1813 -  O.102 R.3 PCGS AU 53

Ex Floyd Farley   A scarce variety and necessary evil for die variety collectors.  Ms. Liberty, the surrounding stars and dentils are always weak.  The obverse die was first used on the 1813 50/UNI O.101 and shows its age.  The reverse die is new and nicely detailed, grading 5 or more points higher than the obverse.  Tim acquired the coin from Floyd Farley, BHNC #2, in December 1992.  The somewhat irregular toning is a product of storage in a kraft envelope.  In the 1960s, Floyd dipped his coins.  After he met Tom Bay (another early BHNC member) and viewed his collection, Floyd adopted Tom’s practice of storing his bust halves in brown kraft envelopes.  A wise choice. Estimate: $700 to $1,000
