1828 Curl 2, No Knob -  O.105 R.5 PCGS MS 62

Tied with Stew Witham’s PCGS MS 62 for finest known.  Tim quietly added it to his collection in July 1991 when Houston dealer Sonny Toupard discovered it.  This is its first appearance at auction.  Cartwheel luster spins under iridescent auburn and gold toning.  The `28-105 is a long-established rarity.  For 40 years fortune has passed me by.  I’ve never cherried an example.  The Witham coin brought $6,325 when Heritage offered it at its 2010 ANA Sale in Boston, lot 3152.  The handsome PCGS AU 58 from MB 53, lot 106 sold for $4,621 last January.   Estimate: $5,000 to $6,000
