Choice $900 New April 18! GFRC Buy-Out and Price Reduction! F-101, Original Creamy Luster, Bold Obverse Strike, Very Scarce in Mint State. Ex. Birmingham Collection. I still don't understand why higher grade 1849 dimes lack respect. The PCGS population reports are low at (7) MS63, (10) MS64, (1) MS65 and (1) MS66. The MS64 number has regrade attempts due to a large MS65 price jump. This offering has typical satiny surfaces with a hint of light gold on the obverse. While the obverse exhibits satiny texture, the reverse is frosty with vibrant cartwheels. Strike is all there with complete head details and bold star centrils while the reverse has complete wreath leaves other than a spot at 10:00 which is typical for the F-101 die pairing. Surfaces are essentially blemish free with only one obverse tick by star 3 needing mention. Housed in old PCGS Gen 4.1 blue label holder (2002-2004). Please note that the plastic holder wear at the obverse (right facing breast) and reverse (at E in DIME).

Choice $885 New April 18! GFRC Buy-Out and Price Reduction! Challenging Date, Choice Original Gray Toned Surfaces, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded. A choice original specimen with dusty light gray patina. Strike is typical for the date with some weakness at the upper head and at the upper left reverse wheat grains. Surfaces are entirely blemish free. This date has a mintage of 140,000 across two die pairings. All 1867-S dime come with a strong mintmark, even in the lower circulated grades. Well struck examples of Variety 102 can be located but the typical strike brings some weakness at the head. This date is not found with significant die cracks due to the small mintage and well maintained dies. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and CAC approval.

F-104
Market Acceptable $625 New April 18! Polished and Cracked Reverse, Top 100 Varieties #79, Charcoal Gray Patina, Well Struck, Conservative Grading, Lakewood Collection. The 1878-CC F-104 die variety results when a heavily lapped and shattered reverse die from 1877 (Type II Reverse A) is paired with one of the two known obverse dies for Carson City strikes. 1877-CC Type II Reverse A die was previously paired with at least two obverse dies during 1877 production. During the pairing with the 1877-CC F-110 obverse, the reverse die is severely cracked. Kam 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 II Variety 110 coin and several 1878-CC shattered reverse coins, I believe that this die was severely polished or lapped throughout its face to produce the remaining coinage needed in 1878. There is reduction in details throughout die relief, 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. Please check 1878-CC Variety 102 and 103. Both Reverse B and C also exhibit similar weakness in the lower left wreath and left ribbon area. I suspect that all three Type II reverse dies may have been left over from 1877 and were polished or lapped before being put into service for 1878 coinage. The offered F-104 example, from the new Lakewood Collection consignor, features charcoal gray obverse toning along with steely residual luster. The reverse is 100% original with residual luster and light gray coloring. Overall strike is well executed. Housed in ANACS gold label holder and AU55 Details: Scratched - Corroded designation. I'm not in agreement with the Scratched and Corroded opinion. This piece has no signs of corrosions whatsoever and the few reverse hairlines are not worthy of a Scratched designation. The obverse has probably seen a light clean while the reverse is strictly original. The F-104 die pairing is a Top 100 Variety entry. Locating examples at the AU grade level with full defined features, as is the case here, will prove to be challenging. This piece has been net priced to a level that I believe is fair.

An exceptional offering from the Gerry Fortin reference collection and the 1842-O F-101 plate coin within The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors online web-book. 1842 New Orleans struck dimes circulated heavily in the deep south with few mint state survivors. In addition, locating fully struck mint state examples could be a decade long challenge. It is with much trepidation that this 1842-O F-101 dime is released from a lifetime collection as purchased during 2002 at Heritage auction. The GFRC images speak for themselves. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.1 holder and freshly graded at the time of Heritage sale.

The "CSA Obverse" is a significant piece of of Civil War history that has been pursued by specialized collectors since first cataloged by Beistle in 1929.

This example is found in a middle die state with the die crack from Liberty's nose to the rim being obvious under a 10x loupe. Crusty gray patina is uniform on both sides.

