Choice $3150 New February 20! Misplaced 1 on Rim, Bullseye Rainbow Toning, Choice Original Surfaces, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. Serious eye appeal is at hand with this 1850 Briggs 1-A quarter featuring a misplaced 1 digit on the rim. Mintage is limited is 190,800 but many were lost to silver arbitrage that finally ended during 1853. This surviving example is Immensely lustrous. Reflective luster couples with radial toning leads to a special viewing experience. Rich rose, blue and peripheral cover the obverse while the reverse features orange to rose-violet at the core with a wide circle of cobalt-blue around and pale green edges. Overall strike is well executed. Fairly graded and housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. Part of a complete set of Liberty Seated quarters offered by the Sunset Point Collection.

Choice $4000 New February 20! Near Gem Original, Sunset Point Collection. 1851 Philadelphia strikes are a semi-scarce issue with small mintage of only 160,000 coins. The surviving population is similar to that of the 1851-O, which is generally considered to be more rare. Many of the 1851 Philadelphia and New Orleans strikes were probably exported to Europe for melting. On this Briggs 1-A survivor, many vertical lines extend upward into the horizontal lines on the reverse shield. Strike is complete and sharp. Under alight source, brilliant reflective luster tickles the eyes. A light, mint-caused grease mark crosses Liberty's outstretched shin. Attractive nonetheless, with flashy surfaces and mint-fresh appeal. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s.

Original $12000 New February 20! Rare New Orleans Date, Reflective White Luster, Faint Peripheral Gold, Original Surfaces, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. The 1852 date is New Orleans mint rarity 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. The Sunset Point Collection example offers white reflective luster with almond-gold at the peripheries. Strike is typical for the date with weakness at the upper obverse and lower reverse claws and arrow feathers. Obverse fields has wispy hairlines though mint frost is readily available on both sides. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert.

A special note to the GFRC community is in order concerning a certain gorgeous 1854 Arrows quarter from the Sunset Point Collection. JUST BUY IT NOW is the recommendation for either a mint state type set or a Liberty Seated date set. I'm thoroughly enjoying mirrored fields and resulting reflective cartwheels during description writing. Vertical die polish lines, on the obverse, are evident with 10x loupe. Both sides are covered with a transparent rose-gold skin that adds to the viewing delight. The reverse toning is more intense than the obverse.

Original $3500 New February 20! Condition Rarity, Satiny Luster, Faint Gold Coloring, Hammered Strike, Net Graded, Sunset Point Collection. The 1856 San Francisco Seated quarter date is semi-scarce in low, circulated grades, but quickly accelerates into a condition-rarity at the AU grade level. Mint State examples are extremely scarce therefore date and mintmark set collection must search for the best AU specimens possible. Contained with the Sunset Point Collection is a high grade AU example with hammered strike. Satiny cartwheel luster and deeply struck devices interact well for considerable eye appeal. Please remember that I am describing an 1856-S quarter.... This piece has been net graded by PCGS as so rare at the grade level. Surfaces are AU55 based on limited wear. The obverse contains field hairlines that resulted for an old wipe. Only three are graded AU50 at PCGS. Fairly graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Choice $2950 New February 20! Civil War Strike, Near Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. 1864 Seated quarter production slowed as the Civil War ran on. Mintage for the year amounted to 93,600 pieces. When compared to 1863 mintage and pricing structure, the 1864 date presents a compelling value. The Sunset Point Collection example is brilliant white with frosty cartwheel luster. Actually, the luster is more than brilliant and closer to intense under a light source. Strike is hammered with large bold stars and deeply impressed devices. Both obverse and reverse dies are clashed. Abrasions are to a minimum and consistent with the assigned grade level. Overall, a high grade mint state example with intense luster and few marks. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s.

Original $12500 New February 20! Lowest Mintage San Francisco Date, Frosty Luster, Original Surfaces, Near Complete Strike, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. 1864 brought a tiny mintage of 20,000 at the San Francisco mint resulting in a Civil War era rarity. The 1864-S date has the smallest mintage of any Seated Liberty quarter struck at the western mint. This date is a rarity in mint state with few known therefore this AU58 graded example should garner substantial attention. The Sunset Point Collection example is strictly original with sparkling frosty luster and decent cartwheels under a light source. Surfaces are covered with a light gold skin on both sides. Strike is essentially complete with full reverse devices and only the right obverse stars exhibiting some weakness. That strike weakness is consistent with the finest known Eliasberg NGC MS68 example. The fields are remarkably free of any marks or abrasions. PCGS population is one in AU55 and two at the AU58 level as a reference. An accurately graded Liberty Seated quarter rarity that should garner substantial attention in the GFRC display cases. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert.

