Original $245 New May 5! Late Die State Discovery Coin, Reverse Rim Cud, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. The 1871 F-108 die pairing will be found with a poorly hubbed obverse working die. Legend lettering was weakly transferred along with a marginally defined base. The date punch was properly sunk and dominates on the obverse. Reverse working die hubbing was typical with strong motifs. The AuburnNY Accordian consignor has located a late die state example with heavy reverse die crack from 5:30 up through the lower right wreath. A cud has formed on the rim at 5:30. This piece is considered a late die state discovery example and will be added to The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors online reference as F-108a. A nice original example with frosty granular surfaces as made. Original luster is retained and is pleasing during bright light inspection.

New May 4! Vertically Cracked Reverse, Terminal Die State, Gorgeous Original Reverse Toning, Cleaned Obverse, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. The finest 1838 F-103c example seen, period and end of story regardless of a cleaned and retoned obverse. This Mint State example illustrates the magnitude of the vertical reverse die crack, during the terminal die state, and the height of the raised die crack. I can only think of the 1839 Pie Shattered obverse as having comparable raised die crack metal. The reverse is absolutely gorgeous and 100% original with center gold and peripheral bullets; just exquisite! However, the obverse has been lightly polished and retoned leading to the difference in obverse versus reverse coloring and overall appearance. If the obverse had not been "enhanced", this piece would be priced multiples of the current asking price. This piece is for the die variety specialist.

Original $1100 New May 4! Huge O Reverse, Early Die State, Crusty Gray Patina, Typical Surfaces, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. The 1839-O F-108 Huge O die variety is well known among collectors. A leftover huge O reverse from 1838-O is paired with a used 1839-O obverse. Early strikes from the F-108 die pairing have reasonable definition of the stars 1 through 3 and the date punch. For whatever reason, the obverse is lapped removing much detail and leaving a weak date punch. The 1839-O huge O variety is available in lower circulated grades but becomes scarce in EF and rare in AU or better. Many strike are found with rough surfaces as made. The grading services will typically detail grade these pieces as cleaned or environmental damage, This AuburnNY Accordian Collection specimen is toned a crusty gray and is an earlier die pairing strike. It is straight graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. An important offering for the die variety specialist.

Original $1150 New May 4! Shattered Reverse #1, Crusty Original, Late Die State, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. A crusty original 1842-O F-103 offering that is also part of the Top 100 Varieties set. The F-103 die pairing takes place with a left over reverse die from 1841. During 1842 strikes, the reverse has degraded further with numerous die cracks and considerable weakness in the legend. It is likely that the reverse was polished or lapped considering the reduction in wreath and legend details when compared to the bolder reverse strikes on 1841-O Medium O examples. Many circulated 1842-O examples are seen with the legend being barely visible outside of the wreath leaves. This is the case for this late die state offering from the AuburnNY Accordian Collection. The reverse legend is barely visible with multiple die breaks. Surfaces are entirely crusty with some "dirt" at the reverse periphery. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert.

New May 4! Incredible Mint Bloom, Hammered Strike, Challenging Grade, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. Spectacular mint frost and a hammered strike are instantaneously noted when viewing this 1851 F-101 dime. Inspection reveals a micro-textured mint frost in the fields with every device detail fully impressed. Stars are in high relief along with surrounding die chips at stars 3 through 6. Reverse die cracks, though minor, are easily seen along with a raised die line through (UNI)TED. How this dime has survived so well preserved for 170 years takes some pondering. The F-101 die pairing comes with a reverse rotated 16 degrees clockwise. The description for the F-101 listing in The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors will be re-written based on the availability of this high end Mint State example. The previously seen "die erosion" is actually unpolished die lines. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Surfaces are natural toned with a golden-gray patina that also contains embedded rose hues. Most important is the fact that this offering was struck on a clipped planchet at obverse 7:30. The clip results in a triangular divot to the left of the rock and a partial strike at the upper reverse wheat grains. A super cool conversation piece that is fairly priced.

Rare at the EF grade level with limited mintage of 40,000 pieces. 1850 brought only the second year of Liberty Seated dollar production at the New Orleans mint. Q. David Bower opines the follows for the 1850-O issue; "Circulation was intended to be domestic and probably was primarily in the Mississippi Basin. At the time, river trade was burgeoning, and silver coins of all denominations were in strong demand. Walter H. Breen suggests that bullion dealers may have melted many 1850-O silver dollars." This new GFRC offering is a choice survivor with 100% original surfaces. Crusty gray patina covers both sides. Mild circulated cameo contrast makes for classic collector eye appeal.

The 1856-O F-105 die pairing moves from a fresh die to progressively rusted die states. This crusty example of the Repunched 56 Down die variety has a natural gray-brown skin. Strike is crisp on the obverse with well round lower leg. Reverse strike is typical with some weakness in the wreath leaves. Overall, a choice example that has been conservatively graded. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.6 (2013-2014) holder.

Choice $825 New April 5! Cracked Obverse and Reverse, Rotated Reverse Left 18 Degrees, Briliant Frosty Luster, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. The 1839 F-106c plate coin for The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors online reference and another of my favorite personal collection pieces that is difficult to release. Both side offer rich mint bloom and ample amounts of frosty luster. Strike is complete and highly detailed. The F-106c die pairing features a well worn and cracked die pair. Reverse die misalignment is 18 degrees left. The progressive obverse die crack at 12:00 from rim through Liberty's head down to neckline becomes stronger and more visible in the F-106c die state. Another significant die crack starts at the rim to the right of star 10 and joins stars 11 through 13. The reverse exhibits multiple cracks to the rim. I've not submitted this piece to CAC but will if not sold quickly. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.2 (2004-2005) holder.
