Gem $900 Eye Candy, Glowing Aquamarine-Rose-Gold Luster, Super Original, Accurately Graded, Santa Fe Collection. A very special 1838 Large Stars half dime that would be ideal for a mint state early type collection. GFRC accurately capture the colors as seen in hand. Bright light viewing leads to a glowing luster including a golden obverse ring at the stars and uniform rose-gold on the reverse. Strike is absolutely hammered with round stars and deeply impressed hair curls. Eye appeal is that of a higher grade but technically, this half dime is accurately graded due to two parallel micro lines on the obverse to the left of the date. These lines can be seen in the worst GFRC images (lines are parallel to the light source and enhanced) but not distracting when viewing in hand or with a loupe. Fresh graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A superb offering from the Santa Fe Collection.

Gem $875 Round Fat O, Gem Original, New Jersey Collection. This is a special offering that belongs in an advanced collection. Purchased by the consignor in a 2003 Bowers and Merena sale and off the market since that time. Surfaces are pristine with just a touch of rub on the leg and lower wreath. Frosty golden luster is the best way to describe the in hand and bright light appearance throughout obverse and reverse. How about rarity? CoinFacts indicates a population of (9) but where are these pieces? The last sales record goes back to January 2006 or earlier. A dipped PCGS AU55 did sell during 2014 otherwise considerable patience is required for locating a high quality example. Patience is rewarded with the appearance of this splendid example to the market. Housed in early 2000 generation NGC holder and ready to be placed in a serious Seated half dime collection.

Gem $1275 New August 9! Superb Gem, Hammered Strike, Old Album Bullseye Toning, Mirrored Fields, Dallas Collection. Really an amazing offering for the type coin collector who desires only the best. One immediately notices the mirrored 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. Dies are heavily clashed as easily seen in the GFRC images while the strike is absolutely hammered. Centers are essentially untoned with 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. Again the strike is fully hammered with the reverse anomalies inside the denomination letters being heavy clash marks. Housed in a 2013 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. An amazing offering to consider.

Gem $2850 Gem Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Rare Date, Heavy Die Clashing, Osprey Collection. Mintage for the 1867 date is a tiny 8,000 piece with this MS65+ graded example in the condition census given CAC approval. Regardless of its small size, this Philadelphia struck half dime makes a statement when viewed. Frosty cartwheel luster is immediately evident while bright light viewing exposes lightly mirrored fields. Obverse is heavily clashed while a prominent die crack is seen from STATE(S) to Liberty's clasp. Strike is nearly completed with only a touch of weakness at the gown line and lower maple leaf on the reverse. This piece is so enjoyable to study under 10x loupe as there are numerous obverse die spaghetti lines throughout Liberty's body and gown. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. CAC approval is fully warranted given the overall quality and eye appeal. Another top quality offering from the Osprey Collection and worthy of an advanced mint set project.
Seated 5C 1871 Seated 1871
MS65 PCGS
33431514

Gem $645 Filled Obverse Die, Gem Frosty Oriignal, Light Gold Patina, Colorado Collection. A gorgeous 1871 Philadelphia Liberty Seated half dime with considerable character from the minting process. Luster and surfaces are consistent with gem designation. Add in a filled obverse die and heavy die clashing and one has a unique strike that would be a great conservative piece. The upper left arm and portions of Liberty's face remained unfilled during the minting process as is seen on Seated dimes. A grease filled die is always a plausible explanation. A heavy clash mark protrudes from the gown line into Liberty's neck. The reverse has heavy die clash lines and partial H(AL)F, again from a filled die event. Luster is quite frosty while faint gold toning streaks are seen on the obverse under a 10x loupe. There are no blemishes to discuss. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and a top quality offering from the Colorado Collection.

Gem $500 Gem Original, Bold Luster, Accurate Grading, Central California Collection. This lovely half dime offers two completely different personalities and is a joy to view. Let's start with in hand viewing as shown by my images..Toning is a base gray color that is overlaid with browns and deep blues that are well captured in the images. Bright light viewing exposes a completely different facet with bold cartwheel luster that turns the obverse into light rose and sky blue. The reverse is similar under bright light as the thicker in hand patina just melts away to expose faint rose and blues. The CAC approval is obviously justified on this lovely half dime as the piece is so original. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Gem $2350 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. This is an important GFRC offering housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. From the Winestevens Collection of fine numismatic properties.

