1820 Small Date, Curl 2 O.103 R.1 PCGS AU 58 OGH CAC
Another old friend, encased in a first generation (“rattler”) PCGS holder. I acquired the coin in 1989 and sold it to George Hamilton in October that year. It comes with the kraft envelope in which Stack’s offered the coin as lot 759 in its March 1959 sale of The Pelletreau Collection. With deserved hoopla Heritage offered the Hamilton collection at its 2016 Anaheim ANA Sale. Charles De Olden prevailed at $3,760. During the 2017 FUN Show De Olden lost several coins in a professionally planned theft. The disheartening event prompted him to sell his remaining coins. Dr. Link acquired this piece, later consigning it to Legend’s Sept. 2018 sale of The Konstantine Collection where it again yielded $3,760. After previewing the lot I wrote, “Sweet AU 58 with original grey patina.” The surfaces are immaculate, the luster deep and undisturbed. The coin changed hands again in July 2019, selling for $4,450. Their will be no lack of suitors for this special coin.Estimate: $4,000 and up
