Very Rare Mint State 1969-S Doubled Die Obverse Cent

Very Rare Mint State 1969-S Doubled Die Obverse Cent

By Greg Cohen, Professional Numismatist & Consignment Director, U.S. & World Coins

The 1969-S Doubled Die cent is one of the classic modern U.S. Mint rarities, indeed among the rarest of all 20th century U.S. coins. It created huge waves in the numismatic marketplace, when in 1970, two examples were discovered independently of each other by Cecil Moorhouse and Bill Hudson and were reported on the cover of the July 8, 1970, Coin World.

Scarce 1980 Archers Piefort 300 Yuan

Scarce 1980 Archers Piefort 300 Yuan

By Greg Cohen, Professional Numismatist & Consignment Director, U.S. & World Coins and Chris Chatigny, Numismatist & Cataloger

Among the early scarcities of the modern commemorative China mint issues are the Piefort gold issues of the 1980 Olympiad. From a mintage of only 500 pieces, these were already a scarcity at the time of mintage, and remain a tangible reminder of the epic Olympic games of that year. The specimen being offered in our sale is graded Proof-69 Deep Cameo by PCGS and is accompanied by the original box and certificate.
