Choice $5450 New December 5! Key Date, Steely Residual Luster, Olive-Gray with Peripheral Blue-Gold, Osprey Collection. 1896 San Francisco strikes have the third smallest mintage among the three key Barber quarter dates; 188,039 pieces Only the 1901-S and 1913-S were produced in smaller quantities and are rigorously sought after. Most surviving 1896-S quarters grade VF or lower, making this XF coin elusive and highly sought-after. This choice example retains a fair amount of steely luster that is a surprise and pleasing. Toning is intermixed olive-gray with peripheral deep blues and gold on obverse and reverse. Conservative grading appears to be at hand given the raised headband, bold wingtips and residual luster. Sure, everyone wants CAC approved examples these days but the total population in both EF grade is (1) one! Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This example was sent to CAC and did not pass as the toning is not uniform crusty gray that has become synonymous with CAC stickers. Those collectors waiting for a CAC approved EF may be waiting for years. This offering is awfully nice at the grade and would fit well in a higher grade circulated set.

New December 4! Special 15% Price Reduction - Choice Original Surfaces, Tough 1852 Philadelphia Date, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection. As a reference, GFRC sold a PCGS AU58 example for $1700 during April 2017.

Hard brilliant luster is readily apparent during initial bright light inspection. Others might call the luster crisp due to slightly mirrored fields and swirling cartwheels. Strike is sharply impressed with high relief stars and along with full claws and arrow stems on the reverse. A golden-rose patina is mostly transparent to the underlying luster.

This is a prominent variety in the Seated quarter series and is listed in the Guide Book, which assigns a substantial premium to this overpunched mintmark error. The smaller mintmark was from a punch likely intended for a Seated dime and is plainly visible underneath the larger S, peeking out to the right on this example. The rims are not quite full, as expected, but the all-important mintmark is bold and the repunching is evident to the naked eye. Surfaces are obviously worn, but scratches and other defects typically seen at this grade level are minimal. Housed in a PCGS Gen 5.0 (2014-2015) Dupont hologram holder with CAC approval.

The rare 1872-S quarter was actually struck in higher quantities, to the extent of 83,000 examples, although the survival rate for that elusive issue is somewhat lower than for the 1857-S quarter. This CAC-approved example has no significant surface issues, and the coin exhibits a mix of color underlying a light brown palette, with shades of rose, aqua, and chestnut underneath.

CAC has approved but 18 examples in all grades combined. This piece boasts smooth surfaces with lighter fields offsetting the more richly toned protected areas at the rims and around the central figures. A very light line extends from the eagle's beak, but the aesthetic appeal is exceptional for an 1858-S at this grade level.

While it's nice to have an unlimited checkbook and first shot at the best collections when they are broken up, the reality for most collectors is quite different. But one can be a connoisseur at any level, as the Mountain View consignor demonstrates. The present coin is a choice example of a low-mintage issue, with significant foundational value as a pleasing, rare piece. Dappled olive toning graces medium gray surfaces on both sides, while the fields are above average for a coin at this technical grade. The CAC population is a mere 20 pieces.

This will be one of first coins examined when viewing a set of quarters, and there will be no apologizing for this example. Even silver color is surrounded by chestnut tones at the rims while ample "dirt" hides in the protected areas - precisely the wear pattern one expects on an original coin.

Low mintage is again the watchword for the San Francisco Seated quarter series, with only 28,000 pieces struck in this year.

Medium gray toning covers both sides of this example, with heavier dirt in the lower portions of the obverse and reverse.

There is a small patch of roughness above the right wing, even so this remains a most appealing example for the grade. Briggs 1-A, the only die pair for this issue, with mintmark punched to the left.

