Ex Henry Hilgard The strike is exceptional on this early die state. I note hints of prooflike surfaces under the attractive silver-grey toning. Luster befits the assigned grade. Wonderfully smooth surfaces are another bonus. The consignor acquired the coin in July 1996 directly from my long-time friend and bourse-table assistant, Henry Hilgard. Henry had a keen eye for quality. Our joint mentor, Elton Dosier, taught us to be on the lookout for coins that were well struck with original surfaces. This 1808/7 is a classic example. Estimate: $2,500 to $3,000
