New September 25! Gem Original, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal, Classic Gray Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. Better Date. One look at this 1914 San Francisco strike is all that is required to appreciate why a Gem quality rating has been assigned. MIntage is a low 264,000 with most examples seeing heavy circulation and considerable wear. This example, from the Port Matilda Collection, is a no question gem as so well balanced between strictly original surfaces, natural circulated gray cameo toning, a full strike and accurately graded with CAC approval. There is nothing to complain about as all collector requirements are met plus some. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. A super quality offering from the Port Matilda Collection that is priced at PCGS Pricing Guide. If you feel the asking price is too high, then might I suggested that the individual CoinFacts auction records be individually reviewed. Then the appreciation for this GFRC offering will be acknowledged.

A gorgeous offering with substantial eye appeal at the VF30 grade level. Gray toned surfaces are choice with no blemishes worth mentioning. The different shades of gray, especially lighter coloring on the wear points, leads to an attractive circulated cameo apperance. Bright light viewing brings about golden hues, especially in the obverse. Strike is crisp and uniform with no points of weakness. Grading is accurate to a tad conservative. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval. Another challenging early type offering from the Port Matilda Collection that is from the individual's personal collection.

Choice $1275 New September 25! Small 3, Choice Original, Uniform Gray Patina, Small PCGS Population, Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. 1803 Overton 104 examples infrequently appear on the market in mid circulated grades. A quick check of CoinFacts indicates that only two examples in the Fine 12 through VF 35 grade range have been auctioned since early 2014. Auction prices at the VF25/V30 grade level are $1300. Now that we understand the rarity of this die variety and date, let's take a look at the Port Matilda offering. Firstly, this is not a buy and resell event via GFRC. Portl Matilda consignor is divesting duplicates towards raising cash for a substantial acquisition. This offering is strictly original with natural toned surfaces and no blemishes whatsoever. Uniform gun metal gray patina covered both obverse and reverse with light shades on the wear points. Surfaces are a dull gray with no hints of reflectivity; an important validation of untouched surfaces. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Choice $1450 New September 25! Choice Original, Uniform Gun Metal Gray-Blue Toning, Mirrored Surfacres, Fully Struck, Port Matilda Collection. This lovely 1870 Philadelphia struck Seated dollar is worthy of special consideration by collectors of the series. Eye appeal is high given the combination of classic gun metal gray-blue toned surfaces, mirrored fields and a complete strike.

The obverse toning melts to reveal lightly mirrored fields covered with transparent aquamarine blue patina. The reverse is essentially identical to the obverse with coloring most prominent around the legend and denomination. Rims are sharp with minimum wear. Blemish wise, there is one mark in the right obverse field to the right of the arm that can be seen on GFRC images. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

Original $155 New September 25! Underrated Date, Original Light Gray Surfaces, Well Struck. Accurately Graded, Port Matilda Collection. The 1850 New Orleans date sports a high mintage of nearly 2.5 million but a survival rate is very low. For example, PCGS population report indicates 29 pieces graded in all VF graded and 40 specimens at EF40 and EF45 combined. Was overseas transport and melting the core reason for the very low survival rates? GFRC is pleased to offer this example that is accurately graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Obverse is choice with medium gray patina and mild circulated cameo appearance. The reverse is similar with same toning other than the area containing eagle's legs, claws and arrows.

Despite the relatively strong mintage of 260,775, the 1848 date is challenging to locate and very scarce. It's limited availability is consistent with many of the mintmarked coins of the 1840's with much lower mintages per David Akers. When available, the typical example is VF or EF with some AUs to be had. Very rare in mint state with the finest graded at PCGS being a lone MS64. This example offered old time copper -gold surfaces and residual luster. Strike is bold. Accurately graded and housed in new large font NGC holder. A fair value at the asking price.

