Light Gray, Old Cleaning, Burchs Creek Collection.. Definitely a challenging date in type coin set or Liberty Seated date and mintmark set. Mintage is only 100,000 pieces with TPG certified examples trading at $900+. The Burchs Creek collection example has an old cleaning and would not certify but is still a coin worth owning as part of a Seated half date and mintmark set. The surfaces have nicely recovered with a uniform light gray patina. Value priced.

Choice $650 Choice Original, Old Leather Colored Patina, Accurately Graded. . A wonderful 1839 With Drapery Seated half if you ask my opinion as a collector! Surfaces are no question original and covered with gray and brown leather hues throughout obverse and reverse. GFRC images are quite accurate with respect to in hand apperance. Adding a bright light results in the patina melting into faint gray surrounding the stars and the obverse center shifting to golden hues. The reverse is more uniform under bright light with even gray and a hint of rose in the lighter areas. This one is high on eye appeal if that old time original look is your collecting goal. Strike is nearly complete with only the lower left claws being a tad weak. Blemishes are to a minimum and all fully toned over. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with serial number 33051032.

New February 6! Important With Drapery Type, Choice Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded . A lovely 1839 With Drapery mint state half dollar with substantial eye appeal. One immediately notices the frosty cartwheel luster that is consistent on obverse and reverse. Light transparent rose-gold patina covers most of the obverse while the reverse is has a gold arc at the right rim. Strike is outstanding with deeply impressed hair curls, rounded stars and all lower ealge feathers and claws being crisply defined. This is the first Seated Philadelphia strike to be attributed to Bill Bugert's new Volume V Register with the attribution process being straightforward. Arcing radial lines in the lower drapery are a key diagnostic for the WB-7 die variety with a weak clash mark in the lower right shield. PCGS population report indicates only 11 graded MS63 and a detailed CoinFacts auction lot check revealed only four examples listed at auction between September 2006 and October 2016; none with CAC approval. This offering is definitely in the top end of the MS63 graded and worthy of the asking price else I would not have acquired for GFRC inventory. Housed in newer NGC holder with CAC approval. An outstanding type coin or entry into a date and mintmark collection.

New February 16! Choice Original, Stunning Gray, Orange-Gold Patina, Super Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded, Seal Beach Collection . Medium Date, Our Seal Beach consignor does it again with this stunning consignment. Superior eye appeal results when natural semi transparent patina is activated by glowing steely luster. During in hand viewing, the obverse is primarly gun metal gray with blue arc and some faint gold at the lower left base. Adding a light source melts the grays and exposes the underlying orange gold coloring. The reverse has similar color characteristic with more pronouced golden hues and less grays. Obverse strike is complete while the reverse has some minor weakness at the lower left leg and arrow feathers; so typical of Seated half dollar coinage. This lovely piece is entirely blemish free.

Choice $415 Repunched and Misplaced 8 Digits. Choice Original, Attractive Toning. A perfectly original Seated half dollar that is covered with mostly even light gray patina on the obverse and old album rose, blue and gold on the reverse. Blemishes are minimal with a few scattered field ticks consistent with the grade as this piece did circulate for a short time. This offering becomes more desirable when the variety is considered; WB-108 with repunched 8 digit and a misplaced upper right loop of an 8 digit into the bold gown fold. Strike is also strong with all stars centrils present. I believe this is an opportunity for Dansco collectors to acquire a choice 1842 Medium Date example with cool variety as a plus.

Would this piece grade if purchase? There are no hairlines and PCGS does suggest dipping certain coins before submission.

Market Acceptable $425 Scarce Grade, Retoned, Burchs Creek Collection. It seems that everyone is looking for the 1845 Philadelphia date as scarce in better grades. Mintage is 589,000 but the PCGS slabbed population is very low for this amount struck. PCGS has only certified (34) pieces at the AU50, AU53 and AU55 grade levels. That is not many considering the number of active Seated half dollar collectors in the market. The offered example is a no question AU with some reverse strike weakness at the eagle's left leg while the reverse is fully struck. Surfaces are covered with a uniform violet/gray patina with residual luster peeking through. My images have over emphasized the "voilet" color a tad. A piece that is well worth considering.

