Stack’s Nashville Coin Auction Preview

On May 21, 2010, Stack’s will present the Nashville Sale in conjunction with the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Nashville Expo that will be held on May 20-22. The sale will feature U.S. coins and will also present the Q. David Bowers Reference Collection of Confederate States of America bonds. Rarities abound, as do other interesting and more affordable pieces.

U.S. coins begin the sale, and Colonial and early Federal coins get things rolling. Half cents feature an impressive 1793 C-3 example in MS-60 BN (NGC), a rich chestnut brown coin with smooth, evenly struck surfaces. Large cents include a decent example of the popular 1793 Chain cent that retains the details of an EF-45 coin, though some surface granularity is noted. This coin represents a good chance to acquire a sharp 1793 Chain cent at a much more affordable level than otherwise encountered! Other large cent rarities include a Fair-2 (PCGS) (CAC) example of the famous 1794 Sheldon-48 Starred Reverse example. One of the most popular and desirable varieties of early large cents, owning a Starred Reverse in any grade is a mark of distinction for any large cent collector. The present example is another chance for the serious collector to affordably add a significant rarity to their cabinet!

Minor coinage presents several beautiful Indian Head cents, the first a Gem 1867 example, a lovely representative of this semi-key date graded MS-65 RD by PCGS. The second coin is a gorgeous super Gem 1883 example in MS-67 RD (NGC), the finest certified by NGC in any color designation. Three cent nickels feature a splendid Gem Cameo Proof 1865 example, a coin tied for the finest certified by NGC in the lofty grade of Proof-67 Cameo.

U.S. nickels are highlighted by an exceptional 1919-S in the impressive grade of MS-66 (NGC). With none certified as finer, this important coin is surely destined for an advanced cabinet. Dimes do not disappoint either, and early issues come to the fore in this sale. A Choice Uncirculated 1796 JR-6 example graded MS-63 by NGC is a notable specimen, as is a splendid 1805 JR-2 4 Berries example. This amazing coin exhibits beautiful lustre and is essentially mark-free and, in the grade of MS-66 (NGC), will be a fabulous addition to any collection of high quality coins. (more…)
