2598 1866 With Rays. Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $2,500.00
1866 With Rays. Gem Brilliant Proof. An exceptional strike shows needle-sharp detail in both shield...
An exceptional strike shows needle-sharp detail in both shield and rays, free of the die cracks that this complex design encouraged. Smooth silvery surfaces display the faintest hazy whitish toning. A splendid choice for either Type or date collection.
2599 1867 Rays CH BU $1,400.00

A sharply struck Choice Brilliant Uncirculated specimen that exhibits claims to a Gem distinction. This premium quality, nicely frosted coin enjoys outstanding definition for an example of this scarce two-year type.
2600 1867 Rays BU $275.00

A strong, handsome Brilliant Uncirculated or better specimen. Frosty lustre is accented by a delicate hint of olive-golden toning. The reverse strike is much sharper than normally encountered on this issue.
2601 1870 Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $300.00

The pleasing coin offers a lovely contrast of its subtly frosted devices with the deep mirror fields on which they appear to float. A couple of exceedingly small freckles keep this delightful coin from a higher grade, but these are fewer than generally encountered. Here is a pleasing coin for Type or date collector.
2602 1872 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $500.00
1872 Gem Brilliant Proof. There is a trivial speck or two, otherwise the surface quality of this pale...
There is a trivial speck or two, otherwise the surface quality of this pale golden example approaches perfection. Needle-sharp, frosty devices float in smooth satin-mirror fields. Full Gem examples such as the coin offered here certainly warrant a premium, as the surviving population of this date within the grade range in question is only a fraction of that of any common date. NGC PF65.
2603 1873 Closed 3. Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $325.00
1873 Closed 3. Gem Brilliant Proof. A precise strike creates the deeply frosted devices that give...
A precise strike creates the deeply frosted devices that give this delightful coin its excellent eye appeal. The color is steel gray over intensely deep ''watery'' mirror fields. Here is a very attractive Proof that is certain to attract both serious attention and spirited bidding.
2604 1875 Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $550.00

Essentially spotless silver surfaces exhibit a strong reflective gleam on this later-date Proof strike. One of 700 struck, and a virtual Gem in overall visual appeal.
2605 1882 Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $550.00

- and just on the cusp of the Gem category. The reverse is easily Gem. The obverse reveals only a few insignificant microscopic specks. Pale olive-gold toning complements fully struck satin-mirror surfaces. One of 3100 such proofs struck of this date.
