Choice HOLD
$625
Choice for Draped 1/2 Cent Type, Chocolate Brown Coloring, Satiny Luster. Adding early copper to the GFRC price list is proving to be an enjoyable exercise. This 1806 Small 6, No Stems example brings rich chocolate coloring and smooth fields as its main highlights. Reverse die is heavily eroded leading to weakness at the legend. Typical verdigris surrounds the wreath leaves. A solid example that would fill the Draped Bust slot in a type set. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with Small 6, No Stems attribution on the label.

Small 6, No Stems
AU50
2231516
Cleaned $350 Draped Bust Type, Old Clean, Retoned, Southern Texas Collection. A piece of numismatic history from an era of TPG company proliferation and questionable grading standards. Exhibit A is this 1806 Small 6, No Stem half cent with bold device details. A 10x loupe inspection promptly revealed hairlines and faint porosity along with a retoned coloring that is close to natural for those without sufficient early copper experience. Housed in old National Numismatic Certification holder with straight AU50 grade. Priced accordingly.

C-1 Choice $3200 Capped Bust Type, Satiny Luster, Choice Unabraded Surfaces, CAC Pop 1, Osprey Collection. The 1810 Capped Bust date is scarce in Mint State with nearly all being found with a Brown designation. This new Osprey Collection offering is the lone CAC approved example at the MS62 grade level. Satiny luster is prevalent on both sides given the worn dies. Coloring is even brown with embedded orange-gold on the upper right obverse. Most notable are the unabraded fields that are thoroughly pleasing under a 10x loupe. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. The label lists Cohen-1 attribution and Furnace Run Collection pedigree.

S-223 Original $800 1/000, Obverse Cuds, Smooth Planchet, Even Brown, Some Verdigris, Osprey Collection. Electoral challenges date back to the early days of the United States. During 1801, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr were tied in the electoral college during Presidential election. We know who ultimately won! This 1/000 Sheldon-223 was struck that year. Fairly graded with a smooth planchet. Overall coloring is natural brown with some shade variations on the obverse that my camera insists on capturing. Obverse cud at LIBE(RT)Y is bold. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Label reads 1/000 S-223. From the Osprey Collection.

$295
New April 10! Small Date, Newcomb-9, Doubled AME(R)ICA, Choice Original, Coronet Head Type, Low Population. The Newcomb-9 die pairing can be easily diagnosed by a double punched R in AMERICA. The Randall Hoard result in many Mint State examples reaching the market. This AU50 new purchase is thoroughly pleasing with smooth unabraded surfaces and a bold strike. Both sides are present a natural brown coloring. This offering is at an attractive price point for type and the variety. Mint States example will easily move pricing in the four figures.

VF25 PCGS
36782252
N-1 Choice $190 New March 22! 1819/8, Low PCGS Population, Dark Brown Patina. The 1819/8 overdate is a major variety in the Coronet Head large cent series. The remnants of an earlier 8 digit is easily seen without a loupe as the lower 9 digit loop is connected to the upper. PCGS populations are surprisingly low with single digits through all grades up to AU55. GFRC is pleased to be offering this choice VF25 example with thick brown patina. Surfaces are essentially free of defects given the amount of time in circulation. Light verdigris surrounds the reverse wreath. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder and attractively priced.

Under a light source, ample satiny has a nice "glow". Ideal as an AU grade level Coronet Head type coin. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view. There is light holder haze on the upper obverse that has impacted the image quality in that location.

NGC
1745302001
N-7 Choice $925 Large Letters Reverse, Well Struck, Choice Surfaces, Ideal Coronet Head Type Coin. Adding early U.S. copper to the price list requires well above average eye appeal to be at hand. In other words, I must like an early copper piece to the point of desire for my own collection. That is a high bar and the case with this enchanting 1831 large cent. Though having a Brown designation, the reverse is close to full Red while the obverse has orange and violet shades. Strike is essentially complete with only a few stars lacking full definition. Surfaces are free of abrasions. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the mid 1990s timeframe with pristine reverse hologram. CAC approval is warranted. The NGC label captures the attribution with "Large Letters, N-7".
