1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar, Heraldic Eagle, Nice Mid Grade Example
Year: 1798
Condition: PCGS F-15
Description: (SOLD October, 2018 for $1,700) Large Eagle, 13 Stars, Pointed 9, Four Stripes. Overall details of a Very Fine in my opinion, the stated certified grade "netted" down a few points for some minor marks. As is common for 18th and 19th Century U. S. Silver coins, the minor marks in the field and an area of disturbance at the edge (blown up image shown), appear to have resulted in the deduction of a few grade point by PCGS. This is a good example of their approach to "market grading", which seeks to establish the VALUE of a coin, not the technical state of preservation. By the way, I have certainly seen worse looking coins in certified VF holders! That makes the coin a good deal, as you get a "meatier" looking coin at the value of a lesser grade. This appears largely original, but as is common it is difficult to tell absolutely with coins that have been put away for a Century – this came out of a very old collection that has been off the market since prior to 1950. PCGS Guide value of $2,150.

1846 Seated Liberty Dollar,
Year: 1846
Condition: EF-45+
Description: It is my opinion that this could well certify as an AU if submitted, however as it is not already entombed in plastic, I will ere on the side of being conservative. Nice blue-gray surfaces with some red highlights, evident luster still remaining among the stars and lettering. This appears to be original, although perhaps it might have seen a very light cleaning sometime well over 50-75 years ago. For the purposes of the grading services, this would be considered a no problem coin, given how they treat this series. A very nice coin to serve as a Type example, guaranteed genuine of course. A further commentary: this is considered a common date, with a mintage of 110,600. Think about that for a second. With a mintage that would catapult most coins into the category of a Key Date, and a survival of perhaps less than 5,000 specimens in all grades, this is considered "common". PCGS alone has certified almost 8,000 "Key Date" 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cents in Uncirculated grades. Never mind NGC, ANACS, etc. and the tens of thousands of Circ coin out there. Yes, more people collect Cents than Dollars, in general, however Silver Dollars consistently rank in the top five collected coin Types. I would say that this makes the entire Seated Dollar series ridiculously undervalued - more than likely, this is due simply to the difficultly in finding a large number of the dates, making it hard to promote the series. Food for thought, if you are of a contrarian bent ...

1859-S Seated Liberty Dollar, Classic San Francisco Mint Rarity
Year: 1859S
Condition: PCGS AU-58
Description: An old-time example of this classic American Dollar rarity. There are only four San Francisco Mint Seated Dollar dates to choose from, this one, the very rare 1872-S, the ultra-rare 1870-S and the non-existent 1873-S (Zero known to exist). By those impossible standards, this is relatively 'common'! Only 20,000 struck and fewer than 10% of those left in existence in all likely hood. This is also the only No Motto issue of the Type from this Mint. 3/4 of the entire mintage was struck expressly to be shipped to China for trade, the balance of 5,000 paid out into domestic circulation, resulting in few if any coins being saved in high grade in this country. 17 in the grade at PCGS, which is almost certainly high due to resubmissions to try to get a 61 or 62 - not surprising that dealers would try as this would make it a $10,000+ coin. The PCGS Population of Unc coins sits at about 23. This is also likely high, few are above MS-62 and generally without much eye appeal. This particular coin has never been auctioned, apparently residing in the same collection since being graded in all likelihood, sometime in the late 1990's based on the label. I will be honest in my impression that this coin is resubmitted today it would possibly not certify a 58, as the current trend is to coins that are 'bright' at that grade. Ludicrous in the extreme given the age and circumstance of this issue. However, it merits attention due to its attractive color and hints of lightly Prooflike surfaces, not surprising given the mintage. The primary color is a deep blue with red orange undertones, more visible in the fields around Liberty and the Eagle. Largely free of distracting contact marks, although some very light hairlines are present. There is also the sense of a couple of very light planchet flaws being present, not in terms of roughness, but a difference in color. Not surprising as the source for the Silver used to strike this issue was either Silver bars coming from Mexico, or salvaged non-U. S. fractional coinage. That plus the relatively primitive assay and parting equipment in use in San Francisco meant that planchet streaks were common at this time. These do not however distract too greatly - I mention them for accuracy. Regardless of how you view the assigned grade, given the history of the issue and the abuses heaped upon the series as a whole, few survivors retain this amount of 'pizzaz'. I will leave it to the viewer to decide if that merits my asking price ... as a note, a similarly toned PCGS/CAC specimen sold in August, 2018 at $7,500, well over the PCGS Guide Value (I will note that I thought that coin nicer than the present example).

