Dear Bidder: Welcome to New York! More than 150 consignors have contributed to this auction, which has more than 3700 lots between our floor sessions and online offerings. As always, all lots up for auction will be available for viewing onsite in New York, and for this auction, additional lot viewing will take place at our Beverly Hills office and world headquarters in Dallas. Among our consignors is Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr., contributor of a Featured Collection.

The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection


Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. is a practicing ophthalmologist who has been an active collector since the mid-1970s. A frequent customer of Steve Ivy Numismatic Auctions (a predecessor firm of Heritage), he became known as the guy with the microscope for carrying his preferred accessory with him to auction lot viewing. As he refined his collecting sensibilities, he honed in on U.S. coins that were, in his words, interesting or important, and now dozens of quality coins from his collection are available to others for the first time in decades. Early coins are a strength of The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. His most famous coin is his 1795 Jefferson Head cent, VF25 NGC, acquired from Denis W. Loring in 1981 and formerly of the Garrett Collection. (The Jefferson Head cent made national news shortly after it sold in the Garrett auction, for it was one of the coins lost by Tom Morley in what coin-collecting circles later dubbed the taxicab incident. It was returned by the cabdriver soon after.) Another 18th century coin, his Fine Details NGC example of the 1792 half disme, is similarly important. His collection contains more than just early coins, however; a 20th century highlight is his 1942/1 dime, graded MS65 Full Bands by PCGS and certified in a slim first-generation holder. In addition to Dr. Harpers magnificent coins, there are several other highlight-worthy pieces in the auction, including a 1916 Doubled Die Obverse nickel, MS63 NGC; an 1874-CC Arrows dime, AU55 NGC; an 1882 gold dollar, PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC; and an 1895 double eagle, PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS, CAC.

As always, Heritage makes it easy to place your bids: before the auction on HA.com or by mail, fax, and e-mail; same-day remote bidding by telephone and through our award-winning online platform, Heritage LIVE!; and the most time-honored method of all, bidding from the auction floor. We would enjoy seeing you in New York. Happy bidding! Sincerely,

Greg Rohan President

Todd Imhof Executive Vice President

Colonials
Fine 1662 oak Tree Twopence Very Rare noe-31.5, small 2

3003 1652 Pine Tree shilling, small Planchet Plugged, Damaged nGC Details. VF. Crosby 14-R, noe-29, W-930, R.3. 71.0 gn. Plugged over the N in IN and O in DO. The edges are crimped near 3 and 9 oclock, and a few scratches and scrapes are evident over moderately wavy surfaces. The tree, date, and denomination are clear, as are a majority of the peripheral letters. Listed on page 37 of the 2012 Guide Book.

noe-17 1652 Pine Tree shilling small Planchet, VF25

3001 1662 oak Tree, small 2 Twopence Fine 12 PCGs. CaC. noe31.5, W-240, R.7. 11.7 gn per its Bowers and Merena catalog appearance. The light to deep gray surfaces are unblemished. Wear is focused on the tree trunk and the 2 in the date. The obverse is misaligned toward 7:30, but the reverse is well-centered. All Oak Tree twopence are from the same die pair, but Noe (and subsequently Picker) delineated numerous distinct varieties caused by die recutting and advancement of die breaks. Listed on page 36 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Witham and Sansoucy Collections (Bowers and Merena, 9/1992), lot 782. (#17)

1662 oak Tree Twopence, XF45 noe-31, W-240

3004 1652 Pine Tree shilling, small Planchet VF25 nGC. Crosby 22-l, noe-17, W-840, R.3. 68.2 gn. This dove-gray silver shilling has somewhat uneven wear, with the upper half sharply defined and both sides worn near 6 oclock, where mint clips precluded a protective beaded border. The surfaces are problem-free save for a drop of lacquer at the bottom of the reverse. Listed on page 37 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Aubrey and Adeline Bebee Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/1987), lot 1003, flip included. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#24) 3005 1723 Rosa americana Penny XF40 nGC. M. 2.26-Eb.8, W-1278, R.6. A medium-brown representative with no spots or consequential marks. Wear is concentrated on the cheek and hair of King George. Listed on page 41 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#125)

3002 1662 oak Tree Twopence XF45 nGC. Crosby 1-a3, noe31, W-240, High R.6. 10.6 gn. Small 2. A charming Choice XF twopence that boasts a full, sharp tree and a well-centered reverse with nearly complete design detail. Lightly toned pearl-gray and olive-green. A straight mint-made clip affects outer beads on the lower right reverse, and the obverse is misaligned toward 7:30 with four letters fully off the flan. Marks are limited to a single intermittent line left of the denomination. Listed on page 36 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#17)

Session One, Auction #1168 | Thursday, March 8, 2012 | 12:00PM ET

important 1724 Rosa americana Twopence Pattern, Martin 5-H Extremely Rare European Discovery

3007 1723 Hibernia Farthing, DEi GRaTia Ms62 Brown nGC. M. 2.1-Bc.4, W-12350, R.4. A smooth, sharply struck, and satiny golden-brown example of William Woods Hibernia coinage. Traces of mint red cling to protected areas. Listed on page 42 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Texas Numismatic Association (5/1981). From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#176)

smooth Massachusetts 1787 Half Cent Ms63 Brown, Ryder 4-C

3008 1787 Massachusetts Half Cent Ms63 Brown PCGs. Ryder 4-C, W-5940, R.2. This splendid Select Mint State piece has unabraded mahogany-brown and steel-blue surfaces. Minuscule flan imperfections are retained from the planchet prior to the strike. The shield and lower skirt lack complete design definition. A small curved clip (as coined) is at 5 oclock. Listed on page 57 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 18 in 63 Brown, 30 finer (7/10). (#296) 3009 1787 ETliB inDE small Head Right Connecticut Copper Environmental Damage nGC Details. XF. M. 1.1-a, W-2700, R.3. This subtype is distinctive both for its design and its reverse legend. The deep mahogany-brown surfaces are evenly granular but there are no abrasions or planchet detractions. Listed on page 59 of the 2012 Guide Book.(#346)

near-Mint 1787 new Jersey Copper Maris 46-e, outlined shield

3006 1724 Rosa americana Pattern Twopence Genuine PCGs. Martin 5-H, Breen-99, W-1358, R.7. The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as a reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, the piece has the details of an XF specimen that is corroded and cleaned. William Woods Rosa Americana coinage flourished (if such is the right term) with issues dated 1722 and 1723; all later pieces, including those dated 1724 and 1727, are thought patterns. This example fits none of the pedigrees listed in Martins reference on Rosa Americana coinage; it is a previously unknown eighth specimen of the Martin 5-H, which has the letters MA just to the left of the division created by the portrait. This example from a European source has the classic goiter die break at the lower obverse. Moderately corroded surfaces have retoned orange and violet from a past cleaning, but the sophisticated early American coinage collector will be able to look past these surface faults and appreciate this important pattern for what it is. Listed on page 42 of the 2012 Guide Book.

3010 1787 new Jersey Copper, outlined shield aU58 PCGs. M. 46-e, W-5245, R.1. This chocolate-brown New Jersey copper is well struck for the variety and the smooth surfaces display glimmers of satin luster. The obverse rim shows slight crimping at 1 oclock. The usual die state with clash marks from the shield near the plow and prominent die sinking near the date. Listed on page 66 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#503) 3011 1786 Vermont Copper, VERMonTEnsiUM Environmental Damage nGC Details. VF. RR-6, Bressett 4-D, W-2020, R.2. Steel, dark brown, and olive surfaces exhibit some surface roughness on each side, including a small planchet void on the reverse. The Green Mountains of Vermont appear on this Landscape copper. Numismatic researcher Tony Carlotto published a photo in his Vermont reference that he believes is the exact mountain scene depicted on the Landscape coppers. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book.

3012 1786 Vermont Copper, Baby Head Fine Planchet Flaw nGC Details. Fine. RR-9, Bressett 7-F, W-2040, R.3. 125.3 gn per its C4 lot appearance. The distinctive Baby Head was the initial attempt by the Vermont coiners to provide types sufficiently similar to George III coppers to enable circulation. This dark brown example has a fairly large flan flaw at 12 oclock on the reverse and lesser flaws on the lower obverse, left of the globe, and on the forehead of the baby. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Bowers & Merena (1/1990), lot 1261; 7th Annual C-4 auction, (11/2001), lot 312. 3013 1786 Vermont Copper, Bust left Fine 15 nGC. RR-10, Bressett 8-G, W-2045, R.4. Slightly rough surfaces are expected on this variety as on most Vermont coppers, and this example is much nicer than usual. Both sides are two-tone, with deep steel toning in the fields and lighter gray-brown on the devices. It is believed that Abel Buell, the one-time counterfeiter and later, talented engraver, prepared the dies. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Early American Numismatics (4/1996), lot 76.(#551) 3014 1786 Vermont Copper, Bust left VF20 nGC. RR-11, Bressett 9-H, W-2050, R.4. An impressive example of this early Bust Left variety. Deep brown overall with light golden-brown toning along the right reverse border. Mildly granular but only a couple of slender and minor marks are noted. The reverse is moderately misaligned toward 7:30. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Thomas Elder (11/1916), lot 740.(#551) 3015 1787 Vermont Copper, Bust Right obverse Repaired nGC Details. VF. RR-14, Bressett 10-K, W-2105, R.3. 120.6 gn, per its C4 auction appearance. A slender flan streak bisects the obverse between 5 and 11 oclock, and has been smoothed by a prior non-numismatist owner. The reverse also has a slender flan striation, located in front of the seated Liberty, but that streak has not been tampered with. Nicely detailed with walnut-brown surfaces. Struck off center toward 3 oclock. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: 11th Annual C4 Auction, 11/2005, lot 343. 3016 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right VG10 nGC. RR-19, Bressett 13-l, W-2185, R.5. 114.1 gn per its Superior auction listing. Medium to deep brown with smooth devices and moderately granular fields. Struck a few degrees off center toward 12 oclock, though most of the date is present. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Pre-Long Beach Sale (Superior, 2/2002), lot 1017. (#563) 3017 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right Fine 12 nGC. RR-17, Bressett 14-s, W-2125, R.5. 129.5 gn per its Stacks auction listing, there described as VF35. Deep brown overall with lighter brown on the mailed bust. Well centered, and essentially unabraded aside from faint vertical brush marks on the portrait. The central reverse is lightly brought up, as usual, and retains the texture of the planchet. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: George Polis Collection (Stacks, 1/2007), lot 6470. (#563) 3018 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right Fine 12 nGC. RR-22, Bressett 10-Q, W-2165, R.5. 124.4. gn per its C4 auction appearance. Olive-brown high points contrast with mahogany-red fields. Well centered and generally smooth despite a few trivial thin lines on the head of the mailed bust. The customary die state with a sizeable but low relief die break from the legs through the lower left reverse field. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: C-4 Convention Sale (12/2007), lot 415.(#563)

3019 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right Damaged nGC Details. Fine. RR-29, Bressett 22-U, W-2220, R.5. 102.1 gn per its ANR auction appearance. Although designated as Damaged by NGC, we find no evidence for such a conclusion, though the medium to dark brown surfaces exhibit occasional moderate verdigris, a small rough area is on the obverse exergue, and a mint-made strikethrough affects the reverse at 5 oclock. The ski jump die break on the upper right obverse is characteristic of Ryder-29. The reverse is misaligned toward 3 oclock with much of ET LIB off the flan. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Richard Picker; Dr. Robert I. Hinkley (3/1993); Medio Collection (ANR & Stacks, 6/2004), lot 2038.(#563) 3020 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Fine. RR-21, Bressett 10-R, W-2155, R.5. 119.0 gn per its EAH auction description. The usual late die state with a lengthy break from the first 8 in the date to the middle of the left reverse field. A second, lesser break is at 5 oclock on the obverse. The mailed bust is mildly glossy from a wipe and a faded scratch spans from the reverse center to the E in ET LIB. A diagonal pinscratch crosses the neck and shoulders of the seated figure. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Early American History Auctions (10/2006) lot 704. 3021 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right Environmental Damage nGC Details. VF. RR-23, Bressett 10-o, W-2175, R.4. While a few minor corrosion spots are visible on smooth and somewhat glossy dark olive-brown surfaces, this still attractive Vermont copper is destined for an advanced cabinet. When it was offered in the 2004 C-4 sale, the cataloger wrote that it is a superior example for this variety. Slight roughness at the central obverse is a result of inadequate minting equipment and procedures, as the metal failed to fill the entire die when this piece was struck. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Ted Craig Collection; C-4 Convention Sale (11/2004), lot 414. (#563) 3022 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right VF20 nGC. RR-24, Bressett 16-s, W-2200, R.3. A medium brown example with good centering and an unmarked though mildly granular appearance. The usual die state with a narrow break on the mailed bust. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Superior Galleries.(#563) 3023 1788 Vermont Copper, Bust Right VF25 nGC. RR-16, Bressett 15-s, W-2120, R.1. The Ryder-16 die marriage is unquestionably the most plentiful variety in the Vermont series, and that makes it an ideal candidate for the type collector who only seeks out a single example of the Vermont coinage. Aside from a minor edge flaw at the upper obverse, probably as struck, this piece is an exceptional example with smooth, problem-free olive-brown surfaces. The central design elements are weakly defined as always. A highly attractive and appealing example for an advanced collection. Listed on page 68 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Stacks (6/1988), lot 956; Mike Ringo (9/1990); later, American Numismatic Rarities (6/2005), lot 1042.(#563) 3024 1783 nova Constellatio Copper, Pointed Rays, small Us aU58 nGC. Crosby 2-B, W-1865, R.2. Luster shimmers across raised elements of this lightly circulated Early American copper. Sharply defined with unblemished golden-brown surfaces. Listed on page 52 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: E.M. Rhodes (Heritage, 12/1983), lot 13, flip included. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#801) 3025 1783 nova Constellatio Copper, Blunt Rays aU55 nGC. Crosby 3-C, W-1875, R.3. An attractive and problem-free medium brown Nova Constellatio. All design details are clear despite light wear on the wreath and eye. Listed on page 52 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: E.M. Rhodes (Heritage, 12/1983), lot 12, flip included. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#807)

Session One, Auction #1168 | Thursday, March 8, 2012 | 12:00PM ET

Choice aU 1787 Fugio Cent Pointed Rays, W-6855, sTaTEs UniTED

3029 1787 Fugio Cent, new Haven Restrike, Copper aU55 nGC. n. 104-FF, W-17560. The guinea pig of American numismatics, Newman 104-FF is not from New Haven and is not a restrike, as it was struck from copy dies. However, it has been avidly collected since the 1860s. This is a lovely medium brown example with pleasing detail and minimal signs of handling. Listed on page 84 of the 2012 Guide Book. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#916)

1787 Fugio Cent, Ms65 Red and Brown new Haven Restrike, newman 104-FF

3026 1787 Fugio Cent, sTaTEs UniTED, 4 Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays aU55 nGC. n. 13-X, W-6855, R.2. This deep brown Fugio copper has an uncommonly sharp strike, despite minor inexactness along the lower left obverse border. Minor to moderate flan imperfections are typical for the issue, but there are no abrasions, nor any indications of high-point wear. Listed on page 83 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Keller Tobacco and Coins (1981); collector flip included. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#883)

Ms62 Brown Fugio Cent, newman 13-X Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays, sTaTEs UniTED

3030 1787 Fugio Cent, new Haven Restrike, Copper Ms65 Red and Brown PCGs. CaC. n. 104-FF, W-17560, R.3. Substantial straw-gold luster graces each side of this crisply struck Gem. Slight gunmetal mellowing is also present. Struck from moderately rusted dies, characteristic of this mid-19th century issue. Listed on page 84 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 14 in 65 Red and Brown, 5 finer (1/12). (#917) 3031 1787 auctori Plebis Token VF30 nGC. Breen-1147, W-8770, R.3. The Auctori Plebis tokens were struck in England and are collected as part of the Colonial series due to their similarity to many other American issues. Smooth surfaces exhibit medium to dark brown toning blended over each side. Indistinct details are typical and make grading a challenge. This example is particularly attractive and perhaps finer than the assigned grade. Listed on page 70 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#601)

3027 1787 Fugio Cent, sTaTEs UniTED, 4 Cinquefoils, Pointed Rays Ms62 Brown nGC. n. 13-X, W-6855, R.2. A lovely golden-brown representative. Satin luster traverses boldly struck and unblemished surfaces. Planchet striations are nearly absent, though slight granularity is present near ARE and between the rings at 11:30. Almost certainly once part of the Bank of New York holdings. Listed on page 83 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#883)

1787 Club Rays, Rounded Ends Fugio Cent aU50, W-6680

3032 1787 auctori Plebis Token XF45 PCGs. Breen-1147, W-8770, R.3. A walnut-brown example of this interesting token issue, popular for its design similarity to contemporary Connecticut coppers. Smooth aside from faded marks near the chin. A fairly early die state with no sign of the broad die break usually seen in front of Britannias forehead, though a slender break is present behind her shoulder. Listed on page 70 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#601) 3033 1736 auctori Plebis Hispaniola VG10 nGC. Breen-1149, low R.7. The extremely rare 173366 Hispaniola token with a right-facing bust on the obverse and a harp on the reverse. These pieces are associated with the Auctori Plebis tokens because of the similar obverse legend. The weak impression is typical of all known examples, with smooth, glossy brown surfaces that any collector could love. It is believed that about a dozen of these pieces survive in all grades. Our consigner suggests that this piece may have been from the Hall and Brand collections. Ex: C-4 Convention Sale (11/1998), lot 438. 3034 1794 Talbot, allum & lee/Birmingham Halfpenny Mule Ms62 Brown nGC. Breen-1040, W-8665, High R.4. When this piece was described for the June 1998 Early American History Auctions sale, the cataloger called it Choice proof, and mentioned a minor reverse scratch. This specimen has a bold obverse strike with slight weakness on the reverse, as always. The surfaces are fully reflective light brown with iridescent toning and excellent eye appeal.

3035 1820 north West Token VF25 PCGs. Breen-1083, W-9250. Holed at 12 oclock, as are most of the known examples. According to Breens Encyclopedia (page 109): Only a single issue qualifies as a colonial circulating medium for the Pacific Northwest. This is the 1820 NORTH WEST COMPANY token, made in Birmingham by John Walker & Co. for Canadian promoters of a beaver-trapping enterprise ... The Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins adds: Likely, these tokens were used through the 1820s ... in exchange for one beaver pelt. The North West token is among the latest pieces collected under the early American banner, and the only one to depict George IV, son of Revolution-inspiring British monarch George III. This example of the North West token displays granular fields with green and violet overtones across much of the brass and scattered porosity that intensifies on the reverse.

Famous s-80 Jefferson Head 1795 Cent The Garrett specimen, VF25

3052 1795 Jefferson Head, Plain VF25 nGC. s-80, B-11, low

R.5. One of the most curious and sought-after large cents, the 1795 Jefferson Head arguably is not a large cent at all; modern numismatic scholars believe that the dies were the work of John Harper (no relation to the consignor), who was seeking a coinage contract in the vein of the Fugio cent. To experienced large cent collectors, the Jefferson Head is recognizable immediately, as the forward-swirling lowest curl is like no Mint product struck to that time. This is the Garrett specimen, easily pedigreed by the depression at the rim over the RT of LIBERTY; the Garrett cataloger called this a rim cut, yet it seems smoother. Moderately worn surfaces are deep brown, almost teak, with a suggestion of blue in the overtone. Interiors are remarkably smooth, and the overall eye appeal is excellent. Respected copper authorities Noyes and Bland give the piece net grades (in EAC terms) of VG10 and Fine 12, ranking 12th and 11th in their respective censuses of the variety. This coins pedigree is almost as impressive as the piece itself, stretching back to Dr. Edward Maris and running through three generations of Garretts. One of the more amusing stories (in retrospect, at least) about this piece is that it was left in the back of a taxicab by Tom Morley, along with other purchases from the Garrett auction. The full story, including how the coins were returned by an honest cabdriver, can be found in the January 1980 installment of Penny-Wise, as told by Morley himself; more abbreviated versions of the story have circulated in coin-dealer lore ever since. Our EAC grade Fine 12. Ex: Dr. Edward Maris; Harlan P. Smith (6/1886), lot 270, $50; T. Harrison Garrett; Robert Garrett (1919); John Work Garrett; Johns Hopkins University (Bowers and Ruddy, 11/1979), lot 80, $7,500; Tom Morley; John W. Adams (4/1981); Denis W.

1857 n-5 Proof-only large Cent, PR65 Red Ted naftzgers Finest Known

3058 1857 PR65 Red PCGs. CaC. n-5, High R.5. In the Naftzger

catalog, Bob Grellman grades this piece PR66 and calls it finest known. Bill Noyes assigns the same grade and also places it first in his census. We see no reason to call it anything less. The cataloger for the 1952 ANA Sale wrote that this is By far the finest Proof Large Cent we have ever seen. Few Proof Pennies have survived in this preservation, and many of those have been tampered with. A decade earlier, the Morgenthau cataloger was doing his patriotic duty during World War II when he wrote: Brilliant red proof, saving valuable paper for the war effort. This amazing Red Gem proof large cent has brilliant orange mint color with traces of steel-blue toning and a few tiny carbon specks. Those trivial specks are visible in the 1952 ANA catalog plate, indicating no change over the last 60 years, and no risk of change in the future. The fields are flawless, with light die polishing lines that limit the depth of the mirrored fields. The polishing lines are characteristic of the proof-only N-5 die pair, and are visible to some extent on all known specimens. This amazing proof large cent offers incredible aesthetic appeal and is destined for a world-class cabinet. Our EAC grade PR66. Population: 1 in 65 Red, 0 finer (1/12). Ex: J.C. Morgenthau (6/1942), lot 372; Henry C. Hines; Homer K. Downing (1952 ANA Sale, New Netherlands, et al., 8/1952), lot 2225, where it realized $190; R.E.

Choice 1918-s lincoln Cent Elusive Example With Red surfaces


3102 1913 Ms67 Red PCGs. With only five MS67 Red examples of the 1913 cent certified by PCGS and none numerically finer (1/12), this issue is a serious bottleneck entry for top-level Lincoln cent Registry Set enthusiasts. Consider this an opportunity to leapfrog the competition, as well as a simply beautiful example of an early Red Lincoln cent. Pale copper-pink surfaces prevail on this bright yet slightly satiny Superb Gem, while an area at the upper right reverse has a richer peach hue. The detail is crisp, and while minor carbon is noted at the left obverse rim and lower reverse, the all-around eye appeal remains excellent. (#2461) 3103 1914 Ms65 Red PCGs. This sharply detailed Gem has brilliant orange mint color with satin luster and slight mellowing along the obverse border. A few scattered grade-consistent marks are noted, but no spots are visible.

Fresh copper-orange luster shows few flaws, though a tiny vertical mark is noted under the word LIBERTY and a small flyspeck is noted to the right of Lincolns forehead. A high-quality coin: It is the single finest example of the overmintmark variety in the PCGS Population Report, and there are only 49 numerically finer Red examples of the regular variety (2/12). 3121 1955 Doubled Die obverse aU50 nGC.

3115 1923-s Ms65 Red and Brown nGC. The 1923-S is scarce with significant red color and a strong strike. This piece has both. That being said, the red on this piece, as on all original 1923-S cents is a deeper red and not the bright orange-red color seen on, say, a 1919. This is an exceptionally attractive example with problemfree surfaces and no discernable marks. Census: 40 in 65 Red and Brown, 0 finer (2/12). (#2547) 3116 1924-D Ms64 Red and Brown PCGs. This is an amazing Lincoln cent, from an issue that rarely has any amount of original mint color. Both sides have satin luster with deep orange mint color and hints of blue toning. PCGS has certified just 25 finer Red and Brown specimens (1/12).(#2553)

Only minor marks are present aside from a faint line east of the E in ONE. Not the rarest major doubled die of the series (that honor belongs to the 1958) but unquestionably the most dramatic. (#2825) 3125 1972 Doubled Die obverse Ms66 Red nGC. Fs-101. There are a number of 1972 doubled die varieties listed in Cherrypickers, but the reference isnt needed to attribute FS-101, given the extraordinary strength of the obverse doubling.

3126 1909 PR66 Red and Brown PCGs. A substantial mintage of 2,342 proofs was struck after the designers initials were removed from the reverse die. This is an exceptionally attractive 1909 Plain cent. The strike shows the expected sharpness, as only seen on proofs. This is especially evident on the squared borders, sharp definition on the bowtie as well as other design features. The surfaces retain a generous amount of original red with substantial lime green also present on each side (perhaps 50%). This is a special 1909 proof cent for the astute buyer who recognizes the value represented by high-grade coins with Red and Brown surfaces. Population: 24 in 66 Red and Brown, 3 finer (1/12).

The surfaces of this nearGem matte proof Lincoln cent combine bright orange luster with medium brown and pale blue toning. The strike is sharp and eye appeal is excellent.(#3319)

3132 1990 no s Proof Cent in a Government set. At first glance, this appears to be a normal 1990 proof set in the government case. Closer inspection reveals that the cent, a fully Red piece with moderate to heavy contrast, is actually of the rare No S variety. The obverse rim displays moderate aqua toning from the nearby holder. The other four pieces are moderately to heavily contrasted with minimal patina. (Total: 5 coins)

1990 no s Proof Cent in Government set High Quality and Contrast

3133 1990 no s Proof set in Government Packaging. A fortunate proof set customer received a great bonus in 1990, as the cent in this set lacks the S mintmark. All coins are minimally toned with excellent contrast; the cent in particular has Deep Cameo contrast or nearly so. The copper-plated fields show extensive microtexture that does not interfere with the reflectivity. (Total: 5 coins)

Any example of the circulation 1885 three cent nickel is prized, but especially a Gem such as the present piece.

Very few high-grade overdates have been discovered since the first coin was found in 1996. The surfaces glow with satiny mint luster and each side has light gray-golden and rose patina. Population: 12 in 64, 4 finer (1/12). (#93924)

important aU50 1916 Doubled Die nickel Boldly Doubled Date

3177 1916 Doubled Die obverse aU50 nGC. Fs-101. Lightly worn over both sides with muted gray surfaces showing accents of reddish-tan color. The rehubbing on this variety is strong and clearly visible, even without a glass; the 9 and 6 are especially pronounced. It is so clearly evident that it is difficult to imagine why this variety remained undiscovered until 1962. The Doubled Die 1916 nickel is perhaps the first among peers for the major Buffalo nickel die varieties. It is elusive in all grades complicated by the wear-prone nature of the date area and virtually unobtainable in AU and Mint State. Census: 5 in 50, 36 finer (1/12). (#3931)

3178 1916 Doubled Die obverse Ms63 nGC. Fs-101. In CONECA parlance (the Combined Organizations of

Numismatic Error Collectors of America), the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse Buffalo has been described as an example of pivoted hub doubling, where the dual hubbing is rotated about a pivot point near the rim. But a close look at this variety adds substance to a point that group makes on its website (www.conecaonline.org) where it has gotten away from such technical descriptions in favor of the more-generic hub doubling error or doubled die error: In its infancy, the collecting of hub doubled coins, commonly known as doubled dies, centered around the circumstances that produced the various kinds of doubling known. For example, the doubling on some coins appeared all the way around the rim lettering in a clockwise or counter-clockwise fashion. Other coins exhibited doubling on just some of the rim lettering. On other coins, the doubling was directed toward the center or the rim. Still on others the doubling affected only certain design elements. Thus the following classes of hub doubling were proposed, principally by Alan Herbert, to explain these differences. Most hub doubling is now regarded as a hybrid of these classes. It is very difficult with only a coin in hand to logically backtrack and find the cause of its hub doubling. So many things can and do happen in the hubbing process that figuring out exactly what happened in each case may not be possible. Again, the important thing is recognizing the variety as true hub doubling, not in determining to which class of hub doubling it belongs.

On the 1916 Doubled Die Buffalo, the doubling is clearly boldest in the region of the date, appearing to be pivoted hub doubling with the pivot point opposite about 1:30 near the obverse rim, a location at which the doubling is too minute to be perceived. But something else is going on, as well. The doubling of the date is not of the carbon-copy variety not even an off-center carbon copy. The first appearance of the date is of course level on the coin, but the second, doubled occurrence of the date appears to tilt slightly upward from left to right an understandable observance, given our comprehension of pivoted hub doubling. What is more difficult to explain, however: On the doubled date, the first 1 is barely visible, with only part of its top showing. Each successive digit shows more detail toward the bottom, with the last 6 nearly complete on the bottom loop. What happened to cause this phenomenon? The second hub blow appears to have been a glancing one, with planar misalignment between hub and the die it was striking. It is not only the extreme elusiveness of this variety, but its extreme oddness as well, that contributes to its appeal. This example of the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse nickel must have been certified at least a few years ago, for the label uses the old Fivaz-Stanton number, FS-016. The coin itself is luminous under a mix of light gray and greengold shadings with occasional glimpses of lavender and violet. It is strongly appealing despite wispy abrasions and a flyspeck to the southeast of the portraits chin, and the strike is decent, if a trifle soft on the bisons shoulder. An important and rare Mint State survivor of this cherished variant. Census: 4 in 63, 4 finer (2/12). (#3931)

VF20 1918/7-D overdate nickel solid Midrange Example

Choice 1919-D Buffalo nickel above-average strike

3179 1918/7-D VF20 PCGs. Fs-101. A solid midrange representative of this ever-popular overdated Buffalo nickel issue. Moderately worn surfaces have a nickel-gray base with green and sage overtones clustered around the field-device boundaries. The date area is sharp, and the 8 shows its diagnostic corner from the 7 at top right. (#3939) 3180 1918-s Ms63 PCGs. This Select Mint State piece has a typical strike with central obverse and reverse weakness that limits the grade. The satin surfaces have brilliant gray luster with hints of champagne toning.(#3940)

3183 1919-D Ms64 PCGs. CaC. The 1919-D Buffalo nickel is known for striking problems, and the date is scarce in high grade. This attractive Choice example shows just a touch of softness on the hair above the braid and the bisons shoulder, but other devices are sharp. The surfaces exhibit vibrant mint luster and pleasing shades of champagne-gold and ice-blue toning. (#3942) 3184 1919-s Ms63 PCGs. CaC. Considerable weakness appears at the centers on both sides of this Select Mint State Buffalo nickel. The surfaces have pastel blue and iridescent toning over satin luster.(#3943)

sharply struck 1919-D nickel, Ms64

noteworthy Gem 1919-s nickel

3181 1919-D Ms64 PCGs. The 1919-D, while acknowledged as challenging in many respects, is available for a price in grades through MS63 but borders on scarce any finer. This near-Gem has pale nickel-blue and richer golden patina, with the latter color appearing toward the right on each side. Detail is impressive. PCGS has graded 69 coins as MS65 or better (1/12). (#3942)

1919-D Buffalo nickel Boldly Detailed near-Gem

3182 1919-D Ms64 PCGs. This issue is routinely seen with a weak strike but the present piece is a remarkable exception with virtually full design definition. The satiny gray surfaces have light gold toning on the obverse, rose and blue on the reverse. PCGS has only certified 69 finer (2/12). (#3942)

3185 1919-s Ms65 nGC. While this earlier San Francisco Buffalo nickel issue is readily available in lesser grades, it emerges as a condition rarity at the Gem level, and NGC and PCGS have graded only 10 finer examples between them (1/12). This MS65 coin is broadly luminous with a considerable quicksilver element under gold, orange, and lavender-violet patina. As often seen, the strike is soft through the centers, though on the reverse, the bisons shoulder is better-defined than usual. On the bisons head, the horn is fully outlined but not rounded. A vertical mark just to the right of the braid contributes to the grade. (#3943)

1921-s Buffalo nickel, Ms63 nice Toning and luster

Richly Toned Ms65 1920-s nickel

3189 1921-s Ms63 PCGs. CaC. This impressive Select example is sharply detailed in most areas but shows just a touch of softness on the bisons shoulder. The surfaces display vibrant mint luster and attractive shades of pale green, gray, and ice-blue toning, with exceptional eye appeal. The 1921-S claims a low mintage of 1.5 million pieces. (#3948) 3190 1923 Ms66 PCGs. More than 35 million 1923 Buffalo nickels were minted, suggesting the date is common. However, in Gem or finer grades it is conditionally rare. This Premium Gem is exceeded by only 10 finer PCGS certified coins (1/12). Both sides have delicate gold toning over satiny gray surfaces with brilliant mint luster.(#3949) 3191 1923-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This Choice Mint State Buffalo nickel is fully lustrous with satiny gray surfaces and delicate champagne toning. Although shy of a full strike, the details are sharper than usual for this branch Mint nickel. A few trivial marks and tiny carbon specks are evident with a glass. PCGS has only certified 42 finer (1/12).(#3950)

1923-s nickel, Ms65 lovely surfaces, Well struck

3187 1920-s Ms65 nGC. Most authorities on the Buffalo nickels are critical of the quality of 1920-S nickels, with both strike and luster given the proverbial thumbs-down. While the strike is not spectacular on the present Gem and good luck finding a coin with such a strike! the luster and toning more than make up any deficit in eye appeal. Liquid-frost luster is silver-to-blue in the centers with lush gold, orange, rose, and violet peripheral elements. Surface quality is excellent, as demanded of a Gem. The sole MS65 example of the issue known to NGC, with only one MS66 (nonStar) coin numerically finer in the Census (1/12). (#3946) 3188 1921-s Ms62 PCGs. Although more available than certain later S-mint Buffalos of the 1920s such as the 1926-S, the 21-S is still a rare issue. This satiny Mint State example has light gray luster with delicate rose and iridescent toning.(#3948)

3192 1923-s Ms65 nGC. Like all denominations from this date and mintmark, the 1923-S nickel was minted in fairly modest numbers but appears to have never been saved in any appreciable quantity in mint condition. Those that do qualify as Uncirculated are generally only of average sharpness and only rarely merit a Gem rating. This boldly defined specimen is toned in soft sky-blue and golden hues with much underlying brilliance. An important offering for the advanced Buffalo nickel collector. Census: 32 in 65, 6 finer (2/12). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2005), lot 5996. (#3950)

impressive superb Gem 1926 nickel

3193 1924-D Ms65 PCGs. CaC. Sharply detailed on the obverse, this attractive Gem Buffalo nickel shows just the slightest softness on the bisons shoulder. The surfaces are blanketed in iridescent layers of ice-blue and golden-brown toning, with vibrant mint luster. Population: 98 in 65, 1 finer (1/12). (#3952) 3194 1924-s aU53 PCGs. A pleasing example with traces of remaining luster, this light gray specimen has hints of subdued gold toning. A sharp strike is evident despite having light wear.(#3953)

3198 1926 Ms67 PCGs. Though this Philadelphia issue was struck in great numbers, ensuring its availability in lesser grades, it remains a condition rarity at the MS67 level. This Superb Gem has strong yet subtle luster, pale nickel-white with a partial green-gold overlay. Well-defined with smooth surfaces. Population: 28 in 67, 0 finer (1/12). (#3957)

lightly Toned near-Gem 1926-s nickel

luminous Ms63 1924-s nickel Challenging Mid-Decade issue

3195 1924-s Ms63 nGC. Glimpses of green-gold patina grace broadly luminous, subtly quicksilver surfaces on this S-mint Buffalo nickel. The 1924-S is a lower-mintage issue, seldom-seen in Select and better conditions, though examples usually are available for a price. The present piece is decent for the grade, if softly struck with wispy horizontal abrasions on the high points. (#3953)

1924-s nickel, Ms64 attractively Toned and Well-struck

3196 1924-s Ms64 PCGs. This is a well, but not fully struck example, and few are known with a full strike of this issue. The softly frosted mint luster is lightly covered with reddish-golden and lilac toning on each side, and the surfaces are surprisingly bright beneath the patina. Both obverse and reverse show minimal abrasions for an MS64. (#3953) 3197 1925-s Ms63 PCGs. Both sides of this Select Mint State Buffalo nickel combine gold and gray toning with satin surfaces. A small line of darker toning accompanies minor lamination at the upper obverse.(#3956)

3199 1926-s Ms64 PCGs. As the only regular-issue Buffalo nickel to have a sub-million mintage, the 1926-S is remarkably popular regardless of condition, but especially in better circulated grades and Mint State. The 1926-S remains available for a price into the Select level, but MS64 coins are conditionally scarce, and Gems rare. This luminous near-Gem has pale blue, lavender, and yellow tints over quicksilver fields and softly struck but minimally marked devices. A medium-sized fleck is noted at the rim, due south of the portraits chin, but this is one of the few distinguishing features of the piece. PCGS has certified 11 numerically finer examples (1/12).

