The Burchs Creek Collection Consignment - August 6, 2015

Liberty Seated Half Dollars










The Burchs Creek Collection consignment is a substantial offering of ungraded (raw) Liberty Seated half dollars assembled by a passionate collector. Grades mostly range at the EF40 through AU58 level as his collecting target for common or more challenging dates and mintmarks. This collection offers a broad range of surface appearances including those that are frosty white and others that exhibit traditional gray patina. My favorites include the 1840-O WB-8 with re-engraved obverse denticles, the 1864 with old album toning over proof like surfaces, the 1867-S that is a near mint state piece with frosty luster and the 1874 With Arrows half with old leather toning. I'm sure that GFRC customer will enjoy viewing each individual piece in terms of surface conditions, rarity and eye appeal.
