Lustrous 19th Century US Gold Coins Highlight Latest David Lawrence Auction

DLRC Auction Highlights by David Lawrence Rare Coin Auctions  ……

Our Sunday Internet Auction #1086 offers a nice assortment of different gold coins, including a piece from the SS Republic shipwreck, and a Registry-quality 1907-D $10 gold eagle, which is tied with one other piece as the finest known. Don’t miss those and other exciting PCGS-, NGC-, and CAC-certified pieces.

In all, there’s a vast selection of 400 New Items, featuring 120 No Reserve Lots and 25 Vault Value Items. All lots will begin closing at 8 pm EST on Sunday, October 13.

Our fist highlight coin is an 1802 $2 1/2 NGC/CAC AU55. From a tiny mintage of 3,035 the 1802 quarter eagle is a wonderful representative of this rare Capped Bust type design. Frosty, lustrous surfaces with a lack of significantly detracting adjustment marks, this fresh example is certainly high end for the grade. CAC-approved for quality. A wonderful addition to any type set. After a brief hiatus (since 1798) from the minting of gold quarter eagles, the US Mint produced approximately 3,035 pieces in 1802.

Our second highlight coin is an 1836 $5 PCGS MS65 (OGH). The popular Classic Head type coin is well represented here with this absolutely beautiful specimen, boasting nice warm gold patination and resplendent luster. One of two examples graded this high by PCGS, with no other examples graded finer.

Our third highlight is a 1907-D $10 PCGS MS65. Tied with a single other coin at PCGS as the finest graded. The surfaces are silky smooth with fantastic luster and gorgeous eye appeal. Final year of Liberty design.

Our final highlight coin is an SS Republic Shipwreck: 1865 $20 NGC/CAC MS61 (Date in Rim). An interesting Civil War date variety with a misplaced date. Recovered from the Republic shipwreck, this piece is rare due to the misplaced date as well as for being salvaged from the famous ship. CAC-approved for quality.
