I've said it before, that is the greatest collection of all time bar none.
I went to the ANA to see that collection last summer. It did not disappoint. I would make a special trip to see it again. Amazing collection. Thanks for posting the video.

Thanks for the video.... I have watched part, I will return to complete it. What beautiful coins and the narrative is interesting as well. Cheers, RickO
Just amazing---and carefully selected over a long period of time
Very nice....thanks for posting that Slammer!
Your hobby is supposed to be your therapy, not the reason you need it.
well there is NO way those of us visiting this thread should come and go w/o posting just 1 of our favorites either from the vid or the collection in general. i haven't watched it all yet and the 1797 Half was a contender along with a couple of those Master Coin large cents (i hope the eac member inside me forgives me) but i'll just take it easy and settle on this baby!
it is the max resolution and i take no responsibility if you are injured in any way while viewing it it its' maximum size pleasure.

since i did watch the whole vid before going to bed (and slipping burfle's amazing new thread on the 1796 1c in) i will comment, for those whom haven't but want to walk away with some tasty new nusmimatic lingo and intricate facts, watch it all the way through. you'll get something good throughout the vid besides viewing some astonishing american numismatics.
It's a long video at over an hour but worth the watch.
I have been speeding up longer videos to save time. Most can still be absorbed at 1.5 to 1.75 times normal speed for me. Did this one at 1.75x in the settings. Plus you can always go back and watch a segment slower if needed.

Great video and great job by JD - I learned quite a few things. @LanceNewmanOCC, I found it very difficult to narrow down to just one to highlight. How can you not consider the King of American Coins?
And of course there is the 1907 UHR with the "ASG" graff- errrr- pedigree marker on the edge..
But allow me to highlight something a little bit more modest, the 1799 Draped Bust dollar pedigreed to Col. Green and E.P. Newman. In the video, JD refers to it as "the finest Bust dollar in existence. I've never seen anything close."
By the way, did anyone stay until the end to see David Lisot show off his pandemic facial hair growth with the Hulk Hogan-style fu manchu?
appreciate you taking the time to pick one! the selection is delectable and make a rather nice post at that.
hmm. the 1804 $1 (34?) is obviously an amazing coin(s), controversy notwithstanding, but taking the financials out of the equation is how i was attempting to make my choice and i didn't have the discipline to make it all the way through the video before sharing one of the favs and there were MANY; despite this not being near the first time this set has been shared here.
i really like the ya, umm, graf ASG edge hand-engraved? UHR. it would be neat if we had some more pieces like that from the designers/engravers. not a lot mind you, just a couple few from each year/type. maybe they'd be less special, perhaps more? a rather modern piece by the standards of the top coins in the collection.
first-year type (or even just 18th century) for out country in SP (master coins in gem surviving condition) is nothing short of extraordinary so that had some strong influence of what to choose as my pseudo-fav this time. would probably be a different coin in a different thread. (it was just an excuse to get people hopefully posting some of these seemingly unreal specimens)
perhaps a top 2-3 would be more effective but then again, we're not chopping fingers off here if people do post more.
gotta love a collection where someone can even jokingly refer to the 1799 $1 as modest by comparison to the top coins. - what a coin!!! (wonderful slab shot)
i didn't watch the last few minutes after JD was done but i wondered what was there. nice find.
what the #^&#. it is private now?
