Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California. Our historic November 2020
Showcase Auction is marked by several significant cabinets that are being

world-class set of Morgan and Peace dollars, as well as sets of Lincoln cents,

a remarkable 36 awarded examples in silver, alongside several rarities in
bronze, a representative collection of French, Canadian, and British medals,
and a pair of very rare medals related to the fur trade.
