Huge O, Choice Original, Birmingham Collection. This is one of the better examples seen while working with the Liberty seated dime series. Most Huge O dimes comes with some type of problem and strictly problem free examples in EF or better grades are rare. So along comes this wonderful example from the Birmingham Collection. Accurately graded and very close to EF due to the lapped obverse die and well worn reverse from 1838. Surfaces are covered with strictly original and uniform gun metal gray patina with hints of blue and rose intermixed. Strike is bold validates this is a middle die state example since there is no die crack from (U)NITED to the rim. In terms of blemishes, there are a few fully toned over old lines on the obverse but given this piece's grade rarity, they don't bother me in the least and should not bother the buyer. Housed in old NGC holder with standard circular insert. As a serious student of the Liberty Seated dime series, I enjoy handling consignment dimes that bring a good balance of quality, rarity and eye appeal.

Transitional Closed Bud Reverse, Large O, Original Medium Gray Patina, Top 100 Varieties Set #19, AuburnNY Accordian Collection.

This example is so typical with an obverse that grades full Good but with a badly worn reverse. PCGS assigned an AG03 grade which is accurate. Surfaces are toned over with original gray patina. This piece is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. The PCGS label has everything one needs to know about this variety, Trans Rev, Lg O, Sm Lett, FS-902 (FS-003.3), F-101.

Type 2 Reverse, Polished and Shattered Reverse, Frosty Luster, Light Gray Toning, Top 100 Varieties Opportunity, Murphys Collection. Price Reduction June 2020 - The 1878 Carson City F-104 die pairing, in its final die state, featured Obverse 2 paired with a left over and shattered reverse die from 1877. This 1877-CC Type 2 reverse die was previously paired with at least two obverse dies during 1877 production. During the 1877-CC F-110 pairing the reverse die is severely cracked. Ahwash speculates that the reverse die shattered, taking away the lower left ribbon and part of the bottom of the left maple leaf. After studying the 1877-CC Type 2 F-110 plate coin, in my reference collection, and this 1878-CC F-104 shattered reverse coin side by side, I believe that the die was severely polished or lapped throughout its face to produce the remaining coinage order for 1878 calendar year. There is a reduction in details throughout this reverse die, not only in the lower left wreath area. A shattering or cracking of the die in the lower wreath would have produced retained metal, instead we find a smooth polish surface with little device details in the lower left wreath. Similarly, the 1878-CC F-102 and F-103 reverse dies also exhibit similar weakness in the lower left wreath and left ribbon area. I suspect that all three Type2 reverse dies may have been left over from 1877 and were polished or lapped before being put into service for 1878 coinage. This newly offered example is important due to limited circulated and visual access to the remaining reverse devices. The heavy concentric reverse die crack is bold and visible during 10x loupe inspection. Surfaces are choice and original. Obverse luster is frosty while reverse luster is more reflective do to the reverse die polishing. There are no abrasions worthy of mention. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder without die variety attribution on the label. A wonderful Top 100 Varieties offering from the Murphys Collection to consider. The new owner should consider adding the F-104 and Top 100 designation to the label.

Superior eye appeal is an a excellent reason to consider this 1838 No Drapery offering from the Kansas Collection. Like other Liberty Seated silver pieces in that collection, attractive blue, green and rose toning colors were the imperative.

Price Reduction - July 2020 - A popular date punch size die variety in the Liberty Seated quarter series. The 1842-O Small Date was recognized as a major variety as early as 1881, when it was catalogued in John Haseltine’s Type Table. During 2007-2008 timeframe, the LSCC membership voted it number 6 on the list of greatest New Orleans Seated coins. This offering brings a unique appearance as compared to others handled. The aquamarine-blue fields nicely frame the rose colored main devices with cameo contrast. Rims are bold and complete with the coin seeing nothing but honest wear followed by extended storage.

This example exhibits even "coin gray" with no major distractions. The 1847-O quarter is notorious for weak strikes, an effect that is somewhat muted on lower grade examples such as this. Normal circulation wear tends to blend with the incomplete strike and coiner's lack of attention becomes less distracting. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

Proof Repunched Date Obverse, Original Gun Metal Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Top 25 Varieties, Lenny Rizzo Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter is a scarce coin in any grade. This date is more available in high grades such as AU and Mint State, and less available in circulated condition. This is probably due to the issue having little time to circulate prior to the weight change of 1853. The 1852 date also features a rare and interesting die variety, the 1852/52 repunched date listed by Briggs as 1-A and also included in the Top 25 Varieties set by Greg Johnson. 1852/852 examples are rare with obvious repunching on the 852 digits. The date position is also unique so that attribution is straightforward even for lower graded coins. This obverse was also used to strike two known proofs. The offered example is well preserved with original gun metal gray patina. Strike is typical for the date with some stars lacking connected centrils. Repunching below the flag of the 5 digit and below the upper loop of the 2 digit is easily seen with 10x loupe. Blemishes are limited to a single well toned over line on Liberty's left facing breast to right top shield point.

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.

Rest assured this example is 100% genuine, and scarce at that. The 1863 Philadelphia mintage is on the low side for a Philadelphia Seated quarter, as the Mint saw little precious bullion arrive at its doors during the Civil War.

