be sure to review each of the coins and look out for Part 2 of this group to start next week.
All lots will begin closing at 8 pm EST on Sunday, September 8.
Our first highlight coin is an 1856 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS/CAC Proof 63 (Eagle Eye Photo Seal). This CAC-approved coin is a famous key date from an original mintage of an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 coins with an attractive matte finish.
Our second highlight is a 1901-S 25c PCGS/CAC MS67+. The 1901-S quarter is by far the most famous key date in the Barber quarter series. It’s so popular as a date that this issue transcends the series, and key date collectors seek this coin out. With gorgeous pastel tints, this piece is absolutely outstanding for the grade with pleasing patches of violet and russet toning. PCGS has just two specimens of this extremely rare coin in this grade and only one higher. The MS68+ example is housed in the Hansen Collection and this would be the finest example that is available for collectors.
The third highlight coin is a 1797 50c PCGS/CAC F15. This piece is CAC-approved for quality with superb original surfaces and excellent strike. Pinkish grey fields with lighter grey devices and inscriptions give this a pleasing overall look and outstanding eye appeal.
