1828 Sq, 2, Sm. 8's, Lg Let. O.123a R.5+ PCGS XF 45 CAC
If asked to identify the toughest R.5s in the Capped Bust series, experienced collectors are likely to place this die pair in the top 3. Here is a handsome representative of the meager population. The coin is evenly toned, decently struck and free of any discernable blemish. We might hope for more luster on our XF-45s but the detail of this coin justifies the CAC approved grade. The coin comes with the usual hallmarks of the marriage: a die break at the rim between stars 5-6 and an injury to the reverse die, Overton’s “railroad tracks,” under the eagle’s left wing.Estimate: $3,500 to $4,000
