1879 Stella Flowing Hair sold for $184,500 to lead Heritage Auctions Long Beach Expo Signature® U.S. Coin Auctions at $16,503,414. The event attracted 3,560 bidders from around the world and generated perfect sell-through rates of 100% in value and lots sold.

1879 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, JD-1, R.3, PR65 NGC (Illustrated by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

the 1879 Floating Hair Stella, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, JD-1, R.3, PR65 Cameo NGC who won the event’s highest prize was one of the two Flowing Hair stars at the top of the final results. Another one 1879 Floating Hair Stella, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, JD-1, R.3, PR65 NGC won an auction of $174,000.

Stellas were originally minted as a coin exchangeable with five European currencies. Two varieties were created: one with coiled hair and another—like the first two batches of this sale—with flowing hair.

The event continued an extraordinary start to 2022 for Heritage’s U.S. Coins Department: the U.S. Coins Auction in January FUN US Coins Signature® Auctions soared to $65,422,650 in total sales, part of the combined $74 million for the event.

“Rare-date gold coins have soared in this auction, leading the way with high prices,” said Heritage Auctions President Greg Rohan. “It is clear that rare date and record quality coins are attracting increased interest from collectors, with auction prices to prove it.”

Also reaching $174,000 were a 1795 Bust Capped Right Eagle, MS61 And one 1862 Liberty Double Eagle, MS63+★. The latter more than doubled previous high of $78,000which was set at the Heritage Auction in August 2020.

The 1795 capped bust right eagle dates from the first year the United States Mint minted gold coins; the half eagles were struck first, followed by a delivery of 1,097 Capped Bust Right Eagles. This example depicts the 13-leaf variety BD-5, the last variety struck. It comes from an existing population of only 35-45 pieces.

The 1862 Liberty Double Eagle, MS63+★ is the Philadelphia Mint’s most elusive Type One Liberty double eagle except for the unsalvageable 1861 Reverse Pack, and copies of all grades remain rare. Eight were recovered from the wreckage of the SS Republicand another in the treasury of the SS Brother Jonathan, but no great treasure has been discovered; the surviving population in all grades has been estimated at 150-200 specimens, most in the XF-AU range. This specimen is the second-best certified example from both major grading services, thanks to its Plus and Star designations.

Three coins – a 1932 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, MS65, an 1884-S Morgan Dollar, MS64+ and an 1886-O Morgan Dollar, MS65 – fetched auctions of $156,000.

the 1932 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, MS65 is one of the rarest late saints, often in high demand at auction. The extant population was estimated at 75-95.

the 1884-S Dollar Morgan, MS64+ is undeniably rare: most of the 3.2 million strike dollars of 1884 produced by the San Francisco mint have been put into circulation.

1884-S Dollar MS64+ PCGS

Most of the coins held by the government were probably melted down in 1918, under the provisions of the Pittman Act, meaning that relatively few were saved. Uncirculated coins are coveted, and for good reason: NGC and PCGS have teamed up to certify only 25 examples in MS64 (two in 64+), with only six finer examples.

the 1886-O Morgan Dollar, MS65 PCGS, one of only three noted by PCGS in MS65 (one in 65+), comes from a problem that was not well done. An estimated 2–4 million coins were put into circulation; the majority of the minting was preserved in government warehouses and most of these coins were probably melted down in 1918, under the provisions of the Pittman Act. The 1886-O was not well represented in 1960s Treasury releases, alerting collectors and dealers to its elusive high quality nature for the first time. Third party grading has established the 1886-O as a top condition rarity in the series for the past 35 years.

Other auction records include:

A 1870-CC Liberty Eagle, VF25 climbed to $78,000; the previous record for a VF example was the $66,000 made at Heritage Auctions in February 2018.

A 1883 Morgan Dollar, MS68, with a stunning obverse tone, got 23 bids before closing at $34,800 – the only example from that date to bring more was a graduated “plus” example. This piece set a new standard for a 68 without the “plus” note.

Also reaching $78,000 was one of the most intriguing pieces of the sale, a 2001-D Lincoln Cent—Muled with a Roosevelt Dime Reverse—MS65 Red PCGS. A mule is a coin minted with mismatched dies. In the long history of the United States Mint, only a few dozen mules are known, and most are unique. Of all the mule possibilities in American numismatics, the most likely to occur is the Lincoln cent/Roosevelt dime mule, largely because the diameters of the cent (19 mm) and dime (18 mm) are similar, and each type is from a high mintage. . Heritage Auctions experts know five of these pieces; the example offered here is the second known 2001-D cent/dime mule.

