A high-end example of a common die marriage. Creamy luster coats the lightly toned, smooth surfaces. You may need your imagination to find any rub on the coin. Veteran collectors use the oxymoron “AU 62” to describe bust halves of this quality. Formerly in the collection of Barry Broyde, BHNC member #104. Stack’s-Bowers sold his notable collection in a series of sales after his death in September 2018, adopting the novel pseudonym E. Horatio Morgan. This coin brought $1,590 in November 2019.
Estimate: $1,400 to $1,600
