New February 19! Massive Reverse Cud, Choice Original, Gray-Gold Surfaces, Very Rare Terminal Die State, Indiana Collection. An amazing terminal die state example with massive reverse retained cud from fully broken die at (UNI)TED. Finding a piece with such a huge cud would be news but then consider the choice original surfaces. This is not a junkbox find but rather a strictly original example that has been well preserved. Obverse show strike weakness at denticles and stars 4 through 6 opposite the reverse retained cud. Is this piece unique? Actually, this is the fourth known example according to Liberty Seated half dime expert, Stephen Crain. He wrote the following in an email upon seeing AU50 example listed on GFRC price list. "Based upon my own experience, I would say that it is rare, but certainly not unique. In 2008 I saw two (2!) examples in one LSCC member's collection, and was finally able to pry a nice ANACS EF-45 example from him, which now resides in my reference collection. Later, in January of 2015, I was offered another nice EF-40 Raw example by Brian Greer which I also purchased. So, based upon just these examples, I now know of four examples, including yours. I would judge this very late die state to be rare, but not unique, and of course it is of considerable interest to collectors, as are all cud examples. I would also add that this cud must have occurred in one single catastrophic event, as all examples seen exhibit the very same cud; none seen have either a larger nor a smaller cud." An important terminal die state offering from the Indiana Collection.

Choice $825 New February 17! Choice Original, Old Album Bullseye Toning, Accurately Graded, Perfect Type Coin. A superb 1838 New Orleans strike that is a near gem with old album bullseye toning. Obverse and reverse centers are light gray and surrounded by rings of intermixed blues and gold. The F-102 die pairing features an obverse die that was previously used to strike the F-101 repunched mintmark variety. This obverse is paired with a second reverse die and results in the F-102 variety. During the latter case, the obverse die is fairly eroded with soft devices that lack crisp details while the reverse is not much better in term of strong devices. This example offers a typical strike and is accurately graded at the EF40 level. However, the surfaces and eye appeal are superior to most seen during my collecting days. CAC seemed to agree with green bean approval. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. A super piece for a date/mintmark set.

New February 17! Gem Original, Hammered Strike, Transparent Rose, Gold and Aquamarine, Accurately Graded. A gorgeous Standing Liberty quarter that I simply could not resist adding to GFRC inventory due to gem eye appeal and surfaces. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with Full Head (FH) designation on the PCGS label. The 1917 San Francisco date has a mintage of slightly under 2,000,000 and is not scarce. However, the challenge for originality fans is locating examples that have natural patina rather than being blast frosty white. This example offers rose-gold patina with aquamarine hues and satiny cartwheel luster. What a combination! PCGS grading is accurate as there is faint rub on the lower left knee but not much else. Please give this piece special consideration.

During in hand viewing, the obverse is primarly gun metal gray with blue arc and some faint gold at the lower left base. Adding a light source melts the grays and exposes the underlying orange gold coloring. The reverse has similar color characteristic with more pronouced golden hues and less grays. Obverse strike is complete while the reverse has some minor weakness at the lower left leg and arrow feathers; so typical of Seated half dollar coinage. This lovely piece is entirely blemish free. An offering for the selective collectors that enjoys showcasing premium coins. Accurately graded as AU55 with CAC approval and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

New February 16! Gem Original, Rusted Obverse Die, Undergraded, Incredible Eye Appeal, Seal Beach Collection.. Let's start this description by making a bold recommendation, JUST BUY IT NOW! This incredible WB-19 R4 example belongs in the most selective Seated half collection. PCGS was too strict grading this piece as I believe it is a full AU55. The AU53 results from weak obverse devices due to being struck by a rusted and eroded die. The die erosion is most evident along the raised scroll edges. There is little wear but rather a weak strike. Eye appeal is superior with glowing surfaces covered by gun metal blue gray patina. Under a bright light, the obverse shifts to a ring of light gold surrounding the stars and a sky blue center. The reverse coloring is also similar but not as pronounced as the obverse. Reverse strike is well executed and there are no blemishes to discuss. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A substantial quality offering from the Seal Beach Collection that deserves special consideration regardless of the asking price. The very best is worth a premium!

Market Acceptable $1000 New February 16! Low Mintage Date, Creamy Cartwheel Luster, Hammered Strike, Seal Beach Collection. At first glance one would assume this lustrous 1889 half would receive a Choice quality rating due to the creamy cartwheel luster and hammered strike. Prior to the 1980, old time collectors would have loved to own this example. In today's technical grading environment, this piece probably will not certify due to minor obverse hairlines in the upper left field and below the claws on the reverse. As a result of this blemishes, a Market Acceptable quality rating has been assigned but please consider the overall eye appeal against the asking price. The 1889 Seated half dollar date was struck in a 10 year timespan when Philadelphia strike totals dropped dramatically. This date has a tiny mintage of 12,000 and is always in demand. Offer in raw condition and an attractive consignment from the Seal Beach collection. Ideal for a high grade Dansco or Whitman album set.

New February 9! Rare Date/Grade, Near Gem Original, Satiny Golden Luster, West Texas Collection. An important GFRC offering as 1872 San Francisco strikes are rare in AU or better grades. Mintage is a low 190,00 pieces with few surviving choice. PCGS population report indicates only four graded at AU55 level and another four at AU58…that is all after 30 years of PCGS grading. This example is a near gem for the grade with hammered strike and satiny luster. Surfaces are covered with light golden patina that activates under a light source. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder and accurately graded. A super offering from the West Texas Collection that should not last long.

