1869-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS62

Rare “69-S”, but not DDO Cent

The 1869-S twenty dollar is plentiful in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades. However, Mint State examples are scarce through MS62 and rare any finer, most being in the MS60 to MS61 range, the finest condition collectors are likely to encounter of this issue. The NGC population is 17 with 8 higher, three of the latter being MS62+ examples.

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.

1857-S Liberty Half Eagle PCGS MS62

Another “Fishing for Bass”?

Ex: H.W. Bass Jr. Collection. Of the six 1857-S half eagles offered in the three Harry Bass gold sales, this piece was the finest. At the time (1998), it was the highest certified example at PCGS, and it is still housed in the old blue label Generation 4.0 PCGS holder (with barcode on the back) from that sale. The 1857-S half eagle remains scarce in Mint State to this day, and rare with original, non-seawater surfaces.

1868-S Seated Liberty Quarter PCGS MS65

A Rare Gem of a Sitting Lady

The 1868-S Seated Liberty quarter claims a mintage of 96,000 pieces, all struck from a single pair of dies. There was little interest in branch mint issues before about 1893, as most 19th century collectors were content to concentrate on date runs, acquiring a nice specimen from any Mint (often Philadelphia Mint proofs) to update their collection every year. As a result, few high-quality examples were saved by contemporary collectors and the 1868-S is very rare in high grade today. The current PCGS population is only 3 with 3 higher.

1875-S Twenty Cent Piece PCGS MS67

A Mere 1 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 example herein offered is noticeably lighter and more lustrous than is discernible from our images. The PCGS population is only 6 with 1 higher.

1922-S Peace Dollar PCGS MS66

Just 1 Graded Higher

The San Francisco issue is the scarcest of the three 1922 Peace dollars, especially in Mint State. The fact that its mintage of nearly 17.5 million pieces exceeds that of the 1922-D by more than 1.5 million pieces is a non-factor. Throughout the Peace dollar series there is an unbroken rule that for each year this denomination was coined, the San Francisco issue is rarer in Gem or better grades than either the Philadelphia or Denver counterparts. Mintage totals play no part in this. Many researchers suggest the lower survival rate of S-mint dollars in high grade is due to more active circulation on the West Coast, and in some cases bags of Uncirculated coins still in government vaults were just moved more frequently, reducing the grades of the coins contained. The PCGS population is only 19 with 1 higher, the latter being an MS66+ example. This one is extremely lustrous and semi-prooflike in appearance.

1934-S Peace Dollar NGC MS67

The ONLY One, None Graded Higher

The San Francisco Mint was tasked to strike Peace dollars on October 26, 1934, leaving just over one month to complete production for the year. Understandably, only a small mintage of 1.1 million pieces was accomplished. Relatively few examples were saved for numismatic purposes in the 1930s, as collectors failed to appreciate the elusive nature of the issue. As a result, the 1934-S is famously the scarcest Peace dollar in Mint State, overall. The bulk of the survivors are in the MS62 to MS64 grade range, with gems being much more elusive, and higher-grade coins, rare. This is the only MS67 (with none higher) at either NGC or PCGS. In hand, this beast is lighter, more lustrous and more eye-appealing than seen in our images.

1912-S Indian Eagle PCGS MS65

Rare and Highly Attractive Gem

As an issue overall, the 1912-S is positioned in the middle of the 32 issues in the ten-dollar Indian series, but it is in Uncirculated grades that it is best known. Few were set aside in mint condition, and of the ones that were most are not better than MS62. At the Gem level, the 1912-S is a stand-up-and-take-notice rarity. This particular representative boasts lovely orange-gold color and silky-smooth surfaces. The PCGS population is just 15 with 2 higher.

1891-S Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

None Higher at NGC – Frosty-White

In the 2014 reference Morgan Dollar, Michael Standish writes: “John Love recalls five bags full of low-grade Uncirculated 1891-S Morgans being part of LaVere Redfield’s hoard of silver dollars.” This corresponds to the moderate availability of this date through MS64. In Gem condition, however, the 1891-S emerges as a better date among San Francisco Morgans, and in MS66 it is genuinely rare. At the MS67 grade level, there are only 4 so-graded by NGC, including the present example.

1893-S Morgan Dollars NGC/PCGS AU50

Four (Rare Ones) Of A Kind

The effects of the Panic of 1893 included the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, ending the massive mandated coinage of Morgan dollars the U.S. Mint was required to produce every year. Morgan dollar mintages were drastically reduced at all U.S. Mints in 1893, and the San Francisco Mint produced a series low business-strike mintage of just 100,000 pieces. Most of the small mintage was either widely circulated or melted in 1918, under the provisions of the Pittman Act. Accordingly, the 1893-S is the most elusive Morgan dollar in today’s market.
