Ex Charles De Olden. The only mint state example listed in Herrman’s latest AMBPR.. The coin went unsold in my sale of the De Olden Collection, June 2006, lot 30. Link acquired it after the sale. Here is the description: Undescribed late die state, with superb luster, surfaces and eye appeal! Light gold toning, yielding to intense iridescence at the rims, an utterly charming coin. The early state of the obverse die, the so-called “punctuated date,” has a sharp dot between the 1 and 7. Oddly, the latest die state (as here) develops a different dot, somewhat closer to the 7. A minor die injury is the likely explanation. The PCGS label includes the Link provenance and attribution as O.103a.
Estimate: $8,000 to $12,000
