First up is a 1928 5c PCGS MS67 ex: Fivaz Collection. Only a single example is graded finer by both services combined. This beautiful, registry-quality gem displays stunning golden tinted surfaces with frosty, eye-appealing luster.

This highlight is an 1883 50c PCGS MS66+ ex: D.L. Hansen. A gorgeous example of a key issue, this coin comes from a tiny mintage of just 8,000 pieces struck. Strong, satiny luster radiates from both sides of this high-end gem, and its eye appeal is enhanced by lovely tints of purple, deep gold, and blue along the peripherals. It has been graded PCGS+ for premium quality at the top end of the assigned grade.

Our next highlight is a 1909 $5 PCGS/CAC Proof 66 ex: D.L. Hansen. This gorgeous gem Proof flaunts lovely honey-gold surfaces that are bright and satiny in texture on the obverse, while the reverse displays a soft sandblasted texture. All design elements show sharp definition and the eye appeal is spectacular, as confirmed by the coveted CAC sticker which signifies premium quality for the grade. The number-one Hansen Collection set holds a PR66+ example for the date.
