Welcome to Legend Rare Coin Auctions’ 33rd Regency Auction! It is amazing to think that we have conducted 33 Regency Auctions already! Yet again our team did it! Since there was not much time between the May and June auction consignment deadlines, the goal was to have about 450 lots. Thanks to the hard work of our consignment specialists and many consignors placing their coins in our care for their presentation in this auction, we put together a sale that surpassed 500 lots, landing at 514 to be exact. The diversity of the coins in the offing presents a grand opportunity for any collector, at all stages in their collecting career. The auction begins with the Hunter Collection, a 39-lot assortment of early silver issues, Draped Bust and Capped Bust half dimes, dimes, quarters, and half dollars, all graded by PCGS. We assure you that whether you are a novice collector, or an advanced specialist, you will find something of interest. Type coins abound, beginning with an AU example of the popular Fugio copper, going into selections of early copper. Selections of the R.S.D. Collection anchor our offering of Proof Barber Dime and Proof Barber Quarters. Between the R.S.D. selections come a very extensive offering of Mercury dimes, with many coins ranking at or near the top of the Population Reports, as well as key date issues and beautifully toned examples. Morgan and Peace dollars are always popular, and our sale is full of lustrous Gem and Superb Gem cartwheels. Key date Morgans include a handsome 79-CC, 89-CC, and 95-S—just to name a few. The Peace dollars are anchored by the Hickory Ridge Collection, the current #13 PCGS Registry Set. Gold coins abound! From the tiny gold dollar to the huge $50 slugs (we have two—a Humbert and a Pan-Pac), there is something for everyone! Particularly strong in popular grade better date $10 and $20 Libs, the sale also has some great early half eagles, and a nice offering of 1907 High Reliefs. Rounding out the sale are two very high end quality pattern coins! We invite you to attend in person on June 27th at The Cosmopolitan Resort in Las Vegas—be sure to come early so you can view the coins in person. PCGS and Legend roll out the red carpet for all attendees, if you have attended a PCGS Members Show, you know what we mean; if not come out in June and see for yourself. As always, happy hunting! Julie Abrams President of Legend Rare Coin Auctions.

Keep in mind that a coin could be either low or high end for the grade, have stunning color or be dull, all of which radically affect a coin’s value. Yes, there can be huge price differences within a grade, and we offer estimates as a guide so Collector’s can have a better idea of value. One thing we will never do is offer low ball estimates in order to claim stronger sales. These published estimates represent what Legend Rare Coin Auctions determines to be an approximate high wholesale value for the coin. The numbers are based upon current market values, similar trades, auction prices, published prices, and a consideration of the coin’s quality. There is no guarantee that the estimated prices are minimums or are exactly what you can expect to get if you attempt to resell them wholesale. We always advise you to view the coins you are interested in and calculate what you’ll pay using as much information as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us. We are here to help you!

