China Year 3 (1911) Silver Large Tailed Dragon Dollar Pattern L&M-33 NGC Proof-65 (Toned)
K-226; KM-Pn309. Exceedingly rare being one of the only Flying Dragon Dollar patterns not to have been presented at auction in the last ten years. Very similar in appearance to the adopted design but featuring a much bushier full tail end. Incredibly well preserved with full envelope toning over each side belying its untouched state. One of only two examples to be given a proof designation, the finest certified example overall by a full two points and likely one of the finest extant. Deep royal blue hues are present along the rim on each side contrasted nicely with golden yellow and orange highlights around the devices. A fresh and unfettered example of one of the rarest late Qing pieces to come to the open market in quite some time. From the Cherrywood Collection.

K-223b; KM-Pn305; WS-0040. An extremely rare and important member of the Flying Dragon Dollar pattern series. Missing from many major collections and with only seven pieces having been graded. The finest certified specimen example at NGC. Old envelope toning throughout showing deep toning over much of the obverse with a lighter sheen on the reverse. Both sides showing strong underlying luster and orange and blue highlights in the protected areas in the devices. A coin sure to take a place of prominence in the collection it enters. From the Cherrywood Collection.

1915-S Panama-Pacific Exposition $50 Gold, 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.

China 1994 G1000Y Gold Lunar Series - Dog #79 NGC Proof-69 UC (AGW = 11.9878 oz.)
Fr-B64; KM-650. An exceedingly rare modern Chinese rarity with a total mintage of only 99 pieces (and more than likely a much smaller number exists today). The lunar animal design is based on a mid eighteenth century painting of a Tibetan Mastiff by Giuseppe Castiglione from his Ten Prized Dogs series. Only a scant six examples of this type have been certified by NGC and PCGS with this piece being tied with two others as the finest certified. A seldom offered rarity which has only appeared at auction a few times in the past decade.