The large letters reverse was introduced in 1842, but the date style was not yet finalized, and this year features both small and large dates. Small-date coins, like this, typically feature weak strikes, but this is a pleasing exception with complete detail and just a touch of weakness in the arrow fletching and left talons. The only marks of a note are a few reverse ticks below OF. A quality Seal Beach offering, housed in a PCGS Gen 1.2 (1986-1989) old green label holder.

Choice $1150 New April 11! Choice Original, Steely Luster, Seal Beach Collection. Fiery orange and red surround a more softly-toned Liberty on this collectible 1848 half. The obverse and reverse centers are silver, with scattered whispers of rose and blue-green. Steely luster radiates through the toning and the overall effect is pleasing. The 18 in the date is repunched, with the initial impression apparently judged too close to the base of Liberty. The reverse die is doubled, most strongly visible in HALF. The strike is typical, with some weakness in the left talons, arrow feathers, and obverse stars. From the Seal Beach Collection, slabbed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-date) holder.

Gem $1425 New April 11! Gem Original, CAC, Seal Beach Collection, Just Buy It Now. The CAC-approval of this attractive Seated half is a worthy beginning, but it takes more than that to qualify for the much-coveted GFRC "Just Buy It Now" rating. Smooth, original surfaces host a mélange of delicate pastels surrounded by deeper toning at the peripheries. A hammered strike fully reveals Liberty's head and the lower detail in the eagle, often a problem point on Seated halves. The luster illuminates the engraver's touch and toning imparted over time in the nearly 170 years since this coin was struck, and the overall eye-appeal is considerable. The 1850-O is not the most difficult date in the series, but coins of this quality are noteworthy regardless of the absolute rarity. An outstanding piece from the Seal Beach Collection, housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) blue label holder.

Gem $5775 New April 9! Partial Drapery, Eric P. Newman Collection, Old Paper Envelope Toning, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Tenafly Collection. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green/Eric P. Newman. The F-108a Partial Drapery die variety that results from a clash of the E in DIME near the elbow along with heavy reverse die clashing on the right reverse. NGC decided to not list the Partial Drapery designation on the brown EPN label claiming the obverse clash mark was too weak. I discussed this directly with NGC prior to the November 2013 Eric P. Newman sale since the "extra drapery" clash mark is visible but muted by the thick patina. To set the record straight, this high grade mint state example was struck from the partial drapery dies and during the correct die state. This gorgeous example has satiny luster and a hammered strike. Gem surfaces are smooth and covered with thick crusty olive-gray, lilac, and chestnut-brown toning. Housed in the original EPN brown label holder with CAC approval. This piece brought $6756 at the November 2013 auction. Sold into the Tenafly Collection during mid 2017 and now back on the market.

Choice $1225 New April 7! Popular Shattered Obverse Terminal Die State, Crusty Gray Patina, Choice Original, Tenafly Collection. Ex. Indiana and Grey Soldier Collections. One of the key varieties to the Top 100 Varieties set due to a spectacular obverse die crack that extends from Liberty's head down through stars 9 - 13 and across the date digits into the left rim below star 1. The die break is severe with shelf metal throughout most of the die crack and one of the latest die states seen. Why this die held together is a function of being use as an anvil die in the production press. If the hammer die (reverse) were as cracked as the obverse, then it would probably have broken apart with a large cud forming. Crusty is the operative word for the thick brown-gray patina that covers obverse and reverse. Surfaces are strictly original, never messed with and choice at the assigned grade level. Reverse strike is surprisingly good given the obverse die degradation. The obverse is weakness struck at the gown line and lower leg, which is typical for the variety. Grading the F-102 variety is better accomplished on the reverse. An important Top 100 die variety from the amazing Tenafly Collection.

Choice $5650 New April 4! CAC Condition Census, Rare in Mint State, Rich Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Accurately Grades, Osprey Collection. The 1852-O has the second lowest mintage of any Type 1 New Orleans mint gold dollar and is also the second rarest. Locating choice examples in higher uncirculated grades is very difficult. The CAC population report validates this fact with only three approved at MS63 level and three finer. Rich frosty luster is the highlight of this choice original offering. Surfaces are essentially abrasion free with a few very faint wispy hairlines seen under bright light viewing and nothing else. Obverse die is heavily cracked with die cracks from 9:00 to Liberty's nose and another from star to the bonnet. Coloring is natural medium green-gold. Strike is typical with the reverse DO(LL)AR and 8 digit being a tad weak. Overall, a quality representative of this rare date in Mint State. Freshly graded and housed in Gen 6.0S Gold Shield PCGS holder with CAC approval. An exceptional advanced collector offering from the Osprey Collection.

