  • Lot #607 - 1909-S VDB Lincoln PCGS MS-63RB CAC
  • Small Cents-Lincoln, Wheat
  • Steadfast, brick orange remains stoically resistant to sudden color shifts, but the luster is mildly subdued overall, and only the tiniest carbon flecks possible occasion the reverse. As the "low mintmark" obverse, the strike looks only average for this key entry, except that the reverse extreme right side, along the far edge of the wheat stalk, there is a bit of uneven softness visible. A glowing, desirable specimen with very minimal contact overall.

  • Lot #205 - 1812 PCGS MS-62
  • Hammer: $10,750
  • Gold $5-Capped Bust to Left Half Eagle
  • M. Diatom Collection. 24 graded MS-62, 95 higher at PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther 2, R.4+ is the second and rarer of only two die-marriages for 1812 that share a single obverse die. The easiest way to distinguish between the two is to look at the "D" in the denomination and note that it rests well left of the end of the stem above, while on BD-1, it is positioned about half way underneath the same stem. Population reports validate the relative scarcity, as over a handful of known Gem survivors for BD-1 have appeared in auction records, while the present BD-2 may have but a couple of Gem representatives in existence. For sure, the seemingly "plentiful" supply of all 1812s in MS-62 and above must be significantly inflated by resubmissions and crossovers, even given the reported mintage of nearly sixty-thousand pieces.

    The obverse die brought up nearly all of the finest details for the design, although a number of segments along the border between 10:00 and 12:00 are nearly missing due to adjustment marks, fortuitously isolated at the edge. A couple more appear on the bust, but none impede the primary focal areas, and the reverse shows an excellent strike as well, with no adjustment marks. Interestingly, the weight correction must have been rather ham-handed, because the thinning of that edge of the planchet (from the obverse filing) did cause a hint of softness in the corresponding denticles on the reverse between 6:00 and 8:00. A beautifully lustrous example with really only one luster graze on the reverse, in the upper field, the grade seems to be accurately pronounced by the presence of some light disturbances in the obverse left field.

  • Lot #781 - Complete collection of Mercury dimes in a Dansco 7123 album
  • Hammer: $5,500
  • Dimes-Mercury
  • Collector appeal: "A". An absolutely premium quality collection by comparison to the typical incomplete, or heavily inconsistent collection, the collector has here managed to compile a near-astonishing collection of Mercury dimes, the large majority of which reach easily into the AU/BU range. Numerous later examples are Choice BU and may contend for full Gem status. One could focus on the 1916-D alone, which is a gorgeous, original example (and not certified!!), genuine and likely to grade VF-25, unless the graders are simply having a bad day. The 1921 (VF) and 1921-D (XF) both exceed expectations, and numerous other non-key pieces should be examined. Although no overdate has been included, the consignor did include a 1945 "micro S". Plan to spend plenty of time with this one.
