Heritage Auctions and Central States Highlight of Week

April 21, 2014

Heritage Auctions hosts the 2014 CSNS US Coin Signature Auction

Heritage Auctions is hosting the 2014 CSNS US Coin Signature Auction in Chicago, April 23-27

     Central States is the focus for the coming week and, judging by the metals this morning, buyers will be able to do some bargain hunting. Gold is down about $40 since last Monday which has directly led to one ounce Gold Eagles discounted the same amount. Proof $50 Gold Eagles are currently trading at $1,520 wholesale in OGP. Along with demand for the usual metals, buyers will be looking for any and all U.S. Gold, especially better to rare dates. There has not been a slowdown in demand for Type I & II Twenties with advanced buyers searching for Carson City and New Orleans dated coins. Heritage Auctions hosts the CSNS US Coin Signature Auction which includes numerous rarities. Below is a list of the potential highlights of this sale.

     In this week's LD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide the majority of changes occurred in the Lincoln Cents chart. This remains a very popular series and buyers want nice coins for the grade and will pay premiums for coins that do not have unattractive spots. The 1911 S in MS64 Brown increased to $280 Market this week. The 1912 and 1913 in MS65 Red both climbed; the 1912 is now $380 and the 1913 is $440. The 1915 in MS65 Red also jumped to a higher $700.
