Heritage is pleased to feature outstanding selections from Part
One of the Greensboro Collection as a part of their October
US Coins Auction, the official auction of the Dallas National
Money ShowSM. This auction is scheduled for October 17-20
in Dallas and through the Internet at HA.com/Coins.
The level of rarity and quality in this collection is immediately
evident when one reviews the Proof Seated dime offerings. Every year
of the series between 1837 and 1891 is covered, save for the 1851,
which has never been certified as a proof by one of the major grading
services. This means that no fewer than 20 of the rare pre-1858 proofs
are included. Each of the dimes in this collection grades PR63 or
higher, with the vast majority at PR66 or higher. If that isn't
enough, this collection also includes a Specimen
1839 dime from the New Orleans Mint, and the popular 1859
transitional "Stateless" dime, struck without the
legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA anywhere on the coin.
The other series covered in this collection is Proof Barber
quarters, and what beauties they are. The collection is, of course,
complete, and every single coin is a Superb Gem... or higher, complete
with five coins in the penultimate grade of Proof-69. Both the 1896 and
the 1898 bear
the Ultra Cameo designation from NGC.
If that isn't enough, this collection also includes a selection of
proof and specimen strikings from the earliest part of our nation's
history, including a 1793
Wreath Cent in Specimen 66, a 1794
half dime in Specimen-67, a 1792
Disme struck in copper, and a proof
1802 novodel dollar. You are invited to view the entire
selection at HA.com/Coins.
Future offerings from The Greensboro Collection will focus on
other proof series and great rarities, with another superb offering
scheduled for FUN
in January. The collector behind The Greensboro Collection
remains active in numismatics; the proceeds from this and the other
parts of The Greensboro Collection will help with assembling current sets.
This auction is open for bidding now at HA.com/Coins.
