1873-CC Trade Dollar PCGS MS64

Seeing Double “C”s on a Rare “Trade”

The Trade dollar represented the first substantial silver dollar mintage at the Carson City Mint since its opening in 1870. The 1873-CC, struck to the extent of 124,500 coins, eclipsed the mintages of all four Seated dollars from this mint combined by more than 100,000 pieces. Nevertheless, this was the second-lowest production total from Carson City for the Trade dollar series, trailing only the 1878-CC (97,000 coins). This coin is considerably more lustrous, as well as more colorful in hand. Tied with seven others at this grade level with just a single example graded higher.

1916 Standing Liberty Quarter NGC MS65FH

Sweet 16

From a remarkably low 20th century mintage of 52,000 pieces, the 1916 Standing Liberty quarter is an acknowledged key to the series. First-year type collectors have no other option to choose from, as no quarters were struck at the branch mints in 1916. The Type One design as modified the following year to cover Liberty’s torso with a coat of chain mail, another important consideration for type purposes. Thus, the 1916 is prized by collectors of several different collecting disciplines and examples are always in high demand.  The one offered here is lightly toned on the reverse and features satiny surfaces. It is also brighter in hand than seen in our images.

1875-S Twenty Cent Piece NGC MS67

A Blazer, Only One Graded Higher

The twenty cent denomination is one of the great failures in American numismatics. There was never any great need for it. Its use was limited to the West, where consumers would often pay a quarter for items worth a bit (one reale, or 12.5 cents) and receive a dime back in change. Copper did not circulate in the Pacific states, so consumers were often shortchanged by two cents. The twenty cent denomination was suggested by Nevada Senator John P. Jones as a way of solving that problem. It never caught on, and the denomination was abandoned for circulation in 1876, one year after it was first introduced.   The NGC population I sonly 8 with 1 higher.

1903 Liberty Eagle NGC MS66

Single Highest Graded by NGC

The 1903 Liberty eagle is a great condition rarity in MS66, somewhat surprising considering the mintage was 125,800 pieces and it is frequently encountered in lower grades. There is only one other MS66 certified — a PCGS coin (which auctioned in 2012 for $22,325). The strike is sharply detailed throughout, and the frosty lemony-gold surfaces are nearly perfect, aside from a lone mark behind Liberty’s eye that determines pedigree.

1901 Morgan Dollar NGC MS63

Choice Mint State

An adequate mintage of 6.9 million Morgan dollars was accomplished in 1901, but the issue is more elusive than the respectable production total would suggest, especially in high grade. Many coins were released into circulation and suffered heavy wear and attrition over the years. Of the coins held in government storage, many were probably melted in 1918, under the provisions of the Pittman Act. Relatively few high-quality examples were saved by contemporary collectors. Today, the 1901 Morgan dollar can be found in circulated grades without much difficulty, while lower Mint State specimens are scarce, and high grade examples are rare. Lighter and brighter than seen in our images.

1831 Small Letters Capped Bust Quarter NGC MS65

Virtually White Gem

The 1831 Capped Bust quarter claims a mintage of 398,000 pieces, with seven die varieties known for the date. Chief Engraver William Kneass experimented with two different sized punches for the reverse lettering, creating Small Letters and Large Letters subtypes. While not designated on the NGC grading label, this is a Small Letters example. The one offered here is brighter and flashier than seen in our images. Only six 1831 quarters of various varieties have been graded higher by NGC.

1878 Liberty Eagle NGC MS65

The Highest Graded at NGC

When one just looks at the mintage of 73,700 pieces, the 1878 would appear to be moderately scarce but nothing would tip off the collector to just how rare it actually is in high grades. Our records show merely six MS64 appearances for the 1878 eagle in the past 10 years, attesting to the issue’s extreme rarity at this grade level. Both the NGC and PCGS population reports show just a single MS65 example with none graded higher.

1877-CC $20 Liberty AU58 PCGS

Elusive

Widely circulated at the time, many of the 1877-CC $20’s ended up in overseas shipments and have extensive surface scratches – the specimen on offer today has a minimum of surface distractions and sports considerable luster and eye appeal. Perfect for the specialist CC collector or US gold enthusiast.

1881-O Liberty Eagle NGC MS61

Tied for Highest Graded

The 1881-O is the rarest New Orleans Mint eagle from the early part of this decade. Coins graded AU55 to AU58 are very rare, and there are only a small number of Mint State examples known. In 2006, Winter reported probably four of five Uncirculated pieces extant, a number that likely hasn’t changed appreciably, despite inflated certification totals. This one is semi-prooflike and quite flashy in its appearance. Tied with 7 others for the highest graded by NGC.

1795 Three Leaves Flowing Hair Dollar NGC XF45

Let That Hair Flow

Flowing Hair Dollars were struck for less than two years before their replacement by the longer-lived Draped Bust type. High-grade survivors of this brief series are under tremendous demand from type set collectors. Unlike so many others and thankfully, this one looks un-dipped/original and displays even medium steel-grey color on both obverse and reverse.
