      1793 FLOWING HAIR, CHAIN REVERSE LARGE CENT.
                                      PCGS PO1.  SOLD.
This classic rarity of the very first issue of a one cent coin from the United States Mint remains enigmatic in collectors viewpoint despite having the reverse design revised after one year.  The mere mintage of 36,103 examples has been documented over the course of our nation's history to have a very small percentage of surviving examples in all conditions, including this basal example. For those who can appreciate owning a piece of American coinage that circulated during the life of George Washington.

Bountiful luster and exceptionally mark free surfaces give this coin the appearance of Mint State.


































                                                                                                                                                                                         
         1847 LIBERTY SEATED HALF DOLLAR. PCGS AU-50,
                             Guttag Family Pedigree.SOLD
  Brothers Julius and Henry Guttag were prominent numismatists and securities dealers in New York City in the 1920's and 1930's.  The business which was located on Wall Street, became a strong competitor for numismatist B.Max Mehl of Fort Worth, Texas.  The most recent sale of their extensive holdings was conducted by Stack's / Bowers in November 2011 at Baltimore, Maryland during the Whitman Coin and Collectibles Expo.
The moderate layer of toning over the entire coin subdues the merit of the sharpness of detail that is typically associated with a much higher condition.  In this day of so much controversy over the long term effects of intentional alteration of coin surfaces, it is remarkable to encounter a coin that has unequivocally been left in it's natural state of aging, as this coin displays.

             1909-S LINCOLN CENT. PCGS MS-64BN / CAC
              1st GENERATION "RATTLER" HOLDER. SOLD.

With enough red color remaining on both sides to consider that this coin is more worthy of a Red-Brown designation.  The CAC approval is well deserved, as this coin is certainly in the top percentage of coins graded MS-64 by PCGS.




















                                                                                                                                         
 
1876-CC Liberty Seated 10C. NGC MS64 Doubled Die Obverse
Fortin variety 107b, R-5. At or near the top of the Condition Census.  SOLD.

The last public sale of an example of this scarce doubled die obverse variety occurred in 2005 in a Heritage Auctions Signature sale, when a PCGS MS63 coin from the Tim Cook Collection realized $1,840.
This coin is lavishly colored on both sides in a deep patina of blue and violet, with the instantly recognizable late die state features of the reverse which make it significantly more scarce than the F-107 variety.
