DALLAS, Texas – When the hammer last falls in Heritage Auctions’

Prestwick Collection

The Prestwick Collection of Carson City Coins reflects the owner’s appreciation for the Prestwick Golf Club in Scotland, with its legendary place in the annals of golf, and the heritage of Carson City mint in the numismatic field . Considered by many to be the “real home” of the British Open, the venue hosted the first 12 Opens, starting in 1860, as well as 12 more Opens in the following years. The Carson City Mint currency lasted much of the same era and was a microcosm of the Old West numismatic era until it was replaced by other places as well.

The Prestwick Collection includes 61 sets of Carson City coins, including several classic Western rarities in particularly high grades. The shipper of these coins has played Prestwick several times and greatly enjoyed his time collecting distinguished coins from the legendary Nevada Mint, including, but not limited to:

Pacific Rim Collection

The Pacific Rim collection is made up entirely of impressive American motifs, of which 31 will be offered in the Premier session, and another 16 in the afternoon floor session.

Overton specialists will want to investigate several outstanding half-dollars, including an exceptional half-dollar certified MS65 PCGS 1809 O-107, which surpasses the condition census for the variety and dazzles the eye with its fantastic Gem surface quality.

NE Lincoln Collection

This collection is at the origin of the curiosity of the sender, who discovers in his pocket coins which he finds fascinating at the beginning of his adolescence. This initial interest blossomed when he discovered a local coin store, where he found fascinating copper coins. As his interest grew, he focused on rarer certified coins. He then decided to broaden the scope of his collection when he concluded that it made sense to own a wider selection of American coins rather than just a few rare rarities. It has been collected by denomination, type and mint to reflect different periods in American history; in doing so, he gathered a treasure that now includes key issues, rare varieties, patterns and better dated coppers, silvers and golds. Selections from the NE Lincoln collection can be found in the regular ground session and Signature® Internet online session of this auction; Highlights of the collection include, but are not limited to:
