Choice $825 Scarce Type 2 $1 Gold, Popular AU58 Grade, Shimmering Frosty Luster, Yellow-Gold Coloring, Near-Gem Original!. A "Wow" Type 2 Indian Princess $1 gold piece that warrants a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Brilliant yellow-gold luster sparkles during a wholesale buying bright light inspection and screamed "add me to inventory." Strike is completed executed from aging dies. In particular, excessive obverse die pitting surrounds the obverse legend. I can just imagine the die steel flaking away with successive strikes. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert and CAC approval. The NGC label reads TYPE 2 AU58. The AU58 CAC market is hot due to registry set fever; I don't expect this near-gem to be around for long.

Choice $1250 New August 6! Very Scarce Date, Semi-Prooflike, Orange-Gold Coloring, Choice Surfaces, Oregon Beaver Collection. GFRC likes CAC as much anyone, but must respectfully disagree on this piece, to which we assign the JUST BUY IT NOW designation. Crisp, reflective luster reveals orange-gold shading, with pink-gold peaking out from the recessed areas of the central figures. Ticks are evenly scattered and the aesthetic appeal is considerable. This is a low-mintage issue in the quarter eagle series, with only 3,920 pieces struck. PCGS records 104 total grading events, easily within the lower range for Liberty $2.50s. A compelling combination of quality and rarity. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
