1812/1 Sm. 8 -  O.102 R.2 PCGS AU 55 CAC

Ex Steve Nomura and Dan Holmes.  Bold luster and peripheral toning hallmark this alluring example of a popular overdate.  Steve Nomura, long known for his keen eye, consigned the coin to me some years back.  The late Dan Holmes, famed collector of large cents, saw the coin and decided to assemble a Red Book set of bust halves.  His illness [ALS] arose shortly thereafter.  Dan brought me his modest collection.  This coin found its most recent home during the January 2009 FUN Show.  It is as pretty as I remember it.  Est. $2,000 to $2,500.
