1875 S Twenty Cent Piece in PCGS MS67 from Regency 50
Now that Regency 50 has closed, I think this is fair game to discuss. I had my eye on the 1875 S twenty cent piece in PCGS MS67, not as a potential purchase, but I wanted to see if it would attract a bid. The same coin sold at Heritage in April 2021 as an NGC MS65* for $9,024. Legend had an estimate of $45,000-$50,000 on the lot and required a bid of $27,000 (or thereabouts) to open. Perhaps predictably, the lot was passed. I was curious to see what 9 months and a fairly nice plastic makeover would do for this beauty if it were allowed to open with a low bid and no reserve. Any guesses where this would have cleared?
