|1913 U.S. $2.50 Gold Indian Quarter Eagle
The 1913 U.S. $2.50 Gold Indian Quarter Eagle is in a very tough to find brilliant uncirculated condition. The Indian Quarter Eagles of 1908-1929 are America’s first and only $2.50 gold pieces to feature an incuse design – flat surfaces are the highest points of the coin, with images and lettering recessed below the surface. Created by renowned sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt, these coins feature an actual Native American profile. Last struck over 80 years ago, this 90% fine gold classic from America’s last quarter eagle series will be a highlight in any U.S. coin collection.
|1882-CC Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1882-CC Morgan Silver Dollar is PCGS Slabbed and is in MS-62 condition; it very brilliant uncirculated.
Only about 2% of all Morgan silver dollars were struck at the short-lived frontier mint in Carson City, Nevada – a relatively small facility, it could not produce coins in the same quantities as other, larger mints. Just over 1.1 million 1882-CC Morgan silver dollars were struck. These coins of the Old West are in great demand among collectors.
|1883 Silver Hawaii Quarter
Scarce, Better Grade 1883 Silver Hawaii Quarter – only 499,974 minted. Also known as the Hapaha
Hawaiian coins are gradually withdrawn and replaced with American coins of the regular types. Retired pieces were melted. The sole exception is the Hapaha, having several rolls turned up after World War II. These coins are highly sought by collectors.
|1925-S California Diamond Jubilee Commemorative U.S. Half Dollar
Scarce Silver 1925-S California Diamond Jubilee Commemorative U.S. Half Dollar – only 86,594 minted. To capture the spirit of California’s diamond jubilee, sculptor Jo Mora came up with an artistic obverse design depicting a “Forty-Niner” panning for gold, with the inscriptions LIBERTY above, IN GOD WE TRUST to the left and CALIFORNIA DIAMOND JUBILEE and the date, 1925, below. The reverse features California’s state emblem: a grizzly bear adapted from the flag used in the so-called Bear Flag Revolt of 1846. Above the bear is the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM, while below are the legends UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and HALF DOLLAR.
|1809 Silver Capped Bust Half Dollar
Scarce, Better Date 1809 Silver Capped Bust Half Dollar
Designed by German-born John Reich. This era was one of Rubenesque beauty, as a glance at Scot’s dowdy Draped Bust obverse will show – fondly called as “Reich’s fat German mistress.”
|1928 $10 Gold Certificate
1928 $10 Gold Certificate – the first and only small-sized $10 Gold Certificates issued. They are very scarce and desirable bearing gold colored seals and serial numbers.
Roosevelt’s Gold Recall Order of 1933 called in millions of Gold Certificates which were destroyed. Those that were held back are now prized by collectors today.
|1929 Brown Seal $20 National Currency Note – Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Tough To Find 1929 Brown Seal $20 National Currency Note – Federal Reserve Bank of New York
This variety of notes was originally much more distinctive, sharing elements with the traditional design of National Bank Notes but unified in design with the new Federal Reserve Notes.
|1934 Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar
Better Date AU+ 1934 Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar
The design of the magnificent Liberty Walking half dollar was chosen in a competition among noted sculptors held by the Commission of Fine Arts in 1916. Adolph A. Weinman`s sketch models were selected for the dime, soon to be known as the “Mercury” dime, as well as for the Liberty Walking half dollar. Both coins were struck in 90% fine silver, and both have taken their rightful place among the most attractive and popular U.S. coins ever circulated.
