1879-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS66

Tied for Highest Graded 

After an intermission of nearly two decades since the Mint closed in 1861, New Orleans resumed coinage production in 1879, following terms of the Bland-Allison Act that Congress passed a year earlier. The year 1879 saw the production of 2,325 double eagles, the only coins of the Type Three design that were minted in Louisiana. The facility also coined 2,887,000 silver dollars. Other denominations were added in later years through 1909 when that Mint was permanently closed. Mint State 1879-O Morgan dollars are not particularly rare, although Gems are elusive and finer examples are rarely encountered. In hand, this specimen is lighter and brighter than seen in our images. The NGC population is only 11 with not a single representative graded higher.

1934-S Peace Dollar NGC MS67

The ONLY One, None Graded Higher

The San Francisco Mint was tasked to strike Peace dollars on October 26, 1934, leaving just over one month to complete production for the year. Understandably, only a small mintage of 1.1 million pieces was accomplished. Relatively few examples were saved for numismatic purposes in the 1930s, as collectors failed to appreciate the elusive nature of the issue. As a result, the 1934-S is famously the scarcest Peace dollar in Mint State, overall. The bulk of the survivors are in the MS62 to MS64 grade range, with gems being much more elusive, and higher-grade coins, rare. This is the only MS67 (with none higher) at either NGC or PCGS. In hand, this beast is lighter, more lustrous and more eye-appealing than seen in our images.

1925 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle PCGS/CAC MS66+

Highest Graded 1925 DDR

Close examination reveals slight reverse doubling along the lower edge of the eagle and among letters of the motto, IN GOD WE TRUST. Die doubling of similar strength in a 20th century copper, nickel, or silver series might secure a Guide Book listing, but double eagles are currently collected principally by type or issue.

1912-S Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Rare and Highly Attractive Gem

As an issue overall, the 1912-S is positioned in the middle of the 32 issues in the ten-dollar Indian series, but it is in Uncirculated grades that it is best known. Few were set aside in mint condition, and of the ones that were most are not better than MS62. At the Gem level, the 1912-S is a stand-up-and-take-notice rarity. This particular representative boasts lovely orange-gold color and silky-smooth surfaces. The PCGS population is just 15 with 2 higher.

1853 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar, 900 Thous. PCGS AU53

Local merchants petitioned the U.S. Assay Office to issue lower denomination gold coins in early 1853 to deal with a chronic shortage of small change in the region. The Assay Office complied, issuing $10 and $20 coinage on an emergency basis from February 23 to March 1. But these coins were necessarily of lower fineness than the .900 alloy specified by the federal government because the firm had no parting acids on hand. When a supply of parting acids finally arrived, the Assay Office produced $10 coins with the proper fineness between March and April of 1853. They are classified as the K-16 variety in Don Kagin’s series reference and are quite elusive and prized today. In hand, this one’s color is lighter than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 2 with 14 higher.

1907 No Motto Indian Eagles NGC/PCGS MS61

First Year

Saint-Gaudens’ initial design for the Indian eagle did not include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, but the inscription was added in 1908, creating a popular two-year design type. The 1907 issue is the go-to No Motto type-coin for many collectors. And that makes perfect sense, as it’s a first- year-of-issue of a two-year type.

1892 Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU55

Rare, Lustrous, Semi-Prooflike

The 1892 double eagle is the last of the ultra-low-mintage dates in the Liberty Head series, struck to the extent of just 4,430 coins. Examples in any grade carry a premium over the common date, but this issue is especially rare in Mint State. A limited supply of About Uncirculated coins supplies the needs of most collectors. Sadly, you wouldn’t know it from our images, but this example is lustrous, flashy and semi-prooflike in appearance.

Nearly Mint State Bechtler (Center Circle) $2.50 PCGS/CAC AU58

Rare

At a time when federal specie was virtually unseen in circulation, the Bechtlers successfully converted the gold mined in and around Rutherfordton and beyond into coinage suitable for local commerce, and of consistently high quality. It was a group of local miners who first petitioned Christopher Bechtler, a respected jeweler, to perform this assaying and coining service.  According to Don Kagin, “this was quite agreeable to Bechtler, for on July 2, 1831, and for several weeks thereafter, he ran an advertisement which announced that he was ready to coin the products of the mines into $2.50 and $5.00 pieces … .” Later, Bechtler would be the first to put gold dollars into the channels of American commerce.  PCGS has graded just 10 in all grades combined for this variety. Of those, this is the only AU58 with just 3 higher.

Complete 15 Piece Indian Quarter Eagle Set PCGS MS63

Nicely Matched

By 1911, just three years after its debut, the Indian quarter eagle was essentially a non-circulating denomination. In fact, in his Annual Report, the Mint Director formally recommended its discontinuance by Congress. The Annual Report stated in part: “There is a call for them each year, about the holiday season, for gift purposes, and during the remainder of the year they drift back to the Treasury.” Much of the “gift coinage” occurred at the Philadelphia Mint, which struck the denomination annually through 1915, and again from 1926 to 1929. The only branch mint to strike Indian quarter eagles was Denver, and only in 1911, 1914, and 1925. The 1911-D had a remarkably small mintage of only 55,680 coins, becoming the only true key date in the series for collectors.

Listed for a total of $23,760 in the CDN CPG and $27,675 in the NGC price guide. The 1911-D Indian quarter eagle is the most elusive issue of the series, from a tiny mintage of 56,680 pieces.

The 1911-D Indian eagle boasts the lowest business-strike mintage of the series, at a meager 30,100 pieces and is elusive in all grades.
