Choice $800 New January 19! Early Die State, Choice Original, Rich Gray-Olive Patina, Typical Strike, Accurately Graded. Locating choice 1847 New Orleans Seated quarters will take some patience as collectors are faced with weak obverse strikes and problematic surfaces. Though this date has a mintage of 368,000, few examples are known in mint state. In circulated grades, this date is available but many are not what I would consider as choice. CAC has only approved 19 examples in all grades. This new GFRC example offers a richly toned obverse with gun metal gray patina and golden gray on the reverse. Surfaces are vewry well preserved and free of any major distraction. Strike is typical with flat head and breasts along with weak definition of the eagle's lower left leg and claws. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. CAC approval for the no question originality and accurate grading. An important offering from those attempting a Liberty Seated date and mintmark set.

Choice $6150 New January 19! No Arrows, Choice Original, Steely Luster, Rose Blue Patina, Fully Struck, Accurately Graded. No Arrows example with reported mintage of 44,200. A very scarce date in nearly all grades due to silver arbitrage during the 1850 through early 1853 time frame. Circulated survivors are few, especially choice. GFRC is pleased to be offering this PCGS AU55 graded example. Originally sold into the Iowa Collection during December 2014. Satiny cartwheel luster combines with deep blue and rose patina to create substantial eye appeal. Completely struck with high relief stars and main devices. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder along with CAC approval. CAC has approved 18 examples with this offering being the only specimen in all AU grades.

84741484

Choice $4500 New January 19! No Arrows, So Rare Choice, Uniform Light Gray Patina, Blemish Free Surfaces, Accurately Graded. The 1853 No Arrows date was a short lived issue as the Philadelphia mint transitioned quickly to the Arrows and Rays design, early in 1853, to denote a lower silver weight planchet. Mintage is reported at 44,200 and I suspect that many were caught up with silver arbitrage along with quarters and halves dated 1851 and 1852. Suvivors are few with PCGS population in grades Good 4 through AU58 totaling only sixty pieces. That is 0.13% of the mintage. Some examples were saved by East Coast collectors resulting in another twenty mint state pieces in the PCGS report. One of the issues with this date is finding choice examples. Due to such a low survival rate, the chance for choice examples is impacted. Checking CAC population report indicates only nine circulated examples with CAC approval from both PCGS and NGC. This example is the only VF35 with two at EF40 and one at AU55. The AU55 specimen is also available on the GFRC price list after being released from the Iowa Collection. Having said all this, let's look at the offered example. Surfaces are toned a light gray with faint golden hues under a light source. The original strike was well executed as all stars have connected centrils and the eagle's claws are fully defined. A 10x loupe inspection revealed no blemishes worth noting. This is a no question rare date that belongs in one of the better advanced collections being built. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval.

Choice $1385 New January 19! Choice Original, Beautiful Satiny Cartwheel Luster, Intermixed Teal, Rose and Gold Patina, Accurately Graded. A perfect With Arrows type coin for an AU or Mint State type set. Quality Liberty Seated quarters are always challenging to locate so those with CAC approval should garner close attention. That is the case with this lovely 1873 With Arrows example. Perfectly original with uniform teal gold patina that remains transparent to the underlying cartwheel luster. Overall strike is well executed and balanced. Original mint state is easily seen throughout the main devices and fields and undisturbed. The assigned MS63 grade is accurate given that the thick patina dampens some of the luster. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. If you are a fan of strict originality and natural toning then this lovely quarter is for you. I would rather have this example in my collection rather than a blast white example that might achieve a higher grade.

