Heritage Auctions is pleased to present The Siegel Collection as a part of the April 26-30 official auction of the Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS) convention in Schaumburg, Illinois. The finest selections from this auction are scheduled to be offered at Platinum Night, 6 p.m. Central Time Thursday, April 27.
The Siegel Collection was assembled over three decades by the Chairman of a prominent manufacturing company. Interested in numismatics since childhood, he was always on the lookout for coins that combined quality, rarity, eye appeal, and low population. The decision to sell his collection is due to advancing age, the desire to see the collection sold during his lifetime, and most of all, to not burden his heirs with an asset in which they have little expertise.
Among the highlights from this stunning collection are many exceptional silver dollars, which serve as the central focus of the collection including memorable patterns and some spectacular proofs.
The patterns are impressive, including an 1876 Trade dollar pattern – the rare Judd-1467 – certified PR66 Cameo, Ex: Woodin, Newcomer, Boyd, Farouk, and Judd, as well as the USPatterns.com and Pollock plate coin. Other selections include a Choice contrasted proof 1895 Morgan dollar graded PR64 Cameo PCGS, and a brilliant PR64 NGC 1839 Gobrecht dollar, Name Omitted on the Base, Judd-104 Restrike. A dozen of the Morgan dollars grade MS68 among many other Superb Gem examples to headline the circulation strikes. Peace dollars check in with a 1921 High Relief graded MS67 NGC (among the finest-known) and a remarkable 1922 Peace dollar in matte finish proof format – struck in high relief and certified PR64 PCGS with CAC endorsement – one of just five to eight such pieces reported to exist by PCGS. A 1776 Continental dollar certified XF40 PCGS (CURENCY misspelled, struck in pewter) joins early dollars and Trade dollars plus flawless modern dollar issues to create a comprehensive study of the evolution of the American silver dollar from its early history to its recent modern-day form.
Several key type coins in silver and gold complete this high quality, wide-ranging consignment.
