1895-O $1 MS65+, unseen since issue, tops the Heritage offerings in June Long Beach auction
1895-O $1 MS65+ NGC. CAC.

DALLAS, TX.- An 1895-O Silver Dollar MS65+ NGC CAC from the Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection, tied for the Finest known at CAC, is among the prestigious offerings in Heritage's June 8-12, 2016 Long Beach Expo US Coins Signature® Auction, the official auction of the Long Beach Coin and Collectibles Expo. It will be offered, along with the finest coins in the event in a Premier Session on Thursday, June 9, 2016.

"As a victim of excessive melting and long circulation times," said Rohan, "the 1895-O is the third-rarest Morgan dollar in Mint State grades. This 1895-O $1 was acquired by McClure (1848-1932) at the bank at the time of issue and has not seen the light of day since, making this an extraordinary opportunity for the right collector."

Also offered is the key date 1856-O double eagle, considered the rarest coin struck in the 70-year history of the New Orleans Mint. The coin is graded AU55 by PCGS and is, to Heritage's knowledge, the third-highest graded example in existence.

"Just 2,250 pieces were issued and virtually the entire mintage was released for immediate circulation," said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions. "One sole specimen strike is known in mint state, so collectors looking for the finest examples of this coveted issue will find this coin quite compelling as it's as high an AU coin of this issue as they are likely to come across."

The Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection provides a number of exceptional rarities in the auction: a 1921-S half dollar graded MS66 by NGC is unsurpassed in quality at either major grading service and the first example to be auctioned in a grade this high in more than a decade. As a well-circulated issue, only approximately 200 1921-S halves exist in Mint State, with a majority of those MS64 and lower. This outstanding example of this scare issue is expected to command spirited bidding.

Further highlights include but are not limited to:

• 1806/5 25C MS64+ PCGS CAC

• 1820 25C Small 0 PR64 PCGS Secure CAC, Ex: Norweb: Unique as proof.

• 1838 Gobrecht Dollar Name Omitted PR64 NGC: An unknown example off the market since 1932.

• 1839 Gobrecht Dollar Name Omitted PR63 NGC CAC

• 1852 $1 Original PR66 NGC: Single-finest certified Proof example and one of two-known proofs.

• 1804 $2-1/2 13 Stars Reverse AU50 PCGS

• 1915-S $50 Panama-Pacific Octagonal MS63 NGC