Original $575 New September 24! Underrated Date, Frosty Original Surfaces, Bold Cartwheel Luster, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded. An underrated date with respect to the current PCGS pricing guide. Mintage is a relatively high 795,300 but a low survival rate leads to today's limited availability. I could not pass up adding this frosty original example to the GFRC price list due to the swirling cartwheel luster and just a hint of gold toning. Strike is fully executed with nicely rounded stars, a bold scroll on the shield and all reverse devices being complete. Accurately graded as there may some some very light friction on the knee along with a few scattered hairlines that are easily seen within the frosty fields. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. Locating Seated halves at the AU58 grade level is becoming harder by the day. The 1869 offering presents a quality coin at a fair price.

Choice $750 New September 22! Near Gem Original, Fully Struck, Blue-Rose Patina, Reflective Luster, Accurately Graded. CAC Approval on September 21, 2017. This 1842 half dime offering is for fans of strict originality and old time toning. This piece is a near gem for the grade with some muted luster holding back the piece from MS65 grade level. The luster is muted due to thick old time toning that includes rose and blues throughout obverse and mostly blues on the reverse. Strike is excellent with all devices fully impressed. Surfaces are reflective under bright light as some of the thick patina become transparent to the underlying surfaces. There are no blemishes whatsoever to discuss. Old time quality housed in old NGC holder with standard ring insert. Part of a larger Liberty Seated half dime deal purchased at the 2017 Central States show and worthy of consideration.

A choice original example of the 1806 Overton 118 die pairing in late die state and badly cracked reverse. Carefully inspection of the reverse, on the GFRC offered coin, shows a light toning color gradient from left to right (lighter gray, then darker gray) along the die crack that bisects the reverse. If one closely inspects the reverse strike, there is shelf metal present resulting in the left side of reverse being slight more elevated than the right. This results is enhanced wear and toning. Overall, this Draped Bust half is strictly original and accurately graded. CAC approval validates what is plain to the collector's eye. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder and worthy of special consideration. Please note the white diagonal line at 9:00 is a scratch on the PCGS holder and obviously not on this lovely draped bust half.

Why this lovely 1901 San Francisco $5 half eagle is not graded a full MS65 is beyond me. But then again, this gorgeous example is housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and graded during a period of conservative grading opinions. One immediately notes the swirling satiny cartwheel luster that simply glows during in hand viewing. Adding a light source amplifies the cartwheel luster to the point of being absolutely stunning. Strike is hammered on top of the luster. Blemish wise, there is nothing worth reporting in this description. If I were collecting $5 Liberty half eagles, this piece would immediately go into that collection as so attractive. Why not finish the superlatives with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation.

Mintage is only 31,300 with most surviving examples being in lower circulated grades. This date is prohibitively rare in Mint State with two examples known. Most collectors will search out choice original circulated examples for their date and mintmark sets. This new GFRC offerings should definitely be considered for several reasons.

This surviving example is well preserve and acquired a darker in hand viewed gray-gold patina over the years. The fun starts when tilting ever so slightly under a light source. The obverse glows with bright gold shades surrounding the stars and moving inward to the rose center....so pretty and pleasing. Reverse is similar with yellow gold at the legend that quickly transitions to sky blue on the eagle. GFRC images are ineffective in capturing the reflective coloring so please believe my description. I really like this piece! There a several hairlines to the immediate right of the drapery that account for the PR64 grade.

About 20% have been designated as Cameo based on the PCGS population report. Within the non Cameo population are excellent values and this Missouri Collection offering qualifies for that recognition. Mirrors are very reflective and toned light rose on both obverse and reverse. There is no question as to the originality. Eye appeal is that of a higher grade but obverse field imperfections limit to PF63, though conservative. 10x loupe inspection revealed a lint mark by star 4 and a few wispy hairlines while the right field has a mild divot as made. Reverse is blemish free. A quality Liberty Seated quarter offering from the Missouri Collection that is fairly priced for the overall eye appeal.

This is a superior Liberty Seated quarter proof at the PR64CAM grade level as fields offer watery texture and flashy reflections. Stunning might be the operative word! GFRC images simply cannot do this piece justice due to straight on lighting and imaging that only capture the gray and gold coloring. Tilting this piece, ever so slightly under bright light, releases bold mirrors. Reverse has a lovely dark blue toning arc from eagle's left wing up to the scroll.

