1828 Curl 2 with Knob -  O.107 R.1 PCGS MS 62

A mere R.1, but under great pressure from Red Book collectors.  Of 23 die pairs in the year only this and the rare 1828 O.106 feature a curl and knobbed 2.  Not a suggestion of friction is found on this uncirculated coin.  The luster and strike are first rate.  It is remarkable that three 1827 O.107s in this grade appeared last year.  The Scotsman, Stack’s/Bowers and I were the lucky purveyors.  Prices ranged from $2,760 to over $3,500.  From Alpine Numismatics in March 1996.   Estimate: $2,500 to $3,000
