The C.L. Emmons M.D. / Meyer-Walk Collection is a wide-ranging collection of U.S. Coins that has been collected over the course of 80 years. Initially, the collection was the work of Grandpa Emmons, whose collection was auctioned off in the 1950s. However, certain pieces were not sold and now form the foundation of the current collection. From there, the current owner, Mr. Walk, has expanded the collection on his own, with the assistance of his wife to include many pieces from a wide range of series, focusing on quality and eye appeal. The highlights of this collection are complete sets of Morgan Dollars, Buffalo Nickels, Lincoln Wheat Cents, Indian Cents, Washington Quarters, Franklin Halves, and many more. The collection will be broken up and sold over a series of auctions in the coming year.

Browse and bid before the auction closes on Sunday, April 21.
