John Dirnbauer Rare Coins and Collectibles



Updated on Saturday, October 1, 2016.

A few very interesting items from my personal collection.

*Since 1982 the United States Mint has issued 32 modern commemorative
$5.00 gold coins and three modern commemorative $10.00 gold coins.  One of
the $10.00 coins is struck on a planchet of gold with an outer ring of
platinum.  This is the only bimetallic U.S. coin ever struck.  I offer the
complete set of 35 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 found their way to
the melting pot over the past 34 years.  Thus it would be extremely
difficult and time consuming to duplicate this set.  Please contact me at
the above-listed email address or by telephone to discuss this fabulous
set.  Price on Request.

* 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

* 1953 S Franklin half dollar, NGC MS-66+ CAC.  Coin has spectacular
luster that shimmers through many colors of the spectrum 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. $1395.
