The Gentleman's Collection Consignment - June 18, 2015
Flowing Hair and Draped Bust Dollars
Flowing Hair, Draped Bust and Capped Bust Halves
The Gentleman's Collection offering is indeed a special event at Gerry Fortin Rare Coins. These early type coins have been off the market ranging from 15 to 20 years and quietly held in bank boxes. When first handling this collection, one immediately notes the old PCGS and NGC holders and the conservative grading. There are incredible original pieces in the first installment from the Gentleman's Collection including the 1795 2 Leaves Flowing Hair dollar graded NGC VF25 and approved by CAC and the 1797 Small Eagle Draped Bust dollar housed in NGC EF45 holder, also with CAC approval. This old time collector appreciated well struck early silver pieces with originality and eye appeal. Some piece may have some defects that are frowned upon in today's world of technical grading but still offer good value for their overall appearance.
