​Welcome to our main United States coins catalog for the March 2020 Auction. There is an old saying: “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it.” In a way this is relevant now. Whatever your specialty or passion is in American coins, the chances are excellent that we have multiple pieces for you. These vary from popular issues to notable rarities, with just about everything in between!

The Fairmont Collection showcases Liberty Head double eagles—one of the most popular gold coin specialties. Of the many issues minted from 1850 to 1907, fewer than a dozen are major rarities. Offered here is a very wide selection—ideal if you are beginning this series and equally important if you are filling in your “want list.”

Richard Jewell, one of America’s leading connoisseurs, is a familiar name as over the years we have handled multiple consignments from him. This consignment features an impressive selection of rare United States medals, with a focus on those created for the Assay Commission. The 1905 Theodore Roosevelt inauguration medal by Augustus Saint-Gaudens is one of the most famous and most desired in the inaugural medal series. “Teddy” Roosevelt had a mind of his own and rejected the official medal made by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber.  Beyond these are the Assay Commission medals and other pieces—all ranging from very rare to extremely rare.

In the pages to follow are many “type” coins from the Macon Collection, complementing those in our Rarities Night catalog. Similarly, there are many important coins from the E. Horatio Morgan Collection. Rarity and high quality are combined. Other consignments include a classic 1652 Pine Tree shilling. “If just one coin could be chosen to represent American numismatics, which would you choose?” is a question posed to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., Ken Bressett, and Dave Bowers, and each chose this coin! Other colonial and early American coins include many seldom-seen varieties.

Into the federal series, our wide offering of copper, nickel, silver, and gold coins will attract attention and bids from all directions. Indeed, this is a very diverse and high-quality sale that will provide significant opportunities for many numismatists to add to their cabinets or to begin a whole new specialty.

We invite you to participate and take part in numismatic history.
