Ex Norweb and Henry Hilgard Lot 3082 from B&M’s Nov. 1988 sale of the Norweb Collection, offered as a raw AU. I purchased the coin ($522) as agent for my late, great friend Henry Hilgard. If you knew Henry, you expect the coin to be well struck, have original color and immaculate surfaces. This one qualifies – in spades. The toning is spectacular, the surfaces smooth as glass. Henry agreed to part with the coin in September 1989. Tim did not hesitate. This is a “WOW” AU 53 with a wonderful pedigree - and an R.4 to boot!
Estimate: $700 to $900
