1861-C Liberty Half Eagle PCGS XF45

Rare C-mint Civil War $5 Lib

Several factors account for the key status of the 1861-C within the Charlotte series. First, its mintage is low with only 6,879 pieces produced. Second, of those coins struck it is estimated that a mere 150-175 examples are known today in all grades. Third, it is the final year of issue for the Charlotte mint, always an important collecting point. Fourth, and perhaps of greatest importance to many collectors, is a portion of the mintage is believed to have been struck after the mint was ceased by the Confederacy. It is impossible to determine which coins were struck under Confederate control, but the factor of intrigue remains for collectors.

1907 Flat Edge High Relief PCGS MS64

Pick at Reduced Price

The 1907 High Reliefs with Roman Numerals in the date, is acknowledged as the most beautiful design ever employed on a circulation-strike U.S. coin. They were the result of a lengthy collaboration between famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who was encouraged to develop the design by President Theodore Roosevelt, and Chief Engraver Charles Barber of the Philadelphia Mint.  Each coin required three blows from the 150-ton medal press to completely bring up the design, and the planchets had to be annealed between each blow. The average time needed to strike each individual coin was 12 minutes, clearly too slow to strike any large number of coins. As a result, only 12,367 pieces were reportedly produced.

1857 Liberty Half Eagle PCGS MS64

Only One Graded Higher

For many collectors, the idea of 1857-dated Mint State gold coinage begins and ends with the 1857-S double eagles from the S.S. Central America. To a lesser extent, however, the 1857 half eagle also fits the bill, though with a mintage in the high five figures, there is an understandable cap on the number of potential Mint State pieces. The PCGS population is a mere 4 with 1 (MS64+ example) graded higher. The one offered here displays rich color and a bold strike.

1811 Tall 5 Capped Bust Half Eagle PCGS MS61

A “Tall” One

A mintage of 99,581 half eagles was accomplished in 1811, with two die varieties known for the date. The coin offered here represents the BD-1 variety, characterized by the Tall 5 in the denomination. Experts believe 175-250 examples of the BD-1 survive today in all grades. The 1811 half eagle has been a popular date with collectors since the earliest days of the hobby. Examples began to appear at auction at least as early as the A.C. Kline Sale (Moses Thomas and Sons, 6/1855), where a nice example was offered in lot 185. The popularity of this issue has remained constant over the years. The PCGS population stands at 4 with 29 higher.

1903-S Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS65

Tied for Highest Graded 

The 1903-S is a plentiful and largely unheralded issue, that only begins to command a real numismatic premium at the near-Gem grade level. This is one of only 18 to have received this grade from PCGS with none higher. The example offered here exhibits a very bold strike, satiny surfaces and pleasing orange-gold color.

1879-CC Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS60

This 79-CC Rarity is no Dollar!

The 1879-CC Liberty double eagle is an elusive issue, from a small mintage of 10,708 pieces (the second-lowest double eagle mintage of the 1870s from the mint in Carson City). Traditionally, the 1879-CC was thought to be even more elusive than it is today, but a small hoard of examples surfaced in the 1990’s, to augment the meager supply. Most of the hoard coins were in the XF-AU grade range, so the issue remains very rare in Mint State condition. The NGC population is only 5 with 6 higher.

1857-S S.S. Central America $20 Liberty PCGS MS65

“Head Turner”/“Turned Head”

The discovery of the thousands of Type One twenties in mint condition from the salvage of the S.S. Central America in the late 1980s proved to be a boon for collectors since this first design type was rarely encountered in Uncirculated grades before these pieces entered the market. One characteristic common to all of these salvaged twenties is the extraordinary mint luster. Because the coins lay undisturbed more than two miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean they were unaffected by the abrasive effects of salt water that normally subdues the luster on gold coins found on ship wrecks found in more shallow waters.

1915-S Pan Pac $50 Round NGC MS64

Heavy Metal,” Anyone?

The Panama-Pacific Exposition was authorized to sell up to 1,500 examples each of both the Round and Octagonal versions of the Pan-Pac fifties, and the Mint struck 1510 examples of the Round version, including 10 examples for the Assay Commission. Unfortunately, the high cost of the coins ($100 per coin) discouraged all but the most dedicated collectors, and only 483 specimens of the Round design were sold. The remaining 1,017 coins were melted after the close of the exposition. These rare gold commemoratives are avidly sought-after in today’s market. If you’ve never held one of these massive and extremely impressive coins in your hand, you owe it to yourself to do so.

1883-S Morgan Dollar PCGS MS65

Not Your Everyday S-Mint Morgan

Although heavily touted as a conditionally scarce date in Mint State, the 1883-S Morgan remains collectible in grades through MS64, and is frequently offered at auction in this range. It is the Gem grade level from where this issue draws its fame. In MS65, the 1883-S Morgan is a grand rarity in absolute numbers, and in the context of the series, is prohibitively rare. This particular example is sharp, flashy and virtually white, with considerable eye-appeal. The PCGS population is just 21 with 5 higher.

1879-CC Morgan Dollar NGC MS65

Flashy Gem, Super Popular Morgan

For practical collecting purposes, none of the Carson City issues in the Morgan dollar series are particularly difficult to acquire in circulated condition, although the 1889-CC is far more expensive than its counterparts. Cross over into Mint State and little changes, although a few dates become noticeably more challenging to locate in eye-appealing condition. Among these is the 1879-CC. This is the second-scarcest issue in Uncirculated condition overall, and in MS65, only the 1889-CC and 1893-CC are rarer. The 1879-CC, in high grade, is sometimes referred to as “the other Carson City key.” The one offered here is sharply detailed and flashy, with highly desirable semi-prooflike fields. Only 9 have been graded higher by NGC.
