This Week's GC Top Ten List - Bidding Ends Sunday, August 8th, 2021

Ian Russell on Fri, Aug 06, 2021 09:13:42 AM

Basket PA Collection U.S. Gold Type Coins, 1921 Saint-Gaudens, 1884-S Morgan...

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


We have a very solid week of auctions at GreatCollections.  The anchor consignment is the Basket PA Collection of U.S. Type Gold Coins featuring some very rare issues (1796 No Stars and Stars Quarter Eagle, 1795 Half Eagle, 1798 Half Eagle & more).


We're also offering a key Saint-Gaudens date - the 1921 - this example is graded PCGS MS-62.  Morgans include a key date 1884-S graded NGC MS-63+.  Speaking of Morgans, we're also pleased to offer part 1 of the Bancroft Hoard - over 2500 Morgan Dollars will be auctioned over the next 6 months including many key dates in various grades.


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!
