The Newtown Liberty Seated Dime Collection Sale - Part 1



GFRC Online Auctions - PDF Catalog Archives


Greetings and welcome to GFRC No Buyer's Fee Auction Sales portal. Our online auction application takes a simplified approach for conducting noteworthy auctions without buyer's fees. The one commission rate approach for integrated auction and price list sales leads to a carefree and fun selling event.

GFRC wraps up its 2022 auction schedule on a truly high note as the first installment of the Newtown Liberty Seated Dime Collection is brought to market.

Superior collections are assembled over a period of years by astute and passionate collectors. Aaron Heintz is one of those individuals who has found a keen passion for Liberty Seated coinage given his top rated dime and half dollar sets. Aaron and I spoke months ago about the possibility of selling his dime set for raising numismatic capital to further upgrade the half dollar collection. Attempting to build two Mint State Liberty Seated coinage sets in parallel is incredibly challenging from a time and funding perspective. GFRC has been active in locating premium candidates for both collections. Now many of the Liberty Seated dimes sold into the Newtown Collection are returning to the office for this auction sale event.

The Newtown Collection presents an accurate study of Liberty Seated dime date rarity. Some dates are available in high grade Mint State with CAC approval while others are extreme rarities at that level. For the latter, it may take several decades before a specimen is released from the most advanced collections.

One of the important highlights of the Newtown Seated Dime collection are the No Stars pieces. The 1837 Large Date and Small Date specimens are incredibly original with MS66 and MS66+ certified grades and CAC approval. The 1838-O dime is equally stunning and in the condition census with Eugene Garner pedigree.

The No Drapery and With Stars design types also contains grade rarities including an 1839-O F-104a certified PCGS MS66+(ex. Branch Mint Collection), an 1856-S F-101 certified PCGS MS62 (ex. Fortin Collection), a superb gem 1857-O Medium O graded NGC MS67 (ex. James Stack), and rare 1858-S PCGS MS63 specimen (ex. Tom Bender).

It is with incredible pride that GFRC Online Auctions presents the first of two auction sale events in early November and late Janaury for the Newtown Collection. I hope that you will take the time to carefully inspect and enjoy Aaron's incredible accomplishment in the below gallery which spans the No Stars through final With Stars issue conducted in San Francisco during 1860. The second gallery, with the balance of the With Legend design hub dates, will be added shortly.

The entire Newtown Collection will be available for lot viewing at the Whitman Baltimore show. Aaron Heintz will be present on Thursday and Friday to personally conduct the lot viewing along with sharing his acquisition stories. Please come visit with a proud collector on October 27-28 at the Baltimore Convention Center and GFRC booth 818.

Hopefully, inspecting the forthcoming images will be as much fun as bidding in the auction given the continuing GFRC photography improvements and overall consignment quality. Just imagine what GFRC could do for your coins when the time comes to sell....

About GFRC

GFRC has rapidly grown as a leading retailer of quality Early Silver Type, U.S. Gold, and now expanding into early 20th Century denominations. Our business model is consignment centric supporting more than 150 consignors who actively conduct collection duplicate divestments. Selling CAC approved coins is our primary mission and specialty.

Founded during early 2014, GFRC has been in continuous operation since that time. Our website garners some of the highest industry rankings due to a dedicated numismatic community that constantly visits the many online applications. Unlike other dealers, we offer a complete Sales and Auction Archive for complete transparency. The GFRC Open Set Registry provides collectors with a friendly venue for posting their collections. The GFRC Gallery showcases the past and present offerings of our top consignors.

GFRC is a well known fixture on the national coin show circuit. We exhibit at Whitman Baltimore, Winter and Summer FUN, Central States, and the Summer ANA World's Fair of Money. You will find GFRC at smaller regional shows consistent with our summer New England presence and winter snowbird status in Florida.


The Unique GFRC Integrated Service Approach

With the introduction of the GFRC's Online Auction service, clients have multiple sale approaches for their consigned coins.

- Regular Fixed Priced List Sales

- Online Auction Sales (Minimum consignment lot size and/or value requirement)

- A lot not selling at its Online Auction reserve price will automatically post to the price list at the reserve price.

- GFRC will not return consigned lots that do not meet reserves at Online Auctions due to the standard four month minimum consignment length requirement as part of GFRC regular policy. Requests for earlier returns of auction lots will be subject to 5% handling fee.


Online Auction Sale Terms & Conditions

GFRC auction sale Terms and Conditions are available by clicking here or the Terms & Conditions banner located at the top of this page.

GFRC Online Auctions - The Online Auction Table

Following is a screen capture of the Online auction table. The format looks similar to a regular GFRC For Sale page price list table.

Please look carefully as there are three different auction statuses illustrated. The first example is an 1913-S Buffalo nickel that is queued for an upcoming auction that opens on October 12. The TPG number is available with a link back to the TPG website for checking certification. Reserves and high bids will be listed in the second to right column. The rightmost column communicates the lot's status and allows bidding.

On the second line, the 1917-D Standing Liberty quarter is currently available for bidding as an active auction. Bidding is accomplished by clicking on the shopping bag icon.

The final line in the table illustrates an 1825 Capped Bust half dollar that was part of a prior auction that is now closed. That lot did not meet the reserve.


GFRC Online Auctions - Three Auction Statuses Example


GFRC Online Auctions - Using the Bidding Screen

The bidding screen is unique to that lot and presents a full description and TPG serial number. Lots are identified by TPG serial numbers or with GFRC inventory number for raw coins.
