Flying Eagle 1C 1857 Flying Eagle 1C 1857

Choice $1550 New April 9! Notable Flying Eagle Type Candidate, Frosted Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Pristine Surfaces. 1857 brought a transition year for copper coinage as the old-style Large Cent and a new, smaller cent with an eagle flying left across the obverse were issued. Of course, economics were at work as the smaller cent cost less to produce due to lower copper content. Many were saved, therefore the 1857 issue is ideal for type collectors. This survivor warrants a near-gem quality rating for its pristine surfaces along with its glowing frosted luster that radiates nicely under a bright light. The cartwheels are equally pleasing with a swirling motion when activated. The strike is also complete. Aggressive priced as the PCGS price guide is currently $1,800. Let's add a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as further testament. Housed in new large font NGC holder.

Under a light source, the field are sharply mirrored and highly reflective. The luster amplifies beautiful ring toning.

I'm calling a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for this wonderful Osprey Collection find. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder with CAC approval.

Washington 25C 1961 Washington 25C 1961

I've got to start this description with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as I've blown away by the coloration when placed under a bright light. GFRC images just begin to scratch the surface and cannot illustrate the intensely rainbowed reverse. Mirrors have a watery texture and are a fitting backdrop to a host of colors that shift in and out when modulating the coin. The obverse hosts violet, pink, rose and blue shades while the reverse exhibits bullseye rainbow toning that is quite transparent. Forget the guide books as this piece is in a class of its own and warrants a strong premium. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.

Choice $11500 Final Year Carson City Issue, Frosted Luster, Near Pristine Surfaces, Osprey Collection. As the final Carson City issue in the series, the 1893-CC ten is highly sought-after in all grades. The small 14,000 piece mintage ensures overall scarcity for surviving examples. CAC has approved 55 in all grades with roughly half being at the AU55/AU58 levels. In terms of 20th century coinage populations, there are few green bean stickered 1893-CC $10 gold to satisfy collector demand. The Osprey Collection is back with a really sweet example that is a pleasure to post to the GFRC price list.
