1833 -  O.105 R.2 PCGS MS 62 CAC

From the collection of Keith Davignon.  This one is ripe for upgrade.  In Keith’s words, “…an absolutely beautiful coin with super original surfaces.”   He corralled it in Oct. 1994 when I was selling Robbie Brown’s collection.  The Brown provenance is noted on the PCGS label.  The coin is nothing like a 62.   At preview, your first question will be “Is it a 63 or 64?”  The antique toning is scrumptious.  I expect runaway bidding.  Robinson S. Brown, Jr., the numismatist, is best known for twice completing a Sheldon die-variety set of large cents.  In the business world he was Chairman of the Board for Brown-Forman Corp., a Kentucky distillery with such familiar brands as Old Forester, Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels and Old Bushmills.  Robbie had a cherubic countenance and personality.  He passed away in 2005 at age 88.  Est. $2,000 and up.
