Large Bronze Lincoln Plaque on Hardwood by Charles Calverley

Large Bronze Lincoln Plaque on Hardwood by Charles Calverley

Charles Calverley (1833-1914) began work as an apprentice stone cutter in Albany, NY, but his exemplary work earned him early recognition and his career progressed rapidly to the point that he was able to open his own studio in New York City in 1869. Calverley’s work appears in many art museums and his bust of Senator Lafayette Foster is on permanent display at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.

This large and heavy plaque is firmly attached to a wooden backing board by two screws. The overall dimensions are approximately 15 x 16 inches with the central bronze artwork approximately 10-1/2 inches across. Near the bottom it is signed “C. CALVERLEY 1898” with a notation under that stating it was produced by the Henry-Bonnard Bronze Co. Founders, New York in 1900.

1839-O Reeded Edge Half Dollar PCGS MS65

1839-O Reeded Edge Half Dollar PCGS MS65

The 1839-O Reeded Edge half dollar might be considered one of the quintessential “cool” coins of American numismatics. It is the first regular issue branch mint half dollar in United States history; prominently sports a terrific, large “O” mintmark just above the date on the obverse; was issued from a now defunct, Southern mint; has a relatively low initial mintage and a sparse number of extant pieces; and has an avid collector following. General awareness within the numismatic community of the attractive characteristics for this coin has grown in recent years, since the publication of the presently definitive work on the Reeded Edge half dollar series. It is one thing to find a low grade problem coin, but to find any 1839-O Reeded Edge half dollar with substantial meat and attractive surfaces is a mighty tall order. Indeed, anything from VF or above with original and attractive surfaces rarely comes to market, and when these pieces do surface, they tend to disappear quickly into strong hands.

Here is an opportunity to acquire one of the finest 1839-O Reeded Edge half dollars that one is ever likely to see. At first glance the surfaces appear nearly white, but a closer inspection reveals a light lilac blush throughout most of the coin with stronger lime and gold hints near the rims. The patina is thick and wonderful, the diagnostic die cracks that connect the obverse stars and invade the reverse design are easily visible and the re-cut “O” mintmark is obvious. The coin is even replete with three carbon marks, which could be used as pedigree marks, on the reverse. This is not an issue found in a high level of preservation with any frequency and to find an extant gem is enough of a reason to build a one-coin collection, if needed.

1913 Buffalo Nickel Type I PCGS MS67+ (CAC)

1913 Buffalo Nickel Type I PCGS MS67+ (CAC)

The Buffalo nickel, along with the Walking Liberty half dollar, is likely the quintessential American design. The obverse portrait is a composite of several contemporary Native American chiefs while the reverse has the famous portrayal of Black Diamond. James Earle Fraser intentionally left textured surfaces on this coin as part of the artistic aesthetic of the day, which resulted in coins that appear to have a matte finish with underlying luster instead of blinding flash. The example offered here has wonderful, icy blue toning throughout with a hint of lemon on the rims. As expected from the assigned grade, hits are at a minimum, the strike is good and the eye appeal outstanding. The Type I Buffalo nickel is rather common, but someone who appreciates extreme beauty may be quite happy with this example in either a traditional type set or a first-year type set.

1936 Walking Liberty Half Dollar PCGS PR66 (CAC)

1936 Walking Liberty Half Dollar PCGS PR66 (CAC)

Many strongly believe that proof Walking Liberty half dollars are among the most attractive coins that the United States Mint has ever produced. These coins carry the iconic Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman, which itself is reminiscent of Oscar Roty’s Le Semeuse (The Sower) that strode across the coins of France during the same time period. However, no reverse design of The Sower could match the large and powerful eagle that adorns Weinman’s work, complete with seemingly impossibly complex plumage.

Walking Liberty half dollar proofs were only issued from 1936-1942 with the earliest issues being far tougher to find in gem levels of preservation. Only 3,901 coins were issued and aside from the difficulty in finding gems, finding those coins with original surfaces is even tougher. This particular example has wonderful splashes of toning around the rims that are consistent with long term storage in the original mint packaging material. It is amazing that a coin in a series this popular, which looks this attractive and with this low an original mintage to go along with its conditional scarcity could be obtained in today’s market at these levels. Perhaps the greatest trick to obtaining a coin such as this is the opportunity to purchase it, rather than the price level.

1879 Seated Liberty Quarter PCGS MS68+ (CAC)

1879 Seated Liberty Quarter PCGS MS68+ (CAC)

The Seated Liberty denominations can be a bear for type set collectors and are definitely among the most difficult for the date/mintmark collectors. Taking the quarters by themselves, there are six varieties or sub-types generally recognized for inclusion into a type set, which include No Drapery, No Motto, Arrows & Rays, Arrows No Motto, With Motto as well as Arrows With Motto. Those collectors who buy gem or near-gem coinage typically do not obtain each of these varieties and instead will concentrate on one or two superb examples of the type. This coin would satisfy nearly anyone wanting to obtain a super-gem for type purposes.

The With Motto coinage is the most easily obtained in high grade, but even in this variety there are gradations to the definition of “easily obtained”. The great majority of the latter date issues, starting with 1879 and continuing through the end of the series, were produced in such strikingly low quantities that there basal price levels are quite high. The coin offered here is from that latter production period and had an original mintage of only 13,600 pieces. Both obverse and reverse are awash in a rich blend of blue and violet that start as swirls of deep navy around the rims and gradually change to violet in the center. The coin is very clean of marks, as would be expected at the MS68+ grade level, and the strike is quite strong throughout including the eagle’s talons and wing tips, Ms. Liberty’s hair and fingers and along the rims of both obverse and reverse shields. This coin glows when rotated in the light and has superb “curb appeal” as well as superb eye appeal under a loupe. This could be a one-coin collection, the highlight of a complete type set or the cornerstone to a fabulous Seated Liberty type set.