Steely luster and entirely blemish free surfaces are noted on this CAC approved example. Housed in early blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and PNG hologram label.

Gem $35000 Transitional Large O Closed Bud Reverse, Finest Extant, Gem Original, Greer Guidebook Plate Coin, Gerry Fortin Top 100 Varieties Collection. Ahwash 1, Greer 102, Transitional Large O Closed Bud Reverse. Struck in early 1841 at the New Orleans mint with a left over Closed Bud reverse die from 1840 due to lack of die shipment of the new Open Bud reverse design. Greer indicates that "transitional Large and Small O dimes were struck from leftover 1840-O reverse dies most likely before the arrival of the first reverse dies of 1841 Open Bud which were delivered on Apri 7, 1841. Mint records for 1841 show 160,000 dimes were delivered from New Orleans prior to April of that year. I believe that these were deliveries included the Closed Bud 1841-O dimes, as well as many dated 1840-O. The extreme rarity of both closed bud varieties indicates a very small mintage." Collectors have been attempting for years to cherrypick examples due to substantial premiums in all grades. I consider both the Large and Small O Transitional Closed Bud dimes to be key entries in the Top 100 Liberty Seated Dime Variety set. Large O Closed Bud dimes can be located in lower circulated grades between AG and VF. Most will be found with problems due to lengthy time in circulation. Obtaining problem free and original examples in EF or better will require a long term collecting horizon as few are known. Once obtained, these specimens will typical reside in an advanced seated coinage collection for multiple years. At the certified AU grade level only two examples were known to the hobby; PCGS AU58 (Jack Marston Collection) and PCGS AU55 (Gerry Fortin Collection). Upon Jack Marston's untimely death, the PCGS AU58 example was placed at Heritage auction and sold. This piece can be easily identified by a mark on the lower right reverse wreath. The Fortin AU55 example is easily recognized by the lovely bullseye toning pattern on obverse and reverse. I've taken the liberty to call out the Fortin example as the finest known since crack out dealers have messed with the Jack Marston piece and added toning towards securing a PCGS MS62 certified grade. The Gerry Fortin example is completely natural and received Gold CAC approval during 2014. I would much rather own this AU55 example with Gold CAC rather than the AU58/MS62 example that no longer looks fully natural. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. The PCGS label reads, "Transitional Rev Large O, FS-902". A very special offering for the advanced collector who desires the finest numismatic properties and a piece of numismatic history given the Greer Guidebook plate coin pedigree.

F-111
Gem $725 Double Die Obverse, Gem Original, Hammered Strike, Conservative Grading. . Let’s start the description for this gem 1856 Small Date dime with a strong JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Why? Most collectors don't understand that the 1856 date, though common, is notorious for weak and uneven strikes. Fully struck mint state examples that are not blast white or creamy white are rare! Enter into the equation this gem example that is housed in early PCGS old green holder. The strike is absolutely hammered throughout obverse and reverse without any signs of weakness. Every star, every vein in each wreath leaf and Liberty's head are deeply impressed and crisp. It is such a joy to inspect this piece with a 10x loupe. Surfaces are strictly original with golden-rose patina. The fields do have a few scattered ticks but far from distracting. This is also the F-111 double die obverse variety with bold diagnostics throughout the shield, scroll and lower gown lines. The asking price is firm at $725 and if no takers, this one will go into my personal collection to be enjoyed for a number of years........

