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!

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 minuscule 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''. S O L D

1878 7tf Morgan Dollar PCGS MS 63. We were lucky to buy an original roll from a collector who stopped collecting in 1964. These are the real McCoy! White coins with abundant original LUSTER.

Lincoln Cent. The first year of issue & from the San Francisco mint. The iconic piece that was on everyone's want list. This coin, although smudged, is a solid XF with issues. PCGS genuine, XF details. A better than average filler for that board set. A VERY affordable example.

1899 $20 Liberty MS 64 NGC CAC approved.  A dusky original lustrous example of this last year of the 1890's. These usually come like this, as the production for this year created very narly looking examples. A lovely moderately priced type coin. $2,850
1907 $20 Liberty. MS 64 NGC Lovely old coin from a hoard which we paid a ton for. Exceptionally clean, lustrous and original. The high points of the coin are sharp and crisp, the face is clean.
