Top lots include the 1792 P1C Birch Cent, Judd-5, Pollock-6, R.8 MS61, for $517,000, which garnered headlines around the world. A 1880 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1657, Pollock-1857, R.6, PR65 NGC, ended at $352,500 and a 1792 P1C One Cent, Judd-1, Pollock-1, High R.6, SP35 PCGS Secure cleared $352,500.

Two world records were set during Heritages’ World Coins auctions: One of seven known 1933 George V pennies set a world record for a coin of its type when a British phone bidder bested two American floor bidders with a $193,875 bid. The auction price nearly doubled the previous world record for a 1933 George V penny. A 1732 Mexican Philip V 8 Reales, considered America’s first milled “silver dollar,” set the week’s second world record when it ended at $152,750.

Ancient coins performed well as a Jewish War Year 5 Shekel, found at Masada, sold for $211,500 and a superb specimen of a Ptolemy I Soter gold stater, as founding king of Ptolemaic Egypt (305-282 BCE), brought $94,000.

The August 11 Currency auction saw $1,817,050 in total sales. Three top lots included a classic $5,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note PMG Choice Uncirculated 64, which sold for $152,750; a $10,000 1934 Federal Reserve Note PMG About Uncirculated 55 brought $129,250. A rare, $50 1864 Compound Interest Treasury Note PMG Very Fine 30 Net – a discovery note – ended at $129,250.

“We always schedule special pieces for these annual auctions, and bidders responded,” Halperin said.
