1853 $10 Assay Office Ten Dollar, 900 Thous. PCGS AU53

Local merchants petitioned the U.S. Assay Office to issue lower denomination gold coins in early 1853 to deal with a chronic shortage of small change in the region. The Assay Office complied, issuing $10 and $20 coinage on an emergency basis from February 23 to March 1. But these coins were necessarily of lower fineness than the .900 alloy specified by the federal government because the firm had no parting acids on hand. When a supply of parting acids finally arrived, the Assay Office produced $10 coins with the proper fineness between March and April of 1853. They are classified as the K-16 variety in Don Kagin’s series reference and are quite elusive and prized today. In hand, this one’s color is lighter than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 2 with 14 higher.

1907 No Motto Indian Eagles NGC/PCGS MS61

First Year

Saint-Gaudens’ initial design for the Indian eagle did not include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, but the inscription was added in 1908, creating a popular two-year design type. The 1907 issue is the go-to No Motto type-coin for many collectors. And that makes perfect sense, as it’s a first- year-of-issue of a two-year type.

Offered at $1,180 delivered

We can offer NGC x 5; PCGS x 25

1892 Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU55

Rare, Lustrous, Semi-Prooflike

The 1892 double eagle is the last of the ultra-low-mintage dates in the Liberty Head series, struck to the extent of just 4,430 coins. Examples in any grade carry a premium over the common date, but this issue is especially rare in Mint State. A limited supply of About Uncirculated coins supplies the needs of most collectors. Sadly, you wouldn’t know it from our images, but this example is lustrous, flashy and semi-prooflike in appearance.

1878-CC Liberty Double Eagle NGC AU53

Scarce CC $20 Lib.

Double eagle production at the Carson City Mint declined drastically in 1878, when a meager mintage of 13,180 pieces was accomplished. The coins were released into circulation and fulfilled their intended purpose admirably in the hard-money economy of the western United States. The 1878-CC is one of the scarcest issues of the Carson City series today, both in terms of total number of coins known and high-grade rarity.

1811 Tall 5 Capped Bust Half Eagle NGC MS63

No “Shortie” Here

In Mint State, this, the BD-1, is by far the scarcer of the two 1811 half eagle varieties. In the absolute sense, BD-1 is fairly plentiful for an early half eagle with perhaps 175 to 250 coins known, per John Dannreuther. But the population thins considerably in Mint State. The NGC population is a mere 3 with 5 higher, none finer than MS64. The one we offer here boasts a sharp strike and frosty surfaces.

1805 Draped Bust Half Eagle NGC MS64

Flashy, Choice Uncirculated

Prior to the publication of Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties in 2006, there was considerable confusion surrounding the half eagle die varieties of 1805 and 1806. Some coins were routinely offered as “new varieties” because they didn’t match anything in Walter Breen’s 1960s-era monograph. One later author described seven 1805 half eagle varieties, and noted that five of those seven were unlisted in Breen. Finally, using the observations of Harry Bass, Dannreuther correctly published the five known varieties in his 2006 reference, creating order out of chaos. When viewed in hand, this coin is lighter and far more lustrous and flashier than seen in in our images. The NGC population is just 16 with 4 higher.

1910 Indian Half Eagle PCGS PR64

Gorgeous Roman Finish Proof $5

The year 1908 marked the beginning of the Indian Head design type, the first major design change on that denomination since 1839. The new design, issued in the unique sunken relief format, encouraged the Mint to make another change to normal coinage practices: altering the finish of proof coins from polished fields to a sandblast texturing similar to that employed on some art and award medals. Thus, this issue is a first of American coinage in many ways and today is sought-after both as a type coin and as an intriguing element of early 20th century Mint experimentation. In hand, this example is lighter and considerably more vibrant than seen in our images. The PCGS population is just 13 with 13 higher.

1876-CC Liberty Eagle PCGS AU50

Lustrous CC $10 Rarity

Annual gold eagle coinage at the Carson City Mint breached the five-figure barrier (and barely) only four times prior to the 1885 to 1889 hiatus during which the mint was shut down. Double eagles dominated large denomination gold production from the Comstock Lode-fed branch mint during this period. In 1876, only 4,696 tens were struck. This issue circulated extensively and is unknown in Mint State today. The PCGS population is just 11 with 12 higher. In hand, this example is lighter and brighter, as well as more lustrous and attractive than seen in our images.
