This Week's GC Top Ten List - Bidding Ends Sunday, July 18th, 2021

Ian Russell on Sun, Jul 11, 2021 08:04:07 PM

Incl. Famous U.S. Issues: $4 Stella, 1895 Morgan, 1907 High Relief...

Welcome to this week's Top Ten List from GreatCollections.


Aside from several famous issues like a $4 Stella, 1895 Proof Morgan and 1907 Saint-Gaudens High Relief, the Top Ten List also includes what we consider a very scarce 1976 Gold Bicentennial Medal minted by the U.S. Mint, and rarely seen 1915 Indian Gold Quarter Eagle with CAC approval.  


Andy & Isabella were both at the FUN show last week, and this week they will be attending the PCGS Members Only Show in Las Vegas.


Although, these ten auctions might be perfect for what you're looking for, please be aware that this is only a tiny percentage of the whole auction.  Each week, GreatCollections auctions over 3,000 certified coins and banknotes!  So, if you don't see anything of interest below, be sure to browse our categories or view all upcoming auctions.


Happy collecting!

Number 10:

Fiji 2020 Colorized Silver Dollar Coca-Cola Bottle Cap China Edition With Case of Issue NGC Proof-70 UC

Fiji has produced several officially licensed Coca-Cola issues, which are popular all over the world.

Sold for $175.50  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (29 Bids)


Number 9:

1976 U.S. Mint Medal Bicentennial in Gold by Frank Gasparro Large Format 76mm SWO-521Aa #231 466.03 grams PCGS Proof-68 DCAM (AGW = 13.46 Oz.)

An impressive piece, minted by the U.S. Mint. Aside from the very low mintage, many were likely melted over the years. They rarely appear on the market and this example is the only graded as Proof DCAM at PCGS/NGC, and even if you count the few DMPLs graded at NGC, this is the finest by two grading points.

Sold for $41,119.88  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (54 Bids)


Number 8:

1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar O-123a NGC Good Details

This is an extremely rare Overton variety, with less than 10 examples known (most are "details graded"). It is omitted from many major collections.

Sold for $3,600.00  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (33 Bids)


Number 7:

1889 Seated Liberty Half Dollar PCGS MS-65 CAC (Toned)

We've been a fan of Seated material (Proof and Business Strikes) for a while now; we consider the whole series undervalued compared to the rest of the market. This particular coin is attractively toned with CAC approval.

Sold for $4,624.88  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (35 Bids)


Number 6:

1915 Indian Gold Quarter Eagle PCGS Proof-67 CAC

This is the key Proof issue from the series with CAC approval (only 7 approved in all grades), they rarely appear in auction.

Sold for $82,687.50  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (38 Bids)


Number 5:

1895 Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS Proof-64 OGH (1st Gen) (Toned)

The King of Morgan Dollars, still in the original Rattler holder from the early days of PCGS.

Sold for $59,428.12  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (64 Bids)


Number 4:

1860 Three-Dollar Gold Piece PCGS Proof-64 CAMEO CAC

Proof $3 pieces are always rare and valuable, this example was minted just prior to the Civil War, and is superb and original. CAC approved.

Sold for $43,312.50  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (41 Bids)


Number 3:

1855 Seated Liberty Half Dollar Arrows NGC Proof-66 CAMEO

This is the finest known of the minuscule mintage of just 12.

Sold for $38,250.00  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (82 Bids)


Number 2:

1907 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle MCMVII. High Relief, Wire Edge PCGS MS-65

Saint-Gaudens High Reliefs are always popular - considered by many to be the most beautiful coin design in history.

Sold for $36,000.00  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (44 Bids)


And Number 1:

1879 Four-Dollar Gold Piece Flowing Hair Stella PCGS Proof-62

Although 425 were minted, not all have survived over the past 130 years.

Sold for $123,750.00  (incl. Buyer's Fee)  (80 Bids)
