HK9 NGC MS-63. From the 1860 Heenan Sayers Boxing bout. The fight took place in England. The medals were minted in New York. Dark chocolate brown.

$990

HK10b NGC MS-63. Matching piece to the 1860 Heenan Sayers Boxing bout. Nice even brown toning. From the Bill Weber auction held in Reno, Nevada, December 2008.

$990

HK83 NGC MS-65 Brown. Second highest graded by NGC. Hard to find this nice.

$490

HK119a NGC MS-65 Brown. Battle of Saratoga circa 1877. Nice even brown tone with a slight reddish hue. An attractive example. NGC has graded 8 of these, three in MS-65(of which this is one), and one higher in MS-67.

$470

HK125 NGC MS-66 Prooflike. One of the few pieces graded this high by NGC. Attractive white metal.

$875

HK140 NGC MS-63. I am not sure why this did not get a proof-like designation. My images do not show it, but the cameo effect is obvious. A nice MS-63 with absolutely no signs of improper cleaning.

$345

Baker-A1810A NGC MS-64 Brown. Unlisted in Baker in bronze and quite rare as such. In white metal it is more common and usually found holed. Dies by George Morgan of the U.S. mint.

$600

HK153 NGC MS-61 Proof-like. This is a really nice piece except for some field dings to the left of DEDICATED on the reverse. The obverse is MS65 or better. NGC tends to be pretty tough on white metal pieces. Seems to me an MS-62 or even MS-63 grade would have been more appropriate.

$180

HK172 NGC AU-55. Rarer than HK171 and HK173. Nice collectible grade.

$75

HK178 NGC MS-63. World Columbian palace souvenir medal showing the Mines and Mining Building. Nice for the grade with some original streaky toning on the field of the building side that does not show in my images.

$320

HK 218 NGC MS-64 Deep Mirror Proof-like. This is one of three of these designated as Deep Mirror Proof-like. Highly reflective. The dies are somewhat rotated.

$420

HK299 NGC MS-63. Nice bright unc. Die polish marks noted above and to the right of Jeffersons head. Official U.S. mint medal from the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair.

$140

HK302 NGC MS-67. Official U.S. mint medal from the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair. None graded higher.

$600

HK 305 NGC MS-63. The round variety is hard to find in this condition. A decent example with partial luster.

$360

HK 353 NGC MS-65. Official U. S. mint medal from the 1909 Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition. Attractive luster with lightly tarnished areas here and there. NGC has graded a total of ten in MS-65 with only one higher in MS-67.

$530

HK 365 NGC MS-62. Nice piece for the grade.

$125

HK 517 NGC MS-66: NGC shows seventeen of these in their census. This is one of three highest graded.

$310

HK 574 NGC MS-65. Full bright luster. Nice medal. Only two graded higher.

$160

HK 591 NGC MS-63 Proof-like. Of five graded by NGC, this is the highest, and only one of two graded proof-like.

$880

HK667 NGC MS-64. A couple of small dark spots probably keep this piece from a higher grade. Designed by Daniel Chester French.

$460

Unlisted HK, NGC MS-65 Brown. 37.7mm. Centennial Anniversary Of Allegheny Co. Pa. Sep. 24-26 1888. Showing old and new courthouses. I have maybe seen three or four of these in bronze over the years, and one was holed. Somewhat more common in white metal and usually holed. Nice even brown surfaces with a slight reddish hue. Very nice. Quite rare in bronze. Goes between HK614 and HK615 in HK.

$520

Unlisted HK, NGC MS-64 Brown. 44.5mm. Rulau Phl 45. I do not know why this did not get a higher grade. Nice chocolate brown. No high point rub. Very nice. I have seen a number of these over the years, so not terribly rare, but not common either. Attractive design. Excellent workmanship. The same exposition as HK644.

$380

HK 812b NGC MS-63 DPL. Extremely rare Thomas Elder so called dollar. Delorey 61. Mintage of five which is probably accurate. There is no question that this is HK812b(brass). When I purchased this piece it had been lacquered. I recently had NCS remove the lacquer prior to encapsulating. For the sake of accuracy, there is a very short 1 1/2mm wormy-like depression/flaw on the blank side of this piece that does not show up very well in my photo. It looks to me as if it might have been caused by a tiny piece of debris at the time of striking. There is some exceedingly light hair lining here and there, but only barely noticeable under magnification. A grade of MS-64 would not have been unreasonable. Highly reflective surfaces.

$4200

Unlisted HK, NGC MS-63 DPL. 37.7mm. Garfield Tomb Dedicated May 30, 1890. Rare to very rare in both bronze or white metal, but harder to find unholed in white metal. Goes after HK758 in HK.

$240

Days of 49 Blunt 4 Imitation Slug, NGC MS-65. This is the rarer blunt 4 variety in high grade. From the 2008 Bill Weber auction. Attractive. Hard to find this nice.

$575
