Our fourth highlight is a 1911-D $10 PCGS MS63. It is a very desirable key date with pretty yellow-gold surfaces, plenty of luster and no spots. Just 30,100 coins were struck of this issue.
Our fifth highlight is a 1920-S $10 PCGS/CAC AU53. With a mintage of just 126,500, this is the second most important date in the series. Lustrous with light wear, this piece is CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.
The sixth highlight coin is an 1850-O $20 NGC AU55. A scarce New Orleans-issue Double Eagle with oodles of luster.
The final highlight is an 1893-CC $20 NGC MS63 ex: Battle Born Collection. A surprisingly nice mint state example of this popular and scarce Carson City issue with a mintage of just 18,402 coins. The light cleaning is really minor, and we'd like this coin in a regular holder.