Another error piece that gave an outstanding result was a 1977-D Dollar Eisenhower, MS63, which drew 21 bids before closing at $26,400. A dressed Eisenhower dollar should weigh 22.7 grams, but this example tips the scales at 24.9. It has been reported that approximately 15 coins – including this one – are known to have been minted on planchettes intended for 40% silver San Francisco Bicentennial Ike Dollars.

Other highlights included, but were not limited to:

$150,000: one “1802/1” Quarter eagle, MS64+

$150,000: 1915-S Panama-Pacific Fifty Dollar, MS65

$144,000: 1876 ​​Three Dollar, PR65 Ultra Cameo

$22,800: One dollar 1901-O, colored MS67+ (only one thinner graduated)

The heart of the collection is undoubtedly a selection of 95 Louis d’Or Mirliton (includes two Double Louis d’Or Mirliton), comprising all but perhaps a dozen known mint date pairings, and certainly stands as one of the most comprehensive collections of its kind ever assembled – far surpassing the collections of Ford and patrickand encompassing many missing pieces from the 1971 Parke Bernet sale of the The camel cargo.

Highlights include a 1725 La Rochelle short palmsa Mirliton de Béarn MS64 from 1725and the 1725-Y apparently unreleased (ex. Ford). Other post-revolution rarities include the second most beautiful coin of 5 francs of Napoleon “Cent Jours” certified (MS64)the best 1808-A 20 Francs (MS65+)and an immaculate 1818-A 20 Francs graduated MS66+.

Auction of coins in old mounts scheduled for March 7

Buy the slab, not the part? Not exactly.

But the latest heritage auctions Showcase auction of US coins in early holders focuses on parts that have been encapsulated in PCGS or NGC holders for a particularly long period. These pieces have a reputation for being often underclassed, and the slabs themselves are popular, hence this offer.

Included are over 600 sets of parts in PCGS Green Label mounts, first generation PCGS ratchet or “clacker” mounts, NGC “bold” mounts, NGC Green Label mounts, and even some first generation mounts.

One piece from this auction that attracted a lot of attention early on is a 1795 Dollar with flowing hair, three leaves, graduated VF30 (92219) and housed in an old Gen. 1.2 vintage. This coin is the B-5 variety, BB-27, which of 19,1795 Flowing Hair dollar marriages is the most plentiful, making it decidedly popular as a type coin and generally collectible in most grades with good visual appeal. This example exhibits several positive attributes for its quality, including an original, uniform slate gray and gunmetal patina, and a lack of troublesome plank setting marks. Some old scratches on freedom the cheek and a slight toning streak that slopes from the 7 of the date to the 8 star serve as pedigree markers.

1795 Eagle, Morgan Dollars, Pine Tree Shilling and “Muled” Lincoln Cent among the highlights

Continuing the momentum of his record FUN American Coin Auctions, Heritage auctions will again serve as official auctioneer for the Long Beach Expo U.S. Coin Auctions February 24-27. The event will take place one week after the Long Beach Expo an event.

The auction of US coins during January’s US Coins FUN Signature Auction soared to $65,422,650 in total sales, part of the combined $74 million for the event. The record breaking event brought new auction records for 88 of the 211 lots that changed hands for $50,000 or more.

“The new year has started with an extraordinary result at the FUN auction, reflecting the strong demand for elite coins”, President of Heritage Auctions Greg Rohan noted. “This auction is a fitting sequel, filled with rarities that continue to shine the spotlight on America’s top coin collectors at Heritage Auctions.”

Among the highlights of the Long Beach auction:

A 1795 Eagle, BD-5, R.5, MS61 NGC is from the first year when the United States currency gold coins struck – half eagles were struck first, followed by a delivery of 1,097 Bust with headdress Right eagles from Mandate 39. This remarkable coin represents the BD-5 13-leaf variety, the last variety minted and this pair of dies was probably used to mint 500 to 1,000 copies of the reported mintage. It comes from an existing population of only 35-45 pieces.

