This lovely 1875 double dime is strictly original example with light to medium gray coloing. There are no blemishes to mention as a well preserved specimen. This piece was original conservatively graded as F15 while PCGS assigned a VF20 opinion. This should substantiate the care taken in grading raw coins for GFRC customers.

Market Acceptable $350 New March 5! Attractive Light Gold Patina, Flashy Luster, Old Clean and Retoned, Accurately Graded, Wooster Collection. BF-2 die variety. At first glance, one sees an EF45/AU example due to some residual luster and light gold toning. Closer inspection with 10x loupe suggestes the ANACS grading is accurate and the surfaces have been lightly cleaned in the past. Granted there is metal flow/frosty surrounding the stars that was undisturbed. A Market Acceptable quality rating has been assume given the strong eye appeal. Housed in old ANACS White Holder. An offering from the Wooster Collection.

Choice $1650 New April 21! Important Carson City Strike, Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Just a Hint of Rub, Malvern Collection. Limited mintage of 133,290 and so popular with Carson City collectors as a type coin. Surfaces are strictly original with a trace of rub. Satiny luster with a hint of golden patina provides for considerable eye appeal. Obverse strike is uniform while the reverse sees weakness at the upper left wing. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS old green holder. A quality offering from the Malvern Collection.

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 $1300 New March 17! Choice Original, Old Time Gun Metal Gray/Blue Patina, Accurately Graded, Saco River Collection.. A super 1875 Carson City BF-2 example with natural gun metal gray-blue toning and choice surfaces. Strictly originality is not an issue here once placing a 10x loupe on the surfaces and viewing old time thick natural patina. Well stuck throughout obverse and reverse with every reverse eagle feather being crisply defined. Accurately graded and worthy of an advanced type set collection as the 1875-CC is a more challenging design representative than omnipresent 1875 San Francisco strikes. Housed in newer NGC holder. A top quality offering from the Saco River Collection that should not last long.
Seated 20C 1875S 1875-S
EF45 raw
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.
Seated 20c 1875S 1875-S
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.

Choice HOLD
New April 21! Underrated Date, Malvern Collection. Tiny mintage of 14,5640 and so underrated at current pricing levels. My favorite offering from the new Malvern consignor. Frosty cartwheel luster is immediately evident when viewing. Faint mottled gray-gold patina is found on the obverse and reverse. Perfectly original with no blemishes. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. A top quality offering, especially date rarity), fom the Malvern Collection. Serious type collectors should consider the 1876 Philly date given the low mintage and affordability factor as compared to 1875 Carson City counterpart.
