Harlan J. Berk Sells PQ Crimson Tide Peace Dollar Collection

On Thursday, September 9, 2021, Harlan J. Berk, Ltd (HJB) announced the sale of the Crimson Tide Peace Dollar Collection. This exceptionally nice, 100% complete set of Peace dollars was sold as a set and was assembled over the course of 15 years by a long-time collector who had a great eye for quality coins.

Regarding the quality of the coins, HJB’s Mike Printz remarked, “While these are not ‘finest knowns’, this set is comprised of hand-picked Gems that certainly rival most Peace Dollar collections.”

Assembling a Peace dollar collection with high-end, high-grade coins is challenging as many coins in the series were generally poorly struck. A few dates are exceptionally rare in MS65 or finer, and when they are encountered, they are often a disappointment due to strike, luster, marks, and eye appeal.

The coins in the Crimson Tide Collection exhibit far better than average striking detail along with wonderful luster and superior eye appeal.
