Popular Carson City Trade Dollar Among Highlights at David Lawrence Rare Coins Auction

DLRC Auction Highlights by David Lawrence Rare Coin Auctions  ……

Our Sunday Internet Auction #1083 offers a pair of scarce mid-19th century Proof Quarter eagles, a second-finest Barber quarter, a scarce Carson City Trade dollar, and a frosty and original 1799 $10 gold piece. 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 100 No Reserve Lots and 25 Vault Value Items. All lots will begin closing at 8 pm EST on Sunday, September 22.

Our first highlight coin is a 1905 25c PCGS MS67. An underrated P-Mint, this piece has two others graded as such with only a PCGS MS68 graded finer. Beautiful satiny surfaces with light rose tints, this coin is certainly one of the finest examples of the date that we have seen.

Our second highlight is an 1874-CC Trade$ NGC MS64. A popular and affordable Carson City Trade dollar, this piece offers nice, mostly white fields with hints some peripheral russet toning most noticeable on the reverse.

The third highlight is an 1860 $2 1/2 PCGS/CAC Proof 65 CAM with beautiful yellow-gold surfaces and brilliant cameo mirrors. Despite a healthy mintage of 112 pieces, the 1860 is really quite rare. An estimated 20-25 exist in all grades, of which only a handful are graded finer by PCGS. A razor-sharp example with stunning fields, only three pieces are graded as such by PCGS, with a single Proof 66 Cameo and a single Proof 66 Deep Cameo graded finer.
