This dazzling rarity is making its auction debut. It rests at #3 in the Condition Census, behind the Overton Plate Coin, NGC MS 65, and the PCGS MS 62 Dosier/Prouty example. Stewart Witham’s PCGS AU 58 is a notch behind this one. (I was the winning bidder at Heritage’s 2010 ANA offering of the Witham coin, lot 4905 @ $3,000.) Howard Sharfman uncovered this piece in a dealer’s case in 2016 and passed it to our consignor in 2019 via private treaty. The coin is lightly toned with full luster. It earned a CAC sticker despite the ubiquitous softness at the obverse rims and stars. (The obverse die is in its 3rd and final use, appearing earlier on the O.121 and O.122.)Estimate: $3,000 to $3,500