As the 1895 dollar morganthe 1876 ​​Three dollar PR65 Ultra Cameo NGC. JD-1, R.5 high is only available in Proof format. But the 1876 ​​three is most often compared to 1875 three dollars, another proof date only. The 1876 is not as rare as the previous year – a distinction obscured by the difference between an official mintage, apparently at just 45 pieces, with 20 proofs delivered in February and 25 more in June, and speculation of a larger actual print run. This coin is clearly an original strike, most likely one of the 20 proofs delivered in February.

A 1926-S Nickel MS65 PCGS. CAC comes from the single number of the Buffalo Nickel series with a print run of less than one million (970,000) copies. This draw directly translates to higher quality rarity compared to most other numbers. Apart Guide booklet varieties like 1918/7-Dthe 1916 double diceetc., the 1926-S is the quintessential key date of the series in Gem condition. PCGS yields only 18 coins in this category (four of which are rated Plus), none finer; the NGC Census saves 12 gems, with four finer (1/22) MS66 pieces. None of the MS66 NGC parts are CAC approved. The last Gem PCGS coin of this grade offered by Heritage Auctions was a CAC approved example at the 2018 FUN Signature auction which fetched $99,000.

Sculptor Auguste Saint-Gaudens sometimes reused his artistic ideas in multiple commissions. The head of Freedom on the 1907 Wire Rim Eagle MS65 PCGS is a direct descendant of the allegorical female figure of the Victory on the Sherman monument. The second generation of the Victory, a small head-only reduction, is actually based on an earlier, unused study for the head. This is the famous NIKE-EIPHNH (Victory-Peace) bust which was cast between 1892 and 1903. By turning Victory’s head in profile and placing it in a circle, it became her figure for Liberty on the $10 gold coin. President Theodore Roosevelt made the most significant design change when he suggested the sculptor replace the laurel wreath with an Indian war bonnet. This example is one of only 72 in 65 (8 in 65+), and there are only 29 more beautiful.

the San Francisco Mint produced 3.2 million strike dollars in 1884, most of which went into circulation. Circulated examples are fairly common, even in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades; most of those held by the government were probably melted down in 1918, under the provisions of the Pittman Law. Most NGC and PCGS Mint State examples are in the MS60 and MS63 range; the 1884-S Dollar MS64+ PCGS offered in this auction is one of 25 certified copies between the two services.

Once part of the collections of both Reed Hawn and Donald G. Partricka 1652 Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, Reverse N, MS65 NGC CAC. Noe-10, W-750, Salmon 8-Diii, R.3 is a fine example of a gem which has been described in the Hawn Catalog as “a marvelous specimen, one of the finest known”. He achieved the second highest price in the Reed Hawn collection of Massachusetts moneybehind only the very rare Noe 2-B willow tree shilling. The Noe-10 pine shilling is frequently found in the circulated grades, but is rare in the uncirculated choice. This coin, on the census as the inverted “N” type, is tied for best known with three other examples – each of the Noe-4 variety. This is the best Noe-10 known to the experts at Heritage Auctions.

One of the unique pieces in the auction is a 2001-D Lincoln Cent – ​​Muled with a Roosevelt Dime Reverse – MS65 Red PCGS. A mule is a coin minted with mismatched dies. In the long history of the United States Mint, only a few dozen mules are known, and most are unique. Of all the mule possibilities in American numismatics, the most likely to occur is the Lincoln penny / 1 Roosevelt penny mule, largely because the diameters of the cent (19mm) and dime (18mm) are similar, and each type comes from a high mintage. Heritage Auctions experts know five of these pieces; the example offered here is the second known 2001-D cent/dime mule.

William Wheeler Hubbella patent attorney philadelphia creamdevised a system of metrics goloid the currency that was pushed through Congress speak House Committee on Currency, Weights and Measure President and representative Alexander H.Stephensformer vice president of CSA. Together they pulled enough strings to get 425 of the 1879 Stella flowing hair hit. Stellas were originally minted as a coin exchangeable with five European currencies; two varieties were created: one with coiled hair and one with flowing hair, like the extraordinary 1879 Stella flowing hairJudd-1635, Pollock-1833, JD-1, R.3, PR65 NGC which appears in this auction.

A 1848 Quarter Eagle CAL. MS62PCGS is the first delivery of gold from California at the Philadelphia Mint, where it was struck in quarter eagle. The identifying mark, “CAL.”, was punched on the reverse after each coin was minted, and today some numismatic students consider these coins to be the first American commemorative coins. Few of the 1,389 coins produced with the special countermark survive today and most of those that survive show signs of circulation. PCGS and NGC have certified 123 examples in all grades, with only 46 submissions graded MS60 or finer.

