1828 Curl 2, No Knob -  O.105 R.5 PCGS XF 45

Another old friend; consigned by Jim Ross.  This rarity last appeared (without encapsulation) in my 1995 Anaheim ANA Sale, MB 15, lot 258.  I graded it XF 40+.  Jim prevailed at a healthy – for the day - $1,403.  Here is the description:  A beauty!  Luster pushes through the original pearl grey toning.  The strike is as nice as these [`28-105’s] come.  There is an unobtrusive, unimportant tick on the rim between stars 11-12.  This is a new entry to the established population of fewer than 40 pieces, discovered this year by a Pennsylvania collector “not into bust halves.”  Thanks goodness!  Bids on this charming coin should reach four figures.  Est. $1,200 to $1,700.
