1828 Sq. Base 2, Sm.8s, Lg. Lets -  O.122 R.3 PCGS AU 58

Ex Gehring Prouty   Another beautifully struck 1828.  Perhaps a hint of softness at the lower drapery lines.  Liberty’s curls are exquisitely detailed.  Full luster glorifies the untoned surfaces.  (A toning spot lies right of the date.)  Early die state.  The die break between stars 5-6 has just appeared.  Tim was Gehring Prouty’s closest friend in the BHNC.  I awarded Tim first choice of up to 20 coins from the Prouty Collection at the 2000 ANA Convention in Philadelphia.  He selected this and 19 others from the 800+ bust halves available to him.  

Estimate: $950 to $1,250
