Legend-Morphy partner Laura Sperber “would like to thank everyone who helped make The Regency Auction VI such a success. For a smaller, 381 lot sale, we had 119 successful winning bidders plus hundreds more watching live during the sale. Prices realized were not only impressive, but met or exceeded prices realized by similar coins at any major auction house!”

Sperber went on the say that “the Proof Sets really did well in this sale and there was some very exciting bidding on the 1860 Matched Original Proof Set. In addition, a number of gold pieces met or exceeded our already lofty expectations. This sale was a promising start to 2014, and it bodes well for ushering Legend-Morphy into its second full year.”

All prices realized are posted on the Legend-Morphy website.

The next Legend-Morphy sale, The Regency Auction VII will be held Thursday, May 22 at the PCGS Members Only Show at The Venetian in Las Vegas. They will be accepting consignments through mid-March.
