1813 -  O.107a R.1 PCGS Gold Shield AU 58+ CAC

A dream coin for PCGS Registry Set members.  This was Howard Sharfman’s coin during his tenure at the top of the Everyman Registry Set for Capped Bust Half-Dollars (1807-1839).   I was thrilled to purchase the set intact at the January 2019 FUN Show.  I offered this coin at $3,250 with a brief description: Gossamer gold patina with cartwheel luster.  Ms. Liberty showcases full curls and drapery lines; the eagle’s head and left wing are soft, as usual on this die pair.  A very pretty coin with abundant die breaks and clash marks.  The current consignor won out over several others who ordered the coin.  Disappointed collectors at the time will relish this second chance, a bit of repechage if you will.

Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
