1818/7 Lg. 8 -  O.101a R.1 PCGS AU 58 CAC

From the collection of Dr. Charles Link though not noted on the PCGS label.  Boisterous, unbroken luster rolls across the untoned surfaces.  The curls under Liberty’s cap are sharp.  Die wear weakened the lowest drapery lines and eagle’s head.  This is an eye-catching example of the overdate.  Jim Ross has just published a startling revelation regarding the obverse die.  It is not merely an 1818 over 7.  It is an 1818 over 7 over 3!  Yes, the die was prepared by John Reich in 1813When it went unused that year it was over-dated in 1817.  Again, it went unused.  Finally, in 1818, it was over-dated a 2nd time and put to use on the O.101 and O.103 die pairs of that year.  You may read Jim’s convincing analysis in the Nov. 2018 edition of the John Reich Journal, vol. 28, issue 3, p. 12.  $3,250 to $4,250.
