Choice $185 New October 11! Eye Catching Toning, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Light Gold with Peripheral Blues. The GFRC images speak for themselves concerning this attractive 1881-S toner Morgan. I've not added a toner Morgan to inventory in a long time but this piece spoke to me at the Manchester NH Coin Expo. It was just to pretty to pass up as I enjoy having attractive coins in inventory. Light gold covers both sides with eye catching periphery blue obverse ring. Luster is brilliant and frosty. Cartwheels are as expected for an 1881-S at the MS64 level. I believe that a luster break on the lower jaw held this one back from CA approval. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Morgan $1 1882CC 1882-CC

Gem $1350 New October 11! PL Designation, Sharp Reflective Luster, Unabraded Mirrors, Gem Eye Appeal and Then Some!. At GFRC, we don't often handle high grade PL designated Morgans. This 1882 Carson City strike brings superb eye appeal to the table. Mirrors are intense and highly reflective during bright light inspection. The MS66 grade indicates that the mirrors are essentially undisturbed with only a single micro mark in the upper left field interrupting the perfect mirrors. Rose-gold toning is uniform on both sides and mostly concentrated at the rims. GFRC photography is adequate but does not fully capture the intense mirrors. CAC approval is an important credential when collecting proof like designated specimens. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder. Worth of the most selective collector's consideration.

Morgan $1 1884O 1884-O

Choice $165 Dual Sided Darker Rainbow Toning Clean Cheek. Let's start the description but pointing out the lighting reflections (9:00 - 11:00) on obverse and reverse images are not on the coin. The toning on this lovely Morgan is consistent and radial in nature. This Morgan was added to inventory for the simple reason; eye appeal and bold rainbow coloring even if the toning is slightly on the dark side. This piece performs very well under bright and needs a length description. Obverse has a rose/gray center that is surrounded by a rainbow ring over the stars, legend and date. The lower arc on the image is rich blues under bright light. The reverse has a light rose/blue center that is well framed by a ring of orange gold throughout the legend. Again the lower arc is rich blue. Surfaces are blemish free for an MS64 grade. I like the piece so I bought it. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Peace $1 1934 1934

Choice $260 Price Reduction, GFRC Consignor Buyout, Eye Appeal, Choice Original. The Peace dollar is a favorite within American coinage, which has sadly produced fewer and fewer artistic renderings of Miss Liberty. This brilliantly toned example exhibits swaths of light gold on both sides, with additional gray and russet on the obverse. The only mark of note lies beneath the portrait truncation to the right. The strike is typical, with PEACE on the reverse nearly effaced, while the remainder of the reverse lettering is lightly impressed, an effect commonly seen on Peace dollars. The 1934 issue is a better date in the series, with less than a million pieces struck, and this is an affordable example of the type with near-gem luster. Housed in a PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder.
