|1915-S Panama-Pacific Exposition $50, Octagonal NGC MS-64 CAC|
A superb CAC example of this classic U.S. issue from 1915. Minted in San Francisco, the Octagonal Slug was issued to commemorate the Panama Pacific Exposition. The coin is well struck with some original gold luster present. Only 645 coins were minted of this issue in the Octagonal format, with less suriving over the past 95 years. The high face value, the even higher issue price and the limited availability has ensured an aura surrounding the $50 pieces from the set. To put things in perspective in 1915: a new car cost $390 and a new house just $3,395. The price of gold was fixed at $20.67 an ounce, and the Boston Red Sox won the World Series.

|1842-O Liberty Gold Eagle PCGS MS-60 CAC|
This coin was originally purchased in the early 1960s for $225 at Woodward and Lothrop, a major department store in Washington, DC. The original envelope, with the dealer’s handwriting notes “only 27,000 minted” as well as the purchase price will accompany the coin. Out of the estimated survivors, this ranks as one of the finest. PCGS has graded just three examples as Mint State, and this is the lone Mint State currently approved by CAC. Aside from the phenomenal original appearance and quality, what adds interest to the coin is the pedigree back to the early 1960s, where it was purchased at Woodward and Lothrop for the then-pricey sum of $225. The coin was recently graded for the first time by PCGS. PCGS has certified just three examples as Mint State. A MS-63, a MS-61 and this MS-60. This is the only Mint State example that is currently CAC verified.
