Another AU R.5! The consignor picked up this coin in MB 38, my January 2014 FUN Show Sale of selections from the Davignon Collection. It was lot 55, bringing, $2,723. The coin was probably stored in a Wayte Raymond album, emerging with iridescent gold, copper and aqua peripheries. The centers are lightly toned. The fields, though a little busy, retain good luster. Dave Rutherford was the winning bidder when this coin appeared at Stack’s November 2008 sale, lot 3561, where it brought $2,760. (Be sure that you are familiar with Dave’s Internet pricing tool for bust halves: http://www.busthalfprices.com.) Dave consigned his collection to me the following year, allowing Keith Davignon to snatch this piece from my bourse table during the November 2009 Baltimore show. A pronounced double profile will earmark this important coin for posterity.Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
