Choice $485 New May 19! Choice Original, Light Gray-Olive Patina, Well Struck for Variety, Accurately Graded, Linden Collection. Ex. Gorman. Strong JR-5 Large 4 example with choice original surfaces. Attractive light gray-olive patina is nicely distributed across obverse with light shades at the periphery. Reverse has similar coloring except for dark blue at the lower reverse. Obverse strike is well executed with all stars in high relief while reverse has center weakness typical for the variety. A careful 10x loupe inspection reviews an ancient toned over line above the eagles head that is not distracting. A well balance example worth considering. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with Gorman and Large 4 shown on the label. From the Linden Collection, a new consignor making his debut at GFRC.

Original $12950 New May 18! Top 100 Varieties Key Date, Double Die Obverse, One of Finest Extant, Frosty Luster, Bold Doubling Details, Accurately Graded, Cold Quarters Collection. 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 20° 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. A substantial Liberty Seated die variety offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

New May 18! Doubled Die Obverse, Greer Reverse C Die Pairing, Crusty Gray-Brown Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Cold Quarters Collection. GFRC is pleased to offer this mint state 1876-CC F-105 Doubled Die Obverse Seated dime when paired with Greer Reverse C (downward sloping mintmark). F-105 is the earliest double die obverse die state seen with all letters in OF AMERICA strongly doubled and overall device details being sharp. Additional doubling can be found in the lower gown lines and at the bottom of the base, directly above the date digits. During this early die state, the obverse is paired with Greer Reverse C (Fortin Reverse A). Brian Greer, in his DLRC Press guidebook on Liberty Seated dimes, states that "This is the scarcest of the three doubled die obverse die pairings overall, however this die pair is more often available than Reverse A (Fortin Variety 106) in grades of XF to Mint State. Rare in any grade." This example has thick crusty original patina over well struck devices. The assigned MS61 grade is accurate and results from muted luster and some toned over blemishes on Liberty's upper legs. Housed in older NGC holder with standard ring insert. A substantial Liberty Seated die variety offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

New May 18! First Year San Francisco Strike, Low Survival Rate, Choice Original, Excellent Strike, Accurately Graded, Outback Collection. A choice original example of the infrequently seen 1855 San Francisco date. Surfaces are entirely blemish free and covered with a transparent gun metal gray-blue patina. Adding a light source releases the residual luster from ever so lightly mirrored surfaces. Strike is well executed with only stars 11 and 12 lacking connected centrils. Mintage is 396,400 but a low survival rate leaves few choice examples for collectors. PCGS population report indicates (5) in AU53, (2) at AU55 and (3) at AU58 grade levels and only 5 total in all Mint State grades. Just consider that point for a moment; only 5 graded at PCGS in all uncirculated grades and a definitely strong five figure coins when a specimen does reach market. A superior example that was previously sold into the Outback Collection after being off the market since 2010. Housed in older NGC standard ring holder and fair value at the GFRC offer price.

Gem $4150 New May 18! Tied for Finest Known V-7, Repunched 48, Superb Gem, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Lavendar-Rose Patina, Hammered Strike, Accurately Graded, Cold Quarters Collection. What an amazing 1848 Liberty Seated half dime from an eye appeal perspective let alone the 1848/48 V-7 FS-302 die variety. 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. The 1848 date has a report mintage of 668,000 and is a rarity in MS65 or better. PCGS population report indicates only 1 graded at MS65 and another at MS66. NGC shows six in MS65 and one MS66 finer. This NGC graded example has no CoinFacts or Heritage auctions records. Heritage auctioned a PCGS MS65 CAC approved V-7 during May 2015 for $3525 as the only point of comparison. I like the Cold Quarters specimen better. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert and FS-302 variety attribution on the label. A substantial important to acquire both a condition census 1848 Liberty Seated half dime along with the intereesting V-7 die variety from the Cold Quarters Collection.

