Legend Rare Coin Auctions’ Inaugural Summer Sessions Internet Auction a Success


The first in a series of internet auctions entitled the Summer Sessions closed on June 28.

The offering of 100 collector-oriented coins were greeted by hundreds of interested bidders, vying for these coins since the moment they were posted for bidding online and showing strong activity across the board. The team at Legend Rare Coin Auctions (LCRA), Laura Sperber, Julie Abrams and Greg Cohen wish to thank all the bidders and consignors who participated and contributed to the success of this first Summer Session.

The sale realized in excess of US$200,000.

Laura Sperber said, “The bidding activity was strong from the moment the sale was posted online. Bidders showed that when nice, fresh coins are offered, they are there to buy. I also think the 10% buyers fee helped. We’ll make a few small improvements. Thank you to all the participants, both consignors and bidders.”
