1818 - O.109a R.1 PCGS Shield MS 61
Ex Dr. Charles Link collection as noted on the PCGS label. Sunglasses are the ticket for this amazing 1818. The fresh, untoned surfaces look just as they did when the coin was ejected from the coining chamber 200+ years ago. Have you noticed the strike? Every curl and feather is there. Thirteen stars with centerpoints adjoin a full complement of dentils. I see a few hairlines around the eagle’s head and a short drift mark between the last 2 digits of the date. Neither affects the eye-appeal. Est. $2,750 to $3,500.