Briggs assigns an R5 rarity rating for all grades. Stored in a paper 2x2 envelope for years acquiring a blue rose patina throughout obverse and reverse. The coloring appears a bit unnatural in terms of acceptable toning and would be assigned a Questionable Color opinion at the TPGs.

The 1869 date in the Liberty Seated quarter series is challenging regardless of Philadelpha or San Francisco strikes. San Francisco output was limited to 76,000 pieces from a single die pair. The obverse die quickly cracked leaving bold radial die cracks throughout the stars and date. Briggs calls this late die state out in his guidebook; this offering matches all the late die state requirements. The example, from the Sunset Point Collection has plenty of mint frost surrounding the main devices and stars and appears to be conservatively graded given the significant amount of remaining luster. Surfaces are essentially blemish free with a transparent golden layer that appears in the GFRC images. Housed in PCGS old green holder with standard ring insert.

The proof like fields are quite active and pleasing during bright light viewing. Fully struck from an obverse die that exhibits considerable die rust throughout the gown and shield.

The 1874 With Arrows date, in the Seated quarter series, is more challenging than its 1873 With Arrows counterpart. Mintage is lower (471,000 vs. 1,271,000) as are the PCGS populations in AU and mint state. This example is raw and was stored in a 2x2 paper envelope in the Sunset Point Collection as the consignor maintain all his pieces in original holders or 2x2s. A closed inspection has convinced that MS62 is an accurate grade. The obverse toning in a combination of aquamarine and gold surrounding light rose at the center while the reverse offers a pretty rainbow arc at the left rim and gold at the balance of the rims. Strike is complete. Dies are clashed including arcing clash marks above the date. There are no blemishes to report after a close 10x loop inspection.

The 1886 Philadelphia date sports a tiny business strike mintage of 5,000 piece and is the rarest Philly issue in the Liberty Seated quarter series. Separating circulation strikes from proof issues is quite challenging as both were struck with polished dies or using polished planchets. The 1886 business strike can be evaluated by two important diagnostic; die polish lines in the lower reverse shield and obverse stars having well defined centril. Proof issues are known to lack star centrils. This business strike offering, from the Sunset Point Collection, is strictly original, accurately graded and housed in SEGS holder. Both obverse and reverse fields are mirrored with the reverse having close to watery fields. All business strike diagnostic are available and evident, therefore SEGS provided an accurate attribution. PCGS population report indicates that few circulated examples are known and when brought to auction, the typical selling price is $1000 regardless of the assigned grade. I definitely would rather have a nice AU specimen in my collecting rather than a worn VF. Please give this offering special consideration regardless of the SEGS holder.

Cleaned $2150 New September 18! No Arrows, Rare Date, Low Survival Rate, Cleaned, Retoning Light Gold, Blemish Free, Sunset Point Collection. The 1853 No Arrows date is well recognized as one of the Liberty Seated quarter series rarities. Mintage is report at 44,200 with two delivers of about equal amounts in February 9 and 17, 1853. As the value of silver bullion content exceeded face value, many were immediately exported and melted producing a rare collectible for present numismatists. PCGS population reports indicate single digit population in most grades with very limited auction appearanced. This example, from the Sunset Point Collection, was purchased raw a decade ago and now returns to the market. Surfaces are a bit too glossy from an old cleaning but surprisingly, completely blemish free. Strike is adequate with the piece beginning to acquire a light golden patina. A no question rarity to fill that hole in your Dansco or Whitman set album. Fair pricing captures both the rarity and also the surface conditions.

A lovely 1853 New Orleans surviving example with bold obverse strike and perfectly original surfaces. A choice original quality rating has been applied due to the superior bright light performance that is stunning. The darker olive gray patina is quite transparent and simply melts to expose sky blue fields and golden stars when viewed under a light source. The color transition is much more apparent on the obverse while the reverse shifts to combination blues and rose hues. There are some minor blemishes in the right obverse field but the bright light performance far outweighs those marks. Housed in old NGC holder with standard white ring insert and smaller reverse hologram . A choice original duplicate from the Sunset Point Collection that deserves special consideration.

