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. Content is continually updated based on collector discoveries and submissions for attribution and verification.

I hope you enjoy this online numismatic adventure!

May 3: The May E-Gobrecht and April E-Gobrecht issues are finally posted at the LSCC link. My apology for the delayed posting as GFRC workload is so time consuming these days. The May issue is the 136th E-Gobrecht edition prepared by Editor, Bill Bugert and his amazing LSCC staff of monthly writers.

April 10: The GFRC office migration from Florida to Maine went without incident and we are up and running already. Shipments will start on Tuesday as checks arrive in Monday's mail. There are still 50+ coins to add to the price list this week. Please check back often.

March 30: I'm deeply saddened this morning to announce that Ed Sims passed late week. Ed Sims was the the owner of the Central California Collection and a great numismatic friend

March 27: Have you voted for the Top 3 Client Gallery displays as listed in today's Daily Blog? If not, then please consider! I've redesigned the Client Galleries module towards simplifying customer access and my own maintenance. So please have a look. Better yet, please consider joining the GFRC Trading Desk community with a consignment.; whether large or small, I would like to have you as a client.

March 19: Updated John Okerson's Liberty Seated Half dollar set in the Open Registry. Also updated Tim Cook's Seated Dimes Top 100 Varieties set. Both individuals continue to move forward with this set building challenges.

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.
