1868-S Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS62

Only Two Graded Higher

Although more than 800,000 double eagles were struck at San Francisco in 1868, few pieces survive in Mint State. In fact, examples are scarce in MS60 and MS61, and anything finer is a major rarity. The PCGS population is a mere 8 with 2 higher, each of the latter being MS62+ examples.

1866-S Motto Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS61

“Motto” for Today is…

This is the first San Francisco Type Two double eagle issue. Although struck in large quantity (842,250 pieces), the mintage circulated heavily in the West and precious few Uncirculated pieces have surfaced in the past 150+ years. Among the small number of Mint State survivors, none have graded MS63 or better at either PCGS or NGC. The PCGS population currently stands at 19 with 8 higher.

1929 Indian Half Eagle PCGS MS64

Last Year-Of-Issue Rarity

The Indian Head half eagle series was short-lived. Yet, it comprised a number of highly elusive dates, none more so than the 1929. Although the 1909-O is perhaps more recognizable to the uninitiated thanks to its low mintage of 34,200 coins, the 1929 is rarer in the absolute sense with a survival rate approximately 50% lower than its New Orleans counterpart. The Mint struck 662,000 five-dollar gold pieces that year, but nearly the entire mintage was held in reserve and eventually melted after the Gold Recall of 1933. Coins that avoided the melting pot are apt to be found in AU to Uncirculated condition, generally MS61 to MS63.

1839-C Classic Quarter Eagle NGC AU55

Sharp AU Charlotte $2.50

 While the 1839-C is one of the more frequently encountered Charlotte quarter eagles, it is disproportionately popular because it is a part of the Classic series. Only 18,140 pieces were produced, and of that number it is estimated perhaps 300 to 400 examples are known today in all grades.

1857-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS66

(Not SOS, but) SS Central America

Despite a mintage of 970,500 pieces, this was a rare issue in high grade before the advent of modern shipwreck finds. Like most Type One double eagles, the 1857-S was not difficult to locate in circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were extremely rare before thousands of high quality coins were salvaged from the wreck of the S.S. Central America. That famous shipwreck find made high grade Type One double eagles available to collectors for the first time. As Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth note, it “changed the landscape of collecting double eagles profoundly.” Seemingly always popular and in demand.

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
