1812 Single Leaf - O.110b R.6 PCGS Gen. VF Details
A third time visitor. I offered it privately several years ago. It returned for a place in my Aug. 2015 ANA sale, MB 41, lot 25, with the following description: The rarity – and cost – of this Red Book variety is such that most collectors never expect to add it to their collections. A dozen or so examples are known. This one was plucked from circulation and turned into a brooch. The pin, once anchored to the reverse, is missing. Clumsy solder marks survive. The obverse sports a natural patina that nicely conceals a nick and faint scratches in the left field. So display this rarity face up! Barry Broyde’s VF example (ex Elton Dosier) found a new home last month at $9,000 in Stack’s/Bowers Baltimore Sale, lot 7119. There is no reserve on this one. Given the demand and extreme rarity of the issue it will not be overlooked. Est. ???
