Lots of rare dates exist with all the early coins, before 1834, bringing thousands of dollars in even well worn conditions. Two and a Half Dollar Gold Coins are an exciting segment of the U.S. Gold market!
An attractive, well struck, borderline uncirculated example of this early Classic Head type.
Classic Head. Script 8.
Well detailed for a Dahlonega Mint gold coin and flashy for the grade. Just 17,332 minted.
A pleasing example of this scarce date. Only 19,460 minted.
Well struck with nice lustrous surfaces and just a touch of wear. Only 15,784 minted.
Though not the famous CAL variety, the regular 1848 $2 1/2 is a rarity in its own right with a mintage of just 6,500 pieces. This example is well struck with nice peach-gold luster. Scattered marks define the grade but they are relatively minor leaving this beauty with very nice eye appeal. Only 4 graded higher at PCGS.
Nice strike with clean surfaces and a trace of mint luster. Only 9,148 minted.
A better date with just 84,000 minted.
Just a trace of wear on this nearly mint state New Orleans mint gold piece.
"Unc. details, improperly cleaned." A very scarce date with just 9,772 minted. Only 9 coins graded mint state at NGC and 5 at PCGS. And some of these are probably the same coins being re-graded or crossed over! With a PCGS or NGC-60 coin having a value of $12,000.+, this very attractive, lightly cleaned, uncirculated '52-C should be an excellent value at our asking price!
Considerable luster remains on this popular 'O' mint gold coin.
An attractive coin from the popular New Orleans mint.
Nice satiny luster and a solid strike. Premium quality for the grade.
A very scarce date with a mintage of just 3,677. This example has nice color with a trace of luster. The obverse is well struck and the reverse is typical for the date with some weakness on the lower half of the eagle. Fewer than 150 graded at PCGS and NGC combined and that number certainly includes duplicate submissions. A rare coin in desirable condition!
Very pleasing with considerable yellow-gold luster. A very tough date with a mere 21,000 coins minted.
Well struck with a trace of mint luster. Only 9,056 minted.
Type-2. (New Reverse). Flashy mint luster and an excellent strike.
New Reverse. A well struck, flashy example of this popular Civil War era date.
New Reverse. Flashy luster with a sharp strike, no spots and only a few very minor marks. Very nearly MS-65 quality!
Lustrous and well detailed with just a touch of wear. A scarce date with just 28,000 minted and most surviving examples being well worn.
