1834 Sm Date and Lets. -  O.115 R.2 PCGS Shield MS 62

The PCGS label identifies both collectors.  My mentor, Elton Dosier, frequently reminded me that the Witham collection “had more true UNCs than any other.”  Here is a lovely, original 1834.  Caky luster rolls through the silver-grey fields and across Liberty's cheek.  A beguiling halo of gold and aqua iridescence circles the stars.  The reverse, with slightly darker toning, is equally lustrous and original.  In all, a nice coin with an impressive provenance.  Lot 4933 in Heritage's August 2010 sale of selections from the Witham collection. Estimate: $1,200 to $1,500
