1859-O Liberty Double Eagle NGC XF45

A Rare O-mint $20 Lib

The 1859-O is a rare New Orleans double eagle with a small 9,100-coin mintage. Perhaps only approximately 100 pieces are known in all grades, primarily distributed throughout the various XF and AU levels. Only two Mint State pieces are documented, both heavily bag-marked. The 1859-O shares its rarity with most other O-Mint twenties leading up to the outbreak of the Civil War. After the San Francisco Mint became operational in 1854, gold deposits in New Orleans declined significantly, and large denomination gold coinage plummeted. Between 1854 and the 1909, when the New Orleans Mint ceased coin production for the final time, fewer than 115,000 double eagles were struck at that facility.

1851 “887” Reeded Humbert $50 NGC XF45

An Eight-Sided Offering

Augustus Humbert was U.S. Assayer in San Francisco and operated his firm under Moffat & Co. as the provisional mint years before the San Francisco mint officially opened. There are two variants of the 1851 887 Thous. reeded edge fifties, differing in the placement of the outer concentric circle on the reverse relative to the rim. In spite of their large size (nicknamed “slugs”), these pieces traded hands frequently in Gold Rush California. They were one of the few forms of gold whose stated value could be trusted. When viewed in hand, the coin is lighter (in hue, not weight!) than seen in our images.

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.

1878-CC Liberty Eagle NGC XF40

Rare $10 from Carson City

While Philadelphia and San Francisco saw ten-dollar gold coinage production surge in 1878, the opposite happened in Carson City. There,  output instead, slipped to just 3,244 pieces. Over the past 20 years or so, the number thought to be extant has risen slightly from an estimated 45 to 55 pieces, to a higher number of 60 to 75 coins. Heritage has auctioned just a single (PCGS) XF40 example in the past ten years.

1861-C Liberty Half Eagle PCGS XF45

Rare C-mint Civil War $5 Lib

Several factors account for the key status of the 1861-C within the Charlotte series. First, its mintage is low with only 6,879 pieces produced. Second, of those coins struck it is estimated that a mere 150-175 examples are known today in all grades. Third, it is the final year of issue for the Charlotte mint, always an important collecting point. Fourth, and perhaps of greatest importance to many collectors, is a portion of the mintage is believed to have been struck after the mint was ceased by the Confederacy. It is impossible to determine which coins were struck under Confederate control, but the factor of intrigue remains for collectors.

1795 Three Leaves Flowing Hair Dollar NGC XF45

Let That Hair Flow

Flowing Hair Dollars were struck for less than two years before their replacement by the longer-lived Draped Bust type. High-grade survivors of this brief series are under tremendous demand from type set collectors. Unlike so many others and thankfully, this one looks un-dipped/original and displays even medium steel-grey color on both obverse and reverse.
