New October 12! Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Well Struck, Brilliant Surfaces, Collector Grade, Twin Lakes Collection.. Half dimes of this year all appear with a seemingly blundered date, as the engravers clearly had difficulty consistently crafting digit punches sized for the tiny workspace between the base of Liberty and the rim. This example, FS-302 RPD, with repunching of all digits, is no exception, and here the 5 is sized considerably larger than the 4. In contrast to the engraving, the strike is healthy with full star centers and deep relief of all devices and lettering. LIght olive toning covers both sides with hints of russet about stars 1-7. More great offerings from the Twin Lakes Collection.

A better-date Buffalo nickel perfect for a type set, this coin's design was the result of a complete overhaul of the nation's coinage in the early 20th century. The nickel's iconic Buffalo is in keeping with other Indian-themed coinage of the same period, such as the Indian cent and Indian gold pieces. This example exhibits russet streaks that blanket both sides over a even, gray pallete. A few hints of seaweed hue highlight protected areas of the obverse.

JR-6, Die Crack Through Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Old Album Toning, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal. The 1796 JR-6 die variety is distinctive and exhibits a heavy die crack through the date digits with all letters in LIBERTY well spaced. Sometimes referred to as the "hyphenated date" due to the bold die crack through the date digits. This example is in a perfect collector grade for type or date purposes. It also offers pleasing circulated cameo eye appeal resulting from years in an old album. The obverse fields are free of abrasions and toned a deep gun metal blue while main devices are lighter gray. The reverse exhibits a bold circulated cameo appearance with deep gray-gold fields highlighting the much lighter toned eagle and wreath. The strike is uniform and both sides retain complete border dentils with strong central devices. As for blemishes, there are two intersecting lines on the obverse that are visible in the GFRC images. Housed in PCGS Gen 3.0 (1990-1993) old green holder.

Huge O, Choice Original, Birmingham Collection. This is one of the better examples seen while working with the Liberty seated dime series. Most Huge O dimes comes with some type of problem and strictly problem free examples in EF or better grades are rare. So along comes this wonderful example from the Birmingham Collection. Accurately graded and very close to EF due to the lapped obverse die and well worn reverse from 1838. Surfaces are covered with strictly original and uniform gun metal gray patina with hints of blue and rose intermixed. Strike is bold validates this is a middle die state example since there is no die crack from (U)NITED to the rim. In terms of blemishes, there are a few fully toned over old lines on the obverse but given this piece's grade rarity, they don't bother me in the least and should not bother the buyer. Housed in old NGC holder with standard circular insert. As a serious student of the Liberty Seated dime series, I enjoy handling consignment dimes that bring a good balance of quality, rarity and eye appeal.

Original, Large O, Lapped Dies, Birmingham Collection.. A little background is necessary to understand the New Orleans 1840 Large O variety...both obverse and reverse dies were lapped reducing the amount of device details with the date punch nearly effaced. The reverse die is also well worn and cracked. So strikes are consistently weak. This example offers original surfaces covered with light gray/rose patina on obverse and even silver gray on reverse. Under bright light, this piece retains ample luster, especially on the reverse with some mild PL reflections on the obverse. GFRC images do not well represent this dime and in hand reviewing is suggested.

Double Die Reverse, Original Gun Metal Gray Patina, Early Die State, Typical Weak Strike, Accurately Graded, Indiana Collection. A spectacular doubled die error on the reverse of an 1872 dime was discovered by Dave Thomas during April 1999 and published in the Gobrecht Journal by Tom DeLorey in July 2003. The reverse die was hubbed twice with the second hubbing being rotated approximately 175 degrees from the initial hubbing. The importance of this doubled die error lead to its inclusion in the Top 100 Varieties set during 2004. This example, from the Indiana Collection, is perfectly original and so typical of the F-105 variety. Surfaces are covered with uniform gun metal gray patina. Strike is weak but so typical for F-105 examples. Nearly all will be found with flat or partial heads along with weakness in the upper reverse wheat grains. This piece is accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Yet another Liberty Seated die variety duplicate from the Indiana Collection. Also, a semi key date in the Seated Dime Top 100 Varieties set.

