1828 Sq. Base Knob 2, Lg. 8s - O.108 R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC
Yet another bust half with original iridescent album toning. Luster is not as vibrant in the fields as some 58s but the coin offers terrific eye appeal. PCGS and CAC agreed. This is a distinct Red Book variety. Just two of twenty-three die pairs in 1828 feature a square base knobbed 2 with large 8s. Tim has held the coin since purchasing it from Alpine Numismatics in November 1997.
Estimate: $900 to $1,200
