1827 Curl Base 2 - O.147 R.4- PCGS Gold Shield MS 62
Should someone offer a bet that you will find a mark on this remarkable coin, don’t take it! The surfaces, shrouded in original sunset colors, are impeccable. Full luster illuminates the fields. I wonder whether a bit of darkness on Liberty’s cheek and bosom scared CAC. Of the many working dies employed to strike coins in 1827 only one was prepared with a curl base 2. Its first marriage was to the far more common O.146. Tim found this coin in my bourse case during the January 2012 FUN Show.
Estimate: $2,750 to $3,250
