The offered example is one of two graded by PCGS at the AU55 level. This survivor features soft frosty luster and active cartwheels. A semi-transparent aquamarine-gold patina covers both sides and is a testament to the strict originality and unmolested surfaces.

Choice $5250 New January 22! Rare Grade, Choice Original, Thick Gray Patina, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Completely Struck, Newtown Collection . 1868 San Francisco strikes have a reported mintage of 260,000 with only one die pair striking all quantities. Therefore, examples in early through late die states can be occasionally found. The only difference between early and late die states is denticle die erosion and increased presence of metal flow lines. On the obverse, light diagonal die lines are evident in the shield below the scroll. Both the obverse and reverse are clashed on late die state specimens. Contrary to the mintage, this date is very scarce at the AU grade level and rare in Mint State. Checking PCGS population reports, there are eleven examples certified in all AU grades followed by eight pieces at the MS62/63 grades, then eleven graded MS64. I believe the reported eleven pieces at the MS64 level is an anomaly due to upgrade attempts as this date is never available in MS64 or better. Heritage has sold one example in PCGS/NGC MS64 since being in business. I hope that a case has been made for this offering's rarity! A no question higher grade mint state example that is completely struck. Surfaces are covered with thick gray patina that contains embedded rose when viewed under a light source. Satiny luster provides cartwheel effects but is a but subdued due to the thick patina. A careful 10x loupe inspection revealed no blemishes whatsoever.

The 1842-O F-103 reverse is a leftover die from 1841. The reverse die degrades further with numerous die cracks and considerable weakness in the legend.

The Large O F-105 Reverse is rotated left by approximately 45 degrees on a tiny number of examples of 1850 New Orleans struck dimes. Dick Osburn was the first to discover and report a rotated reverse for 1850 New Orleans coinage. The discovery piece graded VG-8. Afterwards, several other higher grade examples appeared in the market. We should not be surprised to find an 1850 New Orleans dime with a rotated reverse considering that three of the four 1849-O die pairings produced a rotated reverse event. From this new evidence, we know that the systematic die alignment problem that plagued the New Orleans mint in 1849 extended into 1850. The offered example is choice with crusty gray patina on both sides. Well struck and accurately graded. There is an ancient vertical line through the upper obverse shield noted for completeness.

Many 1870 F-104 examples seen come with colorful toning in rich copper gold or rose-blue shades. This offering, from the Cleveland Collection, is characterized by pretty radial toning. The obverse has a rose center that is framed by a teal-blue ring at the legend. The reverse is toned a uniform rose-orange with thin peripheral blue ring. Luster is somewhat reflective which is also typical for the F-104 die pair. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder.

Gem $18000 New January 19! Ultra Cameo Proof, CAC Approval, American Centennial Memento, 25-35 Survivors, Osprey Collection. The production of 1876 dated gold proof coins saw a marked increase to 45 pieces for each denomination from the typical 20 piece proof gold mintages of that period. The greater production was likely in anticipation of higher demand due to the American Centennial celebration. Somewhere between 25 to 35 pieces are reported to survive today. This Ultra Cameo gem boasts optimal contrast over orange-gold surfaces that reveal a bold strike and no singular marks. A careful loupe inspection reveals remnants of the die finishing process due to the mirrored fields. Total CAC approved population is a mere seven pieces. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert and fresh CAC approval. Sourced from an old time U.S. gold collection that recently appeared in the Sarasota Florida area. The Osprey Collection strikes again with an exceptional offering.

This is the most frequently seen date among the Capped Bust Right quarter eagles. This example was recently sourced from an old time U.S. gold collection that arrived to market in the Sarasota Florida area. This Osprey Collection offering would make an admirable addition to a high-grade type set. Original surfaces are colored a medium green-gold. Strike is well executed with bold reverse devices including complete scroll definition and all letters in PLURIBUS UNUM being bold. Most of the arrow shafts are nicely separated. Abrasions are limited to three reverse lines to the left of the eagle and between the wings and eagle's neck. Based on visible wear and strike, I believe this piece was net graded to AU50 due to the reverse lines. Overall, a visually attractive example at a fair offer price.

