1831 Overton Plate Coin - O.111 R.1 PCGS AU 55
Overton Plate Coin. Exquisitely detailed central devices. Untoned with even, soft luster throughout. This was Al Overton’s set piece, plated in his 1970 2nd edition. Don Parsley used the plate in each of his three revisions, starting in 1990. Don found a better example between 1990 and 1993 when I brokered a sale of the Overton Collection. This coin escaped into the collection of John Crowley (via MB 5, Aug. 1991, lot 140) before that sale occurred, making it one of the few Overton Plate coins to reach the open market. It reappeared in MB 27, April 2002, lot 152, bringing $1,120 as a still raw AU. Auction tags and Don Parsley’s personal tag survive and accompany the lot. The coin is offered without reserve. Be assured, it will not be overlooked. Est. $1,000 and up.
