MORE ON THE OMAHA BANK HOARD

Mark Borckardt of Heritage Auction Galleries writes:
Heritage purchased the Omaha Bank Hoard in its entirety in 2004. The man who owned the coins is very private and doesn't want a lot of details disclosed. I can tell you that the hoard consisted of over 320,000 coins, all in rolls, that were saved by one man starting in the late 1930s and continuing until the early 1970s.

The hoard consisted of cent through half dollar rolls all in mint state condition. Heritage bought the hoard in its entirety and it required a moving van to transport everything. The earliest coins in the hoard were original rolls of Buffalo nickels and Walking Liberty halves, with most of the coins being saved in the 1950s and 1960s, and very little saved after 1964.

Unfortunately, I can't disclose the purchase price, other than to tell you it was a seven figure deal.
