1834 Sm. Date and Lets. Double Struck -  O.111 R.1 XF

Ex Gerald Schertz and Charlton E. Meyer, Jr. 
Henry’s note: Dentil tracks across star 7, indicating a second hit by the die.  “Partial double strike” is Downey’s description from MB #18 where this coin was lot #164 and sold to Charlton Meyer @ $365.00.  Purchased by me from Sheridan Downey along with other errors from Charlton Meyer’s collection in 2009.  

Henry figured his cost at $500.  Dr. Schertz’ tag accompanies, showing his purchase on April 7, 1986 (for $55!).  Meyer used the Schertz tag to write his source, “Downey #18” and coded cost, RMH = $365.  The coin is light grey and hairlined, with a pin scratch between stars 4 and 5 into the field.  

Estimate: $300 to $500