Other highlights include, but are not limited to:

The sale features several private collections, including The Long Island Collection Part IIa blend that made its debut in ANA World Money Fair 2021 in Chicago. The second part of the collection is equally impressive, with 184 lots – 54 in the first session and another 130 distributed throughout the second session and the third online session on Sunday. Early Federal gold, silver and copper issues feature prominently throughout the collection, all in popular collectible grades to suit all interests. This collection represents only a part of the consignee’s rare pieces.

Among the centerpieces of the Long Island collection is a 1930-S Eagle MS64 NGC. While not Indian-headed eagles were minted from 1917 to 1919, then from 1921 to 1925, and again from 1927 to 1929, mintages were generally in the six figures. But Indian Head’s series of eagles had its share of low-draft issues, including the 1930-S. With only 96,000 coins minted, its production ranks seventh in the series. This San Francisco issue is the second rarest regular issue in the series. A small number was available from the Treasury Department as late as 1932, but few are believed to have been distributed during the depths of the Great Depression and that 150–200 coins survive, most in uncirculated condition.

the Reverend Rock Collection was assembled by a northeast collector who said it had come a long way from the days of polishing wheat pennies at his grandfather’s kitchen table, and we can confirm that he quickly understood the importance of condition and originality! As his collecting interests became more refined, he focused on certified premium pieces, building an American-style set that far surpassed his previous purchases.

the Girard collection revolves around many Town of Carson issues from the 1870s and 1880s. Some interesting outliers were added, including a 1907 Saint-Gaudens High Relief Wire Rim double eagle in sharp MS62 PCGS quality, near mint condition 1805 BD-2 Half Eagle, and a certified MS62 PCGS three-dollar gold coin. 18 additional lots are in the Premier Session, all Carson City coins – mostly silver issues, but also some CC gold. the half dollars stand out with Choice XF 1870-CC and 1871-CC halves, and one 1878-CC half dollar MS61 NGC certified.

Over 2,100 bidders flocked to the event, which generated perfect sale rates of 100% in value and lots sold.

These four dollar gold models have long been included in sets alongside regular issue coins, and are the only model issue with its own section in the annual Guide Book, between the three dollar gold coin and the $ 5 half eagle, each of which actually circulated, unlike the star.

“The Flowing Hair Star is one of the most important and popular coins in American numismatics” President of heritage auctions Greg Rohan noted. “This is a magnificent example of a must-have coin that will be the centerpiece of any serious collection. “

In Gold Mint’s first year, a 1795 Small Eagle, BD-4, R.5, MS61 PCGS made three dozen bids before closing at $ 90,000. the Currency of the United States minted gold coins for the first time in 1795, delivering 744 Capped Right Bust Half Eagles July 31. Production continued until September 16 of the same year, for a total of 8,707 pieces. The coinage of the half-eagles was then discontinued for the year and the production of Eagles has begun. This coin is one of 27 copies classified MS61.

A 1797 Dollar 10 × 6 Stars, Large Letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, MS63 NGC went up to $ 78,000 when the last of the 25 offers has arrived. Experts at Heritage Auctions believe this dollar ranks among the top two or three coins known. The typical 1797 B-3 dollars is likely to be found in XF grades or below, although several have been referred to as Uncirculated over the years.

A 1934-S dollar CAC MS66 + PCGS, the finest ever made by Heritage Auctions, reached $ 63,000. A little over a million 1934-S peace dollar were hit, placing it among the least drawn numbers of the set and a key date. It maintains a reputation for being one of the series’ most elusive problems, the rarest entry of the set, right down to ratings as high as MS64. the PCGS Population Report shows most uncirculated examples of 1934-S in a narrow range of MS62 to MS64; there are only a few hundred submissions on this service in MS65, and it is one of the 42 Premium Gems reported. Additionally, this is one of eight MS66 reps at PCGS with a Plus designation added – without any finer.

The Signature auction from December 16 to 19 of Patrimony crowns a record year for US coins and heritage auctions overall. Heritage’s world headquarters hosts the auction, with the First session Thursday evening December 16, preceded by a floor session in the afternoon. One in line Signed Internet session is Sunday afternoon December 19. This auction is now open for Internet auction at Coins.HA.com.

