Presents The First Auction Sale of 2022 - A Two Session Extravaganza

Newtown Collection's Liberty Seated Numismatic Auction Sale



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 is pleased to be opening its Winter 2022 auction schedule for advanced early type collectors and serious fans of the Liberty Seated Half Dollar series. After hosting the successful Branch Mint Collection Sale (realized $243,000), Tenafly Collection sales (realized $104,000), and Tennessee Collection sale (realized $124,000), GFRC is starting the 2022 calendar year with a double session Newtown Collection auction event.

The Newtwon Collection's Liberty Seated Numismatic Auction Sale includes 103 lots with reserves totaling approximately $180,000. Liberty Seated halves dominate the sale including most of the major varieties (1840 (O), 1846 6/Horizontal 6, 1847/6, 1849 Dramatically Doubled Date, 1876 Large/Small Date, and the rare 1877/6). An amazing 1874-CC PCGS AU55 CAC half and a near complete 1861-O Liberty Seated Half Dollar die variety set are additional reasons to carefully review the Newtown offerings.

This auction is much more than Liberty Seated halves however. Newtown has released 1864 and 1865 type Indian cents and Small and Large Motto 2 cents pieces, again all with CAC approval. Newtown and the Sooner Collection combine for an exciting Seated half dime selection. The Liberty Seated dime segment features Newtown duplicates and incremental plate coins from Fortin's The Definitive Resoure for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors online reference. Not to be forgotten, a small Liberty Seated quarter group is headlined by an 1853-O PCGS MS63 specimen, one of only two approved by CAC. The other also happens to be found on the GFRC price list.

This sale is CAC treasure trove with the majority being awarded the coveted green bean.

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.
