GreatCollections Yosemite Collection

Comprehensive 19th-Century PCGS-Graded Collection Being Sold Unreserved

GreatCollections is currently auctioning the Yosemite Collection of 19th-century U.S. coins. The collection starts in 1794 and goes through the end of the Seated series with all denominations from half cents through silver dollars.

Ian Russell, President/founder of GreatCollections commented: “There are over 600 PCGS-certified coins in the collection that we are currently auctioning, coins range in value from $50 up to over $10,000 – all are being sold unreserved with bidding to start at $1.”

“There are a number of very rare Seated coins that appear on the market infrequently. Some will go years in between appearances. We are expecting spirited bidding,” Russell continued.

Over 100 coins are being sold each week starting March 27, 2016. All coins are currently listed at www.greatcollections.com with professional images.