Original $2650 New May 14! Original, Mirrored Surfaces, Reflective Luster, Rose Gray Patina, Average Strike, Missouri Collection. The first New Olreans issue of the Seated dollar denomination with a mintage of 59,000. Bowers indicates that, "In circulated grades, the 1846-O has always been relatively easy to find below Extremely Fine but above that grade level, better pieces are quite rare. I suspect that this issue circulated widely and saw use in the channels of commerce up and down the Mississippi River Valley, especially riverboats (which numbered in the hundreds) and casinos. Relatively few must have been melted or exported. As the first branch mint silver dollar and as an issue of the New Orleans Mint, the 1846-O has always occupied a place of affection in collectors' hearts." This surviving example is very pleasing under a bright light. Mirrored fields produce sharp reflective luster that activates a thin layer of rose gold patina intermixed with sky blue coloring. In hand, the toning appears to be mostly rose-gray. Strike is typical for the date with stars 8 through 12 lacking connected centrils. Let's remember that this was a substantial sized coins to strike at the New Orleans mint. Overall eye appeal is pleasing. The dark spot in the right obverse field is verdigris on the surface. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s timeframe. Another important Liberty Seated dollar offering from the Missouri Collection. I like this piece a lot and priced accordingly.

Original $2750 New May 14! Low Mintage Date, Near Choice Original, Steely Reflective Luster, Mottled Toning, Accurately Graded, Missouri Collection. 1848 Philadelphia strikes have a tiny mintage of 15,000 coins, and survivors are scarce at all grade levels. This original example is a nicely detailed with slight rub on the high points. Surfaces are covered with mottled accents of gold, golden-brown, cobalt-green and lavender patina on both sides. Under a light source, the fields provide ample steely luster that is expected from well preserved surfaces. Scattered small abrasions are noted in the upper obverse fields and on Liberty's upper body. PCGS has only certified 24 examples at the AU55 grade level and many of those are considered marginal when viewing CoinFact auction images. A near choice offering from the Missouri Collection that is housed in PCGS 2014 generation holder. Accurately priced for the quality with a firm asking price.

New May 14! One of the Top Seated Dollar Date Rarities, Pleasing AU55 Appearance, Lightly Tooled and Retoned, Fully Struck, Missouri Collection. Potentially the rarest Philadelphia Mint Liberty Seated dollar struck after 1851-1852. Mintage is 33,140 but near all examples were exported to the Orient for growing United States commerce. The fact that few surviving specimens are known in choice original condition can be easily discovered by researching CoinFacts and associated auction records. At the AU55 grade level, PCGS has certified 13 pieces with only three auction appearances (PCGS and NGC) since 2013. If searching for an 1854 example, the wait could be multi year. This example, from the Misssouri Collection, is housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and designated as Genuine Code 98. A careful 10x inspection revealed micro tooling lines in the left and right obverse fields. I don't understand the need for these tooling lines as the unmolested surfaces surrounding the date offer nice natural luster. On the reverse, the field above the eagle's head has also seen very faint tooling while the lower reverse was not impacted. This piece has been retoned after the workmanship. Strike is hammered and quite appealing. Based on wear only, an AU55 grade would be accurate. Bright light viewing results in reflective golden luster with blue highlights at the stars. The reverse brings intermixed gold, rose and blue colors. In hand and under a bright light, this rare 1854 date is pleasing though obviously not original. Pricing is my best quess given the overall pleasing appearance, minimal wear and substantial rarity. Another important offering from the Missouri Collection for those missing this rare date.

Original $1325 New May 14! Crusty Original, Gray-Brown Patina, Fully Struck, Blemish Free, Accurately Graded, Missouri Collection. Essentially a twin to the 1864 NGC AU55 Seated dollar also being consigned by the Missouri Collection. Thick crusty gray-brown patina covers both sides. Luster is muted, as to be expected, since the toning is so thick. Bright light viewing exposes gold hues that are a testiment to the strict originality for this well preserved 1860 New Orleans strike. Most high end AU and mint state 1860-O dollars are found with bag marks due to a release of several bag by the Treasury during 1962-1964 timeframe. This example is obviously not part of that release as the surfaces are essentially blemish free and a pleasure to inspect with a 10x loupe. Strike is 100% executed and frankly, it is difficult to discern any wear due to the thick toning. This could very well be a mint state example that has been conservatively graded. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Another excellent offering from the Missouri Collection to consider by those who are fans of crusty originality with respect to their Liberty Seated coinage.

