1826 - O.103 R.5- PCGS AU 58 CAC
Steve Herrman notes but 2 AU 58’s in the Condition Census. Keith Davignon’s AU 58 example (ex-Russ Logan), also sported a CAC sticker. It brought $5,528 in my Jan. 2017 FUN Sale, MB 44 lot 51. This beautifully preserved specimen is no less desirable. The strike is exceptional for this often poorly impressed die pair. Luster discretely dances under a veneer of wholesome grey toning. I often say that high grade R.5’s are caviar to die variety collectors. Pass the blinis. Est. $4,000 to $6,000.
