Item - 10972
H.01 1807 PCGS MS63BN
$ 11500.00
We can not stress enough how rare this coin is and how much quality oriented it is. Its the second nicest 1807 we have EVER seen!

Superior surfaces have no pitting, cuts, or problems visible. In fact, there are no spots either. A little gloss can be seen as well as a surprisingly strong luster. We do believe the surfaces are totally ORIGINAL. Both sides are a pretty light chocolate brown color. Miss Liberty and the details are extremely sharp in strike. Even the EAC guys would agree this coin is a real MS piece! The eye appeal is really terrific!

PCGS 4, NGC 2, CAC 2. NONE have ever sold in auction. A PCGS MS62BN CAC sold for $8,913.00 in the Missouri Cabinet while a MS64+ BN CAC brought $71,874.00. We promise, your not going to find many choice 1807 H.01 ever offered for sale!

$ 45000.00
This coin in our opinion is VERY HIGH END! We also think its one of the neatest PR Half Cents from the Missouri Cabinet Sale.

Surprisingly shimmering and deep, crystal clear, clean, and highly reflective mirrors beam from all over. We looked hard for any real imperfections-and found NONE! This is NOT your typical shallow barely mirrors Half Cent Proof. The colors are totally ORIGINAL and include chocolate brown/faded blue/gold that swirl all over. Miss Liberty and the details are needle sharp in strike and have light frost. The eye appeal is spectacular! here is a partial description from Goldberg: "Light brown with iridescent rose and blue steel overtones plus faded mint red in protected areas of the reverse. The fields are nicely reflective with moderately deep mirrors on both sides. Kept from gem status by a tiny spot of planchet impurity struck into the field left of star 11 and a microscopic chip on the coronet over the I in LIBERTY. As a point of interest, the 8 in the date on all the Small Date Proofs is weaker than the other three digits. The weakness appears to have been caused by a clog in the die that went uncorrected during its use on both the Originals and First Restrikes." Interesting how the copper weenie describe coins!

ONLY 12 coins were ever minted. That's as rare as ANY major classic rarity! PCGS 2, NGC 1, CAC 2. The other PCGS CAC piece was also in the auction and it brought $48,300.00. Until now, NO 1849's have sold at auction (while you have had 5 1913 5C, a few 1804 $1, and several 1838O halves sell in the past 3 years)! We KNOW this coin is grossly UNDERvalued. You can't put a price on coins that simply never trade. We think ANY PR 65 or better ORIGINAL should be $100,000.00 The other PR65BN is now impounded in major collection. Opportunity knocks loud here!

These two coins are extreme rarities on their own. We thought it would be wicked neat to offer them as a mini Proof Set. In our 40 years careers we have never seen anything like this offered!

H.01 1848 ORIGINAL PCGS PR65RB EX MISSOURI CABINET. This coin is worthy of CLASSIC RARITY stardom! This is not a commoner seldom see restrike.

The mirrors are more typical for the date. You can see light reflectivity. Splashes of totally original pale brown mix with light shades of Mint Red. A few tiny toning dots can be detected on the obverse. Miss Liberty and the details are needle sharp in strike. The eye appeal is very nice!

Only 15 pieces were ever minted. The lone coin higher (a 65+) also sold in the Missouri Cabinet sale for $94,875.00 and resides in major collection. Even in PR64RB NONE have been sold since 2003! We cannot stress enough the extreme rarity of this GEM coin!

1C 1848 PCGS PR66BN N-19. At one time this coin was also owned by the Missouri Cabinet Collector at one time. The quality of this piece is mind boggling!

Crisp, crystal clear, super clean, and reflective mirrors beam from all over. Beautiful and totally original and vibrant colors of even chocolate/pale violet/pale blue swirl all over. Miss Liberty and the details are needle sharp in strike. The eye appeal is fabulous! According to our records, a mere 7 pieces were minted. That definitely qualifies as Classic Rarity status to us! Of course this piece is the FINEST graded.

Legend Numismatics is honored to have been able to acquire and offer these two amazing ultra rarities. They will be a treasure and well worthy addition to any collection or even portfolio (hate to use that word-but these two coins are great for "put away". Once these two great coins are sold, good look ever finding anything remotely similar. We think they are an absolute bargin today. Think about this, how often can you buy TWO coins for UNDER $150,000.00 where the MINTAGE is 22 combined! If these were gold, we 'd easily be talking $250-350,000.00 per coin in these grades!

H.01C- $1.00 1856 PCGS PR65-66
$ 550000.00
Legend Numismatics is pleased to own and offer one of the most exciting numismatic treasures that exists-a complete SUPERB GEM matched original 1856 Proof Set that ranks as the FINEST in existence! Every coin is graded by PCGS and has been CAC approved.

