The January 2008 Orlando Rarities Sale Session One

by Bowers and Merena Auctions
Tue, Jan  8, 2008  6:00 PM   Eastern
Welcome to Bowers and Merena's premier auction of 2008. There is a 17% buyer's premium on all lots.
1793 Half Cent. B-2, C-2. Rarity-3. Vf-25 (pcgs). 1793 Half Cent. B-2, C-2. Rarity-3. Vf-25 (pcgs).

1793 Half Cent. B-2, C-2. Rarity-3. Vf-25 (pcgs).

Lot #1 (Sale Order 1 of 666)

The United States' first Half Cent, the 1793 is also important as a one-year type. It is the only issue in the Liberty Cap series of 1793-1797 with the obverse portrait facing to the left. The problem as far as most collectors in today's market are concerned is that there are simply not enough examples of the 1793 from which to choose. Indeed, survivors of this 35,334-piece delivery are very scarce-to-rare in all grades, particularly when free of significant impairments.
This is a pleasing coin in the context of the assigned grade, the surfaces bathed in warm, even, orange-brown patina. The rims are softly defined, and moderate wear is noted, but the focal features are well outlined with bolder definition in the more recessed areas. There are no individually mentionable abrasions, which is just one more reason why this coin would make a pleasing addition to a circulated type set. The reverse impression is rotated approximately 10% clockwise from exact coin turn.
PCGS# 1000.
David Hall, PCGS Founder and Director:
"One of the classic early American issues… A lovely VF -25, attractive light chocolate surfaces… beautiful color for the grade… I believe this coin is conservatively graded…"

1816 Large Cent. N-2. Rarity-1. Ms-64 Bn (pcgs).

Lot #2 (Sale Order 2 of 666)

Likely from the Randall Hoard, examples of the 1816 N-2 can be found at most Mint State levels of preservation, save for the Gem designation. That said, this near-Gem will make a lovely addition to any type set. Satiny, abundant mint luster careens over both sides, and though possessed of a mahogany-brown tint throughout, there are flickers of orange-red hue along the edges. Boldly impressed with a bit of incompleteness to the left-facing obverse stars, a couple of variegated dollops of color appear in the fields. The reverse is rotated 50 degrees clockwise, as noted on the PCGS holder, though this is not an uncommon feature for this variety.
PCGS# E1591.
David Hall, PCGS Founder and Director:
"This coin is graded 64-Brown by PCGS. If you do look at the coin, it has some tinges of original red… it's borderline red/brown…"

1846 Large Cent. N-18. Rarity-1. Small Date. Ms-62 Bn (ngc).

Lot #3 (Sale Order 3 of 666)

This coin is incorrectly attributed as an example of the Newcomb-11 die and Medium Date Guide Book varieties on the NGC insert. Both sides exhibit even copper-brown patina with the lightest pinkish-copper tinting evident at direct angles. The strike is generally bold by the standards of the type, although we note that most of the obverse stars are blunt and lack centrils. With no bothersome abrasions or carbon spots, a somewhat subdued sheen probably explains why this coin did not secure a Choice Mint State grade.

1856 Flying Eagle Cent. Snow-9. Proof-63 (pcgs).

Lot #4 (Sale Order 4 of 666)

According to Flying Eagle and Indian Cent specialist Rick Snow (2001), most 1856 Flying Eagle Cents encountered in today's market are examples of the Snow-9 die marriage. The author further opines that this variety is a restrike from 1858-1860 that was produced to satisfy numismatic demand for this historic first-year issue in the small-size Cent series. Almost certainly presented to a collector or someone else interested in caring for the piece at the time of delivery, the coin in this lot has survived the passage of time without acquiring any contact marks of note. Medium-tan surfaces are a bit subdued, however, as explains the Proof-63 designation. Sharply impressed from the dies, and housed in an older PCGS holder with a green insert. Two swirls of slightly deeper color at the lower-obverse and upper-reverse borders are mentioned for accuracy.
PCGS# 2037.

1857 Flying Eagle Cent. Snow-4. Ms-64 (pcgs).

Lot #5 (Sale Order 5 of 666)

This is the plate coin for the Snow-4 variety on page 48 of Rick Snow's 2001 book The Flying Eagle & Indian Cent Attribution Guide, 2nd Edition, Volume 1: 1856-1858. A scarce near-Gem, both sides exhibit lovely medium-tan color with highlights of rose tinting evident at all angles. Smartly impressed from the dies, with surfaces that are nearly smooth enough to warrant a full Gem grade.
PCGS# 2016.Snow-4 is a Doubled Die Obverse variety with doubling most readily evident on the eagle's eye, neck and the letters UNITE and ERICA in the legend. The hub variety is the broken wingtip.
David Hall, PCGS Founder and Director:
"It's graded MS-64 by PCGS. It is a really nice example for the grade. This coin has virtually perfect surfaces and it's absolutely 100% fully-struck… An outstanding coin for the grade…"

Direct angles call forth shimmering reflectivity in the fields, but not even close inspection reveals a distracting blemish. Sharply struck.

Lot #13 (Sale Order 13 of 666)

The 1865 is a popular issue among Indian Cent date collectors due to the low-mintage, conditionally challenging status of the year's business strike delivery. The proof 1865 is also a scarce early bronze issue in its own right, particularly when offered with fully intact mint color. This is just such a coin, both sides drenched in warm medium-orange color that speaks volumes about the originality. The devices are fully struck, and they are set apart from modest reflectivity in the fields by a satiny texture. There are no sizeable or individually conspicuous blemishes, as befits the Gem grade.

1914-d Lincoln Cent. Ms-66 Bn (ngc).