Low Civil War era mintage of 30,700 with circulation 1864 dollar strikes being very elusive. A low mintage coupled with most being exported results in low survival rate; those remaining becoming numismatic rarities. This choice original example warrants serious collector attention. Surfaces are covered with crusty gray-brown patina that will please originality specialists. Under the thick patina are steely fields that reflect sufficient luster at the assigned grade level. Bright light viewing activates sky blue hues on both sides, a further testiment to the unmolested surfaces. Strike is completely executed and enhances eye appeal. Blemishes are limited to a few micro contact marks in the fields but let's remember this is a Seated dollar and not small denomination issue. The large field areas are magnets for contact. Housed in new large font NGC holder. An important numismatic property from the Missouri Collection that belongs in the finest circulated dollar collections.

The 1796 B-5 BB-65 Draped Bust dollars were struck from a single die pair whereby the dies were not used for other die pairings. As a result, B-5 BB-65 allows for collecting well known die states. Key to die state identification is a reverse die break/die cud at AMER(IC)A that expands with die usage. The offered Montana Collection example is Die State IV where a large die cud forms and consumes most of the vertical shaft of the I and connects to the curve of the C in the legend. This die state is considered scarcer than Die States II or III by Bowers. Adding to the importance of this offering are the choice original surfaces that are so well preserved and entirely free of any noteworthy distractions. A rich gray-bown toning skin covers both sides. Contrast between the darker fields and lighter is most pleasing. Strike is well executed and uniform. Accurately graded and housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. This lovely early dollar has been off the market for years while held in the Montana Collection. There has been no CAC attempt.

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. Yet another top quality offering from the Outback Collection to consider.

New May 9! 50/20, Capped Bust Design, Choice Original, Gray Patina, Well Struck, Accurately Graded, Outback Collection. 1807 brought a substantial design transition from Robert Scot's iconic Draped Bust rendetion of Liberty to John Reich's right facing implementation. The John Reich projected Lady Liberty with power and strength. This offering, from the Outback Collection, was struck from the O-112 die pairing and features the popular 50/20 denomination overtype. A better than average strike given how poorly early Capped Bust halves are found. Obverse stars and hair curls are well defined including bold clasp but the reverse does have weakness at the upper left facing wing and at the eagle's head. Surfaces are covered with original gray patina. Blemish wise, there is one ancient and fully toned over micro line below the clasp and a few scattered field ticks on the reverse. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert along with CAC approval.

Surfaces are toned a light to medium gray with copper/gold hues surrounding the stars and reverse legend when viewed under a light source. A close 10x loupe inspection revealed one tiny field blemish between the curls and star 10. Strike is typical for the variety with uneven stars; some have connected centrils while others are flat.

David Akers provides grade rarity insight with the following commentary, "This is another of the many scarce S Mint quarter eagles. It is difficult to obtain in any grade, and when available, the typical 1873-S is only VF. Mint state specimens of this date are extremely rare and I have seen no more than two or three such coins. Like all S Mint quarter eagles, the 1873-S is very rare and underrated, particularly in grades above EF."

Original $600 New May 3! 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.

