Anyone win anything tonight?

Some very strong prices for nice looking coins that have been off the market.

There were some good deals if you were looking, too 👀

    That 1805/4 O-103 is a seriously awesome coin. Crazy overdate. And it's a nice coin. It brought in $14,400! Over twice the pcgs price guide.

    A little surprised that F12 CAC 1794 Half brought in $10,800. The rest of the 94's did pretty well too. Maybe the novelty of the horde is wearing off.

    Successful transactions with: wondercoin, Tetromibi, PerryHall, PlatinumDuck, JohnMaben/Pegasus Coin & Jewelry, CoinFlip, and coinlieutenant.

    A couple of rarities that I needed, 1806 O-126, 4th of 11 known, less than half the price of when it sold in 2006 and 2008. And 1795 O-120 R-6, PCGS will need to adjust the price guide of $7500 to the realized $2040.

    Unusual cataloging, some extreme rarities were not attributed such as lot 91008 which is 1795 O-123a with 9 known for the die marriage. Also 1794 O-102.

    I bid on a bunch of 1795s, but got blown out of the water. Strong bidding.

    I won the 1832 o-117 in PCGS XF45. Deceptively tough coin and it’s pretty and original. Can’t wait to get it.

    Several ... the 19-101 in P55cac (see your PM) is probably the creme de le creme of my pickings

    Some went high, some went super high crazy money (in my opinion) ... but overall I think they were mostly solid to strong prices, wth even a few bargains from what I could tell.

  • I picked up the 1818 “O-106”....that wasn’t really a 106 🙃.... but I wasn’t the only one to notice based on what it went for.

    Nice o-115. Looks like a pretty early die state.

    The spacing on the date- especially with the last eight on that 1818 is neat.

    I was drooling on this image for a bit. Strong money but worth it if you can afford the splurge. This one has it all.

    I was in until the end for the Bearded Goddess….My last bid was at $8600, it went all in at over $10,000! PCGS was $7,000. Real nice example. I did pick up a lot of coins (too embarrassed to say how many) but there were some real deals. When I get them I will be thinning my herd as many were upgrades to what I had.
