When the Dollar is no Longer the World’s Reserve Currency

1892-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS66

Tied for Highest Graded

 The 1892-O Morgan was not well-produced and most examples seen are softly struck, with subdued mint luster. Some were released into circulation near the time of issue, making it readily available in circulated grades. However, most of the mintage was held in government storage and a large portion of the production escaped melting under the provisions of the Pittman Act. Still, at the Gem level, the issue becomes elusive, due mostly to its poor production, and finer examples are decidedly rare. Here for the taking is a pleasing, satiny, color-free representative. The NGC population is just 6 (including 1 star-designated example) with none higher.

1884 Gold Dollar NGC MS68+

An 8 and a Plus

1922-S Peace Dollar PCGS MS66

Only 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. This Gem is noticeably brighter when viewed up close and personal. The PCGS population is just 20 with a single (MS66+) example graded higher.

1804 Small 8 Capped Bust Half Eagle NGC MS63

Choice Mint State

 A mintage of 30,475 Capped Bust Right half eagles was accomplished in 1804, with seven die varieties known for the date.

The BD-1 has a surviving population of 70-90 examples in all grades.

1857 Gold Dollar NGC PR64+ Ultra Cameo

Extremely Rare

Prior to 1858, the U.S. Mint had no organized program for selling proof sets to collectors, and so production of proofs was small and erratic. This held true especially for gold coins; Garrett and Guth state of the proof 1857 gold dollar: “The mintage is unknown, but it may be somewhere in the 15 to 18 coin range. There are probably about 10 coins still remaining.” On the other hand, PCGS estimates a mintage of approximately a dozen pieces. We’re aware of only three Proof exampled having been auctioned in the past ten years and only one of them was a Deep Cameo/Ultra Cameo. In hand, this coin exhibits loads of eye-appeal and richly frosted devices, offset beautifully by deeply reflective fields.

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.

1913-S Indian Eagle NGC MS64+ CAC

San Fran $10 Indian Rarity

The 1913-S Indian eagle claims a low production total of 66,000 pieces and few high-quality specimens were saved by contemporary collectors. Most of the coins were released into circulation at the time of issue, where they circulated heavily in both domestic and foreign trade. As a result, most examples seen today are in circulated grades, in the VF-AU grade range. In his Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century, Mike Fuljenz notes: “The 1913-S Eagle is regarded as one of the great condition rarities in all of the 20th century U.S. gold series. It is moderately scarce even in circulated grades and the small numbers of Uncirculated pieces that exist consist mainly of MS60 to MS62 pieces. Only three examples have been graded higher by NGC. In MS63, this date is rare and it is very rare in MS64.”

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.
