Description

HALF DOLLAR, 1915-S, NGC MS 65

A deeply toned example of blue-grey and gold. The head of Liberty a little soft, some minor marks, few of which are visible without magnification. A lovely example. Certificate number: 501967-001 (NGC 4 holder). (02-18)

GOLD DOLLAR, 1915-S, NGC MS 65 CAC

A beautifully struck example, with great eye-appeal, a small mark on the worker’s cap and another on one of the dolphins is visible under magnification. Certificate number: 501967-002 (NGC 4 holder). (02-18)

QUARTER EAGLE, 1915-S, NGC MS 65 CAC

A lovely rich and original example, with the engraver’s die polish swirls evident. The few light surface marks do not distract. Certificate number: 501967-003 (NGC 4 holder). (02-18)

FIFTY DOLLARS, ROUND, 1915-S, NGC MS 64 CAC

A splendid example. Fully struck, with evidence of the engraver’s die lines still fresh. To the naked eye, almost without a flaw, but under magnification there are a couple of minuscule marks on Minerva’s helmet near the wreath, and on the reverse a minor line or two on the eagle’s chest. With eye appeal that exceeds its numerical grade. Certificate number: 501967-004 (NGC 4 holder). (02-18)

FIFTY DOLLARS, OCTAGONAL, 1915-S, NGC MS 64 CAC

A perfect mate to the round fifty. An excellent strike with die polish lines in full evidence. There is a similar minuscule abrasion on Minerva’s helmet near the wreath, and on the reverse a few scuffs in the field to either side of the owl. An attractive, fully original example. Certificate number: 501967-005 (NGC 4 holder). (02-18)

Together with the original tooled leather case and the original explanatory card. A few minor losses, but a far above average box. The set as a whole is extremely well balanced, fully original, and with lovely toning.
