1856-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS63

Choice, Flashy

From a mintage of more than 1.1 million pieces, the 1856-S Liberty double eagle has always been available in lower circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were very rare before the issue surfaced in large numbers in modern shipwreck finds. More than 1,000 examples of the 1856-S were recovered from the wreck of the S.S. Central America alone, representing 18 different die varieties. Many of these coins were in Mint State grades, making the 1856-S a popular choice with branch mint type collectors. This beauty exhibits more luster and a lighter, more yellow-gold (as opposed to orange-gold) hue than seen in our pictures.

1945 Mercury Dime NGC MS65FB

Excellent Bands to Have

The circumstances that led to this odd strike rarity have never been fully explained, but it remains a great and celebrated issue when found with fully split central bands; David Lange makes the interesting point in his series reference that since the dies for all three mints were made at the Philadelphia Mint die shop, there should have been nothing fundamentally different about the P-mint strikes. The example we offer here is brilliant (noticeably more so than seen in our images), color free and highly appealing looking. The NGC population is only 8 with 11 higher.

A Pair of Kellogg & CO. $20’s NGC MS60 and NGC MS61

No Cereal

John Grover Kellogg was one of the most respected assayers and coiners in San Francisco during the Gold Rush. He was involved in many of the preeminent refining operations of the period, partnering with the likes of John Moffat, G.F. Richter, and Augustus Humbert from 1849 through 1860. In 1854, these $20 gold pieces served a vital role in commerce during the time between the closure of the United State Assay Office and the full operation of the San Francisco Mint, which opened in April of that year.

1806 Pointed 6, 8×5 Stars Draped Bust Half Eagle PCGS MS63

Choice Unc.

Numismatists have identified six die varieties of 1806 half eagles, five of them show a Pointed 6 in the date and the sixth has a Round Top 6. The 2021 Guide Book lists the mintage for all the Pointed 6 varieties as 9,676 pieces, while the single Round Top 6 variety has a large production total of 54,417 examples. This coin represents the BD-1 Pointed 6 variety, with stars 1 and 2 close to the curl, and imperfect T’s on the reverse. The BD-1 has a surviving population of 100-150 specimens in all grades and probably accounted for 6,000-8,000 pieces of the reported mintage. When tilted slightly, this coin is quite a bit lighter in hue (and less orange) than seen in the images. The PCGS population stands at 14 with 4 higher.

1937-D Three-Legged Buffalo Nickel PCGS MS66

Not Pulling Your Leg

The 1937-D Three-Legged variety is the result of a heavily eroded tail die being vigorously lapped in an effort to smooth out the fields for continued coinage. Effacing the bison’s forward right leg was an accidental consequence that may have gone completely unnoticed by mint employees. But coins struck after the fact have become one of the most sought-after varieties of the entire Buffalo nickel series. Available for a price through MS64, the Three-Legged variety becomes scarce in Gem condition, and anything finer is a great rarity that most collectors can only dream of owning. The PCGS population is only 11 with 3 higher, each of the latter being 66+.The coin offered here boasts a very pleasing overall appearance.

1879 Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS65

One of the Very Finest Known

Production of double eagles declined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1879, with a reported mintage of 207,600 pieces. Many circulated survivors are available in today’s market, but Mint State coins are rare. And when it comes to choice uncirculated or better examples, we’re talking RARE! NGC and PCGS combined, have graded only 30 pieces MS63 or higher. Better yet, this is the sole MS65 graded by NGC, with just one higher and PCGS has graded a single MS65, with none higher. This one displays a sharp strike and satiny luster, which is much more pronounced in-hand.

1857-S Liberty Half Eagle PCGS MS62

Another “Fishing for Bass”?

Ex: H.W. Bass Jr. Collection. Of the six 1857-S half eagles offered in the three Harry Bass gold sales, this piece was the finest. At the time (1998), it was the highest certified example at PCGS, and it is still housed in the old blue label Generation 4.0 PCGS holder (with barcode on the back) from that sale. The 1857-S half eagle remains scarce in Mint State to this day, and rare with original, non-seawater surfaces.

1889 Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

 1 of 5, None Higher

A substantial mintage of 21.7 million Morgan dollars was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1889, making the issue readily available in lower Mint State grades. However, many examples seen were struck from overused dies and high-grade specimens with a sharp strike are not at all plentiful. At the MS67 grade level the 1889 is a prime condition rarity. In fact, this is one of only five so-graded at NGC, with none higher. This particular example is more vibrant and colorful, when viewed in-hand.

1876 Sailor Head Pattern Dollar PCGS PR62RB (Ex: Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection)

Fishing for a “Bass”?

Judd-1463a, Pollock-1614, R.8 – Unique. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This enigmatic version of William Barber’s beautiful Sailor Head design is unique, by virtue of its plain edge. The design was probably intended for the Trade dollar, but was never adopted. USPatterns.com lists seven specimens of this design in copper, with a reeded edge (Judd-1463), and two examples in silver (Judd-1462), but this is the only plain edge copper piece known. The design elements are razor-sharp throughout and the reflective fields show only minor hairlines and contact marks, with a mix of original red and light brown patina. A patch of dark amber carbon appears on Liberty’s cheek, possibly the result of King Farouk’s efforts to improve his copper coins many years ago. Ex: “Colonel” E.H.R. Green; King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt, Brinton T. Schorer; Bass Collection, Part I.
