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.

Choice $190 New June 24! Better Date, Choice Original, Old Album Rose, Gray and Blue Toning, Hammered Strike, Conservative Grading, Denver Collection. Well above average quality and eye appeal for the assigned grade. Low surviving population from a mintage of 1.3 million and definitely a better Philadelphia date.

Old album toning with transparent rose centers and blue fields under a light source. Lots of eye appeal to consider resulting from this purchase. Housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder.

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.

Original $140 Original and Attractive, Steely Luster, Gray-Rose and Aquamarine Patina, Accurately Graded, Ft. Lauderale Collection. There are times when GFRC photography is unable to capture a coin's true beauty; this is one of those cases. This offering, from the Ft.

Toning is darker gray with intermixed gold, rose and aquamarines hues appearing during bright light viewing. Blemish wise, this piece has some disturbances on Liberty's cheek and neck resulting in a net grade of AU53. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. An attractive offering from the Ft.

Choice Original, Gun Metal Gray, Better Date, Accurately Graded, Fort Lauderdale Collection. Early 1894 New Orleans quarters are in demand when found choice. Actually, the date is scarce in certified EF grades as PCGS population reports indicates (12) in EF40 and only (8) in EF45. Think about that for a moment when examining this freshly graded example. Surfaces are strictly original and covered with uniform gray patina that includes faint olive hues on the reverse. Strike is well executed with all tail feathers visibile.

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 $3950 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.
