168 COINS. UNITED STATES. A complete collection of mint state Washington quarters in a Dansco album. 1932 to 1995 P. A long term collecting effort by a committed collector. The PCGS graded pieces have a September CDN ("Gray sheet") wholesale value of $2794. The CDN values the rest of the silver issues to 1949D at $999 in MS63 (a grade that many will exceed). (There are 2 1938S pieces and no 1938 plain). The keys and most of the semi-keys have been graded by PCGS:
1932D AU53. 1932S AU55. 1934D MS65. 1935D MS64. 1936 MS64. 1936D MS64. 1937D MS64. 1937S MS64. 1938S MS65 (and MS62). 1939D MS66. 1939S MS64. 1940D MS64. 1941D MS65.
The math on the estimate: $2794, slabbed CDN. $999 raw (at 63, conservatively). $170.50 balance of raw silver quarters at 11 times face; clad coinage (uncs and proofs at face) $20.25. Total $3983.75. This is a very difficult set to collect given the amount of material that was not necessarily saved during many of the years of issue as well as the huge quantity of silver that has gone into the melting pot.
Davissons Ltd uses a soft close for its auctions, which means no lot closes until everyone is done bidding. Every time a bid is placed within the final 40 seconds of a lot closing, the timer is reset to 40 seconds. This continues until no bids are placed for 40 seconds, at which point the lot closes. There will never be more than one lot closing at once, as the next lot is not allowed to begin closing until the current lot closes.
To bid: enter your maximum bid into the text box, and click submit. Only round dollar amounts are accepted. You are then required to confirm your bid. Once confirmed, all bids are final. If you have placed a bid in error you must call during office hours and speak to one of us. If you are the current high bidder then it will display “Current High Bidder: YOU” If you are not the high bidder, or if you are not logged in, then the current high bidder will be identified by their 5 digit client ID. You may find your client ID under the Account tab.
Bids are reduced automatically, so feel free to bid your maximum and it will be reduced to one increment over the current high bid. If a user places a bid that is higher than necessary to be the current high bidder on the lot, the displayed bid will reflect one advance over the next lower bid. For example, if a user "A" places a bid of $120 on a lot which opens at $100, "A" will be winning that lot at $100. If another user "B" bids $110, the winning bidder will be "A" at $120, one advance over the supporting bid of $110. If user "B" in this example instead placed a bid at $120, then user "A" will still be winning at $120 because they placed that maximum bid value first.
Increments can be viewed here. The next bid will always be on the next increment, so if a user is winning a lot at $100, or $105, or $109, the next bid will still always be $110.Close