This set has been intact since the day each coin was handpicked at the Mint-in 1856. The set has remained with the sale family until 2000 or so when a major dealer bought the families entire PR Set holdings 1856-1867. Legend was fortunate enough to have acquired the bulk of the sets and placed them immediately into great homes. This set was sold to a collector/investor who held on to it for 3 years. When we were re-offered the set, we immediately turned to Bob Simpson who bought it and 3 others (1857-1859). Now that Mr Simpson is overloaded with coins and is cleaning house, we sold this set along with the others (1857-1859) in our July 2014 Regency sale. This set brought $499,375.00. It is important to note, this set was in all NGC holders-with the Dollar grading PR67 and the Dime grading PR68 (we have the inserts). Of all the sets in that deal, this has always been our favorite.

We actually had $500,000.00 hammer to bid on it. You can not find ANY accurate values for this set. These are coins that have no equals! We can easily see this set selling for $1 million dollars in a strong market. If you seek something completely different-and NOT esoteric-here it is. Its highly unlikely that ANY other GEM PR 1856 sets exist-let alone one in such an incredible state of preservation!

Legend loves matched original proof sets. We would never allow a set like this to be broken up. Its just too great a treasure. H.01 PCGS PR66RB. CAC. (NGC PR66RB). Amazing everything! Strong mirrors have totally original colors. Every detail is needle sharp and really stands out. The eye appeal is phenomenal!

1C PCGS PR66RB SLANTED 6 CAC. (NGC PR66*RB) WOW! Why is this monster not a PR67? Killer mirrors are more red then brown.

1C FE PCGS PR64+ CAC. (NGC PR65). The ONLY reason we can see as to why this is a 64+-pure spite by PCGS. This coin is perfect!

3CS PCGS PR66 CAC. (NGC PR67 CAMEO). Pristine mirrors do contrast with sharply struck features. the mirrors are super bold! We grade this coin 66+ CA.

H.10 PCGS PR66 CAMEO GOLD CAC (NGC PR67 CAMEO). Deeply mirrored. a just a few die lines probably spooked PCGS. We grade the coin PR67 Cameo.

10C PCGS PR66 CAMEO SM DT CAC. (NGC PR68 CAMEO). Only w/a strong glass can you see some die polishing lines. Awesome mirrors. We grade the coin PR67 CA.

25C PCGS PR67 CAMEO CAC. (NGC PR68 CAMEO). PCGS was clearly spiteful here too! An amazing SUPERB GEM w/deep mirrors! We grade this coin PR67+ Cameo at the very least! 50C PCGS PR66 CAMEO CAC. (NGC PR67 CAMEO). Incredible mirrors are nearly blinding! We fully grade this coin PR67 Cameo.

$1 PCGS PR66+ CAMEO GOLD CAC (NGC PR67 CAMEO). We fought hard w/PCGS about calling it a PR67 Cameo. They had to stick to their guns. they are absolutely wrong here-even CAC backs that up. This is one of the most amazing No Motto PR Dollars that exists-and thats not including the fact it is an 1856!

It can not be stressed enough the HIGH END qualities each coin has, the matched totally ORIGINAL colors, and how deep and incredibly flashy EVERY coins mirrors are! Rarely does anyone see sets in the 1900's anymore with this kind of quality or eye appeal.

Valuation was not a problem for this set even though no accurate numbers exist. Keep in mind, even in PCGS holders, each coin is pretty much still the finest known. A coin like the dollar we easily value at $150,000.00. Plus, its a PR66+ which even CAC agrees with was harsh (it had been an NGC PR67). Non Cameo PR65's trade for $60,000.00 (we've seen one that is dark and ugly). Here you have a coin that should a PR67 with gorgeous moderate original toning and killer mirrors. Plus, we did figure 5% for the total set value. This set definitely has serious upside potential. Opportunity knocks loud here! Call or email us to discuss how we can help you own this once in a life time set.

Back in July 2014, this set did sell in our auction. At the time it was all NGC and sold for $499,000.00 to Legend (a real sale, no games) Our hope is to find the perfect home that will cherish this amazing set as much as we have through the years its been in our zone.

Every time we look at this coin we shake our heads in wonder how it could have survived 222 years in such a tremendous state of preservation. To us, this is the epitome of numismatics!

Sensational smooth and ultra clean surfaces are everywhere. Even if you use a strong glass you won't find any problems. This coin is also struck on a pretty much problem free planchet. Both sides have an even light luster (typical). We do not believe this coin has ever been oiled or brushed. The color is a super original even chocolate. There are NO spots or stains. Miss Liberty and the details are all exceptionally struck. The eye appeal is phenomenal!

PCGS 2, NGC 1, CAC 2. There are NONE graded higher at PCGS or NGC! This coin last sold in auction for $270,250.00 08/2014. The current Collectors Universe Value is $325,000.00. The quality and rarity are undeniable!
