1919 Buffalo Nickel Error
1917-D Standing Liberty Quarter
1801 Draped Bust Half Dollar
1832 Capped Bust Half Dollar
1878-CC Liberty Seated Half Dollar
1878-CC Liberty Seated Half Dollar XF40 Details ANACS. ANACS notation for details "Whizzed" with minor abrasions to the reverse and scratches to the field surfaces of the obverse. Even with the notation this coin still has a good look. This Carson City Seated Half Dollar is desirable in all grades, due to the Carson City Mint halting production of the Seated Half Dollar to focus on mintage of Dollars that were in high demand for the Western mining interests during that era. Again, another Carson City minted Seated Half Dollar with a low survival rate. ANACS POP 2 in EF40 details and 66 across all grades straight and details.
1962-D Franklin Half Dollar Error
1962-D Franklin Half Dollar Double Denomination on Struck Dime Planchet Error MS64 PCGS. Very attractive error with the face of Ben Franklin, full date visible on the obverse and the Liberty Bell outline with mint mark visible on the reverse which is a rare combination and make this an even Rarer Double Denomination Error in Mint State.
1881 Trade Dollar Proof
1879-S Morgan Dollar
1881-CC Morgan Dollar
1882-O VAM-5 O over S Broken Morgan Dollar
1889-CC Morgan Dollar
1892-CC Morgan Dollar
1892-CC Morgan Dollar MS64 PCGS. Seems to be that fewer examples were held back in Government storage than most issues for this time period, which the 1892-CC was not heavily represented during the GSA sales in the 1960's and 70's. Thus, making the 1892-CC desirable in higher grades. PCGS POP 1,719 in 64 and 423 in higher grades.
1911-D $2.5 Indian Quarter Eagle
1911-D $2.5 Indian Quarter Eagle MS62 PCGS Secure with Strong D mintmark. Rich gold color, minimally abraded surfaces give this coin terrific eye appeal and freshness! A bold mintmark and great luster give this key-date issue higher demand in Mint State. PCGS POP only 529 in 62. Although there are 753 graded higher (PCGS) this might be the best price point for a mint state key.
1891-CC $10 Liberty Eagle
1883-CC $20 Liberty Double Eagle
1861 $2.5 Clark, Gruber & Co. Copper
1861 $2.5 Clark, Gruber & Co. Copper AU58 Brown NGC. K-9 Rare Die Trial Struck without the Collar. There are two different varieties of trials, struck without (K-9) and with the collar (K-9a). Very attractive problem free piece considering most were either destroyed damaged. These Colorado struck trials rarely come up for auction.
