Don Willis: The 1814 E/A is very difficult to find in AU58 or better. A few years ago when I was putting together the PREMIUM set of CBHs I was trying to find an AU58 example of every Registry set variety. At that time the pop for the E/A was two in 58 and none better save a single MS64. Even though I had a nice AU55 example, I had all but given up hope that I would every locate one of the AU58 pieces. Then on the opening day of the Houston Money show a gentleman walked up to our table and said " I have something that Don may be interested in." Sure enough, it was an 1814 E/A in AU58! Trying to remain calm, I asked what he wanted for it. His reply was that I would have a better idea what it was worth. So I looked it up on all the price guides and then told him I thought they were all too low. We agreed on a slightly higher price and it was mine!
