1826 -  O.109 R.1 PCGS AU 55 CAC


Ex Charlton E. Meyer, Jr.  Meyer provenance noted on label.  Charlton purchased the coin from Julian Leidman during the 1987 summer ANA Convention.  Swampy settled on a grade of MS 61.  I agreed with him and was disappointed in the AU 55 grade assigned by PCGS in 2008.  There is a trace of friction on Liberty’s highest curls and, perhaps, the eagle’s wing tips.  Luster is unbroken though softened by the antique grey patina.  Another example of an “original” bust half.  

Estimate: $700 to $900
