Choice $2300 New September 20! Classic Head Type, Plain 4 Variety, Rich Orange Gold Patina, Bold Strike, Choice Original Surfaces. 1834 brought an increasing gold bullion price that exceeded the face value of $5 half eagles. As a result, in 1834 the planchet specifications were altered and the size reduced. The new Classic Head design was engraved by William Kneass. The Classic Head design was short lived lasting only five years. Today, it is popular among type set collectors. The offered AU58 example brings substantial eye appeal into play. Fields are reflective with the entire piece covered by old time orange-gold patina. Surfaces are unabraded. This is a truly original and unmolested piece that will please the most selective collector. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.1 holder.

New September 17! Rare 1847 Repunched over 1846, Crusty Gray-Gold Patina, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Choice Example, Palos Verdes Collection. The 1847 over 1846 half dollar die marriage is popular and rare. Two reverse dies were paired with the 1847/6 obverse. When paired with the first reverse (WB-9), early and middle die state examples will clearly show the residual 1 and 46 digits below and to the left of the final 1847 date punch. Die polishing of the incorrect 1846 date punch leaves ragged edges on the lower base. In his Register of Liberty Seated Half Dollar Varieties, Bill Bugert indicates that the errant 1846 date punch was a medium date punch. Some WB-9 examples are known to be proof like which is the case for the Palos Verdes Collection specimen. Later die states, in particular the WB-10 die marriage, will be found without the remnants of the 1846 date punch. GFRC is pleased to be offering a choice original example of the 1847/6 WB-9 die variety with lightly mirrored fields and crusty gray-gold patina. Along with the strictly original and unabraded surfaces, the strike is 100% complete. Stars are in high relief along with completely defined eagle claws and arrow feathers on the reverse. Bright light viewing exposes residual reflective luster and the embedded gold coloring. I'm thoroughly impressed with the overall quality and eye appeal. A perfect example for the passionate collector of Liberty Seated halves. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. An important consignment from the Palos Verdes Collection. Last auction record is Stacks Bowers 11/17 where it realized $9600.

New September 15! Rare Short Flag Die Variety, Mirrored Fields, Translucent Light Gold Patina, Original Surfaces, Indiana Collection . The 1869 F-104 die pairing was employed for a tiny number of proof strikes along with a few circulation strikes. F-104a is by far the rarest of the Short Flag 1 circulation strike die varieties and has been assigned an R6 rarity rating in VF or better. At this time, I am aware of four pieces extant in major Seated dime die variety collections. The offered example came to market several years ago at a New Hampshire Coin Expo show and was immediately placed into the Indiana Collection. Just recently, the Indiana Collection purchased my PCGS MS63 web-book plate coin example and is ready to let the duplicate return to market. Offer price is the same as prior purchase price. This example sports bright mirrored fields. The brilliant reflective luster is so uncharacteristic for a typical 1869 Short Flag 1 dime. Obverse strike is complete while the reverse has weakness at the upper left wheat grains. A translucent light gold patina covers both sides. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder with edge ring insert. An important opportunity for Liberty Seated dime specialists.

New September 15! Rare at Grade, Typical Mirrored Fields, Bold Strike, Traces of Obverse Micro Porosity, Orchard Collection. The 1852 New Orleans date is a rarity in AU and Mint State grades in the Liberty Seated quarter series. Silver arbitrage was underway due to bountiful California gold that was flooding the America market and lowering the traditional gold to silver ratio. As silver bullion value exceeded face value, silver coinage disappears from circulation. Mintages plummeted. The 1852-O quarter has a production of just 96,000 pieces and many were likely melted. This survivor grades full AU with steely fields. Strike is above average for the date with nearly complete head and hammered reverse devices. Under a 10x loupe, there is very faint traces of micro porosity in the obverse field and what appears to be die rust within the gown lines. PCGS has assigned a Surfaces Smoothed-AU Details designation. Smoothing implies tooled metal which I do not see. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. Considerable value at the asking price given the AU surfaces and in hand eye appeal. An opportunity for Dansco album collectors.

Survivors are either damaged or less than original as most were mishandled among the mining communities. This specimen, from the Orchard Collection, has been obviously dipped to produce the white surfaces. Grade, based on wear, is EF45+ with residual luster. Obverse strike is complete while reverse has considerable weakness in lower eagle devices. There is a long horizontal obverse scratch at lower shield and base.

Original $1150 New September 14! Huge O Reverse, Early Die State, Crusty Gray Patina, Typical Surfaces, Indiana Collection. The 1839-O F-108 Huge O die variety is well known among collectors. A leftover huge O reverse from 1838-O is paired with a used 1839-O obverse. Early strikes from the F-108 die pairing have reasonable definition of the stars 1 through 3 and the date punch. For whatever reason, the obverse is lapped removing much detail and leaving a weak date punch.