Choice $2950 New January 19! Key Date, Rare EF/AU Grade Level, Gray-Rose Patina, Completely Struck, Residual Luster, Blemish Free, Conservatively Graded. 1853-O No Arrows strikes have a limited mintage of 160,000 but many were melted as a result of the silver planchet weight change during that year. A single die pair produced the entire mintage and is easily recognized by a very weak date. Many survivors are weakly struck according to Blythe with the 1 and 8 digits worn away in mid to lower circulated grades. The numismatic hobby is lucky to have this surviving example from the Dr. Glenn Peterson collection that have been off the market for decades. Housed in a PCGS old green holder with conservative grading as I though this piece was full EF45 when first inspected. Rather it is graded EF40. Fields provide ample residual luster under a light source. Surfaces are toned with thin rose-gold and blue patina that will have a net gray apperance during in hand viewing. Strike is excellent. Just back from CAC with green bean approval. If hunting for an 1853-O No Arrows upgrade for a date and mintmark set, then now is the time to take immediate action. Coins of this rarity and quality will not sit around too long.

A choice VG08 example with classic low grade circulated cameo eye appeal. Fields are toned gun metal gray-blue. Rims and denticles are nicely elevated and well defined thus the accurate grading.

Mintage for the 1866-S date is a tiny 28,000 pieces with a slightly higher survival rate than late 1850s strikes. This original example is covered with crusty gray-brown patina on both sides. There are a few toned over lines on the reverse that are not distracting. Eye appeal is quite pleasing if a fan of old time original gray toning.

A well circulated issue with VF and EF examples being scarce. AU level pieces arrive infrequently to market and when seen, they are typically graded AU58. This orange-gold patina'ed specimen appeared at the 2019 FUN show as a surprise consignment from the Vicksburg Collection. A near choice example with ample frosty luster and active cartwheels.

Strike is essentially hammered with deeply impressed devices on both sides. After a close 10x loupe inspection, I may have found some rub that would justify the assigned AU58 grade.

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 20į 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.

New January 17! Special 20% Price Reduction - Choice Original, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

Reverse is entirely blemish free while the upper left obverse field has a disturbance that can be seen in the GFRC images. Let's remember that a VF20 graded silver piece saw circulation for a number of years and will aquire an occasional blemish. Key is the strict originality and accurate grading that was rewards by CAC.

A wonderful 1877-CC Liberty Seated quarter that is a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Why? Letís start with brilliant frosty luster with vibrant cartwheel effects. This piece tickles the eyes during bright light viewing. Surfaces are perfectly original with the obverse exhibiting vertical die polish lines that could have been improperly assumed to be hairlines during grading. Strike is absolutely hammered with every tiny device detail being completed impressed. Some minor steel gray patina is seen surrounding the obverse stars. This Carson City strike is a near gem and I'm still trying to find the reason for not awarding a Gem quality rating. Grading appears to be conservative also. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Another fine Liberty Seated quarter from the Cold Quarters Collection.

New January 17! Gem Original, Satiny Reflective Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Hammered Strike, Huge Eye Appeal, Vicksburg Collection. Let's start the description for this gorgeous 1855-O Seated half with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as I love this piece. Strike has to be one of the best seen with high relief devices throughout obverse and reverse. I really can't remember seeing such a well struck reverse with elevated devices above the surrounding fields. But strike is only half of the quality equation. The satiny cartwheel luster has rich reflective qualities and is so pleasing during bright light viewing. Fields have a few micro ticks of no consequence. Overall eye appeal is that of a much higher grade. Why this piece resides in an MS61 holder is beyond me but just arrived at the FUN show as a consignment from the Vicksburg Collection. Sell said the consignor. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and no CAC submission.

New January 8! Rare Early Die State F-101 Example R6, Choice Original, Uniform Gray Patina, Soft Satiny Luster, Ex. Outback and Saw Mill Run Collections. Wow is all that I can say upon viewing this incredible 1840 New Orleans F-101 strike graded AU58 with CAC approval. Liberty Seated dime variety specialist can appreciate the rarity of this offering for multiple reason. First, 1840-O dimes saw heavy circulation with low survival rate in upper grades and especially choice. Secondly, examples of the Large O F-101 die pairing struck with early die state dies are essentially non existant until this piece arrived in the Saw Mill Run Collection consignment. Nearly all F-101 die pair examples were struck from lapped dies in the F-101a die state. The offered example is fully choice with uniform gun metal gray patina. Strike is crisp and the only issue holding this piece from a GFRC Gem designation is a faint toned over micro line across Liberty's mid section. This rare dime is freshly graded and housed in NGC large font label holder with CAC approval. Part of two significant collection; Outback and Saw Mill Run. Are you next on this list?

