First, let the provenance sink in for a moment, and imagine your name added to that impressive pedigree chain. Realize also that this frosty, lustrous, borderline SUPERB GEM 67, is tied for FINEST graded at PCGS and deserving so! David Akers, in his cataloging of this coin in the Thaine Price Collection stated that this was “an outstanding example.

It is sharply struck with superb luster and a very attractive speckled reddish-gold toning. There are only a couple of microscopic marks on the entire coin and its overall eye appeal matches its extremely high technical quality.. A bold glowing luster beams from all over. it is apparent that Gems of the caliber of this piece are quite rare and very desirable. Mr. Akers was correct that in such a lofty state of preservation, the 15-D, is quite RARE.

PCGS 23, NGC 9, CAC 15. Ex Norweb Collection, Bowers and Merena, November 1988, lot 3665, as “MS65”. According to our sale room copy, the lot opened at $1,000 and hammered at $7,000. Later it appeared in Thaine B. Price Collection, David Akers, May 1998, lot 195, as Gem Uncirculated, where it realized $7,150; later still in the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor Collection, Heritage, August 2010, lot 3244 where it was graded PCGS MS66+ CAC and realized $6,900. Today, we think this coin will see very strong bidding. Remember your name can now be associated with a pedigree chain that goes back to three major collections of Barber halves. Even after all that mumbo jumbo, just know the coin is REALLY high end!
