This is a gorgeous near-Gem that is ideal for the type collector seeking a high-end Bust half.

1858 1C Small Letters MS65 PCGS #2020

CAC. You do not have to tilt this coin to see all its beautiful colors. Warm shades of violet/golden brown/amber blaze from both sides (on the image the coin may appear slightly speckled-it is not). Overall, the surfaces are extremely clean and radiate with an intense luster. Every detail is sharply struck and appears boldly. No matter how picky you are, this coins quality and color WILL impress you! Not an easy date to find in true problem free GEM. PCGS 51, NGC 71. PCGS has graded only 8 coins higher.

1862 3CS MS66+ PCGS #3680

CAC. This Civil War Premium Gem has mildly prooflike fields and only a hint of tan toning. No marks are visible, and the strike is decidedly above average. PCGS has certified just 11 pieces finer (10/09).

1854 H10C Arrows MS66+ PCGS #4358

CAC. Some light die clashing (mint made) are on both sides. A booming luster shows the original colors of blue, gold, and green that swirl all over this awesome coin with an exceptional strike.

1834 10C Large 4 MS64 PCGS #4526

CAC. JR-5, R.1. The 4 in the date shows the crossbar partially broken off, with a sharp pointed fragment still visible. On the reverse, the last A in AMERICA is joined to the C and to the arrowhead. The lustrous surfaces of this near-Gem display splashes of forest-green and lavender, more extensive and deeper on the obverse. This sharply struck piece has been well cared for. Population: 18 in 64, 11 finer (11/11).

1891-S 10C MS66 PCGS #4708

CAC. Ex: Eliasberg. The obverse die is worn and the reverse die is crisp with evidence of a repunched mintmark. This splendid Premium Gem has attractive medium gold toning over frosty luster. Population: 7 in 66, 2 finer (8/10). Ex: Chapman Brothers (5/1900); J.M. Clapp; Clapp Estate; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 1239.

1893 25C PR66+ PCGS #5679

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)

1917 25C Type 1 MS67FH PCGS #5707

CAC. Light gold toning, a needle-sharp strike, and dynamic cartwheel luster confirm the high grade of this exceptional Type One quarter. Nearly devoid of marks, and practically unobtainable any finer. Population: 60 in 67 Full Head, 2 finer (3/12).

1827 50C Square Base 2 MS64+ PCGS #6144

(CAC) O-131, R.2. The obverse with die line above the LI of LIBERTY, the reverse with "Leaning 0" in the denomination. This is a gorgeous near-Gem that is ideal for the type collector seeking a high-end Bust half. The strike is solid, if a trifle incomplete on the highest design elements, and the luster is warm silver overall with gold and violet elements at the borders. Purchased as MS64.

1877 50C MS65+ PCGS #6355

CAC. The luster highlights the killer ring of sea royal blue which opens into violet and fiery tangerine centers. Splashes of prooflike mirrors are vivid all over. Under the colors are a few OLD light marks, but nothing that's visible or detracting from the grade. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have full strikes.(Upgraded from MS65)

1903 50C PR64 PCGS #6550

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!

1878 T$1 Trade PR63CAM PCGS #87058

CAC. Patinated in vivid, iridescent shades of green, blue, and lavender, with deeply reflective fields beneath the toning. The boldly impressed devices ensure profound cameo contrast. Population: 31 in 63 Cameo, 25 finer (10/10).
