OLD! Gold! Everyone is crazy about the yellow stuff. When gold broke past $1,000 an ounce, in 2008, it marked the first time this precious metal had surpassed that level, and some analysts predicted there was no upward end in sight. Today it has nestled in the area of $800 per ounce—down some but certainly well above what it was years ago, when it seemed locked in the $300 to $400 range. So what does the future hold? Who really knows? On any day you can find someone who is bullish on gold and someone who is bearish. If it could be easily be predicted, everyone would be rich. I was surprised recently when I read of a new fad in the chase after the precious metal—holding a gold party. You buy a kit, which comes with some basic instructions and testing equipment, and then you invite your friends to sell you their precious metals over a good glass of wine and some snacks. The problem with this is just what I mentioned. No one knows which way the market will go. And those who get into the market of buying up precious metals and trying to sell them for a quick profit are taking a real risk. This is particularly true of those who have little or no experience in dealing in precious metals. 4

So, if you decide now is the time to set aside some gold, silver or other precious metal, you would be well advised to move carefully and do so with a long-term goal in mind, not out of wish for instant wealth. Among coin collectors, the constant advice is to build a quality collection and any profit will take care of itself. There are definitely some opportunities in metals, but you have to make sure you are not only getting what you pay for, but also that you don’t get too caught up in the fever. As mentioned in this issue of Coins, there are a number of options among bullion coins from the U.S. and around the world, bars and ingots, and even circulation coins minted in precious metals. I’m partial to coins and believe, as Mike Thorne does, that modern gold commemoratives offer a chance to purchase low-mintage coins that also trade near their bullion value. To me it seems the best of both worlds. Happy collecting.

MONTHLY ACQUISITION PROGRAM WHOLESALE INVESTOR LOTS - EIGHT CATEGORIES TO CHOOSE AS LITTLE AS $47.50 GETS YOU STARTED HEADQUARTERS FOR ALL YOUR NUMISMATIC NEEDS PLEASE READ THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT:

Dear Fellow Collectors, Investors, and Dealers: For a limited time only, we are offering a large selection of quality coins & collectibles in carefully assembled wholesale lots. Unlike many similar offerings, you may select the exact category and price to fit your individual needs. All lots may be ordered on a one-time or monthly basis. When you join the monthly program, you can increase, decrease, change or cancel at any time. After your first purchase, we'll bill you in advance each month, or use your credit card to avoid billing delays. For over forty years I have been an avid coin collector and have experienced the disappointment and unpleasant surprise often encountered in purchasing so-called "grab-bag" lots. Rest assured that just as I like high grade material, I know most of you do, too. The only surprises will be pleasant or you will receive a full immediate cash refund (not a credit slip to obligate you) and a free gift for your trouble. More likely, however, you'll want to reorder as so many of our loyal customers do. I am proud of this record of customer satisfaction and cordially invite you to seriously consider our offerings. Remember, all lots are offered with a full two week return privilege, so there is no risk. We want regular happy customers so don't be surprised if additional value is added to the lots.

Catching gold (and silver) fever Some basics on gold, silver and precious-metal coins By Robert R. Van Ryzin

I

T IS the material of which gossamer dreams are made—dreams so lightly spun that they can be shattered in an instant. Its thin thread of intangible allure wraps and weaves through the length and breadth of civilization from ancient Egypt to the present. Whether panned from rich alluvial mountain streams, perilously extracted from cavernous underground mines, or simply hoarded in the form of nuggets, ingots, bars, jewelry or coins, no other precious metal can match the universal appeal of gold. Gold is what ultimately brought Columbus and countless early explorers to the New World. In the late 1840s and into the following decade, it drove entire families to desert home and livelihood; half a century later, it sent thousands scurrying to the uninhabited reaches of Alaska. Countless songs, reams of poetry and many a camp-side tall tale have sprung from pursuit of the yellow metal. On the way to the goldfields of California, miners sang its praises, proclaiming, “I’m bound for California with my washbowl on my knee” to the tune of the popular song “Oh Susanna.” Samples of California’s new El Dorado, rushed eastward by California’s interim military governor Col. Richard B. Mason, and ultimately transformed into commemorative gold $2.50s, announced the nation’s newly discovered wealth. The Hartford Daily Courant reported in its Dec. 6, 1848, issue that the attraction to the yellow metal was well out of control. The gold rush was on. Under the uniquely appropriate banner “The Gold Fever,” the Courant explained that California gold fever was approaching a crisis state and the tide was not likely to “cease its flow until either untold wealth is amassed or extended beggary is secured.” The latter was certainly more likely. “Soldiers are deserting their ranks, sailors their ships, and every body their employment, to speed to the region of the gold mine,” the Courant taunted. “In a moment, as it were, a desert country, that never deserved much notice from the 10

One of the easiest ways to invest in gold is through bullion coins. Since 1986, the U.S. Mint has been issuing American Eagle gold coins, ranging from tenthounce to one-ounce coins.

world, has become the centre of universal attraction...and all creation is going out there to fill their pockets with the greater condiment of their diseased minds.” Gold fever blanketed the nation and captured worldwide attention. Thousands would relinquish home and job to take up the arduous trek to the untamed West by means of land and sea in search of gold. Others would follow, seeing a profit to be made in the spoils of quickly erected camps and town. All totaled, the California Gold Rush brought between 28,000 and 48,000 emigrants to California in a very short time —the greatest transcontinental migration in American history. Today the 19th-century gold rushes are merely colorful memories left to the pens of authors and historians of the Old West. Stories of gold discoveries aboard sunken treasure ships still occasionally tantalize and titillate, tales of hidden or long-forgotten treasures can spark imagination, but they rarely evoke widespread mania in modern society. Still, the possibility remains, the allure of gold has not lessened. The fever exists. Look at what’s happened in the gold market recently, having been driven over

the $1,000 an ounce mark for the first time in its history, before settling back to its current $803 price tag. Silver, often seen as its companion in the world of metal investments, rests at $9.56 per ounce. It, too, has seen higher prices and frenzied rushes in the past. Fortunately, many mints around the world make it easy and safe for the average citizen to own gold, silver and other metals in a convenient form. No longer do you need to house large bars in vaults, you can easily purchase bullion coins in a variety of weights and metals, ranging from gold and silver to platinum and palladium. In 1986, the U.S. Mint released convenient silver and gold American Eagles bullion coins. The silver Eagles come in one-ounce coins with a dollar face value and carrying a popular obverse design by Adolph Weinman adapted from his 1916-1947 Walking Liberty half dollar. They sell for a premium over the day’s bullion spot price and are very popular not only with investors but also collectors. On the gold side, the U.S. Mint now produces gold American Eagles in a variety of sizes that can appeal to any budget, ranging from the smallest, a tenthounce piece, to the largest, a one-ounce coin. Like silver Eagles, gold Eagles carry an obverse design popular with collectors. This time, it’s an adaptation of Augustus Saint-Gaudens obverse from his gold $20 minted for circulation from 1907-1933. The Mint has also brought back the famous James Earle Fraser obverse and reverse from the 1913-1938 Buffalo nickel for a new one-ounce gold Bison coin that debuted in 2006. So, if you really want to get into gold and silver in an easy fashion, and especially if you want to do it an ounce or two a time, these coins make a prime choice. With outlets ranging from bullion brokers to mom and pop coin stores, they’re easy to obtain, easy to store in safe deposit boxes and give flexibility when it’s time to sell. Other attractive options include bullion coins from world mints, many which having been producing gold and silver pieces for investors for a number of years. Some of these include COINS JANUARY 2009

10/24/08 3:52:24 PM

The silver American Eagle is a one-ounce coin and has an attractive obverse, which was adapted from Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty half dollar.

The relatively recent Bison gold coins are currently available only as one-ounce pieces. They depict James Earle Fraser’s Buffalo nickel design.

If you want to move beyond gold and silver, the U.S. Mint also strikes platinum coins.

Austria, Australia, Canada, China, Great Britain, Mexico, and South Africa. Such issues often vary as to fineness, but the important point being that even if you’re buying a one-ounce bullion coin that has more alloy than another, it still contains exactly one ounce of gold. Gold is a soft metal and a bit more alloy makes it more durable, not less valuable. If you’re not concerned about your bullion being officially issued by a government, silver rounds are another option. Many manufacturers, including Sunshine Mining, U.S. Assay, A-Mark, Silvertowne, Engelhard, and Johnson Matthey sell .999-fine rounds and bars to investors in various ounce weights. Gold bars can be had in sizes ranging from 1 gram to 1 kilo. On one broker’s Web site, a 10-ounce .999.9 fine Credit Suisse gold bar was priced at $8,509.50. Another option besides buying bullion coins, which by nature do not have a big collector following, is through precious-metal coins. Many of the later U.S. gold series offer dates and mints that do run higher because of collector demand, but also benefit from a strong bullion market. These include, but are not limited to, more common dates among the Indian Head gold $2.50s and $5s of the early 20th century and many dates within the Saint-Gaudens gold $20 set. Gold $2.50s contained .12094 ounces of pure gold. Gold $5s yield .24187. Gold $10s are at .48375. And gold $20s

contain .96750. At current gold prices, the $2.50 has just over $97 in gold; the gold $5 is just above $194; the gold $10 sits at a little over $388; and the gold $20 brings nearly $777 in gold value alone. As for silver, if you don’t want to purchase it in bullion-coin form, why not consider U.S. silver coins. Keep in mind that all dimes, quarters, half dollars and dollars issued through 1964 were minted in 90 percent silver, making them worth multiple times their face value because of the high price of silver. What is even more amazing to some (but not to readers of this publication’s “Coin Finds” column), is that these coins can still be found in a limited extent in circulation but more often in searching through rolls obtained from area banks. This is especially true of Kennedy half dollars, which continued to be minted in 40 percent silver from 1965-1970 and often are found in bank holdings. Watch also for what the hobby knows as “war nickels.” Minted from 1942-1945, they contain 35 percent silver and are easily identified by a large P, D, or S mintmark on the coin’s reverse above the depiction of Monticello. At today’s silver bullion spot, a 90percent silver dime, which contains .07234 in pure silver, comes in at nearly 70 cents in bullion value. A 90-percent silver quarter, which contains .18084 in pure silver, is nearly $1.73 in bullion value. A 90-percent silver half dollar, which contains .36169 in pure silver,

brings nearly $3.46 in bullion value. And a 90-percent silver dollar, which contains .77344 in pure silver, brings nearly $7.40 in bullion value. As for the 40 percent silver halves (1965-1970), they have .1479 in pure silver, which translated at just above $1.41 in bullion value. The 35-percent silver Jefferson war nickels (1942-1945) have .05626 in pure silver, which is nearly 54 cents in melt value. Rarely has it been so profitable to learn the joys of hunting for coins in banks or old hoards. You just need to learn the basics and keep the fever under control. ❐

Silver and gold coins issued for circulation are another means of setting aside precious metals. The 90-percent silver dollar currently has $7.40 in silver bullion in it.

Anthony altered T

here was a story during the first year of production of the Anthony dollar that the design was going to be changed, be-cause of the criticism of the original. Was it changed? The design (Anthony bust) was not changed, but the position of the date and “LIBERTY” in relation to the rim was changed in mid-1979 on the Philadelphia strikes and in 1980 at all three mints. These are described as having wide or narrow rims, but the width of the rim is not a valid marker, as wide and narrow rims are found on both varieties of the date position. Is dental gold .900 fine like coin gold? Dental gold is considered to be .750 fine, and is alloyed with metals other than copper. What kind of equipment did the coiners have in the days of the screw press to make planchets? They used a hand-operated punch press, similar in design to the screw coin press, with a long arm that was swung to drive the punch down through the strip of coin metal. Prior to that the planchets were cast, or cut from the strip with metal shears. Were the 1964 proof half dollars struck before or after the regular coins? In the rush to get the new Kennedy dies in service, the first dies delivered were proof dies, and production began with them on Jan. 2, 1964. Denver began striking Kennedy halves for circulation on Jan. 30, and Philadelphia started striking the circulation halves the following week, in early February. The official ceremony marking the striking of the new coins was 14

Design criticism didn’t lead to design change

not held until Feb. 11, 1964 at Denver and Philadelphia. I have a Statue of Liberty medal dated 1965 for the American Museum of Immigration. Can you tell me what the issue price was? There was a 2 1/2-inch bronze version that sold for $4 and a 1 1/4-inch .900 silver version that was priced at $10. Both were struck at the Philadelphia Mint, with the silver limited to 5,000 pieces. Weight of the silver is not available. Is the 1877 nickel cent listed by Judd as No. 1496 really a pattern? The piece has been authenticated as being struck on a copper-nickel-zinc Venezuela centavo planchet. The U.S. Mint at Philadelphia struck 10 million of the coins for Venezuela in 1875 and 1876. The planchets were from an outside supplier— The Waterbury (CT) Mint— and weighed from 35 to 38 grains, with a diameter of 19 mm. The normal cent planchets weighed 48.0 grains, and also were 19 mm. It would be impossible to determine whether the piece was an accident or intentional, but the odds are that it was accidental. What’s the difference between a rub on a coin and die abrasion? A rub is a form of wear after the coin has been struck, from contact with any other object, including another coin. Die abrasion is a change in the surface of the die from contact wear from the planchets, or the use of some abrasive, altering the profile of the die (and coin) and leaving marks that often appear as raised lines on the struck coin. Rubs, in contrast, leave scratches into the coin’s surface.

