Year: 1843
Condition: Good-4+
Description: The other end of the circulated grading scale - a problem free Good with a complete though not super strong rim, typical of the early Seated Halves in this grade. It is also an basic collectible grade, and still commands a price of nearly $60. From that perspective, the PCGS EF-40 I am also offering (#3578), seems STUPID CHEAP, as I can assure you that there are very few EF coins surviving, compared to VG and below.

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.

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.

1835 Capped Bust Half Dime
Year: 1835
Condition: Good to Very Good
Description: A nice lower grade example. A few tiny marks, but acceptable for the grade.

1915-S Barber Dime, Very Fine
Year: 1915S
Condition: VF-20
Description: An original VF, with just a touch more detail than coin #3144, a 1915-S in Fine. That is all it takes to distinguish between grades on these small coin, which is why many dealers get away with "stretching" between grades to make more money. This date that becomes difficult to locate in Fine and better - likely due to relatively low mintage combined with an absence of hoarding in the booming First World War economy.

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.

1918-S Buffalo, Fine, 2/3 Horn
Year: 1918S
Condition: Fine-12+
Description: A solid Fine+ with 2/3 horn and a strong date for a '18-S, which commonly comes with the first "19" mushy and indistinct. It does show the typical weaker central detail usually found on this date in the area of the hair braid, and the corresponding area on the Reverse from the Bison's shoulder down the left leg. This seems to be due to the die spacing used as much as overused dies, and is the norm rather than the exception at San Francisco during this period.

Year: 1911S
Condition: Fine
Description: QUANTITIES LIMITED AND MAY BE OUT OF STOCK - PLEASE INQUIRE. Out of my regular stock, I offer nice original examples of this tougher early S Mint date in Fine. All coins will have full wheat ear lines and some definition in Lincoln's face. Images upon request, IF AVAILABLE.

1906-S Barber Dime, Sharp EF
Year: 1906S
Condition: EF-40+
Description: As opposed to coin #3116, another 1906-S Dime in "Commercial EF" (now sold), this is the real deal. A very scarce and somewhat underrated date. I will note that this coin shoes a light scuff or two, and I suspect but am not sure that it may have been lightly cleaned a very long time ago. This is based simply upon the color.

1895-S Barber Dime, Good
Year: 1895S
Condition: Good-4
Description: This listing is for an average Good of this date from our stock. As such, the image shown is an example of the quality of coin sent, but may not represent the actual coin you will receive (however, it will be equivalent). These coins will have a full rim on both sides, but as usual with the Barbers the Reverse rim is likely to be a bit weaker than the Obverse. If the price shows as Price On Request, that means that this date is not in current stock - please inquire.

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.

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".

1901 Indian Cent, Choice Uncirculated, Brown
Year: 1901
Condition: MS-63 Brown
Description: Warm, original Brown surfaces with obvious full luster. Some hints of Red remaining on the Reverse. An obvious mark on Liberty's cheek keeps this from a higher grade, but a very nice coin nonetheless.
Price: $55.00

1903-O Barber Quarter, Fine+
Year: 1903O
Condition: Choice Fine
Description: Close to VF, with the middle feather of the eagle's right wing being basically complete, and still showing some traces of luster. However, as this is a reasonably common date for an O Mint Barber Quarter, I preferred not to push the grade (this was purchased from a someone who had graded it VF). The surfaces are original but look just a trace porous (?); one mark is also noted between the first two stars left of the date.

1894-S Barber Quarter, VF, Discounted
Year: 1894S
Condition: VF-20
Description: This makes Very Fine, but is not quite as strong as I typically like to sell, and has some minor problems. Still a "meaty" coin, and should attract someone's attention at the listed price.
Price: $55.00

1919-S Buffalo, Fine, 2/3 Horn
Year: 1919S
Condition: Fine-12+
Description: A solid Fine+ with 2/3 horn and a strong date for a '19-S, which commonly comes with the first "19" mushy and indistinct. This is equivalent to a PCGS or NGC certified Fine-15, based upon observed current grading standards, and I would guarantee certification at that grade (not worth spending the money however).

