Omaha Bank Hoard Hall-of-Fame

Set Description

Omaha Bank Hoard Hall-of-Fame: NGC and PCGS are reliable sources for identifying coins from the Omaha Bank Hoard because they were the two original grading services selected to authenticate and grade the coins. My collection, “The Omaha Bank Hoard Hall-of-Fame”, shows the different denominations/dates/mintmarks/varieties available for the hoard.

The collection runs in a collector’s logical order with the exception of the last four coins. Those coins (certification verified) appeared in the book “Rick’s Legacy: Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency”.

Set Goals
My collecting goal for the Omaha Bank Hoard is to collect an example from each denomination/date/mintmark/variance for the different coins available from the Hoard. I have expanded the pennies to include 1 from each decade with the exception of the 1943 steel cents. Also, the WWII nickels were expanded to try to capture one from each year and mintmark. When possible, slots were created for FS varieties.

View Coin 1930 Wheat Cent - Omaha Bank Hoard United States 1C 1930 OMAHA BANK HOARD PCGS MS 65 Red Omaha Bank Hoard Hall-of-Fame: 1930 Wheat Cent

There are a variety of ways to diversify a collection from the Omaha Bank Hoard. Both NGC and PCGS are reliable sources for identifying coins from the Omaha Bank Hoard and the collector should use extreme caution if any other grading service offer coins claiming to be from this hoard. In my collecting, I have chosen to focus on the more difficult coins. Unfortunately, there is not a population report available to target the rare coins so it is left up to the collector to determine what is rare from what is evidenced by availability in the coin market place.

Shown here is a 1930 Wheat cent that was minted at the Philadelphia mint and has been graded as MS65RD by PCGS. I have only seen 1 other 1930 Wheat cent from the Omaha Bank Hoard and it was graded MS66 by PCGS. It appeared in a Heritage auction on June 13, 2010. The 1930 dated cent is the earliest dated Omaha Bank Hoard Wheat cent that I have seen and thus earns a spot in the Omaha Bank Hoard Hall-of-Fame.
