From the Long Island Collection. An original bust half with a handsome “grey dirt” obverse and an outrageously colorful reverse that features shades of magenta and crimson. Weak rims suggest a late die state. The central devices, however, are decently impressed. Recently removed from an NGC MS 62 capsule. (The NGC label accompanies.) Last offered at Heritage’s 1999 FUN Show Sale, lot 6725. Do not be dulled by this parade of high grade 1810s. This is a “killer” date in AU and UNC. $3,250 to $4,250.
