Immaculate fields show the delightful textured surfaces characteristic of the first date, both fields and diamond-sharp devices show a whisper of clear tawny red-gold to assure maximum eye appeal. One of 1,520 Proofs struck; PCGS has certified only 95 at this lofty grade. PCGS PR65.
2617 1913 Type I. Very Choice Matte Proof VERY CH MTE PF $700.00
1913 Type I. Very Choice Matte Proof. A breath of light red-gold provides subtle color to this softly...
A breath of light red-gold provides subtle color to this softly gleaming example, which boasts especially bold inner rims and a reverse strike with altogether unusually full detail.
2618 1913 Type II. Gem Matte Proof GEM MTE PF $1,700.00
1913 Type II. Gem Matte Proof. Glass-reflective fields and precisely detailed reliefs are laved in...
Glass-reflective fields and precisely detailed reliefs are laved in intense red-gold for overwhelming beauty. One of 1,514 Type II Proofs struck, PCGS has grade far fewer Type II Proofs than Type I, certifying only 85 Type II coins in this desirable Gem grade. PCGS PR65.
2619 1913 Type II. Matte Proof MTE PF $600.00

- or a trifle better. Deeply gleaming red-gold is more forceful on the obverse, a silvery buffalo stands boldly forth from a colorfully toned field. ANACS Cache PF61.

1914 Gem Matte Proof, on the cusp of fully Superb. Rich orange-gold and rose give added vitality to...
- on the cusp of fully Superb. Rich orange-gold and rose give added vitality to a microscopically exacting strike. Distinctly shimmery surfaces add another dimension to this coin's visual appeal. Of a total of just 1275 Proofs struck of this date, NGC has certified only 71 at this rarefied condition level. NGC PF66.
2621 1914 Gem Matte Proof GEM MTE PF $1,400.00
1914 Gem Matte Proof. Lightest russet-gold joins a touch of pale violet on deeply reflective fields...
Lightest russet-gold joins a touch of pale violet on deeply reflective fields and devices of fascinating quality and almost startling beauty. One of 1,275 Proofs struck and a splendid choice for any high quality Type of date collection. NGC PF65.
2622 1915 Gem Matte Proof GEM MTE PF $1,300.00
1915 Gem Matte Proof. Boldly reflective, flawless fields and devices radiate an understated pink-gold...
Boldly reflective, flawless fields and devices radiate an understated pink-gold of the greatest delicacy. Collector response to the new Matte style was initially unenthusiastic and by 1915 the Proof mintage shrank to only 1,050, of which the present coin is one of the finest survivors. NGC PF65.
2623 1916 Gem Matte Proof GEM MTE PF $3,000.00
1916 Gem Matte Proof, nearly in the Superb category. A jewel-fine strike is highlighted by delicate...
- nearly in the Superb category. A jewel-fine strike is highlighted by delicate gold that transmuted to flaming orange in two areas near the sharp rims. This Proof issue of 600 was to be the last until the return of publicly sold Proofs 20 years later. Here is an exceptionally high quality example that will repay the closest examination. PCGS PR66.
2624 1916 Very Choice Matte Proof VERY CH MTE PF $1,900.00
1916 Very Choice Matte Proof. Essentially Gem, this coin displays blazing tawny red-gold over its...
Essentially Gem, this coin displays blazing tawny red-gold over its satin-smooth surfaces, including mirror-like fields and intricately detailed devices that testify to its jewel sharp strike. NGC PF64.

1917'D' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Frosty mint bloom engulfs the surfaces of this attractive...

2626 1918/7'D' Brilliant Uncirculated BU $28,000.00
1918/7'D' Brilliant Uncirculated, and nearly Choice. This pale steel-gray example boasts a satisfying...
- and nearly Choice. This pale steel-gray example boasts a satisfying wealth of appealing lustre. This specimen would certainly receive a higher grade if its strike were just a trifle sharper. This is a coin offering maximum visual quality for an historic overdate that is quite scarce in all grades, and outstandingly so in full Mint State. PCGS MS62.
2627 1918/17'D' G $350.00

Good. Some surface granularity and an unnatural sheen due to a previous cleaning. The date is barely visible with the top of the 7 seen with strong magnification. Scarce.

1920'S' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Here is a bright coin with a touch of pale golden color...
Here is a bright coin with a touch of pale golden color for a pleasing look. There are no marks or other impediments that are worthy of mention. Silky mint bloom dances over the surfaces for a charming appeal. A lovely example of an issue that is scarcely found in such high grades.
2629 1924'D' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated VERY CH BU $1,000.00
1924'D' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Pale golden toning and pleasing original mint frost give...

2631 1929'D' Very Choice Brilliant Uncirculated VERY CH BU $300.00

Wonderful lustre and the most delightful golden toning highlight this coin's bold quality. The strike shows a whisper of weakness but the overall beauty of this coin more than makes up for that small deficiency. This is a pleasing Denver coin sure to make its new owner proud.
2632 1936 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,300.00
1936 Gem Brilliant Proof, on the cusp of fully Superb. This example of the Type 1 or Satin Proof coinage...
- on the cusp of fully Superb. This example of the Type 1 or Satin Proof coinage is distinguished by softly glowing rose-gold covering the flawless reflective surfaces. Here is a thoroughly pleasing example of the first date of resumed Proof coinage, the most sought-after of this short series that ended in 1942. NGC Type 1 PF66.
2633 1937 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,600.00
1937 Gem Brilliant Proof, essentially fully Superb. It would be impossible to exaggerate the nearly...
- essentially fully Superb. It would be impossible to exaggerate the nearly blinding brilliance of this conservatively graded super-Gem. Total silver glow places this coin in a category of quality that must be seen to be adequately appreciated. PCGS PR66.
2634 1937 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $1,800.00
1937 Gem Brilliant Proof. Magnificent deep-glass fields perfectly complement meticulous semi-brilliant...

1937'D' Three-Legged. Choice About Uncirculated, on the cusp of full Mint State. Silvery satin surfaces...
Choice About Uncirculated, on the cusp of full Mint State. Silvery satin surfaces are relieved by a flavor of the finest lavender. Any wear which may be present is virtually imperceptible on this sharp example of a famous Depression-era Denver variety. NGC AU58.
2636 1937'D' Three-Legged CH AU $1,700.00
1937'D' Three-Legged. Choice About Uncirculated and virtually of Mint State quality. Pale gray with...
Choice About Uncirculated and virtually of Mint State quality. Pale gray with some light golden toning. The strike is moderate over surfaces that still retain a good bit of lustre. A popular and scarce mint error.