Lot #35 (Sale Order 34 of 666)

The 1914-D has an original mintage of 1.1 million pieces. This is certainly a limited total for a 20th century issue in the U.S. small Cent series. Even so, the 1914-D is not the lowest-mintage Lincoln Cent, as both the 1909-S V.D.B. and 1931-S were produced in fewer numbers. The '09-S V.D.B. was widely saved as a first-year issue, and the '31-S was hoarded to a large extent during the Depression. Fortune was not as kind to the 1914-D, however, and most examples of this Denver Mint issue slipped quietly into circulation. Today, this is the rarest Lincoln Cent in Mint State discounting errors such as the 1917 Doubled Die Obverse and 1922 No D.
A find even in BU, this lot offers a premium-quality Gem with a temptingly low certified population. Even grayish-brown patina blankets smooth, virtually pristine surfaces. There are also some pale-gold and light-orange undertones that are most vivid at the rims. A sharp strike is free of criticism, and the eye appeal is unsurpassable for a '14-D Cent with fully toned surfaces. Exquisite in all regards, and destined for inclusion in the finest Lincoln Cent set.

Combined PCGS and NGC Population: only 2 in MS-66 BN; and none are finer with any color designation.

Long heralded as a key-date issue, the 1914-D has a limited original mintage of 1.1 million pieces. Whereas most examples slipped quietly into circulation, this BU representative was set aside at the time of issue. The surfaces survived without acquiring any blemish of note, but the texture is a bit subdued. Even so, the technical quality would seem to suggest a Choice Mint State grade.

Definitely a respectable example of this popular 20th century Mint error, both sides exhibit even medium-brown toning. The reverse is expectably bold in detail for the die pair, while the obverse is noticeably soft. All major features on the latter side are still discernible, however, and neither side reveals an abrasion of note. The PCGS holder is an older variant with a green insert.

Lot #41 (Sale Order 40 of 666)

Thanks to the erroneous story that Henry Ford was willing to give a new car to anyone who could provide him with a genuine example, the 1944 Copper Cents are perhaps the most famous Mint errors in U.S. coinage history. Although less well known among the general public, their 1944-dated counterparts struck on steel planchets are nearly as rare and no less desirable within numismatic circles. As with the 1943 Copper Cents, the 1944 Steel Cents were struck on planchets leftover from the previous year's production. In this case, the leftover planchets are zinc-plated steel, which the Mint officially used for only one year during World War II before switching back to bronze planchets.
1944-dated Steel Cents are known from all three Mints that were operational that year. Examples from the Philadelphia Mint are most common, but they are still very rare in an absolute sense with perhaps just 27 pieces known. The Denver Mint comes in second in terms of rarity with no more than 10 coins believed to exist. The rarest is the 1944-S, of which only a single example struck on a zinc-plated steel planchet has been confirmed.
This is the first 1944-D Steel Cent that this cataloger can remember handling, all other examples of this error that have passed through our hands being products of the Philadelphia Mint. None of the known examples grade lower than EF, although we still maintain that this coin is one of the finer pieces available in today's market. Both sides possess even steel-gray color over boldly impressed devices. There is some pale-golden tinting here and there on the reverse, but this color is only discernible at direct light angles. While the surfaces are a bit subdued, there are few abrasions within the context of the assigned grade. An extremely shallow, staccato-like graze through the top of Lincoln's head should serve as a useful pedigree mark. This is the most important Mint error that we have offered in quite some time, and it is a coin that will

Lot #45 (Sale Order 44 of 666)

A low-mintage issue with just 65,000 pieces struck, the 1872 Two-Cent piece is a highly sought-after delivery in the series. Moreover, this represents the final year of production for the denomination, making it a popular date with type collectors. Found in an older-generation PCGS holder, this coin has bright, mostly prooflike surfaces. Fragments of darker coloration appear here and there, noteworthy against their backdrop of mint-orange coloration. Free from detracting marks and sharply impressed for the grade.

Lot #46 (Sale Order 45 of 666)

The 1851-O Trime comes under exceptional pressure from a number of fronts. Chief among these reasons are the following: 1) this is the first year of issue for the series; and 2) this is the lone O-mint for the entire 24-year production. That said, this is also an aesthetically pleasing piece, with plenty of frosty mint luster and bold detail to the designs. Possessed by a bit of golden color, we note a grouping of small abrasions above the roman numerals on the reverse as the sole grade-limiting components.

Awash in satin luster, both sides emit a pleasing golden-apricot patina.

1867 Shield Nickel. Rays. Proof-65 (pcgs).

Lot #58 (Sale Order 57 of 666)

This enigmatic issue is the rarest proof in the Shield Nickel series of 1866-1883. We say "enigmatic" because the Philadelphia Mint did not prepare minor-coin proof sets in 1867, nor did it include examples of the 1867 Rays Nickel in the silver proof sets. Nevertheless, Mint personnel did prepare a limited number of specimens, probably at the request of well-connected numismatists that already owned a proof 1866 but still desired another example of the short-lived Rays Shield Nickel type.
Exactly how many proof 1867 Rays Nickels were struck is also a mystery, as no records have surfaced that provide a definite mintage figure. The 2008 Guide Book has an estimated mintage of 25+ pieces. The late Walter Breen, however, was able to trace only 12-15 distinct examples. Based on his research, Gloria Peters and Cynthia Mohon (The Complete Guide to Shield & Liberty Head Nickels, 1995) have arrived at an estimated mintage of just 15-25 coins--a range with which we are in complete agreement.
It has been nearly five years since this writer has handled an example of this exceedingly rare proof issue. This coin is more beautiful than the last specimen that this cataloger has seen. Blushes of pinkish-lilac and apricot iridescence adorn the obverse shield, the balance of that side exhibiting delicate golden-silver tinting. The reverse has a 50-50 mix of pinkish-tan iridescence and silver-white brilliance. Fully struck and expertly preserved, this lovely Gem is housed in an older PCGS holder with a green insert.
PCGS# 3818.PCGS Population: 17; 3 finer. We caution bidders that PCGS and NGC population data is not an accurate indicator of this issue's rarity because the figures are undoubtedly inflated by resubmissions.

