Liberty Seated Dollars
Seated $1 1844 1844
Choice $13000 New May 18! Rare Grade, Doubled Die Obverse, Golden Coloration, Partially Mirrored Fields . Consignor Price Reduction - Only 20,000 1844 dated Seated dollar were struck with a doubled obverse die which easily validates this offering as a circulation strike. With 10x, four stripes on each of the vertical shield lines is easily confirmed. This is a challenging date which is seldom offered at the Mint State level. PCGS population report indicates nine at grade with four finer. Light golden toning is evident on both sides with darker shades at the date and a horizontal toning band on the reverse. Partially mirrored fields result in reflective luster under angled lighting. A lovely example for the advanced collector. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder. This piece has proven difficult to photograph leading to the decision to employ the PCGD TruView for proper presentation.
Seated $1 1846 1846
Choice $3650 New April 18! Superbly Preserved, Rose-Gray Obverse Patina, Pristine Steely Fields, Fully Struck. An attractive and well preserved 1846 Seated dollar that warrants attention. Steely fields issue notable reflectance under angled lighting. This a fully choice example with intermixed mottled aquamarine, rose, and gray shades on the obverse while the reverse sports patches of olive surrounded by midnight blues. Fields are essentially unabraded and most pleasing during a 10x inspection. Worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Housed in new large font NGC holder. Please note that the images emphasize greenish shades while the coin in hand will exhibit strong rose tones.

EF Details PCGS
Market Acceptable HOLD
Challenging Philadelphia Issue, Excellent Eye Appeal, JUST BUY IT NOW, New Jersey Collection. What a crime with respect to this lovely 1861 Liberty Seated dollar. A most pleasing example that exhibits typical coin gray coloring with peripheral sky blue shades during bright light inspection. Strike is complete with bold devices. Steely fields are quite attractive since unabraded. Rim integrity is all there too. This New Jersey Collection offering is most satisfying though accurately graded with its EF Details certification. There are faint hairlines under the toning that become evident with 10x loupe inspection. I've seen much worse in straight graded TPG holders. I'm playing it straight on this offering with a Market Acceptable quality rating and a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. This piece grades full EF45 based on wear and brings excellent eye appeal. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2021) holder.
Seated $1 1871 1871
Gem $15400 Exceptional Eye Appeal, Partially Mirrored Fields, Pristine Surfaces, Osprey Collection. The Osprey Collection is back with a gem 1871 Motto Liberty Seated dollar offering that should garner considerable attention. Fields are partial mirrored with the associated reflective luster that explodes during bright light assessment. Surfaces are entirely pristine and unabraded which further enhanced viewing. The in-hand green and rose shades are transparent to the underlying luster. Please don't be fooled by the GFR images, this piece is far from a dark patina with full access to the mirrors with angled light. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2022) holder with CAC approval. CAC has approved 17 at grade with only five better at huge pricing premium to the offer example.

Trade $1 1873 1873
Choice HOLD
First Year Trade Dollar Issue, Elusive in High Grade, Natural Mint Bloom. The first year 1873 Trade dollar strikes were immediately destined for commerce with China and not circulation in the States. The Philadelphia mint did not release circulation strikes to local collectors, rather wishing to sell proof versions. Few Mint State examples were saved resulting in the date being elusive and sought after by present day collectors. GFRC is pleased to be offering a near gem example with natural mint bloom that exhibits textured frosty luster under a light source. Obverse toning is intermixed copper-rose gray while the reverse is graced with gold and aquamarine shades. Strike is typical of the first year issue. A prize for those pursuing first year issues. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
Trade $1 1874S 1874-S
Choice HOLD
New May 2! Attractive Peripheral Toning, Steely Luster, Choice at Grade. Price Reduction - Please don't let the ANACS gold label holder impact potential consideration for this attractively toned 1874 San Francisco struck Trade dollar. 1874 brought large commercial demand for Trade dollars to be used for the China trade. Most of the San Francisco output was shipped to the Orient. Enough Mint State examples were saved and are available for present day collectors. This well preserved example offers attractive ring toning on both sides. A dense aquamarine patina surrounds untoned centers. Luster is of a steely texture and active during bright light inspection. Fields abrasions are consistent with the assigned grade. This offering is a special color coin with the associated premium.

An extremely rare 1876 Type II/II design hub pairing that is without auctions records. In the new Whitman Mega Red Book, Bowers lists the die pairing without pricing estimates and indicates extremely rare in the footnotes.

