Lot 266 - 1851 $50 Humbert Slug PCGS MS61 880

Denver, PA – Legend-Morphy Rare Coin Auctions is headed back to The Venetian/Palazzo in Las Vegas for their fifth Regency Auction and sixth sale overall. The auction will once again be held during the PCGS Members Only Show, with live bidding starting at 6:00 p.m. PT on December 19, 2013.

Julie Abrams, president of Legend-Morphy, is confident that "The Regency Auction V will be one to remember. The number of fresh-to-the-market coins is substantial and we are honored that Legend Numismatics' longtime friend Phil Flannagan chose to consign his Territorial Collection to us. The quality of these coins is second to none and we predict them to sell for record prices. The 1851 Humbert PCGS MS61 Slug is really like nothing we've ever seen."

The Flannagan Territorial Collection includes:

  • 1861 $2.5 PCGS AU50 Clark Gruber Ex Eliasberg
  • 1861 $5 PCGS AU53 Clark Gruber Ex Eliasberg
  • 1861 $10 PCGS AU58 Clark Gruber Ex Eliasberg

Legend-Morphy partner Laura Sperber went on to say that "although this incredible collection consists of only ten coins, each coin represents a significant piece of numismatic history. Even non-territorial collectors should make a point to view them."

Another highlight of this sale is the 1797 Collection, an outstanding group of coins consigned to Legend-Morphy's Regency Auction V by an exclusive customer of Legend Numismatics. Sperber claims "there are so many standouts in the collection that it's hard for us to even pick a favorite."
