1878 Seated Liberty Half, Scarce Date
Year: 1878
Condition: Fine to Very Fine
Description: A tougher date, at the beginning of the run of low mintage Philadelphia Mint coinage, due to most production being required to mint Morgan Dollars. The Reverse is actually a strong Choice VF; the Obverse appears to have been struck from an older die and the details are a bit lacking to make VF. Relatively tough to find in any grade. Lightly cleaned a long time ago, decent color now.
Price: $119.00

1894-O Barber Dime, Very Fine, Scarce
Year: 1894O
Condition: VF-20
Description: Out of an old set and cleaned a very long time ago, as most survivors seem to be. Does not look horrible and it has developed some interesting color. Obviously not worth what a "perfect" specimen would be, but a reasonable compromise between quality and price. Discounted for the issues, to below Wholesale (after my 5% "cash" discount).

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

1987-S Barber Half, Very Good to Fine, Key Date
Year: 1897S
Condition: VG-10+
Description: A really nice Choice VG, close to Fine; certainly what you will typically get as a "Fine" from dealers who don't bother to grade accurately. Lightly cleaned long ago as most better date Barbers have been, but not horrible and it should tone back nicely over time. Certainly suitable for a decent circulated grade set, and you get almost all of the detail of a coin that would normally cost about $400.

1898-O Barber Dime, Very Fine, Scarce
Year: 1898O
Condition: VF-20+
Description: A tougher New Orleans Mint date in this grade range and above. Out of an old set and I am sure lightly cleaned a very long time ago, as most survivors seem to be. This still retains some luster around the rims and would be deemed as “normal” for circulated Barber coinage. Since I prefer however to sell close to "ideal" rather than normal or average, I have discounted this to just above Wholesale (after my 5% discount for payment by check).

1900 Barber Dime, Choice Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1900
Condition: AU-55+
Description: Out of an old set and like most Barbers collected during the early part of the 20th Century, cleaned a long time ago. This was very light and mainly shows as a slight sense of being scuffy. Most of the luster survives and still an attractive coin. Suitable to represent the Type as well as the date, as a slightly discounted price.
Price: $69.00

1903-S Morgan Dollar, Original Very Fine
Year: 1903S
Condition: VF-20
Description: A nice original example of this scarcer late San Francisco Mint date, at the grade where they start to get really tough to find - next grade up doubles in price). This just makes VF-20. Not as strong as I usually try to offer at the grade, so priced at Wholesale.
Price: $159.00

1919 Walking Liberty Half Dollar,Very Fine, Scarce
Year: 1919
Condition: Very Fine
Description: For those who prefer a non-certified example to place into an album. This is an acceptable if not totally original (in my opinion) VF specimen of this Semi-Key date. This is in the grade range where they start to get really tough to find due to typically poor strike, combined with heavy use in the booming 1920's economy. As compared to the NGC coin listed as #5868, this is how these commonly appear. Almost certainly to have been lightly cleaned at some point, this is the "look" that people traditionally prefer. The surfaces would not likely prevent certification, but I don't see the point. Discounted for the slight rim bump at 8:00 of the Obverse, which would not likely show once placed into an album page.
Price: $255.00

1941 Mercury Dime, Choice Proof, Discounted
Year: 1941
Condition: ANACS PF-63
Description: No problems, the slightly limited grade is based upon the two very minor rim marks visible in the enlarged images (coin shown prior to certification). These were correctly taken into account by ANACS in assigning a grade, but are otherwise not really obvious now that it is in a slab. NO visible hairlines or marks otherwise; a slight sense of some original surface haze.
