Introduction by Gerry Fortin

Table of Contents

Welcome to the web-book resource for Liberty Seated Dime varieties and Gerry Fortin Rare Coins; desirable coins for Seated and Bust collectors.

Gerry Fortin has been collecting and researching Liberty Seated Dime since 1988 and launched his Liberty Seated Dimes - Die Varieties, 1837 - 1891 web-book during 2004. The web-book expanded die variety knowledge beyond the efforts of Kamal Ahwash and Brian Greer in their respective numismatic research guides. Contained within the Fortin web-book is a wealth of new information about Liberty Seated Dime die varieties, die states and rarity coupled with a presentation format using exceptional photography.

You are free to link to web-book content for numismatic purposes, while written content, images, rarity estimates and pricing guides are copyrighted by the author and must be accurately referenced as to the source in other paper or online publications.

What's New?

November 26: The Open Registry has important updates. The Hoosier Seated Quarter Business set is now 56% CAC approved and Hoosier also adds Top 25 Varieties set. More consignments are arriving daily. Happy Thanksgiving to GFRC customers, consignors and blog readers!

November 25: John Okerson updates multiple sets in the Open Registry. GFRC-Coins (Jim Poston) consignment has arrived. Lots of new PCGS Seated dimes were posted today on price lists but weather DID NOT allow any photography. Email me if wanting first right of refusal on a piece.

November 23: Back from Westford, MA and had good buying show. Ernie Botte does incredible job promoting shows in the Northeast. Also, Tim Cook shares an important Top 100 set update as he approaches 100% completion....almost there except for 1874 Polished Arrows as key date.

November 20: Roger Terry adds his Liberty Seated half dollar set to the open registry. All pieces are certified with CAC approval being prominent.

November 17: The author recently discovered an eighth 1861 Type I obverse die at the Denver Coin Expo (October 2014). This new die pair is listed as 1861 Type 1 F-110 and has a distinctive date punch that is positioned well right of other 1861 obverse dies.

November 15: The Brier Creek Liberty Seated quarter collections are updated or created in the Open Registry. This is another advanced collector building a top rated date/mintmark set. The CC, O and SF subsets are also posted and I took opportunity to align Open Registry formats for these Seated quarter subsets. Also John Okerson updates his Seated Quarter set on the Registry.

November 13: John Okerson submits major update to his Capped Bust Half Dime Ultimate set in the Open Registry and now stands at 58% completion.

Welcome to the definitive resource for Estes Model Rocketry Kit collectors.

Estes Model Rocket Kit Collecting Guide

Individual kit database pages are updated and reflect eBay sales from February 2008 through June 2011. Recorded pricing observation in the database now stands at 9680 entries. All updated kit prices and totals are black colored. Due to a very busy 2011 business schedule, I had no choice but to place the Estes Kit Database on hold. I did manage to collect eBay kit pricing into the June 2011 timeframe and those prices are published. There are a number of new kit variety listings so checking the revised database could be worthwhile for serious collectors.

What's New?

May 5: Starting to update eBay pricing results in all three databases for the March-May 2013 timeframe. This update will be done by end of day May 6. My apology for not paying attention to the Estes databases for a long period of time. On average, it appears prices for original and problem free Estes kits are climbing.

February 5: Added K-45 1970 and 1971 Astron Beta, 1340 Scud B and 1367 Vindicator individual kit description pages. Added K-23 Big Bertha pictorial guide page.

January 6: Added rare K Kit group (X-Ray, Beta, Apogee II, Big Bertha, Thor Agena) with pre Damon yellow hang tags and countdown hang tags to the database and pictorial guide. I won the X-Ray and Apogee II kit and should have big higher for the Beta kit. This was a once in several year opportunity to acquire early K Kits in original condition.

The pictorial pages also provide links into kit description pages inside the database. To my knowledge, this Estes database is becoming the most comprehensive study of Estes model rocket kit packaging and artwork varieties ever assembled.
