*NEW* A wonderful original and affordable Flowing Hair Half. This example sets itself apart from the pack by an exceptional strike which shows all details fully and clearly. The most common problem with this type is weak and mushy stars and lettering around the peripheral areas of both sides. Not a problem with this coin. Centers are equally well struck. Wear is even and the surfaces are problem free. Two tone antique silvery gray patina as desired.
*NEW* A perfect original circ that began life with a full, sharp strike and still shows details often missing in coins several grades higher. Weakness of strike is the main problem plaguing this type, but this specimen retains drapery folds and considerable hair detail. The reverse is even more impressive with a complete and even strike showing considerable feather detail and full shield lines. Color is an even medium gray and you will even notice remaining luster in and around the stars and lettering. As good as this type gets for the grade.
*NEW* Not a grade I often buy or even look for, but this piece is so pleasing and virgin original, that I had to add it to inventory, as my customers appreciate this type of coin. Strong even strike and finished with a lovely two-tone original silvery gray, giving this piece exceptional eye-appeal.
*SOLD - NEW* PCGS The most beautifully toned and most incredibly eye-appealing circulated Cap Bust Half I have ever seen. Fully struck with silvery rose centers going to bright blue and fully lustrous peripheries on both sides. Must be seen to be believed. Yes, you are reading the price correctly. I paid $1500 for this coin.
*NEW* A lovely original showing a good strike with full “E Pluribus Unum”. Light to medium silver patina going deeper in and around the devices and finished with full luster. Top quality and eye-appeal for the price.
*NEW* Wow, this is a great looking type coin. Full, completely sharp strike, very light even wear and lovely deep silvery gray patina overall with lighter patina at the high points. Perfect for a “never need replacement” affordable type coin.
*NEW* Fresh out of grading at the Long Beach show, this is another coin that ended up in the wrong box at the my office and missed being listed with the Long Beach Newps. Listed for the first time, this piece shows a complete strong strike on both sides with no weakness whatsoever. Lovely original with medium silvery patina which is graced with rose highlights overrall and lovely blue-green and golden rose around the peripheries. Full, strong, original luster.
*SOLD - NEW* Just out of grading at the PCGS Members Only show, this original Bust Half shows a full strike, medium to deep silvery gray patina with golden peripheries and complete luster. Reverse is a lighter even silvery gray. Completely problem free surfaces, very attractive and very high end of the grade.
*NEW* Very sharp and fully detailed strike on both sides. Basically brilliant with some pretty silvery-blue patina in and around the stars on the obverse. Fascinating and unusual die breaks on the obverse enhance the cool factor of this wonderful “Arrows” Half. Top end, distraction free surfaces and full luster complete this great two-year type.
*NEW* Liberty Seated Half Pattern in Copper (J-280, “God Our Trust”) PF66+RB CAMEO NGC Picked from a private collection, this is just a STUNNING Copper Proof and FINEST graded at either service. I seldom buy patterns, but this coin was so compelling and reasonably priced, I had to put it into inventory. Needle sharp strike with Cameo devices contrasting fully bright and reflective surfaces. Gorgeous, even rose tinged brown. Superb in every way with Extreme Eye-Appeal.
*SOLD* Sharply struck and fully lustrous example of this slightly tougher date. Lovely champagne silvery rose patina on the obverse and basically brilliant reverse with some champagne around the peripheries. Lovely and scarce in this condition. Compare the pop of 22 in MS64, with 8 grading higher to the more common 1877-S which shows a pop of 69 in MS64, with 71 coins grading higher. Jumps to $5250 in MS65 in CU Price Guide.
*SOLD* Just out of a private collection and submitted once to PCGS, this low mintage (4800) date is an absolute KNOCK-OUT. Starting with a COMPLETE, full, crisp strike which shows every detail of the design to its fullest. The fields are impeccable and show a shimmering semi-prooflike glow with just a hint of light golden patina. This exquisite coin is finished with a lovely ring of golden-violet toning framing both sides, deeper and stronger in color on the obverse. Eye-appeal is simply AMAZING.
*SOLD - NEW* Awesome ultra-low mintage Seated Half. With an original mintage of only 12,000, this date is scarce. The present example is fully struck with a beautiful blend of rose and blue on both sides. Reverse is rose in the centers blending to blue at the peripheries. Both sides are lovely and this piece is finished with full luster.
