During the month of August, CAC-approved coins fared well in live auctions in Dallas, Texas and Costa Mesa, California, in addition to performing in many internet sales. Here are 10 examples, selected from a larger number of results that could have been listed.

1. 1907 No Motto Indian Head $10 Eagle in MS-64

On August 21, GreatCollections sold a CAC-approved MS-64 grade 1907 Indian Head No Motto $10 gold coin for $5,390 USD. On Aug. 7, GreatCollections sold a PCGS-graded MS-64 1907 Indian Head No Motto $10 gold coin without a CAC sticker for $3,825.

2. 1845-D $5 Half Eagle in AU-55

On Aug. 23, Stack’s Bowers auctioned a CAC-approved AU-55 grade 1845-D $5 gold coin for $8,100.

These are not auctioned very often.

On January 22, 2021, Heritage auctioned a PCGS-graded AU-55 1845-D without a CAC sticker for $3,960. Although market levels for these increased during some periods between January 2021 and August 2022, such increases probably do not entirely account for the fact that a CAC-approved AU-55 grade 1845-D brought more than twice as much as a non-CAC PCGS-graded AU-55 1845-D five.

3. 1870-CC Seated Liberty Dollar in MS-62

On Aug. 25, Stack’s Bowers auctioned a CAC-approved MS-63 grade 1853-C One Dollar gold coin for $18,000.

Yes, it’s true that market levels for these increased from February 2021 to August 2022, but this increase could not account for the entire difference between $18,000 and $13,200.

6. 1844-D $5 Half Eagle in MS-61

On Aug. 25, Stack’s Bowers auctioned a CAC-approved MS-61 grade 1844-D $5 gold coin for $13,200. On March 21, Heritage sold a PCGS-graded MS-61 1844-D $5 coin without a CAC sticker for $6,900.

On May 6, Heritage auctioned a PCGS-graded MS-65 1908 ‘With Motto’ $10 gold coin without a CAC sticker for $7,200. CAC-approved MS-65 1908 ‘With Motto’ tens have been bringing much more than non-CAC PCGS-graded MS-65 or even MS-66 1908 ‘With Motto’ tens.
