GreatCollections.com is scheduled to offer
the Capuano Everyman PCGS Registry Set of Morgan Dollars online Dec. 21.
The Registry Set of coins graded and encapsulated by Professioinal Coin
Grading Service is currently ranked fourth. The set contains 72
Morgan dollars graded PCGS About Uncirculated 58 or PCGS AU-58+, and
also stickered by Certified Acceptance Corp.
All coins are being sold unreserved, with bidding to start at $1.
PCGS launched the Everyman sets several years ago in response to
demand from collectors who have amassed superb About Uncirculated sets
in many categories, but they did not rank as the finest when including
Mint State examples.
Ian Russell, president/founder of GreatCollections, said Capuano
started to collect high-end AU Morgan dollars in 2008, when he
realized that Mint State examples of many key dates would cost a
fortune. Caspuano's goal was to find the very best AU example that he
could find and each coin had to have CAC approval.
"It's interesting to note how difficult it is to obtain AU
examples of some issues," Russell said. "For example, some
of the Carson City issues are extremely rare in circulated condition.
Another difficult-to-find coin is the 1884-S, a condition rarity. The
Capuano 1884-S has been graded PCGS AU-58+, CAC.”
Also on Dec. 21, GreatCollections will be offering a complete set of
Proof American Eagle silver dollars, all graded PCGS Proof 70 Deep
Cameo, including the 1995-W American Eagle from the 10th Anniversary
set. The coins are being auctioned individually and are also being
sold unreserved, with bidding to start at $1.