It’s usually necessary to examine the coin with a strong magnifier to tell the difference. For the bottom line, a rub will reduce the coin’s value. Die abrasion will also usually reduce the value, although a very few die abrasion varieties do have some collector value. An 1881 proof half dollar is described as “reverse of 1876.” How does one distinguish this? There were two reverse master dies used for the halves, the Type 1 (18661877) and Type 2 (1876-1891). The former has an “open bud,” or split lower berry, on the branch above the “H.” The latter, which is what your description refers to, has a “closed bud,” or pointed normal berry. Is the 1853/4 quarter a mule? How could it have happened? It’s not a mule. The most likely sequence of events is that the engraver picked up the wrong logo punch, saw his mistake and corrected it. It’s likely it occurred near the end of the year when both logo punches were available. Until we invent a time machine to go back to that instant, or figure out how to read the mind of a person long dead, we never will know for certain.

10 top Gold and silver picks Precious-metal coins worth looking at By Mark Benvenuto

W

HENEVER the economy goes through bumps and hard times, prices of gold and silver fluctuate. That in turn means gold and silver coins will see swings in value that oftentimes confuse collectors. It is possible to do well in a volatile market, but a savvy buyer needs to follow some rules to do so. Let’s assemble a list of five gold coins that will most likely see some increase in value during these difficult times. They may be out of reach for collectors of limited means; so I will assemble a fistful of silver coins that may also do very well even as metal prices fluctuate. 1. Liberty Head gold $20s. There’s no doubt that collecting gold $20s is always a good way to get your hands on some gold. The Liberty Head series is the first design of this denomination the U.S. Mint produced, and they all weigh in at 33.436 grams of 90 percent gold (the rest being copper). The actual gold weight, if you take out the copper, is 0.9675 ounces, which makes for a hefty coin. The one aspect of the Liberty Head gold $20 that makes it the head of my fistful of gold is the availability of the common dates. You see, this series spans a very wide range of mintages. On the low end, there is one coin dated 1849. It resides in the Smithsonian, and it’s fair to say it is a priceless piece. But, on the end, where we may actually hope to purchase one or two of these beauties, we have dates like the 1904 and the 1904-S. The first has a mintage of more than 6.2 million, and the second has a total of 5.1 million to its credit. By any count, that’s a lot of gold $20s. Those two 1904s may be at the top of the gold $20 count, but there are several more within the series that come in over the 1 million or even the 2 million mark. This is good news for collectors, as there are plenty still to be had for a growing collection. Obviously, any of the common dates will be rarer in a high mint-state grade, but at grades like Mint State-60 or -62, most of the common coins within the series can be purchased for $1,300 to $1,500. And they all have some potential to rise in value. 2. Coronet gold $5s. If the price of a Liberty Head $20 gold just gave you sticker shock, move down the totem pole a bit, as it 16

Gold American Eagles began being minted in 1986. A family of eagles graces the coin’s reverse.

were, and consider one or more of the gold $5s. Minted from 1839-1908, these golden goodies also span a wide range of mintages, and also sport some dates with big totals. There were several years in the early part of this series that saw Mint production go well into the hundreds of thousands, but there wasn’t a 1 million-plus figure until 1880, when more than 3.1 million came spewing out of the Philadelphia Mint. Several dates after that sport seven-figure totals as well, with a few of those coming from the San Francisco Mint. The good news concerning this series, at least for the budget-conscious collector who is eyeing gold, is that all of the common coins are between $400 and $500 in grades such as MS-60 and -62. But the even better news is that several of the less-than-common dates have these price tags hung on them as well. This similarity of price between coins with vastly different mintages is intriguing. Why does a coin such as the 1901-S, with 3.6 million to its tally, cost $475 in MS-62, while the 1896, with only 59,063 to its credit, costs only $515 in the same grade? There’s probably several factors involved in this seeming misalignment of prices: how much gold coins were used in the East vs. the West, how many were subsequently melted, or how well struck the coins of each mint were. Even the

fact that most collectors do not put together a date and mintmark set of any gold coin should be factored in. Overall, the results are at least one coin that I think is vastly under valued when compared to the common pieces of the series. 3. One-ounce gold American Eagles. If even the gold $5s are too much money for the amount of gold you get, try instead the modern one-ounce gold American Eagle. Admittedly, the price will again rise (at least when compared to the Coronet gold $5s), but we are now again talking about a big coin and full ounce of gold. First issued in 1986, the one-ounce gold American Eagle had a mintage of 1.3 million uncirculated pieces for that year. Let’s stick to the uncirculated coins here, as opposed to the proofs, when we look at gold with the potential to rise, and to make a collector some money. By 2001, the number of uncirculated bullion one-ounce Eagles had dropped to 143,605. That’s hardly a number that makes for a rare coin, but it is far less common than its earliest sibling. But the price of either one of them in MS-65 is essentially bullion value plus some small percentage for the dealer. As of this writing, if you have $985 to put forth, you can obtain just about any of the one-ounce American Eagles from the 1986-2008 in MS-65. Only the “burnished uncirculated” coins of the past three years cost more. What this means is that you have a lot of coins with differing mintages from which to choose. Doing some hunting for dates—and having some patience in looking for the less common ones—may pay off in the long run. 4. British sovereigns. Now, if all three of the gold coins I have listed are just too expensive for you, well, you’re probably a smart and frugal collector. Try a foreign gold piece instead—the British sovereign. Price tags on sovereigns are usually considerably less than those on the U.S. gold $5s, even though the amount of gold in them is roughly the same. The reason is basically the mintages. You see, between about 1850 and 1900, the United States had set back its production of everything, precious metals included, because of the Civil War. It took a while for everyone to get back into the swing of some serious business. Great Britain, on the other hand, was pretty much at the top of its game, having conquered, bought, and in various COINS JANUARY 2009

other ways amassed the biggest empire the world had ever seen. It took money to run that empire, and that meant gold and silver coin. So, today you can find British sovereigns that were minted in such distant lands as South Africa, India, and Australia. Two hundred dollars will get you a handsome-looking sovereign. It’s up to you how much of a collection you wish to build. But it doesn’t take a big outlay to assemble a date run. As for the British sovereigns going up in value? They function as bullion coins for many traders today, so they won’t jump up quickly. But the bullion factor also means that they will go up as the precious metal swings up. Sovereigns may just turn into a good buy. 5. Gold American Eagle tenth-ounce coins. If even British sovereigns are more money than you want to spend on gold, then about the only alternative for a less expensive gold coin is the tenth-ounce American Eagle. The little sister of the American Eagles family also has a wide range of mintages over the past couple of decades, but that doesn’t yet translate into too much by way of price difference. For example, the 1999 tenth-ounce Eagle has a mintage of more than 2.7 million pieces, not counting the proofs, and one of them will cost $106 in MS-65. The 1991 is at the other end of things, with a 165,200 total, and a price tag of $130. That’s quite a trade off when you think about it. Now, the tenth-ounce Eagles are only going to rise in value as the price of gold rises. They’re bullion coins. But there’s always hope for the scarcer ones within the series.

A

S I said right at the beginning, all of these gold coins may be out of your reach. That’s not a problem. Some people stick to low-value coins. Others just don’t have the disposable cash to put into gold coins. Still others are just thrifty. Let’s see what silver pieces are available to the collector of more modest means—but also to the collector who wants to see some increase in value in his or her collection over time. 1. One-ounce silver American Eagles. We may be eagled out by the end of this, but it wouldn’t be fair to not mention this Eagle as well. Silver American Eagles have been produced since 1986, and have always had a full ounce of silver in them. There is now a rarity within the series—the 1995-W proof— but other than that, all the silver Eagles are collectible. It will probably only cost $25 to get any date in the series, in MS-65. So let’s mention briefly a relatively new phenomenon that has affected these Eagles—slabbing. It’s no big surprise that silver Eagles have been encapsulated by third-party grading 18

Some dates in the Morgan and Peace dollar serics can be obtained in uncirculated at low prices.

services, but what is a surprise is the prices some of them bring. Since these coins were never made to circulate, it’s not hard to find them slabbed as MS-69. What is hard to find is the perfect coin, meaning one slabbed at MS-70. That’s then where there are some possibilities for your silver to gain in value. If you do go this route, be patient. It’s not every day you come across the perfect coin. 2. Uncirculated Morgan or Peace dollars. These perennial collector favorites show up here simply because they are bound to rise in price as precious metals do. Each has less than an ounce of silver in them, but the sheer numbers of these coins means they will never for all practical purposes disappear from the collector scene. When it comes to specific Morgan or Peace dollars that will rise in value, the advice is perhaps obvious: stay away from the common coins and look for the sleepers. Morgan dollars were minted to such quantities that mintage totals are not particularly useful in this regard, especially when you factor in the various silver melts that have occurred over the past decades. What is perhaps wiser is to get the population reports from the third-party grading services, see which dates and mintmarks have been slabbed in the lowest numbers, then see if you can buy some of those dates in slightly lower grades. That’s a recipe for a good return should the price of gold and silver rise in the near future. 3. The Austrian Maria Theresa thaler. This is the silver bullion coin that precedes all silver bullion, and even though it may not seem to deserve a place here, there’s a reason for its presence. The restrikes of this coin have some serious potential. For those unfamiliar with the Maria Theresa thaler, it was first minted in 1780, was heavily exported, and became a trade

coin in parts of Africa and Asia. Its success was so great that more were made, still dated 1780, and eventually it was produced by other governments than that of the AustroHungarian Empire. It’s the restrikes that actually have the growth potential today. Some of these have been made to essentially proof standards, yet still cost as little as $15. When metals prices rise, it’s quite possible that these thalers with the premium strike and eye appeal will go up a bit faster than everything else around them. You won’t make millions off a single coin. But you will see some appreciation in value. 4. Proof Franklin half dollars. Franklin halves seem destined to live in the shadow of the Walking Liberty halves, and thus always to be under appreciated, if not under valued. But when it comes to proof coins, Franklins can lay claim to a first. This is the first half dollar that saw proofs minted in the millions. It was 1957 that saw a proof mintage of 1.2 million halves, and every year after saw a healthy total as well. Only 1958 dipped below the 1 million mark, and 1961-1963 saw more than 3 million proofs per year. With proof Franklins being that common, one might think this is a bad choice for a silver coin that will rise in value. On the contrary, for a smart buyer who sticks to grades such as Proof-67 and -68, there is some potential. The 1958 is a $125 coin in Proof-68 right now. It definitely has the potential to go up in value. So do several of the other proofs in high enough grades. 5. World silver bullion coins. This final choice for worthwhile silver might seem like another odd pick, in that there are plenty of world bullion coins to be had. That’s true, and that’s also where it becomes one’s buying savvy that makes all the difference. The numbers for some coins are significantly lower than for others. A great series that works as an example is the Chinese Panda. The Chinese government has been careful not to flood the market with Pandas, and as a result their prices are always a bit higher than those of other bullion coins. But they also have more potential for growth. But don’t stop with the Pandas. Look at the Canadian Maple Leafs, the silver of Australia or Austria, or even the issues from tiny places, such as the Isle of Man. Most of these series have a couple of dates with lower mintages. That translates into better potential, especially if you are buying the best examples of each coin. There we have it, two fistfuls of preciousmetal coins, all of which have some growth potential. There are undoubtedly more than what I have listed. It’s a matter of doing some research and making careful purchases. But the potential is there. The best of luck to you in assembling your own fistful of gold or silver. ❐ COINS JANUARY 2009

Paper Profiles

Civil War change notes Wide variety of emergency scrip collectible

D

uring the Civil War, a hodgepodge of small paper scrip circulated in place of government coins, which were hoarded for their metal content. Gold coins commanded a premium over face value: 3 percent in January 1862. Brokers quoted the premium at 4 3/4 percent in early February. By June this premium had doubled. It reached 15 percent by July, when the government monetized postage stamps for use as small change. By the fall gold was at plus-32 percent. Even silver coins were valued at plus-12 percent in July, and more than 20 percent over face value by the fall. Naturally if a quarter was worth more than a 25 cents in bullion, the man on the street was reticent to spend it. When small change vanished from the marketplace, merchants, corporations and cities issued small notes to facilitate trade. In the Midwest transit tickets of the Chicago City Railway Co. formed a makeshift circulation. Convenience and the reputation of the company floated this brand of scrip. For good measure, the company dealt heavily in postage stamps, which it sold illegally at a premium to those wary of its own fare coupons. The problem with small change was not confined to the northern states. In the Confederate capital, Richmond, paper was in such short supply that some of the city of Richmond shinplasters were printed on the backs of leftover, unissued bank notes.

