1824 NG-M Central American Republic 8 Reales AU50, cleaned
Grade: 50 cleaned
Catalog #: KM-4
Description: SOLD: It's too bad this coin was cleaned in the past, as it is as nearly fully struck as they come. There is light toning remaining around the devices which still gives the coin a decent appearance. The cleaning mostly shows on the reverse fields.
Description: ON HOLD: An evenly worn specimen that can be identified by the mintmark and the 7 in the date boldly showing. The reverse is stronger at the rims. Otherwise, the coin is a pleasing dark silver and without any marks or abrasions.
Description: ON HOLD: Light orange toning over glowing prooflike surfaces. Well struck with a full snake and some hairlines that limited the grade, but not the eye appeal. Just back from PCGS and years in my safe deposit box!
Description: ON HOLD: An original coin with light russet fields some bluish rim toning.
Description: A blazing white coin fresh from an original roll with an above average strike
Description: SOLD: D/D south; A very minor repunching visible as a separation at the top left corner of the D. A nice bright white coin ion an old blue holder with the series number.
Description: SOLD: FS-012.4; EDS; A scarce RPM and an undergraded coin. An EF45 doesn't have full cartwheel lustre like this one. I bought it as an AU55. Pop=1 in EF455.
Description: SOLD: A nice white coin with a mintmark doubled to the lower right.
Description: Original color, 3/4 horn, clear top bar 3. See pictures, the 3 is very clear.

About Dr. Eugene Bruder
Like many collectors, I started collecting coins as a 12 year old in 1959 when the Lincoln Cent had a change in design. I was quickly hooked, and by my later teenage years I was collecting Liberty Seated proofs and some Bust coinage. I was also entranced by postage stamps, enjoying the intricate engravings on the early issues of the US and Canada. I delivered three paper routes daily in order to have enough money to buy coins and stamps.
College caused me to have to dispose of my collections in order to pay for school. After my internship in Hawaii, where I met my wife Diann, I again picked up the collecting bug while deployed in the Army in Alaska. Coins and stamps kept me busy as a hobby until I moved to California in 1986, whereupon I began dealing in coins part time by attending local coin shows.Read More
