What an amazing 1848 Liberty Seated half dime from an eye appeal perspective let alone the 1848/48 V-7 FS-302 die variety. As indicated in the GFRC images, this lovely example offers bold devices from a hammered strike. Cartwheel luster is vibrant with frosty textures and so pleasing. Transparent lavendar-rose patina covers both sides with lighter shades on the reverse. Dies are also heavily clashed as is so often seen on well struck with stars specimens. The 1848 date has a report mintage of 668,000 and is a rarity in MS65 or better. PCGS population report indicates only 1 graded at MS65 and another at MS66. NGC shows six in MS65 and one MS66 finer. This NGC graded example has no CoinFacts or Heritage auctions records. Heritage auctioned a PCGS MS65 CAC approved V-7 during May 2015 for $3525 as the only point of comparison.

A gem original example of the scarce 1855-O date that every serious half dime collector needs in their collection. Mintage is 600,000 but a low survival rate makes locating choice examples rather difficult let along a gem AU58 specimen. PCGS population report indicates only 9 in all EF grades and 21 in all AU grades. This AU58 example is accurately graded and offers wonderful medium rose patina with darker blue highlights. More important is the original cartwheel luster that drove the Gem quality rating. Housed in old NGC Fatty holder (Generation 3 1987 - 1989). CAC approval is absolutely warranted.

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.

Near Gem Original, Completely Struck, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Upstate New York Collection. In 1856, arrows were removed from silver coinage as most heavier weight coins had been removed from circulation. That year, the Philadelphia Mint produced nearly 5 million half dime but fully struck examples are quite scarce. Many examples show weakness on the denticles as is the case for this lovely 1856 example from the Upstate New York Collection. Regardless of the denticles, this accurately graded example offers pretty iridenscent gold and aquamarine toning along with active cartwheel luster. Other than the denticles, the balance of the coin is fully struck with rounded stars and complete wreath leaves. Surfaces are absolutely original and choice. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An ideal example for the collector assembling a complete set of Seated half dimes at the AU/MS level. CAC approval captures the accurate grading, originality and overall eye appeal.

These lines are old and fully toned over. The reverse is blemish free. Pricing is fair given the overall quality and rarity.

Regardless the strike is exceptional and offers substantial device details. Surfaces are strictly original with lovely golden gray patina that is darker and more uniform on the obverse. A close 10x loupe inspection revealed a few ticks on the lower gown while the reverse is blemish free. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Gem Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. Building a complete set of Liberty Seated dimes at the mint state level was a long challenging project since I was strict about only acquiring dimes that met three criteria; originality, complete strikes and eye appeal. The 1859 Philadelphia date was particularly difficult to fill as most examples are found with weak or uneven strikes. It took nearly 20 years to locate an example that met my strict requirements. That example is being offered here today. One immediately notes the absolutely hammered strike throughout obverse and reverse. Stars are bold and round as are the head and gown line. The reverse wreath leaves and veins are deeply impressed. The piece is no question original with a minute layer of die frost throughout Liberty and the shield. Fields are also frosty with no disturbances. Toning is subtle with faint gold mostly at the obverse and reverse rim. There is bold cartwheel luster than one would expect from a Seated dime at the MS66 grade level. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert as validation that I do not play the crack out and upgrade game. This lovely 1859 dime is also the F-107 web-book plate coin and will remain that way. A strong candidate for individual building a high grade set of Liberty Seated dimes.

The New England Museum Specimen, Probably the Finest 1866 Business Strike Extant, Superb Gem Original, Cold Quarters Collection. GFRC is incredibly proud to be offering probably the finest 1866 circulation strike dime in existence. Last sold at Stack's auction during May 2013 where it realized $12,925 and now returning to the market. Following is the Stack's 2013 auction description as difficult to improve upon; "Rare in all grades with a mintage of a mere 8,000 pieces for circulation, the 1866 dime is very difficult to find in Gem grades. The attractive surfaces are graced by splendid gunmetal-blue and russet toning on both sides. Held in a museum collection for generations, this coin was recently consigned to our auction and sent to PCGS, where it was graded as one of the finest seen by that service. A sharp and full strike is apparent on all the devices and both dies show light clashing evidence in the fields. An incredible quality coin." Housed in the original 2013 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. An amazing late Civil War artifact that belongs in the finest of collections.