22

22-ProfilesCM0109.indd 22

The biggest problems were in the big cities of the northeast. Boston lithographer Louis Prang advertised he could supply “Small Currency manufactured at short notice, in most elegant style at moderate prices.” A New York City competitor circulated a small change advertising note that read “Small Currency—Hatch & Co. New York Lithographers 29 William St. are prepared to execute all orders for small paper currency, corporation orders &c. in the best style of lithography.” New York printer Ferd. Mayer advertised in the city’s newspapers: “Small Currency Bills. Corporations and merchants wishing to issue small currency bills will be furnished with samples and estimates on addressing the subscribers.” Mayer & Co. issued an illustrious advertising note for this trade on the “Shinplaster Bank.” Its legend reads: “The subscribers promise to furnish on demand from Ten to a Thousand Dollars worth of Shinplasters executed in the best style & at the lowest rate at Fulton St. New York.” In many locations, such as Cincinnati, local newspapers vied with job printing shops for the trade. Presses in hundreds of different print shops unleashed scrip of uncertain value on the public. A Brooklyn lady purchased an article in Fulton street in late summer 1862, and she received the following as change for a one dollar bill: “ferry tickets, shinplaster, counterfeit penny (probably a Civil War token), car ticket,

milk ticket, butcher’s I.O.U., grocer’s I.O.U., bread ticket, three cent postage stamps, one cent postage stamp and an ice cream ticket.” We know this story is not apocryphal. It was reported as news in the Chicago Evening Journal. Many local retailers availed themselves of the kinds of scrip Mayer and the others advertised. One issuer justified his notes with Franklin’s “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” aphorism. Another claimed “Military Necessity.” Many were worthless and fell to a loss to their final holders. Highly prized are the transitional notes with government stamps affixed for value. These were circulated by at least four merchants. A Philadelphia amusement saloon, Long’s Varieties, pasted one-cent stamps on thin cardboard with the business opposite the stamp. This made the stamp somewhat durable, but destroyed any future postal value. Most notes state they are redeemable in merchandise, bank notes or “current money.” In Brooklyn, N.Y., the Merchants’ Change Association pooled resources and backed its scrip with U.S. bonds deposited at a bank. Municipalities also issued small change notes, including Newark and Jersey City in the North, and Montgomery, Ala., and Richmond in the South. All remain wonderful objects for the history buff, and with the wide variety available a prime collectible, too. COINS JANUARY 2009

Coin Tales

New resolutions T

he start of a New Year means getting ready to pay taxes and to review what happened in 2008—or at least this is the way our numismatist does it. In looking over his receipts, appointments and lots of other items, it was obvious that things could be done better. Resolutions were in order, especially in the numismatic arena. Let’s see, these would be… Don’t be an impulse buyer. Our numismatist loves the 1908-S Indian Head cent. This low-mintage cent was the first-ever cent produced at a branch mint. The coin reminds him of his youth, when Indian Head cents could still be found in circulation. This past year he had succumbed to temptation and purchased another 1908-S. A friend had laughingly asked if he was putting a roll together. He also made other impulse purchases that he really didn’t need. He would be judicious in 2009. Always have a want list available. His “extra coins” were usually the result of forgetting what he needed. Most collectors have “extras.” Sometimes extras are the result of upgrading coins in a collection. Other times collectors simply lose track of their needs, particularly in large and longrunning series such as the Lincoln cent. Our numismatist had a few coins that fit this category. The purchasing of these coins usually happened when he went out the door without his want list because he initially thought he wasn’t going to buy anything. He resolved to carry a small want list tucked away in his wallet. Keep within a budget. This was the old: “The coin costs more than my monthly budget. I’ll buy the coin now and not buy anything next month.” It’s easy to tell others to operate on a budget and keep their collecting habit within limits. As for following his own advice, our numismatist has been known to slip. Stay organized. This is a lot tougher than one might think. It involves properly 24

24-cmTalescm0109.indd 24

“As a young lad, our numismatist often heard older and more experienced collectors deride collectors of 20th-century coins such as the Buffalo nickel and Mercury dime. They favored the older Liberty Head nickels and Barber dimes.” labeling and cataloging coins vs. falling behind. Some years ago our numismatist purchased a large lot of Lincoln cents that were not organized or labeled. What was normally a fun task became an odious task as the coins lingered in paper rolls. The task could have been simpler by following the “eat the elephant philosophy” by doing it one bite at a time. Put another way, do a small amount every day. Don’t expect your heirs to organize the coins. Assess your collecting goals. Putting a collection together is fun. The question always becomes one of “been there, done that.” If you have grown tired of the collection or are interested in something else, perhaps it is time to (GASP!) dispose of your collection in favor of new pursuits. Thinking about collecting goals is always good. Become a Numismatic Ambassador. Krause Publications has the Numismatic Ambassador Award that is awarded to those folks who have an important impact on promoting and enhancing the hobby. Our numismatist resolved that he would work harder promoting the hobby through his local clubs and others. His smaller efforts, while not that of a Numismatic Ambassador, would be based on the often used environmentalist’s phrase of “think globally, act locally.”

Or, do these

New Year’s resolutions ring true with you? Study more and be open to new ideas. As a young lad, our numismatist often heard older and more experienced collectors deride collectors of 20th-century coins such as the Buffalo nickel and Mercury dime. They favored the older Liberty Head nickels and Barber dimes. Of course, we now view the Buffalo nickel and Mercury dime as classics. Our numismatist resolved to try and move into the 21st century. He would be more appreciative of those who have become enthralled with collecting modern varieties and error coins. (Note to self: Perhaps a stronger pair of reading glasses as well as a larger loupe might increase his appreciation.) Listen better. The old saying, “You learn through your ears not your mouth,” was something he needed to do more of. As an older gentleman, he assumes that people in numismatic circles always want to hear what he has to say. He suspected this might not be the case. Finally, keep the hobby in balance with all of life’s activities. Our numismatist openly admits to being a coin nut. This is OK, but not at the expense of family and friends. Our numismatist made the note to involve family and friends in the hobby vs. shutting them out or letting the hobby become too consuming. As hard as it is for him to believe, not everyone is in to coin collecting. So there you are, you know what our numismatist is going to work on in 2009. Hopefully there was some helpful advice. I’ll quickly have an opportunity to test my New Year’s resolutions. In January, I’ll be with my numismatic family of thousands at the Florida United Numismatists convention in Orlando. Who knows what interesting coins or stories I might run across—or which resolutions I might be tempted to break. COINS JANUARY 2009

Modern gold commems The new hot commodity? By Mike Thorne

A

S I WRITE THIS, the financial markets are in turmoil. The DOW fell nearly 800 points in a day, followed by a nearly 500-point recovery the next day. People worry about their retirement savings as Congress debates whether or not to pass a massive bailout bill. The price of oil rises and then falls, and the same happens with other commodities. What’s a person to do? Well, for many people the thing to do is buy gold. As a perennial hedge against inflation, gold seems particularly desirable in a time of economic panic. But what gold to buy? One problem is that there are too many choices. Should you buy strictly bullion coins, such as American Eagles, American Buffaloes, or the First Spouse coins? Or should you stick with the tried and true classical American gold coins, minted for circulation before 1933? In this article, I’m going to discuss another possibility: modern gold commemoratives. These are gold pieces minted beginning in 1984 as part of commemorative series. Most are gold $5 pieces, although there are a few $10 commemoratives.

This 1995 gold $5 commemorative honored Civil War battlefields.

26

26-cmJanuaryThorne.indd 26

Franklin D. Roosevelt, the nation’s only four-term president, appears on this 1997 gold $5.

Modern commemorative gold $5s have the same composition as their earlier counterparts and contain nearly a quarter of an ounce of gold (0.2418 oz.). At the moment, gold is worth nearly $803 an ounce, which means that each gold $5 is worth approximately $194 for its gold content alone. As you would expect, commemorative gold $10s have double the gold content of the half eagles and are thus worth twice as much for their bullion content alone. Amazingly, several commemorative gold $10s and gold $5s sell essentially as bullion pieces. The reason for this is that they have relatively high mintages. It’s no accident that these are almost exclusively coins issued at the beginning of the minting of modern gold commemoratives. Collectors/investors/speculators were excited by the prospect of these new gold pieces, and some of them did quite well, in the short term, on the secondary market. Although there are exceptions, the trend over the years of the minting of modern commemoratives is for succeeding issues to have lower and lower mintages. The reason for this is that the actual number minted (distributed) depends on customer orders, and there was more

interest in modern commemoratives at the beginning than there is now. The exceptions to the rule of declining mintages are typically commemoratives with popular themes. For example, you would certainly expect a higher distribution for a commemorative honoring the bicentennial of the death of George Washington than a coin celebrating the Capitol Visitor Center. Another trend is that proof versions of each gold commemorative tend to have much larger mintages than circulation varieties. One reason for this is that collectors and non-collectors often find proof coins to be “prettier” than nonproofs, and thus more proofs are ordered than uncirculated coins. Another possible reason for the ordering difference is the mistaken notion among many collectors that proof is a grade and, in particular, a higher (and superior) grade than uncirculated. The truth, of course, is that a proof coin is a totally different breed of coin. It’s like the difference between apples and oranges; you wouldn’t say that an apple is just an inferior orange (or vice versa). They’re totally different things, just as a proof coin and the uncirculated coin with which it shares its image are two different things. COINS JANUARY 2009

10/24/08 4:54:46 PM

In 1999, the U.S. Mint issued this gold $5 marking the bicentennial of George Washington’s death.

In this case, because of the dramatically lower mintages of the uncirculated varieties, the uncirculated coins are actually superior in the sense of being worth more. With this brief background, let’s look at what you can find in modern gold commemoratives. I’ll concentrate first on the half eagles. As I said earlier, several modern commemorative gold $5s sell essentially as bullion pieces. The ones that fit this category are the 1986 Statue of Liberty Centennial, the 1987 Constitution Bicentennial, the1988 Olympics, the 1989 Bicentennial of Congress, and the proof version of the 1991 50th Anniversary of Mount Rushmore. Each of these sells for $226, according to the October edition of Numismatic News “Coin Market.” That price is based on gold at $874 an ounce. At that price, each coin contains $211.33 worth of gold. The 1986 Statue of Liberty Centennial was the first of the modern commemorative gold $5s. The coin is actually quite attractive, featuring on the obverse a closeup view of Liberty’s face and on the reverse a magnificent flying eagle coming in for a landing. Slightly more than 400,000 proofs were minted, with less than a quarter of the uncirculated version produced. Despite this differential, they have the same value in the retail market. The Statue of Liberty issue initially did quite well on the secondary market, as many collectors who hadn’t gotten in on the ordering period decided this was a series they just had to have. As a result, WWW.COINSMAGAZINE.NET

26-cmJanuaryThorne.indd 27

James Smithson appears on this relatively low mintage 1996 gold $5.

the price climbed precipitously. And it was still up when the time came to order the next issue, the 1987 Constitution Bicentennial. Because of this, the Constitution Bicentennial issue was wildly oversubscribed, with 651,659 of the proof version and 214,225 of the uncirculated variety ordered. I hate to admit it, but this was one of my major coin purchases in 1987, as I jumped at the issue with the expectation that it would do just as well as the Statue of Liberty coins had done. The coins themselves are interesting. The obverse features a stylized eagle wielding a giant quill pen, and there’s another giant quill pen on the reverse. This seems like overkill to me, as I’m sure no one really thinks the Constitution was written with a word processor. Unlike the Statue of Liberty coins, the Constitution gold pieces never rose above their issue price, and, in fact, they quickly descended to the level of whatever gold was worth at the time. Ironically, over time that’s also what has happened to the Statue of Liberty coins. In 1988, two gold $5 pieces were produced to commemorate the Seoul, South Korea Olympics. The obverse of the pair of coins shows Nike, goddess of Victory, her head wreathed in a crown of olive leaves. The reverse features a stylized Olympic flame. Production was slightly less than for the Statue of Liberty issue, with 281,465 of the proof version and 62,913 of the uncirculated variety. Next, we have the Bicentennial of Congress issue in 1989. The obverse is dominated by the Capitol dome, whereas

the reverse shows an eagle perched on the canopy above the Old Senate Chamber. Continuing the trend of shrinking mintages, just 164,690 of the proofs and 46,899 of the uncirculated variety were ordered. The final example of a modern commemorative gold $5 that sells as a bullion coin came in 1991, as part of the set of coins honoring the 50th anniversary of Mount Rushmore. The obverse of the $5 gold piece shows an eagle flying above the monument, whereas the reverse is dominated by the words “Mount Rushmore National Memorial,” which seems singularly unimaginative. Mintages of the proof and uncirculated gold $5s were 111,991 and 31,959, respectively, and it’s the proof variety that lists for $226. The uncirculated version has a list price of $285. As you can see from the mintages, none of the 10 coins I’ve described can be called rare or even scarce, so it’s not surprising that nine of the 10 have essentially no collector premium. Still, if you want to put some money into U.S. gold coins, these are certainly more interesting than the single design found on most other U.S. bullion coins. Now, if you’re willing to pay a premium for scarcity, then the other modern commemorative gold $5s offer some interesting possibilities. I’ll next describe some issues that I think are promising because of low mintages and important commemorations. Note that these are strictly my opinions; you may disagree and select an entirely different group of coins. 27

10/24/08 4:55:22 PM

My first pick is the 1992 Columbus Quincentenary issue. After all, what could be more historically important than the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus? The coin’s obverse features a representation of Columbus facing a map of the New World, whereas the reverse “shows the Crest of the Admiral of the Ocean Sea,” according to A Guide Book of United States Coins. Mintages follow the pattern of other modern commemoratives, with more than three times as many of the proof (79,730) as of the uncirculated variety (24,329). “Coin Market” values reflect this differential, with the coin listing for $320 in Mint State-65 and $285 in Proof-65. Both of these grades are fictitious, by the way, as virtually all modern commemoratives will grade between MS-68 (or PR-68) and MS-70 (or PR-70). Because of this narrow grade range, I would strongly advise you to avoid paying a premium for a certified piece with a “super” grade, as such grades are actually the norm. A 1993 coin to honor James Madison and the Bill of Rights seems to have a worthwhile theme to me, and the mintages are quite similar to those of the Columbus issue (78,651 vs. 23,266). The values are also similar, with the proof version worth $265 and its uncirculated counterpart worth $325. The coin’s obverse shows Madison studying the Bill of Rights. The reverse displays a quotation by Madison. Dated 1991-1995, we have a set of commemoratives celebrating the 50th anniversary of World War II. The two gold pieces feature a soldier with rifle raised as a symbol of victory on the obverse and a large “V” for victory on the reverse. Mintage of the proof and uncirculated versions were 67,026 and 23,672, respectively, with values of $330 and $360, respectively. 1995 brought a series of coins aimed at raising funds for Civil War battlefield preservation. The pair of gold $5 pieces feature on the obverse a bugler on horseback. Mintages were low for this issue, with 55,246 of the proof version and 12,735 of the uncirculated variety. Values are $535 and $900, respectively. In 1996, a pair of gold $5s was issued to commemorate the 150th anniversary of James Smithson’s gift to establish the Smithsonian Institution in America. Despite the importance of this gift, not many collectors ordered these coins, with the result that the mintages are quite low: 21,772 proofs and just 9,068 uncirculated coins. Values reflect these low mintages, as the proof version is worth $720 and the uncirculated variety a whopping $1,500. 28

26-cmJanuaryThorne.indd 28

The 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Va., was celebrated in 2007.

