Another item not to be missed is an important 1776 Continental Dollar certified by NGC. Other notable items available for live online bidding include:
• Lot 165: 1808/7 $5 Capped Draped Bust: PCGS graded MS61, Simply wonderful for the assigned grade! The conservative MS61 designation by PCGS may have been influenced the by thick, original skin which slightly mutes the lustrous surfaces. The strike details are bold throughout on this apricot-gold specimen and few would deny that this is an under-graded early half eagle. A premium quality piece in every regard (PCGS # 8103)
• Lot 177: 1803 $10 Capped Bust. Small reverse stars. ANACS graded EF45, Housed in an early generation, small ANACS holder. A surprising amount of original surfaces are retained in the protected areas of this conservatively graded--perhaps under-graded--early eagle. A few small adjustment marks are observed on Liberty's face, which is common to the issue. The coloration is a blend of brownish-purple over orange-gold surfaces, and the resulting eye appeal is memorable (PCGS # 8565)
• Lot 269: 21 ct Diamond 14kt 36.30 Gram Tennis Necklace: This is a 14 kt White Gold Diamond Tennis Necklace With a Total Weight of 36.30 Grams. The Necklace contains 21 ct Diamond. The Necklace Measures 16 inches
• Lot 293: 13.90 ct Diamond Emerald 18kt 15.80 Gram Ring: This is 18 kt White Gold Diamond Emerald Ring with a Total Weight of 15.80 Grams. The Ring contains a Total of 13.90 ct Diamond Emerald