This key date in the With Stars design type is so under graded. This is a no question choice original VF30+ example with perfect surfaces. Strike is complete on the obverse while the reverse does exhibit some weakness on the lower wreath leaves and bow knot. Toning is antique gray as one would expect from unmolested silver surfaces. Mintage is a meager 31,300. A super example with CAC approval and housed in PCGS old green holder. This is the type of value that advanced collectors should be purchasing for the long term.

New January 8! Rare Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Full Strike. Ex. Outback and Newtown Collections. A JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Second time this CAC approved 1856-S example is handled by GFRC and there is a good reason why. CAC has only approved 12 total pieces with only two in all VF grades and two in both EF grades. Now think about that point for a moment as only four examples are choice enough to be approved in better circulated grades. This is example is no question original with rose gray obverse patina that turns to darker shades at the rims. The reverse offers similar coloring with less rose and more of a gun metal gray appearance. Strike is reasonable but not full as there is some weakness at the gown line. In terms of aesthetics, the stars are fully struck while there is weakness in the upper wreath leaves. Surfaces are essentially untouched except for a toned over mark in the right obverse field near stars 9 and 10. This mark is faintly visible on the GFRC images as old and completely toned over. Housed in older PCGS holder with blue label and standard ring insert. CAC approval is 100% warranted based on the other examples that I've seen of this date.. A qaulity offering formerly part of the Newtown and Outback collections that should be immediately scooped up as so difficult to find so choice.

Choice $1500 New January 8! F-103 Plate Coin, Choice Original, Ebony-Gray Gun Metal Patina, Typical Weak Strike For Variety, Accurately Graded. This 1858-S F-103 Seated dime is most special to me. It was one of the first Seated dimes purchased from Bob Levi's collection during August 1989. Bob ran Maine Gold & Silver in the South Portland, Maine area. I would frequent his coin shop as just a few blocks away from Fairchild Semiconductor office. Once Bob learned that I was starting to build a Seated dime date and mintmark set, he offered coins from his set. This 1858-S dime is one of my first purchases. This piece is perfect original with ebony-gray patina and considerable eye appeal. Many F-103 strikes come with weak heads and gown lines but also weak lower reverse wreath leaves. This example is typical with PCGS understanding the strike and assigning an accurate EF40 grade. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert.

Choice $2975 New January 8! Important Key Date, Choice Original Surfaces, Uniform Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. Ex. Outback and Newtown Collections. Key Civil War date in a special preservation state. Serious Liberty Seated dime collectors recognize how difficult it is to located choice examples of the 1860 New Orleans date. Mintage is tiny at 40,000 with most being lost and rediscovered in Civil War battlefields. Then there is the Type 1 obverse design hub that has weak relief and wears down quickly. Probably 80% of the surviving examples have some amount of environmental damage or have been repaired enough to be certified by the TPGs. This example is different and offers traditional gray patina that we associate with natural toned silver; it is one of the few I've seen. GFRC originally sold this example into the Newtown Collection after locating privately. Tthe Newtown Collection consigner upgraded this example and then sold into the Outback Collection. Now it is back with GFRC for another release back to the marketplace. If you are a passionate Liberty Seated dime fan, then consider this example even if your coin is a slightly higher grade. The eye appeal should exceed most that are available. Housed in 2013 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval.

