1832 Sm Lets -  O.106 R.1 PCGS AU 55 CAC

Ex Robinson S. Brown, Jr.   A glistening AU with full luster and subtle champagne toning.  The coin is everyone’s AU 58.  I expect no disagreement.  Robbie Brown acquired it in an NGC AU 58 holder in 1989.  Tim was the successful bidder in my “Brown Part 3 Sale,” (MB 15, lot 66) at the 1995 ANA Convention in Anaheim.  I wrote, “Blazing luster with faint rub on the cheek – a real ‘58.’  The strike is a wonder: 13 star points, high rims, full dentils, curls, feathers and talons -- features rarely seen on 1832s.”  Tim’s notes on the coin are brief and to the point: “A blazer; ‘A’ eye appeal.”  

Estimate: $800 and up
