The second installment of the D. Brent Pogue Collection auction by Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Sotheby’s brought $26,120,838 in high bids Thursday night before a full auction gallery at Sotheby’s headquarters in Manhattan, surpassing the highest pre-sale estimate of $20.6425 million. Widely acclaimed as the most valuable group of coins ever assembled by a private collector, the D. Brent Pogue Collection includes over 600 of the finest early American coins in existence, nearly all struck in Philadelphia between 1792 and 1840. After just two of five planned auctions, the D. Brent Pogue Collection has already netted more than $50 million.

On the afternoon of October 1, the Rarities Auction, comprising 135 lots of coins and numismatic Americana, was presented to an active audience in the seventh floor sales room at Sotheby’s New York headquarters. When the gavel fell on the last lot, a total of $2,993,230 worth of coins, medals, and documents had traded hands. Taking top honor was lot 55, a beautifully toned 1796 No Stars quarter eagle graded MS-61 (PCGS) and bearing a gold CAC sticker, which realized $352,500.