Choice $360 New January 18! Peace Dollar Key Date, Ideal AU58 Collector Grade, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Choice Surfaces, Twin Lakes Collection. The Twin Lakes Collection consignments span Indian cents to Peace dollars and some occasional U.S. gold. Eye appeal and brilliant frosty luster are substantial and quite pleasing for a key date. Surfaces are minimally abraded and frankly, qualify for a near-gem rating. The new owner will be pleased as I've seen many AU58s with marked up fields. The fields on this offering are exceptionally clean and lustrous; worthy of a small premium as compared to the guides. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

Choice $1100 New January 18! Key Date, Frosty Luster, Faint Rose-Gold Skin, Well Struck, Twin Lakes Collection. A pretty candidate for the key date spot in a Peace dollar set. The AU58 grade, while providing bold devices with a hint of rub, is an excellent value point. This choice Twin Lakes Collection example is offered at $1100. As a comparison, the PCGS price guide jumps to $3350 in MS 62 and $4500 at MS63. Frosty luster is approaching a satiny texture due to die wear. A faint rose-gold skin covers both sides. Fields are essentially unabraded with only one mark on the cheek requiring mention. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

New January 18! Small Thin S, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Scarce in Mint State. Limited mintage of 455,000 with two different style mintmarks. This offering is the F-101 die pairing with a Small Thin S mintmark style previously used during 1867 and 1869. 1873-S F-101 strikes will be found in early and late die states, with the primary diagnostic being denticle erosion. This choice Mint State example was probably struck during the middle point of the dies' production usage. Surfaces are heavily frosted from micro granular metal flow lines. The resulting luster is brilliant with swirling cartwheels. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.0 (1998-2002) holder that remains clear to the coin's surfaces.

New January 17! Gem Type 1 Design, Radiant Frosty Luster, Light Orange-Gold Coloring, Fully Struck, Osprey Collection. Honestly, I thought this gem 1854 Type 1 G$1 would be approved at CAC. Surfaces are unabraded along with a complete strike. Light orange gold luster is radiant and pleasing with shimmering cartwheels under a light source. All the ingredients were present coupled with eye appeal consistent with the grade. With time, I'm becoming a believer that small denomination coinage in old standard NGC holders need to be reholdered before CAC submission. Frankly, the coins are difficult to see and appreciate in the old confining holders. GFRC images are very accurate as to coloring and the lack of marks expected at the gem grade level. Housed in early NGC holder with standard ring insert. A wonderful offering from an old time Sarasota Florida area collection.

Mintage for 1855 New Orleans branch mint strikes was a small 55,000 pieces. For gold type collectors seeking a branch mint Type 2 gold dollar, New Orleans strikes are popular based on finish and pricing. Doug Winter states that the 1855-O date is "moderately scarce n lower AU graees and visually pleasing AU58 coins are not easy to locate."

Choice $1625 New January 17! Low Mintage Issue, Greenish-Gold Coloring, Silky Luster, Choice for Grade, CAC Approval. Welcome to the 1893 New Orleans $10 eagle gold issue. This is an interesting date considering the low mintage of only 17,000 pieces. Availability has increased during the past several decades due to hoards reaching the market place. Piece from the those hoards are typically abraded. PCGS population currently standards at 133 at the MS61 grade level with another 169 at MS62 level. The certified population drops like a rock at MS63 with only thirteen graded. The challenge for collectors is locating choice example at the MS61-MS62 grade level. This means CAC approval and why GFRC added this choice example to inventory at the 2020 FUN show. CAC has approved a tiny fraction of those graded at PCGS and NGC; only eleven at MS61 grade. GFRC is pleased to be offering one of the eleven for your consideration. Regardless of the assigned grade, the fields a marginally abraded and pleasing. Coloring is greenish-gold as is typical for the issue. A choice example for collectors of earlier $10 eagle gold. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.

