An update of Abe's Collection:

A large part of Abe's (bear) collection was sold in the Feb. 13th  Legend Morphy auction in Las Vegas   Auction number 6 

While not the entire collection was auctioned, off a good portion was. Missing from this auction
were the moderns and one of my personal favorite the 1837 Bust Half (Reeded edge) ....PCGS MS-65 CAC
I wonder where this coin resides as it is stunning and the cornerstone coin in any great collection.

Even though the coins were not held for the 20 year time frame as Abe wanted and sold just two short years later I feel that the prices realized were reasonable with no major losses to mention of.


Below is the final auction prices for the coins:

1. 10C 1881 PR67 CAM CAC $7050
2. 25C 1896 PR67 DCAM CAC $9987.50
3. 25C 1918 66+ FH CAC $7931.25
4. 50C 1897 PR67 DCAM CAC $16,450
5. 50C 1916 66+ CAC $7343.75
6. $1 1883 PR65 CAM CAC $8812.5
7. $1 1881-S 67PL CAC $2115.00
8. $2.5 1896 MS66 CAC $4112.50
9. $10 1904-O MS65 CAC $28,200


If anyone has information on the remainder of Abe's collection please let me know.
And if I find out more I ill post it.