Exquisite Ms66 1927-s nickel

3200 1926-s Ms64 PCGs. As the only regular-issue Buffalo nickel with a sub-million mintage, the 1926-S has received plenty of attention from collectors over the years, and in a wide range of grades. The 1926-S is accessible in grades through MS63 and available for a price even in near-Gem, though anything finer is a definite condition rarity. This MS64 example has a golden overtone across broadly luminous surfaces that show a quicksilver element. Both sides are decently detailed for the date, and the portrait has a dab of lavender close to the feathers. PCGS has graded just 11 coins as MS65 or better (1/12). (#3959) 3201 1927-s Ms63 PCGs. CaC. Lustrous light gray surfaces are slightly subdued, limiting the grade of this attractive nickel. Hints of pale gold toning appear with a few trivial marks and carbon flecks.(#3962)

Gem 1927-s Buffalo nickel sharply Detailed, Better Date

3203 1927-s Ms66 nGC. Among other things, the low-availability 1927-S nickel provides a striking lesson in how population figures can become distorted. The date is a condition rarity from MS65 up, with a total of 19 MS65 coins known to NGC, five in MS66, and none finer (1/12). While there are three grading events for MS65 coins, by contrast, there are four for MS66 , out of just five events! Either a great coincidence has rendered most MS66 1927-S nickels astoundingly appealing, or resubmissions are afoot. In either case, this is the sole non-Star MS66 coin in the Census Report, though it could look the part of a Star survivor. It is well-defined with delicate jewel-tones over shimmering and semireflective luster, pale emerald-gold at the outer zones with soft sapphire and amethyst shadings at the centers. (#3962) 3204 1928-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. Sharply detailed in most areas, this delightful Choice specimen shows just a touch of softness on the hair and Bisons shoulder. The surfaces are enhanced by shades of champagne-gold and ice-blue patina, with vibrant mint luster. (#3965) 3205 1929-D Ms65 PCGs. CaC. This delightful Gem displays vivid champagne-gold toning and vibrant mint luster. The bisons shoulder and head show a little softness, but the horn is complete and eye appeal is outstanding.(#3967) 3206 1936-D Ms67 nGC. CaC. Intense gold and iridescent toning appears on both sides of this frosty and highly lustrous Buffalo nickel that is tied for the finest NGC has certified. Census: 11 in 67, 0 finer (2/12).(#3978) 3207 1937-D Three-legged aU55 nGC. Fs-901. A pleasing Choice AU example of this famous die-polishing error, with lightly worn design elements, strong, subtle mint luster, and mixed silver-gray and light gold toning.(#3982)

3202 1927-s Ms65 anaCs. Attractive jade-green, crimson, gray, and gold toning embraces this unmarked and mildly prooflike better date nickel. Just 3,430,000 pieces were struck, and the vast majority of this production went into circulation and stayed there. Unlike most 1927-S nickels, the present piece has a good strike, since the date and mintmark are sharp, and the bisons hair and horn are crisp. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 7/06), lot 407, which realized $8,625. (#3962)

Celebrated 1937-D Three-legged nickel an attractive Gem

3208 1937-D Three-legged Ms62 PCGs. Fs-901. Neon iridescence is a rare phrase to describe a Buffalo nickels toning, yet that is the best shorthand for the profusion of chartreuse, electric-blue, hotpink, and hues in-between saturating each side. Beyond the patina, of course, this coin has great appeal as a Mint State example of the popular Three-Legged die state of the 1937-D nickel, minimally abraded but with blended high-point detail. (#3982)

Popular 1937-D Three-legged nickel a Coveted Gem Example

3210 1937-D Three-legged Ms65 nGC. Fs-901. This Gem example of the collector classic Three-Legged 1937-D Buffalo nickel was certified several years ago, as demonstrated by the use of the old Fivaz-Stanton number, FS-020.2, on the label. The grade, however, is far from dated, as the coin shows all the necessary vibrancy and surface preservation for an MS65 example. Green-to-gold outer toning gives way to nickel-silver interiors that show elements of frostiness to the luster. The reverse is in an earlier die state, with the rust lumps under the bison visible but faint. Census: 56 in 65, 18 finer (2/12). (#3982) 3211 1938-D Ms67+ PCGs. Only a few finer 1938-D nickels have been certified at PCGS. This Superb Gem has brilliant gold and iridescent toning over its satiny gray luster. Population: 9 in 67+, 8 finer (1/12).(#3984)

3209 1937-D Three-legged Ms65 PCGs. Fs-901. The ThreeLegged 1937-D nickels were discovered soon after their release, and so a number of higher-graded examples are available to contemporary collectors. Even so, the variant is a borderline condition rarity at the Gem level and very rare any better. This MS65 coin, housed in a second-generation PCGS holder, is softly struck but frosty with gold and peach overtones across otherwise nickel-white surfaces. As expected for the grade, both sides are minimally abraded, and the usual missing-foreleg and die rust diagnostics are plain. PCGS has graded only four numerically finer representatives (1/12).

1916 Buffalo nickel, PR64 low-Mintage Key to the series

1937 nickel, Gleaming PR67+

3212 1916 PR64 PCGs. CaC. The 1916 has the lowest mintage of the matte proof series, and not surprisingly is the scarcest of the five proof issues that make up this short, completable set. The absolute fullness of the strike on each side is always refreshing to see on a Buffalo nickel, and all too often is only found on proofs. This example is lightly and evenly toned in subtle shadings of lilac and golden with no obvious contact marks to explain the grade. (#3993) 3213 1936 Type onesatin Finish PR66 nGC. The Type One or Satin Finish proofs of 1936 were a throwback to the matte proof era. The same year also saw the first production of brilliant proof Buffalo nickels.

Harper, Jr. Collection.(#3994) 3214 1936 Type onesatin Finish PR67 PCGs.

Razor-sharp definition is evident on all design elements and the deeply reflective, brilliant surfaces show no mentionable distractions. The popular Type Two variety was produced later in the year, due to collector dissatisfaction with the earlier Satin Finish coins. (#3995) 3216 1937 PR66 nGC. A lovely Premium Gem, this amber toned proof is free of carbon. The reverse has a few splashes of pale blue to enhance the eye appeal. Brilliant proof Buffalo nickels were only produced in 1936 and 1937 with limited opportunities for type collectors. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#3996)

3217 1937 PR67+ PCGs. CaC. This is a wonderfully preserved proof Buffalo nickel. The fields display unfathomable depth of reflectivity and each side is balanced in appearance. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect is the lack of spots or flyspecks, an uncommon surface trait on this two-year type. Each side is mostly brilliant with just the slightest tinge of peripheral golden color. Population: 7 in 67+, 11 finer (1/12). (#3996)

iconic 1792 Half Disme, Fine Details Judd-7, nations First silver Coinage

3221 1792 Half Disme, Judd-7, Pollock-7, R.4 Damaged

nGC Details. Fine. The numismatic slogan that inspired the title of a PBS documentary is Money: History in Your Hands. Few coins can make so strong a claim to being part of history as the 1792 half disme, the first coinage type struck after the passage of the Mint Act of 1792. In the 1792 half disme is the first expression of Liberty as an allegorical figure on an official U.S. coin, described as the Parent of Science & Industry; the eagle too makes its debut. The spelling half disme is singular in the official U.S. coinage history, replaced by 10 C. and later one dime, but even this early variant has its charm. The story of the 1792 half disme has been told (and embellished) throughout the years, and only recently have scholars, most notably Joel Orosz and Carl Herkowitz, cut through to some well-documented truths. (George Washington put up silver for the 1792 half dismes: true. That it came from tableware: unsubstantiated.) Despite the extant misinformation, the essential nature of the 1792 half dismes as very scarce historical artifacts is not threatened. Collectors know this, and many examples are in strong hands that are reluctant to part with the pieces. In the case of this Fine Details example, it takes the offering of a remarkable collection to bring the piece to the auction block. While the coin shows peripheral damage, most visibly as a cut to the upper left reverse and another crossing the upperright reverse lettering, this well-worn piece retains considerable majesty. Blue and gold overtones settle on medium-gray surfaces that are better-defined on the obverse. Put the factors together, and this representative has a look far superior to what the Fine Details and Damaged descriptors might suggest, particularly when the coin is displayed reverse-up. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#11020)

1859 Half Dime, PR66 Ultra Cameo Hollow stars subtype

1868 seated Half Dime, Ms66 Remarkable Prooflike surfaces

3233 1868 Ms66 PCGs. CaC. This impressive Seated Liberty half dime displays reflective prooflike surfaces, with attractive shades of champagne-gold and lavender toning. The design elements are well-detailed and few signs of contact are visible on either side. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 10 in 66, 2 finer (1/12). (#4392)

Toned 1869 Half Dime, Ms66

3236 1859 PR66 Ultra Cameo nGC. There are only two reasonably collectible proof half dimes from the 1850s, and this date is sometimes considered a separate type issue. Thus the two collectible dates of the decade, 1858 and 1859, are each separate design types. The 1859 half dimes have hollow centers to each star, a slimmed down Liberty especially noted in her arm, and other very minor design modifications. This modified Liberty Seated design was engraved by Anthony C. Paquet, an assistant to James Longacre in the engraving department. Less than 800 Proofs were produced, and they are only infrequently encountered in Gem Quality. This impressive Premium Gem is deeply mirrored with frosty silver luster on the devices, creating sensational contrast on each side. A few tiny lint marks are evident on the obverse. Census: 1 in 66 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (1/12). (#94438) 3237 1862 PR65 PCGs. The 1862 is a scarce issue with only 550 proofs minted. This is a pleasing example with deeply mirrored fields and each side draped in golden-rose and occasional glints of blue. Fully struck, as expected.(#4445) 3238 1865 PR66 PCGs. Apple-green toning dominates the obverse, while the reverse is ocean-blue and plum-mauve with lighter golden-russet patina at the border. A well struck and exemplary Premium Gem. Only 500 proofs were struck for this Civil War date. Housed in an old green-label PCGS holder. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2009), lot 868. (#4448)

3234 1869 Ms66 PCGs. CaC. Toning in various blues is a constant at the margins, though the centers are gold-orange on the obverse and more mint-green on the reverse. Luster is flashy in the fields, though the reflectivity is limited. Impressively preserved, as befits a Premium Gem. Population: 7 in 66, 5 finer (1/12). (#4394) 3235 1871 Ms65 PCGs. CaC. An impressive Gem, this common date Seated half dime is rarely encountered any finer. This specimen is brilliant with frosty white surfaces and a splash of gold on the reverse. Population: 26 in 65, 20 finer (1/12).(#4398)

Gem Proof 1866 seated Half Dime Rare Example With Deep Cameo surfaces

EaRly DiMEs
semireflective 1798 large 8 Dime, JR-4 Richly Toned Ms62

3239 1866 PR65 Deep Cameo PCGs. Only 725 proof Seated Liberty half dimes were coined in 1866, to accompany a tiny business-strike mintage of 10,000 pieces. The sharply detailed frosty devices of this impressive Gem contrast profoundly with the brightly mirrored fields. Wisps of pale gold toning accent the pleasing surfaces. Population: 2 in 65 Deep Cameo, 1 finer (1/12). (#94449) 3240 1867 PR65 PCGs. Blue and violet are the major colors of this Gem proof from late in the half dime series. Flashy with a measure of light apricot at the center of the reverse. Population: 21 in 65, 16 finer (1/12).(#4450) 3241 1868 PR64 PCGs. A stunning near-Gem housed in a green-label PCGS holder, this half dime has deeply mirrored fields with frosty silver devices, and is an obvious Cameo proof, although certified before PCGS used that designation. A splash of gunmetal toning appears on the obverse. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#4451) 3242 1868 PR64 Cameo PCGs. CaC. Both sides of this splendid Choice Cameo proof have light gold toning over deeply mirrored fields and highly lustrous devices. Population: 10 in 64 Cameo, 7 finer (1/12).(#84451) 3243 1869 PR66 PCGs. CaC. Elegantly toned with strong gold-green outer zones and rose and blue-green interiors. This Premium Gem proof has bold mirrors under the patina, and the well-preserved obverse even retains a hint of contrast. Population: 9 in 66, 2 finer (1/12).(#4452) 3244 1870 PR65 nGC. A sharply detailed Gem proof, this fully brilliant and untoned half dime has deeply mirrored fields and satiny devices with pleasing contrast. The strike is full.(#4453) 3245 1798 large 8 Ms62 nGC. JR-4, R.3. Housed in a priorgeneration holder that does not give a specific attribution, but the sizable, non-overdated final digit on the obverse is diagnostic for the die pair. This is an earlier die state, not cracked in the right obverse field nor broken at the eagles left wing, and the semireflective luster under gold, pink, violet, and blue patina is easy to appreciate. The reverse has bolder colors, including a long nearcircle of cerulean. The strike is uneven, soft on the stars but better on the central devices, and despite an accumulation of minor faults, the eye appeal is excellent. (#4466)

Magnificent Ms66 1805 Dime JR-2, Four Berries

3246 1805 4 Berries Ms66 PCGs. CaC. JR-2, R.2. Just two

die varieties are known, and they are quickly and easily distinguished by the berry count on the reverse with either four berries or five berries. Both varieties were coined from a common obverse die. The five berries variety was struck first, followed by this four berries variety with a thin obverse die crack through ERT. This variety is the second most common die marriage of all Draped Bust dimes, behind only the 1807 issue. In addition to the die crack, this example also exhibits fine clash marks on both sides, and a patch of die roughness on the reverse between the D and the left wing. The obverse has the standard 7x6 star layout with stars 1, 7, and 13 each distant from the devices. Star 8 lightly touches the top of Y. The date is closely spaced and the digit 5 leans slightly to the right. Its tip lightly touches the drapery, and is extended well into the drapery by a die scratch. The reverse die has a distinctive arrangement of 13 stars, in two rows of six each, with a single star right of the eagles head. The arrangement is known as a line star pattern, unlike the usual arcing star layout. A single star is located high above the eagles head, with five stars to the left and seven to the right. None of the letters in the statutory legend touch any of the devices, and there is considerable space between STATES and OF. This is an amazing Premium Gem example with sharp design details and satiny luster. Both sides exhibit pale reddish-lilac color with peripheral gold and iridescent toning. A tiny mark is noted on Libertys jaw, and a few faint hairlines can be seen on the reverse with close inspection. Otherwise, the surfaces are pristine and wonderful. This remarkable Gem possesses splendid aesthetic appeal and will undoubtedly be a prized item for its new owner. Population: 4 in 66, 3 finer (1/12). (#4477)

3249 1837 no stars, large Date Ms65 PCGs. Fortin-101b. Gerry Fortin refers to the intersecting obverse radial die cracks as pie shaped. Attractively toned in dusky walnut-tan and sea-green shades. Lustrous and boldly struck with unperturbed surfaces and excellent eye appeal. Housed in an old green label holder. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#4561) 3250 1849-o aU58 PCGs. Fortin 102. The Small O mintmark is high and centered on this reverse die. The 1849-O of either mintmark size is a rare issue, especially in higher grades. This near-Mint specimen is destined for an advanced specialized collection. The surfaces have brilliant and frosty silver luster with a strong strike and only a few scattered marks. Population: 6 in 58, 10 finer (1/12). (#4592) 3251 1853 arrows Ms64 PCGs. Delicate champagne toning appears on both sides of this sharply defined and highly lustrous nearGem. Housed in a green-label PCGS holder, this specimen has exceptional eye appeal for the grade. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#4603) 3252 1854-o arrows Ms64 PCGs. This well-detailed Choice specimen is blanketed in shades of green and bluish-gray patina. The surfaces are lustrous beneath the toning and show few signs of contact. Population: 15 in 64, 9 finer (1/12).(#4606) 3253 1862-s VF35 PCGs. CaC. Golden-tan and violet at the borders with dusky gray interiors. This Choice VF coin is a smooth and pleasing example of an issue that is actually a condition rarity so fine. Population: 3 in 35, 17 finer (1/12).(#4636) 3254 1867-s aU50 PCGs. Satiny surfaces retain considerable luster beneath gold and iridescent toning on both sides. A scarce issue, much more elusive than the 140,000 coin mintage suggests. (#4646)

3247 1829 large 10C Ms66 PCGs. JR-2, R.2. Not specifically labeled as such on the first-generation PCGS holder, but plain on attribution. The JR-2 is the more available of two Large Denomination die pairs, though undeniably a condition rarity in better-than-Gem grades. This MS66 coin has effusive luster and a decidedly above-average strike. Green-gold overtones grace each side but are richer on the obverse. An impressively preserved coin and clearly Condition Census-worthy, though exactly where it lands is uncertain. The PCGS Population Report lists one MS66 Large Denomination example and one finer, in MS67 (1/12), though this coin, certified under what is now the Small Denomination PCGS number, is not listed as a Large Denomination coin in the Report. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#94511)

Valuable Choice aU 1874-CC arrows Dime seldom-seen, Especially so Fine

3255 1874-CC arrows aU55 nGC. The 1874-CC Arrows dime

was made in the meager quantity of only 10,817 coins, the last of the lowest-mintage Carson City dime issues and the key to the Seated Liberty set. Rusty Goe writes in his 2003 reference The Mint on Carson Street concerning the issue: Throughout the decades the annual rare coin auction circuit has traditionally offered only one 1874-CC dime per year, and some years not even one. Buyers are lined up ready to compete at every given opportunity. Goe notes that collector extraordinaire Louis Eliasberg only managed to have a VG8 coin in his collection. With the availability of Internet auctions records now widespread, we know of six auctions of 1874-CC dimes from January 2011 to February 2012. Most recently, a Fine 15 PCGS representative brought $16,100 in the February 2012 Official Long Beach Signature Auction, presented by Heritage. A Good 6 PCGS example sold in our FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2012), lot 5487, for $7,475, and an AG3 piece brought $4,313 in our September Long Beach auction, lot 3342. A VG8 PCGS piece realized $14,950 in our 2011 FUN Signature, lot 5483, yet a Fine 12 PCGS coin realized only $12,650 in the Stacks-Bowers Chicago ANA sale (8/2011), lot 8376, despite a Good 6 PCGS coin realizing $10,350 for the same firm just four days earlier in the Pre-ANA auction as lot 712. Those prices, of course, will come off as chicken-scratch compared to what this AU55 NGC example, our third 1874CC dime in as many months, will bring. Only lightly worn and still luminous, this well struck example has unusual surface texture under gold-to-green and blue patina. The texture is reminiscent of the so-called unalloyed Carson City dimes from earlier years that were struck from less-processed silver straight from the Comstock mines. An unusual coin, an undoubted condition rarity, and undeniably important. Census: 1 in 55, 1 finer (2/12). (#4669)

Full Bands Gem 1942/1 Dime First-Generation Holder

3287 1942/1 Ms65 Full Bands PCGs. Fs-101. Many of the most

important die varieties in U.S. numismatics go undiscovered for decades, waiting for an eagle-eyed collector to pick up on the subtle difference from the norm. Others are far more blatant, easily spotted by non-numismatists. While the 1955 Doubled Die Obverse cent is the defining example of a coin that can spur a treasure-hunt among the public, a more specific kind of doubled die the die-doubled overdate made its bow during World War II and was discovered almost immediately. The 1942/1 Philadelphia dime is so obviously deviant that some collectors have come to call it the 19412. Thanks to its early discovery, it was saved in higher overall grades than many other varieties, including the Denver counterpart to the 1942/1 dime, which is more often found in lesser circulated grades. Of course, a high average grade is meaningless to those collecting on the uppermost tier of condition rarity. For them, the only questions are what is available and what is better. In the case of the Full Bands 1942/1 dime, the answers in the PCGS Population Report are eight coins in MS65 Full Bands and six numerically finer (1/12). One of those eight coins has remained constant almost from the start: this Gem remains in its first-generation holder, a source of considerable cachet. Luminous surfaces are lightly but distinctly toned with pale blue and lavender elements across a pale gray base and a few stray dots of deeper color near the margins. The strike is sharp everywhere, not only the central reverse, and the all-around eye appeal is excellent. A memorable offering for the series enthusiast. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.

Proof set production was moved from Philadelphia to San Francisco in 1968, and a new error type emerged that same year with some 1968 proof sets having dimes that were missing the mintmark. Of course that error was possible on any denomination. Among dimes, such sets were issued in 1968, 1970, 1975, and 1983. Those of 1970 and 1983 are the most plentiful. This light gray Superb Gem Cameo proof has excellent eye appeal with virtually perfect surfaces. Population: 31 in 68 Cameo, 4 finer (1/12).(#85248)

The 1875 has a proof mintage of 2,790 pieces, the highest of the series, but is surprisingly elusive. PCGS has certified only 340 1875 proofs in all grades, many of which are undoubtedly resubmissions over the past quarter century.

3310 1815 aU55 PCGs. B-1, R.1. The Capped Bust Left design was first used on quarters in 1815, because the denomination was not minted from 1807-1815. Only one die variety is known for the date. This attractive Choice AU example is sharply detailed in most areas, but a little weakness shows on the eagles leg and claws. The fields show only minor abrasions, with some streaky goldentan toning.

The more under-the-radar die pair of the year, as it does not show the repunching at OF that has made the B-2 a Cherrypickers Guide darling. This amply luminous example has deep violet-gray peripheral toning that shifts through gold on its way to rose-gray at the center.(#5352) 3314 1835 XF45 PCGs. B-8, R.4.

Well struck except for star 6, and the few faint hair-thin obverse marks are unimportant to the grade. It was the quarters turn to move from Capped Bust to Seated motifs in 1838.

All affected denominations received arrows flanking the date, and for the first year, the quarter and half dollar had rays placed around their eagle devices.

3325 1870-CC VG8 nGC. CaC. With a reported mintage of 8,340 pieces, the 1870-CC is an immensely desirable quarter issue. Only a handful of survivors are available today, and most are worn heavily. In his The Mint on Carson Street, Rusty Goe (2003) praises the issue: The 1870-CC is unquestionably the second rarest date (behind the 1873-CC Without Arrows) in the Seated Liberty quarter series ... and is considered one of the most desirable classic rarities in all of U.S. coinage. Though only Very Good, this is an immensely desirable coin, primarily cloud-gray with elements of slate, tan, and dusty rose near the margins. The figure of Liberty shows few details, but on the shield, the BER of LIBERTY is bold, and the I and T on either side are weak but partly visible. The upper obverse and lower reverse rims show a touch more wear than the rest of the coin, but this is a minor concern. Surfaces are minimally marked save for a handful of flaws under the banner on the reverse. Census: 1 in 8, 22 finer (2/12). (#5477) 3326 1873 arrows Ms64 PCGs. CaC.

The eagle on the reverse is nicely defined, with only slight weakness on the body. The surfaces are mostly brilliant, with frosty luster that shines through pale gold and iridescent toning. Although an available date overall, most 1926-D quarters were poorly struck; many Mint State pieces only show about half of the date. Sharply defined examples are 20th century rarities.

The low mintage of the 1934-D makes it a semi-key in Mint State, and the issue is extremely rare at the MS67 level. The 1934 and 1934-D each have Medium Motto and Heavy Motto varieties.

The reverse has a small rim ding at 5 oclock, and faint adjustment marks are noted within the hair and at the obverse margin near 3:30. The presence of a die crack between the single leaf and the final S in STATES is unclear, which suggests that the piece could also be designated simply as O-101.

A heavy radial die crack at 10 oclock on the reverse is always seen on this more available 1811 variety. Deep golden-brown and gunmetal-gray toning blankets this lightly circulated example. Some luster remains, and the sole noticeable mark is on the obverse rim at 9 oclock. Ex: E.M. Rhodes (Heritage, 12/1983), one of three coins in lot 3531; collector flip included. From The Dr. John Y.

A large but low relief die lump on the eagles left (facing) wing identifies the variety of this prominently clashed near-Mint half dollar. Satin luster shimmers over rich cream-gray and steel-blue surfaces. Unabraded, though the reverse rim is irregular between 12 and 2 oclock. Ex: E.M.

Double clashed with several spindly obverse die cracks. (#6100)

3403 1812 Ms64 PCGs. o-110, R.1. Short die lines beneath the drapery left of the date are diagnostic for the obverse die, although they only appear on earlier die states. The reverse has the upper horizontal crossbar extended to the right, nearly all the way through the wing. This delightful Choice Mint State piece has a bold strike with frosty ivory luster and exceptional eye appeal. Speckled ebony toning appears on each side, but most would describe this splendid specimen as brilliant and untoned. Population: 48 in 64, 23 finer (1/12). (#6100)

3404 1815/2 improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. o-101, R.2. Lacking the reverse die cracks of the 101a, these two die states are the only collectible variants of 1815 half dollars. The surfaces are bright from cleaning but show a slight accent of gray patina over each side. A thin scratch can barely be made out in the left obverse field, otherwise the only marks of any note are located in a small cluster on the cheek of Liberty. (#6108)

3405 1815/2 aU53 nGC. CaC. o-101, R.2. The entire small mintage of 47,150 half dollars from 1815 was produced using a single pair of dies with the 1815/2 overdate, making an instant key in the series. The 1817/3 half dollar has the interesting distinction of being the most disparate Bust half variety between the overdigit and the underdigit at four years with the virtually unobtainable 1817/4 and the popular and available 1815/2 in second place. Slategray, lighter silver, rose, and gold hues run through still-lustrous fields, with the lightest color appearing as worn areas on the high points. The surfaces are nonetheless lightly circulated and show few marks of any note. Die clashing appears on each side, although the die state is too early for the reverse die cracks that distinguish the O-101a. (#6108)

3410 1832 small letters Ms62 PCGs. o-110, R.1. The small tine that protrudes from the top of Libertys cap is the most obvious die marker, while the softness at the A of STATES on the reverse is typical for the variety. Nicely struck otherwise and unmarked with soft luster beneath the delicate steel-gray and gold patina that graces each side. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 1510, which realized $1,207.50.(#6160) 3411 1833 Ms63 nGC. o-102, R.1. Star 1 is recut on the obverse of O-102, and a short extensive of the middle line of the rightmost shield stripe confirms the attribution. This Select Mint State 1833 half dollar has satin luster beneath grayish-gold and iridescent toning.(#6163)

3406 1815/2 aU55 PCGs. o-101a, R.3. A rising die crack through 50 C confirms the later die state. Luster fills the legends and devices of this boldly impressed key date half dollar.

Some russet colored speckles cling to the peripheries. A solitary hair-thin mark on the lower portrait is suitable for the grade.(#6177) 3415 1839-o Genuine PCGs. The PCGS number ending in .97 suggests Environmental Damage as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an XF specimen that has been corroded. Both sides are extremely dark, nearly black, with minor surface roughness. The obverse has peripheral die cracks including a meandering crack through the date. The reverse die is shattered. (#6181) 3416 1839-o improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc.

3407 1819/8 large 9 Ms63 PCGs. CaC. o-106, R.4. One of the finest examples of this very scarce variety to appear on the auction block in a decade, and a coin with a significant claim to being the finest available. Light abrasions on Libertys portrait have surprisingly little influence on the eye appeal, for they are overwhelmed by green-gold, silver-blue, and lavender-pink patina across warm luster. (#6119) 3408 1820/19 Curl Base 2 improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. o-102, R.1. An obvious overdate with much of the underdigit 9 present within the 0.

3418 1841-o Ms63 PCGs. WB-4, R.4. Large Mintmark. The 1841-O is moderately available in Uncirculated grades, mostly from the discovery of a small hoard on the site of the former Fort Harrison in Clearwater, Florida. One would suspect these pieces to show some degree of corrosion, but that is certainly not the case here. The surfaces show good mint luster and just the slightest hint of toning. Softly struck in the centers on each side.

The obverse is prooflike with cameo contrast and the reverse is lustrous with frosty mint brilliance.(#6373) 3429 1873 arrows Ms65 PCGs. The year 1873 brought many changes to U.S. numismatics. Henry R. Linderman began his second term as Mint director, serving until 1878. The Latin Monetary Union, comprising France, Italy, Belgium, and Switzerland, adopted a gold standard. The Crime of 73 legislated the two cent piece, trime, and silver half dime out of existence, omitted the Seated Liberty silver dollar from the list of authorized coins, introduced the Trade dollar, and increased the weight of minor silver coinage. The half dollars weight increased from 12.44 gm to 12.50 gm of .900 fine silver. This is a stunning Gem Arrows half dollar from just after the change, richly toned with lush shades of olive-green on the obverse that complement pinkish-silver and pastel lilac-blue hues on the reverse. A boldly struck and delightful type coin. Population: 10 in 65, 4 finer (1/12). (#6343)

1864 Ultra Cameo PR64 Half Dollar Brilliant and starkly Contrasted

3438 1877 PR63 nGC. Type Two Reverse. On the obverse, light russet central toning gives way to deeper blue at the rims. Some hairlines in the obverse fields limit the grade. Ex: Stacks (7/1952), lot 418; Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 3399.(#6438) 3439 1881 PR64 PCGs. This is a deeply toned example of this lowmintage proof issue. Rich rose, blue, and yellow toning covers each side with bright mirroring from the fields. Only 975 proofs were struck. Population: 75 in 64, 34 finer (1/12).(#6442) 3440 1886 PR62 nGC. Fully mirrored fields and satiny devices hide beneath the lilac and iridescent toning on this proof Seated half dollar. Trivial contact marks are mostly hidden in the devices. (#6447)

3436 1864 PR64 Ultra Cameo nGC. The 1864 is a scarce Civil War issue with a low mintage of only 470 proofs. Few high grade examples are known of the 1864 and even fewer with Cameo or Ultra Cameo surfaces. This piece shows profound white-on-black contrast on each side. This contrast is even more apparent because of the total lack of color. The only mentionable flaw is Mintmade, a vertical planchet lamination from the birds beak down to the top of the left wing. (#96418)

3441 1886 PR64 Cameo PCGs. A splendid Choice Cameo proof, the obverse exhibits champagne toning with deeper peripheral iridescence. The reverse is mostly brilliant with a few splashes of gold toning. Nice contrast appears between the fields and devices. (#86447)

Gem 1892-o Barber Half Dollar Popular First year of Design

3443 1892-o Ms65 PCGs. The 1892-O half dollar claims a lowmintage of 390,000 pieces and the issue enjoys some popularity with mintmark type collectors as the first date of the Barber design. This delightful Gem displays vibrant mint luster and well-detailed design elements, with a touch of softness on the eagles claw. Population: 13 in 65, 5 finer (1/12). (#6462) 3437 1865 PR66 Cameo PCGs. CaC. The financial pressures of the Civil War resulted in a number of arduous and expensive restrictions on the Mints commercial proof set offerings. Only 500 proof Seated Liberty half dollars were struck in 1865, and examples in Premium Gem condition, with the Cameo designation, are extremely rare. This delightful coin displays spectacular peripheral toning in shades of pale green, golden-tan, and cerulean-blue. The design elements are sharply detailed and richly frosted, providing dramatic cameo contrast with the mirrored fields. No mentionable distractions are apparent, even on close inspection, and visual appeal is extraordinary. Population: 4 in 66 Cameo, 1 finer (1/12). (#86419)

3444 1893-o Ms63 PCGs. Both sides of this scarce Barber half dollar exhibit satiny silver luster with traces of ivory toning and a splash of blue at the upper right obverse. The reverse is a few shades darker than the obverse. Population: 34 in 63, 44 finer (1/12). (#6466) 3445 1897-o aU50 nGC. For the many collectors of this difficult series in AU, here is a splendid example with just a slight bit of friction. Bright overall with just a touch of golden at the margins. Good remaining luster around the devices and minimally marked. (#6478) 3446 1903-s aU58 PCGs. CaC. Considerable luster remains on each side of this near-Mint specimen, with light gray-gold toning over its pleasing silver surfaces. A trace of wear prevents a full Mint State grade.(#6497)

3450 1897 PR68 Ultra Cameo nGC. The reverse exhibits spectacular contrast between the ice-white devices and the darkly mirrored field. The obverse contrast is nearly as remarkable, although the borders show light milky-gray toning. The strike is complete on the often-soft fletchings and claws, and even the right shield corner has pleasing definition. Pristine aside from a brief thin mark beneath obverse star 7, which will identify future appearances of this impressive proof Barber type coin, among the finest survivors from an issue of 731 pieces. Census: 12 in 68 Ultra Cameo, 1 finer (2/12). (#96544)

3451 1900 PR65 Cameo PCGs. Mint records indicate 912 proof Barber half dollars were struck in 1900, but few survivors can match the present coin for eye appeal and cameo contrast. The design elements display razor-sharp definition in most areas, with just a touch of softness on the upper right shield point. The fields are deeply mirrored, with highlights of champagne-gold toning. Population: 13 in 65 Cameo, 15 finer (1/12). (#86547)

3452 1900 PR66+ Cameo PCGs. CaC.

