Up for your consideration is this beautiful not to mention FLAWLESS 2002 PCGS $10 MS-70 1/10th ounce mint state American Platinum Eagle.
This coin is from a retired PCGS registry set that is being sold.
This coin belonged to none other than the "King of Platinum" Leonardo Garcia that had this coin for 10+ years in his former #2 ALL TIME registry set and is the original owner.
The original pop 1 coin which was submitted at the same time as this coin is housed in a special PCGS flag holder and was part of the #1 set in the world.
In order for the set to ALWAYS be ranked #1 Mr.Garcia owned the top 17 sets of ALL TIME from 2001 to his retirement in 2006 that's 5 years of TOTAL registry domination.
It was impossible for anyone to come close to tieing or surpassing Leo's collection because he owned the entire POP of every coin while he was active in the registry.
For example if there was a pop 3 he owned all three, if there was a pop 6 he owned all 6! Crazy!
This particular coin had a pop 6 all made by Leo and all owned by him and locked up in his top sets.
He was offered insane money for his duplicate graded 70's but refused to sell ANY in order to insure that his sets would always be #1 while he was an active dealer/collector.
That folks is what I'd like to call total dedication.
Mr.Garcia had a very keen eye for platinum and is considered by many including us as the "Godfather" of the platinum series.
This coin has never traded hands until this offering.
This coin is housed in the original (Older PCGS PNG holder) which only 6 total coins in the original population can ever claim.
Older PCGS PNG coins are highly desireable compared to "newly graded" or "hole filler 70) PCGS coins.
We're going to offer this early graded specimen for $1800 which is extremly fair for a coin of this calibur.
Mr.Garcia has agreed to supply the winning bidder (if he/she so chooses) a signed COA stating that this coin was part of his personal #2 set.
We're offering quite a few retired registry PCGS 70 Graded coins during this run there's going to be some really tough-to-find coins up for auction.
We have done extensive reseach on every coin we offer to guarantee total satisfaction.
