Half Dollars:Early
Item - 11247
$ 275000.00
This is nothing less then an AMAZING coin! Legend has long been SERIOUS fans of all 1795 Halves. Having placed two 1795 MS64 and 2 MS62's in our career, we follow the movement of these. Few collectors realize how rare these are in AU and above. We have been a huge fan of this coin from the day we saw it. We missed it at the sale due to being on the phone for the 1795 MS65 (2 lots before) and then the 1795 Small Head MS62 (lot after). When we saw it for sale in the after market-we bought it at what was still NOT our max bid! We've been looking for 25+ years for great 1795 50C and have only found three coins prior, we assure you, this piece is one of the very best you will EVER see!

You can certainly tell the Mint was no automated back in 1795. This coin has lots of die cracks and Mint made issues-including die clashing. Overall, the surfaces are smooth and clean. There really is no evidence of handling. A surprising strong luster is genuine and is unbroken. The luster also enhances the beautiful golden brown/rose/violet/pale purple original colors that blanket both sides. Every detail is remarkably struck and stands out clearly. Most important, there are few adjustment marks-and the ones there are -you need a strong glass to see! That is highly unusual. The eye appeal is incredible!

PCGS 4, NGC 5, CAC 3. This is the Pogue coin (lot 1098) that sold for $199,750.00. It was in the Foxfire and Dr Judd collections prior. We will state this again,w e did NOT buy it at the sale. The amount we paid was within one increment of our max. The last one of these we sold was to Simpson back in 2009. We PAID $285,000.00 for that coin. The coin we are offering really has not been on the market since 1993. Even then it was a quick private transaction. If you seek an extra ordinary 1795 Half, then this is your coin. We assure you, your not going to have another opportunity at an MS63 or higher for many years to come!

Half Dollars:Bust
Item - 11290
50C 1814 PCGS MS63
$ 4850.00
We bought this coin raw and resubmitted 2X seeking an MS64. We used to know how to grade these. Can't promise it ever will MS64, but its one heck of a 63!

The surfaces are a thick satiny texture and are smooth. There are numerous die lines, clashing lines, and other clear Mint made things you find only on these Bust Halves. A surprisingly strong luster shows off a light and even deep champagne/pewter mix of original colors. There is a thin Mint grease stain on the reverse. Miss Liberty and the details are frosty and have really crisp sharp strikes. The eye appeal is VERY nice!

PCGS 29, NGC 31, CAC 4 (as you can see, CAC is VERY tough on these). No MS63 PCGS piece has sold in auction since 2004! An NGC NO CAC sold for $4,406.00 03/2015. This is a very nice and high end Bust Half that will fit in any collection!


Half Dollars:Reeded Edge
Item - 10900
50C 1836 RE PCGS MS62
$ 18000.00
This superb piece is SUPER HIGH END. While we can not guarantee it will ever grade MS63, we actually think it might be worth more raw! We did resubmit it seeking an MS63. PCGS may have had a bad day when it was resubmitted.

We love everything about this coin. The surfaces are clean overall and look satiny smooth. Even with a strong glass, all you can find a very MINOR widely scattered lines and a tick or two. A surprisingly strong luster beams well from all over. Both sides are a deeper and totally original pewter color. Miss Liberty and the details are exceptionally struck. The eye appeal is great!

Only 1200 were ever minted. PCGS 12, NGC 11, CAC 4. The last auction record we have for one of these selling is from 11/2011 Heritage-that coin brought $12,650.00. Fast forward, we never ever see these offered in ANY grade of MS. So its really hard to figure a correct value-we do are certain this coin is worth more today then it was in 2011. in MS63 PCGS has graded only 4 coins. Opportunity knocks so loud here!

Half Dollars:Seated
Item - 11054
$ 11000.00
We did not buy this out of the sale. We did like it so much we had to buy it!

Exciting surfaces are smooth and clean overall. The toning does not hide much-maybe one small thin line. A moderate luster shows of wicked neat original shades of golden brown/pearl green/reddish gold/champagne colors that are splashed all over. Miss Liberty and the details are exceptionally struck. The eye appeal is like the quality-awesome!

PCGS 24, NGC 13, CAC 8. In the Newman Sale, this coin brought $11,750.00. To date, PCGS has graded only one coin higher. You can't beat this coins quality, eye appeal , and killer pedigree!

Half Dollars:Seated
Item - 10960
50C 1876 PCGS PR66 CAMEO
$ 9750.00
Multiple WOW factors here! This coin is VERY high end too.

