Obverse is toned a uniform gray-gold with the gold being richly displayed at the periophery. Reverse coloring is light gray-rose. The likely reasons for the Details grade are some faint horizontal lines in the reverse fields and a toning color difference with the obverse. Strike is boldly executed and pleasing.

Liberty Seated half dime collectors infrequently see the 1864-S date as mintage was a tiny 90,000 pieces. The rough west coast conditions left few survivors for present day collectors. PCGS population is only nine in AU55 and three at the highly collectable AU58 grade. GFRC is pleased to offer one of the three AU58s, freshly graded from Dr. Peterson's Dansco album collection. This piece has not seen a CAC attempt. Light rub on the highest wear points and frosty luster cartwheel are the two primary highlights that should be evident once images are carefully inspected. Faint gold toning on both sides decorates heavy mint frost. A few stray micro lines hold this one back for full Choice Original quality rating. But again consider the very low available population.

Gem $13250 New December 11! Gem Original, Shimmering Frosty Luster, Incredible Eye Appeal, Osprey Collection. Collecting Liberty Seated dollars is a substantial undertaking. The surviving populations are quite low in AU and Mint State outside of the omnipresent 1859-O and 1860-O dates along with the generally available 1840s dates. Locating Philadelphia struck specimens from the 1850s presents a keen challenge. During early 2018, a complete Seated dollar set was being broken up with this 1853 dollar offering having some of the best eye appeal among the set offerings. This gorgeous 1853 specimen was purchased by Dan White at that time as a well preserved specimen with eye catching frosty cartwheel luster. Surfaces are lightly toned with a thin gold skin that is more apparent on the lower left obverse along with date punch area. Bright light viewing is an absolutely joy as few have been seen with this amount of natural luster and overall eye appeal. Placing a 10x loupe on the surfaces of such a large denomination piece may appear excessive. The inspection revealed only a few field ticks and a single bag mark. Being this critical is important for full disclosure. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.0 (1998-2002) holder with standard ring insert and barcode on the back aside label. CAC approval must have been a foregone conclusion on this amazing specimen. From the Dan White Collection of Liberty Seated dollar being divested via GFRC.

Choice $4575 New December 11! Rare San Francisco Date, Classic Gray-Gold Patina, Residual Steely Luster, Historically Significant, Osprey Collection. 1859 San Francisco struck dollars were limited to a mintage of only 20,000 piece. The mintage was destined for export trade to the Orient. Q. David Bowers writes extenisvely on this date and points out that Chinese merchants preferred the Mexican dollar as compared to the U.S. Liberty Seated dollar for trade. Bowers indicates that nearly all of the 1859 mintage was exported and melted leaving few survivors for present day collectors. GFRC is pleased to be offering an original example with natural gray-gold patina. This example retains mint frosty in the protected areas, especially on the reverse surrounding the legend and primary center device. A careful 10x loupe inspection reveals some micro hairlines in the obverse field along with mint frost surrounding the stars.

Winesteven Collection. 1873 brought a unique occurrence in American coinage with three different dollar designs being produced; Trade dollar, Seated dollar, and the tiny Gold dollar. Mintage of the 1873 Seated dollar was a healthy 293,000 strikes before coinage was terminated due to the Act of April 12, 1873. The Liberty Seated dollar design had come to its end of life.

Cleaned $685 New December 9! Price Reduction December 9, 2019. Union Administration, W-1 Die Pairing, Brilliant Surfaces, Cleaned, Typical Strike, R6 Rarity. . The W-1 die pairing produced the initial Union Administration strikes during January 1861. The following month, mint authority transferred to the State of Louisiana. Though the total Union mintage is estimated to be 330,00 by Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert, Union strikes are rarities in today's market. This offering is one of the few handled by GFRC. There is a lack of published research that explains the difficulty in locating Union strikes as compared to Louisiana and CSA counterparts. However, a personal conversation with a high level mint employee produced the theory that most pieces were exported to Europe during early 1861 for Confederate States weapons purchases. This example has bold AU details, a sharp scroll, and reverse eagle feathers. Strike is typical with weakness at the gown line and eagle legs and claws. This piece has seen a mechanics cleaning with faint hairlines throughout the obverse and reverse. Regardless, the eye appeal remains decent. Since Union strikes are so difficult to locate and under strong collector demand, this example would be an ideal filler in a complete 1861-O die variety set.

