1814 -  O.107a R.5 PCGS VF 35

The latest die state I’ve encountered.  Struck from worn and heavily clashed dies.  The distinctive die chip, or “mouse,” on Liberty’s nose is diagnostic of this rare subvariety.  Medium grey toning in the fields, lighter across the devices.  Struck from the same dies as the celebrated 1814 Platinum half-dollars, J.44 and J.44a.  We know that those off-metal patterns were struck in 1814 (not post-1814 “restrikes”) because they lack the referenced “mouse.”  Est. $350 to $550.
