Coins approved by Certified Acceptance Corporation, or CAC, outperformed other certified coins in a live auction in Beverly Hills and in internet sales during December. Here are 10 examples of CAC coins which were selected from a large number of results that could have been listed.

  1. On December 2, GreatCollections sold a CAC-approved AU58 1832 half dollar for $677.25. On November 14, Heritage sold a PCGS-graded AU58 1832 half dollar without a CAC sticker for $516. On November 11, however, Heritage sold eleven AU58 1832 Small Letters half dollars. Eight of those without CAC stickers realized prices ranging from $408 to $552. The three that were CAC approved sold for $552, $720 and $1,560, respectively. On average, the prices for CAC-approved, certified AU58 1832 halves were much higher.
  2. On December 2, GreatCollections sold a CAC-approved MS66 1936-S Walking Liberty half dollar for $984.38. While prices realized for non-CAC MS66 1936-S half dollars varied considerably during 2018, each result was significantly less than $984.38. On October 30, Stack’s-Bowers sold a PCGS-graded MS-66 1936-S half dollar without a CAC sticker for $576. Heritage sold a PCGS-graded MS66 1936-S half dollar without a CAC sticker for $720 on August 19 and another for $660 on April 29.
  3. On December 2, Great Collections sold a CAC-approved MS67 1944 Walking Liberty half dollar for $818.44. On June 27, Stack’s-Bowers sold a different CAC-approved MS67 1944 half dollar for $720. Non-CAC coins have been bringing much lower dollar amounts. On November 21, Heritage sold a PCGS-graded MS-67 1944 half dollar for $384. On September 26, Stack’s-Bowers sold a PCGS-graded MS67 1944 half dollar for $480. The CAC-approved MS-67 1944 half dollars brought at least 50% more.
  4. On December 9, GreatCollections sold an NGC-graded MS66 1934-D dime with a CAC sticker for $258.75. On July 22, GreatCollections sold a PCGS-graded MS66 1934-D dime without a CAC sticker for $103.50. On July 4, Heritage similarly sold a PCGS-graded MS66 1934-D dime without a CAC sticker for $104.
  5. On December 13 in the same Heritage auction in Beverly Hills, there were two PCGS-graded MS66 1858 Large Letters Flying Eagle cents. The CAC-stickered coin realized $11,400 just seconds after the coin without a CAC sticker brought $6,300.
  6. On December 13, Heritage sold two PCGS-certified Proof 67 1916 Buffalo nickels in consecutive lots. The nickel with a CAC sticker realized $9,000, more than twice as much as the nickel without a CAC sticker that brought $4,320.
  7. On December 13, Heritage auctioned a CAC-approved MS65 1919-D Buffalo nickel for $7,800. Heritage auctioned non-CAC, PCGS-graded MS65 1919-D nickels for $3,840 on September 9 and for $3,360 on June 17. The coins without CAC stickers each brought less than half as much as the just-auctioned, CAC-approved MS65 1919-D nickel.
