Rare Coin Auction: Legend presents a “legendary offering” with The Regency Auction VIII
Headliners: The Simpson 1856-1859 Matched Original Proof Set Collection, The Simpson Proof Seated Dime Collection
Legend Rare Coin Auctions is prepping for their first sale since dropping the “Morphy” and returns to the PCGS Members Only Show at The Venetian/The Palazzo in Las Vegas for The Regency Auction VIII. This sale boasts 232 lots and some of Bob Simpson’s most sought after sets and collections.
The auction will be preceded by two days of lot viewing, with live bidding starting at 5 p.m. PT on July 17th.
Legend Rare Coin Auctions President Julie Abrams is “proud to present our finest sale ever, complete with 232 exciting, high quality lots. We rejected over sixty coins for this auction, proving our commitment to offering you only the most exclusive, top caliber sales, so you’ll never have to think twice about bidding. Our boutique style auctions, offering less than 500 lots per sale, have definitely captured the collecting public’s interest. In our May Regency Auction VII, we sold 87% of lots to collectors. We know you’ll be impressed with this sale!”
THE SIMPSON COLLECTIONS
Long-time Legend friend and customer Bob Simpson is cleaning house and has chosen Legend Rare Coin Auctions to sell his extras and duplicates.
Even as duplicates, The Simpson Proof Seated Dime Collection rivals any ever built. Mr. Simpson is keeping his primary set of 1860-1891 Proof Dimes and the unquestionable star of this fantastic collection is the 10C 1876-CC PCGS SP66+ BM CAC. Other highlights of the collection include:
● 10C 1840 No Drapery PCGS PR64 Ex Eliasberg
● 10C 1842 PCGS PR65
● 10C 1860 PCGS PR68 CAMEO
● 10C 1889 PCGS PR67+ CAMEO
It’s clear that The Simpson 1856-1859 Matched Original Proof Set Collection is a world-class numismatic treasure. Each set was purchased directly from the Mint and remained with the same family until 2000. This is the first time these sets have ever been publicly offered. LRCA partner Laura Sperber claims that “even if you aren’t planning to bid on them, you should make every effort to see them in person. They’re that special.”
A number of other spectacular offerings include:
● 1C 1798 S-179 2nd Hair Style PCGS MS64BN Ex Ralls Collection
● H10C 1865 PCGS PR67
● $10 1907 Indian No Motto PCGS MS67
● 50C 1920 Maine PCGS MS67+
Laura Sperber “wishes we could list all 232 lots here, but urges interested bidders to browse our online catalog, as there are coins to fit every taste and budget.”
The 232 lot sale will be live on the Legend Rare Coin Auctions website within the next week, with the auction commencing at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, June 17th in the Delfino # 4003 room of The Venetian/The Palazzo, 3255 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Additional bidding methods include absentee, phone and live internet bidding via the LRCA website, www.legendauctions.com.