Most surviving examples will be found in the Very Good through Fine grade range as is the case with this original example. Obverse rims are bold with six full letters in LIBERTY presence. The reverse rim has barely worn through under (U)NITED and the olive leaves. Surfaces are toned a medium gun metal gray with blue shades evident under a light source. This example is entirely blemish free with no marks, lines or other anomalies. I'm comfortable in indicating that TPG grading is a strong possibility given the natural coloring. An important offering from the Sunset Collection of Liberty Seated quarters and ideal for a Dansco or Whitman album set. Fairly priced!

Market Acceptable $1250 New September 18! Closed 3, Rare Business Strike, Ancient Dip, Retoning Light Gold, Conservative Grading, Sunset Point Collection. The 1873 Closed 3 date is an R5 rarity in all grades. Locating a business strike example that is fully choice may take a decade and some luck to boot. Mintage is listed at 40,000 but few survived due to melting at the Philadelphia mint during transition to With Arrows dies. Actually, proof examples, with a mintage of only 600 are more available and caution is always advised to check for business strike diagnostics when considering a purchase. This Closed 3 example, from the Sunset Point Collection, is a no question business strike with reverse die marker in the lower shield. ICG has net graded this example at the VF20 level though device details are closer to VF30/VF35. Surfaces have seen a long ago dip or other form of non mechanical cleaning leaving glossy reflective luster. Surfaces are recovering with in hand gray coloring that shifts to light gold under a bright light. The ICG net grade of VF20 is quite fair in my opinion given the rarity and probability of locating a better example. PCGS price guides lists $1250 for the VF20 grade with two CoinFacts auction records that are in alignment. This example is therefore priced at the same level. A true rarity in the Seated quarter series and an important offering from the Sunset Point Collection.

The example, from the Missouri Collection is the Small Head design. Surfaces are choice with minimal abraisons and just light wear. Bright light viewing reveals reflective cartwheel luster from mirrored fields. Strike is well executed and the overall visual presentation is quite pleasing.

Mintage of 173,000 and very scarce in mintage as none were saved by the banks of that era. Q. David Bowers comments that, "In circulated grades: The mintage of 1841 was fairly high, but the availability of circulated specimens belies this. In general, fewer circulated 1841 dollars appear on the market than do those dated 1840, although nearly three times as many 1841s were struck. The explanation for this is not known." One might consider the 1841 date to be underrated at current pricing levels. This lovely AU58 example offers bold frosty cartwheel luster and is perfectly original. Strike is complete with rounded stars while both obverse and reverse dies are lightly clashed. Blemish wise, there is one bag mark in the right obverse field immediately to the right of the drapery.

A low mintage of only 20,000 and the first year of limited Seated dollar strikes at the Philadelphia mint. Q. David Bowers comments on the 1844 low mintage date as follows, "The year 1844 was notable for the first of low-mintage silver dollars of this design. Scant supplies of silver bullion continued to be one of the main problems facing the mint, and the situation was not made easier by the fact that many United States silver coins were shipped to Europe and Asia in payment for import transactions. Only one delivery of silver dollars was made this year; that of 20,000 pieces on December 31st." This surviving example, from the Missouri Collection, is accurately graded as the AU50 level. Surfaces are original with light gray patina that harbors shades of rose and blues also. Crisp steely luster is evident when viewing under a light source. Strike is complete and blemishes are to a minimum. All 1844 Seated dollars were struck from a single die pair. The obverse is doubled at the shield and scroll and there is an extra misplaced digit in the lower gown folds. Housed in newer NGC holder.

