1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar, Heraldic Eagle, Nice Mid Grade Example
Year: 1798
Condition: PCGS F-15
Description: 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.

1859-O Seated Liberty Dollar, Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1859O
Condition: PCGS AU-55
Description: A nice coin showing considerable luster, more than I could capture properly. A splash of red-purple toning from long storage in an old album. Far nicer than the usual certified AU common date Seated Dollar, most of which have been obviously cleaned (yes, both major services DO certify cleaned coins) or are very dark. Also, much nicer "in the hand" than shown here.

1859-S Seated Liberty Dollar, Classic San Francisco Mint Rarity
Year: 1859S
Condition: PCGS AU-58
Description: An old time original example of this classic American Dollar rarity. There are only four San Francisco Mint Seated Dollar dates to choose from, this one, the incredibly rare 1872-S (9,000 struck, maybe 750 known?), the ultra-rare 1870-S (12 known and a 1/2 Million Dollar+ coin, when you can find one) 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. The entire mintage was struck expressly to be shipped to China for trade, resulting in few if any coins being saved in high grade in this country. Most survivors are VF or EF at best, and usually cleaned or damaged. 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, also likely high. 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 would likely 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 full attention due to its complete originality, attractive color and 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. Seemingly mark-free, you have to look hard to find any contact marks or disturbances. There is 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 originality and attractiveness. I will leave it to the viewer to decide if that merits my asking price ...

1859-S Seated Liberty Dollar, Classic San Francisco Mint Rarity
Year: 1859S
Condition: Good+
Description: The "Alpha" to the "Omega" of coin #5800. This is a solid, problem free circulated example of a Seated Liberty Dollar. That would be scarce enough if this were just an 1872 or 1842, probably the two most common dates in the series - almost unbelievable that it is an 1859-S. Only 20,000 coins struck and fewer than 10% of those left in existence in all likely hood, and the only No Motto issue of the entire Type from this Mint.

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.

1875-S Trade Dollar, Almost Uncirculated with Chop Marks
Year: 1875S
Condition: AU-50+
Description: A decent Almost Uncirculated example of this common date with two chop marks. One is a more unusual "bar" chop that appears along Liberty's outstretched arm. Decent color that looks original at first blush, although I suspect an extremely old, extremely light cleaning. Plenty of luster remains and it would possibly still certify today. Coin and chops are guaranteed genuine, in perpetuity.

1877 Trade Dollar, Almost Uncirculated Example, Nice Color
Year: 1877
Condition: NGC AU-50
Description: Attractive light toning of orange & yellow around the periphery of the Obverse rim, along with signs that the coin's surfaces were at least Semi-Prooflike when struck. The overall color of the fields is a light purple gray. One interesting feature that I had never before noticed on this date is that the logotype has the same "dropped 7" that is one of the markers of authenticity for the 1877 Indian Cent. If I remember correctly, the master hub for this coin had the "187-" as part of the design, the final digit to be punched in as needed when dies were actually made. The shape and position of the final 7 is not quite exactly the same as the Indian Cent, the punch used being of course larger than that used on a Small Cent, but it shares the same slightly bulbous serif and clearly hangs lower than the other 7. Perhaps of interest - certainly worthy of paying more attention to such in the future!

1877-S Trade Dollar, Classic Type Coin
Year: 1877S
Condition: EF-45
Description: One of the most commonly encountered Trade Dollar dates, along with the 1876-P & S, and the 1877-P, which makes it perfect as an example for Type. Well struck with obvious luster remaining in the protected areas - what most "commercial" dealers call an AU.

1878 Morgan Dollar, 7 over 8 Tailfeathers, VAM 41A
Year: 1878
Condition: PCGS MS-62
Description: For those who prefer a Certified coin, a PCGS graded & attributed example of VAM 41A (please see my comments under coin #6721). 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-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Underrated Date
Year: 1879O
Condition: PCGS/CAC MS-64
Description: One of my favorite Morgan Dollar dates, and definitely underrated ... or perhaps "underestimated" might be a better term. The typical feeling is that date is common in BU grades, being the first struck at New Orleans and in a reasonable number (2.9 Million). However, it is my opinion this belief is due to the large number of Sliders (AU-58) masquerading as BU coins. As nice, genuinely BU coins are not that available, the grading services have taken it upon themselves to certify what I consider questionably Uncirculated coins in the grades of MS-61 and MS-62. This in order to help make the date "marketable" for telemarketers and mail order grind houses. This creates the sense of BU coins being available, whenever you want one. However, NICE no question Choice BU coins, such as this one are not. Very original surfaces with a nice bit of rim toning, with a stunning Gem BU Reverse. This is a date where a CAC sticker really means something, both to assure quality within the grade, and due to the paucity of MS-65 coins, which bring 5 times as much. I think that this makes this date in this grade a good deal. My price is comparable to what a similar CAC stickered coin brought Nov. of 2017 - and that did not have the nice color.

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.

1881-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Scarce
Year: 1881O
Condition: PCGS/CAC MS-64+
Description: Very scarce in Gem BU grades, largely due to indifferent strikes and excess handling by the Treasury. This coin is very close, being well struck with bright lustrous surfaces that are cleaner than most. This would fit easily into any high grade BU set, without breaking the bank. The MS-64+ Population at PCGS is less than 5% of that of the MS-65 Pop, and the CAC population is lesser still.

1881-S Morgan Dollar, Original Toned Gem Unc
Year: 1881S
Condition: PCGS MS-65+
Description: Gem Uncirculated+ in an recently certified PCGS slab. "Sheet" toning on the Obverse is primarily blue-green with an undertone of red. The Reverse is primarily white with a strong electric blue crescent at the rim, switching to orange red a bit farther in. This toning pattern suggests years spent in a bag of coins, the Obverse being in contact with the bag surface or near it.

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.
