Heritage Auctions offering rare, high-grade U.S. gold, ancient Shekel at ANA Convention Auction
1843 $2 1/2 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC.

DALLAS, TX.- The largest numismatic convention of the year, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Convention, will feature historically-important discoveries during Heritage Auctions' Aug. 2-3 Platinum Night events in Denver. The live auctions span U.S. gold, World and Ancient rarities and choice currency specimens.

"We are offering rarities not seen on the market in generations," said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. "We are confident the market will respond to the amazing variety and quality on tap."

U.S. Coins
Highlighting a stellar group of Colonial coins, the prohibitively rare 1792 Parmelee Birch Cent crosses the block in Heritage's Aug. 2 U.S. Coins Platinum Night session.

A 1652 New England Shilling XF45, PCGS Secure, CAC, is notable for being one of just eight collectible examples in private hands and a 1652 Willow Tree Sixpence, Noe 1-A, W-130, Salmon 1-A, R.6, VF20 PCGS, appears from the Don Willis Collection of U.S. Colonial Coinage.

A selection of high-proof gold ranges from an 1843 $2 1/2 PR65 Deep Cameo, PCGS – a rare, early proof and one of only five examples traced – to a 1900 $20 PR66+ Ultra Cameo, NGC. CAC, the finest certified Ultra Cameo example known to exist.

U.S. rarities also include a 1943 CENT Struck on a Bronze Planchet, MS62 Brown, NGC, which is one of just 10 to 15 specimens known to exist. As collectors know, the 1943 bronze Lincoln cent is one of the most famous and sought-after error coins of all time.

Collectors of rare Territorial Gold will see an 1851 $50 RE Humbert Fifty Dollar, Reeded Edge, 887 Thous. MS63, NGC, (the finest certified at PCGS) as well as an 1849 $5 Oregon Exchange Co. Five Dollar AU50 NGC. K-1, R.5., the rare "Beaver Money" example made famous during the great California Gold Rush.

World & Ancient Coins
Heritage's ANA World Coins & Ancient Coins Auction features a number of extraordinary ancients, including one of only four known Year 4 Quarter-Shekel, NGC (photo certificate) Choice AU 4/5 - 4/5 – by far the rarest of the silver denominations issued by the Jewish War insurgents.

An extremely rare and possibly unique Hadrian (AD 117-138). AV aureus (20mm, 7.12 gm, 6h). NGC Choice AU ? 5/5 - 5/5, will be offered as an unrecorded example of this attractive travel issue.

Choice world coin specimens range from a fabulous William III gold "Fine Work" 5 Guineas 1701 MS64, NGC, in an exceptionally rare state of preservation to an first-year gem proof Meiji gold Proof 20 Yen Year 3 (1870) PR66 Cameo NGC, and an early rarity from the Rio Mint: A João V 6400 Reis 1728/7-R AU58 NGC, displaying bold legends and date to make its auction debut at Heritage.

U.S. Currency
Heritage's Platinum Currency Auction will present the finest known 1882 $1,000 Gold Certificate, PCGS, Very Fine 35. The specimen is one of only 96,000 examples that were printed, and far fewer survived following the redemption rate ordered under the Gold Reserve Act of 1934.

One of the most coveted of all United States Currency design types, a stunning gem rainbow 1869 $20 Legal Tender, PCGS, Gem New 65PPQ, is centered perfectly and displays a gorgeous deep red seal, black design details, blue serial numbers and a deep swath of anti-counterfeiting blue ink and colored fibers cascading through the design.

The finest graded 1882 $20 Gold Certificate, PMG, Superb Gem, Uncirculated 67 EPQ, known to exist was produced for just six years before the famed "Technicolor" $20 came into favor and a wide-margined, 1869 $50 Legal Tender, PCGS, Very Fine 35, from The Yuri Solovey Collection, is desired for its stunning eye appeal and design elements. The last example offered by Heritage nearly two years ago sold for more than $223,000.

The currency auction also includes the last 1861 $500 Confederate Bill issued in Montgomery, weeks before the first shots were fired on Fort Sumter.
