Gold G$1 1903 1903
MS63 PCGS
13372068
Choice $575 New May 3! LA Purchase, Jefferson, Steely Reflective Luster, Green and Orange-Gold, Hampden Collection. Thomas Jefferson served as the U.S. Minister to France after the Revolution, and in 1803, as President, concluded the Louisiana Purchase, which added nearly a million square miles to the U.S. at the bargain price of $15 million. Thus, it was natural that the Louisiana Purchase Exposition (today more populary known as the St. Louis World's Fair) honored Jefferson on one of the two gold dollar commemoratives issued in conjunction with the event. The other piece depicted President McKinley, and the two pieces shared a common reverse. This orange-gold example, with a few hints of copper, exhibits minimal abrasion, and the focal point of the cheek is near-perfect for the grade. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
Gold G$1 1917 1917
MS64 PCGS
34926558
Choice $500 New May 3! McKinley, Frosty Luster, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Hampden Collection. 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.

No Star
MS67 NGC
3211535010
Gem $2500 New May 3! Grant, No Star, Superb Gem, Incredible Mint Bloom, Hampden Collection. 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.

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.

Surfaces are essentially abrasion free with a few very faint wispy hairlines seen under bright light viewing and nothing else. 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.

Luster is above average on the obverse, which exhibits clash marks, quite typical in the one-dollar gold series.

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.

Choice $1385 Low Mintage Issue, Choice at Grade, Brilliant Reflective Luster, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Oregon Beaver Collection. The 1880 -1882 timeframe brought tiny mintages for Philadelphia struck $2.5 gold. After striking only 640 pieces during 1881, mintage increased to 4,000 pieces during 1882. GFRC is pleased to be offering a quality survivor that brings eye appeal well above its assigned grade level. Luster texture is somewhere between brilliant frosty and sharply reflective. Swirling cartwheels are quite entertaining during bright light viewing. Strike is deeply impression with high relief center devices. Visual eye appeal is well above the assigned MS61 grade. However, a close 10x inspection revealed reverse chatter in the upper and right fields that result in small luster breaks. Freshly graded greenish-gold example that is housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. Newly divested from the Oregon Beaver Collection.

Choice $1225 New May 19! Tiny Mintage, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Choice Original Surfaces, Exceptional Value Grade.

Choice $10450 New April 22! 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.

The 1855-S is for all intents and purposes the first collectible San Francisco half eagle, given the rarity of the 1854-S, Mintage of 61,000 and rarer than 1855 Charlotte and Dahlonega $5 half eagle counterparts. It is obtainable in grades up to AU55 but becomes very rare in AU58 and is extremely rare in full Uncirculated condition. This offering is one of the two mint state examples graded by PCGS. Surfaces are absolutely choice with exceptional satiny luster. Obverse patina is natural rose and orange-gold while the reverse adds splashes of rich orange-gold leading increased eye appeal. Strike is complete with fully defined stars and eagle wing tips. Many times, some of the highest graded survivors for a rare date are just not that attractive with collectors learning to love these pieces for what they are. This is not the case for this lovely 1855-S $5 half eagle offering. Eye appeal and condition census rarity are available together. The only comparable 1855-S half eagle to sell at auction was the Bass II coin sold over twenty years ago for $17,250. Today, that coin would be much more.

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.

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.