Market Acceptable $2250 New September 14! Rare Low Mintage Date, Reflective Gun Metal Gray-Blue Surfaces, Attractive Overall Appearance, Missouri Collection. A rare date in the Liberty Seated dollar series with a mintage of only 7,500. The 1850s begins a timeframe when Seated dollar production plummeted at the Philadelpha mint. Q. David Bowers calls out this fact and provides a potential reason for the mint moving to strike small sized gold dollars rather than the unpopular heavy silver dollars. He states the following, "The production of Liberty Seated silver dollars at the Philadelphia Mint hit an all-time low in 1850. The reason for this is not clear in government records, but I believe the explanations are simple. To expand on the commentary given under 1849, the following seems to be a likely scenario: The gold dollar, introduced in 1849, was popular in government circles and at the Mint, and saw extensive use by the public. At the same time, the silver dollar was not popular and was widely criticized. The year 1850 saw a tremendous production of gold dollars, amounting to 481,953 at the Philadelphia Mint alone, a quantity far greater than had been made of any Liberty Seated silver dollar. It seems to me that the Treasury was trying to promote the new gold dollar as the coin of choice of this denomination, and to minimize the silver dollar." This surviving example currently resides in a newer NGC holder with AU Details designation. GFRC has chosen to assign a Market Acceptable quality rating as the overall eye appeal and coloring is acceptable coupled with an abscence of any mechanical cleaning. In other words, this piece has no hairlines whatsoever. Surfaces offer a steely reflective luster along with gun metal gray patina. There are a few scattered field ticks but none distracting. Struck with Open 5 obverse die along with bold repunching under the 0 digit in the date. Not every Liberty Seated dollar collector can locate and afford a strictly original example of the 1850 date in AU condition. A problem free AU55 example will be a $3500 to $4500 expenditure depending on eye appeal. This offering, from the Missouri Collection, provides similar eye appea but at a substantially lower price.

Mintage of 255,700 but most were shipped to northern China for international commerce. Q. David Bowers states that, "In circulated grades: the vast majority of the mintage of over a quarter million 1859 Liberty Seated dollars went to the Orient, where they were soon melted. Examples of this high-mintage date are scarce today in all grades." The surviving example offers bold high end AU details but has been cleaned. There are hairlines throughout the obverse fields and below the eagle on the reverse. Surfaces have retoned an even gray during in hand viewing while a light source exposes strong golden hues. Strike is complete. The darker toning streaks on the reverse appear to be from typical rubber band contact. In summary, a rare date due to low surviving population that is priced consistent with the surface conditions. Housed in newer NGC holder. From the Missouri Collection of Liberty Seated dollars.

Market Acceptable $2250 New September 8! Difficult Date at AU Grade Level, Hammered Strike, Gray-Gold Patina, Residual Luster, Accurately Graded, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. Locating any 1858 San Francisco dime at AU grade levels will prove to be quite challenging. This example is the F-102 web-book plate coin at www.seateddimevarieties.com and has been in the Gerry Fortin reference collection since 2004. Up until 2004, I struggled to locate a strong example of the F-102 die pairing and settled for this AU55 specimen in raw condition. Let's go through the highlights considering PCGS recently assigned an AU Details - Cleaned grade. First of all, this example has a bold hammered strike that one does not often see for the 1858 San Francisco date. Most examples are from the F-103 die pairing which has ongoing weak strikes. Next is toning. The obverse center is toned a deep gun metal gray and surrounded by golden shades at the stars and into the rim. The reverse is toned a consistent copper-rose with plenty of residual luster during bright light viewing. The PCGS AU Details grade was assigned due to faint vertical hairlines across Liberty's body. These can be seen with 10x loop under a light source. The hairlines do not extend into the left and right obverse fields. On the reverse, there are very faint hairlines between ONE and DIME otherwise the surrounding wreath is original. With the advent of technical grading, this boldly struck and nicely toned 1858-S dime is detailed graded. I paid a large sum to acquire and have priced it to reflect the obverse hairlines. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. From the Gerry Fortin reference collection. Unfortunately, not every Seated dime in that collection is perfectly original as die variety collecting does necessitate some compromises at time.

