1792 Copper Disme brings $211,500 to lead $23+ million Heritage Long Beach Auctions
1792 P10C Disme, Judd-10, Pollock-11, XF40 PCGS Secure.

DALLAS, TX.- A 1792 Copper Disme XF40 PCGS Secure, Ex: Wurtzbach-Partrick, one of the most storied coins in American Numismatics, realized $211,500 as the top offering in Heritage Auctions' Sept. 17-20 Long Beach Expo U.S. Coins Signature® Auction.

"This coin has the distinction of having been the 1914 ANS Exhibition Plate Coin," said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. "It's simply magnificent and well-deserving of being the lead coin in this very diverse and highly successful auction."

A very rare pattern coin, in the form of a superb 1877 $50 Fifty Dollar "Half Union" PR63+ NGC, also proved to be one of the principal highlights of the auction, rising amongst spirited bidding to finish the auction with an impressive $176,250 final price realized.

Bidding was also intense for the 1799 'No Berries' Silver Dollar MS65 NGC being offered in the auction, representative of the true rarity of Gem Uncirculated Heraldic Eagle dollars. It proved to be quite popular with a final price of $152,750.

"This coin is often underestimated by even experienced collectors and series specialists, a function of the larger mintages and the longer duration of the series," said Rohan. "A price realized like this, however, shows that this particular coin was most certainly not underestimated."

A classic 19th century gold rarity, an 1875 $5 PR64 Cameo NGC — one of only nine proofs believed known in private hands — realized an impressive $141,000 while collectors of rare gold took specific note of a gold 1905 1C Indian Cent — struck on a Quarter Eagle planchet — in MS64 PCGS, a breathtaking error and one of just five Indian cents known on a gold planchet, which brought $105,750.

Further highlights include, but are not limited to:

• 1838 25C MS67 NGC: Single-finest certified example and Registry Set essential. Realized $82,250.

• 1793 1C Liberty Cap VF35 PCGS Secure: With the famous bisecting crack, the eighth finest known. Realized $76,375.

• 1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime MS66 PCGS: Only two numerically finer known at PCGS. Realized $73,438.

• 1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific 50 Dollar Octagonal MS62 NGC CAC: Venerable Octagonal issue, one of just 645 pieces distributed. Realized $70,500

• 1920-S $10 MS62 NGC: Key series rarity, especially elusive in High Grade. Realized $70,500
