March 1, 2019

In addition to faring well in Internet sales, CAC approved coins outperformed other certified coins in a live auction at the Long Beach Expo in California. Here are ten examples, which were selected from a large number of results that could have been listed.

  1. On Feb. 3, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved MS-63-Brown 1829 half cent for $720. On Feb. 24, GreatCollections sold a PCGS certified MS-63BN half cent without a CAC sticker for $522.65.
  2. On Feb. 3, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved Proof-66 certified 1869 Shield nickel for $1140. In December 2018, Heritage auctioned a PCGS certified Proof-66 1869 Shield nickel without a CAC sticker for $660. On Feb. 15, 2019 GreatCollections sold a different PCGS certified Proof-66 1869 Shield nickel without a CAC sticker for $815.62.
  3. On Feb. 3, at a Long Beach Expo Heritage auctioned a CAC approved Proof-66 1937 Buffalo nickel for $1020. At the FUN Convention in January 2019, Heritage auctioned two non-CAC PCGS certified Proof-65 1937 nickels for $840 and $810 respectively.
  4. On Feb. 3, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved Good-06 grade 1916-D Mercury dime for $960. In November, Heritage auctioned a PCGS graded Good-06 1916-D without a CAC sticker for $840.

  5. On Feb. 3, Heritage auctioned a NGC graded MS-66 1929-S quarter with a CAC sticker for $660. On Dec. 14, 2018, Heritage auctioned a PCGS graded MS-66 1929-S quarter without a CAC sticker, for $540. So, the NGC coin, with CAC approval brought 22% more than a corresponding PCGS graded coin without a sticker. The $540 result was not an unusually low price for a non-CAC MS-66 1929-S. Another non-CAC PCGS graded 1929-S quarter brought $480 and another CAC approved MS-66 grade 1929-S quarter went for $780 in the same Heritage auction in October 2018.

On Jan. 14, Heritage auctioned a PCGS graded MS-67 1886 Morgan silver dollar with a CAC sticker for $1080. Non-CAC MS-67 grade 1886 Morgans have been bringing much less in Heritage sales. On Jan. 14, two non-CAC coins each brought $576. On Jan. 9, a PCGS graded MS-67 1886 Morgan sold for $720. On Jan. 24, Stack’s-Bowers sold a different PCGS graded MS-67 1886 Morgan, also without a CAC sticker, for $840.
