Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC Treasure Auction 14
As our first floor sale (with simultaneous live Internet bidding), our 14th live auction was a new milestone for our growing company. Serious bidders and top numismatists from around the world came to the October 30 auction in three consecutive sessions at the DoubleTree Hotel in the Walt Disney World Resort. The auction room was filled with 50 to 75 people the whole time, most of whom also attended the previous night’s welcome dinner and enjoyed continuous socializing and networking. It was wonderful to see, a veritable “coin party” like nothing the field has seen in a long time!
Prices realized (including buyer’s fees) totalled over $1.85 million. Many lots sold for record prices, reflecting how our specialized attention and worldwide visibility have brought top collectors old and new to our auctions. We continue to offer a unique combination of high-class material, expert knowledge and first-rate service, and now we invite you to consign and take advantage of the opportunity to be a part of it.
