Plain 4, Late Die State Dies, Crusty Chocolate Brown Patina, Accurately Graded, Twin Lakes Collection. . The 1814 Plain 4 Large Cent is scarce in Mint State with no Red-Brown or Red example known for either the Plain or Crosslet 4 die variety. PCGS has only graded twenty-one Plain 4 examples and roughly the same amount in all Mint State grade. GFRC is pleased to be offering an AU58 graded example from the Twin Lakes Collection. This example was struck from late die state dies as noted by the heavy metal flow lines and eroded milling. Die spalling is apparent under Liberty's chin. Surfaces are toned a deep chocolate brown on both sides. An obverse die crack connects the the 8 digit to the lower curls along with star 11. Some faint chatter is seen on the obverse. Housed in old PCGS Gen 4.4 holder with blue label and standard ring insert. The Twin Lakes consignor says sell so offers will be considered.

Near Gem Original, Wonderful Eye Appeal, Deep Blue-Rose Patina, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded, Upstate New York Collection. Brights light vewing is where all the fun is for this wonderful 1850 Seated half dime. Well preserved mint state surfaces offer frosty cartwheel luster but key is the gorgeous blue-rose radial toning. GFRC images are very accurate color wise and just imagine that blue patina melting into light roses and golden hues under a light source. The transition is stark and so pleasing. Strike fully executed with high relief obverse stars and full head details. The left reverse wreath leaves could be just a tad stronger but that may be too demanding for this date. Die polish lines are seen at the date and moving diagonally into the base. Abrasion wise, there are a few toned over micro ticks in the left obverse field of no consequence. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. Another attractively toned offering that we have come to expect from the Upstate New York Collection. Frankly, the new owner should have this piece reholdered to allow more natural light to reach the surfaces.

Choice Satiny Luster, Thick Old Album Toning, Better Date. Photographing darker toned Seated coinage for strong underlying luster is always a challenge. This is definitely the case for this deeply toned 1855 New Orleans struck half dime. Mintage for this date is a relatively high 600,000 but survival rates are very low. PCGS population report indicates a total of 21 coins slabbed at all AU grade levels with 9 each at the MS63, MS64 and MS65 grade levels. There is only one example certified as MS66. The offered example is fully struck with iridescent toning throughout obverse and reverse. Under bright light, an aquamarine obverse center is nicely framed with golden coloring surrounding the stars. The reverse exhibits a rose center that is surrounding by sky blue and finally, golden hues at the rim. As for blemishes, the obverse is entirely blemish free with a few wispy hairlines on the reverse above the denomination when the half dime is placed at an appropriate angle. Overall, this is a choice offering that will eventually be holdered. Consigned by an individual that wishes to remain outside the GFRC spotlight.

E.H.R. Green. What an exciting offering to kick off the Midwest Collection at GFRC! The Eric P. Newman 1832 JR-3 specimen presents a scarce die variety that is extremely rare in higher grades. The JR-3 variety is identified by the position of star 8 placed high by Liberty's cap and the serif of the second S in STATES over the right edge of the right upright of U in PLURIBUS. The reverse, on this example, is shattered with massive internal breaks connecting the arrow heads to AMERIC(A) to the rim. The sharply impressed design elements show just a touch of wear and traces of mint luster occasionally shine through pleasing shades of old envelope pinkish-gray toning. Housed in the original NGC EPN brown label holder along with CAC approval. This example sold for nearly $1900 during the November 2013 Newman sale and does not have another auction record since that time. The original Col. EHR Green storage envelope is included in the sale.

After 25 years of collecting and researching Liberty Seated dimes, I can say with much certainty that the 1839 New Orleans F-107 die pairing, with small O mintmark, is scarcer than that of Huge O reverse strikes. One infrequently sees this variety and most known will have problems. This offering, from the Indiana Collection, is strictly original but does have scattered lines throughout the obverse. These lines are old and fully toned over. The reverse is blemish free. Pricing is fair given the overall quality and rarity.

Underrated Date, Original Surfaces, Reflective Luster, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Gray-Gold Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. 1848 Philadelphia strikes have long been an underrated date. Mintage of 451,500 would indicate a fairly large number of survivors but that is not the case. PCGS has certified only twelve (12) in all VF grades and nineteen (19) in combined EF40 and EF45. At the AU58 grade level, there are only six (6). Definitely information to consider when examing this lovely F-101a example that offers lightly mirrored fields and reflective luster as is often seen for the variety. Gray-gold patina covers both sides and shifts to blues, rose and gold under a light source. Strike is absolutely hammered with high relief stars and bold reverse wreath devices. The F-101a later die state die cracks are easily seen with a 10x loupe. Accurately graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Repunched Date, Frosty Golden Luster, Hammered Strike, Conservatively Graded, Indiana Collection. A bold and brilliant example of the popular 1849 repunched date die variety. For years, this variety was listed as 1849/8 overdate but was questioned by Greer and later debunked when writing the "web-book" as remnants of the first date punch are clealy evident in the upper loops of the 8 and 9 digits. This repunching is bold and well displayed within the date digits of this eye appealing AU58 example. Brilliant luster remains in harmony with peripheral burnt gold on both sides. Strike is hammered and adds to the desireability. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s. An old time Liberty Seated dime that has been in the Indiana Collection since 1994; purchased directly from Brian Greer.