In 1997, there were two important commemorative gold $5 issues: one honoring Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier and was Major League baseball’s Rookie of the Year in 1947; and another commemorating Franklin D. Roosevelt, our country’s only fourterm president. Despite the importance of Robinson’s accomplishments, fewer than 30,000 of the two gold pieces were ordered, with approximately four times as many proofs as uncirculateds (24,072 and 5,174, respectively). Values reflect this differential, with the proof version listed at $900 and the uncirculated variety at $5,750! If Barack Obama has been elected president by the time you read this, increased demand for these coins may push the prices even higher. The mintages of Roosevelt’s two gold $5s followed the usual pattern, with nearly three times as many proof coins (29,474) as uncirculated pieces (11,894). The listed values are $565 and $1,100, respectively. In 1999, the Mint commemorated the bicentennial of George Washington’s death with a pair of gold $5s. The obverse shows Washington’s bust in profile, whereas the reverse features a large eagle. Mintages were 41,693 of the proof variety and 22,511 of the uncirculated version. Despite the nearly two to one differential, both varieties have the same list price, $475. Surely the uncirculated version is a better buy. In my opinion, the next commemorative gold $5s with an important theme were issued in 2007. These are the coins struck to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown,

Va., which was the first permanent English settlement in North America. The obverse shows Capt. John Smith, with his ship in the background, greeting (or being greeted by) an American Indian. The reverse depicts Jamestown Memorial Church. With unknown final distribution numbers, the uncirculated and proof versions list for $285 and $275, respectively. Of the gold $10 commemoratives, only the Bicentennial of the Library of Congress and the First Flight Centennial have worthwhile themes, in my opinion. The other $10 issues were all to celebrate the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. Obviously, if you’re into U.S. coins honoring the Olympics, then you’ll want to take a look at these issues, all of which are priced at their bullion value. As such, they represent an interesting alternative to standard American gold bullion coins. The 2000 Library of Congress $10s are particularly interesting because they are bimetallic coins consisting of an outer ring of gold enclosing a platinum center. The distribution was just 27,445 proofs and 7,261 of the uncirculated variety. Values are $1,350 and $3,600, respectively. Given the unique metallic composition and the minuscule mintages, these values may be quite reasonable. The First Flight Centennial issue is dated 2003, and, as you would suspect, features busts of Orville and Wilbur Wright on the obverse, with their plane and an eagle on the reverse. Just 10,009 of the uncirculated variety were distributed, whereas the proof issue has a mintage of 21,676. The uncirculated version lists for $625, the proof variety for $560. Keep in mind that I haven’t discussed all the commemorative gold $5s and $10s. It’s entirely possible that you’ll find some that I dismissed both interesting and attractive. As you can see from my discussion, many of the coins have interesting themes, attractive designs, and super low mintages. In terms of mintages, the uncirculated varieties represent the better buys, particularly if they’re not significantly more expensive than their proof counterparts. Also, given the trend toward lower and lower mintages, it’s entirely possible that future issues will do well on the secondary market, which means that you might want to consider ordering them directly from the Mint rather than waiting to see how they will do. The bottom line on this discussion is that if you’re thinking about putting some money into gold coins, you should certainly consider modern gold commemoratives. ❐ COINS JANUARY 2009

Gold’s amazing comeback Passed $1,000 mark for first time in 2008 By David L. Ganz

Gold American Fix 2008

G

OLD’S amazing 2008 comeback stumbled Aug. 15 as the precious metal dropped below $800 an ounce for the f irst time this year, completing a slide that had begun five months earlier on March 17 when the London daily f ix topped out at $1,023.50, silver weighed in at $20.92, and platinum was at exactly $2,000 an ounce. Gold currently rests slightly above $800, at $803. The London Fix, since 1919, has governed gold transactions. Current members of the Fix are: The Bank of Nova Scotia - Scotia Mocatta; HSBC (formerly Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Corp.); Deutsche Bank AG London; Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking, and Barclays Capital. The procedure followed by the five member firms is designed to fix a price for settling contracts between members of the London bullion market. The fix takes place twice a day, and is now done by telephone at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. local (London) Greenwich mean time. First fix took place on Sept. 12, 1919, amongst the five principal gold bullion traders and refiners of the day: N.M. Rothschild & Sons, Mocatta & Goldsmid, Pixley & Abell, Samuel Montagu & Co. and Sharps Wilkins. The gold price then was £4 18s 9p, (4 pounds, 18 shillings and 9 pence (GBP 4.9375) per troy ounce or about $24 an ounce. The official price was still $23.67 an ounce. Today, gold prices are fixed in United States dollars, pound sterling and European euros. Originally, the offices of N.M. Rothschild & Sons in St. Swithin’s Lane were used for a table side meeting of five competitors; but since May 5, 2004, it has been done by phone. In April, 2004, Rothschild withdrew from gold trading and Barclays Bank took its place. At the Rothschild board room, participants could raise a small Union flag on their desk to pause proceedings. With the telephone fixing system, participants can sill register a pause by saying the word “flag.” A rotating chairman ends the meeting with the phrase: “There are no flags, and we’re fixed.” 30

Gold’s price history probably should be divided into three parts. First is the period prior to 1933, when President Franklin Roosevelt effectively nationalized gold and prohibited private gold ownership. Second is the period from 1934 to Dec. 31, 1974, when U.S citizens lost the right to own gold, except for “rare and unusual” gold coins—numismatic items. Third period in this is from Jan. 1, 1975, to the present when Americans fully participated in the gold market. A fourth period may be in the future when Chinese are able to fully participate in a developed gold market, opening up 300 million middle-class purchasers to this exciting field. Gold’s price history has been remarkably stable over the past century and a half. The accompanying chart shows this stability from 1837 until 1933, with various spikes characteristic of a free market, but aware nonetheless of a giant overhang of bullion held by the world’s central banks. The U.S. stockpile is at Fort Knox and the Federal Reserve Bank vaults in lower Manhattan, not far from the former World Trade Center site. The U.S. gold reserve is a tough cookie to measure, in part because it does not value the gold at market, but instead at the “official” price set by Congress at $42.22 in 1973. (That changed the value from $38 an ounce and effectively devalued the dollar since that was the unit the most banks used to define net worth.) Most gold is in long-term storage—over 258 million ounces—a huge overhang that has led some to suspect price manipulation by the Treasury (which values this at $10.9 billion or about $193 billion at current prices). They deny this, going so far as to say on a government Web site that: “We would like to emphasize that the Treasury Department does not seek to manipulate the price of gold or any other metal by intervening in or otherwise interfering with the market.” America’s history with gold is an uneven one. Gold at the nation’s beginnings did not have its role of today as an asset of last resort, but rather it was a primary asset of wealth. When the United States was founded as a nation, the Constitution was leery of the colonial experience with currency “not worth a Continental.” Banned was issuance of “money” that was not gold and silver. That WWW.COINSMAGAZINE.NET

didn’t mean copper coinage couldn’t be issued for change, and indeed, just three years after the Constitution was adopted, the Mint Act of 1792 called for gold, silver and copper coinage. Gold and silver metal, bullion, foreign coin or plate could be deposited with the Mint where, for a small service or convenience fee (half of 1 percent), the Mint would smelt it down and coin it into national money using prescribed weights and sizes. The value of gold and silver per ounce was determined, the volume of metal legislated, and coinage was ready as soon as the Mint director and chief coiner filed their bonds—which took two years. Each gold coin had its full weight and measure, that is, a gold eagle had just about $10 worth of gold in it. Silver dollars were similarly regulated, as were subsidiary coinage, but the historic problem is that precious metal prices are generally unstable absent a market-maker who guarantees a fixed price. The result was that American silver coinage was worth more melted than coined. Deposits all but ceased, coinage flowed abroad to settle debts or for smelting, and by the turn of the 19th century, silver dollar coinage was entirely suspended—not to be restarted until the mid-1830s. Lacking a domestic source of gold until deposits were discovered decades later in the Carolinas and Georgia, there wasn’t much gold coinage either. Through the early 1800s there was a real need for coinage, and Congress tried to rectify the problem by regulating the value of foreign coins that circulated domestically. For example, the act of April 29, 1816, regulated the legal tender value of foreign coins of Britain and Portugal and called for their assay. Another law, signed March 3, 1819, continued in force legal-tender values of foreign coins. Two years later, the act of March 3, 1821, regulated five franc and crown legal tender values, which was renewed on March 3, 1823. But Congress had a hard time getting it right; the bullion market was constantly changing. As a result, on June 28, 1834, the legal tender value of foreign silver coins of Mexico, Peru, “Chili” and Central America were fixed; the same day, another law reduced weight of foreign gold coins per dollar, thus revaluing the U.S. dollar in the process.

Significant events since 1958 affect U.S. gold prices According to the U.S. Geological Survey there are a number of significant events affecting U.S. gold prices over the last half century: 1961 The London gold pool was established in which U.S. central banks and seven other nations agreed to buy and sell gold to support the $35 per troy ounce price that had been established on January 31, 1934 1968 The London gold pool sustained enormous losses and was discontinued; the two-tier gold price was established, one tier was for official monetary transactions, the other for open-market transactions 1971 President suspends convertibility of dollar into gold, dollar devalued by 7.9% 1972 Official U.S. gold price increased to $38 per ounce 1973 Official U.S. gold price increased to $42.22, dollar devalued, two-tier gold price terminated, Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) oil embargo begins 1974 U.S. citizens allowed to hold gold bullion and coins for the first time in 40 years 1975 U.S. Treasury begins public sales of gold stocks 1976 International Monetary Fund (IMF) begins 5-year gold sales program, IMF auctions and lower inflation outlook drive gold prices down 1977 Hiatus in U.S. Treasury gold sales 1978 U.S. Treasury resumes selling gold, Middle Eastern investors increase gold purchases 1979 Soviet Union invades Afghanistan; political upheaval in Iran, taking of U.S. hostages 1980 Gold price peaks at an historic daily high of $850 per ounce on January 21, IMF completes 5-year gold sales program 1982-88 Fluctuating world currency exchange rates, increasing concern about U.S. trade and budget deficits and banking problems, and Third World debt 1989-91 Conflict in the Persian Gulf and the breaking up of the Soviet Union, erosion of gold’s role as a safe haven for investors, generally weak economic growth worldwide 1992-96 Gold price remains relatively stable 1997-98 Central banks of several countries sell large shares of gold holdings to meet commoncurrency criteria for European Union or to demonetize; bank failures or insolvencies in East and Southeast Asian countries 1999-2008 The new year started with $840 an ounce gold, a slow and steady rise from past years. As 1999 turned to 2000, gold was at $272.15; by 2001, it went to $278.70. Then came 2002 and gold’s price went to $346.70. The next year, the price closed at $414.80. By 2004, the price was at $438.10, then in rapid succession (2005) $517.20; (2006) $636.30 and last year $833.20. 31

The discovery of gold in California, in the late 1840s, had a big impact on the metals market and the issuance of U.S. gold coins.

By 1837, it was necessary to do it again, but this time Congress got it right, setting the value of gold at $20.67 an ounce—a rate that would hold for nearly a century and provide substantial stability. (Charting this using authoritative sources shows that there are slightly higher prices on average due to market movement.) Through the California gold field discoveries, the Civil War, the expansion of America meeting its manifest destiny and to World War I and beyond, the $20.67 an ounce gold—the U.S. gold $20 or double eagle contained $19.999 worth of gold— the price essentially held stable. To be sure, there were spikes, such as when Jay Gould attempted to corner the gold market (1869), but that overall stability came at a price—the monetary system could not expand easily and the government had difficulty assisting the economy. Once, during the Civil War, the government literally ran out of money and had to print paper substitutes. This innovation, by then-Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase, saved the Union—only to be declared unconstitutional after the emergency was over, by newly appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Salmon P. Chase; yes, the same one. Starting around 1867, silver discoveries in Nevada began to impact the marketplace and it became impossible for the government to allow unregulated quantities of metal to be converted into coin—cheap money, for instead of costing a dollar to mint a silver dollar, the cost with metal was more like 67 cents. By the time that the Coinage Act of 1873 was passed, silver had moved to alltime lows and, aside from Trade dollars, which contained the heavier 412.5 grains but were not a legal tender—there was no right to coin silver by depositing metal. The Crime of 1873 all but demonetized silver, an act made complete with the passage of the Gold Standard Act for 1900. America’s golden era ceased with the Great Depression of 1929, when the U.S. sneezed and the world economy caught pneumonia. Gold reserves started an out32

