Heritage Signature Auction at Inaugural Houston Money Show of the Southwest Pushes Past $5 Million Heritage Auction Galleries' inaugural Signature Auction at the Money Show of the Southwest took place in Houston, November 29-30, 2007.
Lot 61401: 1915-S Panama-Pacific $50 Round, MS64 NGC
The ambitious commemorative coin program spearheaded by Farran Zerbe was out of reach for all but the wealthiest patrons of the Exposition.
From The Fleur Wales-Baillie Collection, benefiting the Khumbula Thina Trust.
Lot 61493: 1855 Gold $1, MS67 PCGS
The 1855 Type Two Gold Dollar is eagerly pursued by type and date collectors, and a Superb Gem is incredibly rare; NGC has graded just five coins in MS67 and PCGS just four, with none finer at either service (10/07).
From The Pearl E. Pemberton Collection.
Lot 61544: 1855-C $2.50, MS62 NGC
A single die variety is known (16-I) of this, the second lowest mintage (3,677 pieces) of any Charlotte Mint quarter eagle. NGC and PCGS have certified only 17 examples in Uncirculated grades, some of which likely represent resubmissions.
