1832 Sm. Lets. - O.114 R.4+ PCGS MS 62
From the collection of Keith Davignon. A gorgeous example of this noted rarity. Keith acquired the coin from Dr. Charles Link during the 2010 ANA Convention in Boston. It is the 2nd or 3rd finest known of the variety. Lustrous surfaces are painted with colorful, iridescent shades of amber, russet and turquoise. The surfaces are excellent; I see only miniscule signs of contact. The obverse die, appearing first on the O.113, was nearing its end when married to a new reverse. Weak rims and drawn stars are mandatory. A quick key for cherry pickers is star 9. It is the only one with a center-point. The others are flat. This is a very important coin. Est. 3,000 to $4,000.