Lot #59 (Sale Order 58 of 666)

What can we say? When it rains, it pours. This is the second example of this rare, highly elusive proof Shield Nickel that this writer has been tasked with describing for this sale. Perhaps this is a first for a numismatic cataloger? Both sides offer razor-sharp striking detail to all elements of the design. While there are no outwardly noticeable hairlines or contact marks, the surfaces are subdued beneath an overlay of slate-gray patina that accounts for the Proof-62 designation. If the Gem in the previous lot is too rich for your blood, this lower-grade, yet still problem-free proof 1867 Rays, might fit more comfortably into your numismatic budget.

This is the only proof 1872 Shield Nickel certified with a Deep/Ultra Cameo finish at both major grading services, and it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful examples of the issue available in today's market. The devices possess razor-sharp striking detail and a satiny texture that sets them apart from deep pools of reflectivity in the fields. Both sides are untoned, which allows ready appreciation of the bold cameo contrast. There are also no grade-limiting blemishes, and the eye appeal is nothing short of breathtaking.
PCGS# 93826.

Examples of the 1883-dated Shield Nickel are popular with collectors for their status as the final year of issue for the series. With this in mind we offer the present Gem, a coin that will make an absolutely top-notch type coin. Fully untoned (though a couple droplets of opaque hue appear on the reverse), this piece is free from detraction, whether striking incompleteness, handling marks or copper spots.

Lot #65 (Sale Order 64 of 666)

A rare, key-date issue, the 1885 has an original business strike mintage of just 1.4 million pieces. This is the third-rarest issue of the type in Mint State, and it is an important find even in Choice grades. An even more desirable Gem, the present example exhibits razor-sharp striking detail to every single element of the design. Both sides are wonderfully original with mottled reddish-copper, lavender and silver-blue shades. Satiny mint luster and smooth, nearly blemish-free surfaces enhance already strong eye appeal.

A bit of roughness in the planchet at the lower-left reverse wreath is as struck, and moderate softness to the detail is anything but uncommon for a Mint State Liberty Nickel.

The same year that saw Coxey's Army march on Washington D.C. in what is arguably the nation's first populist protest display also saw an 1894 Liberty Nickel production that is today the fourth-lowest original mintage for the series at just 5.4 million pieces. The most attractive feature of this piece is likely the luster, which is effulgent and free flowing, imparting ample cartwheel visuals. Boldly if not sharply impressed, we note scattered flecking of carbon on either side and a warm, pale-rose coloration throughout.

Lot #70 (Sale Order 69 of 666)

Although plentiful in an absolute sense, many Liberty Nickels are difficult to locate in the finest Mint State grades. The prime culprit seems to be poor striking detail that leaves the top of Liberty's head, the obverse stars and the lower-left reverse wreath more-or-less incomplete. This Superb 1902 is a noteworthy exception, however, with crisp striking detail in all areas. Fully lustrous and essentially brilliant, this coin is solidly in the Condition Census for the issue.

This is an important Gem whose surfaces are uncommonly smooth in all areas. The strike is well above average, and there really is no mentionable softness of detail save perhaps on the reverse at the lower-left portion of the wreath. Tannish-gray in tone, the obverse contrasts a bit with a more slate-gray reverse.

1913-d Buffalo Nickel. Type Ii. Ms-68 (ngc).

Lot #76 (Sale Order 75 of 666)

A scarce issue in all grades, the 1913-D has a relatively limited mintage of 4.1 million pieces. The majority of these coins entered circulation at the time of delivery, and not only because they were needed in commercial channels. The contemporary public had largely satisfied their desire to save examples of the new design with the three 1913 Type I issues, so by the time the 1913-D Type II left the Mint there was less demand for the coins as numismatic novelties. (Coin collecting was not as advanced in 1913 as it is today, and it seems likely that many contemporary collectors--to say nothing of the average non-collector--would have seen little distinction between the Type I and Type II designs.) The typical 1913-D Type II Nickel offered in today's market grades VF or EF, the paucity of lower-grade survivors being due to the fact that the date disappeared from the Native American's shoulder after even a relatively short stint in circulation. Mint State examples are elusive, and most grade no finer than MS-64.
While we would have been honored to offer a 1913-D Type II Nickel that grades MS-65 or MS-66, the presence of this Superb MS-68 represents a once-in-a-lifetime cataloging opportunity. This is the single-finest survivor of this issue known to PCGS and NGC, and it is one of the most awe-inspiring Buffalo Nickels of any issue that this writer has ever handled. Both sides possess full striking detail and soft, billowy, satin-textured luster. There is not even a single trivial blemish to report. As if these attributes were not impressive enough, we are pleased to report that both sides possess beautiful toning in mottled shades of gold, orange, pink, apricot and powder-blue colors. The most vivid highlights exist in a crescent along the lower-left obverse border. A coin that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, this exquisite 1913-D Type II belongs in the finest collection of Buffalo Nickels ever formed.

For reasons already mentioned, this production is coveted at all levels of preservation, the present piece in a solid collector grade.

Lot #87 (Sale Order 86 of 666)

A highly elusive die marriage, LM-4 is the rarest variety of the 1797 Draped Bust Half Dime. This is a pleasing VF with reddish-apricot undertones that shine powerfully through an overlay of smoky-gray patina. All major design elements are clearly discernible despite moderate wear, and there is also quite a bit of bold-to-sharp detail remaining in the more protected areas of the design. Clearly, the strike was sharp by the standards of the early United States Mint. Smooth in outward appearance, this coin should be of obvious importance to the numismatist that specializes in die varieties of Bust coinage. The PCGS holder is an older variant with a green insert.

