Bowers & Merena November 2009 Baltimore Show auction, lot # 3542 1856 Octagonal 50 Cents. BG-307. Rarity-5+. Liberty Head. MS-62 (PCGS). OGH. A richly original example with lovely khaki-gold color, the obverse also revealing light-rose highlights. Quite smooth in outward appearance, additional vibrancy to the surfaces is all that this coin would have needed to secure a Choice Mint State grade.

Per Heritage: 1853 50C Liberty Round 50 Cents, BG-418, Low R.7, MS64 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. This rare mule is a combination of the obverse of BG-415 and the reverse of BG-417. The latest BG reference has a roster of 13 examples with some probable duplication. We do not see Eliasberg on the roster, nor do we know any listing for California gold in the catalogs. The surfaces are bright overall and yellow-gold on the obverse with reddish patina on the reverse. Softly struck in the centers. (#10454)

Per Heritage 8/13/10 ANA Boston: 1873/2 25C Indian Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-792, Low R.7, MS64 PCGS. Breen and Gillio (2003) write: "This is a rare instance of a die actually used, then annealed, altered in date, and rehardened for later use (compare 432); this obverse probably lasted only an hour or two afterward." The dies would quickly shatter, and the obverse of this piece shows a number of die cracks. An appealing medium yellow example with deeply mirrored fields. (#10619)

One of the finest seen of this die pairing with strong frost on the devices and reflective fields. The dies show extensive wear and use with the finer details compromised by either improper engraving or simple wear.

There is a touch of copper-gold toning on both sides with a full and abundant strike. The expected clashing and lapping are present, and the coin was struck medal turn. This is the only MS-66 graded by PCGS and the finest seen by that service, a testament to the quality of this extraordinary specimen. PCGS Population: 1; none finer. Housed in an older green label PCGS holder. From the Classic Collection.

Bowers & Merena November 2009 Baltimore Show auction, lot # 3556 1871 Round 50 Cents. BG-1011. Rarity-2. Liberty Head. MS-67 (PCGS). Single-finest certified at PCGS for the type, this is a simply extraordinary "Cal Frac." Both sides are bathed in soft, satiny luster that mingles nicely with pretty medium-gold color. And while a bold-to-sharp strike is easily seen, we are unable to locate so much as a single detracting blemish. A gorgeous coin that is sure to please even the most exacting specialist.

1859 1/2 Liberty Round BG-1075. R-7 purchased from Bowers and Merena in June 2009. Lot # 3569. B&M Comments: A very rare and highly elusive type, BG-1075 was discovered as recently as 1979 by renowned California Fractional collector Jay Roe. In the 2003 edition of the book California Pioneer Fractional Gold by Walter Breen and Ronald J. Gillio, as many as seven different examples are pedigreed. We are unable to positively match the coin in this lot to any of those pieces, however, but we are confident that it is not the Norweb/Brilliant & Sieck, Cohen or Jay Roe specimens that Bowers and Merena have auctioned in the past. It is also probably not the specimen that sold as lot 2426 in our October 1996 sale of the Burhop and Davis Collections, but plate matching makes it difficult for us to make a positive match. As one of only two examples of BG-1075 to have received an MS-65 grade from PCGS (the other being the Jay Roe specimen), however, this coin is possibly the Stephen Richter specimen that appeared in a Kagin's Coin World ad in the July 13, 1998 issue. Radiant, mirror-finish fields form a splendid backdrop to satiny, boldly impressed devices. The color is a beautiful blend of orange-gold and green-gold shades that is fully appreciable in the absence of grade-limiting blemishes. An obviously important offering for the advanced collector of California Fractional gold.