F-114
Gem $2650 Gem Proof Like, Stack's Lemus Sale 2005.. This is the first 1857 F-114 offered by GFRC and what an incredible example. The F-114 variety features badly rusted obverse and reverse dies. Areas of die rust are seen on Liberty's right arm under the pole/cap and throughout the reverse denomination letter and legend. To minimize the rust defects, Mint workers heavily polished the dies resulting in proof like surfaces. Couple the proof like fields with multi color patina and bold strike and the result is huge eye appeal. This piece is sitting in front of a window so light reflects at an angle across the surface. On the obverse, I see an aquamarine/teal center that transitions to rose/gold surrounding the stars and some reds at the date. Angling the obverse under bright light results in more colors that are difficult to describe. Reverse has a rose center at the denomination that converts to sea blue around the legend. Provenance dates back to the Stack's NYC Lemus sale. I remember seeing this dime at the preview and it sold raw during auction. Stack's was the first to diagnose the rusted die variety per observation on this discovery piece. There is only one issue holding this dime back and that is trying to photograph the proof like surfaces and colors straight on. The images in no way do this coin justice and you will have to trust me on the gem eye appeal. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and serial number 08175509.

New August 14! Superb Gem, Undergraded, Dual Sided Bullseye Toning, Fully Struck, Florida Collection. If outside of the current PCGS MS63 holder, I would immediately grade this superb 1857-O dime at the MS64 level. Yes, the luster may not be strong enough for an MS65 designation but all other parameters make this dime a complete stand out as an MS64 Both obverse and reverse offer rainbow bullseye toning with satiny textures. GFRC images accurately capture the coloring and distinct toning rings. Strike is hammered on the obverse with full head and hair curls and nicely rounded stars. The reverse has some weakness at the upper wreath leaves and on the ribbon bows as is so common for this variety. Surfaces are entirely blemish free also. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval validates the originality and eye appeal. I'm not sure why this 1857-O dime did not receive a gold bean as undergraded at the MS63 level. An important offering from the Florida Collection that will be cherished for years once part of an advanced collection. If I were still collecting, this one would be heading to the Gerry Fortin Collection.

Gem $2875 New August 19! Gem Original, Frosty Devices, Light Rose Toned Mirrors, Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded, Florida Collection. Every Liberty Seated dime collector recognizes how difficult the 1863 through 1867 Philadelphia strikes are to locate. Mint state examples will occasionally arrive to the market but most are safely "put away" in strong collector hands. Mintage for the 1864 date is 11,000. This lovely example, from the Florida Collection, has been assigned a Gem quality rating due to substantial eye appeal and no distracting blemishes. The MS63 grade is technically correct as there are several faint hairlines in the left obverse field visible when inspecting under bright light with a 10x loupe. Having said that, the overall appearance and eye appeal is that of a higher grade. Devices are frosty original while the fields are lightly mirrored. This is a no question business strike as many will be seen with proof like fields. Rose-gold toning is seen throughout the obverse and reverse. A quality example that is housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. Worthy of an advanced mint state collection!

This example is a lovely gem with frosty devices and a hammered strike with sharp wire rims on both obverse and reverse. All device details including hair curls and upper wheat grains a fully visible. The F-106 variety can be diagnosed by a radial die crack through the 7 and 0 digits then up through Liberty's foot and into the legend. Some F-106 specimens come with proof like appearance and this example clearly has the strike characteristics of a proof. Housed in new NGC holder.

This outstanding F-120 example falls in the severely eroded reverse die category. Extensive die wear and die cracks are evident throughout the lower wreath. Most important are the frosty surfaces that produce considerable cartwheel luster consistent with the assigned MS64 grade.

Fields are fully mirrored with natural "watery" texture and completely blemish free. Mintage amounts to 1,100 piece coupled with a high survival rate. Checking CoinFacts, the graded population peaks at the PF63/PF64 level due to long ago handling issues and at the PF66 level, few are available with Ultra Cameo designation and appearance. A CoinFacts check indicates the following (1) DCAMPF64, (1) DCAMPF65, (1) DCAMPF66 and (1) DCAMPF67 for PCGS graded examples. This NGC Ultra Cameo last sold in during July 2003 at Heritage auction and brought ~ $2000 while a more recent NGC Ultra Cameo sale (June 2010) brought $2990. Pricing these high end grade rarities is challenging but the present asking price does appear to be reasonable. Housed in old NGC holder with traditional ring insert; serial number 1727340-011.

