1828 Sm. Letters Reverse -  O.119 R.3 PCGS AU 55 CAC

Yes!  Another one – also off the market for decades.  This high-grade Small Letters Reverse last traded hands February 26, 1977.  It comes to us from the Beaver Falls Collection.  (Look for more half-dollars from the collection in my FUN bourse case.  Half-dimes and dimes too!)  The coin is superbly toned in iridescent shades of gold, with occasional splashes of aqua and turquoise.  Strong luster and a decent, balanced strike contributed to the award of a CAC sticker.  Choice, eye-appealing examples of this Red Book variety routinely put price guides to shame.  You’ve been warned.   Estimate: $2,000 and up
