MS64 PCGS
34926558
Choice $500 New June 7! McKinley, Frosty Luster, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Hampden Collection. Price Reduction June 2020 - One dollar gold-pieces were popular in the early 20th century, especially for presentation purposes, and the allure of gold conveyed a deeper sentiment than a few mixed silver coins, a crumpled bit of currency, or worse, a personal check. This period saw a number of one-dollar gold commemoratives, with nearly a complete set represented in the Hampden consignment. This example would be an excellent start to such a set, with yellow-gold shading and delicate rose centers. Lustrous cartwheels radiate from both sides, the aesthetic appeal is strong, and the coin is separated from the gem level only by a couple obverse ticks. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-date) holder.

Gem $2500 New June 7! Grant, No Star, Superb Gem, Incredible Mint Bloom, Hampden Collection. Price Reduction June 2020 - A highlight of the Hampden consignment, this superb gem Grant dollar exhibits virtually perfect surfaces and exceptional luster, more than conveyed by the images. The Without Star variety is less cluttered on the obverse, showcasing the work of Laura Gardin Fraser, who also engraved the dies for many other U.S. commemoratives. On the Grant piece, the texturing within the leaves is finely and exceptionally done, a testament to the engraver's skill. The Grant pieces were sold at the time of issue to assist in financing preservation of the Grant birth home in Point Pleasant, OH, with No Star gold examples priced at three dollars. Housed in an old NGC holder with standard ring insert. NGC has graded only 12 pieces higher, all in MS68.

Choice $5650 CAC Condition Census, Rare in Mint State, Rich Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Accurately Grades, Osprey Collection. The 1852-O has the second lowest mintage of any Type 1 New Orleans mint gold dollar and is also the second rarest. Locating choice examples in higher uncirculated grades is very difficult.

Obverse die is heavily cracked with die cracks from 9:00 to Liberty's nose and another from star to the bonnet. Coloring is natural medium green-gold. Strike is typical with the reverse DO(LL)AR and 8 digit being a tad weak. Overall, a quality representative of this rare date in Mint State.

Choice $650 Choice Original, Mark Mattox Estate (Alexandria Collection). This type III one-dollar gold piece rounds out the Mark Mattox collection of gold dollar varieties. The portrait of Liberty on the type III piece is quite similar to that of the three-dollar gold piece, while the reverse cereal wreath is closed, rather than open as on the three-dollar coin. Luster is above average on the obverse, which exhibits clash marks, quite typical in the one-dollar gold series. A few reverse marks are found near the top of the wreath, but the surfaces are original and the eye appeal is CAC-endorsed. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder (2015-date).

This date is well known for the 180 degree medallic reverse alignment as is the case with this offering. Housed in new large font NGC holder with edge view insert.

Gold G$2.5 1839O 1839-O

3751210002
Original $4775 Historically Important Offering, Medium Greenish-Gold Coloring, Soft Luster, Normal Coin Turn Die Alignment. 1839 New Orleans strikes were limited to only 17,781 pieces.

The reverse is often seen in medallic coin turn (180 degree rotation) but this offering has regular coin turn die alignment. Strike is typical along with surfaces being completely unabraded.

AU58 PCGS
84763352
Choice $7000 New August 6! First Year Chalotte Mint Issue, Semi-Prooflike, Fully Struck, Oregon Beaver Collection. Reflective luster, similar to the Bass coin (also PCGS AU58), radiates from both sides. As noted by Doug Winter, this issue comes well-struck, and this piece is exceptionally so, with sharp hair curls and defined claw joints. Shading is yellow-gold, lighter in the protected areas where Mint bloom remains. The three southern Mints all struck Coronet $2.50s in this year, in addition to the Philadelphia Mint, and all four of these issues are scarce. Few uncs survive, with PCGS listing 14 in all grades combined, none higher than MS63. This piece is thus both absolutely and conditionally challenging, and will be a highlight of any quarter eagle or type gold collection. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
Gold G$2.5 1840O 1840-O
VF35 PCGS
34438268
Choice $1175 Scarce First Year New Orleans Design Issue, Classic Green-Gold Patina, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. The 1840-O $2.5 quarter eagle in PCGS VF35 is not a spectacular high grade uncirculated rarity. The 1840-O quarter eagle is very scarce in VF and XF. It is estimated that 175 specimens survive in all grades with PCGS grading less than 100 coins in all grades; AU and Mint State examples are rare. This greenish -gold Type 1 example is typical of nearly all 1840-O strikes. Reverses are notorious for being weakly struck, however this example is atypical in that the fields are smooth with no distracting marks. As a scarce, problem free example of the first New Orleans minted Liberty Head $2.5 denomination, this is a coin that would fit nicely in any New Orleans $2.5 collection or in a Southern Mint type set. From the Osprey Collection. 3. As the first year of Christian Gobrechtís new Liberty Head or Coronet design it is sought after by collectors who prefer to collect the first the year of designs. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

