The D. Brent Pogue Collection, after just three sales, has become the most valuable numismatic collection ever sold. With total auction prices realized of $68,569,181 the Pogue Collection has now passed both the John J. Ford, Jr. Collection ($63,052,197) and the Eric P. Newman Collection ($61,880,912).
