The 1840-O Large O F-101 is a rare die state variety as compared to the more "available" F-101a where both obverse and reverse dies were lapped removing most of the obverse date punch details.

Choice $3475 Rare Grade, Frosty Cartwheels, Old Album Toning, New Chicago ANA Show Purchase. Mintage for 1856 New Orleans struck dimes is a high 1,180,000 pieces but like many of the With Stars dates from the deep southern mint, mint state pieces are cherished rarities. GFRC is most pleased to be offering the large sized CoinFacts PCGS MS64 plate coin. Thia example was struck from the F-107 die pair rather than the common F-104 repunched date.

Brilliant frosty luster and swirling cartwheels immediate jump out when viewed under a light source. The colorful in hand toning is semi-transparent to the underlying luster.

This piece is housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with considerable plastic haze on the reverse that impacts photography and the enjoyment factor. A superb gem that should secure a MS65+ grade.

NGC Fatty

Gem $1835 Gem Original at Grade, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Greenish-Gold Patina, Fully Struck . Let's open the description for this gem original 1915-S St. Gaudens with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Honestly, there was an expectation for CAC Gold bean due to the lack of abrasions and brilliant frosty luster. In hand, this $20 double eagle looks more like a 64 than a 63 in my humble opinion. Greenish-gold patina covered surfaces offer vibrant cartwheels under a light source. Fully struck, in particular with well defined eyes and nose on Liberty's face. 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.
