1905-S Barber Dime, Original EF+
Year: 1905S
Condition: EF-45
Description: A nice sharp original coin, close to AU. The Reverse on its own seems to make that grade.
Price: $65.00

1939-D Jefferson Nickel, Reverse of 1938, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1939D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: Well struck and with Gem Uncirculated surfaces as far as marks go. This shows some light "freckling" of light scattered spots of toning due to how it was stored, so offered at Wholesale for a sixty-three grade, which this is certainly better than. For those who just wish to place a nice BU coin in an album and are not concerned about "plastic".

1942 Walker, Choice BU
Year: 1942
Condition: Choice Uncirculated (MS63/64)
Description: Bright white and problem free - please note the slightly "yellow" cast of the Reverse image is due to lighting, the coin itself is natural and untoned.
Price: $63.00

1879 Indian Cent, Sharp EF/AU
Year: 1879
Condition: EF-45
Description: A solid EF+ with a well balanced strike showing almost full feather details to the tips, and a sharp LIBERTY. The color is perhaps not "perfect" but the coin is original. Priced just above Wholesale - not really an easy coin to find.
Price: $63.00

1885 Indian Cent, EF/AU
Year: 1885
Condition: EF-45

Price: $63.00

1957 Franklin Half, Superb Gem Proof, Old PCGS Holder
Year: 1957
Condition: PCGS PR-66
Description: A true Gem example in an old second generation PCGS PR-66 holder, the "wraparound" added to Rattlers to help seal the edge. Probably today's 67, with superb mirrors and some hints of Cameo. Looks much nicer in the hand than shown here, due to the difficulty of getting a good image of the reflective Proof surfaces with "backwash". Better yet, the holder is fresh, with no marks, scuffs or chatter - one wonders where it has been hiding for the last 25 years! Regarding price, please note that you are buying the holder as much as the coin, as this is a true piece of numismatic history (as well as a nice coin).

1916-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Very Good to Fine
Year: 1916D
Condition: VG-10+
Description: A very original example, very close to a Fine, which is what most "commercial" dealers would call a coin that looks like this.
Price: $63.00

1995 Lincoln Cent, Doubled Die, Gem BU
Year: 1995
Condition: ICG MS-66
Description: FS-01-1995-101. A nice bright Gem BU example of this, the last "real" Doubled Die produced in the traditional way, by multiple impressions during hubbing of the dies, and which caused a minor gold rush in 1995 when these were discovered. Although housed in a ICG slab, this is easily the equal of PCGS or NGC certified examples in the same grade indicated - I actually think this nicer than the PCGS MS-66 offered as #5538. I also believe that it would cross over, however due to the perhaps unreasonable minor paranoia over non-"big name" slabs, I am offering this just a bit cheaper. Interesting also that there is a small die chip present on one of the digits of the date. This is also nicer than almost all of the other 1995 Doubled Dies that I see, certainly the raw ones. As these were typically pulled from rolls, boxes and bags by "treasure hunters" who did not bother to take too much care in handling the coins, the huge majority have now developed fingerprints or spots - including many now in certified holders.

1926-S Mercury Dime, Very Fine, Scarce
Year: 1926S
Condition: VF-25 to 30
Description: A sharp VF+ example of this Semi-Key Date, ridiculously undervalued at current levels. This coin is not perfect as it shows evidence of an very old, light cleaning (as 95% of circulated specimens do), and a light mark on the Reverse. Some remaining signs of luster and without the cleaning might have a shot at certify EF.

1943 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1943
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original frosty white Choice BU coin.
Price: $63.00

1952-S Franklin Half Dollar, Original AU/Unc
Year: 1952S
Condition: AU-58
Description: A true original "Slider" that spent maybe a week or two in circulation. Mild scuffing and light wear on the high points, mainly noticeable as a small flat spot on Franklin's jaw, but otherwise fully lustrous. Basically, what you get as a bargain priced "Unc" from many mail order dealers.
Price: $61.00

1945-D Walker, Choice BU, Bright White
Year: 1945D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original Uncirculated coin with bright luster, the sort of typical slightly mushy late '40's Denver Mint strike. Untoned other than a tiny spot at center where the mylar window of the old holder had torn open (as shown in my images here); I have replaced the 2x2 this is in so it is secure. This would likely certify as an MS-64, however not worth the cost to submit it.