1857-o Seated Liberty Half Dime. Ms-65 (ngc).

Lot #92 (Sale Order 91 of 666)

As a Gem O-mint Seated Half Dime, this is a coin that will have no difficulty finding its way into a high-end type set. Struck the same year as the S.S. Central America was lost, this piece is largely untoned, though the eye does detect a flickering of rose-gold iridescence at select light angles. Sharply impressed from the dies, we are unable to locate an overly detracting blemish, yet each side bears a minute swirl of darker color.

Lot #95 (Sale Order 94 of 666)

The 1867 is a low-mintage Half Dime with just 8,625 pieces produced, 625 coins of which are proofs. The present specimen possesses razor-sharp striking detail to softly frosted devices. Mirror-finish fields provide noticeable cameo contrast, this despite a bit of light golden-gray iridescence that yields to brilliance at direct angles. Solidly graded as a Gem with no bothersome contact marks.

Lot #96 (Sale Order 95 of 666)

The 1868 is a popular proof Seated Half Dime among date collectors due to a limited mintage of 88,600 pieces for the identically dated business strike. This is a memorable example with richly frosted devices that appear to float atop illimitable depth of reflectivity in the fields. An untoned Gem that is also free of distracting contact marks.

1869 Seated Liberty Half Dime. Proof-66 (ngc).

Lot #97 (Sale Order 96 of 666)

If you prefer coins that are both expertly preserved and originally toned, this premium-quality Gem is awaiting your bid. The surfaces are virtually pristine, neither side revealing any distracting or grade-limiting contact marks to the naked eye. The strike is also a praiseworthy attribute, the devices sharply defined from the dies. A uniformly mirrored finish and bright golden-apricot undertones radiate through an overlay of mostly blue-gray patina. The dominant toning scheme does yield to a circle of soft pinkish-apricot iridescence in the center of the reverse. Conditionally rare, and of even further desirability, as such.

The 1872-S is the penultimate S-mint issue in the U.S. Half Dime series, and the present near-Gem is housed in an older NGC holder with a thick border and large hologram. Both sides are richly toned in charcoal-copper patina that lightens in shade a bit on the reverse. That side also reveals more vibrant undertones in gold, blue-gray and pink shades, although the first two colors are also present on the obverse. Sharply struck and free of outwardly noticeable abrasions. The Mintmark Below Bow Guide Book variety is not listed on the NGC insert.

Lot #99 (Sale Order 98 of 666)

An exceedingly rare variety, JR-2 is the most difficult die marriage to locate among the four reported for the 1798 Draped Bust Dime. In fact, only about 5% of extant 1798 Dimes are examples of this variety. This is a richly toned coin with charcoal-blue peripheral color around silver-gray centers. Wear is expectably heavy for the assigned grade, but all major design elements are at least outlined in definition. The surfaces are a bit scuffy, but there are no sizeable or individually bothersome abrasions. Definitely an important find for the numismatist that specializes in die marriages of Bust silver coinage.

1805 Draped Bust Dime. Jr-2. Rarity-2. 4 Berries. Vg-10 (pcgs).

Lot #100 (Sale Order 99 of 666)

Since there are just two die marriages for the year, it seems a surprising error for the die cutter to have accidentally punched too many berries onto one of the reverse dies, yet with employees being fined for drinking on the job and other mischievous behavior during the early days of the U.S. Mint, we suppose this error could very well have been made under such circumstances. Whatever the case, the present JR-2 has just 4 berries on the reverse olive branch. The coin as a whole has seen extensive circulation, yet it is overall attractive. Evenly worn, the devices and legends stand in generally bold definition, save for some incompleteness to UNITED on the reverse. Abrasions appear throughout but none warrant individual mention.
PCGS# 4477.
David Hall, PCGS Founder and Director:
"The important thing when you are buying the lower circulated grades is that you are not just looking at the wear on the coin, but you're looking at the eye appeal…this is a very attractive coin. "

This important Gem is similar in quality to the example sold as lot 1220 in Stack's 1981 Bareford Collection Sale that the John Reich Collectors Society describes as "finest seen" for the die variety. Both sides are drenched in richly original, charcoal-copper patina. The color lightens a bit in the centers, particularly on the reverse where a blush of pinkish-apricot iridescence is present over and around the eagle. Direct angles also reveal faint golden-blue highlights in select peripheral areas. Boldly struck by the standards of the type, and free of distracting abrasions.

Lot #103 (Sale Order 102 of 666)

This is an enchanting representative of the variety that obviously represents one of the first impressions from this die marriage. Both sides are fully prooflike in finish with shimmering, glassy-looking fields. The devices, on the other hand, have more of a satiny texture that provides modest cameo-like effects as the coin rotates under a light. Liberty's portrait is the best-struck device, but the eagle is also quite well produced with the exception of the talons. The obverse stars are softly impressed and lack centrils, as typically seen in example of the 1827 JR-13 variety. Mottled olive-gray obverse toning yields to an overlay of smoky-gray patina on the reverse.NGC Census (all die varieties): just 6 in all grades with a PL designation.

Lot #104 (Sale Order 103 of 666)

This is a scarce variety that is usually encountered well worn. According to the John Reich Collectors Society (1984) the finest example seen is an MS-63 sold by Stack's on November 4, 1983. We are pleased to offer this important MS-64 for the consideration of bidders that specialize in Capped Bust coinage. The central devices are generally well struck, although the eagle's talons on the reverse are a bit blunt. Additionally, many of the obverse stars are flat and lack centrils. Slightly mottled olive-tan highlights overlay a base of soft, pearl-gray patina. There are no outwardly noticeable abrasions, and the surfaces may have secured an even higher grade were the mint luster a bit more vibrant in sheen.

