Brilliant frosty luster enhances the toning on both sides. Cartwheels are crisp and so pleasing. Strike is hammered and surfaces are completely unabraded as one would expect from a superb gem. An ideal candidate for an advanced Barber date and mintmark set or as a representative Barber type. CAC approval validates the strict original toning and accurate grading.

Choice $950 New July 20! Semi-Key Date, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Frosted Devices, CAC Approval, City By The Bay Collection. 1903 San Francisco strikes were limited to 613,300 pieces, a small enough number to bring semi-key date status. As with most Barber coinage, heavy circulation well into the Depression Era leaves few choice circulated or Mint State examples for modern date collectors. This AU55 certified example should garner quick attention. PCGS population is limited to thirteen pieces while CAC population is a tiny three pieces. Do I hear an opportunity knocking at the door? Fields are lightly mirrored while primary devices exhibit some mint frost. Black verdigris surrounds a portion of the obverse legend. A stray line is seen on the lower reverse.

Choice $450 New August 25! Brilliant Frosty Luster, Attractive Toning, Choice Surfaces, Palos Verdes Collection. The Barber coinage series are full of surprises since this design circulated heavily for years. Once entering circulation, Barber coinage circulated through the Great Depression. Few Mint State examples were saved for many dates including the 1907 San Francisco issue. From a mintage of over three million, PCGS has graded about one hundred examples in all Mint States grades. This MS62 certified example, from the Palos Verdes Collection, is fully choice with brilliant frosty luster. A luscious peripheral gold ring nicely frames the obverse while intermixed aquamarine-gold covers the reverse. Sure to please. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

Original $210 Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Low PCGS Population, Better Date, Original Crusty Golden Patina, Frosty Luster, Typical Strike, Fairly Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. Exploring the Barber coinage series is enjoyable. One will discover some attractive values including this 1910 Denver strike. A check of the PCGS population report revealed a very low certification rate in circulated grades. Most holdered pieces are graded at the mint state level. Those graded AU58 make up the bulk of those graded in all AU grades. This example, from the Twin lakes Collection, has crusty original gold patina across both sides. The patina is thick and blocks a portion of the residual frosty luster. Strike is typical and grading is accurate for this naturally preserved example.

The mostly uniform patina appears dark during in-hand inspection but promptly shifts to lighter shades once under a light source.

Choice $1150 Velvet Material Toning, AU58 Preservation State, Frosty Luster, Very Pretty, Lenny Rizzo Collection. Sometimes I just wonder about PCGS certification. Case in point is this gorgeous 1896-O Barber quarter that was original straight graded as PCGS AU58. Like many collectors, the consignor decided to crack the coin out for an attempt at an MS62 grade. PCGS subsequently bagged the coin for Questionable Color. Once consigned to GFRC, a close inspection leads me to believe that this silver piece is perfectly original and should be in an AU58 holder due to faint Dansco or Whitman bookshelf slide marks on the cheek and lower bust. This piece is essentially a gem with mylar slide friction. I sent the piece back to PCGS as part of another grading lot. It returned in a Questionable Color - UNC Details holder. At this point, the consignor and I have decided to take this piece to the price list rather than suffering through another submission attempt. This 1896-O quarter is perfectly original and choice as an AU58. Toning is most likely from exposure in a velvet lined cabinet. Frosty luster has a granular texture and offers shimmering cartwheels. Surfaces are entirely unabraded. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This listing brings a full disclosure on how I see this Barber quarter.

