Better date S-mint that is rarely seen in gem grades. Typically poorly struck, this 1918-S is struck as nicely as you'll typically see with full luster and light evenly-toned golden devices. A true delight in gem grades that is often underappreciated.
Great draped bust type coin. A condition census example of the B-3 die variety, it was struck from clashed dies and is rather weakly defined in the central devices, as is typical for the issue. Pretty pink tones highlight the rim with gorgeous, lustrous fields overall. An ideal example for the type coin collector!
The 1839 Gobrecht dollar is much scarcer than the 'type coin' 1836 Gobrecht without any premium. One of the 300 pieces struck in 1839, an estimate of 60-75 pieces are expected to exist, with this example being on of the finest remaining. Frosty gold tints with a light orange from 2 to 7 o'clock on the obverse, this piece displays an unusual attractiveness and is not dark as most examples that we come across. Only 2 pieces are graded finest by PCGS.