Cleaned $875 New November 30! Union Administration, W-1 Die Pairing, Brilliant Surfaces, Cleaned, Typical Strike, R6 Rarity. . The W-1 die pairing produced the initial Union Administration strikes during January 1861. The following month, mint authority transferred to the State of Louisiana. Though the total Union mintage is estimated to be 330,00 by Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert, Union strikes are rarities in today's market. This offering is one of the few handled by GFRC. There is a lack of published research that explains the difficulty in locating Union strikes as compared to Louisiana and CSA counterparts. However, a personal conversation with a high level mint employee produced the theory that most pieces were exported to Europe during early 1861 for Confederate States weapons purchases. This example has bold AU details, a sharp scroll, and reverse eagle feathers. Strike is typical with weakness at the gown line and eagle legs and claws. This piece has seen a mechanics cleaning with faint hairlines throughout the obverse and reverse. Regardless, the eye appeal remains decent. Since Union strikes are so difficult to locate and under strong collector demand, this example would be an ideal filler in a complete 1861-O die variety set.

Original $5150 New November 27! Rare Open 3 Variety, No Arrows Date, Near-Choice Original Surfaces, Natural Gray Toning, Affordable Price Point. The 1873 Open 3, No Arrows Liberty Seated half is a challenging rarity. In A Guidebook of Liberty Seated Coins, Q. David Bowers writes the following concerning this date, "Mintage figures were estimated years ago as 587,000 Closed 3 coins and 214,200 Open 3 coins from the Philadelphia Mint before arrows were added besides the date. These figures seem to have been guesses and seem to have no validity.....With a collective total of 801,800 coins of both varieties produced from five total dies (a single set for Open 3), one might speculate that the actual Open 3 mintage is much lower and below estimated mintage. Beyond that, it is believed that many of these were melted upon institution of the new weight standard that took effect April 1, 1873, perhaps accounting for rarity and high value." This offering has near-choice original surfaces that are covered with a medium gray patina. Strike is typical with residual visibility of die pits throughout Liberty's upper body area. There are a few ancient marks in the right obverse field mentioned for accuracy. The reverse fields are unabraded. This in only the second 1873 No Arrows Open 3 handled by GFRC as a testament to its rarity. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder and ready for placement in an advanced Liberty Seated half dollar collection.

The upper loop of the under type 6 digit is clearly visible on the flag of the final 7 in the date. There has been ongoing speculation as to the potential technical mechanism that would explain the presence of the earlier 6 digit. The same situation has been document on a single 1877 dime obverse employed at the Carson City mint. Whatever the mechanism, there clearly is evidence of another digit atop the second 7 and most likely an errant 6. This example offers exceptional quality and eye appeal for the variety.

New November 25! Very Rare Die Pairing, Finest 1842-O F-106 Known, Near-Gem Original, Center Rose, Peripheral Aquamarine. At the 2019 Winter Baltimore show, this 1842 New Orleans F-106 specimen surfaced and was consigned to GFRC on the last day of the show. I was stunned when this piece walked up to the table since only having a raw EF40 example in my reference collection. What blew me away was a partial obverse cud at 10:00 - 11:00 that looks nearly identical to that of the 1842-O F-104a Small O die variety. Since this 1842-O F-106 is close to Mint State, every diminutive detail is available for study. The rust pit by Liberty's nose is boldly defined along with the extra die gouge "finger" at the shield edge. But the partial rim cud is the key new diagnostic revealed by this offering. Let's check the 1842-O F-106 web-book description to comprehend the significant of this new finding. "The F-106 obverse is paired with a badly lapped reverse die that I have designated as Reverse F. Reverse F exhibits a Medium O that is centered in both horizontal and vertical planes. The mintmark and design elements are very weak. Until November 2006, no other die pairings with 1842-O Reverse F were known. However, the author located an 1841-O Medium O dime that has been struck from this Reverse F die. When employed in 1841, this reverse die exhibits more device element details suggesting a die lapping between the pairing with 1841-O obverse die and the 1842-O F-106 obverse die." The new specimen is beautifully toned with center rose-gold and peripheral aquamarine and blue. Both sides are fully struck adding to the importance of accessing subtle diagnostics. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder and added as the new 1842-O web-book plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors.

