1811 Small 8 -  O.106 R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Ex Tom Palmer  Silver-grey, infused with pastel gold.  Boisterous luster, suggesting minimal if any actual circulation.  From the magnificent Redbook collection of Tom Palmer.  My slideshow presentations as well as the video on Capped Bust Halves produced by David Lisot featured capped bust halves from Tom’s collection.  In 2008 I purchased his collection intact.  Tim Osborne found this 1811 to his liking.  So will the next owner.  Tom sent me an email from his Florida home on June 23, 2023, offering this reminder: I bought this beauty in November 1984 from Stack's for $300. They described it as choice AU.  It looks as good as ever!  Tom

Estimate:  $1,800 to $2,500
