1927 Peace Dollar, Original AU/Unc Slider
Year: 1927
Condition: AU-58
Description: A much tougher P Mint date in better grades. This is a nice "Slider"), showing a few light marks as Peace Dollars usually do, but virtually no wear and almost full luster. The kind of coin commonly dipped out and sold as "Select BU" for twice the money. This would certainly fit nicely into a high grade AU or even average Unc set of this series.

1917-D Cent, Choice Almost Uncirculated, Well Struck
Year: 1917D
Condition: Choice AU-55+
Description: Original and well struck from a fresh die pair, definitely NOT common for this date. Just a bit of wear on Lincoln's cheekbone & jaw. The luster is a bit muted by the chocolate brown color, so I calling this a 55 rather than 58.

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.

1880-S Morgan Dollar, Original Choice Unc
Year: 1880S
Condition: PCGS MS-63
Description: Nice Choice BU example of this common S Mint date. Very clean for the assigned grade - the Reverse is nearly completely mark free to the eye. All white except just a trace of toning along the Reverse rim area. Undoubtedly an original BU roll coin. Images upon request.

1885 Indian Cent, EF
Year: 1885
Condition: EF-40+
Description: A solid EF coin with nice Brown surfaces. There are some small traces of original Red remaining, but not nice enough to make AU.

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.

1951 Roosevelt Dime, Gem Proof
Year: 1951
Condition: Gem Proof
Description: Typical of the 1950-51 Proof Sets, this has a more "chrome" or satiny looking finish, rather than the traditional mirrored finish. This was due to the Mint forced having to relearn how to strike Proofs. Some splashes of light toning from long storage in a Capital-style holder. These are hard to see and mentioned simply to be accurate. As this sort of thing is not for everyone, please review my images with care (the toning could be removed through conservation). Out of a full 1951 Proof Set I recently broke up, from a small group of sets that were together since the 1970's.

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.

1870 Indian Cent, Nice Solid Good
Year: 1870
Condition: Good-4
Description: The 1870 is a tougher date in the series, as are all of the 1869 to 1872 dates, even in Good.

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

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

1951 Jefferson Nickel, Gem Proof
Year: 1951
Condition: Gem Proof (65+)
Description: A nice original Proof coin with clean surfaces, showing some light Cameo effect which is noticeable due to a hint of bluish toning. Please Note: the "fingerprint" that shows in the Reverse image is on the outside of the plastic, not on the coin.
Price: $59.00

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

1909 VDB Lincoln Cent, Choice/Gem BU, Original Roll Coin
Year: 1909VDB
Condition: Ch/Gem BU
Description: This is an original Choice Uncirculated coin, out of a stash of rolls of this date put away by my now retired business partner, many years ago - I am offering a number of similar coins that also came from this same source. Most of the coins in these rolls showed at least some toning, this coin just enough to not make a full Red. It shows mellow traces of reddish-yellow over the original "straw gold" color. There is also some light "flecks" indicating finger contact at some point - remember, no 2x2's, Airtites or coin tubes back then - coins were handled by hand when rolled from original Mint bags, or when a merchant went to the bank to get some coin. Still, a bright obvious BU coin.

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