Market Acceptable $950 New February 9! Semi Key Date, Gun Metal Gray Surfaces, Fully Recovered From Old Clean, West Texas Collection. A very difficult Seated dime date with mintage of 80,000. Locating choice example will be challenging due to low survival rates. This example, from the West Texas Collection, appears to be fully original during in hand inspection. The gun metal surface surfaces are typical of original silver. However, a bright light inspection reveals reflective surfaces that are too active to be original. Therefore a Market Acceptable quality rating has been assigned. This piece is blemish free and perfect for a Dansco or Whitman album set. On a good day, it may even gray at TPGs. Pricing reflects the accurate surface descriptions. I've look at Fine 12 examples at HA auction and this piece definitely has more device details and nice gray color than some in TPG holders.

Surfaces have partially retoned to a light gray after a long ago cleaning. Fairly priced and perfect for a Dansco or Whitman date/mintmark set. Another offering from the West Texas Collection.

New February 6! Important With Drapery Type, Choice Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded . A lovely 1839 With Drapery mint state half dollar with substantial eye appeal. One immediately notices the frosty cartwheel luster that is consistent on obverse and reverse. Light transparent rose-gold patina covers most of the obverse while the reverse is has a gold arc at the right rim. Strike is outstanding with deeply impressed hair curls, rounded stars and all lower ealge feathers and claws being crisply defined. This is the first Seated Philadelphia strike to be attributed to Bill Bugert's new Volume V Register with the attribution process being straightforward. Arcing radial lines in the lower drapery are a key diagnostic for the WB-7 die variety with a weak clash mark in the lower right shield. PCGS population report indicates only 11 graded MS63 and a detailed CoinFacts auction lot check revealed only four examples listed at auction between September 2006 and October 2016; none with CAC approval. This offering is definitely in the top end of the MS63 graded and worthy of the asking price else I would not have acquired for GFRC inventory. Housed in newer NGC holder with CAC approval.

A splendid Civil War half struck during the 1861 February-March timeframe while the New Orleans mint was under the State of Louisiana administrative control. Attributing Louisania strikes can be challenging but the W-7 die pairing can be identified by date punch and mintmark placement along with several minor reverse die cracks. The offered example is absolutely choice at the assigned AU53 grade level. Yes, I paid strong to acquire this lustrous piece for GFRC customers but the half is definitely worth the premium. Light gold cartwheel luster dominates the obverse appearance and is more consistent with a higher AU grade. The reverse cartwheel luster is also substantial and well compliments the obverse. Strike is complete on the reverse while the obverse has a few weak stars without connected centrils. I do not see any distracting marks and the only blemish to note is a faint bag mark to the right of the eagle's head. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and a special offering for those assembling 1861-O die pairing sets. The GFRC images are really poor as compared to having this piece in hand.

I was torn between labeling this piece as Choice or Gem due to the incredibly original surfaces coupled with uniform gun metal gray/blue patina and residual luster under bright light. This piece is fully blemish free. The only issue holding it back from the Gem label is some mild strike weakness in the obverse center (lower leg and breasts). A slightly better With Arrows type coin in an uncommon state of preservation. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Definitely worth a close look....

New January 26! Near Gem Original, Light Gray-Gold Patina, Bright Light Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded. A superior 1848 New Orleans strike that would please the most selective collector. This piece is close to gem original with superior eye appeal. If the strike was stronger on the right obverse, then a gem quality rating would have been assigned. Surfaces are blemish free and covered with a transparent gray-gold patina that melts away under a light source. Bright gold, aquamarine and some blues coupled with reflective luster appear on the obverse while the reverse shift to rose-gold. Accurately graded. I like this piece so much that a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation is being made. Housed in old PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. Please don't compare the GFRC asking price with those mediocre quality listings on CoinFacts.

The reverse remains gun metal gray both during in hand and bright light inspection. Reverse is in a late die state with significant die cracks. There is some wear through the patina on the left wing under 10x loupe. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Choice $495 New January 24! 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.

A strictly original example of the 1877/6-CC Overdate with natural medium gray surfaces. The overdate is not visible on flag of second 7 digit due to wear.

I like this dime given the bold diagnostic include scratch in shield and repunching above the base of 1 digit. If in the market for an 1877-CC F-107, then JUST BUY IT NOW.....

F-102a
Cleaned $195 New January 21! Repunched 8, Rare 1845 Date Variety, R6 Rarity, Old Album Retoning. The 1845 F-102a is such a rare and under appreciated die state variety among Liberty Seated collectors. The extra repunched top loop of the 8 digit is visible between 9:00 and 12:00 on this example and is seldom seen offered. To provide an explanation on the F-102a variety, following is an extraction from the Liberty Seated Dime web-book. So when was the Variety 102a dime struck? Could the repunching over the 8 digit be visible only when the obverse strike is very bold? Could the Variety 102a variety be a bold strike die state of the Obverse 1 and Reverse C.2 die pairing? I believe this to be the case. The continuing difficulty in locating an example of this variety versus the general availability of other 1845 repunched varieties, would suggest a striking anomaly or die state phenomenon as a potential explanation. The repunching of the 8 digit on Obverse 1 could have been present on the die for a considerable time. However, the repunching is very shallow on the face of the die, requiring a strong strike to pass an imprint to the planchet in the die press. The offered example has been lightly cleaned in the past and is retoning. I've assigned a Cleaned quality rating as the cleaning was substantial while this piece has not fully recovered.

There are several Top 100 varieties that I have deep respect for including the 1877 F-105 MPD and the 1891 F-109 Double Die Obverse due to the inability to locate after so many years of searching. This 1891 F-109 example, from the Indiana Collection, has been cleaned and is slowly recovering a gray patina along with some gold hues under bright light. Frankly, if you are pursuing a Top 100 set, this offering may be an excellent filler for the variety until a strictly original example appears. Again, this is a most difficult variety to locate with the assigned R5 rarity being conservative.
