Incl. Fresh Rattler 1799 $5 Gold PCGS MS-63 CAC, 1908-S $20 Saint-Gaudens PCGS MS-66+ CAC
Welcome to this week's Top Ten List from GreatCollections.
This is another week where it's almost impossible to select just 10 highlights, but we've had to pare it down in order to comply with the name of this list.
Jumping direct to the #1 slot...it's a very nice 1799 Gold Half Eagle, graded PCGS MS-63 in an original Rattler holder (and CAC approved). This was purchased by the first time GC consignor in the 1980s raw, and he arranged for it to be graded at PCGS in the late 1980s. It's great to see coins like this reappear on the market.
Aside from the 1799 $5 Rattler, we have a superb 1908-S Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle graded PCGS MS-66+ CAC that has pristine surfaces and would be a great addition to any advanced Saint-Gaudens collection. There's also an uncirculated Double Eagle minted at the Carson City Mint, and a first year of issue Morgan Dollar Proof approved by CAC.
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.
We have a few big announcements to make over the next week. Stay tuned.
