CAC. A honey-gold and rose obverse with a solid gold reverse combined with a rare PR66 Cameo make this Indian head cent a beautiful coin. PCGS 5/1 (12/09) PCGS 6/1 (05/15) EX: Five Point Collection

CAC. Rich gold, green, and blue-plum patina embraces each side of this immensely reflective proof three cent silver. Great eye appeal for early in the series and a simply gorgeous coin, appreciably better-preserved than the "PR65" label on the insert in the first-generation holder.

Liberty Head Nickel, No "CENTS" (1883) 83878 1883 5C PR67CA 25 361
CAC. This stunning piece fully merits the Cameo label, with excellent field-device contrast over the lightly gold-kissed surfaces. A real beauty in hand. PCGS 11/0 (11/09) PCGS 13/0 (11/13) PCGS 18/0 (05/15)
Liberty Head Nickel (1883-1913) 93908 1910 5C PR67DC 1 1 673164
CAC. 1/0 (12/13) This example has bold design elements with pristine surfaces, deeply mirrored fields, highly lustrous devices, and only a hint of delicate champagne toning.

Liberty Seated Dime, Legend, Arrows (1873-1874) 84770 1874 10C PR64CA 11 5 13474
CAC. Both sides are covered by deep, clear, clean (there are only a few light stray lines), and highly reflective mirrors. The contrast is vivid and there is NO toning anywhere. Miss Liberty and the details are boldly frosted and are fully struck.

Liberty Seated Quarter, No Motto (1840-1865) 85558 1862 25C PR64CA 7 7 475257
CAC. An incredible Choice Cameo proof, this Seated Liberty quarter is fully brilliant with nary a trace of toning on either side. All of the design motifs are boldly detailed with frosty silver luster inside a mirrored frame. Population: 5 in 64 Cameo, 5 finer (8/10). - 6/6 (5/13)
Liberty Seated Quarter, Arr & Rays (1853) 1853 25C

Liberty Seated Quarter, With Motto (1866-1891) 5585 1884 25C PR66 26 11 565313
CAC. An absolutely incredible Gem proof that has gorgeous gold, violet, and blue toning on each side. The devices are boldly defined and lustrous, with surrounding deep mirrored fields, creating excellent contrast. (Upgrade from PR65).
Liberty Seated Quarter, Motto, Arr (1873-1874) 25C
Barber Quarter (1892-1915) 5679 1893 25C PR66+ 1 23 51790
CAC. The 1893 was considered an afterthought by many contemporary collectors, after the issuance of the first-year 1892. But the 1893 is equally well produced and makes a wonderful type coin. This piece appears to us to have enough frost over the devices to warrant a Cameo designation, but apparently PCGS disagreed. The centers are mostly untoned and the margins are accented with rich rose and cobalt-blue toning. Population: 1 in 66+, 18 finer (1/11)
Washington Quarter, Silver (1940-1964) 5981 1942 25C PR67+ 15 12 18612195

Liberty Seated Half Dollar, Mot, Arr (1873-1874) 86435 1874 50C PR64CA 24 8 13552
CAC. Razor-sharp definition is apparent on all design elements, and the frosty devices contrast boldly with the deeply mirrored fields. The surfaces are virtually pristine and display attractive champagne-gold and cobalt-blue toning, with the color strongest on the reverse rims. Population: 17 in 64 Cameo, 1 finer (9/11).
Barber Half Dollar (1892-1915) 6550 1903 50C PR64 67 67 17872273
The mirrors are super clean, have amazing clarity, are deep, and of course have super strong reflectivity. They do appear glass like. A wild mix of ORIGINAL blue/navy/purple/violet/gold colors swirls all over. Miss Liberty and the details are sharply struck and do stand out. The eye appeal is terrific!

CAC. While the official mintage of 78 proof 1896 ten dollar coins might suggest that the date is relatively available, circumstantial evidence suggests that that output was an overreach. Not only were mintages of proof eagles lower in the next two years (69 and 67 pieces, respectively), but the estimated survival of the 1896 ten dollar proofs is close to that of the 1897, with the 1898 pieces seeing a spike in the survival rate despite a slipping mintage. PCGS suggests that 35 to 45 specimens survive for the 1896 and 1897 dates, compared to "40 to 50 known" for the 1898 issue. The PCGS Population Report lists 25 certification events for the 1896 ten dollar proof, 16 with Cameo contrast and nine labeled Deep Cameo. (It should be remembered that the period from 1896 to 1898 was a high-water mark for the cameo effect in U.S. silver and gold proof coinage.) A majority of the coins are in the PR64 range; among Deep Cameo pieces, this is one of just two certified by PCGS with three numerically finer as Deep Cameo, all graded PR66 (2/12). Effectively black-and-gold contrast is on display with this Deep Cameo Gem, thanks to sharply struck, thickly frosted devices paired with fields that combine so-called "orange-peel" texture with a great overall mirror finish. A thin, curving blemish just off the bridge of Liberty's nose and a depression to the left of star 9 are the most reliable pedigree markers. (Upgrade from 65).
