CAC Coins Bring Premiums in April 2020

Published on May 5, 2020

CAC approved coins outperformed other certified coins in various public Internet sales during the month of April. Here are ten examples, which were selected from a large number of results that could have been listed.

  1. On April 5, the firm called GreatCollections sold a CAC approved, NGC graded MS-64 1926-S Peace silver dollar for $517.50. Separately, Heritage sold two and Stack’s-Bowers sold two PCGS graded MS-64 1926-S Peace dollars, without CAC stickers, during the month of March. All four realized less than $200 each.

  2. On April 19, Great Collections sold a CAC approved, NGC graded MS-64 1883 half dollar for $2250. Certified MS-64 grade 1883 halves are not auctioned often. Price levels were higher in March 2019 when Stack’s-Bowers sold a PCGS graded MS-64 1883 half without a CAC sticker for $1380.

  3. April 23, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved certified MS-65RD 1923-S Lincoln Cent for $45,600. The ‘RD’ designation means that it was certified as having full original mint red color. In January 2020, at a FUN Convention, Heritage auctioned a PCGS certified MS-65RD 1923-S Lincoln cent without a CAC sticker for $24,000. A year ago, in April 2019, Heritage auctioned a different PCGS certified MS-65RD 1923-S Lincoln cent without a CAC sticker for $33,600.

  4. On April 23, a CAC approved, MS-66 1928-S Lincoln cent with a full red (RD) designation, realized $45,600. The next day or shortly before then, a PCGS certified MS-66 1928-S Lincoln cent with a full red (RD) designation, though without a CAC sticker, was publicly offered by the firm of David Lawrence for $27,500.

  6. On April 23, Heritage auctioned two PCGS graded AU-58 1809/8 overdate $5 gold coins that were struck from the same pair of dies. The CAC approved 1809/8 five realized $13,200 and the coin without a CAC sticker went for $7800.

  7. On April 23, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved, MS-65 grade 1906-D $20 gold coin for $26,400. In January 2020 at a FUN Convention, Heritage auctioned a PCGS graded MS-65 1906-D $20 gold coin without a CAC sticker for $11,400, less than half as much.

  8. On April 23, Heritage auctioned a CAC approved, MS-67 grade 1927 $20 gold coin for $31,200. In February 2020, at a Long Beach Expo, Heritage auctioned a PCGS graded MS-67 1927 $20 gold coin without a CAC sticker for $13,200.

  9. On April 26, GreatCollections sold a CAC approved MS-64 grade 1831 half dollar for $4168.12. In December 2019, Heritage sold two that did not have CAC stickers. A PCGS graded MS-64+ 1831 half dollar then realized $2340. A PCGS graded MS-64 1831 then sold for $2040. A CAC approved MS-64 grade 1831 thus brought much more than these two non-CAC 1831 halves, with and without plus grades.