Colonel Green/Eric Newman, Original Old Paper Envelope Gray Patina, Bold Strike, Highwoods Collection. The original toning on this 1846 half dollar is typical of many silver pieces within the Eric Newman collection. Patina is crusty gray from being stored in old paper envelopes for decades. This example is choice with no blemishes whatsoever and a hammered strike. All obverse star centrils are connected and the facial and hair details are well defined; same is true for eagle feathers and claws. Under bright light, the crusty patina is mildly transparent and exposes residual luster and gun metal gray/blue coloring. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder.

Choice Original, Light Gold Patina, Seal Beach Collection. This lovely 1846 Philadelphia strike is strictly original. A close inspection of the obverse and reverse fields produced no hairlines whatsoever. Rather this piece has mint frost throughout the main devices, stars and reverse denomination. Images accurately capture the in hand coloring while a light source results in plenty of luster and a softening of the gold patina. What is this piece graded MS63? There are faint roller marks across DOL in the arrows and secondly, the luster is consistent with MS63 grade assignment. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

The overall 1846 Philadelphia mintage is high at 2.2M pieces but those strike with the 'Tall Date" date punch are scarce and bring a strong premium. Offered here is a no question AU example with reflective fields that are untouched. This piece has seen a long ago dip and now offers some light gold under bright light. My images are rather poor concerning this lovely half as the coin looks much better in hand. Strike is complete. There is a reverse die crack through the bottom of HALF to rim that could become a partial cud in later die states.

Original $1500 New January 12! Medium Date, Repunched 6, Original Gray Patina, Residual Luster, Scarce Grade That Deserves Attention. . 1846 New Orleans strikes, whether the Medium or Tall Date varieties, become quite scarce in AU and rare in Mint State grades. The Medium Date variety is the more available of the two but still deserves respect. A quick check of PCGS population report indicates only (11) example certified at AU58 grade level and a combined total of (13) in MS62 through MS64 with none higher. This lovely example offers semi transparent gray patina that melts when exposed to a light source. The result is reflective luster with light silver rose/gray appearance. Strike is nearly complete with a few stars lacking fully connect centrils and some weakness on the lower eagle left leg and arrow feathers. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and ready for inclusion in an advanced Liberty Seated half dollar date and mintmark set.

Surfaces are original with even light gray patina throughout obverse and reverse. Any blemishes are consistent with the assigned VF20 grade, which I believe to be fair. Please don't hesitate to purchase this half even if in a raw state. Remember that when coins circulate, they are in a raw condition and acting as our country's currency. The TPG certification phenomenon is relative new (since 1985). This is a nice original example for your set.

Choice $2150 Choice Original, Frosty Luster, Shattered Reverse Die State, Woodlands Collection. This will be a long description as there is much to discuss concerning this lovely 1848 New Orleans WB-17 half. My images fail to capture the bold frosty luster that is so apparent during bright light viewing. Surfaces are strictly original with a few ticks and weak obverse devices leading to the MS61 assigned grade. The obverse weakness is die related as this die is well worn, cracked and probably lapped too. This die is in the same late die states during the WB-18 variety. The reverse has a bold strike with a three point cud forming at (UNITE)D. This late die state is rated as R6 by Bill Bugert and a quick check with Bill indicates no other examples have been reported since his Federal Register was published. The reverse cracks are severe with thick die crack on top of UNITE letters but no shelf metal has formed due to fully disintegrated die. This is a mint state offering for the variety specialist. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder and approved by CAC.

The PCGS pop reports confirm that this is a better date regardless of the mintage. Surfaces are covered with a transparent medium gray and rose patina that also contains golden hues. This 1850 New Orleans half really excels under bright light as the toning melts revealing a rose and blue center that extends to the stars. At that point, the toning transitions to a golden ring surrounding the stars and into the rim. The reverse shifts to gun metal blue under a light source. There is one reverse field blemish to the left of the left wing. Grading is accurate at the VF35 level.

New February 16! Gem Original, Rusted Obverse Die, Undergraded, Incredible Eye Appeal, Seal Beach 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 Seal Beach Collection that deserves special consideration regardless of the asking price. The very best is worth a premium!
