California Fractional
Gold 25C 1859 1859
BG-705
MS64 NGC
4712009008
Choice $2250 Baltimore Show Price Reduction! BG-705, Condition Census Grade, Bold Reflective Luster, Abrasion Free, Conservatively Graded, Tiny PCGS Population for Variety. Stocking California Fractional gold is an important event due to early gold rush significance and private issue. The booming gold rush years left local merchants with a lack of small denomination coinage. The San Francisco mint did not ramp $1 coin production until 1854 and only with a meager 14,600 mintage to support local commerce. As a result, local jewelry shop owners began striking and issuing private gold in small denominations. Most were struck with anvil and hammer leading to uneven strikes. This 1859 BG-705 offering is exceptional given the example is a top pop grade and so well preserved. PCGS has only graded fourteen (14) total examples with one piece at the MS64 level. Both sides offer bold reflective luster from mirrored fields. Obverse devices are crudely engraved with most stars being blobs. The obverse die is heavily clashed with a reverse die from another 25c fractional design. Reverse design is also poorly executed with crude wreath elements and weak denomination and date. Edge denticles are well raised and sharp. Conservatively graded and housed in new large font NGC holder. From a Massachusetts consignor.

MS61 NGC
3883990001
Choice $750 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.

35738613
Choice $5650 New April 4! CAC Condition Census, Rare in Mint State, Rich Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Accurately Grades, Osprey Collection. The 1852-O has the second lowest mintage of any Type 1 New Orleans mint gold dollar and is also the second rarest. Locating choice examples in higher uncirculated grades is very difficult. The CAC population report validates this fact with only three approved at MS63 level and three finer. Rich frosty luster is the highlight of this choice original offering. Surfaces are essentially abrasion free with a few very faint wispy hairlines seen under bright light viewing and nothing else. Obverse die is heavily cracked with die cracks from 9:00 to Liberty's nose and another from star to the bonnet. Coloring is natural medium green-gold. Strike is typical with the reverse DO(LL)AR and 8 digit being a tad weak. Overall, a quality representative of this rare date in Mint State. Freshly graded and housed in Gen 6.0S Gold Shield PCGS holder with CAC approval. An exceptional advanced collector offering from the Osprey Collection.

The repunched variety is known as the "Double S" variety with the first S punched high and to the right, and then only partially affaced. These two reverses share the same obverse die, identified by its diagonal crack from the ear to the U in UNITED. This marvelous Double S mintmark offering from the Osprey Collection is pleasing with smooth orange-gold surfaces and tons of frosty luster. Surfaces are blemish free with just a hint of rub at the highest cheek point. Housed in new large font NGC holder with edge view insert.

David Akers comments that "most examples of this date are seen very weakly struck, both on the head of Liberty and on the eagle on the reverse." Surface coloring is a greenish-gold.

Gem $900 Gem Original, Old Time Conservative Grading. Mintage of 578,000 at the Denver mint and the last $2.5 Indians to be produced. Once again, let's consider the 1925-D issue's background as explained by David Akers. He states, "Almost always having very good to excellent mint lustre but the striking quality varies greatly; some are very unevenly struck while others are well struck. Dies seem to have been a problem with this issue, and many specimens were clearly struck from buckled or deteriorated dies. The mint mark is usually a little weak but well defined. There are some specimens, however, where the mintmark is so weak that it is nearly invisible. The color is typically a rose tinted gold but there are also coppery colored specimens as well as ones with green and yellow gold shades. The surfaces are frosty with little or no granularity." In light of these observation, this example was carefully examined with a 10x loupe. Surfaces are frosty with brilliant cartwheel luster. Strike is complete and uniform with some minor die bulging below the Indian's chin and behind E PLU(RI)BUS. Overall eye appeal is superior and warrants a gem quality rating. Housed in NGC fatty holder with CAC approval. An offering for collectors attempt a type set with preference for all TPG holders and CAC approval.

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.