Like many Philadelphia Seated quarter dates from the Civil War and Reconstruction period, 1870 brought a limited of mintage of 86,400 pieces. In mint state, most 1870 survivors will be found at the MS61 or MS62 grade level. This attractive specimen is sharply struck. Frosty luster is consistent with the assigned grade level. A faint tan-gold patina covers both sides with additional darker speckles on the obverse. Worthy of consideration as few are available at this grade level. Housed in 2012 transitional PCGS blue label holder and edge view insert. Part of a complete set of Liberty Seated quarters offered by the Sunset Point Collection.

Original $4250 New February 20! Key San Francisco Date, Near Choice Original Surfaces, Steely Gray Patina, Residual Luster, Typical Strike, Golden Harvest Collection. Ex. Eugene Gardner Collection. One of the key San Francisco dates in the Liberty Seated quarter series with a tiny mintage of 30,900. Most surviving examples, when found, will be in lower circulated graded. This EF40 graded example offers the Eugene Gardner pedigree. PCGS has only graded four examples at EF40 and another four at EF45 as a testament to the rarity of this date. Surfaces are strictly original with light gray base patina on both sides. The left reverse has an additional crusty film that further validates the no question originality. Accurately graded with bold devices and some residual luster during bright light inspection. There are no abrasions to discuss other than tiny chatter in the lower shield. A well preserved specimen that is housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s. An important duplicate offering from the Golden Harvest Collection.

Mirrored fields and old time album ring toning are the highlights of this wonderful 1867 Seated dollar. In hand coloring is mostly aquamarine and gray on the obverse and mostly rose-gold on the reverse. Viewing this offering under a light source is where all the fun is! The obverse transitions from a faint rose center to aquamarine ring at the stars followed by yellow gold into the denticles. The reverse toning is thick and remains consistent with additional light. Strike is essentially complete. There is an ancient line in the lower shield that is completely toned over and requires mention. This line probably accounts for the assigned MS61 grade. Fairly graded and housed in old white ANACS holder. A splendid offering from the Golden Harvest Collection.

New February 19! Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Thick Mint Frosty, Choice Original, Completely Struck, Net Graded, Golden Harvest Collection. When was the last time that you saw an 1850-O Liberty Seated quarter with brilliant frosty cartwheel luster that was 100% natural? Then add in a full strike? This offering is absolutely exception for strike and choice original surfaces. The obverse die rust is visible with micro details. Every tiny rust pit can be seen on Liberty and the stars. The reverse die was better maintained and exhibits no signs of rust; just a hammered strike. So why the assigned MS61 grade with CAC approval? There is one line in the upper right obverse field that holds this piece back from a higher mint state grade. Without that line, this 1850-O quarter should grade MS63. CAC agreed and recognized this piece, regardless of the obverse line, with a green bean. Without the line, it would be a Gold CAC approval. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view and CAC approval. A great offering from the Golden Harvest Collection.

New February 19! Rare San Francisco Date Choice, Choice Original Surfaces, Light Gray Patina, Traces of Luster, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded, Golden Harvest Collection. A low mintage San Francisco date that has proven to be very elusive in choice original preservation states. Mintage was limited to 96,000 pieces followed by acutely low survival rate. As a result, CAC approval in all grades is an anemic fourteen pieces. Please consider that point for a moment. This example, from the Golden Harvest Collection, is strictly original with uniform light gray patina and no abrasions. Under a light source, traces of original luster are evident. Strike is typical for the date. Grading in accurate. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and worthy of a CAC approval attempt. I believe this example has a reasonable chance for approval.

Mintage for 1851 New Orleans strikes is a low 88,000 with some examples probably ending up in European melting pots due to silver arbitrage during the 1850 through early 1853 timeframe. Survival rates are low with PCGS population report showing four in VF30, two in VF35 and nine graded EF40. That is far from a substantial amount given 33 years of TPG grading. On two VF30 examples have been approved at CAC. This offering has to be the finest graded at the VF30 level and is worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Why? Let's start with gorgeous residual steely luster on both sides. Fields are toned aquamarine gray with a dash of peripheral gold. Bright light performance is superior and must be experience in hand to be appreciated. Strike is typical for the 1851-O date. Does a fully struck example exist? This is a blemish free example other than one ancient reverse field divot by the E in UNITED that is of no consequence.

