What Not Online Auctions

Legend Rare Coin Auctions

Founded in 2012 by Laura Sperber, Owner and President of Legend Numismatics, Legend Rare Coin Auctions (LRCA) was a boutique numismatic auction company specializing in the finest and rarest U.S. coins. LRCA’s staff of numismatic auction industry veterans included Julie Abrams, President; Greg Cohen, Senior Numismatist; and Jessica Berkman, Consignment Coordinator. The firm’s Regency Auctions served as the official auction for the PCGS Members’ Shows, held six times per year. LRCA sold many important collections for world-record prices, including the Coronet Collection of Morgan Dollars (#1 all-time PCGS set); the David Hall—Bob Simpson Collection of Liberty Head Eagles; the Sunnywood-Simpson Collection of Morgan Dollars; the Phil Flannagan Collection of Territorial Gold, Toned Dollars and 1795 coins; duplicates from the Gerald Forsythe Collections of Buffalo Nickels and Mercury Dimes; the Bob Simpson Collection of Standard Silver Patterns; the Northern Lights Collection of Monster Toned Morgan Dollars; the Crow River Collections of Indian Head $10s and Peace Dollars; the P.F.M Collection (former #6 PCGS Set of Morgan Dollars with varieties); the Oak Crest Collection of Carson City $5 gold; and the Konstantine Collection of Capped Bust Half Dollars, the #1 PCGS Set of Red Book varieties, 1807-1836. The firm recorded the second-highest APR in 2016 with the sale of Bob Simpson’s duplicate 1879 $20 “Quintuple Stella”, which realized $1,880,000.
