1804 S-266b Rarest die state, this "fresh" coin was acquired from the previous owner's estate wherein it had resided for over 40 years! Attributed as AU-50, it would rank as one of the finest known and highest graded. A misaligned, EF example resides permanently in the American Nusmismatic Society Museum. The coin includes an NGC “PHOTO PROOF” and pedigrees can be furnished. This rarity die state was missing altogether from the fabulous world class collections of T. Harrison Garrett, Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., and R. Henry Norweb, Jr. The Robinson S. Brown, Jr. collection included a dented, "finely porous," VG-8 example with "corrosion." Walter Husak's magnificent early Large cent numismatic holdings, which sold at a Heritage Auction on February 15, 2008, brought an astronomical $10.7 million, contained only a VF-20 graded example of the S-266b. The first auction segment of renowned Ohio large cent aficionado Dan Holmes' collection brought a record shattering $15,082,577.75 and only offered up a S-266b in F-15. Color photographs provided for serious inquirers. Price is open for negotiation to all interested individuals. Legitimate offers will be considered.

1969-S DDO-1 FS-028 PCGS "GENUINE." Obverse was used as the “Plate Photo” seen on page 88 of the 1985 “Red Book.” This coin is pedigreed and was one of the earlier discoveries of this rarity which was originally confiscated by the U.S. Treasury Department. Erroneously deemed at that time as a "Counterfeit Doubled Die," the Treasury Department promptly effaced it's obverse and when it was later confirmed to be "GENUINE," the coin was returned to it's owner. Unfortunately, the scratches exclude this extreme rarity from being numerically graded by the premier grading service. Generous amounts of original red highlight both sides of this "Key" Doubled Die which would grade AU-58 RB otherwise. Check price listing for EXTREMELY FINE grade in current Cherrypickers' Guide! $ 35,000.00

1992-D Type 1 Reverse Close "AM" in "AMERICA Initially discovered by Mr. Colin Kusch in December of 2001. Obverse a tad subdued, yet brilliant red in coloration, with blazing red reverse. The obverse is void of any carbon spots or contact marks with a lone pinpoint sized carbon speck on reverse to the left of the "O" in "ONE" near rim at 8:00 o'clock which doesn't really detract from the coin's eye appeal. A few very light, microscopic marks below steps of the Memorial, cannot be seen without magnification. Extremely rare and elusive, possibly 15-20 examples known! ANACS MS-63 RD $ 15,950.00
