1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.116 R.4 PCGS AU 58 CAC

A fantastic coin.  Original to its core.  My favorite coin in the Osborne consignment.  The O.116 was a mid-level R.5 for many years.  Quality examples such as this are supremely rare.  The immaculate surfaces and antique toning are to die for.  The coin lay in a New England Museum for decades, surfacing in Stack’s/Bowers’ May 2013 New Orleans National Money Show sale (lot 337) along with a few other stunning bust half-dollars.  Tim found the coin irresistible and was happy to land it at $5,140!  If you are coming to FUN don’t fail to preview this coin.   Estimate: $3,500 and up
