Ex Troy Nelson One of several “stoppers” in the daunting quest to complete a die variety set of 1827’s. This die pair started life as “R.8” in Overton’s early editions. Over the last 50+ years, the rarity rating dropped to R.5. It takes but one hand to count the number of high-grade pieces. CAC-approved examples are exceedingly rare. I recall handling only one other, a PCGS XF 45 in 2019 that sold for $3,3630. This is Troy Nelson’s (Allgood Collection) set piece, offered by Heritage in January 2011, lot 3703 at $2,185. The coin is lightly toned, free of significant marks and sports a fair amount of luster. A quality coin for a first-class die variety collection. Estimate: $2,000 and up
