Choice $550 New October 18! Mirrored Fields, Gun Metal Gray-Rose Patina, Unabraded Surfaces, Ideal Type Coin. A choice original 1842 Liberty Seated that would be ideal for a type set. The mirrored fields still retain their integrity and offer midl reflective luster under a light source.

Most importantly, the fields are entirely unbraded resulting in satisfying eye appeal. I can imagine studying the lovely Seated for years and never grow tired of its beauty.

The Briggs 2-B die pairing is the best opportunity to locate a fully struck specimen, as is the case with this Titan Collection offering. The other issue with the date is availability in AU grade of better. This date becomes quite scarce in AU and infrequently offered. This lovely example is toned a grayish-blue with embedded rose.

Liberty Seated half dollar specialists recognize the fact that 1841 Philadephia strikes are a better date in the series. I pulled this original example from Dr. Peterson's Dansco album for PCGS grading and was disturbed when this piece returned in an AU Details holder. There are 100s of poorer quality Seated halves in straight graded PCGS holder as compared to this example. The issue facing super conservative PCGS grading is the recovery action. Does GFRC crack out and try again at Dr. Peterson's expense of sell it as is? In hand viewing should convince most collection that this piece is technicall original. Surfaces are toned an even light gray with steely reflective luster. Reverse offers old album toning arc. I would grade this piece as full AU50 and will discount to EF price level.

The New Orleans Mint was notorious for poorly struck coins in the Liberty Seated series, but these problems were largely resolved by 1892 with the introduction of Barber coinage.

New October 12! Price Reduction October 12, 2019 - Lustrous, Brilliant, Twin Lakes Collection.. Representing the last year of the Morgan dollar, the 1921 almost stands as its own type, separated by nearly two decades from the last Morgans struck in 1904. Indeed, the original hubs were destroyed in 1910 and the engraver George Morgan had to recreate these for the 1921 issue. The 1921s thus exhibit shallower relief than the earlier coins. Other differences exist, and it is well worth comparing with a glass in hand. This example is brilliant with just a touch of golden toning in the right obverse field, lustrous and technically only limited by a few cheek ticks.

This lovely 1876 example just spoke to me as something that would match my own collecting goals. Surfaces are completely unabraded with a reasonable strike.

New October 9! Important Key Date Offering, Light Rose-Gray Coloring, Cleaned and Retoned, Oregon Beaver Collection. The 1897-O Barber half dollar date has been historically seen as one of the series' key dates. The issue's mintage is a low 632,000 pieces and comparable to the 1896-O and 1901-S. In circulated grades, this is one of the most difficult date to locate. The Oregon Beaver Collection has just released an AU example that unfortunately has seen an old cleaning followed by being retoned a rose-gray. The cleaning was not abrasive (no hairlines) but did manage to "dull" the natural silver that one expects from an AU Barber half. Overall strike is well executed. On a pure wear basis, I would assign an AU53 grade. An ideal key date value coin for collectors seeking to fill that challenging hole in this Dansco or Whitman album sets.

Choice $275 New October 9! Rich Orange-Gold Patina, Frosty Luster, Where Is The Wear?. If there is wear on this lustrous 1852 Type 1 Liberty Head, I honest can't see it. Rather this piece has been net graded as done in the "earlier" days of TPG grading. This piece is in Mint State but has several reverse micro lines that appear during 10x loupe inspection and under a bright light. PCGS net graded this piece to AU55 as a result. In hand and bright light eye appeal is well above average due to bold frosty luster and rich orange-gold patina. Strike is also complete. I'm still giving this $1 gold piece a Choice quality rating given the assigned grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder with CAC approval.

However, this pre-Civil War date saw heavy circulation with a low present day survival rate. This date is rare in Mint State with the highest PCGS graded being MS62. Most collectors must settle for an AU specimen where availability is not so acute. The Oregon Beaver Collection has just released this near-choice original specimen that should not last long on the GFRC price list.

Surfaces are colored a uniform greenish-gold with limited wear. On a wear basis, this offering is full EF45 or a bit better.

With Drapery Type, Thick Crusty Gray-Gold Patina, Choice Original Surfaces, Gorgeous!. 1839 brought the introduction of Christian Gobrecht's Liberty Seated design to the half dollar denomination. The first year of issue saw Drapery and No Drapery strikes with only a limited modification of the master hub. The Drapery version is more common but remains challenging when perfectly original and well struck. Please allow me to offer this wonderfully original 1839 specimen that is covered with thick natural grey-gold patina. Regardless of the thick skin, residual luster is readily available during bright light inspection. Surfaces are choice while strike is better than average though not complete. Any 1839 Seated half found with a complete strike is a special event. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.

New September 28! Reverse Rim Cud, R6 Rarity, Light Gray Patina, Typical Obverse 1 Strike, Conservative Grading, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. PCGS graders sure have a difficult time grading 1865-S F-101, F-102 and F-102a dimes due to weak strikes. In many cases, the graders are unable to discern the different between wear and strike leading to very conservative grading. This is the case for the 1865-S F-102a plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors or commonly know as the web-book. I grade this piece full EF. The 186-5 F-102a designation captures is a late die state Reverse B that is badly degraded included completely eroded denticles. A die crack at 9:00 to the left wreath is visible. A large rim cud has formed at 12:00. Noted Liberty Seated author and dealer, Brian Greer, first listed the variety and late die state on a price list in early 2005. Luckily, I was able to locate a higher circulated grade example for the web-book later that year at a Boston Bay State Show. Seen that time, I have not seen another example. This die state definitely warrants an R6 rarity rating in VF or better. Please note there is an ancient line on the obverse through Liberty's left facing arm and chest. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

