1832 Sm. Lets. -  O.115 R.1 PCGS AU 53

Ex Robinson S. Brown, Jr.   Robbie Brown acquired this coin in my February 1992 Mail Bid Sale No.8.  It appeared again in my August 1995 Mail Bid Sale No. 15 that featured Part 3 of the Brown Collection.  Here is the brief description of lot 68, then in an NGC AU 58 capsule: Frosty cartwheel luster.  Later die state, with shallow dentils and drawn stars.  Motto weak at PLU.  Tim prevailed at $380.  There is too much luster for a “53.”  Perhaps the PCGS graders did not understand or care for the soft rims that hallmark a late die state.   Estimate: $400 to $550