Choice $3650 New January 17! Low Mintage Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Orange-Gold Coloring, Thick Mint Frost, CAC Approval. 1915 San Francisco strikes are rare in Mint State as a result of mintage being limited to 59,000 pieces. Mint State pricing quickly approaches the high four figures and well into the five figures when graded choice. Examples graded choice AU with CAC approval become a compelling alternative for date and mintmark set collectors at less than half the price. GFRC is pleased to be offering a thoroughly pleasing 1915-S AU55 graded $10 Indian. This frosty example generates lustrous cartwheels during bright light inspection. Coloring is typical orange-gold rather than crusty copper-gold seen on those pieces repatriated from Europe. Surfaces are micro granular textured as we have come to expect from strictly original $10 Indian gold. Abrasions are very limited and add to overall appeal. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. Please note that CAC has only approved five pieces at the AU55 grade level for both services. Priced at CDN CAC price guide.

Gem $1350 New January 17! Repunched Date, Brilliant Reflective Luster, Peripheral Gold, CAC Approval, Newtown Collection. Only 15,100 dimes were struck during 1879. However, five sets of obverse and reverse dies were used. Three sets of dies were used for both business strikes and proofs including the F-104 die pairing which is offered here from the Newtown Collection. Nearly all business strikes are found with proof like or semi proof like surfaces. This is the case for this example. Both sides offer brilliant reflective luster from partial mirrored fields while the main devices are frosty. There is obvious repunching within the lower loop of the 8 digit consistent with the F-104a die pairing. A lovely peripheral gold arc highlights the nearly untoned centers.

A perfectly original example of the popular 1844 date that is often referred to as the Little Orphan Annie date due to 1930s promotion by Frank C. Ross. This offering is a consummate example of thick crusty natural patina. Under that patina is residual mint frost as seen throughout the reverse legend and within the denomination. Strike is typical for the date which means some weakness at the head, gown line, and throughout the reverse wreath and bow knot. PCGS grading is conservative based on wear alone. The residual mint frost suggests a higher grade. CAC was in agreement and provided green bean approval. Housed in fresh PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Gem $1600 New January 15! Few Known, Gem Original, Crusty Gray Patina, Grease Filled Dies, Conservatively Graded, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. During Greer's Liberty Seated Dime die variety research (prior to 1992), he located a high grade example of the 1867-S F-102 die pair that exhibits a very weak date. He suggested that a filled die could have produced this variety. Closer examination of other obverse device elements on Greer discovery coin (this offering) revealed additional irregular or missing features. Close inspection of GFRC images will reveal that the horizontal shield lines have inconsistent width from the left to right sides of the shield. The letters in UNITED are weakly struck with missing serifs or feet. An obverse die with residual surface grease could be a credible explanation for the inconsistent features of Variety 102a. The Greer coin become part of the Fortin collection and is the F-102a plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. This important specimen was sold into an LSCC member collection during 2018 and was purchased back during the 2020 FUN show. It now returns to the GFRC price list for a second appearance. A circulated gem that is housed in PCGS 6.0 holder with CAC approval. The PCGS label features the F-102a attribution.

A difficult but rewarding proof 1872 Liberty Seated dime die variety that has proven to be very elusive. Top 100 Varieties collectors should immediately take note as few example have arrived to market in the last two decades. Let's review the variety. First, the base of the 2 digit is mistakenly punched into the rock directly below the pendant. Secondly, the 7 and 2 digits have been repunched. Repunching is visible at the bottom of both digits. The variety was discovered by Kam Ahwash and first listed by Greer. It was added to the Top 100 Varieties set as entry #58 during 2004. As reference, an example of this variety, grading PCGS PF65 Cameo, brought $2760 at the Heritage Central States Signature auction during May 2004. This new example surfaced at the 2020 FUN show. A no question choice original example with sharply mirrored fields that emit serious reflective luster during bright light inspection. Fields are free of hairlines that are often seen on silver proofs at the PR63 grade level. Grading is definitely conservative. In hand inspection is recommended as GFRC photography is unable to capture the sharp reflective luster and typical bright light activated proof coloring. Housed in new PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC submission by GFRC. A potential prize for Seated dime die variety collectors.

