Legend Rare Coin Auctions to Present Final Section of Northern Lights Collection Along With Fresh 1994 Collection in Las Vegas on July 13.
(Lincroft, NJ—June 23, 2017)
Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud to present Regency Auction XXII on July 13, the official auction of the PCGS Members Only Show. Five “named” collections are included among the 515 high quality lots being offered. The sale begins with the type coins of the Glacier Rams Collection, a ranking basic type set on the PCGS Registry, followed by the 1994 Collection, a group of coins that was put away as an “alternative investment,” and features some amazing coins that have been off the market for 23 years. The final monster toned Morgan dollars from the Northern Lights Collection, followed by the A.W. Collection of Morgan dollars offer many opportunities for specialists in that series. Between, there are great collector coins, as well as ultra high grade condition rarities. Virtually something for everyone.
“From the day we started gathering consignments for this sale, we knew it was going to be special,” declared Laura Sperber. “The 1994 Collection was exclusively put together by our sister firm, Legend Numismatics, in 1994. Clearly the two gold coins, a $5 1888 PCGS PR66 DCAM CAC and the $20 1909 PCGS PR66 CAC are both important highlights in the sale, but it will also be remembered for the amazing matte proof Lincoln collection.” Ms. Sperber continued, “As we have shown in the previous four offerings of Northern Lights coins, we expect blistering bidding activity, especially for the final lot, the Grande Dame of Toners, the 1880-S PCGS MS68+ CAC Ex Sunnywood-Simpson—a coin that will likely shatter all sorts of records!”
“Collector type coins are very well represented in the sale,” explains Greg Cohen, Senior Numismatist for the firm. “The Glacier Rams Collection gets the sale off to a neat start with very eye appealing type coins that will fit any collector’s budget. This also applies to the Morgan dollars in the A.W. Collection, a complete set, with most of the coins very attractively toned—with coins in the $300-$7,000 range, every collector can have a shot to add one of these hand selected coins to their own collections.”
Further highlights include, but are certainly not limited to:
- Lot 6—1C 1832 Medium Letters. PCGS MS65+ BN CAC Ex Newman. From the Glacier Rams Collection
- Lot 33—1C 1856 Slanted 5. PCGS PR65 RD CAC From the 1994 Collection

Miles Standish Will Get Head Shaved
(Denver, Colorado) June 20, 2017 – Prominent numismatist Michael “Miles” Standish will get his head shaved in public at the American Numismatic Association 2017 World’s Fair of Money® in Denver. The hair-raising act will raise money for the ANA and the nonprofit Standish Foundation for Child & Family Centered Healthcare.
To Benefit ANA And Help Sick Children
Standish is an award-winning numismatic author and Senior Grader and Vice-President of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. The Austin, Texas-based Standish Foundation was launched in 2010 by his wife, Andrea Mangione Standish, a certified child life specialist. The foundation assists healthcare providers around the world to provide the tools and training they need to minimize healthcare-related pain and suffering in children.
The “Shave Miles” event will begin at 2 p.m. on Thursday, August 3, 2017, at Booth 97, located next to the ANA Business and Messaging Center at the entrance to the World’s Fair of Money bourse floor in Hall F of the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. The public is invited to watch.
“I may also have a well-known, surprise guest getting his head shaved, too,” said Standish.
“The mission of the foundation is to have happy, healthy, resilient kids who haven’t been traumatized by healthcare experiences. This event is to help children get better care and to help an important hobby organization dear to me and so many others, the American Numismatic Association,” he explained.
“Building strong relationships amongst community-based organizations is a hallmark of the American Numismatic Association. We are proud to partner with the Standish Foundation for Child & Family Centered Healthcare during the World’s Fair of Money in Denver,” said Kim Kiick, ANA Executive Director.
“Through combined efforts of the ‘Shave Miles’ event, we’re adding value into the vision of each organization – ensuring that the highest quality of education, training, and tools make the greatest impact in the communities we serve,” Kiick emphasized.
All donations for this event are tax deductible and will be evenly divided between the ANA and the foundation. Checks should be made payable to the American Numismatic Association. Donations can be made at Booth 97 or at the ANA Business and Messaging Center, Tuesday and Wednesday, August 1 and 2, from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., and on the day of the event, Thursday, August 3, from 10 a.m. until all of Miles’ hair is shaved.
A native of Michigan, Standish began collecting in 1973 at the age of nine. In 2011, he was honored with the “Director’s Coin for Excellence” by then-Director of the United States Mint Edmund Moy.
He is co-author with former Chief Engraving of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, of the 2012 reference book, “American Silver Eagles: A Guide to the U.S. Bullion Coin Program.” Standish’s 2014 book, “Morgan Dollar: America’s Love Affair with a Legendary Coin,” received the 2015 Numismatic Literary Guild award for Best Specialized Book.
