AU55 NGC

Original $515 New November 29! Transitional Type 2 Obverse, Lightly Mirrored Surfaces, Accurately Graded.. I'm not a big fan of the gold dollar Type 2 obverse design given the tiny legend, reduced Liberty bust size and the excessive open field area.

This example offers frosty luster radiating from original surfaces even at the AU55 grade level. Coloring is uniform yellow gold. There is one horizontal micro line on the reverse under the date digits that is easily seen on GFRC images. In hand. this line is not distracting and was amplified by an angle light source during photography. Reverse is heavily clashed with Liberty's outline plainly visible.

MS64+
PCGS
81268503
Gem $6950 What a GEM! Radiate Satiny Luster, Osprey Collection. A gem for the assigned MS64+ grade which has me wondering why a full MS65 grade was not assigned based on surface conditions only? 1914 Denver strikes are the third rarest issue of the Indian quarter eagle series with 1914 and 1911-D being rarer. The Mint State population drops off quickly after MS-63 with substantial price jumps to $16K at the MS65 grade level. This probably explains why PCGS was so cautious in assigning full MS65 grade level and turning this piece into a five figure numismatic item. So here we are with assigned MS64+ grade and CAC approval. If one understands statistics and gaussian distributions, then there is a reasonable probability that this piece is equivalent to a portion of those presently graded MS65 and selling for double the GFRC asking price. Actually, I believe the asking price is a bargain for the quality. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and a no question candidate for CAC approval. Another superb offering from the Osprey Collection.

Choice $1975 Affordable Carson City Date, Old Time Copper Gold Patina, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection . Mintage of 208,000 and rendering this Carson City date as the most affordable from that era. I really like and recommend this gold half eagle due to the transparent copper gold patina. Placing this piece under a light source releases cartwheel luster and probably difficult to anticipate this surface condition when viewing the GFRC images. Blemishes are at a minimum with a few field ticks on the reverse but fully toned over. Housed in new large font NGC holder. The old time originality and accurately grading warrant CAC approval.

Original $3000 New December 30! Early Date, Original Orange Gold, Accurately Grading, Osprey Collection. An affordable and attractive 1851 Philadelphia $20 double eagle strike that was recently repatriated from Europe. Though this date has a mintate of slightly over 2,000,000, it is far from common and always in demand when accurately graded and fairly priced. This example exhibits satiny luster with a delicate semi-granular finish that is typical for the issue. Strike is also typical with decent definition of central hair curls and rounded stars. There are a few blemishes on the reverse with the most noticeable being below the eagle tail feathers. Accurately graded at the AU53 grade level and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Another quality offering from the Osprey Collection that deserves consideration.

Choice $15850 Rare Early Date and Grade, Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, CAC Candidate, Osprey Collection. What an awesome offering from the Osprey Collection! 1851 represents the second year of circulation strike $20 double eagle production at the Philadelphia Mint. Mintage is slightly over 2,000,000 for this Type I design date. This example is choice original with textured cartwheel luster and a strong candidate for CAC review. Abrasions are too a minimum for the assigned MS62 grade while cartwheel luster is so dominate and pleasing. Strike is bold and crisp. All stars are rounded with deep centrils while all vertical and horizontal shield lines are separated by deep channels. This lovely example offers plenty of eye appeal and natural coloration. Don't I enjoy just swirling the obverse and reverse under bright light to activate the flashy textured luster. A new arrival from Europe and has just been graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder without CAC review. A superb piece from the Osprey Collection for serious collectors of early $20 double eagles.

81982953
Original $7850 Scarce New Orleans Date, Attractive Mark Free Surfaces, Osprey Collection. The 1852 New Orleans double eagle sports a mintage of 190,000 and is an excellent choice for the Type I New Orleans slot in a United States gold type set. Most 1852-O double eagles are seen with a fair number of blemishes so collectors need to look for those with minimal marks heavily abraded. 1852 examples offer decent eye appeal but still not comparable to Philadelphia counterparts. This attractive Osprey example has been freshly graded and originated from Europe as many Osprey gold coins are. Accurately graded with surfaces that are free of any distracting blemishes. Toning is a consistent yellow gold while strike is complete. Please remember that nice New Orleans double eagles should continue to be in demand for years to come as such a popular and challenging mint to collect. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A quality piece from the Osprey Collection.

Choice $5750 Near Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Lots of Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded. A near gem example with eye catching cartwheel luster. Surfaces are essentially blemish free and I could easily see this double eagle in an MS61 without question. 1853 double eagle strikes have a lower mintage than their 1851 and the 1852 counteparts but all three dates have similar pricing and overall availability. The 1853 date is rare in Mint State grades and undervalued as PCGS has only graded (3) in MS63 and none higher. This AU58 example with CAC approval is so choice and pleasing. In hand inspection under a bright light will reveal the flashy luster and tickle the eyes. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder along with CAC approval. Please give this double eagle special consideration as I know GFRC customers will not be disappointed.

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. Residual luster has a satiny grainy texture. All Large Date examples will show a distinct die dot on Liberty's throat above the 8 digit. This diagnostic point is quite obvious on the offered example.

Choice $9000 Crusty European Eye Appeal, Choice Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Watch Hill Collection. Difficult early Civil War date that is always in demand. This 1862 San Francisco strike offers choice surfaces with that classic crusty European look. This date has a very low survival rate in choice AU and mint state regardless of a mintage slightly over 850,000. CAC has only approved (7) in mint state graded of MS61 - MS63 with none higher. In AU58 grade, this date is an excellent value. Housed in newer NGC holder with CAC approval. A quality offering from the Watch Hill Collection.

Choice $7250 Choice Original, Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Orange Gold Patina, Accurately Graded, Watch Hill Collection. A wonderful 1863 San Francisco strike with satiny cartwheel luster and minimal surface abrasions. More available than the 1862-S Civil War date but still scarce in mint state. At the AU58 grade level plus CAC approval, this example offers eye appeal consistent with MS62 grade level for much less money. Priced at PCGS MS60 guide prices with no CAC approved AU58 (PCGS or NGC) examples at auction during past two years. Housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. CAC approval is clearly warranted given the choice surfaces, cartwheel luster and overall eye appeal. I love this piece from the Watch Hill Collection.

A choice original offering with pretty orange gold patina and soft glowing luster.

MS62 PCGS
81982954
Choice $5500 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. Vibrant cartwheel luster dominates with few if any marks. The reverse is especially lustrous. Strike is complete with nicely rounded stars and deeply impressed reverse details. This piece is fresh from Europe and recently graded. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder without CAC attempt. A choice and quality piece from the Osprey Collection.
