    Famous Key Date

    1916 Standing Liberty 25c PCGS/CAC MS65

    Coins We Love

    The 1916 is the key to the Standing Liberty quarter series, the 1916 is also the first year of issue. An attractive and original gem, this key date is very difficult to find in gem condition, let alone with the coveted CAC seal of approval. Just 52,000 coins were struck and most were not saved. CAC approved for quality.

    Very Popular Key Date

    1895-S $1 PCGS MS63

    Coins We Love

    The 1895-S is one our favorite dates in the series as a sleeper issue that is surprisingly difficult to locate in AU and above. Frosty, prooflike fields with plenty of luster, this piece is very attractive for the Morgan collector.

    Magnificent Gem Proof

    1893 $1 PCGS Proof 66+ DCAM

    Rare deep cameo gem from an original mintage of just 792 coins struck. Enchantingly deep mirrors contrast spectacularly against sharp, frosty design elements. Stunning eye appeal enhanced by patina of pale gold. PCGS+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.

    Better date, low mintage Classic head issue with nice luster and handsome tones of tangerine concentrated along the rims. Just 45,080 coins struck compared to over 500,000 in 1836.

    Rare Charlotte Issue!

    1861-C $5 PCGS AU55

    Coins We Love

    The 1861-C is a fascinating issue with many questions yet to be answered, thus leading to speculation amongst collectors and experts. The Confederacy took control of the mint before the production was complete at the beginning of the war, leaving 887 pieces still to be struck. The remaining coins were struck after the mint's employees took loyalty oaths to the Confederacy, and are loosely considered CSA coins. Unfortunately it's impossible to be assured of which coins are actually Confederate issues, but it has traditionally been thought that the pieces with a die crack through the top of AMERI were struck under the authority of the Confederacy.

    Rare Proof Half Eagle

    1875 $5 PCGS/CAC Proof 65 CAM

    Coins We Love

    From a mintage of just 20 pieces, this key date is completely underrated due to the rarity of its circulation strike cousin of the same date. Less than 10 pieces (probably fewer than 6-7) are known and this is the only survivor with CAC approval. This piece exhibits beautiful Cameo mirrors with lovely rose-gold hues. A gorgeous, attractively toned piece with spectacular eye appeal. CAC approved for quality.
