Heritage Auctions recently featured The Redding Collection of Quarter Eagles in one of their Showcase auctions – a collection deep in both dates and varieties. Now, bidding is open on Part 2 of the Redding Collection, a fine collection of two other small-denomination gold series – Gold Dollars and Three Dollar Gold coins. Bidding on this auction will continue through the live session, scheduled for 6 PM CT on Thursday, November 18.
One coin that has already attracted attention is lot 45074, an 1879 Gold Dollar graded MS67 by PCGS. From a mintage of a mere 3,000 pieces, this Superb Gem is conditionally rare and among the finest 1879 gold dollars known, with none certified numerically finer from either of the major grading services. Well-struck from lightly clashed dies, each side offers warm orange-gold and peach color with semiprooflike fields. A tiny, lone mark on Liberty’s cheek denies perfection.
Some of the additional notable coins featured in this auction are:
- 1854-S G$1 MS62 PCGS
- 1857-C G$1 AU55 NGC
- 1860 $3 MS61 NGC
- 1861 $3 AU55 NGC
- 1864 $3 AU53 PCGS
- 1880 $3 AU58 PCGS
- 1882 $3 MS61 NGC
