​This week’s Coins in Motion Highlight of the Week is an exceptional Red 1909-S Indian Head cent graded MS-66 by NGC. This was the second mintmarked cent in U.S. history, with the first being struck the year before – the 1908-S Indian Head cent. Not many of the 309,000 coins produced were set aside by collectors due to the enthusiasm for the 1909-S V.D.B. Lincoln cent that was released the same year. Therefore, this is a difficult coin to find in this high state of preservation. We offer this 1909-S Indian Head cent through Stack’s Bowers Galleries Direct for $9,250.

​The monumental Pinnacle Collection realized unbelievable results, obliterating numerous records. One such record was the number of lots to realize more than $1 million. Prior to The Pinnacle Collection, no single auction presented by Stack's Bowers Galleries (including United States sales) has exceeded four lots that sold for  $1 million or more. Part II of the D. Brent Pogue Collection in September 2015 was the prior record holder with four items that crossed that benchmark.
