A few very interesting items from my personal collection.
* 1797 Early Dollar, 9 Stars left and 7 Stars right, Small Letters, NGC EF-40. This coin boasts clean surfaces with highly desirable steel-gray toning with deeper charcoal highlights in the protected areas on both obverse and reverse. There are no marks, rubs or rim blemishes to distract from the notable eye-appeal. $25,500.
* 1842 Liberty Seated Dollar, PCGS PF-62 CAC. Amazing luster is the hallmark of this rare, beautiful and desirable coin. Both sides display soft golden/blue toning around the rims. Eye-appeal is special as indicated by the highly valued CAC sticker. $35,750
* 1907 Liberty Head Nickel, NGC PF-66. Both obverse and reverse offer lightly frosted cameo devices. Spot-free, haze-free, jet-black fields make the cameo pop off the surfaces. It is most difficult to find this coin in high grade. NGC has graded only 69 examples in PF-66. This coin offers incredible eye-appeal and quality at a modest price. $1,000.
* 1949 D Franklin Half Dollar, PCGS MS-65 FBL. This is a stunning coin offering superb color rarely found on this issue. The central portion of the obverse is beautiful as it swirls into a glorious peach, violet and turquoise blend. The color is truly remarkable. The strike is razor sharp with bold, undisturbed bell lines. This coin represents a rare opportunity for a half dollar specialist. $1,795.