Later V-2 strikes will exhibit a heavily rusted obverse die and should be graded by the reverse. This is exactly the case for the currently offered 1838-O V-2. Surfaces are covered with a thick crusty gray patina that validate the no question originality. Reverse wear is limited indicating conservative grading at the assigned VF30 level. Obverse strike is typical for worn V-2 dies. Many letters in the scroll are partially seen due to strike and not weak. Lower obverse gown line and base are also weakly detailed.

Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s.

A light pewter-aquamarine patina covers the obverse while the toning on the reverse is thicker and approaches the GFRC crusty designation. The obverse has bold reflective cartwheel luster under a light source consistent with a mint state piece. Reverse luster is subdued due to the thick toning. Strike is complete with high relief obverse devices and stars. As far as abrasions, all I could find was one tiny line in the right obverse field at a special bright light viewing angle. No other dealer in the industry would make mention of this line but at GFRC we are committed to accuracy. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and CAC approval.

Mintage for the 1883 Philadelphia date is 14,400 with a more well balanced ratio between surviving examples in mint state and circulated pieces. By 1883, collectors probably stopped hoarding these low mintage dates and let the year's mintage circulated freely. This survivor is no question original with thick crusty deep gray patina.

New February 10! Rarest Philadelphia Business Strike, Partially Mirrored Fields, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Business Strike Dies, Choice Original Surfaces, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Golden Harvest Collection. The 1886 Philadelphia date has a tiny business strike mintage of 5,000 piece and is the rarest Philly issue in the Liberty Seated quarter series. Identifying circulation strikes as compared to proof issues is quite challenging as both were struck with polished dies or using polished planchets. The 1886 business strike can be attributed by two important diagnostics; die polish lines in the lower reverse shield and obverse stars having well defined centril. I'm convinced that this offering, from the Golden Harvest Collection, is indeed a business strict due to die polish lines in the reverse shield. PCGS certification as such is also another valication. A choice original example with naturally reflective fields under a light source. Surfaces are essentially untoned with a touch of color at the lower obverse. Strike is hammered with high relief devices, especially all stars and their points. Accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval.Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

New February 7! Gem Original, Incredible Bullseye Toning, Unparalleled Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded, Well Struck, Port Matilda Collection. Ex. Montana Collection and now being consigned by the Port Matilda Collection. When the Montana Collection made its GFRC debut, a broad array of top quality early silver type coins were added to inventory. All Montana Collection coins were purchased from two sources during the past ten years; Aspen Park Rare Coins and HLRC. Both dealers are well known for offering top quality coins. GFRC is so fortunate to have been chosen to handle divestment. I'm in love with this gem 1838 Reeded Edge half with bullseye toning that is a piece of art. Even though priced at double the PCGS price guide, I'm still issuing a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation and once in hand, you will know why. If not so busy loading coins on the price list, I take a break to enjoy the interplay of steely cartwheel luster with the bullseye toning. Let's start with the obverse; an internal rose circle is outlined by a thin ring of aquamarine which also surrounds the primary device. Immediately outside the center ring is a transparent golden film that surrounds the stars. Bright light viewing is amazing. Now the reverse; circular sky blue toning covers the eagle and immediate fields. This area is nicely framed by a burnt gold ring that surrounds the legend. Strike is completed executed on the reverse and center obverse. Those pesky stars in the right field lack connected centrils. Surfaces are entirely blemish free. A truly incredible offering for those that want special eye candy in their collections and are not afraid to pay the premium.

Center rose and peripheral blues are consistent on both sides. Under a bright light, the obverse shifts to sky blue at the stars. The reverse adds a thin golden arc at the periphery along with blues and a rose center. A really eye appealing example of a difficult to locate choice in mint state.

Prices move up quickly into four figures. This example offers a bold strike and little if any wear and could be seen as an AU58. The fields and devices are reflective enough to suggest some type of physical enhancement. Luster is brilliant and uniformly white. Overall, an attractive example for fans of dipped white type coins.

