"This latest installment of the epic Newman Collection proved important not only for the spectacular prices realized on the amazing coins," said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions, "but also because it represents, once again, another auction where every single coin found a new home. This is as much about the rarity of the coins as it is about Mr. Newman's acclaimed scholarship and stellar reputation."
A close second in the final bidding, with a price realized of $440,625, was Newman's 1776 Continental Dollar MS62 NGC, in brass, while his 1776 Continental Dollar, CURRENCEY, Pewter MS63 NGC Plain Edge, the finest of four known and the only one that survives in Mint State, proved highly sought-after by collectors, bringing $381,785.
One of the auction’s most followed coins was Newman's 1785 Inimica Tyrannis America/Confederatio, Large Circle Cent Original MS63 Brown NGC, the finest known, which did not disappoint when it came across the auction block, realizing $352,500.