Both sides of this borderline Deep Cameo specimen have pristine, nearly flawless surfaces with deeply mirrored fields and highly lustrous devices. There is no toning visible on either side. Population: 3 in 66+ Cameo, 5 finer (1/12). (#86547)

The reverse is fully patinated in deeply blended forest-green and autumn-gold. The surfaces appear pristine beneath the rich blanket of colors. A scant 675 proofs were produced. (#6553)

The design elements are sharply detailed and the fields are brightly mirrored. From a mintage of 650 pieces. Population: 15 in 66 Cameo, 8 finer (1/12). (#86556) 3457 1910 PR63 PCGs. CaC. Delicate champagne toning appears on both sides of this lovely Select proof Barber half dollar. The 1910 is scarce in Mint State grades, and collectors often seek proof examples as more affordable representatives.(#6557) 3458 1915 PR64 PCGs. CaC. Many collectors seek proof examples of the 1913, 1914, and 1915 Barber half dollars, due to the rarity of higher grade Mint State pieces. This example has fully mirrored fields and satin devices with slight contrast. A few splashes of peripheral gold toning are visible on each side. Population: 46 in 64, 31 finer (1/12).(#6562)

Peach-gold and stone-gray alternate across this coruscating and boldly struck Walking Liberty half.

lively near-Gem 1918-s Half Dollar

select 1919-s Walking liberty Half Prime strike and Condition Rarity

3462 1918-s Ms64 nGC. CaC. Close to 10.3 million half dollars were struck at San Francisco in 1918, the last sizable issue from that Mint before the post-World War I economic slowdown. Examples are available for a price through MS64, though Gems are condition rarities. This near-Gem is attractive with gold, violet, and blue patina over much of each side, deeper on the reverse. Softly struck but with vibrant luster that is subtly frosted. (#6576)

3465 1919-s Ms63 PCGs. The 1919-S Walking Liberty half dollar is a rare date in high grade, and the issue is known for striking problems as well. This attractive Select specimen shows the usual softness on the central obverse and on the eagles leg, but the overall strike is much better-than-average. Bright mint luster shines through wisps of gold and ice-blue toning. (#6579)

1919-D Half Dollar, aU55 Walking liberty Key

1920-s Walker, Ms64 above average strike

3463 1919-D aU55 PCGs. When key-date Walkers are discussed, most collectors think of the three 1921 issues, but the 1919-D is the issue that should come to mind. This pleasing AU specimen exhibits minor scuffs in the right obverse field, but features a far finer than usual strike for the issue, with nearly full silver luster and light gold toning. (#6578)

3466 1920-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This satin near-Gem has bold design details that are much sharper than usual, with brilliant silver surfaces and gorgeous golden accents. Subtle blue toning enhances the overall visual appeal of this impressive specimen. PCGS has certified just 51 finer examples (1/12). (#6582) 3467 1921 VF35 PCGs. The 1921 Walking Liberty half dollar is a lowmintage date and a key issue in the series. This Choice VF example shows moderate wear on the devices with pleasing highlights of bluish-gray and champagne-gold toning.(#6583) 3468 1921 XF45 nGC. The lightly worn surfaces of this attractive Walking Liberty half dollar are blanketed in pleasing shades of champagne-gold and ice-blue toning. Vibrant mint luster adds to the considerable eye appeal.(#6583) 3469 1921-s VF35 PCGs. A completely original pewter-gray specimen with deep steel toning in the protected areas around the devices. Traces of yellowish-gold appear on the reverse. An important issue in the series, usually found in grades below Fine.(#6585)

3464 1919-D Ms62 nGC. Shades of attractive emerald-green and lavender-gray toning visit the pleasing surfaces of this MS62 Walking Liberty half dollar. The devices show the typical soft detail associated with this issue, which is almost never seen with a sharp strike. The 1919-D is an important key, from a low-mintage of less than 1.2 million pieces. (#6578)

1921-s Walking liberty Half, Ms63 important low-Mintage Key

lustrous Gem 1923-s Half Dollar

3470 1921-s Ms63 PCGs. CaC. The 1921-S Walking Liberty half dollar claims a low mintage of 548,000 pieces, and the issue is one of the most important keys to the series. Although the Philadelphia and Denver issues of this important date had even lower mintages than the 1921-S, neither coin is as rare in todays market, especially in high-grade condition. The present coin is an impressive Select specimen with satiny mint luster and pleasing gold and ice-blue patina. The strike is much better-than-average for this issue, with clear separation between Libertys thumb and fingers, although the usually seen softness is apparent on Libertys head and the eagles leg. Population: 33 in 63, 63 finer (1/12). (#6585)

3471 1923-s Ms65 PCGs. None of the three Mints struck half dollars in 1922, and in 1923, only San Francisco produced the denomination. Those coins, under 2.2 million in total, would be the only non-commemorative halves struck until 1927, when San Francisco reprised the denomination. The 1923-S issue is a transition-point for the series as a whole, after which it moves away from the pattern of Mint State rarity, save at the Premium or Superb Gem levels. This is a charming (and conditionally rare) Gem, bright silver in luster with occasional peripheral patches of cream. Prominent die polish lines appear in the space to the left of the eagles beak. Population: 40 in 65, 7 finer (1/12). (#6586)

(#6589) 3476 1933-s Ms63 nGC. This attractive 1933-S Walking Liberty half dollar exhibits sharply detailed design elements, with good separation between Libertys thumb and fingers. The lightly marked surfaces are lustrous and show wisps of golden-tan color. (#6591)

Premium Gem 1933-s Half Dollar only seven Coins in Higher Grades at PCGs

3477 1933-s Ms66 PCGs. This spectacular Premium Gem Walking Liberty Half dollar is sharply detailed in most areas, with definite separation between Libertys thumb and fingers. Just a touch of softness shows on the eagles leg, however. The surfaces are brightly lustrous and display attractive shades of light gold toning. Population: 81 in 66, 7 finer (1/12). (#6591) 3478 1934 Ms67+ PCGs. CaC. Lovely butter-gold and olive-gray toning enriches this lustrous and exceptionally preserved Superb Gem. The strike is decidedly above average, and post-strike contact is absent aside from a faint thin line on the rock beneath the right (facing) claw. Population: 2 in 67+, 8 finer (1/12). (#6592)

3472 1923-s Ms66 PCGs. CaC. Ex: The Dakota Collection. The 1923-S is a transitional issue in terms of Walking Liberty half dollar collecting; not so rare as the famously challenging 1921 dates, it is more elusive than the issues after the denomination resumed in 1927. Despite a mintage in the multi-millions, the 1923-S is a challenging date in the better Mint State grades, blossoming as a condition rarity at the MS66 level, where this coin lands. The strongly lustrous obverse has light gold and blue overtones that intensify on the reverse, particularly at the top and left. Population: 6 in 66, 1 finer (1/12). (#6586) 3473 1927-s Ms62 PCGs. Speckled gold, gray, and amber toning enhances the surfaces of this well-detailed Walking Liberty half dollar. Vibrant mint luster is evident on both sides and a scattering of minor contact marks explains the grade.(#6587)

1934-s Half Dollar, Ms66 attractive Peripheral Toning

Choice 1927-s Half Dollar Very scarce Date in Higher Grades

3479 1934-s Ms66 PCGs. CaC. The pearl-gray centers are encompassed by attractive caramel-gold and aquamarine margins. This lustrous Great Depression half dollar is fully struck except for slight blending on the fingers of the branch hand. Well preserved despite minor marks on the wings and right obverse field. Population: 87 in 66, 9 finer (1/12). (#6594)

3474 1927-s Ms64 nGC. The 1927-S Walking Liberty half dollar is one of the most poorly struck issues of the series, and this attractive Choice example shows the typical softness on the central obverse and the eagles leg. The peripheral elements are sharply impressed, and the pleasing surfaces are enlivened by shades of green, amber, and ice-blue toning. (#6587)

3480 1935 Ms67 nGC. Despite a mintage of more than 9 million pieces, the 1935 half dollar is a condition rarity at the MS67 level. This NGC-certified Superb Gem has frosty luster and a charming overlay of yellow and pink patina that stretches from canary to bubblegum hues. A soft central strike is one of the few concerns, and even this is typical for the date. (#6595)

3486 1938-D Ms66 PCGs. CaC. As almost always seen on Walking Liberty coins from this era, Libertys hand shows only a bit of emerging detail and the eagles leg shows the typical softness, as well. Booming mint luster is present on both sides, with a few wisps of champagne-gold toning. Eye appeal is terrific. (#6605) 3487 1939 Ms67+ PCGs. CaC. Iridescent jade-green and canary-gold toning blankets this thoroughly lustrous and fully struck Superb Gem. An outstanding representative without any visible marks. Population: 6 in 67+, 23 finer (1/12).(#6606) 3488 1939 Ms67+ PCGs. CaC. Autumn-gold and sea-green shades compete for territory across this lustrous and intricately struck Superb Gem.

Frosty and highly lustrous silver surfaces appear on this sharply detailed Superb Gem. Slight central weakness is typical but the strike is stronger than usual for the issue. Delicate gold toning heightens the eye appeal. This piece is tied for the finest certified at PCGS and NGC (1/12). (#6608) 3491 1941-s Ms66 PCGs.

The PCGS number ending in .97 suggests Environmental Damage as the reason, or one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of a Fine specimen with environmental damage. The 1797 Draped Bust dollar claims a small mintage of 7,776 pieces and the B-2 variety was once considered a great rarity. A small number of additional specimens surfaced over the years, expanding the supply to the extent of 200 or more examples in all grades. Despite the noted damage (a few small spots of corrosion on both sides) this coin remains an attractive specimen of this scarce issue. (#6866)

Identifiable as a later December striking by the angling, straight die clash mark (created by one of the lines in Libertys gown). Just above and in line with this clash mark is an L-shaped scratch that has nothing to do with the clash mark, but is in the same neighborhood on the coin and needs to be mentioned to avoid confusion.

3545 1850-o Ms62 nGC. A sensational example of the elusive 1850O Seated dollar, one of just four Seated dollar issues coined at the New Orleans Mint. While the 1859-O and 1860-O issues are commonly seen in all grades, including Mint State, the issues of 1846-O and 1850-O are seldom seen in Mint State grades. This golden-brown toned specimen is fully lustrous and nicely detailed, the obverse accented with lilac, rose, blue, and olive-green color. While the surfaces have a few grade consistent abrasions, there are no significant defects. Census: 4 in 62, 4 finer (2/12). (#6938) 3546 1860-o aU58 PCGs. A straw-gold slider of the popular No Motto Seated dollar type. Well struck and, unlike many 1859-O or 1860-O examples, there are no detracting bagmarks. One bright hairline noted on the right obverse field. Housed in an old green label holder.(#6950) 3547 1860-o Ms61 PCGs. An attractive Mint State example of this popular 19th century type coin, with vibrant mint luster and wispy light gold toning. A scattering of minor contact marks on both sides explains the grade.(#6950)

3549 1866 Motto Ms64 PCGs. CaC. At first glance, this first-year With Motto Seated dollar could be mistaken for a proof, for it has great field-to-device contrast and readily apparent flashiness to the fields. Closer inspection, however, reveals that the mirror effect is not deep, particularly between the stripes of the shield, and the strike at upper obverse and lower reverse is far softer than that seen on proofs of the time. As a Mint State coin, of course, this nearGem is a marvel, richly toned with blue-to-violet outer patina and peach-to-gold interiors with a more silvery influence on the wellfrosted devices. Population: 15 in 64, 8 finer (1/12). (#6959) 3550 1871 aU58 PCGs. This attractive near-Mint Seated dollar has a trace of wear on the design high points, with nearly full frosty mint luster.

incredible 1852 Restrike Dollar Border-Toned PR64

3551 1852 Restrike PR64 nGC. Only one obverse die was

apparently made, and it was used for business strikes in addition to all proofs, whether original or restrike. According to Q. David Bowers (1993), a number of different reverse dies were used to strike proofs. Diagnostics are given for several of those dies, but few of those diagnostics are clear-cut. Duncan Lee, in the August 2006 supplement to the Coin Dealer Newsletter, makes an understatement. There exists some confusion regarding the status of originals and restrikes, and much more research in this area is required. However, most reverse[s] seen have been from the same dies as the proof 1859 specimen. Lee gives no diagnostics for the proof 1859 reverse, and the cataloger again turns to Bowers useful silver dollar Encyclopedia. He lists two proof dies for 1859, one as no description on hand and the other as reverse 2 of 1858. Bowers proof reverse 2 for 1858 includes a diagnostic that matches the present example. There is a light inner circle on the denticles above the NI in UNITED. A faint die line passes downward through several vertical stripes within the eagles shield, which matches a diagnostic given for Bowers 1852 proof variety 3. If the reverse die is the same as that used to strike 1859 proofs, then the present piece is probably a restrike, as stated by the NGC insert. But as Bowers wrote in 1993, more than for any other date in the Liberty Seated series dated in the 1850s, research [of proof restrikes] needs to be done on the 1852. Most collectors of proof Seated dollars choose to collect one of each date, and are uninterested in gathering duplicates from a different reverse die. Collectors instead seek a single, high quality specimen. This lovely near-Gem will satisfy any numismatist, since it lacks abrasions and features original and attractive peripheral forest-green, rose-red, and autumn-gold toning. Mild cameo contrast is evident, and imperfections are limited to the strike, which is slightly soft on the stars and the eagles left (facing) ankle.

1854 Ultra Cameo PR64 seated Dollar Ex: allenburger/Pittman

Gem Proof 1862 seated Dollar spectacularly Toned Civil War Era specimen

3552 1854 PR64 Ultra Cameo nGC. The 1854 proof Seated Liberty dollar was produced in small numbers, with an estimated mintage of 50-100 pieces. The dollars were sold as part of complete proof sets and as single pieces to interested collectors. Walter Breen estimated the surviving population at two dozen examples in all grades. This is the only proof Cameo or Ultra Cameo coin certified at NGC (2/12). PCGS has yet to certify any specimens as Deep Cameo. All proof 1854 dollars show a small triangular defect in the obverse field, near the top of the 5 in the date. Another interesting feature that appears on this coin, and many others, is a patch of mint frost beneath Libertys chin that gives the goddess a bearded appearance. The present coin traces its provenance to the famous Pittman Collection, one of the finest numismatic gatherings of all time. John Jay Pittman was a connoisseur of the first order, and his eye for quality led to many long-held fortuitous purchases. This delightful Choice example is sharply detailed in most areas, but shows the characteristic softness on the eagles wing. The fields are deeply mirrored, and display hints of attractive light gold toning. The best pedigree markers are a diagonal mark extending into the left (facing) eagles wing from the reverse field and a pair of lint marks between stars 2 and 3. This coin possesses high technical quality and tremendous eye appeal, along with its distinguished history. Ex: Royal Sale/Allenburger Collection (B. Max Mehl, 3/1948), lot 1130; John Jay Pittman Collection (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1686, realized $19,800. (#96997)

3553 1862 PR65 nGC. The economic uncertainty occasioned by the advent of the Civil War caused widespread hoarding of all U.S. coinage and general mistrust of paper money. One result of these unwelcome financial conditions was a new series of restrictions on the method of ordering and payment for proof coins. Only specie payment was accepted, requiring collectors to buy gold or silver coins from bullion dealers at a steep premium, in order to exchange them at the Mint for proof examples. The old minor charges for proof production and postage remained in effect as well. As a result, few collectors ordered proof sets during this era, and specimens are seldom encountered today. The present coin is a delightful Gem, with razor-sharp definition on all design elements. The deeply reflective surfaces are blanketed in iridescent shades of golden-brown, green, and cerulean-blue toning. This coin possesses tremendous eye appeal. Census: 13 in 65, 9 finer (2/12).

From a minuscule proof mintage of 500 pieces, this delightful Seated Liberty dollar is one of the few survivors to display profound Cameo contrast between the richly frosted devices and the deeply mirrored fields. Only a scattering of minor contact marks in the reverse field prevents an even higher grade. Population: 2 in 63 Deep Cameo, 4 finer (1/12). (#97008)

3556 1867 PR65 PCGs. According to Mint records, only 625 proof Seated Liberty dollars were struck in 1867. Four different die combinations are known for the date, surprising for such a small mintage. This coin represents the most available second die marriage listed in the Bowers-Borckardt silver dollar reference, with small border dentils between 12 and 2 oclock on the obverse. High-grade business-strike examples are very elusive, putting extra pressure on the small proof mintage. The coin offered here is a delightful Gem, with sharply rendered design elements and brightly mirrored fields. The pleasing surfaces are enhanced by attractive shades of golden-brown and electricblue patina. Population: 17 in 65, 1 finer (1/12). (#7015)

Richly Toned PR66 1870 seated Dollar

3557 1867 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGs. The Seated dollar did not last long after the switch to the Motto reverse, starting up in 1866 and folding in 1873. With just a handful of issues available, type collectors usually gravitate toward attractive examples rather than specific issues, which is an advantage for this PR64 Deep Cameo specimen from the second-year issue, just 625 proofs strong. Bluegreen patina around much of the borders acts as a frame for the coins stunning black-and-white interior contrast. Thickly frosted devices are boldly detailed, and though wispy hairlines are visible in the fields, the overall eye appeal is amazing. Population: 6 in 64 Deep Cameo, 1 finer (1/12). (#97015) 3558 1869 PR50 PCGs. This lightly worn proof has moderately mirrored fields beneath pale lavender-gray and iridescent toning. Scattered surface marks are expected.(#7017)

3559 1870 PR66 nGC. Though a nominal mintage of 1,000 pieces was made for the proof 1870 Seated dollar issue, the date is a condition rarity in better-than-Gem grades. Both sides of this Premium Gem specimen have loosely concentric patina, green-gold, blue, and violet on the obverse with an additional orange element on the inner reverse. Though contrast of the traditional black-and-white variety is missing, there is a distinct shift in texture between the mirrored smoothness of the fields and the frosted texture of the devices; this is most apparent at the shield, where frosted lines frame gleaming slivers. (#7018)

near-Gem Proof 1873 seated Dollar

3560 1873 PR64 PCGs. Ice-white devices and legends suggest a Cameo designation is in order, but the age of the first-generation holder precludes any such insert notation.

3561 1873 PR65 Cameo nGC. The 1873 Liberty Seated dollar represents the last of its kind, as the heavier-weight Trade dollar, not intended for domestic U.S. circulation, would supersede the design in this year. A nominal 291,600 business strikes were produced of the Liberty Seated dollar, although with a small but usual complement of proof dollars, 600 in this case. The present piece is a nicely reflective Gem Cameo, made such more by the deep frosting on the devices than because of the mirroring in the fields. The centers are lilac with noticeably deeper toning at the margins, tending toward deep blue. The strike is full throughout both sides. The only obvious flaw is a Mint-made one, a diagonal line from below the D in DOLLAR up to the eagle. Census: 4 in 65 Cameo, 1 in 65 Cameo, 3 finer (2/12). (#87021)

Magnificent Ms66 1875-s Trade Dollar Type one Reverse

1875-s/CC Trade Dollar, aU58 Mysterious Chop Mark

3568 1875-s/CC Chop Mark aU58 PCGs. If there is a chop mark on this coin, we dont see it. What we do see are several planchet voids, the most obvious on the right (facing) breast of Liberty and secondarily on the right (facing) arm. These do not appear to be a Chinese character, though. Much luster remains around the devices on each side, and the coin is generally untoned. The devices are sharply struck and the CC is plainly evident beneath the S. Very scarce in Uncirculated, this piece represents excellent value. Population: 4 in 58, 7 finer (1/12). (#87040) 3569 1876 Ms63 anaCs. Type One Obverse, Type Two Reverse. Deeply toned peach, blue-green, and violet with an interior window of silver on the reverse. Well-defined with just a few light abrasions to make the Select grade fitting.(#7041) 3570 1876-s Ms61 nGC. Type One Obverse and Reverse. Large S. This pleasing Mint State example is sharply defined with hints of champagne toning over its satiny silver surfaces. Myriad surface marks are only visible with a glass.(#7043) 3571 1877 Ms63 nGC. Libertys head and the upper stars are mostly flat, a characteristic typical of more than 90% of all 1877 Philadelphia Trade dollars. This Select Mint State specimen has reflective, prooflike fields, beneath gold and iridescent toning. (#7044) 3572 1877-CC Rim Filing, Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. A sharply defined example, this CC Trade dollar retains full luster with light hairlines and other minor marks. The rim filing is evident on both sides, but not obvious on either side.

3567 1875-s Ms66 nGC. Type One Reverse. Large S. The 1875-S has the highest mintage in the Trade dollar series, and it is the most available issue in Uncirculated grades. That being said, of the 4.4 million pieces struck the vast majority were either distributed on the West Coast and circulated, or sent to the Orient (this is predictably the most common chopmarked Trade dollar). Today several dozen Gems are known, but above that level there are extraordinarily few examples that qualify for higher grades. In the case of MS66 coins, NGC has only certified six coins with none finer, and PCGS has certified eight pieces in this grade with only three finer (1/12). An uncommonly high grade for the type. The surfaces are highly lustrous and display only wispy field abrasions. Both obverse and reverse display subtle iridescence, a sign of originality, and there is slight deepening of the color at the margins. The strike is the only weakness on this piece. The peripheral stars and head of Liberty are softly detailed, but in the overall scheme of things this is a minor consideration. (#7039)

Choice 1877-s Trade Dollar Most shipped to China

3573 1877-s Ms64 PCGs. The 1877-S Trade dollar claims a series-high mintage of 9.5 million pieces, but most were shipped to China, and Choice examples are quite scarce today. This impressive specimen displays well-detailed design elements, with vibrant mint luster, and wispy light gold toning. PCGS has graded only 33 coins in higher numeric grades. (1/12). (#7046)

Choice XF 1878-CC Trade Dollar notable Melt Rarity

1879 Trade Dollar, PR62 Cameo important Proof-only issue

3574 1878-CC XF45 PCGs. The infamous melt rarity among Trade dollars, as a substantial minority of 1878-CC coins were destroyed at the Carson City Mint before reaching commerce. This lightly worn Choice XF coin remains faintly luminous under lavender and blue patina with a deep gray base. Lightly abraded overall with an angled pinscratch under the stem of Libertys branch. Population: 18 in 45, 64 finer (1/12). (#7047)

3578 1879 PR62 Cameo PCGs. No business-strike Trade dollars were produced at any of the U.S. Mints in 1879, but the Philadelphia facility coined a generous proof mintage of 1,541 pieces. This sharply detailed example displays brightly mirrored fields, with a startling black-on-white cameo flash when the coin is tilted in the light. A few hints of light gold toning grace the lightly hairlined surfaces. Population: 11 in 62 Cameo, 88 finer (1/12). (#87059)

PRooF TRaDE DollaRs


3575 1875 PR62 Cameo PCGs. Type Two Reverse. This brilliant specimen has frosty devices and nicely mirrored fields. The strike is intricate, and only delicate hairlines are evident. A scarce proof date.(#87055)

A high grade Gem of this scarce proof issue. UNITED is lightly die doubled. Population: 1 in 65+ Cameo, 2 finer (1/12). (#87055)

3579 1880 PR64 nGC. The highest-mintage proof Trade dollar was the 1880, which saw production of 1,987 specimens. Though this issue has a mintage more suited to late 19th century copper than late 19th century silver, it is still elusive and desirable in near-Gem condition, which this richly toned example offers. The mirrors are carefully preserved beneath waves of peach, gold, blue-green, and violet patina. (#7060)

Choice Proof-only 1881 Trade Dollar

lushly Toned Gem Proof 1879 Trade Dollar

3577 1879 PR65 nGC. The only Trade dollars struck in 1879 were proofs from Philadelphia, the first of a string of proof-only dates. This Gem specimen from the beginning of the run has flashy reflectivity mostly in the margins, where the rich patina blue, violet, and peach with a partial dappled effect on the obverse is at its thinnest. Census: 45 in 65, 37 finer (2/12). (#7059)

3580 1881 PR64 PCGs. Lovely navy-blue, plum-red, and pumpkingold toning dominates this well struck and deeply mirrored Choice Trade dollar. No hairlines are readily evident. The reverse is minutely die doubled, perhaps most clearly on 420 GRAINS. A meager 960 pieces were struck for this proof-only date. (#7061)

Harper, Jr. Collection. (#7063)

3592 1878-s Ms65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGs. This first-year San Francisco Morgan dollar is moderately frosted on sharply struck devices with deep mirrors around.

The modified reverse with just seven tailfeathers is sometimes called the Second Reverse or the Reverse of 1878. This piece has reflective fields with satin luster and lovely peripheral gold toning.

Trivial marks prevent an even higher grade.(#7080) 3591 1878-CC Ms65 PCGs. CaC. The Morgan design was introduced in 1878, making this issue an extremely important one for mintmark type collectors.

3593 1879-CC obverse Damage nGC Details. Unc. The 1879CC silver dollar is prized by collectors of the series. Among Carson City Morgans, only the key 1889-CC is more elusive. This lustrous, well-struck specimen remains attractive, despite a series of small indentations near Libertys nose. A few hints of champagne-gold toning accent the surfaces of both sides. (#7086)

This quirky, partially effaced repunched mintmark has had a varying reception over the years, though now it is treated as an honored variety among Morgan dollars. This Mint State example shows a number of fine abrasions on Libertys portrait, but the reverse is better-preserved under delicate mauve-silver and yellowgreen patina. (#7088)

3606 1880-CC Ms66 PCGs. A sensational Premium Gem, this example has a short bar under the second 8, a feature seen on the majority of the 591,000 silver dollars minted in 1880.

The reverse is only minimally abraded, and distributed grazes on the left obverse account for the designated grade. (#7088) 3597 1879-s Reverse of 1878 Ms64 PCGs. Scattered surface marks on each side are entirely inconsequential, yet prevent a higher grade. This lovely near-Gem is fully brilliant with frosty silver luster and untoned surfaces.(#7094) 3598 1879-s Reverse of 1878 Ms64 PCGs.

Vibrant VaM-2 1887/6 Dollar, Ms66

1886-o silver Dollar, Ms63 seldom Encountered in High Grade

3647 1886-o Ms63 PCGs. The 1886-O Morgan dollar was produced in large numbers, but most of the mintage was released into circulation at the time of issue or melted under the provisions of the Pitman Act. High-grade examples are elusive, and attractive Select specimens are prized by present-day collectors. The present coin displays well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster, with a scattering of minor, grade-consistent contact marks. (#7168)

Conditionally Rare 1886-o Dollar, Ms63

3648 1886-o Ms63 PCGs. Light chestnut-gold toning visits this lustrous and sharply struck example. The left obverse displays minor marks but the overall appearance is pleasing.

shining near-Gem 1893-CC Morgan Dollar Key Date, Condition Rarity any Finer

3703 1893-o Ms63+ PCGs. CaC. Though the 1893-S dollar attracts more attention, the 1893-O is a challenging date in its own right, particularly in better Mint State grades. This minimally toned example is mainly silver-white with just a glimpse of gold. Though lightly abraded, it comes remarkably close to near-Gem quality. Population: 2 in 63+, 90 finer (1/12). (#7224) 3704 1893-s Damaged nGC Details. Fair. LIBERTY, the date, and the mintmark are clear. The rim has worn into the tops of some peripheral letters.

Broadly lustrous Gem 1896-s Dollar Minimally Toned obverse

3733 1896-s Ms65+ PCGs. CaC. A crucial rule for numismatic newcomers to learn is that mintages do not tell the whole story of rarity, particularly condition rarity. It is easy for a novice to imagine that the 1893-S Morgan dollar is a rarity, for example, because its mintage is so low relative to its peers, but grasping how the 1896S, with its mintage of 5 million pieces, can be conditionally rare requires additional sophistication. This MS65+ example is a step above a typical Gem, attractively lustrous with a modest but clearly visible cartwheel effect. Medium-silver surfaces show glimpses of gold-to-peach patina along the margins. The centers are softly struck, as often seen for the date, and roller marks are visible where the high points of the design did not strike out. Population: 3 in 65+, 3 finer (1/12). (#7244)

3732 1896-s Ms65 PCGs. Pale silver is the dominant color of this Gem 1896-S dollar, and the faint hint of peach color on that side coalesces into a delicate patch at the left reverse. The hair over Libertys ear is softly struck, a typical state, but the broadly swirling cartwheel luster over each side holds special appeal. On the reverse, die cracks lace together most of the peripheral letters and the wingtips. Despite a mintage of 5 million pieces, the 1896-S is a borderline condition rarity at the Gem level and unquestionably so any finer. Population: 52 in 65, 3 finer (1/12). (#7244)

1901-o Gem Deep Mirror Prooflike Dollar scarce late-Date Dollar With This Finish

Population: 24 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 2 finer (1/12). (#97247) 3735 1897-o Ms62 nGC.

3740 1901-o Ms65 Deep Mirror Prooflike nGC. The 1901-O is common, even in high grades, but it is exceptionally difficult to locate with a Deep Mirror Prooflike finish. The fields are exceptionally deep and comparable to pre-1901 dollars in their reflectivity. The devices are mildly frosted, certainly enough to warrant the DMPL designation. Each side is brilliant with a ring of deep russet around the margins. Sharply struck and minimally abraded, as one would expect. Census: 22 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 1 finer (2/12). (#97275) 3741 1902 Ms66+ PCGs. CaC. Peach-gold, aquamarine, and plummauve toning is confined to the margins of this lustrous and sharply struck high grade silver dollar. Trivial surface imperfections fail to affect the exceptional eye appeal. Population: 5 in 66+, 21 finer (1/12).(#7278) 3742 1902-s Ms65 nGC. The 1902-S Morgan dollar is seldom encountered with the well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster displayed by this attractive Gem. NGC has graded just nine coins finer (2/12).(#7282) 3743 1902-s Ms65 PCGs. A lovely Gem with brilliant silver luster and a sliver of iridescence at the right reverse border. The 1902-S is relatively plentiful in Gem but rare finer, with only 35 higher grade coins certified at PCGS.(#7282)

Premium Gem 1900-o/CC Dollar late-state VaM-8B Dies

superb Gem 1903 Morgan Dollar among the Finest Certified at PCGs

3738 1900-o/CC Ms66 PCGs. CaC. VaM-8B. A Top 100 Variety. This late state of the VAM-8 die pair has clash marks before Libertys face as well as the rust spots in the mintmark area. This is a marvelous example of the last Carson City Morgan dollar issue, decently detailed and warmly lustrous with a minimally toned reverse but green-to-gold toning across much of the obverse. (#7268) 3739 1900-s Ms65 nGC. CaC. Sharply detailed and attractively toned in shades of gold and violet, this delightful Gem displays areas of prooflike reflectivity amongst the satiny luster.(#7270)

3744 1903 Ms67 PCGs. A lustrous and boldly struck Superb Gem that has peripheral wisps of golden-brown color. The fields and cheek are beautifully preserved, and only a well concealed contact mark on the eagles breast prevents this imposing example from challenging a higher grade. Population: 66 in 67, 0 finer (1/12). (#7284)

Choice 1903-s Morgan Dollar Elusive issue in High Grade

PRooF MoRGan DollaRs


3750 1881 PR62 Cameo PCGs. CaC. Faint hairlines are visible on each side of this pleasing Cameo proof. The surfaces have only the slightest trace of champagne toning with deeply mirrored fields and satiny devices.(#87316) 3751 1882 PR62 nGC. A mostly brilliant proof with good reflectivity in the fields in spite of the obvious hairlines that account for the grade. Intricately defined throughout. Purchased from Abner Kreisberg Corporation on January 20, 1981 for $2,500.(#7317)

select Proof 1882 Morgan Dollar Richly Frosted Devices


3745 1903-s Ms64 nGC. The 1903-S Morgan dollar is an elusive date in high grade and examples in Choice condition are quite scarce in todays market. This well-detailed Choice example is brightly lustrous, with well-preserved surfaces that show attractive accents of gold toning. Census: 96 in 64, 50 finer (2/12). (#7288) 3746 1904-s Ms61 nGC. This satiny Mint State S-Mint Morgan dollar has brilliant silver luster with a hint of pale gold toning. Scattered surface marks are entirely trivial.(#7294)

1904-s Morgan Dollar, Ms63 Decent strike, Vibrant luster

3752 1882 PR63 PCGs. The 1882 proof Morgan silver dollar boasts a generous mintage of 1,100 pieces. This impressive Select example displays sharply detailed design elements, with a rich coating of mint frost, and lightly toned fields that exhibit hazy reflectivity. A few minor hairlines and contact marks are consistent with the grade. (#7317) 3753 1884 PR60 PCGs. Soft charcoal-gray toning is visible on both sides, with wispy hairlines in the fields and a handful of sizeable milling marks on Libertys jaw.(#7319)

3747 1904-s Ms63 PCGs. The rule for 1904-S Morgan dollars is: Weak strikes and insipid mint luster. This attractive Select example is a welcome exception, with vibrant mint luster and sharply detailed devices. The surfaces are lightly marked, with a few hints of gold and lavender toning. Eye appeal is outstanding for the grade. (#7294)

Choice Proof 1886 Morgan Dollar Electric Patina

luminous Gem 1904-s Morgan Dollar

3754 1886 PR64 PCGs. An impressive Choice proof with deep obverse patina and lighter reverse toning. The obverse has a blend of blue, brown, and iridescent hues, while the reverse is lighter gold with the iridescence as a substantial overtone. One of 886 proofs coined for this issue, and clearly among the most beautiful. Population: 41 in 64, 35 finer (1/12). (#7321) 3748 1904-s Ms65 PCGs. A luminous Gem representative from the end of the initial Morgan dollar run, lightly dusted with green-gold patina. Well-preserved devices are decently if not sharply struck, and the all-around eye appeal is solid. The original mintage of 2.3 million pieces was not saved in quantity, and so anything finer than this Gem is a condition rarity. PCGS has graded only 11 such coins (1/12). (#7294) 3749 1921 Ms66+ PCGs. CaC. With more than 60,000 pieces certified by PCGS alone, the 1921 Morgan dollar is one of the most common dates in the series. However, just four have been graded MS66+ and only seven are certified in finer grades (2/12). This impressive piece has a bold strike with frosty silver luster and pristine, untoned surfaces.(#7296) 3755 1890 PR50 nGC. A lightly circulated proof with considerable reflectivity, this light gray Morgan has delicate lavender toning along the obverse border with a hint of similar toning on the reverse.(#7325)

stunningly Toned 1893 Dollar, PR68 Ex: simpson

3756 1893 PR68 nGC. Yet another winning coin from the cabinet of megacollector Simpson, hypnotically toned in lush concentric bands. Blues, violets, pinks, and green-golds shift on each side, sometimes blending into each other and stopping in hard lines at other places. Underneath the toning is the magnificent flash of a well-mirrored coin, slightly stronger on the reverse, with the frostiness of the well-defined devices plain even through the patina. As demanded of a PR68 coin, the overall preservation is magnificent, but it takes time for the viewer to get away from the overall eye appeal and focus on such technical aspects. An important condition rarity. (#7328)

Gem Proof 1894 Dollar Elusive Date in Business-strike or Proof

3757 1894 PR65 nGC. Always a premium date as a proof because of the scarcity of high grade business strike 1894-P Dollars, Gem Proofs are especially sought after by collectors. The surfaces on this piece are essentially flawless and each side is covered with deep, variegated shades of gray, sea-green, blue, and golden toning. The fields are deeply mirrored. Census: 47 in 65, 74 finer (2/12). (#7329)

Moderately Toned Gem Proof 1895 Dollar

3758 1895 PR65 PCGs. The 1895 Morgan dollar holds a unique

status among all U.S. silver dollar issues, in that it is only the absence of any business strike examples of the issue that makes the presence of the proofs so desirable. Modern-day researchers have theorized and questioned whether the business strikes might have existed at one time, but the 1895 was nonetheless generally thought to be a rare and desirable proof-only issue within a few years after its production. Trying to estimate surviving populations of any given coin issue from the certified populations can be a tricky business, but it is a safe bet that no more than a few hundred examples survive from the original mintage of 880 proofs. (This is a stark comparison with the number of serious collectors/dealers of Morgan dollars who might conceivably want to buy an example, perhaps as many as 10,000-15,000 persons.) The numerically finest examples certified at PCGS are one each in PR68 Deep Cameo and PR68. At NGC, the highest-graded piece is a single PR69 Ultra Cameo, although that service has also seen 15 submissions at the PR68 grade level, including non-Cameo, Cameo, and Ultra Cameo examples. The 1895 proof Morgan is nonetheless valued by collectors at the other end of the grading spectrum, where NGC and PCGS have each seen several dozen circulated examples, or impaired proofs, worn down to the Good level at NGC (a single coin) and the Very Good level at PCGS (four pieces). The median grade for the proof 1895 dollar is around PR64, and examples in PR65 or finer grades are seldom-seen a truism that applies to most Morgan dollar proof issues, not solely the 1895. This Gem proof is thoroughly charming under a rich layer of silver-blue, lavender, and golden-white patina. Both sides once showed contrast, though this remains visible only as a partial cameo effect on the reverse. As a well-preserved survivor with attractive patina, the coin has a wide built-in audience, and it will take a strong bid to walk away the winner.

superb Gem Proof 1896 Morgan Dollar Dramatic Cameo surfaces, no Cameos Finer at PCGs

Exquisite 1899 Morgan Dollar superb Gem Cameo Proof

3759 1896 PR67 Cameo PCGs. Of the 27 proof Morgan dollar issues (1878 through 1904), only eight dates have a lower mintage than the 1896, of which 762 pieces were struck for collectors. Even the heralded 1895 proof Morgan dollar saw a higher production. The combined total of 1896 dated proofs graded at NGC and PCGS is 565 coins (1/12), which is indicative of a high survival rate for this issue. However, that total includes all proof dollars, regardless of the quality of manufacture and/or post-mint impairments. As specialists of this series know, many proofs were mishandled through poor storage choices and improper cleaning. The totals also include an unknown number of resubmissions and crossovers. The current coin resides in the upper echelon of all extant examples, as established by the current PCGS population of three in 67 Cameo with none finer (1/12). The PCGS Population Report has changed little in recent years for the 1896 proof Morgan dollar and it is unlikely that significant numbers of new Cameo examples will be graded at this lofty level or higher, although there are some outstanding examples certified outside the designation.. As expected, this proof is almost perfectly preserved. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices display heavy mint frost which gives the coin a stark cameo contrast on each side. Both obverse and reverse have an overlay of pale rose-gray patina. Exceptional quality. (#87331)

3760 1899 PR67 Cameo PCGs. CaC. If the proof Morgan dollars of the mid-1890s are the apex of production quality, then the best examples of a date such as the 1899 are not far behind. While the contrast on this Superb Gem specimen is not black-and-white, owing to gold-gray patina at the obverse margins and well into the fields on the reverse, the icy frost across boldly defined devices is marvelous. Carefully preserved surfaces seem close to perfect to the unaided eye, and inspection under magnification reveals just how close this is to the truth. A small hazy spot is noted under Libertys chin. Population: 3 in 67 Cameo, 1 finer (1/12). (#87334)

1903 Brilliant-Finish Dollar, PR64 light, scattered Toning

3761 1903 PR64 PCGs. Starting in 1902, the Philadelphia Mint used an all-brilliant finish on many proof coins, abandoning the frosty devices of earlier years. The present coin is a perfect example of this chrome effect, with brightly reflective surfaces throughout and areas of gold and brown toning. The devices are well-struck with just a hint of softness on the hair above the ear. Population: 67 in 64, 58 finer (1/12). (#7338)

3762 1921 Ms65 nGC. A sharp strike for a 1921 Peace dollar, with slight central weakness as always. This piece has frosty silver luster with peripheral gold toning. A tiny scuff is noted at the central reverse, preventing a higher grade.(#7356) 3763 1921 Ms65 PCGs. Rich and intriguing patina forms deep swirls of amber, golden-tan, and charcoal patina around a mostly mediumgray interior. The effect is less pronounced on the reverse, which also offers warmer luster.(#7356) 3764 1921 Ms65 nGC. Typical central weakness appears on the hair over the ear, and the junction of the eagles wing and leg, but all other design elements are sharp. The surfaces have satiny silver luster beneath light champagne toning.(#7356) 3765 1921 Ms65 PCGs. CaC. High Relief. Blessed with a remarkably strong strike on both obverse and reverse, this piece is fully untoned and there are only a couple of minor abrasions on either side. A pleasing, high-end example of this important one-year type coin. (#7356) 3766 1922-s Ms65 PCGs. The creamy smooth fields of this impressive Gem show only the most insignificant contact marks, with vibrant mint luster and well-detailed devices. PCGS has graded only six coins in higher numeric grades (1/12).(#7359) 3767 1922-s Ms65 nGC. Dramatically toned with saturated blue-gray interior patina and starkly contrasting green-gold and rose borders. Softly struck but a gorgeous Gem.(#7359) 3768 1922-s Ms65 PCGs. CaC.