This rare date quarter is perfectly original and belongs in an advanced collection. Strike is typical with weakness on Liberty's head and gown line, otherwise the reverse strike is well executed with nearly all arrow feather defined. This piece is essentially blemish free with only a tiny line in the field at the right wing. The 1858-S date is an extreme rarity in mint state as few are known. Population in EF40 and EF45 are in the low teens but I suspect that many are marginal pieces and not fully choice and original as this example.

New January 6! FUN Show Price Reduction, WB-1, Rare Small Date Obverse, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Golden-Brown Patina, Oregon Beaver Collection. One of the challenging die variety rarities in the Liberty Seated half dollar series that is listed in the Redbook and on major price guides. Bill Bugert, in his Federal Register series on Liberty Seated half dollars, indicates that, "the first two months mintage, January and February, are generally accepted to include the small date varieties (WB-1, WB-2) althought the initial 1842 delivery of those coins on February 28, 1842 included some coins dated 1841. The remaining months are of the medium date mintage." On the WB-1 Small Date variety, the reverse strike is weak with poorly defined left leg, arrow feathers and left/right claws. This characteristic is present on the Oregon Beaver specimen. On the offered example, fields are lightly mirrored and covered with a transparent skin of gray-gold patina. Surfaces are essentially blemish free at the assigned VF35 grade level with only a small mark by Liberty's foot being noted. Obverse strike is also weak resulting in overall grading being conservative. Based on wear, this example is a full EF40. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important opportunity for serious Liberty Seated half dollar collectors to acquire an R5 date and reverse pairing die variety.

A near gem quality rating would have been provided but there are a few subtle contact marks on the obverse that held this one back. These marks are not distracting but must be accounted for. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert that dates back to the late 1990s.

In terms of blemishes, there are several ancient toned over shallow lines between the right facing wing and AM(ERICA). If one swirls the coin enough times under a bright light, those lines will appear resulting in the MS62 being technical accurate. Again eye appeal is of a higher grade.

There were no Trade dollar circulation strikes produced during 1878, The Philadelphia mint struck 900 proofs during the January through May timeframe with a fair number going unsold to collectors and distributed to local dealers for bullion value. Survivors are readily available in the PR61 through PR64 grade range. At PR65, the population drops off significantly with a substantial jump in prices. It is my pleasure to offer this lovely 1878 PCGS PR64 specimen from the Cumberland County Collection. This piece managed to survive with near gem original surfaces. Fields offer mirrored glass characteristics during bright light inspection. The reverse mirrors are especially crisp due to a bit lighter toning. Overall coloring is a brownish gold with faint blues at the peripheries. Strike is absolutely hammered. A few wispy hairlines in the right obverse field hold this one back from full gem status. Accurately graded and housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. Please note that photographing this lovely 1878 proof strike proved to be most challenging.

New December 30! F-101a, Business Strike From Proof Dies, Expectional Eye Appeal, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Full Strike, Conservative Grading, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. . An exceptional 1882 Philadelphia with superior eye appeal. A case study for old time originality and paper board toning. Under the thick patina is frosty luster. Under a light source, the luster is active with pleasing cartwheels. Strike is complete with all devices and motifs clearly detailed. A careful 10x loupe inspection revealed a single ancient tick on Liberty's left facing forearm; nothing else! Why is this lovely dime not at the MS64 level or rewarded with a Gold CAC bean? Honestly, I expect a Gold CAC for this one. Maybe the luster is just not bold enough to secure MS64 certification? Surfaces and strike are all there to support a higher grade. I'm calling this one conservatively graded. Housed in old NGC Fatty holder with CAC approval. Holder is also in pristine condition! Purchased at the 2002 August ANA show and the F-101a web-book plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors. Yes, the asking price is high but as Jim O'Donnell would say to me at a major show, "Go find another one like this!"

New December 23! Price Reduction Through FUN Show! Choice Original, Gray Patina with Golden Highlights, Accurately Graded, Outback Collection. A superior example of the 1825/4(2) date that is as choice as one could desire. 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.
