1856-O Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC MS62

Mint $2.50 Rarity

The New Orleans Mint struck only 21,100 examples of the 1856-O quarter eagle, a denomination that was unloved and neglected in favor of the half eagle and (after 1849) the double eagle throughout much of its history. San Francisco, in only its third year of operation, also struck 1856-S quarter eagles for the first time since opening, and managed to best New Orleans by a margin of more than 3 to 1. Whether these comparative mintages were an early sign of the increasing decrepitude that would overtake the Southern mint by the early 20th century, or merely an indication of the continuation of the hard-money tradition of the Old West that began a few years earlier with the Gold Rush of 1849, is not readily known today. Nonetheless, 1856-O quarter eagles are quite elusive in Mint State. This is one of only four so-graded by NGC with none higher.

1869 Seated Liberty Dollar NGC PR66

Scintillating, Silvery and Seated

Notwithstanding the reported mintage of 423,700 1869 Seated Liberty dollars for circulation and 600 proofs, the issue is especially elusive in high grade in either format, especially so in the higher Mint State grades. Apparently most of those coins were either melted at some point or exported to the Orient, which in the end amounts to virtually the same fate. The NGC population is just 11 with 5 higher. Much lighter, brighter and more appealing looking in hand.

1796 Draped Bust Quarter NGC XF45

Rare, First and Only Year of Type

The Small Eagle quarter ranks among the rarest silver types. It was struck only in 1796, due to the preference of bullion depositors for the dollar, the largest silver denomination. The mintage was a meager 6,146 pieces. The Spanish Colonial two reales coins were also widely available in the late 18th century and the first half of the 19th century in America and elsewhere, worth 25 American cents and widely accepted as an alternative to the U.S. quarter. The fledgling U.S. Mint, with its limited bullion deposits and meager capacity, could scarcely compete with the pervasive Spanish Colonial coins. NGC has graded only 195 examples (including re-submissions) in all grades combined.

1856-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS63

Choice, Flashy

From a mintage of more than 1.1 million pieces, the 1856-S Liberty double eagle has always been available in lower circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were very rare before the issue surfaced in large numbers in modern shipwreck finds. More than 1,000 examples of the 1856-S were recovered from the wreck of the S.S. Central America alone, representing 18 different die varieties. Many of these coins were in Mint State grades, making the 1856-S a popular choice with branch mint type collectors. This beauty exhibits more luster and a lighter, more yellow-gold (as opposed to orange-gold) hue than seen in our pictures.

1879 Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS65

One of the Very Finest Known

Production of double eagles declined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1879, with a reported mintage of 207,600 pieces. Many circulated survivors are available in today’s market, but Mint State coins are rare. And when it comes to choice uncirculated or better examples, we’re talking RARE! NGC and PCGS combined, have graded only 30 pieces MS63 or higher. Better yet, this is the sole MS65 graded by NGC, with just one higher and PCGS has graded a single MS65, with none higher. This one displays a sharp strike and satiny luster, which is much more pronounced in-hand.

1876 Sailor Head Pattern Dollar PCGS PR62RB (Ex: Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection)

Fishing for a “Bass”?

Judd-1463a, Pollock-1614, R.8 – Unique. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This enigmatic version of William Barber’s beautiful Sailor Head design is unique, by virtue of its plain edge. The design was probably intended for the Trade dollar, but was never adopted. USPatterns.com lists seven specimens of this design in copper, with a reeded edge (Judd-1463), and two examples in silver (Judd-1462), but this is the only plain edge copper piece known. The design elements are razor-sharp throughout and the reflective fields show only minor hairlines and contact marks, with a mix of original red and light brown patina. A patch of dark amber carbon appears on Liberty’s cheek, possibly the result of King Farouk’s efforts to improve his copper coins many years ago. Ex: “Colonel” E.H.R. Green; King Farouk; Palace Collections of Egypt, Brinton T. Schorer; Bass Collection, Part I.

Five Dollar Gold Piece PCGS AU55

Very Rare C. Bechtler

50G. 20C. K-15, R.7.  America’s first gold rush took place in the piedmont area of North Carolina and Georgia in the 1820s and ’30s. The expanding economy of the region desperately needed a more dependable medium of exchange than the miner’s gold dust could provide. Christopher Bechtler, a German-born goldsmith and watchmaker, established a private mint at Rutherford, North Carolina to process gold dust from the region into useful coinage. Beginning in 1831, he and his family began producing gold coins of simple design that circulated widely in the Southern United States until the Civil War. He was an honest and competent metallurgist and his accurate assays ensured his coins were of full weight and value. Bechtler began marking his coins with their exact weight and/or gold content in carats with his second series of coinage in 1831. This example is far more lustrous in-hand. The PCGS population is only 6 with 5 higher.

1879-CC Capped Die Morgan Dollar PCGS MS65

Rare CC $1

A Top 100 Variety. The Capped Die 1879-CC dollar has long been known, but decades ago, they were shunned by collectors who thought something was not quite right about the mintmark area. Scholarship has made great strides since those days, and now the so-called Capped Die coins are worth a premium in the better grades of Uncirculated. The one offered here is noticeably lighter, as well as more lustrous and appealing, than seen in our drab images. The PCGS population is only 11 with 5 (barely) higher, as all of the latter are 65+ examples.

1886 Liberty Nickel NGC MS67

Tied with One Other for Highest Graded

The 1886 Liberty nickel claims a small mintage of 3.3 million pieces and the issue is generally considered the second-rarest date of the series, just slightly behind the 1885. However, in high-grade condition, the 1886 is actually rarer than its 1885 counterpart. The one offered here is sharp and lustrous, not to mention (thankfully), an obvious business strike. This is one of just two so-graded by NGC, with none higher. For its part, PCGS has recognized three MS67’s with none higher, either.

1841-D Half Eagle NGC MS63

Highly Lustrous, Flashy

According to Doug Winter, from an original mintage of 29,392 pieces, the 1841-D Liberty half eagle is estimated to have a surviving population of approximately 150-175 specimens in all grades combined. These numbers are quite small in an absolute sense. However, in circulated grades, at least, this issue is actually one of the more available ones in the series, as the supply of many other dates is even smaller. A scratch in the right obverse field might be all that’s keeping this coin from a higher grade (and considerably higher value). In hand, it’s even more appealing looking than seen in our images. The NGC pop report shows just 3 at this grade, with 3 higher.