Original $4850 Key Date, Near-Choice Original, Pleasing Residual Luster, City by the Bay Collection. The 1913-S is one of the first coins examined in any Barber quarter set, and for good reason. Along with the 1896-S and 1901-S, this is part of the "big three" San Francisco Mint keys to the set, with mintages far lower than any other issue in the series. GFRC is pleased to be offering a near-choice duplicate from the City by the Bay Collection. Eye appeal is consistent with the About Uncirculated grade level as residual luster is coruscating. Ample remaining mint frost is seen in the protected area. Obverse friction probably brought the assigned grade as the reverse is no question AU. Die finish is best described as steely frosty if that makes any sense! Other than a light break in the surface frost by star 6, this is an unabraded specimen. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Choice $5450 Key Date, Steely Residual Luster, Olive-Gray with Peripheral Blue-Gold, Osprey Collection. 1896 San Francisco strikes have the third smallest mintage among the three key Barber quarter dates; 188,039 pieces Only the 1901-S and 1913-S were produced in smaller quantities and are rigorously sought after. Most surviving 1896-S quarters grade VF or lower, making this XF coin elusive and highly sought-after. This choice example retains a fair amount of steely luster that is a surprise and pleasing. Toning is intermixed olive-gray with peripheral deep blues and gold on obverse and reverse. Conservative grading appears to be at hand given the raised headband, bold wingtips and residual luster. Sure, everyone wants CAC approved examples these days but the total population in both EF grade is (1) one! Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This example was sent to CAC and did not pass as the toning is not uniform crusty gray that has become synonymous with CAC stickers. Those collectors waiting for a CAC approved EF may be waiting for years. This offering is awfully nice at the grade and would fit well in a higher grade circulated set.

New Orleans Barber quarter mintage totaled well over a million that year with nearly all being well circulated in the Depression. This semi-key date has low PCGS populations at most grades and becomes very scare in Mint State. The RCA Collection specimen is typical of the set. Surfaces are lightly frosted with a pleasing glow and active cartwheels during bright light inspection. Coloring is a pleasing faint pewter-gold. There are no abrasions to mention.

The RCA Collection example is a well preserved original piece. Surfaces appear to have been dipped but still retain patches of mint frost. Luster is frosty with some reflective brilliance during bright light inspection. The right obverse field contains several circulation marks. Overall, an important example of this semi-key date.

This 1898-S strike, is on the latter edge of the luster spectrum and has sharp steely luster and a bold look. The peripheral gold adds just the right amount of framing to untoned centers.

Barber quarter branch mint coinage history remains consistent; coinage was needed in the local channels of commerce, and few pieces were set aside in Uncirculated condition. Regardless of 5.7 million quarters struck in the New Orleans mint during 1908, few superb gem survivors are known. PCGS population is all of eleven pieces at the MS66 grade level. The Eric P. Newman Collection pieces are most special since being stored in old paper envelope for decades. Silver surfaces are typically covered with deep, original layers of blue-gray and faint traces of reddish patina. The mint luster is thick and frosty with vibrant cartwheels. Strike is complete with all device details deeply impressed. Housed in original NGC Eric P Newman brown label holder. This piece previously sold at the Heritage November 2013 sale for $3055.

Original $195 Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Original, Collector-Grade, Twin Lakes Collection.. The coin exhibits wear at the high points consistent with the grade and is medium toned with ocassional crust about the stars, legend, and date. All of the Barber coinage was struck at four different Mints - Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, and, toward the end of the series, at Denver as well. The New Orleans Mint was notorious for poorly struck coins in the Liberty Seated series, but these problems were largely resolved by 1892 with the introduction of Barber coinage. This piece is an excellent representation of the New Orleans Mint for the period, a welll-struck, original example that brings a tiny piece of New Orleans from the past to the present day.

This is a gray toned example surrounded by an obverse maroon halo, while the reverse shades are more concentrated beneath the eagle. A few hairlines are seen in the truncation of the bust, but overall detail is solid for the grade, and there is never a substitute for rarity. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

The cartwheels are incredible active as if viewing a polished piece of steel. I hope these comments will help with the visualization since GFRC images are better suited for accurate coloring. Coloring is a light gold with faint aquamarine hues. These have been amplified by my Nikon camera; therefore please note this fact when viewing the images.

Present day survivors will be found in the typical Good through Fine grade with AU examples being rare. It was with that insight that this perfectly original AU53 graded specimen was added to GFRC inventory. PCGS population at the AU53 level is only 8. CAC population is a scant two with two better each in AU55 and AU58. One must assume that the CAC approved pieces are in strong collector hands. Steely luster remains during bright light inspection.

Let's open the description with a mea culpa concerning the images of this choice 1913 San Francisco Barber half dollar strike. The images do not accurately capture the overall beauty and especially the bold steely luster that explodes under a light source. Cartwheels action is dazzling with the speckled toning not coming into focus. Toning can be best described as pewter-chrome given the surface texture. A quality example of a scarce date in AU and very scarce in Mint State. There is one micro line in the right obverse field that would probably hold the piece back from CAC approval. Otherwise lots of eye appeal on display. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder.
