1870 Pattern Half Dollar PCGS PR65+ RB

Judd-993, Pollock-1123, High R.7. The obverse and reverse dies are both the designs for regular-issue half dollars of 1870. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Although these could be considered die trials for a regular issue, there is little doubt that, given the plethora of different die designs and combinations, plain and reeded edges, strikes in copper, aluminum, and silver — a cornucopia of variations — that these patterns were offered in sets to collectors or their providers. This is the sole highest graded PCGS example.

1908 Motto Saint Gaudens

Double Eagle PCGS PR66

The Philadelphia Mint found it impossible to polish the basined surfaces and high relief devices of the new Saint-Gaudens design in the same manner as the old brilliant proofs of previous years. Accordingly, they adopted an artistic matte, or sandblast, finish for gold proof coins in 1908. After striking, the 1908 proofs were heavily sandblasted with a coarse grain of sand that produced a dark olive-gold patina, with none of the reflective fields and field-device contrast of earlier proofs. The resulting finish resembled that seen on some European medals of the period, but contemporary U.S. collectors much preferred the old brilliant proof finish. Mint records indicate only 101 proof double eagles were distributed in 1908. Remaining unsold pieces were subsequently melted. Probably no more than 60 to 70 examples survive today in all grades. In hand, the color is more of a yellow-gold than the reddish-orange seen in our images. The PCGS population is only 5 with 3 higher.

1936 Buffalo Nickel (Type 1)

PCGS PR68+

Buffalo nickel proof coinage resumed in 1936 after a two-decade hiatus. The Mint originally offered proofs in a Satin Finish, as here, but quickly switched to a Brilliant Finish after receiving collector feedback. The one we offer here is more vibrant than seen in our images and though not apparent here, exhibiting areas of gorgeous multicolored patina on each side. The PCGS population is only 5 with 2 higher.

1942/1-D Mercury Dime PCGS MS66FB

Easily One of the Finest Survivors

Both the Philadelphia and Denver versions of the 1942/1 overdate Mercury dime are doubled die (or dual-hubbing-error) varieties, but the pickup points are different between the two. The 1942/1 Philadelphia shows a rather obvious (plain to a good pair of unaided eyes) 1 downstroke at the fore points of the 2. The 1942/1-D is considerably harder to spot, and the pickup point is a little notch of doubling at the bottom of the 4 in the date, rather than the 2. (There are signs of a 1 under the 2, but they are far fainter than on the 1942/1 Philadelphia variety.) This one is brilliant and quite pleasing. The PCGS population is 13 with 5 higher, though 4 of the latter are 66+ examples. In other words, only one MS67 has been recognized.

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.

1859 Liberty Double Eagle PCGS AU55

A Head Turner (or Turned)

In the early 1850s, substantial California Gold Rush bullion was shipped via Panama to the Philadelphia Mint for coining. The advent of the San Francisco Mint, and its emergence from growing pains, slowed the flood of West Coast bullion to a trickle by 1859. That year, Philadelphia struck only 43,597 double eagles, down from more than 2,000,000 pieces in 1851 and 1852. The few collectors of large denomination gold selected proofs, and the 1859 is nearly unobtainable in Mint State. Patience is required to locate any example, and when one appears in the marketplace, it is almost always in XF to AU grades. This particular example is noticeably more lustrous and attractive in hand.

1846 (Medium Date) Seated Liberty Half Dollar PCGS/CAC PR62

Extremely Rare

The 1846 half dollar displays two date sizes–Medium Date and Large Date. The two varieties are easily distinguished by inspection of the 4 in the date. The Medium Date 4 is connected between the lower serif of the crossbar and the base, whereas the Large Date 4 has a noticeable separation in this area. Almost all of the proof 1846 half dollars are of the Medium Date variety. The example offered here is lighter and its surfaces, noticeably more reflective, in-hand. The proof mintage is unknown. However, the number of survivors is low – probably less than two dozen. The PCGS population is only 2 with 9 higher.

1866 Motto Liberty Double Eagle PCGS MS63

Pop 1, One Graded Higher

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the reverse of the double eagle design in 1866 and the Philadelphia Mint struck 698,775 coins with the new motif. The coins circulated heavily in the 19th century and few high-quality examples were saved by contemporary collectors. The issue is prized by type collectors today, as the first year of the Type Two design, but examples in MS62 condition are very rare, and finer coins are virtually unobtainable. In hand, the color of this coin tends a bit more towards yellow gold, as opposed to the orange-gold seen in our images. This is the only PCGS MS63, with a single (MS64) example graded higher.

1895 Morgan Dollar PCGS/CAC PR64+

Gorgeous Frosted

Before you read about 1895 Morgan dollars, please note that contrary to what our images show, this coin is deeply mirrored, nicely frosted and attractively toned. Pictures aren’t always “worth a thousand words”! Now please proceed…An unremarkable mintage of 880 proof Morgan dollars was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1895, with the coins delivered in four batches throughout the year. Records show a tiny business-strike mintage of 12,000 examples was also produced, but no regular-issue coins have ever turned up in any collection. The fate of the 1895 business-strike Morgan dollars is one of the greatest mysteries in American numismatics. Prominent researchers, from Q. David Bowers to Roger W. Burdette, have offered ingenious theories about the missing coins, but conclusive evidence remains elusive. One theory suggests the circulation-strike coins were never actually struck and the mintage figures represent some kind of clerical error in the records. Another theory indicates the coins were struck, but all were subsequently melted, perhaps under the provisions of the Pittman Act in 1918. Whatever the truth may be, no business-strike 1895 Morgan dollars are known to collectors today, leaving the small supply of proofs alone to satisfy collector demand. Accordingly, the 1895 Morgan dollar is the rarest, most sought-after issue in this incredibly popular series.