Original $285 New April 4! PCGS Labeling Error - A Conversation Piece, Drapery Type, Frosty Silver Gray Surfaces, Typical Strike, Dr. Glenn Peterson Collection. Are you are collector of major PCGS labeling errors? If so, this 1839 Drapery Liberty Seated half dollar would make for a fun conversation piece. 1839 was a transition year for the 50c denomination. The Philadelphia mint would end the modified Reich design for Capped Bust half dollars, with a switch to the Liberty Seated design later in the year. Therefore 1839 brings both Reeded Edge and Liberty Seated design information to the PCGS database. When grading and labeling this Peterson Drapery Seated half, PCGS believed it to be a Reeded Edge piece and assigned, "RE, Capped. Lg. Letters" to the label along with "WB-102, Peterson". What a remarkable quality control error and conversation piece! The label contains high level Capped Bust designation along with the correct Liberty Seated half dollar WB-102 Drapery identification plus the Dr. Peterson's pedigree. The actual coin features frosty surfaces with light silver-gray patina and some residual luster under a light source. Strike is typical. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0S Gold Shield holder with Peterson pedigree on label. From the Dr. Glenn Peterson Collection. A fun offering from those who enjoy numismatic oddities.

The Large O F-105 Reverse is rotated left by approximately 45 degrees on a tiny number of examples of 1850 New Orleans struck dimes. Dick Osburn was the first to discover and report a rotated reverse for 1850 New Orleans coinage. The discovery piece graded VG-8.

We should not be surprised to find an 1850 New Orleans dime with a rotated reverse considering that three of the four 1849-O die pairings produced a rotated reverse event. From this new evidence, we know that the systematic die alignment problem that plagued the New Orleans mint in 1849 extended into 1850.

Second year of San Francisco Seated half dollar production with nearly all of the 211,000 struck entering circulation. As a result, survival rates are quite low for modern day collectors. The raw VF25 example has light gray patina with some rough surfaces. Fields have a substantial amount of micro ticks but none large and overly distracting. Gray toning appears natural but there are a few subtle hairlines in the obverse fields that appear during detailed 10x loupe inspection.

Important Carson City Date, Cloudy White Surfaces, Hairlined Cleaning, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Murphys Collection. 1871 Carson City halves are one of the scarcest and most popular dates in the entire Liberty Seated half dollar series. Mintage is a limited 153,950 coins with most survivors having one issue or another. Truly choice original examples are rare. A quick CAC review indicates 22 total approved but most are in low circulated grades. This AU example, from the Murphys Collection, has substantial device details. Unfortunately, both sides have seen a mechanical cleaning that has left hairlines throughout the fields. Due to the cleaning, surfaces are colored a milky white with some residual reflective luster. Strike is complete. There are no other abrasions other than the hairlines. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with edge insert and priced according to the designation. Not every collector can own an AU 1871-CC half dollar considering the $7,500 to $10,000 price range. At $2,850, this example is attractively priced for the value collector and should not last long.

What an exciting offering to kick off the Midwest Collection at GFRC! The Eric P. Newman 1832 JR-3 specimen presents a scarce die variety that is extremely rare in higher grades.

The reverse, on this example, is shattered with massive internal breaks connecting the arrow heads to AMERIC(A) to the rim. The sharply impressed design elements show just a touch of wear and traces of mint luster occasionally shine through pleasing shades of old envelope pinkish-gray toning. Housed in the original NGC EPN brown label holder along with CAC approval. This example sold for nearly $1900 during the November 2013 Newman sale and does not have another auction record since that time. The original Col. EHR Green storage envelope is included in the sale.

