MS65 PCGS
28781322

Gem $1385 8 Tail Feathers, VAM-21, Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Rose Gold and Peripheral Blue Toning, Spectacular Eye Appeal, Osprey Collection . VAM-21. A gem dual sided toned Morgan dollar and better 8 Tail Feather variety for initial year of production. Accurately graded at the MS65 level with flashy cartwheel luster. Both obverse and reverse are covered with a transparent rose/gold patina along with a sky blue arc at the lower rim. This piece provides an alternative collecting option rather than the common blast white examples on the market. The MS65 grade level is the last "collector" grade for many since guide prices jump from $1450 to $6750 at the MS66 grade level. GFRC asking price is below the PCGS MS65 price guide for a lovely toner example. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. Another top quality offering from the Osprey Collection.

Original $215 7 Tail Feather, Reverse of 1879, Original Frosty Luster, Conservative Grading, Saco River Collection. Frosty cartwheel luster is the highlight of this pretty 1878 7TF Morgan. For the assigned MS62 grade, I would expect to see more abraided surfaces but that is not the case. Grading is therefore conservative as the luster is consistent with many MS63 examples seen. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A quality offering from the Saco River Collection.

Surfaces and rims are abrasion free and excellent for the grade. Housed in 2015 PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. The PCGS label reads "Mint Error 90 Deg CW Rotated Dies". A really cool offering from the MUrphys Collection that warrants special consideration.

Choice $215 Attractive Aquamarine Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Saco River Collection. Aquamarine-blue obverse toning is the highlight of this lovely 1878 San Francisco Morgan. The GFRC images are quite inadequate in capturing the frosty obverse cartwheel luster so you will have to use your imagination. Accurately graded since there are two micro blemishes on the cheek but the eye appeal is well beyond your typical BU MS64 Morgan. Housed in newer NGC holder.

19858614

Gem $285 Vivid Rose, Blues, Aquamarine, Mirrored Surfaces, Cartwheel Luster. Being selective on toned Morgans is standard operating procedure at GFRC. Getting them to photograph properly is a significant challenge with many attempts to remove lighting reflections. I'm finally pleased with these images. Toning is multicolor rainbow with gold, rose and blues on the obverse and aquamarine and gold on the reverse. Many 1880 San Francisco examples come lightly PL as is the case with this example. Under bright light, the PL surfaces accentuate the colorful toning and adds a new dimension of enjoyment. As one would expect from an MS65 graded piece, the fields and main devices are blemish free. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder. CAC approval is fully warranted.

GFRC images are very accurate.

Gem $725 Early Generation NGC 2 White Label Holder, Gem Original, Mirrored Fields, Jim Poston Consignment. Rare NGC 2 generation holder with white paper label and white plastic insert. A short lived issue as it become apparent that a plain white label on white plastic was not an ideal solution.

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.

30019251

Original $180 New July 28! Lustrous Slider, Twin Lakes Collection. The 1892 Morgan is a slightly better date in the series, with barely a million pieces struck. The Twin Lakes consignor liked to avoid overly common dates, and this example is no exception. The coin is a true "slider" with superior luster and just a few traces of wear on the high points, notably Liberty's ear and surrounding curls. Marks are minimal for the assigned grade, with only a short horizontal line underneath Liberty's chin worthy of mention. A flashy coin for the grade and a pleasing representative of the Morgan design. This coin is in a Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) PCGS holder.

Choice $1700 important Carson City Date, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Choice Original Surfaces, Conservative Grading, Malvern Collection. 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.

Original $375 Crusty Original Gray, Perfect for Grade. A perfectly original 1892 San Francisco strike with choice surfaces and crusty gray patina.

Choice $3300 Key Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold Patina, Considerable Old Time Eye Appeal, Bradenton Collection. Off the market for several decades and previously stored in a custom Capital Plastic holder as part of a larger collection in central Florida. GFRC has been slowly handling this Bradenton collection and is pleased to be offering the key date 1893 and 1894 Morgan dollars. This 1894 offering is so wholesome and choice! Surfaces are 100% naturally toned with no traces of being dipped. Frosty luster is uninterrupted on both sides with active cartwheels. A silver gray patina contains embedded gold that is more evident at the rims. Mintage is only 110,000 with many dipped examples seen at mint state grade levels. Natural eye appeal is so pure and attractive with few abrasions at the assigned grade. I just cannot stress this point enough. Freshly graded and housed in new 2015 style PCGS 6.0 holder.

