1829 -  O.115 R.1 MS 62 CAC

Ex Gehring Prouty.  Last offered, “raw,” in MB 28, June 2003.  Out of fright, I graded the coin choice AU (because of slightly darker toning on the cheek).  Then offered this description: This is a very choice AU, tracing its pedigree to the Prouty Collection.  The reverse is Unc, the obverse with a trace of friction.  Antique grey toning with subtle gold highlights yields an “A” for eye appeal.  The rims are outrageously high, and the strike is razor sharp.  All 13 stars show center points.  Liberty’s curls match the eagle’s talons and wing feathers for intricate detail.  S-T-R-E-T-C-H for this one!  The current consignor prevailed at a modest $756.  Now PCGS graded and CAC approved, this connoisseur’s coin should bring twice that.  Prouty’s personalized tag accompanies the lot, noting his purchase on March 15, 1991.  Est. $1,200 to $1,600.
