Our first highlight is a 1916 Barber 10c PCGS/CAC MS67+ from a popular final year of issue with amazing rainbow rim tones. Gorgeous fiery orange and red tints with light blue highlights, this piece is certainly one of the nicest Barber Dimes we've ever handled, especially with the CAC sticker and PCGS plus grade.
This week's second highlight is a 1944 10c PCGS MS68 FB. A lovely, original example of this tough date to find in such high grades. Pretty neon highlights on the reverse with splashes of yellow and rose throughout. With a population of seven pieces currently graded by PCGS with absolutely none graded finer, this coin is perfect for the high-end registry collector.
The third highlight is a popular key date in the Mercury Dime series that is tied with only a single other coin as the finest graded. This 1945 10c PCGS/CAC MS67+ FB is a gorgeously original piece with the scarce (and coveted) CAC seal of approval. With the other examples not obtaining the elusive sticker, this coin should be considered as the finest example of this key date with Full Bands.
Our fourth highlight is an 1878 Trade$ PCGS/CAC Proof 66. From a mintage of 900 coins, this example has gorgeous rainbow tones with pink, blue, and golden-blue tints. The 1873-78 Trade Dollar proofs are much scarcer than the 1880-83 (proof only) issues and are much harder to find, especially with CAC approval.
The final highlight is an 1871-CC $5 PCGS/CAC XF40. This coin is from a mintage of 20,770 pieces, most of which experienced heavy circulation as it was one of the first issues of the popular denomination distributed from the Carson City mint. A choice XF example, with nice orange-peel surfaces and even CAC approval.
Of course there are many other highlights, so be sure to browse all lots in this exciting new sale before it closes on Sunday, June 2nd.If you have any questions about coins in our auctions, or items for direct purchase, please call us at 800-776-0560, or send an email and we will get back to you immediately.