30-cmJanuaryGanzsw.indd 32

flow, and it simply never stopped. By the time of the 1932 presidential election, the depression worsened and a political switch to the policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt lay in the wings. FDR took office March 4, 1933, and shortly thereafter, the New Deal required millions of dollars worth of gold coinage to be turned in by citizens who held them, acting on a government mandate and under a Presidential Proclamation requiring it. Only rare and unusual gold coins were exempt, enough to allow coin collectors to maintain and keep a collection, assuming that they would be able to do that during the depths of economic despair of 1934. March 1968 saw LBJ forced to renounce a second full term, and nearly simultaneously, set up a two-tiered market for gold based on the official price of $35 an ounce, and a free market price that was permitted to float somewhat higher. The price of gold jumped, moving to heights of $43 an ounce, which caused a sensational ripple in the coin market, because double eagles traditionally traded at a price of about 48 percent above the spot price of gold. Overnight, they went from $48 a coin to $60 for uncs. Gold coins were traded and available on a widespread basis, even British sovereigns of the modern era—but if any were made after 1960, they could not be legally imported into the United States without a permit from the Office of Domestic Gold and Silver Operations. Dr. Leland Howard, an assistant director of the Mint, became head of the ODGSO, and his task was to protect the integrity of the Roosevelt seizure order, while simultaneously allowing rare and unusual coin to be imported. Eventually, an arbitrary line in the sand was drawn with 1960 as the demarcation point. Before that, it was rare and unusual —even if it was a 1958 sovereign with 8.7 million pieces produced; afterward, it was common, and not importable with a license—even if it was a 1962 sovereign with 3 million pieces manufactured. The humor of this governmental regulation of the economy can be seen with thou-

sands of words of government regulation that then resulted to try and explain what was rare and unusual; why, and how some items were prohibited, while others could be imported. As gold faced the real market for the first time following 1968, it was inevitable that economic forces that traditionally had driven the price upward—inflation, war, and economic fears—could, in the converse, drive its price down. And so it did in the early days of 1970. By Jan. 16, Under Secretary of the Treasury Paul Volcker (later chairman of the Federal Reserve) announced that the new gold agreement signed with South Africa provided “no assured ‘floor price’ for gold speculators,” and with that, the metal dropped to its lowest price in London free trading in 16 years—below the official floor ($34.90). In a letter to Rep. Henry Reuss, D-Wis., then chair of an international economic subcommittee, Volcker called the agreement with South Africa “consistent with a two-tiered system” of pricing gold. A couple of years later, in an interview with me while serving as Numismatic News Washington Correspondent, Reuss would say that this marked the real beginning of the drive for private gold ownership—which did not take place until Dec. 31, 1974. Gold’s importance to the overall numismatic market wasn’t overlooked in the 1970s, and later. Indeed, I often wrote of the parallel that seemed obvious between the way that the price of gold bullion moved, and the manner in which the coin market responded. The events of January 1970 were at once liberating as well as thought provoking. In a totally free market, gold could rise or fall—and without an official price or a floor, as Volcker put it, the metal price could go below an official government buy price. Ironically, within 18 months, inflation would be ravaging the nation, and on Aug. 15, 1971, President Nixon would suspend the dollar’s convertibility into gold, slamming down the gold exchange window, institute wage and price controls, and set the stage for the dramatic rise of gold— and the numismatic market—for decades to come. Once again the dollar was devalued, raising the official price of gold to $38 an ounce. (Later it would go to its present official price of $42.22). But ironically, with or without an official price, the run on the metal proved the historic truism that gold was, and is, king of precious metals). In 1973, gold regulations were eased slightly, to allow more gold coins minted COINS JANUARY 2009

between 1933 and 1961 to be admitted to the country as “rare” coins, however, a drive in Congress to reverse the action of four decades before failed when the House failed by a single vote to call for immediate ownership. By early 1974, the president had gained the legal authority from Congress to allow private gold ownership at any time he felt it is in the best interests of the international economic situation of the United States. Gold ownership finally came about in one of the most unusual unitings of interest of diverse political elements—the conservative “gold bugs” and the liberal Democrats. Succinctly, the Democrats had a foreign aid package that was in need of passage; the conservative Republican “gold bugs,” most of whom had voted against every foreign aid proposal that ever came before Congress saw a truly golden opportunity. They added a clause to the foreign aid bill that would simultaneously legalize private gold ownership but also retroactively repeal all of the regulations and laws that impeded holding the precious metal. The unusual political coalition held together, the foreign aid bill became law, and on Dec. 31, 1974, private gold ownership was again permissible for the first time in 40 years. Gold’s historic role once again moved to preeminence. Gold’s price rose in the 1979-1980 commodity surge to $800 an ounce, but then relented. Gold coin prices for common typical uncirculated pieces closely mirrored the bullion price, with a modest numismatic surcharge. Charting the coins over an extended period of time shows that they still make a valid investment as well as inflation hedge—better in fact than bullion. In retrospect, the fight to regaining old ownership—and the governmental battle to prevent it—seems silly. Today, people buy gold, invest in it—and hold gold coins – without giving the metal a second thought. The international monetary system did not fall apart with private gold ownership, and neither did the American economy. What was ultimately shown is that those who held onto rare coins—rare gold coins—were richly rewarded. Gold probably has a floor in this at $650, but will likely strengthen if formerly solid financial institutions find themselves in dissolution. This all has an effect on the coin market, but data suggests that a trading range of $750 to $975 in the short run is likely, with higher numbers coming up in the long term. This amazing asset has a history and longevity that simply won’t die. ❐ COINS JANUARY 2009

Spotlighting the Hunt

Coin Finds

Garage find I

once stopped at a garage sale, as I often do. This gentleman had a sack of coins marked as wheat cents. He said there were about 1,600 of them. He said he used to save wheat cents many years ago, and decided to the put them in this sale. I paid him a fair price for the sack. When I got home and looked at these coins, I was amazed. I ended up with 51 1909s in Fine to Extremely Fine and 20 1909 V.D.B. cents in Very Fine to About Uncirculated. It was a once in a lifetime find. The rest of the coins were from 1910-1933. It just goes to show there are still some great finds out there.

Coin Finds

David Hosfeld Naples, N.Y. At my local small bank, the source of my “goodies,” all of the tellers enjoy desert (a cheesecake or a torte) once a month. I deliver it cold, directly from my local Trader Joe’s at or about noon. Does it help? Last month I bought at face value a bundle of consecutively numbered $1 star notes, 100 notes in all. The teller had held them for me. Kaye Munshower Wayne, Pa. During the past couple of months I have searched through about 500 rolls of nickels looking for some great finds. I would like to share with your readers just what I have found: 1939 Jefferson in uncirculated, a 1939-D Jefferson in About Uncirculated, a 1940 Jefferson in Uncirculated, a 1929 Buffalo in Extremely Fine, a 1938-D Buffalo, a 1946-S Jefferson in Brilliant Uncirculated, a 1944-S Jefferson in EF, a 1958-D Jefferson in BU, a 1976 Jefferson in EF with rainbow toning, a 1984-D Jefferson in AU with rainbow toning, and a 1995-P Jefferson in BU with rainbow toning. 36

As you can see, there was nothing really spectacular, but it gives me a lot of excitement looking, plus the joy of finding something good. I have also found a lot of other good 1940s, 1950s and 1960s dates. So I know that rare coins are out there. You just need to be dedicated and diligent in your looking. To use a quote from another numismatist, “…search through the rolls in the cheap world coin bucket,” and you will find good coins. Bob Atwater Myrtle Beach, S.C. My best coin find was not found in pocket change or coin rolls. Actually, I found it while walking to a neighborhood store in the 1960s. It is a Type 1 Standing Liberty quarter. It is not collectible due to its condition, but I can’t help but wonder who owned this quarter. They must have had it for many years, as it is so worn. You can tell what type coin it is by the folds on Liberty’s robe and the low eagle on the reverse. I have found many coins while searching through rolls, but I still treasure my quarter. Name withheld Rockdale, Texas Like many of your readers, I, too, find the “Coin Finds” column my favorite. Last month a friend of a friend called me and asked if I was interested in purchasing some silver dollars. He then told me he had 20 coins and wanted $15 each. He then added he was about to go to a local flea market where he could sell the coins at that price, no questions asked. I never buy coins from anyone I don’t know, but I didn’t want to discourage my friend from referring people to me concerning silver. So I said yes.

1909 V.D.B. cents part of small collection

The gentleman arrived at my house with a roll of coins wrapped in brown paper and a mile of tape. I took a deep breath and reluctantly wrote out a check for $300. Later that day I got the courage to open the roll of coins and to my immediate disappointment, there were 10 Eisenhower dollars, but there were two Peace and eight Morgan dollars. To my surprise I discovered an 1879, 1881-O, 1883, 1884, 1892-CC, 1899-O and a 1921-D Morgan. The two Peace dollars were a 1922-D and a 1928. I didn’t have any of these coins in my collection. All of these coins appear to by in Very Good to Very Fine. Overall I guess I didn’t do to badly. R. Dey Monroe Township, N.J. Every time I get my Coins magazine, I can’t wait to read “Coin Finds.” This is my first great find in months. Everyone in my family knows that I collect old paper money, so when my father told me he had found an old $20 bill, I gladly traded him for the bill. When I flipped the bill over, I saw that it was a Series 1969. This is one of my best finds ever. Nicholas Pottschmidt Medina, Ohio  Support of this column depends

Bargain nickels Buffalo nickel enjoys strong following from collectors

S

truck from 1913 to 1938, Buffalo nickels attracted a lot of attention from the press. Today the coins are still a collector favorite, thanks in part to their interesting history and inexpensive prices for many dates. The Buffalo nickel had been scheduled for Feb. 15, 1913, release, but was delayed because of protests from slot machine men who said the new coin was too thick. The New York Times didn’t like it either. It called the Buffalo nickel “an example of what a coin should not be.” The city of Hartford, Conn., received its first Buffalo nickels March 1, 1913. The Charter Oak National Bank released them on March 3, 1913, but only about $100 worth were available in the first batch. It was a drop in the bucket, considering that movie theaters across the country took in 6.5 billion nickels a year. Manufacturers and owners of slot or vending machines formally opposed the new coin in April 1913. The Mint changed the reverse to show the bison standing on a plane instead of a mound. But it was done to protect the inscription “FIVE CENTS” from wear, not to appease the vending-machine industry. Coin Prices lists both versions of the 1913 Philadelphia Mint Buffalo nickel in Very Good-8 at $11. The Mint turned out more than 41 million Buffalo nickels in 1914, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with demand. Shortages were reported across the country. John D. Rockefeller may have been partly responsible. The dime was his

trademark. He gave away dimes to people he met, as a lesson in thrift. In 1914, Rockefeller advised people to spend their pennies, but save the nickels. Some people really needed advice when it came to nickels. Take the man who swallowed nearly 100 nickels to win a $5 bet. Or the robbers who blew up a bank in 1914 and got only three smooth nickels. At Joliet, convicts used the prison machine shop to make counterfeit nickels. And in Kenosha, Wis., a bank gave someone a bag of gold coins instead of $10 worth of nickels. Today the most affordable 1914 nickel is from the Philadelphia Mint. It’s valued at around $20 in VG-8. There was some sad news regarding the Buffalo nickel in 1915. The Nov. 18, 1915, issue of the Boston Daily Globe reported that Black Diamond, reputed to be the model for the reverse of the nickel, had died. He was 22 years old. In his prime he had an unusually dark coat and

weighed more than 1,500 pounds. The Philadelphia Mint struck nearly 21 million Buffalo nickels in 1915. Many of them went to Boston, where there was increased demand for nickels for streetcar fares. Today a 1915 nickel in Very Fine-20 is valued at $11. In 1916, a traveling salesman from Boston lost $42 matching nickels in New Orleans. In Good-4, 1916-D and 1916-S nickels are worth $15 and $11, respectively. You should be able to find an Extremely Fine-40 1916 nickel for less than $14, according to Coin Prices. The Mint’s nickel presses remained silent throughout 1922 because of a recession. In Chicago, a man was fined for stealing coins from pay telephones. He paid his fine in nickels and dimes. If he were alive today, he would probably be shocked to learn that values for 1921 nickels start at around $4. Make it nearly $70 for a 1921-S. COINS JANUARY 2009

Basics and Beyond

Focus on Walkers T

his month I’m going to review a book devoted to one of the most popular U.S. series: Walking Liberty half dollars, minted between 1916 and 1947. Like other collectors who began collecting in the 1950s and 1960s, I’m particularly fond of the series because it was still widely circulating when I was a novice collector. The book I’m reviewing is Jeff Ambio’s Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars, published by Zyrus Press (www.zyruspress.com). The copy I have is paperback and has a list price of $29.95. Ambio, who has a B.A. degree in history from Cornell and an M.B.A. from Pepperdine, bases his observations about the Walking Liberty series on his decadelong experience as a professional numismatist. Particularly important was his work as an auction cataloger for Heritage Auction Galleries, where he handled thousands of rare coins. It is noteworthy that this book is devoted to Walking Liberty halves in mint state. “While this decision [to only deal with Mint State coins] may come as a shock or disappointment to some readers, realize that it has been made after serious consideration and thorough reflection.… With the exception of costly key-date issues…the lion’s share of the money that changes hands in any given year of numismatic trading concerns coins that grade MS-60/Proof-60 or finer.” Ambio begins with a look at “Popular Collecting and Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars.” Initially, he discusses various kinds of type sets, including a type set of U.S. half dollars, a 20thcentury type set, a complete type set of all U.S. issues, and even a type set made of up of rarer issues in each series. One of the most interesting ways to collect/invest in Walking Liberty half dollars is to assemble one or more partial sets in the series. As he puts it, “Unlike many other 40

40-Basics-sw2.indd 40

series in U.S. numismatics, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar is easily divided into two or three subseries for ease of collecting.” Ambio divides the series into “earlydate issues,” which are Walking Liberty halves minted from 1916-1933. Then, there are “middle-date issues,” coins struck from 1934-1940. Finally, there are “late-date issues,” coins dated 1941-1947. Of course, many collectors choose to combine the middle and late issues into a partial set from 1934-1947. In Chapter 2, Ambio briefly discusses some “Considerations for Buying Walking Liberty Half Dollars.” These boil down to two major topics: finding a reputable dealer and buying coins certified by either Numismatic Guranty Corp. or the Professional Coin Grading Service. The specification of these two services tie in with Ambio’s advocacy of forming Registry Sets, or sets assembled from coins certified by either NGC or PCGS. Chapter 3 is a brief overview of the series, beginning with a look at Adolph Weinman. According to Ambio, Weinman preferred to be known as an architectural sculptor rather than as a coin designer despite his fame among coin collectors for the Walking Liberty half dollar and the socalled Mercury dime. Chapter 4 is the heart of Ambio’s book, as it contains the date-by-date analysis of the series. To give you some of the flavor of this section, let me pick a date and tell you what Ambio has to say about it. One of my favorite dates has always been the 1917-S obverse mintmark half dollar. It’s one of the few coins in the series with a mintage below 1 million pieces (952,000). In terms of Ambio’s “Rarity Rankings,” it is sixth out of 65 in overall mint state and eigth in terms of grades MS-65 or higher. As for important varieties, Ambio reports that there are none. Under “General Comments,” Ambio writes, “The 1917-S Obverse is virtually

