Superb Gem Proof, Cameo Designation, Old Time Golden Toning, Accurately Grading, Winestevens Collection. This superb gem is among the finest Cameos certified by PCGS, showing immaculate surfaces and bold contrast on each side. The frosty design elements are sharply struck with every minute piece of mint frost being evident under a 10x loupe. The nickel alloy offers amazing steely proof cartwheel luster under a bright light. But while viewing in hand, the rich golden overlays are dominant as seen in the GFRC images. I'm falling in love with this incredible proof Shield nickel as it marries the qualities of cameo surfaces with old natural toning. At the PR66 Cameo level this date is quite difficult to locate, especially with CAC approval. This is an important offering housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. From the Winestevens Collection of fine numismatic properties.

New December 27! Gorman Pedigree, Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, CoinFacts JR-6 Plate Coin, PCGS Variety Attribution Error, Upstate New York Collection. There is much to discuss concerning this lovely 1831 Capped Bust half dime. One immediately notes the satiny cartwheel luster under a light source along with the aquamarine-gold patina. Strike is fully executed with no points of weakness whatsoever. There are a few field marks that are completely toned over and not distracting. Now let's discuss how PCGS got the die variety attribution wrong. This Capped Bust half is housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with JR-6 and Gorman listed on the label. Unfortunately this piece is not the JR-6 die pair but rather JR-1. To make matters more complicated, PCGS uses this dime as its JR-6 plate coin for CoinFacts display. After a very careful review of the John Reich reference, there is no question this piece is JR-1. Oh, well! Another fine offering from the Upstate New York Collection that belong in an advanced collection regardless of the attribution issue.

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.

Huge O Obverse Paired With Small O Reverse, Original Medium Gray, Marks, Indiana Collection. 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.

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.

Lapped Dies, Original Deep Gray Patina, One Reverse Mark, Indiana Collection. The 1841-O F-108a die variety and late die state features some of the most aggressive die lapping known in the Seated dime series. Whoever lapped the F-108 dies much have not been paying close attention. Much of the device details were removed with AU50 examples having removed drapery and center device details along with UNITED being almost eliminated. This example is one of the better seen in years of collecting the series. Surfaces are covered with thick gun metal gray-blue patina. There is an old time reverse line in the lower left wreath to rim that probably dates to early circulation. From the Indiana Collection.

Gem Original, Natural Blue-Rose Patina, Heavily Clashed Die State, Accurately Graded, Upstate New York Collection. Let's start off the description with the fact that I really like this dime due to the natural and untouched patina. This piece is a no question gem with thick blue gray toning that also includes rose on the obverse and aquamarine and yellow on the reverse. Under bright light, the baseline luster brings about a multi color glow especially on the reverse where the surfaces transition to deep blue. There are no blemishes whatsoever while the strike is nearly complete with the only weakness seen is at the upper left reverse wheat grains. Both the obverse and reverse dies are heavily clashed. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Another lovely toned offering from the Upstate New York Collection that deserves special consideration.

Rare Double Die Obverse, Top 100 Varieties, Light Gold Surfaces, Old Dip. The 1891 Double Die Obverse die pairing is an elusive entry in the Top 100 Seated Dime Varieties set. Few examples have been seen during my years of searching out this variety. Now the Indiana Collection consignor is offering an AU55 example with strong doubling throughout the shield and at AMERI(C)A. All F-109 examples are typically clashed with heavy die clash lines behind the main Liberty devices and within the wreath on the reverse. This example has seen a long ago dip and has retoned with a thin skin of golden patina. Many Top 100 set collectors need this variety and an important opportunity.

Choice Original, Early Die State, Scarce Date. A strictly original example of the scarce 1833 date with natural gray coloring framed by darker shades at the rim. Both in hand and bright viewing are similar and consistent with images. After inspecting nearly all 1833 capped bust halves seen in EF or better, most are seen with varying degrees of die rust. I added this choice example to inventory since being struck by dies that are in perfect condition. A detailed 10x inspection reveal do traces of die pitting, rather the strike is crisp with sharp curls and all eagles nicely defined. I would recommend this AU example for those seeking an original Capped Bust quarter for type set that has a story and some character. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Please note that the light obverse area at 11:00 is typical lighting reflections during photography.

This 1848 Seated quarter is accurately graded and strictly original. Frosty devices and satiny fields are immediately evident when viewed. Strike is complete with bold main devices. This piece is accurately graded against strict standards as there is minimal but evident wear. There is one faint toned over obverse line from foot to star 13 that holds back a Choice quality rating otherwise the eye appeal is sufficient for a higher quality assignment.

Now that we understand the rarity of this die variety and date, let's take a look at the Port Matilda offering. Firstly, this is not a buy and resell event via GFRC. Portl Matilda consignor is divesting duplicates towards raising cash for a substantial acquisition. This offering is strictly original with natural toned surfaces and no blemishes whatsoever.

A severe die crack through the first 8 digit in the date has effaced the right side of digit. The latest AMBPR shows multiple auction appearance between 2009 to 2012 for pieces graded AU and realizing between $975 to $2300. The offered example is accurately graded given the cracked obverse die. There is remaining mint frost in the protected areas between stars and rim and inside the reverse claws and olive leaves.