Superb Gem, Brilliant Reflective Luster, Mirrored Fields, Aquamarine-Gold Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Cold Quarters Collection . GFRC is pleased to be offering an amazingly well preserved 1867 circulation strike dime that is in the condition census. Don't bother searching for auction records on CoinFacts as there are none for this incredible specimen. 1867 Philadelphia strikes have the honor of the lowest mintage (6,000) with the Liberty Seated dime series. Several were preserved by east coast collectors of the period and much to the pleasure of 21st century Liberty Seated enthusiasts. This specimen is indeed special with brilliant reflective luster that originates from polished dies and mirrored fields. A transparent aquamarine-gold patina is evident during in hand viewing and is well captured by the GFRC images. Darker hues are evident at the peripheries. Bright light viewing is simply stunning as the obverse exposures speckled rose, green, yellow and gold shades while the reverse has a sky blue ring between rim and cereal wheat. Strike is very well executed with only the upper left reverse wheat grains not complete impressed. Housed in older blue PCGS Security holder with standard ring insert and CAC approval. The aged holdered is from a conservative grading era that produced an MS66+ designation that I am fully comfortable with.

New May 18! Top 100 Varieties Key Date, Double Die Obverse, One of Finest Extant, Frosty Luster, Bold Doubling Details, Accurately Graded, Cold Quarters Collection. One of the key dates in the Top 100 Liberty Seated Dime Varieties set and in the condition census for preservation state. One of the finest examples of the Doubled Die Obverse F-103 variety (Cherrypickers' FS-101) struck with bold die doubling at the shied. The right portion of Liberty's shield exhibits a wide and dramatic double impression, rotated 20° clockwise. Additional die doubling is seen below the scroll and within the lower shield. A misplaced digit in the dentils, below the 73 digits, may also be present as well, but it is much less prominent and pales in comparison to the spectacular die doubling. The offer example has probably been dipped and presents untoned mirrored fields and frosty silver devices. The assigned MS61 grade is accurate given faint micro lines in the left obverse field seen under a 10x loupe. Regardless, this is one of the three finest F-105 examples known. The other two are the Simpson and Gardner examples, both graded PCGS AU58 CAC, followed by the Fortin PCGS AU55 specimen. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert.

Choice Original, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. 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.

Underrated Date, Old Album Rainbow Peripheral Toning, Mirrored Fields, Accurately Graded, Upstate New York Collection. Repunched 18. An underrated date overall with few examples reaching the current market. At the AU58 grade level, PCGS has certified 11 along with another 9 total in MS61/MS62. Given the number of active Liberty Seated half dollar collectors, this number is small. 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.

A superior 1877 San Francisco struck Trade dollar graded PCGS MS63+ with CAC approval.   NGC and PCGS have graded 379 Trade Dollars at the MS63 or 63+ level, while CAC has approved only 17 of those 379; a 4% rate.  This offering from the Winesteven Collection is one of those 17. As a remaining collector at heart, here at GFRC, I'm in love with this 1877-S Trade dollar due to the perfect balance of frosty cartwheel luster, a balanced strike and no question originality even if the surfaces are untoned. A perfect original specimen that warranted a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS 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.

Gem Original, Orange Gold Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Winesteven Collection. A gorgeous Type 1 design struck in 1853 at the Philadelphia mint. 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.

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.

Earlier Date, Choice Original, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. A lovely 1855 $5 half eagle offering from the Port Matilda Collection. Dave Akers relates the following concerning this date in the $5 series, "Like many other Philadelphia Mint Half Eagles of the 1840's and 1850's the 1855 is often considered to be a relatively common date. 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. Blemishes are minimal. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with edge ring insert and ready for a home in a new collection.

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. This piece is fresh from Europe and recently graded. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder without CAC attempt. A choice and quality piece from the Osprey Collection.