Laura Sperber PRINCIPALS Partner Laura was raised in Highland Park, NJ. During high school, the coin bug hit her hard. Her trip to the 1976 Bruce Morelan NYC ANA left a lasting mark and huge desire for her to own and handle the greatest rarities. While attending Partner Monmouth University, Laura attended coin shows more than classes. After college, she started LSS RCI, a wholesale coin company. In 1986, she realized the need for a “better” coin retailer and teamed up in 1986 Julie Abrams with George Huang to form Legend Numismatics. President In 1996 Bruce Morelan became a partner and since then Legend has exclusively built or assisted in assembling this generation’s greatest collections. In 2012 Laura saw the need for a smaller, boutique auction firm, and created Legend-Morphy with Dan Morphy, whom she split with in 2014. Today, Laura is also a leading consumer advocate for coins. The passion has never subsided, and she keeps a beautiful Proof Walker on her desk to this day. Bruce started collecting coins when he was only six years old and by the time he was in high school his dream was to be a coin dealer. But life intervened and instead, Bruce went into business. By chance, he became Legend Numismatics’ financial backer in 1996. His great grandmother had given him three coins when he was young, one of which being a Trade Dollar, so he set out to build the finest Trade Dollar set. After a few years with ultra rarities, Bruce returned to his love of dollars and completed both a set of Gobrechts and a set of Seated Dollars. After selling those sets, Bruce recently returned to dollars with a new Gobrecht set and a spectacular early dollar set capped by his dream coin, the Amon Carter 1794 Dollar. Not many collector’s can say they have completed not only the finest 1794-1885 Dollar Sets and have over the years owned such coins as two 1913 Liberty Head Nickels, an 1894-S Dime, 1876-CC Twenty Cent piece, 1827 Original and Restrike Quarters, 1838-O Half Dollar, two 1885 Trade Dollars and four 1884 Trade Dollars! Julie Abrams started in numismatics in 1986 when she joined up with Bernard Rome and launched Teletrade, the first computerized auction company. Teletrade developed a unique coin trading method, utilizing state-of- the-art digitized voice board technology to run live auctions before the advent of the internet. As President of Teletrade, Julie helped expand the company, increasing the frequency of auctions and expanding annual sales to $24 million within a few years. In 1999, GMAI, a publicly traded company, purchased Teletrade and Ms. Abrams became Executive Vice President of Sales for the parent company. Her job responsibilities included continuing her role as CEO for Teletrade as well as marketing to buyers and consignors, with the goal of maintaining a balance between inventory and sales while growing the business. In 2004 she joined Stacks-Bowers, an old world traditional auction house where she worked to expand their e-commerce presence, including the development of an online bidding platform for the firm. She also marketed Stacks’ programs to secure consignments from dealers and institutions such as banks, museums and universities. Julie is a member of the American Numismatic Association, the Central States Numismatic Association and Florida United Numismatists.

Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud to begin Regency Auction 33 with this thoughtfully foraged collection of Draped and Capped Bust silver coinages. Assembled by a discerning specialist in pre-1840 silver series, this mélange of half dimes, dimes, quarters and half dollars provides a nice cross-section of denominations, dates, grades, pedigrees, and price points from 1796 to 1837. There are condition census coins, popular collector grades—truly something for anyone who collects Draped and Capped Bust coins. This holding is particularly strong in half dimes and half dollars; many of the former in Choice and Gem Mint State grades; while the halves are in AU grades, befitting a wide range of collectors. Every coin is graded by PCGS, and many are CAC approved. This impressive gathering begins with a CHOICE Mint State 1796 half dime with the popular error spelling LIKERTY instead of LIBERTY, pedigreed to the Simpson Collection. Other highlights are a pair of large sized Capped Bust quarters in MS65, one of which traces its provenance back to the Randall Collection and was purchased by the Garrett Family in the 1880s. Capped Bust half dollars range from AU to MS64—these trophies are certain to trigger the competitive spirit of any Numismatic gamesman. On behalf of the consignor, LRCA wishes the best of luck to all bidders and congratulate the winners in advance for acquiring coins from this important offering. 8

LOT 1 H10C 1796 LIKERTY. PCGS MS63 CAC Ex Simpson Collection. A memorable and gorgeous CHOICE Mint State example of this very popular Red Book variety. While on the whole, the variety rates as R-3, most known are lower circulated grades and many are impaired. MS63 and finer examples are VERY RARE and very rarely seen in auction! From our December 2015 Regency Auction XV, where it was described as: “LM-1. Fantastic toning from decades in an album where the rims developed incredible neon green and blue shades, with the centers fading over to crimson and purple. Fiery luster beneath and the strike is very strong for this condition rarity. Only a handful are known in Mint State and this choice example will stand tall amongst even the very finest. Rarely are these early silver coins found with such splendid toning! The surfaces are pleasing with little more than a few shallow lines and for identification there is a minor planchet void below the right wing of the eagle, just touching the talon on the cloud nearby. This is known as the LIKERTY variety because of the broken B punch used to engrave that word, which has the appearance of an errant K rather than the intended B. “This coin is tied with at most five others as the fifth finest of the variety. Its color and surfaces make it stand tall and it would undoubtedly measure up well against even technically finer examples. This is one that no collector will ever want to part with, unless a significantly higher grade coin became available. Its color and allure will always be memorable.” PCGS 4, NGC 1, CAC 1. This was the most recent MS63 to sell in auction, realizing $37,600 in December 2015. NO OTHER CAC-approved Mint Sate coin has ever sold in auction! That just goes to show how rare these are. Bound for an amazing type or date set, and worthy of a very strong bid! PCGS# 4254 | ESTIMATE: $33,000+ 9

