  • I shared this on my Instagram @holder.ed_coins but wanted to share it here too. I’ve had these amazing signed and numbered (both 1/100) prints from the very talented Robert.Julian for a while, and I finally got around to getting them framed! I kept it simple to keep the emphasis on the incredible art, and I’m really thrilled with how they came out! I like to take credit for pushing him to do this type, 1861-O “CSA Obverse” Half Dollar, for his representation of the Seated Liberty type, so it was a must for me to get some of his artwork and to prominently display it (finally, haha). He does his work entirely with colored pencils (which is crazy but amazing to me), and he uses the finest paper, ink, and printer to create his limited edition prints. For more information about his work and to view all his products, you can go to his website at www.robertjulianna.com or reach out to him directly on here or on Facebook. He also does custom work, but I know he has a waitlist right now; but if you have a special/sentimental coin and can wait, I know you won’t be disappointed with his art. I think he may even offer framing now, so he’s a one stop shop!

    In case you didn’t know that I’m a fan of the Confederate 1861-O Seated Liberty Half Dollar varieties (particularly the ones that came from the SS Republic shipwreck) or seen one of my many previous posts about them or selling them, I just wanted to share a brief description about them. For the shipwrecked examples, they were onboard the SS Republic when it sank off the coast of Georgia in 1865 and stayed on the bottom of the ocean until the shipwreck was discovered in 2003. They were also struck when the New Orleans Mint was under Confederate control which technically makes them CSA coins. These in particular were struck with the same obverse die that struck the four known CSA half dollars, making them the closest thing most collectors will ever get to owning an actual CSA coin. That’s a lot of history just in one coin, and I think they’re a great value too! If you’re ever in the market for one, I almost always have an example available so feel free to reach out to me any time!
