Legend-Morphy to offer The Flannagan Territorial Coin Collection in upcoming Legend Morphy Auction
The Flannagan Territorial Coin Collection has been consigned to the Legend-Morphy Regency Auction V, to be held Thursday, December 19th, 2013 at The Venetian during the PCGS Member’s Only Show in Las Vegas.
Although this incredible collection consists of only ten coins, each coin represents a significant piece of numismatic history.
“Even non-territorial collectors should make it a point to view them” said Legend-Morphy partner Laura Sperber. “All of the pieces were purchased back in 1995-1997, and the Eliasberg coins were purchased straight from auction. Quality, eye appeal, and rarity were critical to Phil Flannagan’s keen purchase. Out of all the rarities that Legend has handled, this particular set of coins has remained one of the highlights of our career. The freshness and quality of these coins is unrivaled. All of the coins were graded only once and are in their original holders.”
The collection includes:
- 1861 $2.5 PCGS AU50 Clark Gruber EX Eliasberg
- 1849 $5 PCGS AU53 Norris GN
- 1850 $5 NGC MS60 Moffat
- 1861 $5 PCGS AU53 Clark Gruber EX Eliasberg
- 1862 $10 Pike’s Peak PCGS MS62 Clark Gruber
- 1861 $10 PCGS AU58 Clark Gruber EX Eliasberg
- 1861 $20 PCGS AU50 Clark Gruber EX Eliasberg
- 1861 $20 Copper Die Trial PCGS MS08 Clark Gruber
- 1851 $50 Humbert Slug PCGS MS61 880
- 1852 $50 Assay Slug PCGS AU55 EX Eliasberg
These coins will all be sold unreserved, and will first be bid on individually, then as a set. The higher final hammer price will determine whether it will sell as a set, or as individual coins.
“We are honored to handle this historic collection” said Julie Abrams, President of Legend-Morphy. “With the extraordinary rarity and quality of this collection there no question this auction will garner worldwide attention.”
Just a few of the other highlights from The Regency Auction V include:
- 1911 10C NGC PR69*

Sperber went on to say that “each Regency Auction is limited to 500 high quality lots, insuring that no coin will ever get lost in a phone book sized catalog. Our internet capabilities and live bidding platform are easy to use and rank among the best in the business. Plus, we produce a beautiful hardbound catalog. The Legend-Morphy staff is dedicated to making each sale memorable and rewarding for both consignors and buyers.”