Choice $750 New November 25! With Stars Key Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Ebony-Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. An ideal candidate for a mid grade circulated Seated dime date and mintmark set. CAC approval validates what is obvious to my eyes. Surfaces are toned over with crusty ebony-gray skin that is 100% original. Eye appeal is above average due to nice contrast between the lighter main devices and darker toned fields. Surfaces are fully choice regardless of fairly extensive amount of time in circulation. If that 1846 hole in your set has become annoying, this lovely Fine 12 example should alleviate the anxiety. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.

New November 25! No Arrows Type, Choice Original Surfaces, Uniform Olive-Gold Patina, CAC Approval. The 1853 No Arrows dime remains elusive in all grades other than Mint State. 1853 was a substantial transitional year for American coinage. Early in 1853, the Philadelphia Mint produced 95,000 dimes under the old weight standard of 2.67 grams. Subsequently in 1853, the planchet weight was reduced to 2.49 grams. To signify the change, engravers initially hand punched arrows on either side of the date, and proceeded to strike over 12 million pieces. Since issued by the Philadelphia mint, there were enough local collectors to save some Mint State example with the balance reaching circulation. Circulated survivors are infrequently offered. Adding CAC approval criteria leads to only nice in all graded with three at AU58. The offered example is one of the three CAC approved at AU58. Surfaces are toned a uniform olive-gold with some frosty luster radiating through the fairly crusty patina. Strike complete and pleasing. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. An important opportunity for the Liberty Seated dime date and mintmark set collector or those pursuing AU58 CAC collections.

This event is captured with F-104a survivors where large internal cuds are present between Star 1 to the rock and also on top of the base above the 18 digits. This die state is so compelling and was included in the Top 100 Varieties set. At the 2019 Winter Baltimore show, a super choice example surfaced and was consigned to GFRC. This example is covered with darker gun metal gray toning along with embedded gold. Bright light viewing exposes the gold shades that are concentrated at the peripheries. Strike is typical for the die pairing. Since grading VF35, then piece is affordable and presents good value. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Gem Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Golden Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded. 1859 Philadelphia struck Liberty Seated dimes are generally available in the marketplace. At GFRC, we handle a fair number. This date was particularly difficult to source when emphatic on offering complete strikes; most will have some points of weakness. This excellent F-107 example meets my three criteria sourcing requirement; originality, complete strikes and eye appeal. One immediately notes the absolutely hammered strike throughout obverse and reverse. Stars are bold and rounded as is Liberty's head details well formed gown line. The reverse wreath leaves and veins are deeply impressed. The piece is no question original with a rich layer of mint frost throughout Liberty and the shield. Fields are also frosty with no disturbances. Toning is subtle with faint gold mostly at the obverse and reverse rim. There is bold cartwheel luster than one would expect from a Seated dime at the MS66 grade level. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This lovely 1859 dime is also the F-107 plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. A strong candidate for individual building a high grade set of Liberty Seated dimes.

New November 25! Rare Grade! Original Gray Patina, Well Struck, Important Opportunity. The 1861-S date in the Liberty Seated dime series has my complete respect. I will make every effort to purchase all original examples seen; few EF and AU examples have been found in six years while operating GFRC. This freshly graded example has the classic 1861-S appearance since the obverse is from the Type 1 With Legend design hub. I suspect that Anthony Paquet (Assistant Mint Engraver) engraving influence is on full display with weak device features and thin lettering. As a result the obverse device details are less well defined than the sharp reverse devices. The 1861-S date wore done faster on the obverse than reverse. This example is no question original with gray-gold toning and offers residual golden luster. There is some peripheral speckled ebony on the obverse and faint reverse ebony verdigris. Reverse strike is exceptional. Mintage was limited to 172,000 strikes with all entering West coast circulation. Few examples are known in Mint State. Accurately graded and housed in new large font NGC holder. I'm sure a Liberty Seated dime specialist will grab this example.

