Rare Dollar Coinage and Historical Postal Collectibles Come to Sale with MYNT AuctionsApr 29, 2022 11:59 EDT
The “Liberty Seated” design was the longest-running motif in the history of United States coinage. Christian Gobrecht, the third Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, executed the design based on the sketches by the well-known portraitist Thomas Sully. An 1840 Half Dollar coin with the Liberty Seated motif is a key highlight of the upcoming MYNT Auctions sale. This “no motto above eagle” sub-variety (1839-1853) is regarded as one of the rarest in the coinage series. It features the Goddess of Liberty seated upon a rock holding a pole with a phrygian cap in her left hand. Her right hand rests on a striped shield inscribed with “Liberty.” Another exceptionally unique coin is the 1879-CC $1 Morgan Dollar GSA Hoard. Named after George T. Morgan, the United States Mint Assistant Engraver, it was the first standard silver dollar struck since the introduction of the Coinage Act of 1873.
A rare airmail cover postmarked “Oct. 8-13-1923” also leads the collectibles listings. The vintage cover was carried from Lympne to Hastingleigh by the Motor Glider, manufactured by the erstwhile Air Navigation and Engineering Co.
