What’s one of the great privileges of being a dealer in the business for over 35 years? Helping collectors assemble first rate collections. Here are a few highlights:

 

  • In the 1980s and 1990s I helped a midwest collector assemble, and later sell at auction, the Double CC Ranch Collection of Carson City Mint gold which was complete from half eagles through double eagles. We spent years painstakingly pursuing the finest quality for the grade we could find. One of the collection highlights was the 1876-CC Eliasberg Collection half eagle in Gem condition, (PICTURES COURTESY OF STACKS BOWERS)
  • I have worked with a fine New York gentleman now for decades (he is in his nineties), on just about every US collection there is. From Indian Head cents to $10 Indians. Back before slabs he put together raw collections housed in Capital plastics holders. One of the highlights is a Gem quality set of Mercury Dimes. Today we are simultaneously working on an AU Barber quarter collection, a gem set of Proof three cent nickels, and a lovely collection of Gem Proof Buffalo nickels. We are also just one coin away from completing a cherry Liberty Head nickel collection.
  • Recently I have been working with a West Coast collector who is putting together an outstanding collection of United States type coins. One of the nicest coins for the grade I sold him recently was a 1797 Draped Bust half dollar in PCGS Good-6 condition which is absolutely perfect for the grade!
I could site hundreds of nice collections I have helped to assemble.

Collecting Tips
Buy the Best You Can Afford
Buy the Nicest Coin for the Grade
Whether you have deep pockets, or you save up every month to buy coins for your collection, this tip applies to EVERYONE. Buy the best quality you can afford. Equally important, buy the nicest example for that grade you can find.
I’ve made a career of helping countless collectors achieve these two goals with marked success and satisfaction, as well as fantastic results when it came time to sell.
