Shield Nickels
Shield  1875 1875
Gem $1050 Reduced Price - Consignor Buyout. . GFRC has just bought out a wonderful 1875 Shield nickel with brilliant metallic luster. This gem is accurate graded with hammered strike. All vertical and horizontal shield lines are completely defined with clear separation. Faint die polish lines are seen behind the primary obverse devices. Most important for type collectors, seeking pristine examples, is the lack of die cracks that is commonplace on Shield nickels. A no question gem with huge luster and serious eye appeal. If building a type set and searching for an exceptional Shield nickel, this candidate warrants serious attention. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
Liberty V Nickels
Liberty V  1893 1893
Gem $750 New September 23! Brilliant White Reflective Luster, Near Cameo Visual Presence, Gem Original - Westend Avenue Collection. The Westend Avenue cavalcade continues with a superb gem 1893 Liberty Head nickel. Brilliant reflective white luster is eye catching. After close scrutiny, I believe the lack of cameo designation is due to the lighter fields as seen in-hand. Only two ticks hold this one back from a higher grade. Worthy of an advanced type collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval.
Liberty V  1911 1911
Gem $425 Gem Original, Light Rose Gold Patina, Swirling Cartwheel Luster, Well Struck. Blemish Free, Accurately Graded, Philadelphia ANA Consignment . Bright light viewing of this 1911 Liberty or V Nickel is quite pleasing. Gem surfaces offer swirling cartwheels without uninterruption due to blemishes or heavy toning. Luster texture is closer to frosty for this piece. Well struck with sharp reverse wreath. Accurately graded and housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. A quality consignment from the 2018 Philadelphia ANA show.
Buffalo Nickels
Buffalo  1913S 1913-S
Type 1 Reverse
Gem $1400 Low Mintage San Francisco Strike, Brilliant Luster, Complete Strike, CAC Approval. An important 1913-S Type 1 San Francisco that was recently purchased as part of a box of 20 collection. Each coin was handpicked by a very selective collector. This early Buffalo is a superb gem with brilliant mint frost and a complete strike. All device details are incredibly sharp including "watery" details on the reverse. This piece should move into a high end Buffalo collection as the eye appeal is exceptational. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.5 (2011-2013) holder with CAC approval. As reference, CDN CAC guide is $1620.
Buffalo  1913S 1913-S
Type 2
Original $825 Challenging Type 2 Mintmark, Crusty Patina, Glowing Luster. A popular and tough 1913 Type 2 San Francisco mint issue with thick golden toning. Bright light inspection reveals the underlying glowing mint luster. Well struck and 100% original. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
Buffalo  1913S 1913-S
Type 2
Choice $650 Difficult San Francisco Type 2 Strike, Well Preserved, Residual Satiny Luster, A Rose Buffalo!. The 1913 key date among the Type 1 and Type 2 design types with rapid price increases in AU due to heavy circulation. This AU55 graded specimen would be a wise selection. Surfaces are minimally worn though the piece is struck from late die state dies. Residual satiny luster is obvious during bright light inspection. Obverse has mottled gold while the reverse features a rose buffalo! How cool is that? A special offering that will please the fussy collector. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.
Buffalo  1919S 1919-S
Original $535 Scarce Semi-Key Dates, Light Champagne Toning, Heavily Eroded Dies, Twin Lakes Collection. It is difficult to believe, but the beginning of 1919 brought the 18th Amendment which prohibited alcohol. The Prohibition Era arrived while the San Francisco Mint struck 7,000,000 Buffalo nickels that mostly went into circulation. Regardless of the substantial mintage, this date is a semi-key date and scarce. The Twin Lakes Collection is back with an AU58 survivor struck from heavily eroded dies. The obverse has light champagne toning while the reverse is a light gray. Both side exhibit steely luster during bright light inspection. Die erosion is severe at the denomination and mintmark. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) Dupont hologram holder.
Buffalo  1935 1935
Gem $175 Gem Original, Satiny Luster, Accurately Graded. A quality later date Buffalo nickel that is accurately graded at the MS66 level. Satiny luster is predominate. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.
Buffalo  1937S 1937-S
MS66 NGC Fatty
Gem $100 Superb Gem, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Houston Collection. Old time conservative grading is apparent with this lovely 1837 San Francisco strike. Crisp steely untoned luster dominates. Housed in NGC Fatty holder with standard ring insert. The holder is in pristine condition other than the smaller impairment of the upper left corner of reverse hologram.
Buffalo  1938D 1938-D
Gem $50 Copper Gold Patina, Gem Original, Accurately Graded. Housed in new large font NGC holder. For fans of heavily toned Buffalo nickels. Luster provides nice contrast with the copper-gold coloring.
