Choice $3250 New April 26! Extremely Rare (R7) Die Pairing, Choice Original, Fiery Orange Gray Luster, Accurately Graded. Only the second example seen since published the Liberty Seated Dime website back in 2004. The F-103 die pairing, with second Medium O reverse, was discovered by New Orleans coin dealer, Lynn Ourso, in the late 1990 and included in the web-book when published in 2004. Since that time, I've searched for an example for my reference collection without luck. At the 2017 Central States Numismatic Society show, this mint state example surfaced and was purchased by GFRC. The mint state surfaces allow visibility into the terminal die state condition of Obverse 1 when paired with Reverse C; the second Medium O reverse that saw limited usage. Surfaces are perfectly original with thick gray-rose patina on the obverse and bullseye original orange-gold and surrounding a sky blue center on the reverse. The obverse die cracks are prominent while the reverse die crack at 5:00 is also clear. Luster is above average as is the eye appeal. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A special opportunity of the advanced Liberty Seated Dime die variety collector.

Choice $9975 New April 7! Choice Original, Blemish Free, Strike Weakness as Typical for Date, Undergraded, Florida Collection. Any of the big four Carson City Seated dime dates (1871 through 1874) are always in demand. The challenge is locating choice example with no porosity or other surface problems. Too many marginal examples are currently found in TPG holders therefore caution is always advised during the evaluation and purchase process. The 1872 date is the easier of the four dates to locate given its mintage of 35,480. PCGS has graded 16 examples in VF35 and only 6 in EF40. One of the challenges in grading this date is strike variability. Some examples are found with strike weakness at the head and gown line. Case in point is this choice original offering from the Florida Collection. While the surfaces are entirely blemish free and choice, the strike has typical weakness at the head and on portions of the reverse wreath. A close inspection of the scroll edges indicates minimal wear with this example being full EF40. However, PCGS decided to net grade the strike and assigned a VF35 grade. If you are in the market for an above average 1872 Carson City dime, then look no further. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. An important offering from the Florida Collection that deserves special consideration.

The doubling on the date digits is most evident within the 45 digits and the right of the 5 digit. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. The PCGS label reads, "RPD FS-301 WB-104 (FS-001.5)." Worthy of a CAC approval attempt. If you are considering adding the WB-104 example to an advanced Seated half dollar collection, then this is the example to purchase. I guarantee that you will be pleased with the originality and accurately grading.

Choice $4350 New April 4! 1877/6 Overdate, Rare Offering, Choice Original, Conservative Grading. . A rare offering for the Seated half dollar collector who wishes to add R5 or better varieties to a major collection. Few examples of the 1877/6 are known with the current rarity set at R7. This variety has the remnants of a previous 6 visible on the top surface of the final 7 in the date. It is recognized as an overdate in both the Guide Book and the Cherrypickers' reference, and is attributed by both of the leading certification services. The Eugene Gardner specimen, graded PCGS MS64, brought $9000 at recent Heritage Janurary FUN show sale. This EF45 example is conservatively graded and is a more economical entry point for the sophisticated collector who desires rare varieties. Surfaces are choice with uniform gray-brown patina covering obverse and reverse. The toning is a tad lighter on the reverse. Well struck with only stars 10-13 lacking connected centrils. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Conservative grading as the devices are close to AU50 in terms of wear. Please contact me if you wish to have a macro image of the undertype 6 digit on the flag of the final 7 digit in the date.