1873 Trade Dollar, Very Scarce First Year Coin
Year: 1873
Condition: VF/EF
Description: (SOLD for $250 May, 2014 - the listing left posted for its information value) The typical first year of issue for most coin series is reasonably common, due to hoarding by the general public - the perfect example is the 1909 VDB Cent. The 1873 Trade Dollar however is a distinct exception, as virtually the entire mintage was shipped directly to the Orient, as that is what this very "commercial" coin was meant for. As a result, survivors are very few, with an estimate of as few as 2,000 coins left existing out of the mintage of 400,000 or so. As such this is a "sleeper" that suffers from the general lack of collectors for the Series, and one of my favorite dates. By the way, I have sold this same coin TWICE. I had sold it to a dealer for his own collection, then purchased it back, selling it again to a happy collector.

1876-S Trade Dollar, Scarce Hub Combination, Micro S
Year: 1876S
Condition: Extremely Fine
Description: Struck from Type I/II Hubs, Micro S, Breen 5802. This hub combination is noted in Bower's Dollar text as often found chopmarked, which suggests most went straight to the Orient. Coins struck from the Type I/II combination are perhaps one in five of surviving 1876-S coins overall, the Micro S Reverse is scarcer still. Regardless, the coin stands on its own as a nice original Type coin. Guaranteed genuine of course.

1878 Morgan Dollar, 7 over 8 Tailfeathers, VAM 41A
Year: 1878
Condition: PCGS MS-62
Description: Slightly baggy as a majority of the 7/8 TF coins seem to be, but otherwise a nice bright coin. These commonly bring a premium as a PCGS attributed coin, because of the collectors chasing VAM registry sets.

1878 Morgan Dollar, 8 Tailfeathers
Year: 1878
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: (SOLD May, 2016 - the listing left posted for the information value) A nice original example of the first Morgan Dollar Hub type, minted in the fairly limited numbers of 750,000 - 800,000 (stated mintage figures vary). The production ceased due to someone pointing out that the Eagle should have had only 7 tail feathers. A plethora of varieties exist - this coin has not been attributed to VAM number, for those who like a challenge. Otherwise, an original Uncirculated coin (MS-60 to 61), bright, original and problem free. While a bit scuffy as shown, a more than acceptable example of a true BU coin. Many of this date were never released at the time of minting, and spent nearly a Century in Treasury bags being moved multiple times between various storage facilities. As a result, they tend to come "baggy" and even certified MS-63's have more marks on them that you will see on a common dates such as 1881-S or 1884-O.

1878 Morgan Dollar, 8 Tailfeathers, Uncirculated
Year: 1878
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-60+)
Description: An original Uncirculated example of the first Morgan Dollar design struck. It was quickly noticed that all of the other Eagle's previously used on U. S. coinage only had seven tailfeathers - why this would have been that much of a concern is unknown (bad luck perhaps??). Either way, less than 700,000 of this design were struck, and due to the changeover to 7 TF, these were not released for circulation to any great extent. The result was many years of storage in bags, and being moved about, so the typical survivor is MS-63 or below. This coin shows the typical, light bagginess encountered, but is a solid BU coin - likely it would certify MS-61 or 62. They do tend to give this date a bit of a "mulligan". This is an example of VAM 17, with doubled Obverse and Reverse. LIBERTY is the most obvious doubling on the Obverse, however the Reverse is sharply doubled over many of the features. Scarce but not "rare" as defined in the VAM world - but no less interesting.

