Key Date, Choice Surfaces, Strong Strike, Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. The first 1909 San Francisco Indian handled by GFRC and what a way to start thanks to the Port Matilda Collection. Accurately graded NGC MS62 with Red Brown designation. I like this copper piece regardless of the key date status. Surfaces are choice with a well balanced strike. Soft luster is the primary reason for the assigned MS62 grade. The only blemish seen is a flat spot on the rim below the mintmark....no other dealer would mention this type of detail. Housed in newer NGC holder with CAC approval. CAC has it right on this piece.

Choice at MS61 Grade, Sharp Steely Luster, Pastel Toning, Accurately Graded, Wisconsin Collection. Super eye appeal dominates on this lovely 1832 LM-3 Capped Bust half dime. Flashy gold and sky blue luster is consistent across obverse and reverse and really pleases the eyes. I love this piece! So why the MS61 assigned grade? There are two ticks on the obverse that dropped the technical grade. The first is immediately left the mouth and the second, much smaller, is below the lowest hair curl. CAC approval validate my impression of this little near gem; huge eye appeal, accurate grading plus strict originality. Housed in old NGC fatty holder with CAC approval.

Corroded/Clashed Dies, Even Gun Metal Gray. The 1838 small stars variety is not related to an undersized star punch issue. The small stars obverse die was lapped by mint workers to the point that Star 2 is nearly effaced and the balance of the stars having a size reduction. These dies were poorly handled with severe corrosion and clashing. In the terminal die state, a die crack is seen from Liberty's knee to Star 13. The offered example lacks the terminal die state crack but has all other diagnostics to qualify as a small stars V-2 variety. The assigned NGC MS62 grade is accurate and fair as the obverse is choice original with gun metal gray/blue patina. The reverse is a tad ligher in color and has a few wispy hairlines that are seen under bright light inspection. Die clashing on the reverse is massive with raised metal and the E in DIME being higher than surrounding lettering. Housed in old NGC holder without the Small Stars attribution on the label. The blurry spot on reverse image on D(IM)E is from the holder and not on the actual coin.

The EF40 grade provides a good price point to secure nearly all details while AU and MS examples jump quickly in price. The offered example has light gray natural surfaces and is well struck with strong hair details and star centrils. Reverse has some weakness on the upper wreath leaves. Housed in latest NGC holder. This is the second time that GFRC has handled this piece as it transitions from one advanced seated collection to another. Please give this one careful consideration.

Choice Original, Late Die State, Conservative Grading, Central California Collection. I really like this lovely 1855 New Orleans half dime for several reasons. This piece was struck from a very late die state obverse that is cracked and rusted. The strike is crisp and allows the variety specialist to view every tiny rust spec throughout Liberty and within the fields. The right hand stars are bridged by a thick die crack. This worn out obverse die is paired with a pristine reverse die with sharp device details. Overall toning is light gold with plenty of remaining luster to activate the toning under bright light; bright light is where this piece shines. I believe this piece is under graded and should be in an AU58 holder. Housed in old PCGS holder with blue label and standard ring insert.

Superb Gem, Dallas Collection. Really an amazing offering for the type coin collector who desires only the best. One immediately notices the proof like fields coupled with frosty devices that generate a huge amount of luster with or without bright light. The dies employed to strike this piece were heavily polished with die striations throughout obverse and reverse while Liberty is fully frosted. Then the dies clashed with bold device transfer between the two. The centers are essentially untoned. The obverse exhibits a rapid blue to rose/gold transition at the legend. The reverse is similar with a larger right side toning arc comprised of darker blues and rose. Strike is fully hammered and the reverse anomalies inside the denomination letters being heavy clash marks. Housed in a 2013 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval.

Filled Obverse Die, Gem Frosty Oriignal, Light Gold Patina, Colorado Collection. A gorgeous 1871 Philadelphia Liberty Seated half dime with considerable character from the minting process. Luster and surfaces are consistent with gem designation. Add in a filled obverse die and heavy die clashing and one has a unique strike that would be a great conservative piece. The upper left arm and portions of Liberty's face remained unfilled during the minting process as is seen on Seated dimes. A grease filled die is always a plausible explanation. A heavy clash mark protrudes from the gown line into Liberty's neck. The reverse has heavy die clash lines and partial H(AL)F, again from a filled die event. Luster is quite frosty while faint gold toning streaks are seen on the obverse under a 10x loupe. There are no blemishes to discuss. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and a top quality offering from the Colorado Collection.

