1828 Curl 2, No Knob - O.101 Prime R.? PCGS AU 55
From the collection of Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label. A vast majority of this die pair come with a chip in the F of OF. In their attribution guides Overton and Peterson note that a few `28-101’s lack the chip. I’m not sure that I’ve handled an example. Certainly not recently. Here is a true prime O.101: die lines are below the bust, the die chip is missing and the surfaces retain hints of a prooflike quality. An important offering for students of the series. Oh, the coin is lovely! Pale rose and silver toning, lots of luster and nice surfaces. Est. $800 and up.
