Auction Lot Viewing - Summer Whitman Baltimore Show- June 13 - 15, 2024

 

Welcome to the third GFRC Online Auctions sales event of 2024 featuring two premium set offerings from long term clients. This event is being billed at the Specialty Sets Auction Sale when considering the distinctly unique nature of each offering. For those who enjoy the Liberty Seated dime series, the JBN Collection arrives with a 30-piece lot release from his wide ranging Liberty Seated coinage holdings. This is a circulated lot with a notable mix of better and common dates, with nearly all being CAC approved. Our long term client has been actively shopping at the GFRC price lists and at our regular auctions. The time has come to release the Seated dime portion of his collection towards raising capital for incremental upgrading in other denomination.

The second Specialty Set is from a long time husband and wife collecting team. Our favorite clients, known as the Cumberland County Collection "CCC", have been actively assembling a top rated Walking Liberty half dollar set with CAC approval as a fixed requirement. This set is practically complete with all dates and mintmarks present other than the 1921-S key date. The collecting goal was Mint State as should be readily evident upon reviewing the lots in the following online catalog. Proofs issues from 1936 onward are present along with the 1916-D Repunched Mintmark and the 1946 Double Die Reserve. Fans of Gold CAC approved coins and those in PCGS Gen 2.0 Doily holders will also have an opportunity to augment their collections at this auction event.

GFRC Online Auctions will continue to offer three payment lay-a-ways for auction winnings over $3000 moving forward. To take advantage of this payment option, bidders must registered with Gerry prior to the auction open and confirm their lay-a-way requirement. Those that don't confirm prior to the auction will not be afforded this privilege. Please contact me at Gerry@seateddimevarieties.com or 207-329-9957.

The GFRC Online Auctions application was designed with simplicity for bidders given the No Buyer's Fee policy. Bidders do not need to contemplate the Buyer's Fee percentage when placing bids. Every bidder is free to bid what they wish to pay for a lot. This fact become measurably important during the final hour of the auction sale whereby bidders can stay focused on determining their auction ending bidding strategy without factoring in a Buyer's Fee.

The GFRC Online Auctions platform has become yet another divestment option for collectors along with the regular price list consignments. I've seen the GFRC community become incrementally comfortable with taking holdings onto an auction platform for upside bidding potential and increased prices realized. Again, with a simplistic No Buyer's Fee structure, collectors can easily calculate their proceeds using the final bid and GFRC regular commission rates. All lots that do not meet reserves are posted on the 30 Day Price List after auction end along with the well known Collectors Corner numismatic marketplace. Our goal is to promptly sell you coins across multiple marketing channels.

Good luck with bidding.

Thank-you, Gerry

Medium O, Near-Gem Original, JBN Collection A marvelous 1841 New Orleans struck Liberty Seated dime that has been buried in the Fortin Reference Collection since mid 1995 and sold into the JBN Collection. Previously part of the Brian Greer collection. This F-103 Medium O example is completely struck with frosty luster and unabraded surfaces. Early New Orleans silver coinage was heavily circulated with few choice survivors for modern day collectors. This specimen is a near-gem and will please the new owner for years to come.

Gem
Gem Original, JBN Collection A picture is worth a thousand words, and a quick glance at the images reveals an exceptionally eye-appealing example. Rich blue-green rim toning surrounds the russet-gray figure of Liberty, while the reverse exhibits copper fields leading toward more intensely colored rims. All coins are on a continuum, and this example would place highly within a group of CAC-approved, AU50-graded Seated dimes. The CAC population is 67 coins, with five in the AU band and four at the Mint State level. The collector Terry Brand became fascinated with the "Little Orphan Annie" dime in the 1980s and began assembling one of the great Liberty Seated hoards of all time, which ended up consisting of over 600 examples of the 1844 dime. It is certain that few pieces in the Brand group possessed the eye appeal of the present coin. The CAC price guide value is $2,100. Ex. GFRC. Housed in a PCGS Gen 3.0 (1990-1993) green label holder with CAC approval. Reserve: $2750 Auction Opens

Choice
Choice Original, Difficult Grade, Key With Stars Date, Accurately Graded, JBN Collection The 1846 is well-known as a key issue in the Seated dime series, with a low mintage of 31,300 pieces. This example is nicely struck, with distinct star points and strong leaf detail. Deeper steel-gray centers are surrounded by cloudy copper color at the rims, and the aesthetic appeal is compelling. F-101, the business strike dies, with a defect in 6. CAC notes 46 pieces in all grades, with only three coins finer than the present example. With the CAC price guide nearly doubling between EF45 and AU50, this is the best example one can hope to acquire without venturing into five-figure range. The CAC guide value is $5,250. Ex. Woodlands and Newtown Collections. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval. Reserve: $5650 Auction Opens

