Did you know…
…Part II of the magnificent Twin Leaf Collection is on the auction schedule!
The Twin Leaf Collection stands tall among the greatest cabinets of Middle and Late Date large cents ever formed. At its peak of completion, it was the finest collection of this specialty. We were honored to have been selected to sell this magnificent holding in our July 2015 Baltimore sale where it was a highlight of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Summer Expo. It included nearly every Newcomb number, many Condition Census pieces, and more than 50 Proofs from 1817 to 1857 – an unparalleled selection of these rarities that are seldom included in even the finest collections. It also included the extremely rare patterns of 1868, in nickel and copper.
The Twin Leaf Collection was much larger than one sale, however! The collector acquired not only particularly fine specimens of each Newcomb number, but also focused on die states, resulting in a healthy number of duplicates throughout the Newcomb series, including several of the rare Proofs.
As with the July 2015 sale, these duplicates comprised many important coins from great collections, and a fine selection of nearly 500 of them will highlight our official auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo in Baltimore this March.
Please contact John Pack today to be sure you are on the list to receive this important catalog, via email or call 800-488-4646, ext 258. If large cents are your specialty, many fine coins await your consideration!
