1836 Beaded Border - O.106a R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC
I hear a clamor for this one from Registry Set collectors. Silver-grey toning blankets the lustrous surfaces. High grade examples – with a complete set of beads, as here – are genuinely scarce. The reverse die was first used to strike the extremely rare crushed lettered edge proofs dated 1833, 1834 and 1835. (They were struck in 1836 alongside 1804 dollars.) The die was then used to strike coins for general circulation. Est. $1,850 to $2,500.