Market Acceptable $1450 New May 3! Double Die Obverse, Bold Shield Doubling, Antique Gray Patina, Ancient Clean or Dip, Typical Strike, Indiana Collection. Really, the 1873 With Arrows F-103 is one of the most spectacular doubled dies in the entire Liberty Seated dime series. This doubled obverse die variety was discovered by Kam Ahwash, but not published in his 1981 encyclopedia. A misplaced 3 digit was discovered in 2002 and first listed in Kevin Flynn's MPD book entitled "Two Dates Are Better Than One, A Collector's Guide to Misplaced Dates". This variety, with its spectacular die doubling within and to the right of the shield, is considered R-6 rarity in VF or better and is infrequently encountered. This variety brings a significant premium when located. The Indiana Collection consignor is in the process of upgrading the 1873 WA F-103 example within his Top 100 Varieties set. Therefore this specimen is available and hopefully will be purchased quickly. Surfaces are covered with gun metal gray patina on both reverse. This piece has seen an ancient dip with the obverse completely retoned and the reverse still a work in progress. As a result, a Market Acceptable quality rating has been assigned. The highlight of this piece is the bold die doubling to the right of the shield and below the scroll in the shield. Fairly priced!

Choice $925 New April 30! Underrated Date, Vibrant Cartwheel Luster, Choice Original, Steely Surfaces, Colorful Natural Toning, Accurately Graded. 1890 Philadelphia strikes do not garner the attention that this date deserves. Mintage is a low 80,000 with most collectors assuming that 1890 dated quarters are comparable to the high mintage 1891 date. I'm always on the hunt for nice original 1890 strikes and few are seen. Luckily, this lovely NGC MS63 specimen appeared at the 2018 Central States show and was immediately scooped up into inventory. One look at this piece and you will understand why. Eye appeal is high due to choice original mint state surfaces followed by vibrant cartwheel luster under any light source. Obverse offers copper gray patina with bold gold at the peripheries while reverse is a combination of darker rose, teal and gold. A closed 10x loupe inspection revealed nothing in terms of blemishes. Housed in old NGC standard ring holder than dates back to the late 1990s. I really like this example and believe you will also.

Choice $3250 New April 29! Rare Philadelphia Date, Choice Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold Patina, Conservative Grading.

Frosty cartwheel luster and choice original surfaces immediately become evident when first viewed. Strike is 100% comple with all star centrils connected and reverse eagle details being deeply impressed. Overall eye appeal is above average. Fields are surprisingly blemish free for the assigned grade. The WB-2 die variety is easily attributed by diagonal die scratches inside the reverse shield. By now, GFRC customer are well aware of the silver arbitrage taking place during the 1850 to 1853 timeframe when silver prices increased due to excessive gold flooding the market from California. Most 1852 Seated halves were melted and few are available for present day collectors. This conservatively graded example is housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and I guarantee it will please the most selective collector of the series.

Original $825 New April 23! Original Mirrored Fields, Rose Gold Toning, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded, Murphy's Collection. Is this really an 1876 Carson City struck Seated dime? This may be the first question asked upon inspection as the striking characteristics are so atypical for this date and mint. 1876-CC dimes are rarely found with mirrored fields. A few are known including the F-121 specimen strikes that bring well into the mid five figures. Now this F-120 arrives with mirrored fields and a full strike. Reflective cartwheel luster is consistent with heavily mirrored surfaces and nicely interacts with rose-gold patina. Viewing the rims is difficult due to the old NGC holder with standard ring insert. But from what I can tell, there are partial wire rims on this piece. The assigned MS63 grade is accurate given some chatter in the fields and viewing the surfaces as proof like. An important offering from the Murphy's Collection that deserves special consideration. This F-120 example will debut at the Central States show.

A choice original example of the popular 1877/6 overdate obverse paired with F-107 reverse. This die pairing combination is listed in the Top 100 Varieties set and is challenging to locate choice. One could not locate a more original example given the crusty gray patina on both side of this example. Strike is well executed throughout obverse while the reverse die is cracked and poorly hub on the left portion of the wreath. Frankly, I see this dime as being close to AU50 based on wear but the reverse strike/worn die brought about EF45 designation. Most obverse diagnostic are readily seen including the diagonal die scratch in the shield and repunching on the 1 digit. There is a micro mark on the upper flag of the last 7 which does not allow for a clear view of the top of the 6 digit on the upper flag. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and a strong candidate for CAC review. From the Murphy's Collection.

