Collectors Called the Shots February 28 at Legend-Morphy's $1.73 Million Las Vegas sale at the PCGS Members Only Show
- March 18, 2013
Coin connoisseurs from throughout the country gathered at the elegant Venetian/Palazzo hotel for Legend-Morphy Rare Coin's February 28, 2013 Regency Auction, which tallied an outstanding $1.73 million (all prices quoted inclusive of 15% buyer's premium). Legend-Morphy brought its A-game, offering a carefully handpicked selection of coins in a boutique-style, 334-lot sale held in association with the PCGS Members Only Coin Show.
Collectors liked what they saw and bid aggressively, both before and during the event.
"The pre-auction online bidding activity greatly exceeded our expectations," said Legend-Morphy's president, Julie Abrams. "That, combined with heavy attendance at the preview, gave us every reason to believe the auction would be a success."
Sperber, Morphy and Abrams all commented on the valuable feedback they received from customers at their second Las Vegas Regency event.
"The comment I heard most often was how much they appreciate our boutique approach and the carefully chosen high-end offerings in our auctions," said Abrams. "Customers also appreciate that we produce a beautiful hardbound catalog and that we're so attentive and available to answer their questions at the preview."
The Legend-Morphy team has already begun work on the next Regency Auction, which will be held April 11, 2013 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
"Although the April 11 sale is already full, we are accepting quality consignments for our July auction," Sperber noted.