Near Choice Original, White Frosty Luster, Active Cartwheels, Complete Strike, Fairly Graded, Sunset Point Collection. 1844 New Orleans strikes have a mintage of 740,000 but a low survival rate due to heavy circulation in the deep United Sates south. In mint state, this date is very scarce. PCGS has only graded three pieces at MS 62 and another six at MS63. Options for collectors at the lower mint state grades is limited. This original example, from the Sunset Point Collection, warrants consideration by collectors seeking a nice mint state example with old time eye appeal. Mint frost surround the legends, stars and devices. As a result, the cartwheel luster has an obvious frosty texture. Surfaces are untoned suggesting this piece saw a quick dip before being submitted to PCGS. Strike is complete with full stars and deeply impressed facial details and hair curls. Same for the reverse with bold feathers, claws and arrow feathers. There are a few field abrasions consistent with the grade but none needing mention.

Regardless of a mintage of 368,000, 1847 New Orleans strikes become rare in AU or better. Heavy melting for silver bullion content is a plausible explanation. This date is also known for chronic weak obverse strike as I have yet to see a fully struck specimen. The Sunset Point Collection example is worthy of very special consideration given the AU53 grade level and original surfaces. Steely luster is immediately evident during bright light inspection along with peripheral gold toning. Luster is somewhee between reflective and steely with fields that are textured and not mirrored. Strike is so typical for the date with partial head details and stars 7 through 10 lacking centrils along with some reverse weakness at the eagle's left facing leg and claws. PCGS population indicates seventeen in all AU grade and only six mint state examples. At the AU53 grade level, there are four certified. A fairly priced offering that is frankly an excellent value in today's market. If just ten collectors jump into Liberty Seated quarter collecting, there is insufficient supply to support the demand with prices needing to climbg.

Challenging In Mint State, Mirrored Fields, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Heavily Rusted Obverse, Completely Struck, Choice Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. The 1850-O is a surprisingly scarce issue in Mint State despite a respectable (by early O-mint standards) mintage of 412,000 pieces. Most of these coins were either heavily circulated or melted. Typically struck for the issue, the stars are a little soft on the obverse and heavy die rust shows over the obverse devices. Both sides display a thin coating of silver-gray patina, otherwise the fields are lightly mirrored. Pre-1853 Seated quarters from New Orleans are scarcer than their Philadelphia counterparts, and the 1850-O is especially rare in Mint State. This golden-toned MS63 example is among the finest-known. A quick check of auction records, for this date, revealed that most mint state survivors will have similar golden toning bands. PCGS population report indicates seven at the MS63 level with only one finer. Luster is reflective and the strike is sharp. Liberty's figure shows moderate die rust consistent for the Briggs 1-A die pairing.

Choice $2100 New January 29! Civil War Date, Rich Copper Gold Patina, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Completely Struck, Near Gem Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. 1863 brought a precipitous decline in the mintage of Liberty Seated quarters as the Civil War ran on and took its toll on Union commerce. In Mint State, this date is not particularly rare and only scarce. The collector's challenge is locating a near gem or full gem original specimen. This lovely PCGS MS64 graded example deserves consideration. A thick layer of copper-gold patina covers both sides and validates the strict originality. Under the toning is considerable mint frost that produces active luster under a light source. A careful 10x loupe inspection revealed no abrasions whatsoever. Strike is complete with high relief stars and deeply impressed devices. Overall, an accurately graded Civil War survivor that is perfectly original with lots of luster and no marks. The asking price is also fair and consistent with overall quality. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s.

New January 29! Original, Sunset Point Collection. Generally considered the rarest date in the Seated quarter series, the 1870-CC has an impressively low mintage of only 8,340 pieces. Counterfeits are known of this issue, the pressure is so great and the economic imperative so compelling. Close examination of this piece reveals that it was most likely struck from standard coin silver and not pure Comstock Lode silver, which means the surfaces are non-porous, as one would expect from coins struck from unannealed silver. Also, there are no mentionable planchet flaws on either side as often seen. There are, however, numerous small to medium sized abrasions from contact with other coins in the channels of commerce. Perhaps the most noticeable of these are a pair of reeding marks in the left obverse field by star 5. Light brilliantish-lilac color overall, there is a bit of pale golden around the margins. Evenly worn over the highpoints. This is a highly collectible example of this important, initial-year Carson City issue Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

New January 29! Watery Mirrors, Choice Original Surfaces, Reflective White Cartwheel Luster, Typical Strike, Fairly Graded, Sunset Point Collection. When first examining this 1875 quarter, one would conclude it is a proof strike. Why? I believe this piece was struck with a highly polished planchet rather than a circulation strike planchet. Fields on both sides are highly mirrored with watery texture under a bright light. A close 10x loupe inspect did not find die polish lines which indicates the planchet is the reason for the proof fields and not an over polished die. Strike is typical for a business strike with frosty devices and many stars lacking connected centrils. Grading is accurate due to mild obverse field abrasions.

