1888 Three-Dollar Gold Piece. MS-64 (PCGS). 1855-C Liberty Half Eagle. Winter Variety 1 (23-J), the only known dies. AU-53 (PCGS). Outstanding luster for this date with a planchet of bright yellow-gold and hint of greenish iridescence at the rims. Boldly struck on the devices and the surfaces are mint-fresh and show scarcely more than tiny nicks from bag jingling. Impressive quality for the numismatist.
