Selected Highlights of the May Super Sale
The 1949-S Franklin is a popular, key date in the series and this beauty is tied for finest known. Radiant luster shines through the patina of pale gold with stunning bands of rich multicolor toning along the right rim of the obverse and spanning the reverse peripherals. The strike is razor-sharp and the eye appeal is stupendous.
Bold luster shines through the patina’s gorgeous blue, orange-gold, and violet toning. Sharply struck and virtually flawless this will make a prized addition to any high-end collection.
One of the most important trademarks of this rare variety is the heavy die crack that spans the lower left obverse from the tops of the 179 to the left rim just below the first star. Well-defined surfaces are free of any individually distracting marks of this piece’s brief time in circulation. gunmetal-blue, gold and green iridescence spanning the obverse and reverse. Lovely gun-metal surfaces give way to subtle gold, green, and pale pink iridescence when examined under a light source.
The 1796 quarter eagle is one of the most famous of all US coin designs. As a first-year, experimental design the missing stars proved problematic because the coins wore too quickly in circulation. Hence, only 963 of these little jewels were struck and very few remain today in a condition that PCGS or NGC can merit grading. This handsome AU retains much of its original mint luster and features dominant yellow-gold color with original tints lilac and copper around the devices. The details are quite solid for the grade with light adjustment marks noted on the reverse.
From a tiny mintage of only 4,540 coins, this early quarter eagle is rare and desirable in any grade, but especially so select Mint State. Bright lemon-gold color adorns both sides of this frosty example. Distraction-free surfaces display a distinct trace of reflectivity in the fields helping to highlight the well-struck design elements. A beautiful, eye-appealing example sure to please even the most discerning collector. The primary set holds a MS63 example for the date.
Historically, this coin is deemed to be the finest Charlotte quarter eagle in existence today. Of just 6,729 coins, this piece is the finest graded and bests the second-finest for the date by three whole grades! Predominantly caramel-gold in color this original gem showcases an impressively sharp strike for the issue. Distraction-free surfaces display touches of glowing orange reflectivity in the central fields framing the central devices on both sides.
The 1854-D is the only Dahlonega issue in the $3 gold series. From a scant mintage of 1,120 coins, very few survive in high grade. This lovely AU displays warm medium gold tones surfaces that are well balanced with even wear and delightfully free of any individually significant abrasions. Glowing luster remains highlighting the design elements and creating lovely eye appeal. An exciting opportunity for the advanced collector of Southern gold.
