Ohringer Gold Spurs $11 Million Outcome
High-grade gold from the Ohringer Family Trust collection and other consignments boosted results of Ira and Larry Goldberg’s May 25-28 auction to an overall total of $11,013,585.
A 1930-S Saint-Gaudens $20 from the Ohringer Family Trust consignment, graded MS-64 PQ by Professional Coin Grading Service with Certified Acceptance Corp. sticker, sold for $130,000.
Catalogers had assigned a presale estimate of $120,000-$130,000.
A 1799 Capped Bust $10 with small obverse stars, graded MS-64 by Numismatic Guaranty Corp., went for $115,000. “The present specimen is among the top survivors,” Goldberg sale catalogers wrote, citing an NGC census of four graded MS-64 and none finer.
A 1932 Saint-Gaudens double eagle in NGC MS-66 realized $110,000. “The 1932 Saint-Gaudens is a modern day rarity whose numbers have not been increased over the years by hoards or European stockpiles as have other dates in the series,” catalogers wrote, adding, “Only a few score exist today in all grades.” They referenced a PCGS population of 10 seen in this grade and three finer. Estimate was $110,000-$120,000.
A proof 1899 $20, NGC Proof-65 Ultra Cameo PQ with CAC sticker, brought $95,000. It had a presale estimate of $70,000-$80,000.
