$161,000 for the tax year 1796

The very first Heritage Auctions Signature coin sale took place in Beverly Hills, California, and received a bid of $161,000 for a quarter from the year 1796. It was held on November 8-10.

It was reported by the company that the auction brought in a total of about seven million dollars. The prices that were realized and listed here include a buyer's charge of fifteen percent.

One of the remaining quarters from the mintage of 6,146, the 1796 quarter has been awarded the grade of MS-63 by the Professional Coin Grading Service.

It was mentioned by the company that the coin is a one-year type, which means that type collectors have no choice but to purchase the 1796 if they want their type set to be complete.

Strong bids were placed on the gold items. At the time of the auction, an 1851 Humbert octagonal $50 slug was selling for $80,500. "887 Thous" is printed on the obverse of the coin, and the number "50" is punched into the reverse of the banknote. Almost Uncirculated was the grade that was assigned to it, and it was characterized as having a striking strike and a significant amount of shine.

A superb Almost Uncirculated 1852 Assay Office $50 with "887 Thous" on the obverse brought in $51,750. This coin was a significant purchase. $51,750 was the price that was paid for a Proof-68 1911 $2.50 coin that was graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.

An NGC Proof-64 Cameo 1895 silver dollar was purchased for a total of $48,875 and was the next item on the list of the highest prices realized.

In 1856, a gold dollar coin with a slanted "5" in the date was able to acquire the same price as its predecessor. A Proof-65 Ultra Cameo grade was assigned to it.
