1821 Capped Head Quarter Eagle PCGS MS60

Rare Unc.

 It had been 13 years since the last quarter eagles were coined until this denomination was resumed again. Production remained low with 6,448 produced in 1821. And only 17,042 pieces were coined for the entire type! As John Dannreuther points out: “Besides the usual factors that remove coins from circulation–wear, loss, and so on–the early gold issues faced another factor that doomed many of them. Pre-1834 old coins were melted after the June 28, 1834 passage of the act reducing the weight of gold coins.” The 1821 quarter eagle is the first issue of this design, and the entire mintage is from a single die pair. Because so few business strikes were coined after the proofs, nearly all have reflective surfaces as on this coin. Its color is more yellow-gold, as opposed to the orange-gold seen in our images. More importantly, it looks much more appealing than expected for the assigned grade. The PCGS population is 2 with 11 higher.

1847 Liberty Eagle NGC MS64

Very Rare, Dazzling, Near-Gem

The two highest mintage issues of the No Motto Liberty ten series are the 1847 and 1847-O. Something happened that year to increase production, and the mostly likely cause was the Spanish-American War, which continued throughout 1847. Despite a comparatively large production, the 1847 is usually seen in XF and AU grades, uncirculated examples are tough to come by and choice uncirculated ones are almost unheard of. This is the only MS64 graded by NGC with none higher (though they have also recognized a single MS64PL, as well). This exquisite representative boasts flashy, semi-prooflike fields and some pleasing cameo contrast on each side.

1870-S Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS62

Few are Finer

The 1870-S Liberty double eagle claims a substantial mintage of 982,000 pieces, but most of the coins were released into circulation, where they were either exported or worn down and melted for recoinage. The average survivor grades no better than VF or XF today, and the issue is a prime condition rarity in grades above MS61. The PCGS popualtion is only 17 with 3 higher.

1884 Gold Dollar NGC MS68+

An 8 and a Plus

This flashy, highly lustrous and exquisitely preserved example looks as if it were struck very recently, as opposed to more than 130 years ago! According to the NGC population report, it’s one of only nineteen to have received this lofty grade for the entire run of Type Three Gold Dollars (with only five graded higher).

1926-S Buffalo Nickel NGC MS65

Apart from the various varieties such as the 1916 Doubled Die, the 1918/7-D, et cetera, the greatest condition rarity among regular issues in the Buffalo nickel series is the 1926-S. This date is famous for its low (for the series) mintage of 970,000 pieces, the only production total that does not breach the seven-figure barrier. Survivors bring a premium even in low circulated grades. Mint State examples are actively traded due to the “conditional key” status of the issue, although these are primarily in the MS63 to MS64 range. At the Gem grade level, the availability of this issue plummets, and finer pieces are prohibitively rare. As is so often the case, this coin is much more lustrous than seen in our images. The NGC population report shows just 10 at this grade level with 6 higher.

1929 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle PCGS MS65

Saint Rarity

The year 1929 marks a distinct line of demarcation in the Saint-Gaudens double eagle series between common and rare. The 1928 Philadelphia twenty is a well-known and popular type issue that is well-produced and generally available in high grades. On the other hand, each later-date Saint-Gaudens double eagle, beginning with the 1929 and continuing through the series’ end in 1933, is a major rarity. Excluding the uncollectible 1933s, the five issues that usher in the series’ end comprise the 1929, the 1930-S, the 1931 and 1931-D, and the 1932. Of those five issues, the 1929, while still quite rare in an absolute sense, is the most available overall. Most examples of the 1929, however, are confined to the lower Mint State grades, and in Gem and finer condition, the issue takes a sudden leap upward, becoming rarer than the 1931 and 1932 issues. Only six have been graded higher by PCGS.

1852-O Liberty Eagle PCGS AU58

Lustrous, Semi-PL

With their energies directed mostly toward the production of double eagles, New Orleans Mint officials struck a paltry 18,000 ten-dollar gold coins in 1852. In 2006, Doug Winter, who called this issue “one of the rarest No Motto eagles,” estimated 80 to 90 coins survived in all, including two to four Uncirculated coins. Today, NGC shows two in Mint State (one in MS60 and one in MS61) on their population report, while PCGS shows one in MS60, with none higher. The PCGS population is only 4 with 3 higher (two AU58+’s and the aforementioned MS60).

1852 Small Head Wass, Molitor & Co. $5 NGC VF30

A “Small Head”

Wass, Molitor & Co. was one of the best-respected assaying and coining firms in San Francisco during the early years of the California Gold Rush. These gold pieces were welcome sights in circulation at a time when coinage was sorely lacking. This is an example of the rare 1852 Small Head variety modeled after the federal half eagle. Differences are most notable on the coronet (“W.M. & Co.”) and reverse legend. The NGC population report shows only two in VF with none higher.

1825 Capped Bust Dime NGC PR65

According to some estimates, only six Proof 1825 dimes are known in all grades. Currently, the NGC population is just three, including this one and one graded higher. And the PCGS population is only one. While not apparent in our images, this example is richly and attractively toned in turquoise hues with traces of violet. The surfaces are fully reflective, including within the reverse shield stripes – a trait that PL business strikes are unlikely to exhibit. This is a truly rare and desirable coin!

1909 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle PCGS MS65+

The Philadelphia Mint struck a smallish production of 161,282 Saint-Gaudens double eagles in 1909, split between the normal date and 1909/8 overdate varieties. A large number of lower Mint State examples surfaced in a European hoard some time ago, but the 1909 remains elusive in MS65 condition, and finer examples are prime condition rarities. This is a highly attractive example with a PCGS population of just 4 with 7 higher.