Original $850 New November 20! Underrated Date at Offered Grade, Natural Gray Patina, Obvious Reverse Strike Doubling. Ex Tenafly Collection. 1868 Seated dime San Francisco strikes are slowly securing the recognition deserved. This date has been underrated for years and locating any example in problem free AU or better is cause for celebration. Mintage is a low 260,000 with PCGS population report showing only eleven graded in all AU grades (AU50, AU53, AU55 and AU58). Considering PCGS has been in operation since 1986, that is one example graded every three years. Surprisingly, this date is more available in mint state with twenty pieces graded. The offered example is strictly original with classic gray patina and residual luster that is stronger on the reverse. Overall strike is better than average given this piece was produced from early die state dies. The reverse exhibits heavy strike doubling at the lower ribbon ends and mintmark. Interestingly, Breen listed this strike doubling as #3347 in his Encyclopeida and commented, "1868-S Doubled rev. die, Very rare. Doubling obvious on ribbons and parts of the wreath." Research by Fortin has proven that the "doubling" is actually strike doubling and not working die doubling during hubbing process. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

This offering is the with motto type. Surfaces are a uniform light gray and essentially unabraded. Some remaining mint frost can be seen with the legend letters. Fields present hints of rose coloring during bright light viewing. I've assigned a Market Acceptable quality rating as this piece is borderline original. A popular yet scarce date, mintmark and design type combination.

Gem $850 New November 7! GFRC Consignor Buyout, 1818/7 Overdate, Gem Original Surfaces, Steely Gray-Gold Luster, Active Cartwheels, Undegraded. A gorgeous offering of the 1818/7 O-102 overdate with Small 8 date punch. Overdates are becoming quite popular of late. A wonderful example that is undegraded. Steely gray-gold luster is crisp under a light surface. Cartwheels are active due to ample residual mint frost surrounding the stars, date, and reverse legend. When first viewing the assigned PCGS grade, I had to do a double take as this piece is full AU50 and then some. Surfaces are pristine with no distractions whatsoever. Worthy of a Gem original quality rating at the assigned EF45 grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 style holder with CAC approval that was definitely warranted. Recently part of a consignor buyout. Attractively priced considering CDN CAC price guide is $910.

Gem $775 New November 7! GFRC Buyout & Price Reduction, Better Overton Variety, Gem Original, Steely/Satiny Luster, Well Struck, Peripheral Ebony Toning, Port Matilda Collection . A visual striking 1825 O-105 Capped Bust half dollar and better die pairing to consider. I'm a junky for old tiime thick crusty toning on early silver type coins. But the toning must be well balanced between center to edge. A gem original example with no blemishes whatsoever. Shimmering luster borders between steely and satiny with active cartwheels under a light source. Gray-rose center luster transitions to mottled ebony at the peripheries. Obverse strike is complete with nicely rounded stars but the reverse lacks some definition at the denominations. Housed in PCGS Gen 3.1 old green holder and worthy of a GFRC gem quality rating as I love the overall eye appeal and pristine surfaces. Recent buy-out from consignor with reduction pricing that is most attractive for the eye appeal.

Choice $435 New November 6! Better Carson City Date, Natural Gray Patina, Near-Choice Surfaces, Massachusetts Collection. Liberty Seated dimes minted at the Carson City mint during 1878 will be found with Type 1 and Type 2 reverses. The distinction is important for collectors. Coinage struck with the Type 1 reverse is the better alternative for date and mintmark set collectors. The F-101 strikes are well executed with higher grade examples having proof like field characteristic. 1878-CC dimes struck with Type 2 reverses (three different) come with weak reverse devices due to die lapping or heavy polishing. Type 2 reverse dimes (F-102, F-103, and F-104) are better suited for die variety collectors. The Massachusetts Collection consignor has just divested this choice original example which happens to be struck with F-101 dies. Fields are covered with uniform gray skin and are unabraded other than two micro ticks above the ONE in the denomination. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder.
