1828 Sq, 2, Sm. 8's, Lg Let. O.116 R.2 PCGS MS 63+ CAC
PCGS agreed with the + sign that NGC awarded this imposing coin in Heritage’s November 2013 offering of the Eric Newman Collection. This was lot 33619. Keith Davignon corralled it at $4,563. Both the PCGS and accompanying NGC labels note the Colonel Green/Newman provenance. Heritage retained my services to write descriptions of the Newman bust half-dollars. For this coin I noted the impressive strike, strong luster and original “dusky gray and golden-brown toning.” Newman stored most of his coins in kraft envelopes. Some emerged with a patina that was too dark for the taste of many collectors. This one is a nice exception. Davignon’s personal notes include, “Nice grey-dirt look, not too dark.” CAC agreed. So will you. This is a special coin from a special collection.Estimate: $3,500 to $4,000
