MS61 NGC
3883990001
Choice $750 New May 10! Mirrored Fields, Eye Appeal, Choice Original, Better New Orleans Strike.. A popular Type 1 design strike given the opportunity to own a New Orleans mint issue at slightly above a comparable Philadelphia issue. Mintage is low at 290,000. Fields are mirrored and sharply reflective under a light source. This piece is properly graded at MS61, on a technical basis, due to some obverse hairlines but in hand eye appeal is that of a higher grade. This is why this 1851-O gold dollar was added to GFRC inventory. Housed in newer NGC holder with some plastic lines that appear on the GFRC image. Believe me, this is a nice example for the grade.

81426006
Choice $445 Choice Original, Orange Gold Patina, Soft Satiny Luster, Accurately Graded. The 1856 Upright 5 date punch is the scarcer of the two different logotype used that year.

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.

Large Date
AU50 PCGS
20254221
Original $1750 Large Date, Rare New Orleans Issue, Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. 1843-O Large Date quarter eagle strikes are the second rarest New Orleans quarter in terms of its overall rarity and in the top three for the series when considering higher graded.

The offered example has a lightly mirrored obverse and frosty reverse. Coloring is rose gold with stronger rose hues on the obverse. Marks are to a minimum with none to discuss.

MS64+
PCGS
81268503
Gem $4950 Gem Original, Radiate Satiny Luster, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. A gem for the assigned MS64+ grade. 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 double the GFRC asking price. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and another superb offering from the Osprey Collection.

Gem $5350 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.

276783008
Gem $11350 Gem Original Early Type, Reverse Adjustment Marks, Gorgeous Eye Appeal, Conservative Grading, Outback Collection. The first Capped Bust Right $5 half eagle example to be handled by GFRC and what a way to start! This last year issue of the Capped Bust Right design offers bold original luster above the assigned AU53 grade level. This luster dominates the eyes when viewing with any amount of external lighting. Surfaces are consistently toned an old time orange gold as is to be expected for an unmolested specimen. Grading is also conservative in terms of wear. The reverse wing tips are fully defined with little evidence of rub. Overall, I would be comfortable seeing this 1807 $5 piece in an AU55 holder. Mintage is a meager 32,488 thought the PCGS population report indicates a reasonable amounts of examples surviving in choice circulated condition. Strike appears to be an ongoing issue for this Turbin Head design with weakness in the center area. Housed in NGC Fatty holder with CAC approval. An important type coin offering from the Outback Collection.

AU55 PCGS
05934059
Choice $6600 Rare AU Grade Charlotte Half Eagle, Choice Original Surfaces, Rare Prooflike Fields, Accurately Graded, Vicksburg Collection. GFRC is so pleased to offer an 1855 Charlotte gold $5 half eagle in rare AU grade coupled with infrequently seen prooflike fields. Noted United States gold expert, Doug Winter, states the following in PCGS Price Guide concerning the rarity of the 1855 Charlotte date in AU or better, "This date becomes scarce in properly graded AU50 and quite rare in the higher AU grades, especially with natural color and original surfaces. In Uncirculated it remains an extremely rare coin. I am aware of just four or five, including a Gem..." Winter then goes on to discuss luster characteristic for Charlotte 1855 gold and states that nearly all will be seen with thick frosty luster and "A few are known with slightly reflective prooflike fields." Offered here is one of the few known with mirrored fields. Mintage is a low 39,788 pieces. PCGS populations report indicates twelve graded AU55 and seven at the AU58 level along with a last auction appearence taking place during 2010 for those graded AU55. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with no CAC attempt. A CAC is definitely warranted as I believe this piece will sticker due to the strict originality and mirrored fields. An outstanding Charlotte gold offering from the Vicksburg Collection.

MS61 raw
Original $435 Near Choice Eye Appeal, Old Time Orange Patina. Don't I enjoy adding this lovely 1880 half eagle to the GFRC price list. This piece offers a substantial amount of frosty cartwheel luster along old time orange patina. An MS61 net grade is assigned due to some wispy hairlines in the left obverse field that require a 10x glass and properly lighting angle to see. A perfect piece for a casual type set along with gold bullion appreciation potential.

Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder and ready for transfer into a type set or $5 half eagle date set.

4252195002
Choice $1975 Affordable Carson City Date, Old Time Copper Gold Patina, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection . Mintage of 208,000 and rendering this Carson City date as the most affordable from that era. I really like and recommend this gold half eagle due to the transparent copper gold patina. Placing this piece under a light source releases cartwheel luster and probably difficult to anticipate this surface condition when viewing the GFRC images. Blemishes are at a minimum with a few field ticks on the reverse but fully toned over. Housed in new large font NGC holder. The old time originality and accurately grading warrant CAC approval. Another quality selection from the Osprey Collection.

MS63 PCGS
82457954
Choice $1050 Near Gem for Grade, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded, Saco River Collection. A high end MS63 if you ask my humble opinion. Lots of vibrant and frosty cartwheel luster that is so pleasing to the eyes. Surfaces have a few ticks that technically place the proper grade at the MS63 level but the eye appeal is that of MS64. Strike is hammered with all devices deeply impressed. A superior example at the assigned MS63 grade level. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder without a CAC review. This piece should go to CAC as I believe there is a strong possibility to sticker. A quality gold offering from the Saco River Collection.

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.

There are a few blemishes on the reverse with the most noticeable being below the eagle tail feathers. Accurately graded at the AU53 grade level and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

The 1852 New Orleans double eagle sports a mintage of 190,000 and is an excellent choice for the Type I New Orleans slot in a United States gold type set. Most 1852-O double eagles are seen with a fair number of blemishes so collectors need to look for those with minimal marks heavily abraded. 1852 examples offer decent eye appeal but still not comparable to Philadelphia counterparts. This attractive Osprey example has been freshly graded and originated from Europe as many Osprey gold coins are. Accurately graded with surfaces that are free of any distracting blemishes. Toning is a consistent yellow gold while strike is complete. Please remember that nice New Orleans double eagles should continue to be in demand for years to come as such a popular and challenging mint to collect. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

The 1853 date is rare in Mint State grades and undervalued as PCGS has only graded (3) in MS63 and none higher. This AU58 example with CAC approval is so choice and pleasing. In hand inspection under a bright light will reveal the flashy luster and tickle the eyes. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder along with CAC approval.

AU53 PCGS
82415329
Choice $6300 Difficult Carson City Date, Original, Conservative Grading, Osprey Collection.. Always in demand as a Carson City type coin, the 1889 date sport a modest mintage of 30,945. Its rarity is consistent with the 1876-CC and 1890-CC dates according to information available at CoinFacts. This new offering from the Osprey Collection was recently sourced from Europe and freshly graded. Please pay careful attention to the strike and residual luster. Strike is hammered with deeply impressed hair curls and nearly all stars having connected centrils. The reverse is fully struck with nearly all stars surrounding IN GOD WE TRUST having connected centrils also. Fields are surprisingly mark free and reflective for the AU53 assigned grade. Frankly, I believe this piece is undergraded at the AU53 level. Housed in a 2015 style PCGS holder. A special quality offering from the Osprey Collection that deserves consideration.

Gold G$20 1902 1902
MS62 PCGS
81982954
Choice $5500 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.
