An important GFRC offering from the Kansas Collection with Norweb Collection pedigree. This piece was part of the Norweb Collection auctioned by Bowers and Merena on October 12-14, 1997 as lot 500. I've seen many 1858 San Francisco strike in my years as a collector and dealer and must admit that this Norweb example is one of the finest circulated seen. Surfaces are perfectly original and covered with iridescent gray-rose patina without any blemishes. Strike is typical with rounded stars but some weakness at the gown line and lower reverse wreath leaves.

Choice $875 New October 11! Rare Civil War Date, Choice Original, Thick Olive Gray Patina, Blemish Free, Really VG08. A challenging Civil War date issue with small mintage of 14,000 pieces. Checking the PCGS population report reveals a total of 60 pieces in all grades from G4 through MS66. That total is evenly divided between 29 is all circulated grades and another 31 in mint state. Some simple math reveals a 0.5% survival rate for those examples being gradeable by PCGS. Definitely not many and the basis for circulated examples now bringing four figures. The 1863 date stands out as being very challenging in lower circulated grades also. This offering is ideal for filling that hole in a Liberty Seated dime date and mintmark set. Conservatively graded as Good 6 with original surfaces and olive gray patina throughout obverse and reverse. Rims are bold and well raises and surfaces are blemish free. My grading would be a full Very Good 8 given the sharp rims and residual device details. Conservatively graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. This offering has a CoinFacts record; Heritage August 2015 at $881.

Under a light source, this Small Date dime offers creamy frosty luster with pale gold coloring. Strike is so typical for the date with weakly struck stars in the left field and on the left wreath.

The doubling on #2 is located on the outer left edge of (O)NE along with strong doubling on the outer edges of the maple leaves and within the veins of the leaves. This example is perfectly original and so choice at the assigned grade level. Both sides offer uninterrupted frosty cartwheel luster. The obverse is toned in golden brown shades while the reverse is essentially untoned. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. The PCGS label reads, "DDR FS-801 (FS-005.3)" The F-105 "web-book" plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors.

Cleaned $395 New October 10! High Grade AU, Strictly Original Reverse, Cleaned Obverse, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Sunset Point Collection. At first glance, this 1873 San Francisco struck Seated quarter appears to be a high grade surviving example. My assigned grade would be AU55. However, the obverse has been lightly cleaned resulting in bright frosty luster than is inconsistent with the natural cartwheel luster on the reverse. The reverse is no question original with a faint rose-gold patina and entirely blemish free. Mint frost surrounds the obverse stars regardless of its current preservation state. A duplicate from the Sunset Point Collection that would be an ideal value purchase by someone assembling a Dansco or Whitman bookshelf collection.

New October 9! Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Gorgeous Aquamarine-Blue Toning, Hammer Strike, Conservative Grading, Montana Collection. 10% Price Reduction October 8, 2018. The Montana Collection is new to the GFRC community and presents a top quality array of early silver type coins. All 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. This only Barber coin from the Montana Collection is this amazing 1894-S Barber quarter that is an outright gem. Incredible satiny cartwheel luster tickles the eyes when viewed under a light source. Obverse toning is about 90% transparent leading to vibrant luster that accentuates aquamarine, sky blue, rose and gold colors. The colors are intermixed rather than banded and probably the result of being exposed to a felt or velvet material in a coin cabinet. The reverse patina is thicker and less transparent to the underlying luster but still the cartwheel effect is active. Conservatively graded and housed in old PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. A better early date in the Barber quarter series and worthy of a sophisticated collection. The current PCGS guide price is $1250 and this piece is heads and shoulders above those selling recently in the high three figures at auction.

New October 9! Second Year Capped Bust Issue, Choice Original, Gray-Gold Patina, Typical Strike, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Conservatively Graded, Montana Collection. 14% Price Reduction October 8, 2018. The Montana Collection is new to the GFRC community and presents a top quality array of early silver type coins. All 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. Divestment time has come and luckily GFRC was selected to handle the consignment. Offered next is a gorgeous 1808 O-109a Capped Bust half with perfectly original surfaces. One quick look with a 10x loupe confirms that the satiny cartwheel luster originates from unmolested silver surfaces. The O-109 prime die state documents heavily eroded dies and obverse cracking and clashing. A semi-transparent layer of gray-gold patina covers both obverse and reverse. Under a bright light, the gold shifts to orange rose. Grading appears a bit conservative (AU50) given the available cartwheel luster. Early capped bust halves are difficult to grade due to inconsistent strikes and I believe this one is full AU53 at a minimum. There is a faint and ancient micro line to the left of ear that is mentioned for 100% accuracy. The Montana Collection consignor has not pursued CAC review, therefore any unsold coins will go to CAC after the Baltimore show. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert.

WB-7, Early Die State, Thick Crusty Gray-Rose Patina, Heavily Rusted Reverse, Conservatively Graded, PCGS Old Green Holder with Blue Label, Jim Poston Consignment. 10% Price Reduction October 7, 2018 - Lots to discuss concerning this 1843-O WB-7 half dollar offering from Jim Poston. Letís start with the die variety being WB-7 with heavily rusted reverse that has been lightly lapped along with a lapped obverse. Device features are reduced resulting in conservative grading at assigned EF40 level. I would grade this strictly original example as full EF45. Surfaces are covered with thick gray-rose patina and are blemish free. Then there is the PCGS holder. This is definitely an early 1990s old green holder with bar code. However the label is full blue color with no signs of paper fading or transitioning from original green color. This label looks to be have printed on original blue paper stock and not green. Could this holder be worth more than the housed coin? There is much to consider for this 1843-O Seated half from Jim Poston consignment.

Don't let the absence of a CAC sticker deter you! Brilliant frosty cartwheel luster interacts well with copper gold and blue coloring, under a light source, and produces a most pleasing viewing experience. Stating it from a different perspective.... this Jim Poston offering has substantial eye appeal and will please the selective collector. Strike is essentially complete with deeply impressed facial details and hair curls. Unfortunately, stars 12 and 13 lack connected centrils else the term "hammered" would have been used. I really like this half and might as well issue a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. By the way, repunching above the 6 and below the 1 digit is very boldly defined for the WB-9 variety.

Market Acceptable $1500 New October 7! Semi-Key Date, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Blue-Rose Patina, Well Struck, Eye Appeal, New Jersey Collection of Liberty Seated Halves. Very scarce date with low mintage of only 77,130 and low survival rate due to silver bullion arbitrage that took place in the United States from 1850 until a lighter silver planchet weight was introduced during early 1853. Most Liberty Seated half dollar collections are missing this 1852 Philadelphia date and now could be the time to purchase an eye appealing AU example at a value price. Just back from PCGS with an AU Details opinion that was quite disappointing. There are some wispy hairlines in the right obverse field under a halogen light but that is the extent of what I can find for mechanical cleaning. This piece offers vibrant satiny cartwheel luster on both sides with the reverse being 100% original and unmolested. The reverse is stunning under a light source with center rose and peripheral blues. Strike is fully executed with deeply impressed reverse devices. Bottomline, this scarce 1852 half probably saw a light cleaning to the obverse while the reverse was never touched. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Gem $2750 New October 6! BF-1 R5, Rare Die Marriage, Only Mint State Example Known, Heavily Polished Fields, Conservative Grading, Denver Collection. Ex. Grey Soldier Collection. An incredible 1875 Carson City struck double dime for our consideration. Frankly, I believe this piece is under graded at the assigned MS62 level. What did NGC see to deduct technical points? Both obverse and reverse have heavy die polish lines that could have been misinterpreted as being from an old wipe. This is not the case as the die polish lines are parallel and become quite heavy on the reverse and were confirmed under a stereo microscope. The variety is also significant. Per Brunner and Frost in their online reference entitled Double Dimes, The United States Twent-cent Piece, the BF-1 die marriage was first reported in May 2013 with just a few examples known. BF-1 represents the only use of this reverse die, which cracked severely almost immediately after beginning to strike coins. The authors consider the die marriage to be quite rare, representing only about 1% of all surviving 1875-CC coins and assigned an R-5 rarity rating. The offered example is from an early strike with polished dies and limited reverse die cracks but consistent with BF-1 diagnostics. Under bright light, the darker teal coloring melts into light cobalt blue and gold on the obverse and mostly aquamarine and gold on the reverse. Housed in new large font label NGC holder with CAC approval. A gem quality offering from the Denver Collection.

Original $1700 New October 6! Rare No Obverse Die Crack, Typical Washed Out Luster, Original Surfaces, Gray, Rose and Gold Patina, Well Struck, Susquehanna Collection. One must do research when considering this lovely 1869 San Francisco struck quarter. Mintage for the date is only 76,000 with few survivors in AU or better. The 1869-S date is well known for its bold obverse die cracks that encircle the obverse. Briggs indicates that specimens without any die cracks are very rare. This is indeed the case for this AU55 example as the obverse was struck by a fresh die with light mint frost surrounding the stars. Briggs then goes on to explain that AU and mint state examples will be found with pale, subdued and washed out luster. This is the situation with this offering from the Susquehanna Collection. There is wear only on the highest points; breast and lower leg along with the eagle's neck feathers. Strike is excellent and well above average for the date. Surfaces are toned an even light gray with embedded rose and gold hues. Why is this grade rarity quarter being offered raw? Yes, PCGS will not certify the piece as being original. Rather, two attempts have resulted in cleaned designations. I've carefully examined this quarter under a halogen light, worst case for detecting hairlines, and have found no signs of a mechanical cleaning. The luster is pale and washed out as described by Briggs and surely a red flag for the PCGS graders who are not experienced with this date in an early die state. PCGS population report indicates two graded at AU50, three graded at AU55 and three graded at AU58. There are few auction records by which to price this piece. During 2017, Legend sold a PCGS AU55 with obverse die cracks and weaker obverse strike for $3700. A not too attractive NGC AU55 with heavy obverse die cracks brought $2765 at Heritage Auction back in 2012. There are no AU53s graded either and no auctions records for the two AU50 pieces graded by PCGS. Therefore, we are opening the sale of this special offering at $1700 with in hand viewing recommended. From the Susquehanna Collection of old Bowers and Ruddy purchases dating back to the 1970s.

Choice $1250 New October 3! F-101a, Large Depression Below Shield and on Maple Leaf, Choice Original, Crusty Gray-Rose Patina, Blemish Free, Conservatively Graded, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. In his Complete Guide to Liberty Seated Dimes, Greer indicates that two examples of Variety 101a were seen with a large depression at the lower left of the shield. To date, no explanation has been offered for this anomaly but a filled die with foreign substance could be assumed. I have listed two F-101a specimens in the Seated Dime die variety "web-book." The first is the Greer plate coin (VF30) with obverse depression. A second example, grading EF45, surfaced during 2014 with same obverse depression below the shield and as on the Greer variety plate coin. However, a closer examination of the reverse also revealed a second depression on maple leaf in the lower left wreath directly below (D)IME. Therefore there are two points on the obverse and reverse dies where a foreign material was positioned. Surfaces are perfectly natural and choice without blemishes. A crusty gray-rose patina covers both sides. The particular example dates back to the Brian Greer Guidebook on Liberty Seated Dimes as published by DLRC during 1992. This dime was used for the No. 101 macro plate image on Page 109. Purchased directly from Geer during November 1996 and residing in the Fortin collection since that time.

Strike is complete with all stars well rounded and fully impressed eagle devices. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert and CAC approval. A top quality Liberty Seated dollar offering for the selective collector.

Choice $1750 New September 29! Low Mintage Philadelphia Date, Dazzling Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Choice Original Surfaces, Fully Struck, Clashed Dies, Accurately Graded . Mintage for the 1888 date is a low 12,000 pieces with most examples being proof-like or with highly reflective luster. This gorgeous example bucks the trend and offers frosty original surfaces. Mint frost is evident throughout the obverse and reverse fields and within the recesses of the major devices. Bright light viewing is most pleasing with dazzling carthweel effects as one swirls the half dollar to rotate the cartwheels like spokes on a moving tire. Surfaces are no question original and without any hairlines whatsoever. Many of the MS64s, on the market, that are deeply toned will sometimes hide hairlines. This example has a light gold skin with darker shades at the periphery. The transparent toning exposure every conceivable blemish under a light source. A careful 10c loupe review revealed two obverse bagmarks that are grade limiting else this piece would reside in an MS65 holder. This piece is therefore fairly graded but with substantial eye appeal.

Consignor Price Reduction - GFRC is incredibly pleased to be offering one of the 500 Scott Restrikes but more importantly, the CSA reverse is choice original uncirculated. Both the CSA Reverse and obverse exhibt frosty cartwheel luster. For numismatic curiosity, the base coin's obverse was studied and easily attributed as an early die state CSA W-13 (Bisecting Date Crack) without signs of the die crack. The date position on CSA W-13 is unique and lends itself to a straightforward attribution. Offered here is an Scott Restrike with a choice original mint state CSA reverse coupled with a CSA W-13 base coin that was well preserved for years due to a reverse mount. At some point, the obverse mount was removed and the tooling remnants are most difficult to see on the PCGS TruView image. CSA Reverse strike is hammered with deeply impressed details. Reverse surface is choice with each die nuance available under a 10x loupe. Original silver mint frost is evident with mottled gray toning. Freshly graded by PCGS and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. This Scott Restrike has been off the market since the early 1980s with no auction records. After careful consideration, an $8500 asking price has been established that balances the choice reverse preservation state, the CSA W-13 base coin and the obverse removed mount. An important historical aritfact that is worthy of careful consideration. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with Genuine UNC Details - Damage certification.

Choice $1300 New September 23! Challenging Civil War San Francisco Date, Choice Original, Crusty Gray Patina, Typical Obverse Strike, Conservatively Graded, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. 1865 San Francisco dimes are notorious for being poorly struck at Liberty's head. This is the case for nearlly 98% of coinage struck with Obverse 1 (F-101, F-102 varieties) and the vast majority of survivors in the market. This choice original F-102 example has been in the Gerry Fortin reference collection over a decade and now time to sell. This piece has been freshly graded with CAC approval. The heavy TPG and CAC lifting is down and ready for a turnkey purchase. Seriously, the surfaces are toned classic gray with plenty of relief on the major devices. I grade this piece a full EF40 and believe strike weakness was punished by the PCGS grader. A late die state example with eroded reverse denticles. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and worthy of special consideration by those building an advanced collection.

Original $425 New September 21! Low Level Date, Original Surfaces, Mirrored Obverse Fields, Frosty Cartwheel Luster Reverse, Accurately Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. 1873 With Arrows coinage is popular as type but also a treasure trove for die variety collectors. Date and arrows were punched separately leading to enough placement difference for die variety analysis. The offered example is the F-114 Low Date die variety with date punched close to the denticles. Arrows are also noticeably lower than normal. What makes this particular 1873 WA F-114 particularly interesting are the different die surface differences between obverse and reverse. Obverse fields are mirrored and produce an obvious cameo effect when viewed under a light source. Resulting luster is reflective. Then we check the reverse and find a frosty die finish throughout the fields and devices. This side of the coin produces frosty cartwheel luster as a contrast to the obverse. Obverse is covered with faint gray skin. Strike is nearly complete with only the top of Liberty's head and the upper left reverse wheat grains being weak; so typical of the With Legend hub design. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. A cool offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.

Underrated Date, Original Surfaces, Reflective Luster, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Gray-Gold Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. 1848 Philadelphia strikes have long been an underrated date. Mintage of 451,500 would indicate a fairly large number of survivors but that is not the case. PCGS has certified only twelve (12) in all VF grades and nineteen (19) in combined EF40 and EF45. At the AU58 grade level, there are only six (6). Definitely information to consider when examing this lovely F-101a example that offers lightly mirrored fields and reflective luster as is often seen for the variety. Gray-gold patina covers both sides and shifts to blues, rose and gold under a light source. Strike is absolutely hammered with high relief stars and bold reverse wreath devices. The F-101a later die state die cracks are easily seen with a 10x loupe. Accurately graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Original $925 New September 18! First Year Issue, Original Light Gray-Gold Patina, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Sunset Point Collection. First year of design and denomination issue, during the California gold rush, with mintage of 396,000. Survival rate is low due to heavy circulation in commerce and for jewelry making. Survivors are either damaged or not original coins as most were mishandled among the mining communities. Prioblem free examples in any grades are a prize for current day collectors. This new offering is a duplicate from the Sunset Point Collection. This survivor is strictly original with residual frosty luster under the natural gray-gold patina. Mint frosty surrounds most stars and many letters in the reverse legend. Reverse die is cracked consistent with the Briggs 1-A attribution. Grading is conservative as I would be full EF45 based on wear and remaining luster. I suspect that net grading is a play due to a mark on Liberty's mouth. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. An important surviving 1855-S Seated quarter for the advanced collector of Liberty Seated quarters.

Surfaces are well worn and toned a light gray with mottled ebony toning highlights on both sides. Obverse rim is bold and elevated with weak denticles. Reverse rim has survived well during circulation with no wear into QUAR DOL, through close. The Good 4 assigned grade appears to be conservative as Good 6 is more warranted.