One of our shippers brings The Father and Son Collection at the auction. While not an extensive collection compared to the rare multi-million dollar coins and trophies that frequent our events, the sender’s words touch on the essence of the collection and the importance of the hobby that far exceeds any value of the coins themselves:

“My father came with meager means. When he was 10 years old his father died during the Great Depression. His mother raised my father and his two siblings. He worked extremely hard to complete his college education and earned two graduate degrees. He was making a comfortable living for himself and his family. He was a respected man. He was an enthusiastic and diverse hobbyist. He was a loving father.

“He started collecting in 1960, buying Proof and Mint sets at La Monnaie. He tried to get my brother and I interested in his collection, but I paid little attention to it until I was about 40 years old in 1995. My father and I went to local and regional exhibitions, have bought a piece or two and put them in my Dansco albums. We studied and watched these albums for hours. Very quickly, with his financial assistance, we had almost filled a full set of Morgan Dollar, Washington neighborhoods, Walking Liberty half dollars, commemorative coins and Peace dollars. Life was BIG. Over the years, we have gone from uneducated, naive and mad collectors (who did our fair share of bad purchases) to studied, insightful, knowledgeable, enthusiastic numismatists! We shared the love, enthusiasm and knowledge associated with collecting coins.

“Here you will find some of the coins that we have collected over the past 25 years. My father recently passed away. I miss telling him about the coins we have collected. I miss his enthusiasm and passion. I miss his knowledge. He had a remarkable memory and could tell me the grade of every piece and every date in “our” collection. It’s time for someone else to have fun with these coins. But do not worry. There are others that I keep in the hope of sharing my passion and my collector’s knowledge with my daughter or my grandchildren. The only words of wisdom my dad or I would share with any new collector is to educate yourself, buy from reputable companies or individuals, and share your passion with others. Thanks to Heritage Auctions for always taking care of my dad and me. Heritage answered all of our questions and always gave us good advice.

Our other collection featured in this auction is The Big Island Collection of Hawaiian Coins and Tokens, with awesome material offered in both the Premier and Signature Floor sessions. Highlights include:

  • 1881 five hundred hawaiian, model MS65 Medcalf 2CN-1, original design
  • 1881 Hawaii five cents, MS62 Medcalf-2CN-1, rare in all grades
  • ‘1884’ Hawaii 1/8 dollar, 7.5g, gold, MS66, fantasy striking hub print
  • 1887 Grove Ranch Medcalf TE-17 Plantation Token, MS62 Brown, only six certified pieces
  • Token 1891 Kahului Railroad, AU53 75 cents, Medcalf TL-14, only four certified copies
  • 1847 Hawaiian cent, MS65 Brown Medcalf-2CC-1, Crosslet 4, second rarest variety

Other pieces make this auction an unforgettable December. A Flowing Hair Stella 1879 displays spectacular field / device contrast, certified PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC. One dollar 1797 B-3, BB-71 Draped Bust is Condition Census grade, rated MS63 NGC. A splendid 1934-S Peace Dollar is the best we have ever dealt with, certified MS66 + PCGS with CAC, the CoinFacts flat coin. Other rarities abound.

As the song says, “Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a beautiful Hawaiian Christmas day…” Collectors will certainly be celebrating when the Big Island collection of Hawaiian coins and tokens crosses the auction block at the time of the year. Heritage Auctions US Coins Signature® event in December. 16-19, just in time for the holidays.

1881 5C Hawaii Five Hundred MS65 PCGS. Medcalf-2CN-1, KM-2. (Images provided by Collectors Universe.)

The aptly named Big Island collection includes 15 lots for sale in the state known as a tropical vacation getaway, but also one with significant numismatic history.

“The Big Island Collection tells the story of Hawaii’s monetary history, including tokens that circulated during a coin shortage,” said Sarah Miller, senior vice president of Heritage Auctions. “This collection also includes a fine example of what could have been with the fascinating Reginald Huth motif.”

The highlights of the Big Island collection include, but are not limited to:

An 1881 5C Hawaii Five Cents MS65 PCGS. Medcalf-2CN-1, KM-2 can be identified as one of the original 1881 minted in Paris on behalf of the owner of a nickel mine in New Caledonia, who offered to produce nickels for the Hawaiian Islands. The inscription on the obverse identifies King Kalakaua as the “King of the Sandwich Islands”, the name of Hawaii. The inverted design had a misspelling in the Hawaiian currency, leading to the belief that the combination of errors was enough for King Kalakaua to reject the currency proposal.

