Just another crusty busty …

Just another crusty busty …
I think I'm a little lusty
for the depth of that crusty ...

Yeah, okay. Get that one out of your head now! :D

NEWP I found last week while searching and then had a few back and forth’s with the Dealer before I committed to buy it.

Pretty sure I am on with the attribution.

Play guess the grade, comment about if you like or don't, any and all thoughts welcome.

1825 O-116

    Nice coin!

    I don't collect these, and probably can't afford to.....but when all is said and done I'd like to have just one nice CircCam example in my collection.

    No idea on grade, but thanks for sharing!

    Very nice, great eye appeal. 45.

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 8,707 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Beautiful, I would say 45 also. Thanks for sharing.

    Gotta go 45 as well. Original old silver coin look. I like it.

  • scotty4449scotty4449 Posts: 662 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I love it, I would guess AU53.

    Wow, Todd...another beautiful and crusty Busty with amazing skin on it!
    Congrats on adding this one to your set.

    It has an excellent strike, can’t really tell the luster based on the pics, but I’d be in the 53-55 range.

    And you’re right on target with the Overton #, it’s certainly a 116.

    1. Looks like lots of underlying luster.

    I'll go with a 53 as well. Nice coin to

  • lkeigwinlkeigwin Posts: 16,878 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Another excellent choice, Original Todd.

    The weakness at the drapery, and at AT in STATES, is common for this die marriage. AU53 is my bet.

    I don't even bother double-checking your attributions anymore.

    Beautiful coin.

    And may I also add that I think this photo and the photo of your bust quarter in another thread are awesome. There is no doubt as to what the coin would actually look like

    I’m in the AU53 crowd, as well. You XF guys are too tight.

    Edited to add: I agree with the previous comment about the excellent photos.

    Very nice 55.

    Really great pictures, and that coin lends new dimensions to the term 'crust'. Certainly mid AU...Cheers, RickO

  • Batman23Batman23 Posts: 4,991 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Some nice luster is still visible. I think some of the XF guys are looking at strike weakness as wear. Nice looking Bust! I'll guess 53.

  • ThreeCentSilverFLThreeCentSilverFL Posts: 1,655 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I like it. I’ll go AU53 maybe 55. Nice color.

  • OKbustchaserOKbustchaser Posts: 5,410 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I like it as a 50 to 53. Good looking coin.

    Just because I'm old doesn't mean I don't love to look at a pretty bust.

    Nice CBH ... I am in at AU-55.

    Nice eye.

    Looks like you are on your way to 100 DMs ... and the BHNC!

    Too tight? Is that a euphemism for wrong? ;)

    Yes😉 and I’ll say the same, even if the coin actually graded less than 50.

    Thank you for all the nice comments on the coin, and on the photo's! And I see someone laughed at my silly ditty.

    I think I still need to work on my photo skills, and even was lamenting a little last night about that, so some of the comments this morning are encouraging. I've improved, but still evolving. On this coin I didn't fully capture the luster, which with the deeper skinned coins like this is still a learning experience for me.

    The coin is in an older blue AU55 holder, and I think it is accurately graded as such.
