    This is part of a horde left by my neighbor's late husband. She asked me to help her liquidate three ammo boxes of coins.

    I can find no blemish on either side of this beautiful gold piece.

    I would grade it at MS-64.
    Its worth about $3,000 +/-.

    She is lovely. First year of issue. The series began with a high relief strike that is a very desirable piece. This one is a normal relief…. So danged difficult to judge gold from a photo but it is certainly MS and I believe could fetch upwards of $2500.00 or better.

    What a beauty. No coin should ever be within a foot of a staple. Nothing like a staple scratch to knock 90% off the austetic value. - Edited - this was my father's birth year. Dated 117 years ago. Wow.

    Just going to jump in here before any of the forum rules are broken, you guys should do your negotiation through private messages. :)

    Yes, any and all solicitation to buy/sell should be done via private message, and/or only on the For Sale forum. Such solicitation is not permitted on the regular discussion forums; as such, I have removed one such post here.

    Ouch. Sorry. Great police work. I found the coin interesting because the date caught my eye. I am not "interested" in purchasing any gold in any form at these prices.

    I wish it was back to $700 an ounce. :sorry:

    Or $400, like it was back in the early 2000s. I recall buying a 1908 No Motto Saint in an old green label PCGS MS63 holder for 400 bucks, delivered, back around ‘03 or thereabouts. Wish I’d keep it!
