2875 1850 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated CH BU $9,500.00
1850 Choice Brilliant Uncirculated. Toned with dark lilac and blue over the entire surface and attractive...
Toned with dark lilac and blue over the entire surface and attractive for this coveted rare date. The mintage for the year abruptly ended after a mere 7,500 were coined. Of these, many were melted during the economic disruptions caused by the California Gold Rush, which drove up the price of silver relative to the falling price of gold. There are moderate handling marks which seem to...  more
2876 1857 Brilliant Uncirculated BU $1,250.00
1857 Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to Choice. Flashy, fully prooflike fields draw the eye to...
- with claims to Choice. Flashy, fully prooflike fields draw the eye to this coin, whose pearl-gray and silver surfaces are ever so gently toned in pale olive and champagne-gold hues. The central strike is quite bold for the issue, while Ms. Liberty's head and eagle's talons exhibit the flatness expected of this date. Surfaces are mostly free of disfiguring marks, although a few carbon...  more
2877 1866 With Motto. Very Choice Brilliant Proof VERY CH BR PF $4,600.00
1866 With Motto. Very Choice Brilliant Proof and only a whisper away from a full gem distinction....
- and only a whisper away from a full gem distinction. In fact, the coloration, vibrance, and visual presentation are far nicer than many technically Gem specimens. Glowing liquid-mirror fields and cameo design elements adorn both the obverse and reverse. There is a veil of light russet-golden toning that is embellished by iridescent electric-blue and mauve peripheral highlights. Close examination...  more
2878 1867 Blundered Date. Br.5478 CH AU $800.00
1867 Blundered Date. Br.5478. Choice About Uncirculated and bordering on full Mint State. On this...
Choice About Uncirculated and bordering on full Mint State. On this variety the date is punched over a smaller downward slanting date which Breen suggests is the Half Dollar logotype. It was at one time believed that this variety was only found on Proof coinage but several circulation strikes, such as the present example, have come to light in more recent times. This particular example...  more
2879 1870 Gem Brilliant Proof GEM BR PF $2,600.00
1870 Gem Brilliant Proof. A needle-sharp strike is seen in Liberty's fully detailed face and hands,...
A needle-sharp strike is seen in Liberty's fully detailed face and hands, the eagle's feathers and shield. Intermingled iridescent blue and rich rose toning contribute wonderful color to the flashing mirror fields and crisply defined reliefs. One of 1,000 Proofs struck, and certainly among the finest existing today. Locating a finer specimen might well prove impossible.
2880 1872'S' AU $2,100.00
1872'S' About Uncirculated or somewhat finer. Silver-white surfaces are remarkably smooth, showing...
About Uncirculated or somewhat finer. Silver-white surfaces are remarkably smooth, showing a few light hairlines under a glass and a couple of flecks of surface residue. One of 9,000 struck in this penultimate San Francisco date.