Choice $650 New September 28! Double Die Reverse, Proof Like Fields, Rich Aquamarine-Gold Toning, Hammered Strike. Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. Wow! This lovely 1888-S dime was purchased way back in April 1992 from the Stack's William Moore Salle -Lot 705. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder without CAC attempt. This offering is special due to proof like fields on both sides. Strike is hammered with all devices boldly defined. An intermixed aquamarine-gold patina covers both sides with the aquamarine being dominant. Then there is the double die reverse die variety that adds more charm. The F-103 reverse is a doubled die with the doubling being significant above the letters (ONE). Traces of die doubling can be found on the outer wreath elements on the left side of the die. Kam Ahwash commented in his Encyclopedia that "The entire reverse is doubled strongly". This statement should be re-examined as the doubling is primarily seen above the letters of the denomination. The Ahwash plate coin is also in my collection and its die state matches this plate coin exactly. Utilized as the 1888-S F-103 plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors.

Brilliant devices offer a stunning contrast with the surrounding toning on this near-gem, CAC-approved Barber quarter. Although not a proof, the cameo description is apt, so sharply have the hands of time outlined the central devices on this coin, which are neatly framed by deep maroon and blue-green fields. PCGS has certified only 16 pieces finer, and it is likely the aesthetic appeal of the present example exceeds that of a number of the higher-graded coins. This is eye-candy at its finest.

New September 24! Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Choice Original, Labelman87 Collection, Semi-key. The 1913-S is one of the first coins examined in any Barber quarter set, and for good reason. Along with the 1896-S and 1901-S, this is part of the "big three" San Francisco Mint keys to the set, with mintages far lower than any other issue in the series. The Labelman87 collection consistently presents quality for the grade, and clearly no compromise was made in selecting this CAC-approved example. Surfaces feature light reddish-gold tones on both sides with more intense blue-green shades on the reverse. A few lines are seen in Liberty's portrait while the fields are remarkably smooth for the grade. PCGS has certified just 34 uncirculated pieces, but the more compelling aspect here is quality, with only two CAC-approved pieces at this level and nine higher. For a collector pursuing a CAC-approved Barber quarter set, this is an exceptional opportunity. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) holder.

New September 24! Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Superb Gem, Labelman 87 Collection, Ex. Hayes, CAC. Although the Labelman87 collection primarily features AU58 examples, this coin makes it easy to see why rules should occasionally be broken. Previously from the collection of congressman Jimmy Hayes, this example exhibits immaculate surfaces and pleasing toning. Underlaid with medium rose shades, gold-green hues appear on both sides, most deeply in the area beneath the eagle. Gem luster is unbroken and easily radiates from beneath the toning. The light halos evident around the stars and letters are referred to as "pull away toning" and are a hallmark of originality. Congressman Hayes remains a regular attender of coin shows and always enjoys seeing "old friends" from his collection when collectors choose to share them with fellow numismatists.

Gem $4350 New September 24! Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Gem Original, Labelman87 Collection, Near Condition Census. This is one of the more significant pieces in the Labelman87 collection, a near-gem uncirculated example that approaches condition census. Its desirability is enhanced as a branch Mint issue, as most collectors of the period lived closer to the east coast and were satisfied with Philadelphia coins. The toning is brilliant with golden touches at the rims, and the surfaces are nearly perfect, apart from a few ticks hidden in Liberty's cap. The luster is uninterrupted and radiates a convincing cartwheel as the piece is tilted. PCGS has certified 12 finer coins, but the situation is more nuanced when quality for the grade is considered, and CAC has approved only four pieces in higher grades.

This gem 1907-S quarter reveals everything one would expect at the MS65 grade level - pristine surfaces, booming luster, and sharp detail. Light streaks of maroon traverse the obverse with a more scattered pattern on the reverse. This is a slightly better date in the series, but at the gem uncirculated level the situation is much more challenging. PCGS reports 17 examples finer, many no doubt representing resubmissions, while CAC has certified only six pieces in higher grades, more likely a true reflection of its rarity at the MS65 level. Remarkably, CAC has approved only six coins in all circulated grades combined, making a Mint state piece a more natural selection for this date and mintmark combination.

Choice $5850 New September 24! Core Date & Mintmark Collection - Choice Original, Labelman87 Collection, Semi-key. This is a much better O-mint issue in the Barber quarter series, with even the lowest graded coins valued at substantial premiums. This represents the final year of Barber quarter production at the New Orleans Mint, and the only O-mint coin in the series with a mintage of less than a million pieces. This particular example is evenly toned in medium shades of steel blue and violet, with light crust in a few of the reverse letters. The fields are nearly perfect as one would expect for the assigned grade. The strike is typical for the issue, and there is some weakness in the lower portion of the shield and surrounding feather detail. PCGS has graded a mere nine pieces numerically finer, and, with some of these no doubt representing resubmissions, this piece is a condition census candidate. A lovely coin and a rare opportunity, as these New Orleans pieces simply were not saved to the extent of their Philadelphia counterparts. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.

Along with the 1897-S, the 1914-S is considered a semi-key in the series and desirable in all grades. This is a gray toned example surrounded by an obverse maroon halo, while the reverse shades are more concentrated beneath the eagle. A few hairlines are seen in the truncation of the bust, but overall detail is solid for the grade, and there is never a substitute for rarity. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
