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.

Original New Price
$500
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.

This offering is the rare Repunched High Date as listed in Redbook and not the more common Inverted Date variety. 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.

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.

Multi Color Patina, Iridescent Luster, Bold Strike, Accurately Graded, West Texas Collection. A colorful Civil War year half dime struck at the San Francisco mint. Mintage for the 1866 date is only 120,000 with survival rates being very low. PCGS has graded 12 examples as AU55 and 14 at the AU58 grade level; a tiny number for modern day collectors. This AU58 example is accurately graded and sports rainbow coloring including rose, gold, blues and aquamarine. Surfaces are frosty in texture while the strike is nearly complete with only the upper left reverse wheat grains being partially impressed. Viewing under a bright light exposure luster through the semi transparent patina. Also, there are several well toned over short field lines on the obverse that take careful scrutiny to identify. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. A pretty piece from the West Texas Collection in a very scarce grade.

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.

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.

A no question mint state example glowing luster under bright light that activatives golden and blue shades. One must inspect this piece in hand to appreciate as difficult to describe. GFRC images provide an idea of the in hand appearance but not the luster. A well struck dime with deeply impressed obverse devices and just a touch of weakness on the upper left reverse leaves. There are no blemishes whatsoever.

Original, Conservative Grading, Dallas Collection. Definitely a value play here as this 1862 San Francisco dime was conservatively graded by PCGS years ago. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Choice Original, Steel Gray Surfaces, Hammered Strike, Undergraded, Burchs Creek Collection. Wow! What a great strike on this 1828 Overton 118 half dollar as every star is perfectly rounded as are the individual hair curls. With a 10x loupe, micro die frost can be seen inside the hair curl recesses. In my humble opinion, this piece is undergraded and deserves extra points for the satiny cartwheel luster under a light source. Definitely a superior example that is housed in old white ANACS holder.

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.

New June 7! New Images and Price! Attractive Dual Sided Rainbow Toning, Gem Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Watch Hill Collection. First year of Morgan dollar issue with the early 7 Tail Feather reverse design. Then add in beautiful dual sided rainbow toning to enhance the offering. Multi color transparent toning floats on the surfaces and allows the brilliant cartwheel luster to radiate through and tickle the eyes during bright light viewing. PCGS grading is technically accurate as there are a few tiny scattered blemishes during 10x loupe inspection. An important opportunity for collectors attempting to build a Morgan date set with only dual sided quality toners. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval is definitely warranted for this naturally rainbow toned example along with accurately PCGS grading.

New June 7! New Images and Price! Amazing Dual Sided Toner, Better Grade, Gem Original, Watch Hill Collection. 1880 Philadelphia strikes at the MS65 grade level quickly move up the pricing curve with MS66 seeing a 3x increase. Now consider the stunning dual sided bullseye toning along with CAC approval for establishing fair value against the GFRC asking price. I believe potential buyers will understand my point. This gorgeous Morgan offers an obverse with medium aquamarine toning that migrates to rose-gold and ultimately deep teal-gray surrounding the stars. The reverse brings a more traditional bullseye rainbow appearance. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval is definitely warranted for the gem example. An important duplicate from the Watch Hill Collection that should be immediately purchased. Actually, let's make a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation!

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.

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.

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.
