I Just Heard a Rumor

10 posts in this topic

I heard a rumor from a fairly reliable source that there is a huge old time collection somewhere in the Chicago area with numerous original bank rolls of Barbers, Morgan dollars, and many never before seen Trade dollars and Liberty gold too. I wonder if it's true, sure hope so!

There are tons of old time collections that have never come to market. They come slowly. It doesn't matter. This stuff goes at 1.5X retail when it hits the auctions.

The article gives no indication as to the content of the hoard, just makes a vague allusion to it at the end. Since the article was about 1870-S coinage, there is some implication that the hoard may contain unknown, or uniquely known, 1870-S coins. Could be leftovers from the Virgil Brand collection or who knows. The article was written by long time Chicago dealer Bill Burd.
