Heritage Auction Galleries September Long Beach Currency Signature Auction Approaching $11 Million

The Official Auctions of the September 2007 Long Beach Coin Expo were held by Heritage Auction Galleries, and included Signature Auctions of U.S. currency ($10,486,434), U.S. coins ($11,311,996), ancient and world coins ($3,210,026), and U.S. tokens and medals ($598,946). When proceeds from Final Session Auctions of U.S. currency, U.S. coins, and ancient and world coins are concluded, plus Post Auction Buys from all events are added, total prices realized are expected to approach $27 million. This was Heritage’s 61st Official Auction at Long Beach. All lot descriptions, images, and prices realized for the eleven thousand-plus lots that sold in Long Beach are currently posted at HA.com.

“Heritage’s Long Beach Currency auctions continue to grow in scope and collector support,” noted Currency Director Len Glazer. “The Legal Tender notes from the Dr. Edward & Joanne Dauer Collection were pursued by a large number of bidders seeking to own some of the finest and rarest notes on the market.”

“The market continues to reward originality and rarity,” added Currency Director Allen Mincho. “Across the board, from Colonials to Nationals, collectors are willing to pay record-setting prices to obtain the rarities that will help define the next generation of great collections.”
