1825 -  O.109 R.5 PCGS AU 55


Another AU R.5!  The consignor picked up this coin in MB 38, my January 2014 FUN Show Sale of selections from the Davignon Collection.  It was lot 55, bringing, $2,723.   The coin was probably stored in a Wayte Raymond album, emerging with iridescent gold, copper and aqua peripheries.  The centers are lightly toned.  The fields, though a little busy, retain good luster.  Dave Rutherford was the winning bidder when this coin appeared at Stack’s November 2008 sale, lot 3561, where it brought $2,760.  (Be sure that you are familiar with Dave’s Internet pricing tool for bust halves: http://www.busthalfprices.com.)  Dave consigned his collection to me the following year, allowing Keith Davignon to snatch this piece from my bourse table during the November 2009 Baltimore show.  A pronounced double profile will earmark this important coin for posterity.   Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