LOT 2 H10C 1800 PCGS MS63 CAC Ex. Simpson Collection. LM-3 One look and it is easy to see why we placed it in the original Simpson Collection. We strongly believe the coin should have been a +, but PCGS obviously said no (we make no promises). Superior surfaces are a joy to behold. Even using the strongest glass, you will see not even a minute imperfection anywhere. A surprisingly strong luster blazes boldly from all over. Incredible album toning consisting of totally original gold/pale green/pale violet/royal blue/tangerine and maybe a few other pastel like colors covers both sides. We think the only issue that holds this coin back is the strike. Overall, the strike is strong-including the obverse stars. There is some weakness on the left side of the eagle and its shield, but we believe that is “as struck”. The eye appeal is jaw dropping for sure! PCGS 19, NGC 4, CAC 7. This coin is so incredible and HIGH END, we challenge it vs ANY other MS63. The last one to sell in auction brought $18,800 in November 2018. We can see this coin attracting many serious bidders and selling for a lot of money. This is NOT your typical pretty MS63. Be prepared! PCGS# 4264 | ESTIMATE: $17,500+ 10

LOT 3 LOT 4 H10C 1829 PCGS MS64 H10C 1829 PCGS MS64 CAC LM-2. After a nearly two and a half decade break, half dimes were LM-3. Essentially a FULL GEM example of the first year of the produced for the first time since 1805 in 1829. This is a fully brilliant type. The obverse is ultra flashy with a bold Prooflike flash, while and boldly satiny lustrous near-GEM example. Some semi-Prooflike the reverse has more of a frosty lustrous look. Both sides have an flash comes out in a light when rotated at various angles. Sharply exceptional and original gold, rose, and blue pastel patina that struck devices stand out against generally clean fields. The eye appeal really accents the smoothness of the surfaces and the sharpness of is really pleasant. the strike. This is a lovely little jewel that is very high end for the assigned grade. PCGS 89, NGC 107. This coin sold in June 2017 for $1,293 and the current Collectors Universe value is $1,325. Very scarce finer, this is a PCGS 89, NGC 107, CAC 21. This PQ, near-GEM is worthy of a popular first year of type date. premium bid, the eye appeal and this one will fit nicely into any type or date set of this short lived series.

Nice and frosty. Splashes of russet-gold and dove-silver grace dove-tan accents on the lustrous, satiny surfaces. Well struck from both sides of this lovely little jewel. We note the typical striking a later die state with multiple clash marks, a couple of die cracks weakness in the centers, but the eye appeal is quite nice, and the and a die chip at the top loop of the second S in STATES.