A light gray patina covers both sides. Under a light source, steely fields comes to life with light gold coloring on the obverse. Fields have a few scattered micro ticks but well within the range of what can be expected at the VF grade level. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with "Obv 2 Rev 2" specified on the label. A major die variety offering from the Cumberland County Collection. Please that the GFRC images illustrate light rose coloring on the lower obverse and reverse. This coloring is an artifact of the photography process and not on the coin. This piece is even light gray.
Trade $1 1876CC 1876-CC
Chop Mark
Choice $1100 New May 21! Type I/II, Chop Marked, Choice Original, Newtown Collection. 1876 Carson City trade dollar production was limited to 509,000 by April of that year and then ceased. As a result, this date in scarce in circulated grades. The Type I/II design hubs are the prevalent dies employed for that year. Chop marked are quite scarce and highly collectible in today's market. This Newtown Collection offerings features steely surfaces overlaid with a rose-gray patina that is often encountered for the issue. A single obverse chop mark is noted at the knees. The left facing eagle wing exhibits enhanced wear due to the metal push from the chop mark. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
Trade $1 1876S 1876-S
Gem $5900 Remarkable Preservation, Glowing Frosted Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Wicked Good Eye Appeal. One must see this amazing 1876-S Trade dollar to appreciate its remarkable preservation state as GFRC images are woefully inadequate. Yes, the Osprey Collection is back with another gem offering. This 1876 San Francisco Trade dollar was likely struck from Nevada mined silver. Most of the five million plus struck found their way to the Orient with few gem survivors. Let's start the description by pointing out that a micro mint frost is uniformly present across devices and fields. This metalized "skin" reflects a frosted sheen and swirling cartwheels. Obverse toning is a pretty light orange surrounded by transparent olive. Faint gold is seen on the reverse. A few micro ticks of no consequence located in the fields. Bottomline? This is a marvelous offering for a highly advanced collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2021) holder with CAC approval.
Trade $1 1877 1877
Gem $3375 Gem Original, Swirling Cartwheel Luster, Copper-Blue Patina, Frosty Surfaces, Typical Strike, Gorgeous Eye Appeal, Osprey Collection. GFRC is incredibly proud to be offering this gorgeous 1877 Philadelphia struck Trade dollar. Upon initial inspection, the vibrant cartwheel luster and copper gold coloring jumps out and grabs your attention. Let start with a review of the obverse. Copper-rose toning covers most of the obverse center with a transition to sky blue at the star and date punch. Reverse coloring tilts more towards copper-gold with embedded aquamarine. Sky blue and orange-gold intermix at the peripheries. These colors are transparent to the underlying frosty luster. Fields have a few scattered micro ticks of no consequence. Finally, strike is typical with some weakness at the upper obverse stars. Overall, this 1877 would best fit into a collection of superior eye appealing toners. Accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A splendid eye appealing offering from the Osprey Collection.
Trade $1 1877 1877
Original $450 Steely Luster, Light Copper-Gold Toning, Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded. By 1877, the Act of July 22, 1876 had demonetized the trade dollar resulting in this denomination circulating within the United States at a discount from face value. All active mints continued to strike Trade dollars during 1877 and 1878 before converting to Morgan dollars. This 1877 Philadelphia strike has light wear but still retains its steely luster. Overall coloring is light copper gold with embedded olive hues. Fields are sparsely abraded from time in circulation. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.5 (2012-2013) holder.
Trade $1 1877S 1877-S
Gem $12000 Gem Original, Branch Mint Collection. A light gold skin evenly covers the obverse while the reverse reveals original silver color. The 1877-S is a high mintage issue, but the quality here is anything but common. A quick flip in hand reveals substantial cartwheel and the flash is generous. Star centers are sharp and the eagle feathers are completely delineated. A few ticks are scattered on both sides, with no marks of note. Despite the abundant mintage this piece is close to the condition census. CAC reports only eight examples in MS66 and above, while PCGS notes eight pieces at MS65+ and 10 in higher grades. This is clearly a high-end representative of the type, and, while not inexpensive, collectors should keep in mind that there are few bargains in numismatics and that quality usually requires a healthy investment. With MS66 CAC pieces priced at $20,000, this near-MS66 quality piece should draw a strong price. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval.
Trade $1 1877S 1877-S
New April 20! Ideal Type, Gem Originality, Steely Reflectance, Pristine Surfaces. A superb 1877-S Trade dollar that would be an important acquisition for an advanced type set. Yes, the 1877-S date is common with no rarity pricing premium. Instead, this specimen offers gem originality with steely reflectance and pristine fields. Angled lighting inspection melts the darker in-hand shades into lighter rose shades on the obverse while rose-gold surrounds center aquamarine on the reverse. Viewing is equally enjoyable with 10x as the surfaces are unabraded. A superior example with luster that GFRC images are unable to capture so your imagination is necessary. A JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation shout out is warranted. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 holder with CAC approval.
Trade $1 1877S 1877-S
Choice $535 Gun Metal Gray-Blue Patina, Partially Mirrored Fields, Reflective Luster, Attractive . A thoroughly pleasing 1877 San Francisco struck Trade dollar with uniform gun metal gray-blue patina as a starting point. Angled lighting exposes partially mirrored fields that radiate sharp reflective luster. Eye appeal is above average as compared to thickly crusty specimens that are often CAC approved. Worthy of special consideration. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
Trade $1 1878S 1878-S
Choice $1200 Choice Original, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Dusty Gray-Gold, Eye Appeal at Grade, Chicago ANA New Purchase. 1878 brought the last year of Trade dollar production at the San Francisco mint. By April 1878 all Trade dollars had been struck and production shifted to the Morgan dollar as dictated by the Bland-Allison Act. There is speculation that quantities of the 1878-S dated Trade dollars were melted but no official records have been located. This mint state survivor offers perfectly natural surfaces and above average eye appeal. If searching for a mint state Trade dollar on a budget, then this example provide compelling value. Fields are lightly mirrored on both sides as struck from freshly polished dies. A dusty gray-gold film covers the surfaces and is mostly transparent to the underlying reflective luster. Fields are also unabraded. A superior example at the certified MS62 grade level and sure to please selective collectors. Housed in new NGC large font holder.