Now the Upstate New York Collection is releasing a freshly graded example that is housed in new large font NGC holder. There are no auction records for this piece is completely fresh. Now let's discuss the coin itself. Reflective luster is crisp throughout obverse and reverse and reminds me the 1847 NGC AU58 CAC Seated dollar on current price list. A choice original example with thin blue and gold toning rim surround the stars. The balance of the obverse is faint gray-rose. Moving to the reverse, the eagle has light gold coloring and is surrounded by gray fields up to the legend when gold and blue rings preside. Strike is full and nicely executed. Blemish wise, there is one short line in the right obverse field that will be exposed during bright light viewing due to reflective fields. Fairly priced due to scarcity and eye appeal. Not every 1841 AU half that arrives to the market is as attractive as this offering.

Civil War Philadelphia strike dates are always in demand and relatively scarce in the market place when choice. Mintage is a low 379,100 when compared to corresponding San Francisco issue.

Even at the EF45 grade level, there is residual luster seen during bright light viewing. Strike is fully executed with no points of weakness. And finally, there are no blemishes to complain about. Overall, a well balance and choice 1864 Philadelphia offering that should garner attention. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Gem Proof Surfaces, Mirrored Cartwheel Luster, Attractive Toning, Conservative Grading, Winesteven Collection. Unfortunately this gem 1883 half is a proof strike rather than circulation strike. If a circulation strike, it would be sold multiple times due to gorgeous toning and bold strike. As a proof strike, this 1883 half is also spectacular and should be carefully considered. Accurately designated as a proof cameo by PCGS and graded MS64. The obverse olive-rose-gold patina is completely transparent to the underlying mirrors that are incredibly reflective under a light source. Gorgeous sky blue results when the obverse is slightly tilted! Uniform rose patina, along with a thin sky blue arc at the rim, dominates the reverse appearance. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. This 1883 PCGS PF64CAM CAC half is so attractive that I'm making a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation.

The 1936 half dollar has the second lowest mintage (3901 coins) of proofs struck during the 1936 to 2000 era, with only the 1936 Washington quarter having a slightly lower mintage. Scarce in any grade and rare in Superb Gem condition along with being the rarest proof  Walking Liberty half dollar. This gem example offers watery mirrors and hammered strike. There is a faint amount of reverse toning that has been over emphasized by GFRC images. Speaking of the GFRC images, they leave much to be desired with the coin in hand being significantly more attractive and pleasing. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval.

Original Flashy Frosty Luster, Accurately Graded, Union Bridge Collection. Ok, I need to make a confession...this is the first mint state Seated dollar handled by GFRC. I've sold several mint state Trade Dollars and now moving quickly into Liberty Seated dollars as so much fun to explore new denominations. This piece is a fitting start though well known to be a common date in high grades after several bags of 1859-O and 1860-O date examples were released by the U.S. Mint from their banks vaults. One immediately appreciates the bold flashy luster that is strictly original. I doubt that this dollar has ever been dipped as the frosty luster is bold. The assigned MS62 grade is to be expected due to some bag marks as is seen on most mint state examples. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert.

The rose center is framed by a bluish ring over the thin wreath and IN GOD WE TRUST. Outside that ring are golden rose shares. All the toning is activated by flashy luster. Surfaces are essentially free including a clean cheek. The luster must be grade limiting as I can't justify the MS64 grade based on marks. Housed in newer NGC holder.

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.

Obviously a common date given a mintage of slightly over 4,000,000. The challenge for collectors is locating a perfectly original example that is fully strike and had old time copper gold coloring. The Winesteven consignor is a most selective collector and has made a point of only adding superb examples, for the TPG grade, to his collection. This 1853 gold dollar is a no question gem with every minute die frost detail being transferred to the coin. Mint frost is omnipresent on the obverse and surrounds the legend and the 1 digit on the reverse. An ideal example for an advanced gold dollar date and mintmark set. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. A superb offering from the Winesteven Collection that is priced consistent with MS64 CAC auction records on CoinFacts.

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.

It certainly is not, however, and while not exactly a great rarity in the lower grades, it is rare in AU or uncirculated condition." This example offers lightly mirrored fields and reflective luster.

Choice Original, Active Cartwheel Luster, CAC Candidate, Eye Appeal, Osprey Collection. This choice 1902 $20 double eagle is superior for the assigned grade and deserves special consideration. Why? Let's visit the PCGS population reports for that answer. There are (214) graded MS62 dropping to only (80) in MS63 with price guide jumping from $4500 to $11500. Many of those in the MS62 population are regrade attempts so my guess is that the MS62 population may be closer to (150). Locating a borderline MS63 for MS62 money should be the collector's challenge in obtaining maximum value and resale opportunity. This Osprey offering is one of the borderline MS63 pieces. Vibrant cartwheel luster dominates with few if any marks. The reverse is especially lustrous. Strike is complete with nicely rounded stars and deeply impressed reverse details.
