1845 Half Dime-Richmond Collection

Numismatic experts estimate that only 25 of these proof examples were minted for use in Proof Sets of the year. John Jay Pitmman never acquired an 1845 Proof Half Dime for his collection despite years of searching. Pop is 2 with 1 graded higher. From the Richmond Collection and priced slightly above the Trends of $30,000 but below the PCGS Collectors Universe list of $40,000! Keep in mind that a Bowers and Merena auction brought $27,500 for a comparable coin in March of 1998. A richly toned coin with an overlay of turquoise.


1902 Gold Quarter Eagle Liberty, NGC MS68

The population on this coin is six with none finer. A Mint State 68 specimen realized $16,000 three years ago in auction. It would be hard to find a coin that better exemplifies perfection than this one!


1848-D Gold Quarter Eagle, NGC MS61

A challenging issue in any grade as there were just 13,771 circulation strikes produced at the Dahlonega, Georgia facility. As with all of the Southern Mint gold, mint state specimens are scarce and quite in demand. Priced less than the Trends for a Mint State 60 of $10,500. Trends for a Mint State 62 is $13,500. Combined population for NGC/PCGS is 12/25 with no coins graded higher than Mint State 63.


1795 Flowing Hair Bust Dollar 2 Leaves, NGC XF45

The trials and tribulations in the infancy of all great nations can be easily documented by the early coinage of that nation. The United States of America is no exception. Congress, through the commission of the early Mint Director and Chief Engraver strived to depict the joy of freedom and liberty for which so many had fought by creating coins majestic and noble in appearance. The silver dollar was intended to be the cornerstone of America\\\'s coinage and it is with this intention that Robert Scot created his \\\"flowing hair\\\" design. The flowing hair is said to be Scot\\\'s symbolism for liberty. A two-year type, the \\\"flowing hair\\\" dollar was only produced in 1794 and 1795. The NGC population for our coin is 9/34 as compared to the PCGS pop of 36/72. Pair this coin with the slighlty less scarce 3 leaf variety we have available for a complete date set!


1890-CC Gold Double Eagle Liberty, MS61 PCGS

The 1890 Carson City Twenty is an obtainable coin in the lower XF/AU grades, but becomes quite scarce in the lower Mint State grades and virtually impossible in any grade after Mint State 62! There are none graded higher than MS63, with just six examples known in that grade. The Trends for a Mint State 62 coin is $15,000. A well-struck specimen with eye-catching characteristics!


1914 Gold Double Eagle Saint Gaudens, NGC MS65

A frosty, almost perfect specimen, there is little to dislike about this coin making an argument plasible for a higher grade! Priced at the Grey Sheet monthly of $21,500 and well below the Trends of $25,000. Only four coins graded higher from a mintage of 95,250 business strikes. A true gem!

"...I noticed you have some superb NGC coins . My compliments on a beautiful inventory and website."
"I have received the coin today and I am immensely pleased with it. I love the toning and I am sure the coin has finally found itself a safe home for many years. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and, even though I can afford to buy only 3-4 coins a year, I will certainly purchase more coins from you in the future. Thank you one more time."
