“The Gobrecht Dollar is the coin that started it all for Liberty Seated coinage. Their historical significance could not be any more important to U.S. Coinage in the 1800s. When I saw my first Gobrecht I was mesmerized. The sheer beauty, color, and size were astounding to me. The design is so intricate. Of all the coins I collect, I rank the Gobrechts as my second favorite behind $10 Indians,” Simpson explained.
“I thank David Hall and PCGS for allowing these coins to be displayed at Long Beach. I really hope people enjoy viewing these rarities. I can’t imagine many people have ever seen more than one at a time. It’s been quite a challenge to build this set. With the help of Laura Sperber and George Huang of Legend Numismatics I have obtained many R-8s and a few unique pieces. It is my dream to one day have a complete set of Gobrechts,” added Simpson.
