1806 E over A - O.124, T-22 R.6 PCGS F.15
How many “fines” retain luster through their stars and legend? The typical striking weakness in LIBERTY’S lower curls and the eagle’s wings misled the PCGS graders. Check out the detail in the drapery lines and shield. You will get a handle on the actual sharpness grade of this seriously rare variety. Dipped a few decades back, the coin now features pleasant light grey toning. The surfaces are generally smooth while exhibiting the usual contact marks from circulation. An unobtrusive hairline runs from the rim, through the arrows to the eagle’s left wing. Nothing else deserves mention. This is a “killer” die pair, chased by die variety and Red Book collectors. Est. $2,300 to $3,000.
