Shield Nickel (1866-1889)
Liberty Nickel (1883-1913) 3841 1883 5C MS65 1614 530 112126437
1883 Liberty Head Nickel No CENTS MS65 { PCGS-2 } (Mar'2009) Nice luster on this OGH gem compliments a strike which is solid on this first-year issue original variety sans "CENTS". Some unscrupulous entrepreneurs took to gold-plating these coins and then using them to buy a couple cents worth of merchandise, hoping to get nearly $5 in change. This was the only US coin to be minted without a denomination, a situation which was quickly remedied.
Buffalo Nickel (1913-1938) 3921 1913 5C MS64 1247 897 49409136535

1867 Seated Liberty Dime PR64 { PCGS-3 } (Jun'1998) This was one of my "bucket coins", a "life-time goal" to acquire before I kick the bucket, that I started looking for when I was twelve. Business strikes have an extremely low mintage and my early attempts to find one with the help of a local dealer all failed; so, I eventually had to settle for proof. This piece has colorful toning with vivid turquoise on the reverse that the photo does not do justice..
Barber Dime (1892-1916) 4860 1912 10C MS64 281 228 71087166

Roosevelt Dime (1946-present) 5239 1964 10C PR70 81 52028
1964 Roosevelt Dime PR70 { PCGS-3 } (Nov'2004) Perfect mirrors provide a stark contrast to the frosted devices which may have just a bit of shine in the hair to keep this one from a cameo designation; but, it sure looks like cameo to me! Still, a perfect dime is a perfect dime!

Early Quarter (1796-1838) 25C
Liberty Seated Quarter (1838-1891) 25C

1964 Washington Quarter PR70 { PCGS-3 } (Nov'2004) Flawless perfection is enhanced by a very slight dusting of frost on the devices. Some marks on the holder and edges of the devices make the multiply reflective mirrors obvious. Perfect untoned silver luster abounds.

1799 Bust Silver Dollar Large Eagle XF45 { PCGS-3 } (Sep'1999) Pleasing old-silver color frames this eighteenth century silver dollar, nicely showing off its devices. The strike of the motto is weak on the reverse (to the right of the eagle) where some stars are faint in the field as well.
Liberty Seated Dollar (1836-1873) $1
Trade Dollar (1873-1885) T$1

1906 Gold $2.50 Liberty MS67 { PCGS-3 } (Jul'2007) Super clean surfaces with mint-fresh gold luster provides ample eye appeal for this very boldly struck premium quality gem quarter eagle. The vibrant honey-gold and lemon-gold surfaces retain the same flashy, powerful luster that they had a century ago, and the decisively struck devices remain just as sharp. Carefully preserved and practically flawless to the unaided eye.
Indian Head $2-1/2 (1908-1929) 7939 1908 $2.50 MS66 108 5 34661

The mint mark is bold and distinct. A couple of minor rubs on the upper reverse fields (behind the neck of the eagle) probably limit the grade, but other than these the fields are pristine, and free of any marks typical on the higher raised fields.
Early $10 (1795-1804) 8562 1799 $10 AU50 49 313 2091480

1907 Gold $10 Liberty (No Motto) MS66 { PCGS-3 } (Nov'2007) PQ Gem of this briefly produced gold type coin. The fields are exceptionally preserved, and the devices are also impressively smooth. Boldly struck aside from a hint of merging on the front talon of the back claw. The date has only a trace of strike doubling. A shimmering green-gold beauty from the first year of this attractive series. President Roosevelt opposed the inclusion of IN GOD WE TRUST, since money can be used for any purpose. Congress saw the matter differently.
Liberty Head $20 (1850-1907) 70000 1857-S $20 MS66 135 8 47447
1857-S Gold $20 Liberty (Type 1) MS66 Ex: S.S. Central America { PCGS-SSCA } (Apr'2008) Variety 20-A, Spiked Shield. A superlative example of this renowned shipwreck issue with wonderful orange-gold coloration to complement its gorgeous luster and enormous eye appeal. Preserved over 130 years submerged 8,000 feet in the Atlantic Ocean, this piece appears as it left the mint in San Francisco, with smooth unmarred satiny surfaces and boldly rendered devices. Although sea water and wood can create an acid which will damage gold coins, the calcium rich deposits on the ocean floor of this wreck site neutralized the acid and protected these coins. This is the commoner spiked shield variety with its prominent raised die gouge on the reverse in the field to the left of the lower shield, and visible in the photo. Over 5,000 1857-S double eagles were aboard when the ship sank; while, about half that number have been graded by PCGS and attributed to this wreck.
$20 St. Gaudens (1907-1933) 99142 1908 $20 MS68 98 10 11512
1908 Gold $20 Saint-Gaudens MS68 Ex: Wells Fargo Nev Gold { PCGS-3 } (Nov'2008) This bold well-struck specimen features relatively mark-free surfaces. A rich orange-gold patina covers satin surfaces with frosty-perfect fields. It is assured a natural place in history being the last year any US Coin did not bear the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST". Over Teddy Roosevelt's objections, Congress saw to it that the motto would be permanently restored, making it the law. Thanks to the cache of double eagles made available by the Wells Fargo discovery, a number of high grade examples became available to collectors and investors, of which this piece is a premium example. Liberty's hands and fingers, face, nose and lips and toes are well-defined and distinct. On the flip-side the sun is nearly unblemished and the eagle's feathers appear as the day they were struck.
