A great coin for the grade, starting with a solid strike, clean fields and full glowing luster. Beautifully toned with light rose in th centers and bright blue peripheral toning on both sides. An exceptional Isabella.
*ON HOLD - NEW* It’s been quite a while since I have had a MS64 Lafayette in inventory, so it makes sense that this one was bought back from a customer, so it already had the APRC seal of approval. Fully struck and full brilliant with complete blazing luster. Top of the grade in every way. Bright and beautiful near GEM.
A beautiful original Gem Albany exhibiting even light violet-rose patina overall, with some burnt orange peripheral toning on both sides. Fully lustrous. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer coin for the price.
*NEW* A superb example, particularly for the MS65 grade. Fully struck, brilliant and flashy with a bit of light rainbow patina along the upper obverse periphery at “Liberty” and along the reverse upper right peripheral quadrant. Great California for the price.
*SOLD - NEW* World's Fair Columbian Expo Medal in Aluminum. More valuable than gold at the time of issue, this Medal is a stunning Ultra CAMEO Proof. I have no ideal why NGC calls these MS. They are obvious Proof strikings.
*NEW* Well I haven’t viewed a Hudson that I wanted to place in my inventory for many years. Of course a great one had to come from my own inventory, originally purchased quite a long time ago. This undervalued Commem is sooooooo hard to find in true Gem condition. The present specimen is very well struck for the issue, brilliant white with impeccable surfaces and glowing full luster.
*Aspen Park Collection* Perfect super smooth original, probably a pocket piece judging by the smooth surfaces and wonderful original gray toning with deeper gray in and around the devices and lettering. Great coin.
A light even mix of silvery-blue and golden patina overlays immaculate surfaces. Complete cartwheel luster finishes this GEM Oregon. A very scarce date in MS67 with only 17 graded by NGC. Compare that to 402 1937-D Oregons graded MS67.
An original GEM, basically brilliant, but with a hint of ice blue patina overall. The usual satiny finish that is characteristic of this date, but with considerable flash, that is not characteristic of this date. A amazingly low mintage of 3,004. If this coin was Modern and had a mintage of 3000, it would be worth multiples of the current price...and every coin would be a perfect GEM housed in a Mint issued plastic case. One of the best values of the current coin market and a classic design.
Mostly brilliant centers going out to lovely violet rose and blue at the peripheries. An original with full blazing luster. You might spend the rest of your life looking for a better MS64. I certified this coin and expected a MS65 grade.
