CAC - "Sharply struck on both sides, this pleasing GEM has a strong luster that comes out with a brilliant vibrance that glows in the light and underlies a sumptuous, original patination. Golds, blues, and greens blend over pearly-silver surfaces. The design elements are very sharp overall with only some minor and typical weaknesses in the central devices of the eagle. Struck from clashed dies, parts of the reverse wreath can be seen in the field in front of Liberty's portrait. The eye appeal is exceptional and the quality is stunning!" Ex. Oliver Jung and Bruce Morelan Collection.

CAC - "Both sides of this remarkably well preserved 4 Berries dime offer violet, sky blue and golden pastels on highly lustrous and satiny surfaces. Liberty's portrait stands out with bold to sharp definition. The hair detail, in fact, is just a few strands shy of complete. The reverse delivers full wing feathers for the eagle and very well struck stars. Intriguing die clash (as made) is observable around the central motifs. Exceptionally attractive and among the finest examples extant for the type, issue and variety". Ex. Douglas C. Kaselitz Collection

1797 50C MS65+ PCGS #6060

CAC - "Beautiful and original multicolored toning cascades over both sides of this stunning high-end Gem. Gold and silver-gray coloration imbued with whispers of soft bluish-violet, orange, and russet predominate, accented with splashes of deep electric-blue, violet, reddish-gold, and purple at the upper-right and right obverse and on the lower-right quadrant of the reverse. Reflective prooflike fields highlight the frosty central motifs, yielding a pleasing degree of contrast on each side. The design elements are sharply struck, including individual strands of Liberty's hair and curls. The eagle's wing and tail feathers are bold, as are the talons. A curving, as-made lintmark is visible just above Liberty's cleavage, and light horizontal adjustment marks at the left and right reverse border do not affect the clarity of the letters in UNITED and AMERICA. The few minuscule marks that are visible only under a glass are insignificant and unobtrusive. Indeed, the surfaces on both sides are remarkably well-preserved." This easily one of the two finest 1797 halves certified. Ex: Farish Baldenhofer Collection (Stack's, 11/1955), lot 676; Norweb Collection (Bowers and Merena, 11/1988), lot 3027; Dr. Haig A.

1833 50C MS68 PCGS #6163

CAC - One of two MS68 coins for the Type at PCGS (4/24). "The overall color scheme is one of reddish-orange patina yielding to vivid electric-blue highlights at the denticles. The right obverse, however, displays mottled sea-green overtones intermingled with silver-tinged near-brilliance. The impression is expertly centered on the planchet with fully evident denticulation bordering devices that are sharply delineated in virtually all areas. Lustrous with a softly frosted texture, the surfaces are uncommonly blemish-free."

1942 50C PR68+ PCGS #6642

CAC - "Blinding, chrome-like mirrors beam with a quick-silver, liquid mercury brilliance and reflection. The mirrors are deep and offer the utmost clarity and are the epitome of cleanliness! Neon gold and blue iridescent toning is dusted across the surfaces deeper at the peripheries and more untoned on the centers. The flashy fields really bring out all the beautiful colors, especially as you twirl the coin in a light. The sharply struck devices are glossy and stand out boldly." Ex: YOUNG-MADISON

1795 $1 Draped Bust, Centered MS65+ PCGS #6858

CAC - "This Gem is extremely well struck, especially evident in Liberty's hair and on the eagle's breast. The highly lustrous silver surfaces are nearly flawless, with only a few light reverse adjustment marks. A few trivial field marks are visible when the coin is closely examined, but they have no effect on the overall eye appeal. The luster is bright and softly frosted, with shimmering, reflective fields." Ex. The Bob R. Simpson Collection, Part II

1849 $1 J-116 MS62 PCGS #11505

CAC - High R.7 - Struck in gold-silver-copper alloy with a plain edge. The only CAC endorsed example. These extremely rare patterns were had cut by James Longacre and not die struck. This is the only U.S. pattern that was hand engraved. The necessity for hand-engraving and the larger history of these pieces is covered in an in-depth article in The Numismatist in October 2011, written by Ed Rector. In short, these patterns were emergency issues that were hand-engraved to simulate what a struck coin would look like with a square hole in it. They were needed in a hurry because a lame-duck Congressman from North Carolina, James Iver McKay, was pressing hard for the issuance of the pieces (mostly as an outlet for the gold mines from his native state). By January 26, 1849 Congressman McKay was in possession of one of these pieces. On January 30, six additional specimens were produced and sent by Mint Director Robert Maskell Patterson to other Congressmen. "The surfaces of this piece are bright with significant speckling on each side, presumably from the copper in the alloy." Ex. The Bob R. Simpson Collection.

"Both obverse and reverse are splendid to behold, brilliant deep mirror surfaces, silver, overlaid with natural toning. At the center is light gold, changing to magenta, then to blue, no doubt the result of having resided in a Wayte Raymond "National” album page for a few decades." A truly beautiful coin.

1885 T$1 Trade PR63+ CAM PCGS #87065

CAC - The Amon Carter Specimen. "One simply does not expect a coin in PR63 to display the level of eye appeal generated by the Carter-Simpson 1885 Trade dollar. The coin is Plus designated by PCGS, but what is perhaps most telling about its quality is the fact that this is the only 1885 Trade dollar with CAC endorsement. Traditional lavender and lilac toning surrounds the peripheries, ceding to sunset-gold that warms the interiors. Slight strike softness on stars 5 to 7 is characteristic of the issue, but this piece is both significantly sharper than the Eliasberg coin and slightly sharper than the Olsen coin -- the two higher-grade pieces. The fields glimmer with watery reflectivity. Faint hairlines can be discerned with a loupe, but the toning effectively obscures them from the unaided eye. Appreciable cameo contrast fulfills the eye appeal on each side in equal measure, accenting not only the central devices but also the stars and border legends." I had the privilege of seeing the Olsen specimen when it was a NGC PR66 and this coin shows a much stronger strike and much nicer eye appeal.
