Outrageous original toning, likely from storage in tissue paper. Luster envelops the stars and legend. Weakness at the eagle’s head and left wing are standard for this rare die pair. I spotted the piece back in 1997, raw and unattributed in a Heritage Long Beach auction. (Note the 4 equidistant stars and I left of T.) I sold the coin to a sophisticated collector who kept it in his cabinet for the last 23+ years. My sales tag from 1997 and the consignor’s kraft envelope with personal notes accompany the lot. The O.113 is the scarcer die pair of the R.5 trio, O.112-113-114.Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
