This Week's GC Top Ten List - Bidding Ends Sunday, August 15th, 2021

Ian Russell on Sun, Aug 15, 2021 07:40:17 AM

Unique $20 Wass Molitor Gold, Greenwood C & D Mint Collection, Better Saints...

Welcome to this week's Top Ten List from GreatCollections.


We're pleased to present another superior offering of coins in auction this week, including the unqiue 1855 $20 Wass Molitor Gold, graded PCGS AU-50 CAC.  This coin attracted a lot of attention at the ANA this past week, and is likely going to set the all-time single coin auction record at GreatCollections when bidding ends on Sunday, August 15th.


The Greenwood Collection of C & D Mint Gold is another feature of our auctions this week.  Most of the collection still resides in old PCGS holders (the exception being about a dozen recently graded NGC coins that the owner still had raw in flips).  There's many gold CAC stickers in dates that rarely appear on the market.


Although, these ten auctions might be perfect for what you're looking for, please be aware that this is only a tiny percentage of the whole auction.  Each week, GreatCollections auctions over 4,000 certified coins and banknotes!  So, if you don't see anything of interest below, be sure to browse our categories or view all upcoming auctions.


Happy collecting!