LOT 7 LOT 8 H10C 1832 PCGS MS66 CAC H10C 1833 PCGS MS66 LM-13, considered to be Rarity-3. What a sharply struck GEM! Every LM-4.1. What a visually impressive, ultra attractive PQ GEM Capped detail on the obverse is razor sharp in definition and there is just the Bust half dime. Both sides of this beautiful little jewel are framed in a slightest weakness on the central reverse. Bold, satiny underlying rich blue, violet, and rose patina that yields to a brilliant silver center. luster accents the devices and rich blue/pewter overtones. Even using Shades of teal and gold mingle with the dominant toning, adding the a strong glass we are unable to find any trace of contact that has any the outstanding visual allure. The surfaces border on a SUPERB grade. affect on the eye appeal. HIGH END for sure! Certainly that is what the eye appeal is. PCGS 54, NGC 57, CAC 22. A different LM-13 was the last PCGS/ PCGS 20, NGC 20. Selling for $4,113 in June 2014, this exceptional CAC example to sell, realizing $4,113 in December 2014 and the half dime is again worthy of a very strong bid. The current Collector’s current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $4,500. VERY RARE Universe value is listed at $4,500 and this date is indeed quite rare any finer, with just about a dozen currently graded finer, including any finer. A beautiful example for a type or date set. duplication. This is a great looking GEM worthy of a strong bid. PCGS# 4280 | ESTIMATE: $3,600+ PCGS# 4279 | ESTIMATE: $3,600+ LOT 9 H10C 1834 3 OVER INVERTED 3. PCGS MS66 CAC We love these when we can find them fully Prooflike like this piece. The quality is HIGH END! Full deep mirrors beam boldly from all over. You do NOT have to imagine the mirrors exist. The mirrors have good clarity and are super clean (we used a strong glass to check this coin out). You can actually see some light contrast. There is a subtle layer of pale golden brown toning which is spread all over. The color does not hold back the intense flash of the mirrors in any way. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and have a creamy white frost. The eye appeal is totally gonzo here! PCGS 2, NGC 0, CAC 2. This piece last sold in August 2016 for $5,640. No others have sold in auction since. With quality and eye appeal like it has, we fully expect this coin to pop right past that number even in pre bidding. The current Collectors Universe value is $8,750. This coin will be a terrific addition to any GEM BUST Half Dime collection. Good luck! PCGS# 94281 | ESTIMATE: $5,250+ 12

LOT 10 10C 1798 LARGE 8. PCGS MS62 CAC JR-4. What can be said about this high end and essentially CHOICE Uncirculated Draped Bust dime? Its CAC-endorsement, the only MS62 to receive such an honor, clearly speaks to the amazing, high end quality of this impressive early dime. A vivacious luster glows with a satiny brilliance on both sides. Soft iridescent blue, dove, and olive-gold toning caresses the smooth, problem-free surfaces of the obverse, while the reverse is draped in a violet, rose, and teal blend of color that really pops in the light. Struck after the obverse die broke, with a long die crack that starts at the rim to the left of Y and crosses the field to the tip of Liberty’s nose. A few tiny ticks can be seen on either side, which are totally unobtrusive to the visual allure of this Premium Quality MS62--this is NOT an AU coin housed in an Mint State holder. At the time this beauty was struck, the mint was a fledgling federal agency, and they tried to save costs in every way possible. Since the quarter eagle and the dime were essentially the same diameter, the reverses for both denominations sometimes shared dies. Research by John Dannreuther has revealed that 480 quarter eagles were struck using this reverse die, listed on Warrant 149, which was delivered in December 1799.

PCGS MS65 Clearly one of the FINEST graded examples of this overdate Capped Bust dime. While fairly common overall, it is extremely rare in MS65 or higher grades. Indeed, PCGS and NGC have graded at most seven examples in MS65 or finer grades. This GEM is totally original with wonderful old time, attractive toning. Coppery-gold and lilac-pewter blends with blue and yellow-gold. As the coin is rotated in a light, the brilliant, satiny underlying luster blooms from below the color, enlivening the variegated hues. The strike is bold throughout with just some minor softness as nearly always seen on the eagle’s feathers. The surfaces are clean and free of any distractions of any kind or size that have any effect on the outstanding eye appeal. In 1830, the mint pressed into use an unused 1829 obverse die and repunched the last two digits with a 30. The underlying digits are faint, especially on later die state pieces like this one.

This impressive GEM has no less an impressive provenance, being the Randall-Garrett- Gardner coin. In its first recorded auction appearance in the March 1980 sale of the Garrett Collection, where it appears as lot 632, it was cataloged as: “MS65...Extremely sharply struck. A truly fantastic early quarter. The obverse and reverse are toned a pleasing light gray and lilac color with hints of blue and green iridescence. We have never seen a finer example and doubt if one exists.” This nearly 40 year old description holds up today, though it does fail to mention the satiny underlying brilliance of the luster on the obverse. Struck from a later state of the B-2 dies, all the Die State B die cracks as described in Early Quarters of the United States Mint. The eye appeal is unbelievable and has a provenance that dates back into the 1800s! PCGS 2, NGC 0.

