The rare coin convention circuit is on an early autumn break, not be awoken again until the Whitman Baltimore Winter Expo on November 9th through the 11th. One area of potential excitement for both dealers and collectors in the interim is the sale of the 9th part of the epochal Eric P. Newman Collection. To be sold by Heritage on November 1st through the 3rd, the sale features 440 lots. 200 of the lots are Colonials, an area Newman has spent significant time studying, researching, and writing about. The clear standout pieces are the rare offering of both an original Confederate cent and one of the four original Confederate half dollars. Both of these incredibly historic pieces are making their first public auction appearance. There are a number of appealing and original type coins, including yet another beautifully toned 1796 quarter, this one graded NGC/CAC MS64+.
THOUSANDS OF NEW VALUES ADDED TO WEB SITE
Here at CDN, we have been busy adding a bundle of additional pricing to our online price guide. We feel that it is important for us to remind subscribers to continually check the price guide using the dedicated address www.coinprices.com. Virtually all of these new pries will not appear in the printed sheets because of space limitations. Many of the most-requested pricing additions from the past, such as MS61 and MS62 Morgan and Peace dollars, AU58 for many early types in the Bust and Seated denominations, and XF45 can be found. We are also in the process of adding pricing for higher grade modern (post-1964) coinage. Some of this which has already been added include Washington quarters and Lincoln cents.
