Highlights of the U.S. Coins CCO Auction

Lot 97205 : 1916-D Mercury Dime. VG-10 (PCGS).

If you can afford a VG-8, you should stretch for a VG-10 and if you can afford a F-12, you should stretch for a F-15. These two grade pairs have overlap in prices realized, when one analyzes the data. What does this VG-10 have going for it? Defined rims, separation between the lettering and the rim, and most of the vertical lines on the fasces. We are not a fan of the rim damage at 9 o’clock. If this 10 is bringing low 8 money, it might be a value buy for the right collector.

Lot 97261 : 1910-S Barber Half Dollar. MS-66 (PCGS).

Superb Gem Barber half dollars are typically beyond the reach of most collectors, which makes this flashy coin an attractive option for collectors pursuing a Brilliant Gem Mint Set. The 1910-S is middle of the road in terms of scarcity, so this particular date may be over-the-top for a Type Set collector.

1899 Morgan Dollar NGC MS66+ CAC. Image: Stack's Bowers.

Lot 97476 : 1899 Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-66+ (NGC). CAC.

This is a coin that we expect Greg Reynolds to write about in his monthly CAC Prices Realized column. The coin is a brilliant near superb gem 1899 Morgan dollar graded MS66+ by NGC and CAC-approved. Pops for this date fall off after MS65, and coins in MS67 have been trading for about $10,000 each lately. This could be a perfect addition to a Morgan dollar registry set.
