  • Lot #651 - 1928 PCGS MS-65FH
  • Quarter Dollars-Standing Liberty
  • Hands-down a full-head example, each of the three sprigs is clearly defined at Liberty's cap, and her facial details have been brought up to an exemplary level. Granted the shield displays the usual isolated soft areas, but each of the bosses has at least been touched by the dies. Stunning gem luster graces the entire almond-grey surface.

  • Lot #184 - 1871 PCGS MS-62BN
  • Hammer: $500
  • Small Cents-Indian Head
  • 3.5 diamonds show on the obverse. Planchet quality appears to be slightly nicer than is typical for 1871, a date known to have been often produced on poor quality stock. Slightly dulled luster and dull, narrow contact marks on the cheek likely determine the grade.

  • Lot #698 - 1895 PCGS PR-63+DCAM
  • Hammer: $48,000
  • Silver Dollar-Morgan
  • Mintage: 880. The official mintage is not what creates rarity for the 1895 Morgan dollar, as that is a mintage consistent with other proof emissions of the era. Rather, the legendary reputation surrounding production, and the desire on the part of many collectors to have a single example from every possible date/mintmark combination, combine to create a coin of exceptionally high esteem. No circulation strikes are known to exist, leaving the limited supply of proof coins to satisfy the requirements for enthusiasts.

    A few rapid-fire hairlines beneath the portrait probably offer the strongest contention for only the PF-63 numeric grade level, although PCGS may have augmented that to PF-63+ due to the remarkably clean cheek, as well as unexpectedly nice fields on the reverse. Perhaps as important, excellent cameo contrast develops from generous, consistent frosty texture upon the devices laying atop a beautifully mirrored backdrop. Liberal royal gold toning occupies the peripheral areas, settling more densely toward the rims while the central field areas feature medium patina. Although some subtle roller marks somehow remain over the ear, the strike is otherwise as expected of the era of well-produced proof dollars, featuring precisely struck details. The cataloger notes that what may be the remnant of a tiny spot removed from the field just right of arrow heads, and another just above the eagle's head, but these are trivial dalliances that may matter not at all to the collector eager to add the "King of Morgan Dollars" to his collection.
