Booming luster and sharply impressed devices are what we expect of our “58s.” No disappointment here. Notice, especially, the detail in Liberty’s curls and the folds in her cap. Thin rings of iridescence encase the dentils and nearby peripheries. A couple of contact marks on the obverse are noted. The surfaces are otherwise smooth and free of hairlines. This was lot 3 in my June 2006 of Charles De Olden’s capped bust half-dollars (MB 32). It took $2,475 to bring it home 13+ years ago. PCGS suggests $3,750 today. Est. $3,000 to $4,000.
