GFRC Online Auctions - PDF Catalog Archives


Greetings and welcome to GFRC No Buyer's Fee Auction Sales portal. Our online auction application takes a simplified approach for conducting noteworthy auctions without buyer's fees. The one commission rate approach for integrated auction and price list sales leads to a carefree and fun buying and selling event.

GFRC continues its 2024 auction schedule with a substantial offering of Liberty Seated and Barber coinage lot that should appeal to our broad collector base and the market place as a whole. The New Jersey and Sooner Collections releases are fitting bookends for the Liberty Seated coinage series as Seated half dime as extensively offer as the smallest denomination. The dollar denomination is very well represent by a notable mix of Liberty Seated and Trade dollars.

One of the GFRC auction platform hallmarks in the construction of the auction catalog on a real time basis. Collectors have inquisitive minds and wish to secure the latest auction information for set building decisions. The Two Fine Gentlemen Auction Sale catalog will be constructed with images, GFRC quality ratings, and basic descriptions being first displayed. Next will come the reserve prices after consignor approvals. Afterwards, descriptions will be added to those lots that were not previously purchased from GFRC. The reuse of images and descriptions will aid with online catalog building efficient given the ever expanding size of GFRC bimonthly auction. The final step is the assemblage of the PDF catalog for those who wish to stock their numismatic libraries with ongoing documentation of GFRC events. Anchor collections will also be receiving personalized paper catalog as a special memory of their collection sale.

Lot previewing will take place at the Spring Whitman Baltimore show held March 21-23, 2024 at GFRC booth #818. All lots will be available for inspection with the help of GFRC table staff.

Hopefully, inspecting the forthcoming images (when assembled and published) will be as much fun as bidding in the auction given the continuing GFRC photography improvements and the significance of this 100+ lot event. Please remember that GFRC is always here to help collectors with their divestment needs.

About GFRC

GFRC has rapidly grown as a leading retailer of quality Early Silver Type, U.S. Gold, and now expanding into early 20th Century denominations. Our business model is consignment centric supporting more than 150 consignors who actively conduct collection duplicate divestments. Selling CAC approved coins is our primary mission and specialty.

Founded during early 2014, GFRC has been in continuous operation since that time. Our website previously garnered some of the highest industry rankings due to a dedicated numismatic community that constantly visits the many online applications. The Daily Blog is the go to link for daily new purchases and auction information. Unlike other smaller dealers, we offer a complete Sales and Auction Archive for complete transparency. The GFRC Open Set Registry provides collectors with a friendly venue for posting their collections. The GFRC Gallery showcases the past and present offerings of our top consignors.

GFRC is a well known fixture on the national coin show circuit. We exhibit at Whitman Baltimore, Winter and Summer FUN, Central States, and the Summer ANA World's Fair of Money. You will find GFRC at smaller regional shows consistent with our summer New England presence and winter snowbird status in Florida.


The Unique GFRC Integrated Service Approach

With the introduction of the GFRC's Online Auction service, clients have multiple sale approaches for their consigned coins.

- Regular Fixed Priced List Sales

- Online Auction Sales (Minimum consignment lot size and/or value requirement)

- A lot not selling at its Online Auction reserve price will automatically post to the price list at the reserve price.

- GFRC will not return consigned lots that do not meet reserves at Online Auctions due to the standard four month minimum consignment length requirement as part of GFRC regular policy. Requests for earlier returns of auction lots will be subject to 5% handling fee.

The TPG number is available with a link back to the TPG website for checking certification. Reserves and high bids will be listed in the second to right column.
