1857 Type of '57. Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. The surfaces are toned down a bit from age,...
The surfaces are toned down a bit from age, but the eye appeal remains and the strike is sharp. A thin die line is found within the left wing of the eagle, aiming toward the 'T' of UNITED. One minor tick above the '18' is present, and some minor specks are noted.
2 1857 Type of '57. Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated VERY CH BU $500.00
1857 Type of '57. Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. A small rim tick is found near the 10:00 position....
A small rim tick is found near the 10:00 position. Lustrous and attractive, with a couple of tiny specks hiding on the devices. A thin die line extends from the eagle's beak vertically to the 'U' of UNITED. On the reverse a small rim break is found on the left, with a die crack extending to the maple leaves in the wreath.

1857 Type of '57. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Typical for the grade save for a streak of residue...
Typical for the grade save for a streak of residue across the right obverse. Fairly well struck although a little hazy from decades of storage. This coin has a similar die line through the left wing of the eagle as seen on the first 1857 Cent in this collection.

1858 Large Letters. High Leaves. Brilliant Uncirculated or finer based on the lustre, however some...
- or finer based on the lustre, however some scattered verdigris adheres to the surfaces. A couple of nicks through STATES.

1858 Small Letters. High Leaves. Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Slightly prooflike surfaces are...
Slightly prooflike surfaces are attractive and are starting to lightly tone. A thin die crack extends through the base of TATES OF AMERICA including the eagle's tail, and thus mimics the Large Letters style. The strike is lacking full definition on the eagle's breast.

1858 Small Letters. Low Leaves. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. A pleasing coin that retains the lustre...

7 1859 Very Choice Proof VERY CH PF $900.00
1859 Very Choice Proof. Nice cameo contrast on Liberty, and her cheek and neck are of exceptional...
Nice cameo contrast on Liberty, and her cheek and neck are of exceptional quality. Subtle traces of deposits are noted in the obverse legend, and a single speck touches the 'C' of CENT. There are some microscopic tics in a line between 'AM' of AMERICA. A single year type coin and certainly one of the finer survivors of 800 Proofs struck for the year.
8 1859 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $225.00
1859 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Lustrous and an average strike for this issue with softness found...
Lustrous and an average strike for this issue with softness found on the reverse wreath. Examination will find a couple of minor specks and spots, plus some faint pin scratches below 'UN' of UNITED where a spot was partially removed.

1860 Pointed Bust. Brilliant Uncirculated. A lustrous coin that has nice appeal, however, there is...
A lustrous coin that has nice appeal, however, there is a pin scratch crossing the top of the obverse. Sharply struck and toned with the light wood-grain texture commonly seen. Scarce.

1861 Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. A sharply struck, attractive coin to represent this date. No problematic...
A sharply struck, attractive coin to represent this date. No problematic spots or specks and the surfaces are delightfully free of bagmarks or signs of handling. The color is slightly faded as expected by the passage of time.
11 1861 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $150.00
1861 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Another sharply struck example of this date, however, the surfaces...
Another sharply struck example of this date, however, the surfaces of the present coin have scattered spots on the obverse. The date is not as bold as the surrounding devices.
12 1862 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,300.00
1862 Gem Brilliant Proof. A resplendent example of this scarce issue. Toned with bright yellow-green...
A resplendent example of this scarce issue. Toned with bright yellow-green through the feathers and head, with matching traces on the reverse. The devices show strong frost when compared with the reflective fields and the surfaces are clean with only a hint of a speck on the lower head. Just 550 Proofs were struck of this date, most surviving in decidedly lower grades than seen here.
13 1862 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,000.00
1862 Gem Brilliant Proof. A close match to the prior coin with well frosted devices and lettering,...
A close match to the prior coin with well frosted devices and lettering, and spot-free surfaces. The strike is absolute and sharp. Bright coppery-straw throughout and a delight for the specialist. Having two splendid Proof examples to choose from presents a rare opportunity for the advanced numismatist.
14 1862 Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated VERY CH BU $140.00
1862 Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. A touch softly struck on the wreath and shield, but lustrous...

17 1863 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $100.00

18 1864 Snow PR-1. Copper-Nickel. Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,300.00
1864 Snow PR-1. Copper-Nickel. Gem Brilliant Proof. An outstanding example of this elusive issue....
An outstanding example of this elusive issue. A mere 370 Proofs were struck of the copper-nickel variant. Dusted with minute specks over the vibrant mint color, and the haze of time has had little effect to diminish the delicate reflective fields and frosted devices. A magnificent Gem that will undoubtedly excite even the most jaded numismatist as so few decidedly original pieces cross...  more
19 1864 Snow PR-1. Copper-Nickel. Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $400.00
1864 Snow PR-1. Copper-Nickel. Very Choice Brilliant Proof. Fiery red color in the fields, although...

1864 Copper-Nickel. Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. A lustrous, well struck coin that has a hint...

21 1864 Copper-Nickel. Brilliant Uncirculated BU $90.00
1864 Copper-Nickel. Brilliant Uncirculated. Faded mint color that has turned to light tan on both...
Faded mint color that has turned to light tan on both sides. Examination will find two minor specks on the obverse, one on the arrow shaft of the reverse. The strike is soft as so often seen on these tough as nails planchets. The nickel alloy devastated the dies, causing cracks and rim cuds on most of the coins struck, and many examples show striking softness as seen here.
22 1864 Bronze. Brilliant Proof BR PF $350.00
1864 Bronze. Brilliant Proof. Mostly Red with slight fading on both sides. There are two minor spots...
Mostly Red with slight fading on both sides. There are two minor spots on the obverse, one above Liberty's ear, the other at the lower feather tip. On the reverse there is a minute fleck of carbon on the ribbon, and a small stain on the lower right reverse rim near the bottom arrow point. One of just 300 coined in Proof with the bronze planchets.

1864 Bronze. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Red and Brown with the original red color still dominating...

24 1864 Bronze. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Brown CH BU $100.00
1864 Bronze. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Brown with touches of faded golden lustre. Sharply impressed...

25 1864-L Snow 14. Repunched '6.' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Brown VERY CH BU $450.00
1864-L Snow 14. Repunched '6.' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Brown with traces of original red...
- with traces of original red evident in the fields. A sharply impressed coin that shows slight repunching on the '6'. One speck in the field between the lowest pair of arrowheads, and a thin die crack from the middle arrow point to the rim and another through the 'R' of AMERICA to the rim. One of the key dates to the series which is difficult to find this well preserved. A premier example...  more

1864-L Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Red and Brown. A hint of orange-red on the obverse, deeper on...

1865 Fancy '5' Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Red and Brown with red still dominating the surfaces....
- with red still dominating the surfaces. A couple of trivial specks have formed, and the strike is soft on the obverse center. A die crack runs through the lower portion of the date.
30 1866 Very Choice Brilliant Proof. Red and Brown VERY CH BR PF $250.00
1866 Very Choice Brilliant Proof. Red and Brown. The Proofs were all struck with the same pair of...
The Proofs were all struck with the same pair of dies for this year, with a small mintage of 725 pieces.
