Lot 1264
1914-D. NGC graded MS-64+. CAC Approved. Delicately toned, nice and frosty throughout. Uncommonly smooth with fully metallic, golden-rose features for this design and Mint. The pressure transmitted from the die to the blank reveals itself in sharply impressed warbonnet feathers and full feathers on the eagle. Pop 45; 43 finer with 42 in 65, 1 in 67 (PCGS # 7947) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.

Lot 1265
1929. PCGS graded MS-65 PQ. Rich golden toning. The satin-like gleam of golden-colored originality is safe and sound from most abrasions of measurable size. Struck with systematic exactness throughout, again confirming the Gem status, there is no need to ignore the central part of the headdress where a somewhat soft feather impression is often left by the dies. This coin is decidedly bold in the centers. Pop 132; 5 finer, 1 in 65+, 3 in 66, 1 in 67 (PCGS # 7953) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,300.

Lot 1268
United States, Unique $2 1/2 Gold Coin Encased in Silver? with Hebrew Inscriptions. The 1913 Quarter Eagle had circulated for a while before someone used it as part of a unique memento.

The obverse inscription is paraphrased from the Hebrew liturgy. At the end of the Amida/Shmona Esrey, this prayer appears. It says (Indian side, starting at top 2 oclock outside) "Send peace, goodness, and blessing, grace and kindness" (that last part is identical to the liturgy, but then it diverges) "wealth and honor, and lucky life to her son" (the last piece can be translated a number of ways). Inside at top is the name, "to Hayim ben Mordekhay." This side is entirely in Hebrew.

The other side is in Yiddish, though some of the words are taken from the Hebrew rather than the German. "Luck Happiness Joy Prosperity Blessing Health Livelihood Protection (?)." Inside at top is also the name, "for me Hayim ben Mordekhay."

Unique and highly desirable.
Estimated Value $300 - 400.
