Our first highlight is an 1856 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS/CAC Proof 63 (Eagle Eye Photo Seal). This CAC approved coin is a famous key date from an original mintage of an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 coins with an attractive matte finish.
Our second highlight is a 1901-S 25c PCGS/CAC MS67+. The 1901-S quarter is by far the most famous key date in the Barber quarter series. It's so popular as a date that this issue transcends the series, and key date collectors seek this coin out. With gorgeous pastel tints, this piece is absolutely outstanding for the grade with pleasing patches of violet and russet toning. PCGS has just two specimens of this extremely rare coin in this grade and only one higher. The MS68+ example is housed in the Hansen Collection and this would be the finest example that is available for collectors.
The third highlight coin is a 1797 50c PCGS/CAC F15. This piece is CAC approved for quality with superb original surfaces and excellent strike. Pinkish grey fields with lighter grey devices and inscriptions give this a pleasing overall look and outstanding eye appeal.
The fourth highlight is an 1893-CC $1 NGC MS63. A popular, scarce Carson City Morgan dollar issue with outstanding white surfaces and luster -- an outstanding piece.
Our final highlight is an 1801 $10 NGC MS61. There is nice luster and warm gold toning on this very early and rare Capped Bust $10.