A superb example of the 1820 O-108 die pairing with boldly doubled olive leaves on the reverse. The O-108 pairing is listed by PCGS within the Square 2, Large Date, No Knob variety category. CAC has done the same with an EF45 population of only three for that variety category. Let's focus on this offering as it is sweet. My first impression was an AU grade given the steely luster and active cartwheels. However PCGS assigned an EF45 grade. Studying this piece under a 10x loupe brings the explanation of another coin being graded on strike and not wear. The obverse stars are completely struck with high relief and rounded points. However, the center curls are weak. Reverse strike is uniform and complete. Granular mint frost surrounds the stars, date punch and entire reverse. Wear is seen on the center obverse leading to the assigned grade. Coloring is in hand gray with blue and peripheral gold under a light source. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Unabraded surfaces warrant a Choice Original quality rating. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

New December 6! Classic Green-Gold Eye Appeal, Residual Reflective Luster, Conservative Grading, CAC Approval. The longer I spend studying and handling U.S. gold, there are two market segments that I find especially appealing. The first is heavily mirrored gold. The second is early gold with classic green-gold or heavy orange-red gold patina. When either gold finish is located at a competitive price, it is placed in inventory. This is the case for a wonderful 1847-O $10 eagle purchased at the Winter Baltimore show. Surfaces scream originality with thick green-gold patina. Bright light inspection reveals bold reflective fields. Surfaces are fully choice with minimal abrasions. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

Crusty original is the operative word for this scarce No Arrows offering. Dark intermixed aquamarine-rose patina covers fields and device protected areas on the obverse. Reverse toning is a base light gray with peripheral olive-gold. Strike is complete and especially hammered on the reverse. The 1853 No Arrows date was a short lived issue as the Philadelphia mint transitioned quickly to the Arrows and Rays design, early in 1853, to denote a lower silver weight planchet. Mintage is reported at 44,200 and I suspect that many were caught up with silver arbitrage along with quarters and halves dated 1851 and 1852. Suvivors are few with PCGS population in all EF and AU grades totaling only twenty-four pieces. Some examples were saved by East Coast collectors resulting in another twenty mint state pieces in the PCGS report. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Choice $5450 New December 5!

Most surviving 1896-S quarters grade VF or lower, making this XF coin elusive and highly sought-after. This choice example retains a fair amount of steely luster that is a surprise and pleasing. Toning is intermixed olive-gray with peripheral deep blues and gold on obverse and reverse. Conservative grading appears to be at hand given the raised headband, bold wingtips and residual luster. Sure, everyone wants CAC approved examples these days but the total population in both EF grade is (1) one! Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This example was sent to CAC and did not pass as the toning is not uniform crusty gray that has become synonymous with CAC stickers. Those collectors waiting for a CAC approved EF may be waiting for years. This offering is awfully nice at the grade and would fit well in a higher grade circulated set.

New December 5! December 2019 Price Reduction! Choice Original, Gun Metal Gray Blue Patina, Well Struck, Conservative Grading, Union Bridge Collection. Strike variability was a substantial issue for the early Philadelphia mint on large denomination coinage. Obverse relief was a problem area and even today, grading Draped Bust halves can be challenging. I mention these thoughts to frame the description of this lovely 1807 half dollar from the Union Bridge Collection. Let's start with the surfaces; strictly original and choice with no blemishes to discuss. Early PCGS grading is quite conservative as this half must be graded by the reverse and not the obverse due to shallow relief. Please check the eagle's wing tips and boldly defined shield lines on the reverse to validate that VF25 is more than fair as the assigned grade. Housed in PCGS old green holder. The old green holder label uses the early PCGS designation of DRAPE BUST and not Draped Bust as is currently seen on new holders.

New December 4! Special 15% Price Reduction - Choice Original Surfaces, Tough 1852 Philadelphia Date, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes.

