Nearly 500 handpicked lots, to include rare coins, numerous high-end collections and gold nuggets, will cross the auction block in the Regency Auction VII.

This "sale is balanced with exciting rarities in a range of different denominations and values for all collectors to enjoy," said Legend-Morphy partner Laura Sperber.

Preceded by two days of lot viewing, live bidding begins 5 p.m. Pacific Time on the 22nd. Online bidding is already open at legendmorphy.hibid.com/auctions/current.

"This sale also marks the first phase of our programming upgrades," said Devin Healey, Legend-Morphy’s Director of Digital Marketing & Auction Operations. "Be sure to browse both the catalog and our website, as we have plenty of great coins for you to bid on."

Legend-Morphy’s Regency Auction VII, held in conjunction with the PCGS Members Only Show, includes rare coins like:

  • 1794 H1C PCGS MS65BN CAC
  • 1943 1C Bronze PCGS AU55 CAC
  • 1805 10C 4 Berries JR-2 PCGS MS66
  • 1864 25C PCGS PR67
  • 1887-O $1 PCGS MS65+ CAC
  • 1905 $10 PCGS MS67 CAC Ex Simpson / Hall

Headliner collections in the Regency Auction VII include:

  • The Wild West Buffalo Nickel Collection,
  • The Little Silver Collection,
  • The RYK Collection,
  • The GSA Dollar Collection

The Wild West Buffalo Nickel Collection was assembled by "an eagle eyed Buffalo Nickel collector," notes Legend-Morphy. It includes rare coins, all in original PCGS holders, that have never been resubmitted to PCGS or submitted to CAC.

The Little Silver Collection of proof three-cent silver pieces is ranked #2 on the PCGS Registry, and was assembled with the assistance of Legend Numismatics’ Laura Sperber.

"The current Collectors Universe value for this set is $175,150.00, but even with a budget of $250,000.00 it would be unlikely to even come close to recreating this set," auction details describe.

The GSA Dollar Collection includes 106 lots of Carson City Morgan Dollars. It was assembled over a period of 20 years with each silver dollar "handpicked for its color and quality."

Live bidding on May 22 will begin at 5 p.m. PT in the Sands Expo Meeting Room (#405) of the Venetian, Palazzo Resort Hotel located at 3255 S Las Vegas Blvd.
