Another outstanding find guys (all of them actually)!

You do know that Bust 1/2s and Morgans are my "specialty"!? lol

I mean = they are my most highly prized coins of all the US minted coins of all time and I know/collect and study them more than any other/s! (Seated 1/2s = strong 3rd)!

That one is in outstanding condition (XF all the way) with most likely AU detail but a dug coin will never get a professional grade of "au/bu" because of environmental factors stripping the "Luster" of the coin away which once gone = gone forever even IF the "details" are still au/bu. (and I'm sure you know that Ron) but I'm just stating it for others here than may not know this fact Yes

BUT

That specific one is the Small date, small stars, small letters variety and if I had found it = I'd be xxxxing my pants all the way home!

Congrats on such a rare/nice find!

That's some good info, Wayne. I got a free education Yes

Here's a question I have...

I understand coins are valued/graded based on mintage, condition, date, etc., but, out of ALL the factors, which do you think has the most bearing on price?

If I had to guess, I would say mintage, because even if a coin is in POS condition, but there were only say, 200,000 minted, with maybe a few hundred floating around in circulation, the value would be astronomical. But that's only a guess.

That wolf button is very interesting, I think it is of British origin. Try a google image search for "wolf livery button" and several similar but different wolf head buttons can be seen, Here's a pic of a similar but diff. one