Original $5150 New November 27! Rare Open 3 Variety, No Arrows Date, Near-Choice Original Surfaces, Natural Gray Toning, Affordable Price Point. The 1873 Open 3, No Arrows Liberty Seated half is a challenging rarity. In A Guidebook of Liberty Seated Coins, Q. David Bowers writes the following concerning this date, "Mintage figures were estimated years ago as 587,000 Closed 3 coins and 214,200 Open 3 coins from the Philadelphia Mint before arrows were added besides the date. These figures seem to have been guesses and seem to have no validity.....With a collective total of 801,800 coins of both varieties produced from five total dies (a single set for Open 3), one might speculate that the actual Open 3 mintage is much lower and below estimated mintage. Beyond that, it is believed that many of these were melted upon institution of the new weight standard that took effect April 1, 1873, perhaps accounting for rarity and high value." This offering has near-choice original surfaces that are covered with a medium gray patina. Strike is typical with residual visibility of die pits throughout Liberty's upper body area. There are a few ancient marks in the right obverse field mentioned for accuracy. The reverse fields are unabraded. This in only the second 1873 No Arrows Open 3 handled by GFRC as a testament to its rarity. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder and ready for placement in an advanced Liberty Seated half dollar collection.

Strike is hammered with high relief stars and complete head and hair details along with deeply impressed reverse devices The FS-301 Overdate attribution is noteworthy as to the variety and sure to appeal to advanced Liberty Seated half dollar specialists. The upper loop of the under type 6 digit is clearly visible on the flag of the final 7 in the date. There has been ongoing speculation as to the potential technical mechanism that would explain the presence of the earlier 6 digit. The same situation has been document on a single 1877 dime obverse employed at the Carson City mint. Whatever the mechanism, there clearly is evidence of another digit atop the second 7 and most likely an errant 6. This example offers exceptional quality and eye appeal for the variety.

At GFRC, we handle a fair number. This date was particularly difficult to source when emphatic on offering complete strikes; most will have some points of weakness. This excellent F-107 example meets my three criteria sourcing requirement; originality, complete strikes and eye appeal. One immediately notes the absolutely hammered strike throughout obverse and reverse. Stars are bold and rounded as is Liberty's head details well formed gown line. The reverse wreath leaves and veins are deeply impressed. The piece is no question original with a rich layer of mint frost throughout Liberty and the shield. Fields are also frosty with no disturbances. Toning is subtle with faint gold mostly at the obverse and reverse rim. There is bold cartwheel luster than one would expect from a Seated dime at the MS66 grade level. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. This lovely 1859 dime is also the F-107 plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. A strong candidate for individual building a high grade set of Liberty Seated dimes.

New November 21! Initial San Francisco Strike, So Rare this Choice, Heavy Reverse Verdigris, West Texas Collection. GFRC is most pleased to be offering a strictly original 1855 San Francisco struck specimen. Natural gray patina covers both sides along with some heavy reverse verdigris. Grading is conservative as all seven letters in LIBERTY are visible during bright light inspection. Initial production year mintage was only 129,950 with all moving into circulation due to high demand for small change in the California mining regions. Definitely worthy of the asking price. Housed in ANACS old white holder. Please don't let the holder discourage a purchase. I guarantee that this piece will cross into a PCGS holder at current grade. I believe this piece is closer to VF20 than Fine15.

Original $850 New November 20! Underrated Date at Offered Grade, Natural Gray Patina, Obvious Reverse Strike Doubling. Ex Tenafly Collection. 1868 Seated dime San Francisco strikes are slowly securing the recognition deserved. This date has been underrated for years and locating any example in problem free AU or better is cause for celebration. Mintage is a low 260,000 with PCGS population report showing only eleven graded in all AU grades (AU50, AU53, AU55 and AU58). Considering PCGS has been in operation since 1986, that is one example graded every three years. Surprisingly, this date is more available in mint state with twenty pieces graded. The offered example is strictly original with classic gray patina and residual luster that is stronger on the reverse. Overall strike is better than average given this piece was produced from early die state dies. The reverse exhibits heavy strike doubling at the lower ribbon ends and mintmark. Interestingly, Breen listed this strike doubling as #3347 in his Encyclopeida and commented, "1868-S Doubled rev. die, Very rare. Doubling obvious on ribbons and parts of the wreath." Research by Fortin has proven that the "doubling" is actually strike doubling and not working die doubling during hubbing process. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
