Rare Coin Inventory:  Bret Leifer was a public accountant for a number of years. This demonstrated attention to detail comes in handy in the selection of rare coins. Every coin listed is hand picked for lack of marks and eye appeal- that we would want for our own collection. All the other coins we buy end up in the inventories of the usual suspects!

 

Date Description Price
1897S $20 Liberty MS 64 NGC . These just are not found in great numbers. This piece is incredibly well struck and has magnificent bountiful luster. 1 slight mark keeps it from being a higher grade. CAC Approved-  Just a magnificent GOLD type coin- for the collector ! $2,850

This piece came out of the woodwork.  A lovely EXTREMELY important addition to the advanced collection- These original coins are truly RARE and are always valued by collectors. SOLD
1878 $20 Liberty MS 64 by PCGS, CAC Approved. This coin looks as if it is a 1904, not a piece dated in the 1870's. Quite frankly- this coin should not exist. The obverse, is clean with a few scattered marks in the fields.  An extremely original piece which was stored in Pennsylvania for almost a century, with the same family. Most likely, the FINEST Known piece $39,500
1880cc Morgan Silver Dollar, MS 62+ PCGS. CAC A Very Nice white example [save for a bit of crescent toning] of the Carson City Mint.  VERY Clean surfaces with an abundance of white luster. This pice could be housed in an MS 63 holder- $570
1907 High Relief $20. MS 60- The iconic coin which every collector wants at some point in time. NGC. We bought this piece back from a client.

1893-S Morgan Dollar.  VF details- PCGS. An excellent date for that advanced dollar collection. Nice pronounced breast feathers; would most likely grade XF 40 if not for a light cleaning on the obverse, Your search is over! Seems like a super value- $3,850
