The Only Complete Collection of U.S. Half Cents Ever Formed to be Auctioned in 2014

The Missouri Cabinet Sale will take place January 26

Ira and Larry Goldberg, along with Bob Grellman and Chris McCawley, are proud to announce the sale of the Missouri Cabinet Collection, containing 228 US Half Cents, on January 26, 2014.

The Missouri Cabinet is the result of collaboration between Mr. R. Tettenhorst (Tett) and the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (EPNNES). Assembled over forty years, the Missouri Cabinet includes numerous examples from the famous Philip M. Showers and Colonel E. H. R. Green collections, plus specimens from many other fine collections.

The name “Missouri Cabinet” came from Walter Breen when he visited St. Louis to take photographs of the coins for his book, Walter Breen’s Encyclopedia of United States Half Cents 1793-1857.


The Missouri Cabinet is the only collection of half cents ever formed which contains every variety of half cent struck for circulation.  In addition, it is the only collection to contain every variety of half cent struck only in proof. The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) has certified each coin in the collection, and they rank the Missouri Cabinet #1 in all eight registry categories applicable to half cents. These categories include:

Half Cents Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1793-1857)

Half Cents with Major Varieties, Circulation Strikes (1793-1857)