A few blushes of iridescent toning drift toward the borders, but the outward appearance on both sides is one of silver-white brilliance. Boldly, if not sharply struck, with no abrasions that would seem to preclude an even higher grade.

1839-o Seated Liberty Dime. No Drapery. Greer-103. Large O. Ms-67 (pcgs).

Lot #108 (Sale Order 107 of 666)

Although this issue's original mintage of 1.3 million pieces is fairly generous for an early-date Seated Dime, survivors are only common in circulated grades below EF. Clearly, the 1839-O saw considerable commercial use throughout the antebellum South. We do not believe that many coins were deliberately set aside at or near the time of issue, this despite the fact the 1839-O is one of only two New Orleans Mint issues of the Stars Obverse, No Drapery type. Coin collecting in the United States was in its infancy in the years prior to the 1860, and what few numismatists there were lived in the Northern states and were not at all interested in the new mintmarked coinage being produced in the South. With circumstances such as these, it should come as no surprise to read that the 1839-O is a rare issue in all Mint State grades. In fact, Brian Greer (1992) assigns this issue a Rarity-5 rating in Mint State--a rating that advances to Rarity-5+ when we consider only those examples of the Large O variety.
This coin is tied for second finest-known honors among surviving 1839-O Dimes irrespective of variety. It is a simply amazing coin with full, vibrant, satiny luster and not even a single distracting abrasion. The surfaces are originally toned, the obverse with vivid orange-copper and cobalt-blue iridescence at the rims. The reverse is even more colorful, halos of cobalt-blue and lavender-pink peripheral toning yielding to streaks of medium-orange toning in the center. Sharply struck throughout, this Condition Census Superb Gem belongs in the finest collection of Seated Liberty and/or New Orleans Mint coinage ever assembled.
PCGS# 4572.
Combined PCGS and NGC Population: only 2; with a single MS-68 graded higher at the latter service.

1859-s Seated Liberty Dime. Au-55 (ngc).

Lot #111 (Sale Order 110 of 666)

Produced in an era when there was essentially no numismatic interest in mintmarked coinage, the 1859-S Seated Dime is an issue that saw heavy commercial use in the Western United States through at least the 1860s. When we consider that only 60,000 pieces were originally produced, it is obvious that this is a very rare issue in today's market. Very, very few coins have survived even in the lowest circulated grades, and Mint State examples are exceedingly rare. In fact, the 1859-S rivals the 1856-S for top-rarity honors in the Stars Obverse Seated Dime series.
Minimally worn with plenty of bold-to-sharp detail remaining, this original-looking example displays tannish-gray patina that appears to drift toward the borders. A few scattered ticks are noted for the obverse, but the reverse is markedly smoother with no sizeable or individually conspicuous abrasions. This coin represents an extremely important bidding opportunity for collectors that specialize in Seated Liberty coinage.

Satiny in sheen with fewer outwardly distracting abrasions than one might expect for the assigned grade. Produced to the extent of just 172,500 pieces, the 1861-S is a heavily circulated issue that is anything but common in Mint State.

1871-cc Seated Liberty Dime. Au-50 (ngc).

Lot #113 (Sale Order 112 of 666)

Although the facility struck its first Quarters, Half Dollars and Silver Dollars in 1870, the initial batch of CC-mint Dimes are dated 1871. A mere 20,100 pieces were produced, and the issue suffered grievously in circulation. Not only were the coins heavily used as a medium of exchange on the frontier, but the surfaces wore down quicker than usual because the Carson City Mint often shortened the minting process by using pure Comstock Lode silver. Any problem-free example is a rare coin that merits a Rarity-5 assessment. This is definitely one of the key-date issues in the long-lived Seated Dime series.
Withdrawn from circulation after acquiring only light highpoint wear, this impressive example retains plenty of bold definition to both sides. The surfaces are remarkably well preserved with no corrosion, pitting or even singularly distracting abrasions. Rich steel-gray patina envelops both sides and lightens in shade a bit over the devices and in the open fields. Easily among the finest circulated examples of the rare 1871-CC Seated Dime available to today's specialized collectors.

1893-o Barber Dime. Ms-66 * (ngc).

Lot #122 (Sale Order 121 of 666)

The second year of Barber Dimes saw deliveries from the Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Francisco mints. Without doubt, the O-mint issue is the most challenging of the three at most levels of preservation, as a glance at the Guide Book will inform any viewer. This comes as little surprise given a mintage figure of just 1.7 million pieces, but the present Gem is a simply phenomenal example of this already limited production. It has indeed won the * from NGC for superior eye appeal, blessed with fully untoned and frosty surfaces. Striking definition is marvelous and there are no detracting abrasions or blemishes to report.

A pleasing Gem-quality type coin from the early proof Barber Dime series, both sides are fully struck over even the most intricate elements of the design.

This conditionally scarce Gem not only escaped commercial use, but it survived without acquiring any abrasions of note. Boldly struck with mottled, original toning in copper-gray color on the obverse and orange-gold shades on the reverse. A base of silver-gray patina is also present on both sides.

The 1925-S is not a particularly rare issue in Mint State, but most such examples are poorly struck with little, if any separation between the central reverse crossbands. A noteworthy exception to the norm, this smart-looking Gem is fully deserving of the FB designation from NGC. Both sides are also praiseworthy due to a lack of grade-limiting abrasions.

1928-d Mercury Dime. Ms-65 Fb (pcgs).

