1824 -  O.104 R.3 PCGS XF 45 CAC

Ex Charlton E. Meyer, Jr.   A sticker on the back of the slab reads, C. Meyer, 2/91 – The day we met.  I asked Tim for an explanation.

Fun story: I bought the 1824 O.104 and the 1825 O.105 from Swampy the day we met in February 1991.  I was the newest club member with 105 marriages. The census showed Swampy at the top and me at the bottom. Feeling sorry for his fellow Louisianian, he drove down to South Louisiana to introduce himself and brought with him a hefty box of dupes to supply my need. Swampy started telling bust half stories as only he could. After several hours of coin talk and a nice dinner at Cafe Vermilionville, he headed back home with most of my money and helped me start the slow but rewarding journey up the census.

The coin features fabulous iridescent toning, favoring shades of gold, aqua and vermillion.  

Estimate: Priceless!
