The Long Beach Expo U.S. Coins Signature Auction offers an abundance of coins that are vital to any coin collection. Featured coin is the 1975 NO S Roosevelt dime, one of the rarest issued in the U.S. federal series. This is one of only two known coins with the error. The dime is terrific to look at; its perfect surfaces are an attractive array of cerulean-blue and pale jade toning. I is absolutely essential to complete a Roosevelt dimes collection.
The 1876-CC twenty cent piece is listed as one of the 100 Greatest U.S. Coins. The coin has sharply detailed design elements and doubling on stars 2 through 7 and in LIBERTY. When examined, the remnants of two misplaced numbers, 87, can be found below the date. A faint die crack can be noticed from the T in CENTS to the eagle’s wing. The 1876-CC is a must-have for the serious coin collector.
The S.S. Central American gold ingot offered is a piece of the three tons of gold recovered from the U.S. Mail ship Central America that sank in 1857 and found in 1988. This brick retains most of its character from when it was found at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean with six sides showing reddish-russet incrustation from the rusted iron hull of the ship.
