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.
Price: $60.00

1927 Mercury Dime, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1927
Condition: MS-63 to 64

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, no on the coin.

1866 Shield Nickel, First Year of Type
Year: 1866
Condition: Fine-12

1878, 7 Tailfeather Morgan Dollar, Reverse of 1878
Year: 1878
Condition: AU-55
Description: An original example, just slightly scuffy but never cleaned or abused unlike many first year coins saved as souvenirs of the new Dollar design. The Obverse shows just a bit of light toning, the Reverse off-white with strong luster. Not attributed to VAM number for those who like a challenge.
Price: $59.00

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.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #003017    See Details...
Year: 1946D
Condition: MS-63
Description: Original, with a "frosty" rather than "flashy" surface, due to some very minor granularity caused I presume by slightly overused dies. This does have a scattering of marks that keep it out of any grade better than a MS-63, but is strictly BU.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #003233    See Details...
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.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #003736    See Details...
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

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.
Price: $59.00
Item Id #003741    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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.
Price: $57.00

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.
Price: $57.00
Item Id #003479    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

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

1860-O Seated Liberty Half, Type One Rev., No Drapery
Year: 1860O
Condition: Good+
Description: Struck from then old Type One Reverse hub in use since 1842, with long claws on the eagle. About one third of the mintage this year is this hub. Called "rare" in Breen (Breen-4897), but more recent research by Wiley & Bugert shows that this is basically common. Interesting however as a transitional type. This is also a "no drapery" type, due to an excessive clash which transferred the vertical stripe details of the Shield on the Rev. to the area under Liberty's elbow. The efforts to re-polish the Obverse die to remove this "extra detail" succeed in removing the drapery normally found there, but the stripes can still be seen. As such not described in Breen.

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
Item Id #002257    See Details...
Year: 1927S
Condition: Good and Better
Description: Put away during the 1940's or earlier, when it was still possible to find roll quantities of slightly better dates over time where the coins were not too heavily worn or damaged. This is a mixed grade roll with all coins at least a full Good. The vast majority are VG to Fine, with some close to VF. The coins in this roll are also generally well struck, better than commonly seen in the mid-1920's San Francisco Mint dates. It is common to find coins from this period with the mis-matched sides, the two sides differing by up to two grades. With enough wear, this meant a lot of coins had AG Reverses, even when the Obverse was still a VG. The coins in this roll are significantly better than that. A more unusual date to find by the roll. There are some $4-5 coins in this roll, but on average a few more have minor problems than most of my rolls, so I have adjusted the price - it should leave a little room for someone who might want to purchase this to re-sell.

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.
