An old friend.  This was lot 3475 in Bowers & Merena’s Nov. 1991 Frontenac Sale.  The sale was rife with high grade bust halves.  I never learned the name of the consignor.  A peek at the catalog shows that I represented a dozen collectors, including Charlton Meyer, Gehring Prouty, George Hamilton, James Allen and Robbie Brown.  This coin cost me $242 and made its way into my fixed price list where Tim Osborne snapped it up in May 1992.  A blanket of pale gold toning encases the lustrous, exceptionally smooth surfaces.  After nearly 30 years in the bayous of Louisiana the coin is ready for a new home.  

Estimate: $800 to $1,100
