1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.117 R.3 PCGS AU 53

Ex Floyd Farley and Charlton Meyer   Brilliant and untoned with nice surfaces and way too much luster for a “53.”  It became Charlton Meyer’s set piece after he acquired it from Floyd Farley at the August 1975 ANA Convention in Los Angeles.  Farley, newcomers should know, was cofounder of the Bust Half Nut Club and the first to assemble a complete set of capped bust halves by Overton variety, including a choice VF 1817/4.  He dipped his coins (“I want to see what’s there,” he explained) then stored them in paper envelopes.  The Meyer provenance is noted on the PCGS label.  

Estimate: $400 to $550