1938-D Buffalo Nickel, Gem BU
Year: 1938D
Condition: ANACS MS-65
Description: The last Buffalo Nickel date struck, in an old ANACS "mini slab" with a very low serial number. Certified back when they were very conservative, this could easily upgrade to a MS-66 today, however the increase in value is not worth the expense, considering how common this date is in Unc. Better to leave it in the current holder for what it is - a BRIGHT, flashy Gem BU example for Type.

1927-D Buffalo Nickel, Very Fine+, Full Horn
Year: 1927D
Condition: VF-25 to 30
Description: A difficult coin to find correctly graded in VF (i. e. with a full horn), and definitely underrated and underpriced.. This coin is more like an EF coin for actual wear, with the typical mid-20's Denver Mint strike, in other words not so hot. It still shows some traces of luster, but the overall detail is that of VF+, so that is how I have priced it. I suspect very lightly cleaned a very long time ago, noticeable now only if mentioned.

1898-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1898O
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: A nice original Uncirculated coin, from a local group saved during the bank releases in the 1960's. No huge or ugly marks (the worst being a "mash" spot on the trunk of Liberty's neck), bright and all white. Common, but a nice fresh example if you want just one truly Unc Morgan Dollar. The certified equivalent would likely be MS-63.
Price: $55.00
Item Id #002245    See Details...
Year: 1901O
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-62/63)
Description: A bright original Uncirculated coin, from a local group of BU Dollars put away during the 1960's. Most dealers would certainly offer this coin as "Choice BU" (MS-63+), but as it is common and I have a number in stock, I will simply call it "Unc". This particular coin does not noticeably differ in its appearance from coin #2250 (a few more small marks), as they came from the same BU roll.

1879-O Morgan Dollar, Original Choice AU
Year: 1879O
Condition: Choice Almost Uncirculated
Description: As noted in my comments in the listing for coin #3132, the 1879-O Dollar is commonly perceived as being a common date in AU and Unc. However, this is based upon the large number of questionable "Unc" specimens which are really AU's. Many AU-53 to AU-58 coins (by today's grading standard) emerged from Treasury bags in the 1960's and were sold into the market as "Unc" in the 1970's, as anything bright and shiny that showed luster seemed to be sold as "Gem BU"!! The result is that most NICE AU's seem to have been cleaned to try to make an "Unc" out of them - I know because I always keep an eye out for this date. I guess I have to ask, if this is such a "common" date in Unc, then why try to manufacture coins in that grade by abusing AU's? Perhaps the answer speaks for itself. The specimen offered here is unusual in that it is an original, un-monkyed with AU+, the equivalent of a certified AU-53 or 55.

1923-S Peace Dollar, Uncirculated
Year: 1923S
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: A typical 1923-S Peace Dollar, in that the strike is not great - these seem to almost always be at least a bit flat across the high points of Liberty's hair and the eagle top wing area. It also shows some die polish lines on the Reverse, signs of a heavily used die (not objectionable however). Original with some light toning from decades of bag storage, the typical light scuffiness all over from being shifted back and forth between storage locations, which is why really Choice examples are scarce and expensive (a true Gem will fetch about $6000).
Price: $55.00

1922 Peace Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1922
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: First year issue of the Peace Dollar from Philadelphia. About as common as a Peace Dollar gets, but a nice Choice BU example without the problematic "water spots" that seem to plague this issue - these were apparently caused by the methods used to wash the planchets to remove grease before striking, and are present on all the 1922-25 dates to some degree. A certified equivalent would be MS-63 or 64; oddly enough, NICE Choice BU and better "common" Peace Dollars are NOT as easily found as common date Morgan Dollars are, mainly due to production issues such as the mentioned spotting. Peace Dollars are just less popular, probably as they are perceived as being "modern" as they all date to the 20th Century.
