Bust Half Dollars and Territorial Gold Coins Highlight the PNG US Coin Auction

PNG US Coin AuctionHeritage is proud to present the inaugural PNG Dallas Invitational US Coins Signature auction, scheduled for February 26-March 1 in Dallas! This is home turf for Heritage auctions, and after a coast to coast swing that headlined the record-setting Orlando FUN auction, followed by the annual trip to the West Coast and a busy Long Beach Expo, We are sure that Heritage is more than ready for a refreshing dose of Dallas hospitality and an enjoyable PNG Invitational event.

It would be remiss to not to mention a few words about the consignments to be offered as part of this auction. The specialized nature of these consignments speaks to the strength of the “collector side” of the business, sometimes taken for granted in this time of stunning seven-digit investor coins and one of a kind ultra-rarities.

One of the most extensive groups of Lettered Edge Capped Bust half dollars by Overton variety Heritage has ever handled will be in thier PNG US Coin Auction, taking place at the Gaylord Texan Hotel. This collection is 96% complete by die marriage, with 437 of the Overton numbers representing the years 1807-1836, plus a number of additional coins that are included by die state.

Other coins appear in the fast-paced Online Signature session on March 1, and still more coins — more than 100 lots — are found in the Sunday/Tuesday Internet coin auction scheduled to end on March 1 and 3.

This is truly a wonderful offering for Bust Half collectors, with coins averaging 50.75 in grade and many rare varieties and Choice original examples in preferred collector grades.

The Skidaway Island collection is reminiscent of a previous set Heritage handled in 2006 — the incomparable Jules Reiver Collection, which was also focused on circulated, original coins with appealing surfaces and sharp diagnostics for most Overton die pairs.

Our consignor’s eye for quality is abundantly evident in this auction. For example,

These are just three examples of hundreds that will change hands when this remarkable collection crosses the block. Assembled over a period approaching two decades, such a set is not easy to acquire, and it may be many years before we once again offer as nearly complete a group of Capped Bust halves by Overton number.

Peterson. In particular, the Territorial gold pieces are outstanding, ranging from the early Bechtler issues to private minters in the West and US Assay Office gold. Lot 3313 is a rare Miners Bank ten dollar gold piece, infrequently found and missing in most Gold Rush type collections. The federal issues encompass several rare dates and varieties in all denominations, with high end examples of special interest to dealers and collectors alike.

Just a few of the many highlights of this auction are:
