Extremely Fine or finer. An exemplary coin for the grade, with traces of prooflike reflectivity which survived brief circulation. The fields and devices have scattered handling marks, none of which are particularly distracting. Toned with medium russet and blue near the rims, with the centers enhanced by golden accents which add further depth to the devices. Boldly struck throughout,...  more

Detail of About Uncirculated, but the surfaces have been whizzed and tooled. Snow white in color save for a trace of gold near the rims. The obverse fields show evidence of buffing and smoothing, perhaps to remove scratches or something similar. Evidence of smoothing is also present on Liberty's face and neck, and on the cloud below OF on the reverse. There are adjustment marks spanning...  more
1005 1802 O.101 (R-3) F $1,700.00
1802 O.101 (R-3). A solid Fine. Steel gray to silver on both sides with traces of iridescent toning...
A solid Fine. Steel gray to silver on both sides with traces of iridescent toning around the edge. The surfaces are average for the grade and there is one hidden scratch on the upper right reverse, grazing the cloud below OF and jumping to the right wing where it crosses three feathers into the left base of the first 'A' in AMERICA.
1006 1803 O.101 (R-3). Large 3 EF $800.00
1803 O.101 (R-3). Large 3. Extremely Fine, but gently cleaned in the past and a bit washed out today....
Extremely Fine, but gently cleaned in the past and a bit washed out today. Still white in color although specks of gray and gold are forming around the rims. The strike is average, with slight weakness on the shield lines and obverse star centers. Examination of the surfaces reveals a small nick near the center of Liberty's chest, and a thin pin scratch slips through the field from her...  more
1007 1803 O.102 (R-3). Large 3 AU $13,000.00
1803 O.102 (R-3). Large 3. About Uncirculated, nearly Choice. One of the finest seen of this variety,...
About Uncirculated, nearly Choice. One of the finest seen of this variety, and with exceptional eye appeal. The surfaces are excellent with minimal signs of handling from circulation and boast fiery orange-gold toning with a touch of iridescent blue near the edge. The strike is rock solid throughout, and there are no adjustment marks. A magnifier will discover a pair of die lumps, one...  more
1008 1805/4 O.102 (R-3) VG $550.00
1805/4 O.102 (R-3). Fine obverse, Very Good reverse. Rim Filed. The reverse rim shows minor filing...
Fine obverse, Very Good reverse. Rim Filed. The reverse rim shows minor filing from the left wing tip and above STATES. Light silver centers combine with darker gold and russet near the rims. Average surfaces show the expected wear and tear from circulation. The obverse is sharper than the reverse, with softness on the shield lines and a star or two above the eagle. The bold overdate...  more
1009 1805 O.111 CH AU $8,500.00
1805 O.111. A very Choice About Uncirculated, with claims to Mint State. Beautiful rose-gold with...
A very Choice About Uncirculated, with claims to Mint State. Beautiful rose-gold with teal on the obverse and reverse, toning which comes alive when examined under a light. The strike is sharp on Liberty's curls and the eagle, but most of the obverse stars lack their central definition. No rim marks or adjustment marks distract the eye, and the uppermost devices show just a trace of rub or...  more
1010 1806/5 O.104 (R-4). Brilliant Uncirculated BU $11,000.00
1806/5 O.104 (R-4). Brilliant Uncirculated, nearly Choice. Dark gun metal gray throughout with the...
- nearly Choice. Dark gun metal gray throughout with the centers slightly lighter rose-gold. Lustre peers out from beneath the toning. The surfaces show scattered handling ticks, including a tiny horizontal tick on Liberty's cheek and a minute round planchet flaw on her jaw behind her chin, which will serve to hallmark the present coin. As always, the strike is soft on the radial lines...  more
1011 1806 O.115. Pointed 6, Stem Through Claw EF $1,400.00
1806 O.115. Pointed 6, Stem Through Claw. A strong Extremely Fine or perhaps a bit better. Light silver...
A strong Extremely Fine or perhaps a bit better. Light silver with a touch of darker gold and blue near the rims with traces of russet toning over the surfaces. Sharply impressed and well preserved, with no significant nicks or bumps that warrant attention. The 'TY' of LIBERTY is boldly repunched on the die, and a thin crack extends from the date into the stars on the left.
1012 1807 O.110a. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $22,000.00
1807 O.110a. Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. A glorious example of this final year of issue for the...
A glorious example of this final year of issue for the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle type, with abundant mint bloom and strong lustre in the fields. Toned with rich yellow-russet on both sides, and framed with splashes of vibrant blue and red on the obverse, less so around the reverse rim. Examination will discover the most minor of surface marks and a nearly vertical nick below Liberty's...  more