It is obtainable in grades up to AU55 but becomes very rare in AU58 and is extremely rare in full Uncirculated condition. This offering is one of the two mint state examples graded by PCGS. Surfaces are absolutely choice with exceptional satiny luster. Obverse patina is natural rose and orange-gold while the reverse adds splashes of rich orange-gold leading increased eye appeal.

Original $41500 New May 1! New Orleans Double Eagle Rarity, Weak Date Dies, Residual Reflective Luster, Above Average Eye Appeal, Limited Abrasions, Fresh From Europe. The 1861-O double eagle is a historically significant issue with a limited mintage of 17,741 pieces. Q. David Bowers suggests that 1861-O double eagles were produced by three different governing entities; Union, State of Louisiana, and Confederate States of America . Bowers further suggests that 5,000 examples were coined in January under Union control, follow by another 9,750 examples under the administration of the State of Louisiana, and the final 2,991 struck after the New Orleans mint was annexed by the Confederacy. Noted United States gold expert, Doug Winter, explores the striking administration topic further and questions if a single die pair was used for all 1861-O strikes since three sets of dies were sent to the New Orleans mint during December 1860. This date will be found with weak and strong dates though the date positions are exactly the same. Further research with Joe Gaines brings the conclusion that survivors with strong date are most likely to have been struck by the Confederacy. This example was sourced from Europe during early 2019 in raw condition and freshly certified by PCGS. This date is reported to have extensive marks on obverse and reverse due to prolonged circulation and mishandling. Since originating from Europe, this Osprey Collection example was saved early on without opportunity for bruises or scratches. Field are mildly abraded but without any significant distractions. In particular, the cheek is smooth and leads to above average eye appeal. Under a light source, residual reflective luster is consistently active on both sides. Coloring is a medium greenish-gold.

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.

Gem $4850 New March 31! Outrageous Gem, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Orange-Gold Patina, Essentially Blemish Free, Conservatively Graded, Winesteven Collection. The Winesteven Collection consignor is back in a huge way with a newly divested duplicate from his spectacular United States gold type set. GFRC is thrilled to be offering this outrageous 1904 Liberty $20 double eagle that is conservatively graded at the MS65+ level. Yes, this piece could easily be offered at full MS66 level as so well balanced and attractive. Let's walk through the key parameters of luster, color, strike and abrasions for grasping the entire picture and why you should step up with a purchase. Satiny luster and vibrant cartwheels tease the eyes during bright light inspection. Old time orange-gold coloring is consistent with expectations for naturally preserved surfaces. Strike is hammered with high relief stars and deeply defined scrolls, tail and arrow feathers on the reverse. Finally, there are essentially no abrasions on this example. The only break in mint frost occurs at star 9 with a short contact mark. Otherwise, the fields are perfectly clean including Liberty's face. It is difficult to imagine that the Winesteven Collection consignor could locate a finer example but he did much to the joy of the GFRC community. Housed in blue label Gen 4.5 PCGS holder. Since less than 4% of MS65s and MS65+s for this date graded by PCGS and NGC merit CAC approval, those with a green been CAC sticker always sell for a significant spread over the 96% without CAC approval. Therefore the offer price is firm and reasonable given the overall balanced nature of this outrageous specimen.

Choice $3300 Better St. Gaudens Date, Choice Original, Rich Orange-Gold Patina, Frosty Cartwheels, Minimal Abrasions, Accurately Graded. Prior to the 1950s, the 1922-S was considered to be one of the premier rarities of the Saint-Gaudens series. However, a series of hoards were located in Europe and Central America that reduced that rarity status. Today, 1922 San Francisco strikes are seen as a better date with strong pricing premium over bullion content. This MS63 graded example is housed in PCGS Gen3.1 old green holder that was issued from 1993 to 1998. Eye appeal is pleasing with rich orange-gold patina that is expected for the issue. Frosty cartwheels are vibrant. Surfaces have minimal abrasions at the assigned grade level. Grading appears to be conservative when adding up luster, coloring and lack of abrasions. From an old time Sarasota area collection that has been off the market for several decades.
