    Love the CAL commemorative, Humbert eagle and territorial pieces in general. Very historic part of America!

    I agree. I haven't seen an 1848 CAL in a long time. Excellent piece.

    'It is a small world after all.' I attended this auction. During a lot viewing session, a collector-friend, who is a member of this forum, brought this exact same coin to my attention. I do not know if that forum member wishes for me to mention his name here. He was raving about this coin. I agree that it is really neat and certainly one of the best of its type.

    Also, I have known the consignor for many years. I have had many long conversations with him about gold coins. There are few individuals who are more emotional and enthusiastic about rare gold coins.

    Although territorials and other pioneer gold tend to be expensive, it is not that difficult to build a type set of U.S. $10 gold coins:

    What an awesome thread. I love the gold CAL, but my favorite piece has got to be the 1849 silver $5 Mass & CA!

    Wow, some truly fascinating coins/pieces of American history in here. I'm adding this thread to my web browsers bookmarked "Coin Threads-Box of 20."

  • topstuftopstuf Posts: 14,803 ✭✭✭✭✭

    What I like about these coins is how they pretty much fully relate to a period in history.
    That's something that's hard to do with official US coinage.
