1093 1836 Reeded Edge (Low Rarity-7 as Proof). Choice Brilliant Proof CH BR PF $32,500.00
1836 Reeded Edge (Low Rarity-7 as Proof). Choice Brilliant Proof. One of handful reportedly struck...
One of handful reportedly struck in Proof, the first official coinage on the new steam coining press. Breen states in his Encyclopedia that at least a dozen are known, and given the number of auction appearances in the past few decades even that estimate may be too low. A reasonably attractive coin that has golden-russet toning over the obverse and reverse, with silver-gray intermixed. The...  more
1094 1836 Reeded Edge. Brilliant Uncirculated BU $4,600.00
1836 Reeded Edge. Brilliant Uncirculated. The fields reveal some barely noticeable hairlines which...
The fields reveal some barely noticeable hairlines which are toned over with lovely lilac gray and gold near the rims. Identifiable by a small nick at the top of Liberty's chest, another midfield across from her chin. On the reverse the surfaces are similar, and a thin die crack extends down from the beaded border past the final 'S' of STATES, this die crack is present on the Proofs and must...  more
1095 1837 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $475.00
1837 Brilliant Uncirculated. A frosty white coin that has a touch of peripheral gold. The central...
A frosty white coin that has a touch of peripheral gold. The central strike is sharp, but a few of the surrounding stars lack their full radial lines. Strong lustre and eye appeal despite minor hairlines and a thin scratch on the upper reverse. Examination of the obverse edge will find a very minor file mark above Liberty's cap. For the grade the present coin has pleasing eye appeal.
1096 1838 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $3,250.00
1838 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to a Gem grade. Blazing lustre in the fields and generally...
- with claims to a Gem grade. Blazing lustre in the fields and generally bright and untoned, save for a blush of gold around the edges. The strike is quite sharp, with bold details on Liberty's curls and the stars too, similar crispness is found on the eagle. Examination finds minimal signs of surface hairlines or marks, although the extreme edge has a few trivial scuffs or nicks from...  more
1097 1838'O' High Rarity-6 EF $220,000.00
1838'O' High Rarity-6. Extremely Fine. The surfaces are a gray color which are a trifle dull, but...
Extremely Fine. The surfaces are a gray color which are a trifle dull, but are enhanced by some peripheral gold toning. Examination will find trivial handling nicks from brief circulation, or this might be a coin which may have been a pocket piece for a short while. For identification, there is a small nick on Liberty's face below and behind her eye. Sharply struck as are all seen of this rare issue, and believed...  more
1098 1839'O' Choice Brilliant Proof. Rarity-7. One of Five or Fewer Known CH BR PF $55,000.00
1839'O' Choice Brilliant Proof. Rarity-7. One of Five or Fewer Known. A beautiful example of this...
A beautiful example of this extremely rare coin. The surfaces are toned with iridescent blue and champagne with traces of dark green and russet intermixed. Faint hairlines are present which limit the technical grade, but not the overall appeal. For identification, there is a minute nick at the base of Liberty's neck, above the '1' in the date, and a small toning speck over the eagle's head. Struck with the...  more
1099 1839'O' CH EF $755.00
1839'O' Choice Extremely Fine. A rather attractive coin for the grade, with traces of lustre in the...
Choice Extremely Fine. A rather attractive coin for the grade, with traces of lustre in the protected areas, pleasing steel gray color with a hint of peripheral gold, and decent surfaces. An early die state with trace evidence of the usually seen encircling die cracks through the stars and legend. Scarce this nice, and in demand for the short-lived type and obverse mintmark.
