Laguna Coast Registry & Rarity Collection-February Collectors Choice Online Auction

By Christopher Dahncke, Paper Money Researcher & Cataloger

Author: Chris Dahncke / Thursday, January 13, 2022 / Categories: Paper Money of the Week

Our February U.S. Currency Collectors Choice Online Auction will soon be posted to our website and will feature more notes from the "Gnat" Laguna Coast Registry and Rarity Collection. As many small size specialists are aware, this collection includes the best group of San Francisco District small size notes ever formed. In addition to the many unique and rare San Francisco notes that comprise this collection, it also offers an unprecedented number of Top Pop notes. PMG bestowed its coveted Best US Set 2020 award for the San Francisco $5 Feds in this collection.

While this collection has a focus on the San Francisco District, it is far more comprehensive in scope. Rare stars and nearly 200 Top Pop notes from all 12 Fed Districts – spanning Series 1928 to 2013 – are represented in $5, $10 and $20 denominations. In fact, PMG has also rated this collection the Number 1 Set in many small size categories, including the highly competitive $5 Federal Reserve Series Set. Gnat has also assembled the finest collection of Federal Reserve late finished backs (629, 637 & 204) ever to appear at auction, as well as an astounding collection of rare Mule and Non-Mule small size FRNs.  Collectors of Hawaii Emergency issues will also find Top Pop notes, and what is undoubtedly the finest comprehensive set of $20 Hawaii notes ever formed. Diligently assembled over more than 25 years, many of the notes in this collection have never appeared publicly, presenting an important opportunity to acquire many true small size rarities.

Our sales of the Laguna Coast Collection will continue in the next two monthly Collectors Choice Online auctions in February 2022 and March 2022. Be sure to mark your calendars, as many of these notes have not traded hands publicly, and this is an unprecedented opportunity to add these treasures to your collection.
