Here are just a few of the highlights sold in the March 28 Bullet Auction:

1806 1/2 C Small 6, Stems XF45 NGC. B-1, C-2, R.4. Even chocolate brown patina covers each side. Lightly abraded with a small planchet flake out of the field in front of Liberty's mouth. A bit softly struck on the leaves but relatively well defined on Liberty's hair curls (for the grade).(#1096) (Registry values: P4) REALIZED: $2,990.

1910-D $20 MS65 PCGS. A splendid peach-gold Gem, the eye appeal challenges a higher grade since the obverse is unmarked, as is the reverse field. Only a concealed blemish on the upper back wing prevents classification as an MS66. A formidable addition to an advanced specialized holding.(#9155) (Registry values: N2998) REALIZED: $2,760.

1652 SHILNG Pine Tree Shilling, Large Planchet, XF Details, Scratched, NCS. Noe-11, Crosby 2a-A1, R.4. 65.6 grains. This Large Planchet piece is the well-known "Bushy Tree" variety. It shows a nearly globular, close-branched pine tree in a heavily dotted circle with the blundered spelling MASATVSETS. On the reverse, all the Ns are reversed. The striking details are typically irregular throughout. Slightly off-center on the obverse. Richly toned in gray and sea-green colors. Both sides have numerous wispy pinscratches. Listed on page 24 of the 2005 Guide Book.(#23) REALIZED: $2,535.75.

1924-S 1C MS64 Red NGC. Well struck with lovely tan-red coloration, some light purple-pink highlights on the obverse, and unblemished surfaces that display just one small carbon spot, on the obverse, directly below the B in LIBERTY. Population: 17 in 64, 1 finer (2/05).(#2557) (Registry values: N1793) REALIZED: $2,530.

1907 $20 Arabic Numerals MS65 PCGS. An exceptionally preserved Gem, the sweeping luster and rich apricot color only contribute further to the eye appeal. Not fully struck on the highpoints, as is characteristic of the No Motto type.(#9141) (Registry values: N2998) REALIZED: $2,530.