Gem Original, Bold Luster, Accurate Grading, Central California Collection. This lovely half dime offers two completely different personalities and is a joy to view. Let's start with in hand viewing as shown by my images..Toning is a base gray color that is overlaid with browns and deep blues that are well captured in the images. Bright light viewing exposes a completely different facet with bold cartwheel luster that turns the obverse into light rose and sky blue. The reverse is similar under bright light as the thicker in hand patina just melts away to expose faint rose and blues. The CAC approval is obviously justified on this lovely half dime as the piece is so original. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Very Scarce, Hanes Park Collection. The JR-7 variety is challenging in all grades and features the die pairing of Obverse 4 and Reverse G. Though obviously not an original coin, the in hand eye appeal is respectable for an R5 variety. Surfaces have been cleaned leaving some granularity and micro lines on the obverse while the reverse is an even silver gray with no blemishes. There is considerable device details on this example as the EF40 assigned grade considers the surface conditions. An excellent filler for the variety until an original piece might be located.

The late die state obverse cracks are thick and crisply defined while the die clashing is bold from a hammered strike. Some F-101c examples will exhibit most of the terminal die state diagnostic but this example has every clash mark deeply impressed. Strictly original surfaces are entirely covered with a light gray patina. There are a few micro lines in the right obverse field that hold this first year Seated dime strike back from a Choice quality rating. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important Top 100 offering from the Indiana Collection.

Original surfaces have acquired an old album rose/violet toning with deep blue at the rims. Bright light viewing is fun with glowing luster that is better than the assigned MS62 grade. This piece is fully struck as we must realize that 1840 No Drapery dimes are found with shallow die relief. The die polished lines (chin whiskers) are quite evident on the obverse image. A 10x loupe inspection revealed no blemishes whatsoever. Housed in newer NGC holder with serial number 3841310-005. From the Highwood consignor and definitely a quality piece worthy of consideration.

Original, Large O, Lapped Dies, Birmingham Collection.. A little background is necessary to understand the New Orleans 1840 Large O variety...both obverse and reverse dies were lapped reducing the amount of device details with the date punch nearly effaced. The reverse die is also well worn and cracked. So strikes are consistently weak. This example offers original surfaces covered with light gray/rose patina on obverse and even silver gray on reverse. Under bright light, this piece retains ample luster, especially on the reverse with some mild PL reflections on the obverse. GFRC images do not well represent this dime and in hand reviewing is suggested. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with no CAC attempt.

I've seen a fair number of 1840, 1841 and 1842 New Orleans dimes with the same micro tick marks mostly on the obvese. I believe this dime is original and not cleaned but does have micro tick marks and a line on the reverse rim. I've also seen some of these New Orleans dimes in PCGS holders where TPG recognizes the original surfaces and net grades the coin. Images well capture the dimes surface conditions and color. Interesting how weak the reverse denomination is.

Deep gray toning covers both obverse and reverse with strong underlying red coloration. This piece also shows the satiny finish typically seen on many New Orleans struck coins.

The PCGS population reports are low at (6) MS63, (9) MS64, (1) MS65 and (1) MS66. The MS64 number has regrade attempts due to a large MS65 price jump. The Birmingham Collection example has typical satiny surfaces with a hint of light gold. Strike is all there with complete head details and bold star centrils while the reverse has complete wreath leaves other than a spot at 10:00 which is typical for the F-101 variety. Surfaces are blemish free and attractive. Housed in old PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. No CAC attempt by the Birmingham owner. I hope that GFRC customers will carefully consider this offering.

The surface condition does not appear to be original but the overall appearance is market acceptable. For the collector who wishes to conduct further Liberty Seated dime variety research.

Choice Original, Light Gray/Gold Patina, Rare in AU, Birmingham Collection.. Worthy of an advanced Registry collection. Definitely a choice original example with light rose/gold patina throughout obverse and reverse. Any wear is minimum as this San Francisco date used obverse design from Type I hub (all 1860, 1861-S and 1861 Type I) and is known to have soft device features that are prone to wear. If seeing this piece raw, I would probably grade AU58. Strike is better than average with strong scroll/shield and reverse devices. Only the top of Liberty's head and the upper left wheat grains are not fully defined. There are no blemishes to note on this lovely piece. In terms of rarity, the PCGS population in all AU grades stands at 7 pieces and I suspect several of the AU55s are regrade attempts since none have sold at auction since 2000. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder standard ring insert; serial number 5763048. There was no CAC attempt by consignor.. Pricing is consistent with the PCGS AU58 example recently sold by Heritage on 10/14. I like the offered example better due to the uniform toning and frosty obverse rather than the blast white dipped surfaces on the 10/14 lot.