Census: 9 in 66 , 78 finer (2/12). (#7363) 3772 1924-s Ms64 nGC. This well-detailed Choice specimen displays vibrant mint luster and subtle highlights of champagne-gold toning, with only minor signs of contact. The 1924-S Peace dollar is a challenging date in higher grades.(#7364) 3773 1925-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. This near-Gem is almost as good as it gets for a 1925-S Peace dollar, with satiny mint brilliance shining through delicate peripheral iridescence. A few tiny scuffs prevent a higher grade. Population: 33 in 64+, 36 finer (1/12). (#7366) 3774 1925-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. This high-end Choice specimen exhibits well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster, under speckled golden-brown and amber toning. Only a few insignificant contact marks are evident on both sides. Population: 33 in 64+, 36 finer (1/12).(#7366) 3775 1926 Ms66 nGC. A bold strike, satin luster, and brilliant silver surfaces characterize this Premium Gem, approaching the finest available for the 1926 Peace dollar issue. Census: 45 in 66, 1 finer (2/12).(#7367) 3776 1926-s Ms65 PCGs. CaC. A brilliant Gem, this S-Mint Peace dollar exhibits fully lustrous and frosty silver surfaces with above average design definition. A trace of gold toning appears on the obverse.(#7369) 3777 1927-s Ms64 PCGs. Speckled gold and iridescent toning appears on each side of this frosty near-Gem with full underlying silver luster. A sharply detailed and attractive Peace dollar. (#7372) 3778 1928 Ms64 PCGs. Both sides of this near-Gem key Peace dollar have trivial, grade-consistent marks. The surfaces are frosty and untoned with brilliant silver luster.(#7373) 3779 1928 Ms64 nGC. Vibrant mint luster and sharply detailed devices create extraordinary eye appeal for this attractive nearGem example. The 1928 Peace dollar is a low-mintage key date. (#7373) 3780 1928 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. A small chatter mark on the eagles neck may be the only reason that this lovely piece was graded less than Gem. Both sides are brilliant and sharply defined with frosty silver luster and are void of toning.(#7373) 3781 1928 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This pleasing Choice Mint State key Peace dollar is housed in a green-label PCGS holder. Both sides have frosty mint brilliance beneath light gold toning. (#7373)

1923 Peace Dollar, Exceptional Ms67 Frosted, near-Flawless surfaces

3769 1923 Ms67 nGC. Along with the 1922, the 1923 is one of the most frequently encountered Peace dollars. It is also among the best produced. That is readily apparent on this spectacular coin. Both sides are brilliant and heavily frosted with no obvious or mentionable flaws on either side. Seldom found in such superior condition. (#7360) 3770 1923-D Ms65 PCGs. CaC. The well-detailed design elements of this attractive Gem show just a touch of softness in Libertys tresses. The surfaces are lightly toned in shades of golden-tan, and the fields are free of mentionable contact marks.(#7361)

Ever-Popular 2000-P Cheerios Dollar Ms66+ with original Packaging

3783 1934-s Ms63 PCGs. CaC. Like the Morgan dollar before it, the Peace dollar had a second act years after initial production ceased. This 1934-S example comes from a first-year revival issue of just over a million pieces. Frosty surfaces have a suggestion of gold on pale silver-white surfaces. A dot of crimson toning appears just above the eagles talons, while on the obverse, a line of reed marks runs horizontally on Libertys cheek. (#7377) 3784 1935 Ms66 PCGs. Pale silver and deep violet are the most prominent hues, but both sides and especially the reverse show a great deal of iridescence in between. Great luster and a decent strike. Tied for the finest that PCGS has certified.(#7378) 3787 2000-P Cheerios Ms66+ PCGs. Fs-902. The General Mills Sacagawea dollar promotion put early examples of the coin in boxes of Cheerios cereal, coins that differed slightly in their reverse design from the coins later released to circulation. The Cheerios dollars are now prized modern varieties, often offered with their original packaging. Such is the case with this MS66+ PCGS example, pale and bright with just a couple of shallow digs in the right obverse field. For the variety, Population: 1 in 66+, 39 finer (1/12). (#147231)

The 1971-S silver Ike circulation strike (actually, they were originally marketed to collectors in the Mints famous blue packs) has several hundred submissions at PCGS in MS67, but at MS68 this piece is one of only two seen at that service (1/12). The satiny, untoned silver-white surfaces, as expected, are free of any of the distracting marks that usually appear on the presidents cheek and/or rather prominent pate. This is a coin that is a cinch to be an upgrade candidate for almost all of the finest Registry Sets at PCGS. (#7408)

Neither the 2002-P nor -D Sacs were issued for circulation, struck to the extent of about 3.8 million pieces each, far fewer than the 2001-PD issues. (#15002)

3793 1893 isabella Quarter Ms66 PCGs. An extremely pleasing and (predictably) problem-free example of this very popular quarter dollar commemorative. Most of each side is brilliant but there is a large, light brown splash of color on the upper obverse and a faint trace of the same color on the lower reverse. The Isabella is always at the top of collectors want lists, especially in high grade. PCGS has graded only 36 coins in higher numeric grades (1/12). (#9220)

3790 2003-P Ms69 PCGs. Most Sacagawea dollars have flaws in terms of noticeable abrasions (a common problem due to the open fields on each side of the design), planchet roughness, or luster grazes.

superb Gem 1935 arkansas Half one of the Great Commemorative Condition Rarities

3799 1935 arkansas Ms67 PCGs. Arkansas halves are well-known as condition rarities, the primary problem being heavy marks on the conjoined busts on the obverse. This is a remarkably clean example and one that shares the MS67 grade with only 10 others at PCGS with none finer at either service (2/12). The centers are nearly brilliant and the rims are outlined in deep russet patina, perhaps from many years storage in an old album. (#9233) 3800 1937-s arkansas Ms66 PCGs.

1912-D Half struck on a 1902 Half, Fine 15 surely a one-of-a-Kind Error

3879 1912-D Barber Half struck on a 1902 Half Fine 15 nGC. The host coin is a 1902 Barber half dollar, either from the Philadelphia or New Orleans Mint as just a suggestion of a possible previous mintmark is visible, and of course the Denver Mint was barely under construction in 1902 and didnt begin operation until 1906. The host coin then made its way to Denver, where it found its way into the coin press for Barber half dollars a decade later. All four digits of the 1902 date are clearly visible, overlapping and slightly left of the 1912 date. Considerable additional detail is closely overlapping, appearing as a shift strike if the 1902 date wasnt present. This is a stunning and almost certainly unique mint error with pleasing surfaces and natural light gray-tan color on both sides. All of LIBERTY is clearly visible, and all other detail is consistent with the assigned grade. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2010), lot 938.

3893 1861 Half Dollar, Judd-277, Pollock-326, Low r.7, Pr63 PCGs. The design is similar to the regular issue Seated half dollar, but GOD OUR TRUST is placed within a scroll above the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. There are two variants of this scarce pattern, the difference depending on the placement of the date in the exergue. This particular piece shows the 1 in the date below the shield point rather than shifted to the left. Probably fewer than a dozen of each are known. Each side of this piece has bright centers with rings of russet and blue around the margins. The strike is full, and there are a few light, wispy hairlines in the fields that limit the grade. (#12100)

3895 1863 Half Dollar, Judd-344, Pollock-416, High r.7, Pr63 nGC. A regular issue 1863 obverse is paired with a regular issue (post-1866) With Motto reverse. Although dated 1863, this piece was likely struck in the early 1870s as part of a complete denominational set of 1863 With Motto patterns. These were probably struck at the same time as the 1864- and 1865-dated With Motto restrikes. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Each side shows russet-colored streaks. These appear to not be oxidation, but rather some problem in the production of the aluminum planchet. (#60506)

1861 Copper GOD OUr trUst Half Judd-278, Pr64 red and Brown

Choice Proof 1866 Washington nickel Judd-473, Issued rays reverse

3894 1861 Half Dollar, Judd-278, Pollock-329, Low r.7, Pr64 red and Brown nGC. The design is similar to the regular issue Seated half dollar, but GOD OUR TRUST is placed within a scroll above the eagle. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. Like the silver version above, the copper strikings also show differing date placement. On this example the shield point is much nearer the 8 in the date than the first 1. Significant amounts of original mint red remain with mottled brown on the obverse, deeper cherry-red toward the margin on the reverse. Struck from a heavily striated die. Pleasing overall preservation. (#12103)

3896 1866 Five Cents, Judd-473, Pollock-564, Low r.6, Pr64 PCGs. Many varieties of Washington five cent patterns are known, but the familiar Shield design was issued instead. The IN GOD WE TRUST Washington obverse die of Judd-464 through Judd-472 is paired with the issued Rays reverse design. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Dappled chestnut-gold and pearl-gray toning confirms the originality of the well struck, undisturbed, and moderately mirrored surfaces. Encased in a green label holder. (#60669)

For the specific set of dies, the tip of the cap is under the ES in STATES. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. The experts at uspatterns.com suggest 2 or 3 known as a population for this aluminum delicacy, though perhaps a couple more than that exist. This is the sole finest Cameo example certified by a major service (1/12), though of course it has little competition for the title. Well-preserved aluminum surfaces are minimally toned with excellent contrast. The reverse is rotated slightly counterclockwise relative to coin turn. (#61189)

The reverse has 50 CENTS in the center surrounded by a wreath of cotton and corn with STANDARD above. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. This is the most frequently available of the four Longacre designs of 1871, but it is still a Low R.7. The design is magnificent and the surfaces are well-preserved. The fields are deeply mirrored and the cameo effect is undeniable. Warm rosegolden toning covers most of the obverse, while the reverse has a hazy brilliance with just a tinge of light color.

1872 Copper Dies trial Half Dollar Judd-1203, Pr66 red and Brown

The Pollock variety with star 13 close to the curl and the upright of the B in PLURIBUS beneath the right foot of the second T in STATES. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A rare pattern that enjoys considerable popularity due to the kinship in obverse design with the famous half union patterns. Light golden overtones drape the considerable mirrors and the modestly frosted devices. Census: 1 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (2/12). (#61915)

3911 1872 Half Dollar, Judd-1203, Pollock-1343, r.7, Pr66 red and Brown PCGs. Traditionally termed a regular dies trial piece but there is no logical reason for the production of copper or aluminum strikings of the 1872 half dollar in off metals. USPatterns.com states: it is more likely that the off-metal trials of this year were deliberately struck for sale to collectors as part of complete offmetal sets. Nevertheless, these pieces are exceptionally rare with only three or four known in each metal. It appears this is the first example we have offered in copper. The surfaces retain impressive amounts of original red with slight blue and brown patina in the fields. Brightly reflective fields. (#71474)

near-Gem Proof 1879 Morgan Half Dollar Popular and Very rare Judd-1599 Variety

GOLD DOLLars
3915 1849-D Obverse struck through aU53 nGC. Variety 1-a. A bean-shaped strike-through, as made, is conspicuous on the lower right obverse field. Otherwise, the rose-gold surfaces are undisturbed and display glimmers of satin luster. Wear on the hair near the ear determines the grade.(#7507)

radiant Ms62 1849-D Gold Dollar scarcer B reverse

3916 1849-D Ms62 nGC. Variety 1-B. Scarcer of two varieties for the year, distinguished by the die crack through the top of the mintmark, which is nearly centered under the knot in the wreath. Surprisingly radiant for a first-year Dahlonega gold dollar, though the bold all-around design definition will elicit few complaints. A gleaming yellow-gold piece. Census: 27 in 62, 24 finer (2/12). (#7507)

near-Gem 1849-O Gold Dollar Open Wreath, repunched Letters

3913 1879 Morgan Half Dollar, Judd-1599, Pollock-1794, High r.6, Pr64 PCGs. CaC. The obverse is dominated by a portrait of Liberty nearly identical to that on the Morgan dollar, but appropriately reduced in size for the half dollar denomination. The peripheral inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM and the accompanied stars differ in placement from the Morgan dollar. The reverse features an eagle with partially spread wings, holding an olive branch in the right talon and a trio of arrows in its left claws. IN GOD WE TRUST is widely spaced below, along with the denomination and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. A softly struck piece but with clear proof surface, this near-Gem specimen has rich silver, gold, lavender, violet, and blue patina. As a Morgan-portrait example in an alternate denomination, this pattern has broader collector appeal than many of its peers, pushing demand beyond what the very rare supply can handle. (#61977) 3914 1942 Cent, Judd-2060, Pollock-4035, Low r.7 reverse Graffiti nGC Details. Unc, struck in brown plastic with a plain edge, the reverse is scratched at 3, 6, 9, and 12 oclock and has the pinscratched notation F5; and an Uncertified type two Planchet for a Judd-2060 cent, unabraded with even, prominent raised rims and a series of concentric grooves on each side.(Total: 2 items)

3917 1849-O Open Wreath Ms64 PCGs. Variety 1. The Open Wreath design was apparently not fully hubbed, since the R in DOLLAR and the ME in AMERICA are clearly repunched. This is a coruscating near-Gem with a virtually full strike and smooth khakigold surfaces. The introductory New Orleans issue is collectible in XF-AU and desirable in the present quality. Population: 18 in 64, 5 finer (1/12). (#7508) 3918 1851-C aU58 nGC. Variety 1. The low date variety of this challenging Charlotte Mint issue. Substantial luster bathes the borders of this crisply struck and originally toned example. Minimally abraded despite a faint scuff above the OL in DOLLAR. (#7514) 3919 1852-C XF40 PCGs. Variety 2. Original orange-gold toning blankets unabraded and attractive surfaces. A good strike with moderate merging of detail at the center of the portrait. Ex: West Palm Beach FUN (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1272. (#7518) 3920 1853 Ms64 nGC. CaC. An amazing example with rich honey-gold surfaces showing frosty mint luster and bold design details.

Choice type two 1854 Gold Dollar

3921 1853 Ms65 nGC. A lovely Gem, this 1853 gold dollar is highly frosted with rich orange-gold color. Both sides have minimal marks that are consistent with the grade. The strike is strong on each side, just lacking a bit of definition in the centers to qualify as a full strike. NGC has certified just 67 finer examples of this plentiful issue (2/12). (#7521) 3922 1853-C reverse repaired nGC Details. aU. The reverse appears whizzed, and the obverse is hairlined, but this Charlotte gold dollar displays substantial design definition. Generally olive-gold with chestnut-tan toning at the reverse periphery. (#7522)

1854 type two Gold Dollar, Ms62 sharp struck throughout

3923 1854 type two Ms62 nGC. The U.S. gold dollar issues of 18491889 are always popular, likely for a number of reasons that include their diminutive size, providing eager numismatists with an easy entre into the realm of U.S. gold type collecting. The gold dollars self-categorize into three easily distinguished types, all distinctly different in design and/or size. Perhaps it is their tripartite nature that lends to their appeal. Of the three types, by far the most elusive in higher grades is the Type Two issues, of which the 1854 and 1855 Philadelphia coins are usually pursued for type purposes. This is a sharply defined example with no softness in the center of the reverse, as usual found. The mint luster is softly frosted, there are a couple of grade-limiting marks on the obverse; otherwise the only noticeable interruption in the fields are the usually seen die clash marks. (#7531)

3924 1854 type two Ms64 PCGs. CaC. The redesigned Type Two gold dollars featured an enlargement of 2 mm over the Type One planchets, as well as the new Indian Princess Head design on the obverse. Unfortunately, the new design also juxtaposed the highpoints of each side, leading to poor striking qualities. Due to their generous mintages, the 1854 and 1855 P-mint gold dollars are those that type collectors usually turn to for a Type Two specimen of this short-lived gold dollar design. The present piece offers lustrous orange-yellow surfaces that show the typical moderate clash marks on each side. Marks are surprisingly few, though we note a thin line beneath the first T in STATES.

near-Gem 1855 Gold Dollar Great type two type Coin

1855-O type two Gold Dollar, Ms62 Bright, semireflective Fields

3925 1855 Ms64 PCGs. The wider, thinner Type Two gold dollar design was struck in three separate years, but only two issues have high enough populations to be of interest to type collectors: the Philadelphia dates 1854 and 1855. Both are available for a price in grades through MS64, though very scarce any better. This frosty apricot-gold representative has a few areas with a deep peach overtone. Both sides are softly struck with clash marks, which are more prominent on the reverse. This minimally marked near-Gem has added appeal thanks to the first-generation PCGS rattler holder. PCGS has graded 50 numerically finer pieces (1/12). From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#7532) 3926 1855-O aU55 nGC. Variety 1. A partially lustrous butter-gold Choice AU example of the sole New Orleans Type Two issue. Nicely struck and free from consequential contact. Just 55,000 pieces were coined.(#7535)

3927 1855-O Ms62 nGC. Type Two gold dollars from the Southern mints pose a challenge for type collectors due to the short-lived design. Such pieces were struck in the South only in 1855, though all three facilities got in on the action. Of the three, the New Orleans Mint produced the most gold dollars by far, 55,000 pieces, but the issue is a condition rarity in MS62 and better grades. This example has a distinctly green-gold appearance and strong luster that takes on reflective elements through the fields, where a number of wispy abrasions combine to account for the grade. Census: 22 in 62, 18 finer (2/12). (#7535)

3928 1857 Ms65 PCGs. The 1857 gold dollar is an available date and a popular choice among type collectors seeking an example of the Type Three design. This delightful Gem specimen displays sharply detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster, with attractive orange-gold surfaces. Population: 12 in 65, 14 finer (2/12). (#7544)

3930 1861 Ms65 nGC. CaC. Despite the large mintage of 527,150 pieces, the 1861 gold dollar is very scarce in Gem condition, and quite rare in any finer grade. This attractive Gem displays welldetailed design elements and vibrant satiny mint luster, with only insignificant signs of contact. Census: 30 in 65, 10 finer (2/12). (#7558) 3931 1882 Ms64 PCGs. This magnificent peach-gold 1882 dollar is housed in a circa-1990 PCGS holder, which might explain why the coin appears to be conservatively graded. A few pinpoint strikethroughs are as made, but post-strike contact is limited to a few delicate hairlines near DOLLAR. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#7583)

Magnificent Ms67 1888 Gold Dollar

3929 1857-D aU58 nGC. Luster brightens design elements of this orange and wheat-gold Dahlonega dollar. The surfaces are original and are unabraded aside from a few brief marks on the obverse field. Clashed at the centers, as often seen on this rare issue. A mere 3,533 pieces were produced. Census: 28 in 58, 14 finer (2/12). (#7546)

3932 1888 Ms67 nGC. By the last years of the gold dollar, it was more a delicacy than a working denomination, and high-grade examples abound. Coins as high-end as this Superb Gem, however, are still scarce. Strongly detailed devices emerge from apricottinged devices that offer a mix of semireflective and cartwheeled luster. NGC has graded just three pieces as MS68 or better (1/12). (#7589)

PrOOF GOLD DOLLar

1882 Gold Dollar, Pr68 Ultra Cameo Finest Certified by nGC

3933 1882 Pr68 Ultra Cameo nGC. This astonishingly beautiful

specimen is the sole finest Ultra Cameo proof for the issue certified by NGC (2/12), and its inherent quality is readily apparent both up close and from far away. Each side sports fantastic black-and-gold contrast with the devices sharply struck and amply frosted. Virtually flawless mirrors supply outstanding contrast, and the eye appeal is overwhelming. Examination with a strong magnifier only reveals a couple of tiny planchet voids in the fields on each side. The fields also display a light orange-peel effect, a result of the gold planchet having been overheated in an annealing oven previously set at a higher temperature for a silver, nickel, or copper proof planchet. As noted in Garrett-Guth, business strikes have a normal 2 in the date, but the proof strikings show a defective 2, most likely a result of repunching. They also note that the finest example is a PR67. This stunning coin is every bit a PR68, and certainly deserves top honors as the finest certified 1882. In fact, it is only tied in the entire series with two other Ultra Cameo coins and 10 Cameo pieces (2/12). This is a simply splendid example of this widely popular proof gold dollar issue, at 125 pieces struck the first three-figure proof mintage for the denomination since 1861. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1494; Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 1202. (#97632)

Well-defined devices show no trace of wear, and the lemon-yellow fields around them are bright with luster, semireflective on the obverse with full mirrors gleaming on the reverse. An intriguing early quarter eagle. (#7669)

3939 1841-D aU58 nGC. CaC. Variety 2-C. In overall rarity among Dahlonega quarter eagles, Doug Winter rates the 1841-D fifth of 20 issues, and in high-grade rarity it is also ranked fifth of 20, with only seven to nine pieces believed known in AU grades. The 1841-D quarter eagle is generally sharply struck, and this qualifies for that definition. Rich golden-orange color characterizes this coin, and the fields are unusually bright. The most distinctive pedigree identifier on this example is a die crack from the eagles right breast down through the I of AMERICA to the rim. Also, a horizontal mark is seen across the base of Libertys neck. NGC has graded just three Mint State pieces finer, and PCGS only two (1/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 2156; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2008), lot 1920. (#7722)

Low-Mintage 1842-D Quarter eagle, aU53

select Mint state 1847-O Quarter eagle Impressively Lustrous

3940 1842-D aU53 nGC. Just one die variety is known for the 42-D, hardly a surprise given the minimal mintage of 4,643 pieces. This untoned and luminous example is nicely struck for a Dahlonega product, and only trivial abrasions are evident. A few minor strikethroughs, as made, are noted near star 12, beneath the beak, and on the reverse rim at 11 oclock. (#7725) 3941 1842-O XF45 PCGs. A single die pair is known from the low production of 19,800 pieces. A sea-green and butter-gold representative with sharp design definition and only a few marks, the most apparent beneath the E in UNITED. Population: 17 in 45, 36 finer (1/12).(#7726) 3942 1847 aU58 nGC. Minor marks and faint hairlines are evident on both sides of this near-Mint quarter eagle. Gold production in 1847 consisted almost entirely of half eagles and eagles, with only 29,814 quarter eagles minted. Few of those survive today. Census: 42 in 58, 22 finer (2/12).(#7744) 3943 1847-O aU58 nGC. Variety 5. The 1 touches both the date and the dentils. The mintmark touches the fraction bar. The fields display bold clash marks. This untoned and unblemished Borderline Uncirculated example has a typical strike, though the curls left of the coronet are sharp.(#7747)

Uncirculated 1847-O two and a Half

3944 1847-O Ms61 nGC. Variety 1. The base of the 1 in the date is sharply repunched, and the mintmark is centered over the tip of the fraction bar. Well struck and lightly abraded with bright luster throughout the devices and margins. A New Orleans issue typically seen in VF to XF grades and rare in Mint State. Census: 17 in 61, 11 finer (2/12). (#7747)

3945 1847-O Ms63 PCGs. Variety 4. The 1 in the date is repunched and in the dentils; top of fraction bar on the reverse aligns to the right side of the mintmark. New Orleans had a banner year for gold coinage output in 1847, and this piece demonstrates that some of the dies were stretched to near their limits to accomplish such a large production. The reverse shows numerous die cracks, as created. The 1847-O also has a reputation as among the most poorly struck New Orleans gold coins, and this coin shows softly defined centers, but the surfaces are lustrous throughout, the swirling fields radiating yellow-gold warmth. Minimally abraded overall and a gorgeous representative of the date. Population: 1 in 63, 1 finer (1/12). (#7747) 3946 1848-C XF40 nGC. Variety 2. All 1848-C quarter eagles are rare, but Variety 2 is much rarer than Variety 1. The date is entered further right, but more importantly, the obverse die is buckled at the area of the date. Metal flow to the lower obverse gives the bust truncation, and the eagles head opposite, a featureless appearance. This is a chestnut-tan example with smooth, original surfaces. (#7750)

Population: 42 in 63, 37 finer (2/12).(#7759) 3948 1854-C Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. This caramel-gold representative is mildly luminous from cleaning but abrasions are more minor than is usual for the AU level. The centers are lightly impressed but subtle luster resides within design recesses. Only 7,295 pieces were struck for this elusive Charlotte date.(#7770)

1859-D Quarter eagle, Ms61 absolute and Condition rarity

Mint state 1854-C two and a Half

3949 1854-C Ms60 nGC. Only one die marriage is known from the mintage of 7,295 pieces. This luminous straw-gold Charlotte representative has well struck borders, though central elements are incompletely brought up. Abrasions are inconsequential to the grade, but the die clashed surfaces display minute mint-made strikethroughs, particularly near the bust tip. Census: 4 in 60, 16 finer (2/12). (#7770)

1858-C two and a Half, Ms61

3950 1858-C Ms61 PCGs. A scant 9,056 pieces were coined for this difficult Charlotte issue, and Mint State survivors are unquestionably elusive. The present canary-gold example has a pleasing strike despite minor softness on the shield and eagles leg. Luster fills design elements, and marks are confined to a diagonal line on the cheek and another near star 11. Population: 7 in 61, 19 finer (1/12). (#7787)

3951 1859-D Ms61 nGC. Variety 21-M. An Uncirculated representative of this popular final year D-mint. Only 2,244 pieces were struck of this final-year issue, and a mere 120-140 coins are believed known in all grades. The surfaces on this coin are bright and semireflective with lighter yellow-gold coloration and the usual soft strike in the centers. There are no planchet distractions worthy of mention and the most recognizable post-minting feature is a short hairline scratch that extends horizontally from the base of Libertys neck to a point just above star 1. The 1859-D quarter eagle is seldom offered for sale in mint condition. Census: 7 in 61, 1 finer (2/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2003), lot 4713; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 4012. (#7789) 3952 1862 aU55 PCGs. The quarter eagle mintage of 1862 was limited to 98,508 coins during this early Civil War year, with survivors seldom encountered in any grade. This Choice AU example has nearly full luster with brilliant yellow surfaces and splashes of orange overtones. Population: 15 in 55, 35 finer (2/12). (#7796)

Orange-Gold 1863-s Quarter eagle, Ms61 an Underrated Condition rarity

1866 two and a Half, Ms62 Low-Mintage Date, Only 3,080 Pieces struck

3953 1863-s Ms61 PCGs. Garrett and Guth call the 1863-S two and a half a very rare and generally under-appreciated date, noting: Only 10,800 coins were struck, and most of these saw immediate and heavy circulation. Almost any San Francisco gold coin from the Civil War years is a rarity in Mint State, and the 1863-S quarter eagle is hardly an exception. This MS61 example has rich orangegold coloration through the margins with a blush of yellow-rose over Libertys portrait. A strongly defined coin, it shows scattered small digs and wispy abrasions, though few such flaws attract attention to themselves. Great all-around eye appeal. Population: 1 in 61, 2 finer (1/12). (#7799)

3954 1866 Ms62 nGC. While not as rare as the 1865, the 1866 quarter eagle still grabs the attention of specialists. Only 3,080 business strikes were coined, making it a notable rarity in the series. Only 59 pieces have been seen by the major services, which translates to a survivorship of 35-50 individual examples in all grades. In mint condition, only eight pieces have been certified, the finest two of which are Gems. Like the 1865, the 1866s production run was low enough that the initial die polish did not diminish by successive strikes. This piece has bright, sparkling fields on each side. As always, the eagles left (facing) leg shows considerable weakness, but the other design elements are well struck. Even reddish patina is seen over each side. Census: 2 in 62, 2 finer (1/12). (#7803) 3955 1872-s aU58 PCGs. A splendid near-Mint specimen, this 1872-S has vibrant lemon-yellow surfaces with nearly full luster and bold design motifs. Population: 10 in 58, 8 finer (1/12). (#7816) 3956 1879 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. An intricately struck better date quarter eagle with booming luster and lovely apricot-gold color. Only a couple of minor grazes limit the grade. Certified in a green label holder. Population: 52 in 64, 17 finer (1/12).(#7830)

1887 Quarter eagle, Ms66 Bright reflective Fields, Finest Known

Ms66 1895 Quarter eagle Just 6,000 Pieces Issued

3959 1895 Ms66 nGC. A magnificent orange-gold Premium Gem of this better date Liberty two and a half. A scant 6,000 commercial pieces were struck, likely a token production intended to prevent speculation on the 119 proofs also coined that year. The present high grade example has a razor-sharp strike and an uncommonly smooth appearance. Census: 14 in 66, 4 finer (2/12). (#7847)

Gem 1896 two and a Half Low-Mintage sleeper

3957 1887 Ms66 nGC. The present lot is the single finest certified business strike 1887 quarter eagle, the only piece to attain the MS66 level at either major grading service (2/12). The 1887 has a low mintage of 6,160 pieces, excluding the 122 proofs coined. This appreciably reflective Premium Gem is well struck aside from star 1 and the upper left reverse dentils. The flashy fields display only microscopic contact. Presumably sold in the past as a proof, but not from proof 1887 dies, which have the date set higher in the field. A prize for the collector who will not settle for less than the finest obtainable quality. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2010), lot 1535. (#7839)

3960 1896 Ms65 PCGs. A scant mintage of 19,070 pieces should make the 1896 a much better date within the Liberty quarter eagle series, but the issue is listed strictly at type prices in the 2012 Guide Book. At the MS65 level, however, the issue is perhaps 20 times scarcer than the 1907. The present sun-gold Gem is fully struck and appears pristine aside from a couple of faint grazes on the cheek and near the chin. (#7848)

1888 Quarter eagle, Gem Uncirculated Low-Mintage Date


3961 1899 Ms67 PCGs. CaC. This is a fabulous type coin. The surfaces are brightly frosted with mint luster and each side has rich orange-gold color. The strike is complete throughout and strong magnification will be needed to find the few tiny field marks that are (barely) present. Final year of the 19th century and as such coins from 1899 are always popular. Population: 6 in 67, 0 finer (2/12). (#7851)

3958 1888 Ms65 nGC. CaC. Quarter eagles of the 1880s and 1890s were all low mintage issues as the Philadelphia Mint was concentrating on Morgan dollars and larger denomination gold coins at the time. This Gem has frosty luster with faint violet toning over the brilliant yellow surfaces. Census: 24 in 65, 6 finer (2/12). (#7840)

Premium Gem Proof 1884 Quarter eagle rare Date With Cameo Contrast

3962 1901 Ms67 PCGs. CaC. The 1901 quarter eagle is known for its generally high quality and the date is quite popular with type collectors. This magnificent Superb Gem exhibits razor-sharp definition on all design elements, with vibrant mint luster and attractive orange-gold surfaces. The fields are remarkably wellpreserved and eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 7 in 67, 1 finer (1/12). (#7853) 3963 1903 Ms65 nGC. Highly lustrous with frosty mint brilliance and bright lemon-yellow surfaces, this piece hosts a few trivial copper spots of little concern. A splendid specimen for the gold connoisseur.(#7855) 3964 1905 Ms66 nGC. Greenish-gold patina occupies the lustrous surfaces of this Premium Gem, with accents of delicate rose. Sharply struck and minimally marked. Very difficult to locate any finer.(#7857) 3965 1907 Ms66 nGC. Bright luster endows the well preserved, yellow-gold surfaces of this Premium Gem. Sharply struck on the design elements. A fine example for a high-grade type collection. (#7859)

Ms67+ 1907 two and a Half

3966 1907 Ms67+ nGC. It is true that 20th century Liberty quarter eagles can be encountered in high grades, but the present Superb Gem is close to pristine. The coruscating straw-gold surfaces exhibit a good strike and uncommon eye appeal. Census: 11 in 67+ , 4 none finer with a Star designation (2/12). (#7859)

3967 1884 Pr66 Cameo nGC. Only 73 proof Liberty quarter eagles were struck in 1884, and the business-strike mintage was less than 2,000 pieces. Probably no more than 30-40 examples of the proof mintage remain extant in all grades. The present coin is a magnificent Premium Gem, with sharply detailed, richly frosted design elements that contrast boldly with the brightly mirrored fields. On close inspection, the light greenish-gold surfaces show the orange-peel effect characteristic of the best 19th century gold proofs. This coin should find a home in a fine collection of Liberty quarter eagles. Census: 4 in 66, 1 finer (2/12). (#87910)

1892 Quarter eagle, Pr64 Deep Cameo Low total Mintage

1899 Pr67 Ultra Cameo Quarter eagle Magnificent Contrast

3968 1892 Pr64 Deep Cameo PCGs. The proof mintage of 105 pieces for this issue complements the business strike emission of only 2,440 examples, providing extra pressure on the small supply of proof coins from date collectors. Many business strikes are understandably prooflike, deceptively so, according to Garrett and Guth. The authors also note that many proof examples are impaired or damaged. Not so the present specimen, with excellently contrasting surfaces, reddish-gold coloration, and a bold, problemfree strike that brings up all the fine detail to good advantage. Population: 7 in 64 Deep Cameo, 6 finer (1/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 3433, realized $18,975. (#97918)

3969 1899 Pr67 Ultra Cameo nGC. A richly toned Superb Gem that displays apricot and orange shades. The original color and exceptional eye appeal were undoubtedly the inspiration for the NGC Star designation. This is a razor-sharp and pristine specimen with glassy fields and luminous devices. The sole identifier for pedigree purposes is a tiny lint mark (as coined) on the field above the nose tip of Liberty. Only 150 proofs were issued, and few of those survive in the present remarkable quality. Census: 7 in 67 Ultra Cameo, 2 finer with a Star designation (2/12). (#97925)

1900 Pr64 Cameo Quarter eagle strongly Contrasted, evenly Balanced appearance

3970 1900 Pr64 Cameo nGC. The 1900 quarter eagle is one of the more available dates among the later dates in the Liberty quarter eagle series. The mintage was 205 pieces and probably over 100 examples are extant today, many of which are Cameo or Deep/ Ultra Cameo. This is a lovely piece of proof gold, and a turn-of-thecentury date to boot. A few tiny contact marks are seen in the left and right obverse fields and others are scattered around the reverse. The contrast is undeniable. (#87926)

Gleaming Pr64 1903 Quarter eagle

1911-D two and a Half, aU Details sharp Mintmark

3971 1903 Pr64 nGC. This near-Gem specimen hails from the second year of the brilliant era in proof coinage, and while there is slight contrast between fields and devices, the latter still show a great deal of the reflectivity shown by the former. The piece is sharply detailed with pale yellow interiors and a deeper sun-yellow shade toward the rims. Minor hairlines have little effect on the appeal, at least to the unaided eye, but go a long way toward determining the grade. Census: 27 in 64, 25 finer (2/12). (#7929)

3975 1911-D Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. The 1911D has a constant demand from collectors in all grades. It is the key to a short and otherwise readily completable series, one that has the revolutionary reduced relief and realistic Native American figure. This is quite a nice piece, one that does not show obvious signs of cleaning. Each side has a slight tinge of reddish patina, and the mintmark is sharply defined.

