The allure of iridescent album toning will excite bidders. Turquoise, russet and gold dominate. Late die state with reverse die cracks mentioned in Tompkins’ Early U.S. Half-Dollars. Luster sparkles in recesses of the devices. This is a rare die pair. No example better than XF is known. I last saw the coin in 1995 when I offered the nearly complete die variety set of Robinson S. “Robbie” Brown. The coin was in an NGC VF 35 capsule with the “Brown” provenance noted on the label. Nomura acquired the coin in 2018 and crossed it to PCGS. Brown, of course, is best known for having twice assembled a complete set of Large Cents by Sheldon varieties. He was CEO of Brown-Forman Corp. A tip of the hat and sip of Jack Daniels go to the winning bidder. Estimate: $1,500 to $2,000
