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.
*SOLD - NEW* I have bought, sold and viewed most of the greatest commems on the planet and I can say that this Lafayette is without a doubt the most beautifully toned MS64 example I have ever seen and may be a contender for the most beautiful Lafayette in any grade. Brilliant centers with a hint of rose patina going to bright crimson blue around the peripheries. Bright and lustrous. Reverse is mostly brilliant with rose and blue peripheral toning framing the entire coin. AMAZING Lafayette Dollar.
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.
*SOLD - NEW* The San Francisco strike of an original, matched PDS Set. Very light patina overall with a blue, burnt orange and violet rose periphery. Sold as a PDS set. Original PDS Ark sets are tough to find. A set that is matching in grade with wonderful toning is almost impossible to find.
*SOLD* 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* A gorgeous original with "California" toning. Bright with blazing luster, just the way the finest California's can come and finished with beautiful bright violet and blue toning, mostly at the peripheries.
*SOLD - NEW* An incredibly toned Columbian, starting with light violet in the centers, going out in a bullseye pattern to bright royal blue, then golden violet surrounding the entire periphery. Very similar, but lighter on the reverse. Another stunner from this new private collection.
*SOLD - NEW* Possibly the most difficult early US commem to find with strong positive eye-appeal, this Hudson ranks among the most beautiful I have seen. Light rose overall going out to light, pastel blue with bright, fully lustrous surfaces. You will not finds a more beautiful Hudson for this or probably any price.
