Gem $1600 Norse Medal, Thick Silver Edition, Superb Gem, CAC Approval. The 1925 Norse-American Medal commemorated the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Norwegian ship Restauration in America. 33,750 thick medals and 6,000 silver thin medals were issued aong with 100 medals in gold. The Norse issue appeals to both early silver commemorative collectors and those who pursue U.S issued medals. Few Norse medals have been CAC approved, especially at the top of the Mint State grade. A truly special numismatic item that would be an excellent conversation piece. Housed in NGC Gen 17 (2004-2008) holder.

Choice $260 Vermont Sesquicentennial, Near Gem Original, Steely Cartwheels, Substantial Eye Appeal. Net distribution of 28,142 as 11,892 were melted. Struck in very high relief as compared to other early silver commemoratives. Survivors all show excellent detail but the high relief brought about friction on Ira Allen's cheek. This MS63 graded example offers exceptional steely luster and is so pleasing. Cartwheels are vibrant. Faint speckled ebony toning is concentrated at the peripheries. Near gem for the assigned grade level. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Gem $900 Antietam Civil War Battle Commemorative, Superb Gem Original, Old Mint Holder Toning, Accurately Graded. The 1937 Antietam Civil War half dollar commemorative is popular with collectors. The original mintage was 50,028 coins although 32,000 were melted as unsold. Therefore the surviving mintage distributed to collectors is only 18,028. Most surviving examples will grade in the MS63 to MS66 range. This offering is well above average with old mintage holder paper toning that is quite evident on the reverse. Frosty cartwheel luster is brilliant and swirling when viewed under a light source. A superior example that is fairly graded as MS66+ and approved by CAC. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.
