Choice New Price
Price Reduction! Scarce Die Variety, Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Rose, Gold and Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. 1827 brought the last year of open collar Capped Bust dime production. 1827 mintage exceeded one million with 13 different die pairng from nine obverses and ten reverse dies. The JR-13 die pairing results from single usage of obverse and reverse die. Example can be located in the lower circulated grades but finding quality AU and mintage specimens will take patience. GFRC is pleased to be offering this CAC approval example that is accurately graded at the AU55 grade level. Obverse is nicely detailed with satiny cartwheel luster that swirls across peripheral sky blues and rose gray center. Reverse is toned a uniform copper gold with a blue arc at the extreme rims. Strike is consistent with that stated in the Davis, Logan, McCloskey reference; obverse is well struck while the reverse will have weak denticles over STATES OF. Accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval.

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.

Market Acceptable New Price
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.

Seated 50C 1842O Seated 1842-O
Small Date, Rev 1839
Original New Price
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.
Seated 50C 1854O Seated 1854-O

Choice New Price
Consignor Buy-Out/Price Reduction! Choice Original, Transparent Gray-Gold Patina, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded. 1854 New Orleans struck Seated halves are typically found with bold heavy strikes including halo'ing of the stars. This offering falls into that category with a hammered strike and considerable mint frost in the protected areas that include gown folds, shield lines and eagle feathers. The result is a thick frosty cartwheel luster when viewed under a light source. Surrounds are covered with a dirty gray-gold skin that validates the strict originality. A careful 10x loupe inspection revealed no blemishes whatsoever and a few reverse die cracks that were difficult to match with those in the Bugert Federal Register. Housed in 2015 Gen 6.0 PCGS holder.

Blemishes are limited to a few ancient obverse micro lines that are of no consequence. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with MPD WB-102 listed on the label. Another great offering from the Upstate New York Collection.

Union Issue
AU50 raw
Cleaned New Price
New March 30! Price Reduction December 9, 2019. Union Administration, W-1 Die Pairing, Brilliant Surfaces, Cleaned, Typical Strike, R6 Rarity. . The W-1 die pairing produced the initial Union Administration strikes during January 1861. The following month, mint authority transferred to the State of Louisiana. Though the total Union mintage is estimated to be 330,00 by Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert, Union strikes are rarities in today's market. This offering is one of the few handled by GFRC. There is a lack of published research that explains the difficulty in locating Union strikes as compared to Louisiana and CSA counterparts. However, a personal conversation with a high level mint employee produced the theory that most pieces were exported to Europe during early 1861 for Confederate States weapons purchases. This example has bold AU details, a sharp scroll, and reverse eagle feathers. Strike is typical with weakness at the gown line and eagle legs and claws. This piece has seen a mechanics cleaning with faint hairlines throughout the obverse and reverse. Regardless, the eye appeal remains decent. Since Union strikes are so difficult to locate and under strong collector demand, this example would be an ideal filler in a complete 1861-O die variety set.

Don't I enjoying swirling this silver piece under a bright light to view dancing luster and embedded golden hues. Folks, this piece is a gem. However, GFRC images with weak sunlight only capture the dark in hand appearance. So some imagination will be necessary to appreciate and then considing ordering on my description.