Ambio details mint-state specimens of popular half dollar identical to the 1917-S Reverse in high-grade rarity, but it is nearly twice as rare in terms of total number of Mint State examples known [on the next page, he estimates this total as 300-425].” This issue is rare even in lower grades through MS-63. Near-Gems are very rare, and there are no more than 60 coins extant that grade MS-65 or finer.” Ambio reports that “The strike is generally well executed with bold-to-sharp definition over the central highpoints.” The date “almost always has satin luster,” and mint state examples typically have “a fair number of small and moderate-size abrasions.” He reports that “very few examples are either completely brilliant or attractively toned.” All of this combines to give below average eye appeal for the issue. Under “Significant Examples,” Ambio lists just one coin, a PCGS MS-66 that sold in a Heritage auction in 2002 for $27,600. After this example, Ambio presents a couple of charts in which he estimates the total known by grade and then values by grade. Finally, under “Collecting and Investing Strategies,” Ambio writes, “This is one issue that will almost certainly require you to compromise on eye appeal and, instead, focus on finding a certified example that fits into your budget.” After Chapter 4, Ambio presents several appendices that provide his rankings of Walking Liberty halves in terms of rarity in mint state, in MS-65 or better, and then broken down by early-date, middle-date, and late-date. A Glossary follows the appendices, and in it I was surprised to find definitions of all the circulated grades, including even About Good. Considering that this book focuses on mint state coins only, I feel sure that the circulated grades appear only in the Glossary, not in the text. All in all, this is an interesting effort, and if you like mint state Walking Liberty halves and can afford them, then it definitely deserves a spot in your numismatic library. COINS JANUARY 2009

Flight of gold $5 turbulent This denomination has seen plenty of melting over the years By Tom LaMarre

melting pot. In 1913, dealer S.H. Chapman paid $35 for a 1796 gold $5. Today, you are unlikely to find one for less than $12,000. At B. Max Mehl’s sale of the Edward B. Tichener Collection in June 1928, a 1797 gold $5 brought $700. Today, a Mint State-60 1797 gold $5 commands as much as $150,000, according to Coin Prices. Josiah K. Lilly owned the unique 1797 Capped Bust, heraldic eagle, 16 stars obverse and reverse gold $5. It now resides in the Smithsonian Institution.

T

HE FLIGHT of the half eagle or gold $5 lasted more than a century, but it ran into plenty of turbulence along the way. Speculators melted or exported most of the pre-1834 gold $5s. A new gold coinage standard increased the number of gold coins in circulation. So did the great California Gold Rush that began in 1848-1849. But the Civil War erased any progress as all gold coins disappeared from circulation. By the late 1800s, gold $5s turned up mainly in bank reserves and in Christmas stockings. Even so, the denomination lasted until the 1930s, when the Great Depression and a series of executive orders brought the historic series to an end.

EARLY BIRDS An Act of April 1792 authorized a gold $5 coin known as the half eagle. Production of the denomination didn’t begin until mid-1795. A shortage of gold and the priority given to other denominations caused the delay. Moses Brown deposited the first gold at the Philadelphia Mint on Feb. 12, 1795, according to an item in the September 1959 issue of Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine. Joseph Wright made the second deposit, on March 31, 1795. It consisted of 21 ounces in ingot form. In May, the Mint received two additional deposits totaling 59 ounces. In June, Joseph Anthony made three gold deposits amounting to 1,344 ounces. Engraver Robert Scot designed the first gold $5. The obverse depicts Liberty wearing a Liberty cap. The reverse pictures a young eagle perched on a palm branch, holding a small laurel wreath in its beak. Scot reportedly copied the design from a Roman first-century B.C. onyx cameo. It may not have been perfect, but it was a start. The Oct. 21, 1795, issue of the Columbian Sentinel, published in Boston, went slightly overboard in its description of the coin: “About 8,000 Half Eagles (value Five dollars) have been issued from the Mint of the United States. The Editor has one in his possession. It is finely executed. Liberty is represented by a female head, 42

Coinage of the gold $5 began in 1795 with the Capped Bust design and small eagle reverse.

in which the finest touches of the graver display the most perfect symmetry of feature, animated with the truly beneficent expression of a Deity. “Our Columbian artist has evinced the justness of his ideas of Freedom by the mild yet resolute, the firm yet feminine soul which he has communicated to his figure of that divine goddess; speaking eloquently from her countenance, winning our love and commanding our homage. The reverse bears the American Eagle, soaring with the Olive Branch. The gold appears of the finest carat; and the coinage must be popular not only from its intrinsic value, but its exquisite workmanship.” A heraldic eagle reverse replaced the young eagle in 1797, but the new reverse also appears on some 1795 gold $5s. The Mint may have struck the 1795 heraldic eagle-reverse gold $5s under emergency conditions in late 1798, according to A Guide Book of United States Coins. At the sale of the Bispham collection in 1880, a 1795 gold $5 realized only $150, a disappointing price even back then. Annual production of Liberty Cap gold $5s peaked in 1806, when the Mint turned out more than 60,000. Even so, most of the coins eventually went to the

CAPPED BUST A change in engravers resulted in a new gold $5 design. In 1807, Mint Director Robert Patterson wrote to President Thomas Jefferson: “Our present engraver, Scot, though indeed a meritorious and faithful officer, is yet so far advanced in life that he cannot very long be expected to continue his labors. In the event of his sickness or death, the business of the institution would probably be stopped for some time, since few, if any one, could be found qualified to supply his place, except Mr. [John] Reich, an artist with whose talents, I presume, you are not unacquainted. “And this gentleman, not finding business here sufficient for his support is, I understand, about to remove to Europe. A small salary would, however, retain him in [this] country and secure his services to the Mint. And, in truth, the beauty of our coins would be greatly improved by the assistance of his masterly hand. “An assistant engraver was formerly employed by Mr. Rittenhouse, and by Mr. DeSaussure, and with your approbation, sir, I would immediately employ Mr. Reich in that capacity. He is willing, for the present, to accept the moderate compensation of $600 per annum. And should this gentleman be employed, perhaps more than his salary would be saved to the public, in what is usually expended on the engraving of dies for medals, but which might then be executed by an artist in their own service, with little or no additional expense.” Reich became an assistant engraver at the Mint in 1807.

This 1799 gold $5 has the heraldic eagle reverse.

$5 gave way to Reich’s Capped Bust $5 coin in 1813. The design lasted until 1834. Because the intrinsic value of the Capped Bust gold $5 exceeded its face value, which explains few of the coins have survived. Collectors especially prize the 1815, 1822, 1824/5, 1827 and 1829. The Mint reduced the diameter of the gold $5 in 1829 and made minor changes to the design, lettering, date and stars. Workers created 1829 large-date and small-date varieties. Collectors know of only seven 1829 large-date and possibly six 1829 small-date gold $5s. 1815 The Philadelphia Mint struck 635 gold $5s in 1815. Thomas Parker, Charles Kalkman and the Bank of Pennsylvania provided the gold used for the coins. Workers struck all of the coins in a single day, Nov. 3, 1815. Of the total mintage, only about a dozen examples have survived. Montroville W. Dickeson wrote in The American Numismatical Manual, published in 1859: “The Mint report gives a coinage of 635 pieces for this year. We have never met with one of them.” A letter written by collector Joseph J. Mickley appeared in the January 1873 issue of the American Journal of Numismatics. Mickley described his recent trip to Europe and mentioned an 1815 gold $5: “There are but a few collections in which coins relating to our country, either colonial or national, are met with: some are in the British Museum; among them, is the series of Lord Baltimore, in silver and copper, a fine U.S. dollar of 1794, and 44

42-cmJanuaryLaMarre.indd 44

a few other pieces. In Berlin are a few, but nothing remarkable; in Stockholm, a fine half-eagle of 1815.…” The March 1893 issue of The Numismatist said five 1815 gold $5s existed. It added that the king of Sweden paid $2,000 for one of them to complete his set of U.S. coins. In June 1946, B. Max Mehl auctioned the Atwater Collection. It included an 1815 gold $5 described as follows: “1815. Practically Uncirculated and one of the greatest rarities of the entire series of half eagles. This is only the second specimen I have offered at auction in my more than 45 years of numismatic experience. The other specimen was in the Ten Eyck Sale conducted by me in 1922 where a specimen in similar condition brought $2,250. Remember this was in 1922, nearly a quarter of a century ago. “However, as stated in my Ten Eyck catalog, I had previously sold a specimen at private sale to Mr. H.O. Granberg of Wisconsin for $3,500. This was in 1912. Only about six or seven specimens known. This identical coin is from the great Waldo Newcomer Collection, who sold it to Mr. Atwater when he, Mr. Newcomer, purchased the Woodin Collection, which was originally the Granberg Collection. A specimen offered at auction in 1944 brought $3,600. “It is very interesting to note that of all of the early half eagles, not excepting even the 1822, the 1815 had a smaller coinage than any other date $5 gold piece of the early dates. A total of only 635 specimens were minted. Of the 1822 the Mint record shows that 17,796 specimens were coined. While the 1815 is not in the class of the 1822, I think it would not be overstating to rate it in the $5,000 class. Not in the Dunham Collection nor in the great gold collection recently sold.” In January 1994, an MS-61 1815 gold $5 changed hands for $150,000. Coin Prices lists an 1815 gold $5 in Fine-12 at $27,000. 1822 Texas dealer B. Max Mehl called the 1822 gold $5 the “King of All Rarities.” Collectors know of only three survivors. The Smithsonian has two of them. The remaining example realized nearly $700,000 in its most recent sale, in 1982. Mehl wrote of the 1822 $5 coin: “The pride of its possession and ownership cannot be overestimated. The great enhancement in value which this rarity will influence the values of other coins in a collection is untold and inestimable. This great coin has always been and always will be the fondest dream of

Engraver John Reich is credited with Capped Bust design for the gold $5 minted from 1807-1812.

ownership of American collectors and a dream which may be realized not only once in a lifetime, but once in several lifetimes.” Records indicate the Mint struck nearly 18,000 gold $5s in 1822. Most of them probably bore the date 1821. The Mint often kept outdated but serviceable dies in use. Early chief coiner Adam Eckfeldt may have presented an 1822 gold $5 to the National Numismatic Collection in 1838, which accounts for one of the examples now in the Smithsonian. Some numismatists speculate that Eckfeldt might have saved the 1822 gold $5 from a batch of coins returned to the Mint for melting. In the 1800s, prominent collector Harlan Page Smith bragged how he had spotted an 1822 gold $5 in a bullion dealer’s shop and bought the coin for only $6.50. Smith died in 1902. Davis & Harvey auctioned Smith’s collection in 1906. S.H. & H. Chapman prepared the auction catalog. It stated: “The late Mr. Harlan P. Smith for a great many years was an ardent amateur collector of coins, and during the later period of his life engaged actively in dealing in them, but always endeavored to improve his own private cabinet, and collectors will here find a collection that takes rank with the finest that have ever been sold as regards completeness, rarity, and preservation, and probably equals in value the great Mills collection, which we sold two years ago, for what it may lack in the colonial series in comparison with the former collection, it surpasses in the United States gold coins, for it contains COINS JANUARY 2009

all the great rarities in the latter series and is complete in the silver, with the exception only of the 1804 dollar.” The 1822 gold $5, Lot 210, highlighted the sale. The catalog described it as, “Very Fine, of the highest rarity, surpassing all other dates of this denomination. We know of but three specimens: U.S. Mint, Virgil M. Brand, and the present example [which] was in the Parmelee sale [of] 1890, where it was loaned by H.P. Smith, to take the place of Parmelee’s specimen which had proved to be counterfeit.” Parmelee had consigned his collection to Smith’s firm. Before the sale took place, numismatists realized Parmelee’s 1822 gold $5 was a counterfeit. Advertising had promoted Parmelee’s collection as the greatest ever sold. To prevent embarrassment, Smith removed the counterfeit gold $5 from the sale and substituted his own genuine coin. However, Smith had no intention of parting with the coin. He kept it by bidding $900, according to Auctions by Bowers and Merena. At the 1906 sale of the Smith collection, the 1822 gold $5 realized $2,165, a record price for a U.S. coin at that time. William Forrester Dunham became the coin’s new owner. He kept it for 35 years, turning down J. Pierpont Morgan’s $35,000 offer. Mehl recalled: “A number of years ago, while in Chicago, Mr. Dunham told me that some year or two after his coming into possession of this great coin, a representative or agent of the late J. Pierpont Morgan called on him and urged him to part with the coin, finally offering $35,000 cash for it. This incident was later, and just recently, verified to me by Mr. Henri Ripstra of Chicago (immediate past president of the American Numismatic Association), who informs me that he was present in Mr. Dunham’s office when the offer was made by the representative of Mr. Morgan.” After Dunham’s death, the coin went through a succession of owners. Josiah K. Lilly gave it to the Smithsonian in 1968, along with the rest of his gold coin collection, in a tax deal with the government. Chicago brewer Virgil Brand owned the only 1822 gold $5 in private hands today. Brand began collecting coins in 1889 and acquired the 1822 gold $5 a decade later. He died in 1926, and the rare coin went to his brother Horace. Abe Kosoff acquired the Brand 1822 gold $5 in 1945 on behalf of the National Numismatic Gallery. He sold it to Baltimore banker Louis E. Eliasberg Sr., for $14,000. The Eliasberg collection, including the 1822 gold $5, starred in a Bicentennial exhibit at the Philadelphia Mint in 1976. Graded Very Fine-30, the WWW.COINSMAGAZINE.NET

former emissions.” Gold $5s of the new standard also had a revised design by engraver William Kneass. Classic Head gold $5s were struck from 1834 to 1838. At a March 1911 auction, a “new type” 1834 gold $5 realized $30. Today, Coin Prices lists a VF-20 gold $5 of the revised standard at $17,500.

