MS61 NGC
3883990001
Choice $750 Mirrored Fields, Eye Appeal, Choice Original, Better New Orleans Strike.. A popular Type 1 design strike given the opportunity to own a New Orleans mint issue at slightly above a comparable Philadelphia issue. Mintage is low at 290,000. Fields are mirrored and sharply reflective under a light source. This piece is properly graded at MS61, on a technical basis, due to some obverse hairlines but in hand eye appeal is that of a higher grade. This is why this 1851-O gold dollar was added to GFRC inventory. Housed in newer NGC holder with some plastic lines that appear on the GFRC image. Believe me, this is a nice example for the grade.

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.

Choice $650 New October 19! 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).

Choice $1085 Old Reverse Design, Near-Gem at Grade, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Reflective Luster. A near-gem original 1859 $2.5 quarter eagle struck with the old reverse hub of 1840-1858. The old and new hubs can be easily attributed by checking the arrow feathers below the olive stem. If the feathers touches the left facing claw, then the hub is that of 1840-1858. If the feather is short and does not touch, then the die was cut from the new design hub. Those struck with the old hub are about twice as rare as the new hub design. This attractive example has been well preserved and warrants its CAC green bean. Surfaces are coloed greenish-gold. Fields are steely and emit reflective luster. Strike is complete with light wear.

Gem $900 Gem Original, Old Time Conservative Grading. Mintage of 578,000 at the Denver mint and the last $2.5 Indians to be produced. Once again, let's consider the 1925-D issue's background as explained by David Akers. He states, "Almost always having very good to excellent mint lustre but the striking quality varies greatly; some are very unevenly struck while others are well struck. Dies seem to have been a problem with this issue, and many specimens were clearly struck from buckled or deteriorated dies. The mint mark is usually a little weak but well defined. There are some specimens, however, where the mintmark is so weak that it is nearly invisible. The color is typically a rose tinted gold but there are also coppery colored specimens as well as ones with green and yellow gold shades. The surfaces are frosty with little or no granularity." In light of these observation, this example was carefully examined with a 10x loupe. Surfaces are frosty with brilliant cartwheel luster. Strike is complete and uniform with some minor die bulging below the Indian's chin and behind E PLU(RI)BUS. Overall eye appeal is superior and warrants a gem quality rating. Housed in NGC fatty holder with CAC approval. An offering for collectors attempt a type set with preference for all TPG holders and CAC approval.

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.

Choice $2100 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.

Choice $5000 New October 7! Super Eye Appeal, Reflective Luster, Orange-Gold Patina, Choice Original Surfaces, Murphys Collection. The 1880-CC is rarely seen in any grade and is an important $10 gold denomination rarity from a low mintage of just 11,190 struck.

Mirrored surfaces generate substantial reflective luster and dancing cartwheels under a bright light. The obverse die's finish was incomplete as there is heavy mint frost below the date, below stars 12 and 13, and to the left of stars 1 to 3. This gold piece sports a lovely orange-gold patina that speaks volumes of the originality. Overall, a super example that should please the most selective collector.

Gem $1800 Gem Original at Grade, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Greenish-Gold Patina, Fully Struck . Let's open the description for this gem original 1915-S St. Gaudens with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Honestly, there was an expectation for CAC Gold bean due to the lack of abrasions and brilliant frosty luster. In hand, this $20 double eagle looks more like a 64 than a 63 in my humble opinion. Greenish-gold patina covered surfaces offer vibrant cartwheels under a light source. Fully struck, in particular with well defined eyes and nose on Liberty's face. Housed in old NGC Fatty holder with brown label. Fresh CAC approval. Recently purchased from an old Sarasota collection and off the market for several decades. Yes, the asking price is high, but so is the old time quality. Please check CoinFacts and a 1/18 DLRC record at $1950 for a rattler MS63 with CAC approval as a comparison. This piece is a full MS64.

Choice $7500 Better St. Gaudens Date, Choice Original, Thick Granular Mint Frost, Greenish-Gold Patina, Osprey Collection. 1924 Denver St. Gaudens strikes were produced in large quantities. Regardless, this date is an important rarity in choice to gem mint state grades. This choice original mint state example was purchased from an old Sarasota collection that had been off the market for several decades. It was subsequently regraded and is housed in new large font NGC holder. Granular mint frost is consistent on both obverse and reverse with essentially no abrasions. Under a bright light, the frosty luster is perfectly consistent with no points of distractions. Given the unabraded surfaces, luster intensity is the only issue holding this piece from near gem status. The Osprey Collection is back with yet another enticing United States gold offering to consider.