The surfaces are covered with gun metal grade patina and without blemishes or any issues. Strike is reasonable with only slight obverse rim weakness (OF AM)ERICA which is so typical for this date along with 1863-S. The reverse was struck by a badly eroded die without denticles. From a strict wear perspective, I would grade this dime at VF20 level if raw. Housed in old PCGS holder with blue label and standard ring insert. The asking price is quite reasonable as a certified example at the VF20 level would bring over $550.

Choice Original Gray, Rare Carson City Date, Conservative Grading. A choice original example struck by the Carson City mint during 1872. Though the 1872 date is the least challenging to locate amoung the big four Carson City dates (1871-CC, 1872-CC, 1873-CC, 1874-CC), finding strictly original and problem free examples is a completely different story. At GFRC, I believe in offering original coins and this also applies to the challenging Carson City dates from 1871 through 1874. One can always locate examples of these four dates as they appear at auction on a semi regular basis. More difficult is locating examples that are strictly original with no porosity or being messed with by those who attempt to enhance and retone surfaces. This piece is fully original with just honest wear. Surfaces are toned a natural light to medium gray and there are no blemishes to note. The Y in LIBERTY is weak but I have seen the TPGs assign a tad stronger grade due to originality on Carson City pieces. Housed in new NGC holder and fresh to market without CAC attempt. Fairly priced for the quality.

Strike is so typical for the F-105 variety with partial head and weakness in the lower shield and rock immediately to the left. The reverse is better struck with the diagnostic die crack in the lower right wreath (see web-book for more information). A close inspection with 10x loupe revealed no blemishes.

Surfaces are obviously original and are covered with a light to medium silver gray coloring that is a bit more mottled on the reverse.

Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Gem Original, Transparent Copper/Blue Patina, Conservative Grading, Colorado Collection. Yes, 1890 Philadelphia strikes are considered to be a common date in the Liberty Seated dime series. When locating gem mint state examples, I tend to shy away from blast while pieces and attempt to add examples with superior toning. This offering from the Colorado Collection definitely meets my standards. Cartwheel luster is bold and brash while the patina is a transparent copper blue. Strike is nearly full on obverse with a slight weakness at the top of Liberty's head along with incomplete wheat grains at the upper left wreath. Regardless, this piece is a flat out gem that will please even the most selective collector. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Conservative grading along with a Green CAC bean to validate the eye appeal. I love this piece and believe you will also.

Rare Date/Grade, CoinFacts Plate Coin, Light Gold Toning, Accurately Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. It give me great pleasure to be offering an 1855 New Orleans quarter at the EF45 grade level and a first for GFRC. This is such a difficult date at any grade level and to prove this statement, might I suggest that you visit CoinFacts. There are only (8) auction listings from Good 6 through AU58 with three of the eight being 2006 or earlier. Case made! The offered example is the CoinFacts plate coin at the EF45 grade level. It is not a strictly original example and, as a result, received a Market Acceptable quality rating. However, given the rarity, this is probably as good as it will get for most advanced collectors. This piece has been dipped in the past and is untoned except for some faint gold at the extreme rims. Strike is complete on the obverse with crisp devices and all stars having connected centrils. The reverse shows some weakness on the lower right wing and the arrow feathers. In terms of blemishes, there are none. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Choice Original Gray, Accurate Grading, Wisconsin Collection. The GFRC images well described the situation with this lovely 1861 Philadelphia struck half dollar. Surfaces are strictly original with light to medium gray patina that collectors appreciate. PCGS grading is accurate concerning the remaining device details. There are no blemishes to note whatsoever while strike is essential complete. Housed in 2015 generation PCGS holder. An excellent value at current asking price and typical of Wisconsin Collection quality.

