1851 Humbert $50 PCGS MS63

Spectacular Choice Unc.

Lettered edge, 880 Thous. The octagonal ingots or “slugs” first produced in 1851 by the firm of Moffat & Co., operating as the United State Assay Office of Gold in San Francisco, rank among the most iconic coins ever issued in this country. Octagonal fifties were struck in 1851 and 1852 only. Several varieties exist, including those in 880 and 887 pure gold, with lettered and reeded edges, and with and without 50 at the central reverse, among other differences. The vast majority of survivors of these and similar Humbert fifties are found in grades ranging from VF to high AU. Mint State examples are significantly rarer. The PCGS population is only 2 with 2 higher, the latter both being MS63+ representatives. This particular example is highly lustrous and features a flashy, semi-prooflike obverse.

1855 Wass-Molitor $10 NGC AU58

Very Rare Borderline Unc.

The San Francisco Mint opened in 1854, but it was a cramped facility that also lacked sufficient parting acids to strike satisfactory quantities of .900 fine gold coins. West Coast commerce required a steady supply of freshly coined bullion, and since the official mint was not yet up to speed, two private minters stepped in to fill the gap. Kellogg & Co. produced twenty-dollar pieces only, while Wass Molitor & Co. produced ten, twenty, and fifty-dollar coins.
These necessity issues imitated Federal designs of their respective denominations, with the exception of the fifty dollar piece, which was more reminiscent of the Federal gold dollar. The ten-dollar piece featured a small, relatively close date with the final digit repaired on the obverse die with a circular plug. The minting activities of both Kellogg & Co. and Wass Molitor ceased once the San Francisco Mint was able to resume gold production. The NGC population is just 3 with three higher, none better than MS61.

1901-S Barber Quarter NGC VF35

Highly Sought-After Circ. Key

The 1901-S Barber quarter boasts one of the lowest mintages in the series (72,664 pieces) and it is the scarcest date overall. The majority of the survivorship grades no finer than Very Good, and collectible midgrade pieces are inherently rare. Housed in a very popular old NGC “Fatty” holder.

1920-S Saint Gaudens Double Eagle NGC MS65

Tied for Highest Graded

The 1920-S Saint-Gaudens double eagle is among the greatest rarities in the series, particularly in high grade.  In the absolute sense, it’s a trifle more plentiful than the 1927-D, the 1930-1932 melt rarities, and by an even smaller margin, the 1921. However, in Gem condition, the 1920-S excels — at this level, only the 1921 and 1927-D are considered rarer or more significant acquisitions. This, of course, excludes the uncollectible 1933 and the 1907 Ultra High Relief pattern. No meaningful quantities have ever turned up in European hoards, and it is likely that none were ever officially used in the foreign trade. The example offered here is lighter and brighter in hand.The NGC population is a mere 2 with none higher.

1892-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS66

Tied for Highest Graded

 The 1892-O Morgan was not well-produced and most examples seen are softly struck, with subdued mint luster. Some were released into circulation near the time of issue, making it readily available in circulated grades. However, most of the mintage was held in government storage and a large portion of the production escaped melting under the provisions of the Pittman Act. Still, at the Gem level, the issue becomes elusive, due mostly to its poor production, and finer examples are decidedly rare. Here for the taking is a pleasing, satiny, color-free representative. The NGC population is just 6 (including 1 star-designated example) with none higher.

1884 Gold Dollar NGC MS68+

An 8 and a Plus

This flashy, highly lustrous and exquisitely preserved example looks as if it were struck very recently, as opposed to more than 130 years ago! According to the NGC population report, it’s one of only nineteen to have received this lofty grade for the entire run of Type Three Gold Dollars (with only five graded higher).

1922-S Peace Dollar PCGS MS66

Only 1 Graded Higher

The San Francisco issue is the scarcest of the three 1922 Peace dollars, especially in Mint State. The fact that its mintage of nearly 17.5 million pieces exceeds that of the 1922-D by more than 1.5 million pieces is a non-factor. Throughout the Peace dollar series there is an unbroken rule that for each year this denomination was coined, the San Francisco issue is rarer in Gem or better grades than either the Philadelphia or Denver counterparts. Mintage totals play no part in this. Many researchers suggest the lower survival rate of S-mint dollars in high grade is due to more active circulation on the West Coast, and in some cases bags of Uncirculated coins still in government vaults were just moved more frequently, reducing the grades of the coins contained. This Gem is noticeably brighter when viewed up close and personal. The PCGS population is just 20 with a single (MS66+) example graded higher.

Choice Mint State

 A mintage of 30,475 Capped Bust Right half eagles was accomplished in 1804, with seven die varieties known for the date.

1857 Gold Dollar NGC PR64+ Ultra Cameo

Extremely Rare

Prior to 1858, the U.S. Mint had no organized program for selling proof sets to collectors, and so production of proofs was small and erratic. This held true especially for gold coins; Garrett and Guth state of the proof 1857 gold dollar: “The mintage is unknown, but it may be somewhere in the 15 to 18 coin range. There are probably about 10 coins still remaining.” On the other hand, PCGS estimates a mintage of approximately a dozen pieces. We’re aware of only three Proof exampled having been auctioned in the past ten years and only one of them was a Deep Cameo/Ultra Cameo. In hand, this coin exhibits loads of eye-appeal and richly frosted devices, offset beautifully by deeply reflective fields.
