V-4, Original Surfaces, Clipped Planchet, Formerly ANACS AU50 Details Holder, Slight Bend, West Texas Collection. Initial year of circulated strike half dime coinage with tiny mintage of 7,756 piece. The offered example has original gray surfaces and is in remarkably good condition but does have a rim compression issue at obverse 10:00 that resulted in a slightly bent planchet. If looking closely at the GFRC images one see the clipped planchet at obverse 4:00. This piece was previously submitted to ANACS where they assigned an AU50 Details, Bent opinion. The blue ANACS label remains with the piece. Here are my thoughts on this early piece as the surfaces are original with natural gray patina. If you can look beyond the rim issue, this piece provides an attractive option as a value type coin. Checking CoinFacts, there are two PCGS EF45 examples that sold 6/16 ($7600) and 3/15 ($5900), none in AU50 and two in AU53 that sold 7/13 ($11750) and 5/13 ($11200). This is the price range for a certified example. The West Texas Collection is a no question AU50 example with original surfaces. We are offering at $3750 and consistent with the limited VF20 auction records. The goal is to sell this rare initial year example into a type coin collection with the buyer being pleased with the value.

V-6, Original Surfaces, Gun Metal Gray Patina, Remaining Luster, Obverse Scratches, West Texas Collection. A popular selection for a United States half dime type set as the mintage is 78,660 resulting in higher availability than the first year 1794 strikes. The offered example strictly original with ample remaining luster and gun metal gray patina throughout obverse and across portions of the reverse. Bright light viewing is a lot of fun as this early piece offers a gold toning ring surrounding the stars and light blue hues at the reverse legend. This half dime was previously holdered by ANACS with AU50 Details, Scratched opinion. These ancient scratches are located on the obverse; two parallel lines in front of Liberty's chin and two parallel lines up from the date into Liberty's bust. This piece is very well struck with bold hair curls and small eagle details. Pricing a nice original coin with a technical issue is always challenging. CoinFacts was employed to set the asking price. Specifically, we found several NGC auction records for AU50 Details examples and set the price accordingly. Frankly, I like the West Texas piece much better than either of the NGC AU50 Detail listings due to strictly originality and bright light viewing.

Original Surfaces, Compressed Rims, Uniform Gun Metal Gray Patina, West Texas Collection. A nice 1801 half dime with strictly original surfaces. Formerly graded by ANACS and housed in their newer generation blue label holder before being cracked out by the West Texas consignor. ANACS opinion was stated as EF40 Details, Damaged Bent. While the surfaces are covered with gun metal gray patina, the rims have been compressed at several points. I don't understand the "Bent" issue as this piece lays perfectly flat on a flat surface. Rims have been compressed at obverse 10:00 and 4:00 but retain the original gray toning. I don't see the rim issue as being significantly distracting once placed in a type set album. Pricing an original early type piece with a technical issue is always challenging as being fair to GFRC customer and consignor are important. Since there are no EF40 Details listings in CoinFacts for the 1801 date, we priced this piece at Fine 12 auction results. An interesting offering from the West Texas Collection.

V-3, Small 8, R6 Rarity, Old Cleaned, Obverse Scratches, West Texas Collection. A legitimate R6 variety in the Draped Bust half dime series according to Logan-McCloskey reference. Previously graded EF40 Details by ANACS and housed in their blue label holder. Obverse details are closer to AU grade with two horizontal pin scratches. I would grade the reverse as VF30. This piece has been cleaned/dipped and recovered color by sitting an old paper album for years. Golden patina covers the obverse while the reverse remains essentially untoned. This is another rare early piece with issues that is difficult to price. The LM-1 Small 8 variety is recognized by PCGS price guide and listed as approximately 25 known. The most recent auction appearance occurred May 2015 at Stacks auction where a PCGS AU58 realized $50,000. Prior to that example, a PCGS EF40 example with clipped planchet sold for $5200 during March 2011. I believe the asking price allows a die variety specialist the opportunity to acquire this rarity without breaking the bank.

Underrated Date, Old Clean/Retoning, Sharp Device Details, West Texas Collection. Last year in the Heraldic Eagle series and the last half dime struck until 1829. Mintage is a tiny 15,000 pieces from one die pair. A scarce and underrate date with auctions results matching PCGS price guide levels. The offered example has seen an old cleaning resulting in dull gray surfaces. Over the years, the rims have acquired an ebony gray coloring. Device details are sharp with assigned EF40 Details grade being accurate. Problems on this example are relatively minor given the low mintage and survival rate. Asking price is at the F15/VF20 price level which is quite fair.

Strike with a heavily clashed reverse die that includes a die rust patch below the bow ribbons. Surfaces are original with soft satiny luster. Strike is complete with some rub on the left breast and lower leg. Since writing this description without the LSCC Collective Volumes, I'm unable to provide a detailed history on prior die usage.

A realistic ratio of ten Inverted Dates seen for every Repunched Date is probably realistic and suggests that this example is worthy of attention for the variety specialist. The reverse is strictly original with light gray patina while the obverse has an old clean with some faint hairlines under close 10x loupe inspection.

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.

Clashed/Cracked Obverse, Top 100 Varieties, Original Gray Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Indiana Collection. This 1837 Large Date F-101c example definitely warrants consideration! 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.

