1917-D Buffalo Nickel, Fine+
Year: 1917D
Condition: Fine-15
Description: Much of the coinage produced during the period of the First World War was uneven in quality at best. The 1917 to 1919 Buffalo Nickels were no exception. This is a solid Fine+, but like many from the Denver Mint this year, the date logotype is not bold. Otherwise a problem free example with 3/4 of a horn.

1917-D Buffalo Nickel, Fine+
Year: 1917D
Condition: Fine-15
Description: Much of the coinage produced during the period of the First World War was uneven in quality at best. The 1917 to 1919 Buffalo Nickels were no exception. This is a solid Fine+, similar to that coin offered as #3812, but with a bolder date. Conversely, it shows some of the toning streaks common to original, uncleaned examples due to minor problems with alloy mix. Problem free, with 3/4 of a horn, or just about.

1855 With Arrows Seated Liberty Half, Fine
Year: 1855
Condition: Fine-12
Description: A nice original coin from the last of the With Arrows Type. Not as common as the 1854 in my experience, as the novelty of the Arrows had worn off by the time these were issued.

1882 Morgan Dollar, PCGS MS-60, Actually Quite Scarce
Year: 1882
Condition: PCGS MS-60
Description: A coin that is actually quite a scarcity - a correctly graded MS-60 Morgan Dollar! The assigned grade is due to one significant "whack" across Liberty's cheek, which occasionally happened when bags of Dollars were tossed around while in storage from the 1920's to 1960's. Otherwise the marks & surfaces would normally warrant a 63 grade - an excellent example of an assigned "Net" grade, and a good coin for a grading set.

1910 Lincoln Cent, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1910
Condition: MS-64+ BN
Description: An original Choice Uncirculated example, with nicely mellowed color - a "Brown" coin, but with much Red remaining as highlights, especially on the Obverse.
Price: $59.00

1843 Seated Liberty Half, Original Good+
Year: 1843
Condition: Good-4+
Description: A problem free Good with a complete though not super strong rim, typical of the early Seated Halves in this grade. While only the basic collectible grade, problem free early Halves are no where near as common as the price makes them appear.
Price: $59.00

1859-O Seated Liberty Half, Solid G/VG
Year: 1859O
Condition: Good/VG
Description: A nice original average circulated example of this popular Type coin date. Full bold rims, some definition in Liberty's features and about half of the feathers in the Eagle's wings. Problem free.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #003739    See Details...
Year: 1865S
Condition: Good-4
Description: A popular date due to the Civil War connection. Most 1861-65 San Francisco Mint Seated Half Dollars are more common than their Philadelphia Mint counterparts (the New Orleans facility being closed down of course due to the war). Original with complete rims, though not super strong, but with some definition in Liberty's features and in the Eagle's wings. It is common with the San Francisco Mint dates to show a weaker rim than the central part of the coin in low grades for some reason, presumably based upon how that Mint basined its dies, which controlled metal flow when coins struck.

1935-S Mercury Dime, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1935S
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A Choice Uncirculated example of this date, with a good but average strike. Similar in fact to coin #3660, maybe a minor mark or two more. Bands split but not fully rounded.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #004254    See Details...
Year: 1861
Condition: Good
Description: Always a popular date due to its connection to the start of the Civil War. A nice Good with complete but not super bold rims, some definition within Liberty's features and on the Eagle's feathers - commercially, most dealers try to push this type of coin to a VG although why escapes me, based upon little difference in price.

1915-S Buffalo Nickel, Full Date Good+, Scarce
Year: 1915S
Condition: Good to Very Good
Description: A scarce date to locate, as much due to a rather pedestrian quality overall as the low mintage (1.5 Million). The 1915-S Nickel is in fact more difficult to find than the 1913-S Type Two, when you need one, and definitely more difficult to locate above a Fine. This is a nice full date specimen, which most dealers would call a VG.

1925-S Lincoln Cent, Original Slider
Year: 1925S
Condition: AU-58
Description: A nice original Choice AU/Unc coin, a touch sharper than #4083 which came out of the same lot. This shows the high variability of quality on all of the 1920's S Mint coinage. A very sharp, fresh Reverse die paired with an Obverse that is not quite as sharp, but far superior to most. Nice light tan brown color with almost all of the luster- I would say that this would easily certify as AU-58.

1911-D Cent, Choice EF+, First Year of Denver Mint Coinage
Year: 1911D
Condition: EF-45
Description: The first issue from the Denver Mint, this date like many of the early San Fransisco Mint coinage tends to be of indifferent quality. For some reason, many specimens have a weakly punched Mintmark, and most are poorly struck - this coin is better than most. Nice original brown surfaces with no problems as well, showing just the smallest signs of "woodgrain" streakinesss (see coin #3910).

