Honestly, this 1850-O F-107 Medium O dime was plucked from the Newtown Dansco album in anticipation of a straight PCGS grade. The toning is a natural gray and covers both sides. I was initially surprised to see the EF Details certification on the PCGS grading report. Once this piece was back in the office and studied, I can see the issue. The surfaces are grainy or textured and covered with some dark verdigris. It does appear that this dime saw a clean during its early life and subsequently toned over. Having said all of that, the F-107 Medium O mintmark size is most difficult to locate. This offering would be a good filler and is price fairly consistent with the PCGS details grade.

Please note the S mintmark is well form and visible on this F-101 example. In many cases it is weak and barely visible. Priced at the PCGS VF25 price guide and worth every cent. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. A quality Dansco selection from the Newtown Collection.

How about nine examples certified in both Fine grades and only twelve in all Very Fine grades to illustrate the point? This 1872-S survival was recently extracted from the Newtown Collection's Dansco album and graded. Surfaces are covered with dirty gray patina. Ebony highlights surround the legend and reverse periphery. Strike is typical for the date with ample device details remaining at the assigned F15 grade.

Original $450 New May 17! Low Mintage Date, Crusty Gray Patina, Original Surfaces, Wire Rims, Newtown Dansco Album Collection. Low mintage date with only 36,000 struck. Survival rate is concentrated in the mint state grades as most were saved prior to circulation. 1880 Philadelphia strikes are very scarce in circulated grades with only eight certified by PCGS at the AU50 grade level. This example offers strictly original surfaces that are covered with thick crusty gray patina. The F-102a pairing was employed for both proof strikes and circulation strikes. The variety is easy to diagnose due to obvious date repunching. Repunching on the bottom of the lower 8 digit loop is dramatic. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.

New May 15! Rare Date, Original, Typical Strike, Olive-Rose Toning, Undegraded, Newtown Dansco Album Collection. The scarce 1843 New Orleans date is well recognized for being found with problematic surfaces and erratic strikes. In AU or better, this date becomes a substantial rarity. At lower circulated grades, the challenge is locating well preserved examples and facing the striking versus grading challenge. This Newtown Collection offering is typical of that grading challenge. PCGS has certified this piece at Fine 15 with the strike being dominant in the grading decision. Based on wear alone, this piece is a full VF as can be seen by the raise scrolled and surface contours. On the reverse, some of the wreath leaves are present and inconsistent with the assigned grade. Obverse strike is obviously weak with flat lower leg, gown line and head details. Surfaces are unabraded and toned an intermixed olive-gray with embedded rose that appears under a light source. Freshly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. A quality Dansco selection from the Newtown Collection that is a bit difficult to price in its current holder.

Market Acceptable $195 New May 13! Rare Shattered Reverse Die State, Light Gray Patina, Obverse Granularity. An important shattered reverse occurrence for 1887 San Francisco strikes. The F-111 reverse die is in a terminal die state with what appears to be internal die cuds at 9:00 and 11:00. This is a rare die state with only several low grade examples surfacing in the past twenty years. As a result, this variety and terminal die state trade at a strong premium in any grade. This offered example is new to the market as has recently surfaced. A typical example with boldly strike obverse graded full VF30 while the reverse is weak. The two reverse die cuds are visible. The obverse has some granularity from a likely long ago cleaning. It has since nicely retoned. A Market Acceptable quality rating is fair.

Original $295 New May 9! Popular First Year With Rays Type, Late Die State Dies, Original Surfaces, Frosty Luster, Twin Lakes Collection. In 1866, a new 5 Cent piece made of nickel as an alternative for the silver Liberty Seated half dime was introduced. The two coins were issued side-by-side through 1873, after which the half dime was discontinued and the Shield nickel became the coin of standard commerce. Unfortunately, nickel is a hard metal and difficult to strike resulting in rapidly aging dies. Part of the die aging problem was the intricate reverse, where stars were squeezed tightly between small rays surrounding the large 5 denomination. The rays were removed from the dies mid-1867, but failed to completely solve the cracking die problem. This survivor is accurate graded as the AU58 level. Struck from late die state dies with obverse erosion and cracks on the reverse. Mint frost is readily visible under a 10x loupe. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 holder with standard ring insert.

