Seated 10C 1839O Seated 10C 1839-O
No Drapery
Choice $800 Early Die State Cobweb Shattered Reverse, Steely Luster, Bright Light Eye Appeal, Massachusetts Collection. Have you ever thought of building an 1839 F-106 reverse die progression? This is possible as the F-106 Cobweb Shattered reverse was used continually into a termination die state. Finding an F-106 without reverse die cracks will prove to many time more challenging than the popular later die states. This Massachusetts Collection duplicate was struck during the earlier pottion of the reverse die life with light die cracks. This example comes with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as I'm lovin' the brilliant steely fields and resulting luster. The reverse bright light performance is stunning. Bluish-gray toning covers the obverse with embedded gold that extends to the reverse. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
Seated 10C 1871 Seated 10C 1871
Gem $1450 Repunched Date, Intense Watery Mirrors, Gem Original, Top 100, Mountaineer Collection. I'm really loving this superb 1871 F-101 repunched date proof dime and believe that a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation is warranted. This gem presents intense watery mirrors and lots of bright light viewing pleasure. Deep green-rose in-hand coloring shifts to aquamarine-gold once the fields become reflective. Surfaces are entirely unabraded. Wire rims are bold and high. This proof die variety struggles to achieve higher certified grades due to the unique die finish. As is typical for the variety, there is pushed arcing metal at Liberty's head and at (O)F. I've yet to determine the cause of that arcing metal that is also unique to this die pair. A Top 100 listed variety and a fitting inclusion into an advanced set. Housed in new large font NGC holder with "18/18 TOP-100 F-101" attribution on label. CAC approval too!
Seated 10C 1875 Seated 10C 1875
Choice $625 Rare Misplaced 5 in Base Variety, Reflective Luster, Near-Gem. As a collector assembling the later published The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors, I searched for over a decade for the 1875 F-106 misplaced 5 in the base specimen. The Greer plate coin was the only example known to me. Since operating GFRC, I've seen a few others including an MS65 specimen. I remain thrilled to be handling this lovely MS64 example for a second time. A fully struck specimen with lightly mirrored fields and a semi-transparent layer of faint gray-rose patina. The misplaced 5 digit is well defined in the base. I'm going with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation at the asking price. Treat yourself and add this special offering to a collection! Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
Seated 10C 1877 Seated 10C 1877

Gem $1450 Remarkable Cameo Preservation, Sharp Mirrors, Colorful Toning, Low CAC Population. Top end mint state and proof strikes are difficult to located for the 1877 Philadelphia date. Business strikes have a common date status but just try to find gems. This 1877 proof strike is worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as one of the finer pieces recently handled among many. How I enjoy the watery obverse fields and reflections. Obverse toning is boldly colorful with center rose surrounded by blues. At the right lighting angle, some gold also appears at the rims with more prevalence on the reverse. A 10x review finds a few faint lines that are enhanced by the mirrors. I guarantee that the buyer will be thrilled upon arrival. CAC population is 7 at grade with 6 finer for Cameo designation. Housed in NGC Gen 17 (2004-2008) holder with CAC approval.

Capped Bust 50C 1823 Capped Bust 50C 1823
Patched 3

Choice $7250 Patch 3, Exceptional Eye Appeal, Brilliant Frosted Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Very Scarce CAC Approved. A luscious 1823 O-101a Patched 3 offering that would be a highlight in an advanced Capped Bust half dollar collection. Beautifully preserved with a stunning presentation of brilliant frosted luster and surrounding copper-gold and aquamarine-blue peripheral toning at the rims. A few luster breaks in the left obverse field account for the technical grade. Eye appeal however, is that of a higher grade. Mint worker efforts to "patch" the center of the digit is easily seen under 10x. This is a low CAC population variety that is always popular. Only three have been approved at this grade level with six finer. The pricing premiums grow much more substantial at Choice Mint State. I like this piece so much that a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation is warranted as this is such a pretty example. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 holder with CAC approval.

Toning is intermixed olive, rose, gold, and gray. Bright light viewing leads to light rose-gold with shimmering luster. Why MS61? Someone at NGC was having a bad hair day and took it out on this beautiful Capped Bust half as I'm unable to find any abrasions that explain the low Mint State grade. O-116 captures Obverse Hub 8 with double outline of clasp. CAC population is two at MS61 and eight at MS62. Well worth the asking price. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert and CAC approval.
