Gem $3500 Superb Mirrors, Multi-Color Ring Toning, Exquisite Gem, Osprey Collection . While at the Pittsburgh ANA, Dan White would head off and survey the substantial bourse floor for potential inventory additions. He returned, at one point, with this gorgeous 1873 proof 3 cent silver and a smile on his face. I can understand the smile after laying eyes on this exquisitely preserved gem. Under a light source, the field are sharply mirrored and highly reflective. The luster amplifies beautiful ring toning. Let's tart with the obverse that has a sea-green center that is surrounded by peripheral yellow and copper-gold. The reverse patina is fully transparent with the same center sea-green and edge golden shades though the color intensity is softer. I'm calling a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for this wonderful Osprey Collection find. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder with CAC approval.

Barber 10C 1899 Barber 10C 1899

Gem $550 Watery Mirrors, Pristine Surfaces, Gem Original. Let's start the description for this 1899 proof Barber dime with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation.

This lot has been submitted to CAC but failed to sticker. It is certainly a borderline example and will please the new owner. Housed in NGC Gen 17 (2004-2008) holder.

Briggs 1-A
Gem $7650 New July 7! Exceptional Eye Appeal, Condition Census, Gem Original, Important Opportunity. There are times in a collecting career when important opportunities arrive to the market. Such is the case with the arrival of this condition census 1872 Seated quarter with only three certified at grade and none finer. This Philadelphia issue boasts a low mintage of 182,000 circulation strikes and is difficult to locate in all grades, due in part to many probably having been melted in the 1873 silver melt. Larry Briggs (1991) assigns a rarity rating of R.6+ to Uncirculated pieces. The eye appeal is exceptional with center rose and aquamarine rings transitioning to yellow and orange gold at the periphery. A similar toning scheme is also present on the reverse. Under a bright light the reflectance is sharp with vibrant cartwheels. Strike is 100% complete resulting in a premium presentation of the Type II hub designs. A review of the individual CoinFacts auction records has me convinced that this lot is the third finest as CACG has certified a single MS66 along with a stickered example at the same grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder. Please give this offering serious consideration as I'm going with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for astute collectors of the series.

This gem 1891-S quarter originates from both the Saw Mill Run and Tenafly Collection and deserves similar placement after a buyback. Eye appeal is that of Choice Mint State. Shimmering cartwheels and intermixed olive-rose and gold toning are delightful during bright light inspection. No long description is required as first sold by GFRC as a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Washington 25C 1961 Washington 25C 1961

Gem $295 New June 20! Intensely Toned, Exceptionally Rainbowed Reverse, Incredible for Type . Consignor Price Reduction. I've got to start this description with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as I've blown away by the coloration when placed under a bright light. GFRC images just begin to scratch the surface and cannot illustrate the intensely rainbowed reverse. Mirrors have a watery texture and are a fitting backdrop to a host of colors that shift in and out when modulating the coin. The obverse hosts violet, pink, rose and blue shades while the reverse exhibits bullseye rainbow toning that is quite transparent. Forget the guide books as this piece is in a class of its own and warrants a strong premium. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.

Choice $11500 Final Year Carson City Issue, Frosted Luster, Near Pristine Surfaces, Osprey Collection. As the final Carson City issue in the series, the 1893-CC ten is highly sought-after in all grades. The small 14,000 piece mintage ensures overall scarcity for surviving examples. CAC has approved 55 in all grades with roughly half being at the AU55/AU58 levels. In terms of 20th century coinage populations, there are few green bean stickered 1893-CC $10 gold to satisfy collector demand. The Osprey Collection is back with a really sweet example that is a pleasure to post to the GFRC price list. Abrasions are always an issue for larger gold pieces and the first attribute checked during a 10x review. This lot presents essentially unabraded surfaces that are a joy to examine. Also note is orange mint frost at the date, the denomination/mintmark, and the upper reverse that validates the strict originality. Overall coloration is a honey gold with hints of green-gold under a bright light. The consistent strike further enhances the charm. I'm going with a JUSY BUY IT NOW recommendation as Osprey has set an offer price below the $121,100 CAC price guide number. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.
