U.S. Coin Internet Auction #987 from David Lawrence Now Open

David Lawrence Rare Coins - Auction 987

By David Lawrence Rare Coins ……

Our Sunday Internet Auction #987 offers a fantastic selection of 232 new items, 90 No Reserve lots and 30 Vault Value selections. All lots will begin closing at 8pm EST on Sunday, November 19. Some of the more interesting highlights from this week’s sale include:

This week’s first highlight coin is an 1875 $5 PCGS Proof 65 DCAM. The finest-known example of this rare Proof Half Eagle. From a mintage of just 20 pieces, this coin from the famous Trompeter Proof Gold Collection is virtually flawless. Graded originally as a Proof 66 Ultra Cameo, this example would likely obtain the grade once again, alas it truly doesn’t matter as the coin is phenomenal. These rarely trade hands, but the PCGS Price Guide value of $275,000 is indicative of its rarity.

Our second highlight is a 1929 $5 PCGS/CAC MS64+. Due to the limited use in circulation during the post-Depression years, most of the 1929 issues were melted in 1933 when the Gold Recall took effect. This high-end survivor is an absolute blazer and looks like a gem to us. A real treat and the finest that we’ve handled in years. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.

Of course there are many other highlights, so be sure to browse all lots in this exciting new sale before it closes on Sunday, November 19.
