1820 Lg. Date, Sq. Base 2, No Knob  O.106 R.1 PCGS Shield AU 58

Extremely early die state, sharply impressed and prooflike!  The usual bulge in the obverse die, from bust to stars 1-2, is absent.   An earlier NGC label accompanies, “AU 58 PL.”  The coin is untoned with cabinet friction and lightly disturbed fields but exhibits no sign of having entered circulation.  The mirror-like surfaces showcase extraordinary detail in the dentils and central devices.  Note, particularly, the eagle’s wings and claws.  I find no record of the coin having appeared at auction.   Estimate: $2,750 to $3,500