Gem Original, JBN Collection. A well-known connoisseur of Liberty Seated coinage demands that pieces in his collection “dance and sing” every time they are examined, and there is no question that the present example has done its share of performing over the years. A bold crescent of electric blue patina covers the right stars, while russet color fills the rims on both sides. The eye appeal is immediately evident, and previously sold for $755 at the November 2023 GFRC Online Auction event. F-105 with a high date, and a die line connecting the right bow and the branch. The CAC population is 40 coins across all grades. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder with CAC approval. Reserve: $520 Auction Opens

Choice Original, JBN Collection. Coin gray fields host gold patina at the stars and legend, while light dirt inhabits the protected areas of the shield and wreath. F-103, with a downward sloping date and medium centered mintmark. Strike is typical, with softness at the bow knot. Seated dime production during the early years of the San Francisco Mint was minimal, with 60,000 pieces struck in 1856. The CAC census notes 23 pieces in all grades, with six finer. This is a perfect collector coin – well detailed, original, and scarce. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval. Ex Newtown and Dallas Collections. Reserve: $2500 Auction Opens

The strike is typical, with a soft head and bow. F-101, the only variety, with a downward sloping date. CAC reports 27 pieces in all grades, with ten examples finder. The CAC value is $1,650.

Well struck for the issue. 1869-S dimes were struck with two die pairs and can be easily attributed by the Small Thin S versus Small Weak S mintmark. Choice surfaces add to the eye appeal.

Choice
Choice Original, JBN Collection. 1870-S dated dimes have a reported mintage of only 50,000 from a single die pair. This date is one of the great challenges facing a new Seated dime set collector as few choice examples are known. CAC population is a tiny 12 examples with 8 being in MS64/MS65. A hoard of six Mint State pieces was reported by noted Seated dealer, Jim O'Donnell, when I was collecting in the 1990s. Steely frosted luster is quite brilliant along with active cartwheels. The reverse eye appeal is particularly compelling. Strike is typical for the issue with a partial head and wreath devices. Please consider this lot carefully as it could be years before another AU58 reaching the marketplace. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder. Reserve: $3000 Auction Opens

Choice
Key Early Date, Choice Original, Cumberland County Collection The 1923-S Walking Liberty half dollar is much more difficult to locate in high grade than its mintage of 2.1 million pieces would suggest. Strong commercial demand ensured most of the coins struck circulated wildy. Weak strikes and excessive surface marks are the norm for this issue. As a result, this date has a low CAC approval population stands at 137 pieces with 20 at the MS64 grade level and 16 finer. Few CAC approved MS64 records can be found in auction records validating the scarcity of this date in near-gem Mint State. Surfaces are a creamy white and emit satiny cartwheel luster under a light source. Strike is better than average with complete upper skirt lines and an outlined hand. However there is no definition of the thumb. The right obverse field has three micro blemishes mentioned for accuracy. Overall, an accurately graded example of a key date with pleasing eye appeal. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval. Given the scarcity of CAC approved examples at auction, this offering is an important opportunity for the advanced collector. Please note that the color gradient on the GFRC images is not as pronounced on the coin as seen on the images. Previously from the Twin Lakes Collection and listed in the GFRC Sales Archive.

There are certain coins that have superior eye appeal and this piece is one of those. Frosty luster and smooth pristine fields dominate the bright light viewing experience. Strike is typical with a partial head and upper skirt lines. The strike weakness is not holding back the Gem quality rating as all other criteria are superior.

Gem Original, Cumberland County Collection. With a mintage of 4,252,400, the 1936-D is readily available in Mint State grades through MS66. However, the PCGS population drops dramatically at MS66+ (67) and MS67 (55). This "CCC" release is entirely frosted with faint golden shades at the peripheries. Strike is typical with the upper vertical skirt lines being incomplete. A 10x review revealed random die polish lines on the obverse and continuous mint bloom across the surfaces. The CDN CAC piece guide lists MS66 at $1140 with a dramatic jump to $5000 at the next full grade. We believe the reserve price is quite competitive for this lovely gem.
