1832 Lg. Lets. Rev. -  O.101a R.1 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Ex Green/Newman - noted on the PCGS label.  Pristine surfaces, a whisper of cabinet friction on the cheek.  Eric Newman stored most of his bust halves in 2" x 13/4" kraft envelopes on which he typed the date, variety, cost and grade of the coin.  On this one he wrote, “Uncirculated, bril.” Later he hand wrote his cost [$6] when he bought-out his partner, B.G. Johnson.  Over time the “Brilliant Uncirculated” coin acquired a deep golden patina.  The glow of mint luster is irrepressible.  If you’ve not added a Newman coin to your collection, shame-shame.  Redemption is at hand.  The Newman envelope, Heritage lot tag [33651] and NGC AU 58 label accompany this lot.  The coin realized $1,763 in Nov. 2013.   Est. $1,200 to $1,500.