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.

Cleaned New Price
$185
Repunched 8, Rare 1845 Date Variety, R6 Rarity, Old Album Retoning. The 1845 F-102a is such a rare and under appreciated die state variety among Liberty Seated collectors. The extra repunched top loop of the 8 digit is visible between 9:00 and 12:00 on this example and is seldom seen offered. To provide an explanation on the F-102a variety, following is an extraction from the Liberty Seated Dime web-book. So when was the Variety 102a dime struck? Could the repunching over the 8 digit be visible only when the obverse strike is very bold? Could the Variety 102a variety be a bold strike die state of the Obverse 1 and Reverse C.2 die pairing? I believe this to be the case. The continuing difficulty in locating an example of this variety versus the general availability of other 1845 repunched varieties, would suggest a striking anomaly or die state phenomenon as a potential explanation. The repunching of the 8 digit on Obverse 1 could have been present on the die for a considerable time. However, the repunching is very shallow on the face of the die, requiring a strong strike to pass an imprint to the planchet in the die press. The offered example has been lightly cleaned in the past and is retoning. I've assigned a Cleaned quality rating as the cleaning was substantial while this piece has not fully recovered.

This dime has been lightly cleaned in the past and has recovered with uniform gold patina throughout obverse and reverse. Under bright light, some of the old cleaning hairlines still remain.

Top 100 set building should immediately jump on this example and not think too hard. This choice example is covered with medium gun metal gray patina and conservatively graded. The $250 asking price is a bargain considering the amount of searching that will be necessary to locate a better example. From the Indiana Collection.

There are several Top 100 varieties that I have deep respect for including the 1877 F-105 MPD and the 1891 F-109 Double Die Obverse due to the inability to locate after so many years of searching. This 1891 F-109 example, from the Indiana Collection, has been cleaned and is slowly recovering a gray patina along with some gold hues under bright light. Frankly, if you are pursuing a Top 100 set, this offering may be an excellent filler for the variety until a strictly original example appears. Again, this is a most difficult variety to locate with the assigned R5 rarity being conservative.

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.

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.

Choice Original, Golden Gray Patina, Conservative Grading, Union Bridge Collection. Strike variability was a substantial issue for the early Philadelphia mint on large denomination coinage. Obverse relief was a problem area and even today, grading Draped Bust halves can be challenging. I mention these thoughts to frame the description of this lovely 1807 half dollar from the Union Bridge Collection. Let's start with the surfaces; strictly original and choice with no blemishes to discuss. Early PCGS grading is quite conservative as this half must be graded by the reverse and not the obverse due to shallow relief. Please check the eagles wing tips and boldly defined shield lines on the reverse to validate that VF25 is more than fair as the assigned grade. Housed in PCGS old green holder. The old green holder label uses the early PCGS designation of DRAPE BUST and not Draped Bust as is currently seen on new holders.

R3 marriage, R6 die state, Hanes Park Collection. Another scarce base Overton variety rated R3 coupled with R6 late die state as within AMBPR (Auction and Mail Bid Prices Realized by Steve Herrmann). The 104(b) die state diagnostics include bold die crack to the right of Star 7 down into cap and a die crack connecting Stars 8 through 13. 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. Surfaces have an even light gray appearance from long ago cleaning though no hairlines are present. Definitely a rare variety for the advanced bust half dollar collector.

Old Album Toning, Exceptional Eye Appeal, Value Priced. A better Overton variety 1827 Capped Bust half with square based 2 digit. Eye appeal is substantial on this attractive example. Centers are toned a light gray with rose hues while the rims quickly transition to aquamarine and blues surrounding the stars and reverse legend. The obverse has some faint hairlines suggesting that this piece was stored in an old album for years after a light dipped or wipe. There are many capped bust halves with secondary toning that do certify and this piece has a shot. For the collector who still appreciates raw early type coins at are attractive.

50/00, Gem Original, Eye Appeal, Gray/Brown Patina, Conservative Grading, Burchs Creek Collection. When writing descriptions for individual coins, I will typically swirl the piece under bright to gain a sense of the attractiveness and eye appeal. When viewing this 1836 50/00 example, I immediately noticed the remaining reflective luster under medium gun metal gray patina. Once under a light source, the gray patina melts and allows gold, blue and brown coloring to emerge. Surfaces are perfect with no blemishes whatsoever and the overall appearance is that of a superior original silver piece. A Gem quality rating is listed and deserved. If in an accurately graded TPG holder, then this pieces should easily meet CAC approval. Housed in old white ANACS holder with "CAP BUST 50/00 O-116" on the label. Asking price is strong given the overall quality but offers are welcomed.

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.

Don't I like this 1885 San Francisco struck Morgan that has been freshly graded by PCGS add designated as MS64. Not only is this a better Morgan date in mint state grade but also a dual sided toner with attractive patina. Radiant cartwheel luster couples with rich rose, gold and aquamarine toning resulting in a Gem quality rating. A superb offering from the Fort Lauderdale Collection.

Choice Original, Copper Rose Patina, Alexandria Collection. This is an interesting Morgan that has required some incremental study. The toning is a fairly uniform copper rose coloring that exposes golden hues under a light source. While the obverse is uniform in color, the reverse offers several color rings. 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.