1905 Pr62 Quarter eagle Deeply Mirrored example

Key 1911-D two and a Half aU sharpness

3972 1905 Pr62 PCGs. CaC. The 1905 is one of the more frequently encountered post-1900 proof quarter eagles. From its initial mintage of 144 pieces, It is found in a wide variety of conditions. This is a deeply mirrored example that displays surprising contrast against the lightly contrasted devices on the reverse. Scattered light hairlines and a few contact marks explain the technical grade, but the coin actually presents finer than the stated condition. (#7931)

3976 1911-D Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. The allimportant Denver mintmark is bold on this key date quarter eagle. The devices are intricately detailed and show only marginal wear. The caramel-gold surfaces are mildly subdued by cleaning, but many collectors would be proud to possess such a sharp example. (#7943)

This near-Mint specimen is sharply detailed with a bold mintmark. The light yellow surfaces have nearly full satin luster. (#7943)

This well struck low mintage two and a half has a prominent mintmark and is mark-free save for faint thin lines beneath the R in LIBERTY and above the first U in PLURIBUS. Mildly prooflike because of a past wipe, but hairlines are absent and the eye appeal is attractive. (#7943)

Mint state sharpness Key 1911-D Quarter eagle

3979 1911-D aU58 PCGs. The new Pratt-designed Indian Head quarter eagles and half eagles debuted in 1908, but it would be 1911 before the Denver Mint made its first foray into the smaller denomination, manufacturing a meager production of 55,680 pieces beginning on April 18. San Francisco never struck an example of the new quarter eagle design during its run from 1908 to 1929, but the 1911-D issue exposed a flaw in the design. The mintmark was punched into the die, making it the only part of the coin that was raised above the surface of the flat fields. The coins are prone both to weak strikes, in the form of the so-called Weak D examples of the 1911-D, and to wear on the mintmark. Most collectors, of course, prize examples with a bold mintmark and as little wear as possible. This example has a well-defined mintmark and only slight evidence of friction over the Indians cheekbone. The surfaces display rich orange-gold color and there are no noticeable abrasions. (#7943)

3982 1911-D Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. Full design detail including a bold mintmark makes this key date quarter eagle desirable despite slightly luminous surfaces from a careful but ill-advised wipe. The obverse is unabraded and the reverse field displays only a few thin marks, the most noticeable through the first letter in IN GOD WE TRUST. (#7943)

1911-D strong D Quarter eagle, aU58 Bright With Just the Faintest Friction

3983 1911-D Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. A crisp Denver mintmark and precise design detail combines with a mark-free appearance to ensure the desirability of this key date representative. The satin luster is diminished by a mild cleaning, but many collectors would nonetheless cherish the present piece. (#7943)

3980 1911-D strong D aU58 PCGs. Because of the importance of the visibility of the mintmark on this key issue, PCGS now designates coins with an obvious D as Strong D. This is a splendid example with bright yellow-gold surfaces and just a whisper of friction over the cheek of the Indian. The strike is strong not only on the mintmark but sharp elsewhere as well, with especially good definition on the lowest feather in the headdress. Terrific value and eye appeal for the sharp-eyed collector. (#7943)

3988 1914 Ms63 nGC. Though overshadowed by the 1911-D quarter eagle (and what non-1911-D issue is not?), the 1914 is challenging in its own right, though usually available for a price. This lightly abraded Select piece is decently detailed, including full pendants on the necklace, and has a pale yellow area at the lower right obverse that deepens to amber-gold elsewhere. (#7946)

1914 Quarter eagle, Ms64 sharply struck and Lustrous

3984 1911-D Ms64 PCGs. This is an absolutely stunning near-Gem 1911-D quarter eagle with intense, satiny luster and a substantial amount of rose-orange and lilac patina on each side. The overall strike is essentially full with crisp definition over all features, even the all-important D mintmark, and the diagnostic knifelike rim on the upper right obverse is distinct even within the holder. The 55,680 quarter eagles struck in 1911 represent the Denver Mints first delivery of that denomination. Only two other issues would be struck in this branch mint before cessation of the denomination in 1929. Ex: ANA Signature Auction (Heritage, 7/2004), lot 8101. (#7943)

3989 1914 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This better-date Philadelphia issue has notably clean surfaces with bright, sparkling mint luster. The strike is strong throughout. Each side is remarkably clean, the only exception being a couple of microscopic marks on the high point of the Indians cheek and small abrasions scattered through the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. (#7946) 3990 1914-D Ms63 PCGs. Brilliant yellow surfaces, frosty luster, and bold design motifs characterize this Select Mint State 1914-D quarter eagle. Both sides exhibit a raised inner rim that is common to this issue.(#7947) 3991 1914-D Ms63 nGC. Despite a mintage of 448,000 coins, a rather high mintage for Indian quarter eagles, the 1914-D is a rarity in higher Mint State grades. This lemon-yellow specimen has satiny surfaces and only trivial marks.(#7947)

3985 1912 Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. Collectors know how difficult it is to locate pleasing, high-grade examples of the Indian quarter eagle and half eagle design. This is, of course, because the reduced relief of the coin exposes the fields as the highest points of the coin, leaving large areas subject to abrasions. This is an exceptionally clean piece that is also well struck and shows even, orange-gold mint luster. Population: 8 in 64+, 62 finer (2/12). (#7944)

Not only is it the first year of issue for the reduced relief Indian design, and a low mintage date with only 236 struck, but all proofs also have a distinctive and quite lovely deep khaki color. The surfaces of this example are attractive, although not quite perfect. A noticeable mar is seen in the center of the reverse on the eagles wing. This offering represents a rare opportunity to purchase a matte proof Indian quarter eagle at an affordable price. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2006), lot 3405. (#7957)

Famous 1854-D three Dollar, aU55 Odd-Denomination southern Gold

4002 1854-D aU55 PCGs secure. It is an open question whether

the three dollar gold piece was wanted at all by more than a tiny subset of Americans. An even bigger question: what could the demand have been for three dollar gold coins in the southeastern U.S., where the Charlotte and Dahlonega Mints stood among largely played-out gold fields? The answer to the latter, at least, is not much demand at all, as evidenced by the mintages at the two facilities: none for Charlotte, and just 1,120 pieces for Dahlonega. The combination of Southern-gold charm, the odd denomination, and low-mintage rarity is irresistible to many collectors. Alongside the unique 1870-S and proof-only 1875 and 1876 issues, the 1854-D is a stopper of the series, even though a number of later Philadelphia issues of the 1880s technically have lower mintages; by that time, the three dollar gold piece effectively had stopped circulating, and higher-end pieces were the rule, not the exception. The reverse, of course, is true for the 1854-D, manufactured in one of the most unfavorable conditions for a U.S. coin. That this Choice AU example is lustrous at all sets it apart from most of its peers, but it goes a step beyond, showcasing generous yellow-to-orange luminosity. Wear appears mainly on the high points, such as Libertys leading hair and the rounded tops of the wreath elements. Minimally abraded and with a patina of authenticity, this is a rewarding survivor that should appeal to a range of Southern gold and odd-denomination enthusiasts. Population: 19 in 55, 12 finer (1/12). (#7970)

1857-s three Dollar Gold Piece, aU55 Low 14,000 Coin Mintage

Handsome Ms62 1856 three Dollar


4008 1857-s aU55 nGC. A mintage of 14,000 pieces entered circulation, and survival was a matter of chance. The average certified grade is about XF40, and Choice AU or finer pieces are rarely encountered. Subdued yellow-gold surfaces appear on this scarce three dollar gold piece. Hints of green are evident on each side with traces of satin luster in the protected areas. Census: 25 in 55, 11 finer (2/12). (#7977)

1863 three Dollar Gold Piece, aU53 Highest Mintage Until 1874
4005 1856 Ms62 PCGs. A lovely lemon-tinted example with exceptionally clean surfaces despite a hair-thin mark on the field behind Libertys neck and another above the D in DOLLAR. Crisply struck with extensive luster and impressive eye appeal. The 1856 has less than one-fifth the mintage of the 1854, an early indication that demand for the three dollar piece was limited. (#7974)

scarce 1856-s three Dollar, aU55

4009 1863 aU53 nGC. An important Civil War three dollar gold piece, the 1863 had a mintage of 5,000 business strikes and survivors are rare in all grades. This lustrous yellow-gold example has light wear on the high points, with green and rose overtones on each side. A dozen years would pass until the mintage figure was exceeded when the flood gates opened and 41,800 were struck in 1874. (#7984)

4006 1856-s aU55 nGC. Medium S. The familiar San Francisco reverse die with a small break or tail beneath the second L in DOLLARS. The apricot-gold surfaces display ample luster within the legends and devices. Surprisingly unabraded aside from a couple of small marks on the right obverse field. (#7975)

1864 three Dollar Gold, aU58 Underrated Civil War Date

1857 three Dollar Gold Piece, Ms61 Condition scarcity

4010 1864 aU58 nGC. Issued at the height of the Civil War, the 1864 three dollar gold piece is an underrated date from a low mintage of 2,600 pieces. This impressive near-Mint specimen is well-detailed, with just a touch of actual wear on the high points of the design. The lightly abraded surfaces are partially prooflike. Census: 45 in 58, 40 finer (2/12). (#7985) 4007 1857 Ms61 nGC. A distinctive Mint State specimen, this 1857 has frosty light yellow surfaces with hints of green toning, and a splash of pinkish-violet at the upper reverse. Faintly reflective fields add to the overall eye appeal of this example. NGC has certified 81 finer pieces (2/12). (#7976) 4011 1869 aU55 nGC. A Reconstruction Era rarity struck just four years after the end of the Civil War, the 1869 three dollar gold piece had a business strike mintage of 2,500 coins, and most survivors are circulated. This Choice AU example has light green and lilac patina over nearly full luster.(#7990)

1870 three Dollar Gold, aU58+ Only 3,500 Pieces struck

Gem 1878 three Dollar exemplary Gold type Coin

4012 1870 aU58+ PCGs. CaC. Three dollar gold pieces were minted in small quantities in the years after the Civil War, and only 3,500 business-strike examples were struck in 1870. This high-end nearGem piece displays well-detailed design elements on lustrous orange-gold surfaces. Population: 1 in 58+, 32 finer (2/12). (#7991)

near-Mint 1871 three Dollar Unheralded Better Date

4013 1871 aU58 PCGs. CaC. An attractive apricot-gold near-Mint representative with flashy fields and a precise strike. Though abrasions are inconsequential for the grade, we note a few small dark spots on each side. A scarce date even by the difficult standards of the three dollar series. Only 1,300 pieces were coined. (#7993) 4014 1878 aU58 PCGs. Only 10 three dollar gold pieces had mintages of 10,000 or more coins, and the 1878 ranks second among those 10 with a production of 82,304 coins. This piece combines pale blue toning with vibrant lemon-yellow luster and only a trace of wear on the high points.(#8000)

4015 1878 Ms65 nGC. The three dollar denomination was never struck in great quantity, but mintages were particularly low after 1859, with the exception of the 1874 and 1878. Likely, Mint officials believed that the three dollar piece would return to circulation once the paper dollar achieved parity with its gold equivalent. However, the public had become accustomed to using paper money, and where gold coin was used, the half eagle through double eagle offered greater convenience. The scarcity of the three dollar denomination ensures demand for the 1878, especially in the lofty Gem grade. This is a lustrous yellow-gold representative that boasts an intricate strike and only inconsequential field grazes. (#8000)

near- Mint 1879 three Dollar Gold Partially Prooflike surfaces

4016 1879 aU58 PCGs. This attractive near-Mint 1879 three dollar gold piece exhibits pleasing yellow-gold surfaces, with highlights of green color and prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas. The well-detailed design elements show only the slightest trace of actual wear and only minor signs of contact can be detected. (#8001)

1882 three Dollar, Ms62 Only 1,500 Commercial strikes

4019 1882 Ms62 PCGs secure. This flashy yellow-gold three dollar piece is nicely struck and void of detrimental abrasions. Luster is especially prominent on the reverse, the portrait, and the obverse margin. As always on business strikes of this low mintage date, the 2 in the date is widely repunched north. A meager 1,500 pieces were struck. (#8004)

smooth Ms62 1887 three Dollar

4020 1887 Ms62 PCGs. A mildly prooflike pumpkin-gold example that boasts a crisp strike and unperturbed surfaces. LIBERTY and AMERICA are nicely die doubled, one of many interesting varieties within the series made irrelevant by perennially low mintages. The 1887 has a business production of 6,000 pieces, and perhaps a tenth of that number have survived. (#8009) 4017 1881 Ms64 PCGs. The appeal of the 1881 three dollar issue begins and ends with the mintage: just 500 business strikes. The paltry number gives the date instant appeal in any grade, though it is more accessible than earlier rarities at the various Mint State levels. This is an attractive MS64 coin that adds condition rarity to the low-mintage appeal. Semireflective fields are pale yellow-gold and offer slight contrast with the subtly frosted texture of the welldefined devices. The coin is minimally marked and would make an excellent addition to a specialized series collection. Population: 5 in 64, 1 finer (1/12). (#8003) 4021 1888 aU50 PCGs. Reflective fields and satin devices appear on both sides of this light yellow example. An unusual grade, as most survivors are full Mint State pieces. This example has light high point wear with pleasing surfaces that show only a few faint hairlines.(#8010)

1882 three Dollar, near-Mint Bright reflective Fields on each side

4018 1882 aU58 PCGs. CaC. With a mintage of only 1,500 pieces, essentially all strikes for circulation were first strikes. As such, prooflikeness can be expected. This example has bright, reflective fields on each side with just a bit of fuzziness from brief handling in circulation. There are numerous small, but individually insignificant abrasions scattered about. (#8004)

1860 three Dollar Gold near-Gem Cameo Proof

Cameo select Proof 1888 three Dollar excellent Introduction to Proof series

4022 1860 Pr64 Cameo nGC. Neither proofs nor business strikes were produced of the three dollar gold in any large quantities in 1860 119 of the former, a bit more than 7,000 of the latter and both have an extremely low survival rate today. Bowers estimates in his series reference that only 10 to 12 proofs survive, pointing out that perhaps only 20 pieces were actually distributed. Bowers writes: For decades the 1860 has been viewed as a first-class rarity among Proofs in the $3 series. The actual number surviving appears to be somewhat higher than Bowers estimate, although it is a virtual certainty that the certified populations are dotted with duplications. This near-Gem Cameo proof offers bright yellow-gold surfaces that are deeply mirrored and noticeably frosted. The faint granularity appearing in the fields is common on proofs. A small planchet flaw occurs beneath the R in DOLLARS. Census: 5 in 64 Cameo, 4 finer (2/12). (#88023)

4023 1888 Pr63 Cameo PCGs. CaC. The 1888 had the highest proof mintage of any three dollar gold issue, its stated production of 291 pieces the second-highest of any gold denomination (after the similarly obsolete gold dollar). In practice, this is the most available proof three dollar issue, according to the combined certified populations, and so a coin such as this Select Cameo specimen makes a great entry for new collectors of odd-denomination proof gold. Though lightly hairlined, this piece has great contrast between moderately frosted, pale yellow devices and fields that range from apricot on the reverse to a fuller orange on the obverse. Population: 7 in 63 Cameo, 11 finer (1/12). (#88052)

4024 1888 Pr64 Ultra Cameo nGC. The 1888 sports the highest proof mintage of any three dollar gold coin (291 pieces). Many examples must have been saved, as NGC and PCGS have seen about 230 coins, making the issue extremely popular among proof type collectors. The near-Gem Ultra Cameo specimen in the current lot stands out among surviving examples in that it is the only three dollar piece given this designation by NGC (1/12). Both sides display pronounced gold-black contrast and attractive peach-gold patination. The design elements are exactingly struck, further adding to the coins pleasing eye appeal. Light handling marks preclude a higher numerical grade. (#98052)

The perfect T in LIBERTY easily identifies the BD-4 variety, which was once believed to be extremely rare, but is now recognized as only scarce. This attractive AU58 example is well-detailed and brightly lustrous, with pleasing orange-gold surfaces. A few faint adjustment marks are evident on the lower obverse rim. (#8084)

The obverse die is immediately identified by the heavy crack beneath the date, as also seen on the very rare 1798 Small Eagle BD-1. This is a pleasing lemon-gold representative with ample luster and a good strike. Marks are inconsequential save for a faint thin diagonal line on the eagles neck.

This MS62 example has gently rolling yellow-gold luster and a decent strike, with clear weakness only at the obverse stars.

BD-6 is the sole die marriage of the Capped Bust type with a 7x6 star arrangement, but fortunately for collectors, it is plentiful by the rarified standards of the series. This is a hairlined and glossy example with a few light marks on the nose and minor rim abrasions at 2:30 on the obverse and 3:30 on the reverse.

Though unevenly struck central details on the eagle are soft, while the obverse stars are far sharper this piece has great detail with atmospheric yellow-gold luster and only a handful of abrasions with any depth.

Fortunately for collectors, the first-year 1813 is comparatively available. The present butter-gold representative is refreshingly devoid of abrasions, though we note a pinpoint mark on the cheek for those who track auction appearances of the issue. Luster dominates the borders and devices, and the strike is good with only moderate blending of detail at the high points. (#8116) 4035 1818 ex-Jewelry, Damaged, Polished anaCs. VF20 Details.

Pleasing luster extent brightens the apricot-gold surfaces of this near-Mint Dahlonega type coin. Smooth save for a brief slender mark beneath the jaw and a mint-made strike-through beneath the F in FIVE. (#8221) 4049 1844-O aU58 nGC. Variety 2.

Several prominent date-punch errors exist for the high-mintage 1847 half eagle issue, though only one, the FS-301 with the top of an errant 7 just above the denticles, is listed in the Guide Book. On this Choice Mint State representative, the top of the 7 is partly broken-down but still visible to the unaided eye. Aside from the excitement of the variety, this is a quality pre-Civil War Liberty half eagle, sharply struck with blossoming yellow-gold luster and few individually significant marks outside the left obverse field.

This is a splendidly detailed and minimally abraded Charlotte half eagle with minutely granular olive-gold surfaces. The stars are well-struck, and the fletchings show only minor incompleteness. (#8241) 4055 1850 aU58 nGC. Both sides of this near-Mint specimen have nearly full satin luster with only a hint of high-point wear. An exceptional example that is seldom found so fine. Census: 28 in 58, 7 finer (2/12).(#8243)

4058 1853-D Large D aU55 nGC. Variety 29-V. Five varieties employ various combinations of two obverse and four reverse dies. The date is left-aligned with the bust tip and the mintmark leans left above to the E in FIVE. This pleasing light yellow example has hints of pale greenish overtones with strong luster. Splashes of pale orange appear on the reverse. Marks are minimal and eye appeal is excellent. (#8255)

radiant aU50 1855-C Five Dollar

1852-D Half eagle, aU50 Variety 28-U


4059 1855-C aU50 nGC. Variety 1. Sole die pair, in an earlier state without the spectacular die break across the first few letters of AMERICA. Lightly worn but radiant, this example has pale, almost white gold interiors with richer butter-yellow hues close to the margins. Numerous scattered abrasions contribute to the grade. Census: 10 in 50, 78 finer (2/12). (#8262) 4060 1856-C Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. XF. Variety 1. Sole die pair for the year. Though this mid-decade Charlotte gold coins yellow surfaces show obvious aftereffects of cleaning, it has quality details for the grade, at least in the centers; peripheral devices such as the stars are more uneven.(#8267)

4056 1852-D aU50 nGC. Variety 28-U. The 1852-D Liberty five is one of the more available D-mint half eagles, from a mintage of 91,584 pieces. The first numeral in the date is positioned to the right of the bust tip, indicating Variety 28-U. The present coin is a well-detailed AU specimen, showing the typical soft strike seen on most examples of this issue. Traces of mint luster cling to the orange-gold surfaces. (#8252)

Unmarked 1859-C Five Dollar, aU53

4064 1876-CC VG8 PCGs. This delightful low-grade 1876-CC half eagle obviously did more than its share of work in commerce before being rescued by a collector in the late 19th or early 20th century. Both sides are light yellow with only a few trivial handling marks. (#8340)

aU 1878-CC Five Dollar rare Low-Mintage Issue

4061 1859-C aU53 nGC. This green-gold Southern branch mint five retains its original skin and is free from detrimental marks. The sole planchet imperfection is minor and limited to the second S in STATES. As always for this scarce Charlotte issue, the eagle has indistinct definition due to an indifferently prepared reverse die. The borders are well struck and the stars show crisp radials. (#8281)

1868-s Half eagle, aU53 Conditionally rare in Mint state

4062 1868-s aU53 nGC. The 1868-S Liberty half eagle is a condition rarity in Mint State grades, and examples in AU53 condition are quite elusive. This lightly worn specimen retains most of its original detail and mint luster, with pleasing greenish-gold surfaces that show only minor abrasions. Census: 12 in 53, 55 finer (2/12). (#8316)

rare aU 1871-CC Five Dollar

4063 1871-CC aU50 PCGs. Variety 1-a. The usually seen Wide CC reverse for this challenging low mintage Carson City issue, though a very rare Close CC variety is known. Rich butter-gold toning graces this attractive AU half eagle. Well struck at the borders, though the eagles neck and Libertys curls and eyebrow are incompletely brought up. Minimally abraded save for a brief thin mark near the M in AMERICA. Population: 5 in 50, 16 finer (1/12). (#8323)

4065 1878-CC aU50 nGC. A low survival rate and a minimal mintage of 9,054 pieces ensures the rarity of this Carson City emission. Only a single 78-CC has been certified as Mint State, and the typical example grades XF. The present representative is straw-gold with smooth and slightly luminous surfaces. A lint mark over the branch stem is of mint origin, and the only two remotely mentionable abrasions are cheek of Liberty and the back of her neck. The strike is good by the standards of the Western facility, though the eagles neck and Libertys neck display incompleteness. Census: 5 in 50, 16 finer (2/12). (#8346) 4066 1879 Ms63 nGC. CaC. This frosty and highly lustrous Select Mint State specimen is an exceptional representative of the conditionally scarce 1879 half eagle with brilliant yellow-gold surfaces and trivial, grade-consistent marks. Census: 35 in 63, 25 finer (2/12).(#8348)

1883-CC Half eagle, aU55 Underrated Carson City Issue

splendid Ms63 1892-CC Half eagle Condition Census Quality

4067 1883-CC aU55 PCGs. Variety 1-a. The 1883-CC half eagle is an underrated issue from a mintage of 12,958 pieces. Doug Winter estimates the surviving population at 100-125 examples in all grades, and attractive Choice AU specimens, like the present coin, are quite rare. This impressive coin features well-detailed design elements, with a little softness on the eagles head. The surfaces are lightly abraded and show prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas. Population: 10 in 55, 17 finer (1/12). (#8362) 4068 1883-s Ms63 PCGs. Distinct green and rose tones appear on the satiny yellow-gold surfaces of this Select Mint State half eagle. The mintage was only 83,200 coins, and the few that survive are rarely as nice as this example. The average certified grade is about AU55. Population: 29 in 63, 3 finer (2/12).(#8363)

4072 1892-CC Ms63 nGC. Vibrant cartwheel luster and minimally abraded surfaces ensure the eye appeal of this sharply struck Carson City five dollar. A desirable example that will no doubt command spirited floor bidding. The 92-CC is readily located in AU and bagmarked Mint State, but is surprisingly rare above the MS62 level. Census: 9 in 63, 4 finer (2/12). (#8380) 4073 1898-s Ms63 PCGs. A conditionally rare half eagle, the 1898S had a mintage of nearly 1.4 million coins but a low survival rate. The average certified grade is less than MS60. This Select Mint State specimen has brilliant yellow surfaces with frosty luster and sharp design motifs. Population: 61 in 63, 39 finer (2/12). (#8397) 4074 1900 Ms64 PCGs. Crisply struck with saturated butter-yellow color over much of each side and a smaller, paler core. Small, scattered marks are consistent with the near-Gem grade. PCGS has graded 91 numerically finer examples (2/12).(#8400) 4075 1900 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. An impressive Choice Mint State half eagle struck in the final year of operation at the second Mint facility in Philadelphia, this specimen has frosty yellow luster with sharp design elements and excellent eye appeal.(#8400) 4076 1901/0-s Ms64 nGC. Fs-301. The curve of an underdigit is obvious near the northeast corner of the second 1 in the date. A lustrous and crisply struck apricot-gold near-Gem without any detrimental marks.(#8403)

1884-CC Half eagle, aU55 Variety 1-a, Only Known Die Pair

4069 1884-CC aU55 nGC. Variety 1-a. Only one die pair is known for the 1884-CC half eagles, producing 16,402 of those coins. This pleasing example has trivial marks on each side, as expected for the grade. Both sides exhibit light yellow surfaces with considerable rose overtones, retaining nearly full luster. Census: 49 in 55, 51 finer (2/12). (#8365)

1903-s Half eagle, Ms65+ extraordinary Luster and Color

shimmering Gem 1885 Half eagle

4077 1903-s Ms65+ PCGs. CaC. An amazing Gem S-Mint half eagle that carries the + designation, this piece survives from a mintage that approached 2 million coins, with few remaining in such remarkable preservation. This boldly detailed example has satiny yellow-gold luster with splashes of orange on each side. Population: 1 in 65+, 14 finer (2/12). (#8408) 4070 1885 Ms65 nGC. Despite a generous mintage of just over 600,000 pieces, the 1885 half eagle emerges as a condition rarity at the Gem level. This NGC-certified MS65 coin has sharp detail, as often seen, but the near-absence of abrasions on its peach-andyellow surfaces is a welcome surprise. Census: 12 in 65, 1 finer (2/12). (#8367) 4071 1885-s Ms64 PCGs. Sharply struck with brilliant yellow-gold surfaces, this Choice Mint State example has exceptional eye appeal. Scattered surface marks on each side are entirely trivial and expected for the grade. PCGS has only certified 42 finer (2/12). (#8368)

4078 1906-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. An impressive near-Gem, this 1906-S Liberty five is highly lustrous with bright yellow surfaces and sharp design motifs. Conditionally rare and always in demand. Population: 31 in 64, 16 finer (2/12).(#8415) 4079 1907-D Ms64 nGC. Only two Denver Mint Liberty half eagles were coined, and both are rather plentiful. This specimen has a bold strike with satiny yellow-gold luster and excellent eye appeal. (#8417)

XF Details 1909-O Five

4080 1907-D Ms66 PCGs. This high grade Liberty type coin is well struck with lustrous honey-tinged surfaces. Only negligible abrasions can be seen upon evaluation beneath a loupe. This early Denver Mint issue is readily secured in bagmarked Mint State but is rare in the present quality. Population: 15 in 66, 2 finer (2/12). (#8417)

4084 1909-O Damaged nGC Details. XF. This straw-gold key date half eagle has numerous vertical marks on the obverse, but the reverse appears problem-free save for faint hairlines characteristic of the XF grade. The mintmark is low relief but nicely outlined. The final gold issue from the New Orleans Mint. (#8515)

1908 Indian Five Dollar, Ms64 Minimally Marked, nice Original Luster

Choice aU 1909-O Half eagle Lightly Circulated Key Issue

4081 1908 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This is a popular first-year issue that was saved in relatively high numbers as a curiosity. This is a lovely, highly lustrous example that is strongly struck throughout. The deep orange-gold color shows intermittent dashes of original lilac on each side. Minimally abraded. (#8510) 4082 1908-s aU58 nGC. The 1908-S Indian half eagle is always popular because it represents the first year of the design and claims an extremely low mintage. This attractive near-Mint specimen is well-detailed and lustrous, with highlights of rose, yellow, and lilac. (#8512)

1908-s Indian Five, Ms62 Bela Lyon Pratts Incuse Design

4083 1908-s Ms62 nGC. The San Francisco Mint coined 82,000 Indian eagles in the debut year of 1908, and the issue is considered scarce in all grades with an average certified grade of AU58. This lustrous specimen has light yellow surfaces with faint hairlines and scattered marks visible only under magnification. (#8512)

4085 1909-O aU55 nGC. CaC. The 1909-O half eagle is an anachronistic coinage, the last gold issue produced at the superannuated New Orleans Mint and the only Indian Head production from that facility; in fact, it was the first O-mint half eagle produced since the 1894-O Liberty Head issue 15 years before. The 1909-O was produced to the extent of 34,200 pieces, littleproduced and lesser-saved as an unnoticed mintmarked issue that was not a first-year production. This Choice AU example should fill the want list of many a collector, showing light, even wear over the design elements. The only mentionable marks are in the area of IN GOD WE TRUST. (#8515)

Mint state 1909-O Five Dollar end of an era in new Orleans

1911 Ms64+ Five Dollar Bright, Lustrous surfaces

4088 1911 Ms64+ PCGs. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold and show minimal abrasions on each side. Examples of the Indian five dollar are seldom located in such a superior state, and this piece is an especially good value as it is so close to a Gem designation. Sharply struck overall with the only noticeable weakness seen on the lowest feather in the headdress. Population: 18 in 64+, 48 finer (2/12). (#8520) 4089 1911-D aU55 nGC. Dark greenish patina appears on both sides of this still-lustrous Choice AU specimen. The 1911-D is a scarce date in the series from a limited mintage of 72,500 pieces. (#8521)

surprisingly Colorful 1912-s Five, Ms62

4086 1909-O Ms60 nGC. By 1909, the New Orleans Mint was an obsolete antique. Reopened in 1879 after a hiatus during the Civil War and Reconstruction, it was the last of the original branch mints in use, and it suffered by comparison to the main Mint in Philadelphia and the branch mints, San Francisco and especially the newly established facility in Denver. For its last year of production, 1909, the New Orleans Mint struck a single gold issue, 34,200 half eagles, whose survivors collectively form a key date among Indian half eagles even as they close the Southern gold chapter of U.S. Mint history. A scarce Mint State survivor, this MS60 coin has a number of light digs and abrasions, especially in the area of E PLURIBUS UNUM. Yet for all the evidence of coin-to-coin contact, this apricot-gold piece is luminous throughout and has no trace of wear. The winning bidder likely will be someone able to appreciate its qualities in person; neither text nor images can convey all the facets of this piece. (#8515) 4087 1909-s aU58 nGC. The 1909-S Indian half eagle is an elusive issue in all Mint state grades. This impressive near-Mint example is boldly detailed, with subtle mint luster and accents of yellow, rose, and amber patina.(#8516)

4090 1912-s Ms62 nGC. A luminous example of the 1912-S half eagle, challenging in Mint State despite a mintage of 392,000 pieces. Though the strike is typically soft, the eye appeal is strong, thanks to understated luster and a mixture of deep orange and violet colors. A great opportunity for a series specialist. Census: 53 in 62, 26 finer (2/12). (#8524) 4091 1913 Ms63 PCGs. CaC. Faint green overtones appear on the highly lustrous yellow-gold surfaces of this Select Mint State 1913 half eagle. Representative of a plentiful date and likely destined for a gold type set.(#8525)

4093 1915-s aU58 nGC. Both sides of this near-Mint specimen retain nearly full luster with straw-gold color and excellent eye appeal. A scarce date in the Indian half eagle series.(#8531)

Copper-toned Ms62 1915-s Half eagle

4094 1915-s Ms62 nGC. An uncommonly well-defined example of this challenging S-mint Indian five, an issue seldom seen in Mint State. Generous orange-gold luster has numerous dots of emerald and jade on the obverse where the copper mixture has toned, though the more strongly abraded reverse has just a few spots along the rim. Census: 79 in 62, 21 finer (2/12). (#8531) 4095 1916-s Ms61 nGC. Lustrous rose-gold surfaces exhibit sharp design motifs with splashes of dark greenish patina. Both sides show the scattered surface marks expected for the grade. (#8532)

select 1916-s Indian Five Colorful surfaces

4092 1915 Ms65 nGC. The Indian quarter and half eagles present special challenges to condition-conscious collectors, because the fields and high points of the devices are exposed equally. The 1915 half eagle, despite a mintage of more than half a million pieces, is a borderline condition rarity in the MS65 band and unavailable any finer (1/12). This Gem shimmers when turned in the light, its apricot-accented yellow-gold luster subtly frosted. Both sides have solidly defined devices, including fully outlined pendants on the necklace, and the surfaces are smooth with few marks of any seriousness. (#8530)

4096 1916-s Ms63 PCGs. The orange-gold surfaces of this Select 1916-S Indian half eagle display only minor contact marks and a few highlights of red and green color. The design elements are well-detailed and mint luster is strong, but subtle. The 1916-S is a scarce issue in Select condition and higher grades are quite elusive. (#8532)

superb Gem Matte Proof 1912 Half eagle an exquisitely struck Marvel

4097 1912 Pr67 nGC. A century perhaps a touch more or

less has passed since this exquisite matte proof half eagle was struck. At the time, the issue as a whole was not much in demand. The changes to gold coinage designs that took place in 1907 and 1908 swept out the brilliant-mirror proof finish along with the Gobrecht and Longacre effigies. In place of the mirrors, a matte finish then popular in Europe was installed. The matte finish had its admirers among a subset of highly advanced collectors, but previously loyal customers complained in droves. In 1909 and 1910, the Mint experimented with a hybrid finish, popularly called Roman gold, but the compromise was a wretched one, and by 1911, the Mint was back to a matte finish for gold proofs, which it carried on until 1915, the last of the classic proof dates. To a certain extent, the matte proof gold issues remain polarizing today, or at least an acquired taste, though the overall reception is far better now. Collectors particularly prize the highest-end representatives, and a coin such as the present Superb Gem specimen certainly would qualify. Delicate facets give the honey-mustard surfaces the subtlest appearance of life but otherwise do not draw attention to themselves. The focus, instead, is on the crisply struck details, just as the European pioneers of matte proofs had intended. This exquisitely preserved piece is sure to appeal to proof gold connoisseurs. Census: 17 in 67, 3 finer (2/12). (#8543)

4098 1795 13 Leaves Bent nGC Details. XF. BD-4, r.5. Moderately wavy, most evident near the O in OF and the field to the right of the date. The straw-gold surfaces are mildly glossy but lack mentionable abrasions. Luster fills the wings and emerges from other design crevices. The breast feathers are mostly worn but Libertys curls provide ample detail. The introductory Small Eagle type was only struck through mid-1797 and is highly elusive relative to demand. BD-4 is scarcer than the usually encountered 1795 variety, BD-1. Ex: Royce Samuels Auction (Steve Ivy, 5/1981), lot 1566, flip included. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection. (#8551)

4099 1801 Ms61 nGC. BD-2, r.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. Both dies are perfect with no clash marks, die cracks, or evidence of lapping. The obverse has nine vertical spines in the cap, but their source is unknown. They are not clash marks. On the obverse, star 1 is distant from the hair curl, star 8 is close to the cap, and star 13 nearly touches the drapery. Each of those star positions is individually diagnostic for the plentiful BD-2 of 1801, far the most common early eagle variety of any date from 1795 to 1804. This lovely Mint State specimen has satiny yellow surfaces with faint violet overtones. The prooflike reverse shows numerous faint adjustment marks that were mostly obliterated when this piece was minted. (#8564)

4105 1852-O aU50 PCGs. Variety 2. Blended sea-green and honeygold attest to the originality of this well defined and low mintage New Orleans No Motto ten. Refreshingly unabraded except for a faded thin mark above star 13. As always for the 52-O, a shield ring is present atop the second vertical stripe. Population: 16 in 50, 19 finer (1/12). (#8609) 4101 1844-O aU58 nGC. Variety 1. Four die marriages are known for the 1844-O. Variety 1 is distinguished by a misplaced date digit in the dentils beneath the 8 in the date and repunching within the inner loop of the mintmark. This boldly struck near-Mint example has original butter-gold color and is only moderately marked save for a slender abrasion above the beak. (#8591) 4102 1848 aU58 nGC. A crisply struck and surprisingly unabraded straw-gold No Motto ten. Luster brightens design elements. This example has a shield ring, similar to that on the 1851-O except that the vertical shield lines extend over the ring. Census: 44 in 58, 26 finer (2/12).(#8599) 4106 1853/2 aU53 nGC. Fs-301. The lower curve and point of an underdigit 2 is obvious within the 3. Bright luster dominates design elements of this crisply struck honey-gold overdated No Motto ten. Distributed moderate marks are customary for lightly circulated examples of the type.(#8611) 4107 1854-s XF45 PCGs. Traces of luster remain on each side of this lovely S-Mint eagle, struck in the first year of San Francisco Mint operation. Most 1854-S coins are rare, although the eagle and especially the double eagle are common.(#8615) 4108 1855-O Damaged nGC Details. XF. Variety 2. The meager mintage of 18,000 pieces makes any example of the 1855-O worthy of numismatic consideration. This is a slightly bright representative with a granular texture on the reverse and distributed abrasions on both sides.(#8617)

4103 1849-O XF45 nGC. Variety 3. This rare variety has a ring at the top of the second vertical shield stripe, with the mintmark centered over the left serif of the N in TEN. Bright mustard-yellow surfaces have accompanying blue-green toning on each side of this Choice XF. Considerable luster remains visible for the grade. An impressive and important New Orleans eagle. Census: 20 in 45, 46 finer (2/12). (#8602) 4104 1851-O aU55 PCGs. Variety 1. Three die marriages are currently confirmed, all of which have a shield ring atop the second vertical stripe.

Douglas Winter (2006) identifies two die varieties from the mintage of just 18,000 pieces, but his repunched date listing turned out to be strike doubling on the only confirmed die pair. The present Choice XF New Orleans No Motto example displays pockets of bright luster and shows only moderate wear.

4111 1868-s aU58 nGC. The 1868-S eagle is difficult to locate in any level of preservation. NGC and PCGS have certified only about 130 pieces, all in circulated grades. The two services have seen a mere 12 near-Mint State examples, the present coin being one of these. Both sides possess ample luster and well defined design features. Only the star centers and eagles neck feathers are a tad soft. The only mentionable marks are two brief thin marks on the upper-left obverse field. Census: 10 in 58, 0 finer (2/12). (#8654)

4116 1874-CC Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. aU. Variety 1-a. The 1874-CC Liberty eagle is one of the more available early dates in the Carson City series, with an estimated surviving population of 150-175 examples in all grades. Like many Carson City coins of this period, the strike on this specimen is softer on the obverse than the reverse. The surfaces show an unnatural brightness, with shades of green, rose, and orange color.

