Lot 1960: 1880 $4 Flowing Hair, Judd-1657, Pollock-1857, R.6, PR64 PCGS.

The 1880 Flowing Hair “stella” is one of the most famous rarities in American numismatics. Technically a pattern issue, and never authorized for regular coinage, the stella has survived and prospered as a collectible issue, and is regularly listed in A Guide Book of United States Coins alongside regular U.S. gold coin types. From the Fern E. Wagner Trust.

 

Lot 1975: 1832 Half Eagle, 13 Stars, BD-1, High R.5, MS63

The 1832 half eagle is known in only two die pairings, BD-1 and BD-2, easily distinguished by the presence of either 13 or 12 obverse stars, respectively; the 13 Stars BD-1 has a straight-base 2, and only three examples of this variety have been certified finer. From The Charleston Collection.

 

Lot 2037: 1860 $5 PR66 Cameo NGC.

Despite a stated mintage of 62 proofs, the 1860 five dollar gold is far more elusive in proof format than that figure would suggest. The elegant Cameo Premium Gem offered here, then, is one of the fortunate. It displays excellent contrast, a hallmark for the 1860 proof half eagles, and strong visual appeal.

 

Lot 2038: 1868 $5 PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS.

From the Fern E. Wagner Trust.

 

Lot 2104: 1801 Eagle, Breen-6843, Taraszka-25, BD-2, MS64 PCGS.

This is a spectacular piece of our early Federal coinage. The fields are bright with confirmed reflectivity on each side. The central design elements are fully brought up and the only area of softness is on the peripheral stars on the obverse. From The Charleston Collection.

 

Lot 2106: 1803 BD-6 Large Stars Reverse Eagle, MS62 NGC. Breen-6845, B. 1-F, Taraszka-32, R.7.

Of 33 known die varieties in the 1795 to 1804 eagle series, Harry Bass was able to obtain 32 during his many years of collecting; the only die marriage that he never owned was the 1803 BD-6 (Breen 1-F) that is offered in this lot.

 

Lot 2147: 1870-CC $10 XF40 PCGS. Variety 1-A.

 

Lot 2165: 1879-CC $10 AU53 PCGS.

From the Fern E. Wagner Trust.

 

Lot 2196: 1893 $10 PR64 Cameo NGC. Ex: Pittman.

From The Charleston Collection.
