1812 Single Leaf  O.110b R.6 PCGS F.15

Struck from the same workhorse die pair as the preceding lot.  Hard to believe.  Here is a glorious exception to the homely, scratched or otherwise damaged examples we have seen of late.  Just over a dozen pieces are known.  This one has been off the market since it debuted as a raw VF 20 in MB 31, July 2005 lot 87 @ $3,631.  (My SF ANA sale that included the Burke/Parsley 1817/4.)  Here is a problem-free example with medium grey toning, lighter on the devices.  It will make a wonderful addition to an advanced Red Book or die variety collection.  I will stick with my grade, VF 20.  PCGS graders have trouble distinguishing circulation wear from soft devices attributable to aging, worn dies.   Estimate: $4,000 and up
