CAC Coins Bring Premiums in May 2022

Published on June 2, 2022

During the month of May, CAC approved coins fared well in Internet sales and in a live auction in Dallas. Here are thirteen examples, which were selected from a large number of results that could have been listed.

  1. On May 5, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved MS-65 (sixty-five) grade 1916-D Mercury dime with a ‘Full Bands’ (FB) designation for $63,000. On Oct. 7, 2021, Heritage sold a non-CAC PCGS graded MS-66 (sixty-six) grade 1916-D dime also with a ‘Full Bands’ designation for $43,200. Therefore, a CAC approved, PCGS certified MS-65FB (sixty-five, Full Bands) 1916-D dime brought almost 50% more than a PCGS certified MS-66FB (sixty-six, Full Bands) 1916-D dime without a CAC sticker.

  2. On May 5, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved MS-67 grade 1936-S half dollar for $34,800. On April 21, 2021, Legend auctioned a PCGS graded MS-67 1936-S half dollar without a CAC sticker for $17,037.50. Although certified MS-67 1936-S halves increased in value from April 2021 to May 2022, this increase would account for only a small portion of the more than 100% difference between $17,037.50 and $34,800.

Furthermore, on April 7, Stack’s Bowers sold a PCGS graded MS-65+ (PLUS) 1888 $3 Gold Piece without a CAC sticker for $13,200.
