Rick's Pedigree Coins – Skidaway Island Collection of Bust Half Dollars


Heritage Auctions introduced an exceptional collection of Bust Half Dollars to pedigree collectors at the Dallas Invitational PNG US Coins Signature Auction at the Gaylord Texan Hotel on February 26 – March 1, 2015.  The collection was graded by NGC with “Skidaway Island Collection” on the label.  The Bust Half Dollars have exceptional eye-appearance and are a true “collection” versus a “hoard” of coins.  The collection included 437 of the Overton numbers (http://scoop.diamondgalleries.com) and approximately 500 Bust Half Dollars in total.  Ownership previously resided with a private collector who remains anonymous.   

Some of the Skidaway Busts acquired in the Heritage (February PNG) auction are now starting to appear in the secondary market at coin shops, shows and on Ebay.  However, if you would like an example for your pedigree collection and don’t necessarily feel like paying the flip premium then you are in luck as the coins are still appearing in current and future Heritage auctions.  Just click on the Heritage link and search “Skidaway” in Bust Half Dollars (www.ha.com).  You should see about 25 current offerings.  

The following photos show the amazing quality and beauty of a few of the coins Heritage presented:
