Cleaned $1400 New June 28! Rare Philadelphia Strike, Blue Bullseye Toning, Reflective Surfaces, Net AU50 ANACS Grade, Under Construction Collection. One of the rare Civil War Philadelphia dates with a mintage of only 14,000 circulation strikes. At this point of the Civil War, silver bullion was scarce and little available for circulation strikes with the priority given to larger denomination Seated halves over half dimes, dimes and quarters. This example has been net graded by ANACS in the mid 1990s as AU50 UNC Details with Corroded-Cleaned on the holder. Frankly this designation appears to be a harsh as a careful 10x loupe revealed no corrosion. I agree with the cleaned designation as some faint hairlines can be seen during bright light viewing. This 1863 strike has been lightly cleaned and retoned with light rose center and surrounding blues that is consistent with old paper album toning. Housed in ANACS old white holder and accurate designated for its preservation state. From the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry.

Choice $800 New June 28! Near Gem Original for Grade, Well Defined Mintmark, Uniform Gun Metal Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Under Construction Collection. A near circulated gem example of the 1866 San Francisco F-101 die pairing with downward sloping date obverse and small thin S mintmarked reverse. Surfaces are blemish free and covered with uniform gun metal gray patina. Strike is consistent and above average for the date. What is there not to like about this wonderful 1866-S dime? As a reminder, this F-101 die pairing comes with very weak lower reverse and missing mintmark at times. These cases are often mislabeled by inexperienced dealers as the most expensive 1866 Philadelphia strikes but the downward sloping date is an immediately diagnostic for S mint strike. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. From the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry. A superior 1866-S dime that deserves special attention.

Choice $900 New June 28! Challenging Date, Choice Original Gray Toned Surfaces, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded, Under Construction Collection. Overall, 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. From the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry. Worth of a CAC attempt by the buyer as conservatively graded and so original.

Original $850 New June 28! Repunched 18 Digits, Original, Lustrous Surfaces, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Under Construction Collection. Mintage of 320,000. The F-101 die variety is easily attributed by repunching above the flag of the 1 digit and above the top loop of the 8 digit. Further attribution verification is seen with (S)TATES being completely broken. Reverse die was punched with a Small Weak S mintmark that is positioned left and high. This nice 1871 San Francisco strike retains much of its original mint luster but has probably been dipped given the untoned surfaces. Strike is essentially complete with only minor weakness at the top of Liberty's head holding back a full strike designation. Accurately graded as mint frost is easily seen inside the gown folds and within and surrounding the reverse wreath. Also, there are no blemishes worth mentioning. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. From the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry. A challenging date that should garner special attention.

Surfaces retain active luster under the golden brown toning that is fairly uniform across obverse and reverse. When viewing under a bright light, the surfaces offer a nice glow with gun metal blue on the obverse. Strike is better than average but still not complete due to weakness on Liberty's head. This choice original example is blemish free and should be sent to CAC by the buyer.

Study by Greer and Fortin confirmed the presence of only date repunching. Repunching is seen the upper ovals of the 8 and 9 digits. This example offers a hammered strike with minimal wear. Surfaces probably were dipped long ago followed by long storage in a paper album. The result is pretty rose-gold obverse toning with blues at the immediate obverse rim. PCGS grader appears to have net graded this piece as the wear is consistent with AU50 grade. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with edge view insert.

Locating any 1853 New Orleans dime in AU or better grade coupled with full strike is cause for celebration. This date frequenty comes with erratic strikes and problems at the EF and AU grade levels. 1853 dated dimes saw considerable circulation due to the planchet silver weight reduction in the southern United States. Choice surfaces, a hammered strike and pretty aquamarine toning are the key attributes of this lovely example. Head and hair curl details are deeply impressed along with rounded stars. Accurately graded with minimal wear. There is one toned over mark on Liberty's left facing arm that should be considered but not distracting. Housed in 2012 transition PCGS holder blue label and edge view insert. From the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry.

Let's open this description with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation given the tiny number of 1858-S dimes I've seen with choice surfaces. Wholesome and choice are two adjectives that come to mind when viewing this above average example. Wear is uniform with light gun metal gray and blue patina during in hand viewing. Under a bright light, the surfaces hold their color but with darker shades. I really like this example and please don't think too hard if in the market for this date. Obverse strike is complete with no blemishes whatsoever. Reverse is also entirely problem free though the wreath leaves are a tad weak.

Choice $4350 New June 27! Rare Civil War Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Medium Gray Patina, Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded - Under Construction Collection. An important offering that deserves special consideration by Liberty Seated dime date and mintmark set collectors. I've seen my share of 1860 New Orleans dimes since 1989 and most have one problem or another. The PCGS AU50 CAC example, in my personal set, took over a decade to locate against exacting standards for originality, strike and eye appeal. For GFRC customers with similar standards, then let me introduce this special example from the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry. Surfaces are perfectly original and never messed with. The PCGS holder is worn on the obverse and a bit hazy but the encased dime is definitely choice. Surfaces are essentially blemish free with an even layer of gun metal gray-blue patina that is lighter on the reverse. There are several toned over micro lines to the right of the corn ear mentioned for 100% completeness during 10x loupe inspection. Mintage is a tiny 40,000 with many lost in Civil War battlefields. Accurately graded. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. If you need an 1860-O upgrade for an advanced Seated dime date and mintmark set, then please consider this offering. Believe me, once in hand, the buyer will be thrilled. Call me if the hazy holder and obverse image bothers you as a verbal description is warranted.

Last year of the With Stars design hub usage with two pairs of dies shipped to San Francisco only. The Philadelphia mint was busy converting design hubs to the new Longacre/Paquet With Legend design hub and did not strike dime with the old With Stars design.

Choice $775 New June 27! Underrated Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal, Undergraded, Under Construction Collection. A no question full EF40 specimen of the underrated 1861 San Francisco date. Two Type 1 obverse die pair was employed for a mintage of 172,500. These obverse dies have the Anthony Paquet influenced design that is shallow relief and produced coins that were proned to rapid wear. Grading Type 1 obverse dimes can be difficult due to considerations for strike and rapid wear. PCGS really got this one wrong as I would grade a minimum of EF40 or better. Adding in the underrated nature of this Civil War date and the choice surfaces results in a very attractive proposition for an advanced collector of Liberty Seated dimes. Actually, this is one of the nicer example I've seen in years. Surfaces are blemish free other than a toned over micro line on the reverse between DIME and bow knot. Overall appearance is above averagte with circulated cameo contrasts. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with edge view insert.

When a quality set comes to market, the 1864-S date is typically well represented as nice original specimens can be had. This GFRC offered example is all there for the assigned PCGS EF40 grade. Surfaces are toned an even light gray with some golden hues under a light source. Strike is nearly complete with well defined STATES OF on the obverse; a typical problem area for some Civil War working dies. A close 10x loupe inspection revealed no blemishes to discuss.

Choice $675 New June 27! Small Thin S of 1861, Poorly Struck Date, Choice Original, Light Gray, Golden Hues, Conservative Grading, Under Construction Collection. 1865 San Francisco strikes are notorious for having flat heads. The worst case strikes for obverse weakness are those struck with Obverse 1 resulting in F-101 and F-102 die pairings. Given the weak strikes, the grading services have a difficult time with accurate grading. Since the default is to be conservative with strike versus true wear, this date is oftern conservatively graded as is the case here. Surfaces are essentially choice with light gray patina. There is a well toned faint blemish on the left facing breast that is mentioned for accuracy. Die erosion is immediately noted on the Small Thin S reverse that was left over from 1861, yes....1861. The denticles are completely effaced. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

There are always 1837 Philadelphia strikes on the market given first year of issue status and many being saved by collectors of that period. The challenge for 21st century collectors is locating a superior example for their type set or opening date for a full 114 piece date and mintmark set. This offerings should garner special attention due to the choice original surfaces that are covered by natural golden brown patina couple with considerable eye appeal. Strike is hammered with all horizontral shield lines being distinct. This is the first area that will show strike weakeness. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and accurately graded as there is minor wear on the left facing breast and on the horizontal shields lines. During bright light viewing, the patina melts exposing rich copper gold that glows from the remaining luster. This piece is close to being a gem on the GFRC quality rating scale except for a tiny line in the upper left obverse field and a blemish in the field area below DI(M)E.

The proofs were struck with Large Date obverse that was later reused for circulation strikes. During production, die cracks appear on the obverse. First die crack is seen on the leg moving to the center of the die. This example is the F-101a die state with residual repunching below the 7 digit in the date and the first seen die crack. Surfaces are strictly original with ample residual luster and rose-gold patina that offers some blues at the date. CAC review resulted in green bean approval. Housed in old NGC Fatty holder.

This example, from the Under Construction Liberty Seated Dime set on the www.seateddimevarieties.com Open Registry, offers original surfaces covered with light gray patina.

Mintage is only 31,300 with most surviving examples being in lower circulated grades. This date is prohibitively rare in Mint State with two examples known. At the mid circulate grade level, this lovely VF20 has much to offer a serious collector. Surfaces are choice with no distracting blemishes. Toning is a light gray that allows the major devices to nicely contract with the surrounding fields. Strike is typical. There are a few very faint micro lines on the reverse between ONE and DIME that will appear if the coin is perfectly angled under a bright light. This is mentioned for 100% accuracy as the micro lines are not evident during in hand viewing. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with edge view insert.

Challenging Date, Light Glossy Gray, Old Cleaning, Massachusetts Collection. 1859 San Francisco strikes have a small mintage of 60,000 and a very low survival rate choice as nearly all examples entered circulation during the busy California gold rush era. This example is typical of many seen with light gray surfaces from a long ago cleaning. This rare date is slowly retoning with darker patina surrounding the stars. Accurately graded as VF25 with a few tiny blemishes that are of no consequence given the retoning surfaces. From the "Bunker Collection" that was sold about 2005 on eBay and now being offered by the Massachusetts Collection consignor.

Is this 1866 dime really graded EF40? When viewing any coin for the first time, I tried to focus initially on the coin, define my own grade and then verifying with the TPG label. In the case of this crusty original 1866 Philadelphia strike, my first assessment was EF45 and I stand by that grade. When EF40 or EF45, the 1866 date is a rarity in all grades being and an R5+ at the EF/AU level according to Greer. Mintage is only 8,725.

Choice $1875 New June 10! Choice Original, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. 1885 San Francisco strikes remain underrated and under appreciated. This date is just not availble in the market place and many that do appear are problematic. GFRC is so excited to have two quality examples in stock a one time. Let's focus on this PCGS F15 example as one of the nicest seen in circulated grade. Surfaces are toned a natural gray-brown with no significant blemishes to mention. Yes, there are two tiny field chatter marks on the right obverse of no consequence. PCGS grading is conservative as I would be comfortable with a VF20 grade given the strong scroll edges, crisp lettering and reverse wreath details. Pricing this date is difficult. The PCGS price guide understates value due to a lack of auction records to make adjustments. And nearly all auction records are for example with surface problems. The asking price is my best estimate of value diven the choice nature of the offering. If it does not sell at this level, then offers will be take. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder and an important offering from the AuburnNY Accordian Collection.

While 1856 Small Date dimes are quite common in all grades, the Large Date counterpart is available in circulated grades but becomes challenging in high AU grades and rare at the mint state level. PCGS has graded a total of fifteen examples at the mint state level with six being MS62. Whenever a high grade 1856 Large Date dime enters the market, I pay attention. The offered example, which resides in an AU58 PCGS holder, was purchased raw at a September 4, 1991 Stacks sale as Lot 231 where it was described as Choice BU. Strike is absolutely hammered with deeply impressed devices throughout the obverse and reverse. This is a no question mint state example which was used as the F-101 plate coin for Liberty Seated dime web-book. This piece remained in a raw state of preservation until being submitted once during 2014 where it was graded AU58. After that, I simply placed this one back in the bank vault for further action. Now that I am starting to sell a portion of the Seated dime die variety reference set, this one happened to be in the first group pulled from the bank vault. It has been priced at the mint state level and if not sold by Denver ANA, then will be cracked out and resubmitted. I've seen the crack out specialists secure mint state grades for less attractive examples of this date and variety. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder and a pure gem at the currently assigned grade level.