CAC approved examples can be counted on one hand! Three EF45s, one AU50 and one AU55. Obviously, this date remains extremely scarce in AU53 or better with EF45 being the last "affordable" grade level. GFRC is pleased to be offering one of the three CAC EF45 examples in existent. A choice original example with steely fields that is typical for higher grade specimens. An orange-gold arc covers the right obverse while reverse coloring is mottled gold and deep aquamarine.

Strike is also a significant issue for Civil War S-mints as most obverses have partial heads and weak OF AMER. When first inspecting this choice original 1864-S example, EF was my assigned graded due to full gown line and sharply raised scroll edges. It was again surprising to see the certified VF35 grade.

Cleaned $150 New May 7! Rare 1851-O Die State, Missing Star 7, Light Clean, Retoning Natural Gray, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. The 1851-O Missing Star 7 die state is a relatively new "die variety" that has become quite popular since the 1851 New Orleans date is difficult to begin with. Discovered in 2015 by Ken Rubin and verified by Gerry fortin. The missing Star 7 is the result of a minting error; most likely a greased filled die for a short period of time. The fact that Star 6 and Liberty's facial details are not disturbed is amazing. The foreign material that filled the Star 7 crevice on the die was localized leaving only a faint impression of the star's top most point. The offered example, from the AuburnNY Accordian Collection is one of the few examples seen to date. This raw Fine 12 example has been cleaned in the past but is recovering nicely with natural shades of gray. Devices are big and bold with the missing star 7 being most obvious.

A stunning 1839 Briggs 2-B closed claws Seated quarter with aquamarine-blue and rose coloring on the obverse and rose-gold on the reverse. Under a bright light, reflective fields shift the obverse aquamarine-blue into light sky blues and a pretty gold peripheral ring is exposed on the reverse. A Seated quarter graded EF40 should not have this much reflective luster but this near gem does. Strike is typical for the No Drapery design hubs. I have to call this one conservatively graded.

This late F-102a die state was previously designated "Shattered Reverse #2" by Brian Greer in his 1992 guidebook.

New May 6! Repunched 18, Reverse of 1870 (A), Gem Original, Fully Struck, CAC Approval, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. F-101 is one of a group of three proof obverse dies employed during 1871 at the Philadelphia mint. This obverse exhibits strong date repunching. Bold repunching is visible above the flag of the 1 digit and above the top loop of the 8 digit. In addition, the F-101 obverse is found with weakness in the strike of Liberty's head including a raise metal arc at the top of the head. I have seen this obverse die characteristic on all F-101 examples until this AuburnNY Accordian specimen appeared as a GFRC consignment. The 1871 F-101 Repunched 18 proof die is paired with a reverse which already has an obvious die crack along the bottom of the ribbon ends and into the lower portion of the right wreath. This reverse is a left over proof reverse die from 1870. After being paired with two separate 1870 obverse dies, this reverse is again paired with a 1871 proof obverse die, generating additional proof and business strikes. It appears that this reverse was designated as a proof reverse die during 1870 and 1871 until its final usage for business strikes in 1871. A June 2006 study of the Heritage Auction Archives by Gerry Fortin revealed that the F-101 is the second rarest of the three 1871 proof varieties. Of the twenty-three Heritage 1871 proof dimes offered at auction since 2000, about 25% were struck from the F-101 die pair. The offered example is completely struck with bold obverse and reverse devices. Mirrors present a watery texture during bright light viewing that is typical of the die pairing. Reflective luster for the F-101 proof strikes is not as crisp as seen on the more common F-102 proofs. Obverse is toned a lovely aquamarine-gold while the reverse offers classic burnt gold at the wreath. Listed in the Top 100 Varieties set and worthy of special consideration. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. A gem original offering from the AuburnNY Accordian Collection.

The 1871-CC date has a lower mintage of 1376, but the 1873 issue has a lower survival rate. There is speculation that many 1873 dated pieces were melted later in the year to provide bullion for the new Trade dollars. This is a remarkable offering that has been stored in the estate of an early Liberty Seated Collectors Club member for decades and is being brought to market by his daughter. The Philadelphia Collection includes seventeen Seated dollars with the 1873-CC being the finest condition. A choice example that is heads and shoulders above those VF25-VF30 offerings seen at major auction during the past decade.

