“We are extremely honored to offer The B.S.T. Collection of U.S. Type Coins
in our official Central States
Regency Auction!” said Jessica Berkman, president of Legend Rare Coin
Auctions. “We have not had a
selection of early American type coins like this since our October 2020
Regency Auction which featured
the famed Bruce Morelan Collection. The market today is stronger than it
was two and a half years ago,
and the demand for Gem grade type coins is insatiable! We know this
collection, featured in one of the
premier auction venues of the numismatic calendar, will attract very strong
attention from the collector
“The collection’s name is derived from the name of the classic American
band, Blood, Sweat, & Tears,
that combined jazz and rock,” explained Laura Sperber, founder of Legend
Rare Coin Auctions and
Legend Numismatics, “taking inspiration from their wide range of musical
styles, the collector felt a type
set would be a great numismatic pursuit. The collector also likes to say
‘he put his blood, sweat, and
tears’ into building his world class collection!”
“The collector had a particular standard that he instructed us to use as we sought coins from dealer contacts and out of auctions,” continued Ms. Sperber. “While his standard is hard to put into words, you can see when you look at the coins, it all comes back around to high quality, originality, and eye appeal.”
Highlights of the collection will be on display at table 643 at the March 2023 Whitman Baltimore Expo, as well as during full lot viewing opportunities at the upcoming PCGS Members Only Show March 28-29 and the Central States Numismatic Society Convention, April 25-27. Lot viewing will also be available by appointment in the Legend Rare Coin Auctions’ New Jersey offices.