AU58
PCGS
36774617
Choice $6000 New August 6! Choice Original, Copper Gold Patina, Oregon Beaver Collection. This is the highest piece graded at CAC, and a quick glance reveals the strong eye appeal. Copper shades outline the central figures, surrounded by warm orange-gold fields. Residual frosty luster is evident in the recessed areas, notably around the stars and reverse legend. The strike is typical, with some softness in the centers. Ticks are scattered, and there is a short, diagonal line across Y in the headband. The PCGS census notes 13 examples in all Mint state grades combined, but the quality of the present example will exceed that of many of the lower MS pieces. The combination of originality, aesthetic appeal, and low mintage are strong with this coin, a branch Mint piece that attracted little attention among collectors at the time of issue. Large date variety with plain (not crosslet) 4 in the date. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Original $4250 New August 6! Small D, Semi-Prooflike, Green-Gold Coloring, Sharp Strike, Oregon Beaver Collection. Yellow-gold surfaces reveal mirrored fields and reflective luster, a characteristic noted by Doug Winter in his volume on Dahlonega gold. The strike is nicely impressed, with softness only in the eagle's left leg. PCGS has certified 13 pieces in all MS grades combined, none higher than MS63. All coins of this issue are rare, and, at the AU level, especially challenging. As a set, none of the Dahlonega quarter eagles are readily available, and this issue is no exception. Attempting a complete set would be highly ambitious, but those looking for a distinctive type coin will find one here. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with blue D.L. Hansen Collection pedigree label.

AU53 PCGS
81766966
Original $1000 New August 6! Underrated Date, Rose-Gold Coloring, Residual Frosty Luster, Oregon Beaver Collection. The Gold Rush did not quite reach the Philadelphia Mint in 1849, and, while vast quantities of the yellow metal might have been available in California, transporting it to Philadelphia was a different matter. The eastern Mint struck only 23,294 quarter eagles in this year, and today PCGS has graded but 101 examples, with only 18 in all MS grades combined. This piece exhibits frosty luster over yellow-gold surfaces, with deeper shades outlining the portrait of Liberty. The strike is typical with some weakness beneath the shield. The Mint switched to smaller date punches in this year, and the 1849 now sits comfortably between the rim and bust truncation. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Genuine PCGS
38378737
Cleaned $3000 New August 6! Lowest Mintage Charlotte Quarter Eagle, Green-Gold, Cleaned & Stratched, Oregon Beaver Collection. There is no substitute for rarity, as the saying goes, and this 1855-C $2.50 is nothing if not rare. As the southern deposits ran out of easily-mined gold, shipments to the area Mints decreased, and in 1855 the Charlotte Mint struck only 3,677 quarter eagles. This piece retains all design details, a pleasing characteristic of rare U.S. gold, which circulated less than silver and copper coinage. Even some of the shield horizontals remain, and no one has to count the letters of LIBERTY on such coins. This is a dipped, green-gold example with obverse surface marks as seen, but remains a well-detailed representative of the last years of this North Carolina Mint. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Now that is probably why I'm so comfortable with this offering! Housed in new ICG holder and fairly priced.

Pleasing warm, reddish-gold surfaces blanket both sides of this low-mintage quarter eagle, struck to the extent of just 4,320 pieces.

This coin is well-struck, with defined star centers and nearly complete detail beneath the reverse shield. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

This piece was hand selected by the Osprey Collection for its above average eye appeal and overall quality. Since so few Mint State survivors are available, gold enthusiast should take note.

Most United States gold coinage will be found with either greenish-gold or orange-gold uniform coloring. Infrequent are cases where the two dominant toning colors are intermixed on the same coin. This 1926 gem G$2.5 Indian is one of those occurrences. Rich orange gold covers nearly all of the obverse other than a streak of green-gold from the 1 digit in the date up through star 7. Coloring mixtures are more prevalent on the reverse. Under a light source, I see green-gold in front of the eagle face/neck and throughout the tail feathers.

