Choice $5450 New December 5!

Most surviving 1896-S quarters grade VF or lower, making this XF coin elusive and highly sought-after. This choice example retains a fair amount of steely luster that is a surprise and pleasing. Toning is intermixed olive-gray with peripheral deep blues and gold on obverse and reverse. Conservative grading appears to be at hand given the raised headband, bold wingtips and residual luster. Sure, everyone wants CAC approved examples these days but the total population in both EF grade is (1) one! Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This example was sent to CAC and did not pass as the toning is not uniform crusty gray that has become synonymous with CAC stickers. Those collectors waiting for a CAC approved EF may be waiting for years. This offering is awfully nice at the grade and would fit well in a higher grade circulated set.

Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Gem Original, Labelman87 Collection, Near Condition Census. This is one of the more significant pieces in the Labelman87 collection, a near-gem uncirculated example that approaches condition census. Its desirability is enhanced as a branch Mint issue, as most collectors of the period lived closer to the east coast and were satisfied with Philadelphia coins. The toning is brilliant with golden touches at the rims, and the surfaces are nearly perfect, apart from a few ticks hidden in Liberty's cap. The luster is uninterrupted and radiates a convincing cartwheel as the piece is tilted. PCGS has certified 12 finer coins, but the situation is more nuanced when quality for the grade is considered, and CAC has approved only four pieces in higher grades.

Original $195 New October 12! Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Original, Collector-Grade, Twin Lakes Collection.. The coin exhibits wear at the high points consistent with the grade and is medium toned with ocassional crust about the stars, legend, and date. All of the Barber coinage was struck at four different Mints - Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, and, toward the end of the series, at Denver as well. The New Orleans Mint was notorious for poorly struck coins in the Liberty Seated series, but these problems were largely resolved by 1892 with the introduction of Barber coinage. This piece is an excellent representation of the New Orleans Mint for the period, a welll-struck, original example that brings a tiny piece of New Orleans from the past to the present day.

Choice $5850 Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Choice Original, Labelman87 Collection, Semi-key. This is a much better O-mint issue in the Barber quarter series, with even the lowest graded coins valued at substantial premiums. This represents the final year of Barber quarter production at the New Orleans Mint, and the only O-mint coin in the series with a mintage of less than a million pieces. This particular example is evenly toned in medium shades of steel blue and violet, with light crust in a few of the reverse letters. The fields are nearly perfect as one would expect for the assigned grade. The strike is typical for the issue, and there is some weakness in the lower portion of the shield and surrounding feather detail. PCGS has graded a mere nine pieces numerically finer, and, with some of these no doubt representing resubmissions, this piece is a condition census candidate. A lovely coin and a rare opportunity, as these New Orleans pieces simply were not saved to the extent of their Philadelphia counterparts. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

Choice $195 Price Reduction 5/7/19 - Eric P. Newman Collection, Choice Original, Old Paper Toning, Accurately Graded, Kansas Collection. 1910 San Francisco strikes are more challenging than the 1909-S and the 1913-1915 S Mint issues that complete the series.

Green holder from the original Heritage November 2013 sale. Classic old paper envelope toning as found on a substantial portion of the Newman coins. A cool offering from the Kansas Collection.

Choice $1250 New November 30! Underrated Grade, Brilliant Silky Luster, Swirling Carwheels, Low PCGS Population. The Barber half dollar series is full of surprises including the 1911 San Francisco date. A scarce popular issue that is also underrated. Mintage is a substantial 1,272,000 piece but only twelve have been certified AU58 by PCGS. CoinFacts auction prices are well above the PCGS guide, so pleased consider this fact during a potential purchase evaluation. Silky luster and swirling cartwheels are instantly apparent during bright inspection. Faint peripheral gold is also seen under a light source. Well struck. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Gem $1450 New November 28! Creamy Frosty Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Gem Original Surfaces. What an attractive 1912-S Barber half dollar! This gem has managed to retain its creamy frosty luster and swirling cartwheels after being well preserved for over a century. A 10x loupe inspection revealed delicate mint frost across the fields and devices with just one field contact mark by star 12. This granular mint frost produces a unique type of luster that is best described as "creamy." Cartwheels are active and swirling under a light source. Strike is complete with high relief stars and complete lower reverse devices. Overall coloring is a faint gold which GFRC photography has amplified with some greenish tones. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. A special offering that I would enjoy owning in a personal collection.
