    I do not think it was part of the census of known Higleys. The variety is the value me as you please with the three hammers on the back.

    I hope it is not one of the copies made by Robinson in 1861 or from the Bolen dies in 1864, which would be very similar to what you think you see on the reverse, compared to the Robinson copy. Hopefully Dan Freidus will provide you with the right information or contact for authentication, which should be accomplished by him or someone he recommends.

    just wanted to see if you or anyone else has heard from Dan on the matter

    You might get close to 100% there, but most won't authenticate a coin without an in person inspection. What you should be hoping for is it jumps out at him as a particular variety, and I think that has everything to do with matching the "CO".

    Every day for you must feel like a week.


    Right now I see the worst case scenario as the coin being confirmed but the variety inconclusive. That would put a good hurt on the value, but the bragging rights will still be immense.