The issue was saved and is available in Mint State grades up through MS64. MS64+ and MS65 populations are a factor of ten lower than choice and near-gems levels. CAC approval also brings an incremental premium as is the case for this close to gem orange-gold example. Intense or dense satiny luster (pick your adjective) is eye catching and was rewarded with an MS64+ certification along with subsequent CAC approval. Strike is deeply impressed leading to bold devices. There are a few scattered obverse field ticks of no consequence. At the near-gem and gem grade levels, luster plays a substantial role in grading.

Choice $10450 Tall 5, Frosty Luster, Green-Gold Coloring, Heavily Clashed Dies, Opsrey Collection. Noted United States gold expert, David Akers, opines within CoinFacts that "the Tall 5 variety of 1811 is moderately more rare than the Small 5 variety in all grades. However, it is at the uncirculated level that the difference is the greatest and, based on the number of auction appearances over the last half century, the Tall 5 variety is approximately twice as rare as the 1811 Small 5 in mint state." The Osprey Collection has found a new niche with early U.S, gold, in particular, Capped Bust $5 half eagles. This new 1811 Tall 5 example is consistent with recent offerings. Frosty luster radiates from greenish-gold surfaces. Dies are heavily clashed on both sides. The die clashing appears as a bunch of lines in the fields suggesting field chatter. That is not the case as the fields are unabraded while traversed with multiple rotating die clash lines. Strike is pleasing too! Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert.

However, The Liberty's head on Philadelphia and other branch mint issues of 1839 is distinctly different from the head on subsequent coins dated 1840 and later. According to noted gold expert, David Akers, the head design difference is sufficient that the 1839 should be considered a one year only type coin. The 1839 date is very scarce in AU58 and rare in Mint State. GFRC is thoroughly pleased to present a superb example with classic green-gold coloring along with sparkling frosty luster. Cartwheels are quite animated during bright light inspection. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval. On offering that belongs in an advanced collection.

This survivor was recently repatriated from Europe by the Osprey Collection and is freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Indeed, only two 1852 half eagles have been awarded the gold sticker, both at the AU50 level. Slab collecting is its own specialty, and while GFRC encourages clients to buy the coin and not the holder, there is no question that a gold CAC premium exists in the marketplace. The winning bid will determine exactly what that premium is, but regardless, bidders will do well to remember that this is a special coin with special status. The originality factor is especially high with this piece, with green-gold, hairline-free fields contrasting with original Mint-bloom in the recessed areas. Gold is soft and tick-prone, but this piece reveals reverse fields that are remarkably smooth. Housed in a PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder with gold CAC approval.

Mint bloom radiates from the protected areas, while the fields exhibit medium orange-gold shades. The lower portion of the reverse reveals bits of maroon, no doubt an artifact of the gold-copper alloy used to produce U.S. gold coinage. The piece is well-struck, as indicated by the sharp stars and defined claw joints, with some blending of the design elements underneath the shield. The eye appeal is excellent with minimal marks for the grade, and there is no denying the attraction of Carson City gold. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.

Mint State Rarity, Rich Orange-Gold Patina, Completely Struck, Fairly Graded. The 1894-S $5 half eagle is one of the most underrated and undervalued dates in the entire Liberty series. Mintage was limited to 55,900 piece with few survivors in any grade. When reaching the market, the typical specimen is invariably only EF to AU. In Mint State, the date is very rare. PCGS population report immediately illustrated the Mint State rarity. There is a lone MS63 and three at the MS63 grade level which are five figure examples when located. The balance of the Mint State pieces are graded MS61-MS62. This MS61 graded example offers excellent eye appeal. Rich orange-gold covers the surfaces. Brilliant frosty luster and cartwheels are bold under a light source. Strike is complete with all devices uniformly impressed. The assigned PCGS grade appears related to the reverse copper spot otherwise the luster supports a higher grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. Old time patina, frosty luster and Mint State rarity should make this 1894-S $5 piece a compelling value at the offer price.

Sure it is a common date, but is ideal as a type coin from a value perspective. One is spending the minimum to acquire a coin that bring crisp mint bloom along with no blemishes. Frosty luster results from "textured" surfaces on both sides. A bit stronger luster would have brought full MS66 certification as there are no blemishes to distract.
