1805 -  O.105a, T-12 R.6 PCGS F.12 CAC

A charming companion to the preceding 1805 O.104a.  This time the impressive cud is on the reverse.  Natural antique grey toning, even wear and minimal surface marks earned this R.6- rarity a CAC sticker.  Steve found the coin in Heritage’s Nov. 2017 sale.  (Lot 17091 @ $2,880).  A lesser quality, later die state, brought $3,840 two months later when Heritage offered the Loma Linda Collection.  (Jan. 2018, lot 8249, PCGS VG 10.)  Yes, collectors DO covet early bust halves with retained cuds.  
Estimate: $2,200 to $3,000
