The first highlight coin from our weekly auction is a 1916 Standing Liberty 25c PCGS MS64 FH. This piece is a famous and popular key date SLQ with pretty satiny surfaces with a light golden-grayish tint. Our example is 90% white with plenty of luster and eye appeal. The 1916 is highly sought by all collectors of key date coinage as a low-mintage, first-year issue, and full head examples are especially tough.
This week’s second highlight is an 1836 Gobrecht $1 PCGS/CAC Proof 58 (Name on Base, Original, Coin Alignment). This is a scarce, high-end example of this popular issue from the U.S. Mint. Described by some as a pattern, these coins are popular amongst collectors of all types. Our example is CAC-approved for quality.
The final highlight is an 1842-50 A.Bechtler G$1 NGC MS60 (27 G, 21C, Reeded Edge, K-25). This example is the finest graded by both services! The first gold dollar struck in America, these were issued by C. Bechtler in 1831 and A. Bechtler in 1842. These first issues were sanctioned by the federal government and were our first gold dollars issued in America from gold discovered in North Carolina and Georgia. The Reeded Edge is particularly noteworthy due to its rarity and being the first Reeded Edge dollar of A. Bechtler. This piece was originally deemed an R 8 by Kagin. There are examples that were proven to be misattributed by both services and until disproven, this is the sole survivor of a mint-state example.
