In Auction 41 Stephen Album Rare Coins established a new record for the company totaling $2.14 million. While all areas performed well, the Chinese, Indian, and World Coin sections were standouts and many items went for multiples of their estimates.
CNG’s Feature Auction 118 was highlighted by coins from important collections as the Archytus Collection of ancient coinage from the Indian subcontinent, and the collection of Dr. Jay Galst with ancient Judaean and related coinages. The auction more than doubled its pre-sale estimate.
Heritage Auctions’ ANA World’s Fair of Money Auction did not take place in Chicago but at the company’s premises. The result is more than impressive: the sale achieved a total result of over $68 million and US coins saw a perfect sell-through rate of 100%, including a 1861 Paquet Double Eagle sold for $7.2 million.
