As indicated in the GFRC images, this lovely example offers bold devices from a hammered strike. Cartwheel luster is vibrant with frosty textures and so pleasing. Transparent lavendar-rose patina covers both sides with lighter shades on the reverse. Dies are also heavily clashed as is so often seen on well struck with stars specimens.

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.

Talk about a strictly original 1834 Capped Bust dime with attractive toning and pleasing bright light performance. 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. From the Gansu Collection which was personally assembed by Gerry Fortin for a Chinese collector the 2011-2013 timeframe.

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.

Repunched Date, Frosty Golden Luster, Hammered Strike, Conservatively Graded, Indiana Collection. A bold and brilliant example of the popular 1849 repunched date die variety. For years, this variety was listed as 1849/8 overdate but was questioned by Greer and later debunked when writing the "web-book" as remnants of the first date punch are clealy evident in the upper loops of the 8 and 9 digits. This repunching is bold and well displayed within the date digits of this eye appealing AU58 example. Brilliant luster remains in harmony with peripheral burnt gold on both sides. Strike is hammered and adds to the desireability. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s. An old time Liberty Seated dime that has been in the Indiana Collection since 1994; purchased directly from Brian Greer.

On F-106b, a portion of the reverse die is separated resulting in a retained cud between the rim, the right stem end and the lower right wreath. On lower grade specimens, the A in AMERICA appears to be completely eliminated as a result of the broken die. However, on this VF example, the letters AMER(ICA) are still being struck and sitting on raised metal that is easily prone to wear. Surfaces are strictly original with uniform gray patina. There is an obverse rim bruise at 9:00, but then again, less than a handful are known at this time. An important Liberty Seated dime die variety offering from the Indiana Collection.

Double Die Reverse, Original Gun Metal Gray Patina, Early Die State, Typical Weak Strike, Accurately Graded, Indiana Collection. A spectacular doubled die error on the reverse of an 1872 dime was discovered by Dave Thomas during April 1999 and published in the Gobrecht Journal by Tom DeLorey in July 2003. The reverse die was hubbed twice with the second hubbing being rotated approximately 175 degrees from the initial hubbing. The importance of this doubled die error lead to its inclusion in the Top 100 Varieties set during 2004. This example, from the Indiana Collection, is perfectly original and so typical of the F-105 variety. Surfaces are covered with uniform gun metal gray patina. Strike is weak but so typical for F-105 examples. Nearly all will be found with flat or partial heads along with weakness in the upper reverse wheat grains. This piece is accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Yet another Liberty Seated die variety duplicate from the Indiana Collection. Also, a semi key date in the Seated Dime Top 100 Varieties set.

One of the key dates in the Top 100 Liberty Seated Dime Varieties set and in the condition census for preservation state. One of the finest examples of the Doubled Die Obverse F-103 variety (Cherrypickers' FS-101) struck with bold die doubling at the shied. The right portion of Liberty's shield exhibits a wide and dramatic double impression, rotated 20į clockwise. Additional die doubling is seen below the scroll and within the lower shield. A misplaced digit in the dentils, below the 73 digits, may also be present as well, but it is much less prominent and pales in comparison to the spectacular die doubling. The offer example has probably been dipped and presents untoned mirrored fields and frosty silver devices. The assigned MS61 grade is accurate given faint micro lines in the left obverse field seen under a 10x loupe. Regardless, this is one of the three finest F-105 examples known. The other two are the Simpson and Gardner examples, both graded PCGS AU58 CAC, followed by the Fortin PCGS AU55 specimen. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert.

New December 23! Price Reduction Through FUN Show! Choice Original, Gray Patina with Golden Highlights, Accurately Graded, Outback Collection. A superior example of the 1825/4(2) date that is as choice as one could desire. All 1825 dated Capped Bust quarters (mintage 168,000) were struck during the last month of that year. Erratic supplies of the silver bullion incoming to the Philadelphia mint resulted in unpredictable striking and releases. This surviving example is perfectly original with natural gray patina and embedded golden hues that appear during bright light inspection. I went back and forth between a Choice or Gem quality rating. Choice was selected as there is an ancient micro line on the obverse that can seen with 10x loupe. Otherwise, a Gem quality rating would have been assigned as all other aspects of the coin are superior. A quick check of CoinFacts indicates a reasonable surviving population at the VF30 level but few auction records. This is probably the results of choice examples being closely held in advanced collections or trading directly among collectors. Accurately graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder along with CAC approval. CAC approval was a foregone conclusion on this piece.

New January 17! Special 20% Price Reduction - Choice Original, 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. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Gorgeous Aquamarine-Blue Toning, Hammer Strike, Conservative Grading, Montana Collection. 10% Price Reduction October 8, 2018. 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.

New January 6! FUN Show Price Reduction, WB-1, Rare Small Date Obverse, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Golden-Brown Patina, Oregon Beaver Collection. One of the challenging die variety rarities in the Liberty Seated half dollar series that is listed in the Redbook and on major price guides. Bill Bugert, in his Federal Register series on Liberty Seated half dollars, indicates that, "the first two months mintage, January and February, are generally accepted to include the small date varieties (WB-1, WB-2) althought the initial 1842 delivery of those coins on February 28, 1842 included some coins dated 1841. The remaining months are of the medium date mintage." On the WB-1 Small Date variety, the reverse strike is weak with poorly defined left leg, arrow feathers and left/right claws. This characteristic is present on the Oregon Beaver specimen. On the offered example, fields are lightly mirrored and covered with a transparent skin of gray-gold patina. Surfaces are essentially blemish free at the assigned VF35 grade level with only a small mark by Liberty's foot being noted. Obverse strike is also weak resulting in overall grading being conservative. Based on wear, this example is a full EF40. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important opportunity for serious Liberty Seated half dollar collectors to acquire an R5 date and reverse pairing die variety.

New December 3! 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. An important historical aritfact that is worthy of careful consideration. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with Genuine UNC Details - Damage certification.

Uniform strike is seen throughout obverse and reverse; in particular the lower reverse shield and surrounding devices. Surfaces marks are consistent with the grade and expectations for this date.
