Laura mentions that her team recently purchased the "Swagger-A" Hubert slug on behalf a customer.

What does "Swagger-A" refer to? I did a search online and couldn't find any reference to this.

Does anyone know this specific coin?



The moment we saw this coin, we quickly realized that we have never seen another like it. This “slug” has everything going for it-sharp strike, super eye appeal, the fields are semi-PL, there are no significant marks and the color is totally original. We strongly feel this coin was Under-graded. It haunted us.

This monster of a Humbert had taken residence in our minds and we had to place it. So, we took a chance and texted a long-time customer about it. Guess our enthusiasm spilled over. He agreed to buy it! We had to pay virtually what the dealer was quoting. No question we paid a world record price. Our customer was so excited that we had to fly it to them the day after it arrived in our offices. They knew based upon our long-term relationship that if we told them – “it is God’s gift to Humberts”, it is. He also knew not to be so concerned about today’s price. This is the kind of coin that will have a tremendous upside, down the road. In fact, he really bought it for his kids. It’s that kind of ideology added with a quest to buy the BEST quality and eye appeal that WILL make you money.

Working with us gets you into the best rarities in the world or the top coins for the grade. Look how the Bob Simpson coins did-and we sold him every single one! “Half dome” has close to the #1 20th Century gold sets-of which every coin he owns is CAC! The list of the monster sets we have built goes on and on. This Humbert makes us proud, and the owner will be royally rewarded one day. A good working relationship is a win-win, and that is what Legend does best.