Gem $4850 New March 31! Outrageous Gem, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Orange-Gold Patina, Essentially Blemish Free, Conservatively Graded, Winesteven Collection. The Winesteven Collection consignor is back in a huge way with a newly divested duplicate from his spectacular United States gold type set. GFRC is thrilled to be offering this outrageous 1904 Liberty $20 double eagle that is conservatively graded at the MS65+ level. Yes, this piece could easily be offered at full MS66 level as so well balanced and attractive. Let's walk through the key parameters of luster, color, strike and abrasions for grasping the entire picture and why you should step up with a purchase. Satiny luster and vibrant cartwheels tease the eyes during bright light inspection. Old time orange-gold coloring is consistent with expectations for naturally preserved surfaces. Strike is hammered with high relief stars and deeply defined scrolls, tail and arrow feathers on the reverse. Finally, there are essentially no abrasions on this example. The only break in mint frost occurs at star 9 with a short contact mark. Otherwise, the fields are perfectly clean including Liberty's face. It is difficult to imagine that the Winesteven Collection consignor could locate a finer example but he did much to the joy of the GFRC community. Housed in blue label Gen 4.5 PCGS holder. Since less than 4% of MS65s and MS65+s for this date graded by PCGS and NGC merit CAC approval, those with a green been CAC sticker always sell for a significant spread over the 96% without CAC approval. Therefore the offer price is firm and reasonable given the overall balanced nature of this outrageous specimen.

Choice $1200 New March 26! Near Gem Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! A deep gold ring surrounds the figure of Libety on this lovely, CAC-approved piece. Frosted, silver devices stand in contrast to the mirrored fields, and, as with many of the late date Seated quarters, the overall impression is that of a prooflike piece. The line in the lower part of the obverse shield is a characteristic die scratch (Briggs 1-A) and does not impact the technical grade. The strike is typical for the 1887 issue, with flat stars resembling those of a Morgan dollar. CAC liked the overall effect, and we think the new owner will agree. Housed in a Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert, and from the Sunset Point collection.

New March 26! Choice Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! The surfaces of this better-date Seated quarter resemble an artist's palette, including a myriad of color from russet to rose to royal blue. The strike is complete, better than usually seen for this issue with defined star centers. The central portions of Liberty and the eagle are partly brilliant, and there are no marks of note.

Choice $775 New March 26! Near Gem Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! Representing the last year of a 53-year run, the 1891 Seated quarter wraps up one of the more challenging series in U.S. numismatics. This example is brilliant, with mustard toning scattered about the stars and reverse legend. Marks are minimal, and only a couple ticks below Liberty's knee keep this coin out of the gem uncirculated category. The strike is better than average for the 1891 issue, with about the half the star centers delineated. From the Sunset Point Collection, freshly graded and housed in a 2015-style PCGS holder.

Original $3850 New March 26! Near Choice Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! This is a rare coin in a remarkable state of preservation, as PCGS has certified a mere 12 examples at the uncirculated level. This AU piece exhibits gray and copper shading with bits of crust in the obverse stars and date. The strike is typical for the issue, with some weakness in the head and stars, and die clashing is evident on both sides. The crucial O-mintmark is bold, designating this piece as one of the few remaining of the 68,000 New Orleans quarters struck in this year. Housed in an old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert, and part of a complete set of Liberty Seated quarters offered by the Sunset Point Collection.

Original $1950 New March 25! Near Choice Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! Another high-grade branch Mint piece from the Sunset Point collection. The 1854-O Seated quarter is somewhat available in unc but remains more elusive than its Philadelphia counterpart. This example is mostly brilliant with a light cover of chestnut toning over the figure of Liberty. A few hairlines in the left obverse field limit the technical grade, but there are no other marks of note. The strike is complete with detailed star centers. Briggs 1-D, identified by the die scratch in the reverse dentil above M. This issue is rich with varieties, and new discoveries likely await. Why not get started with this piece?

Original $475 New March 25! Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! Briggs 2-B, with a typical strike for that variety - obverse stars are incomplete and there is some reverse weakness under the shield. An obverse horizontal line extends from star 12, but there are no other marks inconsistent with the grade. Silver toned with a bit of "dirt" in protected areas, particuarly the obverse and reverse shields.

