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.

1940-S Washington Quarter, Gem Uncirculated
Year: 1940S
Condition: PCGS MS-65
Description: For those who prefer a Certified example, this is an original "blast white" Gem BU coin, with no doubts as to the grade. Frankly, I had anticipated getting this back in an MS-66 holder. There are less attractive coins priced higher on the web, if you look for them.

1915 Lincoln Cent, Almost Uncirculated, Scarce
Year: 1915
Condition: AU-53 to 55
Description: A nice original AU coin, much scarcer than usual for an early Philly Mint Lincoln. One presumes that the red hot economy stoked by the First World War caused most of the coinage to get well used, as the average coin seen tends to be Fine or less. Problem free original chocolate Brown surfaces.

1936-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar, Choice Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1936D
Condition: AU-58
Description: An original AU/Unc "slider". 99% of the original luster with a good strike & color, just a hint of wear. This would fit into a BU set easily - certainly many dealers on ebay would try to call this "Unc", especially on a certain unnamed website.
Price: $58.00

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

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).

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.

1897 Barber Quarter, Extremely Fine+, Discounted
Year: 1897
Condition: EF-45
Description: Seems original with has nice color with significant luster remaining. There are a few scratches on the coin, so discounted accordingly from the typical $100 level these commonly command. Still worthy as a decent example for Type.
Price: $58.00

1915 Lincoln Cent, Extremely Fine, Tough Coin
Year: 1915
Condition: EF-40
Description: An original EF example, struck from about evenly matched dies. Seems problem free which is quite unusual for this date when found on the West Coast.
Price: $57.00

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.

1952 Roosevelt Dime, Gem Proof, Multicolored Toning
Year: 1952
Condition: Gem Proof
Description: Gem Proof with multicolored toning around the rims on both sides, from long storage in a Capital-style holder. The toning is nicer than I could really capture here, given the reflections of the Proof surfaces. As this sort of thing is not for everyone, please review my images with care (the toning could be removed through conservation). I feel the coin is very attractive and worth a premium for the toning as a positive attribute rather than a defect. Out of a full 1952 Proof Set I recently broke up, from a small group of sets that were together since the 1970's.

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.
Price: $55.00

1954-S Franklin Half Dollar, Gem BU, Near FBL
Year: 1954S
Condition: Gem BU (MS-65)
Description: This is far better than most examples of the date. Well struck with very clean original surfaces, clearly Gem BU. 90%+ Full Bell Lines - VERY close but not quite there. There are a few vague light hairlines across the base of the Bell, likely due to being "bumped" by an album slide. Considering that a certified MS-65 FBL is basically a $250 coin, this seems like a reasonable alternative.
Price: $55.00

1897 Liberty Nickel, Extremely Fine
Year: 1897
Condition: EF-45
Description: A nice original EF example, certainly not common. This has the slightly "greasy" looking grey-green color of a truly original circulated Liberty Nickel.
Price: $55.00

1920-D Mercury Dime, Choice AU
Year: 1920D
Condition: AU-53 to 55
Description: An original coin which retains most of its original luster, but shows a light overall "scuffyness". This is typical of coins that saw some actual use in normal commerce and then got saved in a misc. lot of loose coinage, rather than having been cleaned. Well struck and without die cracks, which seem common for this date normally.
Price: $55.00

1923 Peace Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1923
Condition: Choice Uncirculated (MS-63/64)
Description: A common Peace Dollar date, however the 1923 is less common than 1922. A well struck, lightly toned Choice Unc example, this has some of the "water spots" that seem to plague this issue, but they are largely hidden by the original color. Lots of luster and from a foot or more away this looks fully Gem. Likely to certify as a 64, but not worth the money to send it in.
Price: $55.00

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+, with a bold 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.
Price: $55.00

1881-S Morgan Dollar, Uncirculated
Year: 1881S
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-62)
Description: A bright original Uncirculated coin, showing a scattering of light marks, but nothing serious.
Price: $54.00
Item Id #002934    See Details...
1898-S Barber Dime, Very Fine
Year: 1898S
Condition: Very Fine
Description: The first of the so-called "Philippine" dates, as virtually the entire mintage went straight to the Archipelago to replace Colonial Spanish Silver formerly in circulation. A bit underrated as a date, certainly so as an original coin, as almost all that survived the Islands were harshly cleaned at one point.
Price: $53.00

1906 Indian Cent, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1906
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A nice glossy Uncirculated example of this common date. Technically a Brown, but with a soft overall deep Red undertone - very attractive.
Price: $53.00

1929-D Lincoln Cent, Choice Uncirculated, Well Struck
Year: 1929D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A well struck Uncirculated specimen, Red Brown primarily due to some darkness on the Reverse. Certified equivalent is MS-63RB. Certainly better made than many of this commonly mushy date, similar to the 1929-S, both produced during the initial crisis period of the Depression.
Price: $53.00
Item Id #005753    See Details...
1941-D Washington Quarter, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1941D
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: A nice original bright BU coin, and a scarcer date. Not many collectors around to put these aside in the area served by the Denver Mint, during the middle of the Second World War. The obvious scuff in the field keep this to no better than MS-63 if submitted for certification.
Price: $53.00

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, especially on the Reverse. 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.
