Posts Tagged ‘1796 No Pole variety’

On Sunday, September 14th, 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA, Ira and Larry Goldberg will be auctioning The Ray Rouse Collection of United States Half Cents.  There are a number of great opportunities for acquiring some highly desirable Half Cents to add to your exiting investment portfolio

The first one to get my attention was lot 31, a 1796 C-1 (R6) in Fine 15+.  This is the No Pole variety pushing a grade of VF 20.  This coin was plated in the Gilbert half cent book and in Wayte Raymond’s standard catalogue to illustrate the No Pole variety.  This coin comes with a long distinguished provenance.  Wonderful example.

A second desirable Half Cent, lot 32, is another 1796 issue, this time the C-2, an R4 in VF 30.  This issue is the With Pole variety.   It also comes with an impressive provenance.

Still another treasure is found in lot 39, an 1802/0, C-1 R6 Over  date, 2 over 0, reverse of the 1800.  Graded at VG 10. 

This is going to be a very strong and exciting auction.  Visit Goldberg’s website for their listing of other rarities
