Ex Louis Eliasberg. This was lot 1832 in the April 1997 sale of Eliasberg’s bust halves, where it sold at a modest $1,760. It has the familiar “look” of his early half-dollars. A silver patina adorns the surfaces, darker through the stars and legend. The strike is first rate. Luster is deep and undisturbed. A quality coin with an unsurpassed provenance.
Estimate: $2,200 to $2,700
