1808 - O.108 R.3 PCGS AU 55 CAC
Ex Roger Solomon. The pleasing surfaces shimmer with luster. The devices are outlined with russet toning, an unusual but wholly original – and charming – artifact of storage in a healthy, protective environment. The central devices are sharply impressed. I offered the Solomon Collection of bust coinage at the Aug. 2011 ANA Convention. Those in attendance will attest to both the excitement surrounding the sale and the quality of Roger’s coins, half-dimes through dollars. Capped Bust half-dollars were Roger’s favorite. Here is marvelous example. Est. $2,750 to $3,500.