1875-CC eagle, XF Details elusive, Underrated Date

Choice Fine 1872-CC eagle

4112 1872-CC Fine 15 nGC. Variety 1-B. The more available of the two known die marriages, but any 1872-CC eagle is rare due to a mintage of just 4,600 pieces, none of which were saved for numismatic reasons until the 20th century. NGC has yet to certify any examples above AU55. The present Choice Fine example displays the expected level of wear on Libertys hair and the eagles wings, but the shield lines are distinct. Marks are few and unimportant given its extent in circulation, though for pedigree purposes we note a faded pinscratch behind the hairbun. (#8664)

4117 1875-CC Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. XF. Variety 1-a. The 1875-CC Liberty ten is one of the most elusive eagles from the Carson City Mint, with an estimated surviving population of 65-75 pieces in all grades. This specimen shows the typical soft strike on the obverse, but the reverse is more strongly impressed. The surfaces show an unnatural sheen, due to a previous cleaning, but traces of mint luster remain in protected areas. (#8673) 4118 1878-s aU55 nGC. Pale yellow surfaces retain nearly full satin luster on this Choice AU example, with only a trace of wear on the high points. Trivial surface marks are minimal on this low-mintage piece.

4124 1888-s Ms63 PCGs. Despite the modest grade that results from scattered surface marks, this is a stunning example with brilliant orange-gold luster, sharp design elements, and reflective, nearly prooflike fields. PCGS has only certified three examples in finer grades (2/12).(#8714) 4125 1889-s Ms63+ PCGs. CaC. A well struck apricot and sea-green representative with good luster and no remotely distracting marks. The 1889-S is fairly common in typical mint state but becomes rare above the MS63 level. Population: 1 in 63+, 19 finer (2/12). (#8716) 4126 1891-CC aU58 nGC. CaC. Variety 1-a. Booming luster sweeps this solidly struck canary-gold Carson City type coin. The scattered marks are consistent with a brief stint in Old West commerce.(#8720) 4127 1891-CC Ms61 PCGs. Variety 1-a. Straw-gold surfaces exhibit well struck design features. Moderate marks are scattered about, resulting in occasional breaks in the luster flow. Popular as a Carson City type coin.(#8720)

4119 1879-O XF45 PCGs. After an 18-year gap, the New Orleans Mint reopened in 1879 with the express purpose of helping the other branch mints produce Morgan dollars to fulfill the BlandAllison Act. In addition, New Orleans struck tiny mintages of eagles (1,500 pieces) and double eagles (2,325 pieces). While the double eagles command huge prices today, the 1879-O ten is affordable relative to its rarity. The present yellow-gold example has moderate wear and occasional glimpses of luster. A few minor marks are noted on the left reverse. Population: 11 in 45, 20 finer (1/12). (#8685) 4120 1881-CC Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. VF. A single die pair is known from the low mintage of 24,015. This orange-gold and cream-gray Carson City ten is hairlined but is void of scratches or other visible marks.(#8692) 4121 1881-CC aU50 nGC. A single die pair is known from the low mintage of 24,015 pieces. This Carson City representative has pleasing luster extent and is without any detracting marks. We do note a strike-through mint error that affects the lower right border of the eagles neck.(#8692)

Lustrous Ms62 1891-CC ten

smooth Choice aU 1882-CC eagle

4128 1891-CC Ms62 PCGs. Variety 1-a. This lemon-gold Carson City type coin boasts booming luster and an exemplary strike. Only lightly marked for the MS62 level, though we note a faint reeding impression on the chin. The 1891-CC is the most prevalent ten dollar issue from the legendary Western facility but is always in demand. (#8720) 4129 1893-s Ms62 nGC. Frosty light yellow surfaces and strong design details are evident on both sides of this moderately marked eagle. Plentiful at this grade, the 1893-S is rarely seen in finer grades. (#8728) 4130 1894 Ms64+ PCGs. The conditionally rare 1894 is plentiful in abraded Mint State grades but is an important find in the present quality. The green-gold surfaces teem with luster and exhibit a bold strike. Population: 4 in 64+, 1 finer (1/12).(#8729)

4122 1882-CC aU55 nGC. An impressive example of this challenging Carson City issue. Bright luster dominates the margins and other design recesses. No marks are remotely consequential, and the wings and the hair above the ear show only slight wear. The low mintage 1882-CC is rare in all grades and nearly uncollectible in Mint State. (#8696) 4123 1883-s Ms61 PCGs. CaC. Myriad surface marks appear on both sides of this frosty yellow-gold eagle. Only 38,000 of these were minted, and few survive today. Hints of orange and olive patina are evident on each side. Population: 18 in 61, 23 finer (2/12). (#8702)

4131 1895 Ms64 PCGs. The 1895 is common in bagmarked Mint State, but is surprisingly elusive at the MS64 level and is nearly unobtainable as a Gem. This crisply struck representative exhibits sweeping luster and a number of wispy field grazes. Population: 53 in 64, 2 finer (1/12).(#8732)

Condition rarity Ms65 1895 eagle

Fabulous Ms66+ 1898 eagle

4132 1895 Ms65 PCGs. While this date is seen with some frequency in grades through MS64, it is extremely rare in Gem and better condition; PCGS records show just two MS65 coins and none numerically finer (1/12). The only previous Heritage appearance of a Gem-or-better example of the issue, for an MS66 NGC coin, dates back to 1996. The rich, slightly satiny luster on this coin is deep yellow-orange with occasional ripening toward the latter color. The strike is uneven on the obverse stars, but the central devices offer bold definition, and the patinated surfaces are refreshingly undisturbed. Population: 2 in 65, 0 finer (1/12). (#8732) 4133 1895-O aU58 nGC. Variety 2. This Borderline Uncirculated New Orleans ten is minimally abraded aside from a small rim ding on the reverse at 6:30. Luster dominates the reverse and the obverse border. Libertys hair is also lustrous.(#8733) 4134 1897-s Ms61 PCGs. Myriad surface marks on each side include a heavy mark near star 3, the only consequential imperfection on this elusive piece. The surfaces are bright yellow with reflective fields. A single copper spot appears on the reverse at the U of UNITED. Population: 27 in 61, 45 finer (2/12).(#8739) 4135 1897-s Ms62 PCGs. CaC. Satiny yellow-gold surfaces display faint green and rose overtones on this brilliant and fully lustrous specimen. The mintage of 234,750 coins seems sufficient to supply collectors today, but this issue is conditionally scarce with finer examples rarely encountered. Population: 25 in 62, 20 finer (2/12). (#8739) 4136 1898 Ms64 nGC. In the MS64 grade, the 1898 is considerably scarcer than its 1899 Philadelphia successor yet trades at similar levels. A crisply struck and lustrous honey-gold near-Gem with a small number of wispy field grazes. Certified in a former generation holder.(#8740)

4137 1898 Ms66+ nGC. Garrett and Guth write of this date: Despite its high mintage, the 1898 eagle is nowhere near as common as dates such as 1893, 1897, 1899, 1901, 1901-S, and 1907. Apparently, far fewer of this date were shipped to Europe, or they are still there waiting to be discovered. This effect is especially pronounced above the Gem level, where the date is a condition rarity. This MS66+ example is satiny and beautiful with a strong peach-orange tint to the obverse, while the reverse is brighter with a more yellow hue. Excellent detail and eye appeal in spades. Census: 1 in 66+, 2 finer (1/12). (#8740)

1901-O Liberty ten, Ms64+ Only One Finer Coin at PCGs

4138 1901-O Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. Variety 1. This near-Gem Liberty eagle is well struck save for the right (facing) claw. The sun-gold surfaces display only wispy marks, and the portrait is well preserved. The 1901-O is among the more available New Orleans issues, but is nonetheless rare at the MS64+ level and virtually unobtainable any finer. Population: 1 in 64+, 1 finer (1/12). (#8748)

4139 1903 Ms63 PCGs. CaC. An elusive issue in finer grades with only 48 better pieces certified by PCGS (2/12), this Select Mint State 1903 eagle has reflective fields and sharp design features with lovely honey-gold surfaces.(#8752) 4140 1903-O Ms62 nGC. CaC. Variety 1. All Motto New Orleans issues are better dates due to low mintages. The 1903-O is among the more available, but is virtually unknown above the MS64 level. The present well struck MS62 example displays unbroken cartwheel luster and has a few wispy abrasions near the profile. (#8753) 4141 1903-s Ms64 nGC. CaC. This caramel-gold near-Gem offers dazzling luster and a precise strike. Surface imperfections are few and minor. The 1903-S is the only Liberty eagle issue with more coins certified as MS64 than as MS62.(#8754)

Collectible Pr55 1901 ten Dollar

select Mint state 1904-O eagle rich apricot-Gold Luster

4145 1901 Pr55 PCGs. The proof 1901 ten dollar is seldom encountered. Only 85 proofs were struck, and many examples were eventually spent, since ten dollars went far in commerce during the early 20th century. Even coin dealers of the day often deposited proofs, since such pieces were out of collector budgets and difficult to sell at a premium. This well-struck example retains considerable flashy luster throughout the borders. Scattered moderate marks are typical for a lightly circulated larger denomination gold piece. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3646, which realized $8,050. (#8841)

Cameo Gem Proof 1907 Liberty ten

4142 1904-O Ms63 nGC. MS63 is an important grade threshold for the 1904-O eagle, as the date is scarce at the Select level and a condition rarity any better. This modestly abraded example is decently struck overall, if uneven on the star details, and rich apricot-gold luster charms under light patina. Minor coppery patches appear at the upper-to-left reverse rim. Census: 43 in 63, 12 finer (2/12). (#8756) 4143 1906-D Ms63+ PCGs. CaC. This sharply defined Select Mint State piece has brilliant yellow-gold luster with satiny surfaces and excellent eye appeal. Highly popular with collectors as the first Denver Mint coinage.(#8760)

Briefly Circulated Proof 1901 eagle

4144 1901 Pr55 PCGs. The 1901 ten dollar is a seldom-seen date with only 85 proofs struck. Of that number, it is reliably estimated that today probably no more than two dozen pieces exist in all grades as recognizable proofs. The uniform depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields of this coin leave no doubt about its proof status. Exposed areas display chatter from a short period of handling in the channels of commerce. Ex: New York Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 6620, which realized $5,750. (#8841)

4146 1907 Pr65 Cameo nGC. Earlier in the nations history, such as in 1883 and 1892, a change in coinage design had led to increased production of proofs. That wasnt the case for the 1907 Liberty eagle, since the proof mintage of 74 pieces was the smallest since 1898. Deep cameo specimens are unknown, with none certified as Ultra Cameo by NGC or Deep Cameo by PCGS. Nonetheless, the present coin has outstanding cameo contrast on the reverse, and obverse contrast is also impressive. The strike is full, as expected of a proof, and the mirrored fields are virtually void of the most trivial imperfections. (#88847)

Premium Gem 1907 Indian eagle Popular First-year, no Periods Design

Unmarked Ms62+ 1908-s eagle elusive Low-Mintage Issue

4149 1908-s Ms62+ PCGs. CaC. The 1908-S is the first of several low mintage San Francisco issues within this relatively short but challenging series. The present representative offers coruscating luster, rich peach and olive toning, a good strike, and only minor marks. Most 08-S tens are in circulated grades, due to the hard money tradition of the West. (#8861) 4150 1909-s aU58 nGC. Vivid green and rose-gold surfaces add to the eye appeal of this lightly circulated early-series Indian eagle. A few minor contact marks are present, the worst being a thin scratch in the left obverse field, near star 2.(#8864)

Ms64+ 1909-s Indian ten rare any Finer

4147 1907 no Periods Ms66 PCGs. CaC. Like the more famous High Relief double eagles of 1907, Saint-Gaudens initial design for the ten dollar gold piece had to be modified to make large-scale production practical. The result was the beautiful No Periods design, which was immediately popular with the public, being the first version of the design released into general circulation. While many examples were saved at the time of issue, few survivors have been preserved in Premium Gem condition. This delightful specimen is well-detailed, with just a touch of the usual softness on Libertys hair, and the attractive greenish-gold surfaces are remarkably free of distractions. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 81 in 66, 7 finer (1/12). (#8852) 4148 1908-D Motto Ms61 nGC. Wisps of green and pink overtones reside on the frosty yellow-gold surfaces of this fully brilliant specimen. Trivial grade-consistent marks are inconsequential. (#8860)

4151 1909-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. The 1909-S is much scarcer than its mintage implies. Most of the production went into West Coast circulation, since PCGS has graded pieces as low as Fine 12. In fact, a majority of certified examples are in grades less than Mint State. The present Choice caramel-gold representative is sharply struck and unabraded with a few flecks of struck-in grease (as coined) near the eagles back leg. Population: 4 in 64+, 25 finer (2/12). (#8864) 4152 1910-s aU58 nGC. The 1910-S Indian eagle is more difficult to locate than its large mintage would indicate, especially in Mint State grades. This lightly circulated example retains much original mint luster and design detail and shows only minor signs of contact. (#8867) 4153 1910-s aU58 PCGs. A trace of wear appears on the high points of this pleasing near-Mint specimen. Despite a substantial mintage, higher grade examples are scarce. This piece has nearly full luster with frosty yellow surfaces and minimal marks.(#8867)

4154 1911 Ms64 PCGs. An impressive Choice Mint State piece, only 90 finer 1911 eagles reside in PCGS holders (2/12). This splendid specimen has brilliant and frosty orange-gold luster with virtually mark-free surfaces.(#8868) 4155 1911 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. Strong yellow-gold luster with orange overtones on each side, bolder on the reverse. A well-defined piece and decidedly appealing. PCGS has graded 90 finer examples (2/12).(#8868) 4156 1911-D aU55 nGC. Considerable satin luster is evident on each side of this light yellow Choice AU specimen. A low mintage of 30,100 pieces explains the scarcity of the date. The Denver Mint produced few smaller gold pieces in 1911.(#8869) 4157 1912 Ms64 nGC. Subdued but still frosty wheat-gold surfaces host several trivial copper toning spots on each side of this lovely Choice Mint State 1912 eagle.(#8871)

Gorgeous Ms64+ 1912-s ten Dollar

Gem 1912 eagle Only 10 Finer Coins at PCGs

4158 1912 Ms65 PCGs. Despite the substantial mintage of 405,000 pieces, the 1912 Indian eagle is very scarce at the Gem level. This well-detailed Gem shows just a touch of softness on Libertys hair, and the attractive orange-gold surfaces are brightly lustrous. Population: 26 in 65, 10 finer (2/12). (#8871) 4159 1912-s Ms61 nGC. The 1912-S Indian eagle is one of the most difficult dates of the series to locate in high grade. This welldetailed MS61 example displays lustrous orange-gold surfaces, with highlights of green and rose.(#8872) 4160 1912-s Ms61 PCGs. Myriad surface marks account for the lower numerical grade of this lustrous Mint State Indian ten. Splashes of dark patina and a few noticeable marks appear on each side. Although 300,000 of these were minted, relatively few have survived in better grades.(#8872)

4161 1912-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. The 1912-S issues mintage of 300,000 pieces is neutral in Saint-Gaudens eagle terms, neither type coin material nor a rarity on the order of other mintmarked dates. Its condition rarity, by contrast, is unambiguous beyond a plain MS64 designation, as MS64+ and better coins are highly elusive. This is one such coin, slightly dusky but warmly lustrous with a distinctly orange cast to the surfaces. A single abrasion at up and to the right from the corner of Libertys mouth is the sole mentionable flaw; without it, this coin would be a no-questions Gem. Population: 14 in 64+, 9 finer (1/12). (#8872)

Gleaming Lemon-yellow 1913-s ten, aU58

4162 1913-s aU58 nGC. Thanks to a low mintage of just 66,000 pieces, the 1913-S ten dollar attracts considerable collector attention, and any Mint State coin is scarce. This gleaming lemonyellow near-Mint coin makes for a solid alternative, and its actual high-point wear is minimal, though a few scrapes are present, most notably to the left of the date and just off the eagles left (facing) wing. (#8874)

Gem 1914-D Indian eagle rare Issue in any Finer Grade

4164 1914-D Ms65 nGC. From a mintage of 343,500 pieces, the 1914D Indian eagle is not too difficult to locate in lower Mint State grades, but the issue is very scarce as a Gem, and quite rare in any finer grade. The coin offered here is a spectacular Gem specimen, with vibrant frosty mint luster, and attractive greenish-gold surfaces that show highlights of rose color. Like most examples seen, this coin displays razor-sharp definition on all design elements, but there is a small area of roughness in the lower left obverse field, near the date. Census: 39 in 65, 18 finer (2/12). (#8876) 4165 1914-s Ms61 nGC. Splashes of deep greenish verdigris appear on both surfaces of this S-Mint Indian eagle. Frosty underlying luster is visible with bright yellow shining through.(#8877) 4166 1915 Ms63 nGC. A few trivial marks prevent a higher grade. This lustrous Select Mint State Indian ten has frosty yellow brilliance with faint orange overtones.(#8878)

4167 1916-s Ms64 PCGs. The 1916-S enjoys considerable fame within the ten dollar Saint-Gaudens series. It is a moderate rarity, in both absolute and conditional terms, that made its reputation between the 1930s and 1960s, when it was largely unavailable, before the emergence of two hoards in the 1970s that made it the last accessible San Francisco issue of the classic eagle denomination. This lovely near-Gem has reddish-gold color with subtle hints of lilac interspersed over the satin-frosted surfaces. Several small- to medium-sized marks scattered over each side account for the grade, but none are worthy of individual mention. Population: 34 in 64, 20 finer (1/12). Ex: The Little Rock Collection, Part Two (Heritage, 7/2011), lot 4996. (#8880) 4168 1926 Ms64 nGC. This well-struck Choice 1926 Indian eagle shows only minor signs of contact, and the lustrous orangegold surfaces are accented by highlights of rose and lilac color. (#8882) 4169 1926 Ms64 nGC. A stunning example of the plentiful 1926 Indian ten with frosty yellow luster. Lovely rose and green overtones on each side heighten its eye appeal.(#8882) 4170 1926 Ms64 nGC. An amazing and appealing specimen, this Choice Mint State Indian ten is ideal for a type collection, with frosty lemon-yellow luster and exceptional surfaces, showing only trivial marks.(#8882) 4171 1926 Ms64 PCGs. CaC. Wisps of green and rose appear on the brilliant yellow-gold surfaces of this frosty and highly lustrous Indian eagle. An excellent type candidate.(#8882)

4172 1932 Ms65+ nGC. CaC. Softly struck but beautifully lustrous with delicate frosty elements across apricot-gold surfaces. The grade comes mostly from tiny luster grazes, though a few deeper marks appear at the bottom right part of the eagle. An excellent example of the last readily collectible classic ten dollar coin, ideal for a highquality type set. (#8884)

4175 1850 aU58 nGC. An attractive example of this popular first-year 1850 double eagle, displaying partial prooflikeness in the fields within the protected areas. Yellow-gold surfaces exhibit well struck design elements and reveal the distributed marks one would expect on a large gold coin that saw brief circulation. (#8902)

1932 ten Dollar, Ms66 exceptionally Clean and Lustrous

near-Mint 1850 Double eagle Landmark of U. s. Coinage

4173 1932 Ms66 PCGs. The 1932 Indian eagle is the most available issue of the series, and even Premium Gem examples can only be called scarce, making this date ideal for type collectors. This memorable Premium Gem is sharply detailed on the obverse, but the eagles leg shows a little softness. The almost-unmarked surfaces display vibrant mint luster with outstanding eye appeal. Population: 89 in 66, 1 finer (1/12). (#8884)

4176 1850 aU58 PCGs. This near-Mint double eagle displays yellowgold patination over both sides, along with traces of luster in the recessed areas. Strong detailing is seen over the design elements, including strong star centers. The few scattered marks that are seen are consistent with brief circulation. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 3252. (#8902)

4174 1850 aU53 nGC. The double eagle denomination circulated for the first time in 1850 and proved to be quite useful in economic channels of that era. Most examples seen are heavily circulated, but this attractive AU53 specimen shows lightly worn design elements and minimally abraded surfaces. Much original mint luster remains intact. (#8902)

4177 1850-O XF40 nGC. Variety 2. A better variety for this introductory New Orleans issue. Most 50-O twenties show the mintmark lightly touching the tail, but the mintmark is well centered on the present piece. The straw-gold surfaces are luminous and only minimally abraded. Moderate wear on the hair and wingtips corresponds to the XF level. (#8903)

4178 1850-O XF45 nGC. Variety 3. This Choice XF representative offers uncommonly strong detail on most of the stars, though those just to the left of the date are a trifle soft. Light, even wear across the devices has left a degree of luster in the fields, green-gold on the obverse with a touch of orange on the reverse. A lovely example of this initial New Orleans double eagle issue. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 3266. (#8903)

4180 1851 aU58 nGC. Ex: S.S. Republic. This rotated dies example is pedigreed to the wreck of the S.S. Republic, which sank in Atlantic waters shortly after the Civil War. Unlike the S.S. Central America holdings, which were predominantly 1857-S double eagles, the Republic treasure was diverse over denominations, dates, and mintmarks. The present sun-gold near-Mint twenty has a lustrous reverse and a partly lustrous obverse. Sharply struck and void of mentionable abrasions. (#8904)

4182 1851 aU58 nGC. According to Garrett-Guth, the vast majority of 1851 double eagles did not survive. Of the coins seen today, most are heavily worn. Even the examples salvaged from the S.S. Central America and the S.S. Republic were circulated. The current example shows light wear and minimal distractions, thus providing a reasonable alternative to a much more expensive Uncirculated specimen of this elusive issue. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3712. (#8904) 4179 1850-O aU50 nGC. Variety 2. After gold was discovered in California, two new denominations, the gold dollar and double eagle, were passed into law. While the small presses at Charlotte and Dahlonega were adequate to handle the former denomination, the only Southern gold facility to strike the double eagle was New Orleans, which got its start in 1850. This first-year example, though lightly worn, is remarkably radiant with broadly luminous apricot-to-orange surfaces. Softly struck devices show their share of scattered moderate abrasions, as do the fields, but most of the obverse wear is concentrated on the hair below Libertys coronet. (#8903)

1851-O Double eagle, about Uncirculated Widely Collected new Orleans type Coin

4184 1851-O aU50 nGC. In light of this issues high mintage, Doug Winter writes in his Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint, As one might expect, the 1851-O is the most common New Orleans double eagle in terms of overall rarity. Type collectors are drawn to it as a result, seeking pieces like this lustrous yellow-orange beauty. Modest wear affects the high points, but the fields show only a handful of light to moderate abrasions. Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 12/2008), lot 2386. (#8905)

eye-appealing aU53 1851-O Double eagle

4186 1851-O aU58 nGC. Variety 2. The New Orleans Mint struck double eagles every year from the advent of the denomination through 1861, plus an additional issue in 1879 when the facility re-opened after a gap of nearly a generation. That makes a total of 13 dates of O-mint twenties, but a majority of those issues are low mintage rarities, which focuses demand on more obtainable dates. Thus the popularity of the 1851-O, a frequent target for collectors assembling type sets from the Southern facility. The typically encountered example is abraded and grades XF to AU, but the present Borderline Uncirculated piece is nicer. No marks are noticeable, and the sun-gold devices display substantial glimpses of bright mint luster. (#8905)

near-Mint 1852 Double eagle Popular type One Issue


4185 1851-O aU53 nGC. Variety 1. Luster brightens the legends and motifs of this sun-gold and olive-gray early double eagle. Most circulated twenties are abraded due to a large diameter and soft alloy, but the present piece is surprisingly void of blemishes and has attractive eye appeal. The advent of the U.S. Assay Office in San Francisco undoubtedly diminished the influx of gold bullion to New Orleans. (#8905)

4187 1852 aU58 nGC. The 1852 Liberty double eagle is an available date that enjoys great popularity with type collectors seeking an example of the Type One design. This attractive Near-Mint specimen displays lustrous orange-gold surfaces, with highlights of rose color and only minor abrasions.. (#8906)

Only a hint of friction affects the high points, and a handful of shallow abrasions to the left of Libertys neck have little effect on the grade. Ex:: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 3257. (#8906)

4191 1852-O aU50 PCGs. Luminous yellow-gold surfaces show undercurrents of orange. The softly struck devices show modest wear across the high points and a scattering of abrasions. Overall eye appeal is solid for this challenging O-mint double eagle issue, which is elusive despite a substantial six-figure mintage. Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 12/2008), lot 2391. (#8907)

1852 Double eagle, Ms61 S.S. Republic, Doubled Date

near-Mint 1853 Liberty Double eagle Bright remaining Luster

4189 1852 Ms61 nGC. CaC. All four digits in the date show evidence of repunching, most easily seen at the top of each numeral. This delightful MS61 specimen traces its history to the wreck of the S.S. Republic. The design elements are well-detailed, and the lustrous surfaces show only minor signs of contact, with considerable eye appeal for the grade. Like most Type One double eagles, the 1852 is seldom encountered in Mint State condition and NGC has certified only 36 coins in higher numeric grades (1/12). (#8906)

4192 1853 aU58 nGC. Though close examination reveals modest wear across the high points of the well-defined devices, this nearMint example retains bold, virtually intact luster that cartwheels across lemon-yellow surfaces. Both sides show scattered abrasions, and the obverse has a medium-sized scrape in the hair just below the coronet. NGC has graded just 46 examples of the issue as Mint State (1/12). (#8908)

Popular 1852-O twenty, XF45

1853 twenty Dollar, aU58 amply Lustrous

4190 1852-O XF45 nGC. A honey-gold Choice XF New Orleans representative. Rose-tinged luster emerges from central device recesses. Small marks are scattered but only a small obverse rim ding at 4 oclock merits passing mention. Five different mints struck double eagles, and the O mintmark is the scarcest. (#8907)

4193 1853 aU58 nGC. The base of the 1 is repunched. This briefly circulated Type One twenty has most of its initial luster still remaining on the reverse. The portrait is also lustrous, and a faint halo of luster surrounds individual obverse stars. Unusually free from abrasions apart from a faded thin mark beneath the chin. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3727. (#8908)

semireflective Ms61 1853 Double eagle

repunched small Date 1854 twenty Borderline Uncirculated

4194 1853 Ms61 nGC. This sharply struck Philadelphia twenty has unusual luster for the time, semireflective and stark with the slightest apricot tinge against saturated yellow-gold. While a number of light ticks are scattered across the obverse, the reverse is comparatively clean, and the overall eye appeal is better than the MS61 grade might suggest. Census: 16 in 61, 19 finer (2/12). (#8908)

1853-O Double eagle, aU50 Probably California Gold

4197 1854 small Date aU58 nGC. CaC. Breen-7167. A honey-gold Borderline Uncirculated No Motto twenty with plentiful luster at the borders and across the reverse design. Light abrasions are distributed though none merit individual mention. The date was initially entered with an upward slope, then repunched in the proper position. Remnants of the first impression are obvious above the 54 and beneath the flag of the 1. (#8911)

near-Mint Large Date 1854 twenty Interesting yet Underrated Variant

4195 1853-O aU50 PCGs. CaC. The New Orleans Mint coined 71,000 double eagles in 1853, from gold deposits that were almost entirely California gold. This was a year before the San Francisco Mint opened, at a time when prospectors and financial entities were still sending gold to New Orleans. This piece has the distinctive greenish appearance of California gold, with reflective fields and nearly full luster. Scattered surface marks are present as always, but they are minimal. A highly attractive specimen for an advanced collector. (#8910)

1854 small Date twenty, aU58 Highly Lustrous survivor

4196 1854 small Date aU58 nGC. The yellow-orange surfaces offer virtually intact luster, and the well struck devices show only a trace of friction. A handful of wispy abrasions on and near the portrait have little impact on the overall visual appeal. There are two different date sizes that were used for the 1854. When the date size is not obvious, the Small Date has a good point of reference with repunching on the 1, 5, and 4 in the date. The Small Date is much more frequently seen than its Large Date counterpart. Ex: National Money Show Auction (Heritage, 3/2008), lot 1633. (#8911)

4198 1854 Large Date aU58 nGC. CaC. The 1854 Large Date issue constitutes a small part of the total mintage of 1854 double eagles, 757,899 coins. Perhaps as few as 10% of those coins, according to some estimates, are the scarce Large Date variant. Garrett and Guth make the interesting comment that this is an issue that an astute collector could possibly cherrypick, as many are unaware of its rarity. This near-Mint State coin offers orange-gold color with significant remaining luster, despite a hint of rub in the fields. The strike is sharp throughout, with no obvious or detracting marks. For the variety, Census: 20 in 58, 9 finer (2/12). (#98911)

1854-s twenty, Choice aU Bright type One example

Frosty Ms61 1855 Double eagle

4199 1854-s aU55 PCGs. This Choice AU piece has considerable luster on pale gold surfaces with khaki toning over the high points of the design. It is an excellent representative from the first year of coinage at the fledgling San Francisco Mint, opened in direct response to the gold rush and the associated problems of private coinage in Gold Rush California. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 3279. (#8913)

1855 Liberty twenty, aU55 Conditionally rare in High Grade

4200 1855 aU55 nGC. The surfaces of this Choice AU Liberty twenty are a light orange-gold color, with considerable mint luster, while the design elements are well-detailed, with only minimal signs of wear. The 1855 is not difficult to locate in lower circulated grades, but the issue is a true condition rarity in Mint State. Census: 72 in 55, 84 finer (2/12). (#8914)

Choice aU 1855 twenty Dollar High-Mintage type One Issue

4202 1855 Ms61 PCGs. Though San Francisco absorbed the lions share of California gold after the opening of that citys Mint in 1854, Philadelphia still saw strong demand for gold strikings, especially for larger, export-oriented denominations. More than a third of a million 1855 twenties were produced at Philadelphia, though few of them survive in Mint State. This MS61 coin is among the rare exceptions, moderately abraded but with intact luster that is frosty and pale yellow-gold. The devices are attractively detailed, though a scrape on the hair behind Libertys coronet renders the grade accurate. (#8914)

4201 1855 aU55 nGC. Bright yellow-gold color covers each side with just a hint of reddish patina on this still partially lustrous Choice AU coin. The devices display a strong strike throughout, and each side has numerous small to medium-sized abrasions scattered about, most notably in the fields. Ex: Charlotte National Money Show Signature (Heritage, 3/2007), lot 2161. (#8914)

1855-O twenty, aU55 a type One rarity, Only 8,000 Pieces struck

4203 1855-O aU55 nGC. We are pleased to offer in this lot a

Choice About Uncirculated 1855-O double eagle, the rarest collectible New Orleans twenty dollar. After the first four emissions of double eagles from the New Orleans Mint (in 1850, 1851, 1852, and 1853), there were considerably fewer coins made in 1854, producing a major rarity in the Liberty double eagle series. Then only 8,000 pieces were struck in 1855, and survivors are infrequently seen with only 70 to 80 pieces believed extant today in all grades, with most falling in the Very Fine to Extremely Fine level of preservation (Douglas Winter, Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint, 18391909). Just a handful are known in Choice AU condition with only three Uncirculated coins certified. The surfaces of this lovely AU55 specimen are bright with a confirmed glimmer of semireflectivity in the fields. Except for light high point wear, the design elements are very well defined for a New Orleans issue, including most of Libertys hair, the star centrils (except for star 1), and the eagles plumage. The rich green-gold coloration has taken on a light accent of reddish patina. Minute contact marks are scattered over each side, the only ones of note being a mark that covers the ER in AMERICA and a short dig along the jawline of Liberty. This coin exhibits better overall eye appeal than typically seen for the issue, and should consequently elicit a strong bid. Census: 9 in 55, 5 finer (1/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 3090; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3299. (#8915)

1855-s Double eagle, aU55 Lustrous example

1856 Double eagle, aU55 significant remaining Luster

4204 1855-s aU55 nGC. This Choice AU double eagle from the San Francisco Mint displays well-detailed design elements, with strong mint luster and pleasing green and orange-gold surfaces. Both sides show the expected number of minor abrasions for the grade. The 1855-S claims a mintage of 879,675 pieces, but high-grade examples are scarce in todays market. (#8916)

4207 1856 aU55 nGC. Lightly marked surfaces retain excellent remnants of luster over the rich orange-gold surfaces. The design features are sharply struck. The 1856 twenty was unrepresented in the treasure discoveries of the last couple decades. The majority of coins found were minted at San Francisco rather than Philadelphia. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2010), lot 3882. (#8917)

Choice aU 1855-s twenty an attractive type Piece

1856-s Liberty Double eagle, aU58 From the S.S. Central America era

4205 1855-s aU55 nGC. The mintage of the 1855-S was a hefty 879,675 pieces, making it a logical choice for a Type One twenty, especially in Almost Uncirculated condition. This yellow-gold Choice AU piece is well struck and shows considerable remaining luster. Minor handling marks appear on each side, as do more significant abrasions. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2006), lot 3171; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2009), lot 1744. (#8916)

4208 1856-s aU58 nGC. This near-Mint State coin shows no obvious signs of seawater immersion, even though shipwreck coins of this issue are plentiful. Nearly full mint luster remains, and the surfaces are a lovely apricot-gold. Only slight highpoint rub on Libertys hair and the eagles wing tips separates this piece from Mint State. An appealing and delightful coin. NGC has certified 37 pieces finer (1/12). (#8919)

near-Mint 1855-s Double eagle Only 17 Finer specimens at PCGs

Borderline Uncirculated 1856-s twenty

4206 1855-s aU58 PCGs. The 1855-S Liberty double eagle was a heavily circulated issue and, except for some fortunate shipwreck finds, the date is seldom encountered in high grade. This attractive near-Mint specimen retains much of its original mint luster, with just a few traces of wear on the pleasing orange-gold surfaces. Population: 34 in 58, 17 finer (1/12). (#8916)

4209 1856-s aU58 PCGs. Rich honey-gold luster adorns design elements of this lightly circulated early San Francisco twenty. Well defined and attractive despite the smattering of small marks customary for the near-Mint level. By 1856, the facility had overcome a shorting of parting acids and the West Coast mintage exceeded 1 million double eagles for the first time. (#8919)

Luminous Choice aU 1857 Double eagle

1857-O twenty, aU50 scarce, Overlooked O-Mint Issue

4210 1857 aU55 nGC. A luminous example of the 1857 double eagle, a date long neglected by collectors but now better able to claim its condition rarity thanks to the relative abundance of its S-mint counterpart. Luminous surfaces have pale yellow-gold color at the interiors but deeper amber-to-orange hues along the margins. (#8920)

Choice aU 1857 twenty remarkably Clean and still Lustrous

4211 1857 aU55 nGC. A yellow-gold representative that displays substantial glowing luster around each individual obverse star. The devices and legends display even more remaining mint luster. Each side is refreshingly unmarked for a lightly circulated double eagle. Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 6/2008), lot 2253. (#8920) 4212 1857-O aU50 nGC. The average 1857-O double eagle seen today is only VF or XF. Almost Uncirculated coins are scarce, and Mint State pieces are quite rare; indeed, NGC and PCGS have graded only four Uncirculated coins (2/12). Undoubtedly this early New Orleans twenty was heavily circulated at the time of issue. This AU example displays bright, almost reflective yellow-gold surfaces that possess well-defined design features. Small to mediumsized abrasions are scattered over both sides do not significantly detract from the overall appeal of this scarce O-mint. Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 12/2008), lot 2253. (#8921)

Choice aU 1857-s Double eagle Vivid Color

1857-s Double eagle, Ms64 Ex: S.S. Central America

4213 1857-s aU55 nGC. Before the salvage of the S.S. Central America, the 1857-S double eagle was extremely rare in high grade, and examples in AU55 condition are still slightly scarce. This impressive Choice AU specimen is well-detailed and lustrous, with pleasing greenish-gold surfaces that show the expected number of minor contact marks. (#8922)

4216 1857-s spiked shield Ms64 PCGs. Ex: S.S. Central America. SSCA 1124. Dies 20A, Spiked Shield. This lovely Choice example displays vibrant mint luster and attractive greenish-gold surfaces, with hints of rose and lilac. Only a few minor contact marks can be detected. The design elements are sharply detailed and eye appeal is outstanding. (#70000)

Choice aU 1857-s Double eagle Lightly Circulated but Well-Defined

1858 Liberty twenty, aU55 elusive Philadelphia Issue

4214 1857-s aU55 PCGs. This lightly circulated 1857-S Liberty double eagle displays just a touch of actual wear on the welldetailed design elements, and the fields show only minor signs of contact. The surfaces are a pleasing yellow-gold color, with highlights of green and rose, and much original mint luster remains intact. (#8922)