The bold, underlying luster glitters with a smooth radiant sheen that amplifies the wonderful toning. A few of the star centers are weakly struck, otherwise, the devices show a razor sharp definition that is quite impressive.

PCGS 12, NGC 1. Only five examples have been graded finer at PCGS. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $3,950 and this coin has been off the market for over six years. This charming coin is smoother, more even, and from a later die state than the most recent one sold. None of the finer pieces at PCGS grade above AU55. A great coin for any colonial specialist or someone looking for a very attractive example for type. PCGS# 898 | ESTIMATE: $3,400+ LOT 41 1/2C 1797 1 ABOVE 1. PCGS AU55 BN CAC One of the most identifiable early half cent varieties, with the errant 1 punched well above its proper location. Deep brown-mahogany surfaces show some ebony accents, although the glossy luster generates enough life to the fields and devices to keep them from looking dark. Sharply struck from a rusted state of the dies, there are raised areas where the dies pitted before striking. PCGS 3, NGC 3, CAC 2. This coin was sold in our July 2018 Regency Auction for $13,513, but the collector that bought it has changed directions. The current Collector’s Universe value is $11,000. While somewhat common in lower grade, this variety is VERY RARE in this or finer grades. PCGS# 1042 | ESTIMATE: $12,000+ LOT 42 1/2C 1805 NO STEMS. PCGS MS63 BN CAC Walter Breen said it best in his Encyclopedia of Half Cents, when he wrote: “A most frustrating date. Of its four die combinations, two are rare and extremely difficult to locate above Fine condition; the other two are common enough in low grades, but rare in full mint state.” The B-1, C-1 die marriage is of the latter category, and is the only one that has the stemless reverse. Nice hard copper surfaces, no evidence of any environmental damage or planchet roughness that often plagues early copper like this. The obverse is an even, warm chocolate brown color with a satin mint frost that comes to life in a light. The reverse has a steely, icy silver/gray/blue overtone on the richly lustrous surfaces. A stray tick or two are seen on both sides using a strong glass, but they do not impact the outstanding original eye appeal. PCGS 8, NGC 3, CAC 1. No CAC-approved MS63 has ever sold in auction. This eye appealing CHOICE Mint State coin is very high end for the grade, more attractive than the two most recent non-CAC coins that have sold, and this one should bring a strong price. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $5,500. With such a low population, we know this coin will be the target of anyone working on a wonderful Mint State set. PCGS# 1081 | ESTIMATE: $3,000+ 25

LOT 43 1/2C 1831 RESTRIKE. REV OF 1836. PCGS PR66 BN CAC B-2, the “first restrike” which is considered Low Rarity-6, with perhaps 20-30 known in all grades. This REMARKABLE GEM is one of the FINEST known examples and it has an amazing look. The 1831 half cent is a MAJOR rarity! Of the business strikes, perhaps 20-30 examples are known in all grades. Original Proofs also exist, about 20 known. Two series of restrikes were produced for collectors, using the 1831 die, one matched with an 1836 reverse and one matched with an 1840 reverse. All of these are VERY RARE today, and avidly sought by collectors. Rich beaming, chocolate brown mirrored fields are solid and hard. The fields have the epitome of early copper Proof flash, are icy sleek and essentially flawless. A soft teal-blue overtone with traces of original red copper cling to the protected areas, further enhancing the outstanding SUPERB eye appeal. Every detail is razor sharp in definition on both sides, the reverse has a broad, bisecting die break, characteristic of the first restrikes. Approximately 30 were originally minted. PCGS 2, NGC 2, CAC 2. The other coin is ex Missouri Cabinet, that was resold in the 2016 ANA auction for $25,850, which realized $28,750 in the original Missouri Cabinet sale. This coin has previously sold in the 2014 ANA auction for $30,550. The current Collector’s Universe value is listed at $35,000. Note, we sold the Showers-DuPont-Missouri Collection coin, PCGS PR65 BN CAC for $28,200 in our September 2015 Regency Auction. This is an exceptionally RARE Proof half cent and worthy of the FINEST collection of early copper Proofs. PCGS# 1189 | ESTIMATE: $22,000+ 26

