1830 Sm.0 -  O.117 R.2 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Ex Green-Newman, noted on the PCGS label.  This was lot 33645 in Heritage’s Nov. 2013 sale of Eric Newman’s remarkable collection. It was offered as NGC MS 61 and brought $2,291.  My notes agree with the PCGS/CAC designation, a top end AU 58.  Newman stored the coin in a brown envelope.  It took on a lovely pale mahogany and rose patina with golden highlights.  The cheek has a trace of cabinet friction.  Clearly, the coin never circulated.  Every serious bust half collector must have a “Newman” coin in his or her collection.  Here is an especially pretty one.  Est. $1,200 to $1,500.