4217 1858 aU55 nGC. The 1858 Liberty double eagle is a scarce issue in AU grades, from a relatively small mintage of 211,714 pieces. This attractive Choice AU piece displays well-detailed design elements, with just a trace of actual wear, and lightly abraded yellow and orange-gold surfaces. Mint luster and eye appeal are both strong for the grade. (#8923)

near-Mint 1857-s Double eagle Variety 20-F, right s

1858 type One Double eagle Bright, Golden-Orange aU example

4215 1857-s aU58 PCGs. CaC. Whenever a nice 1857-S appears at auction, the natural question is, did it come from the S.S. Central America shipwreck? It is possible, since the present piece is from known SSCA dies, specifically the the No Serif, Right S Variety 20F, as described by Robert Evans in the July 2000 issue of the ANA journal Numismatist. Regardless of its provenance, this is a sharply struck and lustrous near-Mint Type Two twenty whose peach-gold surfaces are clean save for wispy obverse abrasions between stars 8 and 9. (#8922)

4218 1858 aU55 nGC. This well-struck, golden-orange Type One is one of the more available pre-War dates available from the Philadelphia Mint. As such it is often used for type purposes. The surfaces display much brightness and the devices show light wear and scattered handling marks in the fields. Ex: National Money Show Signature (Heritage, 3/2007), lot 432. (#8923)

1858-O twenty, almost Uncirculated Low-Mintage new Orleans Date

aU 1858-s Liberty twenty rare in Mint state Grades

4220 1858-s aU50 PCGs. CaC. Unlike some other dates from the 1850s, the 1858-S Liberty double eagle was not heavily represented in recent shipwreck finds, and the issue is seldom encountered in high grade. This pleasing AU50 specimen features yellow and orange-gold surfaces that retain much of their original mint luster, despite the usual number of minor abrasions on both sides. (#8925)

Choice aU 1858-s twenty Bright surfaces

4219 1858-O aU50 PCGs. Although the San Francisco Mint was producing tremendous quantities of double eagles in the 1850s, the New Orleans Mint struck relatively small numbers. In this particular instance, the 1858-O had a mintage of just 35,250 pieces, most of which saw extensive circulation. Few New Orleans coins were intentionally set aside by collectors of the day. The resplendent surfaces of this pale yellow specimen have no noteworthy marks. The first two stars lack definition, but the rest of the details are crisp. Population: 19 in 50, 37 finer (1/12). Ex: Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 2693. (#8924)

4221 1858-s aU55 nGC. This Choice AU 1858-S Liberty double eagle displays only slight traces of wear on the high points of the design elements and the fields show only a moderate number of abrasions for the grade. The light yellow and greenish-gold surfaces are brightly lustrous and problem-free. (#8925)

near-Mint 1858-s Double eagle Vivid Color

4222 1858-s aU58 nGC. The 1858-S Liberty twenty was minted too late to be preserved on the wreck of the S.S. Central America, and most examples seen are in heavily circulated condition. This attractive near-Mint example shows only the slightest wear on the well-detailed design elements, and the lightly abraded surfaces retain most of their original mint luster. The orange-gold surfaces display highlights of lilac. (#8925)

1859-O Double eagle, aU50 Possibly Pikes Peak Gold

aU53 1859-s twenty Dollar

4224 1859-s aU53 nGC. Pockets of bright luster emerge throughout this moderately marked sun-gold Type Two San Francisco double eagle. The only mentionable contact is on the field beneath the hairbun. Unlike the 1857-S, the 1859-S remains rare in Mint State although XF and AU examples are affordable for the collector. (#8928)

1859-s twenty, Choice aU Pleasing reddish-Gold surfaces

4223 1859-O aU50 PCGs. Gold deposits at the New Orleans Mint reached their peak in 1851 through 1853, and were extremely limited in the later 1850s. Records show that just 168 deposits of gold were made at that Mint in 1859, including 43 in the first quarter, 42 in the second quarter, 26 in the third quarter, and 57 in the fourth quarter. The third quarter was lowest due to the peak of summer when business activities were limited due to the desire of most wealthy citizens to escape the New Orleans humidity. Gold deposit records for New Orleans during the 1850s are available at the Fort Worth, Texas, branch of the National Archives. A review of records from November and December 1859 yields the fascinating information that Pikes Peaks Dust was among the gold deposited at New Orleans. A lone die pair was used for production of 9,100 coins. This lovely AU specimen has light greenish-gold surfaces with hints of copperyrose toning on each side. Considerable luster is still visible, especially in the protected areas. Population: 9 in 50, 17 finer (2/12). Ex: Bowers and Merena (8/2010), lot 1831. (#8927)

4225 1859-s aU55 nGC. The 1859-S twenty, with a business strike mintage of more than 600,000 pieces, is typically found in XF and AU. Like most coins of this era, the 1859-S is very rare in Mint State. This Choice AU coin displays traces of luster in the recesses of the reddish-gold surfaces. Its design features are well brought up, though portions of Libertys hair are soft. A few of the expected bag marks are visible, especially on the obverse. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 1947; Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1978. (#8928)

1860 Double eagle, aU58 a Mint state rarity

4226 1860 aU58 nGC. This well struck near-Mint piece has ample luster, and the reverse even retains a bit of flash. Light handling marks affect the fields, and minor friction is noted on the highpoints of the obverse. NGC has only certified 57 Mint State examples of this issue. (#8929)

Lustrous near-Mint 1860 twenty Deep Orange-Gold Patina

satiny aU55 1860-s Double eagle

4227 1860 aU58 nGC. The orange-gold surfaces of this near-Mint beauty have virtually intact luster. The strike is well brought up overall, though Libertys hair shows a degree of softness. NGC has graded only 51 finer pieces (1/12). Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3748. (#8929)

4229 1860-s aU55 nGC. An impressive and partly lustrous Choice AU example. The almond-gold fields and devices are free from any distracting abrasions. The wingtips and shoulder curls display slight wear, but a desirable piece due to the rarity of Uncirculated survivors. Ex: Stacks (6/1983), lot 738; Richard J. Chouinard Collection (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 9513. (#8931)

1860-O Choice XF twenty Only 6,600 Pieces struck

1860-s twenty Dollar, aU55 seldom Located in this Condition

4230 1860-s aU55 nGC. Seldom seen in high circulated grades and rare in Mint State, despite the considerable mintage of more than a half-million pieces. Most examples circulated heavily, and the average grade of survivors is only Choice XF or slightly higher. This Choice AU piece is at the top end of circulated specimens numerically and aesthetically, with few abrasions, large or small, noted on the surfaces. The coloration is a glorious hazel and peachgold. A nice one! Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3750. (#8931)

4228 1860-O XF45 nGC. Liberty double eagles were struck at five facilities, Philadelphia, New Orleans, San Francisco, Carson City, and Denver. From those five mints, New Orleans pieces are scarcest. Although the Southern facility struck double eagles every year from the advent of the denomination until the start of the Civil War and briefly resumed twenty dollar coinage in 1879, mintages were invariably low, and peaked early with the 1850 to 1853 emissions. The 1860 O-mint production was just 6,600 pieces, the lowest production between 1857 and 1861. Unsurprisingly, 1860-O survivors are rare in all grades, and only a single MS62 has been certified as Mint State. The present yellow-gold example has seen only moderate circulation, and retains luster within design recesses. Marks are unexpectedly minor, and any bluntness of strike is limited to the first three obverse stars. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3571. (#8930)

1861 Liberty twenty, aU58 Popular Civil War era type Coin

1861-s Double eagle, aU58 scarcer s-Mint in aU

4231 1861 aU58 nGC. Nearly 3 million Liberty double eagles were struck in 1861, during the first year of the Civil War. The 1861 enjoys great popularity with type collectors seeking an example of the Type One design. This delightful near-Mint specimen displays vibrant mint luster and the well-detailed devices show only a trace of wear. The surfaces are remarkably free of abrasions and eye appeal is quite strong. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity on Pine Tree letterhead and signed by Walter Breen, describing the coin as, AU and lustrous. Less than normal bag marks. Only the faintest trace of friction between this and full mint state. Ex: Suburban Washington, DC/EAC Auction (Pine Tree, 2-3/1976), lot 1662. (#8932)

4234 1861-s aU58 nGC. Pleasingly detailed for an S-mint issue of the era, though the portrait shows typically soft definition on the hair. Light, scattered luster grazes on each side have little impact on the eye appeal, and only a hint of friction is noted over the central devices. Highly elusive any finer, with only 12 such pieces certified by NGC (1/12). Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3759. (#8935)

Luminous Choice XF 1862 twenty

Warmly Lustrous aU58 1861 Double eagle

4232 1861 aU58 nGC. CaC. Yellow-orange luster is generous and broad on this 1861 double eagle, part of a high-mintage Philadelphia date that is plentiful in most grades. While the 1857-S is the premier type issue for Mint State collectors, those who prefer lightly circulated coins will find much to love about this modestly worn but well-defined near-Mint representative. Scattered minor abrasions have surprisingly little impact on the eye appeal. (#8932)

4235 1862 XF45 nGC. This Civil War issue is one of the rarest Type One double eagles from the Philadelphia Mint (Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth, 2006). The yellow-gold surfaces of this Choice XF example display traces of luster in the protected areas. Despite light wear, the central devices remain sharply defined, and scattered light marks are grade-appropriate. Census: 16 in 45, 52 finer (2/12). (#8937)

aU55 1861-s Double eagle

4233 1861-s aU55 nGC. Bright luster illuminates design elements of this well struck canary-gold Choice AU twenty. Generally only lightly abraded, though we note a few thin marks on the upper left obverse field. As is the case with most other San Francisco issues from the decade, the 61-S is collectible in XF and AU but is rare in Mint State. (#8935)

1862 twenty, Choice aU scarce From Wartime Hoarding and export

Luminous aU53 1862-s twenty

4237 1862-s aU53 nGC. A luminous example of this heavily used Civil War-era San Francisco issue, primarily yellow-orange with significant lavender-to-violet influences along the margins. The strike is typically weak through the centers and on peripheral elements such as the stars, exaggerating the actual wear present on the coin. (#8938)

Choice aU 1862-s Double eagle Popular Civil War era Issue

4236 1862 aU55 nGC. This issue is surprisingly scarce, and seldom found in any grade better than XF. Even the S.S. Republic treasure, which included examples of nearly every date in the Type One double eagle series, only contained eight examples of this date. The combination of low production (only 92,133 were minted) and extensive hoarding and melting of precious metals during the Civil War resulted in the rarity of this issue. Many additional pieces found their way to Europe in exchange for needed supplies during the War years. Currency issued by either government, the United States or the Confederate States, was undesirable as the outcome of the War was not known, thus gold and silver was expected in payment. This Choice AU example is a highly appealing representative of the issue. Although the surfaces are moderately abraded, as usually found, the strike is excellent and the color is attractive. Both sides have nearly full satin luster with rich yellow-gold coloration and highlights of pink toning. Winter and Crum offered some advice regarding this issue (in 2002): Many collectors are still not aware of just how rare this coin is. After the widespread release of this book, they will. Buy any nice 1862 double eagles you are offered and do not be afraid to pay in excess of current published values. Ex: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 5631; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2009), lot 1779. (#8937)

4238 1862-s aU55 nGC. Only a touch of actual wear is apparent on the design elements, but there is evidence of flatness on the left obverse stars and Libertys hair is a little soft. The attractive surfaces are a light yellow-gold color, with highlights of orange and rose. The surfaces retain much original mint luster and only minor abrasions are present. (#8938)

1863 type One twenty, aU55 Generally Unavailable Issue

4239 1863 aU55 nGC. Well struck with flashy, semiprooflike fields and appealing green-gold and rose patina. Though the fields display a number of minor abrasions, only a trace of wear crosses the devices. Overall, a solid example of this surprisingly unavailable Civil War-era issue. Census: 44 in 55, 55 finer (2/12). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2007), lot 4923; Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 6/2008), lot 2274. (#8939)

small s 1863-s twenty Dollar, aU53 elusive Mintmark Variety

scarce 1864-s twenty, aU53

4240 1863-s aU53 nGC. Breen-7217. Small S mintmark, introduced in 1863 and designated as rare by Breen in his 1988 Encyclopedia. A majority of 1863-S twenties possess the Medium S in use since 1855. The present piece has original surfaces with peach-gold luster in protected areas. A smattering of small marks fail to deny the eye appeal. (#8940)

4243 1864-s aU53 nGC. An original butter-gold representative of this Civil War San Francisco issue. Luster is plentiful on the reverse and illuminates the hair and individual obverse stars. Although minor marks are distributed with a majority on the obverse, no abrasions pose a singular distraction. (#8942)

1864 Double eagle, aU53

aU55 1864-s Double eagle ample Bright Luster

4241 1864 aU53 nGC. Considerable luster remains on this yelloworange double eagle, which also has a touch of reflectivity in the obverse fields. Light copper spots are present on each side, and a pair of abrasions are noted on the cheek. Discovery of the S.S. Brother Jonathan and S.S. Republic treasures brought many Civil War double eagles to the market. However, nearly all of those coins are now in strong collections, unlikely to become available anytime soon. (#8941)

4244 1864-s aU55 nGC. An olive-gold representative with surprisingly few bagmarks for a Choice AU double eagle. Nicely struck with partial mint luster and interesting clash marks from the rays behind Libertys neck. A few wispy hairlines on each side fail to negate the eye appeal. (#8942)

Borderline Uncirculated 1864-s Double eagle Commercially Important Civil War Issue

1864 type two twenty, near-Mint Heavily Melted Issue

4242 1864 aU58 nGC. An impressive example of the elusive 1864 double eagle that survived the hoarding activities during and after the Civil War. Perhaps some 19th century coin collector set this piece aside for todays collectors. The surfaces are almost fully lustrous with rich orange-gold patina. NGC has only certified eight finer examples. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2008), lot 4081. (#8941)

4245 1864-s aU58 nGC. CaC. San Francisco double eagle mintages were typically quite large during the Civil War, as the big gold coins were useful instruments of commerce in a wartime economy that often called for large cash transactions. The 1864-S circulated liberally, and few examples are seen at the AU58 level. This attractive near-Mint specimen shows a touch of softness on the obverse stars, but the lustrous orange-gold surfaces are minimally abraded for the grade. (#8942)

Choice aU 1865-s twenty small s, repunched Date

1866-s no Motto twenty, Choice XF Famous Low-Mintage s-Mint rarity

4246 1865-s aU55 nGC. Small S, one of two mintmark sizes known for the issue. The date is lightly repunched, visible on the upper half of the 186 digits. Luster dominates design recesses, and the honey-gold surfaces are well impressed and lack any individually obtrusive abrasions. (#8944)

Choice aU 1865-s Double eagle elusive Medium s Mintmark

4247 1865-s aU55 nGC. CaC. Medium S, and scarce as such. Presumably struck using a leftover reverse die received in 1863 or earlier. In his 1988 Encyclopedia, Breen lists only a Small S variety. This apricot-gold Choice AU Type One twenty offers plentiful luster and the reverse is only lightly abraded, though the obverse displays distributed marks. (#8944)

1865-s Liberty Double eagle, Ms62 Final Civil War Issue

4249 1866-s no Motto XF45 nGC. The approximate mintage of this issue is 12,000 pieces, all of which were delivered in February 1866. After the 1861-S Paquet Reverse, the 1866-S No Motto is the rarest San Francisco Mint Type One double eagle. Only a couple of dozen AU coins are extant (and we suspect numerous resubmissions are in the population data), and NGC and PCGS have certified only six Mint State pieces (2/12). Despite 15 points of wear, the present example retains sufficiently bold definition for the type. The reverse eagle appears to be sharper than Libertys portrait on the obverse, particularly toward the center, and both sides display even coppergold color. A number of moderate abrasions are scattered about. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2006), lot 3704. (#8945) 4250 1866 XF45 PCGs. The first year of issue for the Type Two or With Motto design, and this specimen retains considerable luster for its Choice XF grade. Both sides are light yellow with honey-gold rims. Minor marks are noted, but none are of any consequence. (#8949)

4248 1865-s Ms62 PCGs. This sharply detailed MS62 example exhibits bold detail on the obverse stars and Libertys curls. The surprisingly smooth orange-gold surfaces display strong highlights of rose, with vibrant mint luster. An extensive network of die cracks is evident in the legend and denomination on the reverse. (#8944)

1866 Motto twenty, aU55 First-year type two Issue

Choice aU 1867-s twenty Popular type two Issue

4251 1866 aU55 nGC. Surprisingly lustrous for a Choice AU example, with friction that is consistent for the grade. A small amount of grease was struck into the coin: below and onto the lower parts of the second S in STATES, on the upper reverse. This is the first Type Two double eagle issue from the Philadelphia Mint, with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added to the reverse. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2008), lot 2339. (#8949)

1866-s Motto twenty, aU53 First type two Double eagle

4254 1867-s aU55 nGC. The focus of gold coinage at the San Francisco Mint in 1867 was clearly on the double eagle, produced many multiples of the quarter eagle, half eagle, or eagle. Despite the double eagle mintage exceeding 900,000 pieces, however, while some of the smaller gold 1867-S issues are unknown in Mint State, the 1867-S twenties are merely very rare in Mint State. As of (2/12) only 34 coins at both services were graded MS60 or finer. This Choice AU example boasts lovely deep orange-gold coloration, with a relative absence of singular abrasions. The strike is somewhat soft, but much appeal is present. (#8952)

1868-s Double eagle, aU55+ Post-treasure era

4252 1866-s Motto aU53 PCGs. Ample pleasing luster remains on the vibrant yellow-gold surfaces of this well struck piece, a representative of the first San Francisco Type Two double eagle. Light wear appears across the moderately abraded central devices. Solid overall eye appeal despite its flaws. PCGS has graded 78 finer pieces (1/12). (#8950)

1867 twenty Dollar, Ms61 scarce any Finer

4255 1868-s aU55+ PCGs. The 1868-S Liberty double eagle is easy to locate in lower grades, but high-end Choice AU specimens are elusive. None have been located in treasures from ships that sunk years before this piece was struck. This well-detailed example displays lightly abraded yellow and rose-gold surfaces, with highlights of green and original frosty mint luster. Population: 1 in 55+, 70 finer (1/12). (#8954)

1869 twenty, Choice aU scarcer type two Issue

4253 1867 Ms61 PCGs. This is about the best Mint State grade most collectors can hope to obtain, for anything finer is rare. The orangegold surfaces possess nearly full luster, and exhibit well struck design features. Light contact marks are scattered about, slightly more so on the obverse. Population: 90 in 61, 35 finer (1/12). Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2008), lot 2341. (#8951)

4256 1869 aU55 nGC. The 1869 is an intermediate rarity in the Type Two series that is scarce in AU condition and rare in Mint State. This is a sharply struck piece that retains generous amounts of original mint luster. The surfaces display rich orange-gold coloration with ample remaining luster. A few small abrasions are present, mostly on the obverse, as one would expect for a large gold coin in this grade. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2006), lot 4080; Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 6/2008), lot 2292. (#8955)

Choice aU 1870 Double eagle surprisingly scarce

1871-CC twenty, XF40 scarce early Carson City Issue

4257 1870 aU55 nGC. Both sides of this Choice AU double eagle display bright yellow-gold surfaces that retain a good amount of luster in the recessed areas. Except for areas of high-point wear, the design elements exhibit relatively sharp detail. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006) contend that the 1850 is surprisingly scarce in all grades. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 5728. (#8957)

Uncirculated 1870-s Double eagle

4258 1870-s Ms60 nGC. Luster fills the reverse and outlines obverse design elements. A good strike despite slight blending on the star radials. The cheek and obverse field display marks consistent with the grade. The reverse is minimally abraded aside from a horizontal mark above the eagles head. Census: 14 in 60, 33 finer (2/12). (#8959)

1871 type two twenty, aU55 Bright surfaces

4260 1871-CC XF40 PCGs. As the second rarest Carson City double eagle, the 1871-CC is always in demand by collectors of this popular series. Only 17,387 pieces were produced, and it is reliably estimated that fewer than 150 coins survive in all grades. Carson City gold is a highly popular collecting specialty; examples are always in demand. The present smooth yellow-gold example represents a median grade for the issue. Traces of luster are still visible in protected areas around the devices, and the surfaces are entirely free of consequential marks. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 6357; Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 2025. (#8961)

4259 1871 aU55 nGC. This lower-mintage Choice AU Type Two twenty has no shortage of bright mint luster, especially on the reverse. The open areas are abraded from coin to coin contact, with a thin vertical mark noted on the cheek. A slight obverse rim ding is noted at 6 oclock. Certified in a former generation holder. (#8960)

1872 Uncirculated twenty scarce type in Mint Condition

1873-CC twenty, aU53 Low Mintage, Conditionally scarce

4261 1872 Ms60 PCGs. An unworn example of this popular Type Two double eagle issue, one that sports above-average definition and attractive luster. The surfaces are largely yellow-gold with some deepening to sun-gold near the margins, and a grease stains (as struck) are noted to the left of the date. Population: 31 in 60, 46 finer (1/12). Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 3313. (#8963)

aU 1872-CC Double eagle

4262 1872-CC aU50 nGC. Variety 2-a. This moderately circulated early date Carson City twenty with a partly lustrous reverse and noticeable luster within the date and about individual obverse stars. The pale gold surfaces are minimally abraded for the grade and issue. A scant 26,900 pieces were struck. (#8964) 4263 1873-CC aU53 PCGs. When available the typical 1873-CC double eagle is well worn. It is scarce above XF, and NGC and PCGS combined have certified just over two dozen coins in Mint State (1/12). This piece is far above average, and its bright surfaces display considerable remaining luster, especially on the reverse. There are light to moderate marks peppered across each side, the only one of singular note is a shallow scratch in the field between stars 2 and 3. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 7602; Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 2043. (#8968)

Mint state 1873-CC twenty Dollar Only two Finer at PCGs

4264 1873-CC Ms61 PCGs secure. Variety 1-a. Normal Date.

Coming from a mintage of 22,410 pieces in 1873, this Carson City double eagle is one of a handful of survivors today certified as Mint State. Even though the 1870-CC twenty dollar garners the lions share of attention in auction offerings and references, the 1871-CC through 1873-CC issues are also quite elusive in the higher grades (AU to Mint State). The 1870-CC twenties were produced to the extent of 3,789 pieces, and the mintages for the 1871-CC and 1872-CC increased to 17,387 and 26,900 coins, respectively, before falling back to 22,410 examples of the 1873-CC. All of the 1873-CC double eagles were produced in the Closed 3 or Close 3 style, which preceded the Open 3 format. The Closed 3 style indicates that production occurred early within the year. Rusty Goe writes in The Mint on Carson Street: Gold deposits reached a peak of approximately $5 million at the Carson Mint in 1873. Although gold coin mintages were barely 10% of that total in 1873, large portions of the deposits would not be processed until 1874, when gold coin production increased by 500%.

Goe further points up the fact that although the Carson Mint received only a small share of the gold bullion from the Comstock [Lode], massive volumes of it were shipped to the San Francisco Mint as that facility became known for its double eagle production, and some was also shipped to the Philadelphia Mint. The present coin, certified MS61 by PCGS, is one of four submissions in that grade at PCGS, including possible duplicates, and surpassed by one coin each in MS62 and MS63 (2/12). The luster is a bit thin but nonetheless complete in the obverse fields, with original orange-gold surfaces throughout both sides. The numerous small abrasions that dot each side explain the grade, but none of them merit individual mention. This coin may represent one of the nicest obtainable examples, as so few surpass it at PCGS. (#8968)

Borderline Uncirculated 1873-s twenty Better Open 3 Variety

1874-CC twenty, Choice aU Popular Carson City type Coin

4265 1873-s Open 3 aU58 PCGs. For the 1873-S, the Open 3 is significantly scarcer than its Closed 3 predecessor, due to the crosscountry journey required for the belated Philadelphia-made Open 3 obverse dies to reach San Francisco. The present nicely struck representative has prominent luster throughout except on the cheek and left obverse field. Abrasions are noticeable on the left obverse though relatively minor elsewhere. (#8979) 4266 1874-CC Genuine PCGs. Variety 4-a. The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been cleaned and has planchet defects. The surfaces are mildly glossy and a few moderate abrasions are distributed. Both sides display narrow laminations streaks, prominent near the earlobe and the right (facing) claw.(#8971) 4267 1874-CC VF35 PCGs. Variety 2-a. A Choice VF peach-gold example of this popular Type Two Carson City issue. The lightly hairlined surfaces display clusters of small marks to the left of Libertys neck and ear.(#8971)

4270 1874-CC aU55 PCGs. Substantial remaining mint luster sweeps the obverse stars and portrait. The reverse has virtually full luster. The scattered marks are unimportant, and fewer in number than is customary for the grade. Small alloy spots are noted at 9 oclock on the obverse and 8 oclock on the reverse. Carson City twenties remain popular for their low mintage and Western heritage. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 5745. (#8971)

1874-s twenty, Ms61 scarce type two Issue With Original surfaces

still-Lustrous Choice XF 1874-CC twenty


4271 1874-s Ms61 PCGs. The 1874-S is a scarce and underrated issue in the Type Two series that is rarely encountered in mint condition. The mint luster on this piece is bright and reddish tinged. The obverse especially is peppered with numerous, gradelimiting abrasions. Sharply struck and original. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 4023. (#8972)

1875 Liberty twenty, Ms62 nice Luster and Color


4268 1874-CC XF45 nGC. Variety 1-a. Though appreciably worn on softly struck devices, this yellow-orange example remains broadly lustrous in semireflective fields. Scattered light marks and a handful of heavier digs are grade-consistent and surprisingly minor in the context of the all-around eye appeal. An important example of this earlier Carson City twenty dollar issue. (#8971)

Choice XF 1874-CC Double eagle


4272 1875 Ms62 PCGs. CaC. The double eagle was the only gold denomination produced in large quantity at the Philadelphia Mint in 1875, and it enjoys some popularity because the other gold issues are so elusive. This impressive MS62 example displays well-detailed devices and lustrous orange and rose-gold surfaces. A scattering of minor contact marks on the obverse explains the grade. (#8973)

4269 1874-CC XF45 nGC. Variety 2-a. Radiant luster outlines the obverse stars and fills the reverse legends. Marks are distributed but of little singular importance, though we note an indentation on the second S in STATES as an identifier. Type Two Carson City twenties have much lower mintages than their San Francisco counterparts. (#8971)
Session Two, Auction #1168 | Friday, March 9, 2012 | 6:00PM ET 175

4273 1875-CC VF35 PCGs. Variety 7-a. Nine different die marriages are known for the 1875-CC despite having less than one-tenth the mintage of its San Francisco cousin. This butter-gold representative has noticeable wear but luster nonetheless emerges from protected areas of the reverse.(#8974)

surprising aU55 1876-CC twenty

1875-CC Double eagle, aU53 Ideal Mintmark type Coin

4274 1875-CC aU53 nGC. CaC. Variety 1-a. The 1875-CC double eagle is one of the most available issues from the Carson City Mint and enjoys great popularity with mintmark type collectors. This attractive AU53 specimen displays well-struck design elements with only minor traces of actual wear. The surfaces are lustrous and lightly abraded. (#8974)

4276 1876-CC aU55 nGC. This lightly circulated example of the popular 1876-CC twenty offers a great balance of quality and eye appeal, thanks to generously reflective yellow-gold fields that take on an orange cast at certain angles to the light. Softly struck with scattered minor abrasions and a handful of digs that are as expected for the grade. The 1876-CC double eagle is among the more available dates, though this Star-designated coin is an unexpected treat. (#8977)

1876-CC twenty, aU58 Popular end-of-type Issue

Popular 1875-CC twenty, aU55

4275 1875-CC aU55 nGC. Variety 6-B. This butter-gold Carson City twenty has substantial luster and a few clusters of closely spaced slender abrasions in the fields. The centers are lightly brought up, but the remainder of the design is clear. The large number of dies in use in 1875, relative to the low mintage, suggests a number of separated small orders throughout the year. (#8974)

4277 1876-CC aU58 PCGs. The 1876-CC is one of the more frequently encountered Carson City double eagles, weighing in with a mintage of 138,441 pieces. Still, it is a worthwhile issue in AU58 condition, and relatively scarce in Uncirculated grades. Just a bit softly struck, the fields display the usual bright semiprooflikeness common to this issue. Numerous small abrasions are scattered over each side, but the only one of any note is an angling scratch in the left obverse field out from star 1. Ex: Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2003), lot 10644; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 4777. (#8977)

1876-s Liberty twenty, Ms62 Vibrant Luster, strong eye appeal

4278 1876-s Ms62 PCGs. CaC. This impressive MS62 Liberty double eagle is well- detailed in most areas, with a touch of softness showing on the lower left obverse stars and Libertys hair. The surfaces are a light yellow-gold color, with highlights of green, and only minor abrasions can be detected. The vibrant mint luster adds to the considerable eye appeal. (#8978)

1877 Liberty twenty, Ms62 Only 19 Coins in Higher Grades at PCGs

near-Mint 1877-CC Double eagle

4279 1877 Ms62 PCGs. The 1877 Liberty double eagle is a scarce issue in MS62, and the date becomes rare in any finer grade. This attractive specimen features well-detailed design elements, with pleasing orange-gold surfaces and vibrant mint luster. PCGS has certified only 19 coins in higher numeric grades (2/12). (#8982)

Choice aU 1877-CC twenty slight semiprooflike Finish

4280 1877-CC aU55 nGC. Sharply defined with frosty surfaces and bright yellow-gold luster on each side. The obverse has a small rim nick near star 1, and the rest of the surfaces are lightly abraded as expected. Glints of prooflike mirrors can still be seen close to the devices. Ex: National Money Show Signature (Heritage, 3/2008), lot 1695. (#8983)

Low-Mintage 1877-CC twenty, aU55

4282 1877-CC aU58 nGC. CaC. Variety 3-a. This is a pleasing Carson City representative with minimal high point wear and no remotely distracting marks. The reverse offers nearly complete cartwheel luster, and luster also dominates the obverse border and Libertys hair. The 1877-CC is rare in Mint State, and most survivors are clustered in XF and AU grades. At least five different die marriages are known for the 77-CC despite a mintage of just 42,565 pieces. The reverse die is distinguished by a high second C in the mintmark, while the date placement differs minutely from Variety 1-A. (#8983)

Lustrous 1877-s Double eagle, Ms62

4281 1877-CC aU55 nGC. CaC. Variety 3-a. This sun-gold Choice AU Carson City twenty has substantial reverse luster and noticeable luster on the obverse. Obverse marks are relatively minor, though the central reverse is moderately abraded and we note a narrow mark above DOLLARS. Ex: Vegas Collection (Heritage, 9/2009), lot 1837, which realized $6,900. (#8983) 4283 1877-s Ms62 PCGs. This first year Type Three double eagle has good luster and a bold strike. Small to moderate marks accompany the obverse while the reverse is impressively unabraded. The typical 77-S grades MS60, technically Uncirculated but thoroughly bagmarked. However, the issue is rare at the MS63 level and is nearly uncollectible any finer. (#8984)

1878-CC Double eagle, aU53 scarce, Underrated Issue

1879-CC twenty, Flashy aU55 Only 10,708 Pieces struck

4284 1878-CC aU53 nGC. Variety 1-a. Double eagle production dropped precipitously in 1878 at the Carson City Mint, to a mere 13,180 pieces. Probably no more than 300-350 examples survive today in all grades. Among Carson City double eagles, only the famous 1870 and 1871 issues can claim to be clearly rarer than the 1878-CC, although the low-mintage 1879-CC is virtually tied with this scarce date in terms of total number of specimens known. The present coin is an impressive AU53 specimen, with just a touch of wear on the boldly detailed design elements. The attractive orange-gold surfaces retain much original mint luster and show only minor signs of contact. Census: 37 in 53, 83 finer (2/12). Ex: Baltimore Auction (Bowers and Merena, 3/2009), lot 3948. (#8986)

4285 1879-CC aU55 nGC. Despite a touch of rub across the high points, this pale straw-gold example retains considerable reflective luster, particularly on the reverse. The strike is strong, and marks are scattered and mostly wispy, though a horizontal abrasion is noted below the 18 in the date. Thanks to its mintage of just 10,708 pieces, the 1879-CC twenty has gained considerable fame among collectors of Old West coinage, and Choice AU and better survivors are particularly prized. NGC shows 56 higher-graded pieces, but this number doubtless includes resubmissions (2/12). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1920. (#8989)

1879-O Liberty Double eagle, aU53 Only type three new Orleans twenty Only 12 Coins Finer at PCGs

4286 1879-O aU53 PCGs. Variety 1. There was a long hiatus

of coining operations at the New Orleans Mint, after its seizure by the Confederacy in 1861. However, the facility was reopened in 1879 because the Bureau of the Mint needed the extra capacity to satisfy the provisions of the BlandAllison Act. Fortunately for present-day collectors, a small mintage of Liberty eagles and double eagles was produced in 1879, along with nearly 3 million silver dollars. The meager mintage of 2,325 double eagles would prove to be the last twenty dollar gold pieces produced at the famous Southern mint, and the only issue that employed the Type Three design. The 1879-O double eagles circulated widely in the 19th century, and few examples were preserved by collectors. Doug Winter estimates the surviving population at 75-85 specimens in all grades, with most survivors seen in the VF-XF range. The 1879-O is the fourth-rarest New Orleans double eagle, trailing such fabulous rarities as the 1854-O and 1856-O, and the only slightly more available 1855-O. The last time Heritage was privileged to offer an example of the 1879-O in AU53 condition was in June 2004, and the PCGS population statistics for AU53 or finer grades are the same today as they were at that time. Population: 5 in 53, 12 finer (1/12). The coin offered here is a sharply detailed AU53 specimen, with fine definition on the strands of Libertys hair. The surfaces retain almost all of the original mint luster, with smooth orange-gold patina that shows a few highlights of rose and lilac. Only minor contact marks are apparent, the worst being some insignificant roller marks on Libertys cheek. This coin should find a home in a fine collection or Registry Set. Ex: Horseshoe Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/2010), lot 1854.