1941-S Washington Quarter, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1941S
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A true Uncirculated example, very typical of coins that come out of old time sets originally housed in Whitman or similar folders. No wear from circulation, this shows some wispy hairlines from light handling or contact with paper in the folder. The Reverse shows no hairlines, just a touch or original toning. To the naked eye, this looks "Gem BU", and should fit nicely into a raw BU Quarter set.
Price: $59.00

1925-D Mercury Dime, Original VF Coin
Year: 1925D
Condition: VF-20+
Description: A nice solid VF+ example of this better date. Typical slightly mismatched strike, with a stronger Reverse than Obverse. This dissimilarity is common during the 1920's at the two Branch Mints, as they switched dies in and out of service individually, rather than as a pair. Original and problem free.
Price: $59.00

1894 Indian Cent, Choice EF/AU
Year: 1894
Condition: EF-45
Description: A touch sharper than the coin listed as #4491. Close to AU and might certify as such on a good day.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #004995    See Details...
1924 Peace Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1924
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A coin with very clean fields, at first glance this looks like an obvious Gem. A few light hairlines on Liberty's cheek from an old album slide (enlarged image shown), and a small reed mark or two keep this out of that category, but still a solid Choice BU coin. Typical 1924 strike on the Obverse, showing some die wear and granularity, however the Reverse is very sharp for this date.
Price: $59.00

1915 Lincoln Cent, Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1915
Condition: AU-50
Description: A very tough grade for this early Philly Mint date. Well struck for the date, this still shows the rugosity in the fields characteristic of Brenner's original design (the slightly pebbled or textured look). Struck on a planchet showing the "woodgrain" color of many early Lincolns, this was also stored in such a way that the surfaces dried out a bit so I applied some Coin Care to help them out. As such, the "shine" you are seeing in not luster but the applied Care; the coin does show some small amount of original luster here and there as well. The Coin care will NOT hurt the coin and can easily be removed with a coin-safe solvent should the new owner choose. Perhaps not a "perfect" Choice AU, but then it would cost significantly more; most price "guides" are ridiculously too low on values for this coin.

1925-S Lincoln Cent, Choice Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1925S
Condition: AU-55
Description: A bit sharper Obverse than coin #4083, but less so on the Reverse - typical mis-matched 1925-S die pair. Otherwise original and very nice, and would almost certainly also certify as a 58.
Price: $59.00

1901 Barber Quarter, About Very Fine
Year: 1901
Condition: Choice Fine/Very Fine
Description: Exceedingly close to Very Fine, this lacks just a bit of detail as it was struck from the Type Two Obverse master hub (or Type Three depending upon how you see it) introduced in 1900. Coins struck from this hub have weaker detail, especially in Liberty's head from the laurel wreath leaves down to her eye/nose. While in my opinion just short of what I like to see in a full VF, this still might certify as such. Otherwise, a solid example. This date is priced ludicrously, with a Good being worth 75% of the value of a Fine; I can assure you that the Good versus Fine population for this date does not run 3 to 1, but more like 300 to 1 or fewer. So either the Goods (and VG's) are overpriced, or Fine & VF are underpriced - I think the latter.

1889 Liberty Nickel, Original VF+
Year: 1889
Condition: VF-30
Description: A nice VF to EF, certainly a Commercial EF. It still shows some luster around the rims and strong hair detail. A few light marks from circulation are not too distracting, and seem appropriate to the level of circulation.
Price: $58.00

1875 Indian Cent, Very Fine
Year: 1875
Condition: VF-20
Description: A nice solid Very Fine, with original Brown surfaces - a few small picky marks so discounted just a bit for the very minor issues. Oddly enough, for a date with a mintage that was not particularly low, this seems difficult to find above Very Good most of the time.
Price: $58.00

1936-D Mercury Dime, Choice Uncirculated, Nice Color
Year: 1936D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A near Gem BU example with attractive original color.
Price: $58.00

1886 Indian Cent, Type One, Original Very Fine
Year: 1886
Condition: VF-20
Description: A nice mid-grade circulated example of this better date. Likely to certify as a VF-30, given the current commercial standard, but I will simply call it VF.
Price: $58.00
Item Id #004942    See Details...
1902 Morgan Dollar, Choice Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1902
Condition: AU-58
Description: A nice example of this better P Mint date - not as common in nice condition as it's low price current price indicates.
Price: $58.00

1955 Franklin Half Dollar, Famous
Year: 1955
Condition: ICG MS-64
Description: A nice original example of this popular variety, also sometimes comically known as "Count Frankula". Clash marks caused a set of pointed "teeth" appearing to jut out of Franklin's upper lip. The variety is noted on the holder, which you don't see as often. Also very close to Full Bell Lines, about 90+%. Not really rare, but this has always been popular as it is an "eye visible" variety with a good story to go along with it.
