Pair of 1794 Dollars Lead Heritage's May 2008 Long Beach Auction A pair of 1794 silver dollars and three Continental dollars are among the rarities included in the catalog for the Official Auction of the May 2008 Long Beach Coin Expo.
The 1871-CC is generally considered the second rarest Carson City $20, in overall rarity and condition rarity.
Lot 3629: 1872-CC double eagle, MS60 NGC.
The 1872-CC is scarce in all grades, and extremely rare in uncirculated grades.
Lot 3763: 1916-S double eagle, MS67 NGC.
The 1916-S is rare as an MS67; none have been certified finer.
Lot 3779: 1927-S double eagle, MS62 NGC.
Of the more than 3.1 million pieces recorded by the San Francisco Mint for the 1927-S $20, only 168 Mint State pieces have been certified in all grades at NGC and PCGS combined.
Lot 3785: (1837-42) C. Bechtler half eagle, 134G, With Star, MS63 NGC. K-20, R.4. This variety is plentiful and widely available in better grades, making it a favorite of both type and specialty collectors.
A remarkable Mint State example with few peers among PCGS certified examples.
Lot 3847: Silver Die Trial of 1864 Liberty Round 50 Cent, BG-1016a, MS62 NGC, R.8
This is one of perhaps two Mint State pieces known; this is NOT the BG-1016A, which has the same obverse as BG-1016, but a BG-1016a, the lowercase "a" signifying a regular BG-1016 but struck in silver.
