1882 Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS65+ DPL

DMPL Gem $3

The 1882 three dollar gold piece claims a business-strike mintage of 1,500 pieces, certainly a small total in absolute terms, but not out-of-the-ordinary in the context of the series. The 1882 has a relatively high survival rate, probably because contemporary collectors realized the low production total would make the coins more desirable in the future and saved high-quality pieces. The issue is still very rare at the MS65 level, however. This coin is quite dramatic in appearance, with fully, deeply mirrored surfaces on each side, accompanied by heavily frosted devicesThis is one of only two examples of this date to have received the highly coveted DPL designation from NGC. The other was graded a lowly MS62DPL.

1855-O Liberty Eagle NGC AU58

A Flashy O-mint $10 Lib

Only 18,000 eagles were minted in New Orleans throughout 1855, as gold coin production shifted to the new San Francisco Mint, which had opened the previous year. Apparently, very few were saved as this issue is rarely seen in higher grades. The NGC census stands at just 14 with none higher. This particular example offers flashy, highly lustrous surfaces and a pleasing overall appearance. Listed at $21,200 in the CDN CPG and the NGC price guide and $22,500 in Trends.

1907 Wire Edge High Relief $20 PCGS MS64

Still Worth Way Over Melt

Often called the most beautiful American coin design, the Saint-Gaudens double eagle exhibited intricate treatment of the drapery and equal depth of the reverse design, rendering a three-dimensional appearance rarely seen on American coins before or since. Barbara Baxter writes in her chapter on “Coins and Medals” published in Augustus Saint-Gaudens 1848-1907, A Master of American Sculpture: Saint-Gaudens coins and medals set a new standard for American numismatic art, and the precedent that he established resulted in the commissioning of other professional artists, notably his former associates Bela Lyon Pratt, James Earle Fraser, and A.A. Weinman, to redesign other denominations of the coinage. Listed at $25,400 in the CDN CPG and $25,000 in the PCGS price guide.

1915-S Pan Pac Octagonal $50 PCGS MS63

Eight-Sided & Quite Large

Holding an example of the Octagonal fifty dollar gold pieces struck to commemorate the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915, one notices several things. Chief among them are the coins’ size, shape, weight, and intricate design. Of the 1,509 examples struck, 645 pieces were sold to fair-goers for $100 apiece. The Octagonal coins’ novel design, reminiscent of California’s storied Gold Rush, undoubtedly contributed to their popularity. Additionally, the Octagonal slugs depict added dolphins around the margins, symbolizing the new “uninterrupted water route made possible by the Panama Canal.” For the same historic and design reasons collectors sought them out a hundred years ago, collectors continue to seek out examples today in all grades. The coin offered here is somewhat more lustrous and yellow-gold in hue, than seen in our images. Listed at $92,000 in the CDN CPG and $87,500 in the PCGS price guide.

1901-S Barber Quarter PCGS MS66

Don’t Throw Away This “Key” (Date)

David Lawrence calls the 1901-S the “King of all Barber Quarters” because of its low mintage and low survival rate. Only 72,664 Barber quarters were struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1901, a remarkably low mintage for any 20th century coin. There were relatively few coin collectors on the West Coast in 1901. Interest in collecting mintmarked issues was still in its infancy in the rest of the country, so most of the small mintage slipped into circulation at the time of production. Few examples were saved for numismatic purposes.  As a result, most 1901-S quarters appear in lower circulated grades today. Mint State coins are quite elusive. The PCGS population is only 4 with 5 higher. This one is frosty, white and gorgeous!

1834 Classic Quarter Eagle NGC MS65

A Real Classic

The 1834 remains the most plentiful Classic Head quarter eagle issue in high grade, despite its mintage of little more than 112,000 pieces being significantly lower than the production totals of the following two years. In the years leading up to 1834, gold coinage did not actively circulate in the United States, as the coins contained more bullion value than their face value, prompting individuals to melt the coins down at a profit. In 1834, William Kneass’s design marked a reduction in weight from 4.37 gm to 4.18 gm. The weight reduction returned the gold value of the quarter eagle to its face value, allowing this denomination to once again circulate domestically. This one is sharply detailed and highly lustrous with flashy, semi-prooflike surfaces. The NGC population is just 15 (two of which are star coins) with two higher. Listed at $52,500 in the NGC price guide.

1899-S Liberty Double eagle NGC MS65

A Rare Gem

Although the San Francisco Mint struck slightly more than 2,000,000  double eagles in 1899, many of them were used in foreign banking and business transactions. Additionally, many of the extant examples were repatriated from European holdings in recent decades. This very sharply struck examples is tied with ten others for the highest graded by NGC. For its part, PCGS has graded only three MS65’s with one higher. Listed at $20,600 in the CDN CPG, $24,500 in the NGC price guide and $21,000 in Trends.

1907-D Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS66

Gemmy Last Year of Issue

Although authorized as a U.S. branch mint in the 1860s, the Denver Mint operated as an assay office for its first four decades until coins were finally minted there in 1906. Liberty double eagles were only produced at the Colorado facility in 1906 and 1907, with a total production for both years of less than 1.5 million pieces. These coins are quite elusive in top grades. The one offered here features satiny looking luster and a lovely overall appearance. The PCGS population is just 24 with 3 higher, two of the latter being MS66+ examples. Listed at $18,200 in the CDN CPG and $18,000 in the PCGS price guide.

1854 Arrows Seated Quarter PCGS MS65+

Gem Two Year Type Rep

In 1853, the weight of the quarter dollar was reduced from 6.68 gm to 6.22 gm, and the reduction was noted on the coins by the addition of arrows on each side of the date and a burst of rays in the reverse fields around the eagle. The rays were removed for 1854 coinage, but the arrows remained at the date until 1856. The With Arrows, No Rays type was coined at Philadelphia and New Orleans in 1854 and 1855, and at San Francisco in 1855. The 1854 Philadelphia issue is the most plentiful of these, coming from a mintage of more than 12.3 million coins. Nonetheless, Gem examples are scarce, and finer pieces are rarely offered. We expect to receive multiple orders for this coin, based on our asking price. So don’t say we didn’t warn you to hurry up and buy it!  Listed at $13,500 in the PCGS price guide.
