Ex Dr. Gerald Schertz. From Mail Bid Sale 12, July 1994, lot 49. Consigned by Dr. Schertz who acquired it from Berkshire Hills Coins in 1981. Offered as a raw XF: A pleasing original crust of “grey dirt” enhances the eye appeal of this lightly circulated coin. Excess luster for the assigned grade. When you want to show your colleagues an “original” bust half trot this one out.
Estimate: $300 to $400
