1825 -  O.102 R.2 PCGS AU 55


Ex Elton Dosier   Elton was my principal mentor when I entered the world of bust halves.  He and his Santa Cruz, CA sidekick, Henry Hilgard, astounded me with their knowledge of the series.  Elton’s widow, Dorothy Dosier, allowed me to sell Elton’s coins, including an 1817/4, after “ED” passed away in the spring of 1997.  This coin was in my case at the January 1998 FUN Show.  Tim went home with it, undoubtedly drawn to the coin’s original surfaces and natural grey toning.  Elton did not care for slabbed coins.  He liked to play with his coins.  Plastic got in the way.  I’m nearly certain the coin was “raw” when Tim spotted it.   Estimate: $450 to $550
