The Bayside Bust Half Collection features a large offering of over 300 Bust Halves with many interesting die marriages, mostly attributed to the exact Overton Variety. While many are circulated to some extent, the diversity of offerings and the overall wholesome qualities are certainly worth highlighting. Similar assortments of such affordable, extensive collections do not often enter the market, and this is certainly a highlight in this week's auction.
All lots will begin closing at 8pm EST on Sunday, March 31st. Some of the more interesting highlights from this week's sale include:
Our first highlight is an 1842-D $5 PCGS MS61 (Small Date). A scarce Dahlonega mint issue in which just 37,917 coins were minted of all varieties. Of the small date and large date varieties, the small date is more available but also a great value. Our example has flashy, original fields with fantastic eye appeal.
The final highlight is a 1925-D $20 PCGS MS64. This coin is a beautiful better date Saint that becomes incredibly tough in higher grades. Our example has lovely orange peel surfaces with nice luster throughout.
Of course there are many other highlights, so be sure to browse all lots in this exciting new sale before it closes on Sunday, March 31st.If you have any questions about coins in our auctions, or items for direct purchase, please call us at 800-776-0560, or send an email and we will get back to you immediately.