Choice Frosty Surfaces, Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Heavily Clashed. Flashy cartwheel luster dominates on this lovely 1867 San Francisco struck half dollar. Surfaces are untoned and probably dipped prior to grading submission. Strike is full on the reverse while obverse has some weakness in stars 6 thru 9. This is a typical late die state WB-5 variety with heavily die clashing throughout obverse and reverse. Grading is quite conservative as I don't understand the basis for the assigned MS61 grade. There are a few wispy hairlines on the obverse but not prominent enought to justify a MS61 grade. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert. I would expect this piece to easily cross into PCGS holder or even secure an upgrade due to bold luster and near blemish free surfaces. Please note the GFRC images present this half as having some toning. This is not the case as surfaces are frosty white.

Near Choice, Uniform Gray Surfaces, Conservative Grading, Port Matilda Collection. A near choice Seated half that is well preserved with light to medium gray patina across obverse and reverse. Under bright light, a sky blue arc covers the date and surrounds portion of the reverse legend. Blemishes are miniumal for the Fine 15 assigned grade with only two toned obverse lines on the shield being noted. Without those lines, a Choice quality rating would have been assigned. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. A quality offering from the Port Matilda Collection to consider.

Gem Original, Sparkling Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded, Wisconsin Collection. Clearly this is the finest Trade dollar handled to date at GFRC. First year of the Trade dollar issue with 703,000 struck at the San Francisco mint. The offered example, from the Wisconsin Collection, is a wonderful gem worthy of the most selective collector. Brilliant cartwheel luster is stunning and immediately captures the viewer's attention. Toning is faint gold on the obverse and light gray-gold on the reverse. Strike is complete with nice rounded stars and deeply impressed eagle feathers. The AU58 assigned grade is accurate as there is faint rub on the Liberty's upper shoulder and the upper eagle wing tips. However, the eye appeal is consistent with many MS62 graded examples given there are no blemishes to discuss. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval is definitely warranted. A wonderful gem from the Wisconsin Collection that deserves special attention. In hand viewing at a coin show is advised.

Superb Eye Appeal, Choice Original, Wisconsin Collection. This is another one of those coins that screams, "Buy me now!" due to superb bullseye toning on the reverse and rich uniform rose/honey/peach in the obverse. My images are unable to do this lovely Morgan dollar justice. The obverse is covered with beautiful honey/peach toning while the reverse has deep rainbow bullseye patina. Bright light viewing is where this coin excels and you may just be hypnotized by the incredible colors and strong luster. Housed in pristine NGC fatty holder. I'm very confident that the buyer will be pleased with this acquisition. The NGC assigned MS63 grade is due to some blemishes on the cheek that are fully toned over and not a factor when inspecting this coin.

Rare Early Date and Grade, Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, CAC Candidate, Osprey Collection. What an awesome offering from the Osprey Collection! 1851 represents the second year of circulation strike $20 double eagle production at the Philadelphia Mint. Mintage is slightly over 2,000,000 for this Type I design date. This example is choice original with textured cartwheel luster and a strong candidate for CAC review. Abrasions are too a minimum for the assigned MS62 grade while cartwheel luster is so dominate and pleasing. Strike is bold and crisp. All stars are rounded with deep centrils while all vertical and horizontal shield lines are separated by deep channels. This lovely example offers plenty of eye appeal and natural coloration. Don't I enjoy just swirling the obverse and reverse under bright light to activate the flashy textured luster. A new arrival from Europe and has just been graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder without CAC review. A superb piece from the Osprey Collection for serious collectors of early $20 double eagles.

New December 30! Large Date Punch, Very Scarce Grade, Original Satiny Luster and Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. United States gold specialists indicate that the 1854 Large Date double eagle probably accounts for less than 10% of the original mintage of 757,899 piece. The Large Date punch is the same used on silver dollars and certain New Orleans eagles of that year. Uniform strike is seen throughout obverse and reverse; in particular the lower reverse shield and surrounding devices. Surfaces marks are consistent with the grade and expectations for this date. Residual luster has a satiny grainy texture. All Large Date examples will show a distinct die dot on Liberty's throat above the 8 digit. This diagnostic point is quite obvious on the offered example. Freshly sourced from Europe and housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder with no CAC attempt. Another important United States early gold offering from the Osprey Collection.

Faint rose hues are seen on the obverse during in hand inspection and definitely accentuated on the GFRC images. A tiny reverse mark is seen at (D)OL and above which appears to be a strike through error. A noteworthy offering from the Highwoods Collection that is housed in new large font NGC holder.
