Owner's Comments

O.114 R5. Possible Tie second finest Known. From the Charlton Meyer Collection of capped Bust Halves [the only public-disclosed complete set of 450 die marriages listed in AL Overton's reference]. Provence Ex: Pugh and Ghering Prouty Collection. Only four mint state examples of this popular redbook variety exist. The current finest known is a PCGS MS63 in a southern collection of Capped Bust Halves and is listed in the PCGS registry. This coin is tied or perhaps has bit finer surfaces than the Ex: Reiver NGC MS63 coin. The fourth condition census coin IMHO is Ex:Witham in a PCGS MS62 holder. This coin was obtained from Sheridan Downey Mail Bid Sale on 7/30/2008 of the Charlton Meyer Collection.
