Prices Rising for Better Date Bust Type
June 26, 2017
Stack’s Bowers Galleries hosted the official auction for the just completed Whitman Baltimore Expo. For Indian and Lincoln Cent collectors there was a long list of high-grade better dates that should improve some Registry collections. Many of these cents are CAC approved. There was also quite a few Mint State Barber Dimes and Quarters for the set collectors.
A coin once part of the Queller Family Collection, the 1801 Draped Bust Half Dollar in PCGS MS60 brought $70,500. This is the only MS60 certified by either service and there are only four certified in higher grades with MS64 the highest.

Dealers remain in discount mode for most common coins and premiums continue to drop on generic U.S. Gold coins. With metals down the last couple of weeks there does not seem to be a turnaround coming any time soon; Gold is currently down to $1,245.50 and Silver is $16.55; Platinum is $916.90.
Most common coins are being discounted but there are many better dates that are attracting collectors. Bust Half Dollars in MS63 and higher are in demand as long as they are original with no distractive toning.
- The 1819/8 Bust Half Dollar in MS64 is up to $7,850 Market; both the Small 9 and the Large 9 have a total of just 35 coins certified by the grading services in MS64, five having the + designation. There are only 18 coins grading higher.
- The 1829 Bust Half Dollar may be considered a common date but in MS65 it becomes more difficult to find with attractive toning; this week it is up to $6,825. There are 42 certified in MS65 with six additional coins holding the + designation.
