This week's first highlight selection is an 1814 1c PCGS MS63 BN (Plain 4). Nicely lustrous with faint red-brown tints near the rim. Above average eye appeal and very difficult in uncirculated grades.
This week's second highlight selection is an 1857-S SS Central America Shipwreck $20 PCGS/CAC MS62 (20B, Bold S). Exciting double eagle gold coin from the famous SS Central America shipwreck. CAC approved for quality.
Our third highlight is an1861-D G$1 PCGS F12. The 1861-D is a famous numismatic rarity. Other than the super-rare (and largely uncollectible) 1849-C Open Wreath gold dollar, this is the scarcest coin in the entire series. Serious numismatists and Confederate historians agree that the real claim to fame for this issue lies in the fact that it is the only official U.S. coin to be struck under Confederate control. The rebel forces seized the mint in Dahlonega, Georgia in early 1861 and struck approximately 1,000 specimens, but experts believe that fewer than 75 coins exist today.This particular example is a wholesome Fine 12, graded by PCGS. Most examples of this date appear in AU grades, making an "affordable" issue somewhat of an unusual find.
Of course there are many other highlights, so be sure to browse all lots in this exciting new sale before it closes on Sunday, November 12th.
