Ex Richard Pugh . Richard Pugh often held court at my Long Beach bourse table in the 1980s. He was only 46 when we lost him to brain cancer. His remarkable collection of high grade and rare bust halves went to auction at Superior Galleries in May 1992. This exquisite 1810 was lot 942 in that sale. I prevailed on behalf James Allen, a noted Pennsylvania collector of the day. Roger Solomon was also in the hunt but fell short. Beautiful iridescent toning tells us the coin was stored in a kraft envelope, perhaps also spending time in a Wayte Raymond holder. The streak in Liberty’s upper curls is a drift mark, hardly visible to the naked eye. Preview is a must! Estimate: $3,500 to $4,000
