NUMISMATIC AUCTIONS LLC SALE 65 CATALOG READY

NA Sale 65 cover

The catalog for the Numismatic Auctions LLC sale 65 is online and available for viewing or download. The sale will be held November 23-24, 2020. Here are some lots that caught my eye - see the catalog and the earlier article for highlights. -Editor

Lot 3: North West Company Token
North West Company Token, 1820. Brass. Breen-1083. PCGS Genuine, VF details, Environmental Damage and holed. Only a handful of these exist unholed or unimpaired. Red Book listed and always in demand, a legendary numismatic relic of the fur trade, the Hudson Bay Company and Native American commerce. Rare.

Great, historic piece. -Editor

Lot 20: 1841 Proof Half Cent

NA sale 65 Lot 20 1841 PCGS PR64BN CAC Half Cent Original Striking

Extraordinarily Choice 1841 Proof Half Cent Rarity. 1841 Braided Hair Original Proof PCGS Gold Shield PR64BN CAC. Exquisite glass-like mirrored fields with stunning iridescent steel to teal blue toning. Prohibitively rare with a reported mintage of only 24 pieces, with the few surviving examples nowhere near this superb state of preservation. An investment quality rarity for the advanced US collector or copper specialist, well deserving of its CAC designation

See Bill Eckberg's cover article on this month's Numismatist. The Half Cents are a great series to collect. -Editor

Lot 193: 1795 Half Dime

NA sale 65 Lot 193 1795 Half Dime NGC MS65

Magnificent Original Mint State Silver Half Dime. 1795. Flowing Hair. LM-8. NGC MS65 with lovely blue-green to golden-gunmetal toning. A beautiful and fully original Mint State Gem of this rare Federal Period Silver minor coinage type, certainly CAC worthy based upon originality alone.

Wow - a great early type coin. -Editor

Lot 926: 1901-S $5 gold

NA sale 65 Lot 926 1901-S Half Eagle NGC MS64

5 Dollars, 1901-S. NGC MS64, nice cartwheel luster with splashes of pale violet.

Nice coin. I'm not above being drawn to nice shiny stuff. -Editor

Lot 1116: Hawaii Hobron Token

NA sale 65 Lot 1116 Hawaii Hobron Token EF

12 ½ Cents Thomas H. Hobron Token, 1879. Handsome brown EF and quite pleasing. Very scarce.

Hawaii tokens are scarce but there are few known types and varieties, so it's a doable state set to put together. -Editor

Lot 1329: 1891 $2 Bill

NA sale 65 Lot 1329 2 Dollar Silver Certificate Series 1891 VF25 PMG

$2, 1891. Fr. 245. PMG VF25 minor repairs noted, expertly executed and very well-concealed.

A seldom-seen (at least by me) type note. I like how the denomination "2" in the lower right corner is tilted at a jaunty angle, along with the undulating curves of the phrase "United States Silver Dollars". -Editor

Lot 1350: 1900 $10,000 Bill

NA sale 65 Lot 1350 10 Thousand Dollar Gold Certificate Uncancelled EF

$10,000, 1900. Fr. 1225h. A seldom offered signature pairing with the added bonus of the note being Uncancelled. Appearance of aEF to EF, cpl singed corners from the legendary DC fire provide both credibility and presence to the note, overall nice with transfer endorsement verso. An always popular and impressive high denom issue as well as an affordable trophy note. Housed in an oversized Capital Plastics display holder.

If you can't afford a Warhol "Red Shot Marilyn", the burnt $10,000 bill is an equally storied collectible. -Editor

Lot 1455: Potty Dollar and Potty Dime

NA sale 65 Lot 1456 Potty Dollar and Potty Dime Pair Toned Original VG and Fine-VF

1877 “Potty Dollar” engraved in slightly finer style than the preceding example on a chamber pot resembling a coffee cup with ribbon above. Host coin full rim Good-VG and toned, cpl old marks. Always sought after, accompanied by a seldom seen “Potty Dime”, 1891, toned Fine/VF. 2 coins. ($250-300)

I've seen potty dollars, but wasn't familiar with the potty dime. Neat pair. -Editor

Lot 1487: Thomas Elder 1927 Gold Token

NA sale 65 Lot 1487 Lincoln Gold Token DeLorey-48 Unc

Lincoln Gold Token, 1927. AV, 15mm. As DeLorey-48. Unc, with auction ticket from the Litman, Sullivan & Dreyfuss Collection Sale at Presidential. ($200-300)

Lot 1503: Pedley-Ryan Dollar

NA sale 65 Lot 1503 Pedley-Ryan  2933 Type VII HK-828 Rarity-7 PCGS MS64 (1)

Pedley-Ryan Dollar, 1933. Type VII. HK-828. PCGS Gold Shield MS64. A handsome example of this R7 rarity at the very top of the condition spectrum available. ($3500-4000)

Nice example of a great rarity. -Editor
