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.

Briggs 2-B
Choice $750 Tough Philadelphia Date, Choice Surfaces, Old Album Ring Toning, Super Eye Appeal. I'm going with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for this beautifully toned low mintage 1852 Seated quarter. Bright light inspection exposes peripheral gold that surrounds center sky blue and a hint of rose. The color transition from in-hand to bright light viewing is dramatic. Let's remember that 1852 dated quarters are scarce due to heavy melting during the 1850-1853 silver arbitrage timeframe before silver planchet weight was reduced. This offering has it all; scarcity, eye appeal, and strong strike. There is one well hidden obverse line through Liberty's lower legs. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder. Second time on the GFRC price list after buy-back! It was my pleasure to get this choice example back.

Gem $2975 New June 29! Low Mintage Date, Gorgeous Eye Appeal, Brilliant Steely Frosted Luster, CAC Approval. What a joy to be adding this gorgeous 1887 Seated quarter to GFRC inventory. One of only 10,000 minted that has been carefully preserved for well over a century. This is a lustrous piece with superb eye appeal facilitated by unabraded fields. The overall cameo appearance would suffer with marks in the fields. The exact opposite is true as the steely/frosted luster is continuous without interruption during bright light assessment. Dancing cartwheel action is of a high grade. I truly like this example enough to issue a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. CAC approval is icing on the cake from a financial investment perspective. Unquestionably a circulation strike (Briggs 1-A) given the die scratch in the lower left obverse shield. Housed in NGC Gen 17 (2004-2008) holder with standard ring insert.
