2026 1796 No Stars. Breen 1, Bass-Dannreuther 2 (R-5) AU $131,000.00
1796 No Stars. Breen 1, Bass-Dannreuther 2 (R-5). A solid About Uncirculated. The obverse shows lustre...
A solid About Uncirculated. The obverse shows lustre in the fields and minor hairlines from circulation, the reverse retains more lustre and is quite attractive as well. The strike is bold on all devices, even the 'E' of LIBERTY is clear although far from bold, as this letter has the unfortunate location of being opposite the eagle's tail, and is always found weak to some degree. No adjustment...  more
2027 1796 No Stars. Br.1, BD-2 (R-5) EF $32,000.00
1796 No Stars. Br.1, BD-2 (R-5). Extremely Fine in strict terms of wear. All major details are pleasingly...
Extremely Fine in strict terms of wear. All major details are pleasingly clear but the surfaces show the effects of jewelry use at one time. Careful examination shows subtle indentations in the denticles suggesting that old, non-destructive prong-mounts were used and no solder was applied to the coin. Although it has had its share of adventures over two centuries, this piece is still...  more
2028 1797 Br.1. BD-4 (R-6+) CH VF $21,000.00
1797 Br.1. BD-4 (R-6+). Choice Very Fine. The surfaces may have been lightly cleaned in the past,...
Choice Very Fine. The surfaces may have been lightly cleaned in the past, and show a bright yellow-gold hue. Moderate wear as expected for the grade. A strong die crack formed on the right side of the obverse die very early in the emission of these, and in fact no coins are known without this die crack. On this middle die state example, the crack has formed a retained cud, with the 'Y' and all the...  more
2029 1802/1 Br.1. BD-7. Brilliant Uncirculated BU $19,000.00
1802/1 Br.1. BD-7. Brilliant Uncirculated. Delightful prooflike surfaces are struck in yellow-gold....
Delightful prooflike surfaces are struck in yellow-gold. An uneven edge area at the lower left obverse and some light hairlines at the left obverse field. Excellent lustre and an adequate strike gives this coin wonderful eye appeal. A mintage of only 3,035 pieces shows just how difficult this date is to acquire.
2030 1805 Br.1. BD-12 CH EF $5,000.00
1805 Br.1. BD-12. Choice Extremely Fine in terms of wear but the coin has been previously cleaned...
Choice Extremely Fine in terms of wear but the coin has been previously cleaned and now exhibits a light greenish-gold tint. The reverse shows a few hairline scratches over somewhat reflective surfaces. The strike is decent with some lustre still remaining. This early Quarter Eagle still has a decent appearance and should be viewed closely.

1829 Br.1, BD.24 (R-5). Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to Choice. The Garrett Coin and Akers...
- with claims to Choice. The Garrett Coin and Akers Plate Coin. One of the difficult type coins of this era to obtain, with few being offered of quality in any given year. The present coin has delightfully clean surfaces, which match its stellar pedigree. It is fully struck and shows bright yellow-gold color throughout. The lustre is strong and undisturbed save for a scattering of trivial...  more

1839'O' Choice About Uncirculated and very close to higher grade. A bold strike is highlighted by...
Choice About Uncirculated and very close to higher grade. A bold strike is highlighted by rich gold lustre, as very few trivial marks can be found with sufficient effort. With only 17,781 struck, this date is the second lowest New Orleans mintage of any Quarter Eagle type, and is most often found in the Very Fine-Extremely Fine range.

2034 1843'O' Large Date, Plain 4 CH AU $1,500.00

Choice About Uncirculated. A pale lemon yellow example with some light marks found under magnification. A well struck example with the mintmark repunched as is always the case for this variety.
2035 1845 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $5,250.00

- and nearly in the Choice category. Bright lemon-yellow lustre gives this coin its pleasing vital glow. A bold strike gives the coin its razor-sharp devices. The fields are smooth, but a glass finds a trivial mark or two of little consequence.
2036 1845'D' VF $1,250.00
1845'D' Easily Very Fine or better and retaining quite a bit of mint frost at the peripheries, as...
Easily Very Fine or better and retaining quite a bit of mint frost at the peripheries, as well as in the protected areas of the central devices. Smooth and free of any defects that require mention. This date is both very elusive, and highly collectible in the grade range offered here. One of only 19,460 pieces struck.
2037 1846'D' EF $1,750.00
1846'D' Extremely Fine. Deep greenish-gold toning over surfaces that exhibit a few scattered marks....
Extremely Fine. Deep greenish-gold toning over surfaces that exhibit a few scattered marks. The strike is typical with parts of the design well struck and other areas (the central part of the eagle) are weak. A few light hairlines are present but overall this coin has a reasonable appearance for a coin from this difficult mint.
2038 1854 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $1,000.00

- and approaching Choice. Splendid deep golden lustre beautifies a bold impression of the dies. The shield is very deeply impressed and displays an indistinct left border.
2039 1854 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $650.00

- and close to Choice. Vibrant gold lustre joins a bold strike. The shield shows fragmentary stripes and its left border merges with the crisply defined eagle.

1856'C' About Uncirculated. Some light nicks in the upper left obverse field as well as a general...
About Uncirculated. Some light nicks in the upper left obverse field as well as a general surface granularity are seen. A lamination extends from Miss Liberty's jaw to star one. Light orange-gold toning with plenty of lustre still remaining. One of only 7,913 pieces struck making this issue quite difficult to acquire.
2041 1856'O' CH AU $3,000.00
1856'O' Choice About Uncirculated and very close to full Mint State. Greenish-gold toning over moderately...
Choice About Uncirculated and very close to full Mint State. Greenish-gold toning over moderately struck surfaces. The lustre is satiny and attractive. A couple of minor rim imperfections on the reverse do not detract much. Very scarce in this wonderful state of preservation.
2042 1874 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $600.00
1874 Brilliant Uncirculated. A precise strike and semi-prooflike surfaces distinguish this example....
A precise strike and semi-prooflike surfaces distinguish this example. Close examination reveals a light dipping in the coin's past.

Here is a coin of stunning beauty, boasting subtle contrast of lightly frosted devices and lavishly prooflike, wonderfully mark-free fields. This is an exceptional representative of a Gay Nineties date that is elusive in this rarefied grade.

1898 Superb Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. This beautiful little example screams with frosty mint lustre....
This beautiful little example screams with frosty mint lustre. A forceful strike has boldly imparted even the most minute details. A gorgeous lemon yellow jewel in an early NGC holder. NGC MS66.

1901 Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. All surfaces display the most pleasing uniform yellow-gold lustre...

Vibrant full glittering mint lustre transforms this example of a late Liberty date into a gleaming jewel-like beauty showing this long-lived design at its finest.
2048 1907 Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $6,500.00

- a near-Gem of compelling beauty. Lightly frosted reliefs float upon the deepest mirror fields on this outstanding example of a Proof mintage of only 154 pieces. Here is a totally desirable representative of the final Liberty date and the last Brilliant Proof struck before the new Indian design was introduced with its distinctive Matte Proofs that replaced the mirror-field coins struck...  more

2050 1907 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $350.00