Lot #136 (Sale Order 135 of 666)

At 4.1 million pieces produced, the 1928-D is a scarcer mintmarked issue in the early Mercury Dime series. Choice and Gem-quality Mint State examples are elusive even without an FB designation as part of the grade, and they are rare when crisply delineated in the center of the reverse. This golden-toned coin possesses full satin luster and an uncommonly sharp strike that is most impressive over the central reverse crossbands and throughout the obverse. Isolated lack of detail at the tops of several letters at the reverse rim is almost always seen in survivors of this Denver Mint issue. A find for the discerning Mercury Dime collector.
PCGS# 4969.

1875 Twenty-cent Piece. Proof-67 Cameo (ngc).

Lot #140 (Sale Order 139 of 666)

There are only four proof issues in the short-lived Twenty-Cent series, and the first-year 1875 was produced in the greatest numbers. Our experience suggests that not even this issue can rightly be considered common in an absolute sense. It is certainly conditionally scarce as a Gem, and Superb Gems such as the coin that we are offering here are nothing short of rare.
This is the finest proof Twenty-Cent piece of any date that this cataloger has handled in quite some time. A lovely specimen, both sides are ringed in medium-tan and blue-gray peripheral toning that leaves the centers essentially brilliant. All devices are fully impressed with needle-sharp delineation to even the most intricate elements of the design. Watery fields are best appreciated at direct light angles, and they support satin-to-frosty textured devices in true cameo fashion. Virtually pristine, and eagerly awaiting inclusion in the finest type set ever assembled.

1796 Draped Bust Quarter. B-2. Rarity-3. G-4 (pcgs).

Lot #141 (Sale Order 140 of 666)

The United States' first Quarters were struck in the fledgling Philadelphia Mint in 1796. A mere 6,146 examples of the Draped Bust, Small Eagle type were produced, and they were the only Quarters delivered before the Mint switched over to the Heraldic Eagle reverse design. This is certainly a heavily worn example, but it is problem free for the assigned grade with only a single mentionable abrasion in the obverse field above the ribbon at the back of Liberty's head. Otherwise silver-gray surfaces possess mottled olive-copper patina in the protected areas around the obverse devices as well as along the lower-left reverse border. Most major design elements are discernible, and the obverse also possess bold denticulation in most areas at the rim. A highly respectable representative of this important one-year type from the first decade of U.S. Mint operations.

1818 Capped Bust Quarter. B-3. Rarity-1. Ms-65 (ngc).

Lot #142 (Sale Order 141 of 666)

The majority of high-grade Capped Bust Quarters that we handle are dated 1818, and it seems that a small hoard of this issue was assembled at the time of delivery and subsequently preserved until released into the numismatic market in a later year. This is only a theory, but what is fact is that this richly toned B-3 is a coin that belongs in the finest type set of originally toned silver coins. The outward appearance is one of antique-copper patina that yields to a blush of reddish-gray color over and before Liberty's portrait. At direct light angles, however, the surfaces reveal multicolored undertones in orange-gold, blue-gray and lilac shades. Sharply struck in all but a few isolated areas, this smooth-looking Gem is sure to please.

Lot #144 (Sale Order 143 of 666)

A scarcer issue in the Capped Bust Quarter series, the 1822 was probably produced to the extent of fewer than 64,080 pieces. That figure represents the number of Quarters struck during calendar-year 1822, but the elusiveness of the 1822 in today's market suggests that many 1821-dated examples are included in this mintage. This richly toned, steel-gray example is quite well defined despite isolated softness of strike and a bit of light highpoint wear. Blue-gray undertones are noted at direct angles, but not even close inspection reveals a distraction of note. B-1 is the more plentiful of the two-known die marriages of this issue, but even it is still seldom encountered in numismatic circles.

This is a smartly impressed example with satiny luster and no outwardly distracting abrasions. As impressive as these features are, they nearly pale to insignificance when compared to the multicolored toning that both sides possess. The colors are perhaps more vivid on the obverse, where one can see orange, gold, powder-blue, and lavender shades that have a target-like distribution from the rim to the center. The reverse has a more uniform appearance with gold, pale-blue and light-apricot undertones backlighting sea-green and medium-gray patina. Perfect for inclusion in a high-quality type set that highlights colorful toning.

In fact, the overall eye appeal that this coin possesses is stronger than that which we have seen in many low-end Mint State Bust Quarters. Housed in an older, green-insert PCGS holder, and seemingly worthy of a premium bid.

Deep charcoal-gray patina is largely confined to the protected areas around the peripheries and devices. The balance of the surfaces exhibit equally original antique-gold (obverse) and silver-gray (reverse) patina. This is a snappy-looking example with exquisite eye appeal despite (or maybe because of) the depth of the toning. An excellent coin to highlight the type in a high-grade collection.

The 1879 is the first of the reduced-mintage issues at the end of the Seated Quarter series, and it has a total delivery of just 13,600 proofs and business strikes. An exceptional Mint State survivor, this Superb Gem is aglow with frosty luster that thins to modest hints of brightness in the fields. There is none but the lightest golden-copper iridescence at the rims, and the overall appearance is one of radiant mint brilliance.

That said, even if every example of this production were to have survived, this would be an absolutely rare coin by any standard. The coin here presents sharp definition to the designs and smooth-looking surfaces for the near-Gem rating.

Lot #168 (Sale Order 167 of 666)

Although not certified, this coin has much to recommend it to the numismatist that is looking for a high-grade example of the key-date 1916 Standing Liberty Quarter. Both sides are sharply struck in most areas with only minimal rub across the highest elements of the design. There is a light overlay of steel-gray iridescence to the surfaces, the texture of which is decidedly satiny. Distracting abrasions are not seen, and both sides are actually remarkably smooth. If we have to mention a negative attribute, it is an ever-so-slightly glossy texture to the surfaces that seems to suggest an old, very light cleaning. Nevertheless, this is a relatively attractive coin that should have no difficulty eliciting bids on auction day.

