Choice Satiny Luster, Thick Old Album Toning, Better Date. Photographing darker toned Seated coinage for strong underlying luster is always a challenge. This is definitely the case for this deeply toned 1855 New Orleans struck half dime. Mintage for this date is a relatively high 600,000 but survival rates are very low. PCGS population report indicates a total of 21 coins slabbed at all AU grade levels with 9 each at the MS63, MS64 and MS65 grade levels. There is only one example certified as MS66. The offered example is fully struck with iridescent toning throughout obverse and reverse. Under bright light, an aquamarine obverse center is nicely framed with golden coloring surrounding the stars. The reverse exhibits a rose center that is surrounding by sky blue and finally, golden hues at the rim. As for blemishes, the obverse is entirely blemish free with a few wispy hairlines on the reverse above the denomination when the half dime is placed at an appropriate angle. Overall, this is a choice offering that will eventually be holdered. Consigned by an individual that wishes to remain outside the GFRC spotlight.

This 1834 JR-1 dime is perfect for a Dansco or Whitman album collection as a value acquisition. In hand, this example offers superior eye appeal with transparent gun metal blue tining. It is also accurately graded. However, under a 10x loop inspection, an "A" has been scratched in the obverse below Liberty's chin. This AU53 example is not perfect but priced accordingly.

Huge O Obverse Paired With Small O Reverse, Original Medium Gray, Marks, Indiana Collection. After 25 years of collecting and researching Liberty Seated dimes, I can say with much certainty that the 1839 New Orleans F-107 die pairing, with small O mintmark, is scarcer than that of Huge O reverse strikes. One infrequently sees this variety and most known will have problems. This offering, from the Indiana Collection, is strictly original but does have scattered lines throughout the obverse. These lines are old and fully toned over. The reverse is blemish free. Pricing is fair given the overall quality and rarity.

Both in hand and bright viewing are similar and consistent with images. After inspecting nearly all 1833 capped bust halves seen in EF or better, most are seen with varying degrees of die rust. I added this choice example to inventory since being struck by dies that are in perfect condition. A detailed 10x inspection reveal do traces of die pitting, rather the strike is crisp with sharp curls and all eagles nicely defined. I would recommend this AU example for those seeking an original Capped Bust quarter for type set that has a story and some character. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Please note that the light obverse area at 11:00 is typical lighting reflections during photography.

The Montana Collection is new to the GFRC community and presents a top quality array of early silver type coins. All were purchased from two sources during the past ten years; Aspen Park Rare Coins and HLRC. Both dealers are well known for offering top quality coins. This only Barber coin from the Montana Collection is this amazing 1894-S Barber quarter that is an outright gem. Incredible satiny cartwheel luster tickles the eyes when viewed under a light source. Obverse toning is about 90% transparent leading to vibrant luster that accentuates aquamarine, sky blue, rose and gold colors. The colors are intermixed rather than banded and probably the result of being exposed to a felt or velvet material in a coin cabinet. The reverse patina is thicker and less transparent to the underlying luster but still the cartwheel effect is active. Conservatively graded and housed in old PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. A better early date in the Barber quarter series and worthy of a sophisticated collection. The current PCGS guide price is $1250 and this piece is heads and shoulders above those selling recently in the high three figures at auction.

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.

Letís start with the die variety being WB-7 with heavily rusted reverse that has been lightly lapped along with a lapped obverse. Device features are reduced resulting in conservative grading at assigned EF40 level. I would grade this strictly original example as full EF45. Surfaces are covered with thick gray-rose patina and are blemish free. Then there is the PCGS holder. This is definitely an early 1990s old green holder with bar code. However the label is full blue color with no signs of paper fading or transitioning from original green color. This label looks to be have printed on original blue paper stock and not green. Could this holder be worth more than the housed coin? There is much to consider for this 1843-O Seated half from Jim Poston consignment.

New September 28! Scott Restrike, CSA W-13 Base Coin, Choice Original Mint State Reverse, Substantial Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Obverse Mount Removed, Freshly Graded, Susquehana Collection. Consignor Price Reduction - GFRC is incredibly pleased to be offering one of the 500 Scott Restrikes but more importantly, the CSA reverse is choice original uncirculated. Both the CSA Reverse and obverse exhibt frosty cartwheel luster. For numismatic curiosity, the base coin's obverse was studied and easily attributed as an early die state CSA W-13 (Bisecting Date Crack) without signs of the die crack. The date position on CSA W-13 is unique and lends itself to a straightforward attribution. Offered here is an Scott Restrike with a choice original mint state CSA reverse coupled with a CSA W-13 base coin that was well preserved for years due to a reverse mount. At some point, the obverse mount was removed and the tooling remnants are most difficult to see on the PCGS TruView image. CSA Reverse strike is hammered with deeply impressed details. Reverse surface is choice with each die nuance available under a 10x loupe. Original silver mint frost is evident with mottled gray toning. Freshly graded by PCGS and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. This Scott Restrike has been off the market since the early 1980s with no auction records. After careful consideration, an $8500 asking price has been established that balances the choice reverse preservation state, the CSA W-13 base coin and the obverse removed mount. An important historical aritfact that is worthy of careful consideration. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with Genuine UNC Details - Damage certification.

Final CSA Issue, Speared Olive Bud, Original Surfaces, Gun Metal Gray Patina, Residual Steely Luster, Fairly Graded, Under Construction Collection . Speared Olive Bud reverse, CSA Issue. The last die pairing struck under authority of the Confederate States of America. This die variety is easily attributed due to two parallel lines through the upper olive bud. This reverse was first paired with the Bisecting Crack at Date reverse and then afterwards with Obverse 1; first employed for Union strikes. Die erosion at Liberty's foot is evident for the variety and on the offered example. This Under Construction Collection example offers steely surfaces covered with classic gun metal gray patina on the obverse and lighter silver gray shades on the reverse. Strike typical on the obverse, since late state Union obverse, and full on the reverse. This piece performs well under a light source with plenty of residual luster. If TPG certification is your goal, then don't hesitate to purchase as I guarantee this W-15 will be placed in a holder. An important piece of Civil War history as struck during the final days of the New Orleans mint during April 1861.

Choice Original, Active Cartwheel Luster, CAC Candidate, Eye Appeal, Osprey Collection. This choice 1902 $20 double eagle is superior for the assigned grade and deserves special consideration. Why? Let's visit the PCGS population reports for that answer. There are (214) graded MS62 dropping to only (80) in MS63 with price guide jumping from $4500 to $11500. Many of those in the MS62 population are regrade attempts so my guess is that the MS62 population may be closer to (150). Locating a borderline MS63 for MS62 money should be the collector's challenge in obtaining maximum value and resale opportunity. This Osprey offering is one of the borderline MS63 pieces.