The 1880-S is nearly uncollectible above the MS62 level, since examples were regarded strictly as bullion and loosely stored well into the 20th century. (#8993)

1881 twenty, aU53 First in a string of Low-Mintage rarities

4289 1882-CC Ms61 PCGs. Variety 1-a. By far the rarer of the two known die varieties. The second C is placed lower in the field relative to Variety 1-B. This nicely struck Carson City representative has two different looks. The moderately marked obverse is caramel-gold with cartwheel luster, while the lightly abraded reverse is canary-gold and prooflike. A mintage of fewer than 40,000 pieces ensures the scarcity of the 1882-CC. The issue is collectible in XF and AU grades but is very scarce in Mint State and virtually unobtainable above the MS62 level. Population: 30 in 61, 19 finer (1/12). (#8997)

4288 1881 aU53 PCGs. While other dates such as the 1882 are more infamous, it was the 1881 that began the sequence of low-mintage Philadelphia double eagle issues shortly after the introduction of the Type Three design. Garrett and Guth write: Predictably, the 1881 issue is a major rarity in all grades. It is estimated that fewer than 40 coins are known. This example, though distinctly worn over the high points, retains considerable yellow-orange luster in the protected parts of the fields, which suggests that it spent only a short time in circulation. Well-defined and moderately abraded overall with a shallow arcing scrape at the left obverse but solid allaround eye appeal for the grade. Population: 3 in 53, 7 finer (1/12). (#8994)

4290 1883-CC XF45 nGC. Variety 2-a. The usual die pair for this collectible Carson City issue. A wheat-gold example, lightly abraded overall despite a couple of slender marks on the horizontal shield lines. Glimmers of bright luster are especially plentiful on the reverse.(#8999)

aU55+ 1884-CC Double eagle

1883-CC near-Mint twenty Dollar scarce, In-Demand CC in aU58

4293 1884-CC aU55+ PCGs. CaC. Green-gold and apricot toning embraces this scarce Carson City double eagle. The luster extent is impressive for the Choice AU level, though light abrasions are scattered, including a few small ticks on the face. As of (2/12), this is the only 1884-CC twenty in any grade with a Plus designation from PCGS. (#9001) 4291 1883-CC aU58 PCGs. Apricot-gold luster dominates all but the cheek and open fields. The surfaces show an even strike, attractive deep patina, and are void of mentionable marks. The dies can be identified by spikes within the denticles, at 6:30 on the obverse and 12 oclock on the reverse. The 1883-CC has a mintage of fewer than 60,000 pieces, and near-Mint examples are insufficient to meet demand. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 2351; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 5782. (#8999) 4292 1884-CC VF35 PCGs. Ex: Rainy Day Collection. A pleasing Choice VF representative with original peach and olive toning. No marks are remotely consequential, ample luster glimmers from design recesses, and the few specks of dirt on the reverse appear to be removable with proper conservation.(#9001)

near-Mint 1884-CC twenty Dollar

4294 1884-CC aU58 nGC. This lemon-gold Borderline Uncirculated double eagle has nearly complete luster and a bold strike. Small marks are scattered but cannot deny the eye appeal. In 1884, the San Francisco Mint once again struck more than ten times the number of double eagles than Carson City. (#9001) 4295 1884-s Ms62+ PCGs. Lovely yellow surfaces and fully brilliant, frosty gold luster appear on both sides of this lightly marked Mint State specimen. A relatively plentiful date among Type Three double eagles that is hard to find in higher grades.(#9002)

1885 Double eagle, aU55 One of the Keys to the series, Only 751 struck

4296 1885 aU55 PCGs. The 1885 Liberty Head double eagle

boasts the second lowest business-strike mintage of any double eagle, at 751 pieces. Few examples were saved at the time of issue because most advanced collectors of the era preferred to order proofs from the Mint, rather than save a business strike from circulation. The issue is rare in all grades today, with fewer than 100 examples known. Most examples seen are in AU grades, and Mint State pieces are quite rare. Because the mintage was so small, the dies did not experience much wear, and business-strike coins have reflective, prooflike surfaces. Virtually all early auction appearances of the 1885 double eagle describe the coin offered as a proof, but we suspect many coins were actually prooflike business strikes. For example, the coin offered in the Murdoch Collection (Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge, 7/1903), lot 692 is located in the section of the catalog reserved for proof double eagles, but the cataloger describes the coin as slightly scratched and very fine. As no other 1885 gold proof coins from any denomination are offered in the catalog, it seems unlikely that Murdoch purchased his 1885 double eagle from the Mint as part of a proof set. A more likely scenario is that the coin was a business strike that made its way to Europe in normal channels of foreign trade, and Murdoch acquired it from a bullion broker or pawn shop. When his collection was sold, the British cataloger was fooled by the reflective surface and categorized the coin as a proof. Even in this country, numismatists often confused the proof and business-strike issues of 1885 until recent times. The present coin is an appealing specimen, with the prooflike surfaces always seen on this date. The surfaces are tinted a rich, even reddish color and are lightly abraded for the grade. Two tiny milling marks in the right obverse field serve as pedigree markers. Population: 11 in 55, 17 finer (1/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 2263. (#9003)

aU53 1885-CC twenty Better Carson City Date

richly Patinated 1889-CC twenty, aU55

4297 1885-CC aU53 nGC. The 1885-CC has a much lower mintage than the other Carson City issues from the decade, partly due to the facilitys closure on March 18 of that year. This is honey-gold double eagle with nearly complete luster on the reverse. Luster also glimmers from the date, coronet, and Libertys curls and outlines individual obverse stars. Surface detractions are confined to a tiny obverse rim ding at 9:30 and a few small marks beneath the left (facing) wingtip. Ex: Baltimore Auction (Bowers & Merena, 6/2008), lot 3848, which realized $8,338. (#9004) 4298 1887-s Ms61 nGC. Dark patina resides on the high points of this lemon-yellow and light orange-gold double eagle. Traces of delicate green add to its eye appeal.(#9007)

4301 1889-CC aU55 nGC. CaC. This later Carson City double eagle remains impressively detailed despite minor wear. The surfaces offer instant appeal for collectors who prefer a deep, natural patina. Peach-infused fields show coppery echoes close to the devices in certain areas. A wispy mark through the stars over the portrait is the most visible flaw on an otherwise remarkably well-preserved piece. (#9011)

Choice XF 1890-CC twenty Popular Carson City Issue

satiny Ms62 1889 Double eagle

4302 1890-CC XF45 nGC. Variety 1-a. Pockets of luster are present on both sides and are more extensive on the reverse. Well defined with moderate wear on the high points of the hair and wings. The yellow-gold surfaces display the expected number of small marks and faint hairlines. Certified in a prior generation holder. (#9014) 4299 1889 Ms62 nGC. Rich, satiny orange-gold luster rolls across each side of this charming end-of-decade Philadelphia twenty. Despite a production tally of just 44,000 pieces, the 1889 is available for a price in grades through MS62, though anything finer is a condition rarity. This well-defined example has a number of shallow abrasions through the fields, though their influence on the eye appeal is surprisingly minor. (#9010)

near-Mint 1890-CC Double eagle Later Die state

Choice aU 1889-CC Double eagle Distraction-Free example

4303 1890-CC aU58 nGC. Variety 1-a. Luster brightens all but the cheek and open fields of this lime-green and wheat-gold Carson City example. Marks are minor for the grade except for a slender abrasion beneath STATES. The late die state with lapped rightside tail feathers. Minor die doubling can still be seen on TWENTY and PLURIBUS. (#9014) 4300 1889-CC aU55 nGC. Luster generously outlines individual obverse stars, and bathes Libertys hair and much of the reverse. Slight friction is present on the RTY in LIBERTY and the high points of the curls. Careful rotation beneath a loupe fails to reveal any distractions. A popular low mintage CC-mint issue. Ex: National Money Show Signature (Heritage, 3/2008), lot 1724. (#9011)

still-reflective aU53 1891 twenty

4304 1890-CC aU58 nGC. Variety 1-a. The right side of the tail is lapped, indicative of a late die state of this collectible Carson City variety. A pleasing near-Mint double eagle with virtually complete cartwheel luster and an absence of consequential abrasions. The reverse displays a few wisps of struck-in grease, as coined. (#9014)

near-Mint 1890-CC twenty Dollar

4305 1890-CC aU58 anaCs. Variety 1-a. An early die state with full tail feathers and minor die doubling on PLURIBUS and TWENTY. The cartwheel luster is close to complete, though diminished on the cheek and open obverse field. Well struck and lightly abraded with slight rub on the hair. Housed in an older generation ANACS holder. (#9014)

4306 1891 aU53 nGC. Any discussion of the 1891 double eagles place in U.S. numismatics must begin with its business strike mintage, just 1,390 pieces. (This coins previous auction appearance with another firm, listed below, gives a figure of 1,442 coins, but this tally erroneously includes the 52 proofs of the year.) Modestly rubbed surfaces are pale yellow-gold with considerable remaining reflectivity. Scattered light to moderate digs, including a handful of rim cuts, affect the obverse more heavily, though the decently detailed reverse is attractive for the grade. Census: 2 in 53, 26 finer (2/12). Ex: Bowers and Merena (9/2009), lot 1639. (#9016)

Choice aU 1891-CC Double eagle Challenging Late Date

1892-CC twenty Dollar, XF45 Ex: Rainy Day Collection

4309 1892-CC XF45 PCGs. Ex: Rainy Day Collection. A single die pair comprised the low mintage of 27,265 pieces. This well defined representative possesses hints of prooflike surface on the obverse and displays partial cartwheel luster on the reverse. Splashes of orange-gold toning aid the eye appeal. Abrasions are moderate although we note a pinscratch near the R in AMERICA. (#9020)

Bright near-Mint 1892-CC twenty

4307 1891-CC aU55 nGC. The 1891-CC has the second lowest mintage figure (5,000 pieces) of any double eagle from the Carson City Mint, trailing only the 1870-CC. Despite the small mintage, it is more available in circulated grades than one might expect. The issue is scarce in About Uncirculated, however, and rare in Mint State. The certified population includes only one MS63 and none finer. Mint-green and peach-gold patina covers both sides of this Choice AU specimen, and luster resides in the protected areas. The design elements are well defined, and each side reveals just a few minor surface and rim marks. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 2766. (#9017)

4310 1892-CC aU58 nGC. This Carson City issue is unusual in that it has a higher mintage than its Philadelphia counterpart. Still, survivors remain challenging, particularly in AU and better grades. This attractive near-Mint piece offers excellent definition and carefully preserved surfaces with just a hint of friction on the uppermost design elements. Light haze has settled over the bright yellow-gold fields, suggestive of long-term storage. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3849. (#9020)

1893-CC twenty, aU58 Popular Final-year Issue

Low-Mintage 1892 twenty, aU53 Only 4,400 Pieces struck

4311 1893-CC aU58 nGC. An attractive, well-struck example of this popular, final year of issue for the Carson City mint. The bright, mostly lustrous surfaces show faint green-gold patina as well as an interesting pattern of deep red color on the reverse, where several dark alloy spots can also be seen. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 7470; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2008), lot 3121. (#9023) 4308 1892 aU53 nGC. 1892 half eagles and eagles are plentiful, but East Coast bankers apparently had little use for the double eagle that year. Just 4,400 pieces were struck, and most survivors are in XF or AU grades. The present yellow-gold example retains much of its initial flashy luster, although the surfaces display scattered moderate marks consistent with light circulation. Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 5805. (#9019)

Lustrous Ms62 1893-CC twenty Dollar

Choice 1895-s Double eagle Only seven PCGs Coins in Higher Grade

4314 1895-s Ms64 PCGs. The 1895-S Liberty double eagle can only be called scarce at the MS64 grade level, but Gem examples of this date are very rare. This well-detailed Choice specimen displays vibrant mint luster and attractive orange-gold surfaces, with highlights of lilac. PCGS has graded only seven coins in higher numeric grades (2/12). (#9028)

Gem 1898-s Double eagle Desirable Condition rarity

4312 1893-CC Ms62 PCGs. Variety 2-a. Light orange toning visits this lustrous and well struck double eagle. Surprisingly unabraded for the MS62 level, and perhaps the grade is assigned due to subtle cherry-red toning freckles near the date and the reverse margin. The final year of Carson City coinage witnessed a double eagle mintage of only 18,402 pieces. Despite the low production, the issue is collectible in AU55 and finer grades due to European bank holdings. However, the 93-CC is extremely rare above MS63, with a solitary NGC MS64 noted as the single finest certified. (#9023)

4315 1898-s Ms65 PCGs. The blended olive-green and pumpkin-gold toning is illuminated by coruscating cartwheel luster. Crisply struck and impressively unabraded with a bold strike and good eye appeal. The 98-S is commonplace in AU58 and bagmarked Mint State but becomes rare in the present quality. Population: 90 in 65, 2 finer (2/12). (#9034) 4316 1901 Ms63 nGC. Delicate rose patina appears on the satiny yellow-gold surfaces of this popular issue, representing the opening of the third Philadelphia Mint. The 111,430 coin mintage was the fourth lowest double eagle production from 1894 to 1907. However, the date is still considered common.(#9039)

1902 Double eagle, Ms62 Low-Mintage Philadelphia Issue

Ms64+ 1894-s Double eagle Just One Finer at PCGs

4313 1894-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. Coruscating luster, a bold strike, and olive-gold toning contribute to the eye appeal, but the principal charm of the present near-Gem is its exceptional preservation for the issue. Faint grazes on the cheek and obverse field are all that preclude an even finer classification. Population: 1 in 64+, 1 finer (2/12). (#9026)

4317 1902 Ms62 nGC. The 1902 has an unusually low mintage of 31,140 pieces, less than 5% of the 1904 production. As one might expect, the 1902 is relatively scarce in Mint State, and the finest certified by NGC is pair of MS64 examples. The present coin grades MS62 but has provides unbroken cartwheel luster and the orange-gold surfaces are only moderately abraded. (#9041)

4318 1904 Ms64 nGC. An amazing 1904 Liberty twenty, and an ideal candidate for a gold type set, this piece has sharp design elements with satiny lemon-yellow surfaces and delicate bluish overtones. (#9045) 4319 1904 Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. With a mintage of more than six million coins, the largest of the Liberty double eagle series, the 1904 is the ideal type coin, and this lustrous near-Gem, with its frosty greenish-gold surfaces and full brilliance, is an excellent candidate.(#9045)

4323 1906-s Ms63 nGC. CaC. A brilliant yellow-gold example of this popular date, in demand due to the rarity of 1906 Philadelphia pieces. This Select Mint State specimen exhibits trivial gradeconsistent marks on satin surfaces.(#9051)

Choice 1907-D twenty Dollar

Premium Gem 1904 Double eagle

4324 1907-D Ms64 PCGs. CaC. A lustrous butter-gold Choice Liberty twenty from the second and final year of Denver Mint production for the type. The strike is intricate, and both sides are free from mentionable marks aside from a small tick on Libertys cheek. The reverse is particularly unabraded. (#9053) 4320 1904 Ms66 nGC. Ex: Depression 3 Bag Hoard. Every Liberty twenty collector knows that the 1904 is the most common issue, due to an unprecedented mintage of more than 6.25 million pieces. However, the typical example grades MS62 due to numerous abrasions. The present coin, however, has potent apricot-gold luster, a precise strike, and a pristine reverse. The obverse exhibits only minor surface imperfections. (#9045)

Ms64 1907-s Liberty twenty attractive Preservation

1905 Liberty twenty, Ms62 Low-Mintage 20th Century Issue

4325 1907-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. A Choice peach-gold final-year Liberty twenty with pleasing surfaces and vibrant luster. The strike is crisp and the quality is confirmed by the CAC seal, currently assigned to just 11 pieces in the present grade. One shallow mintmade strike-through noted above the second T in TWENTY. (#9054) 4321 1905 Ms62 PCGs. An attractive MS62 example of this lowmintage date, with the visual appeal of a higher grade. The surfaces of this impressive Liberty double eagle are free of all but the most insignificant contact marks. The vivid greenish-gold surfaces display vibrant mint luster, and the design elements are welldetailed, with a little softness apparent on the coronet. (#9047)

1906 Double eagle, Ms62 scarce Date

4322 1906 Ms62 nGC. The 1906 Liberty double eagle is an elusive date from a low-mintage of 69,596 pieces. This attractive MS62 example displays well-detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster. The surfaces are lightly abraded for the grade and show highlights of green and orange-gold color. (#9049)

1895 Double eagle, Pr64 Deep Cameo stunning, Heavily Contrasted Proof Only 18 to 21 estimated extant in all Grades

4326 1895 Pr64 Deep Cameo PCGs. CaC. In January 1895,

the U.S. government nearly ran out of gold. In A Guide Book of Double Eagle Gold Coins, David Bowers recounts, The gold reserve, intended to be $100,000,000 as a backing for paper money, had dribbled down to the less than 8 millions in available gold coin in the Sub-Treasury of New York. That very day more than $3 million in gold was withdrawn from the SubTreasury in New York for export to Europe. Treasury officials estimated that the reserve would be completely depleted within 48 hours. Facing bankruptcy and depreciated currency, the government turned to a consortium of New York bankers led by J.P. Morgan for relief. Meeting in great secrecy, the financiers agreed to help, and more than $8 million dollars in gold coins was deposited in the Sub-Treasury by February 13,1895. A panic was averted, and the Mint proceeded to coin 1.1 million business strike double eagles in 1895. The acute shortage of gold coins in the governments reserves had a profound effect on priorities at the Mint in 1895. Resources were devoted almost exclusively to business strike coinage. No patterns were produced, and proof coinage of the double eagle was limited to a paltry 51 pieces. Today perhaps half that number survive, with several specimens impounded in institutional collections and many are seen in impaired condition. A search of auction records reveals that Heritage has handled two other 1895 proof twenties in the last decade. The most recent was a PR64 Cameo in February of this year, but certified by NGC, a coin that brought $71,875. Other significant specimens known include the PR65 Garrett/Bass coin and the Gem proof Pittman example. This PR64 Deep Cameo example offers glorious orangegold coloration with premium eye appeal. The primary pedigree markers are a tiny, triangular planchet indentation to the left of the 1 in the date, possibly as produced. A series of near-microscopic, dotlike ticks appear in a straight line before Libertys lower nose and star 4. Another contact mark is noted on the reverse, just below ED. Again, these tiny markers are mentioned only for pedigree purposes. Much more importantly, the strike is expectedly bold, with generous field-device contrast yielding the coveted black-on-gold appearance. The appeal of this stunning rare coin is strictly high-end. Expect a premium bid to win this prize. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 10/2008), lot 2418, as a PCGS PR64 Cameo. (#99111)

4329 1907 High relief, Wire rim Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. Although its high relief made it unsuitable for circulation, 12,367 examples of the Roman Numerals type were struck per President Roosevelts order. Survivors are cherished in all grades, since the issue comes closest to the ideal envisioned by Roosevelt and designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This honeygold example is unabraded and has essentially complete design detail, but the surfaces are slightly glossy and the satin luster is somewhat subdued. A wire rim is present across about two-thirds of the diameter, and is most prominent along the right obverse. (#9135)

Uncirculated Details Wire rim MCMVII High relief twenty

4330 1907 High relief, Wire rim Polished nCs. Unc. Details. A sun-gold example with substantial appeal to the collector. The strike is full aside from minor bluntness on the raised knee and the crest of the eagles front wing. The reverse rim has a subtle ding at 3:30, and the surfaces are mildly glossy from cleaning. Although this rare date twenty has been wiped, to call it Polished may be an overly strict assessment by NCS. (#9135)

4328 1907 High relief, Wire rim aU55 PCGs. For many collectors, a lightly circulated but minimally abraded example of the High Relief double eagle offers the best mix of budget-friendly beauty. On this AU55 example, small areas at the knee and the crest of the front wing go beyond simple cabinet friction to become distinct wear. Their influence is modest, however, compared to the great sculptural qualities of the design, which hold true despite the rub. Apricot-gold luster is bright, almost semireflective, with small copper spots at the right obverse and lower-left reverse rims. Minimally abraded with just a handful of marks to draw the eye. (#9135)

Luminous Ms61 High relief, Wire rim 1907 saint-Gaudens Double eagle

Ms62 1907 High relief twenty Bold Wire rim

4331 1907 High relief, Wire rim Ms61 nGC. One of the most famous and most enduring U.S. coinage designs is the obverse of the Saint-Gaudens double eagle, now as long-tenured in its second life as the gold American Eagle obverse as it was in its original run. That first run began (in circulating terms) with the High Relief double eagle of 1907, an impractical but beautiful rendition soon replaced in the name of 20th century efficiency. This legacy coin, pale yellow-gold with bold detail on features such as Libertys torch hand, has great luster and eye appeal despite wispy abrasions in the fields and a degree of contact on Libertys knee, a known high point. The wire rim is most prominent at the upper obverse. (#9135)

4332 1907 High relief, Wire rim Ms62 nGC. A true American classic, the Saint-Gaudens double eagle design has persisted from its 1907 origins to the present day, never losing its popularity. This is an MS62 Wire Rim example of the issue that started Americas love for the coin, the iconic High Relief twenty. Both sides show a prominent wire rim (most visible at the upper obverse) that frames moderately patinated and strongly lustrous apricot-gold surfaces. A light scrape over the front of the eagles wings contributes to the grade, while three copper spots, the largest and deepest near 9 oclock on the obverse rim, supply a pedigree marker. (#9135)

Unc Details 1907 High relief twenty Uncommon Flat rim Coin

4333 1907 High relief, Wire rim Ms63 PCGs. CaC. Few coin designs have attained such universal acclaim as the High Relief Saint-Gaudens double eagle, an iconic masterpiece that is also the most sculptural coin the U.S. Mint ever released to circulation. This Select example with Wire Rim present has a lightly patinated apricot-gold cast and the signature High Relief luster, half cartwheel, half halo. The grade comes down to a wispy abrasion in the left obverse field and minuscule flattening of Libertys knee; a handful of tiny marks in the rays below the flying eagle are of little consequence. A remarkable opportunity to own this immensely popular issue. (#9135)

4334 1907 High relief, Flat rim Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. As a Flat Rim representative with a minimal wire edge, this High Relief twenty is part of an elusive minority. It also offers an intriguing opportunity for collectors who otherwise would be hardpressed to obtain an example of the famous coinage type. While the yellow-gold luster shows disturbances from cleaning, particularly on the reverse, the sculptural central devices remain beautifully detailed and unworn. Imperfect yet still majestic, and still as bold an artistic statement as when it was made more than a century ago. Ex: ANA 1980 (Steve Ivy), lot 428. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.

4335 1907 High relief, Flat rim Ms62 PCGs. The wire rim present on so many 1907 High Relief double eagles was seen as a flaw at the time of striking. Some so-called Flat Rim pieces came about naturally, while others had the rim filed down at the Mint. This is one of the elusive Flat Rim pieces, broadly luminous with classic sculptural detail and yellow-gold color under light patina. Both sides show grade-defining flaws; the obverse has a couple of cuts on Libertys body, while a sizable rim bump appears just below the eagles tailfeathers on the reverse. Still, this is a readily collectible example of one of the most esteemed American coinage designs. (#9136)

Exceptional quality is the rule for the Wells Fargo holding of No Motto 1908 twenties. One can only wonder how the coins left the Treasury in such exemplary condition despite being stockpiled in a bin, then bagged and shipped. (#99142) 4340 1908 Motto Ms63 nGC. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was restored in 1908, thanks to much public outcry, but the Motto coins are much less available than their No Motto counterparts. This pleasing Select specimen is well-detailed and lustrous, with remarkably few contact marks for the grade.(#9147)

select Mint state 1909/8 Double eagle

saInt-GaUDens DOUBLe eaGLes


4336 1907 arabic numerals Ms64 PCGs. This orange-gold and limegreen Saint-Gaudens type coin has dynamic luster and exemplary preservation. The strike is bold except on the eagles leg feathers. Encapsulated in a first generation holder. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#9141) 4337 1908 no Motto Ms65 nGC. The light greenish-gold surfaces of this attractive Gem are enlivened by highlights of rose color. The well-detailed design elements are complemented by vibrant mint luster and the fields show only minor signs of contact. (#9142) 4341 1909/8 Ms63 PCGs. Fs-301. Though it is the only SaintGaudens double eagle die variety in the Guide Book, the 1909/8 twenty does not command a substantial premium over its normal date counterpart until the Mint State range, though the two diverge rapidly once there. This Select example has broadly shining luster with areas of saturated sun-yellow as well as orange and hints of pink. (#9151)

Better Date 1909/8 twenty, Ms63

Gem 1910 saint-Gaudens twenty

4342 1909/8 Ms63 PCGs. Fs-301. A pleasing apricot-gold example of this obvious hubbed overdate. Crisply struck and satiny with clean surfaces and hints of steel-blue on the highpoints. Although obtainable for only a modest premium above bullion value in circulated grades, the 1909/8 becomes scarce at the MS63 level and is seldom seen any finer. Certified in a green label holder. (#9151)

4346 1910 Ms65 PCGs. Dynamic cartwheel sheen invigorates this peach-gold and olive-green Gem. Sharply struck with a remarkably unabraded reverse and a few wispy obverse field grazes. Encapsulated in a green label holder. Just four pieces have been certified finer by PCGS (2/12). (#9154)

Low-Mintage select 1909-D twenty

Ms65 1911-s Double eagle Vivid Color, Vibrant Luster

4343 1909-D Ms63 PCGs. An orange-gold Select Saint-Gaudens twenty with good luster and an uncommonly mark-free appearance. The strike is attentive, though light incompleteness of detail on Libertys raised knee and the eagles breast merit passing mention. Among the lowest mintage issues of the type. (#9152) 4344 1909-s Ms64 nGC. Double eagles dated 1909 are scarce or rare from the Philadelphia and Denver Mints, with only those from San Francisco making candidates for type collections, or one-per-year collections. This piece has pleasing yellow luster with excellent eye appeal. A hardwood case accompanies this lot, identifying it as a Florida Hoard Double Eagle. The interior of the case has a place for the coin in its NGC holder, and also has a Medallic Art Company gold plated silver plaque of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (46 mm x 63 mm). Additional documents are also included.(#9153)

4347 1911-s Ms65 PCGs. The 1911-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle is not too difficult to locate in Gem condition, but the issue becomes rare at the MS66 level. This delightful Gem example features well-detailed design elements, with vibrant mint luster, and vivid orange-gold surfaces that display highlights of lilac. (#9159)

Ms64+ 1912 Double eagle Conditionally rare Issue

Ms64+ 1909-s Double eagle


4348 1912 Ms64+ PCGs. Many double eagle collectors are unaware that the 1912 is the first issue of a new design type. The obverse has 48 stars instead of 46, due to the addition to the Union of New Mexico and Arizona. This is an attractive olive-gold nearGem with a splendidly preserved reverse and only minor obverse abrasions. Population: 14 in 64+, 35 finer (2/12). (#9160) 4349 1913 Ms62 PCGs. CaC. Honey-gold luster compliments full mint brilliance on this highly lustrous representative of the scarce, low-mintage 1913 double eagle. Myriad surface marks are present, with darker patina on the high points.(#9161)

4345 1909-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. A sharply struck and coruscating wheat-gold near-Gem of this popular early San Francisco SaintGaudens issue. Careful inspection locates only infrequent minor marks. MS64+ is probably the ideal collector grade for the issue, with a modest premium over bullion value but better in quality than 95% of survivors. (#9153)

Session Two, Auction #1168 | Friday, March 9, 2012 | 6:00PM ET

1913-s saint-Gaudens twenty, Ms62 Low-Mintage, early series Issue

4353 1922 Ms64+ nGC. The 1922 Saint-Gaudens double eagle is an available date and high-end Choice examples , like the present coin, are quite popular with type collectors. The devices are welldetailed and the lustrous surfaces show highlights of rose and orange.(#9173)

1922-s Double eagle, Ms63 Once Considered extremely rare

4350 1913-s Ms62 nGC. The 1913-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle is easier to locate than the low mintage of 34,000 pieces would suggest. This well-struck MS62 specimen exhibits intense brassy mint luster on the attractive lemon-yellow surfaces. There are some grade-consistent contact marks that show most readily in the left obverse rays. Eye appeal is strong for the grade. (#9163)

1914-s twenty, Ms66 none Finer at PCGs

4354 1922-s Ms63 PCGs. While still scarce today, the 1922-S was once considered a major rarity in the Saint-Gaudens series. Its rarity was a result of gold exports shortly after the time of issue. From the 1950s until the early 1980s, hundreds or even thousands of pieces were found in overseas bank vaults. This Select Mint State piece has frosty yellow surfaces with scattered marks. The design elements are a little weak at the lower obverse, but strong elsewhere. (#9174)

1922-s Double eagle, Ms63 thousands exported

4351 1914-s Ms66 PCGs. This is one of only a few MS66 1914S twenties we have had the opportunity to offer. A carefully preserved specimen, both sides glow with bright, rich yellowgolden luster amid finely granular fields. The striking details are well above average with only the slightest softness on several of the peripheral stars at the base of the obverse. Somehow, this coin managed to avoid the numerous abrasions and contact marks so often encountered on a coin of this size. Worth a close examination and a strong bid by a discriminating gold specialist. PCGS has never certified a finer example (2/12). (#9166)

1915 Double eagle, Ms64+ elusive Date in Higher Grades

4355 1922-s Ms63 PCGs. The 1922-S, sporting a mintage of 2.658 million pieces, is generally available through the MS63 grade level. Near-Gems are elusive, and anything finer is quite rare. The MS63 specimen presented here displays bright apricot-gold luster, and for the most part, well defined design features. A handful of minute abrasion limit the grade. Thousands of 22-S twenties were apparently exported and held as reserves in foreign banks, partially accounting for the relatively large supply available today. (#9174) 4356 1923-D Ms65 PCGs. This fully struck Saint-Gaudens Gem has vibrant luster and is magnificently preserved aside from subtle contact on the eagle. The 1923-D is the most collectible branch mint issue from the 1920s. Housed in a first generation holder. From The Dr. John Y. Harper, Jr. Collection.(#9176) 4357 1923-D Ms65 PCGs. CaC. This boldly defined Gem exhibits satin luster that is lighter yellow at the centers and a few shades deeper at the outer margins on each side. A spectacular piece for the connoisseur.(#9176)

4352 1915 Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. The 1915 Saint-Gaudens double eagle is a low-mintage date and high-grade examples are seldom encountered. This impressive high-end Choice specimen displays sharply detailed design elements and lustrous orange-gold surfaces with outstanding eye appeal. Population: 9 in 64+, 38 finer (1/12). (#9167)

1924 twenty Dollar, Ms67 terrifically appealing type Coin

Fabulous Ms64 1924-s Double eagle

4358 1924 Ms67 PCGs secure. The 1924 double eagle is, along with its 1928 cousin, the most widely available of the P-mint SaintGaudens issues in high Mint State grades. That is a trait that should actually make this Superb Gem more appealing to a wider audience rather than less, as it is the textbook definition of a classic type coin. Glorious luster radiates from each side of this piece, and the surfaces are every bit as unabraded as the grade promises. Areas of yellow-gold and orange-gold compete for viewer attention with small accents of deeper lilac color. Population: 78 in 67, 1 in 67+, 1 in 68 (1/12). (#9177)

4359 1924-s Ms64 PCGs secure. CaC. The year 1924 in SaintGaudens coinage is illustrative of a pattern that would affect several subsequent dates: an amply available Philadelphia issue, coupled with heavily melted Denver and San Francisco emissions. Only a relative handful of 1924-S double eagles have survived to the present day, certainly fewer than 1% of examples struck. This is a better coin among those survivors, richly lustrous with a strong orange-gold cast and glimpses of silver-lavender on and near Libertys figure. A handful of light, scattered abrasions combine to account for the grade. Population: 95 in 64, 3 finer (1/12). (#9179)

seldom-seen 1925-D twenty, Ms64

4360 1925-D Ms64 PCGs. Different verse but the same song. The 1925-D Saint-Gaudens used to be far more elusive to a previous generation (or two), but today overseas repatriations have made the issue more available. But there is a second theme in the counterpoint: The easy discoveries of European and Latin American hoards have been long since made. In the case of the 1925-D, the near-Gem level is about the highest obtainable for most collectors, as the Gem populations thin out markedly at both PCGS and NGC. This MS64 coin offers frosty luster over sharply struck surfaces. A couple of ticks on Libertys cheek and forehead are among the few marks on each side that keep this piece from the Gem level, but the eye appeal is grand. PCGS has a skimpy seven submissions finer (1/12). (#9181)
Session Two, Auction #1168 | Friday, March 9, 2012 | 6:00PM ET 195

4361 1926 Ms65 nGC. This sharply defined Gem has a few trivial marks on each side, consistent with the grade. Both sides have frosty and fully brilliant green-gold surfaces.(#9183) 4362 1926 Ms65 nGC. A delightful Gem with brilliant luster, this frosty yellow and rose-gold specimen is an ideal type candidate. Both sides have trivial scattered marks, mostly hidden in the design motifs.(#9183)

1926-s saint-Gaudens twenty, Ms64+ rare Issue in Higher Grades

Uncirculated Details 1926-s twenty Doubled Die Obverse

4365 1926-s Ms64+ PCGs. CaC. The 1926-S was one of the great rarities in the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series before small numbers of the date surfaced in European holdings in the 1950s. The 1926-S is still quite rare in grades above MS64. This high-end Choice example displays vibrant mint luster, well-detailed devices, and attractive greenish-gold surfaces. Outstanding eye appeal. Population: 22 in 64+, 33 finer (1/12). (#9185) 4363 1926-s Improperly Cleaned nGC Details. Unc. The vast majority of 1926-S double eagles never left the banking system, going from coining room to melting pot over the course of about a decade. This coin is one of the rare exceptions. Though its luster has been disturbed by a past cleaning, it still retains a great deal of its original yellow-gold brightness and shows no trace of wear. The obverse has few significant abrasions. The obverse is die doubled, identical in appearance to the FS-101 1926, which indicates the doubling first occurred on a working hub. 4366 1927 Ms65 nGC. One of the common P-Mints from the 1920s that are usually chosen for type sets, this Gem has satiny yellow luster with brilliant mint surfaces and excellent eye appeal. (#9186) 4367 1927 Ms65 PCGs. Both sides of this lovely Gem blend lemonyellow, wheat-gold, and pale orange, creating an aesthetic delight. An ideal type coin for the connoisseur.(#9186) 4368 1927 Ms66 PCGs. An incredible Premium Gem, this lovely Saint-Gaudens double eagle has delightful luster with hints of pink and greenish patina. The 1927 is rarely found finer, with only 13 better PCGS certified examples (2/12).(#9186)

Choice 1926-s Double eagle Interesting reverse Die alignment

4364 1926-s Ms64 PCGs. CaC. This well-detailed Choice specimen shows just a touch of softness on the lower obverse, and the pleasing greenish-gold surfaces are well-preserved, with only a few minor contact marks visible on both sides. Vibrant mint luster adds to the considerable visual appeal. The reverse die is slightly rotated in a clockwise direction on this piece. PCGS has graded only 34 coins in higher numeric grades (1/12). (#9185)

1910 roman Gold twenty Dollar, Pr65 rarely seen Gem example of this two-year type

4369 1910 Pr65 nGC. The recorded number of 1910 proof double

eagles produced, 167 examples, appears to be on the high side, but it is true that there are considerable numbers certified at the major grading-authentication services. Garrett and Guth comment concerning the issue: ... this is one of the more available dates in Proof condition [sic]. Sales to collectors recovered after tumbling in 1909, the year after the unpopular matte Proofs were sold. The Roman or satin finish coins proved much more popular with collectors. The 1910 issue is available in most grades, including 17 examples reported by NGC and PCGS as PF-66, four as PF-67, and even two coins as PF-68. This date ranks as the seventh scarcest of the 10 Proof coin series.

The authors also confirm the existence of a single matte proof bearing the 1910 date, last seen in 1998. Between the two grading services combined, there are 68 proof examples of this issue certified as always, factoring in an unknown number of duplications and of course there are likely still uncertified examples that reside in old-time collections (or perhaps as unrecognized proofs in some newer collections). The present Gem example bears the unmistakable hallmarks of a proof striking, including crisply delineated details on Libertys head, hair, toes, and the Capitol building, for example. A few small contact marks, none individually severe, both keep this piece from an even higher grade. The yellow-gold surfaces are bright and boast much appeal. Census: 8 in 65, 18 finer (1/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3411. (#9207)

4370 (1842-52) a. Bechtler Dollar, 27G. 21C., Plain edge XF45 PCGs. K-24, r.3. This apricot-gold Choice XF representative exhibits luster throughout the legends. A wave is present on the lower left obverse and on the left reverse, a mint-made strikethrough precedes the D in DOLLAR, and a few brief hair-thin marks are clustered above the first A in CAROLINA. Listed on page 365 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#10040)

4371 (1837-42) C. Bechtler Dollar, n reversed aU50 PCGs. K-4, r.4. While not a rarity among Bechtler dollars, this variety has an enduring popularity because of the dramatic die blunder with the N in ONE reversed, actually punched over a correctly aligned N. The surfaces appear original with significant reddish-gold and lilac color. A couple of small die imperfections are noted, but the only one of significance is a lamination in the field below the 8 in 28G. Listed on page 364 of the 2012 Guide Book. (#10055)

aU reeded edge 1851 Humbert Fifty Kagin-7, 887 thous.

Choice aU 1852 Humbert Fifty Dollar K-11, 887 thous.

4373 1851 Humbert Fifty Dollar, reeded edge, 887 thous. aU50 nGC. K-7, r.4. The differences between the Kagin-6 (Reverse of 1851) and Kagin-7 varieties are subtle to the uninitiated, but the Reverse of 1851 has a much larger ring of concentric circles that resembles a bulls-eye or target, while the Reverse of 1852 has a smaller ring in the center. The ribbon band that runs along the edge is closer to the physical rim of the coin on the Reverse of 1851 than on the Reverse of 1852, where it is visibly removed from the edge. It appears that the reverse was changed, likely late in the year, and the obverse die continued in service for some time before the new 1852-dated obverse was pressed into service, creating a transitional variety. The present apricot-gold example has moderate wear and relatively few abrasions for the octagonal fifty type. We note only a vertical pinscratch beneath the ribbon end and a small obverse corner ding at 4 oclock. Listed on page 368 of the 2012 Guide Book. Ex: Pacific Rim Collection of Territorial $50s (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 2114.. (#10214)

4374 1852 Humbert Fifty Dollar, 887 thous. aU55 nGC. K-11, r.5. Kagin-11 is the final octagonal slug issue bearing the name of U.S. Assayer Augustus Humbert. Later the same year, a final fifty dollar variety was released that referred solely to the United States Office of Gold, followed by ten and twenty dollar issues in 1853 before the facility was replaced by the fledging San Francisco Mint. The typical K-11 slug grades VF and has problems such as cleaning or edge knocks. The present piece, however, retains noticeable glimpses of orange-gold luster, and although small abrasions are scattered, none are singularly detracting. Listed on page 368 of the 2012 Guide Book.
