Heritage Auctions' Orlando FUN currency event realizes $8.4+ Million
The finest of three known $20 Nevada Red Seals sold for $66,125.00.

DALLAS, TX.- The finest of three known $20 Nevada Red Seal notes, a $20 1902 Red Seal Fr. 641 The Nixon NB Ch. # (P)8424, by far the greatest note to emerge from The Platte River Cash Hoard, brought $66,125 as the top note in Heritage Auctions Jan. 5-10 Signature® Orlando FUN Currency Auction, which realized an impressive $8.4+ million total. All prices include 15% Buyer’s Premium.

“The Platte River Hoard is without a doubt a great currency find,” said Allen Mincho, Director of Currency Auctions at Heritage, “and this $20 Red Seal is easily the best of that significant bunch and a reminder that significant rarities are still awaiting discovery even a century after their issue. A mere 14 Red Seals have been reported from all the banks in Nevada combined, and – obviously – collectors put a premium on them.”

The Currency section of the FUN auction saw more than 3,340 bidders vying for 3,717 lots – translating into a 94.5% sell-through rate by value. The US Coins section realized approximately $64 million, with a 93.7% sell-through by value. World Coins brought in another $10.7 million at the New York International Convention, lifting Heritage’s New Year’s Week’s total to well above $75 million.

A very attractive Binion $10000, a Fr. 2231-B $10000 1934 Federal Reserve Note, PCGS Apparent Choice About New 55 – one of 100 $10,000 notes that appeared in the Binion's Hotel $1 Million display in Las Vegas’s classic Glitter Gulch area – proved very popular with collectors on its way to realizing $63,250.

A $1,000,000 U.S. Treasury Bond of 1963, PCGS New 61, the second bond issued to the First National Bank of Boston that was repatriated from Cuba represented a significant piece of U.S. numismatic history, as well as of 20th century political history, as it realized $54,625. A rare and lovely Winston, NC $10 1882 Brown Back, Fr. 490, from The Wachovia NB Ch. # 2425 was the subject of collector interest to the tune of $48,875, while a Serial Number A999999A to A000001B unique rollover pair of $5 bills – New York, NY - $5 1929 Ty. 1 The Chase NB Ch. # 2370 – realized $44,563.