1847 1C Hawaii Cent MS65 Brown PCGS.  CAC.  Medium calf 2CC-1
1847 1C Hawaii Cent MS65 Brown PCGS. CAC. Medcalf 2CC-1. (Images provided by Collectors Universe.)

An 1847 1C Hawaii Cent MS65 Brown PCGS. CAC. Medcalf 2CC-1, cross 4 dated. It is the second of the five rarest varieties for the 1847 cents, which was the first official currency of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The obverse features a portrait of King Kamehameha III. The caption includes his name followed by KA MOI (“The King”). The reverse shows the denomination HAPA HANERI (“Hundredth part”) in a wreath that includes nine berries on the left and nine berries on the right. AUPUNI HAWAII (“Kingdom of Hawaii”) is above.

1884 1 / 8D Hawaii Fantasy Strike Hub Printing 7.5g MS66 PCGS
1884 1 / 8D Hawaii Fantasy Strike Hub Printing 7.5g MS66 PCGS. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

Around the turn of the century, an unknown die plummet produced a number of fantastic coins in various metals inspired by the Hawaiian coinage of 1883. It appears to have used the original hubs from 1883 to prepare the dies. An 1884 1 / 8D Hawaii Fantasy Strike Hub Impression 7.5g MS66 PCGS appears to be part of a set of three fantasy gold coins that surfaced in King Farouk’s fabulous collection. John Dannreuther believes that only two sets of fantastic coins have been minted in gold. Although the holder of the PCGS indicates “1884” as the date on this coin, the date on the coin itself is 1883.

Besides the Big Island collection, the auction is full of superlative examples that will be the highlight of any collectible coin cabinet.

1863 $ 1 MS67 NGC.  OC-1, low R.3
1863 $ 1 MS67 NGC. OC-1, low R.3. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

An 1863 $ 1 MS67 NGC. OC-1, Low R.3 was included when Heritage Auctions sold the Andre Dawson Baseball Hall of Fame collection in 1998. In the catalog for that sale he was described as “(one) of the most impressive and, indeed, memorable sitting Liberty dollars that we have never had the privilege of offering at auction. ” Since then, there has been no increase in the number to the highest level of retention for that date. Another coin was certified MS67 by NGC, while PCGS rated only one coin (11/21). In 1998, Dawson recorded dozens of coins with his name on the genealogical line of the envelope. However, it has been years since we saw another coin with her name in the pedigree, leading us to believe that most have been improved or crossed, leaving very few pieces directly attributable to her collection.

$ 1,797 1 10x6 stars, large letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, MS63 NGC
1797 $ 1 10 × 6 stars, large letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, MS63 NGC. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

A $ 1,797 1 10 × 6 Stars, Large Letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, MS63 NGC.Die State III is one of the best two or three specimens known for the coin, which is usually found in XF or lower grades. This coin is in striking comparison to the typical eagle bust small dollar and would make a wonderful addition to a character set or date set. It is an excellent example of both the variety and the Small Eagle type, which was minted only from 1795 to 1798.

Only four surviving original Confederate half dollars survive, and they are beyond the reach of anyone except the wealthiest collectors.

Scott bought 500 dated 1861. halves, planed the reverse sides and struck them with the original Confederate thimble.

Selection offered includes items used during parts shortage

As the song goes, “Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a beautiful Hawaiian Christmas day…” Collectors will certainly be in celebration when the Big Island Collection of Hawaiian Coins and Tokens crosses the auction block at Heritage auctions ” US Coins Signature Event December 16-19, just in time for the holidays.

The aptly named Big Island collection includes 15 lots for sale in the state known as a tropical vacation getaway, but also one with significant numismatic history.

“The Big Island collection tells the story of that of Hawaii monetary history, including tokens that circulated during a coin shortage ”, Senior Vice President of Heritage Auctions Sarah miller noted. “This collection also includes a fine example of what could have been with the fascinating Reginald Huth motif.”

