“What I envisioned with this sale was to showcase some of the world-class collections that George and I have exclusively helped create over the years,” said Laura Sperber, Founder of Legend Rare Coin Auctions and President of Legend Numismatics. “While the public only associates me and my company with creating multi-million dollar collections, we’ve helped collectors of all budgets create great looking sets (like the AMG PR Barber Dime set) ). I think this sale, with only pieces that we have placed with our collector clients, is proof of that. When we work with you to build your collection, we become your partner in the project, providing advice and finding pieces that no one else can. Each piece placed in these collections has been carefully selected for its high quality and exceptional visual appeal. “
“While our sister company has built these collections with the owners,” Sperber continued, “when the time came to sell, these collectors took advantage of the auctions of rare and legendary pieces. Each piece received the care and attention to detail. The attention it deserves, and I think the results speak for themselves.The success of our customers is our success.
