Coins as Art
Mike Sherman

It’s often been said that "no two coins are exactly alike." Modern silver and gold Eagles notwithstanding, it’s almost certainly true when it comes to vintage coins.


1864 50C PCGS PR64 CAMEO

The 1864 50C has super deep mirrors that bloom from all over. Both sides enjoy a light original gold color. The obverse has a very pretty and original ring of blue/pale violet colors around the rim. Miss Liberty and every detail are needle sharp in strike and are thickly frosted. If you are looking for a coin with beautiful eye appeal, this coin is a must-buy. Buy this and other quality coins.

Renowned journalist, Donn Pearlman, joins this issue to share one of his favorite stories of the "discovery" of a famous 1913 Liberty Head Nickel. Other in-depth articles include: ’Waves,’ by Mike Sherman; exploring the four "waves" of coin collecting from 1860 to the present.