Less than 30,000 gold $5s were minted in 1825. All of them are overdates.

1822 gold $5 realized $687,500 at an October 1982 auction. 1825 The Mint struck 29,060 gold $5s in 1825. All were overdates, either 1825/1 or 1825/4. About two dozen 1825/1 gold $5s are known. For years, collectors believed the 1825/4 to be unique. It was the Mendes Cohen specimen which Louis Eliasberg Sr. acquired. In 1978, however, Harry X Boosel discovered a second coin. Part of the N.M. Kaufman Collection, it had been in a bank vault in Marquette, Mich., for half a century. Kaufman had been the bank’s president, and the collection was occasionally displayed in the bank. The Kaufman 1825/4 gold $5 realized $140,000 when it was auctioned in August 1978. At a February 1996 sale, it brought $275,000. DOWNSIZING In July 1834, The Republican Compiler, published in Gettysburg, Pa., reprinted legislation reducing the weight of the gold $5 and other gold coins. It stated in part: “An Act Concerning the Gold Coins of the United States… Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the gold coins of the United States shall contain the following quantities of metal, that is to say…each Half Eagle 116 grains of pure gold, and 129 grains of standard gold.” The Sept. 1, 1834, issue of The New England Magazine said, “The eagle and half eagle of the new coinage will be less in diameter than those of the

CORONET HEAD When most people think of the half eagle—if they think of it at all—they recall the dignified Liberty Head gold $5 piece. It remained in production from 1839 to 1908, longer than any other gold $5. Designed by engraver Christian Gobrecht, the Liberty Head gold $5 firmly established the denomination. Annual mintages soared in the 1880s, topping 3 million in 1880 and peaking at more than 6 million in 1881. The series also brought the first gold $5s struck at branch mints, beginning with the highly prized 1839-C and 1839-D, struck at Charlotte, N.C., and Dahlonega, Ga. The Carson City Mint struck its first gold $5s in 1870, turning out fewer than 8,000. Coin Prices lists an MS-60 example at $110,000. Another Coronet Head rarity is the 1875 Philadelphia issue. Only 220 were struck, all proofs. Coin Prices lists a Proof-65 1875 gold $5 at $110,000. The 1887 Philadelphia gold $5 is another proof-only issue. With a mintage of 87 pieces, it is valued at $120,000 in Proof65. THE MYSTERY OF THE 1841-O The New Orleans Mint supposedly struck 50 gold $5s in 1841. According to an item in the June 1957 issue of Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine, only one specimen survived. Another example, reported by R.L. Speice in The Numismatist years earlier, was unverified. The list of owners of the sole surviving 1841-O gold $5 included the names of Egypt’s King Farouk, eccentric millionaire Col. E.H.R. Green, well-known collectors Waldo Newcomer, and W.H. Woodin. Coin guides now list the 1841-O gold $5 as unconfirmed. 1854-S The San Francisco Mint struck 268 gold $5s in 1854, its first year of operation. Only three are known. In 1850, President Millard Fillmore recommended the establishment of a branch mint in San Francisco. Congress approved the plan in 1852. Mint Director James Ross Snowden wrote in his report for 1853: 45

10/24/08 3:54:43 PM

“The branch mint at San Francisco, California, it is expected, will be ready to receive deposits and commence operations about the 1st of March next. In consequence of a change in the grade of the street on which the building is being erected, more time will be consumed in its completion than was anticipated. “The machinery, which was constructed in Philadelphia, arrived there in good condition on the 12th of December last; but a portion of the fixtures and apparatus had not arrived on the 30th of December, the date of my last advices, the vessel containing them having then been out 145 days. These circumstances will probably delay the commencement of coining operations until the time above stated. The coins to be issued by this branch of the mint will be designated by the letter S on the reverse.” The San Francisco Mint opened on April 3, 1854, with L.A. Birdsall as its first superintendent. In October 1982, the Eliasberg 1854-S gold $5, graded About Uncirculated-55, realized $170,000. MINTMARKS In the 1800s, few collectors were interested in mintmarks. A.G. Heaton was an exception. In his booklet “Mint Marks,” published in 1893, Heaton wrote: “The half eagle ($5.00) was coined in New Orleans from 1840 to ’57 except 1848, ’49, ’50, ’52 and ’53. No date should be even very scarce in the South, but ’41 more nearly so. “Dahlonega issued the piece from 1838 to ‘61 consecutively. The last date is very rare. “The Charlotte issue was during the same period, except in the year 1845. Of the C dates, 1861 is scarcest, with ’46, ’60 and ’40 in order. “The San Francisco list extends from 1854 to ’88. Its first issue, ’54, is exceedingly rare and should command a high price. 1864 and ’76 are rare, ’75 and ’62 scarce. The rest should be readily found in the far western banks. “Carson City issued Half Eagles from 1850 to ’84 continuously. No date is of small issue and all may be hopefully sought where western gold circulates. “The number of Half Eagle Mint Marks to 1893 is 115, representing $575 in face value.” In another section of the booklet, Heaton commented: “From the very limited use of gold in the greater part of the United States, these pieces are not to be found by simply waiting for them to appear in circulation as in the case of silver coin, nor will they form 46

pieces turned up again in June 1876. Counterfeit gold $5s made of base metal circulated in San Francisco in 1881. The Dec. 24, 1892, issue of The Decatur Republican reported the arrest of J.C. Scott and R.A. Maddux in Washington, D.C., “the former for passing counterfeit gold half eagles, the other for having in his possession counterfeit gold half eagles. One hundred and one of these coins were found in the possession of Maddux, who is a merchant in Porterville, Cal. The coins bear the date of 1880, are new in appearance, and are all struck from the same die.”

Classic Head gold $5s by William Kneass were minted from 1834-1838.

part of the collections that revert to dealers for sale. It becomes therefore of the utmost importance that dealers and collectors should use all influence to examine the gold reserve of the banks in their vicinity, or that paying tellers, and those persons who count the case in Government vaults, Sub-Treasuries, Branch Mints and private financial institutions, should be somewhat informed numismatically, both for their own profit and the enriching of private and public collections by their discoveries. But it would cause less delay here also if some experienced collector were authorized to be present when the counting of coin was in progress, both to see the contents of sacks and to mark upon them as far as possible the period of the coinage they contained.” COUNTERFEITS Copies of gold $5s go back almost as far as the denomination itself. In the early 1800s, the British firm of Kettle & Sons made imitation, gold-plated 1803dated gold $5s for use as game counters. Although the firm did not create the pieces with fraudulent intent, the Kettle counters created confusion for a later generation of collectors. In the 1930s, the Wayte Raymond catalog mistakenly listed them as patterns. In 1852, authorities arrested members of a New York City counterfeiting gang for manufacturing fake gold $5s and other denominations. The same year, Valentine Koon was charged with passing a counterfeit $5 coin. In the summer of 1873, counterfeit gold $5s dated 1871 circulated in New York City and Boston. Bogus gold $5

LIGHTWEIGHT GOLD $5S A collector in the early 1900s described a worn gold coin as an anomaly—“I have never seen one.” Nevertheless, newspaper items occasionally discussed the problem of worn or lightweight gold $5s and other gold coins. In 1879, one newspaper estimated the life of the gold $5 at 20 years. Another newspaper claimed that a gold $5 could remain in circulation for 50 years without losing enough gold to significantly affect its value. In December 1894, however, Philadelphia members of the Stewart syndicate deposited gold with the assistant U.S. Treasurer in Philadelphia, for their share in a new bond issue. Workers discovered several thousand lightweight gold $5s. PRATT’S INDIAN HEAD Boston sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt took a different path when he designed the Indian Head gold $2.50 and $5. The Numismatist described them as “a novelty in modern coinage.” They were the first U.S. coins with a realistic depiction of a Native American, foreshadowing the Buffalo nickel by nearly five years. They also had designs in sunken relief. The American Journal of Numismatics said the obverse portrait was that of “an Indian chieftain whose stern countenance indicates that he is ready for any emergency which may arise.” Chief Thundercloud, a Blackfoot, was the model. Thundercloud was a former U.S. Army scout and had toured Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West. The standing eagle on the reverse of the new gold coins was copied from the Saint-Gaudens gold $10 piece. But it was not an exact copy. The American Journal of Numismatics noted that the eagle’s neck was slightly broader and its head larger in proportion than on the $10 coin, and the clump of arrows below the bird’s talons was slightly thicker.

Christian Gobrecht designed the Liberty Head gold $5, which was minted fom 1839-1908.

The Indian Head gold $2.50s and $5s made their debut in late 1908, just in time for Christmas gift-giving. The December 1908 issue of Mehl’s Numismatic Monthly reported: “Our New York correspondent informs us that the new $2.50 and $5 gold pieces have made their appearance in that city. Every unkind thing, save one, that was said about the Saint-Gaudens coins when the first $20 pieces were issued last fall, were said about the new $2.50 and $5 pieces issued from the New York subtreasury. The fault found with the early coins, that they would not stack readily, is not found this time. “The new coins have been declared inartistic and lacking in everything but intrinsic value and purchasing power. And that they look less like real money than anything since the tokens current during the Civil War. “In the new coins the eagle on the reverse side is crowded between the ‘E Pluribus Unum’ on one side and ‘In God We Trust’ on the other, and with the usual inscription above and below, is cramped for room. The whole effect of this side is essentially Egyptian. “In the first consignment there was but $15,000 in all, and but one of each denomination was allowed each of the many who called for them. That there will be plenty of them later and that there will be no reason for their going at a premium is the message sent out from the department at Washington.” Not everyone liked the coins. Philadelphia coin dealer Samuel H. Chapman called then “an utterly miserable, hideous production” and “a disgrace WWW.COINSMAGAZINE.NET

42-cmJanuaryLaMarre.indd 47

to our country.” In a letter to President Theodore Roosevelt, Chapman claimed the Indian head was “emaciated” and “without artistic merit.” Furthermore, he wrote that the eagle on the reverse represented “not our national bird, which has no feathers on its feet, but resembles more closely the golden eagle, which is also indigenous to Europe.” The most serious charge against the new coins was that their sunken design would be a receptacle for dirt and make them a “conveyor of disease.” They were supposedly “the most unhygienic coins ever issued.” Dr. William Sturgis Bigelow, a friend of Pratt and Roosevelt, defended the design. So did John C. Lighthouse, a well-known collector. “I have read pro and con about our new gold pieces,” he wrote from his Rochester, N.Y., hospital bed, “and I have concluded that if the best designers on earth would come and design coins, they could not please everybody.” In Numismatic Art in America, Cornelius Vermeule wrote that Pratt’s Indian Head gold pieces displayed more imagination and daring of design than almost any other issue in American history. The 1909-D and the 1911-S are the only Indian Head gold $5s with a mintage greater than 1 million. On the other hand, there is the 1909-O, the only Indian Head gold $10 struck at the New Orleans Mint, which stopped striking coins later the same year. Fewer than 250,000 1909-O gold $5s were struck. CHRISTMAS GOLD $5S For those who could afford to be generous, the gold $5 was popular for Christmas gift-giving. In December 1891, newspapers reported strong demand for Christmas half eagles. In December 1899, the Decatur, Ill., Daily Review commented on the increased number of gold coins in the hands of the public. Demand was so great in December 1910 that Philadelphia Mint employees had to work overtime. In 1913, U.S. Treasurer John Burke directed shipments of gold coins to all parts of the country. The shipments consisted mainly of gold $2.50s and $5s. In Dec. 1916, the Warren (Ohio) Evening Mirror said that never before had there been a Christmas season when gold coins were so prominent. The A. Knebb Co., a barrel manufacturer, gave gold $5s to every employee of record prior to August 1916. After 1916, the government tried to discourage the practice of giving gold coins as Christmas gifts. No gold $5s were minted from 1917-1928.

Bela Lyon Pratt employed a sunken design for his gold $5, minted from 1908-1929.

