On March 16, 2017, Legend’s Premier Session Internet Auction for March closed after realizing an impressive total of $373,368. Throughout the 13 days the sale was open, the auction experienced strong bidding activity. A large variety of coins were offered, including the ever-popular high-end bust half dollars.
One of the top lots proved to be the 1C 1877 PCGS MS64 BN CAC, which soared past the $7,000 estimate to bring in $9,350. Not far behind was a 50C 1814 PCGS AU55 CAC. This fine coin was estimated at $4,000, but ended up reaching $6,325.

“The results show yet again that you do not need to have thousands of coins to have big results. Our boutique style auctions, which net strong results in our Regency Auctions, have translated into a great model for our internet only auctions as well—provide hand selected, high-end quality coins with accurate photos and descriptions, and the bidders will show up in spades,” said Julie Abrams, president of Legend Auctions.
