An impressive 1834 O-109 Capped Bust half with mirrored fields on both sides. Most early halves are seen with frosty surfaces and heavily die flow lines in the milling. This specimen is the exact opposite with mirrored fields and bold crisp devices typical of freshly polished dies that were placed into a mint press. Gun metal gray-rose coloring is enhanced by the reflective luster. An ebony peripheral ring frames the obverse. This Capped Bust half has been difficult to accurate photograph and looks much better in hand than on the images. For example, the spotted obverse toning in front of Liberty has been amplified. It is barely visible during in hand inspection. Housed in PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder. A cool offering from Jim Poston that deserves a second look by specialists.

New July 22! Type 1 Reverse, Gem Original, Fiery Frosty and Reflective Luster, Proof-Like Fields, Heavily Clashed Dies, Exceptional Eye Appeal, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. A single Type 1 reverse and die pairing has been identified for the 1878 Carson City date. Most high grade Mint State survivors will be from the F-101 die pairing. Strikes are typically found with proof-like fields and frosty main devices. Diagnostics include two die defects on Liberty's upper arm near the gown clasp. The Type 1 reverse has die doubling on the denomination. The final E's in ONE DIME are strongly doubled. The exceptional example has been part of the Gerry Fortin reference collection for years and is housed in early NGC Fatty holder. Eye appeal is superior to near all examples seen. Brilliant reflective and frosty luster is stunning during bright light viewing. Adding in the center rose leads to fiery luster and cartwheels. Then the peripheral blues further enhance the appearance. I really hate to let this fabulous 1878-CC go to the market but I am committed to divest of all my Liberty Seated dimes other than the core date and mintmark set. A premium asking price but worth even dollar once viewing in hand.

A disputed mintage of 12,462 or 11,758 exists today for the first year 1870 Carson City Seated dollar date. The surviving population is reasonable leading to general availability for collectors. Most survivors will have extensive wear. At the EF or better grade level, this date is scarce when choice. The Murphys Collection is a no question choice original specimen with steely gray patina on both sides. Under a light source, the gray patina melts away to expose mostly unabraded reflective fields. There are a few tiny obverse contact marks on Liberty that are ancient and blend in well with the toning. A desirable example that should not last long on the GFRC price list. The Murphys Collection consignor did some soul searching in letting this piece go but more home improvements projects bring about a need for capital. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. Off the market for over 15 years with no CAC attempt.

Choice $2150 New July 21! Obverse Chin Whiskers, Creamy Light Gold Patina, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Completely Struck, Murphys Collection. Let's open the description for this lovely 1875-CC WB-4 Liberty Seated half with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Why? I see considerable value given the assigned NGC grade as compared to the physical coin. At the MS61 grade level, one would expect a baggy or problematic coin with limited eye appeal. Please throw that thought out the window for this offering. Brilliant frosty luster is vibrant with swirling cartwheels on both sides. Strike is completely executed with high relief stars and bold reverse devices. There is a planchet flaw or strike through error on the reverse, between left facing wing and left that probably accounts for the assigned grade. Since this issue is as made and not a post mint issue, I'm comfortable with a choice original quality rating. Eye appeal is most pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. A splendid Carson City offering from the Murphys Collection that belongs in an advanced collection.

Choice $1325 New July 21! Type 2 Reverse, Polished and Shattered Reverse, Frosty Luster, Light Gray Toning, Top 100 Varieties Opportunity, Murphys Collection. The 1878 Carson City F-104 die pairing, in its final die state, featured Obverse 2 paired with a left over and shattered reverse die from 1877. This 1877-CC Type 2 reverse die was previously paired with at least two obverse dies during 1877 production. During the 1877-CC F-110 pairing the reverse die is severely cracked. Ahwash speculates that the reverse die shattered, taking away the lower left ribbon and part of the bottom of the left maple leaf. After studying the 1877-CC Type 2 F-110 plate coin, in my reference collection, and this 1878-CC F-104 shattered reverse coin side by side, I believe that the die was severely polished or lapped throughout its face to produce the remaining coinage order for 1878 calendar year. There is a reduction in details throughout this reverse die, not only in the lower left wreath area. A shattering or cracking of the die in the lower wreath would have produced retained metal, instead we find a smooth polish surface with little device details in the lower left wreath. Similarly, the 1878-CC F-102 and F-103 reverse dies also exhibit similar weakness in the lower left wreath and left ribbon area. I suspect that all three Type2 reverse dies may have been left over from 1877 and were polished or lapped before being put into service for 1878 coinage. This newly offered example is important due to limited circulated and visual access to the remaining reverse devices. The heavy concentric reverse die crack is bold and visible during 10x loupe inspection. Surfaces are choice and original. Obverse luster is frosty while reverse luster is more reflective do to the reverse die polishing. There are no abrasions worthy of mention. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder without die variety attribution on the label. A wonderful Top 100 Varieties offering from the Murphys Collection to consider. The new owner should consider adding the F-104 and Top 100 designation to the label.

Of the four 1856 Large Date obverses, the F-103 obverse is unquestionably the most challenging to locate in higher grades of EF or better. I have few if any Mint State examples during my research or dealer career. This example is the best candidate located and purchased during 2004 to fill the F-103 plate coin slot at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors commonly known as the web-book. Surfaces are frosty and emit white luster during bright light viewing. Accurately graded and housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert.

Surfaces are perfectly original and covered with crusty gray patina. When submitting to PCGS, a straight Fine grade was expected.