Briggs 1-A
Original $4500 New March 25! Hall of Fame Collection, Condition Scarcity, Evenly Toned.. Description added! Briggs 1-A, the only known dies, type I/I. This coin is an "old friend" from the Jim Gray 2004 sale, where this cataloguer evaluated the coin as nice for the grade. At the time the coin sold at a healthy premium to the published guide prices. Jim Gray went on to become an LSCC Hall of Famer, and today the Jim Gray auction sale catalog remains a useful reference. Gray was one of the first to recognize the condition scarcity of the San Francsico quarters from 1858-1861, and this EF 1859-S example is certainly in the mix, with only six pieces graded higher by NGC. Briggs noted no uncirculated examples in 1991, and that holds true today. The present coin is minimally abraded with with even, medium color, and just the right amount of "crust" to ensure originality. Ex: Jim Gray Collection (Bowers and Merena, 7/2004), lot 2237. Prior to that, Jim Gray noted purchasing the coin at the 1983 ANA convention. From the Sunset Point collection and housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s. This piece has much to recommend - eye appeal, condition rarity, pedigree, and LSCC club history to boot.

Original $9000 New March 25! Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! One of the highlights of the Sunset Point collection, this conditionally rare 1860-S quarter is exceeded by only seven grading "events" at NGC, of which several likely represent resubmissions. Gray and brown tones predominate, with deeper hues in the upper obverse stars and lower portion of the reverse legend. There is some discoloration around the eagle's head. Surfaces are lightly abraded with no major distractions. Well-struck with some weakness in the stars, as Briggs notes for 1860-S quarters, which were struck from a single die pair. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert, dating to the late 1990s. This coin offers substantial foundational value - absolute rarity, conditional rarity, and NGC certification, assuring a standard of quality.

Choice $725 New March 25! Choice Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! A high-grade Seated quarter from the dawn of the Civil War, this well-detailed piece exhibits frosty, brilliant luster with light shades of blue-green on the reverse. The strike is complete with strong star centers and distinct arrow fletching. Liberty's curved fingers and the more relaxed claws identify this as a type II/II example, a well-known variety for this year. Type I and II die pairings in the Liberty Seated quarter series are not completely worked out, and new discoveries likely await the eagle-eyed collector. Housed in an old (1990s) NGC holder with standard ring insert. From the Sunset Point complete set of Liberty Seated quarters.

Briggs 1-A
Original $17500 New March 25! Original, Sunset Point Collection. Description added! Seated quarters of certain issues, especially branch Mint pieces, simply did not surivve in high grades. Neither PCGS or NGC have cerified a Mint State 1861-S quarter, putting this piece toward the top of the condidtion census. Although PCGS has certified eight pieces at the AU58 level, it is certain this number includes multiple resubmissions from hopeful owners attempting to "score" the first uncirculated example. Briggs 1-A, with mintmark right of center and a reverse die crack left of QUAR. The strike is typical for the 1-A variety, with star centers of varying strength. The toning is pleasing, silver with underlying violet shades. Liberty has somewhat of a two-tone appearance with silver on the high points and more color in the protected areas. Stars 3-4 host a bit of crust, as does the reverse shield. The new owner of this piece will immediately be a contender for "King of the Hill," as numbers do not necessarily mean everything - at this level, only a in-person comparison with other high-grade specimens settles the argument, and, even then, disagreements may remain! From the Sunset Point collection, and housed in an old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Choice $825 New March 20! CAC Approval, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Choice For Grade, Pleasing and Attractive, Seated Appalachian Collection. Many $10 Indians at the MS61 grade level will be quite baggy and unattractive. Just the opposite is true here. At first glance, the bright frosty luster and sharp cartwheels suggest MS62/MS63 potential. Swirling the piece under a light source reveals a few abrasions in the upper right obverse but not distracting. Orange-gold patina covers both sides.

The New Hampshire Collection consignor decides to redirect his box of 20 collecting goals and brings this lovely proof quarter to market. 1869 proof strikes were limited to 600 pieces and are listed as Briggs 2-B in Larry's Encyclopedia. This example has been well preserved with near gem original surfaces. The mirrors are bright and reflective with peripheral rose gold decorating the untoned centers. Strike is absolutely hammered with high relief devices. The right obverse field has a few faint hairlines that limits the grade on a technical basis but with excellent eye appeal. CAC believed so and rewarded with a green bean. Housed in 2015 PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
