Lots Available for Viewing in Baltimore at Booth #403

Virginia Beach, VA – The numismatic staff of DLRC Auctions is excited to announce the upcoming sale of the Southern Seated Dollar Collection – an assembly of 31 different proof Seated dollars including many rarities and ultra-low mintage issues.

According to John Feigenbaum, DLRC Auctions President, “this collection is one of the finest of its kind ever assembled. There are numerous issues with fewer than 15 known specimens. Additionally, some of these are the finest known – by far.”

Feigenbaum added that “DLRC Auctions is especially proud to be chosen as the seller of this magnificent collection because the consignor is well known to many other auction houses. He chose DLRC Auctions because we have represented him with integrity and diligence for over a decade. His relationship with Win Callender (DLRC Vice President) is especially close which is indicative of the way we do business around here. Whether folks are buying or selling, we put forth our best effort on a daily basis.”

1850 $1 PCGS Proof 63
Mr. Callender, further went on to add that “DLRC Auctions has not had such a small but powerful collection since the Hoosier Collection, which realized right at $1.1 million in February 2008. The Southern States sale should realize very close to that mark as there are many issues here that collectors have been seeking.”

The collection will be available for viewing and bidding beginning Friday, May 23, at Lots for this special two-week sale will close on Thursday, June 5 between 8 and 11:00 PM EST (during the Baltimore Coin Show). Coins will be available for personal viewing at the show at the show at DLRC booth #403.