Original $4500 New April 30! Large O, Near Choice Original, Springfield Collection. This is the large-O variety, with the telltale scattered die lumps on the reverse. The reverse was used again in 1844, as the New Orleans Mint clearly decided that quantity was more important than quality. In any case, this is an important condition census example. Larry Briggs noted no known uncirculated examples in his Seated quarter encyclopedia (1991), and since then only one has appeared, the Eliasberg/Gardner coin, which is currently in a PCGS MS63+ CAC holder. The present coin is tied for second highest graded, with the Newman NGC AU55 example sold by Heritage in November 2017 for $4,560. The opportunity to grab the #2 coin in the condition census at this price point is unusual. This brilliant, lightly-toned piece is completely struck with nearly full star centers, but the real attraction here is the condition census grade of this scarce variety.

One of the keys among the New Orleans Seated quarters, along with the 1851-O and 1852-O, this high-grade 1849-O represents a pleasing combination of rarity and technical grade. Detail is somewhat sharper than the assigned level, and there is evidence of an old cleaning on the obverse, but the coin has nicely retoned with a bit more varied color than conveyed by the photograph. This example is well-struck, with a few weak star centers, and the detail in the lower part of the eagle is pleasingly distinct. The coin is housed in a PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder and was acquired by the consignor from the Bruce Burnham collection, sold by David Lawrence in June 2003.

Original $4000 New April 30! Original, Springfield Collection. This lovely, "coin gray" 1859-S quarter exhibits what Doug Winter calls "multiple levels of demand." The date is scarce, the coin is aesthetically wholesome, and the EF grade represents a condition rarity. These coins were not saved in high-grade, and today there is not a single uncirculated piece reported by either PCGS or NGC. There is also the question of availability - PCGS Coin Facts notes that a higher example is typically seen at auction only about once per year, and many of these appearances are at price points substantially higher than the present example. As can be seen, this is an infrequent opportunity to acquire a special coin. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. Previously from Superior, 1/2003, lot 585.

New April 30! Original, Springfield Collection. An evenly toned example of the scarce 1867-S issue, with a small mintage of 48,000 pieces. There is occasional "crust," particularly in the reverse legend, but otherwise the toning is light. The most obvious mark is nicely hidden within the horizontal lines of the reverse shield. Briggs' observations on striking characteristics of 1867-S quarters are consistent with this example, which is well struck except for the stars, and which exhibits dentils that are not completely sharp. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder and acquired by the consignor from Brian Greer, May 2000.

Choice $7000 New April 30! Choice Original, Springfield Collection. The 1871-S Seated quarter doesn't get as much attention as the even rarer 1872-S, but longtime collectors of the series are aware of how tough this issue is, especially in higher grades like the present example. This multi-chromatic piece is pleasingly toned with obverse chestnut shades and reverse hues of blue and pink. The coin is well struck with full detail in the lower part of the eagle, a perpetual problem area on Seated quarters, and the star centers are nearly complete. A light line across the eagle's throat blends into the toning. GFRC recently sold an MS62 example for $8,750. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) holder. From Pinnacle Rarities, August 2004, to the present consignor.

AU50 PCGS
50064374

Original $6950 New April 30! Original, Springfield Collection. This is the toughest S-mint piece in the Seated quarter series, with a mintage of 83,000 pieces. Although other S-mint quarters were struck in lower quantities, Briggs notes that many of the 1872-S issue were likely melted in 1873. As a result, availability is the key word, and this issue is decidedly in the "least available" category. The present example has a gray "skin" and is evenly toned. The strike is typical, with flat stars as noted by Briggs for the issue. The reverse exhibits a die clash through the scroll, a well-known characteristic of the 1872-S reverse die. GFRC sold an AU55 example for $7500 in 2017. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.1 (2002-2004) holder. Sold by Brian Greer to the present consignor, who was a steady customer, in August 2003.

Choice $1350 New April 30! Briggs Plate Coin, Mirrored Obverse, Old Paper Envelope Gray Toning, CAC Approved . Yes indeed, this is the 1874 With Arrows plate coin from Brigg's The Comprehensive Encyclopedia of United States Liberty Seated Quarters. I've personally matched subtle die markers with the plates and guarantee the pedigree. A lovely example with violet-gray obverse toning typical of storage in old paper 2x2 envelopes. The patina is fairly thick but reflective luster can still be activated during bright light viewing. An above average strike with no blemishes worthy of mention. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 blue label holder with CAC approval. An ideal With Arrows type coin or perfect for a higher grade Seated quarter date and mintmark set. Please note the the obverse line from star 4 to the left facing arm is a holder scratch and not on the coin.