Medium golden-gray patina blankets surfaces that are silent on the subject of particularly distracting abrasions. Flickers of original luster are noted, especially as the coin rotates under a light.

1918/7-s Standing Liberty Quarter. Au-53 (pcgs).

Lot #172 (Sale Order 171 of 666)

The 1918/7-S has an unknown mintage that almost certainly comprised only a limited percentage of the 11 million Quarters struck in the San Francisco Mint during 1918. Most examples slipped into circulation and, after they remained there for a significant period of time, the date wore away and removed all trace of the 7 underdigit. Today, the 1918/7-S is a key issue in the Standing Liberty Quarter series that is also one of the most desirable varieties in the entire 20th century U.S. coinage family. This is an attractive AU with mostly silver-gray surfaces and a few mottled blushes of olive-charcoal patina in the protected areas around the devices and borders. Inasmuch as light highpoint wear has interfered, the striking detail appears to be uncommonly sharp for an example of this overdate. There are also individually distracting abrasions to inhibit the eye appeal.

This golden-toned near-Gem, therefore, represents the finest in technical quality that is usually obtainable in a survivor of this issue. Both sides are sharply struck with uncommonly smooth surfaces even for the assigned grade. Satiny luster is a bit subdued, however, or else this coin may have secured a full Gem rating.

Lot #179 (Sale Order 178 of 666)

One of the undisputed key-date issues in the 20th century U.S. silver coinage series, the 1927-S Standing Liberty Quarter has a tantalizingly low mintage of 396,000 pieces. With so few coins produced, coupled with the pressing needs of commerce in the years leading up to the Stock Market Crash of 1929, the 1927-S has an understandably limited population of Mint State survivors. Even poorly struck examples in MS-62 and MS-63 represent significant bidding opportunities in today's market. Coins with Full Head striking detail are very rare, and J.H. Cline (Standing Liberty Quarters, Fourth Edition, 2007) states that only 1% of the original mintage emerged from the dies with sufficiently sharp detail.
When offered at all, Mint State 1927-S Quarters with Full Head definition typically grade no finer than MS-64. It is even more impressive, therefore, that the coin in this lot is not only exceptionally well produced by the standards of the issue, but that it has been preserved with enough care to qualify as a Gem. This cataloger cannot recall ever handling a '27-S with more complete definition to Liberty's head. The balance of the features are also impressively bold, if not downright sharp in detail. The surfaces shimmer with full, softly frosted luster that is readily appreciable in the absence of distracting abrasions. Otherwise brilliant, an overlay of delicate golden iridescence is noted for the obverse. A definite highlight of the silver offerings in this sale, this exquisite 1927-S Quarter belongs in a collection of Registry Set quality.

1927-s Standing Liberty Quarter. Unc Details Fh--improperly Cleaned (ncs).

Lot #180 (Sale Order 179 of 666)

With an uncommonly sharp strike for the issue, this key-date Standing Liberty Quarter is sure to see spirited bidding despite the impairment. Silver-gray surfaces are free of bothersome abrasions, yet possessed of a glossy texture that betrays a cleaning. There is no evidence of wear, and this coin obviously never entered the avenues of commerce.
The 1927-S has the lowest mintage in the Standing Liberty Quarter series after only the 1916. In addition to being scarce-to-rare in all grades, the '27-S is a noteworthy strike rarity. Less than 1% of the original mintage is believed to have left the coinage presses with Full Head detail (this per J.H. Cline, 2007).

1932-s Washington Quarter. Ms-64 (pcgs).

Lot #184 (Sale Order 183 of 666)

From an original mintage of just 408,000 pieces comes this key-date, first-year Washington Quarter. Sharply struck with full, softly frosted luster, the surfaces appear smooth enough to warrant an MS-65 grade. Slight muting to the luster due to the presence of pinkish-tan peripheral toning, however, seems to confirm the near-Gem designation from PCGS. As nice an MS-64 as any that we have seen for the issue.

Lot #186 (Sale Order 185 of 666)

This semi key-date example is every bit the Gem. Full, softly frosted luster shimmers beneath a dusting of light, mostly golden-gray patina. A few blushes of medium-tan toning are also present in isolated areas, particularly on the obverse over and around Washington's neck. Sharply struck with nary a distracting abrasion to report.

A highly regarded issue from the early Washington Quarter series, the 1936-D has one of the lowest Mint State populations of the type. This exceptionally well-preserved Gem is silent on the subject of distracting abrasions. Full mint frost and soft tannish-silver patina that appears to drift toward the rims are also noteworthy attributes.

1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-105. Rarity-5. Au-53 (ngc). 1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-105. Rarity-5. Au-53 (ngc).

1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-105. Rarity-5. Au-53 (ngc).

Lot #188 (Sale Order 187 of 666)

The first Half Dollars struck in the United States were 23,464 examples of the 1794 Flowing Hair issue. No more coins were produced with this date, with the result that the 1794 is now widely regarded as a rare, key-date issue at all levels of preservation. It is much more elusive than the other issue in the Flowing Hair series--the 1795--and examples are not offered with any degree or frequency in today's market.
This is an appealing AU with dominant lavender-silver iridescence adorning both sides. There are also splashes of golden-apricot and reddish-russet patina outlining the peripheral devices--these colors are more extensive on the obverse. Remnants of a semi-prooflike finish are discernible at direct light angles. The strike is sharply executed and perhaps most impressive over the eagle's head on the reverse. A few thin grazes in the obverse field are mentioned for accuracy, and there are also several light adjustment marks (as struck) on the same side over Liberty's cheek and in select peripheral areas.
PCGS# 6051.This coin is an intermediate die state between O-105 and O-105a. The bisecting reverse crack has already started to form, but the die has not started to sink in the area around the eagle's head.

