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.

Offered at $1,180 delivered

We can offer NGC x 5; PCGS x 25

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.

1938 New Rochelle Half Dollar PCGS/CAC SP (Specimen) 67

A Glittering Specimen

Reportedly, a total of 50 “presentation” strikes (now called Specimen strikes by both PCGS and NGC) were produced for distribution to members of the Coinage Committee, the Westchester County Coin Club, and local dignitaries. Struck on proof planchets with polished dies, the pieces resemble true proofs — usually with flashy, brilliant surfaces and mirror-like fields. Commemorating the 250th anniversary of the French Huguenots settlement at New Rochelle, New York, these “Specimen” coins are rare and popular among classic commemorative collectors. The PCGS population is only 11 with 5 higher, the highest grade being a lone MS68 example.

1878-CC Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU53

Scarce CC $20 Lib.

Double eagle production at the Carson City Mint declined drastically in 1878, when a meager mintage of 13,180 pieces was accomplished. The coins were released into circulation and fulfilled their intended purpose admirably in the hard-money economy of the western United States. The 1878-CC is one of the scarcest issues of the Carson City series today, both in terms of total number of coins known and high-grade rarity.

1852 Assay (887 Thous.) $50 PCGS AU53

Flashy, Eye-Appealing

Struck in .887 fineness under the authority of the United States Assay Office of Gold, Augustus Humbert assayer, the 1852 octagonal fifty dollar slugs are perhaps the most recognized numismatic artifacts of the historic Gold Rush era. The Reeded Edge fifties of this period were much easier to produce than the older Lettered Edge Humbert pieces. Accordingly, they were struck in large numbers and widely accepted throughout the region and in overseas trade. Easily recognized in their day, most examples were later turned in and melted for recoinage at the San Francisco Mint when that facility opened in 1854. The PCGS population stands at 13 with 15 higher. While not apparent in our images, this example is particularly flashy, due to lustrous, semi-prooflike obverse

1891-S Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

None Higher at NGC – Frosty-White

In the 2014 reference Morgan Dollar, Michael Standish writes: “John Love recalls five bags full of low-grade Uncirculated 1891-S Morgans being part of LaVere Redfield’s hoard of silver dollars.” This corresponds to the moderate availability of this date through MS64. In Gem condition, however, the 1891-S emerges as a better date among San Francisco Morgans, and in MS66 it is genuinely rare. At the MS67 grade level, there are only 4 so-graded by NGC, including the present example.
