BG-735
AU55 raw
Original $235 Copper Gold Coloring, Sharp Rims, Problem Free Surfaces, Southern Maine Collection. A strictly original California Fractional quarter dollar with uniform copper gold toning. Rims are sharp and actual wear is minimum. I believe the assigned AU55 grade is fair for the overall appearance and quality. Off the market for several decades. An eclectic offering from the Southern Maine Collection.
$1 - Type 1 Liberty Head
Gold G$1 1849 1849
Closed Wreath
AU58 NGC
4840162005
Original $350 New December 17! Closed Wreath, Yellow Gold Coloring, First Year Strike, Nice for Type. 1849 brought the introduction of the small sized gold dollar with two different reverse hubs; Open Wreath and Closed Wreath. There was an influx of gold from California while Seated dollars did not circulate in every day commerce. The first released version was with the Open Wreath. The design was shifted to the Closed Wreath later during 1849 and kept until the end of the Type 1 design in 1854. This survivor offers yellow-gold coloring and frosty luster. Housed in new large font NGC holder. From the Osprey Collection.

Gold G$1 1851O 1851-O
MS61 NGC
3883990001
Choice $750 Mirrored Fields, Eye Appeal, Choice Original, Better New Orleans Strike.. A popular Type 1 design strike given the opportunity to own a New Orleans mint issue at slightly above a comparable Philadelphia issue. Mintage is low at 290,000. Fields are mirrored and sharply reflective under a light source. This piece is properly graded at MS61, on a technical basis, due to some obverse hairlines but in hand eye appeal is that of a higher grade. This is why this 1851-O gold dollar was added to GFRC inventory. Housed in newer NGC holder with some plastic lines that appear on the GFRC image. Believe me, this is a nice example for the grade.
Gold G$1 1852O 1852-O
MS63
PCGS
35738613
Choice $5650 CAC Condition Census, Rare in Mint State, Rich Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Accurately Grades, Osprey Collection. The 1852-O has the second lowest mintage of any Type 1 New Orleans mint gold dollar and is also the second rarest. Locating choice examples in higher uncirculated grades is very difficult. The CAC population report validates this fact with only three approved at MS63 level and three finer. Rich frosty luster is the highlight of this choice original offering. Surfaces are essentially abrasion free with a few very faint wispy hairlines seen under bright light viewing and nothing else. Obverse die is heavily cracked with die cracks from 9:00 to Liberty's nose and another from star to the bonnet. Coloring is natural medium green-gold. Strike is typical with the reverse DO(LL)AR and 8 digit being a tad weak. Overall, a quality representative of this rare date in Mint State. Freshly graded and housed in Gen 6.0S Gold Shield PCGS holder with CAC approval. An exceptional advanced collector offering from the Osprey Collection.

06649024
Choice $565 CAC, Choice Original, Mark Mattox Estate (Alexandria Collection). Production of one-dollar gold pieces at the Philadelphia Mint reached its peak in this year, making this a natural selection as a type coin. This is a lovely, appealing piece, with warm orange-gold toning and minimal marks, especially on the obverse. The strike is sharp with Liberty's hair completely defined. There is no substitute for quality, and it is all here. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.

$1900
New January 17! Gem Type 1 Design, Radiant Frosty Luster, Light Orange-Gold Coloring, Fully Struck, Osprey Collection. Honestly, I thought this gem 1854 Type 1 G$1 would be approved at CAC. Surfaces are unabraded along with a complete strike. Light orange gold luster is radiant and pleasing with shimmering cartwheels under a light source. All the ingredients were present coupled with eye appeal consistent with the grade. With time, I'm becoming a believer that small denomination coinage in old standard NGC holders need to be reholdered before CAC submission. Frankly, the coins are difficult to see and appreciate in the old confining holders. GFRC images are very accurate as to coloring and the lack of marks expected at the gem grade level. Housed in early NGC holder with standard ring insert. A wonderful offering from an old time Sarasota Florida area collection.

New January 17! Scarce Type 2 Mint State Gold $1, Mirrored Fields, Sharp Reflective Luster, Green Gold Coloring, Osprey Collection. Sharp reflective luster from partially mirrored fields are difficult to avoid on this attractive 1855 Type 2 Indian Princess. Green-gold is the predominant coloring on both sides. Heavy reverse clashing is seen along with a few micro lines that are consistent with the assigned grade. Experienced U.S. gold collector will promptly recognized the importance of a Type 2 Indian Princess offering in Mint State. The Type 2 design was limited to only two years (part of 1854 and 1855) with insufficient supply to support all market demand. Housed in early NGC holder with standard ring insert. A wonderful offering from an old time Sarasota Florida area collection.