Gem $785 Gem Original, Thick Multi Color Toning, New Die Pairing (F-122), Florida Collection. . When first attributing this gem 1883 dime, it seemed that the date was position far right. Making a Denticle Ruler measurement resulted in DR 1R and a new die pairing for the web-book. This is a no question gem dime with thick multi color toning coupled with strong luster that radiates copper and light gray, gold and aquamarine shades. This is how a 130 year old piece of silver should look when natural and untouched. Strike is nearly full with only the upper wheat grains being a tad soft. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Serial number 21167100.

Gem $750 Gem Original, Lustrous Pastel Toning, Fully Struck, Former Birmingham Collection.. This is the second time that GFRC has the pleasure to offer this lovely 1886 Seated dime. Initially sold out of the Birmingham Collection and now upgrade and back on the market. Pastel toning is the highlight with intermixed aquamarine, gold and rose coloring on the obverse and mottled gray, ebony and rose on the reverse. Bright light viewing exposes the luster and accentuates the colors. The overall strike is crisp with no signs of weakness. Same for blemishes as none were seen. If this dime has just a bit more flashy luster, then it would be a candidate for MS66 designation. In the current PCGS holder, it is accurately graded. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert; serial number 3756017.

Strike is better than average for later date With Legend dimes but there is weakness in the upper left wreath as is so common. I really like this dime as the creamy luster is stunning.

Gem $825 Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Gem Original, Transparent Copper/Blue Patina, Conservative Grading, Colorado Collection. Yes, 1890 Philadelphia strikes are considered to be a common date in the Liberty Seated dime series. When locating gem mint state examples, I tend to shy away from blast while pieces and attempt to add examples with superior toning. This offering from the Colorado Collection definitely meets my standards. Cartwheel luster is bold and brash while the patina is a transparent copper blue. Strike is nearly full on obverse with a slight weakness at the top of Liberty's head along with incomplete wheat grains at the upper left wreath. Regardless, this piece is a flat out gem that will please even the most selective collector. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Conservative grading along with a Green CAC bean to validate the eye appeal. I love this piece and believe you will also.

Gem $1700 Crusty Gem Original, Old Green Holder, Gerry Fortin Collection.. One does not often see "crusty original" dimes graded MS65 but here is an example to consider. The strike is so well executed with bold devices throughout obverse and reverse. We surmise that many 1891 New Orleans dimes were struck on presses with high striking forces (for Morgans). In hand, the toning is dark but under bright light, this piece acquires a fiery red glow that is so attractive. Purchased during April 2007 from Warren Mills at Rare Coins of New Hampshire. Advanced collectors well know the quality coins sold by RCNH. Finally, this is also the Seated Dime web-book plate coin for the F-113 Repunched Date variety.

Gem $550 New August 19! Gem Original, Rusted Obverse Die, Undergraded, Incredible Eye Appeal, Tenafly Collection.. Let's start this description by making a bold recommendation, JUST BUY IT NOW! This incredible WB-19 R4 example belongs in the most selective Seated half collection. PCGS was too strict grading this piece as I believe it is a full AU55. The AU53 results from weak obverse devices due to being struck by a rusted and eroded die. The die erosion is most evident along the raised scroll edges. There is little wear but rather a weak strike. Eye appeal is superior with glowing surfaces covered by gun metal blue gray patina. Under a bright light, the obverse shifts to a ring of light gold surrounding the stars and a sky blue center. The reverse coloring is also similar but not as pronounced as the obverse. Reverse strike is well executed and there are no blemishes to discuss. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A substantial quality offering from the Tenafly Collection that deserves special consideration regardless of the asking price.

Gem $2200 New July 21! 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.

This is a FUN show purchased that walked up to the table and how could I say no? GFRC images accurately capture the in hand appearance while viewing under bright light exposes blooming luster and the rainbow toning. Under bright light, the obverse center offers rose/gold hues that transition into blue, gold and aquamarine arcs at the rim. The reverse is quite similar.

