Saints Lead Heritage Auction at FUN

January 13, 2020

       While dealer activity was very brisk on the FUN bourse floor, Heritage Auctions perhaps stole the show with another successful sale. Rare Saint Gaudens led the way with extremely strong performances on many high grade rarities. Expectedly, the top seller was the 1927 D $20 Gold St. Gaudens in PCGS MS65+ CAC which sold for $2,160,000, a slight premium over the current NumisMedia CAC value. This coin was previously owned by Dr. Steven Duckor and was in the most recent collection of Rollo Fox. The PCGS population report list an additional five coins in MS66 and one in MS67; however, three of the MS66 coins are in museums.

       The metals faltered after tensions between the United States and Iran diminished last week, which allowed buyers an opportunity to jump into the market at lower levels. Currently Gold is $1,550 and Silver is $18. Again watch for major adjustments before making any sizable trades.