LOT 44 L1C 1797 REVERSE OF 1797, STEMS. PCGS MS65 BN CAC An exciting, original GEM from the famed Nichols Hoard. One of the finest certified examples, it is one of the top dozen graded at PCGS in the BN designation. It boggles our minds how this coin has survived so pristine over 221 years! Glossy luster graces both sides of this GEM. The surfaces are smooth and free of any distractions in the fields. The surfaces show off a delicate iridescent sheen that can be seen when rotated in a light, giving the presently offered coin a great look. The colors and high end surfaces contrast nicely against the sharply struck design elements. Ms. Liberty’s hair curls and drapery are fully defined on the obverse, and the wreath is boldly defined on the reverse. Much original red luster clings to the recesses of the dentils on both sides. The eye appeal is spectacular, as should be expected for a PCGS/CAC MS65. PCGS 10, NGC 1, CAC 4. This coin has been off the market for nearly a decade. The current PCGS price is $31,500 and the most recent PCGS MS65 BN to sell in a major sale was NOT CAC, realizing $28,800 in November 2017. With its bold eye appeal and high end condition, it will entice strong bidding from specialists. No doubt there will be lots of action on this GEM! PCGS# 1422 | ESTIMATE: $26,000+ 27

LOT 45 L1C 1820/19 PCGS MS64+ RB CAC A lovely, original borderline GEM example of this popular Matron Head cent. A bold, radiant cartwheel luster blooms all over in the fields. The surfaces are a reddish “clay-soil” hue with earthen tan-brown, and olive-golden patina on both sides. The strike shows some minor softness of the finest details in the hairlines and leaf details. Some “cabinet friction” can be seen on the cheek; that and the coloration suggest long term storage in an old collector envelope. The eye appeal is very pretty and the technical quality is all there. PCGS 3, NGC 0, CAC 2. This is the only MS64+ RB graded, and there are just 2 MS65 RBs and a 66 RB graded finer. There has never been an MS64 RB sold in auction, a PCGS MS65 RB CAC sold for $10,575 in June 2017 and the July 2015 Twin Leaf Collection auction had two MS64 BN CAC coins, one that sold for $9,400 and the other for $4,700. In MS64 RB the current Collectors Universe value is listed at $6,000 and is unpriced any higher. A great coin for the EAC collector, or type collector. Worthy of a strong bid! Good luck!

Ridiculously clean and smooth surfaces do not disappoint, even if you are looking with a powerful glass. The mint luster and surface definitions are helped by prooflike mirrors (no imagination needed). We think the only thing holding the coin from grading MS67 is a bit of deeper irregular toning on the obverse. Both sides are toned. The obverse has a totally natural mix of deeper olive/gold/purple blue colors that are all over. The reverse has a dramatic mix of reddish gold/violet/blue/green original flaming colors.

The presently offered example is totally original with rich lilac, teal, dove, and lavender toning that blankets the smooth, problem-free, mirrored fields. The reflection is moderately flashy through the rich toning, enhancing this near-GEM’s bold visual allure. The devices are sharply struck up in the central portions of both sides. Typical to the date, there is some striking weakness near the bottom of the numbers and in some of the stars on the reverse. We note a few areas of darker toning, and a tiny line or two that account for the assigned grade, but the eye appeal and technical quality stand out and are endorsed by the green CAC bean. Only 50 are estimated to have been struck. PCGS 3, NGC 9, CAC 2. The last one to sell realized $8,225 in October 2014--that was the similar looking Clapp-Eliasberg-Gardner coin.