It was one of the first Seated dimes purchased from Bob Levi's collection during August 1989. Bob ran Maine Gold & Silver in the South Portland, Maine area. I would frequent his coin shop as just a few blocks away from Fairchild Semiconductor office. Once Bob learned that I was starting to build a Seated dime date and mintmark set, he offered coins from his set. This 1858-S dime is one of my first purchases. This piece is perfect original with ebony-gray patina and considerable eye appeal. Many F-103 strikes come with weak heads and gown lines but also weak lower reverse wreath leaves. This example is typical with PCGS understanding the strike and assigning an accurate EF40 grade. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. A Fortin plate coin.

A most important offering as this 1874 San Francisco strike is the Greer Plate Coin for the Small Thin S mintmark variety. With incremental research, I later separated the early and later Small Thin S strikes into F-102 and F-102a die states. This example is an F-102a struck with heavily rusted obverse die and badly eroded and cracked reverse die. The device details appear to be quite weak, which they are. However, this lovely example is perfectly original with residual mint frost and some luster. If one carefully inspects the Greer Guidebook and the place coin image, there is a small dark spot in the upper right obverse field while this offered piece lacks that spot. The spot was removed at some point between 1991 and June 1993, when I purchased this one directly from Brian. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with edge insert.

Gem $4250 New June 9! Gem Original, Bold Watery Mirrors, Classic Rose-Gold Light Toning, Eye Appeal, LaSalle Collection. A stunning 1880 Proof Cameo Trade dollar that is worthy of consideration by selective collectors. Freshly graded by the consignor and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. CAC approval occurred during early June. This piece is completely fresh to market after being in bank vault storage for several decades. Surfaces provide plenty of watery texture and reflections under a light source. An 10x loupe was used towards checking for any stray hairlines and none were found. This offering is an outright gem from the LaSalle Collection. Photographing large denomination proof strikes is not a GFRC strength. Therefore images provide a basic idea of the coloring and appearance but in hand viewing is absolutely warranted to appreciate the originality and proof cameo surfaces.

Choice $235 New June 8! Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Pleasing Surfaces, Gansu Collection. Second to last year of issue for the Peace dollar design with a mintage of 954,057 after the design was not struck since 1928. The Silver Purchase Act of June 18, 1934 mandated that the Treasury Department acquire silver until the market price of silver was raised to $1.2929. This figure was considered to be the standard value of silver for many years. An additional requirement of the same act stated that the Treasury must purchase silver until holdings were equal to one third of the value of the Treasury holdings of gold. So nearly purchased silver from western miners was acquired to strike Peace silver dollars in 1934 and 1935. This mint state example offers satiny cartwheel luster and pleasing surfaces. From the Gansu Collection, a collection assembled by Gerry Fortin for Chinese client during 2011-2013 timeframe. Now being repatriated to United States collectors.

It is such a pleasure handling early date mint state Seated quarters when the surfaces are consistent with this 1844 example. This piece is perfectly original with obvious validation characteristics. Obverse toning is a transparent light gray that allows ample luster to radiate when viewed under a light source. There is mottled ebony and gold flake toning at the rims that can only be applied by nature. Strike is hammered on the obverse with only a trace of weakness on the eagles lower left leg and feathers. And finally, eye is all there if the buyer understands the appearance of mint state silver. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. I like this 1844 quarter and believe you will also.

Choice $335 New June 2! Type II/II, Choice Original, Frosty Silver Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. The change to new Seated quarter obverse and reverse design hubs started during 1859 with the transition completed in 1861. The obverse engraving is the product of James Longacre with help from Paquet. Mintage for the 1861 date is high but locating choice original example in high AU and mint state grounds will take patience. This new GFRC example is perfectly original without a doubt. Frosty have natural mint frost and the toning is a light silver gray with hints of gold at the rims. Strike is hammered with every device detail being deeply impressed. Definitely a choice offering that is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Fans of strictly original silver coins should pay attention here.

The 1936 half dollar has the second lowest mintage (3901 coins) of proofs struck during the 1936 to 2000 era, with only the 1936 Washington quarter having a slightly lower mintage. Scarce in any grade and rare in Superb Gem condition along with being the rarest proof  Walking Liberty half dollar. This gem example offers watery mirrors and hammered strike. There is a faint amount of reverse toning that has been over emphasized by GFRC images. Speaking of the GFRC images, they leave much to be desired with the coin in hand being significantly more attractive and pleasing. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval.
