Early Quarter Eagles

Prior to our memorable auction of the D. Brent Pogue Collection Part I in May, Christine Karstedt moderated a panel discussion of the Pogue coins and their background. Participating were Dave Bowers and Larry Stack from our company and our long-time friend, David Tripp of Sotheby’s. Among the questions raised was, “Why are gold coins of the 1820s and 1830s so rare today, when in some instances many were made?”

D. Brent Pogue Collection Part II News

Our Pogue Collection Sale Part I continues to echo in the Numismatic Hall of Fame, so to speak. It was a memorable auction to be sure—with just 128 coins selling for $25 million, the prices over high estimate in total. Most of the coins were of such quality that equal examples may not be available in our lifetime. While no one can predict the future with certainty, in the past a record auction price is apt to appear as a bargain years later.
