PCGS - The Collection of a Lifetime Headlines the Auction of the Year

"These coins are like a family." Those are the words of Laura Sperber, founder of Legend Rare Coin Auctions. She's handled more than $1 billion in rare coins over her four-decades as a coin dealer, but "these coins" she helped procure for longtime collector Bruce Morelan. They represent the pinnacle of her career and helped secure Morelan, a numismatist not yet even in his 60s, an indelible place among the hobby's greatest collectors. Now, The Bruce Morelan Collection is set for sale, to be offered by Sperber's boutique auction house on October 8 at the Regency Auction 41. The landmark sale, to be held at The Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada, will include an extensive selection of outstanding rare coins from Morelan's wide-ranging collection.

It's a cabinet that Sperber has personally helped Morelan build over the course of decades. "On one hand, my heart is heavy. Each [coin] was so carefully studied," she says. "When we knew it was right for the set, we pounced," she adds, recalling countless occasions when she and Morelan mutually agreed to bypass bidding on certain coins because they just weren't the right fit for Morelan's superior collection. "However, now that Bruce has decided it's time to see these coin moved to new homes, I am happy to be able to see them through the process in one of our Regency Auctions, which were created specifically as a home for high-end coins like these."

Impeccable collection. All of the specimens in this collection should well exceed the market averages. Several should set new records.
