2230 1795 Taraszka 1, Breen 1-A. Thirteen Leaf Reverse CH AU $33,000.00
1795 Taraszka 1, Breen 1-A. Thirteen Leaf Reverse. Choice About Uncirculated. The obverse stars are...
Choice About Uncirculated. The obverse stars are arranged 10x5, the 5 in the date touches the bust heavily, and a bold, raised dot-dash can be seen near repunched left top of the 'Y' in LIBERTY. The obverse field bears a few hairlines, while the reverse displays distinctly prooflike flash with most of the eagle's breast feathers clearly defined. A small circular dig can be sought out...  more
2231 1795 Tar.1, Br.1-A. Thirteen Leaf Reverse AU $35,000.00
1795 Tar.1, Br.1-A. Thirteen Leaf Reverse. About Uncirculated. Obverse stars arranged 10x5, the 5...
About Uncirculated. Obverse stars arranged 10x5, the 5 in the date touches bust heavily. LIBERTY shows its 'Y' repunched at left top with a raised dash above it. Boldly struck and showing only the lightest wear with a few scattered obverse tics including a mark on the cap. The reverse is distinctly flashy and the coin may have seen a light brushing long ago. Here is an excellent choice...  more
2232 1795 Nine Leaf Reverse. Taraszka-3, Breen 4-C (High R-6) AU $240,000.00
1795 Nine Leaf Reverse. Taraszka-3, Breen 4-C (High R-6). The only reverse of this date and for that...
The only reverse of this date and for that matter the only reverse of this type to bear only nine leaves on the branch held in the eagle's talons. A wonderfully honest, entirely unmolested About Uncirculated specimen. Traces of coppery-red toning in the protected areas handsomely augment rich greenish yellow-golden surfaces, which are wholly free of the inherent surface flaws that sometimes...  more
2233 1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. CH AU $14,500.00
1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. Choice About Uncirculated. This obverse displays the New stars placed far from...
Choice About Uncirculated. This obverse displays the New stars placed far from curl but close to the back of Liberty's Cap. Boldly struck with only a whisper of wear to be sought out on the deep yellow-gold surfaces. The obverse field bears a scattering of bag marks, none of serious visual importance. The reverse field shows profound flash, and under magnification reveals a shallow rim...  more
2234 1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. CH AU $6,750.00
1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. Choice About Uncirculated. This coin displays the new type obverse stars with...
Choice About Uncirculated. This coin displays the new type obverse stars with one distant from the lowest curl, another close to the back of Liberty's Cap. Fully struck with bold ''spikes'' in the cap. Close study reveals polishing and some field tooling that give the superficial appearance of an ''arm's length Gem.'' Here is an affordable example of this classic early Gold coinage.
2235 1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. CH AU $9,250.00
1801 Tar.25, Br.2-B. Choice About Uncirculated. Mostly yellow-green toning with some coppery toning...
Choice About Uncirculated. Mostly yellow-green toning with some coppery toning hidden in the devices. Well struck with the reverse exhibiting prooflike fields. The lustre is still quite strong as it flows off the fields. A few very minuscule rim nicks are this coin's major detractions. A very attractive example of one of this country's early gold type coins.
2236 1803 Tar.30, Br.1-E. Large Stars, Tiny Star on Cloud CH AU $9,000.00
1803 Tar.30, Br.1-E. Large Stars, Tiny Star on Cloud. Choice About Uncirculated and not far from Mint...
Choice About Uncirculated and not far from Mint State. Extremely light wear can be found though the smooth fields retain a powerful reflectivity. Examination reveals a few light hairlines and a couple of tiny marks on either side. This reverse is remarkable for the star that boldly overlaps the right-most cloud and for another tiny star placed at that same cloud's center.

2237 1842'O' EF $1,700.00

Extremely Fine, perhaps better in terms of wear but the coin has been gently polished and now has a medium green patina. The strike is strong for this issue and the surfaces are a bit pebbly. A low mintage date with only 27,400 pieces struck.

1846'O' About Uncirculated and displaying mint frost beneath deep yellow-golden toning. Light repunching...
About Uncirculated and displaying mint frost beneath deep yellow-golden toning. Light repunching is evident above the top curve of the mintmark. There is a single small obverse copper stain near the top of Liberty's head, otherwise the coloration is very well balanced. This date is quite scarce in any condition, and can certainly be considered rare at or above the grade level offered...  more
2239 1848 CH AU $1,500.00
1848 Choice About Uncirculated, close to Mint State with considerable mint lustre coalescing around...
Choice About Uncirculated, close to Mint State with considerable mint lustre coalescing around the reliefs. All devices are crisp, those on the reverse slightly more so. Here is a very satisfying example of the early Liberty coinage, struck just before the roaring onset of the California Gold Rush.

1853'O' Choice About Uncirculated, a whisper from full Mint State. Substantial lustre joins with a...

2244 1868 CH AU $13,000.00
1868 Choice About Uncirculated and on the cusp of Mint State. Gorgeous prooflike glitter covers both...
Choice About Uncirculated and on the cusp of Mint State. Gorgeous prooflike glitter covers both sides of this sharply struck example of just 10,360 circulation strikes produced in this post-Civil War date. Such wear as may be present is exceedingly mild and the most diligent search turns up a very minor mark or two of minimal visual importance. Here is a coin of the highest quality that...  more

Extremely Fine. Some moderate field abrasion over well struck surfaces is joined by some light reflectivity under medium toning. A very scarce date with only 17,300 pieces struck.

1877'CC' Extremely Fine. Remarkably smooth fields highlight the boldly struck and fully detailed devices...
Extremely Fine. Remarkably smooth fields highlight the boldly struck and fully detailed devices on this example of only 3,332 Eagles struck at Carson City. This is a remarkably high grade for a Branch Mint coin essentially non-collectible in Mint State and rare in About Uncirculated. This coin compares favorably with the James A. Stack example and is sure to become a highlight of some...  more

1883 Choice Brilliant Proof. Lightly frosted, sharply detailed and defined reliefs are suspended over...
Lightly frosted, sharply detailed and defined reliefs are suspended over mirror-flashing fields of almost startling intensity.
