1760 Voce Populi Half Penny Error Variety Reverse of 1760 Voce Populi Half Penny Error Variety

1760 Voce Populi Half Penny.
No "P", "VOOE" obverse, W-13930, Zelinka 7-E.
Smooth glossy brown surfaces.  An excellent example of this popular error variety, caused by a large crack closing the "C" in "VOCE".



1783 George Washington Unity States Copper Penny Reverse of George Washington Unity States Copper Penny

"1783" George Washington "Unity States" Copper Cent.
NGC EF 40 BN.  Pleasing medium brown, problem-free surfaces on this nice Washington piece, which was produced sometime in the first half of the 19th century.  As is typical for this issue, the piece shows planchet striations, but they are not distracting, and the coin shows only slight signs of actual wear.  Also characteristic is the weak strike, which was probably an evasion tactic on the part of the manufacturer, similar to the "Blacksmith" coppers.



1838 Large Cent.
N-12.  PCGS AU 55.
Georgeous glossy brown surfaces, strong details, nice eye appeal, and an excellent type coin



1877 Indian Cent.
Nice, even medium brown surfaces, with an especially strong reverse.  Toning spot at 11:30 obverse, mentioned for the sake of accuracy, but a very pleasing '77 Indian, the "key" to the Indian Cent series



1878 Proof Three-Cent Nickel.
PCGS PR65 (CAC).  A gorgeous example, as confirmed by the CAC approval.  Wonderful, deep golden coloration and mirror-like fields.
A rare proof-only year, with a miniscule mintage of 2,350 pieces.




1801 Draped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS VG 10.  O-102, High R.4.  From an original mintage of only 30,289 coins, this problem-free circulated coin is solid for the grade.  Medium grey original surfaces, light hints of rose coloration.  The O-102 is the slightly scarcer of the two 1801 varieties, with diagnostic "A" of "AMERICA" embedded in the eagle's wings.



1806 Draped Bust Half Dollar, pointed 6, stem through claw.
PCGS VF 20. 
O-114a, R.4.  Some weakness in the strike, typical of this variety.  Fully original surfaces and good eye appeal.  Nicer than the photo suggests.  The unmistakable diagnostic die failures bisect the reverse and run from just below the tip of the left wing, across the eagle's body, and from the upper right edge of the shield, across the right wing, and through the "E" of "AMERICA"




1807 Draped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS XF 40.  O-105, R.1 but exhibiting some of the obverse die cracks characteristic of an O-105a.  Heavy reverse die clash marks, most noticeable around "OF".  A good "type" coin!



1807 Capped Bust Half Dollar, Large Stars, 50 over 20.
PCGS XF 40.  O-112, R.1.  A remarkably appealing coin, well struck, and with tremendous eye appeal for the grade.  Nice original grey toning with hints of gold in the protected areas.  A superb example from this first year of Capped Bust Half production, hard to beat as a first-year type coin.



1807 Capped Bust Half Dollar, Large Stars.
PCGS VF 20.  O-114, R.3.  Slight weakness in the strike, as is characteristic of this variety.  Fully original surfaces and good eye appeal.  The diagnostic die lumps below the "7" and between the 11th star and the denticles are both evident.



1809 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
NGC VF 30.  O-111, R.2.  A pleasing and fully original-surface example.  Medium-grey surfaces with slight blue iridescence.



1817 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS VF 30.  O-110a, R.2.  Diagnostic O.110a die crack evident on the obverse.  Handsome medium-grey surfaces.



1818 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS XF 45.  O-113, R.3.  Steel-grey surfaces and fully original patina, sharp strike save for some weakness at the lower edge of the date.  Joined arrowheads on the reverse, and diagnostic die crack across the top of star 11 to the rim.



1819/8 "Large 9" Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS XF 40.  O-104, R.1.  Handsomely toned, with a fully original patina.



1821 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS VF 30.  O-107, R.3.  Handsome gunmetal-grey surfaces and original patina.  Nice!



1822 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS AU 50.  O-107, R.2.  Handsome grey surfaces and original patina with some luster remaining.  The diagnostic button at front edge of the fold in the cap visible.



1824/4 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS AU 53.  O-109, R.2.  Handsome surfaces, slightly toned at the peripheries.  Recut 4 evident, along with the raised ridge emanating upward from the eagle's right talon.



1824 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS XF 45.  O-113, R.1.  Nice original grey surfaces and original patina, good contrast!



1829/7 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
PCGS AU 50.  O-101, R.1.  Slight toning, with much luster remaining in the protected areas.  A lovely example of this popular over date variety.



1831 Capped Bust Half Dollar.
NGC MS 64.  O-107, R.3.  Spectacular cartwheel toning on the obverse, in shades of electric blue and orange.  The cartwheel bands on the reverse not as wide, but just as vivid.  Near gem, lustrous surfaces and fantastic eye appeal.  A superior coin for the grade, and hard to believe that a coin can survive 180+ years in such condition.



1832 Capped Bust Half Dollar, small letters.
O-119, R.4.  NGC VF35.  Attractive original surfaces, medium grey coloration.  Diagnostic filled stripes and recut "A" in "STATES" evident on reverse.




1856 U.S. Pattern Cent: Flying Eagle. Copper-Nickel. Judd-184, Pollock-220, R-6. NGC "Proof AU Details Improperly Cleaned." The obverse design is virtually identical to the more common 1856 Flying Eagle,  J-180,   which  is  collected  as  part  of  the  standard  Flying  set.   This variant utilizes a different reverse

  1856 US Flying Eagle Pattern Cent Reverse of US Coin 1856 Flying Eagle Pattern Cent

design (likely prepared in 1858) and features an oak wreath with arrows at the bottom and an ornamented shield above.  The reverse was also used to coin J-198/9, an 1858 Flying Eagle type pattern.  A rare coin in any grade, PCGS has certified 13 examples of the J-184, while NGC has certified 2. Some of these examples may be resubmissions.
Cleaned, as noted on the holder.  The obverse has been lightly polished and has retoning, while the reverse appears to be original surface with some signs of handling.  The rarity of this piece should offset the cleaning.  This is an exciting opportunity for the advanced Flying Eagle specialist to acquire an example of this rare pattern, which has been off the market for decades.
