Spotlight Worthy New Arrivals at Christopher’s Rare Coins

We have a few spotlight worth items to highlight at Christopher’s Rare Coins this month.

Such as the 1898 Morgan Silver Dollar, in a PCGS graded holder with the grade of MS64. This particular coin is a common date and is priced under $100. What makes this coin worthy of being spotlight worthy, is its nice toning on both the obverse and the reverse. I have noticed that at some of the larger shows we have attended, that nicely toned coins are bringing a high premium and some vendors would most likely sell this coin for $125-$150. However, we have priced it at $90, so stop in and take a look before it sells.

The second coin is one of the key date Morgan Silver Dollars, it is the 1893-S. It is in a PCGS holder graded Genuine with good details due to Machine Damage. Even though this coin is damaged it is still a good coin to have in a holder signifying that it is a genuine coin. A normal coin that has not been damaged sells for about $2300 in VG and about $1800 in Good, I have priced this one at $800. Even being a damaged coin if you are needing on to fill in a hole in your book without spending an arm and possibly 2 legs to get this date it would be a great hole filler.

The next coin or rather coins are the highly common Zinc Coated Steel Cents. This is a complete P, D, and S set graded by PCGS all 3 coins are MS66. This set costs close to $150.

The next item is a personal favorite of mine mainly due to the art work involved, it is an 1875 series $1 Legal Tender note. This note has been graded by PCGS, yes they do currency as well, it is a Choice New 63 (in coin speak it is an MS63). I like this note because you don’t see this kind of attention to detail anymore in the current currency, it has nice color and the fibers on the back side stick out so much that it looks like someone scribbled all over it. If you are a currency collector you know what I am talking about, if you are not a currency collector then you should stop in and take a look at this note, but beware it may turn you into a currency collector. This note is priced at $940.

The last piece is a National Bank Note from The First National Bank of Davenport, IA, Charter # 15. This note has been graded by PMG as a Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ, the EPQ stands for “Exceptional Paper Quality”. It is a 1929 series, which is the start of the small size notes, with a low serial number of 424. Overall this is a really nice and clean note that can be your for only $320.
