*NEW* No L Variety. Needle sharp strike front and back. Basically contact mark free with glowing luster. At the absolute top of the grade, deserving of a “plus” designation IMO. Pop is 35 with only nine higher.
*Henry Hamilton Collection* Another top, top, top of the grade gold coin. I would grade this piece 64+ and consider it in the top 2-3% of the grade. Well struck, with absolute minimum contact marks, with original golden color and full luster.
*NEW* PCGS Wow!! This is a gorgeous gold piece. A fresh, original GEM that shows beautiful light orange-rose patina on simply superb “skin”. Needle sharp strike and glowing luster finish this stunner. Considerably scarcer than the most common 1901-S date, the 1903-S shows a pop of 23 in MS66 with only 6 grading higher, compared to 1901-S which shows a pop of 197 in MS66 with 20 examples grading higher. Despite this disparity, CU price guide shows only a $300 price premium for the 03-S.
*ON HOLD - Henry Hamilton Collection* As many of you may know, 1907 dated $10 Indians can be the most beautiful of the series and this is one of those coins. Virtually superb, with immaculate surfaces, deep original golden color and glowing luster, this is the finest of the date I have seen in MS64 grade. A connoisseur’s coin for sure.
Another date that can make for a beautiful $10 Indian, this specimen is fully struck with no distracting marks and complete, strong cartwheel luster over rich golden color. A beautiful example of one of the most exquisitely designed US coins, as most of you know, also the work of Augustus St. Gaudens.
*NEW* An attractive original uncirculated example of an early Type 3 $20 Liberty. Starting in 1877, the value “Twenty Dollars” is spelled in the reverse design. Scattered marks consistent with the grade, but nothing distracting. Fully lustrous.`
*SOLD - NEW* A fresh, original Gem example of this tougher date. Well struck and fully lustrous. It is interesting to note the pops in relation to the most common date, the 1904. In MS65 the 1903 shows 426 graded with 13 – MS64+ and only 3 in MS66. Contrasted to the 1904 in MS65 shows 4836 graded with 171 – MS64+ and 207 graded higher. Despite this considerable disparity in pops, CU Price Guide only gives the 1903 a $200 premium in MS65 grade.