The highlights of the Big Island collection include, but are not limited to:

An 1881 5C Hawaii Five Cents MS65 PCGS Medcalf-2CN-1, KM-2 can be identified as one of the original 1881 strikes minted in Paris on behalf of the owner of a nickel mine in New Caledonia, who offered to produce nickels for the Hawaiian Islands. The inscription on the obverse identifies the king Kalakaua like the “King of the Sandwich Islands”, a foreign name for Hawaii. The design on the reverse had a spelling error in the Hawaiian currency, leading to believe that the combination of errors was enough for King Kalakaua to reject the currency proposal.

An 1847 1C Hawaii Cent MS65 Brown PCGS. CAC. Medcalf 2CC-1, cross 4 dated. This is the second of the five rarest varieties for the 1847 cents, which was the first official currency of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The obverse features a portrait of the king Kamehameha III. The legend includes his name followed by KA MOI (“The King”). The reverse shows the denomination HAPA HANERI (“Hundredth part”) in a wreath that includes nine berries on the left and nine berries on the right. AUPUNI HAWAII (“Kingdom of Hawaii”) is above.

Around the turn of the century, an unknown die plummet produced a number of fantastic coins in various metals inspired by the Hawaiian mint of 1883. It appears to have used the original hubs from 1883 to prepare the dies. An 1884 1 / 8D Hawaii Fantasy Strike Hub Impression 7.5g MS66 PCGS appears to be one of a set of three fantasy gold coins that have surfaced in King’s Fabulous Collection Farouk. John Dannreuther think only two sets of fantastic coins were minted in gold. Although the PCGS the holder indicates “1884” as the date of this coin, the date on the coin itself is 1883.

Besides the Big Island collection, the auction is full of superlative examples that will be the highlight of any collectible coin cabinet.

An 1863 $ 1 MS67 NGC. OC-1, Low R.3 was included when Heritage Auctions sold the Hall of Famer baseball collection Andre Dawson in 1998. In the catalog for that sale he was described as “(one) of the most impressive and, indeed, the most memorable Sitting Liberty dollars that we have ever had the privilege of offering at auction. “.

Since then, there has been no increase in the number to the highest retention level for that date. Another coin was certified MS67 by NGC, while PCGS rated only one coin (11/21). In 1998, Dawson recorded dozens of coins with his name on the genealogical line of the envelope. However, it has been years since we have seen another piece with her name in the pedigree, leading us to believe that most have been improved or crossed, leaving very few pieces directly attributable to her collection.

A $ 1,797 1 10 × 6 Stars, Large Letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, MS63 NGC.Die State III is one of the best two or three specimens known for the coin, which is usually found in XF or lower grades. This piece is in striking comparison with the typical Small Dollar Eagle Bust and would make a wonderful addition to a type set or a date set. It is an excellent example of both the variety and the Small Eagle type, which was minted only from 1795 to 1798.

Year 1879 $ 4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1635, Pollock-1833, JD-1, R.3, PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC supports the theory that many coin collectors are looking for what has been collected in the past. This is the case with the 1879 Stella Floating Hair. These four dollar gold designs have long been included in sets alongside regular issue coins, and the tradition continues. In fact, the Stella is the only boss issue with its own section in the annual magazine. Guide Book, between the three dollar gold room and the $ 5 gold half eagle, each of which, unlike the Stella, actually circulated.

An 1831 10C PR66 PCGS. JR-2, R.7 as proof is a rarity because Bust Capped Dimes are rarely found in Proof format. In 1997, David Akers estimated six to eight 1831 JR-2 proof ten cents. PCGS estimates 15 to 20,1831 proofs, for all varieties, although the actual figure is probably lower.

Only four original surviving Confederate half dollars survive, and they are out of reach for everyone except the wealthiest collectors. But the Scott raises, including an 1861 50C Scott CSA Restrike, Breen-8002, Bertram-B861-267, MS64 PCGS. CAC., Are within the reach of many more collectors. Leading dealer in New York Jw scott purchased the original Confederate die in 1879 from Ebenezer Locke Mason, Jr., who in turn got it from BF Turner, chief coin acceptor at New Orleans Mint when the originals were minted in 1861. Scott procured 500 halves dated 1861, planed the reverse sides and struck them with the original Confederate hallmark.

“Type collectors and early American history buffs will find something to be excited about this December,” Miller said. “If you are looking for a premium dollar or sitting dollar bust for your character set, the charming 1863 NGC MS67 sitting dollar from the Andre Dawson collection or the 1797 NGC MS63 small eagle bust dollar would be great additions to your collection. ”
