Scarce proof type coin with lovely rose-colored fields and great eye appeal. Silky mirrors with a deep cameo resonance, this piece is bested only by a pair of NGC Proof 67+ examples. . The 1867 is rare in proof making this essentially a one-year type coin.
Scarce and desirable early half dime with the draped bust obverse and small eagle reverse. 13 stars surround Liberty on the obverse. The 1797 13-star half dime is an exceedingly difficult issue in any grade designated as R-6 in all grades by Logan-McCloskey. By that token, it is the scarcest of the four different LM varieties of this year.
This beautiful gem is the only MS66 to achieve CAC approval for quality and eye appeal. There is one finer (and MS67) and we shudder to think what it would bring on the market ($50,000+). If this coin were in an MS67 holder, you would still love it. Rich rainbow colors on both sides with pristine surfaces. A beauty. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.
We have had the honor and the privilege to place this coin seven times in the history of DLRC and it excites us each time we get to offer it. The grand-daddy of 20th Century silver coinage -- a 1901-S quarter in MS67! Rarity shouldn't exist this nice. Exhibiting splendid luster, a perfect strike and virtually flawless surfaces, this is one of the finest known of the 'king' of Barber quarters. A centerpiece for the finest of collections! Nicer than many of the other MS67 examples that have sold historically and rivals the MS68+ that we placed several years ago. A true treasure and a fantastic coin.
A beautiful choice Almost Uncirculated example of this popular and rare first year dollar issue. As a rarity, the 1794 needs no introduction. With a low original mintage of just 1,758 coins, this piece is desirable in any grade as experts suspect fewer than 100 coins remain. This particular piece is extremely special due to the relative lack of adjustment marks and the overall eye appeal. It's quite unusual to find an example of this date with the coveted CAC sticker and this coin is quite possibly the most wholesome AU 1794 dollar you are ever going to see. Almost all of these have been cleaned or repaired at some point yet still make their way into PCGS and NGC holders. In importance, the 1794 comes in at #20 in the 100 Greatest U.S. Coins book, by Garrett and Guth. It is currently quite notable as the finest known example (PCGS SP66) just sold for over $10+ million in January of last year. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.
Wow! This is one of the nicest 1901-P Morgan dollars we've ever offered. A rare date in mint state, this issue is prohibitive rare in gem as PCGS has only graded (3) examples to date above MS64. None have ever made an auction appearance but we expect they would be worth $500,000 and up. This lustrous high end MS64 might achieve MS65 status if it were a more common date but PCGS is very careful with 1901-P's and this coin is very sharp for the grade. White with a hint of gold and very clean of marks. A great coin.
An unbelievably beautiful example with beautiful mirrored fields and gorgeously frosted devices. Lovely green and blue tones highlight the overall appeal of this tremendous coin. Just 832 coins struck in the proof format for this issue.
A very scarce and desirable early quarter eagle with beautiful, proof-like fields on the obverse. Gorgeous luster with a light tint of purple around the obverse devices. One of just 3,327 coins struck in the year and most have been harshly cleaned or otherwise lost to numismatics. A great type coin.
Frosty mint luster and a rather strong strike highlight this nearly proof-like early gold type coin. The surfaces of the reverse are even more spectacular as they are nearly blemish-free with absolutely gorgeous yellow-gold tones.
Rarity-7. This 1864 pattern Seated half dollar is essentially a with-motto 1864. The added motto design was formally adopted until 1866, so this piece is known as a transitional. Housed in a first generation PCGS holder and CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.
