Our first highlight is an 1802 $2 1/2 NGC/CAC AU55. From a tiny mintage of 3,035 the 1802 quarter eagle is a wonderful represent of this rare Capped bust type design. Frosty, lustrous surfaces with a lack of significantly detracting adjustment marks, this fresh example is certainly high end for the grade. CAC approved for quality. A wonderful addition to any type set. After a brief hiatus (since 1798) from the minting of gold quarter eagles, the US Mint produced approximately 3,035 pieces in 1802.
This week's second highlight is an 1836 $5 PCGS MS65 (OGH). The popular Classic head type coin is well represented here with this absolutely beautiful specimen, boasting nice warm gold patination and resplendent luster. One of two examples graded this high by PCGS, with no other examples graded finer.
The third highlight is a 1907-D $10 PCGS MS65. Tied with a single other coin at PCGS as the finest graded. The surfaces are silky smooth with fantastic luster and gorgeous eye appeal. Final year of Liberty design.
The final highlight is a S.S. Republic Shipwreck: 1865 $20 NGC/CAC MS61 (Date in Rim). An interesting Civil War date variety with a misplaced date. Recovered from the SS Republic, this piece is rare due to the misplaced date as well as for being salvaged from the famous shipwreck. CAC approved for quality.
