1806/5 -  O.103, T-8 R.2 PCGS AU 50 CAC

Silver-grey toning, matching Floyd Farley’s definition of “grey dirt,” an indisputable marker of originality.  Luster glows in the fields and sparkles around the stars and legend.  Light friction on the high points.  The surfaces are essentially free of marks.  The CAC sticker supports those who might argue for a higher grade.  It took $4,320 to win the coin in Heritage’s October 2020 sale, lot 3375.  PCGS now pegs the value at $4,750 while the Greysheet suggests a range of $4,300 to $5,380.  Estimate: $4,000 to $4,750