Original $345 New July 3! Better Date Morgan, Ideal AU58 Value Grade, Frosty Luster, Untoned Surfaces, Twin Lakes Collection. A better date Morgan dollar that is available in circulated grades, but becomes scarce in mint state. The AU58 grade is ideal value point for collectors as near mint state details and luster are available at a small fraction of mint state pricing. This offering is accurately graded with frosty cartwheel luster and untoned surfaces. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. Another quality AU58 graded offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.

Gem $795 Early Generation NGC 2 White Label Holder, Gem Original, Frosty Luster, Gold CAC Approval, Jim Poston Consignment. Rare NGC 2 generation holder with white paper label and white plastic insert. A short lived issue as it become apparent that a plain white label on white plastic was not an ideal solution. This holder is reported to have had a shorter life span than the infamous Gen 1 black insert. Realistically, the NGC holder and Gold CAC approval are driving the asking price but let's not forget the lovely 1898-O Morgan that is housed inside. A gem Morgan dollar that has been obviously undegraded back in the late 1987 timeframe. CAC recognized this fact and awarded a Gold CAC sticker. Bold frosty luster is consistent with a higher grade. Mottled gray-gold toning is consistent on both sides and validates the strict originality. Another vintage holder offering from Jim Poston.

Choice $295 New July 28! Choice, Better-Date, Twin Lakes Collection. Another lower-mintage Morgan from the Twin Lakes consignor, the 1899-S dollar was struck to the extent of just 2.5 million pieces during an era when the Mint was keeping the silver pipeline as full as possible. Frosty luster on this example hosts even silver color throughout, with a bit more "pop" than is revealed by these images. The ear and adjacent curl are a touch soft but the remaining detail is strong. Slabbed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 holder (2005-2011).

Choice $235 Near Gem Original, Rose/Aquamarine Patina, Cartwheel Luster. A wonderful dual sided toned Morgan on a bit better date. Bold cartwheel luster coupled with bullseye toning produce spectacular eye appeal. Let's start with the obverse; light rose center that quickly transitions to aquamarine during in hand viewing. The reverse is similar but with more golden hues. Placing this dollar under bright light is a lot of fun. The aquamarine shifts to sky blue with a bold gold ring between legends at the rim. This piece offers MS65 eye appeal but is grade limited by a few tiny ticks that require a 10x loupe to locate. Housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder. The lighter reverse area between 9:00 and 12:00 is typical lighting reflections during photography. This Morgan offers consistent toning on obverse and reverse.
Morgan $1 1921 1921
AU58 PCGS
18314292

Original $34 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. A quality AU58 set offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.

Gem $650 Gem Toner, Amazing Rainbow Colors, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck. Images accurately capture the amazing array of rainbow colors found on this gem original 1923 Peace dollar. What the GFRC images are unable to capture is the frosty cartwheel luster that radiates through the rainbow toning. Purchased from a GFRC customer as he is divesting the contents of a safety deposit box. An incredible Peace dollar as few are ever seen completely toned over and strictly original as found with this offering.

Original $135 Original, Toned, Twin Lakes Collection.. A better-date Peace dollar, and prized at the uncirculated level. Bowers notes that these were represented in the Treasury hoard releases in smaller quantities than other issues. This example has light beige obverse "skin" and a silver-toned reverse. Occasional crust is seen in protected areas such as the eagle's primary feathers and the legend. A quality AU58 set offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.
Peace $1 1926 1926
MS64 PCGS
84974659

Gem $295 Gem, Frosty, Rim-Toned.. Mintages in the Peace dollar series fall greatly after 1925, adding to the appeal of this 1926-dated example. One's eye is immediately captured by the spectacular obverse rim toning. Rings of gold, ruseet and blue surround a fully brilliant figure of Liberty at the center. The reverse is largely brilliant with the exception of a few letters in the legend. The strike is typical for a Peace dollar, with the reverse letting in particular not deeply impressed. A few ticks above the reverse eagle preclude a higher technical grade. Another beauty from the Seal Beach Collection, and housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder (2015-present).

Beautiful Light Pastel Toning, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck, Gansu Collection. 1926 Denver strikes are definitely a better date in mint state condition.
