Seated 20C 1875 1875
VF30 NGC

Original $450 Original, Conservative Grading. Considerable remaining details for the VF30 assigned grade on this nice orginal piece. Obverse is toned an even light to medium gray with no blemishes. Reverse has old album toning with rainbow coloring; green/blues in the eagle that migrate to rose then deep red and blue at the upper rim. One can easily find 1875-S and 1875-CC examples at most coin shows but try to locate the underrated 1875 and 1876 dates. Mintage is only 36,910.

Choice $1650 Choice Original, Medium Gray, Accurately Graded, Central California Collection. Thick gray patina covers both the obverse and reverse on this strictly original Carson City double dime. In hand and bright light viewing is quite similar due to the patina being thick and masking the remaining luster. Strike is typical for this issue as Brunner and Frost point out;This date generally comes poorly struck, with weakness commonly found on Liberty’s head, the shield and LIBERTY. On the reverse, weakness is often found on the eagle’s head, central breast feathers, and the top of the wings on the reverse. In particular for this example, there is weakness at the bottom of LIBERTY, on the eagles head and definitely on the upper left wing. Housed in older PCGS blue label holder. CAC approval is warranted due to the originality.

Choice $260 Choice Original, Medium Gray, Scarcer Variety, Seal Beach Collection. A strictly original example of the scarcer BF-6 variety. Surfaces are covered with light to medium gray patina that is uniform across obverse and reverse. This piece also performs well under bright light. The reverse has two fully toned over micro lines that are mentioned for completeness but do not detract from the overall eye appeal. I believe a "choice" designation still is valid. Housed in new 2015 PCGS holder.

Original $295 Original, Light Gray. A popular variety listed in Cherrypickers due to a repunched mintmink that has $ sign appearance. Obverse also has a misplaced 5 digit in the denticles. Surfaces are an even light gray with no blemishes. LIBERTY on scroll is well defined with the weakness below E being strike related.
