PCGS
35738613
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. The CAC population report validates this fact with only three approved at MS63 level and three finer. Rich frosty luster is the highlight of this choice original offering. 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. Freshly graded and housed in Gen 6.0S Gold Shield PCGS holder with CAC approval. An exceptional advanced collector offering from the Osprey Collection.

Gem $10500 Very Rare Closed 3 Variety, Proof Like, Honey-Gold Coloring, Osprey Collection. The 1873 Closed 3 gold dollar was unknown until discovered by Harry X. Boosel during recent times. One of the rarest coins in any U.S. gold series but continues to be underrated due to lack of publicity. The "Closed 3" essentially looks like an 8 digit without careful scrutiny.

Coloring is a uniform honey-gold. Mintage is listed at a tiny 1,800 strikes. CAC population is 3 at MS64 and one finer at MS66. A condition census offering for the serious gold collectors among us.

Gem $960 Superb Eye Appeal, Brilliant Orange-Gold Luster, Pristine NGC Fatty Holder. Small denomination silver and gold coins typically don't perform well in the thick old Fatty NGC holders due to limited angular lighting within the small cavity. Having said that, this 1874 $1 gold piece comes with so much brilliant gold luster that easily overcomes the old holder limitations.

Mintage is 28,950 which might not appear large when applied to modern day standards but many were saved during that timeframe. As a result, this date is plentiful at the Mint State level and an ideal candidate for type. This gem example has been released from the Washington State Collection, an individual with a discerning eye for premium copper, silver, and gold coins. Surfaces are covered with a thick layer of mint frost which results in brilliant luster and vibrant cartwheels. Coloring is yellow-honey gold that is consistent on both sides.

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. This date is historically significant as the first gold coin produced at the New Orleans mint along with being the only New Orleans quarter eagle with a mintmark located on the obverse. This results in the date being a popular one year type. The Osprey Collection is back with a pleasing NGC AU55 graded example that featured medium greenish-gold coloring and soft frosty luster. 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.

84763352
Choice $7000 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.

Lovely tangerine and green-gold surfaces radiate reflective luster during bright light review. Fields are moderately mirrored and showcase the well-struck devices.

Mintage was limited to 98,508 with question marks concerning the amount that was actually released into east coast circulation during a period when all silver and gold specie disappeared from commerce due to hoarding.

The 1872 San Francisco issued $2.5 denomination was limited to 18,000 pieces.

Strike is 100% executed and so pleasing under a 10x. Abrasions are limited to one contact mark and nearly chatter on the reverse under the right facing wing.

First Year Issue Type, Super Satiny Luster, Honey-Gold Coloring, Osprey Collection. 1908 brought a transition of the $2.5 gold denomination from the classic Liberty Head to a much more artistically pleasing Indian Head per Bela Lyon Pratt. This first year design strike brings noteworthy eye appeal given its satiny luster and honey-gold coloring. Obverse strike is deeply impressed revealing the miniscule details of the Pratt design. Unfortunately, the reverse eagle strike is not as bold due to missing die details. The reverse die design was enhanced during subsequent years.

Glowing Satiny Luster, Orange and Greenish-Gold Coloring, Complete Strike, CAC Approval.. 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. Coloring mixtures are more prevalent on the reverse. Under a light source, I see green-gold in front of the eagle and down to the olive leaf plus additional greens on the tail feathers.

Choice $3850 Sole New Orleans $3 Issue, Choice Surfaces, Classic Green-Gold Coloring. 1854 saw the introduction of the $3 gold denomination at three of the four active mints of that period. A strategy to strike the new denomination at the Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Dahlonega mint covered the territorial U.S. during that timeframe. The New Orleans mint ceased production in 1854. Was this due to lack of acceptance by the southern population? This CAC approved survivor is one of 24,000 struck. Surfaces are 100% original with natural deep green-gold coloration coupled with peripheral light orange-gold. One has to look long and hard to locate a blemish on this near-gem example.

Original $5100 New October 14! Low Mintage Civil War Issue, Rose-Gold Coloring, Brilliant Luster, Osprey Collection. During 1863, the Civil War was raging with smaller denomination coinage disappearing from everyday commerce. The Philadelphia continued to strike a limited number of gold pieces, probably to satisfy local collector demand. Mintage is 5,000 struck leading to the date being scarce in all grades. This well preserved survivor brings atypical rose-gold obverse toning over lightly mirrored fields. Reverse coloring is closely to orange-gold with the fields being closer to frosted than mirrored. Both dies are heavily clashed when striking this piece. This near-choice example has a few scattered abrasions. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with a considerable amount of plastic holder haze on the reverse that should be taken into consideration.

Few survivors are known with most being found in the EF and AU grades. As with other low mintage dates during the Civil War era, a small percentage were saved by wealth collectors. Luckily, this near-choice survivor saw minimal handling. Both sides featured mirrored fields that radiate sharp reflective luster under a light source. As is the case with mirrored silver and gold coins, abrasions are amplified. A full Choice quality rating would have been assigned except for two lines on the upper left obverse. Coloring is best described as honey-gold. Total PCGS population at the certified grade is a scant ten pieces. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.

Choice $5900 New August 17! Repunched Date, Choice Original, Green-Gold Coloring, Osprey Collection. 1882 $4 gold production was limited to only 1,500 pieces. Most were surely destined for the growing number of East Coast collectors. During reverse die preparation, the 2 digit was oddly repunched. My initial assessment without digging out the Cherrypickers book is that the first date punch was placed upside down and later corrected. This cool Osprey Collection offering is fully choice and warrants its coveted CAC green bean. Partially mirrored fields emit reflective luster during bright light inspection. Surfaces are free of any marks though there are some wispy field lines under the chin of no consequence. Coloring is classic green-gold. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Gem $1485 New September 13! Gem Original, Rich Frosted Luster, Greenish Gold Coloring, Vintage PCGS Holder, Osprey Collection. Let's start the description for this gem 1907 Liberty $10 gold piece with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Superb eye appeal is driven by thick frosty luster along with swirling cartwheels from greenish-gold colored surfaces. Two stray lines (one on obverse and another on the reverse) could have driven the assigned grade during a period of very conservative grading. The PCGS Gen 2.1 (1989) early old green holder is in pristine condition and still retains the "squishy" feeling when the holder edges are squeezed. CAC approval was a foregone conclusion for this lovely gem.

Choice $2400 Light Orange-Gold Coloring, Considerable Eye Appeal at Grade, CAC Approval. My first reaction when purchasing this lovely 1889 San Francisco struck $20 double eagle was the inconsistencies between the certified grade and the actual coin. The MS60 conjures thoughts of a problematic or heavily abraded coin that is ugly. Well, the CAC green bean has dispelled that notion as this is a most attractive piece of gold with light orange-gold coloring. Surfaces are minimally abraded while the frosted luster is pleasing. If contemplating adding bullion gold to a numismatic portfolio, this 1889-S offering also brings numismatic enjoyment along with the pricing protection of CAC approval.