An incredible Barber half dollar gem with fiery red patina on the reverse resulting in the reverse being mounted on the front of the PCGS holder. Forget the PCGS TruView images as they are completely inadequate in capturing the deep colors and vivid proof surfaces. GFRC images are much more accurate capturing the bloody red obverse center that is surrounding with a sky blue ring at the rim. Reverse toning adds violet and purple to the reds seen on the obverse. In hand viewing under a strong bright light will produce the maximum enjoyment. Actually, this is a show and tell piece for the collectors who loves truly cool coins. Housed in transitional 2012/2013 PCGS Security holder with blue label and edge view insert. Please give this Barber half some consideration as I've seen none equivalent to this piece in my collecting career.

Gem $2800 Gem Original, Watery Mirrors, Light Creamy White Patina, Accurately Graded, Winesteven Collection.

Brilliant cartwheel luster is stunning and immediately captures the viewer's attention. Toning is faint gold on the obverse and light gray-gold on the reverse. Strike is complete with nice rounded stars and deeply impressed eagle feathers. The AU58 assigned grade is accurate as there is faint rub on the Liberty's upper shoulder and the upper eagle wing tips. However, the eye appeal is consistent with many MS62 graded examples given there are no blemishes to discuss. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval is definitely warranted. A wonderful gem from the Wisconsin Collection that deserves special attention. In hand viewing at a coin show is advised.

This offering is an outright gem from the LaSalle Collection. Photographing large denomination proof strikes is not a GFRC strength. Therefore images provide a basic idea of the coloring and appearance but in hand viewing is absolutely warranted to appreciate the originality and proof cameo surfaces.

Toning is multicolor rainbow with gold, rose and blues on the obverse and aquamarine and gold on the reverse. Many 1880 San Francisco examples come lightly PL as is the case with this example. Under bright light, the PL surfaces accentuate the colorful toning and adds a new dimension of enjoyment. As one would expect from an MS65 graded piece, the fields and main devices are blemish free.

Gem $925 Tiny Mintage, Choice Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Super Eye Appeal, Conservative Grading . What is there not to like about this 1886 gold dollar? Let's start with a tiny mintage of 5,000 pieces. Then there is conservative grading and CAC approval at the MS63 grade level. How about frosty cartwheel luster that just radiates off the obverse and reverse surfaces?

Gem $1875 Gem Original, Old Orange Gold Patina, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Undergraded, Wisconsin Collection. There is no way in the world this lovely 1906 San Francisco strike is an MS62 in today's market. Very much undergraded and a candidate for Gold CAC bean. Rich orange-gold surfaces are essentially blemish free and offer satiny cartwheel luster under a light source. Fully struck throughout obverse and reverse. Blemish wise, there are two tiny obverse bagmarks in the field between Star 3 and Liberty while the reverse has one mark in the lower shield that is worth noting. A gem offering at the MS62 grade level and housed in PCGS old green holder. Clearly an MS63 piece and priced accordingly. An important offering from the Wisconsin Collection for those that like their gold with deep orange patina.

Gem $3750 New August 17! No Motto, Gem Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. First year of design issue with multiple varieties to consider. 1907 brought the Wired Edge and Rolled Edge variants with both being prohibitively expensive. 1907 also saw the minting of No Motto examples. These are the logical selection for first year of design types sets. Mintage for the date is 239,406. GFRC is so pleased to feature another outstanding selection by the Osprey Collection. This 1907 No Motto $10 eagles is graded MS64+ with vibrant satiny cartwheel luster.

Gem Original, Glowing Satiny Luster, Conservative Grading, Osprey Collection. A gem for the assigned MS64+ grade with CAC approval validating how close this specimen is to full MS65 grade. Actually, I believe this piece is a full MS65. 1914 Denver strikes are the third rarest issue of the Indian quarter eagle series with 1914 and 1911-D being rarer. The Mint State population drops off quickly after MS-63 with substantial price jumps to $16K at the MS65 grade level. This probably explains why PCGS was so cautious in assigning full MS65 grade level and turning this piece into a five figure numismatic item. So here we are with assigned MS64+ grade and CAC approval. If one understands statistics and gaussian distributions, then there is a reasonable probability that this piece is equivalent to a portion of those presently graded MS65 and selling for more than double the GFRC asking price. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Another superb offering from the Osprey Collection.
