A charming companion to the preceding 1805 O.104a. This time the impressive cud is on the reverse. Natural antique grey toning, even wear and minimal surface marks earned this R.6- rarity a CAC sticker. Steve found the coin in Heritage’s Nov. 2017 sale. (Lot 17091 @ $2,880). A lesser quality, later die state, brought $3,840 two months later when Heritage offered the Loma Linda Collection. (Jan. 2018, lot 8249, PCGS VG 10.) Yes, collectors DO covet early bust halves with retained cuds. Estimate: $2,200 to $3,000
