There are six over-dated die pairs in 1819. Only one was struck from a working die prepared with the “small 9” punch. Just two CAC-approved PCGS AU 58’s have ever appeared at auction, this one and the Eliasberg coin (MB 43, lot 30, Aug. 2016 @ $3,906). When David Kahn consigned this piece to MB 45, my 2018 ANA Sale, I described lot 77 as follows: “… beautifully struck. The brilliant, untoned surfaces are awash in luster and devoid of marks. A bit of antique toning flutters through ES OF AM on the reverse. Nice!” Howard Sharfman prevailed at $3,740. His BHNC colleague Tom Sears later acquired it by private treaty.Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