1878-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Interesting Color
Year: 1878S
Condition: PCGS MS-63
Description: A decent original Uncirculated example of this first year San Francisco issue, with old folder toning. More interesting on the Reverse, which shows a solid ring around the rim of light blue with red centers. The Obverse is a mishmash of similar colors, more colorful and with more blue in it that I could capture. The Reverse is not as dark either; I changed the contrast to try to reduce the "flare" from the lighting used. It always seems like the perfect angle to show the toning on a coin is the same that produces the most reflection in a slabbed coin!

1879-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Looks Undergraded to Me!
Year: 1879S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: Out of an original BU roll that was sold as an "investment" package back in the 1970's. All of the coins were submitted to PCGS, which was brutal on all of them! A totally "fresh" looking BU coin, with obviously P/L Obverse surfaces with Cameo contrast. The Reverse lacks P/L surfaces, so no nod from PCGS. Either way, a much nicer coin that the typical 64.

1879-S Morgan Dollar, Gem Uncirculated, Unusual Toning Pattern
Year: 1879S
Condition: PCGS MS-65
Description: An original Gem Uncirculated coin in an older PCGS holder. This shows an unusual russet-colored toning pattern across the bottom of the Obverse, caused by that part of the coin laying against the side of a canvas bag. This is commonly called "textile toning", as it shows the weave of the bag's material. I find it interesting, and the coin is unquestionably original - the viewer will have to make up their own mind as to whether they like it or not.

1880 Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1880
Condition: MS-63
Description: The early Philadelphia Mint Morgan Dollars are a bit scarcer than those from the Branch Mints, especially in MS-64 and above. This was due to excessive handling of bags, meaning more marks from banging together during transport. This is a nice bright white Choice BU coin, a bit nicer than that listed as #6653 (if still available). This date shoots up in MS-64 to close to $150, making a correctly graded MS-63 a relative bargain.

1882 Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1882
Condition: MS-64
Description: A nice bright original BU coin. In my opinion this will easily certify as MS-64 if submitted. The early Philadelphia Mint Morgan Dollars are a bit scarcer than those from the Branch Mints, especially in sixty-four and above. This was due to excessive handling of bags, meaning more marks from banging together during transport.

1882-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Semi-Prooflike
Year: 1882S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: Very clean for the grade, with typical nice '82-S surfaces. A sense of Semi-Prooflike surface, with light Cameo contrast and attractive album rim toning - PQ for "just" a 64, certainly worth a small premium.

1882-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Amazing Toning!
Year: 1882S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: Stunning original old album color, which surrounds Liberty's features with a mix of yellow-orange, blue-green and russet. Liberty's head is frosted, causing a nice "cameo" effect. It was hard to get a good image to represent the actual colors on this coin, as the center of the coin was extremely reflective - this definitely looks nicer "in the hand" than my images allow. Certainly worth a premium for the lover of colorful Morgans.

1882-S Morgan Dollar, Gem Uncirculated, Interesting Toning
Year: 1882S
Condition: PCGS MS-65
Description: Stunning original old rim toning, likely from long storage in an album. A mix of "bricky" red and green at the rims, with a subtle "old Silver" coloration at the centers. Typical '82-S surfaces which have a sense of Semi-Prooflike look to them as well as some light Cameo effect. Very unusual color.

Year: 1883
Condition: MS-63
Description: The early Philadelphia Mint Morgan Dollars are a bit scarcer than those from the Branch Mints (other than Carson City), especially in MS-64 and above. This was due to excessive handling of bags, meaning more marks from banging together during transport. This is a nice original Choice BU coin, with a hint of light lemon yellow rim toning, likely from the wrapper of an original roll.
