U.S. Marshals release, Pogue Collection display at Long Beach Expo

The following is a release from the Long Beach Expo:

Visitors on opening day of the January 29 to 31, 2015, Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo will have the opportunity to obtain first-day-of-issue commemorative coins directly from the U.S. Mint.

"This will be an exciting opportunity for collectors and dealers," Long Beach Expo President Cassi East said. "Representatives of the United States Mint will be at the show all three days selling the new U.S. Marshals Service 225th Anniversary commemorative coins, starting on January 29. That's the first day of issue for these clad half-dollar, silver dollar and gold $5 denomination coins.

"Plus, visitors can see coins from the eagerly anticipated Pogue Collection, including one of only three known 1822 Capped Bust Half Eagle gold coins and the Dexter 1804 Class I Draped Bust silver dollar. Also, the Simpson Collection of Gobrecht Pattern Dollars will be publicly displayed for the first time on the West Coast."

The just-issued U.S. Marshals Service coins will be available along with many other Mint products at booth No. 1126.

Professional Coin Grading Service will offer special First Strike insert labels for Marshals Service commemoratives submitted for PCGS certification during the three-day expo.

A total of 175 coins from the D. Brent Pogue Collection will be displayed at the Stack's Bowers Galleries booth, No. 502. Many of the coins have never been publicly displayed anywhere since they were acquired over the decades by Pogue and his family. The collection is certified by PCGS and features special gold labeling to indicate the D. Brent Pogue Collection pedigree.

Among the other Pogue coins on display will be a 1794 Flowing Hair Half dime (LM-3) graded PCGS Specimen-67; 1827/3 Capped Bust quarter dollar (B-1), PCGS Proof 66+ Cameo; 1797 Draped Bust half dollar, Small Eagle (O-101a) PCGS MS-66; 1807 Draped Bust half dollar (O-105), PCGS MS-66; 1808 Capped Bust Left Quarter Eagle (BD-1), PCGS MS-65.

Heritage Auctions, the official auctioneer of the Long Beach Expo, will conduct a major auction of United States rare coins, and there will be Meet the Expert sessions with PCGS Co-Founder David Hall during the show," said East.