Glittering mirrors are super deep. They are also crystal clear, super clean, and have bold reflectivity. The mirrors also have that "watery" look when you twirl them. Both sides are evenly covered by a moderate layer of original lavender/lilac/pale gold colors. They are NOT dull or drab. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and have bold frost. The eye appeal is great!

PCGS 5, NGC 5, CAC 8 (we believe this coin is 2x). The last 1876 PCGS PR66CA CAC piece to sell in auction brought $9,400.00 back in 01/2013 Heritage. Two years is along time! The current Collectors Universe Value is $11,000.00.

Half Dollars:Seated
Item - 11298
50C 1882 PCGS PR67 CAMEO
$ 13750.00
When we first saw this coin it was love pure love. We still have trouble putting it away!

Stunning mirrors are super clean, crystal clear, deep, and boldly reflective. The mirrors appear like a freshly made sheet of ice being hit by the morning sun. A mellow and totally ORIGINAL mix of pale golden brow/blue splashes on part of the right obverse and a little of the reverse rims. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and have thick white frost. The eye appeal is stunning!

PCGS 4, NGC 5, CAC 4 (we do know this coin is 2x). A lesser example sold in auction for $11,750.00 04/2015. Yes, this coin IS worth the difference. If you are building a PR Seated set or Type set, this coin is a "must see"!


Half Dollars:Barber
Item - 10817
50C 1896 PCGS PR66 CAMEO
$ 6350.00
WOW does this coin look awesome. We wish all PR Barbers could look like this!

Outrageous ultra deep mirrors seem endless. They have remarkable clarity, cleanliness, and of course intense reflectivity. With a strong glass you can see the die polishing lines which are Mint made (this date is famous for them). When you twirl them they have the dramatic rolling "liquid mercury" look. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and have strong silvery white frost. The eye appeal is intense you can see this coin from yards away!

ONLY 762 were minted. PCGS 11, NGC 12, CAC 7. There are no DCameos graded for the date. We can't believe the fact that NO PCGS CAC piece has ever sold at auction. We will say this, if this piece is in an auction its the type of coin that is so dramatic it will create a bidding war! if you collect GEM ultra cameoed coins, then this is a "must see" at the very least.

Half Dollars:Barber
Item - 11260
$ 35000.00
We have handled a few PR 69 Barbers in out time. While this coin is close, we do think its every bit as MONSTER quality as any PR69!

You know this coin was lovingly stored since the day it left the bank. The mirrors are as ultra deep as you will ever see. They are also crystal clear, ultra clean, and have intense reflectivity. The mirrors actually look like rolling liquid mercury when twirled. A stunning band of reddish gold frames most of the rims. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and have pinpoint sharp strikes. The eye appeal is jaw dropping!

PCGS 5, NGC 14, CAC 2. This coin brought $27,000.00 in 08/2013 Newman sale. There has been nothing remotely similar to this coin offered since! We assure you, this coin will blow away anything else-even if it's a different date!

Half Dollars:Barber
Item - 11201
50C 1900 PCGS PR66+ CAMEO
$ 5750.00
This is a near miss PR67!

Deep and glittering mirrors are super clean, clear, and are boldly reflective. We think only a small planchect flakes on the neck is what keeps this piece from grading full PR67. The surfaces are evenly covered by a totally original swirling mix of olive/forest green/gold/reddish gold/blue/purple/magenta colors. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and have sharp strikes. The eye appeal is like the quality-outstanding!

Only 912 were minted. PCGS 15, NGC 23, CAC 16. PCGS Has graded 7 pieces PR66+ CA (we believe this piece accounts for HALF -yes HALF the pops)! The last one to sell in auction brought $5,141.00 09/2013 Heritage. That coin has no where near the colors this piece so vividly displays!


Half Dollars:Walking Liberty
Item - 10986
50C 1916D PCGS MS66
$ 6000.00
We have not seen or handled anything remotely similar in years. This is one funky neat SUPERB GEM!

Overall, the coin is totally MS66 calibre. The surfaces are pretty clean. Only with a glass can you see some lines and light scuff HIDDEN in the dreaded right field. A surprisingly strong luster shows off the peripheral colors of purple/navy/golden brown all over. Miss Liberty and the details are well struck (this date does not come stuck up like 1943P's). The eye appeal is terrific!

PCGS 63, NGC 37, CAC 13. The last PCGS CAC piece to sell in auction brought $5,405.00 01/2015 in a depressed auction. We paid more for this coin! We rarely see these offered. Opportunity knocks here for sure!