This offering is a rare transitional design hub die variety and deserves a special description. Who best than Liberty Seated quarter expert Greg Johnson to discuss this offering. The following was taken from his April 2011 E-Gobrecht article on the subject.... "The 1861 Type II/I quarter is a very rare coin, which one noted expert has compared to the 1853 No Arrows in terms of overall rarity in all grades. It is even more interesting as a very rare variety of a very common date. Since Heritage began archiving photos on their website a total of 195 business strike 1861 quarters have been offered for sale. The single confirmed Type II/I example was sold in 1999 and resides in a SEGS XF40 holder. Seven of the 81 examples of the 1861 reported in the 1993 survey were Type II/I; five of the 57 examples reported in the 2007 survey were Type II/I. More than five years of diligent searching has led me to estimate that, contrary to what the survey numbers appear to indicate, the Type II/I represents less than one half of one percent of the 1861 quarters currently available in the marketplace. The search began with 18 months of futility, followed by one example each year for three years. Then, during early 2010, 5 examples appeared in the space of about 3 months, followed by 7 months (and counting) without a single additional example. The search has included EBay listings, several major shows per year, and more than a dozen dealer websites over a period covering more than 5 years. A total of 8 examples were located during that period. A particularly low number considering just how ubiquitous the 1861 is as a date." This example is accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Mottled rose-blue patina covers the obverse while the reverse has a gold-gray covering. Hurry on this Top 25 Varieties set candidate as so difficult to locate at EF and AU grade levels.

The nickel alloy offers amazing steely proof cartwheel luster under a bright light. But while viewing in hand, the rich golden overlays are dominant as seen in the GFRC images. I'm falling in love with this incredible proof Shield nickel as it marries the qualities of cameo surfaces with old natural toning. At the PR66 Cameo level this date is quite difficult to locate, especially with CAC approval. This is an important offering housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. From the Winestevens Collection of fine numismatic properties.

New April 20! Rare Reverse of 1838 Strike, Medium Letters, Original Gray Patina, Honest Wear, Accurately Graded, New Jersey Collection. The 1840(O) die variety is well recognized and pairs an 1840 Seated Liberty obverse with a reverse die that was used to strike Reeded Edge half dollars at the New Olreans mint. For 1838 and 1839 Reeded Edge strikes, the "O" mintmark was placed on the the obverse and not the reverse. The 1840(O) die pairing is straightforward to cherrypick (good luck) by looking for a Medium letter sized reverse rather than the Small lettering that was first used in Philadelphia during 1839 . The 1840(O) is rare and on every Liberty Seated half dollar collectors want list as a type coin or for a date and mintmark set. This G06 example is the best that the New Jersey consignor could locate for his collection and gives credence to its rarity. Surfaces are evenly worn with a natural gray patina. Accurately graded and wholesome. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. Another important offering from the New Jersey Collection of Liberty Seated halves.

Choice $1150 New April 20! Better Die Variety and Date, Choice Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded, New Jersey Collection. A wonderful 1850 New Orleans strike that is underrated. Mintage is nearly 2,500,000 but survival rate is very low due to excessive melting during the silver bullion arbitrage period of 1850 through early 1853. This surviving example is strictly original with brilliant frosty cartwheel luster on the obverse and aquamarine-gold luster on the reverse. I'm very much impressed with the care and preservation state of this example. Strike is 100% complete with all stars having connected centrils and all aspects of the eagle device being deeply impressed. I've assigned a choice quality rating to this piece and stand by it. There are a few wispy hairlines in the obverse fields under 10x loupe but who cares. The luster and eye appeal are dominant and, by the way, this piece is accurately graded as an AU58. And finally, the die pairing is WB-4 with rarity rating of R5 per Bugert's Federal Registry on New Orleans strikes. Housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert that dates to the late 1990s.