5742346007
Choice $5175 New January 17! Popular Branch Mint Type 2 Strike, Grainy Frosty Luster, Deep Green-Gold Coloring, Ideal AU58 Grade, Osprey Collection. Mintage for 1855 New Orleans branch mint strikes was a small 55,000 pieces. For gold type collectors seeking a branch mint Type 2 gold dollar, New Orleans strikes are popular based on finish and pricing. Doug Winter states that the 1855-O date is "moderately scarce n lower AU graees and visually pleasing AU58 coins are not easy to locate." This AU58 graded survivor is most pleasing and secured CAC approval. Surfaces are covered with granular frost at the legend and outer reverse wreath. Resulting luster is somewhere between reflective and frosty. Coloring is a consistent green-gold. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.

The 1870 Type 3 Indian Princess is quite scarce with a tiny mintage of 6,300 pieces. This survivor offers rich orange-gold coloring that has been accurately captured by GFRC images. Mirrored fields generate considerable reflective luster that is nearly blinding. Reverse luster should come with a "protective sunglasses" warning as so brilliant. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.2 (2004-2005) holder. PCGS population is a low twenty pieces at the AU55 grade level. Hurry on this offering as I suspect it will not last long.

Choice $825 New December 4! Rich Mint Bloom, Orange-Gold Patina. Brilliant Luster, Conservative Grading. Substantial granular mint frost is continuous throughout the fields and devices on this gorgeous 1874 Type 3 Indian Princess. Resulting luster is stunning with shimmering cartwheels. Coloring is classic orange-gold. Strike is just a tad weak at the hair curls but the luster and conservative grading more than compensate at the MS64 grade level. Housed in PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder with CAC approval. Collectors should be paying attention to U.S. CAC gold as premiums continue to see upward pressure. What a wonderful type coin candidate.

82153022
Choice $650 Choice Original, Mark Mattox Estate (Alexandria Collection). This type III one-dollar gold piece rounds out the Mark Mattox collection of gold dollar varieties. The portrait of Liberty on the type III piece is quite similar to that of the three-dollar gold piece, while the reverse cereal wreath is closed, rather than open as on the three-dollar coin. Luster is above average on the obverse, which exhibits clash marks, quite typical in the one-dollar gold series. A few reverse marks are found near the top of the wreath, but the surfaces are original and the eye appeal is CAC-endorsed. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder (2015-date).

Gem $18000 New January 19! Ultra Cameo Proof, CAC Approval, American Centennial Memento, 25-35 Survivors, Osprey Collection. The production of 1876 dated gold proof coins saw a marked increase to 45 pieces for each denomination from the typical 20 piece proof gold mintages of that period. The greater production was likely in anticipation of higher demand due to the American Centennial celebration. Somewhere between 25 to 35 pieces are reported to survive today. This Ultra Cameo gem boasts optimal contrast over orange-gold surfaces that reveal a bold strike and no singular marks. A careful loupe inspection reveals remnants of the die finishing process due to the mirrored fields. Total CAC approved population is a mere seven pieces. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert and fresh CAC approval. Sourced from an old time U.S. gold collection that recently appeared in the Sarasota Florida area. The Osprey Collection strikes again with an exceptional offering.

Original $4775 New January 1! Historically Important Offering, Medium Greenish-Gold Coloring, Soft Luster, Normal Coin Turn Die Alignment. 1839 New Orleans strikes were limited to only 17,781 pieces. This date is historically significant as the first gold coin produced at the New Orleans mint along with being the only New Orleans quarter eagle with a mintmark located on the obverse. This results in the date being a popular one year type. The Osprey Collection is back with a pleasing NGC AU55 graded example that featured medium greenish-gold coloring and soft frosty luster.

New December 16! Very Rare Early New Orleans Date, Above Average Strike, Orange-Green and Gold Coloring, A Special Opportunity, Osprey Collection.. For those collectors who know their early small denomination gold, this 1842-O $2.5 quarter eagle will prove to be quite special. Frankly, it warrants a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation after conducting some research. Mintage is only 19,800 with none produced during 1841 due to lack of bullion in New Orleans. Both Akers and Winter agree that this date is very rare within their supporting CoinFacts commentary. Specifically, Akers mentioned, "scarce in all grades and extremely rare better than EF. Doug Winter add that 75% to 85% of those seen have been weakly struck. Weakly is a subjective term, but one look at the three CoinFacts plate coins revealed flat obverse and reverse strikes with missing curls and eagle details. GFRC is thrilled to be offering this Osprey Collection example graded AU55 with a full strike. This super example exhibits unmolested surfaces that are colored orange-green. The overal strike is amazing strong while the fields are unabraded. This is truly a special offering for the knowledgable collector and worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation.

