Magnificent "Southwest Collection" Type Coins Shine in Heritage's February 2008 Long Beach Signature An eye-appealing collection of gem-quality rare coins, valued at more than four million dollars, anchors the Official Auction of the February 2008 Long Beach Coin Expo
News-Antique.com - Jan 15,2008 - Dallas, TX. An eye-appealing collection of gem-quality rare coins, valued at more than four million dollars, anchors the Official Auction of the February 2008 Long Beach Coin Expo, presented by Heritage Auction Galleries. The auction dates are February 13-16, 2008, and the auction will be held at the Long Beach (CA) Convention Center.
"The Southwest Collection is absolutely mesmerizing," commented Heritage President Greg Rohan. "The quality of each individual coin places it among the finest known, and their eye-appeal continues across design type after design type. The premium quality Mint State and Proof Type coins in the Southwest Collection are a treat to behold, but the consignor also often chose better dates - note the 1916-D Mercury Dime graded MS65 Full Bands NGC, or his 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter in MS66 Full Head NGC for those types! Collectors who demand the finest will need to include these wonderful pieces in their deliberations."
"The Southwest Collection was meticulously assembled by a connoisseur of cultural artifacts of many types," concluded Rohan. "In all of his diverse collecting interests, this serious collector has demonstrated an ability to find the best, as well as the willingness to 'pay the price' to obtain the best. A prominent and successful executive, the same dedication that he brought to his business endeavors is evident in all of his collections."