On lower grade specimens, the A in AMERICA appears to be completely eliminated as a result of the broken die. However, on this VF example, the letters AMER(ICA) are still being struck and sitting on raised metal that is easily prone to wear. Surfaces are strictly original with uniform gray patina. There is an obverse rim bruise at 9:00, but then again, less than a handful are known at this time. An important Liberty Seated dime die variety offering from the Indiana Collection.

Double Die Reverse, Original Gun Metal Gray Patina, Early Die State, Typical Weak Strike, Accurately Graded, Indiana Collection. A spectacular doubled die error on the reverse of an 1872 dime was discovered by Dave Thomas during April 1999 and published in the Gobrecht Journal by Tom DeLorey in July 2003. The reverse die was hubbed twice with the second hubbing being rotated approximately 175 degrees from the initial hubbing. The importance of this doubled die error lead to its inclusion in the Top 100 Varieties set during 2004. This example, from the Indiana Collection, is perfectly original and so typical of the F-105 variety. Surfaces are covered with uniform gun metal gray patina. Strike is weak but so typical for F-105 examples. Nearly all will be found with flat or partial heads along with weakness in the upper reverse wheat grains. This piece is accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Yet another Liberty Seated die variety duplicate from the Indiana Collection. Also, a semi key date in the Seated Dime Top 100 Varieties set.

Low Level Date, Original Surfaces, Mirrored Obverse Fields, Frosty Cartwheel Luster Reverse, Accurately Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. 1873 With Arrows coinage is popular as type but also a treasure trove for die variety collectors. Date and arrows were punched separately leading to enough placement difference for die variety analysis. The offered example is the F-114 Low Date die variety with date punched close to the denticles. Arrows are also noticeably lower than normal. What makes this particular 1873 WA F-114 particularly interesting are the different die surface differences between obverse and reverse. Obverse fields are mirrored and produce an obvious cameo effect when viewed under a light source. Resulting luster is reflective. Then we check the reverse and find a frosty die finish throughout the fields and devices. This side of the coin produces frosty cartwheel luster as a contrast to the obverse. Obverse is covered with faint gray skin. Strike is nearly complete with only the top of Liberty's head and the upper left reverse wheat grains being weak; so typical of the With Legend hub design. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. A cool offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.

Rare Variety, Misplaced 5 in Base, Gem Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Rose-Gold and Aquamarine Toning, Tied for Finest Known, Indiana Collection. An exceptional 1875 F-106 offering that features a misplaced ball and lower loop of 5 digit in the base. Obverse die is also heavily clashed. The reverse has missing upper right bar at D(I)ME and the upper left bar of DI(M)E. This is a challenging variety to locate as careful attention is necessary to isolate the misplaced ball and loop of the 5 digit from the background shapes in the base. Dimes grading EF or better are the best candidates for cherry picking. No examples were reported between 1992 (first reported by Greer) and 2013. The Greer plate coin was sold into the Fortin reference collection during June 1995. Then during November 2013, another example apperared in the Eric P Newman/Col. Green Heritage sale that graded NGC MS66 CAC. A third example was located during July 2015 by GFRC which graded PCGS MS66 CAC and was sold into the Indiana Collection. Now that exceptional specimen is back on the market and is the plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. Fully struck with bold devices throughout obverse and reverse. Under a light source, satiny cartwheel luster is vibrant and so pleasing. Toning is intermixed rose-gold and aquamarine. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. An offering for the collector who wants the finest in his collection.

This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection. As a reference, GFRC sold a PCGS AU58 example for $1700 during April 2017.

Some collectors may not know that 1855 Philadelphia strikes are the better "With Arrows" date for Liberty Seated dimes, quarters and halves.

Better Date, Even Medium Gray Toning, Tiny Rim Filing, West Texas Collection. A key date in the Liberty Seated quarter series with mintage of 121,000. This is yet another issue with low survival rates and choice specimens being the anomaly. Most collectors end up purchasing a market acceptable example to fill that spot in a Dansco or Whitman album. When first evaluating this example, from the West Texas Collection, an Original quality rating was assigned and priced. The surfaces are toned an even medium gray that may not be strictly original but close enough to be graded by the TPGs. During a second inspection, a small rim filing was noted at 12:00 above Liberty's head. The filing is about 5 reeds long and the location might suggest a removed jewelry loop but I'm not convinced of that. My thought is the rim was initially filed but left at that as the color is uniform with the balance of the coin. Otherwise, this offering is quite acceptable with only two tiny rim scrapes to mention on the reverse. A decent offering of this difficult and expensive date. I've seen much worst in TPG holders.

FUN Show Price Reduction, WB-1, Rare Small Date Obverse, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Golden-Brown Patina, Oregon Beaver Collection. One of the challenging die variety rarities in the Liberty Seated half dollar series that is listed in the Redbook and on major price guides. Bill Bugert, in his Federal Register series on Liberty Seated half dollars, indicates that, "the first two months mintage, January and February, are generally accepted to include the small date varieties (WB-1, WB-2) althought the initial 1842 delivery of those coins on February 28, 1842 included some coins dated 1841. The remaining months are of the medium date mintage." On the WB-1 Small Date variety, the reverse strike is weak with poorly defined left leg, arrow feathers and left/right claws. This characteristic is present on the Oregon Beaver specimen. On the offered example, fields are lightly mirrored and covered with a transparent skin of gray-gold patina. Surfaces are essentially blemish free at the assigned VF35 grade level with only a small mark by Liberty's foot being noted. Obverse strike is also weak resulting in overall grading being conservative. Based on wear, this example is a full EF40. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important opportunity for serious Liberty Seated half dollar collectors to acquire an R5 date and reverse pairing die variety.
