*SOLD* A Gem quality example exhibiting a needle sharp strike on both sides, even chocolate brown color and superb, virtually mark fee surfaces. A hard, almost prooflike striking. Scarcer than its larger cousin, the Hibernia Halfpenny.
*SOLD* Very well struck on a virtually perfect planchet, this Fugio is another hand-picked “top of the grade’ specimen. Tougher States United variety carries a $500 premium in the Red Book in Unc. All obverse design and lettering is crisp, with a small die crack causing a few letters in “Mind Your Business” to be missing, a very minor issue with any Fugio. Reverse is well struck with and problem free. Color is an even deep chocolate brown. Easily in the top 10% of the grade overall.
*NEW* Solid strike with strong detailing overall front and back. Top surface quality and even chocolate brown color. The Horned Eagle variety shows a die break at the top of the eagle’s head that resembles a horn.
*NEW* Very choice uncirculated Massachusetts Cent. This coin features a very strong, even strike with sharp design detailing throughout, separating this specimen from the great majority. Mark free surfaces, even chocolate color and good luster finish this great colonial type.
*SOLD - NEW* A super nice example of this scarce date. Solid, even strike with immaculate surfaces and nice chocolate brown color. Very strong for the grade. Pop is 3 – MS62, 4 – MS63 and 2 graded MS64, with none higher. There is one MS62 example shown recently sold in a Heritage auction that shows very weakly struck areas and large patches of black. Although housed in the same grade holder, this coin is a full point better.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Extraordinary condition rarity and a beautiful coin to boot. In the entire 39-year span of PCGS grading, only 2 specimens of the date have been awarded the MS65BN grade, with one grading MS66BN. In addition there are only 2 MS65RB, none higher and one MS65RD, none higher. The present specimen is a gorgeous coin showing considerable blue highlights and original violet red in and around all devices and lettering on both sides, giving this piece fabulous Eye-Appeal. Full sharp strike and full luster complete this great coin.
*NEW* PCGS Fully struck with immaculate surfaces and full luster. Even chocolate brown. I do not know why this coin is only MS64. Absolute top, top, top of the grade and fully deserving of a plus, if not MS65BN.
NEW* A beautiful, original Proof example showing considerable original Red in and around the devices and lettering on the obverse. Reverse shows lovely blue-green patina overall. Needle sharp strike and wonderful original surfaces finish this scarce proof issue.
Solid, even strike on both sides, showing no weakness in the design or lettering. Distraction free surfaces and even slightly deep chocolate brown with some remaining luster. Very nice and affordable type.
