2388569001
Gem $6000 New December 2! Extremely Rare Doubled Date, Gem Original, Prooflike Early Strike, Four Known. GFRC is pleased to offer the finest known 1892 Barber dime FS-302 Doubled Date specimen. This exception piece is graded NGC MS64 PL with attribution references of FS-301, VP-001 and Breen 3472. The latter is important as Breen states, "1892 Double Date. Very Rare. Proofs and business strikes." This amazing Barber dime comes with a book sized pristine NGC Photo Proof laminated document that explains the variety and captures full obverse and reverse images along with a macro shot of the date, with the following description by Anthony C. LaVerghetta. "Perhaps it was the unfamiliarity with a new coin type that prompted the engraver to first punch the date of this dime far to the left of where it should be. This was corrected on the second attempt, leaving both impressions sharp. This specimen is actually not the variety illustrated in Breen; it is better, having a more complete extra date. Quite rare, especially uncirculated, this beauty is the only example certified by NGC (April 2009). Entirely untoned, it was coined from fresh dies that retained their prooflike fields. On top of everything else, this spendid dime is fully struck in all details." This is the only example certified by NGC with three examples certified by PCGS. This piece is the plate coin employed to illustrate FS-302 on the NGC VarietyPlus webpage. Surfaces are closer to a full fledged proof than a business strike with doubled denticles on the obverse. The repunched date is bold and obvious under 10x loupe and easily detected by die variety fans. The combination of heavily mirrored obverse and reverse fields and the repunched date should make this an easy cherrypicker target if available. But with only four examples certified since 2008, it is definitely a rarity. This is a offering for a serious Barber collector who desires a research project as no explanation currently exist for the manufacture of this piece.

Choice $465 Near Gem Original, Super Eye Appeal, Colorful Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Saco River Collection. Definitely not your ordinary 1892 Barber dime! This near gem piece has incredible eye appeal consistent with a high grade. Fully struck with brilliant cartwheel luster that dazzles the eyes. Add in rose, gold and blues into the mix leads to superior eye appeal. Technically, this lovely Barber dime has been graded MS64 due to a blemish by Liberty's lips but the eye appeal is MS65+. CAC has agreed with the originality and eye appeal by assigned their green bean sticker. Fairly graded and housed in newer NGC holder. A super offering to consider from the Saco River Collection.

Gem $325 New November 28! Gem Original, Mirrored Fields, Frosty Devices, Golden Rims, Conservatively Graded. 1892 first of issue examples are always available in the market. The challenge, for collectors, is locating an above average specimen that will be a joy to own and display. GFRC is pleased this candidate for consideration. I love this 1892 Barber dime for several reasons. First is the overall appearance and contrast between frosty devices and mirrored fields, especially on the reverse. Next are the lovely golden toned rims which are a bit deeper on the obverse. Finally, the conservative grading in PCGS old green holder contributes to the allure. A lovely example that should not last long given the old time quality.

Original $90 Thick Old Toning, Better Date. Surfaces are covered with thick multi color patina that is most likely secondary in nature. Strike is bold with all reverse wreath devices being crisp and well formed. There are no blemishes whatsoever on this colorful example. Many of the earlier Barber dime branch mint dates are underrated with low PCGS populations. For example, the 1898-S only has (8) in EF40 and (10) in EF45. This is amazing given the mintage of 1.7M pieces. Accurately graded and fairly priced.

Choice $350 Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Golden Blue Rims, Choice Surfaces. An eye catching Barber quarter that would be ideal for a mint state Dansco or Whitman type set. Cartwheel luster swirls throughout the surfaces and tickles the eyes. The luster is nicely framed by copper gold and blue shades at the obverse and reverse rims. I believe my grading is conservative since this Barber quarter is raw. Much lower quality has been seen in MS63 TPG holders. If the coin in the GFRC images is appealing, then this one will be stunning once in hand.

Gem $1150 Gem Original, Light Olive Gray Patina, Luster and Eye Appeal. A fitting partner to the 1908 PCGS MS63 CAC quarter also listed here. This is a gem piece as far as I'm concerned. Surfaces are perfectly original and have a patina to be expected after 100+ years of proper storage. Luster is cartwheel in nature under bright light and a bit attenuated due to the thick patina. Strike is complete and there are absolutely no blemishes. The soft luster is responsibile for the assigned MS63 grade; which is accurate. CAC approval rewards the originality. Fresh to market from a New England collection and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Gem $3600 Superb Proof Strike Gem, Monster Toning, Colorado Collection. An incredible Barber half dollar gem with fiery red patina on the reverse resulting in the reverse being mounted on the front of the PCGS holder. Forget the PCGS TruView images as they are completely inadequate in capturing the deep colors and vivid proof surfaces. GFRC images are much more accurate capturing the bloody red obverse center that is surrounding with a sky blue ring at the rim. Reverse toning adds violet and purple to the reds seen on the obverse. In hand viewing under a strong bright light will produce the maximum enjoyment. Actually, this is a show and tell piece for the collectors who loves truly cool coins. Housed in transitional 2012/2013 PCGS Security holder with blue label and edge view insert. Please give this Barber half some consideration as I've seen none equivalent to this piece in my collecting career.

Choice $835 Choice Original, Creamy Luster, Accurately Graded, Seal Beach Collection. A strictly original Barber half dollar for your consideration from the Seal Beach Collection. Quality is so typical of all the 20th Century pieces housed in PCGS old green holders from his collection. This 1912 San Francisco strike offers creamy luster and no blemishes. Strike is crisp with complete definition of the eagle's claws and arrow shafts along with tail feathers. Though this piece has MS63 appearance, 10x loupe inspection revealed a few diagonal slide lines on Liberty neck. These rub lines are faint and require loupe inspection and rotating light to see. Housed in old green PCGS holder but with bar code. The easiest PCGS old green holders lack bar codes as do the rattler holders.
