1804 Dollar Brings $2.6+ Million

June 18, 2018

     The Heritage Auctions sale was a major attraction at the just completed Long Beach Expo. The highlighted 1804 Dollar in PCGS PR62 drew an amazing high bid of $2,640,000, although some may consider this a bargain, it was last sold in 2013 for nearly $3.9 million. Also highlighted was a 1793 Chain Cent AMERICA with Periods in PCGS MS65 Brown CAC that realized $990,000. This coin also sold for less than its last sale; back in 2012 it brought $1,380,000. Both of these coins sold in previous Heritage Auctions. Listed below are some of the other highlights from this Long Beach Sale.