The reverse has missing upper right bar at D(I)ME and the upper left bar of DI(M)E. This is a challenging variety to locate as careful attention is necessary to isolate the misplaced ball and loop of the 5 digit from the background shapes in the base. Dimes grading EF or better are the best candidates for cherry picking. No examples were reported between 1992 (first reported by Greer) and 2013. The Greer plate coin was sold into the Fortin reference collection during June 1995. Then during November 2013, another example apperared in the Eric P Newman/Col.

The piece serves as the 1890-S F-106 plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. Following is a portion of the web-book F-106 die variety discussion, "Ahwash lists the F-106 obverse and reverse die pair as a Medium S over Small S variety in his encyclopedia. His macro photograph of the Medium S over Small S mintmark does not match the Medium S mintmark position found on the reverse of the plate coin. It has been suggested by certain Seated Dime specialists that the macro photograph of the Medium S over Small S mintmark is actually that of the 1891-S Medium S over Small S mintmark. As a result, I do not agree with attempts to reference Ahwash 3 as a Medium over Small S mintmark variety." Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert and CAC approval.

Under the toning, faint hairlines are seen with careful inspection. This past cleaning results in reflective fields that are a bit too active to be original. Die doubling on lower reverse is bold with second olive branch distinct from the final rendering. Housed in new ANACS gold holder with standard ring insert. Not a perfect coin but perfectly acceptable for the double die reverse variety. The September 2019 price reduction makes this offering a better bargain.

New August 26! Important Carson City Date, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Choice Original Surfaces, Conservative Grading, Malvern Collection. Price Reduction Effective August 25 2019. A better Morgan Carson City date with mintage of 1,352,000. This 1892-CC offering from the Malvern Collection is most pleasing at the assigned MS61 grade level. Many collectors have come to expect issues at the MS61 grade level; excess marks or subdued luster. I'm sorry to disappoint those expectations as this example radiates crisp reflective luster with active cartwheels. Field are lightly mirrored while the devices are frosty. Abrasions are minimal with just a single mark on the cheek and some light field chatter. Please remember that reflective fields amplify marks leading to lower assigned grades which I believe is the case here. A rose-gold toning arc covers the upper obverse and lower reverse. Conservatively graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. Worthy of special consideration as CAC approval validates what my eyes see.

Cleaned $850 New August 26! Low Mintage Date, Reflective Luster, Dull Grey Patina, Old Cleaning, New Jersey Collection. 1845 dated Seated dollar production was limited to 24,500 strikes. This date is always in demand and popular due to low mintage. The New Jersey Collection consignor is back with a Seated dollar trio including this 1845 AU specimen. This piece has seen an uneven cleaning in the past. Obverse cleaning is faint leaving lightly mirrored fields that generate sharp reflective luster with gray-gold and rose coloring. Reverse cleaning is more severe with hairlines across fields and devices. The result is a dull gray appearance as the natural luster has been removed. Though not original, this AU level 1845 example would fit nicely into a Dansco collection. Pricing has been adjusted downward to reflect the cleaned surfaces.

Choice $1925 New August 25! Choice Original, Classic Gun Metal Gray-Blue Patina, Steely Reflective Luster, Accurate Graded, Peak Collection. Locating perfectly original Liberty Seated dollars will prove to be challenging as most in the marketplace have one issue or another.

Choice $3475 New August 25! Rare Grade, Frosty Cartwheels, Old Album Toning, New Chicago ANA Show Purchase. Mintage for 1856 New Orleans struck dimes is a high 1,180,000 pieces but like many of the With Stars dates from the deep southern mint, mint state pieces are cherished rarities. GFRC is most pleased to be offering the large sized CoinFacts PCGS MS64 plate coin. Thia example was struck from the F-107 die pair rather than the common F-104 repunched date. F-107 dies are well hubbed and defect free leading to pleasing strikes as is the case for this MS64 piece. Now onto the dime after a long preamble.... Brilliant frosty luster and swirling cartwheels immediate jump out when viewed under a light source. The colorful in hand toning is semi-transparent to the underlying luster. Toning is a combination of aquamarine, green, rose, blues, and gold on this near gem. Strike is fully executed with high relief stars and all wreath leave veins being detailed.

Choice $9250 New August 23! Key Carson City Seated Half Dollar Date, Old Album Radial Toning, Fully Struck, Important Opportunity . First year of half dollar production at the Carson City mint saw 54,617 pieces struck. This date is an important series key and only dwarfed by the formidable 1878-S and the underrated 1873 No Arrows Open 3. This is a lovely mid-grade circulated example with old album radial toning. During in hand inspection, the fields and devices appear as olive-gray with a darker gray ring surrounding stars and date. Bright light viewing brings a dramatic color transition. The obverse center shifts to light gray while the periphery is clear with a hint of gold. Darker gray-green reverse shades shift to uniform aquamarine during bright light inspection. There are no obvious or noticeable abrasions on either side. A solid original coin that spent several years in the channels of commerce followed by being well preserved including time in an old paper album. Strike is uniform and complete regardless of being a first year issue. Fairly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. The 1870-CC date infrequently comes to market and an important opportunity.
