Goldberg Sale Brings $9 Million|
June 13, 2013
Certified Acceptance Corporation stickered coins and world coin results helped Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles garner more than $9 million at the firm’s June 2-5 Pre-Long Beach Auction.
“We had a tremendous amount of web activity from all over the world,” Larry Goldberg said.
“Overall, we are pleased with the amount of activity and the end result of the sale,” he said. Almost 90 percent of the lots were sold and the sales realized a combined $9,138,350.
The U.S. portion of the sale was held June 2-4 and included lots from the Coltrin Family Collection and the Arden Collection.
“I’m not surprised how well the CAC material did, but some of the coins without CAC stickers performed quite well,” Ira Goldberg said.
One of the coins without a CAC sticker, a Numismatic Guaranty Corporation MS-67 1839 No Drapery half dollar, brought in an astounding $138,000, he said.
Larry Goldberg added, “Higher end rarities and quality coins brought great prices. The only weaknesses we saw was the generic gold and Bust dollars, definitely some softness there.”
The world and ancient sale, held on June 4 and 5, saw some surprising prices realized.
Lot 4829, a Hong Kong dollar, was one of them.
“The consignor paid less than $100 for the coin. We sent it to NGC for grading. It was graded MS-63, estimated at $2,000, brought in a whopping $25,000,” Ira Goldberg said.
