An iconic work from the artists first, pioneering foray into the medium of silkscreen painting, Two Dollar Bills (Back) (40 Two Dollar Bills in Green) from 1962 encapsulates the extraordinary ability to appropriate, subvert, and reinvent the motifs of consumer culture which defines the inimitable Pop vernacular of Andy Warhol. Executed in two columns of eye-popping green, the mechanical seriality of the present work evokes the quotidian process by which printed money is mass-produced in American
[ COINS ] High Relief Double Eagles 1907 Ultra High Relief, $20 Lettered Edge PR69 PCGS. While the sun never set on the British flag in the 19th century, the 20th century was definitely The American Century. After the assassination of William McKinley in 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt typified the American spirit: young, vibrant, and energetic. Roosevelt's interest in the appearance of America's coinage is not coincidental, as he had written an essay some 20 years previously on the coin

[ COINS ] Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles 1927-D $20 MS67 PCGS. As we previously indicated in the introductory section to the 1927-D double eagle, this issue is considered to be the rarest U.S. gold coin of the 20th century, and is the rarest coin of any denomination or metal from this century. As we also wrote, fewer than 12 pieces are known in all grades, and PCGS and NGC have certified a total of ten examples, some of which may be resubmissions. Auction appearances of this issue are few--on
[ US Silver Dollar Coins ] Original 1804 Silver Dollar. Class I. Very Choice Brilliant Proof. PCGS PR64. Gorgeous iridescent blue and rich rose colors wreath both sides of this magnificent and historic coin. The coin exhibits an amazing sharpness of detail.

The stars that surround her head are all bold and clear. They have s
[ Coins ] Proof High Relief Double Eagles 1907 Ultra High Relief $20 Lettered Edge PR68 PCGS. Among American coin collectors, the Saint- Gaudens Ultra (or Extremely) High Relief double eagle coin may be the most recognized coin ever produced. There are other great rarities of outstanding reputation, but no other combines the beauty, rarity, and the story of collaboration between President Theodore Roosevelt and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Theodore Roosevelt became President after the assassination
[ US Gold Dollars (Coins) ] 1908 No Motto, 1922, 1924, 1927, 1928. Athird assemblage of these dates. Brilliant Uncirculated. The third enjoys claims to the Choice category. The fourth is fully Choice, but for some barely visible hairlines. 5 pieces.
[ Coins ] Proof Liberty Eagles 1839/8 $10 Type of 1838 PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. This is an amazing opportunity for the advanced collector, the connoisseur of early American gold coinage, or the numismatist who appreciates the combination of quality and rarity. This masterpiece is the finest of just three proofs known, and one of just two examples available to collectors. Three additional proofs are known for the 1838 eagle, bringing the total population to six coins for this first design type. On

The nearest runner up is the About Uncirculated Norweb coin.

The obverse and reverse fields are brightly reflective and prooflike, with full prooflike ``flash'' in the fields. Smal
[ COINS ] Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles 1921 $20 MS66 PCGS. Ex: Crawford. After the end of The Great War, there was a general deterioration of economic conditions in the United States. This overall deterioration was evident by the spring of 1920. Programs and procedures put in place during the war had in many instances been removed or modified after the armistice, which resulted in a certain amount of economic dislocation. In particular, U.S. manufacturers had built up large inventories of go
[ Dimes ] [ COINS ] 65 PCGS 4805 1894-S S 10C 1894-S 10C PR65 PCGS. As one of the Big Three of American numismatics, along with the 1913 Liberty nickel and the 1804 silver dollar, acquisition of this rarity has long been regarded as a pinnacle of collecting. Of these three rarities, only the 1894-S dime was officially listed in Mint Reports at the time of issue. This is one of the finest known 1894-S Barber dimes, and is the single most important example from a historical perspective. Only t

When this coin was last offered for sale at public auction more than seven years ago, David Akers said: A magnificent, stunning coin which, in my opinion, is the premier coin in the entire Pittman Collection. It is indeed a magnificent piece, and in our opinion, the only coins that rival this piece in sheer numismatic interest in this current sale are the two Brasher doubloons As a date, the 1

[ COINS ] Proof Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles 1907 $20 Small Edge Lettering PR68 PCGS. Technically a pattern, but unrecognized as such to date, the Small and Large Edge Arabic Numerals twenties are experimental coins that were struck in very limited numbers (only three Small Letters are known). Contrary to popular belief, it appears that the lowered relief Small Edge Letter proof twenty was actually struck before the unique Large Edge Letter proof. We base this opinion on direct observation of
[ Silver Dollars - Coins - United States of America ] 1885 Trade Dollar. Brilliant Proof, with strong claims to Choice. Of the Highest Rarity: one of only 5 known. The Debut Specimen, this being the first one ever offered for sale at auction, way back in 1913. At that time, it was famous collector H.O. Granberg's personal specimen. In 1950, famous old time dealer B. Max Mehl described this coin as ``Perfect brilliant Proof gem.'' The coin has brightly reflective, full deep mirror fields with bl

The next finest examples grade MS63, and the population goes downward from there.

There are certainly less than 10 true Mint State examples of this issue still in existence today. In

The obverse has the Liberty Head from the regular issue double eagle, although it does not appear to be the Type Three hub used for regular issue pieces. The standard diagonal die line from the hair to the left side of Y is not present, as it is on all regular issue pieces of the third design. The legend is a variation of the legend on the four dollar stella: * 30 * G * 1.5 * S * 3.5 * C * 3
[ COINS ] Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles 1921 $20 MS65 PCGS. The absolute and condition rarity of the 1921 double eagle is beyond question in the minds of specialists in this series. An AU example is enough to raise the eyebrows of collectors, and most Uncirculated pieces are tightly held in major collections. The question of how this coin compares to the above MS66 is inevitable. The fact is, there is very little difference in the technical preservation or mint luster between the two pieces.
[ Numismatic Coins ] 61 NGC 6851 1794 S$1 1794 $1 MS61 NGC. Bass Collection. The late Jack Collins made a special study of 1794 dollars and traced their pedigrees for many years. Jack was a classic example of a perfectionist. The non-publication of his manuscript also illustrates the bind many numismatic authors find themselves in: should the writer publish before the last word has been spoken or written on the subject, or should he go ahead and publish, knowing that others will revise or correc

Both sides have deeply mirrored fields with hints of satiny mint frost on the devices. All of the design elements on each side are especially sharp, including the hair details and stars on the obverse, and the feather and claw details on the reverse. A few faint hairlines and tiny contact marks are evident on each side, kee
A stunning example. A full, remarkably sharp strike in every respect: the hairs over Libertys ear are well-delineated, and the eagles feathers are full; the beading is crisp and distinct. Struck from dies so fresh that the mint engravers original die polish striae can be seen under magnification. Apart from a faint pair of lines in front of Libertys profile, both the obverse and reverse fields and devices are effectively unblemished, even under significant magnification. A thin obverse die crack
An absolutely spectacular coin. The strike is sharp, with rich detail evident on both sides from the centers to the borders. Fully lustrous, with splendid cartwheel effect. A vibrant coin, overlaid with a lovely light, creamy gold hue, which deepens subtly toward the area near the date. The surfaces are nearly perfect and unblemished regardless of how the light plays on them. An extraordinary coin in every sense.\nFORMERLY IN THE JACK LEE COLLECTION Although the 1884-S had a healthy mint run and
