Greetings and happy
"after labor day" from US Rare Coin Investments.
We have a great selection of new coins for you to
choose from this week, several of which are from new
customers. Some of these offerings are great rarities
such as the 1866-S No Motto Double Eagle in About
Uncirculated, as well as tied top of condition census
rarities such as the beautiful 1907-S Double Eagle
in MS-65, both of which are shown below. There’s
also a great new High Relief in MS-64, and a short
run of slightly better date St Gaudens in Gem MS-65,
all in PCGS holders, most of which are on the website
but we’re including an image of a 1916-S shown
With gold trading
above $700.00 an ounce and oil now tipping the scales
at $80.00 a barrel, not to mention the continuing
and long from over debacle in the sub prime mortgage
market and real estate market in general, there have
been many new faces at coin shows as well as calling
and contacting us to buy coins as perhaps one of the
last bastions of financial instruments which show
promise in the days , months and maybe even years
ahead. This increased demand is being felt throughout
the coin business.
The coins shown below
are a few of this weeks highlights. Please take a
look at some of the new coins added to the website
and bear in mind we do not only sell coins but we
are among the top buyers of better coins in the business
and not only do we pay fair and fast, we can also
help you coordinate orderly liquidations thru auction.
Oh and regarding auctions, we are in the midst of
writing an update on the current state of the coin
auction business which will appear soon. We will start
exploring what appears to be a looming implosion in
one of the oldest companies as well why selling at
auction may not be in your best interests, depending
on the type of coins you have for sale. In any event,
this article will be a doozie!
Please contact us
with your orders, coins for sale and any questions
you may have.
$20 No Motto AU50 NGC
The last of the Type
One double eagle issues, the 1866-S No Motto was struck
early in the year prior to the arrival from Philadelphia
of the new reverse dies featuring IN GOD WE TRUST
added. The exact mintage of this rare coin is unknown,
with estimates ranging from 12,000 pieces (the current
Guide Book estimate) to an unrealistically high figure
of 120,000 coins. It can be a formidable challenge
to find a high grade about uncirculated specimen.
Representatives in AU and finer grades are among the
elite survivors of this date. The specimen shown here,
has minimal abrasions, it retains a generous amount
of luster and appears nicer than the last few we have
seen for sale which were encapsulated at the same
grade. This rarity is priced to sell quickly. If
you would like to see an image of this Type I rarity
please contact us immediately.

$20. Liberty MS-63 NGC - $2,350.00
Lovely and premium
quality for this scarce San Francisco minted double
eagle, the last date minted in the series. In demand
by collectors and investors this date has particular
demand from investors who build last year and first
year sets of coins.
$20. Liberty MS-65 NGC - $24,900.00
An incredible Gem
of a 1907-S Double eagle, this specimen screams "top
quality"! In an older NGC holder, the specimen shown
has an absolute minimum of imperfections while displaying
fully defined devices and almost mark free fields
which is highly unusual for coins in this series and
of this date. Census shows only 11 coins graded as
MS-65's and NONE graded higher. Surely there are duplicates
within the 11 that are grades making this a truly
rare coin in the finest of condition.
$20 High Relief, Wire Rim MS64 PCGS - $31,500.00
A sharply detailed
Select Mint State example of the ever-popular MCMVII
High Relief double eagle, this piece is fully brilliant
with booming luster. The High Relief double eagle
ranks as the most beautiful American coin ever produced,
in the opinion of most collectors and numismatists.
The artistry and talent of Augustus Saint-Gaudens
created a coin design that may never be equaled again.
$20. St Gaudens, MS-65 PCGS - $2,175.00
Gem St Gaudens in
MS-65! These slightly better dates like the 1922,
and others are truly undervalued in our opinion and
we are trying in earnest to buy as many nice and exceptional
for the grade coins in MS-65 and higher as we can
find. These coins get our top recommendations for
investors who want to own gold coins mixed with scarcity
of a good ol American Double Eagle in top condition.
Check our website for more and remember we DO have
others that are not yet on the website so call or

coins or more. Call!
