1831 -  O.110 R.2 PCGS AU 55 CAC


The epitome of an original bust half-dollar.  The dusty grey patina speaks volumes.  It tells us that stewards of this coin for the past 190 years avoided the temptation to clean or otherwise “improve” it.  The razor sharp reverse is a happy bonus.  The obverse die was used earlier on the 1831 O.109 and always shows wear.  Here is a coin for the connoisseur.   Brian Greer offered the coin to Tim in June 1999.  There was not a moment’s hesitation.   

Estimate: $600 to $800
