OK, I'll give out my sleeper: middle-grade (61 - 64) Proof 1936 Washington quarters. It's the lowest mintage coin from when the proof series was restarted, and they show up for sale far less frequently than the other coins. And they haven't gotten outrageous in price yet!

There is an article in the July Coin Values about Barber Half Dollars. One of the discussion points is in regards to the 1914 Barber Half Dollar. At the MS-64 grade the price/value has not increased for about two years. It has a low mintage of only 124,610 and if 40 times less common than the 1899 which along with other less rare dates, has increased in value over these two years. They do mention that it is hard to say for sure if and when a "sleeper" may rise in value but they make a good point in that it is hard to believe that buying the highest quality, lowest mintage coin you can afford would do you any harm. (of course the value they list is $3500.00) They looked at the same Barber Half Dollars three years ago and none of them have lost any value.


Any thoughts?

All bust halves in all grades especially MS 65 or over

(edited to add, all 1820 dates and overdates of that series, seriously under-rated)

All the $50 RED Federal Reserve Notes in any grade.