But when banks stockpiled gold coins for Christmas in 1923, older gold $5s created the greatest demand. In December 1924, the nation’s gold reserves dropped more than $40 million in a single week because of the demand for gold coins for Christmas. In December 1926, many bags of older gold $5s left the Federal Reserve Banks by the truck load, headed for banks throughout the country. In an annual ritual, the fortunate recipients quickly spent most of the coins. Stores returned them to banks soon after Christmas. In January 1927, the New York Telephone Co., the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Co. and the Interborough Rapid Transit Co. offered some advice to anyone who had received a gold $5 as a Christmas present: “Don’t carry your $5 gold piece in the same pocket with your nickels.” Many of the coins, spent by mistake, were turning up in pay phones and streetcar fare boxes. ENDANGERED SPECIES Production of gold $5s ended in 1929, the year of the great stock market crash. The Mint struck more than 600,000 examples. Most of them were never released. Coin Prices lists an AU-50 1929 gold $5 at $10,500. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt banned the production and distribution of gold coins by a series of executive orders. He also placed widely misunderstood restrictions on the private ownership of gold. A Brooklyn girl sent a gold $5 and gold chain to Roosevelt as her contribution to the anti-hoarding campaign. ❐ 47

Harry Miller How to use the ‘Coin Value Guide’ Value Listings. Values listed are average retail prices. These are the approximate prices collectors can expect to pay when purchasing coins from dealers. They are not offers to buy or sell. The values are compiled by Coins’ independent staff of market analysts. They derive the values listed by monitoring auction results, business on electronic dealer trading networks, business at major shows, and in consultation with a panel of dealers. For rare coins, a recent auction result is listed. The panel for U.S. coins consists of Jack H. Beymer, Larry Briggs, Jay Cline, Lee Crane, Sheridan Downey, Wayne Freese, Brian Greer, Joe Hollingsworth, Jim Long, Virg Marshall, Jim O’Donnell, Ken Pines, Tom Reynolds, John Sacher, Larry Shepherd, and Rick Tomaska. Bill Brandimore serves as the price analyst and edits paper money sections. The panel for U.S. paper money consists of Kevin Foley, Dean Oakes, and Bill Rindone. Grading. Values are listed for coins in various states of preservation, or grades. Standards used in determining grades are those set by the American Numismatic Association. A summary of those standards appears periodically in Coins. Readers should refer to Official ANA Grading Standards for United States Coins for full explanation of each grade for each series. The book is available at coin shops and from the ANA (818 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, Colo. 80903-3279). Dates and mintmarks. The dates listed are the individual dates that appear on each coin. The letter that follows the date is the mintmark and indicates where the coin was struck: “C” — Charlotte, N.C. (1838-1861); “CC” — Carson City, Nev. (1870-1893); “D” — Dahlonega, Ga. (1838-1861), and Denver (1906-present); “O” — New Orleans (1838-1909); “P” — Philadelphia (1793-present); “S” — San Francisco (1854-present); and “W” — West Point, N.Y. (1984-present). Coins without mintmarks were struck at Philadelphia. A slash mark in a date indicates an overdate. This means a new date was engraved on a die over an old date. For example, if the date is is listed as “1898/8,” an 1899 die had a 9 punched or hubbed over the last 8 in the date. Portions of the old numeral are still visible on the coin. A slash mark in a mintmark listing indicates an overmintmark (example: “1922P/D”). The same process as above occurred, but this time a new mintmark was engraved over an old. Abbreviations. “Inc. Abv.” in the mintage column indicates the mintage for this coin is included in the mintage for the previous listing. “Est.” indicates the exact mintage is not known and the figure listed is an estimate. Star notes. In small-size paper money listings, a star after the series listing indicates a replacement note. Star Notes have a small star next to serial numbers on the note itself.

Market Watch

Early type heats up Everything from 1793 half cents to Bust dollars on the move

V

irtually everything in early type from 1793 half cents to Bust dollars is hot, especially if near mint state. It is especially interesting to note that Bust dollars are again changing hands with some definite price increases. For about 18 months these were weak. A wealthy West coast investor had bought up about 2,000 of these over about a five-year period and then sold to take profits. The increased supply overhung the market for awhile, but is now pretty much dispersed. The strongest area is in half dimes, dimes and quarters prior to 1808. There is just not enough material in undamaged original surfaces for demand. The next group, Capped Bust material in these denominations, represents what is probably the best value out there. Although they have moved up in price recently, they are by no means overpriced and could easily double. A lower grade example can be purchased for under $50 and nicer mid-grade coins for around $200. I know several insiders who are putting these away at 10 percent to 20 percent less and intend to do so as prices increase. To put this into perspective, you can go to a major show and

walk the floor and probably turn up 100-200 1921 Peace dollars at Coin Value Guide levels, but I doubt you could find more than 25 of any of the above items. Proof sets along with modern Mint product have been extremely quiet for this time of year. Unless some of the promoters get active, the more readily available will be declining in price. Barber coins, especially in the Fine to Extremely Fine grades, are very strong with few or none available of the scarcer dates. The 1913-S dimes and quarters have increased in the past few months. So has the 1896-S quarter. Indian Head cents, especially in the 1860s through 1870s, are strong. Lincoln cents trade more actively at the new price levels, possibly with the exception of the 1909-S V.D.B., which is quiet. Mercury dimes are moving well with special emphasis on the Very Fine to About Uncirculated coins in the first half of the series, especially all the D-mint issues. This past month my Krause e-mail was down (new computer, wrong link copied over). I apologize. It is fixed. Contact harrym-fwpubs@ swfla.rr.com, or P.O. Box 100579, Cape Coral, FL 33910-0579. 49

Grading Standards

Grading your coins

Grading Standards

Careful consideration must be given to the condition of a coin before arriving at its value, since a minor difference in grading can mean a substantial difference in price. There are several factors to keep in mind when attributing varying grades of preservation. Determining the condition of a coin is both an exact science and a subjective judgment call. Complete agreement on the exact qualities that constitute a grade of condition does not always occur between two individuals. The following chart is a consensus based on the 10 most frequently encountered coins commanding premium values in circulated condition (illustrations not actual size). The descriptive grades can be applied to other issues. Qualities described are based on the standards developed and adopted by the American Numismatic Association. MS-65 (uncirculated)—MS stands for mint state, which refers to a coin that has never been placed in circulation. An MS-65 is a superior mintstate example. It will be sharply struck with full mint luster. There will be no distracting marks in the field or on the raised areas of the design. The coin may be brilliant or naturally toned, but it must have superior “eye appeal” to qualify as an MS-65. MS-64 (uncirculated)—May have light scattered contact marks. Luster will be at least average. MS-63 (uncirculated)—May have some distracting marks in prime focal areas with a few scattered hairlines. Coins in this grade will generally have a pleasing appearance. MS-60 (uncirculated)—The typical quality encountered in coins struck for circulation. No wear will be evident, but a small number of bag marks, nicks, or other abrasions will be present. Surfaces could be dull or spotted. AU-50 (about uncirculated)—Just a slight amount of wear from brief exposure to circulation or light rubbing from mishandling may be found on the elevated design areas. Those imperfections may appear as scratches or dull spots, along with bag marks or edge nicks. At least half of the original mint luster will usually be present. EF-40 (extremely fine)—Coins must show only slight evidence of wear on the highest points of the design, particularly in the hair lines of the portrait on the obverse and the eagle’s feathers and wreath found on most U.S. coins. A trace of mint luster may show in protected areas of the coin’s surface. VF-20 (very fine)—Coins reflect noticeable wear at the fine points in the design, though they may remain sharp overall. Although the details will be slightly smoothed, all lettering and major features must remain sharp. Indian cent: All letters in “LIBERTY” complete but worn; headdress shows considerable flatness, with flat spots on tips of feathers. Lincoln cent: Hair, cheek, jaw and bow-tie details will be worn but clearly separated, and wheat stalks on the reverse will be full, with no weak spots. Buffalo nickel: High spots on hair braid and cheek will be flat but show more detail, and a full horn will remain on the buffalo. Jefferson nickel: Well over half of the major hair detail will remain, and the pillars on Monticello will remain well defined, with triangular roof partially visible. Mercury dime: Hair braid will show some detail, and three-quarters of the details will remain in the feathers. The two diagonal bands on the fasces will show completely, but be worn smooth at the middle, with the vertical lines sharp. 50

50-gradingcm0109.indd 50

Subtle differences in grade can mean a substantial difference in the price of a coin. Learning to grade coins is, therefore, a great asset to any collector.

Standing Liberty quarter: Rounded contour of Liberty’s right leg will be flattened, as will high point of shield. Walking Liberty half dollar: All lines of the skirt will show but be worn on high points, and over half of the feathers will show on eagle. Morgan dollar: Two-thirds of hairlines from forehead to ear must show, and ear will be well defined, while feathers on eagle’s breast may be worn smooth. Barber coins: All seven letters of “LIBERTY” on headband must stand out sharply, while head wreath will be well outlined top to bottom. F-12 (fine)—This is the most widely collected condition. Coins show evidence of moderate to considerable but generally even wear on all high points, though all elements of the design and lettering remain bold. Where “LIBERTY” appears on the headband, it must be fully visible. The rim must be fully raised and sharp on 20th-century coins. VG-8 (very good)—Coins show considerable wear, with most of the points of detail worn nearly smooth. At least three letters must show where “LIBERTY” appears in a headband. On 20th-century coinage, the rim is starting to merge with the lettering. G-4 (good)—In this condition, only the basic design detail remains distinguishable in outline form, with all points of detail being worn smooth. “LIBERTY” has disappeared, and rims are nearly merging with the lettering. About good or fair—A coin identifiable by date and mint but otherwise badly worn, with only parts of the lettering showing. Such coins are of value to collectors only as space fillers and command a significant premium only in cases of extreme scarcity. Proof—Created as collector coins, proof specimens are struck on specially selected planchets with highly polished dies and generally display a mirrorlike finish, sometimes featuring frosted highlight areas. All individual proof valuations listed in this guide are for superb Proof-65 specimens. Prooflike and deep-mirror prooflike—These terms describe the degree of reflectiveness and cameo contrast on well-struck Morgan dollars. A DMPL coin may appear to be a proof at first glance, and a prooflike specimen has a lesser (but still considerable) degree of flash. Bag marks are more noticeable on PL and DMPL Morgans. Some common dates are scarce in this condition.

Collectors who want to study coin grading in greater detail should examine the Official ANA Grading Standards for United States Coins, which provides photos of coins in grades from about good to mint state. Photograde by James F. Ruddy is a handy reference for grading circulated coins. COINS JANUARY 2009

KM# 201 • 3.1100g., Copper-Zinc, 0 oz. • Rev. Designer: Frank Gasparro Notes: MS60 prices are for Brown coins and MS65 prices are for coins that are at least 90% original red. The dates were modified in 1960, 1970 and 1982, resulting in large-date and small-date varieties for those years. The 1972 “doubled die” shows doubling of “In God We Trust.” The 1979-S and 1981-S Type II proofs have a clearer mint mark than the Type I proofs of those years. Some 1982 cents have the predominantly copper composition; others have the predominantly zinc composition. They can be distinguished by weight.

Buffalo Nickel American Bison standing on a line reverse

KM# 192 • 5.0000g., Copper-Nickel, 0 oz., 21.2 mm. • Designer: Felix Schlag Notes: Some 1939 strikes have doubling of the word “Monticello” on the reverse.

KM # 134 • 5.0000g., Copper-Nickel, 0 oz., 21.2 mm. • Designer: James Earle Fraser Notes: In 1913 the reverse design was modified so the ground under the buffalo was represented as a line rather than a mound. On the 1937D 3-legged variety, the buffalo's right front leg is missing, the result of a damaged die.

KM # 37 • 13.4800g.,0.8920 Silver, 0.3866 oz. ASW, 32.5 mm. • Rev. Legend: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Designer: John Reich Notes: There are three varieties of the 1807 strikes. Two are distinguished by the size of the stars on the obverse. The third was struck from a reverse die that had a 5 cut over a 2 in the “50C” denomination. Two varieties of the 1811 are distinguished by the size of the 8 in the date. A third has a period between the 8 and second 1 in the date. One variety of the 1817 has a period between the 1 and 7 in the date. Two varieties of the 1819/18 overdate are distinguished by the size of the 9 in the date. Two varieties of the 1820 are distinguished by the size of the date. On the 1823 varieties, the “broken 3” appears to be almost separated in the middle of the 3 in the date; the “patched 3” has the error repaired; the “ugly 3” has portions of its detail missing. The 1827 “curled-2” and “square-2” varieties are distinguished by the numeral's base -- either curled or square. Among the 1828 varieties, “knobbed 2” and “no knob” refers to whether the upper left serif of the digit is rounded. The 1830 varieties are distinguished by the size of the 0 in the date. The four 1834 varieties are distinguished by the sizes of the stars, date and letters in the inscriptions. The 1836 “50/00” variety was struck from a reverse die that had “50” recut over “00” in the denomination.

KM # 32 • 26.9600g.,0.8920 Silver, 0.7731 oz. ASW, 39-40 mm. • Obv. Legend LIBERTY Rev. Legend: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Designer: Robert Scot Notes: The 1798 “knob 9” variety has a serif on the lower left of the 9 in the date. The 1798 varieties are distinguished by the number of arrows held by the eagle on the reverse and the number of berries on the olive branch. On the 1798 “high8” variety, the 8 in the date is higher than the other numerals. The 1799 varieties are distinguished by the number and positioning of the stars on the obverse and by the size of the berries in the olive branch on the reverse. On the 1700 “irregular date” variety, the first 9 in the date is smaller than the other numerals. Some varieties of the 1800 strikes had letters in the legend cut twice into the dies; as the dies became worn, the letters were touched up. On the 1800 “very wide date, low 8” variety, the spacing between the numerals in the date are wider than other varieties and the 8 is lower than the other numerals. The 1800 “small berries” variety refers to the size of the berries in the olive branch on the reverse. The 1800 “12 arrows” and “10 arrows” varieties refer to the number of arrows held by the eagle. The 1800 “Americai” variety appears to have the faint outline of an “I” after “America” in the reverse legend. The “close” and “wide” varieties of 1802 refer to the amount of space between the numerals in the date. The 1800 large-3 and small-3 varieties are distinguished by the size of the 3 in the date.

Morgan Notes: “65DMPL” values are for coins grading MS-65 deep-mirror prooflike. The 1878 “8 tail feathers” and “7 tail feathers” varieties are distinguished by the number of feathers in the eagle's tail. On the “reverse of 1878” varieties, the top of the top feather in the arrows held by the eagle is straight across and the eagle's breast is concave. On the “reverse of 1879 varieties,” the top feather in the arrows held by the eagle is slanted and the eagle's breast is convex. The 1890-CC “tail-bar variety has a bar extending from the arrow feathers to the wreath on the reverse, the result of a die gouge. The Pittman Act of 1918 authorized the melting of 270 Million pieces of various dates. They were not indivudually recorded.
