“The results show yet again that you do not need to have thousands of coins to have big results,” declared Julie Abrams, president of Legend Auctions. “Our boutique style auctions, which net strong results in our Regency Auctions, have translated into a great model for our internet only auctions as well—provide hand selected, high end quality coins with accurate photos and descriptions, and the bidders will show up in spades.”