New April 29! Choice Original, Springfield Collection. This is a better-date Seated quarter with a lower mintage (120,000) that is often priced more like a type coin. Such opportunities are numerous throughout Seated coinage and are one of the attractions to the series. This example is moderately toned with blue-green hues throughout the protected areas including the obverse stars and reverse legend. The strike is complete, with mostly defined star centers and a touch of weakness of the eagle's left (facing) leg. Briggs 1-A, with the doubled die reverse. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder, and purchased by the consignor from Legend Numismatics in February 2002, previously from the Evergreen Collection.

New April 29! Choice Original, Springfield Collection. Dynamic shades of aqua, russet, and gold grace both sides of this scarce, San Francisco Seated quarter. With the exception of a few marks above the eagle's left wing, the surfaces are smooth and attractive. The coin is well-struck and consistent with Briggs' comments on the issue, which are spot-on: "well struck except for stars and top of Liberty's head." Briggs 2-A, with the left edge of 1 over the right side of the dentil. Housed in a PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder, and from the Jim Gray collection, sold by Bowers & Merena, 7/2004.

New April 29! Original, Springfield Collection. The rare Carson City coins of 1870-1873 are the first pieces that draw the eye whenever a group of Seated quarters comes to market. These are the key dates in the Seated dollar series as well, and for Seated dimes the critical run spans from 1871 to 1874. Within the quarter series the 1872-CC is somewhat more available than the other three coins, but this is only a relative comparison! The 1872-CC stands on its own against any other branch mint seated quarter, including the 1849-O and 1872-S. Problem-free examples are rarer still, as many Carson City coins were somewhat overweight in silver and not coined to the standard of 90% silver and 10% copper. The suboptimal alloy, combined with heavy circulation, is responsible for the lack of high-grade pieces such as the present example. This piece has somewhat of a "two-tone" appearance, a pleasing effect on circulated coinage, with blue hues in protected areas laid against a off-pink background. Surfaces are better than average for a Carson City coin of this era, with a few marks noted around the upper portion of the obverse. Housed in a PCGS Gen 3.1 (1993-1998) old green holder, purchased by the consignor from David Lawrence in June 2003 and previously from the Bruce Burnham collection.

Cleaned $4500 New April 29! Rarest San Francisco Minted Date, Glossy Luster, Old Non Abrasive Clean, Retoning Gray-Gold, Sunset Point Collection. The Liberty Seated quarter series key San Franc isco date with limited mintage of 83,000. A date that is difficult to locate in any grade or condition. Briggs speculates that, "most probably melted in 1873 creating a far greater demand than supply." This offering is part of the Sunset Point Collection and demonstrated how difficult this date is to locate well preserved and in high grade. Surfaces are glossy from an old non mechanical cleaning and are recovering with light gray and gold coloring. Fields are essentially blemish free regardless of the time in circulation. An ideal candidate for a Dansco or Whitman bookshelf album collection as nearly every set has this hole unfilled.

Choice $1995 New April 28! Price Reduction! Key Philadelphia Date, Choice Original, Fully Struck, Conservative Grading, Woodbridge Collection. The appearance of 1851 dated Liberty Seated halves on any dealer price list is an important event. All Liberty Seated dated halves dated from 1850 through 1852 were subject to silver bullion arbitrage and being melted in large quantities. Few examples survived choice to meet the collecting needs of present day collectors. Now let's focus on this wonderful offering from the Woodbridge Collection that is worthy of special attention. Lightly toned surfaces are choice and strictly original. Strike is complete with full head, hair curls and all stars having connected centrils. Reverse devices are also deeply impressed. Fields offer nice luster only with being blemish free whether viewing in hand or under a bright light. Overall, I like this 1851 Philadelphia strike and pleased to have in GFRC inventory. Freshly graded and housed in new large font NGC holder.

Well balanced in terms of originality, strike and eye appeal along with accurate grading.
