1805 -  O.111, T-3 R.2 PCGS XF 45+ CAC

A bow of gratitude to the stewards of this half-dollar over the past 217 years.  The surfaces are extraordinary for a lightly circulated half-dollar, virtually pristine.  A protective blanket of antique toning remains undisturbed.  Luster proudly frames the stars and legend.  A battle royale ensued when Heritage offered this prize in its October 2020 auction (lot 18165 from the Maurice Storck Collection).  When the dust settled Steve Nomura prevailed at $3,960, stark confirmation of the demand for quality in early half-dollars.   Estimate:  $3,000 to $4,000
