By David Lawrence Rare Coins ……

Our Sunday Internet Auction #1056 includes a selection of 515 New Items along with 100 No Reserve Lots and 25 Vault Value Items. All lots begin closing at 8pm EST on Sunday, March 17.

Our first highlight coin is a 1909-S VDB 1c PCGS MS67 RD. Tied with 14 other examples as the finest graded by PCGS, the 1909-S VDB is a legendary key date rarity known amongst both collectors and non-numismatists. Examples of similar grade rarely come to market, with the most recent pieces before this item realized between $61,000 and $94,000 USD. An attractive superb gem with light, original hues and plenty of red and gold tints, this piece is truly top-shelf.

Our second highlight coin is an 1870 25c PCGS/CAC Proof 67 DCAM. It has beautiful blast white fields with amazing eye appeal. From a low mintage of just 1,000 coins, our example is CAC-approved for quality.

The third highlight coin is a 1952-D 50c PCGS/CAC MS67 FBL. Beautiful rainbow tones throughout, this piece is one of the prettiest toned Franklins that we have ever handled and is truly deserving of the CAC sticker.

Our fourth highlight coin is an 1874 G$1 PCGS MS68. This issue is a type coin in all grades, except for this elevated tier. One of two graded as such, this piece is as nice as it comes with beautiful luster, gorgeous golden yellow tints, and fantastic overall eye appeal.

The fifth highlight is an 1803/2 $5 PCGS/CAC AU58+. Gorgeous, lustrous surfaces with fantastic overall originality. The faintest touch of cabinet friction is notable, but the overall appeal of this coin is absolutely stunning. Our example has CAC approval and the PCGS+ grade showing premium quality.
