    Better S-Mint

    1928-S 5c PCGS/CAC MS65+ ex: D.L. Hansen


    Better date S-mint. This high-end gem displays sharply struck details throughout. Warm patina of olive-gold is highlighted by bright pink, lime, and orange iridescence tints brought out under the light. CAC approved for quality. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.

    Popular Final Year of Issue

    1891 25c PCGS Proof 67 ex: D.L. Hansen


    Final year of issue. Mintage of just 600 coins struck in proof format, which is quite low for this series. PCGS has graded only two examples finer at this level of contrast. Deep rich olive toned obverse surfaces reveal blue, gold, and blush undertones when titled under a light. The reverse remains white and brilliant save for a crescent of purple toning on the lower rim.

    Rare Two Year Type

    1796 50c PCGS F12 (15 Stars) ex: Hansen Collection


    The Draped Bust, Small Eagle half dollars of 1796 and 1797 have long been considered rarities of the U.S. half dollar series, joined together by both their low, combined mintage of 3,918 pieces, as well as by their status as a two-year design type. Mint records note that all of the coins dated 1796 were struck and delivered in 1797. Beyond that, actual mintages for the different issues are just educated guesses. Approximately half of the mintage was dated 1796, and the other half 1797. A tough coin to locate in any state, this piece is bested by a VF30 that resides in the primary collection of Hansen coins.
