2559 1816 Newcomb 2. Mint State 63 (see below) $950.00
1816 Newcomb 2. Mint State 63. Randall Hoard variety. Both sides exhibit partial mint red, fading...
Randall Hoard variety. Both sides exhibit partial mint red, fading to light tan, and quite attractive. The surfaces are clean with minimal signs of handling. Identifiable by a short series of nicks in the left obverse field and a trivial toning speck below 'AT' of STATES. Usual later die state with extensive rim crumbling along the upper right obverse including above stars 11 and 12,...  more
2560 1817 N.11. Wide Date, Spaced 1 817, High Leaf Under Center of 'S'. Mint State-63 MS-63 $1,100.00
1817 N.11. Wide Date, Spaced 1 817, High Leaf Under Center of 'S'. Mint State-63.  Light brown to...
Light brown to olive with some fading red areas on the reverse. Cartwheel lustre and excellent surfaces throughout. Identifiable by a minor tick on Liberty's cheek and a minute edge nick on the reverse above the 'A' of STATES. Tied with perhaps a half dozen for the 4th finest of this variety. Early die state with no rim crumbling, and the recutting on the 'N' in CENT clear.
2561 1817 N.13. Close Date, Double Denticle Left of Date, 'C' in CENT Leans Right MS-63 $950.00
1817 N.13. Close Date, Double Denticle Left of Date, 'C' in CENT Leans Right.  Mint State-63.  A boldly...
Mint State-63. A boldly struck example of this variety which retains full cartwheel lustre. This would be a full Mint State-65 were it not for an old carbon spot right of the 'Y' in LIBERTY and a few others of less consequence. Intermediate die state with the engraver's scratch barely extending beyond the inner curve of the 'C' in AMERICA. Although a Randall Hoard variety, the present...  more
2562 1821 N.1 ¾ (R-6). Proof-64 PF-64 $26,000.00
1821 N.1 ¾ (R-6). Proof-64. Red. One of the finer surviving examples of this rare early Proof....
Red. One of the finer surviving examples of this rare early Proof. The fields and devices are wonderfully red, there being only the slightest degree of fading. Liberty is particularly well frosted and stands out clearly in contrast to deeply reflective mirror fields. Only minor hairlines are present, and the fields are almost entirely free of other signs of contact from handling. Identifiable by a...  more
2563 1837 N.7, 8. Plain Hair Chord, Wider more Rounded Bust, Close Date MS-63 $800.00
1837 N.7, 8. Plain Hair Chord, Wider more Rounded Bust, Close Date,  Large Letters. Mint State-63...
Large Letters. Mint State-63 with Claims to Mint State-65. Beautiful light brown to tan on the obverse, virtually free of contact save for a couple of microscopic ticks. There is one minute speck below the 'Y' of LIBERTY, and the reverse is perfectly matched in color and surface quality to the obverse. Thin arcing die crack on the upper reverse. This is the earlier die state (old...  more
2564 1841 N.1 (R-6). Choice Proof-63 CH PF $16,000.00
1841 N.1 (R-6). Choice Proof-63. Red. Bright Red throughout, the surfaces being very pleasing for...
Red. Bright Red throughout, the surfaces being very pleasing for the grade. This is a later die state of this rare Proof-only die pairing. There is an ever so trivial speck of carbon below Liberty's chin, as well as another between the '84' in the date. On the reverse, a thin hairline extends above the 'NE' of ONE. At the center of the edge adjacent to star twelve, there is a minute...  more
2565 1841 N.6. This is the Newcomb Plate Coin. Mint State-67 MS-67 $5,500.00
1841 N.6. This is the Newcomb Plate Coin. Mint State-67. Full red obverse and reverse, with outstanding...
Full red obverse and reverse, with outstanding eye appeal and mint color throughout. One minor speck of fading is found below Liberty's hair bun, and a thin keg mark is present at the center of the reverse between the 'N's, and a dull nick on the center of the 'E' of CENT. Further identification features are a minute edge flaw above star two, another similar minor flaw below 'ST' of STATES...  more
2566 1849 N.18 (R-7). Proof-64 PF-64 $16,000.00
1849 N.18 (R-7). Proof-64. Red and Brown. This delicately faded red specimen exhibits iridescent hues...
Red and Brown. This delicately faded red specimen exhibits iridescent hues of pale olive and brown in the fields. Close examination reveals only a handful of trivial carbon specks, one of which is located in the field at the tip of Liberty's bust. As expected, this glorious coin is fully struck throughout, with all of the stars showing their radial centers. The striking quality of these later Proofs...  more
2567 1854 N.23. Mint State-65 MS-65 $1,500.00
1854 N.23. Mint State-65. This glorious Gem is a bit muted but is quite close to full mint red. Original...
This glorious Gem is a bit muted but is quite close to full mint red. Original mint lustre cartwheels over the surfaces giving an astounding level of eye appeal. The strike is quite bold with the exception of a few stars that are a trifle flat. A stupendous example that has far better eye appeal than most similarly graded coins and is free of any of the pesky spots that are normally...  more
2568 1855 N.11 (Low R-7). Slanting 5's. Gem Proof-65 GEM PF $6,500.00
1855 N.11 (Low R-7). Slanting 5's. Gem Proof-65. Brown. Light chocolate-brown toning still retains...
Brown. Light chocolate-brown toning still retains considerable underlying mint red. Iridescent champagne and lilac highlights enhance both the fields and design features when examined under a light. All surfaces are wonderfully free of disturbing spots or contact marks that warrant attention. Extremely rare. Although no provenance is known, this coin could in all probability be traced into...  more
2569 1856 N.5. Slanting 5, Minute lines at Earlobe. Proof-64 PF-64 $6,500.00
1856 N.5. Slanting 5, Minute lines at Earlobe. Proof-64. Gloriously warm rose-red surfaces offer flashing...
Gloriously warm rose-red surfaces offer flashing brilliance in the nearly pristine fields, light rose on the bust of Liberty and tantalizing blue on the leaves of the reverse wreath. PCGS has certified 17 Proofs of this important date, only 10 in this coin's remarkable grade. PCGS PR64RB.
2570 1856 N.6. Upright 5. Mint State-65 MS-65 $1,000.00
1856 N.6. Upright 5. Mint State-65. Red but starting to fade to brown on both sides. An early die...
Red but starting to fade to brown on both sides. An early die state and well preserved, with minimal signs of handling. The diagnostic die lumps on Liberty's face are present, and it appears the serif of an additional '1' protrudes from the forward truncation of Liberty's neck, and the die file lines are present above OF. Strong visual appeal for a Large Cent, as most have faded to tan...  more
2571 1857 N.3 (High R-4). Small Date. Proof-65 PF-65 $10,000.00
1857 N.3 (High R-4). Small Date. Proof-65. Red and Brown. Either side of this lovely coin offers well...
Red and Brown. Either side of this lovely coin offers well balanced faded red mint color accented by delicate brown overtones. The surfaces are very clean and show no signs of contact. Identifiable by a short lint mark between the final pair of stars near the dentils, and a minor speck below the 'E' of STATES. No other spots or traces of carbon present themselves. Struck slightly off center...  more