New September 6! Price Reduction September 9 2019. Rare Variety, Misplaced 5 in Base, Gem Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Rose-Gold and Aquamarine Toning, Tied for Finest Known, Indiana Collection. An exceptional 1875 F-106 offering that features a misplaced ball and lower loop of 5 digit in the base. Obverse die is also heavily clashed. The reverse has missing upper right bar at D(I)ME and the upper left bar of DI(M)E. This is a challenging variety to locate as careful attention is necessary to isolate the misplaced ball and loop of the 5 digit from the background shapes in the base. Dimes grading EF or better are the best candidates for cherry picking. No examples were reported between 1992 (first reported by Greer) and 2013. The Greer plate coin was sold into the Fortin reference collection during June 1995. Then during November 2013, another example apperared in the Eric P Newman/Col. Green Heritage sale that graded NGC MS66 CAC. A third example was located during July 2015 by GFRC which graded PCGS MS66 CAC and was sold into the Indiana Collection. Now that exceptional specimen is back on the market and is the plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. Fully struck with bold devices throughout obverse and reverse. Under a light source, satiny cartwheel luster is vibrant and so pleasing. Toning is intermixed rose-gold and aquamarine. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. An offering for the collector who wants the finest in his collection.

Exploring the Barber coinage series is enjoyable. One will discover some attractive values including this 1910 Denver strike.

The patina is thick and blocks a portion of the residual frosty luster. Strike is typical and grading is accurate for this naturally preserved example.

Special 20% Price Reduction - Choice Original, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

Better Date, Even Medium Gray Toning, Tiny Rim Filing, West Texas Collection. A key date in the Liberty Seated quarter series with mintage of 121,000. This is yet another issue with low survival rates and choice specimens being the anomaly. Most collectors end up purchasing a market acceptable example to fill that spot in a Dansco or Whitman album. When first evaluating this example, from the West Texas Collection, an Original quality rating was assigned and priced. The surfaces are toned an even medium gray that may not be strictly original but close enough to be graded by the TPGs. During a second inspection, a small rim filing was noted at 12:00 above Liberty's head. The filing is about 5 reeds long and the location might suggest a removed jewelry loop but I'm not convinced of that. My thought is the rim was initially filed but left at that as the color is uniform with the balance of the coin. Otherwise, this offering is quite acceptable with only two tiny rim scrapes to mention on the reverse. A decent offering of this difficult and expensive date. I've seen much worst in TPG holders.

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.

FUN Show Price Reduction, WB-1, Rare Small Date Obverse, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Golden-Brown Patina, Oregon Beaver Collection. One of the challenging die variety rarities in the Liberty Seated half dollar series that is listed in the Redbook and on major price guides. Bill Bugert, in his Federal Register series on Liberty Seated half dollars, indicates that, "the first two months mintage, January and February, are generally accepted to include the small date varieties (WB-1, WB-2) althought the initial 1842 delivery of those coins on February 28, 1842 included some coins dated 1841. The remaining months are of the medium date mintage." On the WB-1 Small Date variety, the reverse strike is weak with poorly defined left leg, arrow feathers and left/right claws. This characteristic is present on the Oregon Beaver specimen. On the offered example, fields are lightly mirrored and covered with a transparent skin of gray-gold patina. Surfaces are essentially blemish free at the assigned VF35 grade level with only a small mark by Liberty's foot being noted. Obverse strike is also weak resulting in overall grading being conservative. Based on wear, this example is a full EF40. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important opportunity for serious Liberty Seated half dollar collectors to acquire an R5 date and reverse pairing die variety.

New October 12! Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Lustrous, Brilliant, Twin Lakes Collection.. Representing the last year of the Morgan dollar, the 1921 almost stands as its own type, separated by nearly two decades from the last Morgans struck in 1904. Indeed, the original hubs were destroyed in 1910 and the engraver George Morgan had to recreate these for the 1921 issue. The 1921s thus exhibit shallower relief than the earlier coins. Other differences exist, and it is well worth comparing with a glass in hand. This example is brilliant with just a touch of golden toning in the right obverse field, lustrous and technically only limited by a few cheek ticks.

FUN Show Price Reduction! Near Gem Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Lovely Wheat Gold Patina, Fully Struck Accurately Graded, Ft. Lauderdale Collection . A wonderful 1881 San Francisco strike with pleasing satiny cartwheel luster. The wheat-gold coloring glows during bright light viewing as luster and cartwheel effects are quite pronounced. Strike is completely executed with all stars round and reverse eagle feathers deeply impressed. Accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval. I'm glad that the Ft. Lauderdale Collection consignor has moved into United States gold. His two offerings are well above average in quality and GFRC customers will find this piece impressive when viewed at a major show.
