1826 -  O.115 R.5- PCGS AU 58 CAC

This is a special coin.  Mint luster glows under a primeval veneer of “grey dirt.”  The strike is exceptional, clearly an early product of the dies.  With a loupe I found a couple of hairlines around the eagle’s head.  There no marks to suggest that the coin saw circulation.  Caviar?  Peacock’s tongue?  A CAC approved R.5 this nice cannot be ignored.  Est. $2500 to $3,000.
