1924 Buffalo Nickel, Uncirculated, Nice Toning
Year: 1924
Condition: MS-60/61
Description: An original coin put away by a non-collector, which in this case meant less than ideal storage conditions that resulted in a few small spots. This is also a bit flatly struck on the Reverse, as the hair on the Bison's head is weak, as is "Five Cents" in the exergue at bottom. This is however a nice lustrous coin that shows some interesting, light multi-colored toning in the light yellow-green range, with reddish highlights. Priced as a "Basic Unc".

1895-O Barber Half, Very Good
Year: 1895O
Condition: VG-8+
Description: A nice original coin, completely problem free other than a very old mark or two on Liberty's face, not terribly surprising as hard as this series was used. Not what I would call a "problem" either.
Price: $70.00

1995 Lincoln Cent, Doubled Die, Superb Gem BU
Year: 1995
Condition: Gem Uncirculated
Description: 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. Likely to certify as a 66 or 67 if submitted. I offer it "raw" for those who prefer their coins this way. This is also nicer than almost all of the other 1995 Doubled Dies that I see. 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 in certified holders.

1856 Three Cent Silver, Type 2, Very Fine
Year: 1856
Condition: Very Fine
Description: This has a weak rim from 4:00 to 9:00, which seems characteristic of this particular date based upon those that I have seen. Missing just a bit of detail at center, which is just about all that it takes to separate a VF from an EF in this series), but very original.

1946 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1946
Condition: MS-64
Description: A bright BU with original, undipped surfaces. Some light marks are all that keep this out of the Gem category.

1949 Franklin Half Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Full Bell Lines
Year: 1949
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original Choice Uncirculated example of this second year issue. I have actually found that the 1949-P is harder to find in Uncirculated condition, when you need one, than the "key date" 1949-S. Full Bell Lines, which is more common on this issue as compared to the other two Mint's products in '49.

1935-S Washington Quarter, Original AU/Unc Slider
Year: 1935S
Condition: AU-58+
Description: Boy if there was such a grade as "AU-59 1/2", this coin would be the poster child. Just the smallest detectable marks & scuffs to identify that this coin spent the briefest time in circulation. Most dealers would certainly call this "Unc", and the kind of coin dipped out or processed in the traditional mail order business, unfortunately. I will guarantee that is submitted, this will certify at AU-58 (possibly even as Unc) at the service of your choice.

1939-D Quarter, Original Choice Unc
Year: 1939D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: No great rarity, but a nice original unmolested Choice Unc coin, equivalent to a certified MS-64.
Price: $69.00

1920-S Walker, Commercial VF
Year: 1920S
Condition: Fine-15+
Description: About as close to a VF as you can get, and not quite make it there. Certainly a "Commercial VF" and what most dealers try to sell as such for a pre-1927 Walker. This would certify as a Fine-15 at PCGS/NGC, as they do not use the "18" grade, however that is what it is in the eyes of most dealers who know how to grade. This date tends to almost always sell for more than the PCGS price guide in Fine-15, probably as many are cracked out and sold as a "VF". Bowing to the realities of the marketplace, this coin is priced at the level of auction results for a PCGS Fine-15; the potential buyer will have to make up their own mind as to whether the price is worth the coin.

1847 Large Cent, Repunched Date
Year: 1847
Condition: VF-35
Description: A nice original specimen of this popular repunched date. Newcomb-1, the date readily visibly repunched to the left. Very close to EF and could certify as such if submitted.
Price: $69.00

1892 Barber Dime, Original Almost Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1892
Condition: Choice Almost Uncirculated
Description: An original AU example, likely put away very shortly after entering circulation. About half of the luster remains under light pearl gray toning. A nice example for Type.
Price: $69.00

1925 Peace Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1925
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A probable MS-65 if submitted, other than the tiny nick on the bridge of Liberty's nose. Bright bold luster under light golden toning, the color typical for this date if left undipped. Common to be sure, but a very nice BU coin.
Price: $69.00

1915-D Lincoln Cent, Original AU/Unc Slider
Year: 1915D
Condition: AU-58
Description: A sharp original coin with just the barest trace of wear on Lincoln's cheekbones, jaw and above his ear, a true AU-58 "super slider". Basically, what you get as a "Select Unc" from most dealers.
Price: $69.00

1995 Lincoln Cent, Doubled Die, Gem BU
Year: 1995
Condition: PCGS 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. This is a nice problem free fully Gem BU example, certified shortly after these were discovered and without the problems that many even in slabs shows today. 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.

1916 Mercury Dime, Choice Uncirculated, Full Bands
Year: 1916
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A nice original Unc example of this first year of issue - I am calling this Full Bands, not Full Split Bands. There is a difference - the bands need to be full, split AND rounded for the grading services to add the attribution, especially on dates such as this one that are more commonly found "FSB". Regardless, a really nice coin.

1945-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1945D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original Uncirculated coin, this shows some very light streaks on the Obverse, which is likely grease rolled into the planchet strip. The 1944 & '45 Walkers were made in huge numbers due to the booming wartime economy, so quality suffered a bit. Much better struck than many of the date however.

1852 Three Cent Silver, Type 1, Original VF
Year: 1852
Condition: VF/EF
Description: A nice original circulated example, with no problems to note or damage. The usual mild weakness in some of the stars and letters around the rims.
Price: $69.00

1923-S Mercury Dime, EF/AU, Well Struck
Year: 1923S
Condition: EF/AU
Description: A sharp EF/AU example, with details matching a certified EF-45. Just a touch dark, so I will Net the value at the basic EF level.
Price: $69.00

1913 Type 1, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1913
Condition: MS-64
Description: Original, lightly toned Unc, with Choice surfaces and good luster - not a "Gem" but close and it should certainly certify as a MS-64. This type of original color, just slightly toned a golden brown, is natural to coins put aside as a souvenir of the new Nickel type, typically by non-collectors. If you would like a "brighter" copy, please see coin #4327.

1892-O Barber Dime, Certified Mid-Grade Coin
Year: 1892O
Condition: NGC VF-25
Description: A bit more unusual find in a certified holder, this is a solid circulated example in VF.
Price: $69.00

1913 Type Two Buffalo Nickel, Choice Unc
Year: 1913
Condition: MS-63/64
Description: Original gray-green example, well struck for the type. The Bison's back is very clean and free of marks - a small mark or two on the Indian's face appears to be due to planchet marks not struck out, and not from contact. Good luster, which shows more boldly on the Reverse, slightly muted by the color. A raw "Gem BU" by the standards of many. In my experience however, these will not certify above MS-63/64 usually when this "dark" - PCGS especially likes to see "blasty" luster and only light toning to reward a coin with a MS-65 (even if it has obvious marks - go figure).

1918 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Very Fine
Year: 1918
Condition: VF-20
Description: An original example, it makes the grade based upon what PCGS considers a VF-20. Not quite as much "meat" at center as I traditionally sell as a VF, but then I am a dinosaur - many of my VF would be sold for an EF by most other dealers.
Price: $69.00

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.
Price: $68.00
Item Id #004473    See Details...
1900 Liberty Nickel, Original Amost Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1900
Condition: AU-55
Description: Probably saved originally as a souvenir of the last Millennium. Very little wear and technically a"58", but it was stored in non-numismatic conditions and shows some toning and very minor surface issues. Enough that I will "net" down the grade/price as this is a common date.
Price: $68.00