Indeed, PCGS has certified just over a hundred pieces in all business strike grades combined. Although highly reflective, this piece is clearly a circulation strike, with weakness starting to form in BER of LIBERTY. The date is level and matches Briggs’ obverse die 1, which was used for business strikes. The untoned, bright centers lead to blue and russet rim toning on both sides, a pleasing effect. Marks are more evident, as expected with reflective surfaces, but still consistent with the grade designation. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.5 (2011-2013) holder.

The coin was clearly struck from the Briggs 2-B (proof) dies, with the telltale upward slope in the date. However, proofs of this date exhibit strong stars throughout, while this example features weaker stars to the left. No representation is made as to how the services will treat this in the future, but, in our opinion, this coin is a business strike from the proof dies - a not an uncommon event in the U.S 19th century coinage.

This piece is typical of how many CC quarters come, with an arguably VG obverse, while the reverse is less detailed and reveals rims that blend into the legend. Apart from a few horizontal obverse hairlines the surfaces are smooth for the grade, and the light gray color is exactly what one would expect for a coin of this vintage, with darker shades outlining the major design elements.

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.

Price Reduction June 2020 - An attractive 1846 Tall date example that has been well preserved. Frosty cartwheel luster is immediately evident during bright light viewing. Obverse toning consists of variegated lilac while faint rose-gold covers the reverse along with deeper blue at the periphery. Strike is nearly complete with only stars 12 and 13 lacking fully formed centrils. The reverse is particular well struck including multiple die cracks from HALF DOL to rim and more cracks at STATES OF. Obvere die cracks are also present and consistent with WB-12 diagnostics points. Blemishes are limited to a few ticks in the right obverse field. Accurately graded and housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. Another quality duplicate from the Newtown Collection to consider. Please note that this piece last sold at Heritage Auction during February 2018 and realized essentially the current asking price.

New June 17! WB-13, CSA Administration, Bisecting Die Crack Through Date, Dipped White, Typical W-13 Strike, Accurately Graded. Price Reduction June 2020 - A popular example of the CSA administration strike with bisecting die crack through the date. The W-13 die pairing was employed during April 1861 under the administration of the Confederate States of America. This variety is easily recognized by a vertical bisecting die crack from the rim through the upright of the 6 digit into the base. This EF40 graded example has been dipped and is an even white with faint gold patina under a light source. Strike is so typical of the W-13 variety with weakness at the stars surrounding Liberty's head and on the reverse denomination. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. The WB-103 die variety is not listed on the PCGS label. An important duplicate, from the Newtown Collection, for serious students of the United States Civil War period.

GFRC is thoroughly pleased to be offering an important Liberty Seated half dollar die variety rarity; 1876-S WB-42 WB-103 Type 2 (Closed Bud) reverse with a Very Small Mintmark.

Absolutely fresh to market and freshly graded at the FUN show for a consignor. Expert Liberty Seated numismatists believe this variety was specially struck to commemorate the nation's Centennial celebrations given the atypical mirrored fields. Hammered strike consistent with that seen on regular proof strikes. Light peripheral gold is found on both sides. Currently, the fourth finest known among the major Liberty Seated half dollar specialists within the LSCC. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Price setting for a variety of this caliber is difficult.

New June 17! Gem Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Transparent Aquamarine-Rose and Blue Patina, Superior Eye Appeal, Completely Struck, Fairly Graded, Newtown Collection. Price Reduction June 2020 - How about another stunning Liberty Seated half dollar offering from the Newtown Collection? This gem original 1877 San Francisco strike has much to offer for those that seek the best possible coins for their collection. In hand toning is a combination of aquamarine and rose-brown colors as illustrated in the GFRC images. Bright light viewing exposes satiny cartwheel luster that is so close to being reflective. This assessment is quite subjective on my part. The luster is brilliant and melts the transparent toning. The result is light rose and sky blue colors on the obverse and incremental gold on the reverse. Strike is complete without any weak points. There is one obverse hairline from Liberty's knee up to star 10. Knowing John Albanese's requirements for mint state coin CAC approval, I suspect this single hairline will not pass muster for a green bean. Otherwise, this piece is a gem and accurately graded with superb eye appeal. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Carson City Key Date, Choice Original, Natural Gray Patina, Clearly Superior to All Auction in Past Decade, Philadelphia Collection. Price Reduction for Immediatel Sale - Ex. Kam Ahwash. The only known dies. Rarity-4+. The 1873-CC Seated Liberty dollar brings a low mintage of 2,300 pieces and status as the rarest Seated dollar issue from the Carson City Mint. The 1871-CC date has a lower mintage of 1376, but the 1873 issue has a lower survival rate. There is speculation that many 1873 dated pieces were melted later in the year to provide bullion for the new Trade dollars. This is a remarkable offering that has been stored in the estate of an early Liberty Seated Collectors Club member for decades and is being brought to market by his daughter. The Philadelphia Collection includes seventeen Seated dollars with the 1873-CC being the finest condition. A choice example that is heads and shoulders above those VF25-VF30 offerings seen at major auction during the past decade. Crusty gray patina covers both sides and is well captured in the GFRC images. All major design elements are bold at the assigned VF25 grade level. Fields have light contact marks that are ancient. A substantial offering that should capture the attention of advanced Liberty Seated dollar and Carson City Mint enthusiasts. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 style holder. The original Kam Ahwash handwritten flip insert is also included.
