1832 No Tail Feathers -  O.120a R.3 PCGS MS 61

From the collection of Dr. Charles Link.  An early die state of the “a-model.”  The three obverse die cracks are spiderweb thin.  The eagle’s tail feathers are missing on this popular – and scarce - variety. Cartwheel luster, light toning and pleasing surfaces are further enticements.  The coin carries a marvelous provenance: Gehring Prouty and Keith Davignon preceded Dr. Link’s ownership.  Keith acquired it privately in 2003.  It last appeared in my Jan. 2014 FUN Sale, MB 38 lot 83, where it brought $2,517 (as PCGS AU 58 with a CAC sticker).   Est. $2,000 to $3,000.
