Heritage to Sell Early $5 Half Eagles from Hutchinson Collection at FUN

11/3/2016

Sometimes it is our pleasure as collectors to view one of our consignments and appreciate it for the numismatic accomplishment that it is. Such it is with The Hutchinson Collection, a collection of early half eagles by variety that will be offered as a part of our upcoming January 4-9 FUN Signature auction in Fort Lauderdale.

Our consignor took a true connoisseur's approach to assembling this collection, with each piece clearly hand-selected and strong for the grade. While there are not many candidates for finest known, the depth of the collection, in this notoriously difficult series, is truly impressive.

Most of this collection is housed in first and second generation holders, as the consignor decided not to attempt to reholder the coins, and is being sold as is. "There are a lot of pieces in this collection likely to upgrade upon resubmission," said Todd Imhof, Heritage Executive Vice President.

Half eagles of the 1820s are all quite rare, and this collection contains five such pieces. Prime among these is the 1828 BD-4, graded MS62 by PCGS (lot ID 12012). This coin has been off the market since it was sold as part of the Harry Bass collection in 1999; the coin's pedigree also includes names like Garrett and Mickley. It is one of only nine known examples of BD-4, and about the fourth finest known of those.

The 1797 Small Eagle five with 16 Stars is represented by a piece graded AU58+ by NGC (lot ID 12002). It represents the BD-3 variety, quite rare in absolute terms but the most plentiful of the four Small Eagle varieties of the year. This variety is quite rare in Mint State, with only a single coin certified as such by the major grading services. The Hutchinson example offered here, just a whisper away from Mint State, should draw tremendous bidding interest.

A few of the other highlights of this collection include:

A Letter from Al Boka

9/27/2016

ha_boka

Please accept my praise for the manner in which you and the entire Heritage team handled the recent sale of my beloved collection of the 58 varieties of 1794 large cents.

From the moment I decided to sell the collection my decision to employ Heritage Auctions had already been determined following the excellent handling of the 2011 sale of my Large Cent date set - the Al Boka Copperhead Collection.

With the superb catalog, a masterwork prepared by Mark Borckardt, the sale was destined to meet all of my expectations; that it did, and then some. The catalog will surely become a must-have reference for future 1794 cent collectors.

The choice of Bob Merrill as auctioneer was a pleasant, unexpected perquisite. Bob is, in my opinion, the best in the business.

Be assured that I would highly recommend Heritage Auctions to any of my associates contemplating the sale of their collections.
