Draped Bust 10C 1796 Draped Bust 1796

Choice New Price
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.

Large O
Original New Price
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.

Briggs 1-A
Choice New Price
New December 4! Special 15% Price Reduction - Choice Original Surfaces, Tough 1852 Philadelphia Date, 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. As a reference, GFRC sold a PCGS AU58 example for $1700 during April 2017.

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.

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.

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.

Grading is accurate and designated AU58 Details. Surfaces are covered with a deep gun metal gray-blue patina that is secondary toning.

Important Carson City Date, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Choice Original Surfaces, Conservative Grading, Malvern Collection. Price Reduction Effective August 25 2019. A better Morgan Carson City date with mintage of 1,352,000. This 1892-CC offering from the Malvern Collection is most pleasing at the assigned MS61 grade level. Many collectors have come to expect issues at the MS61 grade level; excess marks or subdued luster. I'm sorry to disappoint those expectations as this example radiates crisp reflective luster with active cartwheels. Field are lightly mirrored while the devices are frosty. Abrasions are minimal with just a single mark on the cheek and some light field chatter. Please remember that reflective fields amplify marks leading to lower assigned grades which I believe is the case here. A rose-gold toning arc covers the upper obverse and lower reverse. Conservatively graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. Worthy of special consideration as CAC approval validates what my eyes see.
