A few very interesting items from my personal collection.
* Since 1982 the United States Mint has issued thirty modern commemorative
$5.00 gold coins. I offer the complete set of thirty coins, with each
graded and encapsulated by NGC in MS-70. The "Mint State" graded coins
are far more rare than the "Proof" graded coins in this series. Many of
these coins have been melted over the past three+ decades. Thus, it would
be extremely difficult and time-consuming to duplicate the set. Please
contact me to discuss this fabulous set. Price on Request.
* 1888 O Morgan dollar, NGC MS-65. This gorgeous coin boasts steel-gray
surfaces with deeper charcoal highlights in the protected areas. The
strike is strong and there are no rubs or marks on the coin. A grade of
MS-66 would not be out of line for this beautiful specimen. $23,500.
* 1951 Franklin half dollar, PCGS MS-66 FBL. Coin shows superb
eye-appeal with blast-white surfaces. It is perfectly struck with clear
definition of the curl of Ben's hair on the obv to the unbroken, solid
bell lines on the rev. It is nearly impossible to find an early date
Franklin with such a hard strike and in such pristine condition. One of
29 so graded by PCGS with only 6 graded higher. $4,250.
* 1953 S Franklin half dollar, NGC MS-66+ CAC. Coin has spectacular
luster that shimmers when tipped in the light. The bell lines are 98%
complete. The surfaces are virtually flawless with minimal bag marks
that are barely visible. NGC has only graded 19 examples in this lofty
grade and the addition of the CAC sticker adds to the panache.
