During the month of July, CAC approved coins fared well in live auctions in Dallas and Las Vegas, in addition to performing in many Internet sales. Here are a dozen examples, which were selected from a large number of results that could have been listed.

1. On July 3, GreatCollections sold a CAC approved NGC certified Proof-66 1883 ‘No Cents’ Liberty Head nickel for $1019.70. On May 3, Heritage sold a PCGS certified Proof-66 1883 ‘No Cents’ nickel without a CAC sticker for $690.

2. On July 15, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved, NGC graded MS-65 1854 Three Cent Silver for $3960. On Dec. 19, 2021, Heritage sold a PCGS graded MS-65 1854 Three Cent Silver without a CAC sticker for $1801.20, less than half as much.

3. On July 15, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved AU-53 (fifty-three) grade 1838-O ‘No Stars’ half dime for $8100. AU grade 1838-O half dimes are not often offered. On April 23, 2020, Heritage sold a PCGS graded AU-58 (fifty-eight) 1838-O ‘No Stars’ half dime without a CAC sticker for $6000. A CAC approved AU-53 coin thus brought much more than a non-CAC, PCGS graded AU-58 (fifty-eight) 1838-O half dime. While market levels for these have increased a little from April 2020 to July 2022, this increase could not account for a large part of the premium paid for this CAC approved half dime.

4. On July 15, in successive lots, Heritage auctioned two PCGS graded MS-66 1892-O quarters. The CAC approved 1892-O realized $5040 and the 1892-O without a CAC sticker realized $2880. The CAC approved MS-66 1892-O quarter thus realized 75% more than the non-CAC, PCGS graded MS-66 1892-O quarter

6. On July 24, GreatCollections sold a CAC approved, PCGS certified MS-65RD 1911-S Lincoln cent for $14,726.80. Four second earlier, at 4:11:24 PM Pacific Time, GreatCollections sold a PCGS certified MS-65RD 1911-S Lincoln cent without a CAC sticker for $2064.38. Both coins were designated by PCGS as having ‘full red color’ (RD). The CAC approved MS-65RD 1911-S cent thus brought more than seven times as much as its non-CAC, PCGS graded counterpart.

7. On July 24, GreatCollections sold a CAC approved MS-65 grade 1927-D Peace silver dollar for $6660.50. On July 17, GreatCollections sold a PCGS graded MS-65 1927-D Peace dollar without a CAC sticker for $3937.50.

8. On July 24, a CAC approved XF-40 (forty) grade 1928 Peace silver dollar sold on eBay for $361.57. On June 15, Heritage sold a PCGS graded AU-50 (fifty) 1928 Peace dollar without a CAC sticker for $300. A CAC approved XF-40 grade coin thus sold for 20% more than a non-CAC, PCGS graded AU-50 (fifty) 1928 dollar.

9. On July 24, Apmex sold a CAC approved NGC graded AU-58 1861 $20 gold coin for $3750 on eBay. On Dec. 16, 2021, Heritage sold a PCGS graded AU-58 1861 $20 gold coin without a CAC sticker for $2640. Although these increased in value between December 2021 and July 2022, this increase would not account for much of the difference in price between $3750 and $2640.
