Mint State Münster 6 Ducats

Lovely deep orange-gold patina and sharply struck; minimal surface hairlines account for the grade but in our opinion this piece is very conservatively graded. $85,000.



Finest Known 1839 Proof Young Head Crown

1054034: Great Britain. Victoria. (Queen, 1837-1901). 1839 AR Crown. PCGS PR67 Cameo. Edge: Plain. VICTORIA DEI GRATIA. Head left / BRITANNIARUM REGIBA FID: DEF:. Crowned arms within branches. KM 741; SCBC-3882; ESC-279; Bull 2560. Superb and exceptional, almost certainly the finest surviving example of the type and the sole PR67 graded at both PCGS and NGC (the next highest graded example at PCGS is PR65 Cameo). $115,000.