Original $6500 New January 28! Key Seated Quarter New Orleans Date, Original Surfaces, Olive-Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. The mintage for 1849-O New Orleans strikes is unrecorded with Briggs estimating a mintage of 16,000 pieces. Few example ever reach the marketplace since surviving population is so low. Nearly all examples are held in collections and only a divestment event brings about a fresh offering. This example is fresh to GFRC inventory and is a near choice original offering. Olive-gray patina covers both sides during in hand viewing. Adding a light source reveals steely fields and residual luster. Toning shifts to rose in the fields and the base light olive-gray maintained on the devices. Strike is typical for the 1849-O date. The left field stars are fully struck while those in the right field lack connected centrils. Strike weakness is also present on the top of Liberty's head and the gown line. This weakness must be considered when grading. The reverse is well struck with complete eagle feathers in both wings and also full claw details. Wear is seen on the lower right facing wing and consistent with an EF40/EF45 grade level. A full Choice quality rating would have been assigned except for a rim mark by star 5. That mark is ancient and toned consistent with the rest of the coin. Accurately graded from a net perspective with device details being closed to EF45. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. An important offering from the Saw Mill Run Collection that warrants detailed inspection and consideration. Once this offering goes off the market, there are few available EF40 graded pieces to replace it.

29400204

Original $1950 New January 28! Challenging New Orleans Issue, Original Gray, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. The 1855-O date is infrequently encountered in the marketplace due to a mintage of 176,000 and a very low survival rate. The 1855-O survival rate is similar to that of the 1849-O in circulated grades but priced at a fraction of the cost. PCGS population report shows only twelve combined in both EF grades. This EF40 graded survivor has a bold strike on both sides. All stars have connected centrils and Liberty's lower leg is fully rounded. Unfortunately, the head details are weak and so consistent with near every example seen. Reverse strike is bold with deeply impressed claws and arrow feathers. Original surfaces are toned a light gray with some dirty gold at the peripheries. There is one line in the right obverse field that requires mention. Fairly graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. An important offering from the Saw Mill Run Collection.

Original $1850 New January 28! Challenging San Francisco Issue, Original Gray Patina, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. 1859 San Francisco strikes are well respect by Liberty Seated quarter collectors due to no known mint state examples and just a handful at the AU grade level. Mintage is a low 80,000 pieces with all entering circulation for West Coast commerce. Surviving AU examples are an immediately five figure price tag. Availability increases at the VF and EF grade levels with pricing becoming affordable for date and mintmark set collectors. This example, from the Saw Mill Run Collection is a original specimen with pleasing surfaces. Lighter gray surfaces are uniformly toned with some darker coloring at the peripheries. Strike is typical with Liberty's head lacking full details and several stars lacking connected centrils. A careful 10x loupe inspection reveal no abrasions worthy of mention. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Original $5250 New January 28! Key Seated Quarter San Francisco Date, Original Surfaces, Light Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Saw Mill Run Collection. 1864 San Francisco strikes are recognized as one of the Liberty Seated quarter key dates. Few examples ever reach market above the VF level. PCGS has graded a total of eleven pieces in combined EF40 and EF45 grades. In AU, this date is already very rare with three pieces certified. GFRC is most excited to be offering an EF40 graded example from the Saw Mill Collection. This is an original example with classic gray patina that collectors strive to locate. Centers are toned a lighter gray with the peripheries having darker coloring. Strike is well executed for Type II/II hub design, especially within the lower reverse with full claws and arrow feathers. At first quick inspection, my thought was CAC approval since the coloring and eye appeal are consistent with approved Seated quarters at the EF40 grade level. Careful inspection with a 10x loupe revealed a darker toning streak from Liberty's left facing shoulder and across the neck. This areas has the characteristics of being in contact with a rubber band or other foreign materal that has impacted the surface. Accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. One must remember that rare Liberty Seated quarter key dates are what they are.... There are so few graded that waiting for a CAC approved EF example could take a decade. This offering is so close to regular CAC approved eye appeal and warrants special attention.