Choice $1085 Old Reverse Design, Near-Gem at Grade, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Reflective Luster. A near-gem original 1859 $2.5 quarter eagle struck with the old reverse hub of 1840-1858. The old and new hubs can be easily attributed by checking the arrow feathers below the olive stem. If the feathers touches the left facing claw, then the hub is that of 1840-1858. If the feather is short and does not touch, then the die was cut from the new design hub. Those struck with the old hub are about twice as rare as the new hub design. This attractive example has been well preserved and warrants its CAC green bean. Surfaces are coloed greenish-gold. Fields are steely and emit reflective luster. Strike is complete with light wear. Eye appeal is above average. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

This piece was hand selected by the Osprey Collection for its above average eye appeal and overall quality. Since so few Mint State survivors are available, gold enthusiast should take note.

Gem $900 Gem Original, Old Time Conservative Grading. Mintage of 578,000 at the Denver mint and the last $2.5 Indians to be produced. Once again, let's consider the 1925-D issue's background as explained by David Akers. He states, "Almost always having very good to excellent mint lustre but the striking quality varies greatly; some are very unevenly struck while others are well struck. Dies seem to have been a problem with this issue, and many specimens were clearly struck from buckled or deteriorated dies. The mint mark is usually a little weak but well defined. There are some specimens, however, where the mintmark is so weak that it is nearly invisible. The color is typically a rose tinted gold but there are also coppery colored specimens as well as ones with green and yellow gold shades. The surfaces are frosty with little or no granularity." In light of these observation, this example was carefully examined with a 10x loupe. Surfaces are frosty with brilliant cartwheel luster. Strike is complete and uniform with some minor die bulging below the Indian's chin and behind E PLU(RI)BUS. Overall eye appeal is superior and warrants a gem quality rating. Housed in NGC fatty holder with CAC approval. An offering for collectors attempt a type set with preference for all TPG holders and CAC approval.

It is obtainable in grades up to AU55 but becomes very rare in AU58 and is extremely rare in full Uncirculated condition. This offering is one of the two mint state examples graded by PCGS. Surfaces are absolutely choice with exceptional satiny luster. Obverse patina is natural rose and orange-gold while the reverse adds splashes of rich orange-gold leading increased eye appeal.

Many times, some of the highest graded survivors for a rare date are just not that attractive with collectors learning to love these pieces for what they are. This is not the case for this lovely 1855-S $5 half eagle offering. Eye appeal and condition census rarity are available together. The only comparable 1855-S half eagle to sell at auction was the Bass II coin sold over twenty years ago for $17,250. Today, that coin would be much more.

Intense luster has a satiny texure and just drips off this gold piece. NGC has assigned an MS64+ grade with CAC agreeing with the designation.

Choice $2100 Mint State Rarity, Rich Orange-Gold Patina, Completely Struck, Fairly Graded. The 1894-S $5 half eagle is one of the most underrated and undervalued dates in the entire Liberty series. Mintage was limited to 55,900 piece with few survivors in any grade. When reaching the market, the typical specimen is invariably only EF to AU. In Mint State, the date is very rare. PCGS population report immediately illustrated the Mint State rarity. There is a lone MS63 and three at the MS63 grade level which are five figure examples when located. The balance of the Mint State pieces are graded MS61-MS62. This MS61 graded example offers excellent eye appeal. Rich orange-gold covers the surfaces. Brilliant frosty luster and cartwheels are bold under a light source. Strike is complete with all devices uniformly impressed. The assigned PCGS grade appears related to the reverse copper spot otherwise the luster supports a higher grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. Old time patina, frosty luster and Mint State rarity should make this 1894-S $5 piece a compelling value at the offer price.

Housed in old NGC Fatty holder with brown label. Fresh CAC approval. Recently purchased from an old Sarasota collection and off the market for several decades. Yes, the asking price is high, but so is the old time quality. Please check CoinFacts and a 1/18 DLRC record at $1950 for a rattler MS63 with CAC approval as a comparison. This piece is a full MS64.

Choice $7500 Better St. Gaudens Date, Choice Original, Thick Granular Mint Frost, Greenish-Gold Patina, Osprey Collection. 1924 Denver St. Gaudens strikes were produced in large quantities. Regardless, this date is an important rarity in choice to gem mint state grades. This choice original mint state example was purchased from an old Sarasota collection that had been off the market for several decades. It was subsequently regraded and is housed in new large font NGC holder. Granular mint frost is consistent on both obverse and reverse with essentially no abrasions. Under a bright light, the frosty luster is perfectly consistent with no points of distractions. Given the unabraded surfaces, luster intensity is the only issue holding this piece from near gem status. The Osprey Collection is back with yet another enticing United States gold offering to consider.