1925-S Mercury Dime, Very Fine
Year: 1925D
Condition: VF-20
Description: A VF example of one of the toughest dates in the series to find above Fine, due to horrible striking characteristics overall. Most of the coins in all series struck this year at all Mints suffered from striking issues, which suggests a larger problem with die preparation. This coin seems reasonably original, if a bit dark, but oddly enough has a very good strike for the date.

1889 Indian Cent, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1889
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A nice Brown Uncirculated example showing lots of luster on surfaces that show some bluish toning. Some original Red remains here and there in protected areas. Out of a non-numismatic hoard, this shows a couple of brighter spots in the area of the back curl of Liberty's hair/ribbon - you can call this "rub" if you will, but in my experience this does not prohibit the coin from being considered an Unc.
Price: $58.00
Item Id #004141    See Details...
Year: 1869
Condition: VF-20
Description: A nice original Chocolate Brown VF, with a full "WE" (the "E" just a bit weaker than the "W" as typical). Heavy die break on the Reverse, developing into a "cud".
Price: $57.00

1906-S Barber Dime, Sharp EF
Year: 1906S
Condition: EF-40+
Description: A very scarce and somewhat underrated date. I will note that this coin shows a light scuff or two, and I suspect but am not entirely sure that it may have been lightly cleaned a very long time ago. This is based simply upon the color, as nothing really shows now.
Price: $57.00

1873 With Arrows Seated Liberty Half
Year: 1873
Condition: Good/Very Good
Description: A classic Type Coin, which seems a bit scarcer than the 1853-55 With Arrows type, probably as the novelty was not as considerable the second time around, so the public saved fewer. Certainly, this date seems tougher in better circulated grades. Most examples I see, similar this one, were put aside during the "Barber" years when all Seated Halves were potential hoard coins as they were "old" and obsolete. The example offered here is a decent, average circulated coin of this date.

1913-D Type 1, Original AU Coin
Year: 1913D
Condition: AU-55 to 58
Description: A very original coin showing just a bit of wear on the highest points of the Bison. A more typical strike for the date than coin #4322, nothing horrible, just not as sharp.
Price: $57.00

1906-S Barber Dime, Extremely Fine
Year: 1906S
Condition: EF-40+
Description: A nice original coin, this shows some of the eccentricities of dealing with the Barber coinage: the bottom base of Liberty's cap, right above the knot holding the base of the laurel wreath, is missing, due to overzealous polishing of the Obverse die. This factor is commonly to blame for missing smaller detail in the series, so one has to look at the overall fabric of the coin to establish grade, not focus on one small detail. Most of the major grading guides all have this same problem with over-emphasizing one particular area of a given series to "determine" grade, such as using LIBERTY on almost all coins series that bear that as part of the major relief. While making it easier to learn how to grade, it skips completely over the realities that not all coin are the same. Proof of that is that I commonly purchase coins as EF or AU from other dealers that I get certified as Uncirculated! Regardless, this is a nice original coin.

1869 Seated Liberty Half, Good+
Year: 1869
Condition: Good-6
Description: A nice problem free Good+ example. I don't see this date all that often. Mintage about 3/4 Million.

1891-O Seated Dime, Original EF, Last Year of Type
Year: 1891O
Condition: EF-40
Description: A nice original example of the last year of the Seated Liberty Dime type - oddly enough, this does not seem all that common a date, given that "last year" coins typically were heavily saved by the public. Perhaps the Depression of 1893-95 discouraged saving in the Southern states, or people in that areas where these circulated simply could not afford to put aside coins (or had no interest). This pattern similarly affects better grade Barber Dimes from New Orleans prior to about 1898, other than the "first year" 1892-O. These seem incredibly cheap as a Type overall in VF to AU.

1858 Three Cent Silver, Type 2, VF-EF
Year: 1858
Condition: VF/EF
Description: Original, which in the case of most uncleaned survivors means a bit dark. A well balanced strike for a Type 2, which commonly come very uneven. It is not unusual to have a coin with EF detail where the date is merged into the Obverse rim! Given the less than attractive surfaces, I have discounted the price a bit.

1836 Bust Dime, VG+
Year: 1836
Condition: VG-8+
Description: A nicely detailed strong VG+, close to Fine in fact. Seems very original. The Reverse is rotated to the left about 45 degrees.
