1833 -  O.114 R.2 PCGS MS 62


From the collection of Keith Davignon.  Rich antique grey toning with immaculate surfaces.  A touch of cabinet friction on the cheek?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  Immaterial.  I first encountered the coin in Nov. 1988 when it appeared as lot 3104 in B&M’s sale of the Norweb Collection.  It appeared two years later as lot 1752 in B&M’s Chris Schenkel Sale.  Then, in Aug. 1997, it was consigned to my MB 20 (lot 155).  Russ Logan prevailed.  At the B&M Sale of Logan’s collection Michael E. Summers, distinguished planetary scientist, numismatic colleague and my bust-half mentor, was the winning bidder.  Mike later passed the coin to his friend David Kahn and Kahn sold it to Davignon during the 2010 Boston ANA Convention.  Whew!  Quite a provenance.  Your turn.  You can’t go wrong.  Est. $1,500 to $2,000.
