1793 Wreath Cent: $399,500 in Heritage's $46+ million ANA Auctions
One of the Five Finest 1793 Wreath Cents.

DALLAS, TX.- A 1793 1C Wreath Cent, Vine and Bars, MS66 Red and Brown PCGS CAC, the finest known Sprung Die example and one of the five finest 1793 Wreath Cents known overall, realized $399,500 as the top lot in Heritage Auctions Aug. 12-16, 2015, Summer ANA Convention offerings in Chicago, IL.

“This is just simply a magnificent and historic coin,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. “It set the stage for what was an incredibly successful week overall for Heritage. We posted more than $46 million altogether, across three different auction venues, throughout the week.”

A rare, low-mintage key, an 1856-O $20 AU55 NGC Ex: Duquesne, long considered the rarest coin from the New Orleans Mint — and one of just 23 known examples — became the delight of a present day collector with a total price realized of $340,750, while another New Orleans classic rarity, in the form of an 1854-O $20 AU55 NGC Ex: Duquesne shone equally bright as the 1856 example, as it brought a total price realized of $340,750.

U.S. highlights continued with an 1838-O 50C SP50 PCGS Secure, a classic Reeded Edge rarity and one of just nine traced, realized $293,750 amidst spirited bidding. A magnificent Matte Proof 1937 Boone Half Dollar Set PR63 NGC, believed to be unique, a marquee offering for the classic commemorative specialist, did not disappoint as it soared to a final price realized of $223,250.

Further highlights include, but are not limited to:

• 1879 $4 Flowing Hair PR65 Cameo PCGS Secure CAC: Realized $202,625.

• 1879 $4 Flowing Hair PR65 PCGS CAC: Realized $199,750.
