​We are thrilled to offer a historic Brazilian 6400 reis regulated by New York City goldsmith John Burger in Rarities Night of our August 2019 ANA Auction.  Any piece of Regulated Gold is a rare prize, but a connection to John Burger and the economy of America's first capital city makes this piece particularly historic. It is the quintessential survivor from this exclusive series, balancing expert production and exceptional preservation. It is sure to serve as a crowning jewel in an advanced cabinet of early American issues.

​For a long time the 1876-CC twenty-cent piece has been recognized as one of the most famous and most desired of all American coins, and the offering of an example attracts great attention in the numismatic community. Not only is it a great rarity with fewer than 20 pieces believed to exist, but it also possesses the added romance that accompanies coins from the historic and short-lived Carson City Mint.

​Though considered Rarity-4 (121-160 known), the 1795 O-109 Flowing Hair half dollar is deceptively scarce. Our firm has handled just 27 examples over the past 15 years, averaging out to fewer than two coins per year, the majority of which were graded VF-20 or lower. Over the same period, we have offered 70 1879 Flowing Hair Gold Stellas and 686 MCMVII (1907) High Relief Saint-Gaudens double eagles.​

​Now comes another—a coin that has been off the market for more than three decades and is fresh to most of the present generation of bidders. This coin is an old friend, so to speak, as Stack's sold it in January 1953 as a highlight in the F.S. Guggenheimer Collection, after which it passed through other hands to Los Angeles sports magnate Jerry Buss. It was last sold 31 years ago. Now at the forthcoming ANA World's Fair of Money in August it will cross the block again as part of the E. Horatio Morgan Collection, a private cabinet with many treasures. It has been graded Proof-63 by PCGS, a branch Mint Proof. ​

Among the most coveted early American coppers are the Proof large cents struck in the mid-19th century.  With production figures shrouded in mystery, Proof large cents have been the subject of intense scholarly debate and serve as crown jewels in the most advanced cabinets.

​As Britain's oldest American colony, Bermuda shares nearly 200 years of history in common with the United States before the North American provinces declared independence. The original foundation of the island colony is a direct result of the settlement at Jamestown, which was the earliest English settlement in Virginia and the oldest permanent English settlement in North America. ​

​There are so many exciting items in our upcoming August ANA World's Fair of Money Auction that it is difficult to choose just one of them to highlight this week. That said, this Harris, Marchand & Company rectangular gold ingot discovered during the second (2014) exploration of the S.S. Central America shipwreck certainly stands out among them. ​