Choice $285 New September 6! Rare Type 1 Reverse Offering, Choice Original Copper Gold Patina, Reflective Luster, Indiana Collection. All 1878 dimes struck with Type 1 reverse hub are considered full R5 rarity. Locating any example will take considerable searching and much patience. GFRC is so pleased to offer this choice original example from the Indiana Collection. The lightly mirrored fields and overal finish are typical of F-102 strikes seen to date. Transparent copper-rose patina consistently covers both obverse and reverse and allows the reflective luster to radiate through. Sharp wire rims are present and validate the assigned grade. Originally purchased from Gerry Fortin, the collector, years ago and finally returning to market after the Indiana Collection consignor purchased a PCGS MS64 example from my personal collection. Worthy of special consideration.

New September 6! Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Light Rose Toning, Hammered Strike, Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Indiana Collection. At first glance one would assume this lustrous 1888-S dime would be graded at the MS63 level. There is satiny cartwheel luster throughout the obverse and reverse with darker rose shades on the reverse. Strike is completely hammered with bold devices and sharp device lettering. The F-101 die variety is not known for its bold strikes and mostly comes with softly defined features so this example is pleasing to have in GFRC inventory. PCGS graded this piece at the MS62 level. Why? There are some very faint hairlines in the obverse right field that can be seen with a 10x loupe. These lines are not distracting in terms of surface luster. In today's world of technical grading, the assigned grade is accurate but the eye appeal is far superior. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. From the Indiana Collection.

Choice $525 New September 5! Better Date, Choice Original, Light Creamy Gold Patina, Residual Luster, Accurately Graded. A desirable GFRC offering in the growing Barber coinage product line. This 1913 Philadelphia strike sports a sub 500,000 mintage with low survival rates at the EF and AU grade levels.

This attractive specimen, with CAC approval, is well above average with choice original surfaces and residual luster. Obverse retains frosty luster that radiates through soft gold-rose patina while the reverse is a bit more muted. Strike is completely executed including the pesky lower right eagle leg and arrows. In terms of blemishes, there are two ancient marks on the obverse; one in the lower left field and another at the intersection of the cheek and neck. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.

Choice $750 New September 5! Choice Original, Golden-Gray Patina, Residual Luster, Accurately Graded. The year was 1820 with the United States population at a tiny 9,600,00! Missouri and Maine were added as new states within the framework of the Missouri Compromise. This choice original Capped Bust half was struck that year with low mintage and only eight Overton die varieties identified. The O-106 die pairing is common but this GFRC example is well above average in terms of preservation state. Surfaces are perfectly original and offer some residual luster under a light source. A transparent golden gray patina coveres both obverse and reverse. Strike is excellent but with some weakness in the upper left eagle wing. After a careful 10x loupe inspection, I could only find a few scattered hairlines that are fully toned over and consistent with the assigned grade. CAC approval validates the well balance nature of this piece along with the strict originality. Housed in 2013 generation holder with blue and white label and edge view insert.

CAC Approval on August 30, 2017. Bold frosty luster and a hammered strike are the hallmarks for this 1845 Philadelphia struck dime that originally arrived to market via the Frog Run Sale circa 2004 in Baltimore. At that sale, it realized nearly $1300 and a strong price for that time period. Head details and hair curls are completely defined as are the high relief stars. Reverse strike is also complete with every vein in the wreath leaves fully defined. The F-102 die pairing matches Obverse 1 with the leftover reverse of 1844. Die cracks are readily evident throught S(T)ATES O(F) with the die crack through the T descending down the left wreath. Grade rarity also needs to be touched upon. PCGS has graded 24 at the MS63 level with auction records in the $900 to $1600 range. In recent years, few MS64 examples have reach the market with the Florida Collection specimen not purchased via auction but through private treaty.

Choice $935 New August 30! Crusty Choice Original, Old Paper Envelope Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Tenafly Collection. If strict originality is your cup of tea, then this 1840 Liberty Seated half dollar is worth considering. Surfaces are choice with thick crusty old envelope toning that is similar to that found on Newman Seated halves.

Strike is nearly complete with just a touch of weakness at star 5 and on the lower leg eagle leg. In terms of blemishes, two faint and fully toned over lines in the obverse right field holds me back from a Gem quality rating. This piece is so close to being a gem.