New January 15! Underrated and Rare in Mint State, Steely Luster, Gun Metal Gray Patina, Complete Strike. There is no question that the 1872 San Francisco Mint issue is underrated and rare in Mint State. PCGS has graded all of one at the MS63 level with six in MS64. As further evidence of this date's rarity, PCGS population in all AU grades is a scant sixteen certified. Mintage is 190,000 but with a very low survival rate choice. GFRC purchased this rich steel-gray example at the 2020 FUN pre-show regardless of the NGC holder and lack of CAC approval. The reasons were straightforward. One look at this dime convince me of its choice status coupled with well known rarity. Strike is very well executed and complete. The steely fields offer nice reflective luster consistent with the assigned grade. Surfaces are completely unabraded. Bright light viewing is a joy as peripheral gold is exposures. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. This old holder has to go as it restricts angled light reaching the surfaces. A reholdering into modern edge view insert is suggested.

Original $1100 New January 15! No Mintmark, Capped Bust Medium Letters Reverse, Original Golden-Gray Patina, Single Obverse Field Line. . An example of the popular 1840 New Orleans strike with a leftover Capped Bust reverse die that lacks a mintmark. The reverse was previously used to strike Reeded Edge design coinage during 1839 where the mintmark was placed on the obverse. Demand is always high for this issue since required for both a Liberty Seated half dollar date and mintmark set along with early coinage type sets. This solid example appeared at the 2020 Winter FUN show. Please don't get hung up on the NGC Details designation. The sole scratch on this half is the short line in the upper ring field that is ancient and not distracting. I don't make a habit of adding Details certified coins to inventory via outright purchase. However, I liked this example immediately during inspection and believe it will fit nicely into budget conscious sets being assembled.

Choice $525 New January 14! Underrated in Mint State, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Deep Aquamarine Gold Coloring, CAC Approval, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. Liberty Seated Dime specialist have come to realize how challenging the 1877-S date is in Mint State. Regardless of a substantial mintage of 2,340,000 pieces, Mint State offerings are infrequently seen. As a collector, I can to realize this fact years ago and would purchase strictly original mint state example when located. This is the case with this lightly mirrored F-105 specimen that was purchased August 1998 at the ANA World's Fair of Money convention. CAC approval was secure several years ago. Surfaces and aquamarine-gold toning are similar to proof coins of that era. Housed in old NGC Fatty holder with CAC approval.

Choice $500 New January 13! Near Gem Original, Completely Struck, Multi-Color Iridescent Patina, Active Cartwheels, Accurately Graded. In 1856, arrows were eliminated from silver coinage as most heavier weight coins had been removed from circulation.

Regardless of the partial obverse denticles, this accurately graded example offers pretty iridescent gold and aquamarine toning along with active cartwheel luster. Other than the denticles, the balance of the coin is fully struck with rounded stars and complete wreath leaves. Surfaces are absolutely original and choice. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval. An ideal example for the collector assembling a complete set of Seated half dimes at the AU/MS level.

One sees many 1838 dated No Drapery quarters on the market while the 1839 date is much more challenging to locate. Poor strikes on No Drapery designs are also a substantial issue as few example are struck up enough to appreciate the artistry of Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. GFRC is pleased to offer this natural 1839 example that is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Surfaces are so crusty original with brown-gray patina and some ebony highlights mostly at right obverse rim. Strike is considered complete for the No Drapery design due to pervasive weakness. All stars have connected centrils and all reverse devices are deeply impressed. If one wishes to be exact, there is just a touch of weakness at the top of Liberty's head. Reverse horizontal bisecting die crack is bold and consistent with Briggs 1-A illustrations. Blemishes are limited to a few fully toned over random ticks that are of no consequence. Grading is accurate. A strong offering with CAC approval that deserves special attention by avid Seated quarter collectors. Taken in trade at the 2020 FUN show from a GFRC client.

