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".

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.

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.

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.

1869 Seated Liberty Half, Good+
Year: 1869
Condition: Good-6
Description: A nice problem free Good+ example. I don't see this date all that often. Mintage about 3/4 Million.
Price: $57.00
Item Id #004091    See Details...
Year: 1858SL
Condition: Fine
Description: The first American Small Cent and a classic, popular Type coin. This listing is for a coin out of our regular inventory, so as such the image shown here if any may not represent the actual coin you receive - it should be equivalent to that shown for coin #2855, an 1857 Cent in Fine.

1854 Seated Liberty Quarter, With Arrows, EF
Year: 1854
Condition: EF-40
Description: A decent EF example of the Arrows type with the Rays removed. While the Mint Director felt that these were were needed to distinguish the older, heavier pre-1853 types quickly when being sorted by banks (most of these coins were then melted to recover the Silver value, a minor numismatic crime and the reason that they are hard to find today), for an unknown reason they were left off of the master hub. These had caused problems with striking quality in 1853, so perhaps the last minute decision was made based upon this reason. This seems original, although like many coins but away by non-collectors it shows some obvious Reverse damage. A good looking coin otherwise, and discounted a bit for the problem.

1891-O Seated Dime, Original EF, Last Year of Type
Year: 1891O
Condition: EF-40
Description: A nice original example of the last year of the Seated Liberty Dime type - oddly enough, this does not seem all that common a date, given that "last year" coins typically were heavily saved by the public. Perhaps the Depression of 1893-95 discouraged saving in the Southern states, or people in that areas where these circulated simply could not afford to put aside coins (or had no interest). This pattern similarly affects better grade Barber Dimes from New Orleans prior to about 1898, other than the "first year" 1892-O. These seem incredibly cheap as a Type overall in VF to AU.

1858 Three Cent Silver, Type 2, VF-EF
Year: 1858
Condition: VF/EF
Description: Original, which in the case of most uncleaned survivors means a bit dark. A well balanced strike for a Type 2, which commonly come very uneven. It is not unusual to have a coin with EF detail where the date is merged into the Obverse rim! Given the less than attractive surfaces, I have discounted the price a bit.

1919-S Buffalo, Fine, 2/3 Horn
Year: 1919S
Condition: Fine-12+
Description: A solid Fine+ with 2/3 horn and a strong date for a '19-S, which commonly comes with the first "19" mushy and indistinct. This is equivalent to a PCGS or NGC certified Fine-15, based upon observed current grading standards, and I would guarantee certification at that grade (not worth spending the money however).

1836 Bust Dime, VG+
Year: 1836
Condition: VG-8+
Description: A nicely detailed strong VG+, close to Fine in fact. Seems very original. The Reverse is rotated to the left about 45 degrees.
Price: $55.00

1934-D Cent, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1934D
Description: A nice 99% bright Red specimen of this better date. The original color has JUST begun to fade on the right side of the Obverse. Not easy to find as most Unc specimens I encounter are Brown or unevenly colored. About the average strike and surfaces.
Price: $55.00
Item Id #003953    See Details...
Year: 1901O
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-62/63)
Description: A bright original Uncirculated coin, from a local group of BU Dollars put away during the 1960's. Most dealers would certainly offer this coin as "Choice BU" (MS-63+), but as it is common and I have a number in stock, I will simply call it "Unc". This particular coin does not noticeably differ in its appearance from coin #2250 (a few more small marks), as they came from the same BU roll.

1903-O Barber Quarter, Fine+
Year: 1903O
Condition: Choice Fine
Description: Close to VF, with the middle feather of the eagle's right wing being basically complete, and still showing some traces of luster. However, as this is a reasonably common date for an O Mint Barber Quarter, I preferred not to push the grade (this was purchased from a someone who had graded it VF). The surfaces are original but look just a trace porous (?); one mark is also noted between the first two stars left of the date.

1938-D Buffalo Nickel, Gem BU
Year: 1938D
Condition: ANACS MS-65
Description: The last Buffalo Nickel date struck, in an old ANACS "mini slab" with a very low serial number. Certified back when they were very conservative, this could easily upgrade to a MS-66 today, however the increase in value is not worth the expense, considering how common this date is in Unc. Better to leave it in the current holder for what it is - a BRIGHT, flashy Gem BU example for Type.

1894-S Barber Quarter, VF, Discounted
Year: 1894S
Condition: VF-20
Description: This makes Very Fine, but is not quite as strong as I typically like to sell, and has some minor problems. Still a "meaty" coin, and should attract someone's attention at the listed price.
Price: $55.00

1898-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1898O
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: A nice original Uncirculated coin, from a local group saved during the bank releases in the 1960's. No huge or ugly marks (the worst being a "mash" spot on the trunk of Liberty's neck), bright and all white. Common, but a nice fresh example if you want just one truly Unc Morgan Dollar. The certified equivalent would likely be MS-63.
Price: $55.00

1922 Peace Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1922
Condition: MS-63
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 significant 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. 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, and heavy marks from frequent transporting of bags between storage locations. Peace Dollars are just less popular, probably as they are perceived as being "modern" as they all date to the 20th Century.

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

1879-O Morgan Dollar, Original Choice AU
Year: 1879O
Condition: Choice Almost Uncirculated
Description: As noted in my comments in the listing for coin #3132, the 1879-O Dollar is commonly perceived as being a common date in AU and Unc. However, this is based upon the large number of questionable "Unc" specimens which are really AU's. Many AU-53 to AU-58 coins (by today's grading standard) emerged from Treasury bags in the 1960's and were sold into the market as "Unc" in the 1970's, as anything bright and shiny that showed luster seemed to be sold as "Gem BU"!! The result is that most NICE AU's seem to have been cleaned to try to make an "Unc" out of them - I know because I always keep an eye out for this date. I guess I have to ask, if this is such a "common" date in Unc, then why try to manufacture coins in that grade by abusing AU's? Perhaps the answer speaks for itself. The specimen offered here is unusual in that it is an original, un-monkyed with AU+, the equivalent of a certified AU-53 or 55.

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

1938-D Jefferson Nickel, Superb Gem BU
Year: 1938D
Condition: PCGS MS-66
Description: As typical for PCGS's grading of early Jefferson Nickels, a stunning coin that appears near perfect (certainly better than a 66) from any farther than 12" away. The Reverse die does show some light die erosion so no Full Steps, but otherwise very clean with just a touch of light toning. Certainly a PQ example.
Price: $55.00

1918 Lincoln Cent, Choice Red Brown Unc
Year: 1918
Condition: MS-63 RB
Description: A decent BU specimen, a faded Red with some darkening in a "speckled" pattern (the coin is a bit brighter than it appears here). No major marks, just a few light scuffs - coins like this almost always survived in a mixed, loose lot of coins, hence picked up a few scuffy marks, rather than more traditional "reed marks". The strike is decent for this large mintage date.
Price: $55.00
