“Heritage thanks our friends Adrian Crane and Brandon Kelley for entrusting us to auction the inventory of Anaconda Rare Coins at the Summer FUN without reserve,” commented Heritage President Greg Rohan.
“Most of the remaining assets of Anaconda Rare Coins, established in 1999, are expected to be sold on eBay in a ten-day, unreserved auction beginning on Thursday, June 26th, 2008 and ending Sunday, July 6th, 2008. For details visit www.AnacondaRareCoins.com.”
Highlights from the Anaconda Rare Coin Inventory, Summer FUN Signature® Auction
An amazing Barber quarter, a coin that the connoisseur will appreciate, with exceptional contrast between the lustrous design elements and deeply mirrored fields; none certified finer.
The two-year (1796 & 1797) type Draped Bust Small Eagle half dollars come in four varieties; the 1796 O-101 displays 15 obverse stars, while the O-102 has 16 stars.
There is currently no accurate Census of proof 1836 Reeded Edge half dollars in existence, but a reasonable estimate is that fewer than 20 such coins exist at all grade levels, with only two or three Gem quality pieces known.