Mintage is 3,416,000 but only ten have been certified at the PCGS AU58 grade level. That works out to a 3 PPM (parts per million) survival rate which is just crazy. In the MS62 through MS65 grades, more examples have been certified than AU58. This example features satiny luster that originates from faint granular mint frost on both sides. Surfaces are untoned, probably from a quick dip before certification. The reverse features die cracks throughout the legend.

New December 30! Missing Star 7, Crusty Gray Patina, Near Choice, Scarce New Orleans Date. 1851 New Orleans strikes become challenging in EF or better and rare in original AU/MS. This date has an interesting die state where star 7 is missing. The missing star 7 was the result of a minting error; most likely a greased filled die for a short period of time. The fact that star 6 and Liberty's facial details are not disturbed is amazing. The foreign material that filled the star 7 crevice on the die was localized leaving only a faint impression of the star at top most point. The offered example is strictly original with crusty gray patina and no abrasions worthy of mention. An important offering for the serious student of Liberty Seated Dime die varieties.

New December 30! Unlisted Die Pairing, Late Die State Repunched Date Obverse, New Reverse, Frosty Luster, Choice Surfaces. New Liberty Seated dime die pairings continue to be discovered. This offering is a newly identified pairing of a very late die repunched date obverse with a fresh reverse die. At this point, the obverse is heavily cracked consistent with the F-107b die state. During that die state, the reverse die develops a massive retain cud. It appears the reverse die was discarded and replace with a fresh working die. This new 1853 With Arrows die pairing will be labeled as F-126 and added to The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Variety Collectors before being shipped to the buyer. This piece is fully choice with thick frosty luster and faint gold hues.

New December 30! Rim Cud 6:00 - 7:00, Crusty Ebony Patina, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal. The 1853 With Arrows F-119 date and arrows punch placement is fairly similar to the Hubbed Arrows and Date master die that was implemented during the latter part of 1853. The F-119 obverse, to my knowledge, is always found with the rim cud below the left arrow and 18 digits in the date. This example again has the rim cud below the date and left arrow. Surfaces are crusty original with a thick ebony skin in the fields. Overall appearance is close to circulated cameo.

New December 30! Missing Right Arrow, Choice Original Surfaces, Excellent Example for Variety. 1874 F-114 is the poor man's version of the incredibly rare 1874 variety with missing left and right arrows. In this earlier die state, only the right arrow is missing/partial. The theories and potential explanation for the 1874 F-114 and F-106 die varieties is beyond the scope of this description. GFRC customers are encouraged to check the web-book for more details. This example is a near-gem at grade. Center gray coloring is nicely framed by peripheral ebony. Surfaces are unabraded and pleasing. An ideal offering for those interested in Liberty Seated dime die varieties.

Original $185 New December 30! Type 2 Reverse, Scarce 1876 Carson City Die Variety, Thick Crusty Gray Patina. The 1876-CC Type 2 reverse variety is scarce in any grade. Greer points out that "Surprisingly, at least five mint state Type II examples are known". Over the years, I have probably seen an even amount of circulated and mint state examples of this variety. Mint State pieces will be found either frosty or lightly proof like with most being frosty. During a 2013 conversation with Brian Greer, we discussed this observation. Brian commented that the proof like pieces could be a function of polished planchets as compared to frosty examples resulting from unpolished planchets. This circulated survivor features thick crusty patina on both sides. A no question original example given the residual verdigris. Ideal for inclusion in a Top 100 Varieties set.

The date, legends, and other peripheral design elements are strongly rendered, taking into account a normal amount of wear for the grade. Partial curl detail is visible on the obverse while the reverse eagle is moderately stronger with good wing feather definition.