1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-101a. Rarity-4. Vf-20 (pcgs).

Lot #189 (Sale Order 188 of 666)

A pleasing representative of this rare and historic issue, both sides are silent on the subject of individually mentionable abrasions. The overall appearance is actually quite smooth for an early U.S. silver coin that saw this extensive circulation. There is a bit of light, pale-copper iridescence at the borders, but the balance of the surfaces are untoned with a silver-gray sheen. Overall sharply struck from a well-centered impression, the major devices retain considerable boldness of detail despite having acquired 40 points of wear. In sum, there is nothing negative that we can say about this appealing 1794 Half.
PCGS# 6051.

1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-117a. Rarity-4. Vf-25 (pcgs).

Lot #190 (Sale Order 189 of 666)

The Overton-117a is straightaway characterized by an as-made die crack that emerges from the obverse rim at 5 o'clock and continues into the base of the obverse portrait. Moreover, the reverse bears a pattern of berries beneath the right-facing eagle's wing that only appears on reverse N. Both sides of the example reveal shades of ash and charcoal-gray. There are scattered abrasions, the only one which merits attention appearing as an old pinscratch between the 1 and 7 in 1795. Otherwise, the designs remain boldly outlined.

Lot #191 (Sale Order 190 of 666)

A more affordable, yet still problem-free representative of the United States' premier Half Dollar type, this 1795 Flowing Hair is originally toned in dominant lilac-silver patina. Slightly deeper, dove-gray toning is also noted at the dentices. Although heavy, wear leaves the major design elements well outlined and readily discernible. There is a smattering of small digs and pock marks on both sides, none are which are either worthy of singular concern or particularly unusual for an early Half Dollar that saw this extensive circulation. Housed in an older PCGS holder with a green insert.

Lot #192 (Sale Order 191 of 666)

Strictly in the Mint State category, this coin is free of wear with sharp definition to the major elements of the design. Lightly patinated in silvery shades, there are also vivid cobalt-blue and reddish-orange highlights scattered around the peripheries. A few moderate abrasions are present on the obverse portrait, but this is still a highly desirable BU representative of the premier issue in the ever-popular Capped Bust Half Dollar series.

1825 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-116. Rarity-3 (rarity-8 As A Proof). Ms-64 Pl (ngc).

Lot #195 (Sale Order 194 of 666)

Possible Proof. This is one of the most interesting coins in the entire sale. It is the plate coin for the Breen-4659 variety in the 1988 book Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins. The author describes this piece as an unequivocal proof and, indeed, there are many attributes that would seem to accredit the coin as such. Both sides possess deeply mirrored, watery fields. The strike is razor sharp over most elements of the design, although we note that a few of the peripheral devices on both sides are more-or-less softly impressed. We stress, however, that the lack of 100% full striking detail is not enough to disqualify this coin as a proof. Minting technology was not as advanced in the 1820s as it was in later decades and many proof coins from that era do not display the exactness of strike as proofs from, say, the 1880s, 1890s and throughout the 20th century. As impressive as many of the striking characteristics of this coin are, however, NGC obviously did not agree with Breen's assessment and chose to certify this piece as a prooflike business strike. In the end, we must leave the final determination to the bidders.
This is a very pretty coin, and not only because it possesses uncommonly sharp striking detail and reflective fields. Both sides are adorned in delicate lavender-tan iridescence that deepens in a few of the protected areas around the devices. Wispy hairlines and other handling marks are few in number, and none are really worthwhile for pedigree purposes. Regardless of its exact status, there is clearly something special about this coin. We are confident that it will have no difficulty finding its way into an advanced collection of early United States Half Dollars.NGC Census: (all die marriages): only 2 with a PL designation, the other coin being an AU-58. PCGS and NGC combined have certified just three 1825 Half Dollars as proofs, the single example listed at NGC is attributed as O-113.

Scintillating blue-gray and orange-gold iridescence has gathered at the borders, but the surfaces are predominantly lavender-gray in tone. All areas are equally sharp in strike with an uncommonly smooth appearance for the assigned grade. O-105 may be a plentiful die marriage of the 1825 Half Dollar in an absolute sense, but it is quite rare in the finer Mint State grades. This Choice examples qualifies as Condition Census based on the list in the 1990 edition of Overton's standard reference on early United States Half Dollars.

This late-date Bust Half is not an easy issue to locate with strong eye appeal. Even Mint State examples tend to be unattractive, the strike often soft with noticeable swelling to the central devices. Then there's the present Gem. This is one of the more attractive 1831 Half Dollars that we have handled in recent memory. Both sides are well struck with uniformly sharp definition that extends from the denticles to the centers. The surfaces are smooth and satiny with no distracting abrasions. Originally toned in mottled orange-copper shades, there are also blushes of blue and lavender colors along the left borders. A strong candidate for inclusion in a high-grade type set.

Lot #201 (Sale Order 200 of 666)

There are no abrasions of note, but the luster appears to be a bit too subdued to warrant a higher grade. Tannish-lavender patina blankets the obverse, while the reverse exhibits mottled antique-copper toning over a base of softer antique-gold color. The obverse stars are drawn toward the denticles somewhat, and the highpoints of Liberty's haircurls and the eagle's left (facing) shoulder are a bit softly struck, but the impression is still overall bold for a late-date Half Dollar of this type. This Choice example just makes it into the Condition Census per the list in the 1990 edition of Al C. Overton's book Early Half Dollar Die Varieties: 1794-1836.
