Legend-Morphy brought its A-game, offering a carefully handpicked selection of coins in a boutique-style, 334-lot sale held in association with the PCGS Members Only Coin Show.


Collectors liked what they saw and bid aggressively, both before and during the event.

"The pre-auction online bidding activity greatly exceeded our expectations," said Legend-Morphy’s president, Julie Abrams. "That, combined with heavy attendance at the preview, gave us every reason to believe the auction would be a success."
